Mercedes "MJ" Javid and Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi haven't always seen eye to eye on Shahs of Sunset over the years. But it looks like that's all about to change in the upcoming Season 9 premiering Sunday, May 16 at 8/7c — and they may have the new bundles of joy in their lives to thank for that.
The Shahs of Sunset ladies actually seem to be getting along, according to the above trailer for the new season. During one moment in particular, we see MJ and GG come together to have some fun during what appears to be their sons' first playdate.
MJ welcomed her first child, son Shams, with husband Tommy Feight in April 2019. GG gave birth to her first child, son Elijah, almost exactly one year later in April 2020. "I can't believe we're parents," MJ remarks in the trailer for Season 9 of Shahs of Sunset.
GG told The Daily Dish in February 2020 that no matter what was going on between her and MJ, she wouldn't deny her son the chance to have a friend in Shams. "I just want to see a change in her before I make that move of myself being around her," she explained.
MJ later shared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in April 2020 that she was ready to "mend fences" with GG, especially since they had both become moms. But during GG's appearance on the talk show later that month, she seemed a bit more hesitant to let her guard down around MJ.
We'll follow their journey on the road to friendship in Shahs of Sunset Season 9, with GG even noting in the trailer for the new season, "This is the first time I'm getting along with everybody."
A press release for the new season also describes how GG will be working toward keeping the group together, including her friendship with MJ: "After a long and difficult journey to motherhood, GG is thrilled to introduce her beautiful son Elijah to the world. She proves to be an unexpected unifier and voice of reason among her friends, helping them communicate their hurt feelings and hopefully let go of past grievances. The true test comes when she must apply this new perspective to her own friendship with MJ."
