Shah of Sunset Recap: Aw, Phucket

Shahs Asa Reza


Finally, could it be we are going to get rid of this ridiculous storyline between Mike and GG?  I had heard that by now there would be multiple girls coming forward on the show. I guess that information was not accurate? We shall see. But for now, GG and Mike have agreed to luncheon.  Mike arrives dressed as Justin Beiber. This is not explained. Mike wants to know why if something made her uncomfortable why didn’t she just come to him. He has no memory of what happened. He says he was on pills and booze. Mike says that he is sorry for anything she says happened. GG finally gets the wording of the apology she wants. She says she thinks Mike really does know what he did. Oh wait, now GG doesn’t like the wording of the apology. GG says she is fine with parting ways with Mike. In Mike’s talking head, he says, “So what if I did try to have sex with her? So what? Let’s move on!”  But those are heavily lead by production and not to be taken seriously.

We are sticking to the stupid storyline that Asa and MJ are feuding. I believe that to be completely contrived by production. I can’t stand watching these people pack. They are just ridiculous. Asifa wants to take advantage of the paid for wedding and get married in Thailand. This causes a fight before they can even get out the door. The fighting continues on the plane.  I have no desire to take any flights over 9 hours. I just can’t imagine it. Apparently Bobby and Asifa fought the whole way. Continue reading

Shahs of Sunset Recap: Bubbles of Fertility

Shahs of Sunset - Season 4

For some ungodly reason this show was 76 minutes long last night, which fucked up the schedule for everything on Bravo all night, causing me not to be abled to recap in real time. Good Job, Bravo.

We start with Reza at his flip property. Reza says since Asa did her pop priestess thing on the house, all his problems are gone and everything is working perfectly. Why isn’t Asa mad at Reza for not inviting her to his perverted bachelor party?

Reza goes with MJ to a fertility doctor.  MJ lies to the doctor about age despite going to high school with the doctor. I think it would be weird have a GYN you went to high school with. Even weirder is the fact that Reza is in the room during the exam. He’s actually on the business end of the situation while she was getting wanded.  The doctor says her ovaries are full of fertility bubbles and she is good to go. Now she just has to try to get laid. Oh and wait on the blood test results.

Asa has completely redone her parents house. It’s really pretty. Her parents love it. Continue reading

Shahs of Sunset Recap: A Tale of Two Parties

Shahs of Sunset Bravo

Reza and Adam

We begin tonight’s Shahs of Sunset with Reza and Adam getting a marriage license. How do destination weddings work? I thought you had to file in the country where you get married. How will an LA wedding license work in Thailand? Are they going to legally marry at the courthouse before or after the trip?  I wonder how the applications would be now that gay marriage is relatively new and government paperwork takes so long to catch up. Adam asks Reza if he is the bride or the groom. Then he asks if he wants to take Reza’s name he has to do it now?  Reza is freaking out and sucking on an inhaler.  Adam is talking about having kids. Reza is threatening to bolt.


MJ and Asa are at an exercise class. Asa wants to get in shape for bikinis in Thailand and MJ wants an opportunity to dress up like Olivia Newton John in public which of course would be incomplete without wearing support hose. Asa is having a serious conversation about the joint bachelor party they are supposed to be planning. But MJ is more concerned with her outfit. She could care less about this party because she is planning a sleazeball party for Reza and not telling Asa about. This season MJ and Asa were clearly told to fight over Reza. MJ is being a good little production soldier while Asa is just responding in kind because it’s her job.  Asa is planning a safari chic party with strippers with animal tails. Her party is at a vineyard/animal safari. Because those are clearly everywhere in California. Continue reading

Shahs of Sunset Recap: A First Date and A Funeral

Shahs of Sunset - Season 4


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

Shah of Sunset Recap: Can’t Fake The Funk

Shahs of Sunset Bravo

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

Shahs of Sunset Recap: An Inconclusive Truth

Shahs GG lie detector

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.

Shahs of Sunset Recap: Crunch v. Munch

Shahs mike and jessica engaged.

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

Shahs of Sunset Recap: Reddi Wip and Pussy Whipped



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

Shahs of Sunset Recap: It’s Nuclear Now

SHahs Stay Cation


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

Exclusive: Jessica Parido Forges Ahead With Plans to Marry Mike Shouhed Tomorrow

Shahs mike and jessica engaged.

This is exclusively sourced. Please attribute quotes according and provide a link to this page. Thanks!


I keep waiting to do this story because part of me wants Jessica Parido come to her senses. It seems that if she ever does come to her senses she is going to do it much too late. It’s already too late for her face. The poor girl who used to be a natural beauty is now just another plastic-faced girl in Beverly Hills. Another sad story. Another fake relationship. What could possibly be going on with this girl where she would change everything about herself, her face, her religious beliefs, he morals to be with a man who is superficial even by Los Angeles standards. A man who describes his engagement by noting that it involved a four carat diamond ring and her saying she was going to be his wife so “it worked out perfectly.” A plan well executed. The superficial groom and Jessica were in Australia a couple months ago where Mike’s comments included a comment that there are no ugly people in Australia and that Jessica can’t keep her hands off of him. Clearly, Mike is not closer to having any sort of personal insight and growth that most global travelers experience in new cultures than he was in Turkey where the call to prayer transmitting from the mosque had quiet the opposite reaction on Mike as most travelers regardless of religion. Tomorrow, Jessica Parido will become Jessica Shouhed assuming everything goes according to the plan.

Last July, I began to get a number of tips and contacts with very detailed information on Mike Shouhed cheating with women that he met on social media. There were specific hotels mentioned. Hotel staff confirmations. Text messages. It all appeared to be very legit. This was problematic. Shahs of Sunset was one of the first shows I was really excited about when I began this blog. I learned a big lesson by interviewing them prior to the show airing and finding them all charming. It’s best not to get too close to your subject. Especially if they are on a reality TV show you are covering. Because they change (Reza) and it becomes difficult to point out the bad behavior when you like the people doing the bad behavior. And they are all bound to do something that needs calling out. But this wasn’t the same as one of your favorite housewives changing and becoming someone who airs their tampon string in public and becomes violent and generally unlikable in public. This was someone allegedly having numerous sexual encounters with women who are not his fiancé.  I did not want to be this messenger. I sat on it for a while and I put out some feelers to sources in production. The show was expected to air last October until a post production editing staff decided to strike for health benefits which would ultimately push the show to its new 2015 airdate. It was made clear to me that Mike’s indiscretions would be a major storyline. It would be public. Everyone was about to know. Continue reading

Watch What Happens Live With Mike Shouhed and Brandi Glanville

WWHL Mike and Brandi

I don’t understand why Brandi is there. They could have had someone from Southern Charm.  Or anyone else on the planet for that matter. Oh Andy says it’s because the RHOBH finale is tomorrow. Andy asks Brandi if she has ever met Mike. She replies that Mike just tried to have sex with her in the back. Mike says, “Believe me, you and Golnesa would say yes.”  Frankly, I’m surprised Brandi has not already offered. But we are only 30 seconds in. Brandi says she watched all the Shah’s shows on the plane over.

Andy asks her about the mask she Tweeted herself wearing on the plane and she acted like she did not want to discuss it because she was not being paid. #SMH She seems to think she is Oprah Winfrey or someone.  So I googled and it’s an “illumask” a $30 product from Ulta Beauty Supply that is a light therapy treatment for acne and acne scars. When Andy asks if it does something to your skin, she says, “Yes, it’s for helping you sleep!”  Oh Brandi. You have never been a good liar.

Brandi has new hair. It’s longer and less hay like. During the first game Brandi points out that she thinks Kenya and Apollo worked together on that whole storyline about them trying to get with each other. She bases this on the fact that Apollo is just too dumb.  Well, she’s right about that part at least.

Andy is being nice to Brandi. #cuts

Andy plays a clip from the reunion where he says to Brandi, ” Sometimes you are playing and you just take it a step too far.”  Brandi responds with “No, that’s bullshit. I’ve taken enough abuse since I have been here, I’m not taking it from you too.”  Andy says that Brandi was really pissed at him over that comment.  Um, really? That was your super mean girl move with Brandi, Andrew? That has been said by pretty much every sane person who watches the show for several seasons now.  Oh God.  Brandi says  she leaves the reunion feeling vindicated. I am starting to want to cut. I’ve never been a cutter before, but this seems like a good time to start because YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!  This is like when my ex tells me he is going to get counseling for his anger problems toward all the multitudes of women in his life (including a wife, btw) and he swears the therapist told him he was too selfless and needed to be more concerned with his own happiness and should try and find a new girl friend (to add to the list?). One can only hope that both Brandi and the ex are equally delusional about what happened at the reunion, and individual therapy respectively. Continue reading

Shahs of Sunset Recap: The Secret Is Out (About Adam?)

Shahs Season 4


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
