Reza Farahan

Reza does some "shuttling" to show us how he felt about dinner with MJ, Asa, Mike, GG, Omid, and Lilly.

on Jan 25, 20130

Ok so you just watched Episode 9 right? What did you think?

It was okay; I mean, I’m not really sure how I felt.

Well, you went to anger management, didn’t you?

Yeah, but, I’m sick of being bullied!

But you need to tap into your emotional side!

Ok, really? All I can say is that I’m really glad I had a chance to speak to Golnesa, but now, watching it, she was NOT paying attention! I was thinking, I’m going to put a master plan together to get this tribe back on track. Step One: Meet with GG. Convince her and show her that attacking friends is wrong. Step Two: Sit down with Asa; massage her and give her a present and convince her to have a sit-down with Golnesa. Step Three: Talk to Mike and MJ. Work my fat ass out, and convince them that we all need to get together. And Step Four: Call Fat Sammy, and tell him to offer up his house, so we can actually have the meeting.
So we all show up to the meeting, and what happens? Golnesa comes in and snubs Asa right off the bat, and then World War III breaks out between Omid and Mike. Nothing gets accomplished, and we leave. Like, we’re in a much darker, uglier place than we were before that meeting.
WOW.

Thanks a lot, Reza, for all of your hard work.

No problem guys, it was my pleasure.

I loved you so much in the beginning, but now I can't stand you! I can't tell if you were always this fake or if it came about after the first season got to your head. Remember where your loyalties lie and make an effort to treat your supposed "best friend of 20 years" better. When someone has a problem putting them down, calling everything about them fake, and telling a national audience that she is a bank robber will never help her get better - if anything it will only make things worse. Grow up.

Dear Reza, I love Shahs of Sunset, I make sure to watch it every Sunday evening. I think you have a big heart and you are very intelligent. I've read some of these comments written here, but not most, the negativity here speaks volumes about the people that wrote them. To me, you are the star of the show, I love your laugh and your meetings are all with good intentions. I see the love you have for everyone on the show, even though sometimes there is friction among all of you, but I look to you as the peacemaker. keep doing you, although you all have one more sit down with Andy Cohen - I hope it doesn't take long for another season to begin, I will be looking forward to seeing you all again. much continued success to you,

Rena you say MJ'S LIKE A SISTER TO YOU! And yet you are constantly degrading her... You are demeaning to her and always putting her down. Please, with a friend or family like you who needs enemies. You are disgusting.

You guys were interesting in the beginning, but you are now falling into repetitious behavior that is not fun to watch.

Reza,

 

You often give really good advice...especially with GG. Happy for your resolution with your family. Oneday if you ever are a father you will be a good one you will keep your kids in line. Your friends are training you since they often act  like kids.

Your hard work? Honestly, Reza, you haven't been working hard in keeping good relationships with your "friends". You and Asa (aka: the self-pronounced king and queen) need to stop talking about people behind their backs. The way you've treated MJ this season was so hard to watch. Throughout the show MJ really tried to make things right between you guys but you didn't even listen to her. You constantly expect people to give give give and feed into your own problems, but you weren't even there for MJ when she was going through a tough time with her own family issues. I think you're forgetting what a relationship entails. It's a two way street.... so maybe make an effort to care about other people?

Reza you are nuts! You are such a bullshitter. God I need to put my boots on most of the time. Sometimes you do make me laugh but when you are justifying yourself you are full of it. You will never find "love" because you can't be honest with yourself. How can you be honest with anyone else? Your MO is to either walk away from turmoil or talk over everyone else so they can't get a word in. You are not all that so come down off your Persian Pyramid and get real.

Reza I started watching the show for the first time last night,  and I totally love you..you remind me of a friend a lost many years ago. I am full Sicilian and I laugh so hard when all of the cast members are together and partying.  It reminds me of my huge italian family...loud, mouthy hugging, drinking and good food!

Reza-you are awesome! Mike equally awesome! As for the women on the show, MJ popping pills and drinking with them not good! GG is beyong mental, add alcohol to her issue and she is a total mental mess, bi-polar, mutiple personality disorder, terrorist and most of all, "toothpick with a wig on"! GG needs a dictionary so that she can look up "respect". That's the word she over uses to justify her actions at every turn. She has no respect for anyone least of all herself. I am happy that the crew decided to ostracize her from all trips, dinners and gatherings. Smart move to avoid anymore BS! Asa is extreme with the diamond water. Lily extreme with her plastic surgery.Good Luck with the next season. Can't wait to see what happens with all of you. If they took GG off the show, it would be great. BTW being Native American we share some deep traditions with the Persians about those not of the same skin tone. Love Shahs.

Reza, I absolutely adore you, and your friendship with M.J. It reminds me of my BFF Dean and myself. We have made emergency stops for Prada loafers, and he tells me, the party at the club doesn't start until I get there. We own a successful salon together, so we're constantly together, and we can call each other out on our bullshit. I'm happy you and M.J have worked through your differences. What you two have is wonderful. May you have years of shenanigans ahead of you!

Reza, I am sorry for the pain that you are going through with your dad. Your friend, MJ, is a true friend. Stop telling the world that you had sex with her to boost your ego, even if it is true, it is not something that you need to share with the rest of the world on a national TV. Be a gentleman. You really need to apologize to her.

Rez, why are you are so dramatic! i dont know if i could deal... you are one of those friends that its REALLY fun for a while but after too much exposure its like i get a headache. you know the type, 30 minutes of being with them is like 5 hours. BUT IT'S ALL GOOD REZA. good luck with your fam situation though, that can't be easy.

"Who invited the terrorist to hijack my peace summit?"

 

That was a classic Reza one-liner.

 

Laughed my a-- off at that one!

What I don't understand last year you went to see your grandmother for the first time after so many years and she treated you so horrible and when she saw you for the second time, she was treating you with so much love. she acted like there was nothing wrong. it just does not make sense to me. "inquiring minds want to know"

Reza, it seems like your family is falling apart. Too many big egos. When Mike and Omid started to get into it it really looked like they were going to get to punching each other. Then when GG took the knives and said "she" was going to be the only one that would be stabbing someone, I was like whoaaaa. Wait a frigging minute. Not good. I certainly hope that all of you can get together (no alcohol or knives) and sit down like adults and hash out any problems you have and find a resolution. Good luck to all of you.

If you keep hanging out with Asa you will either need to sit through a lot of shuttling sessions or hope to god that diamond water works, to come back to normalcy.

Reza, Reza, Reza,,,,, What were you thinking to have a group dinner for all to sort out their mess?! Of course it's going to be disaster, had it just been you, Asa, MJ and GG it would have been totally different, less people, less problems, less distractions! and to top it off you bring up the matter of Omid ish talking about Mike? You know there might be chance of GG bringing Omid, why fuel the problem by bringing it to the surface? Group discussions never ever work!

This show gets more ridiculous every week. First "diamond water" then the "split personality" with GG and now the "deadly" force. PLEEESE I just can't watch this crap any more.

It's amazing how everyone is just glossing over how Mike, who was not provoked, immediately goes into fight mode and wants to start fighting Omid. But, you completely turn your backs on GG who is someone who obviously needs help from her family and friends.  I understand she put her hands on Asa and thats completely wrong, but not one of you have taken into consideration the turmoil this girl must be going through to have to resort to anger in every situation. Its nice that she is getting anger management therapy, but there are deeper issues with her. Instead of inviting her to dinner parties where there is alcohol, have one that is an alcohol free zone, so EVERYONE can be sober and clear thinking.  Honestly, I think Bravo needs to pull this show, too many people on the show have egos that are over inflated and you all need to get back to REALITY.

It was nice of Sammy to offer his home as a neutral territory for the enemies in combat,  but once I saw the liquor flowing, I knew it was going to be the battle of the drunkest ,even though the war, oops I mean the gathering had just started.. I don't think the peace summit got off on a good start from the get go. No one seems to be willing to surrender. Good luck.

 @AbbyFarrow wow are you naive, the Reza and Mike are the two fakest people on the show.  They both talk sh*t behind everyone's back and then pretend they are such good friends.  They are not good people and the only positive is that the majority of the people on this board see that.

 @kat666 Mj is lucky to have him as a friend??!! More like the other way around. She's no longer speaking with him after all he did to her on the show and I wouldn't call him a friend seeing what he did. Reza should consider himself lucky to have any friends at this point if this is how he ends up treating them.

 @Leechiv I think it was a set up to make GG look bad...push her buttons and pretend to be the peace maker. He excluded her all summer in events and tried to distance himself from MJ, but couldn't. He is a nasty piece of work.

 @Sophia74 Thank you! I said the same thing in his last blog. I think he didn't go near her with the cameras to alter our view of her to what he wanted us to perceive her as. Just my opinion.

 @april1956

If you look at the episode again and listen to what GG stated, you will find that her intention was not directed to any of the cast mates. When her boyfriend threatened Mike, she wanted to get to the knife before it would reach to that level. She even stated that her boyfriend was not going to fight, but Mike was the one that made that situation escalate to that level. GG's boyfriend was trying to explain to Mike, but Mike didn't want to hear anything. If you watch the episode again, you will see it was Mike that started from the beginning to the end. I must say I was very surprised in Mike’s character. I start wondering, if what was being said about him wasn't true --why take it to such a level. I also thought that like Reza and Asa they want to be seen on camera. I don't know what the real reason is, but Mike was in the wrong. He knew he was going to address Omid, because he was talking to Reza. He started with Omid with comments to the feather in Omid’s hair and it went from there. I also feel we can like a persona of a character on TV, politicians etc., but when they are wrong that person should be called out on the wrong doing and yes, you can still like the person.

Quiet as it's kept, it's because of the inevitable drama those invited would bring to the table -- just as it turned out!  But I do agree, the dinner would have been much nicer (and controlled) had it been a smaller group and not the masses.  In fact, why in the heck did GG have to bring Omid?  I'm telling you, 5 minutes and it was on!!  Good grief....

And Reza said it without laughing, like he meant it.  I fell over with laughter!  He does deliver some funny lines, though, every week.

I agree that he's the only one that's well liked over the rest; nothing scandalous about him.  He may come in on the late freight sometimes with his judgments in tow, but overall, I even like Sammy.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his voice!!

 @Jessie9070  @lisa2  @bossy_knowitall totally agree with Jessie and Lisa, Reza is no friend to MJ and his only interest is in himself not in anyone else.  MJ is great friend to him, but he is terrible to her and she should drop him.
