'Shahs of Sunset' star Asa talks Diamond Water launch, Persian pride, and more from 'life-changing' season

Fans of Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset know that the drama has been kicked up a couple of notches during the current third season. With two new episodes alone this week, the show that follows a group of Persian-Americans living in Los Angeles tackled both serious and lighthearted cultural issues from homophobia to binge-eating Cheetos. EW talked with cast member and spiritual gangster Asa Soltan Rahmati about the crazy and transformative third season.

“I absolutely love Season 3. It’s pretty much absolutely hectic,” Asa told EW. “There’s a lot of things that are going to be unfolding that’s really, really exciting. This season is so real and it gets more real and raw as we go on. And for me personally, a couple of extremely life-changing things happen for me.”

Three life-changing things to be exact. READ FULL STORY

'Shahs of Sunset' season 3: Lilly on what's not sexy, turning 30, and offering a new look at Middle Eastern culture

The Shahs of Sunset are back! After a season full of crazy pool parties, insulting nose jokes, and lots of diamond water, the hit reality show about a group of Persian-Americans living in Beverly Hills — um, excuse me, “Tehrangeles” — returns for its season 3 tonight on Bravo. To get viewers ready and caught up before the drama continues, EW spoke to fan favorite Lilly Ghalichi about the upcoming new season.

“It’s exciting to be the new kid on the block,” said Ghalichi, who joined the cast at the beginning of the second season last year. “It’s sexy.” Ghalichi is definitely no stranger to sexy. The “Persian Barbie” and fashionista is already a business mogul, with her own line of eyelashes and Swingerie, a word she created combining swimwear and lingerie to produce the sexiest pool attire in the world. As for her personal appearance, the business and law school grad thanks her rocking bod to Pilates and spin classes as well as hiking. “I’m naturally a very skinny girl. But I don’t think skinny is sexy. I think even skinny girls need to work out a little so they can have a little butt, look tight, have abs. Pilates is a great way to build lean, long muscles.”

Hopefully, she won’t need too much strength to fight off MJ this season — who, from the preview video for the upcoming season below, still appears to want Lilly out of their friend group. “I think the viewers will be really shocked to see what goes down during that conversation that you got a clip of. As a person, as an adult, you don’t ever want to be somewhere where you aren’t welcome.”

Fans will be welcomed into the drama every Tuesday night, but first Lilly gives EW more scoop about what’s to come.
