It’s happening! Shahs of Sunset hunk Mike Shouhed is posing for Playgirl this morning (Sunday, Feb. 9) in Los Anegeles, at an undisclosed location, he revealed exclusively to gossipdavid.com, moments before he disrobed.
And the genesis of this collaboration lies with gossipdavid.com: Playgirl approached Mike after it got wind of his exclusive Dec. 21 interview with gossipdavid.com, during which he was playfully asked if he would pose for Playgirl, given his buff bod. His response at the time? “I’d consider it.”
Well, fast forward a month a half to this morning, and Mike’s on the phone from L.A. about to disrobe, telling gossipdavid.com, ”This whole thing started as a joke, but then it got serious, and they aggressively pursued me.”
He adds, “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t apprehensive at first. It something that’s going to be around for ther rest of my life. The world is going to see that Persian men can be heartthrobs and sex symbols.”
Mike said girlfriend Jessica Parido was with him at the shoot. “She’s here to help me — Jessica is the official fluffer,” he said, laughing. “She’s been totally supportive.”
Mike said of the shoot’s location: “We’re shooting at an undisclosed location. It’s not a [photo] studio.”
Considering it’s Playgirl‘s 40th anniversary, Mike said he and Jesssica are “honored” that he was asked to pose. (Playgirl is now online only).
As for what he will show, Mike promises, ”you’ll definitely see my butt…I’m going to blow everyone away.” But will he go full-frontal? You’ll have to wait and see.
So has Mike’s Shahs costar Reza Farahan eager to pose for Playgirl? Not quite. Says Mike: “Reza is not ready for Playgirl, but he’s training hard.”
And how have Mike’s parents, conservative Persians, reacted? “They’re pretty cool and supportive about it. Them being Persian and Jewish and being somewhat OK with it, s pretty amazing.”
Mike’s also very grateful to his fans: “I love the tweets I’m getting from all my fans in support of what I’m doing. I love them all for being so cool with me, I definitely want to thank and give a shout-out to my friends and family for being so supporice of me.”
