Lilly shared her thoughts on reality TV and her Shahs of Sunset experience in a new interview with K9 magazine. Lilly says it was an emotionally tolling experience for her. “Being on Shahs is an experience I will never forget. To be on a reality show on a national network as big as Bravo is isn’t easy. The entire world is watching, and judging you. It’s a very emotionally tolling experience, and difficult to handle, especially when you’re on an ensemble cast where fighting and drama is encouraged. I will forever cherish my time and experiences on the show, but am so happy to no longer be doing it!”
If you’ll recall, Ryan and Bravo began to promote #SHAHctober in September because season four of Shahs of Sunset was supposed to premiere October 13. That promotion went to hell when the post-production crew went on strike.
The rape rumor has been “out there” since and nobody cared enough to clear it up. Until now. Now that everyone’s lost interest and now that there’s a new premiere date on the calendar…. now GG can’t stomach the thought of such a terrible rumor to be “out there” about Mike.
Bravo announced this afternoon the return of several of our favorite reality shows – some with premiere dates and some with just a greenlight for a new season, but no date just yet.
Among the returning shows: Shahs of Sunset will come back for their fourth season on March 2nd, after getting pushed off of their initial premiere date last October, while Newlyweds: The First Year returns with four new couples on March 10th. Million Dollar Listing New York is back in action on April 8th and Southern Charm season 2 will kick off on March 9th.
Flipping Out (season 8) and The Real Housewives of Orange County (season 10) are a go, but no official date has been given just yet. Check out the listings below.
Lilly co-owns and designs for Have Faith Swimgerie and Want My Look. Also, her Ghalichi Glam brand includes Lilly Lashes (eyelashes), Lilly Ghalichi Collection by Avitan (fine jewerly), Lilly Hair (hair extensions), and Glampagne (champagne). Love her or hate her, you have to admire Lilly’s work ethic. She may not have enjoyed her time on Shahs of Sunset, but she definitely cashed in on the exposure.
“Such an honor to wake up to a @Forbes article on me,” Lilly shared with her fans and followers on Instagram. “As a woman that has busted her ass to make it in the business world, it is a surreal moment for me. I love and thank you all for continuing to support me through my journey. Thank you @Forbes @sarahpboyd for the amazing feature.”
The Shahs of Sunset star recently got some new boobs and has showed off her ample new cleavage in an instagram lingerie shot. “Thank you [Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants] for my new boobies!” GG gushed of the photo below. “I always keep it real about what’s fake. #NoShameInMyGame.”
Lilly shared the picture above on Instagram, adding, “I want to take a moment to say that I have in fact ended my relationship with my fiancé. He is a great man, and I wish him the best in life. After being with someone that lied to and cheated on me, it was so nice to be with someone as honest and loving as he was. For the first time in my life, I truly felt loved, appreciated, and respected. I will forever cherish our time together for those reasons, and so many more.”
SHAHctober came and went with Shahs of Sunset nowhere to be found due to a strike. The post-production crew was like, if you want us to watch and edit hours of raw footage of these people, you’re going to have to pay us a lot more money. I mean, can you blame them? I can barely stomach the edited version.
Bravo has yet to announce a new premiere date for season four despite the fact that the strike ended in October. Still, the cast is out and about, promoting the new season.
Lilly and Dhar got engaged on April Fool’s Day. On April 16, Lilly said she and her new fiance jumped right into planning not one, but two, huge weddings. Fast forward five months, it sounds like once that initial “OMG, we’re engaged! Must plan everything! Right now!” madness wore off, wedding planning got pushed to the back burner.
Oh well. I mean, if we don’t get to see Lilly plan the wedding and drive her glam squad crazy in the process, Coconut spin in circles down the aisle, or Lilly and Dhar say “I Do” to each other, does it matter? #kidding
