I am so excited to finally see Shahs of Sunset back on the Bravo Schedule. You may recall that Shahs was supposed to return back in October. Unfortunately, the post-production editors at Ryan Seacrest Productions went out on strike trying to get benefits and like health insurance and sick days like their non-reality counterparts receive. I don’t know if they were finally successful or if Bravo just hired different editors but the show is now set to premiere March 2nd at 9 pm. I cannot wait. I have so much tea on this show and it’s going to be the best season ever.
First, here is the official Bravo Press release on the show:
This season finds much of the cast in love with success abounding, but when a scandalous accusation shakes the crew, their lifelong friendships may be changed forever. As the group navigates the most tumultuous year of their lives, it is on a trip to Thailand where they start to understand that their real wealth is each other.
Reza is newly engaged and planning a wedding with fiancé Adam, but with the impending nuptials he starts to wonder if he is ready for a lifelong commitment. Asa is helping to fund a home renovation for her parents, but as she struggles to deal with them temporarily moving in, she finds solace in a new art project that reaches oppressed women everywhere. Mike is getting over his fears of commitment and as his girlfriend, Jessica, completes her conversion to Judaism, he prepares to take the plunge and finally propose. Perpetually single, MJ, may have found Mr. Right with new boyfriend, Charlie, but as she braces him to meet her super protective group of friends and worse yet, her mom Vida, questions about her own ability to start a family arise. GG is taking a break from men after she split with her boyfriend two days before they were supposed to move in together. She starts spending more time with her friend of ten years, spitfire Asifa, but it is only a temporary distraction before she gets back into the man game.
New cast member, Asifa Mirza, is half Indian, half Persian, and 100% hot. She is charmingly gullible and a little clumsy, but when crossed she is a force that far outweighs her tiny frame. Currently studying for graduate school, Asifa lives a very pampered life thanks to her retired boyfriend/ex-husband/possible fiancé, Bobby. A highly passionate couple, Asifa and Bobby are constantly at odds, but she is trying one last time to extract a new marriage proposal from her former husband.
Okay, you know how on The Bachelor they guy always says “tune in for the most shocking rose ceremony ever” and it’s usually not that big of a deal? Well trust me when I tell you that this season is a SHOCKER. The “scandalous accusation” is made by GG who says that Mike Shouhed attempted to force himself on her. There is a preview where she takes a lie detector test to prove she is telling the truth. Mike denies it. There are also numerous accusations that Mike is cheating on Jessica. The entire cast seems to turn on Mike. It’s unclear is Mike and Jessica break up on camera, but suffice it to say they are on the rocks at the very least.
Speaking of problems with engaged couples, Reza and Adam are having issues as well. Reza has cold feet and wants a prenup with Adam who is not particularly keen on the idea.
MJ finally has a man, Charlie, who is ten years her junior. The age difference and the fact that he is not Iranian does not fly with Vida. The new girl is dating her ex-husband who is an ex for a reason. GG gets new liposculpture and a butt lift and since filming has ended she also got new, huge boobies! Asa does some performance art on the streets in a burka.
This all adds up to the most DRAMATIC SEASON EVER!
