Mike's shoes are made in Mexico?

It appears so. I am all for people doing their thing, but weren't those a style already out? They seem familiar.

I was half watching but they were actually picking up the shoes from one car trunk to another - in a parking lot?  Why was I thinking that there was something shady about that whole deal?

The shoes were nothing special.  I know I've seen that style when I was in high school or college, and I'm an old fart.

Reza is such a shit stirrer.  Why do they even want to call Jessica?  If I recall, no one could stand her last year, now she's supposed to keep in contact with them while she's divorcing Mike?  And why would they be on Mike's "side"?  He was the cheater (serial cheater so it's been reported).  Oh but wait, supposedly Reza has cheated a lot, too.  Then at the shoe event, Reza has to ask Mike how he's feeling since Jessica isn't there.  Why not just leave it alone or ask him later?  Why at the event?  Yeah, I know to jazz up the show and get ratings.  

Not a GG fan, but I'd dump Reza as a friend, too.  He's nasty, plus he just goes at GG no matter what.  Enough already.  Sadly, I think they'll be back to being friends next season.

We called those shoes Wallabees, specifically the desert boot style.

Mike is a fool with his shady partner.

Reza needs to be ostracized .

Asa dump the stupid, ugly, cheesy turbans.

Lord, much as I should hate on the sad little man, I feel so bad for Mike and his shitty luck---he is just one walking bag of FAIL. Even when he finally scrambled into his pathetic little party at Kitson, 15 minutes before it was over,and so desperately unloaded all his basic Mexican shoes into Kitson, those editors just had toss in that snarky final screen cap about Kitson closing its doors not a month after Mike's big shoeline "debut"!

And then after alienating everyone last season defending her honor and his great marital love, he had to cheat on his wife Jessica and mess that up too? He's just such a goddamned fuck-up on so many levels that I don't blame her one bit for ditching his loser ass; the dude almost self-sabotages himself with his fail-whale ways!

Speaking of fuck-up's, as much as I hate her, I don't blame GG for staying away from Reza either. She deserves an apology for how rudely he dissed her on their vacation. Even if he felt that way about doubting her sickness, he was just so unnecessarily cruel about it.

Good for Asa finally addressing her own romantic situation---for those viewers who didn't see her quick mention of her man a few seasons ago, it was nice to see her at least acknowledge her arrangement again. Glad to know they're still doing well and are happy together. Not glad to see that she still wears that ridiculous gold chain muzzle/veil on her mouth.

Shervin finally found a nice lady who he isn't awkwardly insulting on a weird 2nd or 3rd date, wow! Good for him. Her hair is lovely, although she appeared to have the personality of a rock.

MJ gets a proposal from Tommy next week?? Awww...I'm rooting for those two.

The only thing they have in common and the only reason it went beyond a first date is their mutual adoration of the camera and fame.

If the show comes back for a fourth season, Mike needs to take his salary and go back to school and learn how to do something that will earn him a regular wage when this all goes away. If he keeps tossing what little cash he has down drain after drain he is going to be living in some abandoned bus out in the desert.  Or his parents basement.

Yeah the women just can't stay away from him (as per his bragging about being single again).

 

Asa.  That thing she puts on her face.  She looks like that old Bugs Bunny cartoon when Bugs pretends to be a harem woman and throws that lampshade thing over his face.

Oh dear Lord. I will NEVER be able to unsee Asa-Bugs now. Particularly with her switching between the facial jewelry and the giant kaftan-turban-sunglass combo. She looks confused. 

 

Mike is so angry all the time. He truly frightens me. I hope he didn't abuse Jessica but there's a part of me that always worries about him and his volatile temper. 

 

Reza clearly needs/needed therapy. His parents understandably set him off (whose don't?!) but most of us seek help for that so we can be functional adults. And don't even get me started on his comments about other peoples' health problems - particularly if GG is triggered by or suffers from anxiety and panic attacks. That would have set me OFF if he had done it to my face.

Where did Mike get the money to start up his shady shoe business?  

 Jessica changed her phone # and that's the end of it? No more story line there? 

Yea, we get it Reza. You are so happily married. At least for the camera, you are. Shut up about it, already. 

MJ's doctor is right. There is no time to waste if she wants a baby. She's delusional if she thinks there is. Women in their mid 40's don't wait one second longer to start trying if they really want a child.

I always think that's a stripper thong and she just clipped off the part that covers the butt crack. Everything else she kept like the side chains to tie around the face

Why is Mike surprised that Customs is closed on Saturdays?...speaking of which why are you conducting any kind of business on the Shabbat.

Me thinks the parking lot shoe exchange was set up for dramatic purposes. You do not get your shoe delivery the morning of the launch. You get it at least a week before and start playing with the display look, in case anything needs to be overnighted. Those shoe boxes...that's not 500 pairs..maybe 3 styles with one of each size.

He didn't invest any money...he doesn't have any assets...he's just the face. The next ad campaign should be one of Mike leaning down with a shoe up his ass and another protruding out of his mouth

Oh I definitely agree that Mike has no money to invest.  What I meant about throwing money down the drain is that I think he takes his salary from this show and spends it to create whatever image he has going.  Last season he spent it on a rented desk in an office to pretend he was this savvy real estate agent doing big things.  And I think he spends it on whatever shiny and sparkly thing he thinks gives him the flash he deserves and wants everyone watching to think is really him.

As Mike was racing around southern California trying to get his shoes, I kept thinking "Kitson went out business, right??" Mike should have sent his business partner to San Diego to pick up the shoes. Mike should have taken the samples to the party to display. When the actual shoes arrived, he could have launched his passion for shoes spiel.

Dear god in heaven, what will it take to get Reza to stop butting into other people's business and to shut the fuck up? Does someone need to throw more real estate work at him? Sammi was at the party. Reza still wants to be a comedian? Somebody pay for an improv class. Reza is happy in his marriage? I'm going to need Adam to not rest on his laurels in the bedroom so that Reza forgets every name other than Adam's.

I was wondering where I remembered that from! I like Asa though.  I know, lame.  She may be an outer space loon, but she does seem sweet. I thought she rocked that jumpsuit at Kits on! I want one now dang it, but I'm only 4'9" so you know I would just look like a weebleoh. Lol

Reza is a pig.  He thinks he's the OG. I hate his looks, the way he carries himself, his need to be in the middle of everything... blech.

Michael Michael Michael... why would the shoes be coming through customs the day of and not at a minimum, day before?

That's ok.  Anything produced in US, Mexico or Canada strengthens the economy of North America.  Sure USA is best but Mexico is better to say China/India.

Good point!  I thought he could just assemble boxes and put in shoes in the car.

Failure follows Mike around like the dust cloud followed Pig Pen in Charlie Brown.

More like Joe Btfsplk from Lil Abner comics - he had a stormcloud.

Next week preview looks hilarious with Mike and MJ's mom.

I know, I know, me too!  He has just risen to my favorite.  He has just the right amount of rage and good upbringing for this to not be AWESOME.  [rubs hands and skips away]

Asa reminds me of the the daughter from Grey Gardens, wearing things oddly, like a sweater as a skirt or tying scarves around her in various ways and those turbans, (oy vey, very Mrs.Roper) etc...that gold mesh veil made me laugh hard.  Her photography of couples was a nice touch except the pictures of her and Jermaine were obviously taken by someone else.  

Does anyone want to explain to me the fascination with faux funerals for every occasion, now it's a renewal ceremony, Renewal for what? 

Mike and his shoes, when I saw it was Kitson I thought they were closed and the end note mentioned that.  I thought the shoes were meh, I pictured really sleek Italian loafers and tuxedo shoes, not oaf shoes, hot pink oaf shoes at that.  I think the producers may have played with the border crossing a bit or the timing because who schedules a premier of a new product the day the stock is delivered, wouldn't you want to inspect the shipment before you show it to the public? Something was just a little off for me.

Shervin and his dial a date girlfriend was a big snooze, I saw no chemistry between them in person or skyping.

It apparently didn't air yet  but I know what you mean, my TIVO kept recording and recording "La Vida Loca" episodes when ever it was but  when viewed it was "Mr. Souhed's Wild Ride" footage. It was probably a glitch in programming.

I came here to see if anybody had the same issue.

This episode was listed as La Vida Loca (complete with that episode description) on most sites (tvguide.com, zap2it.com, etc) until Monday morning.  I'd guess the cable guides also had it misnamed.  La Vida Loca is episode 14 and will air on Sunday.

I think it's interesting that there's so few comments on this episode. I actually sighed when I saw the show on my DVR. I don't know what it is about this season that just doesn't interest me.

Do you listen to Watch What Crappens? They do impressions of all of the Bravo folks. They had this hilarious bit where Shervin is Skyping with his Australian girlfriend and she asks Shervin if he's talked to Nima about wanting to bottom more. It's terrible and hilarious.

This thing about customs being closed on Saturdays confuses me.  I lived in San Diego for a few years and we went to TJ regularly. Since we worked 6 days a week, the only day we could go was Saturdays.  We never had any problems crossing the border and the custom agents were always there inspecting what we bought.  

ETA: Upon reflection, we lived so close we never drove through the border like Mike did. We drove to the trolley station, parked our vehicle and walked through customs. That must be the difference.

Lived on the boarder of AZ for many years. Yes, totally different experiences driving a vehicle ( very long lines & if they feel like it, at minimal hassle and/or very stressful ) vs walking ( not bad, long lines) across the boarder.  First time in 80's. Last time was 10 years ago. And I can imagine that it is worse, as all this illegal immigration/cartel crap intensifies. Which shows how lame Mike and his partners are for not planning appropriately for the keystone cop transfer of goods across the Mexican Border. Major Fail.

You know, I don't mind Asa's turbans so much.  What I do mind is the cheap fabric, cheap garish decorations and the harsh colors.  I hate the bugsy harem veil, it makes it so hard to figure out what she's saying.  I can read the words from the captions but I can't tell if she's serious or joking or angry or whatever because she covers up half her face including all of her lips.  People have no idea just how much information their faces give out and it's like there's a wall in front of her face when she wears that thing.

I don´t think I´ve ever seen a post on any topic here that says literally EVERYTHING I was thinking about, until now. I agree with all of the above, nothing more nothing less. You even said the gold muzzle was ridiculous, that is so true!
