shahs of sunset season 6 preview with Mercedes Javid at abc’s mother’s day luncheon

Real Estate agent and reality TV star Mercedes Javid (MJ) had a lot to say about shahs of sunset season 6, all things health, and her plans for Mother’s Day. NEW YOU caught up with her at the ABC’s Mother’s Day luncheon in Beverly Hills this week. Donating is heavy on the star’s heart, she shared, “making a contribution locally is the most important thing, in my opinion, to reach out and touch and make a local impact otherwise you suck or you’re just not a good person.” MJ was happy to support The Associates of Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies because they’ve made such an impact throughout the world. She spoke about her “L.A. pride” and how she loves seeing ABC be so effective since their start in 1985. When asked about what she does to stay healthy, she said two months ago she changed her lifestyle drastically by starting to exercise, eat clean, and consume 98% less alcohol. MJ said she’s not sober yet, “From eating clean, exercising, and knowing everything going into your body is good does become a natural high.” She also takes advice from a wellness guru that claims your body doesn’t technically crave anything that’s out of your system for 48 hours. Hopefully, her guru is right on that one. She never said it was easy though. “At first you want to cry over your bland bowl of greens then three days later you’re like, ‘actually I feel just fine.’ Food for fuel, and then you can find something else to be obsessed with in life.” We know what you mean Mercedes. In the near future, she’ll be doing press for season six of “Shahs of Sunset” and then escaping the world so she doesn’t have to relive the final season. The star claimed it was very difficult living in such close quarters with her mom and fiance Tommy Feight while going through a roller coaster of decisions. The star said, “You see me go through hell!” It should be an exciting season and we can’t wait to see all the drama unfold this summer on Bravo.
