Shahs of Sunset star Mike Shouhed charged weapons violations


The reality TV personality has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Shahs of Sunset star Mike Shouhed has been charged with 14 misdemeanors including domestic violence and weapons violations in Los Angeles following his arrest in March.

According to documents obtained by topplaywriting, L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer leveled 14 criminal charges against the reality TV personality, including four counts of domestic battery, two counts of attempting to dissuade a victim from making a report, and six weapons charges. Shouhed pleaded not guilty to all counts and is scheduled to return to court Aug. 29 for a pretrial hearing.

Shouhed was arrested for alleged intimate partner violence against his fiancée, Paulina Ben-Cohen, who was not initially identified as the alleged victim. He was released after posting $50,000 bond. At the time, Shouheds attorney Alex Kessel denied any wrongdoing on his clients part. My own investigation reveals no acts of domestic violence was committed by my client, Kessel said in a statement to PEOPLE. I have no doubt Mike will be exonerated. Please honor the presumption of innocence.

In a statement provided to topplaywriting on Tuesday, Ben-Cohens attorney Joshua Ritter said his client is looking forward to putting this sad situation behind her and moving on with her life. Ritter also said, Paulinas primary focus is on keeping herself and her children safe. She supports the work that the police and the City Attorneys Office have done and she continues to cooperate with them.

Shahs of Sunset, a reality series centered on a group of six Persian American friends juggling their social lives, careers, and family demands, premiered on Bravo in 2012 and ran for nine seasons. PEOPLE reported in April that the show had been canceled, citing a source close to production.

Representatives for Shouhed and Bravo didnt immediately respond to topplaywritings request for comment Tuesday.

Shahs of Sunset star Asa Soltan explains Chester Benningtons posthumous appearance

Shahs of Sunset vitopplaywritingers on Sunday may have been surprised to see an unexpected guest: Chester Bennington.

The Linkin Park frontman, who died of suicide in July, appeared on the Bravo reality show with his wife Talin. As it turns out, Shahs star Asa Soltan and her husband Jermaine became good friends with the couple after bonding with them on vacation in Hawaii. The episode was actually filmed late last year, when the late rocker visited a gallery show hosted by the reality star.

Following the episodes broadcast, Soltan appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and discussed her connection with Bennington with host Andy Cohen. It just breaks my heart, Soltan said. He was prolific, and an incredible soul. He was an amazing person.

Shahs of Sunset star Asa talks life-changing season know that the drama has been kicked up a couple of notches during the current third season. With two ntopplaywriting episodes alone this week, the show that follows a group of Persian-Americans living in Los Angeles tackled both serious and lighthearted cultural issues from homophobia to binge-eating Cheetos. topplaywriting talked with cast member and spiritual gangster Asa Soltan Rahmati about the crazy and transformative third season.

I absolutely love Season 3. Its pretty much absolutely hectic, Asa told topplaywriting. Theres a lot of things that are going to be unfolding thats really, really exciting. This season is so real and it gets more real and raw as we go on. And for me personally, a couple of extremely life-changing things happen for me.

Three life-changing things to be exact. First, Asa finally launched her business baby Diamond Water, a brand of diamond-infused alkaline bottled water. If Im going to create something, I want to create something to better the world. Asa hopes to one day see Diamond Water in every Whole Foods, spa, yoga studio, and more, while already having distribution interests from 10 different countries. I want to put out positive things and just the things we need as humans, and whats more important than water? Fans will also get to see Asas first art show, a very personal live video installation inspired by her childhood that may soon travel to galleries in Berlin and Paris. But nothing was as cathartic as the trip Asa took with the rest of the cast to Turkey, reuniting with members of her family for the first time in 30 years. After a chance encounter in their hotel lobby, Asa and Reza were also given the opportunity to visit the highly dangerous Iranian border.

Literally, our cameras were confiscated. Half of it was filmed on our iPhones, but its all on the show. Its crazy! After a plane ride, two buses, and a walk, Asa recalls being told to look out for Iranian snipers on top of towers because they would potentially shoot if they saw them. It was a very serious situation. Asa said the brief moment you see of the trip from the shows trailer doesnt even begin to describe what the entire journey was like, but she was apprehensive to reveal any more.

This week, the show saw Asa and cast members Mike, GG, and Lilly participating in the L.A. Gay Pride parade on a Persian-themed float, strongly and proudly making a statement to the rest of their culture. Unfortunately and fortunately, our culture is really, really old school. What that means is that it has been the same for thousands of years. I think people that are homophobic, obviously its disgusting, but they dont know better. We now live in a world where we are introduced to ntopplaywriting culture and ntopplaywriting people. Our parents have done a great job of being more open to the way the world is now and being more accepting, and I think homophobia is still something, sadly, that is big in our culture and in all old-school cultures. But I think we are getting there. The fact that we were on that float and a part of it, dont forget this is on TV. Millions of people see this and they see our support and that hopefully does something for people to open their eyes.

The float was for Club Nur, a Persian-themed gay club that Mike took the gang to, thinking it would help Reza meet more people like him, a.k.a. gay and Persian. What resulted was a giant fight between Reza and his neighbor Sasha, resulting in Reza calling Sashas brother the F word.

Its very, very complex, Asa says of Rezas behavior. The things he has to deal with that he still hasnt processed are still inside him. And it doesnt excuse that he said that word. We all agree that it was a mistake. But people have to understand that we are on a show and Reza is raw, whether they like it in a good way, they have to understand that he could be raw and say something they dont like. They have to allow for the unfolding of the emotional process. Hes older than Sasha. When he came out, it was not cool back then. It was not cool to come out in the 80s as an Iranian gay guy. I just wish people would be a little more compassionate here.

Enough explanation from me and hopefully useful for all of us.

Compassion always seems to be coming from Asa. I truly believe that the way you live your life and what you put out there comes back to you. I think that being negative is just pointless. Thats why Asa is very careful about what she reveals and doesnt reveal on the show, all while remaining 100 percent real. In reality TV, people throw around the term real like its nothing. But first lets make sure we define realness and we define fake.

Asa opened up last season and revealed she was in a serious long-term relationship with Jermaine Jackson Jr., who only appeared briefly on one episode of the show. And thats exactly how Asa likes it. My relationship is just something I keep sacred, and thats important in this world. Some things you just keep to yourself, you keep private. I dont need to share every aspect of my life. Jermaine is very private and doesnt want to be on TV, and not only do I understand it, I kind of dig it this way too.

With her anything goes attitude toward fashion, Asa believes there are some misconceptions about her from the show and makes it clear she is far from the granola hippie type that some people think. By the time I was 15, I had lived on three continents, three cultures, three languages, three religions. So thankfully I learned very early on that there is no normal. Normal is what you are. There is no one standard and everyone has to be like that. You learn that the way you are is OK, and everyone is different and thats beautiful.

Later in the season, Asa will try to help GG with her anger problems (Golnesa is a nice girl and has a nice heart, but she will get triggered very easy, and I think thats her problem) but doesnt seem to be in any rush to patch things up with Lilly, after she accused Asa of being a bad friend for not defending her against MJ at the dinner party from hell. That was kind of bullsh–. I dont like to be in drama by myself, and I definitely dont want to be in anyone elses BS drama. You can ask anyone there that night. That night didnt have to do with anything else except MJ and Lilly fighting like that. Asa literally found herself in the middle of the fight and, with a slice of truffle pizza in hand, she kept quiet. Theres BS drama on one side and truffle pizza on the other side. Which side would you choose? Truffle pizza wins every time, Im sorry.

With a thriving ntopplaywriting business launched and relationships with family and friends at their best, Asa says she is in the best place in her life.
