I'm back in my house lovers!!!
What you don't see is that I had been up all night packing boxes, then dealing with movers at 7 am, and moving all my things into my house.
My black fanny pack is cracking me up, but I needed it to keep all essentials in one place, you know phone, keys, money, etc.
It was so awesome to have my Boo Reza come through on my move in day to bless my house with me. Plus it was perfect to give him the very first tour of my house, especially because we share a passion for design, architecture, and the fine details to all things beautiful. Only my Boi Reza would notice all the little details that I obsessed about when I was designing the house with my architects, like the kind of marble, the Japanese TOTO bidet, the custom smooth modern exterior stucco, the movie projector, the fruiting olive tree, etc. . .I live for this stuff.
While I'm in bliss being in here, financially I am in a kray-zee place. I'm taking a really great risk by getting rid of my tenants and moving into the front house, which has been my main income for the last few years. This move is very symbolic to me though: I'm leaving the back house and moving into the front house. Stepping up my game and putting all my chips in! I'm ALL IN and cannot afford to lose. If you don't risk big you don't win big. I am basically getting rid of my "real estate hu$$le" and throwing myself into a gladiator arena of mandatory financial survival. In short, RIDE OR DIE.
I know you try to keep it calm, low key and real. I've just watched a couple episodes, but really? why try to talk to GG? Does she want to be stereotyped as pscho-b* She boviously has not had too many relationships with people in general. Like she deserves your presence? After The way she talks to you? NO Why exactly is she so out of control? She has no idea how Awful, uncultured and nasty she seems as she freely tries to call people You awful names! I am shocked!!! EVEN in common non-tv life you don't go that far unless you want someone to backhand you in the face...,much less does she realize she is going to forever document her bad taste in behavior on national tv.WAKE UP GIRL= I'd stay out of her way and don't give her a chance to fly off and insert foot in mouth. You can't educate people like HER in one conversation with deep issues.You don't call people the worst names you can think of and flaunt your stupid unawareness unless you don't realize how truly base you are. She keeps this up & people will not want to tolerate watching her,it's pitiful.
about the guy with the large nose: I get what you were trying to say by saying. I don't know how well you knew him but I think it was a comment you meant to toast and be a compliment of his natural feature but he could have been hurt by
it and GG reacting the way she did made it worse and way out of proportion.Like she feels she is qualified to judge a standard on Proper comments>PLEASE :)
I think it's pretty messed up what u said about that guys big nose and U didn't take responsibility for your words! GG did get obnoxious and crazy and she shouldn't have done that but saying "u have a loud @ss laugh" and toasting to his big nose was super rude and when they tried to talk to you about it u we're very dismissive!! I thought of u as a true real person but u need to learn how to apologize when you are wrong and u were wrong in this instance!
I think you are fabulous and a very nice person. I know you have tried to counsel GG and I think it is tragic the way she is; it is not something I believe she has any control over. That being said, you did the right thing. You cannot keep exposing yourself to toxic situations and being physically attacked.
Hey ASA, I have been a fan since i first seen this show with you and a couple others make it real..Thanks for the explaining the 'joon' word I would have never guessed it meant dear. I love love your culture what I got out of it so far.. Thanks good luck ASA on everything you do. Much love from NJ
YAY ASA! I've been a fan from day one. I like how you are, don't ever change! I also love how passionate you are about your art, and definitely great at it. I appreciate your point of view and how connected you are to your culture, something very rare now a days. One piece of advice, get an agent/manager! I feel that you should just let someone take care of the business side of things while you can concentrate on being the talent. I think this would help you a lot, and it doesn't have to be an agent that just totally takes over, let it be one that is a partner with you, helps you, guides you on the business side of things and can make those deals on your behalf in a way that you are comfortable with. This should help you grow as an artist and not have to deal with those uncomfortable moments when talking about budget. Kudos to how you handled yourself though, great job! But an agent would help alleviate some of that added stress that comes from being your own manager/agent on top of creating beautiful art! Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see more of you! YAY ASA!
Of all the cast members,the ones that are true to themselves are Reza,Mike, Asa and the new member Lilly. MJ seems to follow what GG does. She's her puppet. When will GG be put in jail for all her bullying? Can't wait for the cat fight between GG and Asa this Sunday. If what I saw in the preview of what's to come,then its going to be a doozy!!!!
GG is out of control and has a chip on her shoulder the size of the Persian empire.It's sad that you have to be the one to put her in check. Her Father needs to get her help or put her out.I really enjoy learning about your culture. Best wishes for continued success as an artist..
I love you Asa and really like it when you say "lovers", it fits you and sounds natural. What does it mean when you all say 'joon' when greeting each other? I'm enjoying watching all of you and learning about your culture.
Rhonu It showed it once on the show when they said it. It means "dear". I like how they all say that to each other, "Reza joon", "Mikey joon" (his mom over the phone).
Really enjoy watching you and think you are very creative, unique, and authentic person. GG's behavior is vile and it is very sad that she still acts tat way at 30 years old but that's when people pointing out a persons bad behavior becomes necessary. Clearly at her age with that behavior she's been sheltered from the truth so now it's time to be an adult and face that not everyone is going to or has to take her abominable behavior. Sorry to talk so much about GG on your timeline but she has no blog! Plus your standing up to her which is what us viewers wish we could jump through the screen and do sometimes!
I completely love your whole entire aura Asa! You are really exceptional and seeing someone being their own person on TV nowadays is extremely refreshing! I love your style, your personality, you are definitely one of my favorites! As for GG, she is simply a sad case. A 30 grown WOMAN who acts nothing more than a mere child. Money can buy you many things but it will not buy you CLASS.
I have to say i respect and love you, i admiral that you are proud of your culture, and admiral the beauty that ones traditions are so beautiful to continue, as for GG lame as , she needs to be admitted in a PSY wrath a get the medical treatment she needs, or get a higher supply of psy medications, she seems to have many traumatic symptoms for her to be 30 and not be independent. But my admiration to you FYI love your music..xoxo
I fully agree with you about GG. As long as daddy is funding her, she will not change. She is a bully and uses every excuse in the book to cause trouble. Love you though.
Good stuff. Amazing. Those angels were really out there. So, tonight before I sleep. I too am on that path. G-d grace us, our families with that desire. Being first Persian then Jewish, but some hidden Moslem. (Who cares) knowing you all are followed in Iran. Please this season show the world by great example that we aren't enemies. In any way. I live in Israel, and sometimes I want to go to the women covered in chadoor and hug them. I feel no different. The only time I feel different is when I come with love and hit back with destruction. I had no choice. I was born into it. You know. Ask anyone who knew me. If in the day, we would have met...it's unreal the similarities. All I great ways. Shalom, salaam.... Tania
Wow Tania thank you for your lovely post. If only there were more beautiful souls like YOU on earth..... :)
GG and Omid are so loud and annoying. Spoiled brats and they should respect others dining in the same restaurant and you for inviting them to dinner.
You are a little out there I must say but at least you know how to behave.
You Rock... You are one creative, talented individual. GG is violent, vicious person. Dont waste your time or enery on garbage and BRAVO please kick her off the show she serves no purpose to an otherwise great group of people! Best Wishes and much success ASA!!!
Asa, you are one of my favorite people to watch. I also love learning about other cultures and although the show is superficial, to get viewers I imagine, there is enough to keep me interested. I think you are beautiful, fascinating and talented.
hi asa, i love you. But i don't really understand how someone can afford a 100,000 mercedes, and complain about their finances? I'm not judging but it is kind of bizarre.
Asa, you are by far my FAVORITE. You are truly an artist and I love your energy. I hope your new projects take off and you get the attention and recognition you deserve. I loved your mixed media work and your photography. Best of luck! Keep it real and do not change! You are the best thing on Shahs of Sunset.
Asa I think you are awesome for pursuing your dreams and keeping it real. I totally get what you meant by the comment about Omid's nose but he obviously is not proud of it or is too drunk to understand anything! I love that you are you, without giving into societal pressures of looking more mainstream. I don't want to start bashing people but I can't watch this season. I can't give any of my attention to a show with characters like GG on it. It really takes away from all of your (other cast mates) stories and her and her BF's behavior/commentary last night was just disgusting. She is in a low low place right now and the hate she exhibits towards the world is not to be tolerated. I hope next season Bravo will get rid of her because I would like to learn more about Persian culture and continue to watch. Reza is awesome too! Maybe the guy Mike went to see (wife had a babyshower) can be the next addition. His story was incredible and interesting!
You did the right thing Asa. That guy was a rude, annoying asshole. Disrespectful too. Keep it Asa. Ur one of my favorites.
My GIRL!!!!! You are beautiful INSIDE and OUT!!!! I love you for being you, just real!! That realness shines out- something that others may jealous of!
Hi Asa u r great one of my fav shahs! Omg that guy was soo annoying and his laugh was crazy loud lol Stay real and careful with your money
Evil GG and that disgusting man deserve each other. Mike was awesome. Love Reza! I feel Lilly will be a very interesting addition but hope she grows eyes on the back of her head aimed at GG.
OMG that guy was so annoying. I can't beleive GG was even at all interested. I thought she held herself higher then that.
At first i thought that was a mean comment, but now that you explained yourself i totally get it. I see the good person in you. I like GG but she's not that good of a person.
Asa, in my opinion, you come off very judgmental and disrespectful towards GG. On season one, you ended the season defending a friend of your that spoke out of place and got involved in things that were none of her business and then attacked your then friend GG. You did nothing to remain mutual, instead you clearly took a side and your friend attacked GG as if she had been warned about GG by you?!
Then, on the season 2 episode 1 dinner party, no matter how you try to sugar coat your remarks towards GG friend, you were disrespectful, rude, antagonizing, and a hypocrite. You were completely out of place. As I watched your mannerisms at the table, you also seemed to enjoy throwing out too many compliments towards your opinion of Lily being a "persian barbie"! Too bad you don't have the looks to be one huh? You just wanted to get under GG's skin and it back fired because she didn't care!!
Also, why are you in GG's business? Why do you care how involved she is in her business or not? For someone that has some talent and claims to be this visionary and friendly person. You seem to be just like GG! Only you do your harm in a low key manner. GG has been clear on her imperfections, but you have so much venom invested against her, that you don't know how to take the high road! After watching this first episode, you definitely do not come off righteous, you are a hater like so many other women in L.A.
Make peace with GG and practice what you preach!!
Always-Right sorry, you aren't always right. Asa could be judgemental, to a certain degree we all are. You are being judgemental of her in your comments. However, I think Asa and the others are calling GG out to hope she will step up to the plate and change her life around. It effects her to see someone behave so badly. Funny you ignore all the hate GG spewed towards Asa. Saying Asa looks like a man dressed like a woman is venomous. I don't know who you are but you will be one in the minority. Your interpretation of the events and how they were depicted is off at best. Notice everyone's else's blogs?
LolabellO Everyone is judgmental LolabellO! That was my point, the exception with ASA is that she is on television trying to portray herself as righteous, thats where she is being a hypocrite. Also, not one of GG's friends are calling her out. The only person attacking her is ASA. Furthermore, friends support and talk to each other even when they have differences, ASA is clearly attacking GG. You stated that GG stated that ASA "looked like a man" please, GG stated it after ASA made comments about GG. GG has clearly admitted to having anger issues and as a result acts immaturely, Asa doesn't need to put up with GG's antics, but she surely shouldn't react to circumstances in the manner that GG does, especially since she claims she is so above all the cattiness. I don't know who you are either, but FYI, I may be the minority within these comments, as Persians are in society, but I don't care because I don't need a flock, I can stand on my own. Whether you agree with me or not girlie, I am always right. Besides, all the commentators are probably most of ASA's friends, so I'm not taking anything personal. Thanks for your interpretation of things and good luck!
Always-Right LolabellO You're very confused. Only a very sick person would claim to ALWAYS be right. No one is perfect, not even you and I can easily say that without even knowing who you are.
NotAfraidofReality LolabellO I'm not confused. I simply call it as I see it. Stop the hating, attacking me isn't going to change my mind about the way ASA handled things. She was rude and disrespectful and then played victim when the drunk reacted. Why would anyone want to attack drunk people? I cal it S T U P I D!!!! Just ignore and remove yourself from the situation.
Always-Right I think you need to go back to season 1 and re watch that scene because that friend of Asa's first was not rude and was stating how she felt and then it was GG that took it to the rudest of places, said rude things to the girl and hit below the belt after the fact.
bombshell8124 Always-Right Bombshell8124, Asa's guest got involved in a conversation that had nothing to do with her. It was the first time Asa's friend met the group and she got involved in a conversation that GG was having with MJ. I watched it several times as Bravo has been re-airing the episodes.
@Always-Right Totally agree with you!! She didn't own what she said and is a total hypocrit!!!
Asa you are DOPE point blank period!!! By far my favorite one on the show. You are genuine and down to earth and keep it real. I love that you are taking risks in your life. Very inspiring since i am at a point in my life now that i am also starting to take risks. Continue to be you. Also loved, loved, loved the big hoop earrings with your intial in the middle. If you wouldn't mind sharing who makes them that would be greatly appreciated. I would love to rock a pair.
Asa I know your gonna do great this season I already love your fashion and gypsy make up. I love how you have been trying to tell GG both nice ways and firm ways. I'm watching you princess!
Loved you last season and I know that I'm gonna love you this season! You have been the voice of reason however you don't take crap from anyone! Keep being you! People will hate on you because you follow your dreams and you've been successful and they lack those qualities!
Asa I think you are such a kind and open minded individual! loved you last season. only thing i don't get is that you got mad at GG for calling you names (which i do NOT think was called for) but according to the previews, you called GG a toothpick with a wig (kinda funny actually) but still name calling. no? Idk why GG is made to be the villain so much?
So Asa, tell us how you really feel about GG. Seriously, you nailed her in this blog and she really had it coming. I'm shocked that she's made it 30 years without someone knocking her block off.
GG is reckless and clueless. If anything, she does not like herself. She has obviously been over protected and spoiled for too long. She's hasn't approached the right person yet as far as putting up with her attitude. Her anger therapy sessions are not working. And what is she so angry about. She's had everything handed to her. I can understand her sister's frustration. Asa, jealous, please. Asa is a woman of substance who is very comfortable with who she is. GG., can't say the same.
