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
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
Another thing I refused to watch last night was Shah’s of Sunset “Lost Footage.” I tweeted Bravo that I wish they had lost all the footage from season two permanently. But today, I figure if I can get through Kenya Moore singing I can get through this. I predict more footage to make MJ look bad. Let’s see…We start with Lilly shopping and Reza following her around fawning all over her. Then on to MJ’s dating. She has a lot of things on her list. A lot. Like more than me. A lot. MJ and GG have a discussion about MJ’s possible autism. They are not even as educated on the subject as Jacqueline Laurita. MJ is an airhead. Not autistic. MJ forgets what she is talking about. I can relate.
There is was too much Lily in this episode. So now it is a scene from Villa Rica. This is not a lost scene. This is a scene we wish we had not seen the first time. Reza is telling the story about how he had sex with MJ. Asa says MJ arrived in a cloud of Chardonnay.
Funny lost scene where MJ’s dog ate the prosciutto off the platter and no one noticed. Stupid lost scene with Mike and Reza comparing gay sex to hetero sex. This is a waste of film. Lilly takes Asa for a cellulite treatment. Asa and her family attempt to run a food truck. Asa’s mother complains the whole time and criticizing everyone who is actually working. Continue reading

Well, it’s time for round two of bash MJ on the Shahs of Sunset Reunion. Mike is still working with Reza in residential real estate it seems. Asa is happy that she sold out the El Rey and had to turn people to away. Asa explains her diamond water and MJ points out that it is sort of out there. Lilly chimes in to start with the MJ bashing. Asa asks MJ how much money she made in real estate last year. Andy asks GG what she thinks about diamond water and she said she doesn’t think about it. Asa talks about the fact she has supported her parents since her early twenties. Asa works very hard. Lilly just keeps chiming in and trying to get into the arguments. Asa is laughing at GG’s extension business.
Reza is taking turns glaring at MJ and rolling his eyes toward Asa and Lilly. Reza swears that MJ has only sold one condo all year. Reza is making bizarre snoring noises. It’s just ridiculous. Time for relationship talk. Andy brings up GG’s engagement. GG says that Omid was young and out partying it up so they took it back a step. Andy says to GG that Omid didn’t seem that into you on the show. Andy is not going easy on GG and MJ. Andy says that he was “digitizing her under the table at the restaurant.” Really Andy? GG says that he didn’t go any further than her thigh. Mike says she should not make a mockery of a thing like marriage. He says that Omid (who he now calls “his boy’ by the way) has been out all over town with other women while they were engaged. They didn’t spend New Years together. Andy asks if she got a ring and she said yes. Mike said it came out of a Crackerjack box. Asa is laughing. Reza says it is a fake ring. Asa says GG made up a fake engagement for publicity. Lilly says that she knows someone who hooked up with Omid the night she announced her engagement. Asa says that she is still together with Jermaine and hopes they get married. I’ll spare you the discussion of Reza’s relationship with armpits. MJ says that she and Drizzy are back trying to rekindle their relationship after some time apart. Reza starts laughing like a hyena and says people are tweeting him pictures of Drizzy at gay clubs. He says it’s a fake boyfriend and that MJ got “double stuffed” by two Jewish cousins. Even Mike steps in to say that is below the belt. Continue reading
Sigh. It seems that Reza Farahan may have a new public relations person who has explained to him that constantly trying to eviscerate his “BFF of 20 years” all over national television with gleeful abandon might not be the best look for him. Yesterday, MJ, Mike and Reza went to lunch to work out their differences. I have to say, MJ is a better woman than me. After all the abuse Reza heaped on MJ I don’t think I would have been open to listening to anything he has to say. He should be on twitter apologizing publicly for his treatment of her. MJ hasn’t commented on her twitter feed.
