Iranians, Jews in bed together

Persian-born reality star dishes on his Jewish and Muslim roots, circumcision, 'shiksas' and pork

This week on Joan Rivers’ e-talk show “In Bed With Joan” is Reza Farahan, of “Shahs of Sunset” semi-fame.

For those unfamiliar with “Shahs,” the thickly mustachioed Farahan has an unusual background, which he immediately shares with in the above clip.

“My dad’s a Jew, and my mom’s a Muslim,” he announces the very instant he pops out of Joan’s closet (literally) and hops into her bed. “And I’m a homo — in bed with a Russian Jew!”

There are many more fun facts to be had. We learn that Farahan is circumcised, eats pork, doesn’t like “hard-core Muslims,” does like the word homo, and calls himself Persian and not Iranian because most Americans annoyingly pronounce it “Eye-ranian.”

The biggest takeaway, though, is that “Shahs” would be exponentially better if it was all Reza, all the time. That guy is entertaining!
