Reza Farahan has admitted he isn’t proud of the fight that was featured on this week’s Shahs of Sunset episode — but maybe he should be!

Thanks to all of Reza’s drama, Tuesday’s episode was the most watched from the series yet. According to TheWrap, the episode brought in 836,000 viewers from the coveted ages 18-49 demographic and 866,000 viewers from Bravo’s key demographic, adults ages 25-54. The episode earned a total of 1.5 million viewers, making it the most-watched one to date.

The episode features a knock-out fight between Reza and his neighbor, an Iranian gay man named Sasha, who was invited over to Reza’s apartment by the reality star’s boyfriend. Unfortunately, Reza and Sasha didn’t exactly hit it off and when the two ran into each other at a club the next night and offensive words were thrown around during a tense screaming match.

Reza has since taken to his Bravo blog to express his embarrassment regarding the whole situation.

“Those few days were very difficult for me, and reliving it while watching this episode was equally as difficult. What I want to tell you is that I’m flawed, I’m aggressive, I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m broken, but I’m a work in progress,” Reza wrote. “I have many good qualities, but just as many bad ones. What I pride myself on is that I’m willing to admit when I’m wrong, seek guidance, and try better in the future.”

But with ratings like the one this episode got, something tells us that the producers at Bravo aren’t quite as regretful about the fight.

“It happened, I’m not proud of it, but the journey that it took me on made me a better person,” Reza wrote. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to ‘get away’ with anything. I own up to my mistakes and this was a big one, but at the end of the day, I’m gay too.”
