Nema Vand Answered Fan Questions on YouTube
In December 2019, Nema Vand answered fans’ questions on YouTube. During the video, he responded to a fan, who asked, “What’s the hardest part of coming into the ‘Shahs’ social circle.” The reality television star explained that he felt he had to catch up in terms of their relationships with each other.
“I would say undoubtably is when you are coming into any new group of friends and this could be the Shahs, it could be your own group of friends, there is years, often times decades of stories and friendships and bonding that happened before you, so you’re kind of constantly feeling a little left out so I think that’s probably the hardest part is when you’re coming into a new group finding where you fit in. But I kind of pride myself on kind of getting along with everybody so and I don’t take s*** from anyone so that combination has served me well,” explained Vand.
The 39-year-old also shared that he is a massive Bravo fan and revealed that he had a particular fondness for “Vanderpump Rules” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“I have some friends on ‘Vanderpump.’ I know one or two people on the show and they’re dear friends of mine and so for a supportive friendship, I love watching them on the show and love seeing their lives,” explained Vand.
