Mike Shouhed and his wife, Jessica Parido, parted ways in August of last year after just months of marriage, and according to a new report, the Shahs of Sunset star recently got his revenge.
Just weeks into Season 5, Mike Shouhed is celebrating after learning Shahs of Sunset has garnered “record breaking” ratings. Shouhed announced the news on Facebook this week and also spoke of his excitement over his new five-star moving company, Royalty Moving.
On April 29, Yibada claimed Mike Shouhed had gotten revenge on Parido with the show’s success, telling fans, “We had another record breaking week for viewership… Our show moved to a new time (8pm) and we still killed it.”

One day later, on April 30, Mike Shouhed shared a more cryptic post on his social media page, which featured a lyric from Beyonce’s new song, “Sandcastles.”
“We built sandcastles that washed away, I made you cry when I walked away and although I promised that I couldn’t stay baby, not every promise don’t work out that way,” read Mike Shouhed’s Beyonce post.
Although Mike Shouhed didn’t mention anyone’s name in his post, many of his fans and followers seemed to be under the impression that he was feeling emotional because the song made him think of Parido.
In November 2015, E! News confirmed Mike Shouhed and Parido were parting ways, revealing it was Shouhed’s past infidelity which prompted his wife to leave him last August. Although Shouhed’s rep spoke to E! News, admitting to the reality star’s misstep, he claimed the incident between him and the unidentified other woman occurred prior to his engagement to Parido. The rep also claimed Mike Shouhed had begged on his hands and knees for Parido to forgive him, but unfortunately for him, she did not. In fact, just days after Parido filed for divorce, she stepped out with her new boyfriend, Karlen Shubaralyan, at a celebrity hotspot in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Mike Shouhed hasn’t stepped out with anyone new quite yet, and judging by his social media feeds, he isn’t focused on dating. Instead, he’s focused on the success of Shahs of Sunset and his moving company.

Earlier this month, Mike Shouhed appeared on Watch What Happens Live where he spoke about his divorce from Parido, as well as how they were getting along.
“We’re separated in the middle of our divorce,” Mike Shouhed revealed to host Andy Cohen, according to The Daily Dish. “In California, there’s a six-month cooling off period… I’m very fortunate. After our problems, I guess, and going back-and-forth being very aggressive with each other, now we’ve become a little more cordial with each other. So we keep in touch. We touch base. Look, five years together, she was 21 when I met her, so we shared a lot of memories in very pivotal years of her life.”
“I love Jessica. I will always love her,” Mike Shouhed continued. “It’s been very hard for us through this entire process. I went through months of depression, and I’ve finally worked up the courage to start dating again, and it’s hard for the both of us because we shared so many memories. I really thought I was going to be with her for the rest of my life, and it just didn’t work out that way.”
