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."
Lilly Ghalichi may not have made any genuine friends on Shahs of Sunset, but life is so grand for Lilly, she's not crying a river over it. Lilly celebrated her 31st birthday on Wednesday and her fianceDhar Mann helped to make it a spectacular day.
While Reza Farahan hung out at a caviar vending machine somewhere in the valley, Lilly was squealing with delight as she unwrapped her $500,000 Rolls Royce Wraith from Dhar outside Mastro's restaurant in Beverly Hills. Lilly was flooded with fabulous gifts from friends and family – and even from the real star of Shahs of Sunset, Coconut Circles! Coconut bought her mommy two pairs of Louboutins that likely cost more than the gold coins buried outside Asa's house or MJ's yearly budget for Ambien and wine.
Lilly gushed on Twitter, "Thank you for the most incredible birthday jet_set_life and to all my beautiful friends and family."
Check out the photos below of her gifts and dinner party – including a cake that featured Lilly sitting on top of the world.
Lilly and Dhar travel the world. Dhar dreams of kids. Lilly dreams of diamonds. Dharproposes to Lilly, thankfully with a HUGE diamond, and Dhar and Lilly plan a wedding. The only not-so-classic part of this story is, this all happens in less than three months.
Three days, three months, or three years, Lilly insists it doesn't matter. "When you now, you know," she says. "You can know someone for ten years and still not be sure if they're the one for you, and you can know someone for ten days and know you want to spend the rest of your life with them."
Lilly adds, "Dhar is so incredible, I feel like the luckiest girl to have him."
Season four of Shahs of Sunset is a go – but whether Lilly Ghalichi, last season's outcast, will return remains to be seen. Maybe she will score her own show to feature her bubbly personality and successful business, Have Faith Swimgerie. Or maybe Lilly and her fiance, Dhar Mann, will star in a show about medical marijuana. I'm not kidding.
Turns out Dhar, who recently proposed to Lilly with a 15-carat diamond after only two months of dating, wants to be a reality TV star. In 2011, he shared, "I personally have always wanted a reality show cause I just think that my life is somewhat appealing to watch." Dhar pitched Hempire, a reality show focused on his personal life and his marijuana business, weGrow.
Over the weekend,Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupaattended The Yellow Party hosted by Joanna's charity Angels For Animal Rescue, a group dedicated to animals in need of rescue and forever homes, and Racing for Cancer.
Joanna's sister Marta Krupa, IndyCar racer Marco Andretti, and Angels for Animal Rescue's co-founder Gabi Gutierrez also attended. Peek below for a few Instagram pictures from the sunshiny charity event.
The pear-shaped diamond is so crazy big we thought it was an April Fool's day joke. We weren't the only ones, so Lily came back to add, "For those of you that think it's an April Fool's joke, so did at first I when Dhar got on one knee!! That was his whole plan, he's so funny, romantic, and crazy like that."
