Nice scene showing MJ hanging with Tommy’s “family” in Queens!

(btw, MJ and Tommy are just as messy in hotel rooms as they are at home - even the blinds were messed up.)

Asa’s recollection of the beginning of her relationship with Jermaine. Wow.  I’m pretty sure I had an acid trip once where the same exact thing happened.

When Asa and LaToya were looking at all the baby Versace clothes, I was wondering who was going to pay for them. My guess is LaToya. 

IRL who buys a couple hundred dollar outfit for an infant that will likely outgrow it within weeks? 

She should be designing baby boy caftans.

Reza was correct in one thing he said tonight.  As the matriarch of my very white family, I don't give a shit about anything anyone in my family wants to do and they don't give a shit about what I have to say about what they want to do.

"The Jacksons are the most famous family in the world...I want to be part of that family."

Yup.  I feel done with Asa.  Not because she wants to be part of her babydaddy's family, but for the reason she gave to want to be part of it.  And the "Not living together/no marriage" talk just makes it weirder and more unpleasant.  Pick a side, Asa.

It's so incomprehensible that Mike's mother sees Jessica as the one at fault. Then to hear that his mom expects an apology from Jessica, I'm astounded. These people are horrible.

Did Shervin sleep with Desteny (whatever with the spelling) and that's what he was apologizing to her about?  I thought the cheating storyline was that he had slept with Tara (the Honda Civic)?

In middle eastern families, it is very common for a man's mother to dislike his wife for whatever reason. The daughter in law could be awesome/easygoing/educated/family oriented whatever, but she will never be good enough for her little Doodool Tallah or however its pronounced. (Im speaking from my own and the experience of many friends). I have heard many stories where a Middle Eastern MIL feels the need to be "alpha female" in her son's life. A lot of Pakistani women (not exactly middle east, but you get the gist) will tell stories of abusive mother in laws. So it makes sense to me that Mike's family will either not dare believe that her son committed adultery, or decide that his wife must have done something to deserve it and should therefore aplogize for her grievances. 

IMO shes mad because Jessica outed him on national T and brought shame to them. However if your son is big enough of an asshole to cheat immediately after a $500,000 wedding maybe he should be outed on TV.

What a boring, boring show. I literally was nodding off a'la Mike at GG's own boring, boring show. I think after this latest intensely boring, boring show from this ridiculously boring, boring season, I'm finally, officially done with this mess. Seriously, when I find the premiere episode of "Don't Be Tardy" more entertaining than this garbage, I know it's time to go.

I will say this though: Asa, wtf is wrong with you? Anyone who proudly claims to want to be a part of the whackadoodle Jackson family is either after money, reflected glory or serious famewhoredom. If you wonder why your man won't marry you, maybe this is why---the thirst is insanely real.

This episode wasn’t that bad, it seemed to be more of a filler episode however, like they had maybe 15 more usable minutes from the nyc trip, so they added in filler to make it a whole episode. Can’t believe next week is the season finale. Before the 3 reunion episodes of course. 

The crew seemed to gel and were all having fun in NY. Lots of fun and laughs. Gigi’s engagement to Shalom seems so off to me. So he picked a fight to throw off her expectations so he could propose? Or he knew he messed up by picking the fight with her, and then went to buy a huge ring to make it up to her, and then Proposed? Why the hurry to marriage? Did Production promise the next person who got married a spin-off or something? Anyway, let’s see how long this will last. Counting down for an explosion in 3...2...1...

 Without Asa, there seems to be less drama and competition. I thought Asa was the zen one? Why is she on this delusional tip that her friends are not”supportive” just because they don’t believe her miracle baby, immaculate conception lies and are no longer kissing her ass? Or is she upset because no one has thrown her a baby shower yet? Because it seems like her fondest wish is for tons of gifts and to give her an audience to complain about all the rigors of pregnancy. Asa acts like she is the first woman to ever get pregnant in the history of mankind. And that her miracle baby with the golden dool will be the one to bring peace to the Middle East, while dancing.

I wish we had started a thread in season 1 of all of the lies told on this show. The whole crew has lied at one time or another, but Asa’s lies are next level to me.  Funny how each season one member is in the doghouse  every season. It’s Asa’s turn and production is not protecting her as they usually do. Do we know if Asa will attend the reunion, or does she skip it?

IMO, Asa wants the others to physically carry her around in a golden chair while feeding her organic grapes and rubbing her feet 24/7! Nothing less will do in her mind. LOL

Quick, let's start a go fund me page to buy designer baby clothes for the golden dool. Versace, Dior, Chanel, and maybe we can get Christian Siriano to do something custom. Why? Because she deserves nothing but the best! (Sarcasm) Please Christian, remember to leave extra extra room in the private area because don't you know that this baby will have the biggest dool ever. He'll have to grow into it.

I am so sick and tired of these "Shah's" getting drunk and proclaiming that they are "Familyyyyyy" and that the love each other. No, you are not family, hardly see each other when you aren't filming and definitely don't love each other.  Let's just play back some of the horrible, mean , disgusting and hurtful things you all have said and done to one another in the past. 

LaToya's face has become very scary. She looks exactly like Michael after he jumped over the plastic surgery ledge.  

I'm back to disliking Tommy again. That didn't take long.

Okay I thought it was just me.  I rewound twice trying to figure out why he's needs to show contrition to Destiny at all, but especially when (unless I missed it) he'd never said the words to Analise.  Or maybe it happened off camera?

So pretty much like most mothers in law then?  lol.   I kid, I kid, but this rings true for so many other non middle eastern cultures I'm familiar with it makes me sick.   I think it's a mother and son thing.  And if he's a first born, just save yourself some time and drink the poison already.    The delusion is impressive though.  Why would you continue to appear on national tv, knowing you did your wife dirty? 

 

2 different people in 2 different talking heads described Shalom as bipolar.   I giggled.    That play felt hella long.  I can't lie, I thought he was gonna rage out.

 

I don't know whether I admire or withdraw from women who stand up on a bar in dresses.   I also kind of feel like, this is his family, they're used to his personality, but you should probably be respectful enough to watch your mouth.

 

Asa your doctor didn't say she wants you to to stay away from your friends.  Your mom told her you weren't relaxing and she asked what was stressing you and you said toxic relationships with your friends and she said then get away from toxicity.   But nice reach.    Also what the fuck are psychedelic blueberries? 

It made me feel old for a second that no one cared/recognized LaToya Jackson, but to be fair they might not know her from her original face

Homegirl, says but "It's so Persian!".   They run LA.   Family is EVERYTHING, bitch.  How can that bore you?  OK, just kidding.  I hate watch this, mostly.  But sometimes love them.  

I continue to marvel at the amount of food ordered when they go out.   I have to watch next season to know if Reza cuts down on the food ordering now that he is thin.

There's a blind item floating around about how Asa lost her baby weight.  It was cocaine benders and starvation.  If it's true, I feel so bad for that baby but that sounds like such an Asa thing to do.  Be all "no, I don't want chemicals in my body" re: the vaccines on her public face but all "yay cocaine" in private.

 

Granted, it's from CDAN which is notoriously full of lies but it does have that air of truth about it, with the two faced behavior. She said she lost her baby weight in 8 days, and I don't know how she could have without starving herself. She said she only gained 18 pounds for her pregnancy which she said was baby and fluids.  We all saw her, she gained more than just baby.

 

I'm not dismissing that some women lose weight quickly after pregnancy.  My own mother was a little over 100 pounds when she got pregnant, she retained a ton of water and weighted 168.  By the time she left the hospital a nearly a week later, she had peed out all the fluids and was back to her pre-pregnancy weight.  My sibling was many weeks premature (nearly 6, and that sibling was already almost 6 pounds), they had run to the hospital without stopping to pack.  What did my dad bring her?  Well, it as summer, so he grabbed shorts...as in, hot pants.  My mother groaned but managed to get them on, which is more surprising than the weight loss.

 

So, yeah, women do lose weight quickly, but like I said, Asa had gained more than just baby weight.

 ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 10/05 **#7**
This B- list reality star on a cable show that somehow stays on the air season after season recently had a baby. She went on a coke and starvation binge to lose the baby weight. Asa Soltan Rahmati ("Shahs of Sunset")

I started out big, but I gained twenty pounds during the first eight months of pregnancy, then twenty more in that last month. The last month was mostly fluid. I left the hospital thirty pounds lighter.

Asa is really being a bratty princess. I frankly love the editing with her this season. I wonder how demanding she was to film this season? Maybe this is well earned revenge.

I'm proud of GG for seeing her acting gig all the way through. I was surprised she dedicated time to memorize her lines and actually put some effort into the endeavor. Hopefully she focuses and finds a career path she wants to pursue.

Has Asa always been this bitchy, or did this show turn her into a grade A asshole?

I worked for a woman who, like Asa, was a little chubby before her second baby. She gained 15 pounds but lost nearly 40. The doctor said her body used her  existing fat for the baby.

Also Asa looks like she has a waist cincher in the second picture.

Just as a little side note, I cant imagine Asa goin on a coke binge or intentionally starving herself immediately post partem. I am going to guess that she lost the baby weight through breastfeeding. It may not work for everyone, but for me, I literally was the thinnest I have ever been in my life while breastfeeding. (It was awesome!!! I pretty much ate as much as I wanted to as well.)

Adipex.  Not suggesting she took some but prescription strength weight loss meds.  It's basically low grade speedballing so you're parched (forces you to get more water in) you're irritable/jittery (high adrenaline that keeps you going through a work out if you like that sort of thing) and your appetite is suppressed (so take all this diamond water and extra yoga now add zero food).  You drop weight very quickly but you earn every pound.   Say all that to say 18lbs in 8 days, especially if the first 12 are water, is possible.

This sounds more like her aesthetic.   It's not the number per se, Asa had a big ole dump truck booty but an essentially flat stomach pre pregnancy.  All the contracting that comes from breastfeeding would help put you back at whatever your default is.   God's got a sense of humor though, cause, teeth.  Lol.

Finally, someone (GG) asks Asa a (THE) question most of us want to know!  Now, will she be honest in her answer? http://www.bravotv.com/shahs-of-sunset/season-6/videos/your-first-look-at-the-shahs-season-6-reunion

Thanks for sharing that clip, WireWrap. I honestly don't understand how this crew can go from throwing daggers at one another to buddy-buddy and back again over and over ad nauseam. When will they reach the point of no return (I think Asa has).

It looks like Reza and Adam may not have a monogamous relationship they portray on television. Interesting.

IMO, Asa feels that way now only because they are calling her out, questioning her BS stories, something she has done to all of them (except Reza) since the show started. This crew isn't really any different from any HW show, they all throw daggers then double kiss each other in the next episode or the next season. LOL

I admit, I never thought Reza was monogamous with Adam. It will be interesting to hear if Adam is with Reza and if this is a nasty surprise to him or if they have an agreed upon open marriage.

Would someone be willing to summarize what happened?  These sorts of clips aren't captioned and I'm deaf.

It's mostly Shahs asking each other questions without the answers but.

Tommy says he likes Vida better than MJ, which causes tears . Shervin offers to Facetime Annalise. While she can hear they ask Shervin if he wants to be monogamous. Reza says gay marriage is different when asked about monogamy. Destiny says none of their dhools are for her. They flat out ask Asa about IVF, she defers to Reza. GG asks Asa why she does the show. Andy announces that Shalom is there, he comes out, they ask if he is interested in GG for a green card. GG asks for an ambulance.

Think that's most of it.

Does Tommy really say he likes Vida better than he likes MJ?  Or does he say he likes Vida better than MJ likes Vida?  If it's the former, that's pretty bad for MJ, that he likes someone who emotionally abused her daughter better than he likes her daughter.

I think it's Timmy saying he likes Vida more than MJ likes her. I also don't think that's what causes MJ's tears. And I don't think reza is about to fully own up to non monogamy even tho I do think they have an arrangement

Yeah it was edited quickly but it appears that when she gets up crying she is sitting next to Reza not Tommy who she was sitting next to when he said the line.

Does anyone know when this was Filmed? Curious if this is what got GG and Shalom dating again or if they were already seeing each other and it's a typical deceptive edit.
