It's a while since I've been able to blog because frankly the UNDERHANDED betrayal I've had to watch unfold every week by Reza and Asa has been the lowest display of human interaction I've seen among my "friends." I've had to sit by (along with you, the viewers) and watch Reza spin a web of mean-spirited, deceitful lies, and rumors just to but put me down for his own gain. Since I'm catching up, I'll limit my comments to things important things, since after all, this is my life that I am living and watching be unfairly disparaged.
After the pool party, Asa describes an "epic" event Reza missed. Asa's words speak volumes about her true colors. A genuine person wouldn't be all smiles from the pool party all the way to her re-telling it to Reza. Asa calling me "two-faced taking the side of whomever is standing next to me" is 100 percent inaccurate because everyone saw that I was standing next to BOTH of them.
Until the day I die, I will ALWAYS believe that Asa was rude to Omid at dinner AND patronizingly dismissive toward GG when GG tried to talk to her at the pool party. Also, until the day I die, I will stand firm that physical violence is unacceptable, wrong, and never a solution to a problem. This isn't an issue about taking sides, its about helping two friends resolve an issue.
MJ you iz crazy gurl....truly...BUT I adore you! I think you are beautiful and very funny! Keep your head up!
MJ you are beautiful ! they way you handles yourself on the reunion was incredible. you gained so much respect and admiration. Your "friends" are discusting and really lame. They claim you are fake ....hello eveyone has extension, lashes, boobs etc. you are just the only one that looks all natural. They say you are 40 who cares and everyone lies when they hit 40 and I am guessing they are close behind. plus you look 28 You have a great career and a real one....unlike the swimsuit line funded by a Black American Express card, or the Diamond H20...really? or the pop career JOKE or the house Asa has gifted by her loaded ex-boyfirend.......Lilly and Asa = Hustler. Reza unbeliebabe maybe you can forgive but please do not evey forget. Remember you are incredible
MJ, I find you a beautiful person inside and out. You are a true friend and Reza should be proud to call you friend. He should be ashamed for what he has done to you this last season and on the reunion show. I find ASA a great big Fake!!!!! GG needs a little guidance but with help she will grow into a great woman. But ASA is ugly inside. I find Lilly the outsider who trys to hard and justs needs to lay low and allow you and your friend to slowly bring her into the group. You have given your everything to Reza for way to long, He is the classic gay friend that takes and takes. If he was so worried about you then why was he pouring booze down your throat in Mexico. These issue if true are to be dicussed in private, not in front of a camera, not after 25 years of a friendship. Mike is cute, but he is easily moved to the other siide.
You are the cast member with the most class, you don't fight with others. You just leave the area. You stand up for your friends and speak your mind. Lilly came into your group with the largest log up her ass. Bo ho about her boyfriend. If you can't hook a man after 10 years, then you have a problem. Just move on already.
My wishes for you MJ is to find peace with your mother, whatever that means to you. That may mean letting her be the way she is and you realizing you are more than that. I had to do that with my father, It took me Serving in The United State Air Force, getting a BA in Accounting and owning my own home before he would understand that I was ok without him telling me what to do with my life every second of every day. I admire you for the way you just accept your body and embrace the curves. You are one hell of a woman. You have help me with my self image.
You see I have breast cancer and have had my breast removed. I am going through reconstruction. It is harder than they tell you. For me there have been many steps and I have many to go.
Watch you helps me get through it, because you are so strong, Thanks for being you and helping me without even knowing it.
Keep it up

sharon.lewiswaites I wish you all the best in your recovery. I'm so sorry for what you have to go through. I hope you have lots of people of love around you.
sharon.lewiswaites Sharon, It speaks volumes about the kind of woman you are ... reaching out to nurture MJ in your own time of hardship. Thank you for spreading your love and thank you for serving us.
MJ after watching the reunion you need to stop trying to be friends with Reza and Asa, and Lilly can kick rocks no one cares about her anyway. MJ work on yourself and your business. And please learn and accept that your mother is who she is and move on, I have a mother just like her and I refuse to let her negativity affect me. Get healthy mentally and physically and live a good life being true to yourself. You are a sweet person who deserves to be treated better and not be bullied by anyone. I know 20 years is a long time but Reza is not your friend especially if he has taken it upon himself to reveal your deepest secret, he is scum for doing that!
You are the reason I watch the show - love your of personality - Asa and (maybe the diamond water) are the evil on this show - this whole diamond water con shows that Asa is the con - hate when Reza buys her BS
MJ - You are beautiful inside and out
Asa is the root of GG's and your friendship with Reza. If Reza just cut communication with Asa for about a month and allow you all to mend your 20 year friendship I am sure it will all work out. Asa is very dominate and controlling and Reza doesn't see her for the wicked and evil person she honestly is.
I admire the love that you continue to show for your true friendship with Mike & Reza. I admire you for sincerely apologizing to Lilly and her accepting your apology.
We all have some issues ...... Asa is rotten and evil to the core!!!!!! Asa has been jealous of GG's your relationship with Reza and it is so easy for her to harp on your flaws and pounce, yes I said pounce on the negativity of your problems/past prolems. I admire you and respect you as a real woman because you acknowledged on national TV your mistakes and announced to the world your mistakes. I cried with you!!! While you were apologizing and acknowledging your mistakes, Asa was lurking on the sideline smirking and gloating; smug or malicious, satisfaction; as the evil person she is. If Reza and Mike just sit back and watch the tapes/shows without Asa, they will see her for the wicked and evil person she really is. Continue to be the true friend you are and continue to be 35 or whatever age you want to. I am 35 and will be 35 until the day I die.
God bless my father and may he rest in peace....my father proclaimed to be 16 until the day he passed. I am my fathers daughter. Continue To Be You!!!! I noticed when Reza spoke of his father you sincerely cried, but Asa never teared up.
An old saying is "beauty is skin deep and ugly is to the bone". In Asa case, ... evil is to the core of her very existence.
MJ prev quote s beautiful! We love you! You'e the friend we would want...we love GG and Omid too but you're the most beautiful inside and out....opefully, Asa and Mike can learn from you (not to be SO judgemental....)...Don't ever change...you're wonderful
MJ, I'm new to the world of 'Shahs', but I see how very personally the fans take each and everyone's actions. We don't see everything that goes on when the cameras are off, and we judge what we see, heavily edited though it is. You are a gentle spirit, and very sensitive, and it hurts my heart to see so many tears from your eyes. Just some caring advice: Try to distance yourself (not completely) from those who've hurt you, enough so that you can begin to build yourself up and strengthen your emotions; Pills will only take you DOWN. I know this because I see a bit of myself in you. You are hurting, but you've got to stay focused on who you know yourself to be! You are courageous enough to show love even to those who are acting negatively, and so you draw the ire of some around you. This bullshit will pass, and you will all come full circle. You all have genuine love for each other. People just don't want to see happen what they can SEE coming if you don't stabilize yourself emotionally...Please, please stay away from the 'scrips. Trust me, your strength will shine through, and you will be better for it! Much love to you!
MJ wish you blogged more but with that said. I finally saw the last show tonight and it was so good to see your shopping trip with your Mother and how BOTH of you were trying so hard to be supportive of the other. I lost my Mum over a year ago and we weren't close during the earlier years of my life, but as I grew older, we did get closer and by the time she passed, we were the best of friends. I miss her and I know by the way both you and your Mother were with each other, you will have a good relationship as time goes on. Plus, you are going out with that cutie from your birthday party. What a surprise that was! I hope you are still with him and that you are happy. God Bless, take care and don't give up on your Mother or your new relationship.
Oh my dear 'Precious 'Persian', where have you been??!! You're being quite missed by your MANY fans out here! This year has had to have been extremely hard on you tho, & please know there are so very many people who truly care. I can't even imagine the extent of trouble & heartache you've been experiencing during this season. You've so sweetly & graciously put yourself out there in an honest & REAL way, obviously assuming your "friends" were doing the same. We have watched their attempt to absolutely destroy you in your business, your relationships & even your moral character. I cannot begin to tell you how badly I feel for you. I have so enjoyed getting to know you, your sweet personality, the loyality you show to family & friends, your delightful sense of humor, & especially sharing your cultural lifestyle, history & background with us! I'm a great grandma & really have learned so much from you! I truly pray that God richly blesses your life with all of the same happiness, peace, love, understanding & joy that you so generously give in all of your days. I really hope to see you next season, but if some of the same castmates are actually asked back, I for one would certainly understand, I also wouldn't watch either tho! Best wishes to you MJ!
Mj your a favorite even my favourite but why are you not bothered blogging? You get paid to be on the show would it be so hard to take 10mins out of your day to write a few sentences!!
MJ, This is a beautiful pic of you. I wish you love, peace and lasting happiness. Questions: I love and want a dress that you wore, I think, on your birthday. It was gold with a sheer lining at the neckline. Where is it from/designer??
Everyone is manipulated by ASA you are not the devil. Your friends are just morons who are to blind to see what's really going on. ASA has fought with you, MJ and Obid, they are to dumb to see it. Got your back GG
Keep your head up and stay away from Reza...he is not a true friend. Keep being true to yourself...respect yourself and you will get the the love you need from people who truly love you.
Hi MJ. There wasn't a blog subject on this but I wanted to thank you for showing the difficult relationship between you and your mom. I have a very similar relationship with my mom. I actually learned a lot from the therapy session you had with her and it's help me to understand why my own mother acts the way she does. Thank you so much for sharing.
Mj you are beautiful! Reza & Asa are low grade back stabbers. Asa is just jealous because sweetheart you are a star from season 1 & she wants your posistion, she will never have the fans love. Reza is your friend but is confused about what loyalty is, thanks to his upbringing... Ijs. Make amends with Gg she needs you & you and Gg should get your own show!! Be strong Mj own your beatuty we love you just da way you are, big boobs small waist long pretty hair & with a pretty face to match! Love yourself because we love you girl
You are right they both are backstabbers,and I think that Aza is a phoney! the only one who really cares about all of them is MJ
I'm becoming more of a fan, MJ. I like all of the cast, but I am beginning to dislike Asa and like you more. So what if you like to party? Asa comes across as phony and judgmental, but you come across as more "real." Looking forward to seeing you stand up for what YOU believe.
like why are you so real? you're my fav MERCEDEZ and i don't even have to lease you ... OMG when your mom bounced from the restaurant and then walked back in i almost rolled over in my grave cause you know i died, she is TOO PERSIAN!!
MJ, I hope to see you voicing your opinion in the reunion! Asa is always shutting you down and doesn't allow anyone to have a single thought, and Reza is starting to do the same, last season everyone loved those two, somehow it got to their head and now they think they are all righteous and they can't do wrong in the eyes of anyone. Stand up for yourself, they both bullies.
You are the second reason I watch this show. I agree with you and its hard watching Reza and Asa being mean to you! Right on about Asa to Omid
MJ you and GG keep it real and speak how you feel. Lily needs a cheeseburger cause her brain cells are dying from lack of food and oxygen. Real friends dont treat each other the way these so called friends have treated you. Your real and own it so ignore the haters they are jealous. Lily thinks she is all that she needs to get real hair and a personality.
Jealous Mean Girl.
"We Persians are clannish and rarely let people in, so someone has to vet Lily."
Oh, BS. You were just jelous that Reza had a new friend.
What I liked about Lily was that she stood her ground and said that no one could ever replace MJ in Reza's life, and that she wasn't trying to do that. She was just a new friend, that's all. She wasn't trying to get rid of MJ.
ginabean have you found out about MJ's red monokini she wore in Cabo? I've been trying to find out who makes that suit but have not had any luck.
when u were on WWHL with kenya moore why were u interrupting almost every one of her sentences. stay in your land. were you drunk then too. and it was babble. what is wrong with you
MJ - you are a sweetheart. I wanted to hug you after the pounce you took at the dinner when you opened up about your therapy to the crew. Therapy has saved myself and my only daughter. I'm proud of you.
I use to like Asa but she is showing another side that isn't so nice. Lilly is annoying and has her nose up in the air. Not a good quality - Reza, I think Reza is finally coming to his senses. Not sure why Reza became a "bully" but I miss the old Reza. I do think Reza is changing his ways however. You and Reza have a history and you need him as much as he needs you. Friends are important in our lives.
MJ you and Mike are my favorites !!! love the support you gave to reza and his family !!! i want have you as my friend !!!!!!!!!!!!! touch my heart this episode
MJ You need to get real with yourself, girl! I saw Vicidine, and Valium, rolling out of that little green pill bottle! And, to have come up with that lame excuse that they belonged to Pablo was ludicrous! It was quick thinking on your part, but your friends had already been made aware of you pill popping and that was all the proof they needed. For Asa to apologize to YOU the next morning was to me hypocritical and disingenuous! The way you walked out, leaving some of your possessions behind, shows me that you are spaced-out, Baby! Get some help! Oh, and a word to the wise: You shouldn't be drinking the amount you do AND popping pills at the same time- it's very dangerous!
withak What are you talking about?!! Vicodin really!! Yes Vicodin is the correct spelling not Vicidine! That alone shows you shouldn't speak on this as you show you have no knowledge of what you claim you saw being that you can't even spell the name of the medication correctly that you claim you can identify so well. Honey you know nothing on this matter! Everyone that works in pharmacy like myself would disagree and say you have no clue. Vicodin is the size of a horse pill or large vitamin, and not small and round but large and oblong. I would know since in my profession I count them all day. Know before you speak.
I think that Reza should not be sneacking around and looking on someone bag is not his business ,with friend like him ,who needs enemies!them make fun of her they ridiculize her that is not right I respect my friends enough to get respect from them too
You are the best one on this show! Reza is manipulative and doesn't want to hear or see anyone else's side but his own. And how he loves to plead he's the victim! You are a good friend to all of them. You will forgive Reza, because that's who you are,....but you are a better person then most of us! You are right, Asa was rude, Reza threw you under the bus for the new girl (who sounds like Fran Dreshler) and the two of them are really nasty/mean this season. You all should have had an intervention with GG instead of excluding her from activities, that was a really lousy way to deal with a friend.
Watching Asa is a stomach turner. She is so calculating in her actions, she makes sure she can be quoted being "supportive," but her need to keep making negative digs and negativity brewing in reza's mind is obvious. She should learn from her blatant dislike of GG; often the qualities we strongly dislike in others are things we don't want to see in our own behaviors. She is a joke. She would be thrilled to ice you and GG out, then lily would be next. I hope you stay above her antics and don't fall for her fake, manipulative apologies.
I love you MJ! you are the most unpretentious person, and sincere, on the show. i am so addicted to Shahs!
Reza: Do you like swirl?
Reza: Do you like rice:
MJ: Pppppfffffftttttt!! (huge scoff) NO!
I'm sure the Asian community is so happy with that.
cinchy I thought I was the only person that noticed that! Thank you! Definitely makes me less sympathetic to her cause of finding a man that will love her the way that she is. I started writing "despite her looks" but edited it for meanness since 1) I don't mean it to be mean, and 2) I'm sure many people find her attractive. Her huge scoff was something her brain should have edited out.
Rice means Asian.
Swirl means of two or more ethnicities- white and black, black and asian, white and asian or all three.
MJ, I feel for you. Unfortunately in this group of people there are a lot of followers who are following the loudest person. Asa can be as loud and as cruel as she wants to be and they will continue to follow her around like lost puppies. The only way this dynamic can really change is if those said followers find their own voices and no longer allow a mean person to dictate their behavior. I hope you find happiness and love. You do deserve it.
MJ, you should start your own line of accessories. I like the jumpsuits you wear also.
Totally agree with your blog. You tried to be a good friend and not take sides but help them work through the issue. Unfortunatly, it meant they trashed you in their interviews...so sad. I hope you can find true friends and mend the relationships that are worth mending.
