The Party Misfit

Lilly discuess why she doesn't pour alcohol down her throat and how MJ looks great for her age.

Round two of Mexico! The dinner was so tense, so it’s nice to unwind in the hot tub. While we unwind, Sammy and MJ party it up at the club. Sammy and MJ are the perfect duo, and it looks like they had a great time.

The next day, Mike took us all out on his uncle’s yacht. And, by yacht, I mean super yacht!!! I had the most incredible time. We swam in the ocean, we soaked up the sun, and we had a beautiful lunch on the balcony of the boat. I couldn’t of had a more perfect day. Now this is my idea of fun. No fighting, no drunken disrespectful comments, just fun in the sun!

My bikini and Asa’s bikini are both from my swim-line, Have Faith Swimgerie (HaveFaith.com). I’m rocking the Sailor Barbie bikini (which is sold out, but will be available in March), and Asa is rocking our very sexy Seductive Black Brazilian Bikini. I personally think Asa’s ass looks incredible in the bikini. I love curves on a woman, and I love a women that’s confident enough to flaunt them!!

Later that night, the Shahs decide to hit up the hottest nightclub in town, and when I say it was hot, I mean it literally. I’m sure you guys have noticed by now, I’m just not a partying kind of girl. I don’t let guys pour alcohol down my throat straight from the bottle, I don’t pop pills, I don’t make out with strangers, so an environment like a nightclub is just not for me. MJ is definitely the queen of this prom; rule your sweaty throne, honey! I’m off to bed.

After the club, while I’m sleeping the gang goes through MJ’s bag as Reza is still very concerned that MJ may have a substance abuse problem with prescription pills. They don’t get to the bottom of any alleged problem, but they do get to the bottom of her age, MJ is 40! Girl, you look great for 40, own it.

We have one last breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean before we head back to LA. It is the most beautiful, glorious day. Even though I may have been a misfit during the partying portion of the trip, I had an incredible time and I am very thankful for this experience and all the blessings in my life.

Back in LA, GG was busy throwing a launch party for her line. It looks to me like it was a real success. I personally know how stressful it is to throw an event, especially for something that has your name on it, so I applaud her for pulling it off. It is also refreshing to see she has decided to change her life and begin working, girl power!

That’s all for this week, see you all next week!

Ep 15: Nadine weighs in on Part 1 of the reunion.

Here’s the thing… The Shahs reunion reminded me of a Thanksgiving dinner gone wrong. Except there was no turkey (or Turkey for that matter), not a lot of wine, and certainly not a lot of peace.

You’d think since the reunion was a little more intimate, being over a dinner table where they all broke bread, it would be somewhat peaceful…well guess again. I think sitting in such close quarters was a recipe for disaster, with a few exceptions. One being the infamous buttery chocolate cwaasannnt. Hallelujah! It’s over, finally!

There was so much covered, that I’m going to only address a few highlights…

So let’s get started, shall we?

Let’s start with Lilly “No Friend Zone” Ghalichi. I kind of felt bad for her. I truly don’t know what is going to happen with her next season. As is, she’s not hanging out with the Shahs. I just don’t know how will she come back after this. I was shocked that Asa laid into Lilly more than Reza did. It was only a few episodes ago where Lilly told Reza that Asa was the better friend to her. And as I recall, Asa gave Lilly a cooking lesson teaching her to beat her meat. I get that some of the Shahs have beef with her, but the truth is that Lilly doesn’t mesh well with this group (except for GG as of late). Andy did leave it open-ended, asking Reza if Lilly makes a real effort if he’d take her back, and Reza said absolutely. If that were to happen, I suggest MJ learns GG’s hook method. She’ll need to hook with her fingers and her toes.

Now on to GG and MJ. When will these two frenemies NOT fight? It seems to be their “thing.” They’re like drunk sorority girls: “I love you. I hate you. I love you. I hate you. I need more to drink. You broke girl code. I want to wax my car with your t-ts. You assaulted my hat, so I’m going to call your mom. But I do love you.” All I have to say to that is, “You don’t need to go all tango on me!”

Speaking of getting all “tango,” how about GG storming off when Leila showed up -- only to be put in her place by the Shah bouncer? I hope she realizes that one drink isn’t going to make her problems or her sister go away. Thankfully the GG whisperer was able to put her in her place. The reality of GG and Leila’s situation is they have a classic case of Competitive Sister Syndrome. I think they’re both guilty: GG shouldn’t be so harsh with her words. And Leila should have been more mindful about her friendship with MJ. Just goes to show that sh-- runs deep when dealing with family matters. Let’s keep it classy, ladies! All I know is my ass would be grounded for life if I’d ever treated my brother the way these two girls treat each other.

 

Last, let’s talk about Reza and his ex-work husband, Mike. Andy called these two out -- they kissed and made up in the finale, but it looks like things have gone south since that peaceful workout scene. Reza is right and I’ve said it before, no one leaves a thriving career to start over. However, I don’t know the logistics of their deal, so I can’t comment on who’s right and who’s wrong. What I can comment on is IF Mike needs money for a ring, he probably shouldn’t have invested in a bus wrap. And Reza SHOULD have maybe showed Mike the ropes a little more. Selling homes is not an easy job, you have to put in a lot of legwork -- it’s not a get rich quick type business. Mike said he loves Reza like a brother, but “he’s such an ---hole.” These two guys are becoming MJ and GG 2.0. They should all just get a room! One for their bodies and one for their egos.

I can’t wait for next week when Vida joon pays us a visit. I hope they give her the memo that there are no crocodiles in the San Fernando Valley.
