After being added to the show during its second installment, Ghalichi failed to establish connections with the cast, which resulted in her filming solo for the majority of season three. Now, it has been reported that she will not be returning for season four.
"Lilly Ghalichi has left Shahs of Sunset. And there won’t be a new Shah joining her spot next season," LALATE reported on May 20.
During season three, Ghalichi was left out of a cast trip to Palm Spring (where co-star Reza Farahan became engaged to longtime boyfriend, Adam), and was instead shows at her Los Angeles home, alone and eating Chinese food with her dog, Coconut.
From the looks of the season, Ghalichi was being phased out of the show -- and out of the lives of her co-stars. However, during the reunion, the cast, Ghalichi included, appeared to make amends with one another and Ghalichi even stated that she would like to come back and try to make a relationship with her co-stars work.
Then, during last Thursday's NBC Upfront in New York City, the entire cast was in attendance -- except for Ghalichi, which seemingly confirmed she was no longer a part of the series.
At this point, neither Bravo nor Ghalichi has commented on the casting rumor, and since the network tends to keep things under wraps until a few weeks before the show's premiere, it may be months before fans find out whether or not Ghalichi will return.
