According to Glamour Magazine, designer and model Lilly Ghalichi will be joining the cast! And she is quite the impressive package. Lily describes herself as “a Persian Barbie on the outside, but…with intelligence and drive on the inside.” She's a licesened attorney that left the 9-5 world to become a swimsuit designer behind the line Have Faith Swimgerie and lifestyle blogger with a tell-all twist. She's also known for her glamour girl style!
The Shahs of Sunset is set to return in December and they've shed some pounds – and I'm not just talking about MJ's trimmed down frame. It seems that wannabe-playah Sammy Younai is not returning for season 2, according to Tamara Tattles!
I was completely into Shahs from episode one – the glitzy getaways, the drunken Vegas romps, the tazer guns and rage issues, but I just could NOT warm up to Sammy. He came across as fake and he tried too hard to be interesting. I would've had more respect if he hadn't acted so smarmy and been a little more humble. (Remember that blind date where he thought he was too good for the hot girl?)
What do you get when you mix Lisa Vanderpump‘s best buddy Mohamed Hadid and the Shahs of Sunset’sSammy Younai? Why a $58 million mansion, of course! The home was developed by Mohamed and featured on the first season of Shahs when he asked Sammy to oversee construction while he was out of town. According to jewcy.com, the monstrosity boasts an indoor pool that smells like lemons and a pantry within the pantry. I think it’s safe to say that I am way too poor to even be writing about this!

Last week two time loser in television love and all around loser Brad Womack slammed his ex-fiance Emily Maynard; saying he “dodged a bullet” with her and had no plans to watch her look for love again on The Bachelorette. Well, Emily is a nice person and speaking to Access Hollywood, she genuinely believes Brad didn’t mean to sound so harsh. OK – is it possible for Emily to, like, ever get upset?
“At first, my feelings were really hurt, because we left everything very civil and I’ve never said a bad word about him,” Emily confessed. “But, knowing Brad, he didn’t mean it that way. That’s what I want to say,” she added.
As for how things went for her this season, Emily said she had serious reservations about kissing so many different guys as The Bachelorette, but whaddaya gonna do?
Reza Farahanwants us to know that not all reality TV is scripted and “steered” by the powers-that-be. (aka Ryan Seacrest).
TheShahs of Sunset star says that he and his fellow cast mates are the real deal. And unlike some of those others famewhores on the air, you will find this gang together even when they’re not filming. “It’s not a reality show based on characters that were brought together randomly — I had dinner with GG last night, I talk to Mike everyday, MJ and Sammy are in Coachella for a music festival together right now.”
Reza says that no story lines are contrived or forced on them. You know, it was their own decision to gift each other with colonics and film it for the world to see (and be traumatized by). “Ryan would call, email, text, check in but it was just to make sure we were happy, make sure we were OK, make sure that whatever feedback, whether positive or negative that we were OK with it. But it was never to steer us. There’s no steering.”
Also not fake (besides Reza’s pornstache)? The intimate details of his life. He is committed to spreading his fabulousness to all the land and in the only way he knows how: through brutal honesty and an “all or nothing” attitude. “You can’t have expectations of wanting to bring about change in your community if you have one foot in and one foot out…. There’s so much homophobia and it was either: not do it, or if I was going to do it, I was going to put it all out there. And that’s what I did.”
Reza is okay with putting it all out there, but he said that his cast mates have a lot of regret over things they did or said on camera, but he didn’t dish any details. Perhaps
Reza is hoping that by sharing their lives, they’ll do some good to break down some of the misunderstandings out there about Persians in general. “We’re humanizing a group of people that have been characterized and misrepresented as terrorists. If I’m a hard-working gay man who’s proud of himself and his family supports him, I want to showcase that instead of what’s been showcased since I got to this country, which is that we’re terrorists, we all have camels in our driveways and we all own an Uzi, all of which are not true.”
Even though he’s wanting to bring some change and give viewers a new perspective on Persians, he also isn’t the spokesperson for the entire community. “At the end of the day we’re not trying to represent anything other than ourselves. I wasn’t elected by the Persian House of Representatives to represent my people and this is not a documentary on the plight of the Persian people. This is about six fun, fabulous people living in L.A., period.”
After seeing themselves in the six season one episodes, I’m dying to see how they’ll behave in season two since some of them have regrets. Hopefully it doesn’t get boring!
Are you ready for more mustaches, diamond water, taser guns, parties and cat fighting? Bravo just announced that it has officially renewed Shahs of Sunset for a second season!
The news isn’t too shocking since the ratings were increasing with each one of the six episodes. The season finale was the most watched, with 1.5 million viewers, which was a 20% increase over the previous week’s show.
After just six weeks on the air, we bid farewell to the Shahs of Sunset! Last night’s episode had its fair share of personal growth, bad blind dates, and varied levels of douchiness. (We’re looking at you, Sammy Younai)
Mike Shouhed and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi head out together for a morning workout. GG is apparently new to this exercise thing and leaves all of her jewelry on while attempting an intense workout. When she’s finished, GG looks a little sweaty in her (nearly falling off every three seconds) jogging pants, yet her eye makeup is perfectly in tact.
Mike lets GG know that the two of them will never get together, despite the fact that he thinks she’d be a great catch for someone (once she gets her anger issues in check). She’s determined to learn how to chill out and let things slide. GG reveals that she hasn’t been on a date in five years.
Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid spend some time talking about their recent trip to NYC to see Reza’s dad. Reza says the situation with his dad has helped him to grow and he isn’t taking crap from anyone. Reza decides that since he’s found peace with his father, MJ should confront her mom, Vida. Reza shares that MJ’s mom has treated her terribly the entire time that he’s known her and even goes so far as to say that he doesn’t think Vida loves MJ. MJ doesn’t take that last bit very well and is irritated with Reza’s opinion. I was feeling Reza’s friendship for MJ until he started ripping on Vida for constantly being critical of MJ’s weight and more. Just two episodes ago MJ told us that Reza has given her hell about her weight for YEARS. Pot meet kettle.
Bravo needs to get a camera crew over to the home of Sammy Younai’s parents because some good reality TV is unfolding – no script necessary! Sammy Tweeted earlier tonight that people are threatening his folks and all because of Reza Farahan’s sexual orientation.
Sammy took his outrage to Twitter and is hoping that someone might be able to help solve the mystery of who the culprits are.
“2psycho’s went to my parents home last night and threaten them, if anyone knows anything please let me know. A police report, cops, cyber search of twitter and face book. Crazy f*****s where pissed I was friends with a gay guy.”
Speaking of Reza, he’s been posting some hilarious “Reza Rants” videos on his YouTube channel. Even though “so you want me to be your gay bestie” is one of my favorites, he did share a serious message for the “It Gets Better” initiative that’s worth a look. Reza says that as a young man he felt like he wasn’t “made right”, but something his mom did changed his whole world. You can see the video below.
Sunday night on WWHL, Mercedes “MJ” Javid said that fame is going to Reza’s head. Reza does seem to be the breakout star of the show, but the entire cast is finding a way to cash in like a Kardashian. Asa Rahmati has been pimping out her music, Reza is running with the rockstar status of his mustache (it has its own Twitter account!), and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi is working on a line of hair extensions and designing clothes, but not for ants or ugly people!
GG says that she’s trying to branch out, maybe enough so that she doesn’t have to rely on dad for a paycheck anymore! “I’m trying to really make something of myself.” Golnesa says that she’s not trying to be the next Kim Kardashian, but she’s up for new opportunities: “Whatever presents itself, if it seems safe like ‘Shahs of Sunset’ which wasn’t exploiting us, it was just fun, I’d be (up for it).”
So far there’s no word on a second season being greenlit, but the first “season” (aka six episdes) did so well that I can’t imagine Bravo not going ahead with it. GG says that she doesn’t mind the way she was portrayed in these intro episodes. “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and I feel like that comes with the territory. I could have been a nun and they would have knocked me for being a nun.”
Nuns don’t carry 8″ blades and taser guns. Just sayin’.
