Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan shared his thoughts on former Real Housewives of Orange County personality Kelly Dodd.
During a July 2022 appearance on Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga’s “Melissa Gorga on Display” podcast, Farahan admitted that “Shahs of Sunset” was canceled after its ninth season. He stated that he has no interest in continuing his career by commenting on reality TV shows.
“What strikes me is how disgusted I am with people who used to be on shows and are now commenting and everything is negative. You know? And I won’t name people, but like I never will. It’s not my thing, but like disappearing,” Farahan said.
When the “RHONJ” star asked him to name the people he was talking about, Farahan replied, “like Kelly Dodd,” who shares her take on the Bravo series on her YouTube channel. Gorga interjected that Dodd spoke negatively about her.
“She says the most horrible things about me. can i just tell you And every time I saw the woman, she ran to me. She’s like ‘Hello, how are you?’ She talks about my looks,” said the mother of three.
During the taping of the Melissa Gorga on Display episode, Farahan shared why he believes Dodd made negative comments about Gorga.
“In the world of ‘housewives’, if I put up people to be jealous of, pardon the pun, with boutique mention if there were any – you’d be at the top of this hit list,” said the ” Shahs of Sunset” star, based on Gorga’s Boutique Envy. “You’ve been on your show for so many seasons that you’re doing ‘Girls Trip.’ You have so much success, you have your relationship.”
Farahan also shared that he believes Gorga receives negativity for being one of the younger Real Housewives stars. The “RHONJ” personality then noted that while her castmates are usually older than her, her new season 13 co-stars are on the younger side.
“I’ve always been about 10 years younger than the rest of the crew, now I can’t say too much because the Bravo gods are watching, but we’re definitely starting to film and trying to attract some young blood and some younger girls, which I do I’m very happy,” said Gorga.
During a June 2022 interview on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville’s Brandi Glanville Unfiltered podcast, Gorga spoke about starring in “RHONJ” since season three. She shared that she regrets some moments of her time on the show.
“I definitely have moments where I cringe when I rewatch it, like especially the first few seasons and the previous seasons where I’m on my knees begging Teresa. Like ‘stop hurting us.’ There are definitely things I have regrets about,” Gorga said.
She then shared that she’s usually “pretty good at holding [her] cool” during the filming of “RHONJ”.
“That’s one of the things – I think I can keep my cool pretty much, I’m going with that [my husband] yeah [Gorga] Plus it drives him crazy because the crazier he gets the more I get wow you’re so irritable then he gets even crazier you know,” said the mother-of-three.
The thirteenth season of RHONJ is currently in production.
