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.
Ew. It’s Lilly. Lilly is turning 30 and “her friend” Mohammed is hosting the party. MJ has not RSVPed, allegedly. Annnnnd here we go with the MJ bashing. Reza is giving lip service to being her friend and trying to keep drama from happening. Allegedly. I am fantasizing about dunking Lilly’s huge head in the ocean. Repeatedly.
GG and her sister are friendlier. Her sister is going through a divorce and she has a very young child. The kid has a pediatrician that makes housecalls on TV. I am noticing GG’s gold bangles and it makes me sad I have to sell mine. 🙁
Finally, we see A$A! And she is with family. I love those scenes. And Reza is there because he has to be in everything possible. I am DYING at the Persian food. Yum. Asa introduces her cousin to Reza and he says “welcome” as if it is his household. I can’t with him already. DAMN at Asa’s bangles. Sorry it is a middle-eastern thing. I was raised in Libya and my family adopted many traditions including gold and silver bangles. Sadly, it is time for this chick to sell the gold and go back to silver. So I am a little obsessed and envious at the moment.
MJ greets GG at her door wearing a “Thug Life” t-shirt. This is after a talking head where GG says she is ready to be a grown-up. #foreshadowing MJ is single and her dogs are fat. GG is helping MJ clean out her closet. I would like to be at her garage sale. MJ is reluctantly going to Lilly’s party which is going to end in drama. Already the show is focusing on MJ’s drinking even thought GG is drinking with her. I don’t know if she has a problem or not, but either way, Bravo’s exploitation of her is unacceptable.
Jessica has converted to Judaism for Mike. They go to some sort of social event for couples with one partner converting. Some 75 year old man got circumcised to complete the process. Kidding not. Some single black guy is there on the prowl for a Jewish woman. Jessica has NO RING and is not engaged! Gurrrrrrl. Be careful.
Reza shows up with roses and gifts. I love MJ’s response. Flowers only come from one place. Guilty men. I am telling you. Having your best gay fuck you over is WAY worse than having a boyfriend do the same. It’s a whole nuther level of a relationship. Reza is there to tell MJ that since she didn’t RSVP she may not be allowed in to the party for Lilly. Of course Lilly could just add MJ to the damn list. It’s not like this is some celebrity event people will be trying to crash, but let’s play along. MJ actually says, “You are worried about humiliating me NOW?” And Reza is all, yes! Oh douchebag, you have done nothing but publically disgrace her and now we are supposed to pretend you care because you brought over roses and a cheesecake or whatever? Chile, please. MJ texts Lilly about going to dinner. Lilly tells her she can’t go because all seats are accounted for.
In Bravo mean edit fashion, We see how fugly Lilly is without makeup prior to her “glam squad” hiding her real face behind two TONS of makeup and hair. Priceless.
So it’s time of Lilly’s party with all of her nearest and dearest fake friends. It’s like a presser for some plastic surgeon. Bleck. Her nutso dog is wearing a dress to match her “first look.” She plans to change FOUR TIMES during her party. Jesus. These poor people. They have no idea how to party. Reza takes Adam to the party but does a whole talking head about another guy. Supposedly they move in together this season. Sigh. No, Adam. Just no. Has he no faghag to tell him he is making a big mistake?
Did I mention that dateless Lilly is having a “prom” after dinner because no one asked her in High School? She is having people vote for Prom Queen because she thinks she should have been one in High School but she had not had the surgeries yet, and she was raised in Texas and Texas don’t play that. In fact it looks like she had MORE plastic added to her face for the new season. #plasticpersian At least everyone is mocking Lilly and missing MJ. GG apologizes to Asa and it seems genuine.
OMG. I love that everyone is wanting MJ there, but for Reza to blame Lilly for AND I QUOTE, “alienating my best friend?????” What the Mother Fuck? I have never in the history of reality TV seen someone deliberately try to harm another the way that Reza did MJ. EVER. He was a brutal asshole.
There was no extended trailer on the disk. But I think I cover pretty much everything.
