Is it sad that this season has turned out to be so dramatic that I look forward to Diamond Water scenes? This week proved to be as big of a doozy as the first two episodes… the focus quickly turned from MJ and Lilly to MJ and GG. The common denominator in all of this? MJ.
After poor Lilly left the party looking like she got fired from her friends (or as MJ calls them, “her friends”) the group went out to a club where MJ screwed up BIG TIME. All was okay in Shahland until GG thought Sean was checking out some other girl’s butt. OK... maybe he was, but the girl was in a cage. Things in a cage are meant to be looked at, kind of like birds. Now, if they were meant to be touched, they’d be next to a pole. Either way, GG was pissed, but that doesn’t even describe how pissed she got after MJ outed GG for making out with Shayan at Lilly’s party. WHO DOES THAT??? What happened to the Persian Sisterhood of the Traveling Chador? MJ broke the Shah Code. MJ, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Let’s just say Lilly dodged a bullet that night by being unfriended and unliked at dinner.
While GG was busy being pissed at MJ for blabbing, Lilly had bigger fish to fry: gaining weight. She went out to lunch with her “real friend,” her hair stylist. She ordered one of everything on the menu, except for the wood-burning oven itself. How that girl stays thin, I have no idea because she ordered for a village. She ordered: Rock Shrimp, Mac and Cheese, Thai Chicken Cups, Pizza — extra thin and crispy -- and that was just to start! Her main course? Kobe beef meatballs. Her friend just ordered a salad with no cheese. No cheese probably because Lilly ordered all the cheese off the menu. All I have to say to that is I hope Lilly can reach her goal weight of 105 because it seems a lot more attainable than reconciling with the Shahs.
Next, before I get to MJ and Lilly, can I just say THANK GOD for Asa in her amazing robe, Stevie Wonder glasses, and chants to save the day. We need her to sage this whole episode. She said it best when she said:
