Although I don’t think I’m going to be thrilled with this episode, the photos that the lovely Lady C pulled for me have me a little baffled. It appears that there are two scenes with these fools in costumes tonight. Asa last week there was a lot of speculation about whether or not Asa’s miracle baby was naturally conceived. I totally forgot to mention that my mom had me at 40. I was an accident and she thought she was in menopause.
We are starting with Asa at her parents. I love all the food they have! Even production is going after Asa this season. As she tells her parents that she didn’t feel like her friends were very supportive in Israel, they intersperse clips of when they were being supportive.
It’s a boys’ night out at the club. Mike is there to find someone to screw. They are all guzzling bottles of liquor. Shervin has some of the worst pick up skills I have ever seen, screaming across the bar some girl, the slurring at her touching her. I would have decked him.
Destiney arrives just in time to literally pour alcohol down Mike’s throat straight from the bottle. Does she know what happens to Mike when he drinks? This is like the first season when Sammy poured liquor down MJ’s throat. None of the people need help getting the alcohol in them. Mike hurls insults at the very low-grade THOTs at this place and shoves a few of them away from him. His pick-up approach seems to be “Come here, so I can tell you to get the fuck away from me.” My announces that he is tired and wants to go home. Mike wants a nice Jewish, wholesome wife who will cook him dinner. Of course he had that and still horndogged all around town.
Reza takes MJ shopping for knobs for her kitchen cabinet makeover. MJ is pretty depressed this season with the parents situation and the wedding postponement and the moving. It has her very overwhelmed. So I totally get why she was unable to look at walls with thousands of knobs and pulls and decide on one to get. I’m overwhelmed by proxy. Later, MJ calls Reza to tell him that Sherv has been getting his swerve on with their married friend Tara for the past five months. Her husband has thrown her out of the house. Before she told him the news, she made him swear not to say anything. Oh MJ, You know you can’t trust Reza with anything. Why not just tell TMZ instead? Of course they are talking about this big scandal on TV as Reza waits at a table for Sherv to join him for dinner.
Mike, smuggles in a regular size bottle of liquor into the restaurant. I think the place may be owned by Muslims, which makes this behavior even cruder than if you were sneaking Wild Turkey in a ziplock baggie down your pants in Sanford Stadium. #TotallyRandomExample Tommy makes a rare appearance to round out the four guys. Sherv says things are great with his Australian beard and he’s in love.
Golnesa has baby fever. She has known Shalom for two months, she has stopped her RA treatments so she can get pregnant and tattooed his name on her side. In a couple more months will be engaged and married. For. less. than. a week. before. they. split.
GG tells Sherv what MJ is saying about him and Tara. Sherv sets up a lunch date with MJ to tell him that he is disappointed she would be spreading rumors rather than talking to him about it. He says that Tara is a psychopath with serious problems. Ah, so he is guilty. Or at least reality show script guilty. When guys go straight for the crazy girl defense, you know they are lying.
Adam also had baby fever. Adam wants Reza to go get his swimmers checked out. This scene was filmed in a coffee house full of cats for adoption. That grosses me out.
Mike still wants to sell shoes. This time it is baby shoes. I suppose someone has to do it. I just don’t see Mike being able to do this. The guy that is partnering with him looks like he secretly wants to be Mike’s Jewish wife.
Tommy and MJ are perfect together. I am very happy for them. However, I do not need to be present for the conception of their child.
Golnessa is having a party for her 35th birthday. Of all the things she could have probably gotten Bravo to pay for, she chose an 80s themed party at a skating rink. Everyone is there. Even “Shalom.” When Golnessa tells Asa and Shalom that she can start trying for a baby in two months, Shalom looks stunned. Apparently, GG has not mentioned to Shalom that she wants to get knocked up as soon as possible. I’d like to point out that I see nothing about Shalom’s gene pool that screams, “IDEAL BABY DADDY” to me. But that’s none of my business.
When MJ arrives, she greets Asa. Asa asks her how her father is doing. MJ says he is out of ICU and doing better. Then she gives her the cold shoulder and walks away. Every season these fools gang up on someone. At the reunion last season, Andy pointed out that the only one not be Reza’s victim in the first five seasons was Asa. Now, in season six, that is exactly where we are. Does MJ not remember when it was her turn? I don’t understand, even if it is storyline, why they do this to each other. Or why production thinks we like it.
Guess who has the last call time for this scene? Tara, the alleged cheating wife. She is so not Sherv’s type. Aside from the Y chromosome, she’s a brunette and just not the kind of girl I see him with. That must be why he denies it. GG says that Sherv admitted off camera that he did sleep with her. I should point out here that GG and Sherv are actual friends in the off season. GG says she agreed to help Sherv cover it up. Apparently, telling us all about it on national TV is part of that plan.
Then Shervin arrives. I totally thought he was already there. This is awkward. It doesn’t take long before Sherv starts screaming at Tara that she is sick and crazy and a liar. I can hear the fans unfollowing him on Instagram as I am typing this. Then he gestures at her and says, “THIS? This is not even my type.” during a rant about how he can get any girl he wants.
I’d like to pause here to point out that Adam is dressed as Richard Simmons, wig and all. Shervin is… I don’t know who. Bon Jovi maybe?
Anyway, Reza gets all self-righteous with Shervin and tells him he needs to admit what he did. He swears he is telling the truth. No one believes him except for Destiney who was going to tell why she believes him but Asa’s obsession with the skating rink food interrupted her delivery.
The good news is, there was no further Asa bashing after MJ’s snub. I’m fine with Shervin taking the heat off of Asa.
Next week, more conspiracy about Asa’s method of conception, Mike’s stupid baby shoe storyline continues, and GG finds out she is deaf, probably from all the years of constant screaming.
