The Persian Version

MJ gives us the story behind Anita and GG's fight and her real estate career.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the Vegas trip? Highlights?
MJ: Our trip to Vegas was a weekend none of us will ever forget, EVER. We all headed out with the same agenda -- to have an amazing time celebrating together for Reza's birthday.

Did it go that simply and smoothly? Of course not, but looking closely at the six of us, (or eight), a weekend with lots of shenanigans is the wisest bet. Looking back, I think everyone else was almost too tame!! Sammy usually has a sorority of girls on his bedroom floor, (he doesn't share his bed with his one night conquests). Mike would have a singled out at least one girl, and GG deserved to be better entertained and attended to by Chris. I'm pretty sure she was disappointed by how it (didn't) go. . .  

As for myself on the first night of Vegas, well. . .I do love to have a good time, and I love to party with friends on special occasions. But I definitely didn't pace myself and by the time we were at dinner, I was saying and acting in ways that would not, had I not been intoxicated. I'm usually the person hosting and being attentive to everyone -- making sure everyone in the room feels loved, engaged, and included. I have too much love in my heart to act any other way, but if the alcohol "gets ya" you forfeit the chance to be your true self. In the end, with egg on my face, we all got to laugh about it, and after all, it was Vegas.

Bravtov.com: Could you believe GG just bounced from the Vegas trip? What do you think about her behavior over the course of the weekend?

MJ: Yesssss, I can! Considering the way everyone else treated her at the last dinner, she would have to be a glutton for punishment to stick around for more of the silent treatment! GG thought it through before bouncing, and the idea of heading back to L.A. with a plate of cold fish, in confined airspace, (note her fear of flying) she dismissed herself in a way that was the most mature thing for her, emotionally.

Why aren't any of these people proud to be American? It's persian this and persian that and always with the persian over and over again. Yes, the show is somewhat about them being from Iran but why is this so all consuming to all of them? I don't get that part. I'm originally from a different country but now I'm lucky enough to be American,they all went to High School here why can't they say there "American" now,this is where they choose to STAY not IRAN!

All the people straving in America and to see these people brag about how much money they spend for this and that. It's disgusting. They do not even appreciate what God has given them. CANCEL THE SHOW !!!!!!!

MJ dont know what show your are talking about but you started the hole thing. You were talking trash about Anita's dress right beside of her. She was very sweet that she didnt knock you out right there. You sit and let GG take on your battle. You need to grow up. Just so you know drinking brings out the truth not the other way around so your really just a fake. I hope you will watch the show again and grow from how bad you acted!!!!

i have nothing against any of the characters on the show because i can see that they all have good hearts and are there for eachother no matter what, but i just don't understand why MJ said i still havn't forgivin anita. She didn't do anything, you were drunk at the table and said that statement about the dress. And anita should not have even taken it seriously, MJ was drunk at the time..ppl act and say things they don't want to when they are drunk

I'm in awe of this show, and I just realised why these people seem so familiar to me. Please change the name of the show to "Persian Shore." I swear this is "Jersey Shore" with wealthy Persian guidos and guidettes.

LOVE REZA!!! GG needs to grow up...Totally delusional. I guess every show needs there drama queen but she's way past that. The fact that she thought Anita "attacked" her is just crazy...unless we are not seeing all of the interactions they had. GG needs some help. I feel sorry for her.

GG is a bitter, angry, spoiled little girl! That's right, I said little girl because an adult does not act the way she does. She is at a restaurant waiting for MJ and she says "it would be nice to see a menu." It's how she said it that makes her sound like a spoiled brat. And why does she have to say everytime she gets angry "my ghetto comes out?" People who have money have anger management issues as well and they never say it is the ghetto coming out so why must she say it? She lives in a world where everything has been given to her. Good for her, God bless but reality is that we live in a world where we have to do everything ourselves. When I hear people say that they are tired and all they have done is shopped all day I laugh. Give them a day in my shoes and you will find out what being tired is all about. That's why so many of us are playing the MegaMillions so that maybe with a little luck we will get a little of that. I'm not asking for it all because that would be greedy so then I could see what it feels like to do NOTHING all day. What a dream. Thank God we can dream!! Grow up GG, nobody likes a spoiled brat.

Reza is fabulous!! He, Asa and Anita are the only tolerable people on this show. The others are scuzzy poseurs.

I don't hate the show... I'm sure to watch again... I do like Reza, Asa, Anita, MJ, Mike, Sammy...not so much GG...I feel GG is a mean girl, who thinks she can say/do what she wants with no consequences...very sad to watch...I feel MJ is letting GG draw her in where she really does not wish to be, but does not open her mouth enough to put her 'friend' in her place...Asa is very cool, a bit humble...Reza, stay the peacemaker, but stop condoning bad behavior...Anita, I haven't seen enough about her yet to comment...Mike/Sammy - you two dudes, stay focused on the end result and you will be fine...don't get caught up in the drama...

GG NEEDS TO SERIOUSLY SEE A THERAPIST FOR ANGER MANAGEMENT. SHE'S A BEAUTIFUL GIRL BUT HER ATTITUDE NEEDS ADJUSTING...WHAT IS SHE AFRAID OF? AND WHY SO INSECURE? I CAN SEE HER FRIENDS LOVE HER, BUT IT'S HARD FOR THEM TO LIKE HER...PLEASE MY DEAR GET HELP.

GG is an angry, negative person. she needs to get a job and do something to help others - she is a spoiled BRAT. it is hard to understand why ANYONE would want to be around her at any time. she is lucky to have any friends.

Never understood why the clubs in Beverly Hills were full of Persian men, (now I know). The show was just on while I was working, not something I would usually watch, but, it is informative.

out of everyone on this show, Reza "seems" to be the most grounded and mature--MJ I think your heart is in the right place, but you come across as a bit teo faced. To date, Anita appears nice and all, but after watching the latest episode and the Champagne contest I see a bit of a devil emerging--Reza cracked me up when he said: Anita's converting everyone over fromteam GG to team Anita, at the end of the night she was shacking hands, and kissing babies (priceless). You all need to grow up.

I cant read all that....but lighten up on the alcohol will you? Not a good look. And don't blame it on Vegas, you seemed toasted way before the trip. Gee Gee is already pretty unlikable. She seems jealous, immature, attention starved, and someone I wouldnt want to be around....NEXT!!! Okay, to sum it up, today, I like everybody else---especially Reza who seems to really enjoy a life of drama free fun! But I'll see how Im feeling about everyone as time goes on.

MJ - you stated ' I still haven't forgiven Anita.' What did she do? You started sh*t at the dinner by talking about her dress to GG. You and GG are the mean girls! Anita reacted to the crap that you guys were saying at the pool. She is gorgeous and GG is jealous of her! Grow up!

I love the show and everyone on it brings their own style and personality. Reza is soo grounded and the papa bear of the group. GG should get back into therapy (as she mentioned she hasn't been in a bit)...there's a reason for the need for a lot of attention. MJ needs to curtail so much drinking....is that about her mother or her love life?? Anita is cool however the "politiking" she did at the champagne party was TACKY. Sammy is low key and about business and Mike just hasn't grown up yet in his personal life. And last but not least, I love love Asa. She reminds me of myself---very much the unique one who could care less what anyone thinks! I didn't know what to think when the show previewed but I am so glad to be one of it's biggest fans and I will continue to watch.

You and GG were sooooo mean to Anita! Anita seems really sweet. I hope they make her a regular cast mate next year. Hmmmm....if they add a thin, pretty, stylish, persian girl that is like-able: How would you & GG deal with that? Meow! Persian cat fight?!

Sorry MJ, but GG brought it on herself. If you badmouth people, talk about their awful clothing, make them feel like garbage, naturally people are not going to like it and people will protest. You started it by making a very unkind comment about Anita. A burlap sack on Anita would look great because she's a very beautiful woman. That woman could model if she wanted to and I would venture to guess she will be getting a lot of offers for commercials and such eventually. You will not. And neither will GG. Can't believe you can sit there and criticize her clothing. Even if you wore the latest and most expensive Versace dress it still would not do anything for you. Sorry to be so blunt but since you were being downright rude about Anita I figured you can take the honesty. Just what I'm seeing from the public's perspective.

MJ, First of all, you ALL need to grow up. Reza is the most grounded. You girls act like you are 20 yr. olds, not people in business with careers. I don't care if it is VEGAS.... getting thoroughly soused where you are throwing up in a venue and a friend has to babysit you all night is totally, TOTALLY out of control.

I like you MJ, but I'm team Anita and not team GG. You are wrong to think Anita needs to walk it off. Everyone heals at different times and you and GG just talked crap about her, you being drunk is no excuse.

If you cant take it dont dish it out - Antia was only responding to what was said and done to her. GG, of course, can dish it out but cant take it and now it is looking like you can either. Do unto others and you would have them do unto you. Stay away from GG you are a much nicer when you do.
