Last week on Shahs of Sunset, Golnesa ‘GG’ Gharachedadhi made nice with everyone and they all lived happily ever after.  Sort of.

This week’s episode opens with GG explaining that she’s been trying hard to keep it together and be zen-like since the crazy dramatics of the past few weeks.  She also talks about buying her parents a new car for their anniversary, which is coming up.  Persians love to give lavish gifts, she explains.

Reza Farahan comes over for some wine and to break the news to GG that he won’t be able to attend the party she’s throwing for her parents’ 40th anniversary party. He pretends to be heartbroken over it, but he’s secretly thrilled. “Thank the LOOOORD” Reza yells into the camera. GG isn’t too happy, but knows the date is important to Reza.  Reza explains that he feels like his window of opportunity to snag a good man is disappearing. He wants to get out there and find someone while he’s still got it goin’ on.

GG decides to show off her collection of knives. GG grew up with weapons for protection, so it’s very normal to her.  I don’t know anyone who names their weapons, but GG is unique. Reza thinks if we look up GG in the dictionary, we’ll find her on the page wielding a machete. “You don’t joke about GG and her knives”. This whole show should be peppered with Reza-isms. They’re my favorite part.

Meet Crispy.  GG’s taser gun.  150,000 volts of love.  Cripsy scares Reza on several levels – mostly because Golnesa admits she’s dying to try it out on someone.

Sammy Younai stops by Mohamed’s mansion (palace?!) to check up on things.  This mansion is crazy.  I know where I’m spending my Mega Millions dough.  Oh wait, that lady in Maryland that I’m not related to won it.  Sammy wants this job to be perfect so she can get in tight with the billionaires.  We feel you, Sammy.

GG meets her dad for lunch.  She admits to us that she’s been very blessed to have parents who’ve given her everything.  She knows she’s lived a pampered life.  When her dad asks how her day was, she gripes about the traffic on the way to the mall and chipping her freshly manicured fingers.  Her dad gives her grief – gently – about her out of control spending.   Daddy tells her that she needs to get a job and then pulls out the most recent credit card statement, which GG doesn’t want to see.  He tells her he many not continue to foot the bill – $6800 last month and $8500 this month alone.  The food arrives and they shift the conversation to finding GG a man to support her instead.   GG’s doesn’t like to hear about her sister Leila’s self-supporting ways, as she’s married and doesn’t have her credit card bills sent to her dad.  It’s a touchy subject with GG.

Mercedes “MJ” Javid talks about her upcoming birthday while she blings up her puppies and heads out for a walk with Reza. He asks MJ if she’d come to NYC with him soon for a long-overdue meetup with his estranged father and she agrees.

The conversation to turns to MJ’s weight.  Reza has apparently been trying to get her to lose weight for years now and he says he’d like to gift her with a colonic for her birthday.   I think i want GG buying my bday gifts.  New car or a colonic? Decisions, decisions.

GG’s sister plays hardball with the car dealer over the price of the Mercedes Benz they’ve picked out for their parents.  GG is frustrated that she doesn’t get any respect from her sister on the financial front – Leila thinks GG’s job is shopping.

Mohamed is home to see how his ‘house’ is progressing.  He isn’t happy despite the fact that Sammy is ahead of schedule.  He gives Sammy hell for a few minutes as they do a walk through.  Mohamed loves the pool and tile – for $2million he better adore it!  Sammy is going to celebrate Mohamed’s praise by getting wasted.

Khloe Kardashian is out to squash the rumors that she and hubby Lamar Odom are on the skids.  So, she did what any well-trained celebrity does when they want us know that something is for realz – head to Twitter to overshare.  Khloe showed her love for Lamar in a photo collage on her website.

Khloe tweeted “How cute is my hubby?!?!? Hi my loves! Just wanted to post a few pics that I’ve tweeted of me and my hubby recently. It’s been over two years and I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world every single day! There’s no greater feeling than being in love :)” and attached a photo gallery titled “Just A Few Pics Of Me And My Lammy!”

And then she proceeded to write his name in glitter and puffy paint all over her notebook.

Khloe also gave a new interview, explaining that she and Lamar are BFF’s – no matter what the press tries to say.  “I say it like I’m kidding, but we’re both obsessed with each other. I’m a very goofy person and although he’s shy, when he’s with me, he’s really playful. He’s my best friend.”

Usually, when celebrities try this hard to convince us they’re TOTALLY in love with their significant other, a breakup is on the horizon, but I’m not so sure in the case of Khloe and Lamar.  They seem the more likely of any of the Kardashians to make a relationship work.

As if a pending split with Lamar wasn’t enough, the newest issue of Reality Weekly magazine claims that Kim Kardashian and Khloe are barely speaking these days.  A family source shared with the mag that Khloe has had enough of Kim’s bossy ways and the move to Dallas has put an even bigger divide between the sisters.

“Basically, Khloe has been letting Kim have it on all fronts and Kim is refusing to take it.  They’re not speaking nearly as often as tehy used to, even when they’re in the same room.  They’ve had issues for years, Kim is bossy with everyone but she’s always been especially bad with Khloe. ”  The source continues saying that since she married Lamar, Khloe is standing up to Kim a lot more than she did in the past.

The source also said that Kim had mentioned a desire to adopt and Khloe is furious.  “She can’t believe that Kim would actually think she’s capable of having a child right now when she can’t even make the right decisions.  It’s making it hard on everyone else, but neither of them seem to care.  Kim and Khloe are better off having a long break from each other.”

It looks like Ryan Seacrest has another hit on his hands as the numbers for newcomer Shahs of Sunset continue to climb.  In its premiere week, SoS nabbed an impressive 1.1 million viewers, beating out Bethenny Ever After, which came in with 1.02 million! 

Reza Farahan (how much do you love him already!?) and company must be doing something right because last week–only its third episode–saw a jump to 1.5 million; a 37% increase in total viewers.  Ryan trained this new cast well.  And you know what that means? More trashtastic reality TV coming our way…

With four of the main cast members (Mike Shouhed, MJ, Reza, and Sammy Younai) all involved in real estate in one form or another, it’s not surprising that we’re getting a chance to see inside of some fabulous Beverly Hills homes. And let’s face it, since we didn’t win the Mega Millions jackpot, this is as close as we may get to them.

In a recent interview, Mercedes “MJ” Javid explains why she loves the sometimes over-the-top mansions (aka “Persian Palaces”). “It’s in our blood — Cyrus the Great and things like that. Plus, it’s practical, too. Dynasty [the TV show] is the quintessential Persian lifestyle. Every Persian parent dreams of having a house the size of that mansion so all of their kids and grandchildren can live under one roof.”

In other Shahs of Sunset news, Asa Rahmati, who has gifted us with a few peeks at her tunes “Tehrangeles” and “Diamond Water”, made a video for her newest song, “Gold”.  Asa enlisted Reza to help her out with this latest artistic project. Watch around the 1:15 mark as Reza pops up wearing nothing but his porn ‘stache and a gold chain from the waist up.

In tonight’s episode, Asa will get a chance to share her newest single with a big time producer.

Serve up some free drinks and watch a billion fifteen reality stars flock to the red carpet!

Gretchen Rossi, Teresa Giudice, Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Jon Gosselin, Aubrey O’Day, Courtney Robertson, Ben Flajnik, Renee Graziano, Ali Fedotowsky, DeAnna Pappas, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy, Anita Gohari, and Ashley Hebert attended the ‘Night of a Billion Reality Stars’, hosted by Svedka Vodka at the Supperclub in Hollywood.

Courtney and Ben made sure to tacky up the place with heavy PDA. No doubt it was an attempt to make sure we know they’re for real. Nothing says ‘we found love on a reality show’ like massive amounts of making out on a red carpet for the world to see.

In other interesting nauseating news from that night: ‘Reformed’ famewhorer Jon Gosselin gave several interviews, sharing how much he loves living in the middle of the woods and leading a simple life.

He told Access Hollywood: “It just wasn’t for me in the end. I’ve been working 9 to 5, I’m a network engineer at a local IT company right by [my] kids’ house. I have a house in the woods. I do no normal things.”

Normal things, like attending red carpet Hollywood events.  Simple, indeed.

Jon says that he and ex-wife, Kate Gosselin (who I would’ve expected to see at this event before Jon), are co-parenting the best way two fame-obsessed parents can.  “We’re doing our best to co-parent.  Sometimes we argue, obviously, so we have our differences in parenting and in life in general, but we only do what we can handle.”

And word to the ladies, this dad-of-the-year is single and ready to mingle: “I’m dating and just taking things slow. I’m a country boy from Pennsylvania.”

Oh drama! In today’s Real Housewives of Orange County news, Gretchen Rossi continues to suffer humiliation over the man she chooses to date!

While out last night at an event with beau/alleged future fiance Slade Smiley, a man who calls himself a bill collector walked up to the couple and started insulting Slade!

The reason? It was all over the huge amount of unpaid child support Slade owes to the mother of his son, Michelle Arroyo. Slade and Michelle’s son is 11-year-old Grayson Smiley, who has been battling brain cancer since age six.

Right after the duo stepped off the red carpet after posing for photos, the very angry bill collector walked up to them and yelled at Slade, “Pay your child support! Your son has cancer.”

Slade and Gretchen appeared taken aback as the duo tried to enter their vehicle, with Gretchen asking the man: “What is wrong with you?” In the video, the collector man repeatedly says Slade owes $160,000, though Michelle herself tells TMZ the number is around $130,000, which she has now agreed to have reduced to $95,000 in a recent court hearing.

The only good news in this is that Michelle confirms Slade is now paying her child support in the form of $775 per month.

Believe it or not, Bachelor couple Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are still going strong!

In fact, the engaged duo made their first red carpet appearance last night as a couple. And speaking to UsWeekly, the two insist their love is still as strong as ever.

While Ben, 29, has been dogged by cheating reports and photos in the last few weeks, he tells UsWeekly he and Courtney, 28, are finally settling into normal life. “It’s getting close,” said Ben. “Now that the show’s over and the star’s fading . . . [it’s] wonderful for us.” Courtney adds, “We’re getting there.”

The big question on everyone’s mind, of course, is if they are still planning to tie the knot.  “No date set,” admitted Courtney. “We’re engaged, dating, taking it slow. We love each other very much. It took the pressure off. “

Ben adds: “We kind of looked back at some of the other Bachelor relationships that didn’t work out and the reason for that is you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date and all this kind of stuff . . . Let’s figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off.” Makes sense!

If the couple does ever make it down the aisle, they plan to have their wedding in “Arizona or California somewhere,” according to Ben. By the way – no Bachelor in the history of the ABC series has ever wed the woman they picked.

Moving on to Bachelorette Emily Maynard, 25, who is currently filming her upcoming season in her home state of North Carolina, as well as other exotic locations. ABC has now released Emily’s first official photo as the Bachelorette! That pic is below. Her season is expected to air during late Spring.

According to a new report,  Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy‘s marriage continues to remain rocky.

Just how bad is it? The latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine, out on newsstands tomorrow, states that Jason has even gone as far as to move out of the couple’s $5 million luxury TriBeCa home into a nearby Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Jason, 40, is reportedly telling friends he moved into the hotel, leaving the Bethenny Ever After star and their 23-month-old daughter Bryn behind, due to renovations. His friends are, however, not buying his claims as they believe he left due to being fed up with Bethenny’s diva behavior.

“The fighting has gotten worse,” a source revealed to In Touch. Even worse than what we’ve seen on the show? “Bethenny’s a very difficult person in relationships,” the source added.

Jason’s also said to be upset with Bethenny, 41, over her increasing obsession with her fame, looks, and the launch of her LA-based talk show.

“Her energy has been nervous and neurotic,” the source added. “He can’t take it anymore, so he’s been doing everything on his own.”

Yikes. Bethenny has yet to comment on this story, though she did tweet about her anniversary this morning. “Today is my 2nd anniversary!” she wrote.

Bethenny also tweeted this yesterday: “Bryn was in the other room w jason. I heardi smack sound & crying. She fell of her bike on her face. She’s fine but I wasn’t for a while.”

It is plausible that if Jason did move out, he has since moved back in. Perhaps he just needed some time to cool off. But if true, things are definitely not looking good for this marriage.

Oddly enough, Bethenny’s estranged mom, Bernadette Burke, spoke out against Bethenny and her marriage again this week. Talking to Radar Online, Bernadette stated Bethenny had no respect for marriage and would soon get bored with Jason.

“His problem is he’s too nice, and she’ll grab another nice one, he is replaceable,” said Bernadette. “Nice is boring and Bethenny gets bored with nice. I know she is bored because I get bored watching him.”

Bernadette continues, “She cheated on her first husband after her first couple of months of marriage. She doesn’t have any respect for marriage because she has never seen good marriages.”

Bernadette adds that Bethenny married Jason for all the wrong reasons. “She would never have married Jason but she wanted to have a child and the timing was right. She got what she wanted out of this, she married because of public opinion,” she claims. Bernadette also claims Bethenny never cares for her daughter and is always leaving her with nannies to do photoshoots.

While there might be some truth to some of Bernadette’s comments, emphasis on might, I’m not sure how she could be privy to how Bethenny cares for Bryn considering they have been estranged for years.
