Nadine tells you about "knowing a guy," diamond water, and the high holidays.

on Jan 20, 20130

Hello, my Shah-ites!!! I know we’ve seen many amazing episodes this season, but this is up there as one of my favorites. Here’s a quick rundown of what we saw: Asa looks for the perfect diamond and then makes her diamond water. GG and MJ talk about the infamous text sent from Cabo. Mike's girlfriend is invited to Shabbat dinner with his whole family. Lilly goes on a blind date with the Middle-Eastern Scott Baio. Omid and GG hang out at his pool. And Reza, MJ, Mike, and Asa all go to Great Neck for Rosh Hashanah.

I know the bulk of this episode was about Great Neck, but how amazing was Asa and her diamond water!?! I mean the hunt for the perfect diamond, the love energy, and the Persian rug in the warehouse. I lost my s--- over all of it!

Let's start from the beginning. Asa heads to Downtown L.A. to find the PERFECT diamond for her water. For those of you who don't live in Southern California, Downtown L.A. is where people tell you to go when "they have a guy, that knows a guy." So, Asa goes to visit her "guy," a high school friend named Pat, who’s supposedly going to give her the "family" aka Persian discount.

At the diamond store that looks like the other side of the bookshelf at Anne Frank’s house, Pat first pulls out a 9.5-karat diamond, which Asa meditates on. She puts it on her third eye, and tells Mr. Pat Diamond that she wants to feel the energy of the diamond go through her third eye chakra. She thinks it’s the perfect diamond, until he tells her the price…$325K.

Nadine you are fabulous! I will continue to read your blogs with  kleenex close by to wipe the tears from my eyes as I laugh hysterically! And every point is valid about the charactors on Shahs. If GG came at you with a knife would you knock her on her butt physically or with your highly intellectual verbal assaut? She'd need a dictionary to understand what you said and then cry about how you disrespected her! That's the only owrd she uses to justify her behavior and actions!!!! Keep on writing so we can keep on being lighthearted fans.

Great blog, I laughed and laughed! At least Lily's date got his answer about why was Lily still single! She's the worst date in the world!

This episode had me wiping tears of joy and laughter from my eyes.  Asa's diamond water shtick was FABULOUS!  But even better was Lilly's date.  OMG, and she thinks she has class, wow, how rude was that !  I loved Hadi's response with the cell phone. 

 

Sweet!

I nearly pee'd my pant laughing at Asa and her chakra's... and the 3rd eye energy routine was hilarious.   What a gimmick..  I guess she needs some schtick... since she's not very interesting without it.   Her music, her art, her chakra.. all juvenile.

 

Lily.. what can I say.  She can't even ACT like a Diva.  Nothing Genuine about her.  Nothing classy about her.  I'd rather watch GG get PO'd than watch Lily diss everyone.

 

Great Neck was great.    Glad Reza made peace with his grandma.

Even Mike's family was interesting..

Loved last night's episode!  So many heartfelt, genuine moments - it was tearfully fabulous! The only annoying segment was Lily's blind date. Paging Patti Stanger and "Millionaire Matchmaker" STAT!!  For such an accomplished  professional - Lilly has: a)wasted a decade of her life on a man who has yet to put a ring on her finger  b)Endlessly talking about her ex on a blind date was a drag.  Wonder if she is self sabotaging or just delibrately hiding under the hair extensions/lashes/ couture and cloak of an "ex"?    Patti could set her straight in one episode.  The rest was truly fab TV.

Really enjoyed this!! Read to my husband, it was very entertaining!!  We were in stitches with the way you describe "Chakra" like an LA highway, we didn't know whether to laugh or just drop our jaws, Diamond water, that's something. Also, after seeing teaser of next week's preview it looks like s....t is going to hit the fan!! Seriously though how many Olive Branches can GG extend Asa. In my opinion, if Asa is all about positive energy, karma....and what not maybe she should try to see pass the pool party incident.  I don't ever condone violence, but 2 wrongs don't make a right.Just saying. Afterall, toasting to big noses isn't exactly an ice breaker. Hope to see more of GG. Keep writing and for sure I'll keep reading
