What the heck is going on with Reza Farahan? I realize that he has one of the worst cases of Seasontwoitis we have ever seen, but he seems to be totally spinning out of control. Reza was well received by all during season one and that positive attention seems to have gone to his head. There was some foreshadowing for Reza’s behavior in season two. Remember during the finale of season one, Reza was quite harsh with MJ and lacked compassion about her mother issues, despite him being estranged from his own father. Which brings us to this season, where it seems that Reza’s mission in life is to bring down MJ. This has resulted in his popularity crashing to the ground and it seems he is having a hard time dealing with it. Reza has now blocked me on twitter, I assume because of something on this site he did not like. I like Reza, but I can only report what we all or watching. There is just no way for me to put a positive spin on his behavior. I keep hoping for Reza and MJ to either make up or for Reza to stop being so obsessed with her. Sadly that does not appear to be happening. He has paused the war long enough to give stories to major blogs.
There have been two stories on Reza on the websites lately. One was on TMZ and it was about Reza selling a house to Ziggy Marley. Why would TMZ bring up a story that is years old? I posted about that real estate transaction back in February of 2012. I knew about it because Reza told me about it himself. It was one of his fun facts about himself that I used in a story about a month before Shahs premiered. I point this out now because it seems like Reza is on a push for publicity right now. I suspect that Reza himself contacted TMZ in an attempt to get some positive press.
The other story on Reza came out today. It seems that Reza once again contacted Naughty but Nice Rob over at HuffPo to give him a story. The story has one topic. This is not something that just came up in an interview. It appears, at least by the way Rob wrote the story that Reza contacted to share that Reza likes to take pictures of his penis. Yes, you read that correctly. He even gives HuffPo readers advice on taking nekkid pictures of yourself.
The meat of the story, um so to speak is this from Reza, “When I was going to be on the show, I had to fill out paperwork and one of the questions was basically, like, are there naked pictures of you out there, and my answer was ‘yes,’. I think it helped me get on the show. With a caveat that there are pictures of me, but there are never pictures of me with my head and my privates in the same picture. That’s my advice to everyone.”
Reza would also like you to know that he has a large package. He says, “I’ve sent pictures to people I was dating who were out of town. I wanted to surprise them, give them a little something to think about. Well, I’m not going to lie. It isn’t little, it’s always impressive.”
I gather they are having a slow news day over at HuffPo and that Reza could really use a publicist. Thoughts?
