While MJ is doing her own thing, Asa and Reza go to a famous Persian psychic named Shohreh. According to Asa, if you google "Persian Psychic," Shohreh’s face will pop up. For the record, I googled her, and couldn’t find her. . .and now I’m officially hexed. Any way, Shohreh tells Reza that he’s really connected to his mom, but his dad isn’t really in the picture, and Reza is shocked by her knowledge.
He asks Asa if she’s mentioned anything to the psychic, and Asa assures Reza she did nothing of the sort. Think, Reza! How would she know? Could it be that EVERY Persian in the country watches this show!?! So it’s pretty safe to say that the whole Iranian community knows about your daddy issues. Some call it being a fan of the show, while Shohreh calls it psychic.
Anyway, when all is said and done, Reza tells Asa that he’s in the middle of a gay life crisis. He reveals that he’s dating somebody new (Adam), but still wants booty on the side. Who does he think he is? Big Pun? Later we see Reza on a date with Adam, and though it was cute, their dynamic wasn’t a shocker. Adam was quiet and Reza was a ham. Here we see life imitate art (Or is it art imitate life? I can never be sure with reality TV) and just like Shahs, this relationship is clearly destined to be The Reza Show (and I’m not complaining).
I don’t want to get into Reza and Adam too much because we still have the ENTIRE fight to cover. . .so let’s get to it!
