Lilly Ghalichi

Lilly reflects on the amazing season and explains why she decided to end things with Ali for good.

on Feb 10, 20130

Looking to the future, I hope to take what I have learned and become a better friend, a better daughter, and a better companion to someone that is willing to take on this damaged heart. I hope to let loose a little more, and learn to have more fun.

I just launched my second company, Lilly Lashes (LillyLashes.com), and I plan on continuing to work as hard as I can to follow my dreams.

I hope you all have enjoyed watching us this season. I have truly enjoyed sharing my life with you all.

I think you are a beautiful person on the outside and on the inside I think you probably have a hard time showing who you really are. Your successful yet you do carry yourself as better than these people on the show. Your surprised at their actions when it is very clear that they make you uncomfortable. It doesn't have to be that you are better than these people because you choose not to conduct yourself in the same manner as they do. But it does't make them wrong, it just makes them people who are not afraid to get loud or act up or sometimes make bad decisions. They also have loving hearts for one another which is another reason they connect so well. Asa is a perfect example of someone like you who does not drink and she fits in well with them without having to walk away from them. She accepts who they are and all there faults, however she doesn't always like them but accepting them also allows her to be herself and at times give constructive criticism and sometimes positive words as their friend. It is just part of who Asa is. No different with her reaching out to you when she did. You chose to lie to her in your phone call which showed you not respecting what she was trying to do with you and the direction of the possibility of a friendship. See that was just wrong of you yet you do nothing to clear your wrongs with her. 

As for your relationship with your x, I do hope you can someday look at it and are able to take positive from a negative. He really should be looked upon as the greatest teacher of all as to what kind of man you do not want to be with. You had part in a failed relationship and so you own up to your part. You acknowledge it and you work on how you can make it better for you and your part in your next relationship. I wish you luck and healthiness in your life.

You are a very welcome women to the cast  of the Sha"s. I love the way you always have something kind to say. You do stand out ,sadly the other's do not notice. I think you could and would  maybe help out G.G. She will turn out to be the one best friend you could find. She is in pain (don't know why ?) ,but you could give her some true advice and also how to handle her anger. What a bight star you have been to the show !!!

Lilly has been a positive addition to the Shas... she owns who she is ......she is a good sport dealing with the cast and trys to be supportive with their differences..........I wish she would consider a implant reduction and scale back on the makeup and hair, but thats my opinion

I must say Lilly and Mike have been my faves this season.  They have been real and true to themselves and to others.  Very refreshing!

Lilly, must say I'm happy you are realizing that "he's not that into you." I didn't meet my husband until I was 40! Went out with a few men, was engaged twice before, but they or I were not ready for the ultimate committment. As harsh as this sounds, you will be better off and there is a MAN out there for you and when you meet, you'll know it. A real man will not try and keep you from doing what you love to do, he accepts you for you and is there to support you even if you don't need it.  Stay strong, don't let anybody tell you what you should do. Stay loyal to yourself because you and only you can know what's in your heart and your desires.  God Bless and take care.

You are smart and beautiful and have your own money. Forget the past and go for whatever you want. You will need a guy if you want children so go for him. Don't look back and wish.

I really enjoyed watching the show and you do show that you are a strong woman and have a lot goals in life.  Your ex-boyfriend obviously had his goals and he didn't really care what your goals were or wanted to stand by you.  He want you to stand by him.  I'm sorry that you lost 11 years of your life and I'm sure that is very hurtful but with time your heart will heal and be ready for when Mr. Right comes along.  There is someone out there for you and your heart will know when he comes along.  Just remember not to be comparing him to your ex like you did on your blind date.  You need to give the guy a chance.  You can't blame the guy for your ex's defects (lol).  Everyone is different and have their unique way of treating a woman special. You are very beautiful.

Lilly - Good for you, for knowing when to say 'when'.  You know that you'll meet someone who deserves you.  I hope you'll be back for the next season of SOS.  I think you have a good heart; you're very kind and considerate.  You know how to speak up for yourself, without losing your sh*t.   Good luck, with all your business ventures.

If there is another season, hope that they drop u.  You bring nothing to the show whatsoever.  You are boring, boring, boring.

Lilly it is so sad to hear you say this man you dated for 11 years loves you. This man doesn't know how to love, and perhaps you would rather believe that he loves you to cope with your feelings, or perhaps to move on. For as long as you say to yourself that this man loves you, you will always have that room in your heart hoping he will change and get back together.  Face  the reality of who he is,  selfish, self centered and weak. Strong man has integrity, confidence and understand respect. You wasted 11 years of your life with this " little boy" it is time for you to meet a real man  who is confident  and knows how to treat a woman. How condescending of his friend to put down what you do for a living- lawyers are a dime a dozen !!!

Lilly, I didn't always agree with the things you said and did on the show, but I am in agreement with you regarding your 11 yr. relationship. It is time to let go and move on! I heard a different side of you on WWHL valentine special, a more humble Lilly. Hopefully Patti Stanger can find the right man for you, give her a chance! Everyone deserves love and to be in a loving and trusting relationship. Best of luck!

Love your look, love your ethics, love that you have your own high-end fashion enterprise even though you went to law school.  You're the role model Iranians in the US need nowadays.  Not those other jack As

Lilly,seriously i have ha an expierence with ambien and Thank God my husband was home with me. i dont remember one second of it. i was slurrring my words, talking toppl who wasnt here,just doing crazy stuff. m hubby even stayed home from work the next day because he was so afraid.i immediately called my dr and apparently,this is typcal behavior for someone being on ambien. I am telling you MJ is NOT lieing!she really should get a different sleeping med though because it is dangerous. I dont believe they should even have it on the market!

I'm no fan of yours Lilly,but I do like that you always take the time out to blog every week unlike some others who are well liked but ignorantly are not bothered and are beginning to bite the hand that feeds them! Eg: Mj GG.... Lilly your becoming more likable.

Lily, Am much puzzled by you. You portraits yourself as a a truly delusional person in this show. An 11-year "relationship" with the guy who has repeatedly refused to move from Tx to CA for you? I have news for you, honey. There has been no relationship. And no, you didn't break up with him because there is no relationship to be broken up from. You are now 30 yrs old. Am sorry that you have wasted 20+ years of your life on a non- existing relationship. It's too bad that none of your friends or family had pointed this simple fact out to you in the last 8-9 years. The jig is up after 1-2 years of long distance romance. Your records shows that you are a very highly educated person (with a law degree) but your behavior and conversations (in the show) shows otherwise. Instead of being a strong, confident and smart woman - you appear to be shallow, artificial and über insecure. You are cute, but the pile of big hair, the paint on make up and the baby voice said only one thing to me: soft porn. How could anyone take you seriously - a potential boyfriend, a potential corporate client? As an older woman with a daughter in her 20's - my friendly advise to you: have a make over - if you want to be taken seriously as a smart, well-educated woman that you are. Do whatever you need to do to be kind, secure and lose that overdone look and that annoying, unprofessional baby voice. Best of luck, Lily.

Lilliy, take your time and find true love. There is someone out there who will be proud of what ever career path you choose! I applaud your choice for not drinking in Cabo, but you were a bit of a downer, you know how these guys act when they are partying and you knew thats what they were going to Cabo for, I would have choosen a diffrent group of friends to go with .

Oh, thank GOD!

 

It's about friggin' time, Lilly!  I'm so proud of you.  It's so hard to make that step, but once you make it you're so glad you did.  Move on.

I am not a huge fan of yours but my heart goes out to you. I never realized how frowned up you being a business women was and how far you have come. For that, I think you are amazing. Good luck and God bless.

Lily: Bringing a knife to the dinner table is illegal. o_O

 

I'm still laughing at that comment.  How do you eat steak?  Or lamb?  Or cut carrots for goodness sake!  LOL 

 

Anyway, I think you're adorable WITHOUT all the make-up and the hair.  I also wanted to applaud you a while back (Cabo) for not drinking. I don't like being around drunks either.  They make asses out of themselves and it reflects badly on you, the sober one.

It was nice to see another side to you Lilly. I wish you all the success in the world with your dating, bikini line, and eye lash line....much love!

You are adorable. Perhaps the big hair and the lashes are a tad too much but otherwise, you totally have it together. Get over the loser ex. It's over. Time to move on. You were terrible to the poor date you had dinner with. He was so cute and nice. Your ex doesn't love or value you enough to make a relationship happen so why would you want to be with him?

Lilly, don't feel sad at all about Ali. Those years weren't wasted, instead you live, you learn, you move on and now you can keep your life open for someone who you will truly be happy with. Have faith!

...It is time to totally leave Ali the loser behind and concentrate on your life and business. Try to be a little more down to earth and not so uppity that you forget that there is more to life than hair, make-up and clothes.

 

P.S.  Eat some food!

i adore you so much. i don't care what you do with your style because you are a sober person with a will to succeed and that is one in a BILLION!

tg u left ali. i am sorry it took you this long to come to terms with trust bc being cheated on is scarring, your circumstances make him deplorable.

don't get close with asa. she is an opportunist. she isn't like you to take care of her body or her mind long term. she fenagles around it and i hope you figure it out before she figures a way to get the best of you too.

don't change. u are a role model. ur hugeee hair makes me laugh but if that's what you like, more power to you.

I think her hair weighs more than she does!  Wonder how she really looks under all that makeup!  Really, not being catty just realisitic....shed some of it and you may see a real person under all that!

I think you are fantastic Lilly. You are absolutely gorgeous (and so is your sister)! You do deserve someone who will treat you right and it won't be hard for you because you are the full package. To wait for someone that long who chooses not to commit must be hurtful, but I know you will find Mr. Right soon. So many years of your prime years wasted.

 

Your attitude and look on life is very similar to mine. I'm a fan! Your dog is too cute for words.

 

I think your bikini line looks amazing and I am sure your lashes will be just as great. Don't let any haters get you down. If being a lawyer isn't for you, then being a lawyer isn't for you. It was a hard scene to watch when your "friend" visited and was harsh because I could see you were about to break into tears. Best wishes!

Lilly, I really enjoyed watching you this season. You come across as a very sweet and genuine person. I'm thrilled you ended it with Ali. You deserve an amazing man. Girl, on your next date please don't talk about Ali unless you are not at all interested!!!! I'll miss watching you and Coconut every Sunday...

Lilly, be open to love and love will find you. Keep in mind that you want a family, not a boyfriend for more than a year.  Good luck and God bless you.

It warmed my heart to see you reach out and compliment MJ in this episode. You seemed genuine and sincere. It would do your heart some good to let down your hair, go with less make up and have some real good fun. You'd be surprised what that can do for you soul. Thank you for sharing your life with us. I can say I was intrigued with the way you handled the various situations like a human. You may look close to perfect but you are a real human like the rest of us. May your struggle enrich and inspire you!  Peace be with you & God Bless!!

Lilly,

When I heard "11 years" I couldn't help but to comment.  I was with my now ex-husband on and off for 11 years.  I could describe him like you.  I think he loved me but he really didn't treat me like I should be treated.  No abuse or anything...just not as invested as he should be.  Not putting me first ever.  Not making me feel "safe" in his love.  We wound up marrying, having children and staying together for 20 years.  HOWEVER, he walked out 3 years ago, on me...and our family.  It's the most heartbreaking thing I've ever endured.  He took my future dreams,etc.  The main thing now is that I've been able to look back and realize that in all our time together, nothing changed.  He is selfish and still never really treated me the way I should be treated.  I am actually happy that you said you were walking away from your relationship with Ali.  You have so much to offer.  If can't appreciate it now...he never will.  Be strong in that belief.  You deserve all the love you can handle.

 @BostonKate I can't believe it took your friend to come to LA and talk to you, was it always a one side involvement.  Takes two sista, Ten years no committment what was you thinking about. You was all that and he was going to do what you wanted. Hope you learned something, it is not all about you.

 Thank you Andrea, I was trying to be constructinve.  As far as her not needing me to stick-up for her, I am not the one that allowed some idiot to string-me-along for TEN years!  Uppity, yes, who takes a designer bag and dress to Mexico and expects either not to get it ruined, or even stolen?  Not defensive at all, just trying to be supportive of her decision, and she is scary thin and will suffer in the future from Osteroperiousis in her old age.
