No surprise there re Reza. At first I assumed he was just on the bandwagon Destiney had created with looking for her father, but after last week and his hiding huge expenditures (500k and 15 k respectively), I really felt he was showing his lack of interest in having children. They need to start though, it took Jeff and Gage 5 years from go to Monroe.

I thought that Destiny was so disingenuous in her TH when talking about her father. I almost thought that she had suppressed a smile and that’s why she had the prop fan. To block out her real facial expression.

So, this is the first season that I’ve watched more than one episode of this show, so I’m not sure about the history, but from what I can see Reza is not at all ready for children so it’s a shame that his partner, who he doesn’t seem to have much regard for, is so enthusiastic about becoming a parent.  He (Reza) seems to wear the pants in that family so I guess it’s going to be a while.

I know Reza's dad was Jewish and mom Muslim (or the other way around??)  So Reza considers himself to Jewish and that's why Adam converted?  I thought he was a non practicing- Muslim like I thought everyone but Mike was.

Re: Destiny's family -- I can believe that the family is hiding the father for x reasons. Like, the elders of my family (not Persian, but Dominican) fully knows the identity of my mom's father, whom she has never met, but they won't say anything. I was supposed to meet my mother's full brother (who I've still yet to meet), but "no one knows" what happened to him when I finally had the chance to go to the DR. Thankfully, my mom managed to meet him later on and develop a relationship, but that didn't happen until she was in her 40s.

It's a very old school mentality of taking secrets to the grave because the elders believe they're keeping you safe, even if it hurts (you).

Hmph.  Just me, or has this season been (relatively) (blissfully) drama-free*?  Excepting the bitchy back & forth w/GG and MJ (which appears to have been dropped), everyone is all...getting along & shit.

MJ hit all the right notes in this ep: wise & supportive to Destiney, wisely calling Mike on his usual shit.

I liked tonight, a lot a lot.

 

*and Asa-free.  Coincidence?  I think not.  

Spoiler

In the preview, it only took one line from her to make me roll my eyes & think: Please leave.

I'm not sure where I am on this, but others are saying that this season is boring and who'd a thunk it would take Asa leaving for this to happen. I think it's the calm before the storm, something will happen. Mike will be busted for being a dog again, that's guaranteed but it's not exactly new. I'm pretty much out on the Destiney seeks her father SL, though his multiple passports and polylingual abilities were intriguing, I immediately thought 'spy'. But I do take to making shit up in my own mind when things get slow.

I'm kinda going WTF over Reza and Destiny's moms being friends back in the day.  I mean small community and all, but why not then introduce Destiny via Reza instead of bringing her in as Sherv's (or was it Mike's?) party planner?  And also how has this never come up before?

The Cartier bracelets are nothing more than a status symbol to the people who wear them.  They are ridiculously overpriced because of the Cartier name.  The price on the newer one that looks like a gold nail bent into a circle is crazy.  Reza in particular should look up the phrase “wealth whispers”.

I definitely think this season is WAY more interesting, likely because of Asa’s absence. I had tapped out of most of the last couple seasons because the fights and torturous storylines made me miserable and that’s not how I want to feel when watching a Bravo show :p This season feels like more of a return to S1 to me. There’s some drama but it hasn’t taken over each and every episode. I even kinda liked seeing GG at Nema’s studio.

Yes, they are overpriced, but they are gold and gold is hanging around $1200-$1300 an ounce, and they're pretty solid.  Of course you're paying for the name, just like every other piece of designer fashion/jewelry/shoe.

I think that phrase "wealth whispers" is almost lost in today's celebrity, social media, wannabe society.

I always loved that Jane Birkin of the famous Hermes "Birkin" has only owned 4 of them (given to her by Hermes for use of her name and her design) and only one at a time. Plus she use to haul it around* stuffed like a steam trunk & plastered  with stickers, baubles and a visual history of use (scuffs and scratches). She didn't treat it as a revered object as most do. She owned the the bag, the bag's "status" didn't own her.

*The bag got too heavy and caused her tendonitis.

 

I'm most impressed when something is rich with the stink of history and hopefully a story. I'd be more impressed by a small piece of custom no name jewelry than an off the shelf Cartier anything.

I’m not gonna lie, I’d give my left nut for a Birkin bag.

Oh I understand. I'm mixed on those. Hermes is quality, they last. That's what impresses me. I'd want something similar but with an internal zipper. With the flap just tucked inside or left loose it offers no security, when secured it looks like a pain in the ass to open. 

I'm partial to the "Plume" and a few others.

I've known people who have had stuff swiped from handbags before while they were wearing them or beside them.

I thought the same initially. It's such a weird situation though to basically know nothing about your father at age 37. I definitely would have been hounding my mom about things. I think I know more about my grandmother who died when my dad was a kid than Destiney knows about her father.

Geez, Mike is such a dick. The way he treats forehead Morgan is crap.  Reza is a selfish ho and for the life of me can't figure out what Adam sees in him.  

He sees green with Reza $$$. Why else would he have put up with so much diva behavior for so long? I really think that Reza has made promises to him (inc a baby) but then just turns around and does whatever he chooses to without consulting with Adam. I like Reza but I would respect him if he treated Adam better.

I forgot about this: I LOVED the nail bracelet. I looked up the Nail Bracelet and they start at close to 10k Australian and rapidly jump to basically as much as you want to pay. Mr Queenjen offered to bend a nail around my wrist, which would  work, but I think if I feel I still like the style THAT much in a month or so, I'd get someone to copy it. In silver. Or just metal. 

They are indeed a status symbol

I'm trying to remember if Destiney being friends with Reza ever came up on The People's Couch. 

I don't understand people like Destiney. She acts like finding her father is the most important thing in the world ever and she can't move on in life until she finds him. So, she waits until she's on camera on a TV show to even start to try to find him. 

I fast forward all of her scenes.

When I was younger I always wanted a horseshoe nail ring. The farrier would take a nail, specifically made for shoeing horses, and bend it around his anvil and tada there was ring. If Mr Queenjen made it for you it might cost you all of 50 cents and you might even start a new trend in your area.

I agree. I have a love, hate, who cares opinion towards her.  The search for her father seems like storyline brainstorming happened. The diva with a fan talking head just rang false with me. But I love other aspects of her on the show. She's a big breath of fresh air compared to Asa.

I have to admit if I had an absentee father like Destiney's, I actually wouldn't care to know where he is or what he's up to. I don't really feel the need to get validation from people who've abandoned me.

Mike's mother is worse than Mike. Is she actually blaming Jessica for the demise of the marriage? After the girl converted to Judaism for him and eagerly learned to cook all the favorite Iranian dishes for him, which by the way his mother taught her?  Not good enough for your precious son? What an effed up dynamic between mother and son. 

Oh, and, I don't want to see Destiny crying every episode. That needs to stop.

My eyes nearly rolled out the door when his Mom was talkin that mess.

Jessica bent over backwards to please Mike and he shat all over her in return .

 

That's why I cackled when Nema's sister let him know how she rolls.

Giving zero fucks about his bruised ego, it was GLORIOUS.
