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.
MJ is doing a sexy photo shoot for Charlie. Reza says that MJ looks like the “Persian” Anna Nicole. And he’s right. I need to know where MJ gets her lingerie. My lingerie shopping these days is basically finding a cheap bag of Hanes Her Way granny panties at Big Lots! .
MJ is getting ready to give Charlie a HUGE framed picture of her half-naked self. MJ is so unintentionally funny. I really hate seeing Charlie on TV after finding out he was just using our MJ. This scene feels so scripted. MJ is so much better than this guy. Charlie is so leading MJ on. Everytime she tells that scumbucket she loves him is response is something like, “likewise.” UGH this guy is such an asshat.
GG is looking for a Bollywood outfit with Asifa for Asifa’s Bollywood birthday party. They talk about the lie detector test. Asifa tells GG that her memory should not be trusted when she is drunk. GG is insulted by that. Um, hello?
GG is going to take another polygraph test. This time it is with “John” who has been on pretty much every show on TV. And you know he is really good because he is wearing a polo embroidered with the words “John, Polygraph expert.” GG “easily passed” the polygraph.
We all keep begging Asa for a cookbook so it is no surprise we are back in her kitchen. When I win a gajillion dollars in the lottery I am going to buy Asa to be my personal chef, life coach and BFF. I will pay her I gold bangles. Two gold bangles for me, one for Asa…three gold bangles for me, one for Asa.
Asa is doing a public live art piece about Muslim women and the veil. Her position is that it is choice for women to wear a veil. At the actual performance, there are women watching who are actually veiled. I wonder how they will feel about this? Will they find it disrespectful (which is not Asa’s intent) or liberating. Also, because I am not familiar with Beverly Hills, I question the validity of there being so many women in Muslim traditional attire on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
First of all this scene with Mike and Shervin was presented as “Shervin’s house” he is very clearly Mike’s replacement for next season at this point. If Jessica was marrying Mike for the fame of being on the show, there may be an issue. Secondly, there is no way Mike can afford that car unless Jessica’s family money paid for it.
Mike really wants to reconcile with the gang. He is taking some responsibility for his part. He wants to apologize to them at dinner.
At the dinner Mike is given firm marching orders by Jessica not to try to silence her. She is going to tell them all exactly how she feels. Mike reluctantly agrees because his goal is reconciliation. Mike tells Jessica that he would like to forgive and forget at some point. Jessica says, “And that is what is going to stop.” Who knew Mike was such a castrated male? Oh wait, we all did.
Asa arrives and is very polite. I love that Asa says she is hungry. 90% of reality people do not eat on camera. The Shahs do! MJ arrives and is also nice to Jessica at first. Then MJ says she is a bit hurt that they didn’t share their engagement with them. Asa asks what Jessica’s issue is with them. Mike and Adam walk in while Jessica is reaming out Asa. Mike and Jessica are pissed that everyone believes GG. MJ says that GG has passed a lie detector. Things just don’t go well at dinner. Mike is barely allowed to speak.
Next week: GG has a first date with a hot guy at a bowling alley. Asifa has a birthday party. MJ’s plans for Reza’s bachelor party disturb Adam (Is anyone else wondering about the edit of the bachelor parties that are supposedly happening before the wedding date is even set?)
