I know I said I was done with this shit show last week, and I meant it. But I am amused by this “special time” for this episode. You see, Shahs as not been pulling in the ratings this season. As the former number one fan of this show in season one, I became disillusioned by season two. As you saw last week, I vowed to abandon the show entirely, and hell I still watch Vanderpump Rules! That ridiculous Thicker Than Water show usually has the 9 pm Sunday night slot. It’s a coveted spot because of the RHOA lead in. Thicker than Water has been beating the pants of in the ratings so Bravo decided to give the slot to Shahs of Sunset to see if that would help. Frankly, we all have so many Sunday night shows to choose from I don’t understand how Bravo gets any viewers on Sunday nights anymore. My point is, when a show is moved out of it’s time slot, it means Bravo is nervous about ratings and is ultimately trying to flush the season as quickly as possible. Shahs second airing did not happen until 1 am, after RHOA had three airings.
That said, let the shit show begin. We begin with Mike wondering WTF is wrong with Reza. Mike realizes Reza’s behavior is embarrassing everyone. Mike is uncomfortable with Reza being on the gay pride float for the gay bar that he insulted and embarrassed everyone in the night before. Mike calls Reza and tells him he doesn’t think it is a good idea for Reza to be on the float. Reza is a smartass (shocker) and says “You’ve become the ambassador for the float, I’m very happy for you.” Reza says who are you to call and uninvited me to a disgusting float that is an embarrassment to the gay community. WAIT WHAT? This as yet unseen float is the embarrassment to the gay community and not the dude as big as a gay pride float all by himself whose hobbies include smelling armpits, using the word faggot to out people who clearly are comfortable in the closet, and generally insulting all of his “friends” on national TV ? Good GOD Reza is delusional. Mike is pissed.
Asa is trying to get her mother to be more healthy. She is going to start at a very bad place. Green juice. She really needs to go through some gateway veggies before she gets to the whole juicing thing. She also tells her mom to drink more water. Her mom says she hates water. Which is hysterical since diamond water is Asa’s whole life right now. As Asa is juicing, her mother suggests adding some ice cream. The juice looks horrid. It is not green but somehow more of a shit color. Mom says it looks like diarrhea and vomiting together. I can’t stop laughing at this scene.
Apparently, Reza is flipping houses now. He seems a bit delusional about his future selling cost though.
Mike meets MJ and her ginormous boobs for lunch. I swear those puppies get bigger every time I see them! Mike says that MJ should not be supporting Reza’s horrific behavior. I would think of all people MJ should get this point. But she doesn’t. God I hate stiletto nails. But cotton candy pink stiletto nails? I’m having flashbacks to Phaedra’s funky pink eyeshadow. MJ finally gets it when Mike tells her that Sasha’s brother cried because of Reza’s hateful attack. Mike asks MJ not to come to the float either.
Ugh. Lilly. This entire scene is such bull shit it is not even worth repeating. Just know that it took place on planet Lilly.
Mike, his girlfriend, Asa and GG head to gay pride. I’ve never seen Mike dressed in such a gay way. It’s like he is dying to be hit on. GG is in love with all the hot gay guys. Their float is for Club Nur, I imagine this is likely the same parade that the Pump Rules people are in agan this year for SUR. Lilly shows up and jumps on the boat. It’s all peace, love and harmony with the Shahs without Reza and MJ.
After the parade the gang gets some street food, and who walks up but Sasha. he’s wearing nothing but skin tight white lycra pants with and interesting feature that accentuates his butt cleavage. It’s king of a keyhole thing.
Asa and invites Resa over to talk to him about the situation. I love Asa’s house. Reza tells Asa a very whitewashed version of what happened. Then he does a talking head where he cries about being a young Persian gay kid as if that has never happened to anyone else on the planet. Like oh I dunno, Sasha? Whatever, Reza.
