Former cast members include Neelufar Seyed "Lilly" Ghalichi, an entrepreneur and blogger that other characters describe as a "Persian Barbie" who founded a lingerie-inspired line of swimwear known as "Swimgerie" that later merged with another swim line to become Have Faith Swimgerie; and Sammy Younai, a residential developer in Beverly Hills specializing in building multi-million dollar homes.
There was a significant delay in the filming of season 4 of Shahs of Sunset after Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP) and Bravo denied the show's post-production crew a union contract. The crew went on strike and later was fired by Bravo. Eventually, RSP "ratified a union agreement, ending the month-long strike." Season 4 of Shahs of Sunset premiered on Bravo on March 2, 2015.
