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.”
The highlights – OK, lowlights, are below. And no, we’re not bullying Brandi by PULLING direct quotes from her so don’t try it. It’s not our fault her truth cannons sometimes self-detonate!
First of all Nik is so freaking cheesy. He sucks up to Brandi hardcore and she takes the bait. Then they rehash every. single. dramatic moment of Brandi’s life, but I do like Nik’s voice and he asks insightful questions.
Following the taping, Dr. Jenn tweeted, “All I am going to say is that last night’s Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn reunion was major. It airs September 3rd and it will not disappoint.” Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden, Nik Richie and Shayne Lamas, and JoJo and Tiny Hailey participated in the reunion as well, but all of the gossip surrounding the taping is about the Teen Mom stars.
If you have ever wondered what happened to your favorite couples, or the biggest train wreck couples, from Couples Therapy, then I have good news for you! VH1 recently announced that a Couples Therapy reunion is in the works!
“Couples Therapy is taping a special 5-season All-Star Reunion, featuring appearances by some of the most memorable couples from the entire history of the series LIVE onstage before a studio audience,” revealed VH1. “Dr. Jenn Berman will serve as host and moderator for this hi-octane reunion, showing highlights of all the most memorable moments from the series and finding out what has happened with everyone since their experience in Couples Therapy. It will be explosive, entertaining, and a night to remember!”
Shayne revealed in a statement today that the child she was carrying was a boy. "In loving memory of my son, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie," and urged fans to donate blood, "To everyone out there, please donate blood. You can save a life like mine."
The formerCouples Therapy star also thanked fans for their love and support and reassured them that despite a Valentine's Day setback, she is on the path to recovery. "Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I've cried reading the expression of generosity and warmth from everyone," Shayneshared with Us Weekly. "I'm out of ICU at Mission Viejo Hospital. I cannot thank the medical staff here enough for not giving up on me."
The former Couples Therapy star was rushed to the hospital after she collapsed where an emergency surgery was performed to save her life.
"I'm still working from the ICU. This has been the toughest week of my life, but my love for Shayne Lamas has grown tremendously," husband Nik Richie shared of Shayne's condition. "My wife is a true fighter. Her heart gave out on Valentine's Day and we had to start the rehabilitation process all over again."
On Sunday at 7:35 pm the paramedics were called to Shayne's Orange County home after she collapsed. She was rushed to the hospital, with Nik by her side, where doctors discovered internal bleeding around her uterus and determined emergency surgery was needed to discover the cause of the bleeding.
Unfortunately during the surgery Shayne's unborn baby was lost in the process, however doctors are "optimistic about her recovery" says TMZ.
Courtney stepped out last week with producer and manager David Weintraub, just after announcing that she's working on her own reality show, as well as her singing career. She's wearing more clothes than usual and you can't see it, but she's wearing a pair of shoes that aren't her beige ones!
Most sites report that the two were on a blind date after David requested to be set up on the date with Courtney. I'm wondering if it's more of a business dinner, though. Courtney is working on several projects and David is responsible for producing the type of shows she'll wind up on. David's producer resume includes assisting with shows like Sober House, Celebrity Rehab, Sex Rehab, Living with Kimberly Stewart, and Sons of Hollywood.
David also manages (or did manage) celebrities like Danielle Staub, Shayne Lamas and husband Nik Richie, Angelina Pivarnick, Tareq Salahi and Levi Johnston. My guess is Courtney's his latest client, but maybe they're keeping it quiet for Doug's sake right now? Just a hunch.
