I'm so choked up right now. I am literally tearing up as I write this.
Two things that i am so emotional over. . . One: I can't believe that this season of Shahs is over. One of the best summers of my life. Two: Watching my beautiful parents talking to me about the love of my life. The fact that my Persian Jewish parents give me their blessing means the world to me. I can only wish to have a long and happy relationship as they do. They have set the bar pretty high.
I love my fam and my girl. Looking forward to see what the future holds.
You do seem like a nice person and I am happy you have found the one. I don't know if you have seen a Bronx Tale or not but there's a part where Chazz Palminteri is advising the teen boy that adores him and the boy loves a girl that is not of his race. And Chazz says something that's so true. "At the end of the day when its you and her between the sheets that's all that matters". Follow your heart and all will work out. Best of luck to both of you. Italian girls are great! :0)
You seem like a good guy, with morals and character!
Please rethink Playgirl. If you truly think jessica is the "one" I believe it'll hurt your relationship. I understand two different cultures getting married... Im Jewish (although wasn't raised religiously) and Ive been happily married to a gorgeous, Catholic man from Italy for almost 18 yrs. We have two beautiful sons, are so in love and crazy for each other..he's truly my solumate. If you have that amazing connection, intoxicating attraction and friendship with Jessica... go for it. From experience, you must be decide upon your future childrens religion before marriage. Children need a foundation and to avoid future conflicts choose a religion for them to follow from day one. Children can respect and observe the other parents heritage however, they must follow one, and not both. I'm a product of "lets do both religions and my sibilings and I can tell you it doesn't work."
Mike, I actually have taken a liking to you.... please find a more suitable girl. I am sure she's nice, but there's something about her that does not come across as honest and legit. I don't believe at all she's as into you as you are into her. I am not Persian... I can relate to her, but there is something there that is off and it comes out when she thinks no one notices. I can read eyes, looks, body language and pick up on certain vibes... she's using you. She may have her own to fall back on, but she's not interested in you the way you would like her to be. She's fallen for what you could provide, but not for your emotions. She carries herself as though everyone and everything is too good for her. She's fake and should just allow her daddy to find her a husband. She's not as real as you think she is. There are a gazillion girls out there that supersede her. Just stop looking and you'll naturally notice each other.
Truly enjoyed you this season. You were a true friend to GG when you tried talking to her one on one. You did your best! Also, looking forward to seeing what your future holds!
MIke, one thing I've noticed in all the cast blogs is, the polarization of fans based on how all of you treat one another as friends. It's nobody's place to dictate that to you. ALL of you are very kind and open in sharing your world with all of us, and I for one appreciate it. Yours is a brand of "tough love", but there's nothing wrong with not sugar-coating everything. There is no bullshit with you! You are all man. Just 3 words about the possible Playgirl endeavor: PLEASE STAY CLASSY. Love you!
Your parents are so right about your lady. Two different strong cutures are going to clash hard. You are starting with two strikes against you and her. I wish you both the best.
The way you talked about GG I don't call a friend. I didn't like also the way you treated Omid, you and Asa were very disrespectful towards him.
Mike, I think you are the only sane person on this show. Congrats to you and your girlfriend, I wish you all the best! Without going back and reading all of your fans blog posts, am I the only person who thinks you and Mark Consuelos (sp?) Kelly Rippa's husband, look like brothers?
Mike be your own man and not let others influence you as to who should be your friend or not. GG and MJ needs your help. GG is trying really hard to improve, having a positive interactions can only help.
Hi Mike - I am a fan of yours and think you tried to help GG out in the beginning until you realized how volatile she was - GG cant expect people to be good friends to her when she is not a good friend to others and her apology was not at all genuine to Asa so she shouldnt have even wasted her time.
Mike, You are so lucky to have open minded parents from the old country. We both know many who are not! Mazel Tov, you deserve it!
So are you learning to speak Italian to make Jessica's family happy? Or is it just about you and what makes your parents happy? Your so fake..
I think you have wonderful parents! I'm sure you are very well aware of that. I really thought it was very sweet the way your dad spoke from his heart and they do really want the very best for you and they want you to be happy. I think Jessica is adorable and I do hope things work out for the two of you. Just take your time, you are both very young and take it from someone who will be 50 this year, just make sure that this is what you both want. I hope to see you all again in Season 3 but definitely will see you in the upcoming Reunion show, God willing. I never thought that I was going to like your show as much as I do, I really do find it entertaining to say the least. Best of luck to you and Jessica and continue to be a great son to your parents, they deserve it!!
Your parents must be horrified at your Playgirl pics. Love with an American shiksa is one thing, but pornography is quite another. no?
Aw, I liked Mike's parents. They were sweet.
Mikey, honey, listen to me. Take things slowly. Don't be in a hurry. You're young. Jessica's young. There's no reason to rush. Live together to a couple years.
When you're young, it's so easy to "know" that 1) you're in 'love' and 2) s/he is the 'right' one. Listen to those of us who are older. You think you're in love, but (and this is really for Lilly) you might find out that you were just infatuated or that you were in love, but it wasn't the right person.
Take it slowly. There's no reason to rush. All the best to you and your family. You've shown that you're a good and caring friend.
Love you Mike and I think you are genuine and a good friend. GG is a nutcase and her attempted apology to Asa was not at all genuine. When she first came into the dinner she totally ignored Asa. Then when Reza asked her if she wanted to apologize or had anything to say - she acted like she had no idea what he was talking about or what the whole point of the dinner was. I feel sorry for her but i understand if you guys have gotten to the point where you are over her crazy antics and physical violence. Best luck with your girlfriend :-)
You are such a beautiful person- inside and out. You deserve all the success and happiness life has to offer.
I loved the scene with your parents and the sweet way they reacted to your news. You deserve the girl of your dreams and they know that. Your father's reaction was so meaningful. Your girl is lucky to have such a good guy like you. May the both of you find the happiness you really deserve. You are a good guy for sure. As an added note, please stick by GiGi. She is a mess, but Asa pushes her buttons. I really don't care for the way Asa dismisses GiGi. You are the voice of reason, so help bring GiGi back to reality and to your tribe which is what she needs. She really needs friends and Asa is not one of them.
Mike, you seem so genuine and so much fun! I love the way you treat your lady and your family are amazing people. Wish you guys the best!
Mike your character throughout the show was better than everyone's. I wish you the best with Jessica. I also hope you continue to be a friend and big brother to GG. She is a good soul and to be honest I think has the best heart out of the entire cast. She tried to make mends and humbled herself and that witch Asa still did not give her the time of day. I know you are much better than that and hope that you will continue to be there for her.
Good for you Mike, you grew a pair and stood-up to your parent's! Good luck with Jessica, it will still be rough now and then.
you are a good guy for staying focused on your personal life. i can see how you lost your fuse with the social aspect of this show.
do not abandon gg just bc she is taking longer to grow. she wants to feel good. she humbled and embarrassed herself of her weaknesses and needs to work more and she is doing it. that means she respects friends like you in advice. it's just pain.
asa is threatening and judgemental. i am glad that MJ is strong enough to sense this. reza has his gaymidlife crisis so he gets a temp pass.
best wishes for your romantic future.
Love is blind and so you are off to a good start because there is not a restriction to your choice but only love!
Mike, I've enjoyed you so much this season. You were the voice of reason and showed a lot of compassion towards everyone. Best of luck w Jessica!!
lisa2 Totally agree. For someone who has been a friend to GG for 20 years, you should be ashamed of how you and the rest treated her. Asa is completely Whacked (If I heard that word out of her mouth one more time, Ugh!). I have a feeling that GG is the one who is going to be laughing at all of you once your 15 minutes are up!
@NYCrealrealhousewife @lisa2 - lol...I counted six 'wacked' coming out of Asa's mouth. She's so ridiculous. I hope they get her off the show. I laughed so hard when I heard GG making fun of Asa using the word 'wacked'
lisa2 Thank you I couldn't have said it better, they're behavior was disgusting!! It's okay for MIKE to display acts of violence. When he threatens to hit someone, "it's an emotional response" when GG does it she's crazy...wow!!
His girlfriend should definitely reconsider going into a marriage with someone who is judgemental and self-absorbed.
I am glad the season is over
You can see why you're a wonderful person. God bless your lovely parents. Happiness is such a gift-even if it bend/breaks some societal rule/traditions.
Mike, I've never posted a comment before so you should feel honored-jk! You are such an amazing, solid guy! I wish you nothing but happiness. Now that you have your parents blessing, please put a ring on it! I never had a close relationship with my dad. When your dad opened up to you and shared his feelings, I cried. You are very lucky. Stay beautiful and blessed. Here's hoping Bravo will give you spin off. I would love to see how the Italian/Persian wedding unfolds....
So sweet when your dad said that you should make sure to spend time with your children. I just love that comment!
