Farahan’s post received supportive comments from The Real Housewives of New York City alum Eboni K. Williams and The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Heather Gay.

On Sunday, GG revealed that her ‘hero’ Aunt Maryam was murdered, age 27, for protesting the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s regime in 1981 after they overthrew the Pahlavi dynasty.

‘For two years she was pretty much playing Russian Roulette with her life knowing that at any moment she can be killed, but she would not give up her fight,’ the 40-year-old LA native – who has 1M social media followers – explained.

‘Until one day they captured her and her husband. In those days torture was a common tactic used so they would give up other names of people against the Islamic regime. Either way, they killed you and then the names of the lives lost would be announced daily on the radio.

‘Imagine the entire country listening to the radio to hundreds of names being read out like a grocery list and you’re praying one of those names is not someone you love.’

GG continued: ‘I am fighting the same fight she died for. She simply believed that all humans deserve their basic human rights. Her name was Maryam. Say her name! #WomenLifeFreedom.’

The Intimately GG owner received supportive comments from her former castmate Lilly Ghalichi, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jennifer Aydin, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Jennifer Gimenez.

Mahsa Amini was badly beaten before she died, age 22, from a heart attack on September 16 while in ‘morality’ police custody after being arrested for ‘improper hijab’ wear in Tehran.

Bravo announced in April that Shahs of Sunset was canceled after nine seasons spanning 2012-2021.

That gives GG more time to spend with her two-year-old son Elijah Javad, whom she conceived via sperm donor, as well as her three businesses and podcast Genuinely GG.
