We begin part two with a break so that MJ can stop crying about her crumbling friendship with Asa. Mercedeh is very offended that Asa thinks she is trash talking her business. Mike tries to tell Mercedeh that she will regret the things she said to Asa. MJ is not hearing it. She says she is through with her.
We return to the set and Andy points out that Mike has some new hairbrained scheme every season. We get a package on Mike’s “shoe line.” Andy points out that Kitson went bankrupt a few weeks after the shoe party. Mike claims he sold them 2,000 pairs of shoes. That seems like a ridiculous number of shoes for one store. If you go in any shoe store you’d be hard pressed to find more than a dozen pairs of the same shoe. Mike says you can buy his shoes on his website. However, someone linked me to the sight a week or so ago and there was nothing there but a not that says “Shoes coming soon!” If he has two thousand pairs of shoes what is he waiting for? Then Andy makes fun of Mike’s instagram. It really is ridiculous.
Asa on the other hand was offered a deal for he kaftans to be sold in selected Nordstorm stores for a trial run. Her diamond water business has expanded and they provide the water for the restaurant in the Four Seasons Dubai. #Winning
Reza is going to do some sort of a play where he will be cross dressing as the Iranian Medea. Seriously?
Andy sets up a segment for people to rag on Asa about keeping her relationship private. It’s called being smart and not putting your partner’s business on a reality TV show. Asa says while she keeps her love life private, there are a lot of people on the show who put fake storylines. For example, none of them actually work in real estate anymore. MJ swears she closed properties during filming and those scenes never made it to TV. Asa says that MJ doesn’t make her money as a real estate agent, she makes her money from the show. Actually, they all do except for Asa who has two successful businesses now to fall back on when the show ends. MJ is completely unhinged.
Andy asks why Shervin and GG don’t date. Really Andy? You know why. Then he moves on to discussing whether or not Shervin is enabling GG. GG points out that Mercedeh is really aggressive today and she asks her not to turn on her (like she did Asa). Reza says that Shervin plays the peacemaker on the show just to look good on camera. You might consider taking a page from that book, Reza. It’s called minding your manners when the entire world is watching you. Why are MJ and Reza saying that Shervin always has to present himself as perfect. He got up in GG’s face this season and threatened her like a man. He failed to protect and defend her from Reza. He joined in on Reza’s attacks on GG. This segment makes no sense.
Finally someone points out that Reza picks a target every season to attack. Andy says Asa is the only one left, is she nervous that it will be her turn next? Asa says she isn’t worried about it. Golnesa says that Reza tried going after Shervin this season. Apparently, Reza and Asa didn’t want Shervin to go on the camping trip. Golnesa refused to go if he was not invited. Shervin hints that Reza and Asa were not happy that he was made a full cast member. Reza says that he didn’t want Shervin on the camping trip because he enables GG and it would ruin the intervention. Because, you know, Reza just wants to help Golnesa. Oh Please.
Mike thinks he is very respectful of women.
Time to scrutinize Golnesa’s health issues. Reza says he went to a doctor who specializes in rheumatoid arthritis to find out about what Golnesa was experiencing. Even Andy says that is weird and obsessive. Reza thinks it is perfectly normal. Not one thing Reza did or said to Golnesa this season was from a caring heart. Everything he did all season was to mock and attack Golnesa and accuse her of lying about having RA. Shervin sticks up for Golnesa but says he has a problem with her calling her treatments chemotherapy. Golnesa does have chemotherapy treatments. She didn’t say it’s the same dosage as cancer patients get, or that it would have the same side effects but it is the same drug. Why on earth would anyone attack a friend for saying they are getting chemo? She sits there for hours with an IV drip in her arm. Why must they all try to compare it to cancer treatments and say it’s not that bad. How bad does the treatment need to be before they can be compassionate to their friend?
Finally, we get to the blowjob video. Golnesa says that Reza is always injecting himself into everyone’s business. She brings up all the accusations he has made against everyone. Reza just starts screaming at her to “Get off my show!” He says it over and over and over and that is what he truly thinks. It is his show and everyone else is just on as supporting characters. I think he honestly believes that people tune in because of him rather than in spite of him.
Andy uses a twitter question to ask Golnesa about the root of her anger issues. He basically goes all show me on the dolly where the bad man hurt you. Why is this necessary? It’s clear by Golnesa’s need to surround herself with knives for protection and her heavy drinking that she has been though some shit. A reality show reunion is not a safe place for GG to open up about that. Especially with Reza making nasty comments about the question itself.
Then Reza has his dramatic moment where he acts like he goes into an office every day and gets mocked about his sex tape. Shut the fuck up, Reza. Better yet, just keep on crying like a little bitch. Reza has attacked the character of almost everyone on the show, but if it happens to him he needs a pity party. MJ waddles out behind him with Kleenex to kiss his ass. She should be ashamed of herself as well. She has been the victim of Reza for all of season two and yet she is screaming about Golnesa not having compassion for him? Give me a break.
Golnesa and Reza sort of exchange apologies.
Asa is open to making up with MJ. MJ is adamant she will never be Asa’s friend again.
After filming Golnesa goes to Reza and tells him that she really wants them to work their issues out. Reza says he is emotionally spent and maybe they can talk at another point. I’m not sure why Golnesa would bother.
