Has Lilly Ghalichi been dropped from the cast of "Shahs of Sunset" already? The fact that she didn't attend a major TV event along with the rest of her co-stars seems to indicate that viewers won't see her next season.
On Thursday, May 15, the NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Upfront presentation, in which the company previews the next season's shows to advertisers, took place in New York City. The NBCUniversal Cable portfolio includes Bravo and as a result many celebrities from Bravo's shows were in attendance. All of the "Shahs of Sunset" stars were there except for Lilly.
One of the show's most outspoken stars, Reza Farahan, posted numerous photos from the fun night to his Instagram account. One photo shows the other cast members who went to the event with him: Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mike Shouhed, and Mercedes "MJ" Javid. The lack of Lilly in the photo prompted one fan to ask Reza if Lilly isn't on the cast anymore, a question that has so far remained unanswered.
It doesn't seem to be just a case of Lilly being too busy to attend the event either. Two days prior to the event, Naughty But Nice Rob published an article that provided a list of all of the Bravo celebrities that received an invite and the only one missing from the "Shahs of Sunset" portion is Lilly.
So what was Lilly doing while the rest of her co-stars were in New York City? Lilly was still living the luxe and fabulous life in Los Angeles, as evidenced by a photo that she posted of her and some friends enjoying an alfresco dinner at Mohamed Hadid's mansion, hosted by his fiance Shiva Safai. One fan asked why she wasn't at the upfront presentation and whether she's doing season four but she hasn't answered.
Lilly Ghalichi has hinted that she won't be returning to the show. She wrote in one blog post last November that she's "extremely turned off by and disappointed" by the entire group and that the "last thing [she] want[s] to do is stir up drama, or be involved with people that enjoy starting drama." With how the others fought and dismissed her on the last season of "Shahs of Sunset" and have slammed her in press interviews, it's understandable why she wouldn't want to come back even if given the opportunity.
