MJ Wants Kate Chastain To Join 'Shahs Of Sunset' & A 'Southern Charm' Star, Too

Bravo has been leaning into the United We Stand theme among their franchises (just take a look at the upcoming Real Housewives All-Stars vacation and the terribly named Summer House Winter Charm), so why not keep going? When chatting with The Dipp about Season 9 of Shahs of Sunset, Mercedes Javid told us who she'd invite into her close circle of friends on the show, and while it's not a short list, she has a clear favorite.

"I could probably name 10 or 20 people that I would feel really comfortable with," MJ says, explaining that whenever she meets new Bravolebrities, she immediately feels an "instant connection." Whether it's the shared experience of living the highs and the lows of their lives on camera or being grilled by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, MJ says, "We are all friends with a lot of the talent on our network."

But if she could only pick one person, who would it be? At first, MJ says Leva, from Southern Charm — which, who doesn't love Leva? The newest Charlestonian Bravo star won over a lot of fans who missed Cameran Eubanks' no-nonsense and mature manner in a season full of... "betas," as Madison LeCroy said.

But Leva isn't the only one that comes to mind. After thinking about it more, MJ confidently states there's someone else on Bravo that she knows for a fact she'd have fun with, and that's former chief stew of Below Deck Kate Chastain.
