Jessica Parido is speaking out for the first time since filing for divorce from Michael Shouhed.
The Shahs of Sunset star tells ET exclusively that her ex-husband's reps claims that the infidelity occurred before they were married are "not the truth."
"I’m a nurse and I was updating my resume on our computer and his iMessage popped up. I saw messages pop up from before we got engaged up until that present day, July 31," she says. "I don’t know if I knew them or not, but they were very inappropriate messages and there were more than one.”
Following news of their divorce, Shouhed’s rep told ET, “Two years ago, before they were married, Mike made a terrible mistake and cheated on Jessica. She recently discovered a text message and he came completely clean to her. He feels so terrible. Jessica is the most amazing woman in the world."
"It was not just two years and one person, that is not the case," Parido tells ET. "He cheated on me with multiple girls."
Since separating from Shouhed on Aug. 1, Parido says she's gone through a mix of emotions.
"For the first month, I was in complete shock and really depressed, crying in my house all day," she reveals. "And then I picked my stuff up and left. I have gone through worse things in my life…I beat cancer. I’m not going to let some guy get the best of me."
Parido's lawyer mistakenly checked the box requesting spousal support on her Nov. 20 divorce filing, and has since been fired. Parido is not asking for anything from her soon-to-be ex.
"I want to clear the rumor that I am asking Mike for spousal support. I am not asking him for anything," she says. "When I left Mike three months ago, I left with my clothes on my back and two small duffel bags. I haven’t gone back for one thing. I don’t want anything from him. I don’t want anything from him at all. I want to move on with my life. I don’t want a penny from him. That couldn’t be further from the truth. I want to move on with my life and I want to give all my time, energy and love that I gave to him to someone that deserves it, and it’s clearly not Mike."
Parido has not started dating yet since the split, but isn't opposed, she says that while she doesn't "think Mike is a bad person," being on the show definitely affected their relationship.
"They filmed everything from our first date, to meeting his parents, to converting [to Judaism] to proposal to wedding to divorce," she reveals. "So for the last five years, we opened up everything and I definitely know it took a toll on us."
"I do think it got to his head," she speculates. "He felt like he was invincible and could get away with anything, but he couldn’t!"
For now, Parido is just trying to keep everything in perspective.
"I’ve been through worse and everything happens for a reason," she concludes. "I will be fine."
Ahead of their wedding, Shouhed told ET in March that he was ready for the commitment of marriage.
"I committed to this project three years ago, good, bad, the ugly," he said at the time. "This was something that was real in my life and I wanted people to see the evolution of myself and my relationship."
