Asa Has Done Some "Soul Searching" to Better Understand GG
The #Shahs designer opens up about her friend's struggle with R.A.
It's been quite the emotional roller coaster on Shahs of Sunset this season. Between Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido's marital woes to Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi's struggle with R.A., viewers have seen the group go through some very difficult issues. And almost no one has felt the heat from the crew more than GG, whose battle with R.A. has been scrutinized by some, including Reza Farahan, who think she might be exaggerating the severity of her illness.
Earlier this week GG shot down those claims on Instagram, and now Asa Soltan Rahmati is sharing her take on her friend's health. "I really feel for GG. GG's like a little sister to me and we've been through a lot together, as you've seen over the years. Her and I out of everybody, it's just been la rough journey. And it started really rough. And it took a lot of soul searching on my part to really go deep in my heart and find a certain place of understanding and compassion for her to deal with the way she was coming at me always," Asa told The Daily Dish. "So I have a special place in my heart for her, always, and I hate seeing her suffer. She's had a rough year, too, [and] what I really want from her is to change her ways."
As her friends have shared this season, GG hasn't slowed down her partying despite her illness, and Asa hopes that her friend will "change her lifestyle cause dealing with something like R.A. is no joke." "This is why some people don't believe it's as bad as she says it is. "It's for this reason, the way she lives is crazy. You can't be sick and do that," she explained, mirroring something fellow Shah Mercedes "MJ" Javid recently shared with The Daily Dish. "She's a smart girl. Her behavior is destructive, self-destructive and destructive to the [others], and she'll be the first person to admit to this," Asa added. "What I want from her is a beautiful life and it's gonna start with healing physically."
