GG Needs Therapy

Mike is surprised Lilly was so judgmental, and thinks GG needs to calm down.

I'm a little shocked that Lilly threw me under the bus like that. . .yes I drank, but I was the one who put the kibosh on the situation with Omid at dinner! She should be more grateful. And Reza should have stuck up for me. Yes she is the new girl, but Reza should not be embarrassed of his friends -- well except for GG and Omid. I was even embarrassed over their behavior.

My date was Jessica was awesome! We have an amazing relationship. We laugh, we talk, and share a lot of the same philosophies! I am so lucky to have found her. . .she's one in a million. I think it would be cool for my parents to see me with a girl like her. Educated, class, respectful, pretty, and sweet. Shabbat dinner would be a great first time for everyone to meet. . .I'm gonna set that up.

OK, now on to the the pool party at Solati's house.  I thought it would be a good idea if I took over as the bartender. The chick at the bar was making the shots way too big! You know what happens when you mix alcohol and this crew.

It didn't take long for Omid's nose to become the topic of conversation again. This was bound to get ugly! GG looked like a psycho. . .you can see the anger in her eyes. Meanwhile Asa looks cool and unaffected by GG's chihuahua-like barks. Asa would have knocked her block off. Good thing I got involved and tried to calm GG down before she got hurt. What a disgraceful way to act. She needs therapy!

MJ: "I Finally Opened My Heart to Love"

MJ dishes on her new man.

Last year in Turkey, I was blind-sided in the best way; I had a revelation, a new found desire to become a mother someday. I am very traditional when it comes to marriage and children in one household and under one roof. That is my dream and deepest hope. I have accomplished success in my career and happiness in every other area in my life. I finally opened my heart to love. I became vulnerable to find love. I met Charlie via Facebook/Tinder. I didn't "swipe right" on him, but he screen grabbed my profile, and messaged me on Facebook one night while I was at my place with Reza and Adam. They drilled Charlie with a series of questions about "what would make you a good candidate for MJ." Suffice it to say, he passed the test, took me to a beautiful, romantic restaurant on our first date where the conversation flowed, and so did the chemistry.

I'm so glad to have met Asifa last year, and even happier she has joined our group. My first impression of Asifa was that she was very polite, prim, pretty, and cordial. As time went on, I began to discover that there are many layers to Asifa. We are a complicated group of people and I look forward to getting to know her on a deeper level, the way I know the rest of my friends.

At Asa's house for the fire jumping ceremony, we all noticed Mike engrossed by Jessica eating a piece of shrimp, and I called him out. To me it was sexy to see a couple turned on by one another. But when I said what everyone else was thinking, Mike and Jessica looked shocked at what I had said, which was surprising to me. I think that once you are in a serious relationship, cheeky conversation topics are not at all off limits, and for us, the best thing about our friendship is sharing good spirited laughs with each other.


Woah, Nelly! Bobby was in the room for less than five minutes when Mike immediately picked a fight with him? As I watched this unfold, I saw how high Mike's nerves were running... It was very awkward. I attribute it to all the fresh, new, successful, alpha-male energy in the room. The tension in the room was undeniable, and unfortunately it got the best of him. Mike and Bobby have some history, and within seconds of Bobby getting there it all came to a head. This is a bad start for both of them, and it spilled over into a divide between us all.


Here's to a fruitful 2015!
