Last week model Niki Ghazian fired off a letter to Bravo demanding that they stop using the term "Persian Barbie" when referring to new Shahs of Sunset cast member Lilly Ghalichi, claiming that the moniker belonged to her already.
Producers fired back, stating the obvious (to everyone except Niki): that nobody OWNS "barbie anything" except for Mattel. "Any claim that Ms. Ghazian has acquired any property rights to a term that is a basic derivative of "Barbie" (i.e. "Persian Barbie") is unsound and not defensible."
