The original Shahs of Sunset cast members have all fallen out with each other at this point. The dynamics are constantly shifting from best friends to mortal enemies and everything else in between.
However, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and her husband Tommy Feight appear to be a solid couple, minus that whole trespassing and breaking flower pots thing. But, is there trouble in Paradise? MJ said some pretty shocking things on social media. I just want to know if Shahs of Sunset is filming right now.
Once a year, something exciting happens in Utah. As January wraps its icy hand around the state, celebrities descend on Park City for the Sundance Film Festival. For two weeks, the state most known for religion becomes the epicenter of the entertainment industry, with A-list stars and indie up-and-comers converging for an endless parade of premieres, parties and Park City moments. And this week, we get to experience it all through the fabulous lens of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
As a native Utahn, Sundance truly was the most fun I had all year. Every year of college, my friends and I would make a staycation out of it, renting a hotel suite in Park City and spending the weekend strolling Main Street and meeting celebs and Bravolebrities alike. In fact, Sundance was the very first time I ever encountered a Housewife in real life. Over the years, my BFFs and I met everyone from Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley to the Shahs of Sunset and the Vanderpump Rules gang. In fact, my most epic Sundance stories involve both Harry Styles and one particular A-list actor who shall remain nameless. But those are stories for another day. Let’s get into the recap, shall we?
This summer, Scheana Shay opened up about the miscarriage she experienced with Brock Davies. She shared that pregnant Stassi Schroeder was super supportive during that time, which apparently bothered Stassi even though it’s the only genuinely positive publicity she’s shared in a while. Now, Stassi and Scheana aren’t friends… again.
Scheana and Lala Kent publicly feuded when Scheana wasn’t invited to Lala and Randall Emmett’s gender reveal event. Then, Scheana crossed paths with Stassi and Lala at Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor’s gender reveal, which had to be awkward.
Last season on Real Housewives of Dallas, Brandi Redmond contemplated adopting another child. She and her husband Bryan Redmond already had three children, their daughter Brinkley and Brooklyn, and their son Bruin Redmond, who they adopted during a previous season.
Recently, Brandi confirmed that her family is growing. There’s another little Redmond on the way.
That same back and forth drama has also crossed over to Shahs of Sunset alum Lilly Ghalichi. She may not be on the show anymore, but her real life drama is mirroring that of her castmates. Just last year, Lilly’s husband, Dara Mir, filed for divorce. However, the couple reconciled and Lilly called it off. Lilly and Dara made it known that nothing was standing in their way as a couple when they were caught kissing passionately at their daughter’s birthday party. But, all is not as it seems as some sad news about the couple has recently come to light.
Last week we finally got the long over due first part of the Shahs of Sunset reunion. It was good to see the cast back together again, and hear their thoughts on the latest season. Noticeably absent however, was newcomer Sara Jeihooni. I guess Sara’s one storyline of being upset her younger brother hooked up with Destiney Rose wasn’t enough to merit her joining the reunion. Better luck next year, Sara!
Still, the rest of the cast was on hand to bring the drama. Mercedes Javid walked off at one point, and Golnesa Gharachedaghi heckled Nema Vand. I guess even motherhood can’t make GG more mature. The main highlight of the night though was the season long feud between MJ, Reza Farahan, and his husband, Adam Neely, over whether MJ encouraged Ali Ashouri to confront Reza with the NSFW texts Adam had sent him. And things got even more heated between MJ and the cast during part two of the reunion.
The long-awaited Shahs of Sunset season eight reunion has finally dropped! Recently, Bravo has delayed a lot of their shows for several weeks, such as the Real Housewives, but Shahs got the short end of the stick with a several month delay. Regardless, it’s better late than never. As Mike Shouhed claimed, Shahs is the best show that Bravo has.
When we last left the Shahs of Sunset crew, the camp was divided between team Mercedes Javid and team Reza Farahan. Things were so bad between the group that Golnesa Gharachedaghi, Reza, and Mike didn’t even attend MJ’s sip-and-see for her baby on the season finale. But, that is minor drama compared to the rest of the season. We had such gems as Tommy Feight tearing up Reza’s backyard for posting about his wife MJ’s pregnancy complications online. In turn, Reza put a restraining order against Tommy. And this all started because Reza thought MJ was responsible for spreading rumors about his husband Adam Neely having strip Jenga parties. So, what drama will happen during the reunion? Let’s find out!
The most recent Shahs of Sunset season centered around the Reza Farahan vs. Mercedes “MJ” Javid feud. They both said and did enough horrible things to each other that the cast seemed to completely overlook Adam Neely’s shadiness with the sexting/Jenga of it all.
Their beef took up so much screen time that we didn’t get nearly enough Sara Jeihooni. She joined the show as a friend of Reza’s and an ex-girlfriend of R. Kelly’s. Yes, that R. Kelly. Aside from watching Sara cringe while Destiney Rose tongued down Sara’s brother in Las Vegas, we didn’t get a ton of Sara-centered storylines.
