Asa Soltan Rahmati shocked her co-stars on the Shahs of Sunset premiere when she announced she was expecting a baby! And now that the hype has worn off, her friends have a lot of questions about the 41-year-old’s relationship with baby daddy, Jermaine Jackson II.
Asa and Mercedes “MJ” Javid have always butted heads over the Diamond Water creator keeping her relationship with Jackson off the show. But not tonight, MJ confronts Asa about some of the expecting parents’ plans.
“I mean, we practically live together. We’re going to move into a house together at sometime,” she says. “[My mom and dad] have their own house.”
Mike Shouhed chimes in about the couple’s cultural and race differences.
“The fact that he’s not Persian and he’s actually black, that’s a big deal in our culture still,” he tells her. “It’s a taboo thing.”
Asa glosses over Mike’s question about the stigma of Jackson’s race in the Persian culture.
“We know the future we want and we’re working towards it.” But that only seems to anger Shouhed more.
MJ doesn’t let her off the hook easily and tells her straight up that she’s full of it.
“Don’t dance around your life,” she says. “This is not where we are in life, to be like ‘Well, whenever, when it’s right, when it’s not right, when it happens.’ Let’s be real. Bulls—!”
In a confessional talking head, MJ blasts her co-star’s shady and secretive character.
“What’s the point of having friendships and relationships with anybody if one person is so shady and so secretive? Asa doesn’t know how to deal with her insecurities. She wants to cover them up and make them look so perfect. I mean, can we be real? Can we talk? What the f— is going on?”
Watch the tense scene unfold above and tune into the Shahs of Sunset on Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET on Bravo.
