Nadine recaps whether Reza or MJ is dying alone, the future of diamond water, and GG's angst.

on Dec 16, 20120

Reza and Asa stop by to check out what Zoolander is up to. Before I get into their visit, I have to comment on what Asa was wearing (again), because she may have just topped herself. Let’s just say if Boy George, Six from Blossom and Madonna had a love child, it would be our Persian Pop Priestess.

Onward. . .at Reza and Asa’s visit to Lilly’s photoshoot, Lilly invites Reza, Asa and (drum roll) MJ out to eat. Lilly wants to get to know MJ better because she feels like the dinner party from the first episode wasn’t a good first introduction. Or as I see it: Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I’m sure Reza is thinking, “OMG, we’re so f---ed.” And he’s right. . .they are. More on that in a minute.

Moving on to the hidden gem of this episode: Asa’s visit to the water bottling plant to turn her diamond water into a product. Can I just say how much I love Asa’s grandiose thinking? Her pitch went something like this:

Hi, I have a magic recipe of alkaline water infused with diamonds and love energy. Every time I drink it, I feel amazing, and I want to spread the love.

Asa, can you please tell me how you exactly “spread” your “love energy” into the water?

Watching this, I’m thinking there is NO way that they’re going to hop on board, but quite the opposite happened. Shawn (the guy at the plant) tells her he loves the idea, but the trick is sterilizing the diamonds. Just the diamonds??? Just the diamonds??? Um, I think her “love energy” needs to be sterilized because I sure as hell have no idea where it’s been.

I only read page one of your blog, but just want to comment that I feel bad for GG.  Yes, she's a hot mess, but her sister is too hard on her, and Asa is an assa to her.

The only thing I get out of this show is that Persians have big egos, are materialistic, spend all their money to look like they are rich but in reality they can't make their next months bills, they are rude, loud mouthed, not in tune with the real world, drunks, etc, etc.   This show makes them all look bad.  Don't get why people would want to go on tv to show what idiots they really are.  Oh, but I guess the show will help pay next months bills!

This show is crazy good! The housewives don't infuse enough comedy with all the drama and can be depressing when you think of all the horrible things these so called nice girls do to each other! You get a lot of bang for your buck with the shahs of BH with a dollop of Nadine on top! Love it!

Your recap is very good....these people remind me of dice on a board game...it seems like someone just tossed them out of a cup, and they are trying to find their balance...Asa and GG are the most self absorbed women ever to grace a reality show...grace is a generous word....Asa's mother struggles to make 30k a year to support her family, yet Asa has buried a years worth of her moms income in her cement front stoop....the next time Asa asks for money from her mom, she needs to be told to rent a jackhammer...I bet her mom didn't know that gem of info till the show aired...and on the subject of gems, let's talk about diamond water....infused with Asa's love energy....my question was how to infuse? Does she spit in it, P in it? Or just meditate in the bottling facility? Then she was surprised at the start up costs....and that made me realize this chick isn't using real diamonds, she most likely will try to pass off "diamonique", the way a scoundrel boyfriend would do if he did not want to invest in a real diamond....and if that scene was not bad enough, she had to come in looking like an eighties mall pop singer...I think Tiffany and Debbie Gibson sported that look many times, stealing from Boy George of course....should we all want to be tuned to our own channel like Asa, and not have mirrors in our house?

if MJ could acknowledge that work is an intrinsic value in this life she will show up more often

I'm sorry but I think it may be a case of sometimes outgrowing your friends.  MJ does not appear to have a good work ethic. She also supports a highly toxic and cruel person - GG.

@Diniva Just curious if you watched the show where she was explaining to Mike what Asa did to her before she turned gangsta on Asa....her very dramatic playback is a clue as to how GG processes events as they enter her head...I didn't catch all that drama from Asa when it was going down, partly because I was trying to figure out what was under Asa's top....I begged the tv to black out if not seeing a bottom meant she had nothing under the top....then I caught a glimpse of gold and breathed a sigh of relief...on this day I would be spared .... But not spared from the private embarrassment I feel for Asa everytime she appears on camera with another outfit....there is nothing worse than being embarrassed for a tv personality....it is a tormenting private humiliation you somehow grapple with, without being able to explain yourself or the personality committing the offense.....and then you pray a silent prayer thanking the heavens that you were not in front of the offensive outfit.....I didn't know at that point to watch GG trying to ram a chair up Omid, or Asa's tunic....they were both complete disasters....then I saw Gg running toward Asa again...and comic relief took me over...when Omid picked her up, it reminded me of the runt kitten in a litter of kitties that ran out from under her mama cat, looking to get into a bit of mischief, to finally have mama fetch her in her teeth where she would once again sit on her to keep her from hurting herself...

 @shanlea MJ made more money than Reza last year with less effort. I don't see how Reza justifies his behavior. Maybe she is out earning him again this year and he is bitter.
