I am not sure if I am emotionally ready for Shah’s of Sunset to return. Long time readers here know that when this blog first began, I did stories on Shah’s before anyone else even noticed there was a show. Because I was raised in Libya, I was quite fascinated with how Bravo and Ryan Seacrest would paint a show about exiled Iranians living in the US. Of course the first thing they did was ditch the word Iranian in favor of the antiquated and not synonymous at all, Persian. Because American’s would rather think of Disney characters than you know, terrorists seeking nuclear capabilities. Reza has stated many times that he is American and doesn’t keep up with Iranian politics.
So it is peculiar to me that on the very day that Hassan Rouhani, the newly elected Iranian President was a no show at a luncheon where many expected Obama to
bow extend the olive branch and shake his hand Reza tweets the above picture with the tweet,” Persian royal family! #shahs @mikeshouhed @MercedesJavid @AsaSoltan @LillyGhalichi @GolnesaGG .
Frankly, I don’t know what will piss me off more, if MJ and Reza make up, or if they don’t. I am not sure I have the stomach for another season. Can we just give A$A her own show and get rid of the rest of them?
