Reza Farahan may be having a ball in NYC with all the Bravo goings on, gee, I haven’t heard anyone mention Sheree Whitfield being there, but this coming Sunday’s episode takes a turn from the usual parties and drinking and GG getting into a fight, oh wait, I think GG goes after MJ for being late to her parents anniversary party so there is that. But Reza is in serious mode when he goes to New York to visit his father and they have one of those conversations that family members have and well, Reza does the ugly cry. Reza talked about the conversation with his father recently to an LA Times Blog (clearly this is cheating on his part, no?) it’s a great interview and you can read the whole thing here
Let’s talk about this reunion you have with your father in this Sunday’s episode and how it compares to the petty drama we’ve been seeing on the show.
You have to remember, audiences want to see a certain amount of my life and I am multi-faceted so to assume over a six-episode run, you’re going to get every aspect of what makes Reza Reza — you’re not. You’re getting little snippets. Shooting occurred over a certain number of months and whatever was happening in my life was catalogued and you guys get a fraction of what was catalogued. But it just so happened that when we were filming, I did make a trip to New York and the cameras happened to be with me and I had one of the most important, powerful, transformational conversations I’ve ever had with my father. If you seen the little teaser for it, you see me doing the ugly cry and I’m horrified. But it’s going to bring about conversations in people’s homes and it’s going to have an impact and a lot of people are going to be able to relate to it. It’s crazy that one of the most important conversations I’ve had with my father was filmed and I’m going to relive it as an onlooker. That blows my mind.
There are only two more episodes of Shahs left, so be sure to tune in Sunday night at 10 on Bravo!
