Sooo, Michael Steger, the actor that plays nice guy Navid Shirazi, is actually of Ecuadorian, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. But, his character is one of the few representations of Persian youth on T.V. -- a must in a show about life in Beverly Hills.
We have it on good authority that Mrs. Jacques Torres is as sweet as her confections. Fun fact: the chocolate Louboutins featured in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 1 were purchased at her shop in L.A.!
