Read the full transcript after the jump.

Hey bitches. It's your resident gay reza. coming to you for the last time to video blog about Episode 10. i can't believe we're at the end of the road. Are you guys sad? Because I'm about to cry.

Kind of like when i was about to cry when Mike's dad was talking to him in Farsi about how he wasn't there for Mike as a child. It really tore me up. And to see how loving and amazing his parents are towards him, and in return how appreciative and respectful he is towards his parents. That is the quintessential, Persian parent-child, child-parent relationship. I loved it. and I'm so happy that you guys got to see that, because I come from a broken home so I can't bring that to you guys. So I'm really happy Mike was.

Can we talk about the chairs that you saw that the parents were sitting in? Those look more like thrones than they did chairs. I want to know where I can get me one of those.

Am I crazy or does MJ's mom have OCD? She's a backseat driver. She's telling her how to dress. It's insane. LIke I feel for my girl, every time she goes out with her mom. I'm thinking to myself that Vida is her mom and that Vida is not my mom. Because let me tell you, if that was my mom It'd be going down in a whole different way.

Actually, you know what, maybe i should go shopping with Vida because I would save a lot of money because I would never end up buying anything because she never tells her poor daughter that she looks good in anything. That was crazy.

And then, the most important thing in this episode: Persh-a-Pelooza.

I honestly felt like the parent who had the kid that knocked it out of the park. I was so proud of her. I was so honored to have Andy there. It was such an amazing night.

And the best part was that food fight. Watching my girl MJ slip and slide like a meatball in a like bowl of marinara sauce. It was f---king awesome. She was going down here and then coming up here. Resurfacing, going back down, and popping right back up. it was amazing. I wish we had spent all night in that trailer. And I don't want to know what kind of bill Asa got for the cleaning of that trailer. Cuz lemme tell you, the shirt I was wearing the shirt I was wearing and the jeans I was wearing, both of which were brand new had to be put in the trash, because MJ's talons ripped and shredded my shirt, and I split my jeans open. You know what that means: it's time for my fat ass to go on a diet.

Anyway, it was a pleasure and I'm honored that you guys let me into your house and into your homes and allowed me to share my life with you.

Asa: MJ Is Always Dismissive Towards Me

Asa explains her complicated relationship with MJ.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to finally confront MJ at the leggings store?
Asa Soltan Rahmati: As soon as we walked into the leggings store, MJ started dissing Asifa and also, as usual, throwing shade at me. I reached my boiling point with MJ being so rude and mean to pretty girls that come into our group. She does this every time. I'm a real girl's girl and I'm not down with women tearing other women down because of their own insecurities. That's what that was about, it wasn’t only because she was throwing her usual shade my way.

Bravotv.com: How were you feeling about Mike after your lunch with him?
ASR: Mike was pretty checked out the whole lunch, and our connection was fading more and more unfortunately. I was happy that I had face-to-face time with him to discuss the matter in person.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised MJ apologized to you?
ASR: Our friendship is not in a good place. MJ is always very dismissive towards me and throws low blows and shade whenever she can. Everybody who is close to her knows this and feels it at different times. Well, actually, only her girlfriends see this side of MJ. MJ is very different towards her guy friends than she is with her girlfriends. She'll literally treat me like sh-- one night and then reach out to me the next morning (acting like nothing happened) when she feels lonely or vulnerable, and of course I am there for her. So it confuses me. This is why I wasn't jumping for joy when she apologized. Words are cheap. Let your actions speak.


I'm not used to abusive relationships, and that's what my friendship with MJ is like. I think maybe to her this type of relationship is normal -- to be loved and abused by the same person. I need our friendship to be in a more honest, loyal, and real place than it is.

As far dodge ball, I'm from a family who plays a lot of board games and sports, and everybody in my family talks smack and is very competitive. To us, talking smack and cracking up is half the fun of playing team games. It's all for the fun of it. For MJ to single me out (even though we were all playing rough and screaming) and say that this is because I was tense (or whatever she was saying) is hilarious to me. This is yet another funny situation she manages to paint in a negative, shady light.
