As we now know, Shahs of Sunset star MJ Javid lost her father, so it’s interesting to now watch this new interview with her on The Tomorrow Show and see the way she handled questions about her father and her wedding without revealing that he had passed away several months ago. During the interview she also shared her thoughts on Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer. MJ declared her the rudest Bravolebrity she’s encountered. You’re all super shocked, right?
MJ didn’t come right out and share that her father had passed away, that news broke a few days after this interview was taped. Instead, she just shared that he wasn’t “able” to walk her down the aisle when asked about her wedding to Tommy Feight.
“He was not able to walk me down the aisle because unfortunately the day after Christmas he got really sick and he had been really healthy for a really long time. For like a year he was in pretty stable health. It’s definitely part of the reason why I think I kinda tapped out emotionally, cause, and I, sometimes you kinda catch a glimpse of yourself when you’re not noticing and I definitely think there’s a sadness that is undeniable because there are things like that, that weren’t able to pan out. And, you know, I definitely didn’t want my sadness to sort of ink into everybody else’s day.” She added, “I’ve been incredibly dedicated to my father since the day I was born and when he wasn’t feeling well I was 100% by his side, everything else fell to the periphery.”
MJ also shared that the ring that was her wedding band was the ring her dad gave her mom Vida on their wedding day. She also talks about her sadness that her dad wasn’t able to come to the cemetery on the day that Tommy proposed to her because he wasn’t well enough and the wheelchair wouldn’t have made it to the spot they were filming.
When asked about other Bravo stars she has encountered, MJ shared that she adores Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley but doesn’t feel the same about Ramona Singer. “Ramona’s awful. She’s really rude to people. We’ve shot things like Summer By Bravo and she’s just.. It’s become kinda a comedic thing now where she doesn’t acknowledge people. She sees everyone as beneath her. She doesn’t remember anyone’s name who she’s met a million times. I mean, I think that sucks, you know? When do you ever want to make someone feel like shit who ranks in some professional lower tier? Like, you want to lift those people up.” She added, “I would never take her personally. I just, I observe it.”
She then praised NeNe Leakes, sharing “NeNe always like to carry herself way above anyone else in, on the network, so I, I also observe that. Like, I don’t have any hate for it. I just think it’s; you know, like, OK, you were a stripper, now you’re Bravo’s, you know, favorite. She comes up with the zingers and the quippy lines and she probably has the most interesting things… you know, like, ‘close your legs’ and all those really funny one-liners. So, I just observe it.”
