Meanwhile GG goes to her sister Leila's house, where we meet Omid, a dude that GG claims to have "history" with. Leila and GG have a heated discussion in the kitchen about GG's lack of involvement in their hair extension company. Leila thinks GG needs to step it up and put her "big girl panties" on, while GG claims she doesn't even know how to work. She thinks Leila should be more empathetic. After all, it is her first job. . .at 30. Apparently, GG thinks 30 is the new 15. #firstworldproblems
The episode continues with Reza and Mike at the carwash. Mike shows off his 5-series Beemer that still has dealer plates. According to Mike -- the minute you put real plates on a car you can't claim it’s new anymore. He's right. That's why I haven't taken the wrapper off my computer yet. It still has that new blog smell. Anyway, Mike tells Reza that he's upset about showing 60 properties just to make $10 grand.
We learn, it's hard out there for a pimp. . .in the valley.
As the day progresses, MJ and her mom arrive at aunt Ziba's house. They sit down to what starts off as a nice family lunch. Vida tells the group that she's going to Europe for six months, which is a little longer than she led on while in the car with MJ earlier. MJ takes a stab at her mom by toasting her departure and then asks her mom if she's going to give her a birthday present before she leaves. Vida replies that her present is leaving. I wonder if MJ is more upset about her mom leaving or the fact she might have to check on Juju while she's gone. MJ reminds us how critical her mom is of her, and then Vida tells the table how she hates everyone. Things fire up when MJ gives another toast to all the moms that don't judge their children and Vida accuses her of drinking too much. MJ starts crying and her mom lovingly replies that all she does is drink wine and cry. I would too if I were MJ. I'd drink the whole minibar. Then Vida storms out, but tells us in interview that she shows her love for MJ by stalking her. Or -- as she puts it -- she drives to her house every time she hears of a white Mercedes in an accident to make sure it wasn't MJ. She's a little like DeNiro in Meet the Parents.
just watched the old version where sammy sets up mj with an old boyfriend. why are we celebrating how badly these men treat women. its really sad. these guys are all pretty fugly so not sure why they are so arrogant. the women on the show are one million times better then the men. go get 'em ladies - sammy should look in the mirror before he tells someone to get fit. what a joke he is.
Nadine- I loved it! This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what you can bring to this for comic relief! I can't wait to read more of it!!! Good job girl!!!
I love your blog-Awesome start to this season-you are sooo funny :0)
But Coconut-what about Coconut?! I'm completely captivated by this silly little spinning fluffy little cotton ball of a dog!
Yes they are self-absorbed, but that's why we love them so much, with the exception of GiGi. Reza is the best thing on the show.
