I am very proud of all the success I have achieved, but at the same time, I long to be a wife, and a mother. I am turning 30 in 2013, I just don't want another decade to go by and I find myself to be 40, still unmarried and without kids. Success is important, but my other dreams are too.
Ali and I have been dating since I was 19. He was my very first boyfriend, my first everything. We have had our ups and downs, but we do love each other so much. The problem at this point is he lives in Texas and I live in LA. I already moved back to TX for him once in 2008 (Click here to read my blog post about mine and Ali's relationship), I ended up moving back to LA, so if he wants to make it work, this time he has to move to LA. I have given him the deadline of Jan 1, 2013 to make the move, after that, I am going to move on with my life. I have to; I can't wait for him forever.
As you guys see from the telephone call I have with him in my kitchen, I'm not so sure it's going to happen.
The episode ends with MJ and Reza making up, AMEN. Maybe now she'll stop being such a bitch to me!
You always sniping at MJ is a huge turn off. If your as great as you claim then show some charity to MJ. You have not tried to get to know the real MJ you have written her off as a middle class chubby girl. I bet deep inside of yourself you see a fat unattractive girl when you look in the mirror. Learn to love yourself and then you can love others.
I think you are a beautiful girl! Brains and beauty! What a lethal combination!! Lol.. The only problem I have is your hair. :(.. You kinda look like a mix of Elvira and a Kim K reject.. Please change it. Have you ever considered going lighter? That's something to think about. And you have such a pretty face, lighten up on the makeup. Natural is always beautiful.. But overall you are very beautiful. :)
Lilly, you really are too much. While I admire your accomplishments and entrepreneurial spirit, you have only gotten progressively more annoying as the season has gone along. First of all, you act like you're an A-list celebrity. Woman, PALEEEZ! You've been on a few episodes of a reality TV show, give me a freakin' break! Eva Longoria's stylist washes your dog?? That says a lot more about Eva Longoria's stylist than it does about you; ie, what a loser. Secondly, while I agree that MJ shouldn't be throwing daggers at you for no reason, you degrading her by calling her "middle class" and claiming that you can 'buy her whole life and donate it to charity' is highly juvenile, condescending, and narcisisstic. What are you, 15 years old?? The FACT of the matter is, according to the online website CelebrityNetWorth, you are actually the POOREST one of the entire group. You're not even that rich; you just act like it. MJ's net worth is at least twice yours. So sorry to bring back down to earth honey, but you ain't all that. A few words of advice from a fellow Iranian. Your narcisissm and pompousness make you ugly, and not even that Mt. Everest of makeup you're buried under can fix that. Speaking of which, you need a make-under. Here's to hoping Bravo dumps you at the end of the season.
Hey Lilly. I hope all is well for you. I just want to convey that I think you have a pleasant personality, you're indeed educated, have good style sense, not petty nor a troublemaker. I think you make a nice addition to the show. However, although you have all that going on for you, you do have a tendency to pour it on thick when it comes to your achievements and what you have. You speak a lot about your everything -- all the time! And while that's a wonderful thing and certainly something to be proud of, remember that self praise stinks and a little humility goes a long way. On another note, however, it's too bad that MJ keeps throwing her digs at you, but it's apparent that jealousy plays a big part in that whole scenario due to Reza and your relationship. Well, feel nothing, 'cause she has to work on getting over it herself. It's her trip, not yours, plain and simple. You just keep doing your own thing. I personally think that all MJ needs is to get laid. Perhaps that would relieve her from being so uptight about what Reza's doing and who he chooses to spend time with. All the best to you!
Omgsh you are so funny! You should totally buy her life! I love you so far so keep up the good work!
I think you secretly have a Kim Kardashian shrine hidden in your apartment. Come on you try to look like her talk like her and dress like her. Your also have a fashion line, and use Kims makeup artists. It's creepy
Thank you Lilly for standing up to MJ. she's definietly insecure and definitely on something. she slurs at times and seems distant and can't speak. hhmmm. we'll be reading about her soon enough if she continues on the path she's on with drinking and prescriptions. Lilly, your smart, beautiful and a good pet owner. You rock girl. your doing something good for your life and you don't need Ali if he's not commited. YOu will find someone someday. I like you on the show from day one and I don't think your mean at all but you stand up when your right and I like that about you. Don't let anyone walk over you. Stay away from GG, she's a maniac and dangerous. Love you girl.
At first I thought you were just this fake, spoiled girl but after seeing you with your little dog, I changed my mind. You clearly love that little darling and take good care of her. Many people would not keep a special needs dog but you did and that shows that you have a good heart and truly know how to love. Bless you.
Lillly you are a beautiful woman but your attitude is nasty!!! If your were really as awesome as you keep saying you are, you wouldn't have to say it. In my opinion you're a insecure little girl, because confident happy people don't have to shout to the world how fantastic they are. Yes you are pretty and "skinny" but what the hell does that matter? Is MJ a little chunky, yes but WHO CARES!!! so are most of the woman in the United States!! MJ works and has her own place to live and although it may not be to your standards atleast she is providing and taking care of herself. The first episode I thought I was going to like you but you have turned into an ugly, catty, jealous little girl. Grow up, get some self confidence and stop telling everybody how awesome you are. If you walked around my town with the attitude someone would straighten you out REAL QUICK!!!
Hi Lilly...Hope you're well..... after all the Ali drama etc blar blar ....... you soooo come across as the good/nice girl...who means well..!!! & you could be nice.....however you being mean to MJ big mistake....
Did you not "wakeup' to Reza wanting your ONLY commishhhhh.. on a Sale..... fact that Reza wants only from you the commish baby...its all about the muuula$$$$...... big mistake going after MJ......could have like you!!!!!
If a man REALLY wants to be with you, he will come hell or high water to get to you....no matter what. It's been 10 years already, move on girl.
Lilly, I think you are a great addition to the show. You are young, thin, and successful as you keep reminding everyone....constantly. Your comments are realistic and rational. A little humility could go a long way for you.
Lilly - When I watched this episode where you had dinner with your girlfriend. I felt like in someway I had been there before having that same conversation. I have seen way too many friends and family waste a good chunk of their youth on a man/woman. I'm sure you have a connection to Ali that none of us will ever understand, but the beauty of a different perspective can reveal the things that you dont easily see. That is, he is not the one for you. If he really wanted to wife you up, he would've done so. It is not fair, life isn't fair. If you extend your deadlines with him you are only opening up the opportunity for you to become bitter and resentful. Sometimes we don't think we have the capability of that but when we wait around for something we want (that is literally standing in front of us but so far from our reach), it becomes inevitable. It's time you let it go for good.
Was really looking forward to you as a new addition, clearly beautiful, great style and self proclaimed brains and class. Unfortunately the latter two aren't showing through based on your actions and behavior. You seem to take great joy in coming between MJ and Reza's friendship and for that you should be ashamed. If you're truly a friend to Reza you should recognize the importance of their relationship and encourage him to work it out with her. Yes she has made some unnecessary digs towards you so I don't blame you for not wanting to befriend her, but you should recognize her importance in Reza's life and stop being so selfish, you display happiness when speaking about the demise of their friendship as though its some sort of accomplishment on your part. Your behavior really took this beautiful girl I first saw on screen and made you very very ugly. You should strive to be better than that. Looking forward to seeing a better you or no you at all next season...
PS you're not in Texas anymore, take the hair volume down some, it takes away from your beautiful face
How were you a lawyer 8 years ago per your story, if you are 29 now? Also, what does being fat or skinny have to do with MJ's comment to you? Not to defend MJ but you have made some rediculously abnoxious comments too.
You are so full of yourself and that's not a good look on anyone. There's a difference between being confident and being overly cocky, which you are. Why do you keep telling us every two seconds how fabulous you are? Do you not hear it enough from others so you have to assure yourself? I also think you are trying way too hard to be like Kim Kardashian. You can deny it all you want, but just take a good look at yourself and you'll see the resemblance. And please, for the love of God, lose that annoying voice and start talking like a mature, grown woman. You sound so silly and rather annoying.
Lily, you are amazing! it is grand to see beauty smarts class and heart all in one! yes this crowd is a bit rough huh?! MJ shouldn't be attacking you. She should get to know you and the assess IF there is a reason that you guys to click. simple. I believe she will regret it one day. GG is way out there bananas! too much and unfortunately her issues are for life. I think it is going to take her anotehr ten years to calm down and really grow up and form a solid foundation for herself. Sad but true. I dont believe Omid is a good influence for her at all. He is a TAD crazy (classless) too.
Nonetheless you are amazing. love seeing you on the show and your sister is very beautiful and smart as well. Sorry i do not see the resemblance of "twins" but you sure do look like sisters!
Continued blessings to you and success! I hope your boyfriend finally made it to LA to be w/you, YOu are surely well deserved of a MAN who wants to be by your side.
You are a good person! I would love to see you and MJ connect. I think she is threatened by you and rightly so! You have a lot going for you. Reza sees that and MJ does too! She just doesn't want to admit it. On the Ali side of things, I know you have invested a lot of time in him. However, sometimes we need to cash in our investments and move on. Although, he was your first in so many ways. He is probably not your last. You have so much to offer. Don't wait on someone who is going to give you excuses. You are too smart for that! Have a happy new year! Make some positive changes! Get a man that will treat you like the queen you are!
Lilly , Really u are so brilliant, but u clearly can not see he's using u.. It's the new year, he's not in t o you, break it off for good. It's hard the first heart break, but you can do it! Always remember its better to let our boy friend DESIRE us more, then we do them, that keeps them coming back.. AKA YOUR doing this by chasing him.. HE IS NOT IN LOVE W U, I BET HE'S CHEATING, Leave, other wise you will be alone, and un married. If he does truly does love you, he will come back, but I doubt it. Can you not SEE he's made a joke of you, girl.. Oh and you should NEVER marry a man, you have not seen ALL sides of em ladies, some men will hide there bad sides, forever, until they get a ring on your finger .. Lilly don't look for love, it will find you your soul mate.. please cut back on the make up, it doesn't look classy, girl. It does make you look like a plastic Barbie, your too pretty for that! Less is more.. I guess maybe I am the only one that believes your beauty should be ENHANCED, not caked on!! I bet eva longoria fires her hair guy was it, really u can't bath your dog your self, your in trouble if u want to have kids girl??!!
Why the dig on MJ for "switching sides" when she clearly explained WHY she did that and Invited Asa and not GG?!
MJ is the "realest" person on the show -- maybe "YOU should pay attention and learn a few things from HER!" Sure she may be a little chunky, but then again the "average" American woman (according to statistics) is a size 14.
I think your problem with MJ is that you are extremely jealous of MJ and Reza's relationship.
Stop being such a "mean girl" and grow up!
TEAM MJ ALL THE WAY!!!
I was impressed that you used the words "Two wrongs don't make it right", but it was clearly just empty words. What a tacky thing to say "I can buy your whole life"! I think ppl seem to judge you more, even if MJ also makes mistakes, because you want to come across of being a perfect angel. While MJ even takes us to her therapy session with her. Just let your hair down and admit that you like everyone else are in a process of learning about life. Stop saying you were the perfect daughter, sister or gf etc...There is no such thing as perfect.
Lilly, You would be so much good looking, if you got rid of about 3/4th of that hair - it is horrible. Also do something with those eybrows - way to big. Also, tone down all that
make-up. Other than that, you look good
MJ is just jealous of you...you're ten years younger than her, more than half her size, very successful, well educated and her life long BFF goes on and on about you, trying to stir up drama by constantly singing your praises to her knowing how insecure she is about herself (I mean, come on...look at what she as a mother, can you blame her for feeling insecure? Who wouldn't if they grew up in a household with the constant critizing from their mother over every single thing she/he has done in their lifetime?).
Reza isn't as innocent as he appears this season. I don't know if fame has gotten to his head but he has changed and has become out rightly RUDE to MJ. She probably attributes it to his friendship with you, so therefore she's jealous of you.
In regards to your boyfriend...what kind of "boyfriend' lets the woman he 'loves' move away to another state a 1000 miles away? It appears to me that he's just not that into you. Let me explain something to you...A man, who truly LOVES a woman would literally move across the country to be with her. He wouldn't risk losing her to another man. It's plainly obvious that he either doesn't really share your feelings or he knows you won't leave him so he has you practically BEGGING him to move to L.A. It's very sad and pathetic to see a woman pressure a man to make a move, to only have him tell her that he hasn't even begun to look for a place to move in L.A. I mean if he really wanted to be with you, he would be moving to be with YOU.
Give up on that guy...he's never going to move to be with you and if he does, it will be because you forced him and he will be resentful of you. You are beautiful but you are no longer so young that you could waste a few more years before moving on because you want to have children and a family. To spend another minute with someone who doesn't want the same things as you, is wasting YOUR REPRODUCTIVE YEARS when you could find someone who wants the same thing as you do. You don't want to be in the same situation as MJ...middle aged and alone asking friends to bring a male friend to help hook you up with a guy because you can't find someone because you're 40.
Good luck to you. You seem like a nice woman.
Lilly you are stunning and brains to boot. I am totally jealous and I think you are awesome not only to watch but just to admire and dream that this is what I wish I was.
I hope you someday find a really cool husband who gives you everything you desire. I wish to see you in a super fabulous larger and sumptuous home you deserve to live like a queen.
We see stupid girls with beauty but not brains like you so I hope you get these as you deserve this lifestyle.
Thanks to you and Reza for giving this dull housewife something to look forward to each week.
O my god get over yourself ! You seemed ok in the first episode but now your annoying you say the same crap over and over again rich,pretty,skinny, rich,pretty,skinny .your pretty but your nothing special your beginning to look like an idiot
MJ might be chubby and sometimes jealous ,but there is more realness in her little pinky finger than Lillys whole fake body.
Lilly...you had better watch out! You have all the beauty and brains and personality BUT no husband or kids. I have a girlfriend that is JUST like you only she is Italian. She is now over fifty years old with no family of her own. She is such a great person but for some reason she wasted her time on guys that were cheaters and ended up alone. If you REALLY want to be married with a family then don't wait. Do it. If it doesn't work because it wasn't perfect then at least you did it and have children. Have a prenup if you are really more sucessful than him. I saw you on WWHL and you looked shocked at the questions that people ask about what you have done to yourself and what is real. Who cares? They just ask so they can get what you have. It is all flattery. You rock! Go for it!
Wow. Love yourself much?! lol. Ordinarily I don't look at the personal blogs or pages but I was curious, so I did. You are truly physically one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. With that said at that awful dinner party with GG and Omid carrying on, I thought that this woman (you, Lily) is a force to be reckoned with, class and beauty, so rare for reality tv. After reading your blog and viewing your page, I come away with a totally different perception of you. There is a very fine line between confidence and conceit. You may have crossed it in the wrong direction in mho. Please don't let all this go to your head, it's ruined many a reality star.
I've liked you from the beginning and found you enjoyable to watch if only to live vicariously thru you for a bit, so I never thought a thin, beautiful, successful, Persian girl such as yourself could have anything in common with a Mexican girl like me until this episode. I rarely if ever respond to the blogs but watching your struggles with Ali is all too familiar to me, for the past few years my Persian "boyfriend" (much like you, i have never had a real boyfriend) and I have had a similar "relationship". It brought tears to my eyes watching you because i have been there and had those conversations that go nowhere, with the same disappointed look on my face. Same as Ali, my beloved thinks saying what he thinks I want to hear will make me forget the issue at hand, that ignoring it will make it go away and that promises don't have to be kept as long as he is apologetic in the end. I have dutifully waited, ignored and hoped because much like you I am a hopeless romantic who loves him with everything ive got and only wants someone to come home to and share my life with. I also have grown tired of waiting and wondering where my life is going, I feel stuck and lost because time slips away faster each day and I cant seem to let him go and he cant seem to make up his mind. I look forward to seeing how your relationship works out and hope you find the happiness you want and deserve, maybe your experience will give me some clarity and help me deal with my situation but if you have any tips on how to deal with a Persian man I would greatly appreciate them.

Lilly made the comment about selling MJ b/c MJ has been snarky and nasty towards her. Let's be real and fair folk. MJ is jealous of the thinner, younger Lilly. Lilly seems to have it all together, MJ doesn't. Lilly would be wise to back off the comments though. MJ never will she s two faced, and too jealous.
Lilly move on. He is just not that into you or he would have married you by now. Harsh but true. End of story. You can try to rationalize it but it's clear to me and most others that he isn't interested in marrying you or even being in the same state with you. Plus, why on earth would you (or anyone for that matter) want to marry someone you have to give a deadline or ultimatum to - I mean really? That's a recipe for disaster.
Again Lily, stop with bragging about yourself every 2 seconds. It is getting really old. MJ digs at you but own it girl, you do the same thing. Some of your comments are rude and very disrepectfule to everyone. The more I see of you the more I hope you leave the show. For someone who has been with the same man since she was 19 and he still has not committed, TIME TO LET IT GO, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!! I do not believe that you were ever an attorney, you are not old enough, it just doesn't compute. Fess up!!!
@jis72 I think it's creepy you know these things and they bother you that much..... Perhaps somebody has a secret Lilly shrine. Also a bit racist
@realmccoy84 Please!!!!!! So just because MJ is chunky she can say WHATEVER she wants. I am sure you are unhappy with yourself and see something in MJ that you see in yourself or wouldn't be so angry. Lilly has been the opposite of catty and jealous and whatever else you said. That is MJ. And you. Obviously
Interesting!!! Law school is normally 3 years, but it can be done in 2 if you take extra classes and go summers. So assuming that, she would of had to start law school at 19, after getting a 4 year degree. So even if she was a brilliant child, graduated high school early, while duel enrollment in college, she would of had to have done all that by 19. If this is true she not have had ANY time to actually practice law if she walked away at 21.
@Stephanie_in_WA Why has this turned into fat girls vs. skinny girls? MJ has a lot of problems and was horrid to Lilly from the get go!
@jis72 Haha I am sure if you met MJ you would not think so highly of her. She would be the first person to make fun of you and talk about your weight, looks or outfit. Have you not been watching the show?????
Can we blame MJ for not having it all together with a miserable witch of a mom? OMG...I'm not surprised that MJ has weight issues, and is distrustful of new people - especially other women as well as men because her mother drilled into her head that she's not marriage material, and she's a nothing and a nobody. If your own mother tells you such horrible 'truths' about you all your life, how do you think that child will turn out as a adult.
I get annoyed with the snarky comments she makes againste Lilly, but she's so insecure not only in her looks (which is why getting her eyelash extensions and her hair blown out is much more important than going out and getting more clients), her body, the fact she's single, and of the status of her BFF, Reza. Reza's been cold to her because of his own hurt feelings due to MJ being friends with GG, and he's been giving her daggers whenever possible - ESPECIALLY by going on and on about what a wonderful, beautiful, gorgous, skinny, successful, etc, woman Lilly is.
Hopefully now that MJ and Reza have made up, she and Lilly can become friends, but I doubt it because it's hard for someone who lacks self-esteem to be friends of someone who's so confident, and is educated, beautiful, and successful because it underscores all the negative feelings they feel about themselves because they feel that they don't measure up to the other person. It's really sad, and it makes me despise MJ's mother all the more.
catlady super catty Jealous much wow !
she passed the bar exam and does not need to practice unless she chooses too.
she has chosen to do somthing else and if it bothers you so much you can check the video of her showing you her home she has the certification on her wall. I worked as a legal assistant and I can tell you it is Kosher !. Women like you are so sad and negative.
@catlady123 Actually, my step daughter is an attorney for a year and she is 27, so Lily is not too young.
@catlady123 I totally agree with catlady123! I wonder how Lilly looks like without all the tons of make-up and fake hair.
@bravo-tv-viewer MJ is just like her mother. And a 40 year old woman is responsable for her own actions
@sinsin No one is jealous and I doubt anyone cares if she practices law or not. Lily said she wasn't happy and now she does something that makes her happy. I am sure everyone is "happy" for her.
People are simply and accurately, pointing out that one cannot be a practicing attorney at the age of 21 or 22 years of age. Even if you graduate early at 21, go to a 3 year law school and pass the bar exam by 24 or 25 years, you cannot have practiced for 8 years and also be 29 years old. Do the math.
You're generally speaking 21 or 22 when you graduate from college with a Bachelor Degree, so unless she was skipped several times throughout her school career, I don't see how it is possible to be a lawyer at 22. I believe Law School's an additional three years of education, if not more, so I am not sure how it's possible. I thought the same thing when I read Lilly's blog.
@Saritta @corky1121 @catlady123 In the US, it takes about 7 yrs to get a law degree: 4 yrs for pre-law and 3 yrs for law schools. After that, one had to pass a bar exam. Most ppl finish high school at 17-18, and if they really work hard, they could have gotten their law degree in 6 years, then 6-8 months for the bar exam. that's 17+7: 24 yrs old lawyer. But I beleive We would have heard from Lily about how smart Lily is if she had finished her Bachelor in 3 yrs. So- no. So, the youngest she could be when she's a lawyer is 25. If she's a lawyer 8 yrs ago, then she's now at least 33-34 yrs old. Ie - she's only 6-7 yrs away from Being 40 and alone. Conclusion: she "shaved" a few years off her age; a very common practice. But not for people her age.
