I can't believe the seasons over!
We had a lot of laundry to air out. This was an amazing season. Some of us grew closer and some grew apart.
Some of the things that were brought up were a little intense. I wish they weren't said.
I hope that we can we mend our friendship, the brother and sisterhood that we had built over the past several years. Whatever happens: I love these guys and they are my family.
Selling 7 million in real estate in Beverly Hill, could only mean they sold one house. I don't see how people see Mike as such a good person. He becomes partners with Reza, not caring that MJ was Reza's partner. What kind of "friend" does that. On WWHL he bragged about hoe he spent $2000 on a dress for his girlfriend and how Persian men take care of their women. Real men don't need to show off what the do or have. He acted like a complete idiot with Omid. Omid came straight out and said he did talk about Mike because he heard he and his family were being talked about by Mike. A real man would not let another person treat a women the way Reza did to MJ. Loved Mike last season. I can only imagine the disappointment he will cause his family by posing in play girl.
Shame on you to sit there and allow someone who clearly was unable to defend herself to be bullied by your "bro". You should have put a stop to it - got up - took MJ's hand and walked off until that idiot Andy Cohen came to his moral senses and realized that someone was totally being bullied right in front of his eyes. No one - not for a show or for $ should allow that. Karma will get ya!
MiKE...IF THERE WILL BE NEXT SEASON...CAN YOU PLEASE TAKE A ROLE to help MJ understand that she does have a drinking problem. She clearly does not want to part ways with her drinking. Her drinking robs her from her future. Her therapy does not help. It is a daunting task, but only a person like you who does not degrade people to make himself feel taller can undertake this task. GG drinks allot herself, so she cannot help MJ. Reza is a very bad person, he does not know hoe to help someone who is not well. He only poor gasoline on wounds. Asa and Lilly dont care for anybody to get better. Asa bulshits us with her diamonds and money in the foundation and smoking her privates....real idiotivc staff. Lilly is screws up big time with her barbie-image, anorexic existance. But Mj is charismatic, caring, intelligent, abended-by-her-mother-as-a-child likable human being. She is becoming self-destructive with her drinking and partying. It is hard to watch her spiraling downward. I know you are to-be-married, so your head is not in the MJ business...still...think what it takes to get her to realization that she is indeed in trouble with her addiction. If she resists, tell her to stop drinking for 2 month....just to prove she does not crave it. I bet she will not be able to abstain.
I have liked you over the seasons. However, I have to wonder about your character if you still can maintain a close relationship with a snake like Reza. Is it the business partnership that makes you not want to rock the boat? Look out; if he was willing to do what he did to MJ, who for 20 years gave him love and support he could not even get from his own family members, you are not off bounds, either.
All of them, EXCEPT for MJ, are disgusting for one simple fact—THE MOTHER COMMENT THAT Reza said to MJ. Reza set a new low with what he said about MJ’s mother.
I think MIKE, and the WOMEN's TRIVIAL reactions were very disappointing. Mike is most disappointing because he was ready to fight Omid for talking negatively about his family. I am sure Omid said nothing nearly as disgusting as what Reza said to MJ. However, Mike just shook his head when Reza’s said the appalling comment about MJ's mother. Also, the women's reaction was unworthy. Earlier in the season when the women were at dinner and first met Omid, he made a comment about smacking the women. The women stood together and got on him. During the reunion show, when Reza calls MJ’s mother vile names, NONE OF THE WOMEN SAID A THING--no one stood up and said, “ENOUGH!”, “APOLOGIZE NOW!”, “ REZA, YOU’VE CROSSED THE LINE!". However, GG gets angered enough to want to throw a plate of olives at Asa for calling her a spoiled brat. This is a group of friends and family??????????
It does not matter if Reza and MJ have been friends for 50 years. There are things you do not disclose in public. NO ONE was protecting their tribe (as Mike refers to them) at this reunion. They were letting us see such cruelty. When you call parents and children vile names like Reza did, it is the lowest anyone can go and nauseating to watch.
Im watching the show today and I can't believe the IGNORANT COMMENT you made about a Mongoloid ugly looking person. For this I believe you will be blessed such a precious child you are EVIL and so ARROGANT. Handicaped in the the USA are appreciated and not degraded.
YOU GOT IT ........................
Mike, ty for having MJ's back at the reunion. Reza was so disrespectful as well as the rest of the panel especially Lilly !! You are truly a gentleman and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Mike follows whoever is going to get him the power and money the quickest. In the Shahs’ first season, Mike said he was the King of Las Vegas and accustomed to the finer things in life. Mike said he lost it during the recession and returned to LA to rebuild his life. Remember, he won the champagne contest at Reza’s party (because when he was in Vegas, he had it all, and accustomed to only the best). Oddly, during this year’s reunion show, Mike said his current girlfriend bought him his first pair of Gucci shoes. Interesting, the King-of-Las Vegas never owned a pair of Gucci shoes.
This season when Mike, Reza and Asa appeared on WWHL, Mike said Reza was the “biggest shut-stirrer." Now, Reza is his best friend, probably because they made 7 million dollars in December.
In season 1, Mike was the ladies’ man and hanging out with playboy bunny-type women. When he met his current girlfriend, who is a nurse or nursing student, he did not mention her occupation, initially. What was important for Mike to mention was that her father is a top executive in a Fortune 500 company (forgot the company he said).
Mike should be thanking MJ. If MJ did not make a big deal about Mike’s package, Playgirl might not have called him. Let’s see the friends Mike keeps as he reclaims his throne.
hardingpark Unfortunately I have to agree! This is who he showed himself to be and that is SAD!
PS...You really need to get some new friends if you think a guy like Reza is capable of being a friend. Look what he did to MJ and lean from that. Run as far as you could cuz next it will be YOU!
Mike why do you talk down to GG like the way you did especially when she started hanging out with Omid? Is it because you are no longer her flavor?..You should watch and hear yourself because you come across as mean to her as a jealous ex BF.
Mike, you dropped the ball. I would think your girlfriend wouldn't be that impressed with your behavior and certainly not your buddy's either. Shame on all of you for the impression you have made. Not watching you ridiculous Iranians again.
Mike I hope we see more of you next season .
You are handsome , nice tempered , you have a lovely girlfriend and your parents seem so loving.
You started the show as GG best friend...Yet, Asa managed to put a wedge between you two. For some reason i feel that your jealousy caused you to attack Omid. You betrayed your friendship with GG...not as bad as Reza...but still when Asa wanted her to not to Cabo, your friend-instinct failed you. Resa_Asa clan assumed the role of driving the show...and it went sour very badly. Peopl want reality show...not bullying show like Jerry Springer-type. GG is real and dealing with demons. MJ is real and dealing with demons, Asa is fake and want us to buy her diamond-shtick, Lilly is humor-less and does not take little bites from MJ with a grain of salt. You so far fell short on friendship department...but i give you a plus for being real never the less.
vetalana I don't agree with you. I like that Mike went to GG's house and talked to her privately. He didn't wait for a party, or reunion to attack her, he just comunicated his feelings face to face in private setting.
Omid had admitted that he said a lot of bad things about Mike. Mike just defended himself. To bad he didn't defend MJ with the same passion.
@boga @vetalana yeah, I like Mike and think his intentions were good, but rather than disinvite GG, he should have spent his energy trying soften Asa and Reza. It's mean to "outcast" a member of a group. esp when they apologize and try to improve. They had drama in Cabo without GG anyway so her absence didn't keep things peaceful...just turned focus on next issue. As obnoxious as GG can be ,seems like she is the only one taking an honest hard look at herself.
i don't blame you for not getting too involved. you did reza a favor because if he attacked you and called your mother those names, he would be unrecognizable.
I appreciated your attempts to speak up on MJ's behalf. Only wish it had been more. Reza went after her without any boundaries. It was so hard to watch.
Mke, Out of everyone you were calm and collective. Reza made me sick and who could get a word in.
Mike - so wished you would have spoken up more in MJ's defense. And if you haven't realized it by now - you need to get far away from Reza because his reputation is mud and no decent Persian would ever do busines with him!
Mike you should have stepped in and defended MJ. You kind of helped Reza too by saying that he made 7 million dollars in December to let MJ down.
Most comments I read on all blogs are negative about Reza and that snake Asa. I know that you and Reza are business partners and I have a feeling that his bad reputation will effect your business too in the long run.
raha.ghazvini i thought Mike said that Reza sold 7 million worth of real estate, not that he made 7 million.
You can't say these guys are your family and sit back while "a family member" is being attacked and disrespected. You can't control other people's actions, but doing nothing was just not COOL!
I am so disgusted by the behavior on the reunion show that I actually felt physically ill. To watch an attack from Reza so vile and disgusting and to not attempt to comfort MJ or truly step in and be a better man shows that you are more concerned about how the "in" crowd feels about you more so than being able to feel empathy to a human in distress. Reza is a despicable human being, he tries to play to the camera for attention, thinks he has the backing of the so-called stars and literally tears into his supposed best friend on national television. What a way to be a break-out star Reza! Asa throws a lot of shade at GG about not having a job but what I would like to know is WHAT IS ASA's JOB? No one seems to know. Someone should have told GG that she had done well with her promotion party but all that came out of your mouths was criticizm. Did anyone ever think that maybe GG did not know that Omid was with someone else the night of her engagement announcement? Not one drop of sympathy was shown and the way that Lily used that info to hurt GG was abhorent. No one said anything detrimental to either Asa or Lily about their behavior - what are you afraid that Asa, Reza or Lily might start throwing some of your secrets out to a nationwide audience? Is that why you were not man enough to stand up for your friends GG and MJ? Do you truly believe that your behavior is excusable? From what I can see, the portrayal of Persians by you and your so-called friends is one of disloyalty, contempt for one another and jealousy. Not a good look Mike......not a good look at all
olivia4414 watching reza in anger was very painful to watch... that man is in pain and acted like a rapid animal. however, asa enjoying it encouraged him to continue and that creeped me out.
olivia4414 I couldn't agree with you more. I was especially upset by Lilly telling GG that she had seen Omid with another girl the night they announced their engagement. I saw the hurt in GG's eyes. That was pure evil! Yet no one said a word to Lilly. Andy seemed to get a kick out of the fighting and he didn't point out the wrongs Reza, Lilly, and Asa were doing to MJ and GG. I too was very disappointed in MIke.
olivia4414 You could have done so much more. But you allowed Lilly and Asa to tear MJ and GG to pieces and you did nothing. You spoke up to Reza once. That's all. It was not enough to redeem you in my eyes. Reza's rage and anger were supported while you sit in judgment of GG.
That's all you have to say? How about apologizing for being disrespectful and rude?
You really seemed to enjoy watching your female "friends" being ganged-up on.
I too have lost respect for you Mike. You are either sneaky or need a backbone. You and Andy shoud have done more to protect MJ
I don't buy into your peace maker role Mike. You have displayed the same aggression you reprimand and ridicule GG for and have been extremely nasty to GG in some of your blog comments and interviews. You are not her friend. In my opinion, you, Reza and Asa are cut from the same cloth. The whole world just has not begun to see your true colours as yet. GG is not innocent, but we know that, at least she is real. Booy, I think you will be switching friends when the fans decide who they like best again....hmm...something about you...not nice.
Mike Ive always admired you and enjoyed you on the show. Last night I lost a little respect for you. You didnt have to defend anyone but you really should have stepped in and tried to control your "best friend." Take friendship out of the equation, did you really think your business partners behavior was acceptable? I certainly would not trust someone so emotional and erratic in a business situation. I know you cant "control" anyone especially a 50 year old guy, or 40, however old he is, but maybe "suggest" that he calms down and keeps his mouth shut. Anytime he opened it last night, he was not cute. By the time he started crying, I didnt feel bad for him. Everything seems like an act. Just my opinion...I hope you and Jessica, GG and MJ come back next season with some new people.
szq1971 You lost just a A little respect?! Give me a break! He only came to live when it was time to talk about his penis. The rest of the time he looked like a bored monkey who wants to run away and hide. He was nasty to GG and sat and watch 3 dogs (Asa, Lilly and Reza) rip MJ in to pieces!
Mike, Why is Asa in charge of who can be in the group? Why don't any of you tell her that everyone is included and if she doesn't like it then she should be the one to stay behind. I was so saddened to see you all let her make the decisions this season and leave GG out of the group. You can't help a friend with a problem if you all exclude her from everything. Really, who is Asa is this world... Mike stop the bullying!!!!
Mike you appear to be sincere and able to reason regardless of the situation except for you tyrate with Omid, when you became plain vicious. I am not certain where life will take any of you and although I wish you, MJ and GG well, I cannot say the same for Reza, Asa or Lily.
You all seem to insist that GG and MJ face their own reality and all of you rip into them, but you won't make Asa face the fact that she is a "Nut Job", Lily is totally pretencious and was self-manufactured past normal and apparently ashamed of what God gave her at birth...then there is Reza, the two-faced weirdo that sniffs men's armpits for pleasure.
For the good of you and Jessica, distance yourself from these people as there is no way they could be good for your future with her.
where is Reza's blog this week or Asa - could be they know how bad hey looked and how wrong they were.
Mike your awesome i think you handled yourself very well and made your family proud .
Be a man and don't let another man bully a women. you are not a man until you can do that.
you are a weak and pathetic person until you can stand up for women.
Mike- I didn't say in my first comment and I meant to. I think you are a really nice guy! Just please stand up for the girls Reza gets off being so mean to. You are the voice of reason. Best of luck to you and your significant other! Congrats!
Tetreault I love Mike, but I really question how he can stand by Reza the way he does? I feel like he sorta tells him like it is, but doesn't he worry if he can do this to MJ, how would he treat me?
It was not an amazing season, Michael. I know you started to tell Reza to stop with the hate toward MJ and he should discuss another time but I was disappointed you didn't do something when he went on and on badgering her and dissing her and telling all her secrets. It was humiliating to watch.
