Crew members from Bravo’s Shahs of Sunset are going on strike and refusing to work until Ryan Seacrest Productions agrees to begin contract discussions.

The move has already delayed the show's upcoming season premiere, which had been set for October 13, but is now scheduled for an undetermined date.

Shahs of Sunset Season Four Cast

The Motion Picture Editors Guild (IATSE Local 700), acting on behalf of Shahs’ non-unionized crew, sent a letter to RSP subsidiary Berne Productions.

After getting no response, the post-production crew walked off the job last week and formed picket line that lasted all day and grew to as many as 30 people.

Receiving union recognition would allow the Shahs’ crew of 20-25 members to receive health care and retirement benefits, among other job security gains.

Reality TV has grown up nonunion as a way to keep labor costs low,” IATSE Local 700 national organizer Rob Callahan told The Hollywood Reporter.

“But there’s an increasing sensibility - the zeitgeist, really - that the folks that do this work are making TV [shows] very lucrative for their employers."

"They want to have the same security as everybody else.”

The Shahs of Sunset are back for Season 4, minus one cast member (Lilly Ghalichi), plus one cast member (Asifa Mirza) and with the same drama we love.

In addition to the casting carousel, we will see the Shahs reeling from something that went down between Mike and GG when they traveled to Turkey last season.

How so? Check out the trailer for the new season below ...

The Turkey trip was designed to bring them closer together.

So much for that. According to GG, Mike tried to sleep with her against her will, and to prove she's telling the truth, she's even willing to take a polygraph test.

Fortunately, there's plenty to celebrate on the show as well.

Reza got engaged, which means a raucous bachelor party when we watch Shahs of Sunset online this fall. Season 4 kicks off October 13 on Bravo.

Here's a look at where we last left things on Sunset ...

The producers of Bravo's Shahs of Sunset have brought on a new girl to replace the fired Lilly Ghalichi, who was shown the door after Season 3. Who is she?

Asifa Mirza, a 34-year-old grad school student living the good life courtesy of her retired ex-husband, Bobby ... who she's reportedly keen on remarrying.

As you can see in the promo screen shot above, Lilly Ghalichi is out, and Asifa is in. Yeah. Should be an interesting season to watch Shahs of Sunset online.

Asifa and Bobby divorced after just 14 months, but recently started hitting it again.

Is there a reconciliation in the offing? Or just more sex and drama and fighting?

Either way, Bravo thinks it will be the big winner in adding her to the cast.

Shahs of Sunset star Lilly Ghalichi has been fired by Bravo in advance of the show's upcoming fourth season, according to multiple reports circulating this week.

The reason? The long and short of it is she's a snooze-fest.

Sources connected to production say that the program has been shooting for months now, and the fashion designer slash attorney has not been in the mix.

One insider described producers' problem with Lilly in one word - "boring" - and said that her replacement has been shooting with the rest of the cast.

For now, the new cast member's identity remains unknown.

With Ghalichi's exit, the Shahs cast now consists of Reza Farahan, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mike Shouhed, and Mercedes "MJ" Javid.

In an event that you'll see soon enough if you watch Shahs of Sunset online, Lilly Ghalichi is engaged to her boyfriend of two months, Dhar Mann.

"Engaged!!!!!!!!!!!" she wrote, along with a collage of the couple's cute photos and, of course, the MASSIVE sparkler that the Mann bought her.

Mann shared the same pic on his Instagram page.

He added the message, "When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

"I know some people laugh when they hear it has only been two months, but I could've told you after two minutes. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you @lillyghalichi."

Aww. Is it getting dusty in here?

Since the news of her engagement started to create buzz on April Fools' Day, she assured fans that this isn't a prank like Bieber getting Selena Gomez pregnant.

We now know how Kim Kardashian and Kanye West kept their Vogue cover shoot a secret.

But Reza Farahan, best known for his role on E!'s Shahs of Sunset, has a theory for how they landed this spread in the first place:

MONEY!

Stopped by TMZ on the sidewalk, Farahan says Kim's spread is some "desperate sh-t" and he believes Anna Wintour finally agreed to it only because Kanye paid her off.

Watch him hilariously go off now, and take note: he has nothing against Sears!

Wintour has shot down any talk that she gave in to any kind of pressure of bribery.
