I don't condone what Tommy did. It was wrong. What Reza said didn't excuse it. But if I had to pick a guy friend between Reza or Tommy, Tommy it is. He strikes me as someone who'll leave you alone as long as you leave him and his loved ones alone. Reza is vicious, and I'm not sure he's capable of love. Is there one person in his life he treats well? MJ isn't perfect, but she is capable of love.
I get that intelligent people are more interesting, especially for a reality show. You want to watch someone who has something to say and keeps things going. But I'd much rather have to personally deal with someone dumb and boring. It could be a personality, experience, and generational thing. I'm anxious, a private person, and already have trouble trusting. As much as simple people bore me, a vindictive person who has no problem putting my most personal business on blast? No thank you!
