Viewers have blasted Mercedes â€œMJâ€ Javid for flaunting her curves, but the Shahs of Sunset star isn’t interested in slimming down.
The real estate agent, who varies from a size 8 to 10, exclusively tells the magazine, â€œI am not ashamed of my body.â€
â€œSkinny is not appealing to me,â€ MJ admits. â€œIf I were to admire another womanâ€™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.â€ So which celebrity does MJ think has the ideal physique? â€œSofia Vergara!â€
While the Shahs star tries to eat right and get to the gym for 40-minute cardio sessions as often as possible, MJ refuses to go to extremes when it comes to her diet.
â€œWhen I first moved to LA, I went to an internist who told me I was really overweight, and he actually prescribed diet pills,â€ she tells In Touch. â€œI 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.â€
At the end of the day, MJ admits to having â€œa love-hate relationshipâ€ with her body, something sheâ€™s come to accept.
“I am not striving to be thin,â€ she admits. â€œThe only person that I really want to please is myself.â€
OMG I have a love-hate relationship with this show. Okay, I really love it.
