How many Bravolebrities can you squeeze in at one event? Nearly all of them! The cast of Shahs of Sunset and part of the cast of The Real Housewives of New York were snapped on the blue carpet for the 2013 Bravo Upfront Presentations.
The itty-bitty, uptight reality star is reacting to what it was like to be on the popular show and talking her relationships with co-stars and the fans!
Lilly says she joined the show after running into Reza Farahan while drinking tea. "I was just sitting there having tea, and he was two tables away. At the time, I was in the market for a house, and he told me that he was a realtor. Our friendship began that way. He asked me if I would try out for the casting on the show and I decided to do it." Why do I not believe this story?
With that said, Andy Cohen kicks things off by asking the Shahs of Sunset why they refer to themselves as Persians and not Iranians. MJ acknowledges that Persian is technically not correct, adding, "But we do enjoy using the word Persian because it rolls off the tongue. It's pretty."
It could definitely be argued that Shahs of Sunset'sGolnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi did not get the fairest of shakes on the most recent season of the Bravo hit. The tiny spitfire was on the receiving end of some serious NFL action, and I'm not talking about professional football! After an altercation with cast mate Asa Soltan Rahmati, things seemed to spiral out of control for the group of friends, with everyone feeling forced to take sides. GG's romantic life was front and center as well, as her relationship with Omid Kalantari heated up and the pair became engaged off screen before calling it quits.
Thankfully, GG was kind enough to set the record straight in an interview with Reality Tea, and I think you'll find her answers to be honest and heartfelt. She certainly isn't one to mince words, and she dishes on everything from her status with Omid to her favorite part of the season. GG also discusses her goals for the future as well as what you didn't get to see on Shahs.
According to Reza's blog, he went to the season two reunion with the sole purpose of revealing "truths" and confronting MJ about her issues with alcohol and pills.
"Denial is truly a destructive emotion and regardless of where MJ is at, we all know and have witnessed her excessive use of drugs and alcohol," Rezablogged. "I'm at the end of my rope and don't want to see MJ overdose or even die, that would be unbearable. If I have to be the bad guy or the mean one, I'm happy with those titles as long as my friend is alive and well. That's all I want. I can't sit by and watch MJ self-destruct."
