This episode of Shahs of Sunset is only the second one and already I am tired of the battle between Mercedeh and Asa that will resume in this episode over the affections of Reza. Reza is a scumbag, misogynist who women and THE gays (Capitalized to emphasis for those that the term “the gays” bothers) can no longer abide. Sure there are women (like Bethenny Frankel, based on her Talk Show) who love him and gays who fuck him, me and mine are not fans. So to have the storyline be two women clamoring for the affections of Reza for another season is going to annoy the fuck out of me. MJ, is MJ. But Asa Soltan Rahmati I hold to a higher accountability. Le sigh.
I am also behind because it took me all day to research THIS STORY about Bethenny Frankel, because apparently no one else could be bothered. So I am behind, and irritable and will not do WWHL with Mike Shouhed until tomorrow because WWHL is a PITA to recap. #Apologies.
On to tonights’ episode…
This used to be one of my favorite Bravo shows, but just the previews alone are irritating to me. GG wakes up at Shervin’s where she slept in his bed and he slept on the couch. She wakes up in full makeup with a camera crew. Come on Ryan Seacrest! And just look at her pitiful wrist with less than an inch of gold bangles. It’s all just a super disappointment at this point.
It seems like forever since we have had an episode of Shahs of Sunset. Hell Mike and Jessica have gotten married and divorced since the last season. Speaking of Jessica, she is still dealing with that man with the rape allegations. Someone sent me a like to her on a podcast with the guy from The Dirty where she says something like “he has always been nice to her.” Um really? This chick has the worst judgment in men I have ever seen. I thought my picker was broke, but this girl just needs to leave the men alone before she gets hurt or worse. Personally, I’ve found life to me much easier with having to deal with some man on a regular basis. If you are with someone who has been CHARGED WITH RAPE someone needs to fucking intervene. Has her family disowned her? How do you justify that in your head?
Let’s hope MJ’s new fiancée is someone who will be good to her. I really want her to be happy. I’m really looking forward to seeing Belize this season, as I have never been there. I really should start exploring South America. And I want to see Asa doing ANYTHING. I adore her.
We open with a scene of Reza sleeping alone with his dog. Reza admits that he sabotaged his relationship last season by being a whore at his bachelor party, and cancelling the wedding. He says he got more therapy and things are much better now between him and Adam now but it has been a long road. But that doesn’t stop Reza from (jokingly?) being an asshole. I can tell you that friends and family who constantly pick because they think they are being funny will drive that person away. No one wants to be constantly picked at. Reza is still harassing him for sex. I do like Reza’s to do list which is basically have sex and buy gold. I think that is an excellent plan for most anyone.
Here is the key to the photo above Clockwise from Reza: Reza, Shervin, GG, MJ’s date?. MJ, Maybe Adam? (he is BFF with Asa this season), and Mike.
The Shahs of Sunset are filming Season 5’s finale in Belize right now and I actually have a spy down there. I know! I can’t believe it either. She is trying to get more of the scoop for us! They have been there since at least Thursday. The photo above is from Guava Limb Cafe in Cayo, Belize. We know that Mike, Reza, Asa, MJ, Shervin and GG are all there (MJ is a blond now, GG has super black hair). I guessing that the guy to the right of Asa is Adam.
GET CAUGHT UP ON WHAT YOU MISSED LAST SEASON ON SHAHS OF SUNSET HERE!
In addition to the Guava Limb Café, the gang has been enjoying the Mayan Ruins and clubbing at Thirsty Thursday which is a local bar. Continue reading
It’s time for the last half of Shahs of Sunset Reunion. If you missed the first part you can get caught up here!
We pick up with Reza’s walk out where he goes outside because he is over heated. He is ready to be done. It almost sounds like they are forcing him to be mean to Mike, who her refers to as “the poor guy on the hotseat.” He says next you are going to bring Jessica out and we have to go through it all again! Let’s finish it! Indeed, Reza. Let’s finish it.
Oh we are going to talk about MJ and Charlie. I wonder if they will mention he was full of shit and dating someone else the whole time. MJ says she is not with Charlie anymore. He lied about his business (he doesn’t have one) and he cheated with a lot of different girls (again my sources say he had a serious girlfriend at the time who knew he was faking for the show.) GG is pissed at Charlie for taking advantage of MJ. Asa seems to be having a strange response. Possibly because MJ is not exactly telling the truth.
GG talks about Danny. Oh she is already seeing someone else and still sleeping with Danny. She’s a maneater.
Jessica is still texting the fuck out of Mike while he is on set.
Dumb Asisfa and Bobby stuff. Asifa is very dramatic. Bobby and Asifa are mostly broken up. Bobby thinks it is all Asifa’s fault. Tons of rehashing. Andy basically tries to force them to break up today. Asifa still hasn’t moved out. Everyone encourages her to move out. Continue reading
Pretty much all the Shahs blog this week are of the Q & A variety and for the most part everyone kept it short and sweet. Except for Asifa. And she came for MJ. Do you think this was warranted?
Bravotv.com: How were you feeling going into your first reunion?
Asifa Mirza: I was feeling very anxious and a little jittery. So much happened all season long and there was a tremendous amount of pent up anger on so many different ends. It was like a volcano waiting to erupt. I can confidently say it was an intense feeling for all, kind of like being on the Titanic right after hitting the iceberg. Who would feel comfortable walking onto a sinking boat?
Welcome to reality TV.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised MJ called you toxic?
AM: No, not at all. All season long I gave her the benefit of the doubt, notwithstanding the fact that I was warned by many (including close friends of hers) of her dubious, equivocal, deceitful, and dishonest ways. MJ is able to strategically manipulate others into believing she is an honest, altruistic person with your best interest at heart. I was most certainly fooled. She is the master of saying sweet nothings to your face and then bashing you behind you back, most times for unwarranted reasons.
I’m surprised at all the attacks on MJ. She is very sweet toward me. We interacted before the first episode of Shahs even aired. We still chat a bit on Twitter. I really didn’t believe that the conflicts with MJ and others were serious because MJ is so… flighty may not be exactly the right word, but as close as I can get. I really don’t believe there is genuine vitriol in MJ. But I suppose I could be wrong. Continue reading
First of all, I LOVE that the Shahs get to drink alcohol and eat at their reunions. If I was a bravoleb from another show I would be pissed as hell about that. Andy’s favorite, RHOBH, Lisa Vanderpump can’t even get a cup of tea on the break! How do they get away with this? My god this looks fabulous. Mike slept with GG’s sister the day he got engaged? I knew that some other women were supposed to come forward (“after the 9th episode) I just figured they opted to cut all that out. But now on the reunion Mike gets blindsided about sleeping with GG’s sister they day he proposed to Jessica? Reza walks off in a hissyfit? I cannot wait for all of this!
GG says she is most excited to see Mike and Jessica because “things are going to get fucked up!” MJ tells Reza that Asa would not say hi to her. I don’t believe that. Asa looks amazing (and tiny!!!) in sweats in her dressing room. She is also stunning in her gown!
Reza shaved his mustache in the trailer before the show. Andy starts with lots of old photos of the gang. Andy shows old photos GG and Mike trying to elicit some old feelings but it doesn’t work. Reza was HOT back in the day. Reza has lost almost 30 pounds. GG loves her new boobs. MJ had a breast lift. I can’t really tell. Everyone is denying butt implants. Asa and MJ get into it over MJ mocking Asa’s weight on the show (seasons ago, they are reaching for conflict between these two). They argue about the whole bachelor party situation. I am not interested in the fighting between MJ and Asa. Asa says MJ can be very two-faced. Asifa said the same. Continue reading
