Over the course of this season on Shahs of Sunset, one cast member has decided to keep her life very private. Asa Soltan Rahmati, who has been pregnant this season, has said that her baby daddy and longtime boyfriend, Jermaine Jackson II, likes to stay out of the spotlight. Meanwhile, Rahmati has distanced herself from several of her cast members as well. Her reasoning was that she said she no longer trusted some of her friends and that she was only met with negativity whenever she shared news about her unborn child.
Reza Farahan, one of her close friends, was the most in the loop about Rahmati’s personal life, but he felt put in the middle by Rahmati’s privacy requests.
After Rahmati’s baby was born, she posted the following message on Instagram about her decision to keep her baby and boyfriend private, saying:
I have been in solitude, honoring life with my new born son Soltan, cherishing our bond, celebrating in Gratitude our new Family, and getting to know each other now that he is outside my belly and in the world. The last two months have been the most magical days of our lives … Also, I will not be posting pictures of Soltan. Thank you for respecting our privacy.
One of the major story lines this season has been the “mystery” surrounding Rahmati’s pregnancy, at least as far as her friends on the show go. Mercedes “MJ” Javid has been wanting to have a child as well and Rahmati had asked her questions about her process, while going through her own. However, Rahmati kept her journey to motherhood private, so Javid and fellow cast member Mike Shouhed voiced that they felt Rahmati was being deceptive. When Rahmati shared on Shahs that she had frozen embryos, but she ended up getting pregnant naturally. In response, Rahmati posted the following messages on Twitter:
They want to talk shit … They clearly don’t know the difference between private and “secretive” … Again another word. Ring thrown around. “Fraud” lol do they know what privacy means? … It’s my life and I live it as I want. It’s NOBODYS business.
Rahmati also stated:
It was very very difficult to be pregnant around so much hate, judgment, and bullying from “friends”. But I do me. Period.
In addition to her fellow cast members having opinions about her pregnancy, they also had mixed views on her deciding not to get married to her baby daddy.
On the reunion episodes, host Andy Cohen asks Rahmati if she went through IVF for her baby. In addition, Rahmati voiced her upset over some of the comments that came from her fellow cast members on the show this season. And, Golnesa Gharachedaghi even asked Rahmati why she’s on the show in the first place if she wants to remain private.
Do you think that Asa Soltan Rahmati should leave the show?
