It’s time for Shahs of Sunset and it is going to be more Rezacentric than usual. I’ve noticed fewer and fewer comments on this show lately. Are y’all still out there? I don’t think I can quit this one. I was too committed to it at the time I started this blog. I interviewed most of the cast (I was new and didn’t realize what a bad idea it was getting to know the Bravo crowd) and did tons of research and spoiling and I feel like this one I have to ride out. So get on the ride with me people!
Reza stops over to see Mike and give him some groceries and basically check up on him. Reza lectures Mike about staying out of the clubs and trying to work on his marriage. Mike really did try eventually to win Jessica back. But it was too late, she was already with some guy charged with rape, who is nicer to her than Mike was.
Later, Mike meets Jessica in a restaurant to talk over some still drinks. Mike tries to remind her of the good times. Jessica says that Mike is obsessed with money and thinks that “providing for her” means buying her stuff. In her talking head, she says they had “underlying trust issues” before the marriage. That’s as close as we will probably get to any mention of Mike’s cheating. After much awkward silence, Jessica leaves.
We are back on Shahs of Sunset for an intervention with Golnesa. While I am sure an intervention with GG, could be beneficial if she would listen (she won’t) no one ever did this with Mike Shouhed. In fact most of them will be drunk out of their minds at this “intervention.” I’m not really sure that is how they are supposed to work.
Sidenote: Welcome back if you have been trying to get on the site over the weekend and failed. I attempted to take some time off and the server decided to do the same since I was not hovering over it all the time. I am still not sure why it happened and there seems to be some things that are taking a bit of time to recover. So if you get a chance, hit some of the tags or categories below the posts and check out other pages. Have zero page views is going to mess up a lot of things and freak out my advertisers.
As they show how drunk and obnoxious almost all of them were last week, this whole script seems more ridiculous than usual. I don’t see how Asa deals with all of these people. Speaking of Asa, she is in the Winnie making some seafood while Reza grills outside. I remember years ago in one of my very first blogs about Asa talking about how she would go to the park in Germany as a kid and they would grill out. Some idiot tried to inform me that Iranians didn’t grill out. Which is ridiculous. Maybe I used the term BBQ which is what we call it in the south. That term to me means cooking meat outside over fire. It has nothing to do with a bottle of barbecue sauce. It’s pretty universal over most if not all cultures since the beginning of fire. Asa is cooking shrimp on aluminum foil. Never cook with aluminum pans or aluminum foil.

Tonight’s disclaimer about why this recap will suck is sponsored by well brand tequila. It is also my excuse for more typos than usual and my late start. I was gardening today and craved a margarita. I am NOT allowed to drink tequila it usually makes me cry. Tonight I had TWO margaritas. Now two drinks don’t phase me at all but two TEQUILA drinks make me all fuzzy headed and my shoulder blades hurt. I went to get dinner which I am no longer interested in and it’s in the fridge for tomorrow. I had a great time reading my book at the bar for the first one, but two was one too many.
So apologies for my lateness. And let’s do this. I admit part of my unusual desire for hard liquor was having to recap this crapfest tonight. I have no idea what is real anymore on this show.
Mike and Reza go to a cigar bar. I hate Reza even more because Xanadude hates him. It make me feel better about being disgusted by him. I respect Xanadude’s opinion. Even his polar opposite political ones. You can learn a lot from X. I’m just saying. (I warned you about the tequila).
I also make fun of Californians a lot. I am going to play the some of my favorite people are Californians. Including one cranky guy from San Francisco who is currently probably mad at me. But I have to mock them here once again because I just don’t get why they wear winter ski caps in LA. I get the whole bad hair day possibility but there have to be other hat options than winter wear. Anyway, this scene is about Mike crawling back to Reza. Whatever. I should point out that it hurts my heart a bit not to like Reza anymore. We had some great conversations online before season one aired.
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.
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.

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
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
