Continuing on with the episode, MJ leaves the dramatic bushes of Cabo to blow off steam at the club with season one excommunicate, Sammy. Despite the fighting, MJ claims that she ended the night "right". . .and by "right" she means alone in a club with Sammy, and his sweat-soaked Tommy Bahamas shirt, scarf, and a Fedora plucked from 2004.
Anyway, MJ wags her tail all over that dance floor like she is the Persian Snooki, and Sammy is her JWoww. At the club, MJ tells Sammy how she misses her bestie Reza and then proceeds to text our hair extension guru and Persian sommelier, GG about how mad she is at Asa. Great idea, MJ! When Dad’s mad, go tell your hormonal Mom.
At breakfast the next morning, I found it just a little odd that the gang entered the dining room one by one in perfect receiving line protocol. Understandably, they all look like hung-over ragamuffins, except Lilly. She makes her entrance decked out in full jewelry and makeup, perfectly quaffed and glossed. Did she go to bed with a hair and make-up team? She gives the term beauty sleep new meaning. Speaking of hair, what’s with Reza’s pompadour?!? He looked like he had a mariachi engagement after brunch.
Back at the scene, MJ is the last to arrive. Despite the small war that started at the restaurant, she manages to give everyone the Persian double kiss greeting. Side note and quick lesson on Iranian greeting etiquette: Not that everyone does this, but it’s part of the culture to give everyone a proper greeting when saying hello. Greetings tend to be affectionate. Men kiss other men and women kiss other women. Sometimes it’s a double kiss. Sometimes it’s a triple kiss. Oh, and hellos and goodbyes take FOREVER! In a nutshell, as soon as you say “hello,” you might as well start your good-bye. Anyway, back to breakfast. . .as MJ sits down, she’s greeted with an apology from Asa. I have to say I was VERY proud of Asa for apologizing to MJ. It was very mature! As I was watching, I kept thinking, “This is great, but what about that text MJ sent to GG the night before?” I’m sure MJ’s thinking, I need a breathalyzer for my phone, and duct tape for my texting thumbs.
I stopped reading BRAVO blogs after Jay Mohr stopped blogging the RHONJ. Glad I found your recap. Very funny and entertaining!
I find MJ and GG, Sammy and maybe Mike the most genuine people in this group. Asa, Reza and Lilly look fake and weird, very soon they are going to be boring.
I love how everyone is so quick with judging MJ for the same bs the rest of the group does. Instead of griping about her "issues" why not blast her bff of 20+ years or the friend since first season for keep applying her drinks? Why not come down on them for never being true friends to her? All I read was your first page on this blog and can tell where your negativity will always be directed. I hope Reza ans Asa pays you extra for being the Shah butt kisser.
kat.bostonsteines you should read the rest of her recap. She actually loves MJ. She even mentioned it in her video.
The only thing funnier than the Shahs complete with clammy sammy, taking Lilly, a T totaler to Cabo, would have been for Reza and Mike standing at the bar - doing rubber necking dance moves to the beat of "what is Love?? BABY don't hurt me know more" ... a little salute to SNL and the Roxbury....and then to see Mike and Reza come up on Lilly and her purse, belly bopping her back and forth would have been more fun than I could have handled .... I hope someone does a spoof on this....but if it were me doing it...since Lillys purse costs enough to have its own birth certificate...Mike and Reza would have had to belly bop the Hermez as well...... BABY DON'T HURT ME NO MORE........ whooooa
I bumped into my hairdresser at the airport and we we were on the same flight. She offered me an ambian...I had never taken one before and it had no effect on me. The Pill bottle she took it out of was the biggest pill bottle I had ever seen in my life! I wondered what other pill she takes and does she take any while doing my hair, she is a little wacky!
My point, if MJ take pills, there were 3 or 4, all different shapes, she's probably not abusing them (unless she drinks with them!) But she does seem loopy at times.
Nadine, I'm so glad to read your recap! It's so funny!
If I were MJ I'd look at what the show is revealing about my life. It's not pretty. She is definitely getting the 'idiot edit' like Juicy Joe from RHONJ. She leaves her blow dryer, curling iron and brush behind in Mexico? She burns toast and has her eyelashes done while Reza is working? It's time to grow up, my dear. She is far too old to act this way.
Hilarious! "I’m sure MJ’s thinking, I need a breathalyzer for my phone, and duct tape for my texting thumbs." I'm still cracking up at this line.
Never bring a 15K bag to the club. As much as you try to protect it a drunk person may very well spill something on it. Sigh I wish I had these first world problems.
More about Lilly. I have a friend who doesn't drink also but she will party just as hard as the rest of us on vacation. Lilly could at LEAST dance around a little bit. It just seemed she was standing there just looking at everyone.
Reza's hair cut is really messed up. He needs a new hairdresser.
Lilly is beautiful. So what if she doesn't want to drink. Why keep saying she is a downer for being a people watcher? She REALLY doesn't like sweat.
