Shahs of Sunset's Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi's 6-Year Battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis – and Why She 'Turned to the Bottle'

When Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2010, she brushed it off – after all, how serious could an illness she'd never heard of be?
As it turns out, very – and now, six years later, no one knows that better than the Shahs of Sunset star herself, who for the last nine months has been undergoing a combination of infusion and chemotherapy to treat the auto-immune disease – a chronic inflammatory disorder that largely affects the joints as the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's tissues.
"It's very confusing when you've never heard of a disease before and all of a sudden you're supposed to in one second accept that you have it," Gharachedaghi tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview. "I can't lift things the way a 35-year-old should be lifting things. I can't hold my phone for long periods of times without my hands going numb or shaking. I can't sit in the car for too long."
"You're tired all the time," she adds. "It doesn't matter how much you sleep – you're always tired."

During a recent sit-down with PEOPLE Now, Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga spent some time breaking down New Jersey lingo and defining some seemingly odd words for viewers.
If you were ever curious what a "Taylor Ham" meant, the pair's definition for the cuisine is a "pork based processed meat you put on your egg sandwich."

Frankel, 45, took to her Bravo blog after Wednesday's Real Housewives of New York City – in which de Lessep's new fiancé Tom D'Agostino, Jr. was very much the hot topic – to address the drama.
"I can say many things but one I am certain about is that no one is jealous of LuAnn's relationship with Tom," wrote Frankel. "At this point, we are really hoping it is real and that Luann is happy, but no one is jealous. Fact."

When you put two O.G. Real Housewives of New Jersey stars back together, sparks are bound to fly – and no one knows this better than Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice.
"Teresa and I have a roller coaster friendship," says Laurita, 46, in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "It's a love/hate relationship. Not all people will understand it."

Southern Charm's third season has seen its fair share of drama – from Craig Conover's ill-timed confrontation of Whitney Sudler-Smith to the dinner party that ended before the salads were even served. But one thing that was consistent? Landon Clements' and Kathryn Dennis' ongoing feud.
In a sneak peek at part 1 of the reunion, tensions are just as high as when cameras left the battling beauties at the Founder's Day Ball in the finale.
Clements admits that she regrets and apologizes for not inviting Dennis to Shep Rose's birthday party, but Dennis doesn't let things lie there.
