From one reality show Covid Vacation to another, we start this Shahs of Sunset recap back in the Redwoods. It is kind of a grueling house with so many steps, I think I would just stay inside. Oh and in Breaking News, Paulina and Mike are somehow still together. It is really beautiful there in the day though. Nighttime is a bit scarier. Mike, Nema and Shervin talk briefly about Reza coming for London for no reason on the bus ride. Then, everyone else shows up. There are two options for the day. Wine tasting or ziplining. I think you all know which one I would pick. 🙂 Nema, Golnesa, Destiney, Reza and London go to the winery. It’s really gorgeous there. I should totally go to California and check it out before it falls into the ocean or burns down. I will NEVER fly in to San Francisco airport though. The runway is insane.
At the winery, they are tasting a lot of wines. Nema gets drunk and thinks all the ladies are hot. Reza tries to control everything. He starts with apologies to London. So, we are off to a good start. But, he really doesn’t mean it. Sherv, Mike and Mercedeh go ziplining. I think Leila, Golnesa’s sister is the fourth. They are all super nervous. The ziplines are very high up! Shervin goes first Mercedeh tries to back out but goes anyway. Mike also wants to back out but goes. Only six more lines to go! lol. Meanwhile, at the winery, Everyone is drunk. They start talking about how Mike controls Paulina and would not let her come. Reza is wasted. The zipliners loved it after the first couple of tries. Then, they go shopping and discuss the situation between Tommy and Reza.
It’s time for the cowboy themed party. Everyone goes all out with the costumes. London is amazing with her spurs and cowboy outfit. Reza is still wasted from the winery. They all have made up characters. This is all rather ridiculous. Destiney is the last one to get ready which conveniently allows her time to receive texts from Paulina. Funny how that works. Destiney calls Paulina. They talk for the first time in six weeks. Paulina says that Mike told her she needed to stop talking to his friends. She feels able to call now because Mike is not there. She says that “history has repeated itself.” But then they “lost their connection.” Meanwhile the others are having homemade potato chips with onion dip. I want some.
Destiney calls her back on another phone and Paulina says she found him on IG with other women again. And she is done with him. But, once again, that is not true. They are still together in present time. OMG homemade clam chowder in a sour dough bowl. Bring it to my mouf! Then, Golnesa dies. It’s murder mystery. While I would love to be at one in person, I find them boring on these shows. Reza is so drunk he has to go to bed. No one is any good at this whole murder mystery thing. Somehow, they solve it and Golnesa lives to see another day.
And They Lived Happily Ever After, Ha NOT!
The next morning, Golnesa and MJ have a serious talk about motherhood. Golnesa says that she had a baby for selfish reasons. She wanted a kid but now she gets that her son will have no father. So, she feels guilty. She feels like everyone is judging her for her decision. Mercedeh is such a sweet friend to her. Later Mercedeh and Reza talk about him not being allowed to see baby Shams. I think that is a reasonable reaction from Tommy. Reza NEVER ONCE CHECKED ON MERCEDEH when she was in ICU facing life or death situations. Reza can go fuck himself. I am Team Tommy all the way.
For whatever reason, Mercedeh wants to let Reza see the baby. I honestly don’t thing Mercedeh really even likes Reza that much. I used to have conversations with almost everyone on this show before season one aired. I’m the biggest superfan of this show. They pretty much all did interviews with me before Bravo told them they were not allowed to talk to bloggers. I knew about Asa and Jermaine Jackson then and she asked me not to post about it and I didn’t. Reza thought it was funny that I called him a “sockless moron.” There was a LOT going on before the first episode ever aired. I still talk to a couple of them. And the relationship between Reza and Mercedeh is toxic for her as far as I am concerned. Reza is a horrible person.
I don’t think Mercedeh really wants to reconcile with Reza. Why are they in matching pajamas? I don’t buy anything on the show about them reconciling. That’s just my opinion. I’ll chime in in the comment section below regarding Mike being on WWHL and Reza and Paulina went with him.
