Mike Shouhed started Season 7 of Shahs of Sunset single and looking for the next Mrs. Shouhed. Following his divorce from ex-wife Jessica Parido in 2016 after nearing eight months of marriage, he expressed interest in Dr. Mona Vand but soon found they had some major differences. He then resumed a relationship with Morgan, a 25-year-old woman he met at the gym. With high expectations as well as a desire to please his family, it can be a tall order for Mike to find "the one." In a recent episode of Shahs, Reza Farahan said, "Mike wants to please his mom, except he doesn't like the girls that are going to please his mom. He likes girls with giant fake titties and hair down to their tramp stamp and big, puffed-up lips and at some point, he has to be like, 'Mom, I like dating hoes.'" (He also had more to say about Mike's dating life on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen — check out the clip above.) When The Daily Dish podcast asked Mike to respond to Reza's comments, Mike said: "I think Reza speaks like he knows as a matter of fact but he's just a comedian and he talks a lot of smack."
In fact, Mike describes himself as "hopeless romantic" who "loves to love." "I want to be in a relationship; I want to have children; I want to have little Mikeys running around," he confirmed. "I never want to get divorced again. I went through it once and I went through a really bad depression and I don't want to put myself, my family, her family through that ever again. So I'm being more responsible now."
When asked whose relationship Mike would like to emulate — Reza and Adam [Neely]'s or Mercedes "MJ" Javid and Tommy [Feight]'s — Mike said, "I love them both so much and I love their relationships so much and I love Tommy and I love Adam ... I'm different. The way I operate is completely different than their relationships ... I like their relationships but I have my own style of doing things."
Despite their differences, the marriages of his close friends may be influencing him even without him realizing it. "I think I'm gonna be the next one to get married," Mike revealed. "I'm ready. I'm ready to be a dad."
