Fans shouldn't expect to see Mercedes Javid and her fiancé, Tommy Feight, to tie the knot during Shahs of Sunset season six.
Although Javid looks forward to marrying Feight eventually, she was forced to postpone her wedding plans during filming on season six due to a family health crisis involving her father.
"Fortunately he’s stable now but went through terrible complications, one right after another, when we began filming the season in summer of 2016," Javid explained to The Huffington Post a few days ago. "What a lot of people don’t know was that my dad was the ‘single mom’ raising me. He’s the quieter person not featured on the show."
"Sometimes people want to avoid discussing the subjects that aren’t happy-go-lucky, but this is a reality and everyone goes through it," she continued. "In the past year, I’ve dedicated a lion’s share of my time to hanging out at my dad’s bedside, playing video games with him on my phone and bonding through things we did when I was a kid."
Although a wedding date hasn't yet been set by the couple, Javid is thrilled to be engaged to her dream man.
"Tommy’s so stable you can set your clock by him," she gushed. "I was always looking for time to make me feel better about my choice, but I don’t feel I need that and I don’t think that way anymore. We have long since gotten past the initial phase of our relationship.I am more focused on us just spending time together and having fun, but yes, we are ready to start planning our wedding now that my dad is more stable."
To see more of Mercedes Javid, Tommy Feight, and her co-stars, tune into the upcoming sixth season of Shahs of Sunset, which premieres on Sunday night, July 16, at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
