It appears that Shahs of Sunset’s Reza Farahan proposed to his boyfriend, Adam Neely, during the filming of this season of Shahs of Sunset. The happy event occurred during a taping of course when the crew was in Palm Springs last August. The proposal was kept on the downlow but will be shown on next week’s finale of Shahs of Sunset.
One would think that Reza would propose with a lot of fanfare and a healthy dose of emotion, but basically Reza just has a dinner party and tosses a Cartier bag at Adam during the dessert course. GG points out that the price tag is still on the box. What? Cartier puts price tags on their boxes? How gauche. Speaking of gauche, Mike says the price tag doesn’t matter because it is expensive. After Adam opens the box, Asa asks what it means and Reza laughs nervously and says to Adam, I love you, will you marry me?
I don’t know what to make of this. You know those Shahs just love to get engaged on camera, how many times has GG done that? Also, if Reza was so in love and getting married, wouldn’t he be sharing the news about himself with the world 24/7?
Reza gave a brief interview to People magazine who asked him how his family reacted. He said, “Not well!” Although they adore Adam, I didn’t tell them until last week so they didn’t appreciate the fact that I had kept such big news from them for so long. I waited five months! Persians are very opinionated and I didn’t want to hear anything negative around such a joyous event.”
I get that Reza supposedly had some sort of spiritual transformation on his trip to Turkey. But does he seem ready for marriage to you? You know, MARRIAGE, that thing where you compromise and make choices for the happiness of two people? Is this another gay couple rushing to get married just because they can?
Reza says they have not even thought about wedding plans yet. Does that sound like Reza to you? Shouldn’t he be touring The Palace of Versailles right about now and calling Dwight from RHOA to hire ballerinas? Or maybe getting on Kevin Lee’s appointment book for some water dancers and luftballoons? He’s not. He tells People that he will probably go do something very small at an exotic location. Reza?
I’m not sure I am buying into this whole thing. Something doesn’t pass the armpit sniff test. Thoughts?
P.S. Does Cartier really sell you a wedding band and put it in a plastic bag? I need to rewatch that whole scene. And who tosses a plastic shopping bag with a box in it to someone during a “proposal.” Oh and MJ’s reaction face is priceless. Where were the tears? Where was the emotion on either side?
Okay, Reza hands him the present in a wadded up black baggie, Someone mentions the price on the bottom, Cartier would never put the price tag on the box. They don’t even have price tags. The box itself looks real (although you can buy replica boxes on ebaby). I think Reza used a Cartier box from something he bought for him self and stuck a ring from Jarrod’s in there.
