The Persian Version

GG discusses her relationship with Mike, Chris, and the Las Vegas bust-up.

Mar 16, 20120

Bravotv.com: Talk to us about your relationship with Mike.
Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi: Mike and I have known each other over 15 years, and he was always like a big brother figure for me. He and I are both naturally very flirtatious, so it always gets a little interesting when we're around each other. The most common ground we share is that we both love each other and will always be there for each other. . .no matter what the title of our relationship is. I won't say much, but soon enough everybody will see for themselves how it plays out between us.

Bravotv.com: How would you describe your personal style? How long have you had a stylist for?
GG: I can't really put a label on my personal style. I love, love, love fashion!!! To me fashion is like art. . .It is a form of self-expression. It's always nice to get inspired by others, but you've got to find what works for you and, most importantly, find what makes you feel good. I'm very lucky to have close friends that are also stylists because I can always turn to them for advice. My friend of nearly 20 years, Tahirah Felton, is one of my stylists and is always to my rescue to pull together amazing things for me.

Bravotv.com: Have you always been afraid of flying?
GG: I've been flying for as long as I can remember and was never afraid until the summer of 2005, when a very traumatizing experience took place while flying back to L.A. from London. I remember the captain announcing we were going to experience some turbulence, which never affected me before, so I was fine. But the plane suddenly dropped causing the cabinets to fly open with bags falling all over. The sudden altitude change caused the oxygen masks to drop. Now you're probably thinking that we've all seen the videos to put the mask over your face, but I went into shock mode and began screaming that we're all going to die! Of course after a few minutes we were all back to a safe zone but I was forever scarred. I've been through hypnotherapy and it has helped quite a bit. But if the turbulence gets too much, I lose control.

The only thing I can write on this thread without repeating what I've blogged before on other threads is, as Sunny once told you, "You are a mean girl"!!  And she was right, GG.  You once indicated that you hate ugly people.  Well, what do you think you are?  Your ways make you ugly.  Get some psychological help before it's too late!

Oh good Lord. Do you not know the difference between Persians and Iranians? Iranians are people from Iran. But don't act like Persians don't exist because Persia doesn't exist. You can be Iranian but not Persian. Being Persian means you are a part of that ethnic group. Get YOUR facts straight.

Please note how "Viewer No more" referred to being Iranian, ok, that's a start! People born and raised in Iran are Iranians. Persia went kaput in 1935! Persia does not exist,get with the times people, there no longer is a place called Persia,how hard is this stuff for you anyway?

Proof positive that money cant buy you class. If her parents really care about her they will cut her off. If one has problems with anger management, it DOES NOT become an excuse to defend your childish verbal or mental outburst.you say you have been in therapy your whole life and havent figured out that lashing out will not lead to the temple of wisdom,it will alienate you and guess what noone is going to want to put up with your bullying techniques really who finds this attractive. of all the girls your are the ugliest because of your attitude.all of the other girls have so much more going for them. everyone has baggage obviously you havent dealt with yours. try a new therapist or three.you NEVER take responsibility for you actions and will twist a situation to make yourself look like the victim. i [picked up a mike vibe from you and hang it up he is way to good to put up with your incessant poor me bullshit. poor unhappy sad little child. all the other girls wrap you,especially asa as she is totally unique, with more depth in her little finger than you have in your whole body. with american misconception possibly being an issue do you truly want to represent your culture as a hotheaded spoiled witch that will only solidify a negative image of the Iranian(i do love the word Persian)people. it would be better without you.sorry dear but you need new therapist. you have a great support network through these friends and could be using it to help you but you lash out.

Anita had every right to talk about G.G. at the champagne party after what G.G. did to her in Las Vegas and she text Anita afterwards and called her a jealous B==== G.G. attacked Anita because Mike likes Anita and not her Anita you go girl never back down to anyone especially bullies like G.G. she talked about Asa behind her back to shes a spoiled brat.

I am distrubed to think, after watching the episode, that you still belive you are not the one at fault with the "Anita fight". You brought all the behavior on yourself, and you should be humble and appologize to all involved. Your bad behavior has made me give up on this show. You should be ashamed of your actions.

I don't think GG needs therapy. This "show down" at the pool in Vegas was pretty mild for a reality show actually. I'm disappointed in the others at the champagne party. Anita was going around talking to everyone about GG. Someone should have spoken up and told her if she has a problem with GG, then talk to GG about it otherwise shut up about it. Any comments GG made about Anita where minimal compared to how much Anita was talking about GG behind her back. Anita seems like she is trying to be the center of attention and there is something really not right about that girl. It is sad that the rest of the group didn't see that.

I actually like you GG... Here are some tips from A southern bell! 1) If you and Mike have feelings for each other then his bringing of another chick to Vegas to make you jealous is off limits and I would NEVER give him the time of day AGAIN! If hes disrespecting your feelings for him now how will he treat you when your his girl. 2) You did make fun of that other chick remember always be a lady and don't speak badly of others with anyone! 3) Look fab but DON'T let people know that you work so hard on your fashion. and last but not least 4) Never ever be friends with people that look this good. Always surround yourself around really ugly people that way you will ALWAYS be the center of attention and you will ALWAYS be the best looking! Remember that ugly people need friends too :)

I love this group. They remind me of a young group I once knew but lost touch with. I remember seeing them on the party bus enroute to Vegas. They stopped in Hesperia at In n Out! I thought they were the Kardashians!

Have watched the show a few times, hoping it would get better. Still waiting. I'll give it another week or two and then most likely go on to shows that actually have some quality. Asa is probably the person on the show with the most depth, gg with the least. This show...I don't know, reminds me of cliques of materialistic thugs with love/hate relationships. It's pretty ho-hum and shallow. Embarrassing, I'm sure, to the parents of the participants.

GG needs to take anger management classes. She is a very hostile and volatile person. You are VERY SCAREY GG!!

To refer to an Iranian as Persian, is like calling an Asian ( people ) as Oriental ( objects ).

GG...why are you so confrontational? You have such a good life but have zero idea how to enjoy it. Poor little rich girl, can't find a way to be content with all she has. You are surrounded by people that have known you for years, so try to embrace them and enjoy spending quality time with them instead of trying to be a diva all the time.

GG, your parents must be mortified watching you display no values, no self control, no manners etc etc. You come from a heritage unparalleled and have managed to damage it in ways you will never know or even care about. Your community deserves better.

GG,

Absolute foolishness you are indeed. You need to find yourself, you are way too over the top in your reactions to someone graciously defending themselves against you (ON CAMERA - NOT EDITING) constantly talking about them negatively. You have such a chip on your shoulder. Figure it out and be classy.

You read as just JEALOUS. You are lucky that she didn't knock your front teeth out with your hand in her face, cursing and threatening her. I hope however that someone really gives you a seriuos reality check before that happens because you are going to insult the wrong person.

Grow up and stop jeopardizing friendships, I would have given you the silent treatment as well. You are just angry all the time, that gets exhausting.

Stop sucking the life out of the room.

Always wanting attention is just going to get you negative attention. P.S. Anita's sun suit was extremely hot and she looked hot and you are just jealous! You are attractive but your constant negative behavior makes you ugly - you know one of the two things you can't stand! The upcoming episode when you describe yourself as a rottweiler, you sound so ridiculous - stop being a reject from a bad movie where everyone tries to act like they are a thug.

Ummmm, Persian is often used synonymously with Iranian and that's just a complete falsehood as half of Iran isn't even Persian. It's a very heterogenous other half. Also GG prides herself on her beauty but honestly, has even one person noted her appearance? No. Because she isn't anything more than an average young girl. She is jealous of any girl who actually is beautiful and gets more attention than her. It seems to be a running theme on the shows.

I will say this for the last time. Persians are IRANIANS OF ARAB DESCENT !!!!!!!

Bravo, please post as we need to educate the mass public.

I actually am enjoying this show as I find it a great escape from the real world. GG I hope you realize how blessed you are that you don't have to worry about whether you work 40 hours this week or next. I am trying to give you the benefit of the doubt that your personality is really all for show and that you're not really like the person you're portraying on this series.

cactusrose she meant the double negative. do you really think she would say, "i often act for no reason" or "i never act for a reason" lol yourself, dingbat. and i am resentful i had to defend this person. when a person lives making sure that nobody is better or superior, that person loses a lot of quality living. and, as for lebanon, other countries DEFINITELY think we all are jersey shore. that is part of the global resentment OF the world. join the dingbat club yes, i do not care for the characters of the show. but, as all the other extravagant reality shows exist that i love to hate, it makes me feel better to live in this skin, with my values. re-new this one after 6 episodes i will be there, judging away

GG can NOT be Iranian!! It just can't be. Persians are smart people. What happened to you?? Do persians move to LA and dumb themselves down. Im so confused. Here in nyc Iranians and parents pride themselves on education. Most here are doctors, lawyers, engineers. How did you end up with an infinitesimally low IQ.

Who cares if someone wears H & M or even shops consignment? So gross and shallow.

GG,

I enjoy watching you. Embrace yourself because you have been selected as the villain. Typical Bravo editing. If I was at a pool, with some woman wearing an expensive swimsuit that could not get wet, I would trash talk too. You are a beautiful girl and if there is a season 2, stay true to who are and show a softer side. Next time you make a TV appearance , like with Andy Cohen, and he asks what you are wearing, say "H & M". It's ok to make fun of yourself sometimes and not take petty crap like that seriously.

Where is the Countess?
Where is the Countess?

Where is "The Countess" from The Real Housewives of New York when we need her. I would love to hear her sing "Money Can't Buy You Class" while showing clips of that immature gg girl. I do not really see gg as having money. There is nothing really notable about gg including her looks. I see an average girl with a ton of psychological issues, which she should be embarassed about displaying on a national level. I could not believe her lourding her fakeness over Asa and get this...my niece has that same pool cover up and she bought it from a chain store at the local mall. Now that is hilarious.

GG- You are a real piece of work. You hate ants and ugly people? I can think of a million other things to be hateful about. I am not sure of your role on the show...spoiled girl? I hope future shows can show your good sode. I am sure there is one somewhere! Show it!

Mike and GG are in love. You can plainly see the games they are playing for each other's attention. Jealousy makes people act crazy. Ahh young love :) Come on you two, get together :) you'd have beautiful children!!

GG I do kinda like you. Your style is SERIOUS. From one princess to another I also"get" that about you. However, having a princess attitude does not mean you get to disrespect others. That is not classy at all. Leave Asa alone she's doing her own equally great thing in life. Shut down the mean girl trait and would be even cooler than you already are.

With all the wealth of the people on the show it would be great if it was used to help rebels in Iran fight for democracy. Which they are now enjoying because their families were rich enough to get out of Iran in 1979.

Why do you have to call yourself Persian? Why can't you just speak the truth and say Iranian? This show is the worst!

If this is what wealth is, I would think the world would be justified in treating it with disdain. Just another display of shallow human ugliness. I have friends who are Persian and they would be mortified to see this representation of their culture. Money without taste is just loud. ugly. and an insult to the human race. Reza is a funny cat, Mike. not really that good looking to carry himself like a walking insult to females. GG needs a parent, not a checkbook. the rest who cares.

GGs insecurity can not be hidden. If others haven't called you out on it it was only because they were being polite. While you obsess classifying people by the their designer labels others are doing great things with their lives and making lasting relationships. A quality man will choose a classy women he can spend good days as well as bad days with. A women who will model the qualities he wants in his children. Keep on this path of self centered indulgence and you will be left with the men no one wants. Your equals.

It's to bad GG is so insecure. She must of been picked on a lot as a kid to judge everyone by looks alone. It's sad that she needs designer labels to feel worthy and try's to put that insecurity on others. I like my LV & G like any girl but I know it's who I am that my man feel in love with and who he wants his children to take after. It's many a pretty cruel girls who reached my age without a LOYAL Loving husband. I hope you mature before all the other girls get first pick.

I have been enjoying the first two episodes. Nice take on the life that you guys lead. No hate intended here. GG,I have not read one comment written here, but DAMN, I feel bad for you! The eyes say it all, and I won't blame it on editing. You come across as one angry young lady that has never really had a challenge in front of you. So sad to have this type of personality included in a show that seems based on some fun people. I did love that you brought a dude into the mix that U thought would make Ur boy jealous and it just backfired...that was fun to watch. Nothing wrong with being strong, but Ur brand of strong sems to come from insecurity. Good luck with improving the image. You obviously want to be famous, but llok what happened to a certain lady from Donald Trump's show...I can't even remember her name now...so there you go.

If you can dish it then you should take it too. You're not all that girl, you might be rich and beautiful to SOME people but your behavior on this show is disgusting. I've never met a person who's so proud of living off their parents at your age. Get some life skills! And don't say that you're singled out or people hate you, this is how you chose to present yourself so get a thick skin! Don't go off on people when they call you out, you deserve it. Even if Anita bought her dress from the sales rack, I bet she bought it with her own money that she worked hard for, that alone is something to be proud of.

You're not the first idiot we've seen on TV so sharpen your already protruding chin because it'll get uglier.

I really hope this show gets cancelled. Seems like the cast tries WAY TOO HARD..it's like a combination of the Jersey shore, The Kardashians, and housewives. At least be original. But then again, this is a Ryan Seacrest Production, I should have known. GG needs some etiquette classes..this is a prime example of trying too hard.

GG, Anita is gorgeous and has amazing taste! But you already knew that so you attacked her twice! You are on film talking smack about her to MJ and then swearing you never said anything. Jealousy is not pretty but you accomplished that before this nasty display on episode 2!

Shannon F

GG all you talk about is labels and designers. You started a fight because you thought you were accused of wearing H&M and you participated in a childish conversation about how old Anita's dress was so I was laughing pretty hard when I saw you in this last episode wearing a bathing suit cover up not only from Forever 21 but that is two years old! I know this because I own it. Also, how can you talk about Anita's boney butt when you don't have one either?! You are a snob and incredibly rude. Grow up, get a job and for gods sake stop calling your father Daddy, you are 30 years old!

I'm persian, and I can tell you that the majority of us don't act like these people.The producers wanted a bunch of trashy,low class, and spoiled persians to create drama and mindless entertainment.unfortuantly,this is what people like to watch. So, please don't judge the whole race/culture based on this show. Would you want people of other nations to judge Americans based on what they see on jersery shore??

I am one that never comments on blogs, but I had to on this one. I caught the show for the first time today and was literally disgusted by the person that you "portray" yourself to be on tv. You are so transparent and your insecurities are so evident. All the money in the world can't buy self confidence. I hope you wake up really soon.

mapleton

You don't talk about people behind their backs? Was that a joke? Were you being sarcastic? Was it not 10 seconds prior that you were talking behind Anita's back....About her backside????? WOW! At least your behavior is entertaining, but then again people without manners are very entertaining to watch.

I love most of the shows on Bravo, but if i have to watch one more show about sshallow and rude overgrown children, who have no self worth except what they can buy, i will be watching another channel.
