This week's Shahs of Sunset was insane. Bravo gets the ick – MJ's sex tapes – out of the way first thing. We pay for this later.Mercedes "MJ" Javid seeks professional help to recover the missing files from her computer. She worries the young, hot computer guy will copy her sex tapes. He finds the files – not a cold chance in hell he enjoys it, let alone copies them.
Next,Mike Shouhed meets with old Vegas friends, Big Baller #1 and Big Baller #2. Their office building is nice and shiny but rather empty inside – much like their secretaries. The Ballers, who finance real estate deals, offer Mike a job as their broker. He promises to think about it, adding, "I want to show everybody a big middle finger, to the entire world and say, 'HAHAHA, I'm the richest.'"
Asa Soltan Rahmati meets with a party planner friend to go over details for the Diamond Water launch party. Not much to see here. She complains about the lack of gaudy gold accessories – yet the whiners on House Hunters never stop complaining about gold this, gold that – and requests a Diamond Water bottle ice sculpture. Asa also reveals she's planning a family reunion in Turkey.
I hate to compare Shahs of Sunset'sLilly Ghalichi to Elle Woods because I LOVE Elle Woods, but, like, ohmigosh, what would you do if she were your attorney? I'm not saying Lilly isn't a bright gal, but my goodness, the vapidness!
She's clearly got some business sense since she has her own line of swim wear and eyelashes (hey, at least it's not a common workout video!), and now Lilly apparently has a new man, too!
Reza and Mike took to their Bravo blogs to share their reactions to this week's show – and to exchange an insult or two of course!
About his party, Rezasaid, "Celebrating with Adam and our close friends was really special. I know the caviar was way over the top, but I don't think you can understand my relationship with caviar, unless you’re Persian or Russian. It was an amazing night and the first time we had guests over in our new home. I will always remember that night - and I cherish the fact that MJ [Javid] and Asa are as close as they are now."
Shahs of Sunset's Reza Farahan taped a segment for Bethenny Frankel's talk show yesterday – and he let her shave off his beloved mustache! In return, Bethenny donated $10,000 to Reza's charity of choice, Project Angel Food.
"I was very nervous," Reza said to Us Weekly. "Bethenny is a very sweet, nice white lady who shaves her white hairs and is not used to angry Persian hairs. I don't think she realized how strong my hair is and I was worried she would take my upper lip off!"
Check out the video and the after photos below – but don't get too attached toReza's clean shaven look. The mustache is definitely coming back. "I am just more comfortable with it," shared Reza. "I feel lonely, like my wingman is gone."
Last night's episode of Shahs of Sunset was fairly uneventful. For me, it felt like a filler episode to set up the showdown betweenReza Farahan and Mike Shouhed on the next episode. Oh but Mercedes "MJ" Javid did do some of that pesky thing us regular folks call a job! I guess that's worth noting.
To kick things off, Reza and Adam Neely are off to the mall. Reza pokes fun at Sears and Nieman Marcus in the same mall – this coming from the man who has Louis Vuitton shoes and IKEA furnishings in the same apartment. As they walk through the mall, Reza and Adam talk about the menu for their upcoming housewarming party, and they just happen to come across a Beluga caviar vending machine – a small can of caviar costs $3500, cash only. First, gross. Second, no problem for Reza, who whips out a wad of $100s. Adam wants to know who carries around that kind of cash, Reza says immigrants! Reza gives Adam props for going with the flow, adding, "With a little more training, he could be the quintessential perfect Persian wife."
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Asa Soltan Rahmati take a Tai Chi class in the park. Asa thinks it'll be good for GG, who lacks impulse control. At the same time, GG tells us, "MJ makes me want to cut her t*ts off and bitch slap her with them." Tai Chi just makes GG horny. Better luck next time, Asa.
