What is with these Bravo shows and all of the accusations about people faking serious illnesses? It is just way too much to handle. Now, Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan is accusing Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi of lying about Rheumatoid Arthritis.

It’s hard to know what to believe on these reality TV shows, but you know how GG gets. She is popping off about these accusations. Not only that, but GG’s boy Shervin Roohparvar is stepping up to defend his friend against the hate.


Reza loves to stir shit up for attention and I’m assuming he watches the other shows on Bravo, so I feel like he borrowed this story line to get attention and discredit GG. Just because GG parties all the time and doesn’t have a real job (just like the rest of the cast), that doesn’t mean that she does not have a chronic illness. Sure, this is not the way she should be behaving, but it does not necessarily discredit her when she talks about having RA.

GG took to Instagram to defend herself. She posted a photo of her hand with a pretty lengthy caption: “Oh and I suppose this tattoo I’ve had for years is fake too? RA is not something I use for attention or a storyline for the show… it is the story of the life I’ve been living for the last 6 years and the disease I will have until I can (hopefully) one day go into remission. But I’m grateful for the doubters. It’s because of y’all that more people now know about RA! I love all of my warriors and supporters. #F-ckRA #bRAveWARRIOR.” 

Although GG‘s post was full of passion, it did not really provide any proof in regard to the severity of her illness. I’m not really sure what a tattoo has to do with whether or not she has RA, no matter what it says, but I’m sure that GG is just very upset and trying to defend herself.

GG provided “proof” in another Instagram post that included a photo of a prescription bottle with another super long caption: “Bring on the nausea! It’s M-day… To my fellow warriors y’all know how this sh*t feels. But, the relief that I’ve been getting from Rituxan and Methotrexate is worth the nausea. Thank you all for the love and support and believe me I read your messages. I’m proud of all of you for your strength. We are in this together. And yes, I take prescription folic acid. #F-ckRA #bRAveWARRIOR”

Even though Shervin flipped out at GG about her habits in the most recent Shahs of Sunset episode, he maintains that he was only trying to be a good friend. In an interview with Bravo’s Daily Dish, Shervin said, “Sometimes you have somebody’s back and they don’t see it. So your job just becomes double hard and a lot of times, sometimes you got to tell your friend something they don’t want to hear. But that’s what makes you a real friend and I legitimately care about her.” I don’t feel like Shervin was questioning GG’s medical issues, but that he just wanted her to get her shit together and take better care of herself so she can finally feel better.

Shervin asserts that he believes GG about her medical troubles and that he has witnessed her struggles first hand: “I was there for her surgery because of the scar tissue had to come out because she couldn’t close her fist anymore.”

So what does he think about Reza coming for GG over and over again about her RA diagnosis? Shervin said, “So it’s a very difficult thing she’s going through. I think that she doesn’t necessarily exaggerate; I think that she is sitting in doctor’s office hearing a bunch of words and terminology that she doesn’t necessarily know and then she takes these little power words like ‘radiation,’ ‘chemotherapy,’ and she’s scared of them. And they’re the ones that are most prevalent in her mind when she thinks back and that’s what she shares.” 

He then clarified the type of treatment GG has gone through so far. “What she’s had is, it’s similar to chemotherapy. It’s a drug that’s used in conjunction with chemotherapy during chemotherapy.” So is GG exaggerating her illness, or is she just not communicating effectively?
