Despite a season full of ups and downs, Shahs of Sunset wrapped up Season 3 on a high note with a trip to Palm Springs. Reza turned 40 and the whole crew (with the notable exception of Lilly) came together to celebrate. Mike and Reza put their rocky recent past, and their business partnership, behind them for good. MJ and GG managed to get through a weekend with no major eruptions (although we had a near miss when GG took a bikini to the forehead). And, most heartwarming of all, Reza stayed true to his extravagant style and popped the question to Adam with the signature Cartier little red box and a yellow gold band engraved with “Love.”
So, with all this love in the air, I got to thinking that the Season 3 reunion was going to be all sunshine and rainbows. Maybe it would be a little boring even with everyone getting along so swimmingly. Even Lilly seemed to have done some soul searching and realized she missed the group and it looked like maybe she would make an effort to make amends.
As it turns out, these Shahs will still be bringing the drama to this year’s reunion. When I really think about it, it’s actually obvious. These relationships fluctuate in the space of one trip through the Starbucks drive through so why should they still be getting along months after filming wrapped this past August? And, even if things do start out smoothly at the beginning of the night, it’s a sure bet that these passionate Persians won’t be smiling throughout.
The Season 3 reunion is filmed at what looks like a dinner party setup. And the table, chairs, settings, decor are all, you guessed it…gold. Kinda like this but with less confetti and laughter:
Andy is, of course, situated right at the head of the table so he’s got a front and center view of all the craziness and drama. So, what exactly can we expect from the Shahs this year? According to Golnesa, this group’s hottest of hot heads, “I think this year’s reunion’s going to be a lot more personal…probably less viscous but more intimate and sad and touching because some things have happened this season that were just, not just shit-talking, but real hardcore, real heartfelt stuff.”
Well, here’s the preview clip from Bravo…I’m not sure “touching” is the first word I’d use to describe what we’re about to see:
Be sure to tune in next Tuesday, February 18 @ 9pm to catch all the rest of the drama! Were you a fan of Shahs of Sunset Season 3?
