It's been really difficult for me to blog for the past two weeks. This summer was such a transformational time in my life, and although it's been months since we were in Turkey, the issues I was dealing with were decades old and the wounds ran deep. Watching the episodes for me put me back into that time and place, and these past two weeks have been a serious time for reflection. I'm not sure how everyone in the circle feels about our journey to Turkey, but I will be eternally grateful for the trip, because I closed a very old and long chapter of my life. Turkey gave me the closure that I needed, as well as a deeper appreciation for what I have. I came home and reevaluated all of my relationships; my relationship with Adam, with my family, with my friends, and with my business associates. Some relationships grew stronger and others were terminated. I felt completely empowered, and this leads me into the conversation of turning forty and, as you've now seen, Adam and I getting engaged.
Reza, I am going to miss watching you guys with the season ending. Hopefully, you and Mike will be good friends again. It is good to see you and MJ in a good place. You two definitely have a connection that few people are lucky to have.
always acts like a child. very immature and insecure. hates everything unless it is about himself. stop crying...... you need therapy. move on with your life. all of us in life have problems...that is part of growing.
Reza, I find you to be a hypocritical and unlikeable person. Your belief that you are superior to more recent gay immigrants from Iran is delusional. Your family prospered under the corrupt and brutal Shah's regime and your family had the money to get out before your sexuality caused you the slightest risk. Gay men who actually grew up in Iran, and not Hollywood, were at risk and shouldn't be denigrated because they didn't have the advantages of living under the Shah like you did. Furthermore, denigrating more outwardly gay men and telling them how to act is no different than heterosexual men telling you not to be who you are. You have a lot of growing to do as a human being before you get to the level of a good person.
Reza- No matter how you and your BFF MJ spin it, to call someone an F.O.B. is VERY offensive. For MJ to sit there and say, " It's a tease", is just disgusting. You two really deserve each other.
Reza, I love watching you on the show. You and MJ are most real and have no problem being vulnerable to your feelings. Love Adam as well. Congratulations and wish you all the best !
Liking you again this season. You finally cam down earth and know who your REAL friends are. Congrads on your engagement.
Reza, Adam seems to be the sweetest person in the world. He actually warms my heart. I remember how kind and patient he was with you last year. He hung in there. I wish the best for both of you. Take care of his heart. He's a very good human being.
Congrats to Reza! I hope everything works out for you. Glad you and Lilly are not close anymore…that person is truly annoying.
Reza, so you have turned 40. Tell me, when are you (and the others) are going to start acting your age. As for MJ, she is getting close to 50 now, will she ever truly grow up? I know,I know she and everyone else goes on and on and on about her relationship with her mother. I think she is old enough now to just get over it. So hoping that turning 40 will make you drop your "mean girl" ways.
Congratulations! I enjoy watching you, you have such a great sense of humor. It really cracks me up when you get disheveled and your hair is all over the map. You seem real and genuine. I for one am a big fan xxx
Congratulations. That being said, all you guys really treated Lilly badly, but you should really be ashamed Reza. Though I've seen you really have no shame.
I've watched this program ever since the beginning. You all love each other, and it shows. I am particularly sensitive to MJ's feelings. Reza and others, please go overboard in making her feel loved and appreciated. Her mother has no clue. MJ has no one other than her crew for family. Best of luck to Asa and her diamond water business. May she be blessed. She brought the whole crew together this season. The entire crew has reversed itself this season from the negative space last season. I am so pleased to see GG maturing. Please stay away from shallow people and influences. Please be more forgiving towards your sister, and everyone. We all need each other to survive and grow.
My absolute favorite favorite season!!!
Congratulations not only on the engagement but in your ability to commit which hasn't always been an easy thing for you! Bravo!
Congrats Reza and Adam, but I have to say that was the least romantic proposal I have ever seen. Giving him a box, in a plastic bag. Couldn't you have come up with a better delivery? But he said yes, and I am happy for both of you.
That Cake was so awesome! I wish I could start a business selling only rainbow layer cakes. I even live in the SF bay area but have no idea if the demand is that great.
Mazal Tov!!!! I have really enjoyed watching you this season. You're still a character, but I can see that counseling has been very positive as I notice it in your behavior and thought process on t.v.
First - congrats to you and Adam - wish you a life time of happiness... Moving on, you said your trip gave you a deeper appreciation for what you have. Well, that should include Lilly, They way all of you turned your back on her was disgusting. Lilly never did anything to any of you to deserve the treatment she got. She was a real friend to you Reza and you let "that" mj treat her so badly... shame on you. MJ should wish that she could be half the woman (no pun intended) that Lilly is. Looks like MJ is living in her own Karma and is getting just what she deserves out of life. She has not right to even think about having a child until she grows up and learns to treat others with respect. Her own mother has no respect for her and it's understandable.
I hope you really are a changed man because this entire season, you were the most hateful and terrible person to everyone. I honestly cringed everytime I saw you on tv and had to fast forward. Hopefully this is real.
I absolutely ADORE you and Adam together. You are my favorite Persian in the world and Adam is the perfect one for you. I cried at your engagement, so touching!! Looking forward to the wedding Reza, I hope the fans can see it!! All the best!
Every time I hear you say "Lochnessa" I crack up. Even when I say it my head I giggle. Perfect.
Congratulations Reza and Adam. Rez I am proud of you! I can tell you that watching the Turkey trip was wonderful. I felt Mike's confusion and pain and understood why he didn't want to go into the mosque. I am neither Jewish nor Muslim but could understand his point of view. As for the trip to the border, I can only imagine how you, Asa and her mother must have felt. The inability to go to your birthplace is certainly difficult. I can see why you were all so overwhelmed. Congratulations on how far you have come this year. I am so happy for you and Adam.
Congratulations Reza! welcome to the wonderful up & down that is marriage. Remember its about the marriage and not the wedding. Much love, light and happiness.
Can you clear something up? MJ going on and on last night about how old she is. Somewhere between 38 and 40. Correct me if I am wrong but last season when you went through her bag and showed her license, I could have sworn the year was 1972 which would put her at 42 this year. Anyone else remember this?
Shas ...love the show....can't wait til next season......weddings....babies???? MIKE put a ring on it
@Igirl@84 you must have a boring life....they act like 5 yr olds...only 5 yrs old do not curse and are not so hatefull.
@fell MJ is close to 40. not 50.
@cakevette I would kinda of avoid the Rainbows...
@bestofboston You're so right. MJ (although we all know the reason - her mother) and Reza are Mean Girls. They want everything their way. They're never wrong (in their minds). He was wrong to dis Lilly like that, and so was Asa. I'm sad that they showed Lilly second guessing herself, while she wasn't the one who was wrong.
@bestofboston While I'm not sure I would state it quite as meanly as you did, yes MJ has issues and it includes her relationship with her mother. But what I REALLY agree with you is that the whole group, especially Reza, owes Lilly and apology. Your group was so mean to her and I could not believe the audacity of you and separately Asa to lay the blame on Lilly.
If GG is Lochnessa which she owns when she drinks, what is MJ? Fatlessa? Because she is vile and disgusting.
@NYCrealrealhousewife I also thought she was well past 39 years old. I never understood why a woman's age was such a big deal unless of course one's embarrassed to be acting like a college coed at 42!
Mike need sto find his balls. Go for your business and understand that Jessica is a real woman much better than MJ, GG and the rest. She desrves the best. Reza i snot your friend nor will he ever be. I wnat to see you excel him in business and make him see it. It will kill him,
I think th egroups behavior towrad Lily is foul. Especially what the disingenious water queen Asa had to say. However Karma will handle her. Lily leave this toxic show and get your own spinoff. You are more interesting to wtach.
Exactly. Why would a good Muslim woman whant you to know that she has a sex tape? Not just one sex tape but several? MJ is disgusting. Do you really want a husband?
@msmith76 Unless she lied, she said on the show that she is 38.
@ellen2012 @cinchy@bestofbostonI agree. I think we all know MJ would never apologize, where she really should. OTOH, I'm really disappointed in the High Priestess, with all her talk about spirituality, that she would dump on Lilly like that. Lilly just didn't deserve that. I was even more disappointed when they showed Lilly, all alone in her apartment, saying that she was partly responsible. Huh, she did nothing wrong!!!
