I think he knows Reza will turn on him at the flick of a switch if he says more than he should, that's why he is kind of scared of him..
"That's a low down monkey with a wig on!"
LMAO and SMH!
That's the funniest s--- I have heard.
Reza is so funny. That shit stirring, s--- talking guy is my best friend.
I love him but at times I have to step in and try to check him. He was beating up MJ pretty bad and it was breaking my heart that she couldn't even defend herself. Reza kept calling her a bank robber and a pill popper. MJ was umming and hmming while Reza and Lilly took turns taking stabs at her. Anyways, I do agree that MJ has a drinking problem but never seen her poppin pills. She has taken Ambien in front of me but that's it.
I can't wait to see how all this plays out.

Mike you have been disappointing. I used to enjoy you on the show as the voice of reason. However, you have joined the Bad Boy club with Reza because he promised to help you with your failing real estate career. You basically sold your soul to the devil. Sammy is a more calmer person and would probably be a beter fit for you. MJ is a more successful realtor than Reza and he is jealous of her. She is not perfect but none of you on the show are. She likes to drink and so do the rest of you. She does not drink more alcohol than you or Reza. Is is because she is a woman, she should drink less than you? Reza accused her of being promiscuous, but he is himself promiscuous and admitted that he cannot be failthful to anyone.
GG has issues and she has made a lot of mistakes, but you mistreating her the way you did shows that you are not a good friend. You should not have joined with the others to please Asa by uninviting her to Mexico. You go along with whatever Reza is into. You feebly tried to say that you have never seen MJ popped pills, but backed off when Reza said that it was true. I don't believe most of what comes out of Reza's mouth. He ignored his grandmother when he first visited his father, accusing her of causing his parents breakup. Even if the woman did not want his father to marry his mother, the final decision was his father's.
Back to GG, she over reacted when Asa mocked her boyfriend's nose, but do you think that it is necessary for you to join in on Asa's behalf? Your snide remarks about her ring and her engagement was totally out of line, not to mention the looks you were giving. What is it to you anyway? Are just just trying to humiliate her? Hasn't she suffered enough? This is someone that you've been friends with since she was 13 years old and for you to join with Reza who is joining with Asa to cricify her, is a betrayal. You could have at least say out of it. And what's up with this "I am Persian". Who the hell cares? Are you better than us? We are Americans living in our own country and you're suppose to be better than us?
I believe that MJ made a mistake when she was 17 be cashing a check for some Nigerian Hoodlums, but to throw it in her face on National TV was that necessary, calling her a felon and trying to destroy her career.
Yet you go on eating up this nonsense diamond water and the Persian Pop Princess BS? This girl has absolutely no talent...she cant sing...she cant dance and she does not have a good body or face. At that show Asa looked like she is hanging around her house.
I hope you watch the show from when you started to now and see where you are being converted from Mr. Nice Guy to a Bully Follower like you are in high school and walk away from Reza, the fake cryer whose body has no tears.
By the way, your girlfriend is very beautiful and seem to be nice and I wish you much luck and happiness.
well as i said to MJ he reverted to OLD COUNTRY tactics to bring her down PUBLICLY. so much for girl power or girl empowerment. It isn't about the pills or bank robbing, because he has always known this - he is pissed about something else and obviously far to passionate about MJ for his own good. Does she finally have a boyfriend - is she happy - ?? well, if yes, that might be the biggest thing, she has a guy who sees past her flaws and that pisses Reza off - so he wants to expose the worst of her - rather than celebrating her!! JEALOUS!!!!! REZA is JEALOUS of MJ for some reason!!!
I didn't think Reza was going to end up to be the biggest, hateful, vengeful, bitch on the show. I had my money on GG for that but Reza (hands down) took the title and the crown for it at the reunion. What a shame. I'm not a fan of MJ either but after the bullying she took from Reza, I give her props for not having sunk to his level. No one deserves a "friend" like Reza. Despicable.
It was obvious you were uncomfortable about Reza's attack on MJ but you did not do enough to put him in check. You should have done the right thing and put things right. MJ was getting humiliated and bullied. You would have earned EVERYONE'S respect had you put a stop to it. But like they say, hindsight is 20/20.
I'm glad you were there to keep things real in the reunion shows but I don't know how you put up with Reza. When he threw out all those things about MJ even down to being a Bank Robber ( so glad you were there to explain the details) you know he wanted it to seem worse. How can you trust someone like that. He could flip on you next. Good Luck
First season Reza and MJ were my favorite in the group. Fame has gone to Reza's head. He is mean, unloyal, hateful. He is a hypocrite. MJ is a better friend than you deserve. She should not allow you to treat her like a verbal punching bag. And putting all her business out....NO LOYALTY. This....for ratings? Very sad. You turned on your friend! Thank you Mike for not turning on a friend. You are cool. You and MJ are my new favorites. You are a honorable guy. I wish you the best.
You say Reza is your best friend? Well he was MJ's best friend for 20 years and look how brutal he i s to her. Think about it....... Just sayin'......
At this moment if I was you , I would feel ashamed to call someone like Reza your "best friend", he's an ego maniac, that only cares about himself, if he has been so mean to MJ who has been his friend for over 20 years, imagine what he will do to you, once reality hits him, and he sees that you are loved by the fans while he is hated for his meanness, you are becoming quite famous, and he will be jealous, because he is delusional and thinks he is the leader of the pack.
You're a nice guy, but please stop being a follower. Sometimes it seems that when Reza says jump, you say how high?
I love your smile. You and your girlfriend make a great looking couple. Wish you both lots of love.
Pills no pills. Does she or doesn't she? All immaterial at this point. What is material is that MJ has a serious level of trouble with alcohol. Whether it is alcoholism or not would not be for anyone, except a trained addition specialist, to diagnose. She needs the love and support of her family and friends, but more than that she needs professional help. Get that girl to a treatment center. Call Dr. Drew, get the wheels in motion to get her the help she needs. None of you guys can help her, except to convince her to get treatment.
You are so right to protect both MJ and Reza. Reza has a good heart but allows Asa to influence him. Perhaps now he will see the Pop Priestess is full of it and that her spiritual advice has steered him down the wrong path. Stick by him he needs you the most now and watch out for Asa. Until she learns how to positively steer her powerful energy she is downright dangerous. Her advice to OUT MJ on National TV could have driven MJ to take desperate measures. Stay close to MJ, you are a good friend, and thank you for being so kind and level headed. You are the healthiest of the bunch, thank god they have you.
I truly admired you for protecting MJ from unfair attacks. Reza, Lily and Asa were just being vicious. You are a true gentleman.
Mike you seem to nice. I was not sure about you until the last show where you stood up for MJ. I was impressed. It is hard to stand up for a weak person. It is easier to attack.
Dump Reza he is mean and a jerk
I think your a very fair friend to everyone on this show. You've always been a good friend to all of them. I don't know how you stomach GG though. She is the last person that needs to be on any reality TV show. She needs serious help, a person would have to have an abnormal amount of patience to even be around her, let alone try to help her. MJ has a lot of problems too. She needs help too, maybe not the same help as GG but professional help nonetheless. I don't think her friends will be able to get through to her. I know your trying to be fair and your not wanting her to feel attacked and your being protective which is admirable but I'm not so sure it's what she needs. Sometimes as her friend you have to sit back and let a professional take charge. I think that's where this situation with MJ is and where it needs to be.
Quit while you're a head with Reza. He's shown you who he is, believe him. For some reason he's convinced you he's your ticket to success. This couldn't be further from the truth. You've got a great smile and a personality to match. That's all you need. If MJ was ever truly your girl, you'd never have agreed to partner up with Reza. When you say, "it's business, nothing personal", it's unbelievable. A$$hole is not a good look for you, neither is stepping over your friends backs to get ahead in life. If you can check GG, you can check Reza.
You are such a hot...I mean, good friend for sticking up for MJ. Regardless of what is true, or not true, Reza needed to be checked. He is jsut mean!
Can appreciate each of you for all the good qualities that are quite apparent. Like us all, issues abound and life teaches us many lessons. I can appreciate how you are normally, the voice of reason. Except at the final dinner, when you were fuming and went straight to attack mode on Amid. You were the aggressor and he followed your lead. You both behaved like children in the end. I won't even discuss how ridiculous GG's response was. At least Amid had the sense to leave. I think you're both good and decent men that let the testosterone overtake your better judgement. Try a do-over. Good luck to you and take care.
Mike you should teach the others about loyalty. Friendship is like a marriage...not a cat fight. If Reza did this to MJ you have to wonder who next. He goes for the vulnerable...little punk!!
I hope you continue to be a friend to MJ and also try to help GG--If she could get her anger under control she could be a good friend as well
Thanks for trying to defend MJ, they were awful to her and Reza is a friend of 20 yrs that was disgusting hope that the 2nd part doesn't go like the 1st reunion,
Im very glad to see that you can acknowledge Reza's poor behavior. That is the best thing about you in my opinion. No matter what MJs past is she has a good heart when it comes to your "tribe". Keep up the loyalty, it makes you even more attractive.
Really disappointed that you didn't do more to defend MJ. I'll give you credit for trying! Shows you're a nice guy!!! Reza and Asa are awful.
The low down monkey with a wig on comment was copied from Nene on the RHof Atl, and yes it was funy the first time Nene said it about Kim.
If I were you I would reconsider going into business with Reza, all this bad publcity is not good for realtors that have to work off their reputation. I bet the empty desk across from MJ is still available, you should have gone there instead.
As MJ put it, you are the patriach of your group and as a man, you should have stood up more for your friend when she was beig unfairly bullied at the reunion. Doing the right thing isn't always easy, but it make you a man of integrity that others will respect, and that is the most importatn thing a man can do in his life.
You come off charming and mature. You have the best smile. You should really "check" your friend reza because he is not looking like a so called best friend to MJ. He looks downright hateful and he is not being helpful at all but only hurtful. Bring back the reza of season 1. I don't think he can handle the attention. He looks pathetic.
You need to stick up for MJ more. Reza is horrible and not funny at all when it comes to her.
Maybe you need to rethink who you are trying to do business with.
I was so disppointed you didn't step in to stop the bullying that was evident everywhere. I'm pretty comfortable saying I'm sure that's not how you were raised.
If reza is your best friend that shows really what type of person you are mean, hateful, back stabbing, gross!!
You are just shocked to see how the viewers were not in support of your actions, now you want to slip on and play favorable roles? No, I'm not buying it. You, my friend, are not a true friend... And it's quite disappointing
Mike, You need to be a real friend to MJ she really needs one genuine friend! You are going to be judged by association (Reza) he isn't funny at all he is toxic and cruel! Listen to your parents!!! Don't go into business with him..mark my words. .... Personally I thought it was tasteless calling GG up and uninviting her..not cool..you knew it was wrong...stay true to yourself.. I like you and hope you enjoy your time on the show! Good Luck...
You're the only one on this show that is reasonable. You should have shut Reza and Lily down at the reunion. I'm not a fan of MJ but they were cruel and I don't like seeing anyone treated that way...
You definitely were the most tactful person at the fist part of this reunion. I'm going to miss you all though and I can't wait for season 3! :D Thanks for sharing your lives with us.
Well, if you're Reza's new best friend, as least you know what kind of torment, back-stabbing, and mean girl behavior from Reza awaits you. I wouldn't want to be that guy's best friend based on how he's treated MJ, his "blood" best friend of 20+ years. And I don't know why anyone would want to be associated with Reza, MJ, or Lilly (she wonders why her boyfriend of 10+ years hasn't put a ring on it).
@smg6611 I couldn't agree more. He showed his true colors. There is no way a loyal friend could turn on someone the way that he tuned on MJ. He has a lot of pent up anger and you can put all your money on the fact that she won't be the last. It's one of those things that you learn with age. When someone behaves like that to someone in the group, don't stand beside them. It is almost certain that he will do it again and again to different people in the group, one at a time.
@Tinybaby Mike was dead-drink too...and Reza put drinks in MJ hand and throat. I think he is jelous
He is teaching by showing. That is all he needs to do from his position. If he speaks further he will get dragged in reza mud. Mike... don't do it publicly please...but find a way to appreciate GGs nature in helping MJ through this one. It's ugly as f*ck.
ThanQ for showing us the persian marriage process of going outside of the culture. Wish you and the lady well. I also wish we can remember her first name but oh no... reza and MJ "Fogged" the theme.. unreal.
@JaneGold You kidding me? If mike goes any further who knows what wrath awaits him.
@Mazie You are so correct. Reza and Asa say everyone else is toxic and they're the ones who have become the most toxic. Friends do not chastise each other publicly. They quietly, privately speak their concerns. Reza was my favorite, but he lost my respect putting M.J. down to make himself look superior.
Reza's not funny, he's phony and he's not a friend, he's a fiend. With a friend like that, who needs enemies. MJ probably needs pills to deal with RezaJoon
Really ? Do you mean in General or you thought they were funny on
reunion night . Maybe just a man thing but really funny thats your adjective ? I think they are funny as well but that was just sad
