Shahs of Sunset – Season 7, Episode 8, Clash the Persians
The group arrives at Mike’s before they head to Las Vegas for MJ’s bachelorette party! MJ says she wants to gamble, drink, and hopefully remember nothing. Tommy did not want to go, so MJ could enjoy herself. MJ tells everyone she did not pack a single pair of underwear. This is an vital piece of information!
MJ also wants to gamble in honor of her father. She has fond memories of gambling with Shams, and will be playing his numbers.
In the van to the airport, MJ says she wants her “titties sucked” that weekend. MJ, what do you honestly think Reza has planned for you?
Reza recalls the bachelor party MJ threw for him, which lead to utter debauchery, and Reza getting in trouble. He says he is not going to do his girl wrong like that.
GG gets asked about Nema, and the trip. GG says they will be in Vegas, and he is single, and she is single. Reza tells GG needs to give him some.
Destiney rocks a blue wig, because she wants to feel like someone else in Vegas, and no one needs to know her identity, or real hair color.
Sherv has cornrows. We do not know why. Sherv, your man bun is preferable over appropriation, and the white man bun is an abomination. Sometimes you have to unintentionally rhyme.
Everyone arrives in Vegas, and rides to the Planet Hollywood Hotel on a party bus. Reza has everything covered!
The main suite is decorated for MJ’s bachelorette party, including a banner reminding her she will have one penis for the rest of her life.
When they have a second to themselves, Mike tells Reza he had an argument with Morgan, and she left him.
Mike tells us she wants to meet Mike’s parents, but it will be a huge problem because Morgan is not Jewish. Reza tells Mike he needs to stand up to his parents.
Mike makes a promise to everyone in the room that they are going to get “fucked up” that night,
MJ loves her bridal suite, which has rose petals everywhere. MJ tells us the rule at her party is there is mandatory sex in the champagne room She goes on to say that a bachelorette, or bachelor party is the one time you can have fun, and get away with it. When Tommy had his party, he had a complete blackout, but MJ never questioned him once.
Some of the group sits to talk. GG is having problems with Shalom, who wants the engagement ring back. Mike tries to give her his patented great Mike advice about Shalom, but Sherv cuts him off. GG says it pisses her off when Mike says take off the ring, because that is what Shalom wants. In her opinion, Mike is speaking for Shalom, Mike says she does not want to give the ring back. Mike thinks he can fix the situation, and tells GG he can do this.
Thankfully, Sammy shows up, and immediately asks what everyone wants to drink.
Reza makes everyone put on their bathing suits because it is time to get wasted in the pool!
MJ is treated like a queen, and has a royal spot on a lounge chair. Everyone at the party takes photos of her. MJ tells us she likes not being a small woman who is comfortable with her body, and says she feels really good.
Nema tells MJ he is happy for her and that Tommy is cool with the bachelorette party. Nema asks MJ if she is ready for “one dick forever”. MJ tells Nema at the start of her and Tommy’s relationship, they were having sex six times a day. However, now it is down to twice a week, and Tommy does not want to be told what to do. Nema says MJ has needs and they should be met. In the pool, Reza and Shervin see MJ not drinking, and intervene.
Nema tells Reza they are having a heart to heart conversation. Reza exclaims, “It’s a bachelorette party biatch!” Cut to scenes of the crew swimming with a sex doll, and otherwise having drunk fun.
Before dinner, the group gets dressed for diner. As Sherv gets reay, Reza tells us all about what Shervin smells like. Reza says Shervin wears strong insect repellent as cologne, it is the most shocking smell you have ever smelled in your life. He continues further, saying if you cannot breathe, stand next to Shervin, who will clear up your sinuses. Reza, is there anything else you need to tell us about Shervin’s horrible cologne?
Reza tells Shervin that Morgan moved out of Mike’s house, He says while they are in Vegas having fun, Mike is dealing with a lot. Shervin thinks they should all talk to him. Reza wants to wait until Mike is a little drunk. Yes, wait until Mike gets drunk, so he will explode.
Adam asks MJ why girls have so many lip glosses, and what she plans on doing with other men this weekend. MJ says she wants to do as much as she can, without Tommy calling off the wedding. MJ talks a big game, but I do not think she means any of this.
Everyone gathers in the main suite, and cheers when MJ walks into the room.
They head to dinner.
Reza gives us a possible history lesson about Las Vegas. He says Bugsy Siegel must have had a Persian right hand man, telling him to fill the strip with good gambling, food, and women. Reza says Las Vegas was invented for Persians.
As the whole table listens, GG asks Mike how he is doing. He says he feels good She asks when he feels good, does he likes to hurt other people. This of course, referring to his friendship with Shalom, and GG feeling that is where Mike’s loyalty lies at the moment. MJ asks why Mike is friends with Shalom. Mike tells GG if she is done with Shalom, she should not wear his ring, because she is giving him mixed signals. Mike says he called Shalom today to tell him to stop calling GG, and Bravo shows us video receipts.
MJ and Reza tell everyone to change the subject, and everyone gets down to eating and drinking.
Mike is apparently in the mood to start something, so he tells MJ she and Tommy have some problems in her relationship. MJ says is not like the “mama’s boys” in this crowd, adding she lives for her and does what she wants. MJ asks Mike if he likes to pick on Morgan.
This gets Mike very upset, and he responds by saying MJ has had half the city. MJ calmly says she has had the whole city. She tells Mike he is a whore, and asks if he cannot admit that. MJ brings up Mike cheating on his Jessica. MJ does not take your crap!
Reza tells us the fact that Mike has the nerve to tell one of his best friends she is a slut who fucked half the city is beyond his understanding. We feel you Reza. Honestly, do not slut shame someone, especially if you engage in the same activity.
Reza tells Mike to get real. He asks Mike, where is Morgan. Mike tells Reza to not start antagonizing him, and calls Reza brother like Hulk Hogan. Shervin says Reza told him Morgan moved out. Mike feels hurt that he confided in Reza, and Reza broke his confidence. Mike talks about the house project. Reza gets up, and yells at Mike, that he has been ruining the house project, and has been doing all of the work.
Mike leaves the table, and Destiney goes after him.
GG asks everyone at the table if they can please switch the topic back to Shalom again, so this fight stops.
Reza tells the table he is sick of listening to Mike’s nonsense, and is sick of dealing with the house project with Mike.
Mike returns to the table. MJ toasts to keeping it real, and strong no matter what. MJ tells Mike she loves Morgan. She apologizes for asking questions, and crossing the line. Mike also apologizes for crossing the line. MJ and Mike hug, and Mike cries. MJ tells Mike not to be mad at Reza, but Mike is furious. Mike tells us if you betray him, he will “fucking” cut you, and put you in his circle of war. Is Mike a fan of Game of Thrones, a fan of ancient Greek warfare as a Persian, or is this just a string of words that escaped Mike’s mouth? We will never know, and this is one of the great mysteries of Shahs of Sunset.
After dinner, it is time to party at Mr. Chow’s! The club greets the group with a bridal party for MJ, confetti, and a congratulations message on the main screen.
As the party continues, MJ notes that all the single people are not with her right now. MJ says she has her entourage, more specifically, her “gay entourage”, which makes her feel like Madonna in the ’90s. MJ, gay people are not your accessories.
MJ announces she is going back to her room. Almost everyone stays at Mr. Chow’s. MJ tells us the time upstairs in her room, with her entourage is a memory she will always remember, and fills her heart with joy. She hopes to set an example on how to have a bachelorette party. No MJ, and if I hear you say entourage again, I will have a seal slap you in the face with an octopus.
MJ somehow gets security to let her into Reza’s room. Reza, trying to sleep, tells her to leave, but she wants Reza and Mike to talk things out.
MJ wishes Tommy could be with her this night.
More party to come next time!
What did we learn this week – Where to start.
Shev, cornrows are not for you.
Mike, it is not alright to slut shame anyone, close friend, or not.
MJ, gay people are not your accessories.
Why did Mike start with MJ, just because he was angry about fighting with GG? Why did that even happen? Will we ever know?
