Lilly Ghalichi has been missed on Shahs of Sunset, but she’s moved on to bigger and better things. This week she sat down with her close friend Nik Richie to talk babies, business, and boobs (in the form of silicone, former co-stars and former loves).
Lilly opened up for the first time on what happened with Dhar Mann, the one-time fiance she was jet setting around the world with. Lilly admits she was duped big time. Nik says he tried to warn Lilly many times that this guy was shady and she readily admits that she fell for the scam hook, line and sinker. “I’m not that great of a judge of people, even though I’m an attorney and am supposed to be an excellent judge of character, I see the best in everyone. I’m so naive.”
Mike told Page Six that he is trying to stay “super busy,” adding, “This divorce was very hard on me – emotionally, physically, mentally. I spent many, many days, that turned into weeks and months, staying at home, reflecting on my life, and focusing on myself. A lot of thinking, reading, meditating, yoga.”
More wedding bells for reality TV? Shahs of Sunset cast member Mercedes “MJ” Javidis engaged..and as ‘luck’ would have it, smack in the middle of filming for the next season of the show.
About a week ago MJ posted the photo above on Instagram, likely hoping to stir up questions about the rock on THAT finger. This weekend she shared with E! that she is engaged to her “longtime” boyfriend Tommy Feight. “Yes, it’s true. I got engaged a few months ago. I’m ecstatic. I’m so happy.”
Earlier this month Jessica Parido, Mike Shouhed‘s wife of 8 months, filed for divorce. The reason: Mike’s incessant cheating! After discovering scandalous texts and messages from other women, Jessica learned Mike had been cheating throughout their entire relationship! About a year ago, Mike’s (alleged) former mistress, Emerald Wilson-Bey, came forward by writing a book, My Nights With The Shah: How Not To Date A Celebrity, which detailed her racy affair with the Shahs Of Sunset star! We’ve “sat” on this for a while, waiting for the right time to share the details and allegations from the book.
Emerald, a high-end real estate agent specializing in ‘pocket listings’ and relocation services, initially met Mike when she was on a work trip in Beverly Hills. Emerald imagined their passionate connection would translate into both sex and success! Detailing their steamy nights in the upper echelons of Beverly Hills, Emerald envisioned them becoming a power couple – instead she quickly realized Mike wasn’t nearly as single as he pretended to be. Funny how reality television exposes people’s private lives…
Below we share some of the highlights from Emerald’s salacious story, including Mike’s reaction to learning she was writing a book, how Bravo discovered her existence, and if Jessica knew!
I’m sure no one – like no one at all – is surprised to hear that after 8 months of wedded bliss distress Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido are divorcing. Who didn’t believe their love was solid and based on such a deep level of shared goals, commitment, and mutual respect?
Last week Jessica filed for divorce from the Shahs Of Sunset star citing irreconcilable differences, but obviously the real reason was Mike cheating on Jessica!
If you’ve been checking Facebook and Instagram for the last two weeks (who hasn’t?), your news feed has likely been flooded with countless pictures of precious children (most holding creative, bedazzled signs sharing teachers’ names and what grade they’re entering that are the envy of a multitude of Pinterest followers!) heading back to school. I’m sure that there are a bevy of you who have posted your own proud pics of kiddos growing up too fast and refusing to let you walk them into their classroom. I’ve enjoyed seeing every last one!
The back to school frenzy has been so intense this year, that the craze isn’t just for pre-K through high school students. I have one friend from college who has jokingly vocalized his disdain for the fad to the point where he has close to a hundred friends who are now tagging him in their back-to-school posts just to add more play to his notifications tab. He has retaliated by posting his 33rd first day of school and returning the favor–all in good fun. Of course, reality stars are getting into the game because, let’s be honest, they always LOVE a reason to hashtag yet another Instagram photo! Shahs of Sunsets’Mercedes “MJ” Javid posted her own variation…and called out haters with less than nice comments. #bts, y’all!
