Jessica Parido became famous not just for her wealthy parents but for her vibrancy on the Shahs Of Sunset reality Show. Even more was her romantic attraction to co-reality star, Mike Shouhed. Their love story on Shas Of Sunset is believed to have increased the target rating point (TRP) of the show. The lovebirds got engaged and eventually tied the knot in 2015 with a wedding ceremony that was held at Millennium Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, California. The couple who had hoped to grow old together had their honeymoon in Mykonos, Ibiza and Paris.
Barely six months later, the couple registered that they were having a hard time sailing the love boat with Jessica petitioning for a divorce. Mike was allegedly accused of infidelity with several proofs found on his phone. As much as the story revealed, Jessica had found intimate messages from “the other women”. The divorce processes were finalized in 2017. However, they have been living separately since their marital drama began.
Mike Shouhed is a business/real estate personality and also a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). It was reported that all his attempts to get back together with his reality TV sweetheart proved futile.
Jessica has also been romantically involved with Karlen Chris Shubaralyan. In 2016, the businessman faced a charge of domestic violence against his ex-wife and was consequently sentenced to over 25 years imprisonment. After two failed relationships, Jessica is currently keeping a low profile about her private life.
Throwing more light on Jessica’s captivating personality, the Shahs of Sunset star is a cancer-survivor whose excruciating experience launched her into a new world of confidence. At a young age, she was diagnosed with Leukemia and admitted to Yorba Linda Hospital in California.
Jessica was ready to take on her lead role in a school performance when her parents broke the news to her. The young girl had been consistently experiencing lots of dizziness and weakness. This led to an unexplained weight loss. On breaking the news, Jessica recalls the pain she went through and even much more, her optimism to never give up. She believed the best of the future even when her family feared she had a bleak tomorrow. Her faith saw her through as her sister Kristina was found to be a perfect match for her bone marrow transplant. For her 15th birthday, Jessica spent it in an isolation room where she stayed for the next eight months till doctors deemed it fit to discharge her. Beating the slight survival percentage given by the doctors and her severely affected immune system, Jessica won the battle.
With the strong belief that she has been given a second chance in life, Jessica appreciates life and reaches out to people in need. She was inspired to become a nurse because of the amazing caregivers she had at the time. Jessica is dedicated to the sensitization and impacting of health knowledge to people. In her spare time, she is seen carrying out charitable causes and spending time with sick children.
Jessica Parido has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million. She reportedly has an annual earning of $500 000. Typical of most millionaires, Jessica does live a life of luxury. She has a house in Orange County, California and has a number of exotic cars like Mercedes, Chevy Volt and a BMW. In all these, she still makes a space for the sick and needy in her wealth.
