We begin the next morning with cameramen in Mikes bedroom in yet another fake morning scene by Bravo. The storyline is, Mike wakes up the morning after the Diamond Water launch party feeling rough and embarrassed. Jessica explains all the parts that Mike doesn’t remember.
Asa invites MJ and GG over to her house in an attempt to get them to reconcile before the trip to Turkey. I am SO excited about the trip but Asa and I may be the only ones actually looking forward to it. Seriously Asa? French Feta? Feta is Greek. I also want the recipe for that Apple Cider Vinegar Habanero sauce. But what did it go with? Asa tells them to just work it out. MJ wants to know what she did wrong. GG’s anger management techniques must be working for her because I would have gutted her like a fish right there. There is no way in hell she doesn’t know what she did wrong. Somehow they all calmly agree to squash it.
MJ meets up with Mike at the office and talks with him about his beef with Reza and his behavior at the Diamond Water launch. MJ want everyone to go to the opening of the Del Mar racetrack. Sidenote: MJ looks so pretty in her professional office attire. It’s been so long since we have seen her in anything but those crazy bustiers, I had forgotten how pretty she is when she tones things down and wears the proper size. MJ promises to stand up for Mike if Reza does anything stupid. IF? Of course he is going to do something stupid.
Next in the peace and harmony plan, Asa takes Reza to a yoga session. Reza realizes how HARD yoga is, despite how easy it seems when you just observe it. It was a great class. It was all about forgiveness and letting go of rage. Reza really seemed moved. Asa invites Reza to the racetrack with the crew. Reza agrees to go because it is in his contract.
Next up, Asa and Lilly get together so Asa could give her a cooking lesson. It is making me hungry. I neeeeed Asa to make me Persian food. Asa is talking about not being able to go to Iran because she is a political refugee. Lilly is in a different situation and doesn’t get that Asa can’t go back. Asa gets irritated by Lilly’s naiveté about her political standing in Iran. But the food looked fantastic!
On the morning of the race, Mike goes to buy a bottle of Cristal as a piece offering for Reza. The group will be traveling in a Rolls Royce stretch limo. They all manage to get on the road by 10am and the drinking begins. MJ is the one who starts the conflicts. Reza kicks it off by saying Mike said he was not MJ when they were fighting the other night. Apparently, that is a big ass deal. Then MJ says GG is walking a thin line with her. They all pull over for a break and dash into Starbucks. Apparently, while inside, Mike tells her not to eat a chocolate croissant. Sage advice, yet MJ took great offense. So far the problem with this trip is MJ.
Everyone is drunk on arrival and it is not noon yet. MJ is there at the invitation of a client which means that she should not be drunk. The box owners leave and cast stays behind in the box. Everyone remained civilized until they left and now, MJ is bringing up the chocolate croissant incident again. MJ is really going in on Mike. You know, Mike the one she MJ personally invited and promised to support. Reza and Mike are way to drunk to reconcile at this point. But they are going to keep running their mouths at each other.
Mike and Reza do make up. But MJ and GG get into it big time. Reza removes MJ from the equation, and MJ slurs out “I’m not going to Turkey with that bitch.” After some regrouping, they all head home. I’m assuming that the lack of footage of the car ride back, everyone passed out.
