Reza Farahan Shares Updates on His Marriage and How He Feels About Not Meeting Shams Today
The Shahs of Sunset cast member explains the status of having kids with Adam Neely and his future with friend MJ Javid.
During the Shahs of Sunset Season 9 reunion, Reza Farahan offered an update on his marriage to Adam Neely that included him tearfully sharing how he feels today about someday having kids.
"Never ever happening. I don't ever, ever, ever, want to have a kid," he said. "100 percent I never want to have a child. You can feel certain things that it just, I don't think it's a good idea."
He went on to explain that "sometimes you learn things about yourself, like they [my friends] point out things to me too that I do things to them that they don't like, right?" he said with tears in his eyes, before stepping off the stage to take a break. When he returned to the couches, Reza said, "I don't want to participate because I think that I have the potential to do lots of damage."
As for how Adam feels about that decision, Reza noted that "we have, like, tough conversations." Still, he noted, "Our relationship's in a really good place, and I just would hate myself if I ended up being that parent whose disappointments show through and I made my kid feel sometimes the way I was made to feel."
Reza also offered an explanation as to why fans saw less of Adam on Season 9 of Shahs of Sunset, which he explained in the clip, above.
In case you needed some proof that Reza and Adam are "in a really good place," the pair often posts photos of their sweet life together, including bonding with family, hanging out with the other Shahs, and chilling with cats and dogs.
Plus, there's this sweet tribute Adam posted about their marriage: "Happy anniversary to my one [Reza]. 5 years of marriage and many more to come."
Speaking of kids, the topic of Reza someday meeting Mercedes "MJ" Javid's son, Shams, also came up during the reunion. Earlier in the season, MJ's husband, Tommy Feight, made it clear that he doesn't want Reza to meet Shams after what happened in Season 8.
Part 2 of the Season 9 reunion highlighted that MJ and Reza are having some issues with each other again and are strained after working to put the drama of Season 8 behind them this past season.
As for MJ's take on if Reza should meet Shams, she explained, "When Reza and I are close, there would be meaning to having him meet and play a role in my son's life." She then said that Reza not seeing Shams has caused a "strain in my heart."
Reza said, "Internally we have taken a thousand steps back." He then noted that he just wanted to have "peace" and listed several things he would do in order to make that happen, including keeping his distance, as well as not seeing Shams.
In the end, Mike Shouhed tried to offer some advice on how Reza and MJ can try and get back to a better place. "Work on your guys' friendships between you," he said, sharing they shouldn't let any outside forces affect them.
Backstage, Reza and MJ shared a moment where they confessed that they "miss" each other and seemed to come to an understanding to work on things.
