It’s 4:30 pm and I am doing setups for tonight’s Shahs of Sunset recap and I am going to have to make some coffee because I’m having some sort of an afternoon crash. I thought about giving in to my huge desire to nap, but I’m afraid that would make me stay up late and I finally have my sleep schedule in a relatively normal place. So I’m going to try and fight off this narcoleptic fit. Yay! Took my B vitamins and drank some coffee and I’m good to go. Also, I am binging In Treatment on HBO. So good.
Two Sides To Every Story
Golnesa’s mother moved in during the pandemic and has been there for six month. I am amazed they are both still alive. Golnesa is having a welcoming party for baby Elijah. But, the baby will only be making a brief appearance due to Covid. That makes sense to me. Golnesa’s party planner is batshit crazy. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. It’s annoying to me that everyone has decided to do Sip and Sees for their babies. It’s a southern thing.
Golnesa and Destiney meet with Reza to discuss how hurt they are that Reza bailed on them in Palm Springs. We get a montage of previous seasons where Reza has treated Golnesa like crap over the years. We have dueling explanations about how Golnesa was blamed for Mike’s inappropriate texting. Mike tells MJ that Reza said it was Golnesa. Reza tells Golnesa that Mike told him it was Golnesa. They are both liars so I don’t know who to believe. But, if I were forced, I’d believe Mike over Reza. Golnesa tells Reza not to get into it with Mike at the baby’s party. Golnesa also spills the beans that Reza will never meet baby Shams.
Width Is Important
Mercedeh and Nema take an outdoor painting class. It looks fabulous! Thankfully, it is a still life and not a nude model. Nema is upset that Golnesa did not invite him to her party for Elijah. Mercedeh points out that he did reject here advances last season. Apparently, she is not over that. I actually loved both of their paintings. I’m trying to enjoy all of my artwork because if I want to move overseas eventually, I don’t know what I am going to do with it all. I can’t bear to part with it.
Golnesa goes to meet with the new girl, London and London’s spiritual advisor, Heather. I am terrible at spotting wigs or knowing a good wig from a bad wig, but I’m pretty sure Heather is wearing a really bad wig and a horrid shade of lipstick. Again, I don’t usually even notice such things so it has to be pretty bad, right? I really like London a lot. However, she appears to be batshit crazy. The spiritual advisor was asked to say who was telling the truth between Mike and Reza. She says basically that they both believe they are telling the truth. That sort of makes sense.
It’s Darth Vida’s Birthday!
I live for the scenes with Mercedeh and Tommy. By the way, since I am always whining lately, I should point out that I’m in a great headspace again today. I’m starting to think I should drink coffee every day. OMG! It’s the TRIFECTA! Vida is coming over! It’s Vida’s birthday. She is going to spend a night or two with them. I need a spinoff with these three. Shams is adorable! I need one of those lobster tails. Vida is so much nicer now that she is a grandmother.
Holy Shit! Lawn Kid just walked by and the girlfriend who always walks a block and a half behind him is pregnant! Good Lord. I told him to leave that girl alone a thousand times. Also why are they walking when he has a car now? I know, I know, not my problem. But dayum. This kid does not learn. I have a new lawn guy who is his same age and he is about 40 IQ points higher. SIGH.
Reza is really sad that he will never be able to meet baby Shams. He tells Adam that when they go to Golnesa’s party, they need to avoid Mike and MJ like the plague. He wants to focus on Golnesa and the baby. Whatever. We just need to get to this party you know it is going to be a freak show.
Reza Just Has To Stir The Pot
It’s party time! The party is jungle themed and it is, in true Shah’s fashion, WAY over the top. Oh Vida is coming to the party! YAY! Reza sucks up to Vida right off the bat. Reza also greets Mercedeh with a kiss on the cheek. Interesting. I thought she was the plague. Nema is not at the party, so he has a scene with his baby sister. Nema wants to be a director. I want to be a size 12. We all have our dreams. Vida tells Reza that Destiney needs an ass. Reza tells Destiney what Vida said. He’s such a drama queen. What happened to avoiding MJ like the plague?
Cue the African dancers. Really? Golnesa makes her grand entrance with the baby. Golnesa’s daddy holds the baby up like in the movie Lion King. I am not making this shit up. I have to admit that it looks like a super fun party. Golnesa says that everyone there has taken a Covid test. They can all gawk at the baby briefly at a six foot distance. He is a beautiful baby boy. Golnesa is pissed about the drama about… of all things Destiney’s butt, or lack thereof. It’s time for the big blow up. MJ and Mike come for Reza. Or maybe it is the other way around. Reza suddenly brings up the Turkey trip from how many seasons ago where Mike tried to get with Golnesa while with his previous fiancé.
Mike And Reza Tell Two Different Stories
Mike and Reza both call each other over the whole sexting scandal. They both blame the other for blaming Golnesa. I have no idea who to believe. They are both liars who lie. What do you think? Then Reza confronts Mercedeh about saying that Reza will never meet her son. MJ points out that for seven months prior to the incident where Tommy lost his mind on Reza’s backyard, he never bothered to try to see the baby. She says the only person she wanted to see when she was in the hospital was her mother, her husband and Reza. And he didn’t even call her.
Everybody starts screaming in defense of either Reza or Mercedeh. Somehow Golnesa is the moderator? LOL. The suddenly she’s all “this is my son’s happy day.” Please. You kid is barely old enough to find your teat. This affects him not at all. She kicks everyone out.
Next time: It’s a pumpkin patch trip with the babies for MJ and GG. And then it is Halloween. God, how I hate Halloween episodes. But this is my favorite Bravo show at the moment (along with Top Chef of course).
Who is telling the truth, Mike or Reza? I honestly do not know.
