Seriously? I feel like the person who has to report to Burger King on a holiday. How much longer are we going to watch this shit? Can’t we just talk about The Blacklist and AHS:Coven and Scandal and Revenge and ….. just better TV? But here we go, because Bravo has you all so sucked in that you cannot, will not, venture out.
Mike and Reza go to some hairloss facility to try and keep Mike from going bald. Because Persians are know the world over for being practically hairless. Much like Armenians. Clearly this is a moment of crisis. Next the dermatologist comes in to explain Mike has flaky ears. SIGH. Both are Iranian doctors. No infomercial here at all. Continue reading
Sigh. I am harkening back to the day when this used to be exciting and fun! I would chat with you about things on the teevee and we would laugh and laugh but it just keeps getting more and more ridiculous and I think we all need to travel more. Stop what you are doing a book a fucking trip somewhere. ANYWHERE. Because we are NOT amused by this shit anymore. We have reached our limits. Enough already.
Okay, every year, GG goes white water rafting? Um. REALLY? Okay I will suspend disbelief and not mention that Bravo is paying for the fucking rafting trip. Let’s get on with it, #YAWN
GG is exactly right. I guess MJ had to get the bad edit/storyline eventually. Reza and MJ are going for facials. MJ is in love with her gay. Girl??? You have to get yourself a straight man. Reza LIES (are you shocked?) to get MJ to the white water rafting trip with GG’s family. Of course we must suspend disbelief again. Also, MJ is getting her “facial” in full on Tammy Faye Baker makeup. Because that is what we all wear to get a facial. Triple lashes, three inches of foundation and slut red lipstick. I just can’t. I love you MJ, but you are getting totally ridiculous. Continue reading
MJ and I follow each other on Twitter and I am a fan. No matter how much I like someone, I rarely agree with every single action they take or every opinion they hold. This is where I find myself with MJ. She has blogged about her disagreement with GG and I am really trying to wrap my head around her point of view. But I’m not being very successful in my efforts.
From MJ’s blog:
I struggle to write this week’s blog knowing half the Bravosphere is tweeting me evil comments from last night’s episode. All I can say is that I’ve been through worse, and despite the toils of my friendships, my priority is to stand up and take less shit from people around me. I love my friends, but I can’t take abuse without fighting back for what I believe. Our friendship dynamic is extremely complicated. Our emotions run high when we we’re faced with taking sides against each other. Bottom line: we feel loyal to one another, but being honest with each comes at a cost. Continue reading
I am so mesmerized by the David Blaine Magic Show I could barely pull myself away for this nonsense, but I have it taping so I can get back to it. I woke up the other morning thinking about Asa’s water bottle issues. Yes, I know. Also, I hate there opening song and wish it was Tehrangeles. Asa is the only Bravolebrity whose music I actually really like. Oddly, I don’t have a single thing other than my laptop that plays music in this house. I should probably fix that.
Reza who thrust Lilly up on a pedestal from the moment she was cast as “Persian Barbie” and talking about her Bentley this and that is now saying that Lilly thinks she is better than everyone else. Can you say complete 180 from last season? I knew that you could. Oh and Reza, loving friend that he is said on WWHL that GG and Sean are no longer a couple because Sean is gay. However Sean just got busted looking at some gir;s ass.
OMG! NO MJ! NO! Why are you breaking girl code and telling Sean about GG making out with Shayan? TOTALLY.NOT.COOL. GG would never do that to you! But she will cut you with a knife for doing it to her. GURRRRL! Then MJ grabs Reza and leaves. OH NO. MJ! Continue reading
When MJ and Mike were on WWHL last night things got a little weird. Right off the bat, Mike says that GG’s new boyfriend is gay. ARE THERE NO STRAIGHT MEN LEFT IN THE WORLD? After a break Andy says that we don’t know GG’s boyfriend or what sort of pond he swims in. MJ is looking boobilicious!
MJ, Do you think your animosity towards Lilly is based on animosity because of the success she had reached at her age? I can answer this one for you MJ. NO. it’s because Lilly is a ginormous twat! But MJ says that Lilly has been very open about the fact that she lives off her boyfriend. She doesn’t have animosity toward her at all she has a much more non-judgemental approach toward people. However, she is no longer being honest about where her money comes from and when Lilly comes after MJ she is going to defend herself. Continue reading
I have been online friends with Asa, MJ, and at times Reza ( who blocked me last season) but I am not sure I can keep watching Shahs of Sunset. OH LORD. MJ has called Mike over to express her dogs anal glands. No. Just Noe.
OMG More just NOE. Lilly comes in to shop with GG and she said Hey Gurl Hey! I am sorry that is my special thing with @koppelformayor the my lil sis from another mother! and father. Follow her she is in Cali and has LOTS of tea! GG made out with Shayan at Lilly’s party but she has a boyfriend. Um, they were on a break. Continue reading
As long as I am up I may as well watch the screener for Shahs of Sunset. The paperwork says Reza turns 40 and moves in with Adam. MJ starts thinking about her biological clock. Mike and Reza’s work situation is not going well and Mike needs to make some decisions about his girlfriend. Asa sells her diamond water, and takes the crew to Turkey and Iran to reunite with long lost family. GG continues to be off the chain and it seems Reza has tired of playing with is new toy, “Persian Barbie” but she remains in the cast.
We should says something about Reza’s hair. Is he wearing wig as he shops for a Porshe for his 40th birthday? WTF? I immediately see why Reza and Mike’s work situation is not going to work. Reza is basically just taking half of any of Mike’s new business but not sharing his own listings. Any thoughts that Reza may have reevaluated himself after lastseason is out the window within the first five minutes. Reza is buying a used Porshe. I like that they are being real. Reza leaves with no car.
MJ continues to try to mend her relationship with her mother. I’m sorry, I know this is her mother, but sometimes you have to distance yourself from family if they are always dragging you down. MJ tries to turn her mom into Cyndi Lauper. Not going to happen. Continue reading
I am not sure if I am emotionally ready for Shah’s of Sunset to return. Long time readers here know that when this blog first began, I did stories on Shah’s before anyone else even noticed there was a show. Because I was raised in Libya, I was quite fascinated with how Bravo and Ryan Seacrest would paint a show about exiled Iranians living in the US. Of course the first thing they did was ditch the word Iranian in favor of the antiquated and not synonymous at all, Persian. Because American’s would rather think of Disney characters than you know, terrorists seeking nuclear capabilities. Reza has stated many times that he is American and doesn’t keep up with Iranian politics. Continue reading

It’s gonna be a busy November! What will you be watching?
I have had to take a looooooooong break from the Shahs after the rampant Season Twoitis of last season. I just can’t take all the meanness toward MJ. I am hoping that Bravo decides to go away from that in season three. Andy Cohen loves Reza though so I am doubtful that anyone has spoken to him about being more likable in season 3.
Filming has been ongoing for season three for quite a while. We will be suffering through a 30th birthday party for Lilly “lil bit” Ghalichi which involves numerous “glam squads” and no less than five dress changes. le sigh. Continue reading
How did I not now that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was an educated, intelligent author? I have been enjoying watching him and other minor celebrities (he’s the only household name on the show, the others are…um..not) on Splash! There, I said it. For reasons I am not very clear on, Kareem has written a nearly 3000 word article for HuffPo about the real housewives. It’s interesting. But for today’s too long, didn’t read, Internet user, I will include some of my favorite parts below for those who don’t want to read the whole thing. And for the new folks that like reading such things I will direct you to another post I made, which is one of my favorites about Camille Paglia’s take on The Real Housewives franchises. After that story was brought to Bravo’s attention, Andy had Camille on WWHL. I’m predicting we see Karrem on WWHL soon.
EDIT: Kareem’s article is quite lengthy. It is not my intention to twist the intent of his writing to conform to my perceptions of it. I encourage you all to go to the link and read the entire thing and not rely on my extractions and commentary as representative of his opinion or overall assessment. I simply picked the most interesting points he made from my perspective to review. Your interpretations may vary widely.

Andy asks Latoya right away about Asa. Latoya says that of course she knows her and she is very sweet, and very natural and she loves that about her. Wow, I had totally forgotten that Nene cussed out Latoya on her season of Celebrity Apprentice before she quit! She called her CASPER! Speaking of Celebrity Apprentice, check out this article by Penn Jillette on his take on it, it’s goooood. Latoya says that Nene was really mean to her because she was listening to Star and being her mouthpiece, but once she had her falling out with Star, she apologized and told Latoya she was right and to watch out for Star because she was coming after her.
Time to talk to the other guy on the show tonight. Andy gives the guy 20 seconds on the clock to address the reunion show. He says, “I have one thing to say. You said that editing doesn’t count the viewers don’t buy it. Had you guys not shown the lost footage episode, the viewers would not have seen her therapist confront her about her drugs and alcohol and you would not have seen her make a fool of herself on Rosh Hashanah.” Another opportunity to apologize not taken. Who is shocked? Continue reading
