'Shahs of Sunset': Reza confronts MJ about Adam while she was hospitalized, fans call her a 'trash bag'
Reza Farahan and Mercedes 'MJ' Javid's friendship is going through testing times thanks to Reza's husband, Adam Neely's risque texts
The premiere episode of 'Shahs of Sunset' was just a springboard for the cast to move to bigger issues that are sure to create rifts and ruin relationships. Reza Farahan and Mercedes 'MJ' Javid's friendship is going through testing times thanks to Reza's husband, Adam Neely's risque texts.
Destiney Rose, Ali Ashouri and Reza meet at a restaurant to have a chat about the texts Ali has been receiving. Ali shares with Reza that Adam's messages had come to the point that he felt he was being sexually harassed by him. This statement put Reza off completely, who then raised his voice, questioned Ali and even threatened him that he would punch him if he leveled such allegations against Adam.
However, Ali came prepared with printouts of text messages that Adam had sent him. But Reza defended them saying he sends such texts to him and Mike Shahoud as well. In his green-room interview, Reza admits that Adam doesn't realize that sending overtly sexual texts might come back to "bite him in the ass" and can be used against him by people.
After going through the messages, Reza asked Ali if he had anything else, to which he said: "That makes me uncomfortable." Reza asked if he was so uncomfortable why didn't he discontinue being Adam's friend? Ali was shocked to see Reza attacking him.
Reza gets furious and within seconds, he is warning Destiney that if she or anyone in their friends' group continues to hang out with Ali they can stop being friends with him (Reza). But, he doesn't stop there. Ali and Reza's verbal spat quickly escalates into a physical one where Reza throws a drink at Ali and pushes him. Destiney intervenes to break the fight.
Later, we are shown Reza storming off and calling MJ, who is in the ICU, and confronting her about how she shared intimate information about his marriage with Ali, who is a "weasel" he doesn't trust. However, she had to hang up because her doctor had stepped in to check on her.
Meanwhile, fans feel Reza is a trash bag for calling MJ up and questioning her motives when she was at the hospital for an emergency procedure.
"Reza expected MJ to tell him about Ali when MJ had health issues & had to undergo emergency surgery. Then to text her the vile things he did & what he wrote on the internet. MJ did nothing wrong. She didn’t speak to either Reza or Adam. Destiney is to blame. #Shahs #ShahsOfSunset," a fan shared.
Another wrote: "So Reza’s husband is inappropriate towards other men and instead of taking it up with him, he physically goes after the recipient of those texts and then a woman who just had a traumatic birth experience and was in the ICU? What trash. #ShahsofSunset."
"So Reza calls MJ in the hospital to discuss his crappy marriage?!?! The world doesn’t revolve around him! #ShahsofSunset Destiny should’ve minded her business!," a viewer expressed.
"Rezza is a...he really called MJ who just had her whole uterus removed to confront her about some petty with his husband?? Like it’s not even that serious. He could’ve waited. What a trash bag. #shahs #ShahsofSunset," a user pointed out.
"Reza calling MJ after knowing what she went thru, was FUCKED UP. But does anyone expect different from him? Reza, MJ, GG.. they’re all toxic and abusive in general and with each other. #Shahs #ShahsofSunset," another user tweeted.
