As people continue to stay home to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), many are finding that it means they’re spending much more time with the loved ones they live with than ever before. Even Mercedes “MJ” Javid, who shared an update on her relationship with husband Tommy Feight during the August 1 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, which you can listen to, below.
“During quarantine, when Tommy and I would get in our little lovers' quarrels, I have been known to, over the past four months, to call my family law attorney like, ‘So, what are my rights?’” said the Shahs of Sunset cast member. “And he’s like, ‘First of all, honey, it’s going to cost you five grand just to pick up the phone and call me and file.’ Like, OK!”
All jokes aside, MJ then got super real about what it’s like to make a marriage work during a pandemic, especially as new parents to 1-year-old Shams Francis Feight.
“It is difficult, I’m being totally candid. It’s really a lot of ups and downs that when you’re in a relationship under the same roof, that you’re having completely different experiences during this pandemic and you can have a lack of communication,” she explained.
MJ went on to explain that although they’ve experienced some miscommunications, she doesn’t feel there is any reason to truly fight.
“I sit there, and I’m like, why the eff would we fight?” MJ said, noting that between their busy schedule of working out and taking care of baby Shams, they’ve both got a lot on their plates. “We’re both busting our butts doing our best every single day, and yet, I feel like he wants to divorce me.”
Still, MJ always tries to find a way to calm a heated situation.
“I just tell myself, I’m the woman, to be strong. I’m the woman, I should be practical, pragmatic, be loving, be nurturing, just let him calm down, and we’re gonna circle back tonight, and everything will be cool. I’ll say something loving, and then we’ll get through it,” she said, adding, “That happens, and then, fireworks again.”
