Reza Farahan is one of the stars of "Shahs of Sunset," latest reality show by Ryan Seacrest. We spoke to him about the show, being openly gay, and what excatly happened in that scene that a court ordered to be deleted from the upcoming series premiere.

"Shahs of Sunset" follows a group of friends who are trying to juggle their active social lives and up-and-coming careers while balancing the demands of their families and traditions.

These passionate socialites are fervent on the dating and party scene, but seeking approval from their family they face pressures to settle down and marry within the community.

From outings on Rodeo Drive to traditional Persian feasts at home, this series celebrates the unique lifestyle of a group of friends who have worked hard for what they have and are not afraid to flaunt it.

Born in Tehran, Iran, and raised in Beverly Hills, Reza is a 38-year-old prominent player in the Los Angeles real estate world. He is one of few openly gay Persians in the community and often struggles with gossip and prejudice regarding his sexuality. Reza`s family supports him in spite of the pressure they feel to ostracize him.

Despite his untraditional style, Reza is an old fashioned guy at heart who wants a partner, a family, and the American White Picket Fence happy ending, but he is going to have to get past the baggage he carries from his upbringing to achieve it.
