  • My beef with Ryan Seacrest

    By Karmel Melamed

    April 1, 2013 | 6:26 am

    Last year when the Bravo network debuted their new reality television program “Shahs of Sunset” which was depicted the lives of young Iranian Americans living in Los Angeles, I watched a few episodes of this show and was disgusted. I am not a fan of reality television in general...

  • The Shahs of Sunset – The Rise and Fall of Reza

    By Ilana Angel

    March 14, 2013 | 11:17 am

    I have been very fair in my blogging of The Shahs of Sunset.  I liked them season one, interviewed a few of them, and watched with delight as they made their way through reality TV stardom.   They were funny, fresh, didn’t take themselves too seriously, were proud of their...

  • The Shahs of Sunset Wrap It Up

    By Ilana Angel

    March 5, 2013 | 10:57 am

    When we met these people it was instant love.  As the reunion for the second season ends, they leave with not only my not loving them, but my having lost respect for the group.  This is a miserable bunch of people who let fame ruin them.  They went from fun and fabulous to mean and...

  • The Dark & Dirty Shahs of Sunset Reunion

    By Ilana Angel

    February 18, 2013 | 1:16 pm

    A reunion for this show was probably not a good idea.  We saw these people first season and it was love, on the second season the shine was off and we saw that perhaps they were not as great as we thought, then we get this and see that there are not a lot of redeeming qualities...

  • Fame is Ruining Shahs of Sunset

    By Ilana Angel

    January 14, 2013 | 5:56 pm

    I love this show and like a lot of the cast.  Last season it was frustrating there was only six episodes and I was excited for them to come back with a full second season.  I did not blog about the first two shows because of time restraints, then I was away on holiday for two...

  • Shahs of Sunset Finale Recap - Finally!

    By Ilana Angel

    May 1, 2012 | 5:47 pm

    I don’t know what is harder to believe, that the first season of Shahs of Sunset is over, or that someone at Bravo actually thought that 6 weeks of this show would be enough.  Really Bravo?  We are hooked, and now we are also pissed.  These people make for good television and 6...

  • Shahs Of Sunset – Poppa Can You Hear Me?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 11, 2012 | 9:27 am

    It’s a drag this season is only 6 shows because we are just starting to get into it and they will be gone.  It’s been interesting to meet these people and I hope when they return for season two, Ryan Seacrest lets go of the fake situations and just lets it flow.  These people are...

  • Shahs of Sunset: Colonic Anyone?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 4, 2012 | 8:57 am

    We start this week with Reza going over to GG’s for lunch. She is pretty and Reza is divine, but it felt a little too scripted to me.  I’m not sure if Bravo or Reza scripted it, but he got out of having to go the anniversary party of GG’s parents, and we were stuck watching an...

  • A Conversation with MJ of Shahs of Sunset

    By Ilana Angel

    April 1, 2012 | 4:51 pm

    I have interviewed a lot of reality personalities.  Some have been around for a long time, and some are new to the spotlight.  I have liked most and loved a couple, but never have I spoken with one who truly changed me.  Not in star struck way, but in an authentic and heartfelt way. ...

  • Shahs of Sunset:  Who Does That?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 25, 2012 | 10:41 pm

    We start off with the final moments of the Vegas trip for Reza’s birthday. Everyone is packed and ready to go except for MJ, who has not even started to pack.  You have to love MJ.  I have not figured her out yet but we know she is a sloppy drunk and seems to have absolutely no...

  • A Conversation with Sammy Younai of Shahs of Sunset

    By Ilana Angel

    March 25, 2012 | 6:58 pm

    I had the opportunity to talk with Sammy this week and I must tell you that I was really surprised by him.  I‘m not sure what it was exactly that I was expecting, but it was not what I got.  Shahs of Sunset has only been on for a couple of weeks and so it’s hard to say how he...

  • Life, Death, Love, Hate, Faith & Prayer

    By Ilana Angel

    March 19, 2012 | 9:34 pm

    It has been an interesting 24 hours.  A series of events have made me examine my life and the future of my child.  It has also made me look at how I am living.  Life is fragile, the world is unstable, and no dream should ever be left unfulfilled.  I want to live bigger and better.

    I...

  • Shahs of Sunset – Why So Much Hate?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 19, 2012 | 12:33 am

    I am not ashamed to tell you that I like this show.  It would be a lie, but I am not ashamed.  Truth is, I love it.  This is a fun, entertaining, mindless and fun romp into lives of a group of friends that happen to Persian.  Their religions vary, but that does not matter because...

  • The real shame in ‘The Shahs of Sunset’

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 12, 2012 | 5:07 pm

    I made it 31 minutes into the over-hyped “Shahs of Sunset” before switching it off, less out of offense than of boredom.

    The new reality show from Ryan Seacrest productions is a stunningly unoriginal look at L.A.’s Iranian-American community, but because it is the first such...

  • Shahs of Sunset - Hello? We’re Persian!

    By Ilana Angel

    March 12, 2012 | 2:54 am

    The wait is over.  Shahs of Sunset has been in the works for a long time and it finally premiered.  There has been a lot of talk about this group, and most of it not good.  They have been labeled bad for Persians, bad for Jews, and bad for America.  At the end of the day they are a...

  • Reality TV Overdose

    By Ilana Angel

    March 10, 2012 | 10:03 am

    I watch much more reality television than I write about.  Some shows are impossible to recap because they are simply not good, and others I watch for me, and so blogging about them makes it work, and therefore takes the pleasure out of it.  While I have many favorites, I can’t...

  • Shahs of Sunset—the Love & Hate Begins

    By Ilana Angel

    March 4, 2012 | 6:25 pm

    Next week will mark the debut of Ryan Seacrest’s newest reality show, “Shahs of Sunset”.  I am a lover of reality television and I am excited about this one.  I live in LA, have some Persian friends, and this will be a fun romp. They seem cool, with just the right amount of...

  • The bad, the worse and the ugly

    By Gina Nahai

    February 29, 2012 | 2:43 pm

    A painfully unappealing, unemployed woman in her late 30s with sumo wrestler thighs who wears 10-inch heels and a micro skirt to push around a pink stroller in which she carries her pair of Chihuahuas; a less unattractive, also unemployed woman in her late 30s who wears 10-inch heels...
