Asa offers some clarity about her financial situation.

on Dec 31, 20120

Hey Everyone!

It seems to me that there is some confusion regarding my involvement in my parents' financial state.

The fact is that my life is and has always been dedicated to making my parents' life easier, particularly my Mom's life. I have actually financially supported my parents since I was in my early 20s, with regular payments every month. You didn't see me talk about this before because I don't want to put my father on blast about having lost his business, etc. I also like to take them on a vacation when I can, seven out of the last ten years I have taken my family on a family vacation. We've been to Hawaii a few times, Belize, and Jamaica. We are a very very close knit family and I definitely don't see this as "my" money or "their" money. All money is OUR money. And if there is no money, you better believe that I am laser focused on getting it. Since my father lost his business a few years ago, it got more serious and I more than ever realized that I want and need to make a lot of money and really take care of them. My father doesn't have a retirement plan or anything like that. While taking care of them had always been a priority to the point of obsession for me at that point the sense of urgency exploded in my mind.

I bought my property in 2003, and it has more than tripled in value!

My property is in the best part of Venice Beach where property value is higher than Beverly Hills. I have a couple of tenants who are my main source of steady income. I have worked very hard to get my property to be where it is at and I am so very blessed that this investment has paid off as it has, however, stakes got so much higher when my parents' situation shifted not too long ago.

I wonder if you have even taken the time to read all of the feed back from your blog because it seems like you have gotten worse with each episode.

Hello ! does anyone know how to make the rice dish with saffron that was featured on the show ? Asa was at her parents house and the bottom was nice and crusty and had that wonderful color. Ive searched online and they say its Paella ,But the reciepes ive looked at all have chicken and/or seafood in it. On the show it looked like a rice dish (side dish) i didnt see any chicken or anything else but that golden rice with the saffron. Anyone have the receipe i'd be grateful! cant wait to try it!

I don't like the way you being acting this season why are you so mean?  Why are you trying to get GG and MJ off the show?  With friends like you and Reza who needs enemies.

blah, blah, blah -- you run around in your little mercedes and live in your venice beach house with money buried under it while your mother works herself to death supporting the family.  your blatant efforts to get money from reza won't work and you and reza digging through mj's purse showed you up for the nasty, classless bullies that you are.  do you ever wonder why, at your age, your "creativity" has yet to pay the rent?  mj and gg have more integrity than you and reza, together, will ever posses.  shame on the two of you :(

Asajoon you are such a strong woman with seriously powerful creativity! I work in a different creative field but you definetly inspire me. I'd love to see more of your artwork (paintings, screen prints) on the show. Just downloaded some iTunes and will be celebrating with you as you become hugely successful! Cheers!

The twilight zone Asa?? Really?? When someone says something u don't like or u don't want to hear, u make some ridiculous comment that U don't know what they are talking about!! I can't believe your behavior towards MJ like u are all high and mighty and perfect! U are flawed big time Asa and are certainly not perfect! U should seriously think about what u say before u sat it!! Judging MJ!! Who are u to accuse her of pill popping on national tv? What is wrong with u seriously, get some class!!!

I liked you better last season. This season you seem to be devolving into a mean girl.

I ADMIRE  your strength and for being a real person and not being fake and playing for the cameras.  I don't understand a lot of the viewers comments I don't understand how MJ and all of her nonsense isn't called out on all the bull"hit that comes out of her mouth.  She is turning out to be like GG.  Everyone is entitled to having a opinion

what happened to you? last season you were so nice and sweet, full of good energy, but this season you are just a mean girl trying to push away MJ and GG off the show. Im so disappointed. btw, calling your boyfriend daddy on national tv makes you look like his your pimp or something, very awkward!

Exactly what kind of energy do you plan to infuse into this diamond water? LOL You have become a joke. You're not spiritual, you're mean spirited. 

 

Go home, dig up your coins and go away--far, far away.

Oh and I totally agree with the person who said stop calling your bf daddy on tv! It's disgusting and I would rather cut my eyes and ear drums out then hear or see you with him again!!

It sickens me the way most (not necessarilly you) persians in their 30's and 40's live off their parents!!!!! Do these people ever grow up???

d106d

I think its great that you help your parents. But, why are you always looking for the easy way out concerning jobs? Your brainstorm idea of diamond water and now persian rap isnt realistic! Dont you have any type of education? Why not get a job you can actually have? Why do you persians live out of your means? Your poor mom who makes only 30, 000 a year is doing the best she can but your in some fantasy world where you want to make it big at once! It takes work, long work to reach that status. Ever hear you have to crawl before you walk? Do your parents a favor and stop trying to keep up with the Jones and accept what your qualified for!!!!

You were so much nicer last season. What happened? As far as having to justify yourself about the financial situation about your parents- as long as you are doing the right thing who cares what people think and say? People will always talk. Get back to your true self.

Asa, I don't know your age but I assume you are 30+. You act so very immature. I don't know if Bravo will even post this but I must say that when I saw who your boyfriend is that explained

alot of your behavior. This is what I have heard so far ,you are a Persian Pop Priestess. Persian, yes...Pop maybe if you still want to live in the 80's, Priestess, Are you a new religion or something. You believe people will buy diamond water that you bless. The world is waiting

for your new age persian music and all of this is going to make you rich.

There would be no harm to attempt ot forgive GG in your heart even if you are not around her.

This blog about your $$ and your parents really tops it all. Why would you tell the world how

you give $$ to your parents and take them on vacation. The comments on the blog were about your finances and feeling bad about your mom having to work so hard. Now you humiliate them more by saying you give them money. You are self centered and incapable of being anyon'e friend

I liked you last season, but it seems as though your true colors are coming out this season and unfortunately it isn't positive. You are incredibly rude, treat your friends badly - I can't imagine any of my friends having the nerve to call me a pill popper at a table full of people in front of a room full of strangers, shame on you. If you truly believed that MJ had a problem, a true friend would have had a private conversation with her about it, no cameras and no one else. You don't know why she takes meds, (she could have a legit medical issue) so its not your place to judge. As for GG, she was 100% wrong to get physical, but your ignorant behavior and words are what caused her to get so angry. No excuse for violence, but you need to take responsibility for your own actions regardless of being able to point the blame on her because she took it too far. If you were truly a  spiritual person, you would recognize the hurt that she has gone through that leads to that much anger built and at least allow her to apologize. Forgiveness is next to Godliness and you couldn't be further from that. I am tired of watching you, it seems as though this year you feel like you're one of the "cool" kids (with Reza and that ill-mannered Lilly) and are behaving like a bully. I hope you don't come back if you continue to behave like this. Also, I agree that its really gross to hear you calling your bf Daddy, if that's your nickname for him, please keep it off camera, it really sickens me to hear it

I cannot believe how very self-centered that you, Reza and this horrible Lily person are.  MJ was trying to share herself with you and you all basically mocked her.  In my opinion, you, Reza and Lily should walk-off into the Sunset together and leave MJ and GG alone. 

Pop Priestess of Pitiful is what you have been acting like.

Hello.First I want to say. I like and wish the best in life to all of the Shahs of sunset cast. It just happens to be that I personaly relate to you the most. My first time watching the show was this past wk end. season 2 episodes 1-6. Instantly my first impression of you was and still is a good one that.I hope you never allow negative opinions and circumstances in life to have a negative effect on you.Also I am curious to know the procedures you take when you bless your home and properity.And your procedures if you bless or spiritualy cleans yourself.

Loved you last season; cannot watch you another minute this season.  You have all shown your true colors - a bunch of Persian gavones!  Not wasting my time watching even another episode.  You became quite the mean girl, Asa.

You need to come down off your high horse. Treating people the way you treat MJ is not acceptable. You need to have one on one conversations. You are not a Persian Pop Priestest yet. So, until you are...keep your mouth shut and learn some manners, tact and social skills. As for GG, granted she did an awful thing but not showing up to allow her to apologize puts it back on you. You lack class.

Ugh u and your behavior in Mexico with mj disgusted me, who treats their friend that way and then acts like u have no idea what she's upset about! U are a horrible friend.

You are very mean. What happened to you? Last season you were real, down to heart, and full of life. Now you judge and bully others? For what? To hang out with Reza? Please go back to the old you. The one who seemed to care about people's feelings, could see different angles, and was compassionate. All friendship isn't always good friendship.

Asa, you are harsh and holier than thou. Please leave the show you add nothing positive. I feel like it is becoming the Asa hour and your not my favorite person on the show. You know karma what goes around comes back around.

If you looked like Lilly and could sing then I would believe in you as this persian pop princess ! but you do not have what it takes to do this. I find you a little bit sneaky in that you stir the pot when it comes to GG then act all innocence. _ You of all people know she is sensitive and likely to blow. You need to grow up also. Get a real job and stop talking smack.

This whole nonsense with Diamond water - what planet do you live on really !!!

and saying you dont want to put your father on Blast - well honey you just did.

Happy New Year Asa!  I personally don't believe for one moment, whether people believe you or not, that you owe ANYONE an explanation of how you come by your money or the fact that you have, and continue to, help your parents with their finances.  Honestly, who should give a shyt about how you conduct your business, and why should they judge?  Good grief.  It's apparent from what you wrote and the times I've witnessed you in their presence that you're a good daughter who genuinely cares for her parents and for that I commend you.  I believe you speak from the heart.  No matter what, you're cool with me and I LOVE how you carry yourself -- like a lady!  And as for your boyfriend, those of us who watch the show now know who he is, if some don't like him for you, that's their problem.  Makes me wonder, though, what the real reason behind it is that they don't.  Hmm....

Obviously you get paid for doing this show. If it isn't enough, stop complaining and get a real job like the rest of us.

Asa, I appreciate you clarifying your money situation. I'm sure you can see how we were all confused! I still don't understand how you make a living on a daily basis, your tenants can't provide all of your income, just cover the mortgage. If you just moved back into your house, where were you living before? If you are living in the house, you have no tenants there.

 

I appreciate that you want to lead a creative life, but selling 'Diamond Water' isn't going to cut it.

Asa, I like you on the show.  You seem very real and organic.  You work hard and play hard.  I have only one thing to say, calling your boyfriend "daddy" is not only creepy, it is also gross.  Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about you.  Here's to keeping it real!

Love You Asa! My g'daughter is a Persian princess alot like you....Her own person. I get it; You're great and real. Don't pay attention to the negativity. Diamonds are one of the most common mineral gems, not rare. I don't think Bravo understands Asa and the editing shows her in a bad light----Yet, she still shines. All the success for this year. Not feeling the boyfriend though.

Asa what is so cool about you is "everything!" I love how you carry yourself, behave and react to the idiots that surround you. Amazing!  ALl good is coming your way because you are an amazing person. 

 

P>S. when I am broke and only $100! in my bank account i can't even go to happy hour or barely put gas in my car. You have $500 as you saaid on the show and you go have a lavish dinner that is on you??? 

 

Continued success

 @sharon123 I totally agree with your assessment... MJ and GG is very honest and why does Aza need to judge them so harshly

 @piperbeau EXACTLY MJ is YOUR friend. You should have kept whatever she said to yoursself. I thought you all went to Mexico to have a good time not start drama. The two of you were WRONG

 @meredith.nelson.334 In my opinion Aza need to work much harder to develop a some real talent... as of now  her talent is lackluster at best...practice makes perfect...
