It's hard to imagine that the delightfully kitchy Shahs of Sunset we fell in love with last year is the same show this year. I guess when the famewhoring bug bites you all hell breaks loose! Asa Soultan Rahmati has been publicly admitting her money struggles, her identity struggles (to be a Persian Pop Preistess or not?), her family struggles, and her friendship woes. One thing she's been completely tight-lipped about, however, is her love life!
But Tamara Tattles has discovered that Asa is very much part of a relationship that she is choosing not to air on the show because her beau is of very famous lineage! And because she doesn't want reality TV drama negatively affecting their coupledom.
Smart girl, that one, but isn't that kinda like having your cake and eating it too? You want your life on TV, but not your real-real life?

So yes, Asa is in a serious relationship with… Jermaine Jackson Jr! As in Michael Jackson's nephew! And he no want to be on Bravo. For good reason.
According to Tamara the two met at Beverly Hills High School. Even though Asa's parents weren't rich, as she told us last season, they moved to a small apartment in the school district so she could attend one of the nation's best public high schools – and use all her learnings to become a pop sensation!
After graduation the two lost touch and then reconnected about two years ago and things have been going strong ever since. Another bit of tea about Asa? The house she lives in with $30k coins in the floor she built with an ex-boyfriend who also wanted NO part in the Bravo machine!
Apparently Asa isn't hiding her relationship from anyone but the cameras. She and Jermaine have met each other's families and are serious enough to consider marriage. And Asa did bring Jermaine as her date to Andy Cohen's book release party which was held at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant SUR!
And he was also her date to the Bravo Upfront Awards. Asa told Tamara that we may catch a glimpse of Jermaine in an upcoming episode or two of Shahs, but don't expect their relationship to be front and center in the storyline.
Moving on, new Shahs star Lilly Ghalichi is convinced everyone the world over is jealous of her fabulous. And it takes a lot to make Lilly fabulous. Like plastic surgery. And she's finally admitting she may have had a few tweaks. You mean…. those boobs aren't real?!
Taking to her personal blog, Lilly clears up what she has and hasn't done to her body. I frankly am more concerned about her hair…
"Whether or not I’ve had plastic surgery seems to be EVERYONE’S biggest question in life about me," she writes. "I think that plastic surgery is a very personal decision, and it is tacky to ask someone you don’t know about it."
So because she recognizes she's chosen to put herself on TV, Lilly accepts that people are curious about her humanized blow-up doll appearance!
"I have nothing to hide, nor am I embarrassed of anything I have ever done in my life, therefore I’m here to dish all of the details first hand!"
"I also do not believe in lying to your fans (or lying in general). SO many celebrities out there get all sorts of plastic surgery and claim “they have never had any” (uh hum Kim K). I think that sets a poor example for young girls." Well – I have to agree with her here!
Apparently one reason Lilly is admitting to what she's um… changed is for the children! "Young girls look up to celebrities, and if a celebrity claims they have never had any plastic surgery when they are sporting a perfect little nose, or large breasts, it may make young girls feel inferior if they don’t have those same perfect features. By all means I am not advocating young girls or anyone to get plastic surgery."
What HAS Lilly done?
1. Breast Augmentation (more than once, I’ve had numerous complications)
2. Rhinoplasty (once)
Lilly says she doesn't plan on any other procedures right now and admits she had her nips and tucks done at a young age when she was "insecure" about her looks.
