‘Shahs of Sunset’: Why Reza Farahan Says He and Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid Will Never be Friends Again
Casts of reality television shows are usually known for being catty and constantly fighting with one another. That’s what keeps the drama going, after all. So when two cast mates on a show have a genuine friendship, it’s a beautiful thing to watch.
One of the best reality television relationships was the one between Reza Farahan and Mercedes MJ’ Javid on Shahs of Sunset. The two had been friends for over 30 years and always had one another’s back, no matter if the person was right or wrong.
But apparently all that changed once Javid got married to Tommy Feight.
What happened between Farahan and Feight?
Feight and Farahan have never really cared for one another, but things escalated when Feight allegedly threatened to kill Farahan at his home on Sunday. In response, the Shahs of Sunset star requested a restraining order against Feight.
The order stated that Feight would have to stay at least 100 feet away from Farahan and his husband, as well as his job and home, according to The Blast.R
“At 2:18 p.m. on 5/19 he called and threatened my life by phone and at 2:34 p.m. he vandalized our home,” Farahan said of Feight in the document. “Adam Farahan was with me and there’s video of the event.”
LAPD officers have taken a vandalism report but Feight has not been charged.
Why won’t Farahan be friends with Javid anymore?
Continuing a friendship with someone whose husband threatens you and tries to destroy your home is probably not the easiest thing to do.
“I can never be friends with her again, because first she sent her little minion to come do her dirty work, then, in my opinion she sent her husband to come vandalize my property and threaten my life,” Farahan told People.
“What’s next? This is now beyond reality TV, this is real-life stuff that I’m dealing with,” he said. “I’m dealing with restraining orders, and I’m dealing with thousands and thousands of property damage. This is stuff that you can’t go back from. You can’t undo this.”
Farahan might have been able to remain friends with Javid had she apologized for what her husband allegedly did, but according to him, she hasn’t acknowledged the incident.
“Plus, it’s not like she reached out to me and apologized!” he continued. “If it were me and my husband had gone to someone’s home and vandalized their home, the first thing I would do is pick up the phone and I would call and say, ‘Hey, I am so sorry, I know you don’t believe me right now but I am devastated for what my husband has done to you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I will make the financial situation right, let me know how much damage he did, I will cut you a check for 10 times that amount. … Please don’t file a restraining order, please don’t pursue any legal action.'”
“I would be so remorseful if my husband had gone to someone’s home and vandalized it, I would be so remorseful if my husband had called and threatened your life, I would be doing everything in my power to make it right, but it’s been radio-silent.”
