It's nice to see MJ's dad and how she takes care of him. It's sad
when our parents get older and you see them being physically so
vulnerable. It would be interesting to see how her parents interact
with each other.
Aww I'm happy for Mike. Jessica is a nice girl. I hope it works out between them. I think regardless of what he or his parents say, once he falls in love, they will accept the girl regardless of Jewish or Persian.
OMG Reza and I had such a fun day that day with the Persian psychic. We were both tripping out how accurate she was with what she said about him! Whoa.
I am a fan, and I adore the family values, especially with the men, and there parents. Americans, when they turn of a certain age , they are to be out of the house, and supporting there own.I am a female, and had to do the same. Hey no one said it was easy, , What I don't get is the way you all say I Love You to each other, and then you stab each other in the back. I know this is scripted , but you all do it. My fav is GG. She may be on the crazy side, but she's real, and working on it. She's not in denial, or calling people out on camera, Which has got to be embarrassing if it wasn't rehearsed. I'm enjoying the drama, keep the knifes hidden. LOL
I was disappointed in Asa during this episode. Omid apologized. Asa didn't even recognize that what she said was offensive. GG even gave her an out by saying that she knows Asa wouldn't make her comments to mean, but Asa didn't bite. When MJ recognized the truth in what GG was saying, Asa accused her of being two-faced. Of course, GG shouldn't have disrespected the friend's house but this argument was Asa's fault. She brought it up and then refused to acknowledge any pain she might have caused. Whether she's a fan of Persian noses or not, she still offended someone. Merely justifying isn't enough.
--Its very sad to see Asa bragging about having 30K in gold coins buried in her front porch. While her Poor Mother is struggling to support the Family, Asa should get off Her ""Persian Princess Butt "" And start helping her Mother out... Instead of instigating arguments with GG just to have a storyline....
GG got a raw deal on the party incident. You were trying to play it as if you were above it all, but you got PHYSICAL with her FIRST by pushing her. She was simply trying to talk to you about the nose comment, which, by the way, was RUDE OF YOU to say. You don't want to take responsibility for your role in that situation...you were just as much if not MORE responsible for the outcome in that incident than GG was.
Asa, you and Reza are my favorite cast members and I enjoy witnessing your artistic passion. As far as your fight with GG goes, she clearly has personality issues to work through, but I will give her kudos for initally trying to be civil. If you ever watch the pool party again, I hope you will consider her point of view (even if you don't agree with the source of her anger) and see that she felt dismissed from the start. Yes, her response was horrific, but you already knew that was a possibility and it would probably have been better to try to hear her out a little more reasonably. That being said, Reza and Mike laughing and MJ playing sidekick didn't help either, so none of it can be put all on one person.
I dont like the way people talk about you in the comment section they arent very positive
asa I love your music its a twist of sade,anita baker and m. carey.....its so sexy n definantly sex music I want to know where I can buy yourr your c.d?? Why dont you sing more on the show and why dont you have your music in the background of shahs of the sunset introduction? I just think your great, I love your spirit n character.
You have 2 degrees one in psychology and 1 in philosophy and fail to see that your comments about his nose were insulting, it wasn't just one comment, you kept repeating it several times at the table. Granted that you didn't know that it may have been a sensitive subject but when GG brought to your attention calmly in the beginning at the pool party you kept defending your ground and not taking a moment to be empathetic and simply apologize for oversight. It would've ended right there but unfortunately it seems you're just as stubborn as she is, although you do have 2 degrees and she doesn't, lets not forget that!!
btw, i get the pop and i get the persian, but what is priestess for? what makes you a priestess??
@star7 ---Totally agree? Its funny how her own mother " Laughs" at the whole Persian Princess Crap.
@HadToDoIt -- Well Spoken!! Asa knows exactly what she's doing to GG , Keeps her relevant on the show ..
I like Asa. GG not so much. Maybe if GG got a job and some independence from her father, maybe she wouldn't be so angry at the world. Asa's cheers to Omid's nose was out of the norm, but I think she was just toasting to people being true to themselves. I have a big nose too and I didn't take offense to Asa's comment.
Asa, in the episode I watched you shoved GG first. People will not always believe what you say but they will believe what you do. So you may speak zen, coolness,maturity etc but shoving GG nullifies the verbiage. Can you also own that the subtext of how great you think "big noses" are was lost in your overt comment on the size of Omid's nose in front of people he was just meeting? These were your guests....was this your idea of making your guests feel comfortable? Finally why can't you show MJ some grace as she tries to mediate between you and GG and see solutions to a situation? This is not being two faced; this is being a peacemaker. Thought you of all people would be into this.
Paingirl I also thought that MJ was trying to make everyone see both sides of the situation to bring resolution. That's not being two faced it called being a friend. For someone so accepting Asa is short sighted.
Overall it is nice to see that you are not so caught up in material things as the other girls are, however you did post that you want to make a ton of money...The nose comment, whether you are tired of it or not you need to own up to it. You and Brandi from Beverly Hills need to see a therapist about telling truths at inappropriate times. It comes off as being rude. If you offend someone, apologize. Don't be so self-righteous.
I don't like you at all, I believe you are too fake and push it too hard to show you talented. I am sorry, your song is just embarrassing and non sense. do you listen to iranian music?????? we have tones of great singers. why did you embarress your self with that stupid TEHRANJELES song? BTW, you were too rude to that poor guy, you need to learn how to welcome your guest.
Asa, I second your motion home gurl and you are my favorite on the show! You da bomb and I absolutely enjoy your weirdness, music and karma. Work it gurl, I see you ma-ma!
I love you Asa.
GG has serious problems. She has a different excuse every time! She shouldnt be on TV. It's very disturbing to watch. It's way past reality TV drama. She has issues and I dont enjoy watching. Mj is clueless. Why she is not even on GG about her disgusting behavior in a major way boggles me. ???
This episode was crazy! I do feel like you and GG needed to get things squared before the BBQ. I felt like GG was trying to be calm. However, she is a little "princess" and seemed out of control. Is it my imagination or does she feel like everyone owes her something? My only issue with you was you didn't handle it in your cool "Asa" way. You got a little ruffled. I have never seen you like that. I guess there's a first time for everything... You rock!
I just want to ask......... did anyone notice the little debbie snack cakes being served at the swank pool party?
@msn42 OMG....you are kidding...no I didn't notice, but will look for them...were they packaged? Were they oatmeal pies? I just want the recipe for Teriq (sp)? Asa said it was amazing....i would love to try it....although i am not a white rice fan....i would make an exception to try this dish....
FlutterBy msn42 They show a woman getting food off the table at the party and there is a platter of the round white cakes with brown lines that little debbie sells. They were on a platter all unwrapped and neatly stacked. LOL
"Many Persian live souless lives and put too much emphasis on material items".
The glasses, porch, toilet, and business class.
Your comment to Omid......apologize and stop trying to justify your rude remark.
You portray yourself as being zen and original but you're being a hypocrite.
I love your style and music but it seems your head may have gotten a liitle big.
jordy what does wanting a toilette with a bidet and wanting to be comfortable on a flight have to do with being soulful? You need to accept that Asa is a complex being who is real. Real people are not cartoon chracters and have different needs. Don't be so simplistic.
@sassynclassy Asa alluded that some Persians measure success based on money and stature. Which in her opinion is not living a very soulful life. We see that she has and wants the same luxuries as the people she is critical of........yet is struggling to pay her mortgage and bills. (Keeping up with the Persians) Asa has every right to spend her money however she pleases but shouldn't judge others who enjoy and can afford the finer things life. Maybe she could hawk some of that gold jewelry to help the bills......now that would be REAL. ;)
Asa, I love you and the show and I watch even reruns. But recently, I heard you mention Momar Kadafi, the Libya leader. What exactly did you say and could you explain you comment?
She made her comment while trying on clothes for a fashion shoot. She was explaining the image that she wanted to portray-- a Qadafi bride. I interpreted that as a female counterpart to Qadafi, who was notorious for his extravagant tribal costume/outfits.
@LittleAppleAnnie Qaddafi bride? More like bride of Boy George. I like certain aspects of Asa, but I'm not feeling her fashion at all.
Asa, I like you but your nse comment was rude. Even if you have artwork indicating your like rage noses is irrelevant. Meanwhile, GG is insecure, spoiled and difficult to deal it.
Asa, You are amazing! I completely disagree with the other comments that criticize you for being a truthful person in the face of so much ridiculous nonsense behavior from GG. You did not provoke her. You were already gracious when you kindly greeted Omid at the party rather than ignoring him, as I'm sure GG would have done, had the situation been reversed. There is no reason for you to lower your standards for people like GG and MJ, whose unbelievably childish, spoiled behavior doesn't even merit a reply.
I love your artwork and believe what you said about your appreciation for the integrity that comes with embracing one's natural appearance.
Asa how do you deal with GG she is so disturbing Holy Moly, I have never seen a grown person behave like such an animal Throw that lady in a cage and throw away the key I feel so sorry for her parents they didn't do a good job at all I'm sorry no excuse for her monkey behavior she should be embarrassed! get that monkey off the show
trusmommy02 GGs sister seems to have her stuff together though,and they were raised by the same parents.
im confused as to what was different between the two girls. maybe they made different allowances for GGs behavior and not her sister's?
GG is out of control,she obviously hasnt been out in the real world b/c people/employees dont put up with that crap lol
Asa, you are very nice, but you need to take your ego down a notch! The comments below, saying what's with the halo, you're being rude, etc...it's all ego. By the way, last week you told us GG's guy was ok with the nose comment...didn't sound like it!
You look fantastic, you seem happy, you have a nice home and you are getting a lot of airtime...keep your ego in check because when people turn on you, it all goes away. And dig those gold bars up! Do you know how long it would take someone to follow you home, wait till you leave and jackhammer down to the gold?! Probably 15 minutes.
Perhaps there is a part of you that thinks you are being sincere, or "golden". But provoking a drunken GG when she was trying to have a conversation with you is like poking a hungry bear. You were every bit as responsible for what happened; you just looked better doing it. Even when your friends were telling you to knock it off. You really came across as a mean girl.
The comment to Omid (?) about his nose was inexcusably rude. How would you like someone to tell you how nice it is that you keep your ass big, instead of having liposuction? That, my dear, is a back handed compliment. You pretend to be nice, but OUCH, it hurts.
ESinAZ Great blog. Couldn't have said it better. Both Asa and GG contributed alot of heat to what went down, but Asa I feel is more responsible for the mayhem.
I agree , for someone who keeps saying how 'spiritual' she is and talking about harmony and so on, she was rude and mean and her insensitive comments started the whole thing
ESinAZ I completely disagree. Why cant somebody express their oppinion about somebody's natural nose bc they are proud of their ethnic features.
That you're putting a compliment about a nose on the same level as GG's monkey behavior boggles me.
Asa has put up with GGs rude behavior for too long now. Enough is enough.
sassynclassy ESinAZ Because it was just rude, that's why!!! It is classless to offend people. It is not a good trait to go around offending people, whether the guy had a super loud and obnoxious laugh she didn't need to point it out either. She comes off as if she were raised in a barn.
C... Agree! I said in another post I want to eat with these guys..... everything looks sooooooo good, but the rice looked heavenly... please post recipe Asa!
i like you but on the outside looking in you were rude first. and you cant tell someone that there nose is big and there laugh is loud and you barely know them you like to out spoken then you need to be able to deal with it come back at you
