A Glimpse of GG's Crazy Side

Lilly explains why she wanted to give GG a chance and why she's not practicing law any time soon.

I can't believe how quickly the season is winding down! Episode 9 beings with a conversation between Asa and Reza where he manages to convince her to come to a family dinner to give GG an opportunity to apologize for what happened. Asa is hesitant about attending, but she couldn't resist Reza's charm and agrees to go.

Next, you guys get to see the very first time GG and I ever hung out. We had met briefly at the group dinner where Reza introduced me to everyone, but I hadn't seen or really spoken to her since. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about how GG and I would get along. I had heard about how violent she got with Asa, and I had also heard a lot about her short-fused temper. I am a very non-violent person, and I don't surround myself with those that have a tendency towards violence. With that said, I am a very open-minded person, and I don't judge people based off of what other people say about them, therefore I wanted an opportunity to get to know GG for myself.

I must admit, I had a great time. GG was very warm and friendly towards me. She told me that she has reached out to Asa and really wants a chance to explain herself and apologize for her actions. I really hope these two women will be able to work things out because I do feel bad for how much the group has ostracized her this summer.

I can't believe Asa is recording a song with Andy!! Anyone that knows anything about Persian music knows exactly who Andy is. He is a Persian Pop Icon. I am super excited for Asa and I think she is going to kill it at Persia-Palooza!

You guys met my beautiful friend Raumak a few episodes back at dinner, now you get to meet her husband, Neama. I was a little surprised when he called me and asked if he could stop by my office to discuss something. Neama is a very busy, hard-working attorney. If he is taking the time out of his day to come speak to me, it must be important.

When Neama tells me he thinks I should give up my company and return to the practice of law I am shocked. I value Neama's opinion and have an incredible amount of respect for him, but is this a joke? My partner Jennifer Stano and I have built Have Faith Swimgerie (HaveFaith.com) from the ground up to become a million dollar company. After all my hard work and success, it is extremely hurtful to hear him put me down for doing what I love.

As I stated, Neama is very respected in the legal world (Harvard Law graduate!), but this is my passion, these are my dreams, and this my life. I love you Neama, but for the first time, I don’t think I’ll be taking your advice.

The episode ends with a dinner party at Sammy's house. The purpose of the dinner is to afford GG and opportunity to apologize to Asa, and to try and being mending relationships with the group. The dinner starts out great, so I’m really hopeful.

Things go very sour very quickly. Before I even have a chance to get started on my plate of food, there's yelling and screaming! I’'m not exactly sure what all the tension is about between Mike and Omid, but this is crazy. I don't say a word and I'm trying my best not to get involved even though I'm sitting directly in between the boys. The next thing I know, people are standing up and threatening each other, so much for anything constructive happening tonight!

Me, Asa, and Reza just sit there on the other side of the table watching in horror. We are all three so sick and tired of all the tension and drama. Wait, did GG just grab a KNIFE? OK, I think I just saw a glimpse of the crazy side of GG that everyone has been telling me about. Resorting to violence is NEVER OK, I am in shock at this point.

Tune in next week to see what happens at dinner.

MJ: Jessica Blamed the Wrong People

MJ dishes on her sexy boudoir photoshoot, and gives us the 411 on the reconciliation dinner that turned into a confrontation.

I always get inspired reading about people who never give up and land on their feet in hard times. We can't grow without leaving our comfort zone. This season I am heavier than ever, about 40lbs more since the show premiered. Opting to do a photoshoot during that time is about confidence and creating new rules in the media's definition of what a woman "should" look like. Every woman should learn what makes her feel sexy. For me, it's a fresh blow out or a deep, dark tan. I'm sickened by the #BodyShaming women do to one another. We are long overdue to change that. This photoshoot was a step in that direction. I hope it inspires women to get off the side lines and live life now. Let's stop waiting to reach that "goal weight" before we consider ourselves worthy. By the way, even when we reach what we imagine as that "magic place," most times we discover there's always more we want. That's got to stop. I want both men and women to stop beating themselves up for who they are today and live life right now. You can still take the dressing on the side; no one is judging you either way.

This second lie detector test was the real deal. I guess those older machines from the first test are considered antiques. Golnesa got the redemption she deserved. I understand her actions in the past have called her character in question, and that is why I believe she knew that one person's word against another was not going to cut it. I think that if she were lying or making up the story, she would have never agreed to take a polygraph test in the first place. 

During the reconciliation dinner I felt that Jessica's behavior derailed any possibility of reconciling. She even told Mike before leaving the house that night that she didn't want to have anything to do with "these people." Well, I feel badly for anyone who gets deceived by someone she loves, but coming at us with entitled, superior, misdirected anger is her digging her own grave for both Mike and her future. She lost allies in us that night. She blamed the wrong people. She even made herself look like an accomplice. I actually thought she was helping Mike cover up the truth so she could be sure and get on with her wedding plans.
