Asa regrets calling MJ a pill-popper, but she does think she needs to change her ways.

Our history has been so repetitive. It's been a series of Golnesa being rude and disrespectful towards me and me understanding and forgiving her. I don't believe her anymore, and I need to get out of this pattern. From the very first time I met her at that group dinner at IIV (Season 1, Episode 1), where she jumped down my throat and called me ghetto and told me to shut up for NO REASON WHATSOEVER, through all the other incidents with her being absolutely rude, condescending, and aggressive, I always had compassion for her and always let it slide thinking "She needs help. It's cool, etc." and thinking it will change. I always was a good friend to her through all her nastiness towards me, but instead of things getting better, things escalated to what they did! Enough is enough.

Golnesa doesn't have any real interest in evolving, which is alright. This is her life and it's certainly not easy for any one of us. We are all on our path and going through different things. Nobody is perfect. But there must be a genuine desire for progress.

We all have a choice in who we have in our lives. This last incident is where I had to draw the line for myself. I really don't want that type of energy in my life anymore.

I truly wish her the best. I forgive her. But I am moving on.

The family meeting was called because (Reza and) I did not want to go on vacation with somebody who just attacked me. Golnesa went too far last time. We both feel very strongly about physical violence, and it is no joke.
The last thing I want to do is go to Mexico with an unstable, aggressive, violent person. And if you were me, you would feel the same way. MJ herself said to Golnesa's face that if she had attacked her, she would never want to be in the same room with her again. But MJ is shocked that I don't want to go on vacation with Golnesa? Come on now. There is one person to blame for Golnesa's exclusion in the trip, and that is Golnesa.
