Rest assured, when Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes "MJ" Javid posted a pic of herself in white bathing suit posing just like Kim Kardashian did in her own sexy selfie, it was meant as nothing more than an ode to the newly engaged reality star.

"I just think it's another opportunity to celebrate a real figure, self-confidence at any size, any shape," Javid tells E! News exclusively about posting the pic. "It was a spoof. I'm a huge fan of Kim."

The cast of Shahs of Sunset are certainly no stranger to nudity; castmember Mike Shouhed even posed for Playgirl this year!

"I thought it was hot, I'm still waiting for my commission," Javid joked.

Season three starts tonight, and Shouhed insists it's the "best season, hands down" of the Bravo reality series.

"We're all in really big transitions in our lives. There's so much change that's occurred in us from last season to this season," Javid previewed.

Shahs of Sunset airs Tuesday nights on Bravo.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
