The most eccentric, eclectic and artist of the Shahs of Sunset cast Asa Soltan Rahmati. The musically gifted star of the show explains she moves to the beat of her own drum. Her attitude and style seems to be the cause of a lot of drama between the girls. The cast tension between she and GG has bought the show millions of viewers per week giving Bravo more incentive to give the entire cast a pay raise including Asa. She reportedly is paid $130K in season 3.
Asa is 100% Persian. Her love is music and something she has perfected and been working at since she was little. On season 1 she was in the middle of putting together and EP which included the odd single “Gold”. The music video featured an appearance by Shahs co-star Reza Farahan who appeared shirtless. She does what she wants artistically.
Asa claims authenticity is the most important thing in her life. She refuses to conform to the standards and stereotypes. She had to think twice about being in a reality show. I don’t think Shahs of Sunset would be the same without her. Asa hopes people get to know the other facets of her culture. Persians are not just walking bags of money they have personalities, real stories and live real lives. There is a whole wide variety of levels to Persian Americans.
The Incarnation of Asa’s Diamond Water.
Okay girl, this is where I knew for sure Asa was more than just eccentric. She is crazy. This was the first time fans get to know about Asa’s business endeavor ‘Diamond Water’. Shortly after the chaotic trip to Las Vegas which ended in GG and Anita feuding Asa felt motivated by the drama feeling recharged. Diamond Water is a term she came up with to describe a feeling she has. She collects flowers that are prevalent in Iran and reminds her of her grandmother. Then she goes to the ocean and gets a big flask of water and puts diamonds in it. After the energy of the diamonds to get infused in the water and then puts the flower petals in there and puts the water in little bottles for herself. Once she sips the diamond water it instantly connects her to her inner Aries Fire Dragon Intergalactic Persian Princess. It’s like magic to her. Wow! I didn’t make this up.
In an appearance on What What Happens Live she talks more about the Diamond water and the price. You can actually get the diamond water from RealDiamondWater.com. It’s going to cost under $3 apparently. She now calls herself the Priestess of Diamond Water.
