Shahs of Sunset star Lilly Ghalichi recently gave us a glimpse into a very different side of herself. Known as the 'Persian Barbie' because of her over-the-top hair and make-up she normally sports, Lilly recently joined the bevy of celebrities posting make-up-free selfies.
In the Instagram post, she looks almost unrecognizable. The reality star is beautiful in the shot, but much different than we normally see her. Even on Shahs when her glam squad is there to get her ready — it takes a village — her make-up is usually already on. Or at least I cannot think of a time she was filmed without make-up. Maybe it was in her contract.
So what spurred Lilly to post the intimate photo? Not what you think.
"Right before I jumped – and my heart was beating out of my chest – I yelled to Jessica, 'I love you! Will you marry me?'" shared Mike. She yelled yes, then they jumped out of the plane! "I had a picnic with champagne and a 4-carat ring waiting. She kept saying, 'I'm going to be your wife.' It all worked out perfectly."
Jessica shared the above picture on Instagram, adding, "After crying my eyes out for an hour, makeup smeared all over my face, eyelashes dangling, this is the BEST picture we have ever taken!!!!!"
Foot-in-mouth mishaps? Yes, but she seems like a good person, which is way more than we can say about most of her Shahs of Sunset co-stars. Over-the-top and self-obsessed? Well, she's definitely a girly girl, but she owns it.
Four things Lilly loves more than life itself are her family, Coconut, her fiance, and her Ghalichi Glam style. I'm quite smitten with Coconut myself. As for her style, Lilly knows what she likes, isn't afraid to flaunt it, and refuses to apologize for it. I will take that over the fake and pretentious that is Asa Soltan Rahmati any day of the week. Persian Pop Priestess? Um, Pass!
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Marisa Zanuck and Million Dollar Listing New York star Ryan Serhant are Nest Seekers agents.
"Nest Seekers is excited to have yet another celebrity broker in its roster and welcomes Shouhed's expertise in the real estate market," per the press release. "His knowledge, experience, and vibrant energy will be beneficial to the company's new Beverly Hills office."
The reality (current and former) stars flocked to Hollywood last night for OK! Magazine's So Sexy party.
Alexis Bellino ventured out with hubby Jim, as did her fellow ex-costar of RHOC, Gretchen Rossi. At the event Gretchen was seen cozied up to current OC Housewife Lizzie Rovsek and her husband Christian. Gretchen must've wanted to compare notes on swimsuit empires with Lizzie.
A few more photos of our favorite (and really not so favorite) reality stars are trickling in this morning. Cameras caught a few of the stars as they arrived at the hotel earlier in the day and several of them as they left their hotel last night to head to the event.
The stars in attendance are usually a sign of who might be coming back for the next season and who isn't. For instance, I think it's pretty clear that Lilly Ghalichi won't be returning to Shahs of Sunsetnext season since her co-stars were all on hand last night and she's back in L.A. That, coupled with the fact that she has had almost no interaction with them since the reunion pretty much says it all. #sadface
NeNe Leakes is another example. Rumors were swirling about her status. Was she fired? Did she quit? Was she downgraded? Sources came out of the woodwork, cryptic Tweets were sent out to tease the fans, and then she turns up for the presentation, which pretty much means she was invited back for another season of Atlanta. But no sign of Kenya Moore or Porsha Stewart or Phaedra Parks – all so that we can be kept guessing for a little while longer what Bravo decided to do about those messes.
This week is the NBC/Bravo upfront presentations and therefore a slew of Bravolebrities have descended on NYC. There's a lot of co-mingling of Bravo stars going on as they attend parties and dinners together. Apparently there's a lot of hooking up going on, too! Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Million Dollar Listing New York star Luis D. Ortiz were caught kissing last night!
Million Dollar Listing L.A. star Josh Altman was the sneaky photographer who snapped this photo of GG and Luis getting friendly at dinner. Josh shared the pic on Facebook, Wow! "Wow! Sitting having drinks in NYC and just saw this. @luisdortiz and @gg_golnesa having a @bravotv moment."
