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!

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!
PS I just tweeted Andy and asked him to have you as his guest on WWHL! I hope yo see and hear you on his show!
Your blogs are so much fun to read!!! Thank you! Your "tongue in cheek" descriptions are "spot on"; Why on earth aren't you on the show?
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.
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.
@lisa2 Its what I hate most about these shows. Nobodys in a hot minute always hawking crap for a big payday and I do mean crap!
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
