I’m going to struggle through this recap tonight, but my heart is not really in it. I am trying to take a break from the horrible news today. I’m not sure this show is going to be much of a respite, but here goes.
Mike and Reza do an infomercial for a male focused nail salon. They discuss his bomb of a comedy routine that was basically just his usual misogynistic, racist way of being. But soon, we begin the whole GG is faking her RA conversation. I don’t think Reza understands that plenty of people take oral chemo and still go out and have a few drinks and enjoy a normal life. That said, I have noticed that GG has been sober most of the time since the campground intervention. They show old footage of drunk GG.
Mike says that he and Jessica had a great night of sex. Reza is thrilled with his manicure which inspires him to want to “finger somebody.” And with that comment Mike learns more about Reza’s sex life than he ever wanted.
MJ and Tommy go to a relationship counselor. Basically, MJ is turning in to her mother. She is at least beginning to realize that.
Later MJ calls Asa and says that there are issues with MJ and Tommy and she thinks maybe they are not compatible. MJ says she might go stay somewhere else for a while. Later, MJ confides in a neighbor that Tommy has called it quits and moved out.
Jessica and Mike meet for dinner. Mike seems to think everything is back on track. But it’s not. Jessica expects Mike to admit to all of his infidelities. Mike doesn’t want to come clean. He just wants to give a blanket apology and move on. He even manages to work up some tears.
Somewhere, Mike Shouhed is shitfaced.
Asa’s Kaftan Fashion Show
Asa is doing a fashion show at the Four Seasons to introduce her kaftan line. I kind of want one of those stand up steamers. I probably would not really use it, but for some reason I like to pretend that I would.
Reza, Mike and MJ have some drinks at the bar and begin to trash talk GG. Only on reality TV do “friends” trash talk their “friends” who are claiming to be ill. I’ve never had anyone I cared about tell me they were ill and questioned their illness. Reza says that GG has been partying hard since the camping trip but that is not what we have been shown. In fact, a few episodes ago everyone was raving about how great GG looked and how happy she is and how she has cut way back on the alcohol. Am I the crazy one here? Did that not really happen? Conveniently, GG is given a later call time for the scene and is sent in while everyone is talking about her.
GG says that she just found out she will be getting chemo via an IV drip for two hours once a month. Reza gets Shervin to do the dirty work and ask GG is she is really getting chemo. GG is furious. She says they have known about her RA for the past five years.
Meanwhile, Latoya and her BFF/Business Manager/ Fiancé arrive to the runways show. I can you didn’t know, Asa has been in a long term relationship with Jermaine Jackson Jr. They have been dating since season one and I was the first to break the story. I had to keep that secret for over a year until Asa let me post about it!
Jessica comes to the show and Mike seems shocked to see her there. I think Jessica has a fashion line of her own, if I am not mistaken so it makes sense that she would be there. We get a talking head where Reza uses the word “bitch” to describe both Jessica and Mike multiple times. He really should take Vida’s advice. Meanwhile, Jessica is texting away. Probably to her new dude charged with rape. Mike walks off and calls Jessica a fucking bitch. Jessica gets up and threatens him saying she will put him on blast right here in front of everyone if he disrespects her one more time.
Apparently, we are supposed to pretend that the cast doesn’t know yet about Mike’s horndogging way. It has been all over social media. When Mike and Jessica were at dinner she said something to the effect of IF they were to reconcile the whole world already knows their business.
Mike and Jessica’s argument escalates to the point that it delays the start of the event.
I need to take a minute to point out that Mike and Shervin arrived to an event at the Four Seasons in white undershirts and jeans. I’m surprised they were allowed in at all. Mike and Reza missed the actually runway show because Reza was trying to cool down Mike who is pissed because Jessica was texting someone and would not say who it was, and because she talked about his cheating on camera.
The event looked great. I love that Asa has older models (her mom!) and plus sized models as part of the show.
Mike lied about cheating in his confessional.
Next week: Belize! Check out my recon on the trip here!
