Shahs of Sunset
Shahs of Sunset had a very dramatic season. Mercedes Javid and Reza Farahan’s feud just kept getting worse. Reza and his husband Adam Neely have legal issues with MJ’s husband Tommy Feight. In case you forgot, Tommy vandalized their backyard and the whole incident was captured by security cameras. Destiney Rose hooked up with Sara Jeihooni’s brother.
Mike Shouhed declared (again) that he found the love of his life. We witnessed Golnesa Gharachedaghi’s heartbreaking journey to conceive, which included a miscarriage. There was a lot to discuss, but it never happened. Every other Bravo show got an Andy Cohen-hosted reunion via Zoom, but there was nothing for Shahs of Sunset. But don’t worry, you guys. There’s a very delayed reunion special on the way.
It’s only been one day since the reality show world was rocked to its core. In case you live under a rock, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist behavior. The target of their behavior was ex-cast mate, Faith Stowers, who is black. A few years ago, both Stassi and Kristen falsely accused her of stealing and called the cops on her. Their claims were completely baseless and cruel.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen being fired, Bravo also made the (correct call) to fire two more VPR stars. In the same announcement, Bravo confirmed that newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni are donzo. Honestly, this was long overdue considering we found out mid-season that Max and Brett have a history of racist tweets.
Even though almost no one seemed to know who Meghan Markle was before she got with Prince Harry, but, now, people are coming out of the woodwork, sharing their associations with her. It’s not just her paparazzi-calling dad or her hating half-sister.
Congratulations are in order for Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. Fans of the show are watching her difficult journey to motherhood this season. GG has been an open book about the ups and downs of using IVF and a sperm donor to conceive.
But earlier this week, GG gave birth to her baby boy Elijah!
Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
How is everyone feeling about this season of Shahs of Sunset? It feels like we waited forever just to have this season. Now that it’s here, I’m not really sure what to think. The show feels heavy and disjointed to me. Longtime cast member Golnesa Gharachedaghi has been on an IVF journey that ended in heartbreak. On a positive note, GG has gone on to have a successful pregnancy and is currently waiting the birth of her first child. Mike Shouhed is busy with another
sure to fail business venture, which happens every single season. Nema Vand? What is he bringing to the table this season? Shervin Roohparvar has been downgraded to a friend of, despite being in a ton of group scenes. #justiceforshervin. The only drama that is being brought to the table is between Reza Farahan and his best friend of 30 years, Mercedes “MJ” Javid.
As a quick recap, MJ is being accused of conspiring to take down Reza and Adam Neely’s marriage by spreading rumors of Adam’s transgressions. According to
my least favorite cast member, Destiney Rose, MJ put “friend of”, Ali Ashouri up to confronting Reza about the allegations. Those allegations include strip Jenga and inappropriate text messages that Ali describes as sexual harassment.
The whole thing blew up after a meeting between Ali and Reza, orchestrated by Destiney. Reza threw a glass of water in Ali’s face and MJ was somehow blamed for the whole thing. A huge (and controversial) fight erupted between Reza and MJ at a filmed pool party. This lead Reza to post a nastygram on social media about MJ, including her private medical history. Then her husband Tommy Feight went and broke some planters at Reza and Adam’s backyard, which resulted in a restraining order. Whew. Are you guys still following?
This season of Shahs of Sunset is just so messy. And really, it’s just so sad. It’s tough watching Reza Farahan and Mercedes Javid lose thirty years of friendship. The whole storyline is just so convoluted as well.
MJ allegedly had a hand in those rumors that Reza’s husband Adam Neely hosted naked Jenga games. During this same time period, MJ nearly died from some serious complications while she gave birth to her son. She is upset that Reza didn’t show up at the hospital. He posted some screenshots saying she told him not to go. This whole thing is so confusing. What’s true? What is just for a storyline? Well, regardless of all the confusing details, there’s one thing many fans are sure of: Reza went way too far during the last Shahs of Sunset episode. Reza told MJ, “Your uterus exploded because you had ten abortions.” Wow. What the f—.
