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
Based on the title I am going to assume that Mike gets confronted about his drunken encounter with GG in Turkey. While I suppose that is necessary for the good of the group working through things, it would seem that there is a much larger situation going on with Mike that occurs frequently in LA during the time this was being filmed.
Reza and GG go to a really cute interior design place. It has a lot of really funky stuff. I need to find someplace like this in Atlanta. I am having the hardest time finding a new couch I want. I am seriously considered having the one I have now fixed somehow. all it really needs is to put some new stuffing in the side my fat ass sits on every day and the leather to be cleaned. Reza has decided that GG is his little sister for this season. How convenient.
All of Mike’s real estate things in the past have been bullshit. I assume this is too. If it is not that is even more embarrassing.
These scenes of MJ cooking and being happy in her new relationship make me sad. We have already found out that Charlie was full of shit and fucking other people at the same time.
Reza is and Asa drop by to discuss Adam’s 30th birthday. Seriously? He’s only 30? I know in gay years that is ancient, but still. The story line this year is for MJ and Asa to fight over who is better friends with Reza. This is a ridiculous storyline. MJ certainly puts up with more of Reza’s shit and has been friends with him the longest. Asa doesn’t care. She likes everyone fine but she is so not a vie for the gay best friend’s attention type. She’s no very convincing about pretending to in her talking heads either. WHY CAN’T THE RELATIONSHIP DYNAMICS JUST BE WHAT THEY ARE WITH THESE PEOPLE? With the except of the new one, they all know each other. They are Iranian. They don’t need any help having passionate relationships amongst themselves. Continue reading
Shahs of Sunset Season 4
We pick up with Jessica gone and everyone throwing on a swim suit and getting in the pool and getting drunk. I hope those cups are plastic. Everything is going along great. With Jessica gone, Mike is a whole new person, or perhaps the old Mike, once Jessica was sent home.
Reza is having worse hair issues than Nene Leakes this season. It’s really bad.
I love that they have a bartender and a cook. Asifa doesn’t like Iranian food. Asa doesn’t like chicken liver. I LOVE chicken liver. I also love Iranian/Middle Eastern food. Mike tells his arch-enemy Bobby and Asifa and Shervin about his proposal plan. That should go well.
MJ and Jefferson talk about the competing bachelor parties. They are in charge of Reza’s MJ wants to get Reza laid.
Asifa manages to insult the other Bobby, not her Bobby and when he smarts off back to her Asifa and her Bobby start acting like assholes. Asifa’s Bobby is going to get his ass beat. Asifa started all the shit and now Bobby is somehow racist because he referred to Asifa as some Indian girl. WTF? Reza and Asa are on the wrong side of this argument. I predict they will realize what cunt buckets Asifa and Bobby are as filming goes on. They seem to always pick the wrong pony early on in the season. Asifa is such a little whiner. Continue reading
Mike and Jessica
Well it seems they are wasting no time in dealing with the Mike situation. It seems like it will begin with GG’s allegations but these are just the tip of the rumor iceberg. It’s seems Mike’s reputation took a beating during this filming.
I am not even trying to be cute when I say I do not recognize this Jessica. Nothing about her is familiar to me, not her face, not her voice, not her new bitchy ‘tude with the cussing. None of it. Where is holy Jessica who is becoming Jewish to please her man and who is docile and obedient? Was all of last season a dream sequence?
Mike thinks that everyone in the group is obsessed with his penis. This is because Mike himself thinks his penis is the center of the universe.
Jessica completes her final step to becoming a Jew by baptizing herself in the ocean. How is this achieved by Jewish converts in the desert? Jessica was very emotional and Mike came out at the end running toward her with beautiful flowers. It was rather sweet, actually. Continue reading
Shahs of Sunset Season 4
I just realized how much I’ve missed this show. I hate that the production strike delayed things so long because this season is supposed to be super good and filled with drama! Perhaps the wait will give the presumed bride to be a bit of time to reconsider her decision? I mean take a page from Reza and his fiancé who are not in a hurry to marry.
Reza and Asa are going gold shopping. I am not sure where this store is, but I want to find it. Reza is buying a Rolex and he will get a better deal than what they are saying on air for promotional consideration (there is more of that on this show than any other) still. I am surprised those watches are only $35K.
Anyway, this is all to say that Asa parents are moving in with her while she has their house renovated. And Reza’s man’s parents are coming to town or something. Sorry. I was distracted by the gold.
Mike drops by his parents with chocolates and champagne shows them the engagement ring he bought for Jessica. Continue reading
I am so excited to finally see Shahs of Sunset back on the Bravo Schedule. You may recall that Shahs was supposed to return back in October. Unfortunately, the post-production editors at Ryan Seacrest Productions went out on strike trying to get benefits and like health insurance and sick days like their non-reality counterparts receive. I don’t know if they were finally successful or if Bravo just hired different editors but the show is now set to premiere March 2nd at 9 pm. I cannot wait. I have so much tea on this show and it’s going to be the best season ever.
First, here is the official Bravo Press release on the show:
This season finds much of the cast in love with success abounding, but when a scandalous accusation shakes the crew, their lifelong friendships may be changed forever. As the group navigates the most tumultuous year of their lives, it is on a trip to Thailand where they start to understand that their real wealth is each other. Continue reading
Shahs of Sunset Season 4
NEW YORK – September 9, 2014 – Bravo Media gears up for #SHAHctober when “Shahs of Sunset” returns with season four on Monday, October 13 at 9pm ET/PT. This season finds much of the cast in love with success abounding, but when a scandalous accusation shakes the crew, their lifelong friendships may be changed forever. As the group navigates the most tumultuous year of their lives, it is on a trip to Thailand where they start to understand that their real wealth is each other.
Reza is newly engaged and planning a wedding with fiancé Adam, but with the impending nuptials he starts to wonder if he is ready for a lifelong commitment. Asa is helping to fund a home renovation for her parents, but as she struggles to deal with them temporarily moving in, she finds solace in a new art project that reaches oppressed women everywhere. Mike is getting over his fears of commitment and as his girlfriend, Jessica, completes her conversion to Judaism, he prepares to take the plunge and finally propose. Perpetually single, MJ, may have found Mr. Right with new boyfriend, Charlie, but as she braces him to meet her super protective group of friends and worse yet, her mom Vida, questions about her own ability to start a family arise. GG is taking a break from men after she split with her boyfriend two days before they were supposed to move in together. She starts spending more time with her friend of ten years, spitfire Asifa, but it is only a temporary distraction before she gets back into the man game. Continue reading
Bravolebrities turned out to celebrate Scheana Marie’s marriage to longtime boyfriend Mike Shay, yesterday. Gretchen Rossi, Joyce Giraud and Golnesa Gharachedaghi arrived dressed to impress. But Slade needs a haircut and a shave. And yes, you can expect to see it on Vanderpump Rules. Continue reading
As much as I like these ridiculous Bravo shows, they always seem to just drag on forever. For the first time in the history of Bravo, the Shahs finale seemed like a nice happy ending. All of the storylines were wrapped up. Everyone pretended to kiss and make up. That should have been the end.
But, no. We are still driving the hilariously stupid gold them into the ground with a reunion at a dinner table. Let’s see if some dumps a plate of tahdig on anyone in this episode.
Andy asks Reza what the hell he was thinking screaming the word faggot at people in a gay club. He says that the guy was talking about Iran like it was Club Med. Um, flashback to 80’s resorts with rampant STDs. Plus the guy was not doing that at all. He talked about missing his family and not being able to see them. Now MJ is joining in to defend Reza and both are saying that FOB is perfectly fine. As far as I am concerned it is perfectly fine if your intent is to insult someone, it’s as good an insult as any. What is not perfectly fine is the two of them acting as if it is a term of endearment. They are both delusional. Just say, “I didn’t like the guy, I called him an FOB, and it’s really not that big of a deal!” But no. That can never happen. Reza and MJ both just seem to try to look like assholes. Reza seems to get it after the tenth question that he needs to apologize and shut up. Continue reading
OMG today has been A DAMN DAY! I was just finally having fun with my commenters and now I have to recap. I mean I love Shahs of Sunset but damn there is so much fun drama on my blog. Anyway. I am here and a bit tipsy so this blog should be good but error filled. So the typo police are welcome to go fuck themselves now.
I am so not happy that this reunion is going to be a blood bath. The season has such a happy ending. I am VERY impressed with my Andrew for using a bit of Farsi. He still tickles my heart no matter how shady he gets, which is why I was so upset with a commenter today for mean tweeting him and attaching my name. Please know that much like TMZ says about loving Hollywood but having a weird way of showing it that is how I feel about the Bravolebrities and I NEVER want any of my blogs sent to them directly.
Everyone looks amazing tonight. Asa and GG are particularly stunning. Andy has put on quite the Persian feast for everyone. I love it! OOOOH a yellow diamond headpiece on Asa. Andy starts with happiness, Reza is engaged ! I thought it was the most pathetic engagement ever, but let me try to be nice about this. Continue reading
It time once again for the season finale of Shahs of Sunset. Can you believe it has been three seasons already. We’ve loved them and hated them and loved them again and then totally despised them and now it’s time to part ways once again and wait to see what their season four personalities will be. My greatest hope for season four is that they get rid of the stupid theme song and use Asa’s song, Terangeles instead. But for now it is time to tie up all the lose ends.
First Reza and Mike head to the gym for the incredibly scripted make up scene. Reza goes to train with a gold chain around his neck. On the outside of his tee shirt. They work out for five minutes and then Reza starts the conversation by saying that he feels very distant from Mike and it hurts him. Mike says he is hurt that Reza didn’t give him 100% of his help. Reza says absolutely he did not. For some reason, Mike feels like he is partners with Reza and he should be getting a percentage of his sales. Well that would be awesome if that is the way it worked. But that is an obscene idea. You don’t just decide to partner up with someone and take a percentage of their commissions while you do nothing. All Reza owed Mike if he owed him anything was to give him some pointers. Perhaps some good neighborhoods to canvas. for listings. Let him do some open houses for Reza where he might meet some potential buyers. Tell him to go to all the Persian things his rich Persian friends do pass out as many business cards and shake as many hands as possible. Have his brothers and parents pimp him out. DO SOMETHING other than whining about what Reza is not doing for him. Reza explains that successful agents who take the time to mentor newbies receive a percentage of their commission for teaching them, not the other way around. Reza is right. Mike doesn’t want to pay his dues. Mike says he is going back to commercial real estate, as if he ever left commercial real estate. They hug it out. Continue reading
I am really looking forward to this episode. Due to all sorts things last night I was not able to watch until this morning. I am excited to see the sights of Turkey and….oh wait. That is not what we are getting. We get a scene with Reza and GG inserting anti nausea suppositories up their asses. Seriously, Ryan Seacrest Productions? You were doing so well.
Next, Asa tells Reza that there is a border town in Turkey where they can go and see Iran. Seriously? It’s shocking news that Turkey borders Iran? She just found this information out from a waiter? When I heard they were going to Turkey I fully expected them to be filming the entire episode at the border town. Not in the European city of Istanbul. Sigh. Maybe the breaking news is they have planes in Turkey that take you to other cities? I don’t get it. I must be cranky today because quite frankly this is the 37th thing I have found irritating and annoying since I got up a couple hours ago. I’m going to take a deep breath and consider suspend disbelief about people from Iran not knowing the border countries of their homeland or knowing that air travel exists. EXCEPT! Reza just said in his talking head “I didn’t know it was a possibility to go to the border of Iran. You can go “look at Iran” pretty much anywhere on the border and there is a huge border crossing at Dogubayazit into the Iranian town of Bazargan there are also two smaller crossing points that are much easier to navigate on foot. What am I even talking about this for, Reza probably could not find Iran on a map, with labels. Continue reading
