Days after sparking controversy with a series of tweets about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Kim Kardashian is now planning to head to Kuwait and Bahrain, something Iranian-born "Shahs of Sunset" star Reza Farahan thinks is a great idea.

“Kim has a nice peace. I don't know if she can bring it, but I hope so. We need some peace in the Middle East,” Farahan told The Huffington Post. “I would say 70 percent of my family are still in the Middle East. You know, honestly, it breaks my heart when civilians are affected because of governments, you know. It’s really devastating because most of the people that live in the Middle Eastern countries just want the things we have here. They just want to live life. And it’s devastating to see all the casualties and fatalities.

"If I were in the Middle East I would be running sh*t," he added. "I would get rid of all these religious fanatics, there would be a gay pride parade going down the boulevard in all the major cities -- [there] would be kissing and hugging, not fighting. I can’t wait to go to Israel with Kim. If she’s in, I’m going.”

The 38-year-old openly gay reality star says he’s looking forward to the second season debut of "Shahs of Sunset," on Dec. 2 at 10 p.m. on Bravo. He promises it will be full of tears, laughter and friendships -- some of which are torn apart, and some of which grow stronger.

“I don't necessary consider myself the star of the show because we are a group, but people tell me they really love me and that feels great,” Farahan said. “And the haters are my motivators. The fact that there are people that are compelled to tweet such hateful things makes me really sad for them. They clearly have nothing going on in their lives. I don't respond to the Twitter haters. My skin is a little thicker than that. I have dealt with some real issues in my life.”
