Reza Farahan, the star of Shahs of Sunset, talked about Kelly Dodd, a former Real Housewives of Orange County.
Farahan acknowledged that Shahs of Sunset was canceled after its ninth season during a July 2022 interview on the Real Housewives of New Jersey podcast Melissa Gorga on Display.
What I do notice is how dissatisfied I am by people who used to make programs but now they make commentary that is all negative. You know? And im not going to mention the peoples names but like I would never do that. It's not my thing, but like I'd vanish.
Farahan replied, like Kelly Dodd, who has shared her views about the Bravo series on her YouTube channel. Gorga responded by saying Dodd has made comments against her.
She says the most horrible things about me. Can I just tell you? And every time I have ever seen the woman, she's run to me. She's like hi, how are you? She talks about my appearance, said the mother of three.
Melissa Gorga - Reza Farahan Discusses His Thoughts
Farahan explained why he believes Dodd made sexist remarks about Gorga while recording the Melissa Gorga on Display episode.
If I were going to include people that you could be envious of, pardon the pun, with boutique mention, you would be at the top of that hit list, said the Shahs of Sunset star in reference to Gorgas' boutique, Envy. You have been on your show for so many seasons, and you have your connection.
Farahan explains that he believes Gorga receives negativity because she is one of the younger Real Housewives actors. She added that while her castmates are usually older than her, her new season 13 co-stars are younger.
I was always ten years younger than the rest of the crew, so I cant say much because the Bravo gods are watching, but we are certainly starting to film and try to entice young blood and some younger girls, which I am extremely excited about.
Melissa Gorga Discusses Her Resentments About Filming RHONJ
Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, talked about her involvement with RHONJ over its third season. She admitted that she regrets a few moments from her time on the program.
I have definitely had moments where I cringe watching it back, especially in the beginning seasons and the previous seasons when Im like on my knees begging Teresa to stop hurting us. There are certain things that I have regretted, said Gorga.
She said that while filming RHONJ, she is usually quite adept at keeping [her] cool.
I think thats one of the ways I can keep my cool pretty much, and I do that with [my husband] Joe [Gorga], because it drives him f****** insane, because the more Ill be shocked you're all over your head, then hell get more crazy, you know.
The thirteenth season of RHONJ is currently in production.
