Nadine discusses Persian moms and shopping, Omid's hair feather, and the inner monolgues of a Shah.

This episode was by far my favorite of the season. And every week I keep thinking it can't get more dramatic, but somehow our Persians top themselves. There was therapy, there was redemption, there was fighting. Our two show villains GG and Vida even came around. . .well, sort of. But baby steps are still considered steps.

I have to be honest, for the first time in a long time I felt for GG. She made the effort to apologize to Reza, to go to therapy (which was very Sybilesque), and to make up with Asa (until she actually saw her). But like I said, baby steps. Before moving on to the mother of all dinners, I have to comment on a few things.

First, let’s start at the Lilly/GG pedicure date. I couldn't help but laugh because GG and Lilly almost have no other choice other than to hang out with each other because no one else will. As the girls got their toes done, they bonded over all of the cosmetic work they've had done. GG told Lilly she's had a nose job, her gums lightened and gets Botox all the time. I didn't even know gum lightening existed. I assume it's somewhere in-between anal bleaching and Michael Jackson skin lightening. And Botox? That doesn’t even count as "work." That’s just a gateway drug in Beverly Hills plastic surgery centers.

I’m glad that Lilly feels like she can be friends with GG because she’s "skinny and pretty." I’ll keep that in mind for when I meet Lilly. I'm sure I won’t meet the height and weight requirement to be her friend, but I’ll keep you posted.
