'Shahs' Mercedes Javid and Reza Farahan make fun of Lilly Ghalichi being fired

Two people who are apparently very happy that Lilly Ghalichi has been fired from "Shahs of Sunset" are Mercedes "MJ" Javid and Reza Farahan. Their happiness at Lilly's departure is not surprising since they were the ones who didn't get along with Lilly the most in the last season

On Sunday, July 13, Reza Farahan retweeted a link to a TMZ article that reported the news. According to TMZ, the show's cast has already been filming the fourth season for months without Lilly. A replacement for Lilly, who has yet to be identified, has been found and has actually already filmed scenes with the rest of the cast. The reason for Lilly's demise? Producers apparently just found her to be too boring.

Clearly, by retweeting the link to the news, Reza wanted to make sure that as many people as possible knew about it. While Lilly, who was on the show for seasons two and three, was initially friends with Reza, their friendship soured as Reza got close again to MJ, who found Lilly fake.

According to MJ, Lilly's problem wasn't so much that she was not interesting but rather that she was fake. She told TMZ over the weekend that Lilly's departure from the show was inevitable since not showing your true self on reality TV doesn't work. As for whether she thinks the show will be better without her, MJ gave a definite yes.

While Reza Farahan and Mercedes Javid have made clear how they feel about the cast change, the other cast members, Mike Shouhed, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi and Asa Soltan Rahmati, have stayed silent. Reza shared a photo of the cast at a Bollywood party over the weekend that included several other people, one of which may very well be Lilly Ghalichi's replacement in season four of "Shahs of Sunset."
