Asa dishes on the lunch with Lilly and why she apologized.

on Dec 1, 20130

Hi Lovers! 

I'm glad Mike is trying to bring in business, but I personally don’t think that spending $35K on putting his picture on a bus is the best move when he's not making any real estate money. It's good that his Mom keeps it real with him. I hope it works out for him.

At the gallery: The last thing I want to do is to explain my project for somebody's “approval.” But being a conceptual artist the story behind a work is equally critical as the aesthetics of the project. David is really smart and also multicultural, so he totally got it. Our generation lives in an entirely new world in which cultural borders are continuously melting. That's the stuff I'm interested in. That emotional place where you are half this and half that or you are one thing but grew up somewhere else.

So you question Lilly's "realness" yet when I watch the show I notice your "accent" comes and goes contingent upon the circumstance.  Someday you may grow up and realize you are just a tad ridiculous and self-absorbed.  You wear your 'refugee" status like an Easter Hat (putting it on for attention and show) Give it a rest girl, as a "priestess you should be doing things that help others, not using it for more self promotion.  Sad and weird.

Bravo needs to dump Asa as she is boring to watch and her blogs have no personality!  Bravo can you give Lily her own show but keep Mike!  I'm sure you can find a great protagonist to fit M.J.'s part. WE WANT MORE LILY!  She is like the NENE of ATL.  The Bethanny of New York!

i dont feel their entire crew but lilly and gg and even perhaps mike know how friends should act....asa, mj, reza are self asborbed, shallow individuals....the tide is getting ready to be divided.

"These were my friends first!"  I think I heard that on the elementary school playground.    I didn't know we still counted things like that in adulthood...?  

 

Speaking of freidns: One of them called MJ out on being an alcoholic and drug addict during a reunion special.  And someone (Asa) was backing them up.  

 

Who needs to get real?  People in glass houses...

GG invited Lily to the dinner she could have at least stood up for Lily and walked her out to make sure she was ok......Lily brought up the RSVP so she was prepared for a battle with MJ and probably expected the group to support her.......you can't compete with Truffle infused pizza

Dear Fake priestess what MJ said is that these are my friends they are not your friends.  No one here is your friend.  None of you fake broke ass losers said anything.  Your silence means you agreed with MJ.  Lily may be rich, beautiful and intellengent everything you are not but that is no reason to hate her.  Not having you losers as friends is a good thing for Lily!  She is worthy of her own show any way.  Who needs the Persian Losers.

Lilly stood up for herself when M.J. and Reza made cruel remarks.   YOU were dogged out by them and continue to kiss their butts after they treated u like some dirt on a shoe.  U never stood up for yourself and you are the fake one not Lily but you.

Well, keeping it on the real, Asa, as a "priestess" you are little to no different from opportunistic televangelists, who hustle so-called "blessed" or "anointed" pieces of cloth, crosses, or statuary, for a 'modest donation' and claim that the naïve, usually poor and possibly desperate person's purchase of whatever item they buy will impart blessings and holy favor upon them. The difference is you assign a price to the item that will impart spiritual favor and named it "Diamond Water". So, pardon me if I refuse to trust your advice about anything to anyone, because you are nothing more than a self-righteous huckster, who hustles other people to spend their money, so you may develop a product, in this case, Diamond Water, to deliver supernatural spiritual benefits that it will not deliver. Though I don't care for her, follow the advice you offered Lilly, because Lilly knows who she is, behaves as she is, and she makes no apologies for who she is and what she does. She was right to call you and others out for calling yourselves her friends, though failing to behave as friends would behave. You, with your fake Diamond Water and fake friendship claims, need to "get more real".

Seriously... what is your problem? YOU need to get real. You apologized to her and then turned around and act like you have no idea why she should be upset? That's fake and I'm over it. Lilly, like everyone else in the world is flawed but at least she owns it. Please do us a favor and own yours. Telling her she needs to have tough skin is just an excuse for you and your crappy "friends" to be rude to each other and those around you. GET REAL.

Then how are you friends with the rest of those Persians? Y'all have a very weird set of hypocritical rules. I still maintain that the reason your nose is so brown towards Reza, MJ, and GG is because your terrified they will bully your looks and personality like they did in Season 1. They said some really humiliating things about you so I get your fear, but I think you should try and move past it and be the positive person you continually profess as being.

I like Lily, she's about the only person next to Khandi and Lisa V who actually works for living and makes a profit from it in La la land, aka reality TV. The rest rely on lazy rich people to up and want yet another house to their collection of wealth.

Asa, I don't think Lily is the one that needs to get real.  She very freely admits, fake breasts, a re-constructed nose, 260g of hair on her head and false lashes.  She calls herself a "Barbie" for pete's sake!  This is not someone who takes herself all that seriously.  Sure, she's a uptight but that doesn't mean she's not real.  She's just real uptight.    This is a girl with some insecurities and you, Reza and MJ have turned that into a reason to be deliberately dismissive and mean.  Shame on you.  You are too old for that!

Asa, I really believe that your are representing your heritage/history in a way that honors the truth of your individual experience, but, doesn't restrict you from growth. It's not always those who are screaming at the top of their lungs that have the most to say. The truly profound among us use the art of action not the war of words. As a female writer I understand the power of creativity. In the world of "Reality" where most are offering little more than their own obsession with themselves, it's inspiring to see someone (with talent) who is willing to back up their beliefs with real work. To share your vision of enlightenment with others is to share yourself without any restriction. I stand with you in the struggle to raise the standards of Pop-Culture, and support your Modern Expressionist Art Installation.

Ok, I still can't wrap my head around why Lilly thought it was eveyone else's resposibility to stop her and MJ from saying horrible things to each other.  I DO think there was a point where someone should have stepped in and said, we are Lily's friends, too. 

M.J. just can't help being innapropriate; Sean and GG, Lily, now the new Sasha.  She always has something to say that shouldn't be said.

And, Asa, I have to agree with many of the other viewers here, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

Please...Get real...Your just nasty, rude, ugly (inside/out), a folllower, and shady!...We, the viewers, are not stupid, we see right through your fake "smile"...Lilly is much better off not having you as a friend, your just like Reza DEVIOUS!!!!!!!!!....Just got away.....

I don't get Lilly at all ....does she want to be friends with the Shas or not or is her whole purpose to be on the show is to promote herselfas a brand

Asa,  when you showed your parents the Diamond water factory, why didn't you show them where the diamond  was?  It is called Diamond water after all and that was the whole idea behind the water, having the energy of the diamond.  And on your website, the diamond that the water is supposedly passing through is barely mentioned.  I am beginning to think you sold the diamond to pay for the operation.  If so, you need to be honest with everyone or the negative energy of that deception will doom it.

Pathetic. You claim to be all ethical and moral, and treat Lilly that way??? Wonder how you'll feel when Karma comes knocking on your door....

Asa if you want to sell that water you better learn how to get alone with everybody and not stabbing people in the back  these people Mike and Lilly have lots of followers  you and Reza or not the only one on the show by the looks of the ratings things don't look to good.  Never thought you would be reza puppet like MJ even GG has fans

...Speaking about getting real....you might want to get some of that for yourself!   I thought you were kind of interesting the first season.   But looks like someone got drunk on their own kool-aid!    Your just silly and delusional now.  

 

I noticed that you and MJ have something in common.....you're both NEVER wrong about anything.  Even your 'apology' to Lilly was basically the same 'sorry not sorry' routine.   

 

BTW for the past couple seasons YOU have been the condescending one.  Lilly can't be on her high horse cause you've been riding it all over town.   Time to get real with yourself and take it down a few notches so I can continue to enjoy the show..  thanks.

"To be honest, it's difficult to be friends with someone who is always condescending and thinks they are better than everybody else."

 

How is Lilly condescending?  She's not condescending.  That's just something that you're making up in your mind to justify not standing up for her.  So much for your spiritual nature.

Common decency would have been to say that things were getting out of control at that table and What was being said was hurtful and rude. Completely unnecessary. Can not imagine how Lilli felt In that moment. Awful,just awful. Mercedes is a bitter woman, who is taking more and more after her mother. Honesty can be cruel, realize this. If you have a problem with Lilly take her aside Off Camera and level with her, much kinder.

Asa you are wrong about the way you handled Lily!  M.J. is a total miserable woman who has internal issues that only therapy can provide.  M.J. has shown nothing but insecurity and emotional weakness since Lily came on the show.   M.J. is jealous of Lily.   YOU CHOSE TO STAY SILENT WHEN LILY YOUR FRIEND NEEDED YOU!   ALSO SINCE DAY 1 M.J. HAS TREATED LILY LIKE CRAP AND YOU EXPECT LILY TO JUMP THROUGH HOOPS AND ADD A CHAIR TO HER (LILY'S PARTY)?  ARE u drinking too much Diamond Water? 

 

Bravo please please give Lily her own show!!!  SHE MAKES FOR GREAT REALITY T.V.

Lilly has been nothing but nice to all of you.  Mj has been mean to her from day one and we all know why.  Mj is so jealous of Lilly she can't see straight.  When Mj said that none of you were Lilly's friend you all should have said something.  All of you blame your bad behavior on everyone else.  Take credit for your mistakes. Now all of a sudden you all talk about how Lilly thinks she is better than you. Funny the show is not broadcasting that.  All of you are broken people and don't know anything about loyalty of compassion.

Let's get it straight Lover, you're splitting hairs, 'These are my friends first, so you and Coconut can circle your way back to Texas'.  Hello, now do you remember.  Same thing.  MJ was saying that the people at the table were not her friends but MJ's friend. 

 

Mike's bus wrap, who are you to weigh in to say it will be unsuccessful.  You with a diamond and Persian Priestess blessing wearing Sun Glasses? 

 

I don't see where Lilly behaves in a way that makes you or the others feel less than her. A good friend celebrates their friends success especially when Lilly shares it with her friends.  I bet you didn't buy lunch that day with Lilly.

 

Asa, you are no friend.  You are selfish and everything comes back to how wonderful you are.

 

Frankly, I don't see it.  You have issues to overcome and deserve MJ and Reza.

So, you liked Lilly this year and now you turn on her? The truth is you were all super rude at her birthday but had no qualms about eating and being entertained at her expense. Second, Lilly might be condescending toward MJ at this point but this is after a boatload of petty, catty, cruel and malicious remarks and treatment.  It would in fact be very difficult to NOT feel superior to someone so unmannerly.   MJ was trying to run her off the table, which she succeeded in doing. Lilly has been accommodating enough - for you guys to give her a hard time about not allowing MJ into the party was incredibly weak given MJ's downright abusive treatment of her.  And no, I've never been Team Lilly. I find her unrelatable, but I know shoddy crappy tretament when I see it. And Reza is totally two-faced. Last year he threw his bff under the bus in a very malignant fashion and this year he is kissing her a$$ at someone else's expense.  Lilly should not have opened up the can of worms at this table, but no one is crueler than MJ (or Reza) and this was after a ton of cr*p.

 @PlasticPeggy   Ah yes, nice little dig at her friend Mike.  Since Asa's not a realtor, she's probably not the best authority on how to market for that business.  Unless of course she's discussed it with her friends Reza & MJ. 

Since she's never done an art show, Asa probably shouldn't quit the music biz temporarily (especially when she's not all that popular to begin with) to do an exhibition.  On second thought I guess she should.  If she wasn't on this show, no one would give an unknown, without a portfolio or without money, a shot.

 I actually think that quote fits Asa more than Lily.  Asa is Reza's follower, whomever he picks as the next outcast she follows....she's just unaware her number will be up probably next season if it's still on.

 @Blink You know, you're right on both points.  I like Asa.  I think she's basically a good person, wants to be a good person.  She's a good artist, too.  But, you're right that Asa's just following Reza, not supporting a true friend, like Lilly.
