On the reality TV show Shahs of Sunset, everyone gets together for a pool party. That’s not unusual. This is a loud, fun-loving group of young adults who like to have a good time. But not everyone is on good terms, which is also typical. But at this party, the stars of Shahs of Sunset–including Asa Soltan Rahmati, Reza Farahan, Mercedes “MJ” Javid–are stunned silent. An unprecedented occurrence.
What quiets the normally chattering crowd? It’s when Mike Shouhed shows up at the party that things get trippy. Mike admits to posting an unflattering photo of Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi — with the words “Bad Trip’ scribbled across her face, on Instagram. The trip he’s referring to is one to Turkey. When he brings it up, GG loses her cool. She lets the bomb drop that Mike tried to sleep with GG in Turkey, and right in front of Mike’s girlfriend Jessica Parido — the one who converted to Judaism for him. The woman, in fact, that Mike is supposed to propose to any day now. Almost a full minute passes without anyone saying anything, including Jessica.
