Any fan of Bravo's Shahs of Sunset knows that star Mike Shouhed has come under fire for allegedly cheating on now-wife Jessica. Shouhed stopped by BuzzFeed LA to tell us exactly why these rumors are more fake than a knockoff Louis Vuitton. Want a hint? It involves all the reasons why he loves Jessica.

1. Her bangin' good looks:

My wife is super hot. I remember when I met her, it was this place called Lexington Social House, which is gone now. She was standing in the corner, she was wearing an outfit, and I said, "Wow, she's got the most amazing body." I walked up to her, I just stood there like a creep for a minute 'cause I was like, "Uhh, what am I supposed to say?" And then finally I started chatting with her, we started dancing. I don't know how to dance, I just stood there. And I was like, "Let's hang out, give me your phone number," and the rest is history!

2. Her genuine soul:

Jessica's an RN, which is a registered nurse, and you can't be a nurse unless you really genuinely like people and want to take care of them. I'm the biggest baby when I get sick, and she is there at my beck and call. I lay there, I'm just having a headache and she's rubbing my feet, giving me pills to take, water — I have a full-on lunch in bed, it's really awesome. For a man to have a wife, you really want to have someone who's compassionate and loves you and wants to take care of you, because men are big babies.

3. Her religious beliefs:

She converted for me, which is such a big thing, to give up your beliefs. Neither of us were really religious but I feel if as a married couple you have one philosophy, one belief, then you can be one unit and no one can break you apart. I think it's really cool that we came together and decided, as a couple, to be Jewish, and she teaches me things about the religion, which is totally awesome. We light the candles on Fridays, and just give us a moment to sit there, not so much to God, but to pray to the universe, "Thank you for everything you've given us, thank you for giving us each other, please make our love for each other stronger, and if you are going to teach us lessons in life, make it easy so we can understand it and learn from it and go forward from it."

We say one nice thing about each other every week, which is really amazing and [something] a lot of couples don't do. Just that one thing. I do it every day with her. I text her one thing I love about her — "Babe, today when I saw you smile, I loved it" or "the breakfast you made me today was amazing" — and she tells me the same thing, and it's really cool just to give each other that positiveness.

4. Her tough past:

A lot of people don't know this, but she's a cancer survivor. At the age of 13, she was diagnosed with leukemia. And she spent one year, 365 days, in the hospital in one room where she couldn't have contact with people because her immune system was completely low. She only could bond with her nurses that literally had to get wound up, scrubbed up. She couldn't eat any outside food. So imagine as a 13-year-old, no McDonald's, anything you like, pizza — nothing. You can't have anything. Only eat soups or sterile food that they bring for you. And the craziest part is that they gave her a 20% chance of living. They told her parents, "She's probably not going to survive."

But all of her pictures while she had cancer were smiling. Bald, no hair, chemo'd out, and just smiling, like, "I'm going to survive" — and she did. If it wasn't for her sister giving her a bone marrow transplant, she wouldn't be here today. Her little sister is like my own sister. Anything she wants, she has. I love them both because I didn't just take on a wife, I took on her and her sister, which together are now the person who's my wife.

When she jumped out of the plane [on Shahs of Sunset] she goes, "I'm gonna be a wife!" People thought she was going after a ring. Fuck the ring. She was like, "Oh my god
