Jessica Parido has been through a lot and with lot means having discovered and informed about a deadly disease that she was suffering with. Her father had informed her, when she was 14 years old, about her condition. She felt broken but she did not let her condition bring her down. She would often tell her parents that she would be okay soon and she has managed to stay true to her words. Recently, she defended her decision to get married to fellow “Shahs of Sunset” star Mike Shouhed when many accused her of being desperate but she has the perfect response for them.
According to KpopStarz, Jessica has defended her choice to marry Mike and has traced her decision back to the deadly disease she was suffering with.
In an interview with People magazine, Jessica mentioned that despite the fact that she was called desperate for wanting to marry co-star Mike, she took the decision in a very short time because she already knew what she wanted. She also mentioned that there was a time when she was not even sure if she was going to make it alive or to the point she is at right now, and for the same reason she thought she was ready for a bigger commitment.
As a child, she was given months to live and had a surgery when she was just 14. After celebrating her birthday at the hospital and recuperating there for almost eight months at the age of 15, she was discharged from the hospital. On her wedding which was short and sweet, Mike Shouhed mentioned that she looked stunning and his rabbi was off the hook. The ceremony was Jewish and he looks forward to having a family with her. He also mentioned that Jessica is the source of wisdom and strength for him apart from learning so much about life from her.
