Who is Mike Shouhed Dating?
Whether you keep up with Mike Shouhed’s dating timeline or not, the reality TV star has opened up recently to drop some truth about his marital status.
“I am not married. I am single. It’s officially done,” Shouhed told E! News about the divorce being officially finalized.
Mike Shouhed’s Ex-Wife
Shouhed, 38, was married to Jessica Parido, 28, on his reality show, and it showed everything from their first date to their wedding on March 29, 2015 in Los Angeles at the Baltimore Hotel. According to reports obtained by People, they separated on August 1, 2015 and Parido filed for divorce less than eight months later (on November 20, 2015), citing irreconcilable differences.
Why Did They Get Divorced?
After repeatedly denying the rumors and allegations, the True Gold shoe line owner came clean about cheating on his then-wife, Parido.
“You start to have issues, you start to have differences, you start not seeing eye-to-eye about certain things,” he said via People. “We got into that stage in our lives last year, and with all this outside noise, it just added more fuel to the fire.”
“I was in a dark moment in my life and I did something really f—ing stupid, and I regret it very, very much,” he admitted. “So, men, if you walk the walk, be careful, because someone might push you over the edge. And you might fall off that cliff and once you fall, it’s done.”
Mike Shouhed Couldn’t Live in the House
While the exes were only married a short time, they were together collectively for almost a decade, and Shouhed couldn’t bear to live in the house after the split.
“The house that I lived in before was the house that I shared with my ex-wife — it was a house that we turned into a home and there were a lot of memories,” he said to People. “[Living there] was disturbing, and I couldn’t do it anymore.”
So, he decided to move and start the next chapter of his life in a new place in order to make new memories, instead of dwelling on the old. “Me and Reza [Farahan] got together and decorated the house. He’s got amazing taste — very expensive taste. It’s all pops of color and antique furniture from the ’70s — it’s like something out of the movie Blow. I’m proud of it,” he said.
The reality star wished the best for his ex-wife and is now in a better place in his life. He is also more focused than before.
“I’m very happy with my life. I’m proud of myself and I’m proud of the things that I’m accomplishing,” he said. “I finally was able to change all my: ‘Oh my God, I’m getting divorced thoughts to: ‘Okay, I’ve accepted it, now what?’ “I started focusing my energy on working out, on making money, on creating things that I enjoy. That’s what really took me out of that depressed headspace.”
Season 6 of Shahs of Sunset will premiere on Sunday July 16 at 8:00 p.m. EST on Bravo!
