Shahs of Sunset’s Mike Shouhed: “The Reunion Is Pretty Intense” — Exclusive
Things may have ended on a warm and fuzzy note on last night’s Shahs of Sunset Season 2 finale, but the drama is far from over. For starters, troubled Golenesa “G.G.” Gharachedaghi — who physically tried to attacked co-star Asa Soltan Rahmati during an argument — still hadn’t resolved her differences with her co-stars and left her as the black sheep of the group. And we’re told the upcoming reunion episodes leave no stone unturned, with things getting extremely heated in the process!
Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with cast member Mike Shouhed yesterday as he prepared to reveal all in his upcoming Playgirl.com pictorial. He shared some secrets of the volatile reunion — and let us know what we can expect from Season 3.
What can you tell us about the reunion? When I left, I was so emotionally and physically drained. This past summer, when we shot season two, it was the best of times and the worst of times. To have everyone together again in the same room – especially after the huge fight between GG and ASA - it was pretty intense.
You clashed a lot with GG’s former fiancé, Omid, this season. They recently called things off. Has breaking up with him helped her relationships with the rest of you? You know, it’s like he was a pea – he was so insignificant. He was an excuse for her to act like a fool. She needs help with her issues. He was just a pawn in her game. A lot of overdue issues come to the surface during the reunion that have nothing to do with him.
Safe to say, you and GG go at it? The reunion was pretty action-packed, I can tell you that. Yes, tempers were flaring and I had it out with her over the whole engagement thing. I’ve been pretty calm about it until now, but…you’ll see.
With things still clearly so tense among the cast, how do you feel about the possibility of season three? I’d be honored if we came back. We still have a lot of unresolved issues that need to be worked out. I think season three would be a great way to do it.
