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!
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.
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?
Who else is excited that the newest season of Shahs of Sunset has finally arrived? Since we last saw the Shahs crew, there’s been one bombshell story in the news after the other. I’m not sure if they are even going to be able to fit all of the drama into one season.
For starters, Mercedes “MJ” Javid had a miscarriage scare and a near death experience after the birth of her son. She also had a major falling out with her best friend Reza Farahan, which might have prompted her husband Tommy Feight to allegedly vandalize Reza’s home. And if you think that’s crazy, according to Mike Shouhed, we haven’t seen anything yet.
It’s been way too long since Shahs of Sunset has been on my TV. It’s kind of weird timing for the show to return since the Academy Awards are on tonight as well, but I am thankful for my DVR.
After last season’s dramatic reunion, Reza Farahan and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi decide to make up for the millionth time. However, GG and Destiney Rose are still at odds, not that I am at-all-invested in anything Destiney has going on since I feel like we barely got to know her last season.
The Shahs of Sunset crew has had nothing but drama and bad news as of late. Former best friends, Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid, had a major falling out. It got so bad that Reza filed a restraining order against MJ’s husband, Tommy Feight. I don’t see that friendship being repaired in the upcoming season!
Coincidentally, there’s also a feud between Reza and Mike Shouhed. Apparently, Reza is none too pleased that his face is on one of the designs in Mike’s t-shirt line. No offense to Reza, but I don’t see a t-shirt with his face flying off shelves anytime soon. Even though it has been mostly doom and gloom, there is actually some good news to report! And it involves former Shahs cast member, Lilly Ghalichi.
