I keep waiting to do this story because part of me wants Jessica Parido come to her senses. It seems that if she ever does come to her senses she is going to do it much too late. It’s already too late for her face. The poor girl who used to be a natural beauty is now just another plastic-faced girl in Beverly Hills. Another sad story. Another fake relationship. What could possibly be going on with this girl where she would change everything about herself, her face, her religious beliefs, he morals to be with a man who is superficial even by Los Angeles standards. A man who describes his engagement by noting that it involved a four carat diamond ring and her saying she was going to be his wife so “it worked out perfectly.” A plan well executed. The superficial groom and Jessica were in Australia a couple months ago where Mike’s comments included a comment that there are no ugly people in Australia and that Jessica can’t keep her hands off of him. Clearly, Mike is not closer to having any sort of personal insight and growth that most global travelers experience in new cultures than he was in Turkey where the call to prayer transmitting from the mosque had quiet the opposite reaction on Mike as most travelers regardless of religion. Tomorrow, Jessica Parido will become Jessica Shouhed assuming everything goes according to the plan.
Last July, I began to get a number of tips and contacts with very detailed information on Mike Shouhed cheating with women that he met on social media. There were specific hotels mentioned. Hotel staff confirmations. Text messages. It all appeared to be very legit. This was problematic. Shahs of Sunset was one of the first shows I was really excited about when I began this blog. I learned a big lesson by interviewing them prior to the show airing and finding them all charming. It’s best not to get too close to your subject. Especially if they are on a reality TV show you are covering. Because they change (Reza) and it becomes difficult to point out the bad behavior when you like the people doing the bad behavior. And they are all bound to do something that needs calling out. But this wasn’t the same as one of your favorite housewives changing and becoming someone who airs their tampon string in public and becomes violent and generally unlikable in public. This was someone allegedly having numerous sexual encounters with women who are not his fiancé. I did not want to be this messenger. I sat on it for a while and I put out some feelers to sources in production. The show was expected to air last October until a post production editing staff decided to strike for health benefits which would ultimately push the show to its new 2015 airdate. It was made clear to me that Mike’s indiscretions would be a major storyline. It would be public. Everyone was about to know.
So I posted this blind item on Tamaratattles.com and nearly immediately received emails with the subject line: Your blind item about Mike Shouhed. I always forget that when random sources reach out to you, they are probably talking to other sites as well. Thankfully, it was out there somewhere for people to be watching for new stories.
I posted the blind in mid-July and there were things I would not know about until much later. Like the week or so before I posted the blind, Jessica and Mike had a HUGE engagement party. Jessica wore multiple wedding gowns at the party. It was a very over the top wedding reception without the wedding. There was a first dance and cake and the whole nine yards. Everyone was there. Every account I’ve heard of this event, every single one, included the phrase, “over the top.” To me, the timing seemed suspect. Mike had to know the story was about to blow. Remember, filming for Shahs was done. Mike was well aware of the situation with GG. But at this time, I only knew about the random social media girls.
And the random social media girls were not particularly believable to be honest. At first they provided texts between Mike and other women, at that time Mike was involved in a get rich quick pyramid scheme that was mentioned. But the sources seemed a little to eager to have things put out there. Was it just revenge? Or something more? It all became a bit too skeevey for me. I decided to wait a couple months to cover it when the show aired. And then the show was pushed. The timing of this seems incredibly fortunate for Mike. It gives them time to push the wedding up. I am told that the post production strike was just one of those things that happens. A stroke of luck and the two situations were unrelated.
This explains to me why GG is bringing up something that happened a year before taping when she did. If I heard about all the other allegations, surely those close to Mike had heard too. GG wanted to figure out what to do since Mike was about to propose on the show. So that brings us to where we are. There are three more episodes until Mike proposes. Then another three until the skeletons start not just falling out of the closet, but walking into the room.
Perhaps after tomorrow’s wedding in Los Angeles, the couple will fly away from all the media attention and enjoy a quiet honeymoon. But I doubt that.
ON WWHL GG and Reza made digs about something happening with that “Four Carat diamond.” It is supposedly not the ring they are currently using. Also, where I come from, getting married on any day besides Saturday is a sign of someone watching their budget or someone who has decided to change the date and the venue is already booked on the Saturdays in the new time frame. Both the questions about the ring and the venue make me think something is a bit forced about all of this. Is Jessica demanded to be married ASAP? or did Mike want to move it up before all hell breaks loose on the show?
But the big question is why is Jessica willing to marry Mike. He is not a financial catch by anyone’s guidelines. Especially in L.A. Why is she having so many plastic surgeries? What is it that is worth all of this public humiliation? I’ve asked everyone this.
After Mike was on WWHL with Brandi Glanville and Jessica was not with him in NYC and Andy never mentioned the wedding that was only FIVE days away…I thought that the wedding was surely off.
I reached out again to multiple sources. They assured me the wedding was not off. They were unclear on whether the wedding would be filmed. It sounded to me like a partial crew might be there. It is not a filming season for Shahs. It does seem like all of them including Reza would be there. Except for GG who seems really pissed at Mike still.
So why? Why is Jessica doing this? Oddly, it is because she wants the “fame.” This is what I am hearing. She loves the media attention, the name recognition (even though we no longer have a face to put with it) and being on the show. The engagement, the religious transformation, plastic surgeries, the marriage it’s all just part of the plan for her as well.
“Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.”

The thirst is real.
Meanwhile, Mike Shouhed is shit-faced.
