Wow - they're all pretty disgusting.
This is not doing the "Persian" community any favors.
And that gay guy needs to kill that moustache.
Anybody else watching?
Laughing all the way to the bank!
None of the guys looked very hot in the pictures I saw. They all looked middle aged and fat.
Seacrest is bringing us this shit?
Glad I didn't watch.
At least Ravi (sp?) the openly gay one isn't the most excruciating of the bunch.
The women are quite ghetto in their looks and behavior. They remind me of the chicks on Russian Dolls (remember that)?
I'd heard that there was a community of fabulously wealthy Persians in Beverly Hills, but I was expecting more Beverly Hills and less Brighton Beach.
Are most Persians not terribly attractive?
I don't think most Persians would be caught dead doing a show like this - just like Italians and Jersey Shore.
Only trash sign up for this crap
Umless this is a series about cats, they're Iranian.
Yes, thank you, they are IRANIANS! Persia ceased to exist years ago...
Are these Persians by way of New Jersey?
There are very few persians in Iran. Most were ran out centuries ago. Where ever you find Zoroastrian comminities, India, China etc. these are the remains of the persian people. The moslems who live in Iran are a completely different people.
Reza has been fucking Dallas Raines (LA weather man) off and on since he was 16.
This show is funny at the expense of all "Persians."
Persians are assholes. Period.
My college roommate was Jewish Iranian guy. He was average looking, but some of his friends were gorgeous. I graduated from college 15 years ago, but I still fantasize about one in particular. The show is trashy, but I can't imagine any one of you throwing the muscled Iranian Michael out of bed. Despite what you think about the show, he is exceptionally good looking.
every Iranian I have met refers to themselves as Persian
these shows always find the most disgusting of every ethnic group, race, or sex
I'm sick of gross people - and this show, like the others, only creates more gross people because it normalizes their behavior
The ones in SoCal are Persian Jews in the main, yes?
How did this happen?
I felt like I was watching TV on Bizarro World. They kept talking about how hot they are, and I kept thinking, "In what way? Is this a trick question?"
And r15, I don't think I'd call him "exceptionally good looking". He has a good body, and a decent face, but "exceptional"?
The muscle guy has no fucking neck! Bizarre looking guy - a head on a set of shoulders.
The Jewish Iranians escaped to LA after the Shah was deposed and the Muslims fundies took over.
This series makes them look very bad...
Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. I love Middle Eastern guys. I find them very masculine and sexy as hell. Michael is kind of my wet dream come to life.
[quote]Only trash sign up for this crap..

Change the channel, ignore it and send a message.
Are you serious, R12? If so, lol. I had the biggest adolescent crush on Dallas Raines when he was in Baton Rouge for a minute back in the mid 1970s. Damn, he was hot! Too hot for BR to hold him.
I haven't thought about him in years. But I still remember the way he pronounced "temperature." Just got my blood flowing.
R11...what ARE you talking about, Mary? Persians ARE Iranians. The name of the country changed; there are no 'people' who are ethnically "Persian." Read a book!
R16= Shapur I the Great!
These people are unusually ugly.
[quote] Where ever you find Zoroastrian comminities, India, China etc. these are the remains of the persian people.
The late Freddie Mercury would be a good example of what you are speaking of.
I caught the last 20 minutes and almost vomited.
It's not even trashy fun like Housewives NJ or BH. It's just tragic.
I don't envy their cheaply re-done condos/apartments. They're butt ugly and aren't relevant in any social scene except their own (aka the PERSIAN one).
And the Shah was NOT a good role model for Iranians. The coward didn't even want the position, it was his sister's doing.
The whole show reeks of desperation. I think Seacrest is amazed he made a fortune off of the gypsy Kardashian clan so he thought he'd strike twice.
I predict a quick demise for this unoriginal, unfunny train wreck.
P.S., even the pool party (even after Bravo foots the bill) was LAME.
It was one of the most vile, repulsive displays of humanity that I have ever seen.
The Iranian-Americans of Tehrangeles frequently refer to themselves as Persian as a way of separating themselves from the Iranians of Iran. Hence the names "Little Persia", "Persian Hills", "Persian Square" to refer to their community around the Beverly Hills/Westwood area. They are usually wealthy, proud, and highly educated, and many that I've encountered are extremely attractive. The ones I went to school with tended to be Jewish.
The "Persians" of the "Shahs of Sunset" must be some kind of minstrel joke, as no self-respecting Persian would ever behave that way in a public forum.
The men are all ugly. Really, really unattractive. Good they're rich.
PS: Dallas Raines, R12? He's straight.
Maybe you meant Garth Kemp. He's gay.
Yeah, Garth Kemp makes more sense. Dallas Raines was HOT when he first came on the scene, but now he resembles a wizened old lesbian.
R32, the young Persian guys around the UCLA campus and medical building are usually extremely and exceedingly handsome. Believe me, I've been dazzled too many times to count by all that beauty coming out of that campus. I think it's when they reach middle age that their looks head south in a bad way.
It makes me long for Miami Social & Most Eligible Dallas.
Not every Iranian is Persian. Most are, but Persian is what they call in Iran a "race." Others are Jewish, Arab, and Assyrian (and one or two other I have forgotten.)
Calling yourself Persian is like calling yourself "white" or "black" or "Californian" or "WASP."
Some of the confusion is because in the Middle East most people identify with their ethnicity or culture more than the nation they were born in. So for us, being American is more important than being of Eastern European descent (for example). There, being of Ukranian extraction would matter more than being American.
[quote]It was one of the most vile, repulsive displays of humanity that I have ever seen.
I disagree. About the humanity part.
R23, I wrote that comment and I can assure you, I don't watch ANY reality shows (including this one), but one can guess that they're not getting the pillars of the community to be on these types of shows.
What does he have to do with this? I can't imagine Andy Cohen working with this guy.
You know Mike has a GIGANTIC penis! Yum!
Dallas Raines -- heart problems and the resulting surgery drained the hotness from him, poor fellow.
Have any Persian groups protested about he way the show is depicting them like Italians did about the Sopranos and Jersey Shore?
Who are you, who does that?
It's actually a flattering portrait if you look at the stereotypes of Middle Eastern people that we normally see on TV. It actually helps their cause. It allows the average Joe and Jane to see that Middle Easterners are just as greedy, materialistic, self-absorbed and fame-hungry and everyone else in the US.
[quote]You know Mike has a GIGANTIC penis! Yum!
He looks like he probably shoots huge loads. He just has that look.
sorry to disappoint, but with my experience (have had 2 Persians, and YES they refer to themselves as Persians) while some can be GORGEOUS, alas, the dicks are thin.
Well, believe it, R40. Seacrest is one of the executive producers.
Aren't there plastic surgeons who specialize in shaving Persian noses? Isn't the doctor married to one of the Beverly Hills housewives one of them?
R45...you think this show is a positive thing for people from the Middle East? You're kidding, I hope.
The country hasn't been called Persia since 1935. They're Iranians. Like it or not. Try as you might to disassociate yourself from the fanatical ayatollahs of the 1970s. You're Iranians with ancestral origins in Iran, not Persia.
[quote]I'd heard that there was a community of fabulously wealthy Persians in Beverly Hills
Ha! Are you kidding? Beverly Hills IS a community of wealthy "Persians", and Westwood, too.
Saturday Night Live already did this show and called it "The Bel-Arabs".
"I was shooting at some Jews/and up from the ground come a bubbling crude".
Massive fail, r54. Not even remotely funny.
These are now second generations of Persians and they've become the new Koreans, everyone's favorite group to hate.
I live on the Westside and lots of parents don't send their kids to their excellent public elementary schools because they don't want them alongside the Persians. Westwood Charter and Warner have seen the so called white flight, although the Asians in the area have also followed suit.
Some of the affluent towns that dot the Jersey shore have a huge population of Persian Jews. Extremely materialistic.
What next? The Bukharians of Queens?
You are either Persian or Jewish. You cannot really be a Persian Jew anymore than you can be an Arab Jew or an Arab Persian.
Speaking of which, I'm surprised that this community seems religiously mixed. What keeps them together, homesickness and language?
Has Andy tapped Michael yet? Michael is superhot and Jewish...just what Mizz Cohen sees as perfect bf material. He's practically a Mark Consuelos clone, and you know Andy has it bad for him.
>>>Yes, thank you, they are IRANIANS! Persia ceased to exist years ago...
Wrong! The Queen of England runs Persia
r62 Andy says his type is a Jewish JFK, Jr.
Why do they call themselves Persians if they are Jewish? Bukharian Jews are from the old Russian Empire and the old Persian Empire, but they don't mess around calling themselves "Russians, or "Persians." They call themselves "Bukharian Jews."
R60, Though you may be semantically and historically correct, the reality is, there are many people in the U.S. who identify themselves as "Persian Jew" or "Jewish Persian".
You just know Michael is nice and musky... down there.
r67, down there where he was spraying cheap cologne?
That was just for TV, R68.
[quote][R67], down there where he was spraying cheap cologne?
The wealthy Persians in West L.A. can be an extremely rude, cheap and entitled bunch. If you work in any sort of service industry in this area, you know what I mean.
r60 why not?
I'm fucking a hot, Persian rugby player.
Many move here to go to school, take out huge loans with no intention of paying them back, do back room deals to get good grades, and are amazed when they're called on their entitled shit.
I don't live in LA, but I have friends who do and when I go to visit I hear people bitching about "those fucking Persians" in a lot of social situations I'm in. They're really not popular at all with other people.
I only could tolerate two of the girls...MJ and Asa.....they were the least obnoxious
R66...they can identify themselves as "Persian" all they like. It's bullshit. I understand not wanting to say you are Iranian because of the prejudice here, but it's ridiculous to say "Persian."
Why did all the Persian/Iranian Jews move to Bel Air? I thought most Jewish people gravitated towards New York in the US.
I threw ranch dressing at the screen.
I will be your waitress for this evening...
Do not watch this show.
Do not watch this show.
Do not watch this show.
These people take tacky to an entirely new level.
The best scene was when the women were at the bridal shop and the entitled fat bitch was all "why get married when you are only going to end up divorced?" What the fuck, way to make it all about you you you. That girl is tragic.
The fat guy makes my skin crawl. He looks like some leisure suit wearing used car salesman from the 70's. Who is he kidding with his whole straight routine? He's as flaming as the dude with the porno-stache. Speaking of porno-stache, he is the only likable guy and seems like he would be a riot to hang out with. His bow tie was cute.
And Mike is definitely on roids. He has roid eyes. Probably a pimply back, and nice taut buttocks also. I fully expect to see some roid rage as the season progresses.
I had a wet dream about Michael last night. God I want that gorgeous Iranian Jewish musclegod in me BADLY.
R83= Kim Kardashian.
Why ae they "shahs" of Sunset if they are Jewish? Shahs are Muslim.
[quote]You are either Persian or Jewish. You cannot really be a Persian Jew anymore than you can be an Arab Jew or an Arab Persian.
Of course you can, just as you can be a Russian Jew, or a German Jew, or a Yiddish-speaking Ashkenazi Jew. Persia was multicultural, multiethnic and multi...um, confessional(?), whatever the English word is for a lot of religions living together.
Shahs reigned over a diverse empire, not just over Muslims. People are confusing their notions of pre- and post-revolutionary Iran.
Just because the country changed its name to Iran, that doesn't mean the people stopped being called Persian. "Persian" refers to people who speak the language called Farsi (or Dari, as the same language is called in Afghanistan). There are also Azeri and Turkic and Assyrian and Kurdish Iranians.
An analogy could be drawn to Russian immigrants from the Soviet Union. Living in the US, they'd consider themselves Russians but not Soviets. Same deal with Persians vs Iranians.
The only analogy I care about is Michael cock with that of a beer can.
[quote] Shahs reigned over a diverse empire, not just over Muslims.
But shahs were and are Muslim. Not Jewish, not Christian, not Hindu, not Zoroastrian.
And British monarchs are C o fE. I'm not sure what your point is.
Old-timers in LA will tell you it was once a fairly friendly city - until around 1980, when the Persians moved here en masse.
They are indeed arrogant, entitled and rude, generally speaking. They've completely changed the character of Beverly Hills, Bel Air and other upscale neighborhood, and not for the better.
R86 You are using the terms the way we do in the west. Iranian and Persian are two completely different things. But in Iran saying Persian Jew would be as nonsensical as calling yourself a "Japanese Arab" or a "black caucasian" or a "Jewish Christian' or a "feline dog."
In Iran,you could say Iranian Jew, but Persian refers to an ethnic group that is different from nationality. One can be a Persian from Israel or India or anywhere, just like you can be a Jew from Israel, India or Russia. But unless you have a mother from the Jewish race and a father from the Persian race, it would be hard to be both Persian and Jewish.
Not all Iranians are Persian and not all Persians are Iranian.
Shah is just the Persian word for king. The characters on the show are religiously diverse Persian speakers who now "rule" Sunset Blvd(synecdoche for Los Angeles).
[quote]Not all Iranians are Persian and not all Persians are Iranian.
I know all that. That's why I added that "There are also Azeri and Turkic and Assyrian and Kurdish Iranians," in contradistinction to Persian Iranians.
Farsi speakers are Persians, whether they're Muslim, Jewish or Christian.
I know a number of Farsi speakers who would emphatically state that they are NOT Persian.
They are Iranian and Farsi is their first language. But they are not Persian.
(Unless you want to call me British because I speak English?)
By the way, the Farsi speakers who would not want to be called Persian are Assyrians and Turks. They grew up in Farsi-speaking households in Iran.
Its ethnic, not linguistic.
[quote] And British monarchs are C o fE. I'm not sure what your point is.
Shahs are Muslim and Jewish people are not Muslim. So you're not a 'shah' if you're Jewish, any more than you are a 'czar' if you are Catholic. Because 'czar' is the Russian word for king, and all Russian czars are Orthodox Russian.
Nor are you a "caesar" if you are Muslim. Areas of the old Roman empire are now Muslim, but you wouldn't call a Syrian neighborhood in the US "The Caesars of of Chicago."
There are Poles living in Germany, but if they emigrated to America, they wouldn't be "The Kaisers of Jersey City."
You are being a little too cute.
Every time I see that Reza I feel like doing the Humpty Dance
[quote] An analogy could be drawn to Russian immigrants from the Soviet Union. Living in the US, they'd consider themselves Russians but not Soviets
Soviet has never been a nationality or a religion. It simply meant "council" in Russian. Russians in the Soviet Unions never considered themselves "Soviets." Americans mistakenly and ignorantly used this term to refer to Russians. It's a political term. It would be like using the word "Socialist" as a nationality for Swedes.
Really bad analogy.
R91, They've also changed the landscape of those neighborhoods. They buy property, raze the existing structure, and build oversized and ostentatious mansions w/o any regard for the existing aesthetics of the neighborhood. The result is this jarring juxtaposition of modest ranch and Mellenthin style homes dwarfed by neighboring "Persian Palaces" done in pseudo-Mediterranean style and built within an inch of the property line.
And now the wealthy Armenian and Indian immigrants are doing it in the San Fernando Valley! Just stop!
Check out this site, to see what I mean:
What's going on in r101's house? I can see 4 windows in the picture, and they look like they came from 4 different houses.
There are a lot of persians( Iranians) who live in Iran or outside who are openminded and do not think or behave like these shallow people in this series. They do care about their looks but they look much better than Reza. Even Reza looks so much better without his hair the way it is styled for this show. Just look at his high school picture.
They call themselves persians because they would like to remember the days they were a big empire and those days before Islam took over and forced them to change their religion.
There are a lot of people fighting to be free in Iran daily. Do you remember the green movement of Iran 2 years ago?
Shahs of Sunset is not reality and if it is it only reflects a low percentage of shallow minded persians.
R103, Gee, no kidding? Of course most people from Iran don't act like this...it's a Bravo show. They do nothing but promote negative stereotypes.
Oh my god the girl who says she hates ants and ugly people has the most serious case of Old Lady Mouth (OLM Syndrome) I have ever seen. She is FUGLY!
Why is Julianna Margulies on the show? ...I had no idea she's Persian.
Are they hung? Cut or uncut? Do they wipe their asses with their hands? Sorry, I get my stereotypes confused sometimes.
First off these people are not Persians...the country is now Iran = Muslims. They are obnoxious, rude, crude, ill educated and bear no American traits. AND FOR THE LOVE OF HEAVEN...DO NOT COMPATE THEM TO ITALIANS OR THE SHOW - JERSEY SHORE. Who ever blogged that piece of crap should be kicked in the ass.
We do not need any more obnoxious, stupid, brainless shows on TV...shame on Bravo!!!!!!!!]
Get rid of this trash.
What a crappy show!
haha great show!!! Every group of people has their Jersey Shore, RHWOA, RHWOBH, MTV Real World, BBW, etc etc. They do not represent their people - they are just being themselves..and gettin PAID! I wouldn't do it but it's fun to watch.
Arrogant, entitled douchebags who are horrible to deal with in any type of setting. Everybody in LA can't stand Persians. And it's true they've changed entire neighborhoods for the worse. They have such superiority complexes they are unbearable.
Reza is a hoot!
Last nights show was the funniest ever, from the colonic to the blind date, I was laughing out loud.
Doesn't Seacrest produce this shit?
Beating Bethenny in the ratings already.
the blind date episode was so excellent the twink showed up wearing a bow tie....pre-tied no less
and that MJ girl christ almighty - she keeps talking about being single like its her choice and because of her parents divorce...umm, no its because you're fat, fugly and can't stop eating
these idiots must have to be told to constantly say how hot they are, yes?
I mean, does Ravi or whatever his name is really think he's an attractive, appealing man? the ridiculous haircut, the designer label worship - he comes across as a silly, nelly queen
and Mike is built, but I get small dick vibe from him - overcompensating for some deficit
Call me crazy, but I find Reza hilarious. He is a little bit fem, but I think he seems like a really nice guy, somewhat down-to-earth, and likeable. He seems to have a big heart.
I also find Asa interesting, with her "citizen of the world" schtick. I have a feeling that the only reason she did the show was for her music career. She doesn't seem the type to be caught dead on this trainwreck of a show.
Even Mike is likeable. He could be a total douchebag because he's handsome and has a nice body, but he's very cute, and even he can't stand GG. Plus, he's nice to his gay friend Reza. LOVE Mike.
GG is funny. You can tell she's not acting. She's really a crazy bitch with some major anger problems. I had to laugh when she was going through the weapons she named, like her knives "Madagascar" and "Africa," and her taser named "crispy." WTF??? Who does that?
I even appreciate that they have a fat playboy named Sammy on the show. Normally, these reality shows only have the beautiful people, but Sammy is so anti-typical reality material, and yet there he is... balding, overweight, and ready to party!
MJ is the hottest mess of all. That girl has some major alcohol problems, nevermind that she always looks sleepy. She seems like a good friend to Reza, though, so that's nice.
I have to say I'm loving this show, but that's because it's only Season 1. Usually by the second season, they're all playing for the camera, and it totally ruins the dynamic of the show.
When was this show filmed? The house that, that Mohamed guy is building looks an awful lot like the house that Lisa Vanderpump from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had her daughter's engagement party.
I like Reza - he's funny, but he sounds like Snagglepuss.
GG is a spoiled lying bitch. I hate the defense that she has to "protect" herself. Bitch, if you didn't start shit there wouldn't be any.
MJ likes to come off as a sad figure, but she's also just a spoiled girl.
I like Asa, as weird as she can be. I actually think there's some talent there if she would tone it down a notch or two. And where does this "artist" get a house like that and a Mercedes?
MJ lives in my hood and she and Reza work at the same office as a friend of mine. They sometimes have cool parties there which I've attended a few times.
I actually like Shahs better than RHOA, RHOBH, VH1 BBW and all the other shows. Even though the Shahs like to stir it up, they actually do have alot of love for each other and appreciate their cultural uniqueness. Even at their worst, noone on there is as evil and hateful as the women on the other shows.
I like this show. Better than Jeff Lewis or Tabitha or Andy Cohen.
I love Reza, but he could score so much more twink ass if he didn't style himself like a 50-something lounge lizard.
His grandmother is one poisonous old crone, BTW.
GG has negative breasts. Nothing. Not even mosquito bites. Is it against "Persian" law to get a boob job? She's on a reality show set in LA for crissakes.
Okay, so I just started watching this train wreck.
Where the hell do these people get their money?
I saw where two of them are real estate agents, but where does their money come from?
That skinny, angry bitch lives off of her parents money?
I thought it was a pretty powerful episode. The entire situation between Reza and his father is really interesting. I didn't realize it would go that deep.
It was hilarious how Reza's grandmother was portrayed, as a miserable old coot with a scowl on her face, and food stuck on the corner of her mouth. They kept showing bizarre, yet amusing glimpses of her eating and scowling. It was hilarious.
And Reza's father? What a spineless jellyfish. He chose to marry a Muslim woman, and then backed down after getting pressure from his mother. So he abandoned his wife and his son. That really sucks.
I love hearing the cast members switch between English, and whatever language they're speaking. And if MJ is a Muslim, howcome she can speak the same language as Reza's Jewish side of the family? It was all very fascinating to watch.
You can almost smell their stench through the TV!
R130 = Reza's grandmother.
[quote]And if MJ is a Muslim, howcome she can speak the same language as Reza's Jewish side of the family? It was all very fascinating to watch.
Because they're both Iranian.
The big guy is gay, yes?
I know this is weird, but I find MJ strangely attractive.
r134 MJ is gorgeous in person. No kidding. Saw her partying tonight. She wanted to hold the door for me, but I insisted she go first. She's got perfect skin and luscious lips.
I guess the new season is filming now. One of them lives near me and the whole cast was outside today. Huge limo in parked on the street for them. The mustachioed one is shorter than I thought. MJ is gorgeous! So is the trippy Venice gal.
they need a couple new castmembers...the fat guy and the girl who sings and wears jewelry are boring.
I just saw Reza two days ago. He still had the mustache and his weight looked the same.
By the looks of the video he's lost a good 50 pounds, and he's quite the verbal top.
nothing better than a hairy hunk
Wasn't there a pic posted of Reza on his camel?
Saw Reza last week in WeHo . Looked heavier, and still has the stache. All by himself .
What is up with that new commercial. It is without a doubt the most bizarre thing I've evern seen this side of a Calvin Klein commercial.
....had no idea the new guy has done porn.
There is no new guy, at least not according to the Bravo website.
R16, R18, Some Iranians feel that their country has a bad rep in America. If they left before the Shaw was deposed, they call themselves "Persians," to identify as Western in their outlook.
Does anyone remember the tour buses to that originally all white mansion off of Sunset, where the Sheiks' wife painted the Grecian Statues to look like "an adult Disneyland?" Then don't talk about horrible looking Persian/Iranian homes.
What part of Sunset do they all live at? East or West of 405?
bad taste universal among this culture- and the idea that wearing Gucci or driving a Mercedes represents status
they remind me of Russians in London
I'm glad they got rid of Sammy. He is a short, ugly, fat Jew and I find him repulsive. He's bald too and had the looks like George Kostanza from Seinfeld. It's no wonder he's single. He'll never get a girl cause hes shallow, ugly on the inside and outside. The only woman he'll ever get is a gold digger that he'll have to pay that'll use his ugly ass. He's probably got a little dick too the way how he acts totally insecure.
MJ has some big as titties though. I would like to stick my dick I'm between those beautiful boobs. Then pull out and stick my fat cock in GG's ass just because she is a spoiled cunt, pull out and blow my load on her face and then spit on her and leave her like the slut she is. Lol
Ryan, is that you @ r154?
r151 East of 405. West of La Brea. At least one of the cast members does who happens to be my neighbor.
R47 Have you ever been to sports club LA near Westwood? I've seen many a huge cock on these persians and they are not embarrassed to walk around swinging it. They tend to openly spit in the steam room...GROSSS! But they can be hot.
We hate straight men here, R154. We never want to think about fugly MJ naked ever again.
That's probably because you don't feel accepted in the straight community. I don't hate someone just because they are straight. That's a really dumb thing to say.
Get back to us when a straight man gay-bashes you, R159.
Who here has traveled the Pershey Highway?
I have but I don't let it determine my outlook on all straight people. I have straight friends as well. I was also in a situation one time where I was erring bashed by a straight guy and another straight guy who I didn't even know stood up for me and put this guy in his place up to the point where when it escalated he knocked out the guy who was talking crap out me with one punch. My point is not all of a specific group or ethnicity are bad. I try to forgive and forget and be the better person.
Reza looked, if possible, even fatter and less appealing in the season premiere.
She is a nasty piece of work.
They all look like fucking freaks, especially that homo with the Freddie Mercury moustache.
So is GG supposed to be dating that queen Omid?
GG is engaged to that queen Omid.
They probably deserve each other.
[quote] If they left before the Shaw was deposed
Honestly think Reza is the most annoying whiny little biatch on TV. He makes my skin crawl. He keeps calling white boys, white hos. WTF is up with that? Isn't he white? If he's not Arab, then he is white.
I love how Reza is with the white guy for his big ass, I need to date him after Reza is through.
I do a really good vocal impression of Reza. I'm a white guy from the midwest. I wish you could hear it. It cracks my friend up. It's the only impression I can do. I watch the show to get more material for my "act."
In the past, I've watched several episodes. I think the one gay guy is sweet. The girl who seems to be rather thin and bitchie...really nothing more than a spoiled brat, who will never turn into a human being.
The best thing that could happen to GG is for someone to call her bluff and straight up cold cock her right in the face.
totally sucked into this show & I love Reza!
Reza is fat. I'm surprised he doesn't collapse into a black hole.
Bravo has found another hit!
Cue Shahs of New York, Shahs of Orange County, and Shahs of Atlanta.
Reza is a normal weight for a man his age and that guy...his friend who said Reza was fat, the friend is fat...he has no room to talk. Reza is adorable compared to that jerk.
Alright, I must have their names mixed up.
I had to laugh at Mike calling Reza fat as his own gut was sticking out in that tight shirt.
How anyone with a functioning brain can watch this dreck is amazing!!
Reza is a famewhore. An ugly bitch inside and out.
I tuned out when that greasy whale proclaimed, "my nana (or granny) offered me $500 grand to go straight and get married".
She is a pretentious hag.
Why can't we ever have a truly positive portrayal on shows like this?
RE : 41 - Love Mike. Iranian & Jewish = huge peen. Have the feeling he's tiny short though. Actually, that would mean it would look gigantic hanging between those chunky little legs
r179, this crap is produced by Seacrest. There is your answer.
R176 = Reza
I still think Reza sounds like Kermit the Frog.
If it's produced by Seacrest, I'm not watching again.
Of course it is, r184. Famewhore Reza even spoke up about how straight his boss is.
By the way, what is it with those extreme closeups in the talking heads? This is not the cast you want to see that close.
Agree with R172. I wished all last season for someone to beat her ass. Also, her sister should have never gone into business with her. GG is spoiled, lazy, retarded and just a general pain in the ass.
Mike looks rough but seems nice
Reza is not nearly as precious as he thinks he is and is not attractive at all.
Asa is a trip and seems harmless. Hate her music, though
MJ needs to disown her bitch of mother, lose about 40 pounds and find herself a man
Lilly should NEVER fix her hair up. Makes her look like a baby chimp
I'm sorry everyone comments on Reza's body, but am I the only one who is astounded by the width of his face? His face is sooo wide, it's odd.
When Lilly said that she had a bottom for Reza, and he kept screaming "OMG,OMG,OMG" like a little girl, I was ROTHLOL at the thought of him being a top.
I caught just a few minutes of the last episode: Reza was talking (in extreme closeup) about wanting to date some guy but also to have whatever he wanted on the side, guilelessly and cluelessly asking "Is that wrong?", which gave me the biggest laugh of the weekend.
If these creatures didn't have this shit show they'd all be sneaking around stealing babies and breaking into cars.
r186 thank you Christmas just came early.
How many heads' worth of extensions is Lilly wearing at one time?
The preview for tonight's episode shows Reza talking about how he's into armpits. YUCK!!
GG needs to be hospitalized. She's obviously mentally ill.
I actually like MJ and felt sorry for the way Reza treated her last week.
r193 I agree about GG needing to be hospitalized. She has some serious issues. She's always talking about her knives and wanting to use them on people she's pissed off at. I think she needs to quit drinking. Everytime she drinks she becomes very irrational and angry. Alcohol is not good for her.
"She called me a fat South Beach crackhead, Saddam Hussein, and a piece of turd that comes out when a Jew and a Muslim have a baby. "
Reza is grotesque and, as Camille would say, "morally bankrupt". I was watching with friends - a mix of straight and gay - and we all made faces when he talked about taking a shower and having sex - multiple times! - with that equally bovine MJ.
I haven't seen old episodes of this show - does Reza actually think he's hot? Those closeup shots of him are horrendous.
The supposed "hot" one on the show looks like a busted Mark Consuelos.
how Reza and that FAT SOW Mike think they're hot is beyond me. I don't even watch the show, but the "teasers" and "trailers" are enough to make me puke.
These are REPULSIVE disgusting people.
And Reza is a disgrace to the gay cause. A disgrace.
How anyone could stand Reza for more than a couple minutes is beyond me. Where do they find these people?
Asa's boyfriend is Jermaine Jackson Jr....ewwwwww, no accounting for taste.
I want to sit on Omids face
Anyone catch Reza's rapturous ode to "creamy white hos with gingey snatches and stinky armpits"? It was funny.
The first season I thought that Reza was joking about being hot. Now this season it seems a little attention has gone to his head and pudge-o actually thinks he is attractive. No way would anyone pay attention to him in LA if there wasn't a camera following him around.
MJ has a totally valid point about Reza or whatever his name is. If Asa really is his good friend, and he protects his good friends, why the fuck did he take off while GG was attacking Asa at the pool party?
Beacuse he's a bitch who really doesn't give a shit.
Their community should be ashamed of these people -- but you know, being Iranians, they won't be.
What kind of mental illness does GG suffer from?
Bitch-itis, R207. That, and she's been wanting to lay Mike for her entire adult life, and he's totally not interested.
What first season ? I thought this was a new show ?
It's the second season.
Omid is Ryan Seacrest's boyfriend. Not kidding.
Mike Shouhed is hot!
I wish he would come out as bi.
Im pretty sure Shah's of Sunset is a big joke on all of us.
Omid has Humpty's nose while Raza has the voice.
What gym does Omid work out at?
Uh . . . Andy will work with anyone*
I want Omid to fuck me so hard that I buy him a Porsche.
Wow, talk about overboard fake this season. This show will fizzle quickly.
I liked Reza season one but this season, he's so full of himself, has gotten fatter and that stupid haircut is a joke.
Who talked him into that haircut? I hate it. At first I thought he was wearing a hairpiece. I like him OK.
Reza is gross in both appearance and attitude.
Someone needs to tell Lily that if her fug bf hasn't popped the question in ten years, he isn't going to. He's probably happy to be in Houston and free from listening to that irritating voice 24/7.
What time in the day does Lily start melting?
Coming soon to BravoTV...
"Minstrels In Miami"
Starring: Reza & Brad Goreski
Miss Andy Cohen
[quote]Asa's boyfriend is Jermaine Jackson Jr....ewwwwww, no accounting for taste.
Well, according to her, "he is a member of the number one family in show business".
r31 that is my experience also here in LA but the ones I have been around never gave any indication of what religion (if any) they practiced.
Lilly's BF hasn't proposed because he's worried about the costs of keeping her in hair extensions for the rest of his life.
I think Lily may be the most synthetic thing on TV at this moment. Jesus.
MJ is 40! Holy Christ, what a loser!
Mike the "stud" is fit fat.
I want to see Mike's HUGE FAT PENIS! I'm so jealous the girls saw it.
I want to see Reza's HUGE FAT GUT! I'm so jealous the girls saw it.
I would like to sniff Omid's no-no...
Omid, jesus he looks like he smells. I like a big nose too but that thing..that thing is something else.
I'd like a tenth of Reza's confidence. He's HIDEOUS, yet he's convinced himself that he's some sort of god.
Reza looks like Wario, and Mike has serial killer eyes. These are the most attractive Iranis they could find?
I'm ashamed to admit that I would eat Omid's ripe ass, though...
So now MJ is angry at Resa because he was accusing her of being a pill head? I say, fuck him and Asa.
Seems the only way anyone would marry Lilly...is if they were ready to shoot themselves...damn that girl is a bore!
So Asa is starting to get on my nerves. She does dress like an 80's hooker and that diamond bullshit is irritating.
Where the fuck does she get the money? House in Venice, Mercedes, and no fucking job whatsoever. It can't be Jackson money.
Mike announced he's going to be posing for Playgirl!!
Really, R241? That would be interesting...
GG's head is gonna burst when she meets Mike's Italian girlfriend...I can't wait!
Lily looked good until I saw her in a bathing suit with those giganto jugs. They are way out of proportion. Why would she do that to herself. I know she's the Persian Barbie, but this is ridiculous. A man must've been involved in the boob decision...
Seriously, why look like a fool with big juggs and skinny body. People are laughing behind her back.
Everytime I see Asa in a hat, Karma Chameleon plays in head.
I want Mike to ravage my hole. How big is Iranian Jewish cock?
I can't believe I actually like watching this show. I wonder how Mike is doing in Reza's business.
why would anyone watch this trash?
I find myself increasingly smitten with Omid. His nose is longer than some dicks, and probably great for penetration purposes.
Once I saw the episode where her mother is the only one bringing in money and her father supposedly can't earn money the alarm went off...
They do what a LOT of certain people in the LA area do... they work the system. They all drive Mercedes and collect big fat checks from the Government.
Reza and the bikini salesgirl are in on the joke, right? The "spiritual" one is the worst. I kind of like the drunk girl but I hate the angry/violent girl. Her bf is kinda hot.
Where does Asa get her money from? She owns a very expensive home in Venice, CA and drives a MBZ SL Roadster.
Initially I assumed that her family had money. She then stated that her family is surviving on $30K a year via her mother who works as a travelling nurse.
She says that she is a Persian Pop Princess but has never performed anywhere.
At least the others have jobs and a source of income. Asa on the other hand has no visible means of support apart from the guest house on her property which she rents out.
Obviously she is receiving some type of compensation for being part of the show but it cannot be nearly enough to support her current lifestyle.
Does anyone have any info on this?
Omid has a hairy hole
Traveling nurses make $50-$100 an HOUR. Not a year.
Her mother must not work very often then. A friend of mine is a traveling nurse. He hates the lifestyle, but the money is so good that he can't quit
Asa claims that her mother only makes $30K per year as a travelling nurse and is the only source of income for her family.
I wonder what the explanation or the source of her income is?
seems suspect to me...
I want omid to pour diamond water all over me and lick it off.
I's like to bury a diamond in his no no and mine it
How is it that a fat fug like Reza thinks he's some hot ticket? Is being on a trash reality show produced by Seacrest that boosting to an ego?
Reza's dad seems sweet. I am guessing he left the family because he couldn't stand Reza? Still it was an interesting story how his grandmother was shamed. I wonder what happened?
There was a brief period early in his life where he was legitimately attractive. Then he became amazingly ugly. His body has such disgusting proportions now, and I'm surprised that he hasn't tried harder to fix that.
More Omid, please. His nose is longer than Mike's dick.
Anyone else the cash bar at GG's company launch party?
I agree ever Iranian I know as well refers to themselves as Persian. The worst is Gigi although her family seems nice enough.
I am surprised we are not seeing Reza in more caftans and earrings...
The only reason Iranians often call themselves Persians is because they know Americans know nothing at all about geography or history. They know that if they say they're Persian, few Americans will know they are from Iran, which most Americans have an irrational fear or hatred of.
Iranians are the most pro-American people on earth. It is ONLY their fascist rulers who are anti-American.
Well, that may be r267 but I think this bunch of spoiled, selfish, self-important wastes of space give Iranians a lot worse name than any Ayatollah!
I want some Diamond Water!!!!
What is going on with Reza's hair? I have not seen that style on anyone else and I live in Weho.
Yes, Reza's hair is ridiculous.
I like him, but his hair is awful.
Omid looks like he has a huge cock.
Omid looks like he has a musky anus and nutsack...
Omid and Mike needed to suck each other's dicks. I got strangely turned on by seeing them fight.
[quote] Omid and Mike needed to suck each other's dicks. I got strangely turned on by seeing them fight.
Omid is the hottest guy on the show. Ryan Seacrest must have "hand picked" Omid to be on this season, strictly for the hotness factor.
Miss Seacrest KNOWS her big dicked boys, doesn't she?
I think that Mike is secretly gay. Something about him....
Reza's hair looks straight out of 1930's Germany.
There, I said all of it.
I think Mike's brother is really his lover, and the family helps cover for him.
I agree with everyone, Omid is hot. I'd drink a tub filled with his dirty Diamond Water.
Find the early 20's picture, R277. He was actually handsome for about 5 years.
The hair, the mustache, the big gut - doesn't he have anyone around him telling him none of it works?
Reza's big gut is the worst, R280... I actually cellulite on his waist during one of the episodes.
Mike has no room to talk, though... He's got nice titties now, but you can tell that he's going to seed pretty quickly.
Omid, need a nose job, then he might have a chance.
Do you think Omid has a spikey penis?
The biggest laugh I had was seeing Lily's before and after plastic surgery pics.
The chicks at lipstick alley are her biggest fans and saying stuff like.
Oh she is so pretty, she looks the same, I see no difference.
The bitch looks like a 3rd rate Jenni from that Jeff Lewis show.
The bitch looks like a totally different person.
R278 OMG! She still had the stupid hair too. She looks like a bobble head to me.
Is she like Kim from the Atlanta Housewives? Does Lilly wear a wig? Her hair weights more then she does.
Is Omid joining the cast?
They're like the Kartrashians. Just a pack of beige savages who aren't shy about whoring themselves out to lowbrows and congenital idiots who enjoy watching them.
I kind of like to see them...because it reminds me that all people from the Middle East are not all the same.
Some of the men are really rude to women so, I'm hoping they are not all the same.
Did anyone else catch the group trip to Mexico??
It turns out that Mike has a HUGE dick according to MJ. She saw him in the bathroom and since she's a "conniseur of cock," he must be huge.
The other thing is, Mike seemed to be getting very friendly with the gay guy with the big hat. Of course Mike was drunk off his ass, so there's that. But at first they were just talking by the pool, then they had their arms around each other, and then they seemed to be touching dicks!!
That was an awesome episode. I would bet money that Mike is bi-curious and has probably fooled around with guys before.
I saw that episode and it was a lot of fun. They really know how to let loose and have fun.
Lilly, not so much. I kind of feel sorry for her.
I wonder which is bigger: Mike's dick, or the stick up Lilly's ass on the Mexico trip? What a buzzkill she was.
I would like Mike and Omid to have some nice foreplay, 69, rimming and flip flop intercourse
Anyone see the two-part reunion?
Reza claimed that guy that hooked up with M.J. was seen at gay clubs.
Hmmm, history lesson. Before 1935, Iran was known in the west as Persia. That year, Reza Shah asked the UN and other nations to replace Persia with Iran. The preference, no doubt, comes from a desire to connect with the old Persian culture and not the Islamic fundamentalists that most Americans associate with Iran.
[quote]I would like Mike and Omid to have some nice foreplay, 69, rimming and flip flop intercourse
I'd rather see Mike suck and fuck with Filippo from [italic]Jerseylicious.[/italic]
Reza is a gross, vile person. Can we ask him to stop speaking on behalf of all gay men?
Agreed, R296. Just because Reza can't be monogamous doesn't mean that other gays cannot be.
It's awesome that the Persian Drake turned out to be gay.
Asa may be marginally insane but she seems kind of cool. Mike too. The rest, you can have them. Sad, sad people. I am embarrassed for them.
R291 MJ is a connoisseur of what cock? Who has fucked that girl? She makes the Jersey Shore Crowd look like supermodels.She might have blown some skeevy doughy guy if he was absolutely blacked out but otherwise?She's a skanky little butterball.
Mike is OK at best but he's a bit of dick. Reza is some right about gay monogamy, there are different rules for straights.Asa is wacky BUT she's more real than Gigi or MJ. Poor lazy,Gigi what a pretty mess she is. She gets a Cracker Jack ring then claims she was engaged. What a nut she is....
Lilly won't be back next season. Too dull. Actually, I kinda like her. Seems ditzy but harmless and I like that she didn't play for the cameras like the rest do. Mike seems nice but kind of a dope. MJ and Reza are both lethal. Asa and Gigi should just kill eachother.
And what's up with Sammy? He was a regular last season and an irregular this season?
MJ should just refuse to comment about her criminal past. Trying to minimize it by claiming she was railroaded by a public defender and fooled by Nigerians just makes her sound shadier. And she sold one condo last year while Reza's 40-year old ass lives in a studio? I thought all these Iranians were supposed to be rich from that money that the Shah looted?
R302 Sam was one ugly fat fuck. Is it true they didn't want him back full time? I wasn't a fan BUT gained a new respect when MJ's cunty mom made fun of Armenians and Jews he had a good sense of humor about her silly stereotypes.
Wow...you people actually watch that program?
Seriously, can someone tell us what Asa does for income? She talks about having two degrees from UCLA, her house is AMAZING, her family is poor, and they only show her doing diamond water and pop princess stuff, which must cost money at this point.
She evaded specifics about her job on the reunion show. What does she do?
Asa's botfriend is a Michael Jackson's nephew or something. Does that afford you a fabulous house in Venice? Hmm...
What about MJ's criminal past? I wasn't aware of it.
Asa's boyfriend is Jermaine Jackson, Jr. so I'm sure he's probably helping her pay the bills.
I actually would rather see Sammy than that annoying Lilly. I now have some respect for Sammy since he called Reza out about his meanness to M.J. And I hate Lilly's voice!
