Is Mike Shouhed's New Home a Dating Hotspot Thanks to Reza?
The #Shahs pal dishes on the bachelor's new pad.
Now that Mike Shouhed is single again, the Shahs of Sunset bachelor has turned to his friend for some help with his bachelor pad. That friend in question is none other than home decor maven, Reza Farahan, who has been putting his touch on Mike's place.
"Well, he just moved into a new Hollywood Hills home. He has asked me to decorate it for him and we're almost done. The place is going to look spectacular and he's been having bitches come over to like [hang] and stuff," Reza told The Daily Dish. "He's like, 'Rez, girls come over and they're like, who did this? Whose place is this?' Because no straight man would make a place look this great. And he's like, 'Well I have a decorator.' I don't know if he's dating, but I know he's f***ing — a lot."
So what about Mike's home has left everyone gushing when they come over to Netflix and chill? "Here's my tip, when you're decorating you cannot go to one place and buy everything from that place," he said. "What I'm doing for Mike is I'm mixing, 'cause he gave a budget to work with. I'm mixing vintage mid-century modern pieces that I'm buying [online] and in local stores with less expensive things from CB2 and West Elm. I'm buying him great '70s art, knick knacks, Jonathan Adler pieces. So it's gong to look like he's collected these things for a really long time."
As for Mike's dating life, Reza thinks that he should be having some fun after his lengthy relationship with Jessica Parido. (They dated for several years before marrying in March 2015 but ultimately announced their divorce last November.) "Homeboy needs to chill out. He needs to cleanse himself of that toxic Jessica energy and then once he's clean, then open himself up to a serious relationship," he said. And what kind of girl would he like to see Mike with? "Persian, Jewish. Don't try and reinvent the wheel. Do the thing you know you need to do to be happy."
Still, Reza says, it hasn't been easy to watch his friend deal with the fallout of his marriage ending. "It's definitely not rewarding [being his voice of reason]. I don't feel great about it. I wish that things had turned out differently for Mike," he said. "And I wish that they had waited through that ugly period because there were all these accusations and issues that were coming up for them and instead of dealing with everything, they kind of just rushed and got married as fast as possible. And then show how they assumed once they got married, those things would vanish — which obviously didn't happen and unfortunately they're getting a divorce."
