Shahs of Sunset Recap: Persian Pride Parade

Hola Trashies!

I can’t believe Bravo snuck an episode in, as such, the first one didn’t record.  The nerve!  I knew there was something missing when I watched Tuesday night’s episode.  Geez.  At least the producers edit the show in such a way that I noticed.  You can’t say that for most Bravo shows I guess.  Anyway, moving on.  The show opens with Mike in bed incredulous at Reza’s behavior at the club the night before.  He says he’s never seen Reza act that way before and I call bullshit.  I think they’re just used to seeing him lash out at his friends not strangers.

In other news, how cute is Mike’s pup!  Let’s see more of this dog, please.

Mike goes to lunch with his brother and it’s kind of boring. They’re ordering drinks and gossiping about the drama the night before.  His brother is nice and all but zero personality.

Brothers don’t let brothers dress like an early 90′s white rapper.  What’s up Fresh Persian Prince of Sunset?

Mike and his brother are talking about how embarrassing the night before was, and he’s also excited about being on the float for the club.  He tells his brother he doesn’t want Reza on the float,which is understandable.  So at the restaurant he steps outside and calls Reza to tell him not to bother being on the float.  It’s kind of funny, because Reza is simultaneously disgusted and jealous.  He tells off Mike, and then hangs up on him.  Honestly, I don’t think that phone call even needed to be made because I don’t think Reza would have gone anyway.  Just so he could have something to seem self-righteous about.  He hangs up on Mike and I laugh.

But props to Mike for being straightforward and letting him know that his actions were out of line and he needs to shape up and act right.  I appreciate that.  But I guarantee you Reza doesn’t.   Always agree with the mustache

At Reza’s condo, Reza is furious at Mike.  But he’s also furious at himself.  He tells us that he did an act that he finds repulsive (calling Sasha’s brother the F-word).  Adam tells Reza  that he’s concerned that the Mike situation could end up like the MJ situation and asks him what he can do to help him.  Honestly, Adam is way too good for Reza, and Reza should never let him go.  Even if this shit is scripted, I have to say that seemed genuine.  I am officially Team Adam.  Reza agrees with me and interviews that Adam is the best.  Well, duh.

At Asa’s house, Asa decides to make some veggie juice for her Mom to break her mother’s Cheetoh addiction.  It goes probably about as well as you’d expect.  Asa’s Mom says that when she gets fat she’ll just get lipo.  LOL!  She also refuses to drink water, which is great because – she’s gonna be drowning in unsold diamond water.  Anyway, Asa makes a juice for her Cheetoh loving mother and it goes about as well as you’d expect with her mother comparing it to diarrhea and vomit.  Lovely!  She pours it down the sink and eats some Cheetohs.

MJ and Mike meet up for lunch and she deep-throats  some whipped cream while getting her ass chewed by Mike.  Mike has her number and believes that MJ only sides with Reza because she’s afraid of losing his friendship again – which is why she sides with him even when he’s wrong.  Damn, is Mike the moral center of this show?  I would NOT have seen that coming after the first season – I took him for a total shallow playboy.   But he’s very insightful.  Shit.  How does this happen on a Bravo show?  Shocked.

I’m sorry, I can’t hear myself think over the sounds of your whipped cream orgasm

Mike says that the kid cried after Reza left and that Reza was wrong.  Mike finally agrees with Mike and says that Reza should not make someone who is insecure about their sexuality feel even worse and kick him further into the closet.  Yes!  MJ kind of admitted she was wrong about something! Amazing.  MJ says she feels bad about Sasha hurting but she felt she had to stick up for Reza regardless.  MJ takes the disinvitation to Persian Pride parade pretty well, but I think the whipped cream helped.

Next we meet with Lily who brags more about her business and her tacky bathing suits.  Sorry but a lace body suit bathing suit is just hideous.  Ugh.  anyway, apparently this idiot is going to do some branding for another bathing suit line which – what the fuck?  Isn’t that like a conflict of interest?  Also she interviews that she doesn’t really follow trends in the swimwear industry which – the HELL?   This is why I do not for a second believe that her business is a real business. It’s gotta just be a way for her parents to get a tax benefit or some shit.  Anyway, Lily simultaneously bores me and annoys me.  Moving on.

    Love your recaps….probably more than watching the actual show. When they first showed Lily (ugh) hitchhiking on the parade route, I honestly thought it was a drag queen version of her.

  2. NotWithoutMyTV NotWithoutMyTV says:

    I utterly reject Reza’s redemption story arc. The person or situation most responsible for Reza’s egregious asshattery is Reza.

    So screw him, and his shoe-black Saddam ‘stache, too.

    @ eyediosmio- I’m forever amused by my girl, GG. She was horrified HORRIFIED that MJ (wrongly) outed her extracurricular snogging but she’s running around on camera like a cat in heat looking for another Y chromosome. I agree with Lizz, your recaps are better than the show. LOVE IT!

    I’m sure Reza’s outburst is not isolated or reserved only for his ‘friends.’ With the way these clowns act like they own joints, I’m very sure our Persian poseurs have seen Reza go off on many strangers. The only difference this time is cameras were rolling capturing Reza’s douchbaggedness in all its hateful glory. Mike is dumb as a rock (people who buy million dollar homes don’t pay attention to bus adverts- Hell, I rent an apartment and I don’t pay attention to bus adverts) but he’s media savvy enough to know the public backlash might affect him professionally. He’s tolerated Reza being a jerk up to the point where it’s making him (Mike) look bad by association. That’s why Mike distancing himself.

  4. eyediosmio says:

    Why thank you! I was going to make a drag joke about Lily, even her daytime looks resemble a drag version of her. She’s a mess.

  5. eyediosmio says:

    We’ll see how genuine his “redemption” truly is. I mean, even shitty people hurt sometimes, right?

  6. eyediosmio says:

    Good point about Mike distancing himself from Reza for business reasons. I agree about the bus ad, though. The wealthy don’t pay attention to bus ads.

    And you’re right on about GG not helping herself in the boy crazy department. She’s a mess.

  7. labowner says:

    You say Mike’s brother is boring, I think he is a normal person like most of us who want nothing to do with reality tv. Also, is Bravo paying for the camping trip, the party etc so they don’t need to manufacture the get togethers?

    Last season it was GG. She was uninvited to events because of her attitude and this season it is Reza. Will the tables turn on MJ next season?

    Might we see the beginnings of a mid-life crisis for Reza? Knowing Reza’s ego, he probably thinks he looked just as good as Sasha does when he was that age.

    Eye I am assuming Sasha wore that ensemble because he knew he mostly likely be on camera. Just remember, not all “friends” end up becoming full time members. Even Greg from Jersey had to give up trying to become a regular.

    Yes, but the pain of shitty people matters less.

    That’s why I donate money to the ASPCA and not to Feed Your Local Meth Face. When people are in bad situations–and start wining about it–you can often trace their desperate straits back to an incredibly poor decision or action. Dogs and cats can’t say “Today, I’m gonna stop contributing to society and make money by acting like a reprobate on TV.” Shit just happens to them. (Syrian refugees, too, I guess. Unless they sign up for Bravo’s “Not So Civil War: Syrian Glitteratti”.)

Have your say!
