Speaking of doctors and lawyers, in this episode we also learn that Persian Barbie, Lilly, used to practice law! However, she’s not practicing right now because she didn’t feel you could have sex appeal in the courtroom. So she started a "swimgerie" line. It’s a cross between swimwear and lingerie, or as I like to call it: waterproof underwear. I’m glad she’s decided to go into a more highbrow profession. Her Iranian parents must be proud. She’s a business owner! But Lilly said it herself; at least she has law to fall back on. . .or her boobs to fall forward on. Too much?
We finally meet MJ’s dad as she dyes his hair blue on her Persian rug. First of all, do you know how expensive those rugs are? Let’s just say if it could fly, it would. MJ should really consider relocating her beauty shop from the rug to the kitchen. Second, where did MJ buy her Dad’s hair dye? The 99 Cent Store? Because he looked like the Persian Papa Smurf with hairy ears, minus the red tights. No joke.
Once I got passed the blue hair, I was able to finally focus on her Dad; and I LOVE him. I feel really bad for him because I bet Vida used to walk all over him like MJ’s Persian rug.
Later in the episode MJ goes to therapy to talk about her Mommy issues. I can’t help but feel bad for her sometimes. Anyone who had to deal with a mom like Vida deserves a hug. But I’ll say this…MJ needs to move farther than a quarter-mile away from her mom. It’s time to cut the umbilical cord, even if it’s gold. Being Persian, I know it’ll be tough for a Persian girl to be far away from her mom, but maybe Vida’s European vacation will be good for everyone, except for her bird.
"...with (insert almost any ethnicity) parents, they have this inherent need for their child to be a doctor or a lawyer."
Many Persians on this show have complained (BRAGGED) of this, but it is so common among many, many ethnicities. Surely you must realize you are not unique.
Who are you, by the way?
Since GG does not appear to have a blog I will comment here. WOW, GG have you missed that your behaviors are immature, unattractive and abusive? Something wrong with you girl. Perhaps you have been watching too many of the MTV reality shows where drinking and beating each other up is the norm. Keep it up and you will be arrested. Your abusiveness is not cute. Perhaps taking responsibility for your anger is a start. Therapy does not take responsibility for your behavior you do. Try it sometime.
GG is a spoiled, selfish, whiney, ill-mannered, unintelligent, pig of a woman. She looks like a little rat. Her dad really isn't doing her any favors by continuing to support her lazy ass. The best thing this train wreck can do is up the therapy sessions and get on some meds, because she is seriously cra-cra. And someday she is going to mess with the wrong person and get her ass kicked. Now THAT I would like to see.
Could this group get anymore entertaining?! Although I'm glad GG & MJ are getting some help. I hope it works!
I LOVED MJ's scene with her Dad!!! LOVED!!! That was my fav part of the whole episode. They are so cute together, I'm so glad she has at least one parent to have a meaningful relationship with... they were beyond adorable! ♥♥♥ Let's see more of them!!
I am not sure, but I think GG converted to Vulcan this season...we all remember Dr Spock of Star Trek....his pointy ears was his trademark Vulcan heritage...this season we see that GG has achieved the same Vulcanistic fashion statement, by shaving the hair behind her ears with her hair pulled tightly up....i am quite sure with her skills with sharp knives, this was her own doing. This look makes her look even more sinister as she talks about cutting other peoples faces....she has achieved the look of a Vulcan, but can she separate her fingers to do the Vulcan sign?
i have to bring attention to the comment gg made to mj about asa's body and hips being large. anyone taken a good look at mj. she's not getting any smaller as time progresses. they all need to take a good look at themselves. not sure how long i'm going to be able to tolerate gg's behavior.she's not a pretty woman anyway and her lack of personality isn't making her look any better. her sister's right get a job!!!! i have a hard time taking anything serious from a person who at 30 has never had a job.
hey.... if little miss GG was concerned about her ''boyfriend's'' nose she would not have brought it up in front of the cameras....... she's dangerous.
If I can recall GG stated in season 1 that she did not like ugly people, please somebody give this trainwreck a mirror. GG is sickening won't be watching this season.
I agree with Najine. GG is full of excuses when it comes to her behavior. On WWHL, when Andy asked her about Omid reaching up in her dress, she told Andy that he was fixing her dress, but she told MJ that she doesn't remember. OMG...what a tool, and GG is so annoying. GG should start acting like a lady and quit trying so hard to act like she came from a hard life in the streets. Her behavior makes her come off so ugly on this show. She may want to pick on Asa's looks and weight, however, GG should look in the mirror, not a pretty look. Her face is so squishy length wise. I am so glad that her sister told her off, it's about time. Regarding MJ, I agree with Asa, she does play both sides of the coin. I guess the nose comment from Asa to Omid hit too close to home with GG since she had to downsize her big nose. Ouch!
If team GG already sailed, then I am definitely team MJ cos I thought that this one time GG was kinda right. She started out really trying to reason with Asa but apparently Asa is never wrong. And there is nothing wrong with MJ saying she's never heard Asa say she likes big noses, maybe she really hadn't. Me thinks Asa is a hypocrite!
