Bravo renewed The Shahs of Sunset for a second season! That means Reza and little Reza are coming back for more in all of their gold wearing, chest hair glory! The finale this past Sunday drew in 1.5 million viewers, and 1 million of them were in the demo–that’s pretty damn great for a new series that’s not Housewives or Top Chef. I have to say that the series really grew on me, and Reza confronting his father in the second to the last episode was really powerful and touching. Here’s to season two! I just have one request…THEY HAVE TO GET RID OF SAMMY! He’s so gross, and so was his friend Naveed. Puke City! Yeah, I know I just sounded like a seventh grader, but there is no other way to describe him.
