Mo-cedes, Mo problems!!! LOL
I love Mexico! Weather, water, and wackiness. . .our crew indulges in all of it. I'm so glad I could hook up this sexy mega yacht to ease the tension between Asa, MJ and Lilly. It was an amazing day on a $10 million+ boat. Then to top it off with a crazy night of partying. We shut down that club. Danced, drank, smoked hookah, and laughed the night away. Well at least most of us did.
Lilly, the princess needs to let lose and live a little. This is MEXICO NOT MEXICAN'T! MJ thank you for picking up Lilly's slack in the rock star portion of the trip. We got home and Reza decides it would be a good idea to go through MJ's purse. . .BAD idea dude! My mom has imbedded in my mind that a man never goes through a woman's purse.
Friends accept friends the way they are. They don't dump them or try to change them. All of you could have spoken to GG and set somee ground rules. This would be the 3rd event she wasn't invited to. If you don't want to be friends with GG then say so, stop torturing her. Lilly shouldn't have to get drunk and act trashy to be accepted (that's MJs job). She wasn't rude (you and MJ were) she just excused herself. That's class. You, on other hand were classless for not accepting her for who she is. Certainly, your friend Reza knew that Lilly isn't a club-hopper. Love you Mike, but you were wrong.
I was proud of Golnesa too. This is the side of her that she needs to embrace and mature. As rude as it was of all of you to UNINVITE someone, it worked out for the best- for GG. I hope that through reviewing these episodes you are able to see some of the plain mean behavior coming out of these ladies... and man. It's a shame; come together and build eachother up.
Mike, you surprised me! I already thought you were a really nice guy. But since I thought you and Lilly would make a pretty couple, I thought you would go for it, or at the very least not see through her BS. But you turned out to be the man I thought you were-a MENSCH!! yay!
Mike, I'm really enjoying you this season. Unlike Asa and Reza, you're actually a really good friend. You support MJ when she needs it instead of "outting" her on national television. I can't believe Reza went through her purse. And I was very disgusted when Reza laughed out loud when Asa said MJ's mom had issues or was crazy. How is that funny? He's an evil soul.... When Reza was having issues with his father who was there to support him? MJ. I guess that support doesn't go both ways.
MJ brings pills belonging to her dog all the way to Mexico? I don't think so. Any woman knows that the small clutch she was using in Mexico couldn't possibly be her everyday bag in LA. She didn't 'forget' that her dog's pills were in there. She took the pills from her LA bag to bring to Mexico, on purpose. You are choosing to ignore addictive behavior. At the very least, the fact that she took Ambien for such a short flight should raise your eyes a bit.
Yes, Lilly should have loosened up. But I'm sure she still doesn't feel secure in the group yet, and feels that she needs to keep her wits about her. Or, she really doesn't drink. Can't you respect her choices, like you respect MJ's? I don't think drunk and sloppy is so much better than sober, do you?
@whammus Trust me, if MJ were addicted she would have brought more than 4 pills in her clutch and would've taken more than 1 ambien for the plane. True addicts need much higher doses to even feel normal, let alone get high.
SourCandyxoxo This is so true. As a recovering addict myself (in my case, it was narcotic pain pills), I feel very passionate about the accusations flying around about MJ. I have seen nothing to indicate that she has a problem with pills and for her friends to put it out there is so very destructive. Even if it turns out to be true, they should have talked to her in private!!
elicat SourCandyxoxo Very proud of your recovery! In my field of work I see many people dealing with addiction to prescription narcotics so I always have great compassion to the ones struggling with it and even more love to hear of the ones that have overcome it!! And as a Pharmacy tech you are right in your points! I looked at those pills well on camera and being that I count them and have to be able to identify them (especially controlled substances) I saw none other that what looked to be in fact 2mg generic Valium which is the smallest dose commonly given for small pets. No narcotic pain pills, xanax, or anything else for that matter. Again very proud of you elicat :)
whammus With all due respect you have no idea what you are talking about. Ambien is very short acting. Giving 5 hours of sleep at the most but even then when woken up you function fine. On a short flight many people take it. Also many people that have pets with epilepsy or nervous conditions often are given or request a spare bottle from the vet to carry with them around with a few emergency tablets of the medication while there pets are with them in case of emergency and leave the other bottle at home. I don't think she thought let me take his medication to Mexico! I think it was just already in her purse and it went with her. Much like in pharmacy we often get request for spare bottle for children's emergency as needed medication.
Un-inviting GG was really lame. Don't let your "friends" give you ultimatums. Their "it is us or her" is about control and you gave it to them. They are tring to shun her which is really immature. Your response should have been - stay home if you don't feel comfortable. Obviously GG was there for you and willing to go and deal while the other two's support is conditional. What a shame.
Hey. I think ur great. Especially appreciating women with curves like Asa I am Jewish and would love to know if u know people in Michigan of Persian descent. I am dying to go to a Persian Shabbat dinner or holiday. How do u celebrate Passover ? I wish I was in California again. I'd make u guys invite me!!!!! Please let me know if there is a Persian synagogue here or where I could go to meet Persian Jews. Dshencopp@aol.com. Thanks for showing our people in such a great light. Thank reza too. Shalom, Deb
I usually don't take issue with Mike but I will say I think he is easily talked into a follower position Reza and Asa. He said in that episode for the cabo meeting that he doesn't take sides and that he is a peacemaker, yet a few blogs ago he said MJ needs to stop playing ping pong and pick a side already*cough* contradiction!
Finally, all of you are beginning to see what a drag her high-ness Lily is. Sorry Mike, I worked for a yacht broker and that was no 10 million dollar yacht, and if your uncle paid that much, he go taken to the cleaner's.
You wabo-cabo turned out fun for all and seemed to be just what everyone needed. Next time leave Lily at home and take GG.
Mikey you and Lilly just need to take your relationship there! Curl her toes dude!!!! She may be a little uptight but she's missing her playa playa so called boyfriend. Help her out while that guy is out in Texas chasing other women. She needs a real man Mikey. Mohoemad is a hoe. He's never going to commit to her. Besides, the way you check Lilly out is driving me insane. Seems like you'd love to get in her panties. You two look hot together. Plus she's beyond wealthy that byatch is funky rich.
Hey Mike, I enjoyed all of you having a good time in Cabo. I feel this way about the drinking, you really put it away that's for sure, but you didn't step on anyone's toes, so who cares how much you drank! From what was shown, there was no swearing, people getting belligerent or hurt, falling out all over the place, driving recklessly under the influence, etc. And no, Lilly did not have to drink to have a good time, but she complained too much and was extremely judgmental about those who did. What was SHE thinking, that all of you were going to go all that way to Cabo just to sit around a pool, wear swimwear that you don't dare get wet 'cause it cost too much and sip on virgin kool-aid?!! Get real. She's too busy trying to look beautiful that she doesn't know how to let loose and have a good time. If that's her thing, she needs to just hang out with Coconut on her living room floor and be entertained by her! Good grief!!
What do you feel the difference is between prescription drug abuse and alcohol abuse? They are both addictive, mind/mood altering substances that can be destructive to your life and the life of those around you if abused. Visit an AA meeting if you think I'm wrong. It seems to me that someone that drinks as heavily as you do is in absolutely no position to judge. That places you in a huge glass house, my friend. You might want to keep an eye on yourself while you're keeping one on M.J.
Getting drunk and partying is what you do in Mexico! My 80 year old Grandpa took a shot of Patron to pay homage to Mexico! It doesn't matter how old you are, age shouldn't warrant any reason to not want to do what makes you happy. Mike you're my fav cast member and I would have tried to get Lilly to let loose too. Party on!
That shot of you on the bed looking lost - that should have scared you. A real man doesn't need to get bombed like that to have a good time. Instead of a young handsome guy having fun, you looked like a drunken old slob past his prime. I'm starting to wonder if the "Persian" community is happy seeing all you drunks representing them. You should have stood up for GG too. It was time for forgiveness. Reza would have gone anyway and so would Asa hole. Them two would never give up a free trip,
Who is the REAL one with the stick up their ass? YOU. Why can't Lilly just sit and watch? Why does she have to drink if she doesn't want to? You all get drunk and act all slobberly and have the nerve to critisize her because she wants to just watch? What...only YOU have rights?
It would be different if she was having fun while not drinking. But it was obvious she was not having fun and even complained. She was sort of a buzz kill. IMO
@zocola I agree...it makes me sick to see people on the other bravo shows tell the cast NOT to drink, they will tell each other you drink too much, act a fool....then these goobers tell Lilly...she must drink to fit in....maybe...just mayyyybe....she does not fit with them at all, and that is her way of breaking it them...or maybe, this season of sobriety will lead into her intoxication next season...you can bet there is a reason she stayed sober this season....she will be a breakout drunk the next.....i have to applaud Mike for listening to his mother about a womans purse....it sounds like his mom is a good influence on him, she must be an awesome mom to have her son actually remember her advice...so with the exceptiin of him getting wasted, he seems ok to me....the fact he listens to his mom tells me he is well grounded emotionally....
zocola He wasnt saying she had to drink, he was saying she didnt have to be up tight and judge the others who did. I think he respects her decision of not drinking but she doesnt need to come across as Wholly Art Thou either. She should have stayed home!! Or better yet go to her version of Cabo and get lost amongst the natives.
While I'm, no doubt, older than your own mom, as well as having used up ALL of my attempts to ever drink (successefully!) again, I so appreciate & enjoy watching you have so much RESPONSIBLE fun living your life! What attracted me to this show in the first place is that the "Shah's" lifestyle & relationships are very different & unique to most. That being said, we are still so very similar! A longtime, devoted, caring & loving friendship, an endless love & respect of family, the drive to be successful in our career choices, are totally relatable to most of us. (Sadly, NOT alot to many!!) It's been the BIG way you live your life that intrigues me! Every time they bring food out, I'm just blown away! And it all looks soooo good! (I pause the tv sometimes just to try & identify it all, lol!) I"m really glad Bravo found & brought you to us. It must be very difficult to find yourself suddenly subjected to millions of prying, judgemental people with all eyes on you! I'm sure what we see each week probably boils down to a few edited moments of what you are really about, so I may be totally off here! Just want you to know that I'm a huge fan of people like you who seem to have such intregity & compassion when dealing with the type situations I've seen you in this season. Please remember, we ALL have opinions, (of course, we know what they say about those!) but forever it will only be yours, your God's, & those who matter most to you, that will speak to your true character! Good luck & God bless!!!
Don't you all think you're a little old to be in clubs that drunk? Seriously I learned to handle my alcohol by age 21. I think you all need a lot of growing up to do. Yes Lilly was about as exciting as cardboard but you invited her!! Shouldn't you entertain ALL your guests? I'm about the same age as you that would have been a trip of a nightmare...........GROW UP!
bpster corection.... Reza invited her not Mike. So Reza and his new found BFF Asa should have entertained her. Oh wait they did by how they treated MJ at dinner.
Mike, I like that you believe MJ regarding the pills and that you are proud of GG. But it made me sad that you uninvited GG on the Cabo trip. I know that was hard for you and you should not have let Reza and Asa talk you into doing that. If they didn't want to be around GG,then they should have stayed home. I know you like to try and help people, like you did with GG. Maybe you should sit down and have a long talk with Reza and Asa and try to make them see how awful they are behaving! Stay the way you are and do not let the fame go to your head!
you're great, you like to have a good time and I also think you're a good friend and reasonable when some of the others aren't. I like that you have taken the time to be fair to GG rather than just write her off.
I like a drink now and then; and I like to have a good time. But I hate that room-spinning feeling upon finally lying down for some rest after a "tear;" and I equally hate that room-spinning feeling upon awakening after a few hours sleep following a "tear." The last time I allowed myself to lose that much control was when I was about 18. I don't know how you guys do that over and over again.
Lilly gets to be Lilly, just like you others get to be who you are, imperfections and all.
I worked in at Hollywood Pres. Medical Center for an Audiologist and learned a tip. To make the room stop spinning, lay down and hang one leg over the side of the bed. It will help to balance your equalibrium thereby stopping the spinning sensation.
Mike,you are the voice of reason on the show and are always really fun to watch.I hope we get to see more of your personal life this season and also see what your passionate about in life,so far,your so Switzerlandish,very neutral.
Why do you care so much about Lilly or Asa?? You all just met them and don't have any kind of history with them like you do with the rest of the cast. Let them be prudish (lilly) and mean (Asa) and stick with your real friends!!!
IzzyGarrett Hulali You mean Mike has known GG for more than 15 years and they were childhood friends. Not Asa. He like the rest of him met Asa when they started taping the show. Asa is new to their group just like Lily.
@OhUKno @IzzyGarrett @Hulali NO. Mike and Asa know each other for 15 years. They said that on the show season 1 and Asa confirmed it on the interview with Joy Behar. GG sister is friends w/ Mike for a long time as well( they used to date)
Good for you for saying "don't" when he was going through her purse. That was pretty disturbing... not to mention if MJ really has a drug problem, the time to address it is behind the cameras, not in front of them.
