Ep 4: Why is it so hard for MJ to apologize and so easy for GG to pitch a tent?!

on Nov 27, 20130

Can we just talk about GG pitching a tent for a minute? The girl can’t keep her cool long enough to keep her hoops on in a fight, but she can pitch a tent? I’m impressed. I like this side of GG. 

Long story short, after everyone got settled (finally), and MJ realized she couldn’t wear high heels at a campground, they decided to suit up and go white water rafting. While rafting, MJ broke a nail, but took the opportunity to closely inspect her nails over a smoke. 

There has to be some law about not smoking while WHITE WATER RAFTING! I digress…

GG confronted MJ very maturely on the raft and gave MJ an opportunity to apologize and what did MJ do? Tell GG she was genuinely not sorry before hitting the white water rapids. Yikes! 

Reza on the other hand, had bigger problems on his hand… no, not the rapids, and not MJ and GG. Poor thing looked like Mario from Super Mario Bros. 

Thankfully, everyone made it out alive from white water rafting and after a heart-to-heart between MJ and Reza, they all had s’mores by the campfire. 

Before we get to MJ and GG part deux, can someone tell this poor Persian she’s on camera when eating a marshmallow?

After everyone had fun with their respective marshmallows, GG and MJ got into it (how many times have I written this sentence this past two seasons?). After a lot of back and fourth, GG asked the million-dollar question to MJ, “why is my relationship your business?” GG’s right. MJ as a friend can absolutely have an opinion, but the fact that she keeps meddling and is so stubborn to not apologize is beyond me. 

It got to the point where GG’s dad even got involved, but MJ is so damn stubborn, she apologized for not being sorry. Or as MJ calls it, “Sorry. Not sorry.” It’s funny… as I watch MJ I think to myself—she might apologize, she might just do it… and when it comes down to apologizing, she just won’t do it and CAN’T. It’s as if she’s allergic to it. She went as far as apologizing for inconveniencing GG, for causing trouble, for GG being upset, but she still doesn’t think she did anything wrong. 

No MJ, technically, you told the truth. Is there a girl code you broke and did you break your friend’s trust? Yes. If the reverse were to happen to MJ, she would have lost her sh--. 

All MJ has to do is apologize for opening her big mouth. How hard is that to do? Instead she’s going through all this trouble and crazymaking for what? As for GG… I’m proud of her. She kept her cool a lot more than last week (frankly, more than she has in two seasons), and she had some very valid points. MJ is just being stubborn and can’t admit she’s wrong. 

Lesson for the future? MJ needs to wear one of Asa’s facemasks to keep her big mouth shut. 

Until next week…

GG has changed so much this season.  If it were the old GG, MJ would likely be in a hospital.

Of course GG kept her cool she was sober and at one of her gigs that she planned. GG never loses it at one of her gigs.

"There has to be some law about not smoking while WHITE WATER RAFTING!"

 

She probably threw the butt in the river, too.  Bleh. 

 

"As for GG… I’m proud of her."

 

I am, too.  Apparently, therapy is working for her.

MJ is still on something is  my guess...she makes no sense whatsoever! Asa with that gold thing across her nose, also makes no sense! Hello, this is America! Her mother talks like a truckdriver and she's covering half her face? HUH???

I have to be honest; the best part of the show is when I see all the food. I really wish that somebody tell what type of food their having. I also wish they give recipes and name the food. I want to come through the TV and be a part of the show just to try the food.

 That is what makes American beautiful. We all come from different backgrounds and we are allowed to believe in any God we want or don't want. In American we have the ability to express ourselves anyway we want without prejudice. Shysharon where were you born?

Cannot believe the prejudice of most of the people regarding this situation. Once again, America let's you believe or not believe in any God, Buddha and Idol. That is why people die coming here. How dare  mock that which we don't understand. This is the reason why wars have gone on for years and years. Some just can't let go. I was lucky to be brought up in the USof A yet I'm ashamed about others who would point a finger from one religion to another. Don't we all worship God?

 @DeeDee5304   Although not Persian...it's my favorite food.  I noticed that Gormeh Sabzi (stew) is served a lot which is usually served w/Tadiq(sp?)  which is the bottom of the rice that is browned w/oils and spices.  So good!  If you have a Persian restaurant around you anywhere you should try it :)

 I think Asa goes out of way to be different......she has the luck of being on Bravo she uses it as a opportunity to showcase her eclectic lifestyle

 I did not say she isn't beautiful, nor did I mention religion, but I do agree we can express ourselves without prejudice, so what does where I was born have anything to do with anything? I just happen to think Asa is full of contradictions. Me, I was born here to immigrant parents. So I don't need to hear that I don't get it. I do get it.
