Viva Shahs Vegas

Oh, MJ.

 

Salam! (Kiss, kiss.) This week, we find ourselves heading to Las Vegas for Reza's 38th birthday. I've actually been to Vegas with my Perisan uncles, and, boy, it was nothing like this.

Let's start with the ride to the airport. First of all, Reza rented a party bus for all his friends. I got so confused by the sight of it because I couldn't fathom someone taking that just to the airport that I literally said out loud in my office "Wait -- I thought they were flying." They were. The party bus had everything -- drinks, a stripper pole, and a drunk MJ! I couldn't stop shaking my head -- she was tipsy the moment she and Reza stepped on the bus. There were a few "Oh no, MJ"s mumbled in my office.

But off to Vegas the crew goes -- in a private plane, natch. Everyone's digging the ride except Golnesa who is apparently afraid of flying. Seems others think she's just being hyperbolic for attention. I would hope that wouldn't be the best way she can think of to get attention! Pass the peanuts, please!

The gang finally arrives at the Aria Resort & Casino, or rather at the absurdly amazing suite Reza has booked for the trip. The only word I can use to describe the space is "sprawling." After calling dibs on rooms, the gang heads to dinner. GG and MJ are late because GG apparently takes a long time to get ready (there's always at least one in a group), and MJ says that she's the type of girl who waits for her friends. I don't. I literally cannot stand when people take a long time to get ready, so props to MJ for being that patient! When they finally arrive it's clear that MJ is still drunk and just keeps getting more drunk. At one point she turns to GG to comment on Reza's friend, Anita's dress. Anita hears her but doesn't cause a scene. This is called maturity. MJ has bigger problems on her hands though because she is beyond wasted. At the club -- aptly titled "Haze" -- MJ spirals out of control. We see her start to take off her dress, and the confusion sets in. Then we see her throw up. Not so confused anymore. At least the girl knew she didn't want to get her dress dirty! And, um, at least she was quiet and didn't cause a scene? I'm scraping here, people. MJ is taken back to the suite by none other than Asa, who just wants some tea. Reza leaves his own party to help his friend, and most likely also just to watch drunk MJ -- he knows where the real hilarity will go down. Mercedes gets into her infamous "housedress" and is forced into a bath. Then a shower. Finally, she's in bed. Back at Haze, GG is ready to introduce her boy toy Chris and maybe make Mike jealous. Too bad Mike already knows him. I mean, he's the king of Las Vegas -- he knows everyone! Eh, Mike's more my type. What about you?!

The next morning, everyone's looking pretty peachy, even MJ! She must've taken some B12 before they went out. GG seems annoyed by all the drinking, etc., and honestly I wonder if I'd feel the same. Even though it's funny to watch all the chaos, if I were with a group and someone threw up in a club we were at, I would be annoyed, so even though I love MJ, I might side with GG on this one.

The gang heads to the pool and once again Anita's clothing is the topic of conversation, specifically her bathing suit. It's Herve Leger and it can't get wet. While I agree that that's it's pretty pointless to wear a bathing suit that can't get wet and causes bad tan lines, it was amazing! Eventually, Anita speaks up to MJ in the cabana, GG hears, and the two girls fight and GG is pretty much down for the count.

The awkwardness continues back at the suite as the crew gets ready for another dinner. Although she makes it to Reza's dinner later, albeit late, all of her friends are ignoring her. She starts to tear up and leaves. MJ was the only one who said that the group was wrong by by alienating GG, but then again, MJ was kind of as guilty as GG was for talking about Anita. Not only does GG leave the table, but she apparently leaves Vegas! It'll be interesting to see what happens when everyone gets back to Beverly HIlls next week.
