Is Shahs of Sunset making Jessica Parido out to be the bad guy when it comes to the demise of her marriage to Mike Shouhed? She thinks so. On Sunday night, as the latest episode aired, Jessica re-tweeted a viewer’s tweet voicing that opinion and made clear that she agrees with it. Jessica also re-tweeted tweets that criticized Mike for his cheating. While Mike did not tweet about Jessica, he did speak out in regards to co-star Mercedes “MJ” Javid. While MJ explained that she spoke up about Mike’s marriage during a group party because she wasn’t going to take part in his cover-up, Mike continued to express bewilderment at MJ’s outspokenness regarding his marriage.

The latest episode showed Mike and Jessica at marriage counseling. It was revealed that Jessica had moved out of the marital home and back in with her dad. Jessica confided that she lost herself in the marriage.
“When I first met him, I like right away knew we were gonna get married and so literally I did everything to try to prove to him that I was good enough to be his wife. And I effed myself because then I became my own person and I realized, four years later, ‘Oh my gosh, I don’t even know who I am anymore.’ That’s how I feel…I’m to the point where I’m kind of building this wall because I don’t want to hurt anymore.”
Also in the latest episode, the rest of the Shahs cast learned of Jessica leaving Mike. One person who was very outspoken of the latest development was MJ. During a party that Asa Soltan Rahmati threw for her mom, MJ loudly reminded Asa and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi of the news and wanted to continue talking about it, despite Asa and GG telling her to be quiet about it during the party. “His wife left him,” she said repeatedly. When Mike yells at MJ to stop talking about his marriage and none of the other cast members want to talk about it, MJ leaves the party.
In his confessional interview, Mike wondered why MJ was so vocal about his marriage when she has her own issues to work out. In her own interview, MJ said that she didn’t want to have anything to do with Mike’s “bulls**t.” On Twitter, MJ reiterated that she didn’t want to “assist in the b.s. or the cover-up.”
Sorry, not sorry. Not going to assist in the b.s. or the cover up..

In response to one viewer who wondered why MJ got so upset about Mike’s marital problems and said that her reaction at the party was out of place, Mike wondered the same thing.

A previous episode showed Jessica, while preparing dinner, talking about her high phone bill and the outrageous cost of a tea set that she saw in a store. Once at the dinner table, Jessica yells at Mike for constantly checking on his cell phone. He responds that he’s working on his business to support their lifestyle, which he pays for, and the nice things that she has. Mike was then shown talking in his confessional interview about how Jessica has no idea about how hard he works and how much things cost. He added that she brought that expensive tea set. As The Inquisitr reported, Jessica, after the episode aired, tweeted that she never brought that tea set and that Mike didn’t pay her phone bill. She called what Mike said lies.
A preview for next week’s episode of Shahs of Sunset shows that viewers will see Mike Shouhed admit to Jessica Parido that he “screwed up,” now realizes that he just can’t be a provider, that he has neglected and been rude to her, and that he wants her back. Jessica, who filed for divorce in November 2015 after discovering what she said was evidence of Mike repeatedly cheating on her with multiple women, seems to want Mike to admit to cheating on her. When he doesn’t do that, she declares that she’s done.
“Are these the only things you’ve done? [Chuckles when Mike doesn’t respond to that question] F**k my life…Slowly you’ve been dripping on me and I stood there and I acted like a f**king idiot and I didn’t care. Drip, drip, drip, drip, now it’s hurting and now I’m f**king over it.”
