Lilly Ghalichi

Lilly explains why she chose not to drink on the trip and what she thinks of MJ's pill popping.

on Jan 6, 20130

The argument quickly turns to an accusation of MJ being a “pill popper”. I realize Asa threw it at her quite rudely, but the reality of the situation is MJ’s friends are worried that she may have a real problem abusing prescription drugs and alcohol. I don’t even know MJ that well, but in less than 24 hours I’ve already witnessed her take an Ambien in the middle of the day and then drinking on it instead of sleeping. Oh boy, this is getting heavy. .  .

I tried not to get involved in the argument and finish my dinner instead, Mike is lucky he missed out on this one. The night isn’t over yet, tune in next week to see what happens.

Lilly: First, I think you are absolutly beautiful! I don't normally get a chance to watch a lot of television but I was flipping around and found your program and could not take my eyes off you. I was not sure how to contact a television star so, I thought I would try your blog. I assume and hope that you read these blogs. I'm so impressed with you and your business spirt being that your a lawer and that you design gorgeous bathing suits and run your company is very, very impressive. You need to forget that old bf and get with a real man that can be in a committed relationship and that is ready to be married. Please let me know how I can spoil you for dinner or a drink. I would truly enjoy showing you how a real man should / could treat you like a queen! I have a home in Houston (your home town) and a lake home at lake Conroe where you are welcome to show off your famous bikinis anytime you would like. (Ha ha) I currectly am living in NYC and I am planning to move for just a year or so to either Oklahoma or Kansas to set up a distribution center for my company. Anyway, I hope to hear from you so I can learn even more about you. Respect and love, Reece ricreece@hotmail.com

Lilly, You are mean spirited and think you are so much better. Maybe you should get the twig out, instead of being on your high horse. Take off a layer or two of the makeup, tone down the hair and wear some appropriate clothes with your fake boobs before judging others so much. Your behaviors are just rude. Others may misbehave and even apologize and you think you still can sit in judgement? Get a real life.

Lilly,

Don't listen to the haters. Stick with your convictions. I think that in most circumstances on the show you've behaved like a lady when those around you have behaved like adolescents. I like that you don't respond with cattiness when someone like MJ is mean-spirited. You just smile and continue being your pleasant self. I wish more people on the housewives shows behaved like you. It really shows what a person is made of. Either someone is a nice person and they remain nice even when those around them are mean, or they're an empty vacuum inside and mirror the behaviors of those around them. You seem to remain cordial and respectful even when those around you aren't and that tells me you have a solid core.

You should've waited to make your toast. Although sincere, it came across as attention grabbing. I'm sure MJ would've appreciated the compliment a lot more if it was given one on one. I hope you are a kind person.

I don't understand why it bothered you or you got offended why MJ called you an acquaintance and not a friend. I think you would be the first to agree you 2 are not friends.  Don't know why you decided ot cause so much drama.  I think you are very intelligent, you have to be in order to have a law degree and also start a business.  That being said there is a huge difference between being book smart and having common sense.  You are very book smart.

 The show captured the unflattering episodes with  drinking  and you mentioned in your blog about social responsibility for alcohol. Thanks for the positive message.

I commend you for being poised in your responses to MJ.  Unlike most, not drinking the MJ Koolaid.  She's been rather catty and mean-spirited towards you and I was wondering when you were going to fight back.  You might want to beware of this group, they don't seem to be your cup of tea.  To be frank, I think you have too much character to be on a show like this.  This is about a bunch of ppl who think they're in their twenties, love to party, drink and cause chaos.  You seem above that.  You have tried with MJ, now let it go, she's not worth you tripping over yourself trying to be nice to her.

On the episode that MJ was accused of pill popping.....  You and ASA were the ones that started that fight...   I thought you would be a calming force in this mess but it is turning out that you, Reza and Asa are becoming the mean kids.   You say some nasty things and think they are cute.   Reza is becoming a person no one is liking this season too and Asa is showing her true colors lately too.

I'm a therapist and I think you could use some time on someone's sofa....You are NOT a nice person and that makes you very ugly...and PLEASE, I beg you.,  Just nod or smile, my friends and I can't stand to listen to that voice of yours or the nasty things you say........You talk mean about  the most beautiful person on the show, MJ,  hands downt. which also makes you look ugly ..Looks are not forever, if you are lucky they last till your 40's, and I figure you are already there.....So listen, if you want an appointment for therapy, before it's to late and your looks are gone,. please call another therapst....It would take a life time to work through that big head........or big hair....don't you know that big hair look went out in the 80's......................

Lilly - MJ is just jealous of you. Ignore her and just keep being nice to her. You realize what is going on and you can be the bigger person.

 

I don't drink either (I did when I was younger.)  I feel a lot better physically when I don't drink. But I get the same reaction you do. My not drinking makes all the drinkers around me uncomfortable. It is really not fun to watch everyone around you get wasted and start behaving badly.

 

I understand exactly what you thought about Mexico. I don't think it is fun to stand around a crowded pool in the sun with a bunch of drunk people.

I was excited to see a new cast member this season, believing Bravo was building the brand. I have changed my mind though. You appeared sweet at first, but now come across as a complete fake who could care less about the life long friendships being destroyed around you. I found your reaction to be inappropriate during a sincere moment and you were the catalyst to the entire argument. Please go back to TX before you destroy this show.

To be fair, MJ was a bit hard on you,Lilly initially. I think it was a build up of letting too many things slide with MJ after all the digs MJ threw at you. We can say that MJ is hurting your career by accusing you of sending inappropriate tweets. Still can't understand why MJ didn't just give you a chance from the get go. I think you two have much in common by being two successful and respected women. Would love to see you two get along and hope you all the best. My mom's neighbor is a Lebanese woman named Lilly who was a career lady and would give the shirt off her back. She is ALWAYS well put together and so lovely! I guess I just connect you to my Lilly. Much love and thank you for allowing us to share a bit of your interesting life.

Lilly you AT FIRST came across as stuck up-BUT NOW, I have a change of heart, you are classy and I love how you have a head and your shoulders and know better than to get stupid drunk on a trip with cameras following you. You own your stuff and yes, people are gonna hate on you, why wouldn't they!?! You are fabulous in your own way-so what if it means fake books, fake eyelashes and hair! At least you own it, that is what made me take a second look at you! If you we're sitting there pretending everything was 'natural' and you are just a victim-then I would have an issue, but your just keeping it real, I like that. Unfortunately us women are caddy, I never understood why we can't build more of a sisterhood among us and celebrate each other instead of trying to put one another down. I would be the first to see you or any fab woman on the street and compliment her on her make-up, outfit etc. Take note of my user name, I am a FABULOUS 41 year old mother of two little boys-that may seem ancient to some of the shows demographics, but I love watching you keeping it classy. I agree with a post about trying to ease up on the perception of 'stuck up', I live by the rule of... "There is a fine line between arrogance and confidence." Own your stuff while trying to be humble...VERY difficult balance, but if you can master it, your career and business are going to skyrocket...

Umm, actually no one will respect or believe anything Asa or Reza says because they repeated something their friend told them to an "aquaintance". Let's be real... your hair looks silly in most episodes. It was a harmless dig and you made those digs too about MJ's weight. Seriously, how can you defend their actions towards someone they've been friends with for years?!

I live in Austin and I find her a LOT stuck up. I agree with the poster who said it is no wonder her bf remains in Houston to be away from her. He has known her ten years. Even he cannot stand to be around her. You have all this hair around your face and none down your back while it goes 4 inches up in the air. Your makeup is so caked I dust my tv screen when you come on. Let go; the 80s are over.. and you weren't alive

Hi Lily I live in Houston and I feel that you are a little stuck up, but with the people that you are on the show with maybe that why you feel the need to act like that. Be true to yourself and it will be okay. Stop acting so stuck up because here in Houston we don't like that. We are down to earth people even if we have money we don't act stuck up

So far I cannot find one redeeming quality about you. As previous posters said, "snot" and "snob" are apt descriptions. And I have to mute the TV anymore because your nasal voice sends me up the wall. Your sister has a normal voice, I cannot imagine how you developed that nasal, condescending tone. Hope you aren't invited back next season.

Lilly, you are boring and rude.  If you don't drink, then don't ruin every party for everyone around you.   

 

No wonder your man of 10 years doesn't want to be around you.  You are mean and self-centered.  Go away!

HOW THE LORD DOES LILY KEEP GETTING A PASS FOR HER UNWARRANTED COMMENTS. LILY HAS BALANCED OUT THE SCALE WITH MJ. The fact that she says she needs diet pills her dress is to small you can buy her life she's fat blah blah blah blah. If she was the victim she would simply shut her tiny head up and excuse herself when MJ tried to condescend her. Instead she goes for the jugluar as well, so theres no where in this case that Lily is innocent too. This heifer fights fire as well people! 

 

But anytime during any conversation (MJ present or not) she talks and speaks her opinions as if their FACT on MJ&Rezas situation etc.. I'm not excusing MJ being rude and tacky by far. But Lily is no wallflower. In this gun fight their both cocked loaded and ready to go. (lowkey I'm wanting to see MJ come out on this one on top) I just love the underdog..

Lilly...kudos to you! I think you are completely unexpected and handle yourself well. I will be buying one of your cute swimsuits and coverups. Also, I am not sure if MJ was taking a dig at you or not, she could have meant no harm because it was the truth, but that would be the only time that I would say I think you could have let that dig slide if it was one.

 

Other than that, I love watching you and I think you are great and fun to watch!

 @khymele I agree with you about MJ calling her an acquaintance. It was appropriate and everyone knows it. But, I have yet to see anything that tells me Lilly's intelligent or book smart. She comes off as immature and stupid to me. "Crotch juice?"

 

For all I know, she paid her way through school.

@janet.g.davis According to your profile, you have only posted 4 comments. I see that one comment was posted on Asa's blog (bashing MJ and telling Asa she is amazing), one comment was posted on Reza's blog (bashing MJ and telling Reza he is amazing), and now you have the comment posted here for Lilly.... If I had to guess who is the real "Janet Davis" --- I'd look in one of 3 places. Pretty pathetic to be making up code names. We, the viewers, aren't stupid.

 @FlutterBy You DO know dogs are living, breathing creatures of value and dignity, not accessories, right? Any REAL dog lover would be happy if their pet was healthy, not trying to put chemicals or anything on its fur to change its color. Sick and wrong.

@SASSYLEXIS I think you have your shows confused...Lilly is on the Shahs of Sunset.....Lilly is not a housewife from what I have seen....this show is about the life of Persians living in L.A. ... but if she were on a housewife show, i would want her to be on the Atlanta show....she could bring some much needed diversity to that show now that they scared Kim off...

 @KrisJones311 Because I get the feeling Reza is waiting on a commission check for selling her a house. She is still in client status. Think about it..why else is everyone tolerating everything from her and not saying anything..they are not wanting to mess up a business deal. I think MJ is the only one that is not subscribing to the ass kissing.

I think her sister is much prettier because she does not look as plastic as Lilly.  There is nothing wrong with being concerned about your appearance but I think Lilly is obsessed with her looks.  Otherwise, why would she go around looking like a pageant queen everyday.
