So, listen, what was I thinking? I was either feeling extraordinarily amibitious and full of myself or super-drunk. What was I doing answering the door in a towel? I look like MJ wearing a bikini. Oh my God. I'm whore-ified. Whore-ified. Not with an "h," but W-H-O-R-E-ified. WHORE-IFIED.
Then my old ass is going to a club, fist-pumping like I'm in Jersey, popping bottles, licking armptis, and making out with anyone that would make out with me? I need therapy. Actually I'm in therapy. I need to fire my therapist and hire a new therapist cause clearly the s---'s not working. Oh my Gpd. The Shahs of Sunset is over. I"m moving to Portland. It'll be the Shahs minus Reza. I need to go into the Witness Relocation Persians are Never Going to Talk to Me Program.
Then, I go to the Tehran drinks party, and people are telling me Tehran is [MJ's]cousin. I don't have any cousins that aren't my cousins. Do you? Cousins are cousins and friends are friends in my life. There are no cousin friends in my world.
So we're there, her ass is there, looking like a 10-pound sausage stuffed into a five-pound casing telling Lilly she shouldn't be wearing that outfit. Bitch, do the mirrors in your house talk to you and tell you you look good? Cause if they do, they're lying to you. Like, oh my God. Then I give a toast, and I exclude her, and you guys see her chunky butt walking down the street, thinking I'm being mean when actually she's the one always throwing me under the bus. I'm just stronger than she is.
I'm still thinking about the jelly rolls hanging over the towel when I went to the door. What was i thinking? Oh my God. That is the worst of the worst. And did I spray on, like, PAM, on my face or something? Like, I was greasy as hell. Can you guys even see me or did I blur the screen? Oh my God.
You and Asa came off terribly this season. You may have kicked gg out of the group and tried to expose mj but in my opinion the two of you are the ones who seem like hateful and vile people. I absolutely think both of you are fake, nasty, jealous , and mean. Neither one of you is a good person or a good friend. You both need help and you need to see what everyone else sees because you didn't accomplish your goal of making gg and mj look bad. You made yourselves look like some of the worst two people I have ever seen on reality tv or real life! Get help!
Reza, your aggressive behavior towards MJ and GiGi screams insecurity. I'm sorry if you were teased all your life and have issues, but it's not their fault. Get in control of yourself, mon cher! Nothing they have done to you deserves your hostility and angry comments.
So much to say, but I think one word sums you up,...Despicable! Grow up your pushing forty,..just despicable!
I aready posted to.MJ. I realize what her problem is, besides insecure and jealous, SHE IS IN LOVE WITH YOU! IT is the only thing that makes sense!! She acts like a jealous girlfriend! She puts down your female friends, but not your male friends. She cannot tell anyone of course, but I really think that is why she acts so possesive! She wishes you weren't gay!! It is her biggest secret. Think about it, explains everything!!
I enjoy watching you Reza, but you need to treat MJ with a lot more respect. If she hurt you previously take the time to pull her aside and discuss it between the two of you rather than taking it out on her in the crass manner you've demonstrated. A friendship that has lasted that long must be true and important, please step back to evaluate what you're doing and take the steps to rectify it. Your comments are hurtful and mean spirited. Love MJ, on another note, can not stand Lilly, she may have gone to an Ivy league school, but when she speaks she sounds like there is nothing upstairs. She's a beautiful girl who seems to have a lot going for her, if you're her friend tell her to stop "dumb-ing" herself down and talking like a ditzy 12 year old girl (PS pleeeeease get her to stop wearing her hair like an oversized Dolly Parton!!!!! It takes so much away from her beauty!). At the end of the day your relationship with MJ is way more important than any one interaction that has transpired between you two, step back, think about it and work it out. I miss watching the fun nice Reza from last season :)
Reza, I have to admit that you won me over in the first season. However this season I can't understand how much has changed. Before you start with your "Jelly Roll" beyond rude comments, I would suggest you take a deep breath. Because it's all of the JELLY ROLLS and RIBS that are making you this famous now.
Ever look in a mirror Reza? You sure are no God's gift yourself. You are hateful and not a good friend. That little piece of fluff is loving watching you hurt MJ. If I were MJ, I would never be friends with you again. With friends like you, a girl doesn't need any enemies.
You used to be my favorite last season, but you've become everything you claim to hate this season. Mean spirited-ness presented under the guise of "keeping it real" only shows what true colors a person has been hiding underneath the surface.
1st, besides the fact that you(Reza) are HOT, I agree with you. MJ is the 1 that is 2 faced talking about everyone and playing this dramatic victim.The truth hurts and thats why she is acting this way. As for the crazy in the head chick, she is just a lunatic looking to make a name out of crazy(truth is she probably will) but you are 100% in the right for not associating with her. Love the show!!!!!
I used to enjoy you last season. Now - not so much. How vile you have become to someone who has been in your life for 20-25 yrs. This behavior is so distasteful and has really shown you in an ugly, hateful light.
Reza you are so 2-faced! You also made degrading remarks about Asa's wardrobe behind her back too... and now you're trying to push MJ out of her office and replace her with Mike... you're no friend!! That boyfriend is going to dump your behind cuz...well your "every gay for himself" attitude will lead you to be a lonely old person... As for MJ...she needs your friendship to help her through her addiction.. What kind of friend are you anyway???
Mj is a sneak. She claims her Mother treats her badly and she is just like her Mother. She insults anyone she knows (or just meets - like Lilly) and thinks its OK to do that. I don't blame you for taking a stand. If she were a true friend, she shouldn't be supporting GG against you. She does blow like the wind - whomever she's with is the person she sides with. No loyality from her at all. It was laughable when she told you that you'd end up a lonely old man - still not owing her despicable behavior and trying to tell you how you should live. .Again, just like her own Mother whom she complains about the way she treats her. Get on with your business and life - if you're friendship with MJ is strong time ill heal itself. The least friends should ask and expect of each otheri s loyalty and respect - something she doens't do at all.
Okay, the dress wasn't so becoming of MJ but she doesn't deserve this rant from you, who is supposed to be like "a brother" to her. You say you don't like how she is treating Lilly? Well, maybe there is something about Lilly that bugs MJ. Sometimes when people meet it aint all peaches and cream...who knows...but you being MJ's friend and Lilly's friend should of taken a back seat. Let them two grown ass women figure out how they are going to get along. By you choosing a side is pretty damn shady of you. I've always enjoyed watching you but this side of you sucks.
Reza, while I may not agree with what MJ has said and done, out of respect for your 20 year friendship you should of taken her on the side and explained to her why she was wrong and assured her that she has nothing to worry about and that you love her. Think of all the GOOD times you have had in 20 years with MJ. I can never understand why, when people are friends for so long (or not so long) they say insulting things about them. To quote my favorite word that you use, "BITCH",
"BITCH, your 40. Grow up, treat yourself and your friends with respect. What you put out to the universe comes back."
Other than that, I absolutely adore you and hope that your "MEAN GIRL" behavior was just a misstep.
Reza, I would be like you too, OMG, if I saw this episode of myself and I were you. WTH were you thinking?
I understand that you were HURT by MJ's comment about your weight and that she supported GG (which is DUMB), but man, did you ever take it to a limit!!!
MJ is about the best friend a person could hope for - outside looking in.
I like you. Really.
You must be in a mid-ife crisis or else you're hormonal; nevertheless, your mantra, 'don't ask, don't tell' is EXACTLY what your FATHER did to destroy your family!
Just because you did not or COULD not value that relationship is not reason enough for you to DISCOUNT the loyalty of a friend.
You are a self absorbed pig. You are going to end up just like Jersey Shore's "The Situation" Mike Sorrentino. You were awesome in Season 1 and went to hell in a hand basket in season 2. Went to your head and will all go away, then when you try to fall back onto your real estate business that was once a success, no one will take you seriously.
I am on team Right. If MJ is a true friend of 20 years then there isn't a need to be threatened by a new person being added to the group. Something is wrong with you when you don't want your friend(s) to have other friends. She did insult Lily. She looked beautiful in that dress and MJ's dress was clearly too tight and she does not have an ultra lean figure to showcase that type of dress she wore (although I think she looks just fine with the shape that she has). People in glass houses should not throw stones. Clearly she is jealous of Lily and shouldn't be, but until she recognizes her own value, she will always be threatened. It has nothing to do with friendship but her own insecurities as a person. I, like Reza take up for my friends and if one friend gets into it with another and that friend is out of line, then she/he will know it. Its not about sides but being respectful to one another.
If that is how you treat someone you've known for 20 years then you and Lilly belong together. I can no longer stand hearing her whiny voice and you looked like a dirty old man in the club. It looked as if you were sucking the life force out of one guy when you were kissing him and kept your eyes open, just creepy. MJ is right, you will end up gray and alone.
And by the way, it's not just your personal appearance that is making you ugly -- it's your mouth and what comes out of it!
TEAM MJ ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!
What happened to you? Reza you were the reason I watch Shahs of Sunset now you're the reason I won't be watching... how you're treating MJ is digusting!!!
reza, i do not like you this season you are nothing but mean and nasty. making fun of mj's weight is mean and who cares if she calls him her cousin or not? people do that. you are not fun to watch anymore.
Reza, I'm a teacher and recently read Persepolis with my students. I'm wondering why everyone on Shahs uses the term "Persian" instead of "Iranian." Isn't Iranian the original term and Persian the Greek word for Iranians? Thanks!
L.I.oness no. it was originally the persian empire. persepolis is the greek term for city of persia (suffix polis meaning city. like metropolis).
@L.I.oness you are the smart one here, there is no Persia anymore. They just want to fool us by calling Iran Persia Just too embarrassed to say they are Iranians.
Reza, you really crack me up so much...love ready your vlog entries. That would be something, Reza in Portland, rolling Shahs style, LOLMJ loves to dish it, but when challenged or pushed back, she falsely postulates herself like a victim. Plus, wasn't Sammy the one who at the end of Season 1 told MJ to "check herself", after that disastrous outing with her ex???Good luck in RE with Mike, I know you guys are going to make a lot of money together...and the relationship with Lilly has brought us that amazing bikini model to look at, as well as her sister. Happy New Year 2013
MJ was your friend for 25 years. Your approach to ending your friendship with her was harsh and cruel! Lilly's hair and make up is overdone. Unless you are in a las vegas show, make up caked on is gross! MJ was the real deal! MJ is what a real woman looks like, not a little girl!
Reza, what's up with you? I actually enjoy you on the show, you're my fave, but it seems you're being a little harsh with MJ. Just saying...
What century are you living in? You know there is no Persia in this day and age. Just say you are Iranian . Stop fooling people with this Persian nonsense.
Seriously, Your comment out gays is the reason why so many look at us as just "sex addicts" All of us dont wanna be dirty old men chasing after lil skinny white boys 20yrs yonger than us. If you wanna put yourself in the I just wanna screw my life away caegory than speak for you not all of us.
I'm not going to get into the whole, she started, he did it crap--that would be a waste of time! However, I will say how very disappointed with both Reza's cruel words and actions! To be willing to treat a friend of 20+years as harsh as you've treated MJ not only embarrasses you as an adult, but says more about you as a friend.And for what? Twitter followers, Facebook fan-friends? Money? The right to hand onto the walking Barbie doll Lilly's Bentley bumper? Season 1 Reza, was considerate, down-to-earth, funny, and a Fashion beast! Season 2 Reza's a fashion beast; I still like your bow ties!
Dude you guys are talking about MJ being almost 40 so that makes you almost 40. You guys need to grow up, your blog this week was uncalled for. MJ is rude but so are you. The immaturity of you guys is just sad. Lilly can fight her own battles, so you guys need to stop and learn to take stock of who you are as an individual.
Reza, you r so cruel I was totally shock. I thought u were special and I loved your loyalty to your friends, but not anymore. I just removed your show off my recording list. There is never a good enough reason to bully someone, especially a friend that has been there for you over 20 years. Sometimes we do things and don't even realize what we're doing, but Sammy told you to go after your best friend, and you didn't. Why would you treat any one that way, especially her, your blood, said by you. So it's not ok for her to say that Tehran is her cousin but its ok for her to consider you her blood. Come on Reza you F...Ed UP and you know it. Was her dress too tight and she should never have worn it, yes but if you would have been her friend you would have taken her to the side and let her know that it's not her most flattering dress on her. As for her behavior towards Lilly, it's your fault because she feels threaten by your all of a sudden so called friend Lilly. Can't you see that she is jealous and afraid to loose her friendship with you. Then to top things off you want to bring in Mike as a partner. I just want to know where was all of these people the last 20 years while MJ has been your friend. Fix it, fix it now or you will regret it.
i think it was a dirty thing he did to bring in this guy to take MJ.s desk. however if MJ never comes in to use it. does she ever work sounds like she is to busy with her hair or nails. Rasa and MJ are long time friends they should make up. this bunch acts like a children..
Dude you used to be nice, did fame go to your head? You like Lily cause she can make you money. I really think I can't watch anymore. You have become nasty. What happened to that man that was so upset with his father that he cried. Who went with you than an held your hand? MJ. This Lily is shallow and I am not jealous of her. Don't think she is all that, her sister is but she just isn't. MJ is your blood, your words.
Reza, you are hilarious BUT you do owe MJ an apology! You totally dissed MJ over money?! Seriously, she was there for you when you met with your estranged father! Do her dresses look like they are cutting off her circulation and she should be hanging upside down in a butcher shop..yes..BUT she is still beautiful and rather than make fun of her..maybe you should work out with her.
Reza, I'm so disapointed with you regarding MJ, shame shame shame on you, smelling arm pits!!!! If your what represents the Persian community, they must be cringing.
Reza, if ur stronger then her why do u have to belittle her. I thought gays don't bully?? Reza, I think your funny, very strange about the arm pit hair, but what ever floats your boat. Your NOT FAT, buddy, ur slightly built for comfort. Men have it much easier to loose weight , u don't have raging hormones monthly tht mess with, ur weight, ur mind. You seem like a clever fellow, u have seen the way MJs mom TREATS HER! ABRASIVE, DISRESPECTFUL, DISMISSIVE, that's MJS MO, she has never learned a proper way to get to know Lilly. Or any female / male she feels is competition?. She's jealous, as MJ was on top, and then you dumped her ass on the floor, for Lilly, hence MJ's Abrasive, disrespect, and dismissive attitude towards u as well. When you bully, it's doesnt matter wether its WEIGHT or being gay, it's still is WRONG.. Your toast was like a rant by a spoiled BOY, not a friend. MJ is best to be ignored, she's late ignore her, don't slip down into MJ 's moms nasty vile, disrespectful, vulgar vocabulary, .. Say MJ u talk to people the way your mom speaks to you, how does that make you feel?. What you said was BS and you new I was sensitive about my weight! Oh MJ I can have new friends, u don't need to be like the mother hen, and dagger Lilly, every chance. MJ will sink her own boat, let's hope Reza doesn't go down with her!! don't bully, it's not acceptable!!
Reza, you comments about monogamy in gay relationships being similar to don't ask don't tell reinforces stereotypes about gay men. There are many gay men who are in monogamous relationships by choice and are perfectly happy and just as gay as you are. Grow up.
Reza: Never would I imagine that the person you were last season would behave in such a way. Your behavior towards MJ is disgusting. Obviously this fleeting fame is going to your head.
