MJ Owes GG a Genuine Apology

Lilly thinks MJ definitely broke the Girl Code.

I threw myself a birthday bash for my 30th this year, so I think Coconut deserves a party too. She’s turning 4 this year (or 28 years old in human years), which means it's the last year that I’ll be older than her.  While I’m still the older mommy, I’m going to do a very motherly thing and have a party in her honor.
I wasn’t sure how the party would turn out since she doesn’t like to be outside very much, but I think she had a really good time. I invited all her doggy friends, and instead of a cake, I got her what she loves the most, a rotisserie chicken!
Everyone that was invited has a dog (since it’s a dog party!) with the exception of Asa. Even though Asa doesn’t have a dog, I really miss hanging out with her, and her positive energy in general, so I wanted her to be there.
Overall, I think Coconut had fun, but that party was SO much more work than I anticipated. I think it will be her last big birthday party.

Watching Mike and Jessica go through everything they are doing to be together is so heartwarming. I truly believe that love is blind, and I think it’s so romantic that Jessica is converting for Mike and learning Persian. He better appreciate her efforts and put a ring on that SOON!
The episode ends with a huge blowout between MJ and GG. I don’t think what MJ did was right by telling GG’s boyfriend what she did (MJ wasn’t even at my birthday PS, so her saying GG was making out with someone is hearsay anyway!), and she 100% owes GG a genuine apology for betraying their friendship and girl code, but I do think that GG should try and talk about things when she is not drinking.
Tempers can easily flare when you’re dealing with an issue with a friend, and you can say things you regret, so definitely be 100% sober when you deal with those matters.
Until next week!

MJ: "I Finally Opened My Heart to Love"

MJ dishes on her new man.

Last year in Turkey, I was blind-sided in the best way; I had a revelation, a new found desire to become a mother someday. I am very traditional when it comes to marriage and children in one household and under one roof. That is my dream and deepest hope. I have accomplished success in my career and happiness in every other area in my life. I finally opened my heart to love. I became vulnerable to find love. I met Charlie via Facebook/Tinder. I didn't "swipe right" on him, but he screen grabbed my profile, and messaged me on Facebook one night while I was at my place with Reza and Adam. They drilled Charlie with a series of questions about "what would make you a good candidate for MJ." Suffice it to say, he passed the test, took me to a beautiful, romantic restaurant on our first date where the conversation flowed, and so did the chemistry.

I'm so glad to have met Asifa last year, and even happier she has joined our group. My first impression of Asifa was that she was very polite, prim, pretty, and cordial. As time went on, I began to discover that there are many layers to Asifa. We are a complicated group of people and I look forward to getting to know her on a deeper level, the way I know the rest of my friends.

At Asa's house for the fire jumping ceremony, we all noticed Mike engrossed by Jessica eating a piece of shrimp, and I called him out. To me it was sexy to see a couple turned on by one another. But when I said what everyone else was thinking, Mike and Jessica looked shocked at what I had said, which was surprising to me. I think that once you are in a serious relationship, cheeky conversation topics are not at all off limits, and for us, the best thing about our friendship is sharing good spirited laughs with each other.

Woah, Nelly! Bobby was in the room for less than five minutes when Mike immediately picked a fight with him? As I watched this unfold, I saw how high Mike's nerves were running... It was very awkward. I attribute it to all the fresh, new, successful, alpha-male energy in the room. The tension in the room was undeniable, and unfortunately it got the best of him. Mike and Bobby have some history, and within seconds of Bobby getting there it all came to a head. This is a bad start for both of them, and it spilled over into a divide between us all.

Here's to a fruitful 2015!
