EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Shahs Of Sunset’s Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi Talks Show Drama, Friendships, And Her Future In Reality TV


It could definitely be argued that Shahs of Sunset's Golnesa "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
GG's answers are refreshing, to say the least.  She's not afraid to admit her wrong-doing, and she is honest about her faults…when does that ever happen with reality stars?  Read on to see what GG has to say about her relationships with her cast members and what she wishes viewers had gotten to see more of on season two!
What is one thing you'd like your fans to know about you that they may not already?
I'm not this crazy bitch who goes around attacking people all the time. I have my moments, but for the most part I am a very caring, compassionate person. I just sometimes loose my shit.
Do you feel you were portrayed fairly this season?  What is one thing you wish had been shown but wasn't?
This was a very difficult season for me. I feel like several of the other cast members used me to make their own situations more interesting for viewers. I wish the audience could see more of the calm, reasonable GG
What is your relationship with Omid currently?
Omid and I will always be very close friends. We are very much alike and understand each other. He has been a great friend to me, and I hope I have been one to him too.
Do you think that you will ever be able to have a friendship with Asa?
That's her decision. She has treated me with such disrespect and hostility that I think it would take a lot for us to be friends. When I wrongly started to get physical with her, that took the attention away from her bad behavior and made me look like the villain. The truth is we were both wrong in different ways.
What is your favorite memory from the season?  Do you have any regrets about it?
My favorite memory would be the successful launch of GGs Extensions  and receiving respect and a hug from my sister. I don't believe in regrets so I have none. But its definitely not OK to physically assault someone so I'm truly working on my anger.
How are things going with your line of extensions?
Things are going amazing with GG's Extensions. We have gotten a tremendous response to the product line and it's very exciting to see something like that come together. We took the product to meet with fashion and beauty editors in New York and it was very well received.
Would you be interested in doing a spin-off?  If so, what would you envision your story line to be like?
I think it's all about what keeps audiences engaged and coming back every week. 
Who do you think is the biggest pot stirrer on the show?
I think a lot of people would say me, and that may be true at times. I think Reza [Farahan] has a way of getting people worked up and upset.
What were you most surprised to see said about you behind your back while watching this season?
The worst thing that I heard being said behind my back was when Asa said there is nothing human about me. For someone who claims to be spiritual and having studied psychology, that comment was a true definition of her character and class.
What can we expect from the second half of the reunion?  Can you give us any teasers or any funny behind the scenes moments from the first half?
You'll have to watch for yourself, but I can tell you it's even crazier than the first part!
Where do you see yourself in five years? Do you think it will include reality TV? 
I greatly admire many of the women who started out in reality television and went on to build successful businesses. If I had my dream, I would have my own little empire of products, books and shows. I also want to build the associations I have with several charitable organizations. 
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Watching The Housewives!!
And there you have it, folks!  We here at Reality Tea greatly appreciate GG for taking the time to answer our questions, and I, for one, can't wait for the second half of the Shahs of Sunset reunion this Sunday on Bravo!!
