Both Mike Shouhed and Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi started Season 7 single: Mike and his ex-wife Jessica Parido's divorce was finalized in 2016 after eight months of marriage, while GG and her estranged husband Shalom Yeroushalmi filed for divorce in May 2017 after two months of marriage; as of August 2018, their divorce still isn't finalized. (GG recently told Andy Cohen that the reason for the delay in their divorce is because the two have been mired in figuring out their legal settlement.) Yet just because these Shahs of Sunset friends filed for divorce after relatively short marriages, it doesn't mean their splits have anything in common, according to Mike.
"Golnesa is like this bionic woman who has zero emotion, it feels like," Mike told The Daily Dish podcast. "She's like, 'Yeah, I'm divorced. So what? Eff him. I'm done. Peace.' Me, I was like a child literally in a baby pose crying on my couch, would eat once a day, depressed. So people just deal with their emotions differently. She's a soldier."
Mike thinks GG's reaction to her divorce hints at something. "I don't really think she was in love with Shalom because if you truly love somebody, regardless of how bad they were, you have some downtime. And it's been a while since they got divorced and usually people maybe put up a good front and then break down later on in life, but she's still strong as ever. Like, 'Yo, I'm good. I'm still looking for a sperm donor. Do you know any?' I was like, 'Yo, you should put an ad on Craigslist. You never know.'"
GG and Shalom were engaged in December 2016 and got married in a surprise wedding in January 2017. GG announced in March of that year that she had decided to end her marriage to Shalom, and she officially filed for divorce in May 2017. The couple revealed at last season's Shahs of Sunset reunion that they were committed to working on their relationship but it was reported in January 2018 that GG and Shalom had decided to move forward with their divorce. Since their split, GG has actually outlined her specific requirements for a sperm donor; check those out in the video below.
