In My Book
Sammy discusses his work ethic, GG's lack of work, and the rest of the cast.
Bravotv.com: We’ve obviously seen Mohammed’s parties before. Have you been to one of his shindigs before?
Sammy: Mohammed's parties are like a young boy going to his bar mitzvah and the Playboy mansion all in one.
He had DJ Cascade spinning at one of his last parties and it was going till around 5 am. I remember taking Mike with me and from the second he walked thru the gate and see a 80 million dollar home in front of him he was just wowed as i am sure all 1000-plus guest were. With all the music going on, people tugging on him, and all the madness surrounding him, the first second he saw me Mohammad said "How did it go today with the new project you started and is their anything I can help you with?" That's huge in my book.
Bravotv.com: Speaking of playboys -- you have a reputation for being a bit of one yourself, are you any closer to settling down at this point?
Sammy: I don't think I'm a playboy at all. I just have a huge hunger for life and women. Men are supposed to be into women and adore them, and that's what I do. Something happened in America after the '50s. Men stopped being rough and tough like Steve McQueen, Sean Connery, and Frank Sinatra. Now its a bunch of 17 and 18 year old punks that people look up to.
Bravotv.com: What do you think of GG’s knife-wielding? And of her inability to get off of her parents dime?
Sammy: It's very weird for me to see anyone live off someone else. My first job was when I was 12 years old at my uncle's bed shop in the summer time, then parking cars as a valet at 16 in high school, and I have never been without work. I love working and supporting me and my family.
About GG's knives, I think it's all due to a lack of attention. She loves to shock people with her crazy ways -- but she has a heart of gold.
Bravotv.com: How nervous were you to tour the house with Mohammad? What were you most stressed about?
Sammy: I'm always stressed around Mohammad because he is a huge perfectionist. It's his attention to detail that has gotten him to where he is today, and I wish one day I become just as good as him. I really couldn't sleep because I was so worried about doing a good job for him, but it's that stress that gets me going.
Bravotv.com: What did you end up giving MJ for her birthday? Did she manage to hang on to it?
Sammy: I gave MJ diamond studs for her b-day, and, yes, party girl managed to hang on to them -- but only because they were bolted on to her ear.Bravotv.com: What did you think of MJ and Reza's colonic?
Sammy: When MJ and Reza got a colonic I thought it was gross -- but I couldn't stop laughing.
Bravotv.com: Talk to us about Asa’s music? Do you rock out to it?
Sammy: I totally rock out to Asa's music and to Asa herself, she rocks. We have been friends for over 20 years and never had a fight or even an argument, and that soulfulness comes out in her music.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of GG's party for her parent's anniversary? What did you think of MJ showing up late?
Sammy: I think GG's parent's anniversary was very sweet due to the fact you barley see people married for 40 years.
MJ showing up late was typical MJ. The funniest part was when she tried busting some bulls--t and blaming her three-and-a-half hour tardiness on her work. I have never seen a real estate broker work on a Saturday night.
Bravotv.com: What can you tell us about the rest of the season? Is there loads more drama to come?
Sammy: The rest of the season will be hilarious. We are by far the best show on TV for a reason. Good luck finding a bunch of friends like us any place else. There will be plenty of drama to come.
