As the fifth season of the Shahs of Sunset progresses, tension surrounding the demise of Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido’s marriage plague the cast.
News broke late last year of Mike and Jessica’s nasty divorce — but now, all the drama behind the split is unraveling on Shahs of Sunset.
In a preview clip of tonight’s all-new episode, the crew are on a cast trip in tropical Belize when Mike is confronted by Reza Farahan, Shervin Roohparvar and Asa Soltan Rahmati about the state of his marriage. And like he normally does, he denies the issues in his marriage have anything to do with him cheating.
“People make claims, and after a while, after certain people make claims, she sees it to be true,” he says of his estranged wife Parido, while enjoying some time in the pool with Reza, Shervin and Asa Soltan. “She read a message from a girl, that some girl sent to me — I didn’t even have the number saved,” he adds. “She blew the f— up. I tried to explain it to her, she didn’t want to hear it. And that’s it.”
“That’s what made her leave?” asks Shervin.
“Yeah. At this point, we’re taking a little breather and I don’t know what the f*ck is going to happen,” replies Mike.
Then Asa adds her two-cents.
“Can I ask you an honest question?” she asks hesitantly. “Since you’ve been married to her, have you ever done her wrong?”
“Have I cheated on her? No,” Mike replies. “I don’t know what she believes. … Girls throw themselves at me.”
In a Talking Head, a producer tells Mike that Jessica — who didn’t join the group in Belize — is “telling everyone who will listen that you’ve been unfaithful to her, a lot.” Yikes!
“These are all allegations,” Mike responds. “The entire f*cking world knows I’m married. I didn’t keep it a secret.”
Meanwhile back in the pool, Reza comes right out and tells Mike about his behavior with other women behind Jessica‘s back.
“You’re out with Sherv, and you’re pouring drinks like you’re entertaining these women!” Reza says.
Mike quickly rebuffs Reza‘s accusations.
“So f*cking what? We’re at a club!” he says. “I’m having a good time. What am I supposed to do? I’m not dead. I don’t have a guilty mind, so things that I do I don’t see as being wrong,” he continues.
“It’s not about a filthy mind. You also have very disgusting, flirty,” Reza says, trailing off.
“At some point you’re going to have to face it,” Shervin chimes in.
“I don’t have to face nothing, to be honest with you,” Mike says angrily, before getting out of the pool and walking away.
