Asa Soltan is dialing back her camera time on “Shahs of Sunset.”
The reality-star-turned-kaftan-purveyor, 41, won’t be returning to the Bravo show as a fulltime cast member following the birth of her first child, Soltan Jackson.
“You will only see me pop in briefly this season of Shahs,” she wrote in a lengthy statement on Twitter on Tuesday. “I’ll really miss sharing life with you this season. And I will miss the usual shenanigans with my crew. By the way as any new parent knows …I am dealing with a brand new set of shenanigans in this new Mami life.”
Soltan, who is married to Jermaine Jackson Jr., said her “plate is currently so full” between motherhood and her fashion line.
The reality show, which returns for its seventh season on August 2, shows off the opulent lifestyle of friends who share a Persian heritage living in Los Angeles.
Soltan came out of the show’s sixth season on the outs with her cast mates for keeping her journey with in vitro fertilization a secret, as cast member Mercedes “MJ” Javid was going through the same process and was open about her struggle to conceive.
Mike Shouhed told Andy Cohen on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” in October that the two no longer have a relationship.
“She is the biggest perpetrator I’ve ever met,” Shouhed said. “If my best friend is going through … infertility, and you’re not going to help me through this journey that I’m going through and pretend that your life is perfect, making me feel worse — being MJ — that’s not cool and I can’t forgive that. MJ is the sweetest person, she doesn’t have much of a family, so she looks at us, her friends as family members and if you’re going to lie to her and keep it a secret, you don’t deserve any love from me, that’s not cool.”
