The bad news is, it’s time for another Shahs of Sunset Recap! The good news this is the last one until next season. Other good news is Destiney is on the bubble so this may be her last season. MAYBE. The other good news is Sara and her bizarre brother are one and done for this show. So let’s get through this because I have a million episodes of Guy’s Grocery games on my DVR and it’s really all I want to watch these days. Everything else is too heavy.
Okay, this is a problem. For some reason my DVR had two instances of this episode set to film AT THE SAME TIME. I need another show in the 9 pm slot so I deleted one iteration. BUT when I did that both deleted. So I just left it. Now, after letting the dog out, I planned to return five minutes behind on the DVR. And it’s not recording. I’m trying to get it to start recording but this maybe be very abbreviated. Le sigh.
Reza Won’t Stop Hurling Insults At MJ About His Issues
I come in with Reza screaming about how the show was great in the beginning. MJ points out the show was about her that season. True facts. That has always been the problem with MJ and Reza, they are both fighting each other to be the “star” of the season by any means necessary. Reza is up and out of his chair screaming at her. Adam looks embarrassed. MJ mock Reza for his poor hygiene (it’s been mentioned multiply times over the season he uses cologne as deodarant) I am already missing the Food Channel.
Suddenly, we move on to Adam and Reza who are trying to give the appearance that their relationship is great by holding each other’s hands like two scared kids about to go cliff jumping. Will Adam take any responsibility for his behavior? Will they admit they have an open relationship or are dual cheaters? The whole thing I don’t get about the storylines this season was how everyone pretended MJ and Ali talking about Reza and Adam’s situation was some big secret. It was all over the LAST reunion. They were barely speaking.
Adam Takes Responsibility For Naked Jenga (Sorta)
When Andy asks if they are in an open relationship, Adam says NO! and Reza is all like let me handle this. So he avoids the whole issue and says it is all MJ’s fault for spreading rumors about him in a bathhouse. MJ walks off again. I heard the bath house rumors and they were NOT from MJ. Again, why is he acting like the last reunion never happened?
Mike says it is up to Reza and Adam to decide if they want to admit to their open relationship and it is not MJ’s place. While that is true, it seems to be common knowledge in WeHo. Again Reza says that MJ was the only one who knew about…SOMETHING related to “naked Jenga” so when Destiney told them he immediately knew it came from her. So isn’t that him admitting it happened and blaming it on MJ? FINALLY, Adam says he is to blame for the whole thing because he sent inappropriate texts to Ali.
Everything That Happened Is Mercedeh’s Fault
Then, when Andy asks Reza about his physical assault on Ali, Reza blames that on Mercedeh as well. Apparently, everything wrong with his marriage is her fault. He knows this because his hair dresser told him so. She reminds the “self-entitled piece of shit” that she nearly died and was in a medically induced coma when all this happened. PLUS! She had been hospitalized for days before his confrontation with Ali and Reza NEVER came to see her. Only Shevin did.
GG and Destiney keep interrupting so Andy sends everyone off camera except MJ and Reza and Mike. Andy needs Mike to help mediate the situation. I’m bored with this. I’m going to step away as well. Banjo needs some encouragement to eat and his baked apple and carrots are done. The worst part of this part is a flashback to Season Two reunion when Reza eviscerated Mercedeh’s character, looks, and exposed a very private situation about her teenaged years. He has said things about her that should never be said, truth and lies. I’ve know things about MJ since before the season aired. I would never post. And HE is her best friend? They are beating a dead horse here.
Reza Has Never Been A Consistent Friend To MJ
Then there is a reel that is supposed to be a retrospective of this great friend. Right smack in the middle is the time that Reza TRIED TO DROWN MERCEDEH IN THE BATHTUB IN VEGAS! I tried to find a link to that recap. It was a terrifying episode. They both cry. Andy is really trying to get them back together. I don’t want Mercedeh back with Reza. Darth Vida come on camera to make a plea for them to make up. NOE! Reza is a POS. That said they will magically become besties again. Unless there is another new girl.
I spoke too fast. They are doing it over Facetime now. They chat a couple days about the reunion. I know that this friendship is real. But, it’s just super emotional. And with that, we shall see what transpires next season. I feel like Destiney will be out. And if they bring in another new female, Reza will try to make her his follower as well.
