But. . .back to reality. . .grandma was uber talkative and open with Reza. I was floored, not only by her warmth but also by her throwing that drink back the way she did. That’s how I want to be when I’m over 90. I’ll drink. I’ll fart in public. I’ll speak my mind. And I’ll even change my name to Lady Orange County. I was really proud of Reza for being so open with his grandma, and for grandma being so open with him. What an episode!!!
I know I didn’t cover everything, but Reza with his family brought his story full circle from last season. I’m glad we’re finally seeing Reza in a good light. He was the hero last season, and this season he’s been a mean girl. I like seeing his softer side, or as I like to call it his "inner poodle." I’m even happier that MJ and the gang are playing nice because you know when the Shahs play nice for too long, sh*t is bound to hit the fan -- as we saw in next week’s tease.
Oh and as for Lilly talking about her ex on her blind date with the Persian Scott Baio, she needs to check herself. Lilly, take note, when going on a first date (or any date for that matter), don’t bring up your ex. I appreciate the nice brush off, but it was obnoxious. The good that came out of that date was that we learned Lilly eats carbs!!! Yup, she ordered the short rib ravioli like a champ.
That’s it for now! I can’t wait for next week! By the looks of it we’re going to see the Bravo equivalent to American Horror Story. There is never any rest for the Persians!
