Mercedes Javid (MJ as she is frequently called) has garnered a lot of attention since she first aired when the series premiered on Bravo. There has been a lot of drama over the seasons regarding her appearance and her love life.
Shahs of Sunset viewers have watched the 46-year-old since the beginning and even they are confused by some of her life choices. Currently, MJ works as a real estate agent in California while living in the Hollywood Hills.
This year was particularly hard for MJ as she lost her dad back in May. The two were incredibly close, especially because the relationship with her mom has been particularly strained. MJ married Tommy Feight back in April, shortly before her dad passed away.
Aside from the obvious challenges of being a woman on television, MJ dealt with comments about her full figure. At one point, she was put on diet pills to help her lose extra weight. All of that eventually stopped, but being on reality television drudged up those issues again.
Currently, MJ is pregnant with her first child with husband, Tommy Feight. At 46-years-old this was a shock to those who haven’t been following Shahs of Sunset closely. Their relationship has been playing out on the show and MJ admitted that the baby was conceived using IVF.
With 2018 coming to an end, MJ has had a whirlwind year. Turning 46 will be memorable if only marked by the first one without her father and the year she will welcome her first child with her husband.
Shahs of Sunset airs Thursday nights at 9/8c on Bravo.
