Lollipops, Diamonds, and Family

Ep 8: Reza gives us the down-and-dirty on diamonds, Rosh Hashanah, and GG and her lollipop!

Read the full transcript of Reza's blog, after the jump!

You guys just watched the eighth episode; I just watched the eighth episode, and we really have some important stuff to talk about. But actually the most important thing I want to talk to you guys about are my shoes, which we can’t really see, so I’ll talk them off and show them to you. How great are these boots? They’re business on the top, and party on the bottom! They’re my Prada mullet shoes! Aren’t they cute?

As far as the episode goes, my two favorite friends that love to indulge in the libation, specifically GG and MJ, are trying to have serious conversation about some really heavy shit, like morals and character, and to hear the two of them get after it like that is really fantastic, especially when MJ’s hair looked like she has just gotten nailed to the wall. Were you guys noticing all that stuff that was going on? And then GG rolls up to Omid’s house, and Omid had body for days! I wasn’t really paying attention to what GG was saying, because I was just concentrating on Omid’s yummy torso. And what is GG doing sucking on that lollipop? It makes me think she went over there know she wanted to suck on something, so she kept the lollipop in her mouth so she could abstain from sucking something else. I don’t know; that’s what I was thinking.Oh Diamond Water! Hello! How amazing was that ginormous diamond?! She was putting it there and there [points to his head] and I’d be putting it here [points to his pocket] and taking it the F out of there! Especially that big-ass one! It had my name all over it.

We get to New York, and honestly, I don’t know about you guys, but I’m so sick of crying. I can’t watch myself cry anymore. But it was a really amazing lunch I had with my Dad. And as close as we got last year, this lunch brought us that much closer. And I was so happy to have MJ and Mike and Asa with my at Rosh Hashanah which was so beautiful and so special to me. My east coast family is so amazing. And I’m serious, they switched my grandmother at the Old Folks’ home! I don’t know if she got a lobotomy, or took an ecstasy, or a Xanax, but something happened on the way to my Uncle’s house, because she was really,really amazing and we had the trip of a lifetime. We had so much fun, and I’m really happy that you got to take that trip with me.

I hope you liked episode eight as much as I did! Call me. Peace!

MJ: Charlie Did a Fine Job

MJ dishes on how Charlie did meeting her friends for the first time.

Bravotv.com: Are you a fan of cooking? What's your signature dish?
MJ: Something you may not know about me is that I love to cook! Cooking equates to quality time with family. My signature dish is Polo Morgh and Tah-dig. It's a low fat, 30 minute recipe I've mastered, without skipping out on what gives it its succulent flavor. It's a great source of protein, greens, and for me, on a small bed of crispy basmati rice. Cooking is fun, and it's a big quality of life change I do not want to omit from my life, because cooking is a form of meditation for me.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like you were being possessive of the gift bag items?
MJ: Other than sheer excitement, and a side of impatience, I'm not sure what came over me when we were looking through the gift bags. These kinds of things can only go two ways for me: slow and boring or fast, feisty, and fun! And I love me a high-end candle. A yummy, sexy way to create ambience.

Bravotv.com: How nervous were you to bring Charlie to meet your friends? Did he do a good job?
MJ: Yes, yes, yes, I was very nervous for Charlie to meet everyone tonight. I really wanted to make sure that the night was going to go smoothly for Charlie; that's all I had on my mind. It was up to me to keep everyone composed, classy, and cordial all the way through the last drop of the night. Why? Because we are such a tough crowd to bring new friends into and introduce new people. I think Charlie did a fine job, under the circumstances. My friends respected my wish to give this new love a chance.
