I personally don't believe what she says is completely true. I too am from the community (actually in dental school currently) and was really looking forward to what should have been a great show. While the prince/princess probably exists in all persians, we have tons of other attributes that they could have shown and taken advantage of to make real entertainment. I also don't believe that this show will really impact the facade that the persian community has produced over the decades.
I think I could have personally recommended a better cast. Jersey Shore became popular because they just found complete morons and scripted something for them to do. They found morons for this show too but whoever scripted it doesn't have a clue what persians actually do. Show will fail due to a lack of research and poor casting.
Oh yeah, why is the cast so frikin ugly?!! We're known for being good looking! Sure there are plenty of ugly ones too but damn the large majority of the cast is hideous!!!
