Before Asa Soltan Rahmati (pictured right) left her full-time role on Shahs of Sunset in 2018, she might have been the poorest cast member. Some reports claim the Iranian-born singer is worth just $250,000. Other claim she’s worth a cool $3 million. Either way, the she’s worked for everything she had. Unlike some of the other cast members (ahem, GG), Rahmati doesn’t come from money.
In a blog post for Bravo, the reality star admitted that she’s been supporting her parents since she was in her early 20s.
“We are a very very close knit family … all money is OUR money,” she wrote. “And if there is no money, you better believe that I am laser focused on getting it. Since my father lost his business a few years ago, it got more serious, and I more than ever realized that I want and need to make a lot of money and really take care of them. My father doesn’t have a retirement plan or anything like that.”
So, how does Rahmati support her parents? The star bought a property in 2003 that tripled in value. She rents it out, which she claims is her “main source of steady income.” She also has a line of alkaline water called Diamond Water, but seems to have floundered in comparison to blk., a similar product produced by fellow Bravo stars, the Manzo brothers. As of this writing, Rahmati is also focusing on crafting kaftans, halter dresses and swimwear.
