I wish I had friends that buy champagne and lay out great spreads with fresh cut flowers for me to drop by to discuss bad dinner parties from the night before. This time it is Reza hosting Asa to discuss Jessica. I’m team Asa, always. MJ arrives and everyone agrees that Mike is guilty. Okay, fine. But really? They have been pushing this “dramatic” storyline for so long take I was expecting a rape arrest or a sex tape or both. Not some high school story about “he tried to come on to me.” Hell, guys try to come on to girls everyday. Even me and I am the poster child for “Letting Yourself Go.” It is what guys do. As a wise woman once said, “I can get dick on the way to my mailbox.” But please discuss this amongst the three of you and pick a side. Reza has decided not to invite Mike to the wedding. I assume this means that Jessica didn’t want to go to Thailand.
GG and MJ are off to talk to a taxidermist about her dead dog. This cannot be real. There are 100s of dead stuffed animals in his little business. GG asks if they were all alive before. The cat is terrifying. They explain to MJ that they really just skin the dog and throw the guts away and wrap the fur around a base. I am going to zip through this now. Banjo does not need to hear this. He is already made because we are out of wet dog food.
Mike and Jessica go out to dinner. Jessica informs Mike of their two year timeline. Married by December, pregnant by June. Then the topic moves on to dinner with the others. Jessica is not open to discussing it. Continue reading
I am trying to tear myself away from the live coverage of the Baltimore riots to watch and recap this. We can discuss the Baltimore riots here. I really need to get at least the Shahs of Sunset recap up, but I am going to wait on Southern Charm and WWHL when I am not so preoccupied. This may take a bit longer than usual as I may have to peek at the news. Please post your news comments in the Daily Tea thread for today rather than here.
Reza and Adam are talking about Reza’s wedding diet. Reza has lost 10 pounds in two weeks. Reza and Adam agree on getting married in Thailand. Because who doesn’t want a paid for wedding by Bravo in Thailand. Reza is not sure he wants to invite Mike and Jessica to the wedding. Reza does not like Jessica. Mike is having a reconciliation dinner, which may or may not include GG. Because dinners are always a calm happy event on Bravo shows. Continue reading
Welp! Nothing like putting a spoiler right in the title. That’s genius right there, Ryan Seacrest Productions. If you have missed any Shahs of Sunset episodes, you can get caught up here.
MJ, Reza and Asa get together to eat and talk about a wedding diet. Asa says she doesn’t diet. Reza wants to lose weight before the wedding. MJ and Asa are not particularly on board. Asifa calls to invite everyone to a Bollywood party. MJ takes a dig at Asa’s weight.
Asifa and Bobby
Are these two full-time cast members? Are we really interested in watching them wash a dog? I wish I had a shower like that to wash Banjo in.
Asifa’s family is practicing Muslim. I believe it must be Ramadan. At any rate her family members are over to break their fast. Asifa does not practice religion at all.
Mike and Jessica
We start tonight’s episode of Shahs of Sunset with the happy couple, Mike and Jessica going to a Brazilian restaurant with Shervin. There, Jessica happily shows off her engagement ring. It seems she has managed to stop crying long enough to sit at a table and watch other people eat.
Shervin and Mike are talking about the blowup with GG. Mike says he is waiting for things to blow over. He has been friends with the others for to long not to try to mend it. Shervin says your decision is your decision. Whatever that means But, Jessica pipes up with, “mend it? No.” It seems in true Mike fashion they just ignore Jessica’s comment.
This meal seems like Mike and Shervin are on a date and Jessica is the annoying little sister who for some reason showed up uninvited. Shervin and Mike have a stupid eating contest. Continue reading
We return to Shahs of Sunset the morning after GG made her startling accusations to Mike. Poor Mike. You know what I like the morning after a bender? I like to be woken up by a film crew and recounting how I was accused of some sort of sexual misconduct with my spouse. Oh wait. No one likes that. I don’t believe this was “the next morning.” But that is the storyline so let’s pretend.
Jessica is pouting on the neatly made bed. Jessica says she is mortified by what happened. Mike is managing to use GG as the mutual enemy. We are two minutes in and the term “pinky swear” is used. Jessica screams at him for being friends with all of them. Jessica hates everyone. Yet they all get invited to the wedding except for GG. Jessica tells Mike he is not allowed to defend himself to any of his friends. She totally wears the pants in this relationship. Continue reading
Reza’s apartment flip is not going along on schedule. When he arrives to the work site, there is no one there doing demo. He calls his contractor and is calmly asking why no one is there working. He seems to not get on the contractor at all.
Asifa has taken over the role of GG’s wife. GG is having trouble finding a good man. She tells Asifa she was in a relationship for three and a half years and for three of the years he had another girlfriend. I’m surprised that GG did not kill him. For real.
I am so confused by these two Iranian guys that Asa appears to have sold a house to. Are they brothers? Lovers? What? Apparently, their main function this episode is to provide the house for a pool party. And to bathe in a tub filled with fire hot Cheetos. Continue reading
