OK, Shahs of Sunset fans (and haters), we had one whole week to recover from Mike Shouhed finally admitting to cheating on estranged wife, Jessica Parido, during vacation in Belize with the rest of the Shahs. While none of us viewers were really surprised, I wasn’t sure how this would play out on the show and was a little annoyed at Bravo for making me wait a whole additional week to find out. As if the local fireworks were even close to as entertaining as the fireworks going off within this group of numnuts!
As we rejoin the Shahs in Belize the next morning, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Reza Farahan are catching up on how the night ended. Asa reveals that after seeing Mike unravel, she went out clubbing with GG Gharachedaghi and Shervin Roohparvar, dancing until the wee morning hours. This fuels Reza’s assumption that GG is faking her rheumatoid arthritis. He’s also not done being two-faced and meddling in Mike’s marital business and slimes his way over to Mike’s room to tell him that he supports him. Mike falls for the fakeness and expresses gratitude that his friends are always there for him, even in bad times.
After a break last week for the holiday, Shahs of Sunset is back tonight with an all new episode.
The cast is still in Belize and still attempting to enjoy the trip despite all the fighting and judgement overGG’s drinking and supposed exaggerating. Mike Shouhedcontinues to feel sorry for himself over driving his wife away, telling his co-stars at dinner that “people make mistakes. Men make mistakes because they think with their dool (penis).” Mike declares that he’s not giving up on Jessica and enlists Asa to help him woo her back.
Jessica took to Twitter to vent about Mike’s delusions. On WWHL he claimed that he only cheated with one person and that it was before they got engaged. Jessica calls B.S. on that. She Tweeted, “Crazy how many people come out of the woodworks once the truth is out. Anyone else?? Come out come out wherever you are.”
Mercedes “MJ” Javid is still trying to process her (supposed) breakup with boyfriend, Tommy Feight, who I am actually starting to miss. There, I said it. Mike Shouhed is quickly losing hope that estranged wife, Jessica Parido, will make an appearance in Belize after an awkward invite from resident sh*t-stirrer,Reza Farahan. Finally, not to be out done in the “drama that doesn’t really need to be so dramatic” category, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi went off on her last ally, Shervin Roohparvar, when he got tired of watching her pound drinks and smoke ciggs and simultaneously complain about rheumatoid arthritis treatments that may or may not be exaggerated.
What made Mike finally confess after lying all season? “I wasn’t lying. I was having marital problems with me and my wife and I was trying to keep it under wraps, but being on reality TV you don’t really have that freedom. Me and my wife are having problems and I don’t want the world to know so I’m labeled a liar. I decided it’s time for me to come clean because there’s so much speculation.”
Golnesa, Shervin, Nima and Mike take an excursion through the rainforest and take a tube tour through caves. Mike tries to unwind and forget about the latest Jessica drama (her calling out his cheating ways).
It’s time to join the Shahs of Sunset for some drama outside of the Sunset Strip – that’s right, it’s cast trip time! But before we take this mess international, let’s see how we got a passport to all this nonsense.
After Asa Soltan Rahmati’s kaftan show that the crew was forced to attend (and only a few ended up watching), the gang heads over to Shervin Roohparvar’s house to drink from red solo cups. Well, almost everyone – Mike Shouhed and estranged wife Jessica Parido are absent after their big blow out at the show. Everyone is talking about what happened and Reza Farahan goes on an incredibly long-winded, misogynistic list of all the horrible names he can think of for women that are involved in the whole Mike and Jessica mess and it doesn’t take long to see where this is going – he’s trying to justify this cast trip to Belize as a way to “help” Mike and Jessica.
This current Shahs of Sunset season is explosive. And I am weirdly invested in the demise of Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido’s marriage. I just want to know everything that went down in this “he said, she said” battle. The infidelity accusations have been popping off. I have no idea who to believe about anything and I just want to figure out how I feel.
And if I’m this anxious about the marriage of complete strangers, I cannot imagine how these two feel. Well, shit is about to even crazier because Mike’s supposed mistress Emerald Wilson-Bey (who wrote the book My Nights with the Shah) has already come out swinging against bothMike and Jessica in a very damning statement.
