Who’s at the center of this fight between Destiney Rose and Sara Jeihooni this season on Shahs of Sunset?  Sam Jeihooni. Yes. That’s right.  Sara’s little brother. Sam. He came into the show, and right away Destiney was smitten with him in Las Vegas. 

Destiney was all about him, even though Sara implicitly expressed her dislike of this whole situation. Sara even went as far as to confront Destiney on this matter. Sara inserted herself into their relationship the entire season, all while Sara kept talking about how she used to date R. Kelly. Yawn. 

An Insta Live with Sam revealed much more: 

               “She kinda paid me to be on the show,

 to be honest.” 

Bravo usually has a zero tolerance policy with paying people who are not main castmates, therefore this is definitely not the norm. Sam spoke to me directly about the complex relationship between Sam and his sister. He further said, 

            “She tried to get me on the show to use me to make her look good at my detriment.” 

Sam believes he and Destiney had a good connection and understood each other’s sense of humor.  They even hung out multiple times in LA and Vegas. And the awkward AF date where Sam is loudly belching and talking gibberish is explained by Sam as just a “weird misunderstanding.”

Whether you liked Sam or not, he was undeniably good TV, and a great addition to the story. And aside from R. Kelly, the only real storyline Sara had was tied to her brother. 

The Shahs of Sunset finale aired this past Friday, and a shady reunion through Zoom is currently being scheduled. Hopefully, Sam will make an appearance at the reunion!  If you want to see the full IG live head to Instagram (@amiryass_)
