It’s time for the first Shah’s of Sunset reunion. I am going to this already disappointed with Reza and I imagine it will get worse. Andy asks GG why she referred to herself as “the Rosa Parks of reality TV.” GG once again claims she was misunderstood and was talking about the backlash that they got from the Persian community last season. The questions are just too stupid to recap so far.
We are going to start with Lilly. Seven minutes in and I am bored. Has Asa even been on camera yet? Lilly says she doesn’t gloat or brag. Lightning did not strike. Lilly uses her ex’s black Amex but she doesn’t need a man to take care of her because she owns her own businesses. Did that make sense to y’all? Also, how does some lawyer from Texas have a black Amex to begin with? I doubt his practice pulls in that kind of money. Lily seems to think that MJ is saying that Ali supports her so she has brought in documents to prove that she is rich. Her business made $72k in January. Um, okay. So after expenses…what is left? Oh Lord, now she is showing Andy her bills of sale for the cars she drove on the show. Andy points out that they are in Ali’s name. Essentially, Lilly came convince us that she has money, while at the same time being the first to take a swing at the MJ pinata. That’s classy. Andy says the Rolls Royce was $280K and Lilly says that she doesn’t need to brag about that. Andy rolls his eyes and says, “You brought the bill of sale!”
A viewer question for MJ: She seems to be medicated with slurred speech a lot of the time does MJ have a problem? MJ says she doesn’t have a problem, she doesn’t pop pills and the only time we see her drinking is when they are partying and socializing. Andy asks Asa about MJ’s drinking and Asa says that she apologized for bringing up MJ’s issues so publicly but that it is difficult to watch MJ being sedated all the time. That’s actually the THIRD bash of MJ because prior to this conversation Reza had to point out that MJ gets drunk and hits on Mike. sigh. Side note: Asa looks great tonight but not exactly like herself. Meanwhile, everyone except GG attacks MJ telling her she has a drinking problem. If she does, they could not have designed a worse plan for addressing it if they tried. Mike tries to come to the rescue by saying he has never seen her take pills but that she does drink a lot. I mean, Mike should know, didn’t he get so drunk in Cabo that he missed filming scenes? But then Reza comes in for bash number four to say, “I’ve known her for twenty years and the pills have always been there.” GG steps up to defend MJ saying that she (GG) takes Xanax and Klonopin and that is her business and everyone should stay out of MJ’s business. Frankly, if MJ went to any shrink in the world they would put her on anti-anxiety meds. Maybe she just doesn’t want to share her emotional health issues with the world. What is wrong with these people? Reza screams, “We care about her and we want her to get help!” Oh, bullshit, Reza. You have done nothing but demean and defame MJ all season. How is that helping someone who has emotional or drinking problems?
Reza’s mother is upset with Reza because of his sexual behavior on the show. If she understood English she would be upset with him for way more than that. Lilly didn’t tell her parents she was on the show until a week before it aired. He Dad is very upset about it.
Mike was supportive of MJ versus Lilly in their little tête-à-tête, It seems like Mike is supporting MJ and GG and taking their side to a degree while the other side (literally and figuratively have said absolutely nothing thus far except to attack MJ). Oh Lord, Lilly is such a little twat! I just can’t imagine anyone wanting to be around her.
After FIFTY SOLID MINUTES of MJ bashing, it’s time for Asa versus GG. GG is backtracking and throwing her sister under the bus. GG just referred to Asa as “that thing!” Asa is going with the whole nose insult was a compliment tactic still. This fight isn’t even interesting. Same old same old.
Next week, it looks like MORE Reza bashing MJ! Surprise, surprise, surprise.
Lilly versus MJ.
