‘Shahs of Sunset’ Star “MJ” Bares All in a Bathing Suit, Says “I Don’t Want To Be Skinny!”
In Touch magazine sat down with the cast of Shahs Of Sunset for an in depth interview. Here Mercedes ‘MJ’ Javid speaks to them about her weight and body image.
The real estate agent, who varies from a size 8 to 10, exclusively tells the magazine.
“I am not ashamed of my body. Skinny is not appealing to me. If I were to admire another woman’s body type, it would probably be someone who is very curvaceous and slender in the right places. I think men tend to like it better. When I first moved to LA, I went to an internist who told me I was really overweight, and he actually prescribed diet pills. I went to school and was shaking and having a hard time concentrating in class. I lost weight, [but] it was definitely not a healthy way to do it. I am not striving to be thin. The only person that I really want to please is myself.”
MJ does tell the magazine that Sofia Vergara has the ideal physique.
