In a drama that played out on Shahs of Sunset in May, Reza Farahan famously called off his Thailand wedding to fiance Adam Neely. But not only is a reconciliation fully underway, The Daily Dish can exclusively report that a specific wedding date is also percolating!
In an interview, Reza first attempted to play coy, saying, “We do not have a wedding date. We are planning on getting married at some point in the near future.” But when pressed, he said, “Are you trying to give a b**** anxiety early in the morning?” (Never mind that it was after 11 a.m. in Los Angeles.) And then he spilled a bit of meaty info we could work with: a February nuptials may be in the works! “Adam was throwing around Valentine’s Day 2016,” Reza told The Daily Dish. “But that was just him saying it out loud — and I just smiled.”
Reza also said we shouldn’t expect anything huge or lavish, despite what he may have been planning for wedding 1.0. “Because I canceled a wedding, when I do get married, it’s going to be as low key as you can imagine,” he said. He described a ceremony with a justice of the peace, followed by a small celebratory dinner with super-close friends and family — something very likely held locally. “I think it’s a little tacky to cancel a wedding and then throw another huge shindig,” he said.
No matter how the specifics of the wedding play out, it appears the pair are in a great place as they head into a marriage. “I don’t think we’ve been in a place like this before — only because going through something so difficult, our lines of communication have to improve 10 fold. We’re closer than we’ve ever been,” he said.
Of course, this foundation feels critical for Reza, given he’s been vocal about how his own upbringing in a broken family makes him doubly committed to building a new family only when — and if — he’s in a position to make it work forevermore.
So what else does he credit for helping him get to that supremely happy place with Adam? Well, seeing a bit of couples dysfunction in his sphere: He describes seeing Asifa and Bobby fight like “two rabid alley dogs” and finding some perspective in that observation. “I’m thinking to myself, the things Adam and I have issues with are nothing compared to these two crazy people who literally tear each other apart and s*** on each other nonstop. So if they’re together, I need to figure this thing out!” he said. “I would recommend it to anyone who has relationship problems: Spend a day with Bobby and Asifa. You will go back to your spouse or partner with a huge smile and a lot of appreciation.”
