Guess what, y'all! Shah's of Sunset'sLilly Ghalici is more than just a tiny pile of extensions and lip gloss and eyelashes. She's actually an extremely successful business woman and entrepreneur who plays an over-the-top "character" on Bravo's hit show. The lawyer turned reality star/bikini mogul is doing something right when it comes to her fashion start-up. I'm not even being sarcastic for once…Lilly is quite savvy.
In an interview with YFS Entrepreneur, the pint sized Lilly explains how she got to where she is now. She tells the site, "I was practicing law and I wasn’t really fulfilled. You know, it’s a job; it’s a 9 to 5 (more like a 7 to 8 when you’re first starting out as an associate). It just wasn’t really fulfilling. I’m an entrepreneur at heart so I decided I wanted to start my own business. I knew I wanted it to be in fashion, health or beauty. I had this great idea for bikinis so I just decided to do it and I jumped in headfirst. I figured I was going to give it my all; I’m not going to work part-time, do this part-time, so I just quit my job and I was working on it 24/7. It became my life, my passion…"
During her downtime from filming Shahs of Sunset,Lilly Ghalichi can usually be found on Twitter, hawking her swimgerie and fake lashes, and sharing selfies. Sometimes Tweeting and driving, even. But at other times of the day, we can find her at the Coffee Bean, unassumingly reading her Star magazine, ready for her closeup at any moment. I'm rolling my eyes hard over here.
Lilly was "caught" by the paps in full hair and makeup, giggling away with her tabloid (aimed so cameras could get a good shot at the cover, of course). Maybe Star isn't paying her. Perhaps she's just sucking up to the magazine in hopes of getting some press….
Getting papped every day happens to some celebrities, and many do call photographers and let them know where they'll be and also carry along any products that they are paid to show off. But the difference is that most of the pros at least make a good effort at not making it look set up. Clearly Lilly needs some lessons.
Well, well, well… it sounds like there are quite a few Shahs of Sunset haters in California. Color me not surprised.
According to L.A. Weekly, the Shahs of Sunset's "focus on its characters' over-the-top lifestyles" has annoyed many Iranian-Americans, causing the City of West Hollywood to pass "an official resolution, condemning it."
One star, Asa Soltan Rahmati, isn't fazed. "They hated it, but they watched it every week, they knew ever detail," said Asa. "I think, secretly, they loved it."
While the festivities took place at Mohamed's $55 million mansion, the guests weren't in major party mode because the alcohol ran dry. What? The horror! The disasters didn't end there though. Say it isn't so!
