Asa defends her methods.

on Nov 19, 20130

Hey, lovers!

Sooo this club scene. MJ is my girl but it was wrong to expose Golnesa like that in front of Shawn. I get it -- the whole two-day break thing is silly, but regardless of that, friends don't do that. She should have pulled Golnesa aside privately and dealt with that, if anything.  

It really makes me happy seeing Reza and Merc be so close again. It's good to see them have have fun together, even though they are two mischevious Leos. Ha!

I'm disappointed that Lilly is unable to take responsibility for her own action and own it, instead of blaming us for how she acted. She said what she wanted to MJ at Aventine (and vise versa) -- how is that anybody else's fault but hers?

As far as friendships goes: we all have been friends for many years, and most of us grew up together. Sure, it's not the easiest thing to be the new person, but one thing is for sure... the way to not be part of a group of friends is to think you're perfect and only criticize them. I welcomed her with open arms from the beginning, and if she asked me for advice I would tell her to be less judgmental and put more effort into her relationships. Friendship is a two-way street.

Ahhh The Olympic Collection, where the carpet indeed does smell like ghormeh sabzi. Ha! Mike's brother's graduation party was a standard Persian party get-down. We come, we throwdown, we dance, and we go home. What did you Loves think of my look??  

MJ and Golnesa's beef is a bit funny to me, and I dont really take it seriously. They enjoy bickering one moment, then being best friends the next. They must enjoy it.

Diamond Water: intention and vision are necessary forces when working to make your dreams come true/starting a business that is near and dear to your heart. One of my dreams is to make the most incredible water available for the world to drink.  

I don't care what naysayers and non-believers say or think about my ways and rituals. I have never been a follower, and side chatter/negativity will never stop me. I'm always going to do as I believe 100%, every time, whether it's popular or not. I believe in intention. I believe in love. I believe in energy. I believe that we can manifest our destiny and make our dreams come true by believing in ourselves, working hard, and never giving up. Don't believe me -- just watch. #Priestess

Asa I am dying to know what you use to protect yourself from the "evil eye". Business suggestion: recommend or share your product. Clearly you are good at protecting yourself from it so do tell...................maybe a book idea? Love me for this idea later....or better yet  send a shout out in it to me !!!

There's one born every minute -- guess someone may buy into your crap.  You try way too hard to be walking the edge of cool that you are absurd.  But...I love watching the Bravo shows --  like watching monkeys at the zoo.  Keep me laughing....today's version of the stooges.

No Asa this isn't a "new world" this is AMERICA and I'm getting sick and tired of your pop princess crap do you watch the faces of the people you spew your garbage to?? They are trying NOT to laugh but the face can't lie. Go back to where you came from.

The funniest thing at the infamous dinner was watching you play "hoover vacuum" sitting in the middle of two fighting women. A Priestess, how dare you....Asa you are an assa!!

Is it at all possible for you to take responsibility at all and say "I should of said something" and leave it at that? Without then turning it around, and then blaming Lily, for not, opening herself up to the group, and this and that. It was very simple, do you consider her as a friend, yes or no? No major, in depth, it is new, it is developing, stop trying to make yourself real better because, you don't want to take responsibility for being a jerk, plan and simple. Just like she said, if the role was reversed she would of stood up for you, and you would of appreciated it, whether it was a new friendship or not. You are suppose to be the enlightened person, and not so much, just when you want to sell something apparently. And why would Lily open herself up to a bunch of people that constantly rip her apart? I don't see you putting yourself out there to her to much either. You should of stood up for her, plan and simple, you didn't, you were wrong, own it, stop making excuses, maybe we could respect you more if you would.

Asa, one piece of advice - spirituality cannot fix bad business decisions.  Designing a bottle and cap without first validating that it will work with the bottling equipment is an amateur mistake.  If you want to be a priestess, great, but if you want to be rich, partner with someone who has more business sense.

Asa - More power to you and to your methods for bringing a new product to market that you believe it.  Far be it from me to say whether it will have the kind of energy you desire or not.

 

One thing to note, however, is that it's not just California that used to be Native American land but all of the United States.  All different peoples but certainly all the land was Native American land.  I hope your goal for saging was not to rid those energies but to embrace them.  Good luck.

this chick just said california was native american soil.  well no shiz sherlock, all of america used to be in the hands of millions of natives... but thanks for your input.

I just can't get over how fantastic all of you think you are. As for Asa, do you ever check the mirror before you leave home? Just because you have your own style doesn't make it "in style" or wearable or cute. The Persian community is a great community but you and your entourage give them a bad name...

disappointed in your actions at the dinner part. I liked and defended you in season 1 when all your "friends" made fun of your weight, fashion sense, and overall persona. I liked you still in season 2 although the whole Persian pop priestess looks like it might have started to go to your head. but this season, your silence in this mean girl mj attack against lily has turned the tables on what I thought was a well grounded you...

I love the fact that you are not a follower and that is clear. You are your own woman.

The storyline surrounding Lilly is another story altogether...from the point of view of the viewer. No one that watches this show knows your stories before this show began but from we sit, I don't think anyone would think Lilly was in the wrong. She invited MJ who isn't her friend but yours and MJ failed to rsvp in the allotted time. They aren't friends so Lilly wasn't going to bend over backwards. Her party was nonsense and it looked funny...in a comical way..but would have been more interesting if MJ was there.

Lets face it...without MJ this show would be boring.

Lilly is lying when she claimed MJ said you guys weren't her friends!! Lilly said to MJ you have NO friends!! MJ said these are my friends first!! Far cry from what Lilly is claiming!!!

Asa (I know she probably doesn't read this but...), 

I am an materials engineer  (new grad but seriously had a 3.5 GPA from a credible and accredited university) and I know there is a way to make your diamond water dream come true with the diamond water bottle! It is a gorgeous idea and I think it helps people feel good and feel spiritually connected. I think it is a very marketable idea and I respect you so much for being an entrepreneur! Represent the women in this world girl! You are the smartest and most logical chicka on the show and just a btw, the whole Lilly and MJ showdown at the restaurant... I would have been not caring, like for real its there shit and you knew better than to get in the middle!

" the way to not be part of a group of friends is to think you're perfect and only criticize them."

 

How did Lilly criticize anyone?  She just rightly showed how mean MJ is.  That's all.  That's not thinking you're "perfect".

Clearly your Jackson "connection" has you thinking well, it worked for Michael...Dream on wannabe..... He had brilliant talent which you seriously lack.

Screw the haters...Asa.  You're definitely a go-getter.  So do your thing!

I understand you want to stay out of the Lily and MJ situation because there is enough heat from last season but don't turn on someone else (Lily) to right your wrong. If this was last season and you had a birthday party that required seating, A) you would not even invite GG and B) even if you did, you would not go out of your way for someone who always treated you like a punk. If someone tried to break you and your man up, i don't think you'd be as chill as GG.

I was once a huge fan of yours and Reza but the truth of it is this... Lilly wasn't criticizing anyone until it came down to her being criticized. A true friend would have tried to initiate them to be resolve their issues in a calmer way. Instead you sat there like it Ali vs Frazier fight and that was the most despicable thing of it all. I thought you were a better person than that but I'm guessing based on how all of you act the "Persian" way to be a friend is to screw them over, not be real, and care nothing flashy things. How is it okay for people to dis-invite GG to a party last year and this year Lilly takes to time to invite everyone (and she didn't have to) None of you have class.. It took a second for MJ to RSVP and choose to wait til the night before to talk to Lilly. You are all shameful friends.

Asa, I hated you last season since you were part of the mean girls. I actually find you quite entertaining and funny this season. The steak comment at the dinner was hilarious.

With "friends" like you, no one needs enemies. You're not as cool as you seem to think. So much for spreading love and positive energy. You're a joke, a hypocrite and a fake.

Not to criticize? You are joking, right?  All of you went after MJ last year, ALL of you! Don't you people watch your selves? I mean, damn! Here is a tip for all of you , grow the hell up.

you looked beautiful at the party! Blue and gold are your colors...I think it's nice you voiced your opinion and said what MJ did to GG by outing her was wrong.

Asa is a little nutso....if I ever saw her acting like that in a public place I would surely call 911. Is this some kind of religion or something????

MJ was straight up wrong to rat GG out!  Why can't any of you call her out on that?  I really felt sorry for MJ when you, Reza and Lilly all ganged up against her last season and called her a drug addict etc.  I thought GG was a straight up loon bird but GG was MJ's only friend - and for MJ now to stab GG in the back now?  I think MJ and Reza deserve each other.  They are both backstabbing users who are mean people.  You would be wise to stay away from them and concentrate on your business venture.

Actually Asa I'm starting to be a believer!! Good for you!! Positive energy can never hurt.... I can't wait to drink the water!! If I am able to purchase the water on the east coast?!  Will that water come from the vat that contains the diamond energy??!! I hope so! I could use some positivity...  Please enlighten us a bit about that in your next blog!! I would love to hear more about it.....

and I guess asa forgot how horribly gg, mj, and reza made fun of and criticized her in season 1. I don't know how she could forget-it was so hard to watch.

 @TillmonA So agree with you. With "friends" like these people, Lilly should stay as far away as possible. And enough of this Persian Priestess.

The bottles look cheap and the thought of it being diamond water is a joke. If those are true investors, I have something I would like to sell them.

 In all fairness, sage has been used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years to get rid of evil spirits, or "cleanse" a property.  I've seen perfectly sane real estate agents do it in a home where there was divorce, or some other bad energy.  I'm familiar with the Native American uses.

GirlFromKY

 @fell LMAO!!!  Hilarious and SOo true.  And also, Asa is trying to spin this blog as if Lilly blamed THEM for HER actions???  That's just a bunch of crap!  Lilly was upset when none of the others batted an eye after MJ tried to tell her no one at the table was her friend.  Lilly was right.  They were all "Crickets."  I'd have been hurt too having thought I'd begun to make friendships.  Man, this is one ruthless bunch of wanna-be Nouveau Riches!  I don't know how much longer I can handle all of the lies and fake BS they come up with.

 @bjunebug28

 Since you mentioned how thye all called her an drug addict etc, there was someone at the gathering stating that he noticed MJ wasn't drinking.  They all drink and go to the extreme, but they made it out ot be only MJ being out of control.

piperbeau

 @bjunebug28  GG was wrong for having Lilly's back!!! Lilly was one hundred percent wrong at that dinner!! She said to MJ you have no friends!! Thats when MJ pointed out these are my friends first!! So I think they are even!!

 @p-note

 my dear I hate to burst your bubble but I'm not sure how drinking some kind of water will bring positivity.... who ordained her to be a priestess anyway?!!..... It's a title she gave herself because she thought it was cool. Where does she draw that kind of "power" from to somehow channel positive energy into water?!?? It just all sounds to me like something I watch in a Disney movie not in actual life

 lily is the only one that ever shows any class. at least she doesn't have to roll on the  lady packed in a ground and have someone spray champagne on her like some cheap porno. and mike just because you couldn't hold your head up while in mexico  doesn't mean lily has to demean herself. as far as lily's party being more fun with mj there. is a fat lady packed in an outfit that is too small falling down stupid drunk taking jabs at everyone fun? not for me!!!

 @SaraJan  Little do you know and believe SaraJan. The power of water is what keeps us alive. The fact that she received support and investors only confirms the fact that her positive intentions are working. Haters gonna hate. :)
