This week’s episode of the Shahs must be what it felt like when the Persian Empire broke up and divided. Just like our Shahs, those poor little countries (or shall I say modern territories to be historically correct) must have been like, what’s up with this? I thought we were an empire? We told the truth and we still got conquered?! Well, sometimes the truth will set you free in Reza’s case with Sasha, and if you’re GG, you lose. And if you’re Mike, you’re the country that feels slighted and wants to conquer all.
But miracles can happen in a Persian Empire. Look at GG and Asa. Who would have thought that GG and Asa would be friends after hoop-earring gate at the pool party last season? In hopes to get her “impulses” under control, Asa took GG to Tai Chi. What someone should have told Asa is that when one impulse is suppressed, another pops up. Um…GG is one horny mother f-cker! Girlfriend has some serious sex on her mind.
Million-dollar question of the day from GG, “This is all about sex, isn’t it?”
Only if you’re a catholic schoolgirl not wanting to get pregnant it is.
Asa tells us that Tai Chi opens up your chakras…
And GG’s chakras told her to hump Asa.
Poor GG. Little did she know that her pent up sexual energy wouldn’t get satisfied anytime soon. Hopefully, with all of this Tai Chi she can control her urge “to cut MJ’s fat tits off and bitch slap her with them.” Her words, not mine.
ALL of the cast need to get over using the name "Persia." Persia hasn't really been Persia since 1935 - long before their parents were probably born. They are historically and always will be, Iranian. The country was ruled under a real Shah and them a religious fruitcake. Does using the Persian references mean they're ashamed of it, or that they don't accept where their ancestors really came from? The women on the show are ridiculous. The men on the show are that, times 3. All of them are Iranian. Own it and STOP using the Persian references. It's almost like someone saying they came from Camelot.
I hope and pray Mike finds his way to a successful career WITHOUT the so-called help from Reza. I feel that, with someone like Reza in the background doing more harm than good, I could do bad all by myself. I mean, where was the help he indicated he would provide when they decided to form their partnership? Reza is so busy criticizing Mike on not being able to push forward, although the partnership thing was for Reza to "mentor" Mike in there somewhere. But, of course, Reza has selective memory and, at best, knows nothing better to do than to criticize him, or anyone for that matter who he feels is not on his superior (and shallow) level -- even a friend! If Mike and Reza ever were to resolve their relationship, I'd be very leery if I were Mike, 'cause Reza comes across as being very shady and untrustworthy. I would never forget the way he treated the situation, 'cause Reza's a cold piece of work, that's for sure.
I have really liked you with your wit and charm, etc. .....until this season. THis is just a reality show and we are only allowed to see bits and pieces. I understand that. Basically. I think you expected Mike to tell you what you did was OK for obliterating someone you didn't know from the very get-go because you had it very very hard being Persian and gay when you where in Iran. Mike says, " I love you but what you did was wrong". This reminds me of the type of thinking that a person was very abused as a child so now that they are an adult, they use that as an excuse for killing or abusing someone else. You are right. Mike is in trouble financially. but he will get a job ( and maybe a reality check on what he can afford). You. my friend, are in deeper trouble because your moral compus is totally out of whack! You dissed MJ terribly and now she's your best friend because she backed you for something you KNOW IN YOUR HEART you did wrong.Guess what? People can check someone on something they think someone did wrong and still love them . Parents do it all the time! Do you think all the love and times you have shared should so easily be given away because someone(including yourself) thought you did wrong and told you so? If I were to have each member in your group look at the 2 segments with Sasha where you were....well basically as ASS, would they really say that's was OK? Some of them are pleading ignorance because they weren't there or are they're afraid you would treat them like Mike? Good for you, you did apologize to Sasha ! Frankly, the apology felt more like an excuse for why you did it! You did it, it was wrong, OWN IT and don't take it out on someon else in addition!
I never write on the things, but I feel such a need to write that it's obvious that MJ is jealous of Lily and Reza was jealous of Sasha. Reza was wrong for what he did and Mike was simply standing up for what was right. MJ is turning out to be just like her mother.
mixing business with friends is usually a mistake .....now what about the bus wraps that cost 35K .....how will Jessica react when she sees the ring segment is it a token of love or ego .....I would be upset if I knew my intended was gambling for money to put a ring on it .....Mike there are no get rich schemes that work
I will agree with you on calling Mike out, but why didn't you call Reza out for actually blaming other people for his turn coat behavior on MJ. Mike, GG nor Lily had anything to do with Reza's bashing of MJ last year. In fact it was Reza who tried to convince Mike that MJ was on drugs. Reza is full of BS and take no accountability for his actions. And seriously, why is he upset with Mike....because Mike didn't back him or take his side when he was wrong. All these people are fronting...and are not as well off as they pretend to be.
Nadine, you're right, Mike forgot that he wanted to get away from commercial and he also left Las Vegas for the same reason....where business is flowing he did fine, but young sales people forget, you need to put in the time. When you do that, you outlast the ups and downs of the economy. You become the go to guy in your community, but you have to network first! You need the accountant of your hairdresser's next door neighbor...that takes TIME!
...Ms. Rajabi...where did YOU come from?!!...what a fresh breath of air!...I used to ONLY read the recaps, but the writers have become so banal on the BRAVO HW show recaps, I stopped reading them MONTHS ago and started reading only the blogs from the actors/reality TV stars? ...(imagine that!)...I 'happened' upon yours by accident and glad I did...I hope BRAVO doesn't run you off, like they apparently have some of the other 'recappers' who were so funny and "spot-on"...I hope just cause you are Persian, that they don't limit you to only comment on Persian shows, because the other HW show recaps could surely use your help...LOVE your humor and will be watching for more!
I really felt sorry for Mike when he was sitting at the table playing poker with his friends. He thinks they money they make, all the homes, and girls are what will make him happy, but I seriously doubt that Jessica would agree with him. To me, he looked so uncomfortable with these people. He needs to go back to his real friends...Reza, MJ, Asa and GG.
I'm a bit shocked by Mike's behavior I expected better! The love of the almighty dollar has them all screwed up! It's horrible because Reza only paired with him to annoy MJ!
Here is the thing. Buying a advertisement shrink wrap that is on a bus for $35,000 is not generating business. Mike should walk the neighnorhoods send out mailings. He thought that people would just come through the doors. Neither he or Reza appeared to have a converstaion together about how they were going to generate business. Now what always happens with this group friend turns on friend over the all mighty Dollar. Reza has down sized his living accomodations. He says it was because he wanted to get a place that Adam could afford to pay rent. I say BS. He wanted to spend less on Rent so that he could buy a Porshe, ugly suits and hideous shoes. Mike can purcahse a $20,000 engagement ring and then upgrade as soon as he is able.By the time he marries maybe he will have $100,000 engagement ring.
I hope Mike reads your blog, because he seriously needs a reality check. You hit the nail on the head when it came to assessing Mike's ego.
so true .....real estate is all about referrals and networking ,,,,,,joining community organizations...you have to get your name out there
@Simply_Iris Reza is not a friend, he dumped on him talks smack about how lazy he is at work. One thing you don't do to a man you never talk about his financials or his ability to work and make money...it's a no no. Reza is selfish, self consumed, greedy, ego centered BS-er. I am over him.
@janshell Agree with you about why Reza paired with Mike....but Mike didn't deserve this from his friend...He didn't talk smack about him until the insults about his making money from MJ and Reza in front of his girlfriend got out of hand. They are both jealous of Mike...he's moving on in his life with a beautiful THIN (that's for you MJ) woman and you are pissed. My money is on Mike he will succeed and show you both up.
