Mike discusses GG's uninvitation from Cabo and how Persians are blessed.

on Jan 6, 20130

Tonight's episode is one of my favorites so far. We got a little bit of everything. Yes! Everything!

The family meeting between Reza, Asa, MJ, and me quickly went from fun to serious talk. An amazing spread of beautiful food and champagne was prepared by my boy Reza as we got down to business. We needed to discuss who is worthy of going on the much-needed trip to Mexico I planned and hooked up. It was unanimous that GG was not allowed to come. I knew I had to be the one to tell her she's not invited. If the rest of them were allowed to break the news to GG, I know they would not have done it as gently as I would.

Honestly if it was up to me I wouldn't mind if she came, but I respect my girl Asa and her wishes. I want a peaceful weekend anyways. I have some MAJOR surprises for my fam (Reza, Asa, MJ, Lilly, and Sammy) this weekend that is gonna make them feel like VIPs -- Very Important Persians! I managed to find the biggest baddest Mercedes in all of Cabo. Nothing but the best for these princesses. Me Cabo is my spot, got a suite there and a nice cabana at Nikki Beach.

MIke, I always applauded your sense of fairness and for trying to keep the peace.  That being said it surprised me that when Reza and Asa gave you an ultimatum you caved.  Friends and family do not give ultimatums.  In the last episode your friends discussed how bountifully blessed you are as far as your "member" is concerned.  However, sounds like you need to grow some "cojones" as we say in Spanish.

The days when Mike was an intelligent and classy guy are gone, he is behaving like his new Business Partner Reza.  I am so sorry to see Mike go so far downhill and join Reza in the ranks of a sleeze connection.

 

Reza was so great before, as was Mike.  Common denominator ASA and LILY have entered the picuture and now are more important than GG and MJ.

So because Asa doesn't want GG in Mexico you uninvite her? I suggest you uninvite Asa, plastic persian princess. GG is real, with issues granted, but Asa is totally fake and only interested in getting GG and MJ kicked out of the group.

Really?  You are bragging about being seriously f'ed up and then you call MJ out as a party girl that gets out of control sometimes?  REALLY?  HYPOCRITE!!!  Pot meet kettle!!

Mike, you seem like one of the only normal people on the show and I really enjoy watching you, but I agree that you turned your back on people recently. You let Asa, who should be removed from the show, and Reza, who is becoming way too negative and back stabbing, to intimidate you into a decision to cut GG. Then in Mexico they turned their back on their "friend" MJ. Friends don't turn away or comment publically and negatively when friends are in trouble. If GG has anger issues, be there and help. If MJ is going down a path of too much alcohol, support her and talk to her. Letting Reza throw their partnership away for a new one with you, behind MJ's back, is terrible. Why could he not just bring you in with her? Be the nice, intelligent and classy guy you've appeared to be in the past. Settle down with a nice girl who likes to have fun. Keep giving us entertainment but without hurting others.

Its go big or go home. I love it. You guys really know how to party. You are my favorite on the show. The voice of reason and the most level headed. GG would have just gotten upset and went to her room or went home, which makes for good tv, but she would have been just like Lilly and buzz kill. Can't wait for next episode..Have fun,,because I think thats what you all will do..

Just watched a sneak peek of tomorrow night's episode, and Mike is right in that "You shold never go through a woman's purse." I know that doing so is very personal, but no more personal that MJ looking at Mike's "BUSINESS." I'm just sayin...

And who are you to decide who is worthy of going to Mexico??

Lmfao!!! One of your favorite episodes?! To me this was the worst episode!!  You, Reza and Asa ruined this episode by not inviting GG to Cabo!!! No one wants to watch Asa or Reza or Lilly for that matter in Mexico!! And yes persians are blessed but so is everybody else in this world!! And I wouldn't brag about Asa being your girl!! She is a wolf in sheep's clothing!! A catty mean girl! and she is phony!! I wouldn't drink her diamond water, if I was stranded in the Sahara desert!

It really ticks me off repeatedly hearing the "white people" comments that you throw out there.  I am not saying you are a racist, but believe me if that were a white person talking about "persian people", that whitey would get raked over the coals! (and I am white by the way).  Once that Reza guy figures out you aren't gonna sleep with him(I don't think you are anyway), he will probably dump you quicker than he did his other "friend" MJ.  Seriously, you guys are some really screwed up people.   Or is it just another "Persian" thing?  LOL!  How annoying that is to hear! I really liked this show last season, but this year, not so much. Bravo, give us another "Housewives" show.  At least that crap is more entertaining!

I don't have much to write here except that I am disappointed that you let your self be "peer pressured" into uninviting GG to the trip...as if this is high school..pretty pathetic if you ask me... one of those has a full grown mustache...

you have known GG since she was just a kid and you decide to be pressured by people you have known for what a year or two?....sad

You told MJ to free the baggage in her life why don't you take your own advice? Reza and Asa are bad news. I mean seriously he let you weasel in and basically bump MJ out of her office...he'll do that to you but then again you were supposed to be her friend too and GG's for that matter but hey anything to make you're new business partner happy.

Mike Im sure you know what Reza and Asa aiming to do with GG. This obvious to all viewers, take her out of this show. Now are you going to be the man that you are suppose to be like most Persian man are, or are you going to turn into this little boy and adhere to Reza,a wishes. Defend that Persian pride. You and Sammy are so far voice of reason.

What? If you are going to get offended by what people used to call you, or have to go back to slavery to make your point, then don't even try to explain it for Mike.  Let him explain it and what it means to an American Persian right here, and right now, and why he used it. We don't need your interpretation on his behalf.  He is a grown man.

Mike you are so immature even more than GG who btw supposed to be your friend way before "your girl Asa".  Be a man and make your own decisions.  Also, you went behing MJ's back to take her job and then said "its not personal its business" Reza better watch his back because you would do the same to him if someone offers a better deal with friends like you who needs enemies.......

Mike you tried, but fortunately you were outvoted about uninviting Mizz GG.  I don't blame that you had to do it one bit, since you were the one who invited her in the first place.  Personally, I'm glad you were outvoted because GG would have, at some point once the alcohol took over, started some drama with someone and brought the whole group down.  Who needs their good time and fun spoiled by the one and only bad apple who is capable of spoiling it EVERY TIME all of you get together?  Cabo is no duck walk, and to have traveled that far, you look forward to having a good time without any drama.  The foot has GOT to be put down at some point to indicate that that kind of behavior is no longer tolerated or invited into our group.  And that's keeping it real.

Your kissing Reza's butt cause you are going into business with him. Please. How nasty that was to uninvite GG. That was second grade. So very, very sad.

Mike I think that you are a sweet guy, but unfortunately the ignorant comments about how "white people are crazy" should stop. I'm not saying that you're racist, but your choice of words were irresponsible. Maybe you were trying to be funny about the people you saw acting foolish at the pool party? It's really not humorous to make such a broad statement about an entire race or nation based upon certain people's actions. I for one wasn't laughing and reading other viewers comments' they weren't either. It's wise to think before you speak.

To renege on an invitation is classless.  Mike, you need to gain some confidence and stand up to the bullies.  Don't know why Asa and Reza have turned so ugly and mean this season.  MJ was right when she said that Asa never apologizes.  I can't bear to watch Asa anymore - she makes me ill.  You should have stood your ground and kept GG on board.  Then Asa and Reza wouldn't have gone to Mexico, and we wouldn't have had to witness more of their bad behavior.

Hey Mike what you did to your friend G.G. was really messed up dude.  If you think what you did was right KARMA is motherf^$@# .  You may loose all your good fortune one day because being a scum bag will catch up.  You should make amends with her if you really take your friendship seriously.  Sorry man no disrespect but that was pretty chicken sh^t.

For gods sake, I thought you were the only reasonable one out of the group. Why would you be so cruel as to invite GG and then let Reza and Asa bully you into calling her and telling her she is no longer invited !  I thought you had more class than them.  Please dont become like Reza and Asa or I will have no hope left for the show.

Though I am not a fan of GG's behavior, The way you uninvited her was not cool. You looked as though you was trying too hard to please the snobby kids. For someone who is supposedly "well endowed", you really need to grow a pair.

Mike--it's time you grew a pair and stop allowing Asa and Reza dictate who gets to go on a trip YOU organized.

You are a bandwagoner. You don't have the guts to stick up to what is right if the "cool gang" doesn't back you up. And if MJ gets out of control "sometimes" then she is doing better than you! You are drunk at every social gathering!

Pot meet kettle!!! You saying MJ is a party girl that gets out of control sometimes and that she might have a drinking problem, all the while you pounded alcohol and were so drunk you couldn't even make it to dinner with the friends YOU invited on the trip?  I was trying to like you, but your ego and arrogance are too much!

LarissaD

I like you Mike, I really do. You should not have listened to Asa and Reza. Go with your instinct and you should have not uninvited GG. I literally yelled at my TV, "How long are you guys going to punish her?!" I think MJ not inviting her to her birthday party was enough of a public punishment. She deserved another chance for the Cabo trip. She has anger issues but they are not completely one sided. Plus Asa clearly was not scared of her because she claims she could snap her in half or something to that extent. Basically it seems like GG hurt both and Reza's feeling and instead of dealing with her individually the weaklings are teaming up to attack her. That is not fair. I think you play a very neutral role in this group of friends and you should stay that way. Also, stop saying "white people". It sounds ignorant and you come from a highly intelligent family so I think you are smarter than this.

Damn, I really liked the show the first season, and looked forward to the next season.  You have to take these people for what they are. The egos, for some reason, are large and they have an attitude that they are better than most people.

This season, wow, the racist comments are just too much.  It's so disappointing that the only openly gay person on the show, Reza, is such a bigot.

I think they way with which these people throw around racial slurs, they think it's funny and appropriate.

To be a minority in this country, and to spew the hate like they do is truly baffling.

Mike, why are you guys so racist, and seemingly so comfortable with it?

 You're so right.  I won't watch the show anymore, Mike is totally racist.

 @ritabita

 You want to really know why?  In my opinion they are Middle Easterner's, they were once bunched in with everything oriental.  Look at their old artwork and listen to their early music, it was very oriental. They had being lumped in with Asian's. They are also not Arabs, nor were they oringinally Muslim, they were Zorastian.  They are not really racist, they just think they are better than everyone else because they have money..  They are trying hard to find their identity, many people do that by  downing other people in order to feel superior.

 @Itokagi23  @nycgirl69 What is most amazing is that Indo-European cultures, such as Persian is considered so much White that even Hitler considered them White.  In essence Mike was talking about his own race.  Do your homework NYCGirl69!  Persians are NOT Arabs, or Asian and are considered White.

@Lisasandiego @Tlr He is physically attractive, he loves his mother, I love that about him. But he is a good fiend, if it's convenient. He arranged the Cabo trip. If Reza and Asa didn't want to go because if GG, then they should have stayed at home. I know Asa, with her broke needed to stay home and look for a job. It is very tacky to invite someone and then uninvite them. If GG was an issue for Reza and Asa then you should have had the "family" meeting before inviting her. You seem to be kissing Reza's butt these days in an attempt to make the money you once did. You let him embarrass his friend of 20 years and kick her to the curb, you let him embarrass your good friend GG , pretending you all were family , yet kicked her out of the family because she "messed" up. What if your parents had kicked you out because you no longer made money? Reza has really changed in a lot of ways, all that are not good. And maybe he was like this all along. The glaring thing I see is he kicked his friend MJ to the curb for someone who has a lot of money, a lot of makeup and no class.
