You can’t underestimate how important Reza is to Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset”. The show might be about a group of Persian friends living together in LA, but Reza is the straw that stirs the drink. Last week it was Reza who brought MJ and GG back together. Sure, he had to lie to MJ about a spa vacation, and he didn’t tell GG about his surprise guest at her family trip, but that’s why he’s so important to the show. If we were making a best of reality TV show then Reza would have to be part of that cast.
After last week’s white water rafting trip that found Reza taking the role of referee, tonight’s all new episode of “Shahs of Sunset”, titled “Fresh Off the Boat”, features Reza on the attack. Let’s take a look at the official Bravo synopsis of tonight’s episode.
MJ and Vida work on their relationship, and Vida discovers MJ can still surprise her. Asa reveals her plans with Diamond water to her parents. Reza’s boyfriend brings home a surprise Persian neighbor who triggers a violent emotional reaction in Reza. In an effort to get closer to Reza, Mike gets the gang to visit a Middle Eastern gay club, where Reza has another run in with the unwelcome neighbor. A heated exchange between them pushes Reza’s buttons and he shocks the entire bar — and himself — with his emotional meltdown. The group is split when Reza storms out with MJ, leaving Mike to pick up the pieces.
Sure there will be MJ’s constant journey to bond with her Mom, and Asa waxing poetic about Diamond water, but the real star of tonight is Reza’s anger towards other Middle Eastern gays. What triggers his meltdown you ask? Well according to one of the clips posted on Bravo, it seems Reza doesn’t want to be lumped in with the other Persian gays just because he to is Persian. Check it out below.
Get ready to be schooled on the finer points of Persian gay morality tonight on an all new “Shahs of Sunset”. Rule #1 is don’t call Reza fat. Be there for all the fighting when a new episode of Shahs kicks off tonight.
