And when Reza enlists the help of his friend Destiney Rose in organizing Mike's housewarming party, she wastes no time inserting herself into the group's shenanigans.

"Shahs of Sunset" season five garnered 1.9M total viewers (up +21% from the prior season), delivering over 1M P18-49 (up +9%) and 1.2M P25-54 (up +21%), according to Nielsen L7.
This season, Asa is thrilled to share the news with her friends that she and her longtime boyfriend are expecting their "miracle" baby. But when her announcement is met with questions and they begin to cast doubt on her claims, her position in the group is jeopardized. This only adds to the stress of her fallout with MJ, who finds herself more determined than ever to expand her own family. Having accepted her fiancé Tommy's proposal last year and finally possessing a clear direction of where her life is headed, MJ's world is rocked when her father's health takes a turn. Reza finds himself entrenched in this girl-on-girl fallout and is eventually forced to choose a side, all while dealing with challenges inherent in the first year of marriage. His husband Adam's bout of baby fever forces him to learn the art of compromise.
Still reeling from his divorce, Mike works toward a fresh start with a flashy new home and promising business ventures on the horizon. But despite the fact that he is ready to date, his ex-wife is never far from his mind. Shervin, who also has love on the brain, is finally ready to take his relationship with long-distance girlfriend Annalise to the next level. But things get complicated when swirling rumors of infidelity leave him in the hot seat. Despite the fact that GG becomes embroiled in Shervin's tide of accusations, she is on top of the world. Having learned to focus her fiery energy toward improving herself and taking control of her Rheumatoid Arthritis, she lands an acting job in an off-Broadway play and accepts her boyfriend's surprise marriage proposal. Hoping that a trip to Israel will be the key to mending their tarnished friendships, the group quickly realizes that the drama is only just beginning.
