This was a good week for our favorite reality shows! It seems that everyone is getting back into the swing of 2013, and with a routine comes our favorite old habits…watching some of the most fantastically trashy television series known to man.
Lilly Ghalichiis the winner of our Idiot Of The Day award (that's our family-friendly version of the award's name).
This Shahs of Sunset star raised our hopes in episode one of season 2, making us believe she was going to be all sorts of fabulous fun. By episodes 2, 3, 4 and on, we realized that she was a snotty mean girl who thinks way too highly of herself and feels better when she's looking down her nose at fatties, poor people and the like. Her antics today just help solidify why she's a vapid twit who fits right in the world of reality TV (and we're not talkin' the fun parts of reality TV's ridiculousness).
This is what set us off on a Lilly rant:

Back when MJ was just 18, she was working as a teller at the Home Savings Bank in Beverly Hills and got caught up in a case of fraud and spent a month in prison for her part in the crime. The case details are outlined in court documents that were submitted when MJ was requesting her real estate license.
Reza Farahan and his two favorite Persian Princesses, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Lilly Ghalichi, hit the red carpet with a slew of other reality TV stars on Monday. Yesterday was Day 2 of NBCUniversal's '2013 Winter TCA Tour', held at the Langham Hotel.
Last week on Shahs of Sunset, Mike Shouheddecided that he and his friends need a drama-free (but still drunken) weekend in Cabo San Lucas. Sounds lovely.. and bound to go horribly wrong.
First, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Reza Farahan promote themselves to king and queen of the group and act all That '70s Show funky crazy in the car. Asa better put her hands on the wheel of her Mercedes-Benz or she's going to have to demolish her house to afford a new car. #brokepeopleproblems Speaking of Asa's broke ass, she decides that this is the year of the Persian Pop Priestess, vowing to finally make money with her music. Please forgive me if I don't hold my breath.
Mercedes "MJ" Javid organizes a lunch date between Asa and Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi. Before Asa arrives, GG and MJ order drinks and appetizers. GG orders cheese fries, hummus with pita chips, the triple carne asada tacos, and a cocktail. Goodness gracious! Where does she put it all?
Once they're cocktailed up, GG asks MJ why she excluded her – instead of Asa – from her birthday party. MJ is surprised that GG even has to ask, saying, "You were the one who got physically violent with Asa. What about the fact that she doesn't feel physically safe?" GG tells MJ that she respects her decision, promises to get therapy, and hopes the upcoming trip to Cabo allows her the opportunity to mend broken relationships. Foreshadowing….
Golnesa "GG" GharachedaghiandAsa Soltan Rahmatihave had several nasty fights on season two ofShahs of Sunset. Already – we're only five episodes in! While we all know most reality TV stories are well behind "real time," it doesn't sound like Asa and GG have resolved their issues. With Twitter as her audience, GG has been bashing Asa left and right. Also, Lilly Ghalichi - by popular demand – recently shared a picture of herself wearing almost no makeup!
GG's fans rallied around her, tweeting, "Yay! She's a phony anyway your baby would be way cuter" and "She only got pregnant to become relevant again, that ho lost the spotlight to better people!"
While GG didn't mention any names, one of her followers assumed Lilly. "@GolnesaGG, you just put @LillyGhalichi on blast! I do think she wants to be like Kim K too, but she don't need a baby, she's has Coconut!" GG was quick to set her straight, tweeting, "I wasn't talking about Lilly. And I said that I want to get pregnant."

Either way, Lilly and Mercedes "MJ" Javid are bringing the drama, so don't expect the season 2 newcomer to go away anytime soon. This week on Shahs of Sunset, Lilly and MJ managed to insult one another without even sharing a scene. In Bravo's eyes… that's talent… and job security.
When Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi wanted to gossip about Lilly, MJ implied that talking about Lilly wasn't worth her time. On the show, she said, "In about five minutes, Lilly is going to get shipped back to the welfare line she was standing in before she decided to invade my life."
In response to MJ's jab, Lillysaid, "If I had made this comment about MJ, it would be a HUGE deal that the skinny rich girl is picking on the chubby middle class girl. But, the other way around people find it acceptable? Double standard. Either way, MJ, I could buy your whole life and donate it to charity for fun if I wanted to, let's be real. The fact that I am self-made is something I am extremely proud of; you should pay attention and learn a few things from me."
This week's episode starts with GG and Omid Kalantari out on a date. While GG munches on a big sausage, Omid admits that he has been partying with her friends without her. GG takes it well. GG says that her friends could combine their money, diamonds, houses, etc. and still not have enough money to buy any class, adding, "They call themselves classy… they put the ass in class."
Omid goes on to tell GG that her friends told him that he's delicious and well-behaved when he's not around GG. To the camera, GG says, "I'm shocked. For real. Take the botox away, and I'm shocked." Not that much later, GG learns more about what went down between MJ and Lilly Ghalichi / Reza at the bar, and she says the night would have gotten "so dirty" if she had been there. Yet, she's shocked to hear that her friends don't want to party with her.
Someone needs to tell GG: when life gets tough, the saying is "just keep swimming" not "just keep drinking."
