As a GG fan from the beginning of the Shahs of Sunset franchise, I had a really bad feeling about her relationship with Shalom from the start. When she was suddenly engaged in Time Square over the winter holidays, I was just hoping she would not marry the guy. When she got married in a spur of the moment ceremony at the courthouse I was worried for her. An Internet friend of mine had dug up a lot of stuff on her new husband and none of it was good. One of the reasons his last name is never mentioned on the show is because he has a history of using a lot of aliases, allegedly. He had also already been engaged to another reality participant from Dash Dolls and that didn’t end well. He really seemed like a media whore with bad intentions.
It was less than a month later that GG announced she was filing for divorce. In April she called the comps on Shalom because he was lurking around outside her house. In July she started doing a few interviews about her divorce. She told E! that she was sick to her stomach within hours of the wedding and knew right away she had made a big mistake. They were separated within six weeks.
I was expecting for GG to file for an annulment rather than a divorce and it is unclear why that happened. Currently, Shalom is taking legal action to try to delay the divorce and he is asking for spousal support. Shalom is trying to say that their official separation date is last Thursday. When GG filed her papers she listed their separation date as six weeks after the marriage. The separation date will play a role in how spousal support is awarded if it is awarded at all. In California, in marriages less than ten years, spousal support is generally around half the length of the marriage. I would think in this case, a good divorce attorney could keep Golnesa from paying at all. With Golnesa’s date of separation she would only be ordered to pay three weeks of support. If Shalom’s date is used she could be forced to pay for up to three and a half months of support.
I really can’t see a judge asking her to pay for anything. She was calling the police on him two months after they tied the knot. Was there really any real sort of reliance by Shalom on GG during that first few weeks?
Do you think GG will end up owing Shalom support and will she be required to pay his attorneys fees as he is asking?
