Episode 3 also gives you a glimpse into a more glamorous side of my business, photoshoots! The particular shoot you see is with a gorgeous half Persian, half Mexican model named Nazanin. She is all-natural, full of delicious curves, and is exactly what my partner and I envisioned for our 2013 Swim Collection. Reza and Asa stop by the shoot, and even help me pick out a few looks. It was such a relief to get the shoot behind me, so I want to take them both out to dinner to show my appreciation for their support. I ask Reza to invite MJ as I wanted to extend an olive branch to attempt to start a friendship. She was very cold to me at dinner when we first met, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to give it a second chance.
I wanted an opportunity to sit down and vocalize to her that I am in no way, shape, or form trying to steal Reza from her, and that she did not need to feel threatened by me at all.
However, things didn’t quite go as lovely as I hoped, and as you all saw, MJ is clearly NOT interested in being my friend. First, she was over an hour late to dinner. That is not only tacky and rude; it is disrespectful to the people wasting their time waiting on you. Once she finally did arrive, she began attacking me from the moment she sat down! Well, attempting to attack me anyway.
Lilly, love your style. Wanted to ask you about a gorgeous white/gold choker you wore in one episode. It was like a collar type of choker-- who is it by?
Lilly, you are over praising yourself, that shows you have very low self esteem and praising yourself to others boost your ego. If you really know MJ, you will not be upset that she is late, she is always late for things, that is her, it might be rude to you however, for you to know or be friend someone, you have to take the good with the bad. The history she has with Reza was amazing, she went with Reza to NY to see his family and be there for him. No matter what Reza is feeling he should have talk to her and not behave like an ass. Friends dont do that to each other. Asa and Reza are bringing out another side of them like i have never seen before and fame does this to people. I wish Reza will find a way to repair the situation between him and MJ because friends like her are hard to find. She probably think that the only person she can relate with is crazy GG, well Reza, what do you expect when you did not discuss this with her? Find a way to fix this. Lilly stay out of their problems, try and get to know each of these people on a personal level.
I think you're great. I do agree with a few others here that you should stop telling us viewers how great you are.
You must have learned by now that when a beautiful young, slender woman is the newbie she becomes a target. As you grow more mature you will come to know that it is completely about their insecurities and not about any shortcoming in you.
Lily, Loved your blog..well stated!
Also, saw the pic in question (with cute little coconut) when you were on WWHL and saw absolutely nothing wrong with it. In fact. I thought it was very beautiful. I can't figure her out this year. Last year she was a big part of the problem between GG and another of Reza's friends, Anita.
Watching GG makes me want to scream; she's such a little brat, an immature, angry brat! She thinks the whole showing-off-with-knives thing makes her look strong and cool; it's so phony and ridiculous, and I don't think she has a clue. For someone who's had some therapy-- did she sleep through her sessions??? If they improved her, what was she like before?
And GG, guess what?! Sometimes people are late, get over yourself! You're not a woman, you're a pathetic little girl.
Love the picture frame! Glad you're on to add some glamour & fun - you & Reza are great together. I thought I liked MJ, but now she looks like a crazy Mean Girl. She needs to focus on improving herself, not going with her jealousy & lashing out. Good luck on the show!
Lilly is beautiful inside and out...I recently saw her at the west hollywood post office and she was so cool and sweet as she talked to the post office worker. Apparantly the workers lil girl was a fan and so she mentioned it to Lilly & they statred talking and having a good ol time : ) She was in her less glamorous attire (sweats, hi heel sneakers, a moptop hair do, and no make up)...but that just showed how truly unpretentious she really is in her real life. She didnt care that she wasn't all dolled up and recognized....she was talkng and laughing with the post office worker just like the sweetheart that she REALLY is.
She is awesome! So sweet!
Lilly, you are a beautiful women with a beautiful body, what I need to say is I know it hurts no matter what you say, negative statements are always hurtful and for reality you adapt for this behavior by saying "this does not bother me, I am really flattered". MJ is in a downward spiral and if someone does not straighten her out she will finish her mother’s prophecy as reality. She needs counseling stat her entire life is breaking apart and her friends are leaving a sinking ship. She is obviously jealous of you, she would love to have your shape and have all the attention of both men and women. What is funny maybe you; as an outsider in this group can get to her in some way. She is so beaten down by her mother’s words that she is fulfilling that prophecy. Hunter
Absolutely Love Coconut ! It's adorable to see just how much you love him.
The picture of you holding him in your blog is Anything but sexual :/
Try to stay real !
Praising yourself is a turn off to viewers. Let others praise you. Have you heard of the evil eye? Stop assuming anybody who doesnt like you is jealous. Not every man sees you as God's gift. I know I like the hot curvy busty blondes like the ones in Orange county. You are not my type at all. YOur voice is irritating and mousey sounds nasal. But being in love with yourself is both sickening and narcissistic.
Lily,I am sure MJ realized as would any discerning woman that u r no friend to a woman. As a matter of fact u could not be a friend to anyone. You r obviously pretty,skinny and fortunate. However, it remains to be seen whether or not u r a lady. I am betting you don't even really comprehend what the word entails. I predict u will become quickly exposed and despised. Being a Texan, I know why u probably left here. Texans like to "keep it real"
It's great to see a young, successful and very pretty woman on the show. You are refreshing, and I absolutely adore you. Good luck with the other women you are going to come across however, I am Armenian and have a lot in common with the Persian community, and know how some people can be. You are strong, you will do well, and looking forward to a new face on the show. This is one of my top favorite shows on Bravo. Don't let anyone ever bring you down, jealousy and being envious of another woman friend is not good character. Just be yourself, there are many of us out here that watch you and adore you, welcome to Bravo's Shah's of Sunset! :) Smile!!!! PS, I'm from Connecticut, born and raised, thank you for your prayers it means a lot that many people recognize and acknowledge this sad tragedy.
Newsflash! Your not as great as you think you are. A little on the dippy side and way too in love with yourself. Get real!
MJ is just jealous and very insecure of the relationship you have with Raza sad but true she is in deed a hater instead of embracing a genuine friendship she needs to backlash because of fear she feels within it's called ignorance and low self esteem ...How can she love or value anyone if she cant even love and value herself , her friendship with GG is very pathetic garbage needs to cling to garbage they are two peas in a pod enough said. Lily continue to be fabulous lovable and genuine your fans outshine the haters so to hell with the losers wannabes never has been...
MJ does not hate you, she is just jealous. I wish she would look in the mirror and do something about her drinking and disgusting acts.
Holy sweet mother of God you are annoying!! What's with the fake voice? No wait that was a truly stupid question considering everything about you seems very fake. The most annoying thing so far is that ridiculous nickname you have for Jill "foofer nutter peanut butter cooter lover" So incredibly uncool.
Lilly, you definitely bring the competition to the table and the only girl that seems to welcome you with open arms is, Asa. You seem so open, friendly, caring and funny. I think you're a great addition to the show and if by being on the show helps promote your bikini line and what ever else, MORE POWER TO YOU! MJ comes across like she is psychologically disturbed and GG, well that chick needs to grow up, get some balls, and leave the family nest. Pushing 30 and still having Daddy support is nonsense! Clearly MJ & GG are threatened of your beauty and success!!!!!
MJ is clearly jealous and threatened by you. And good for you for steering clear of GG, she needs a good old fashion spanking if you ask me...lol. Stay strong! And BTW the necklace you wore on What What Happens was that yours?
Lilly I find you to be very likable but also at the same time very hard to like,you say all the right things but It just looks like your acting I think you can't stand any of these people including reza, your on the show to promote yourself and your business (good for you),when reza was showing you that home to buy it looked so fake like a scene to introduce you to the show,remember you're on a reality show if you are going to skip events like the pool party because of drunk people and drama then stick to your perfect life with your perfect friends behind closed doors as you will become very unpopular very fast if you continue this princess attitude..regardless love your bikinis and big hair x
I agree with everything you said in your blog. MJ was so rude at dinner. It shocks me that Reza and MJ are friends. MJ complains about how mean her mother treats her and she turns around and does the same thing to other people. I think her biggest problem with you is jealousy. Also, the picture with Coconut is adorable. MJ is crazy to think that was sexual. I am happy you are on the show, you are fun to watch.
You are a very intelligent person and you are pretty. However, your voice is extremely annoying you sound like a little girl on the playground. I can't take you serious with that horrible voice. Which is sad because you bring class to this group of drunks.
MJ is a loyal friend. She didn't come off jealous to me, she just looked like a friend that may have heard or read things about you that made her feel uneasy about you. Who knows what Reza was telling her about you when the cameras were not rolling, or how he was making her feel about you. I would figure that as an attorney, you would understand that there are always two sides to every story. Think about that before you judge MJ. Also, using the word "hate" is so inappropriate. MJ clearly doesn't hate you, she just looks like a friend that isn't going to trust you as easily as Reza. I MJ's eyes and even as a viewers eyes, all I see is that Reza is in love with your wealth and knows absolutely nothing about you. In fact, as a friend of these group of people, despite you first encounter with them not being the most appropriate, I would have been offended and defensive towards you after you insulted and laughed at Reza's (or my) friends, despite their behavior as you didn't get a true representation of who they are.
As for GG, although I do understand what triggers her anger and impulsivity, and I do believe that Asa purposely says and does things to get under her skin, I also do not condone violence. Golnesa needs to find an alternative way to handle her anger and frustrations and do as Scott Disick does and walk away, or learn to be sarcastically funny as he is as well.
Reza is wrong for doing what he did to MJ. Reza doesn't deserve her as a friend. Unless either one of you are perfect human beings or at the least perfect friends, no one should be attacking other friendships or relationships. I would hope as a woman, you would understand that what Reza did to MJ as a business partner, or as a friend, was a total stab in the back, and he maliciously did it on purpose and all of you knew about it before hand, as it appeared that MJ was the last to know.
But do not act like you have been such a good person to MJ either, when you, Reza, and Asa sat on that dinning table and discussed Reza's side of his relationship with MJ, I didn't hear you or Asa say once, as women, that the conversation about her was inappropriate, instead, you two enjoyed it, also knowing that it was getting filmed. Maybe MJ was right on about you and Asa's intentions and that is why she is friends with GG. Despite GG's anger issues and impulsivity, she is loyal, and that Lilly is something you cannot genuinely buy!!
I know you enjoy being skinny... but maybe you should eat a little more "humble pie" from time to time.
I loveee Lilly!! Its nice to see that people with money AND great looks CAN also be extremely nice... She has a positive personality and owns up to her mistakes (like the Aids comment). TEAM LILLY!! I would love to see a spin-off of her life in Houston!!
So happy to have a lady like you representing not only Persians but Houstonians :)
I enjoy your addition to the cast and think that you are a good role model for a lot of young ladies out there. I wanted to just say that after reading your blog, I see that you spent 4 pages of it directing some energy towards MJ. Now, I'm not entirely a fan of MJ, she seems very bitter with life. I can understand why she is but I dont think it is fair for her to be that way with you. I just don't think it should be worth your time or energy to blog 3 or 4 pages about her and her disdain for you. There were so many great highlights to the show that you didnt capture in your blog, such as the sweet time Asa spent with her mom and dad! Focus on those things. I'm so excited of what is to come on the show!
You are such a delicious and ravishing woman and to think you are intelligent with business savy too!!!!!! The same thing is true of MJ but she is either falling ill from her mothers hate or falling in love with Reza ina kind of non-sexual way. It is so weird. But no matter what you are in for a bumpy ride and I think eventually you will get upset, hurt or mad so have a plan B ready to bring you back to center. I adore you and you ability to
Continued;; so much more to the story with Mj, that has more to do with alcohol, pettiness and jealousy....she is a pet owner and should admire anyone who so loves their pet....we see so much abuse of animals and pets without good homes...I love seeing a pet loved so much....I just lost my cat of 17 yrs....and can appreciate seeing people love their pets, they are our unconditional companions...I saw Coconut on WWHL, and have to say, she is my new favorite reality show furry celebrity...so cute....
This was my 2nd time watching the show. It seems like MJ is the mean one, you seem pretty nice from what I can tell.
Tone it down just a little Lilly. There is nothing wrong with knowing that you are beautiful, rich and smart but like people with money, when you have it, it speaks for itself. No need to keep hashing what you are to everyone, it will speak for itself. MJ is jealous but just give her distance. If she does not like you then don't be around her. It doesn't mean that you can't attend the same functions, it just means to keep your distance. She knows you are not afraid of her but she feels so bad about herself and sees you as a threat. You are what she probably wishes she could be.
First, your little coconut is beyond adorable and I love that you love her unconditionally. (They really are sweeter than people...) I find you to be a fascinating addition to the show, and find your quick-thinking ability to be especially fun to watch. You're one smart --and accomplished--cookie. I must say, though, you will find the tide of approval to begin to ebb if you don't rein in the conceit a bit. Americans love a confident woman, but find braggarts to be the opposite of what they claim. Remember, this reality gig is a marathin, not a sprint-- if you're as oh-so-terrific as you claim, we'll see it; insist on tellng us over and over and you prove your own remarks wrong. I wish you the best of luck!
Are we going to have to hear how FABULOUS you think you are every talking head interview for the rest of the season? I think you need to reexamine the reason why people may not like you...
Saw you on WWHL, and I liked what you had to say. Very pleasant young lady and I appreciated the apology.
But in the blog you did take a shot at MJ
"The ironic part is, MJ is SUCH an easy target if I wanted to stoop to her level"......
Oh dear, I really wanted to like you but somehow cannot get over the fact that you are more like a characature than a real person. The voice, the hair, the makeup..its all just "too much". Wish you luck on the show and may I suggest you learn a bit about modesty, humility and toning it ALL down.
Lilly! You are fabulous!!!!! I was so impressed to learn that you are an attorney as well. I love to see that you have branched out into something else that you love. I practice in Texas, and have found myself burned out often. I love the swimgerie idea, wish I had come up with it...all I ever came up with as an alternative care to practicing law was selling chicklets on the beach...LOL!!!! Stay fabulous!
@Shali , her little dog is so adorable. as a dog owner, be responsible, please, and pick up after your dog!!!!!!!!
It is hard for MJ, she is jealous, but the drinking and behavior is just her way of coping with her obnoxious mother's voice constantly telling her she is know good. Hunter
totally agree.. Lilly is such a fresh, fun addition. I couldnt even stomach this show before Lilly came on. MJ is really acting like a fool and someone should put GG on The Bad Girls Club since she thinks shes so tough in a crowd of a bunch of people who DONT FIGHT...and she knows it.That is why she always acts as tho she is going to hit someone...because she knows that no one would hit her back. But put that idiot on The Bad Girls Club...she can fight all she wants on that show, but her 30 year old ass will get HIT back and beat the hell down. Cant stand watching her on the show. Bravo Please get rid of her and add more Lilly
@ILuvJerseyHW Why shouldn't a smart and beautiful woman call it as she sees it? If Lilly thinks her life is fabulous more power to her. I'm so tired of hearing woman whining about theirs lives - this is refreshing.
grayfox 007 have you seen yourself and paid attention to everything that has been going on a jealous person MJ has nothing to be Jealous of a fake body? You get your facts straight....
@grayfox007 No, that is your interpretation of what you have seen on a staged reality show. Only MJ knows if it is a fact.
