'Shahs of Sunset' Premiering March 11 on Bravo

Bravo’s latest series, Shahs of Sunset, will be premiering March 11 at 10 p.m.!

The reality show centers around a group of Persian-American friends living in L.A. “who are trying to juggle their active social lives and up-and-coming careers while balancing the demands of their families and traditions,” according to its website.

“These passionate socialites are fervent on the dating and party scene, but seeking approval from their family they face pressures to settle down and marry within the community. From outings on Rodeo Drive to traditional Persian feasts at home, this series celebrates the unique lifestyle of a group of friends who have worked hard for what they have and are not afraid to flaunt it.”

Shahs of Sunset – featuring cast members Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Reza Farahan, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Sammy Younai, Mike Shouhed, and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi – will be produced by Ryan Seacrest‘s production company.

@Charlie: I cosign on your observation. Is this mess necessary, is there some kind of demand to see a budget bunch of Kardashians.

Do these reality shows ever STOP? I am so sick and tired of these types of shows already. Where are the original and unique shows nowadays starring real celebrities, not these wannabes!

This is a joke, as a Persian American im appalled! This cast is NOT 100% Persian, and they are not know in the Persian community of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills). This show must be completely contrived. Know one cares about a bunch of old F*cks, if you want a since of real Persian-American culture go to Westwood!! This is a joke to disgrace the name of the shah with this smut, just because you can speak farsi doesn’t make you Persian (most arabs, armenians, afghani, speak farsi but are definitely NOT PERSIAN) this is propaganda!

P.S
Im A Real Persian American born in raised in Beverly Hills, and i have never heard of these Fers as Persian’s, i’m in the scene. Westside 310

As a persian, i am embarrassed and disgusted by this. This is so pathetic….. we dont need more negative media attention.

Uh the Kardashians are not Persian. No connection whatsoever

@Gossipgirl: They’re actually worse than the Kardashians, believe it or not. I came across a promo, and I just couldn’t watch the whole thing. They’re arrogant and think they’re better than everyone else just cause they have money. Little do they know that money can’t buy class.

I’m Arab and it’s the first time I know there are some of us speak your language even the people of Arabian gulf they don’t speak it. Unless you mean the Persians who originally from Iran but Arab no

@nin: you won’t find any attractive people there only ugly with big noses.

@Liza: Racist much?

Kim Kardashian’s Father, Robert Kardashian was born to an Iranian-Armenian Father. So yes, she slightly persian. When this show picks off im sure that they’re all become TV friends and help each other in the ratings.

@Charlie: Yes I’m very racist Charli .. I hope you don’t mind and I think the French are beautiful , call me racist now

@Liza: I don’t know what that means. And quite frankly I don’t care.

Liza; I have persian girl pals and trust me they got a lot of attention! you’re wrong!

ah and one more thing Liza, there is no way french people looks better than persian!

First of all, I’ve never heard of these people. They seem similar to Kardashians so they’re not gonna go good. Let’s face it, Kardashian’s are the reality queens.

Do you remember that other family that was thought to be the next thing? Yeah… you never see them now!

Even though i think these types of reality shows are stupid I kinda want to see it because I’m persian… I guess I understand why my italian friends want to watch jersey shore lol

@Malika: You’re right. The Kardashians know how to handle the media, I’ll give them that. They’re business people. I’ve never heard of these guys, and people who want to watch reality, will obviously watch the Kardashians and one one of their billion spin offs. It’s like why would you want to watch the copy of the original when the copy is not good?

Reality show producers know what to produce for consumption of the masses and this one is no exception. Stupid reality show is redundant; they are all stupid. Having said that, let me ask you if you would have had much problems with this show if it was about some not so hot looking Greeks or Italians. The fact is that Iranian Americans are becoming more visible than ever and “our” accomplishments are amazing. So be honest with yourselves before you start typing you knee-jerk impulses and use this as a platform for your agendas and insecurities.
