The untold truth of Shahs of Sunset

Lilly Ghalichi left Shahs of Sunset after Season 3, but there’s a lot of speculation about what led to the self-proclaimed Persian princess’ departure. It seems like absolutely no one can agree — from her cast mates to the tabloids to the star herself.

Ghalichi, who got married in 2017, isn’t really so close with her former cast mates. The star reportedly snubbed a few of them from her wedding guest list, but it’s not surprising considering what’s been happening behind her back. After TMZ first reported that Ghalichi was fired from the series because she was boring, Javid quipped that it was actually because she was a fraud. “It was inevitable … you gotta be real to be on reality TV,” Javid told TMZ. “I think [Ghalichi] is very interesting, but I don’t think she was herself, and that’s why she’s not on it.”

Ghalichi, however, had a few different takes on the situation. First, she claimed that she’s the one who quit the series, telling Bravo’s The Daily Dish that she wanted to focus on her various businesses. A few years later, in a podcast interview with Nik Richie (via Pop Dust), she owned up to a little additional drama. “I didn’t want to be a part of it anymore,” she said, adding, “It’s a very hostile, negative thing to be a part of it and I’m just not emotionally equipped for it.”

Tragic details that have come out

Dealing with a serious medical issue can be tough, which is why it’s pretty upsetting that some fans initially didn’t believe Ami Brown’s cancer battle. It all started when Ami was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in April 2017, a heartbreaking ordeal that she described to People as “so dark.” But after receiving radiation and chemotherapy treatments, the matriarch learned in January 2018 that she was cancer-free, a miraculous feat given that she only had a “three percent chance” of surviving the disease. 

Ami’s happiness was short-lived, however, once rumors started circulating that she had made up the diagnosis. “I called it on Twitter that Ami wouldn’t die cuz she never had cancer,” one person tweeted. Someone else said: “I mean it’s ALL FAKE even Ami’s cancer scare was scripted.”

The backlash eventually became so intense that Ami’s doctor released a statement confirming her medical records, telling People in March 2019: “Amora Brown was diagnosed with Stage III non-small cell lung cancer in April 2017. Treatment for her cancer included a four-month course of chemotherapy with radiation. Her disease responded well to the treatment, and, according to her UCLA oncologist Dr. Deborah Wong, she is now in remission.”

Although it’s nice to see that Ami’s doctors stood up for her, it’s sad that they had to do so in the first place.

The untold truth of Joel Embiid’s girlfriend

Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard ended the Philadelphia 76ers season with a buzzer-beating dagger in Game Seven of the 2019 NBA playoffs, leaving Philly’s all-star center Joel Embiid in tears. As Embiid walked off the court after the heartbreaking loss, Anne De Paula was waiting in the Scotiabank Arena hallway to offer her 7’1″, 250-pound boyfriend a shoulder to cry onNBCS Philly sports anchor John Clark tweeted a video clip of the tender moment, captioning it: “Joel Embiid is in tears after the game with his girlfriend. He gave it everything he had. 45 minutes. Nobody played more.” 

While fellow NBA baller Allonzo Trier and a 9-year-old Sixers fan praised Embiid for revealing his softer side, former Philadelphia Eagles’ football great Seth Joyner wasn’t impressed, tweeting: “When you pour you [sic] soul into what you do and come up short, I understand the emotions!! But come on, crying publicly on your opponents and girlfriends shoulder, that’s a bit too much!! Cry in the locker room or home! The world doesn’t have to witness your tears to know you care!” 

Embiid took it all in stride, tweeting: “Hell of a season. Proud of my guys and I appreciate all the support you guys gave us all season long. Extremely disappointed and fell short of our goal but this is the motivation I needed and best believe I’ll be BACK EVEN BETTER AND STRONGER.”

The untold truth of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfrien

According to the Daily Mail, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s mom considers Riley Roberts marriage material. “I love him,’ Blanca Ocasio-Cortez said about her daughter’s longtime beau in 2019. “He is the most loving, supporting person I’ve seen. He helped her tremendously during the election. They’ve been together for four years now, after they reconnected from a college breakup.” 

Alexandra’s first love was reportedly her late father, Sergio Ocasio, who died of lung cancer in 2008. “My father knew my soul better than anyone on this planet,” says AOC in Knock Down the House (via Newsweek) He really made me believe that I had true power in this world. My dad passed away when I was in college. Losing him in a time when you’re just figuring out the world was really hard. I didn’t know up from down.” 

Those seem like big shoes to fill, but Blanca (aka “BOC”) must believe that Roberts is up to the challenge because she hopes to hear wedding bells in the couples’ future. “I know they love children, and they do very well with children from the family,” BOC told the Daily Mail. “So, I hope they get married soon. Although they haven’t told me anything about their plans.’

Whatever happened to Ted Bundy’s daughter?

Rose Bundy isn’t Carole Ann Boone’s only child. She also has a son named James from a previous marriage. According to The Only Living Witness: The True Story of Serial Sex Killer Ted Bundy, part of what made Boone so vulnerable to Ted Bundy’s charms was Boone’s life circumstances when she met the serial killer at work (Yep, the pair were co-workers). Her beloved uncle had just passed away, and Boone had recently divorced her second husband. She was reportedly in a “messy affair with a ‘large, unpleasant man'” (though, there’s probably no way he was more unpleasant than an actual murderer) and was raising James on her own. Basically, it was a perfect recipe for vulnerability — especially because Bundy was reportedly sensitive to Boone’s emotional issues.

Though we don’t know if James was ever around Ted Bundy as a child, we do know he visited the serial killer. According to PeopleJames became a Methodist minister and visited his former stepfather the day before his execution. Today, it’s unclear where James is, if he has a relationship with his half-sister, or if he’s hiding behind a pseudonym isolated from his family entirely.

The most scandalous love affairs in history

When Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher married in 1959, they did so amidst one of the biggest scandals in Hollywood history. After all, Fisher was still married to Taylor’s best friend, Debbie Reynolds, when they began their relationship.

According to Reynolds (via Daily Mail), a year before she married the crooner, Fisher, was warned about him by Frank Sinatra. She ignored the advice, and married the singer anyway. They had two children. Fisher’s best friend was Mike Todd, the man who would soon become Taylor’s third husband. Reynolds would be the Matron of Honor and Todd the best man in that 1957 wedding.

Sadly, Todd died in a plane crash in 1958, and Fisher moved in with Taylor as friendly support. One month later, however, Fisher left Reynolds for her best friend. A year later, they were married. In the memoir, My Girls, Todd Fisher (named after his dad’s best friend, Mike Todd) wrote, “The world was stunned. … Eddie and Elizabeth were vilified. Eddie was declared a philandering, opportunistic loser, and Elizabeth was labelled a bad girl, home-wrecking sl*t. Debbie, the good girl, the innocent, unsuspecting victim and single mum, was globally embraced with love and sympathy.”

What the cast of Breaking Amish looks like today

Mary Schmucker seems destined to wind up “English”. The show documented her struggles with guilt over wanting to leave the Amish, yet Mary snuck off the reserve with Abe and his friends any chance she could. On Return to Amish, fans watched Mary toy around with makeovers, drink booze, and gamble. However, her husband Chester adamantly stuck to his Amish roots, and didn’t want Mary getting shunned. Mary’s biggest fear was that she would be banned from her daughter Katie Ann’s wedding. She can now put that fear behind her.

On May 2, 2019, daughter-in-law Rebecca Schmucker confirmed on Instagram that Katie Ann got married. Mary was not only there, but hosted Katie Ann’s big day. “Yes she is the host as all Amish moms are. She is exhausted but happy to be able to do it,” Rebecca responded to a fan’s comment, asking if Mary was present.

Rebecca added that ex-Amish are not allowed to attend weddings in their community, confirming that Mary must still be welcome in the church. “It’s definitely a pa (Pennsylvania) thing maybe elsewhere, but you are right, my family in Ohio still invites ex-Amish to weddings and stuff,” Rebecca responded to another commenter’s inquiry.

The real question is — how long can Mary withstand the temptations of the “English” now that she watched her baby girl get married? Stay tuned, folks.

Reality TV stars who need to realize they aren’t famous

Watching this reality TV star’s bizarre fall from grace is like rubbernecking at the scene of an accident. Tila Tequila, once a mid-noughties online icon, was once dubbed the “queen of MySpace” by Time. Her social media presence spawned MTV’s A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, a reality TV competition where she looked for romance among both male and female contestants. After the show stopped airing, things went downhill for Tequila. 

First, she sued her ex-boyfriend, NFL star Shawne Merriman, for assault, battery, and false imprisonment to the tune of $1.5 million. He counter-sued, and the duo eventually settled under confidential terms. But this pint-sized celeb apparently had bigger fish to fry — stopping a company from distributing a sex tape of her. According to Radar Online, Tequila couldn’t afford to repurchase the tape and feared it would negatively affect her career, but one could argue that her mainstream popularity was already circling the drain. 

The once-famous influencer has tried to remain active on social media, but her postings have alienated the masses. She claimed she was possessed by Satan, trolled various beauty Youtubers, and made waves for referring to herself as “Alt-reich Queen!” Her Twitter account was suspended in 2016 after she shared a photo of her doing a Nazi salute, so something tells us future red carpet invites may get lost in the mail.

The most uncomfortable Fallon interviews ever

Jimmy Fallon’s 2016 interview with Nicole Kidman didn’t really stand a chance. Things turned awkward when the comedian began laughing nervously right off the bat. In response, the actress playfully rolled her eyes but fidgeted in her seat, semi-jokingly saying, “I so didn’t wanna come back.” While this caused Fallon to hysterically crack up, Kidman pressed on in an attempt to keep the interview on track. “I’m in a new movie, Lion, so that’s why I’m here,” she told the host, who appeared to have plans of his own.

Fallon began rehashing the starlet’s previous appearance on his show the year before … which had been mega uncomfortable in and of itself. At the time, it was revealed that the duo once went out on a date together years before. The problem? The SNL alum totally blew his chance with the Hollywood beauty. After admitting that she’d had a crush on Fallon at the time, Kidman explained that she’d asked a mutual friend to set them up. However, when she went over to the comedian’s crib, he “wouldn’t talk” to her and ended up playing video games for an hour before she gave up and left. With a laugh, Kidman told the embarrassed host, “It was bad!” For his part, Fallon claimed he didn’t realize it was an actual date at the time. But still, talk about cringe.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s tragic real-life story

While Jada Pinkett Smith looks super stylish in headscarves, it turns out there’s a very specific reason she wears them. On — you guessed it — another Red Table Talk episode, she revealed that she’s been struggling with hair loss, and often covers her hair to hide it. Granted, we’re aware that hair loss may not exactly be a “tragedy,” but for Jada, the discovery of the condition was traumatic. “I was in the shower one day, and then [there was] just handfuls of hair … in my hands. I was just like, ‘Oh my god. Am I going bald?’ It was one of those times in my life where I was literally shaking with fear,” said the star.

She also revealed that her hair loss was the reason for her close-cropped, asymmetrical hairstyles. Sadly, even though she’s “gotten every kind of test there is to have,” Pinkett Smith said the reason for her hair loss remains unknown.

Later, she explained in a video on Instagram that she’s been treating her hair loss with “steroid injections,” which according to her are “helping, but not curing” it. And in the meantime, she’s counting her blessings. “I had to put it in a spiritual perspective of like, the higher power takes so much from people,” she shared on Red Table Talk, adding, “And by golly, if the higher power wants to take your hair? That’s it? … When I looked at it from that perspective, it really did settle me.”
