This week, Mohammed comes home from holiday to inspect the job Sammy has overseen for him whilst he was away and Sammy gets a big pat on the back for a job well-done. Sammy, who admires the enormity of the projects Mohammed undertakes, dreams of one day building homes for billionaires and working with a different league of client.
Reza goes on a blind date with Cheyenne, so young that Reza’s waiting for Chris Hansen to show up and arrest him. It’s a very uncomfortable date and there’s no chemistry for many reasons, but primarily because of the age difference. Reza points out that he blew his last major, 7 year relationship with an infidelity and doesn’t want to ever repeat that mistake.
We get to see Asa pretending zen on her rooftop and make a trip with her to a producer who tells her this is not the kind of music he wants to be a part of, that she’s got to dumb-it-down if she wants to make a hit and that having the song in English would probably be more relatable. Asa, not willing to compromise her musical integrity, is not going to adjust her music to meet the masses.
MJ, who is celebrating her birthday, invites Reza and her mom over to dinner for a quiet celebration. Reza’s gift to her, a colonic rinse, is a highlight. He wants her to lose weight and has fooled her into believing she’ll drop a ton of weight through this procedure. We get to watch as they get probed up their asses. Reza pretends not to like the procedure by whining with each step, while MJ seems not to be taking too well to the procedure. This gift doesn’t sit too well with me, does it you?
This most recent episode of the Shahs of Sunset, however, appears to be mostly about GG, who is celebrating her parents 40th wedding anniversary by joining with her sister in buying her parents a new Mercedes Benz. Her sister, married and employed, is all business as they sit at the Mercedes dealership. She successfully negotiates an excellent purchase agreement with $1,500 down and a payment of $536, playing hardball with the sales agent.
GG went to the dealership with her sister because she believed the gift to be a joint gift, but her sister, who knows GG and her financial situation (GG is financially supported by Daddy) seems shocked that GG is planning on making the payments with her, saying “this is a 36 month commitment, you know?” GG likes to play “Mrs. Big Stuff”.
Before the Mercedes scene, however, we get to eavesdrop on a lunch GG is having with her dad where he pulls out her credit card bills and scolds her for her over-the-top spending. $8,600 this time. He’s tired of financing her lifestyle and wants her off his payroll. He wants her to marry already so someone else can take over his job, but she points out that she’s trying and until she finds someone else to foot the bill, he’s just going to have to handle it.
Reza, who doesn’t want to go to GG’s parents 4oth, goes over to GG’s house to visit and inform her he won’t be attending because he’s got a blind date that night. As a conversation piece, GG pulls out her arsenal of knives to share with Reza. Her knives have names, as does the taser she pulls out. She likes weapons and used to shoot guns when she’d go to her parents ranch when she was a kid. BFD.
The 40th is here and GG seems to have borrowed someone’s Quinceañera dress for the occasion. The guests must have been wondering if she has taken the title “Daddy’s Little Girl” too seriously. MJ is several HOURS late and this becomes GG’s focus, pissed that MJ has disrespected her parents by her tardiness. MJ states that she’s late because, unlike GG who lives off daddy’s paycheck, she is a big girl and actually works for a living and puts business before pleasure. This makes sense to the reasonable man, but GG isn’t reasonable and views the event as a great travesty. GG, using some rare adult judgment, decides not to ruin her parents evening by killing MJ in front of all the guests, so will take the issue up at a later time. Uh oh, will GG pull out one of her weapons for that fight?
