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.
Asa and Reza
Asa and Reza hang out by Asa’s pool. Asa has a super cool, very nice house in Venice. In case you missed it I interviewed Asa back in 2012. I am still in love with that bathtub with the silver claw feet! You might Also enjoy this story about Reza back before he lost himself in all the fame surrounding Shahs of Sunset. Reza is having second thoughts about marrying Adam. He says that Adam is not as sexual as he would like. Reza says his Dad is a sex addict and he always hears his father’s voice saying don’t settle down. Asa says that going through with the marriage and getting divorced in a year, or cheating on Adam would be worse than backing out all together.
World of Leggings
So Mercedeh (see her Pre-Shahs interview here) is planning a game of group dodgeball for the clan. If that was not already a REALLY bad idea, apparently she has decided that dodgeball requires special leggings for everyone involved. Because, Mercedeh. So she and Shervin (who is getting a lot of air time this season) go off to meet Asa and Asifa to select the leggings. The do this at a leggings store. What the fuck? There are leggings stores? We are not on Rodeo anymore, y’all. No mam. We are at World of Leggings. I kid you not. Sadly, they do not have “meggings” which is apparently leggings for
gay men, but the associate point out that if men wear them backwards, they will have more room for their junk. Again, this is really happening on my television.
The script this season insists that Asa and Mercedeh are at odds so we begin that story arc at the cash register where MJ seems to be feeling a bit on the outside of this foursome so she goes after Asa. Asa had expressed some issues with the loud leggings that MJ selected for everyone, male and female to wear, but she had relented and taken them all to the counter. MJ wasn’t done being upset yet and when Asifa decided to stick her stupid nose in the middle and call MJ an instigator, MJ was like “Peace Out” and left the store.
MJ comes back and continues her tiff with Asa. Asa says that MJ is always being shady. MJ wants examples. Asa says trying to have both bachelor parties on the same night in different cities so that she could not go to Reza’s party is a bitch move. MJ deflects. Asa says that MJ can throw shade all day, but she can’t take any. I love how the Shahs are saying “throwing shade” now. I blame the RHOA. Or me. It’s probably both. Anyway, MJ doesn’t want the fugly leggings anymore
Asa and Her Parents
Asa’s parents continue to live with her as she has their home renovated. Asa come down for breakfast in one of her kaftans to find her mother cooking breakfast. Apparently her mother’s cat has peed on one of her rugs. There is enough food for 20 people. Asa’s family is adorable. Asa has on no makeup but her eyebrow are black as night. Do you think she penciled them in really quick on the way down for breakfast?
Time to check in on GG. MJ drops in for a visit. GG looks very thin. GG needs to find a man, according to MJ. MJ makes her sign up on Tindr. MJ grabs the phone and starts selecting idiots for GG. Hilarity ensues.
Reza and Adam
Reza sits Adam down to discuss a prenup. Reza wants one. Adam agrees. Reza throws out there that they don’t even have to get legally married, they can just say they are married if they want to. Oh, interesting. Adam asks Reza if he is sure about their relationship. Reza says they need to do something to spice up their sex life. He feels like they are two roommates. Adam says Reza is gone all the time. Really? Where does he go? Then Reza goes to his trademark racism and explains to Adam that white people are not as passionate as ethnic people. Reza says that Adam’s only pickup line is “I’m going to get a shower, followed by a wink.” Adam says Reza’s is “Suck it.” Reza says his is way hotter. I say I don’t need these visuals.
Asa and Mike meet for pizza. Asa is hurt that she found out about Mike’s engagement through Instagram. Mike is hurt that no one stood up for him. In Asa’s talking head she says the purpose of the lunch is to see if Mike will own up to anything related to GG’s ambiguous allegations to try to get a sense of the truth. Asa apologizes for the way things went down. Mike says it’s all a goddamn lie. Asa says that she thinks the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Mike says it is all a lie. Asa asks GG if they were even in the same room alone in Turkey. He says he doesn’t remember. Asa says she is getting an evasive sort of vibe from Mike. He won’t give her straight answers.
MJ and GG
MJ and GG go to a bar to try to find a man for GG it went exactly as you might think.
Everyone does end up in the hideous leggings in the end. Though Reza wears his as a mask and as sleeves. MJ is stunned by the seriousness of the game when they watch another group play. Someone could get hurt. They are playing with strangers who know how to play. The team names are much and crunch. Asa and MJ are captains. Asa is really good at this game. She also clocked a random check in the face. Somehow MJ’s team wins anyway.
After the game, MJ apologizes to Asa, who graciously accepts. But Asa remains suspicious of MJ’s motives. This is an awfully dramatic apology for a tiff over leggings. Almost immediately they are back to square one.
