Viewers have blasted Mercedes Ã¢â¬ÅMJÃ¢â¬Â 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, Ã¢â¬ÅI am not ashamed of my body.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅSkinny is not appealing to me,Ã¢â¬Â MJ admits. Ã¢â¬ÅIf I were to admire another womanÃ¢â¬â¢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.Ã¢â¬Â So which celebrity does MJ think has the ideal physique? Ã¢â¬ÅSofia Vergara!Ã¢â¬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.
Ã¢â¬ÅWhen I first moved to LA, I went to an internist who told me I was really overweight, and he actually prescribed diet pills,Ã¢â¬Â she tells In Touch. Ã¢â¬ÅI 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.Ã¢â¬Â
At the end of the day, MJ admits to having Ã¢â¬Åa love-hate relationshipÃ¢â¬Â with her body, something sheÃ¢â¬â¢s come to accept.
“I am not striving to be thin,Ã¢â¬Â she admits. Ã¢â¬ÅThe only person that I really want to please is myself.Ã¢â¬Â
OMG I have a love-hate relationship with this show. Okay, I really love it.
