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.
GG and her cousin Nima, (are there two Nimas? I thought she dated a Nima.) are going to jump on trampolines. Every since the camping trip GG really has looked better. She says she has been feeling better. Even Reza pointed it out last week. So GG and Nima jump around like maniacs in monkey suits on the trampolines, they seem to have them all to themselves.
Reza and Asa go to a tailor to get his suit for the wedding. Reza tells us that his ability to cheat on men without getting caught comes in handy when sneaking around planning a wedding. Try to wrap your mind around that statement. MJ arrives late and seeming a bit disheveled and out of it. Mercedeh is crying because….I guess because she thinks this whole surprise wedding thing is a dumb idea. And it is. She is also jealous that Asa knows all the plans and she was told all she has to do is show up.
The first night in Palm Springs they have a housewarming party as a cover for why everyone is there. The next night everyone will go to dinner and a wedding in cell block C.
At the “housewarming party” Adam accidentally knocks Reza’s drink all over him. Reza is highly irritated by this. Reza rented another house with a pool for the after dinner party because these fools do thinks like throw red velvet cake around thinking it’s cute. Reza is the worst offender, so he wants a rental house to tear up. What is it with the giant water fowl inflatables in California.
On the day of the wedding, Reza goes to a pawn shop to buy Adam’s ring. So scripted I can’t bear to type this stuff.
The dinner is in a real room that appears to be purple and has actual walls. It’s much nicer than the cell block room we saw before. Maybe that was just the room where they show the table setting options of something. Wait, no, I paused on Adam to type and it is totally cinderblocks behind him. So weird. Looks like the pretty purple walls are CGI and they didn’t do a great job at editing.
Whatever, they got married.
Next Week: Reza tries Improv. Jessica and Mike reunite. Neither goes well.
