Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! Whether you're celebrating with the love of your life or just an extra large black coffee like this gal, make sure to partake in some candy and go out of your way to make even strangers feel appreciated. To be honest, I've never understood this holiday. Even when I've been in serious relationships, I think people should strive to do grand gestures for loved ones any and every day…not just the day that Hallmark pressures them. Perhaps I'm feeling bitter because I didn't get flowers this morning…
Do you know who is celebrating today in a new relationship? Why, it's Mercedes "MJ" Javid from Shahs of Sunset! The perpetually single Persian party girl is finally settling down with a new guy…or trying to, at least! It's hard to say if MJ will ever really calm her wild ways.
Picking up where we left off, Lilly preaches how it's illegal to have a knife at a dinner party. What is she talking about? This skinny bitch obviously never had to cut a steak or a loaf of bread. When Asa Soltan Rahmati says she's leaving because the dinner party is "so wack. literally," Reza pushes Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi to start apologizing. A smug-faced Asa sits on her imaginary throne, waiting, and GG says, "I personally didn't want to violate you in a physical form, and I am sorry for that. I can't say that I'm sorry for the source of my anger, but I am sorry that I had to react to my anger in that way." Asa busts out the air quotes to mock GG's "apology" and says GG is crazy and doesn't deserve her friendship.
Will someone please shove a diamond down Asa's throat so she shuts up? She just goes on and on, talking over GG, which makes GG lose her patience. Asa says, "You've been nothing but whack. For one year, you've been nothing but whack." GG mocks Asa right back, saying, "wha-wha-wha-whack!!!" Do adults seriously use the word whack so much?
Season 2 of Shahs of Sunset has taken Bravo viewers by storm. The hard-partying Persian crew has learned from its network counterparts and created some over-the-top drama. Friendships have been formed and destroyed. Relationships break-up as quickly as they began. Whether Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi is swimming in whiskey and battling Asa Soltan Rahmati or Reza Farahan is stirring the pot, people are watching, and they are enthralled. Of course, don't even get me started on the shallowness of self-proclaimed Persian Barbie Lilly Ghalichi!
Mercedes "MJ" Javid was at the center of controversy this season, as she tried to play the middle man for friends turned foes. Her partying was called into question, and her relationship with biffle Reza suffered. Not phased, MJ has been sharing her path to self-confidence. As she should…MJ and cast mates have almost reached Housewives franchise status. The gang is getting a two-part reunion and a lost footage show. That's how you know you've arrived, Bravo style!
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
One thing I'll say about the girls of Shahs of Sunset, they have body confidence like no other – no matter what their size!
After facing heat for flaunting her body in a bathing suit, Mercedes "MJ" Javid is announcing that she so does not care about being thin – and she's proud of how she looks!
"I don't want to be skinny!" MJtells In Touch Weekly while baring her curves in a monokini for the mag. I wonder if it was co-star Lilly Ghalichi's line? Doubt it, considering Lilly has been one of the main opponents of MJ's body!
MJ reveals that her weight fluctuates and she vacillates between sizes 8 to 10, but she's fine with it! “I am not ashamed of my body,” she admits. “Skinny is not appealing to me.”
Asa is headlining the Persh-a-Pelooza (Bravo's spelling) because she fancies herself the Persian Pop Priestess. Reza gives Asa a citrine stone for good luck, and Asa likes its energy. Lovely. She'll be making citrine milkshakes next season. #staytuned
Reza ruins Asa's warm and fuzzy rock feelings by insisting she have dinner with GG. Asa says she's far too busy playing pop star and spreading her love energy to worry about GG, adding, "GG's malicious. She doesn't value anything. There's nothing human about her. I don't want people like that in my life." Reza is like, Asa, I gave you a rock! Asa is like, You play dirty. Fine. One second of anything slightly wack, I'm out. Deuces!
The stars of Shahs of Sunset never fail to baffle amuse me. No, they amuse baffle me. Both? Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi thinks Shahs of Sunset is the 'Rosa Parks' of TV (true story) and Mercedes "MJ" Javidsays Bravo makes her out to be a hotter mess than she really is (at least she's a lovable hot mess). MJ also reveals who her non-Shahs friends are on Bravo!
Recalling Rosa Parks and her pivotal role in the civil rights movement, GGsays, "She got a lot of drama for [her refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man], but at the end of the day it started something so revolutionary and I feel like we are doing the same in respect of the entertainment industry."
"Americans have always had such a bad outlook on the Middle East, but we are the most successful and radiant culture," GG adds. "I'm just glad they are finally looking at us."
