As we reported with heavy hearts earlier this year, Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores have split.
The 90 Day Fiance couple were one of this season's most likable and they really seemed to have made it ... until they didn't.
Now, both Fernanda and Jonathan are speaking out.
Fernanda has shared a couple of vague posts this week.
"She became silent," Fernanda writes.
"There is no longer any words to describe the absence of emotion within her heart," she continues.
Fernanda adds: "She went from arguing to be upset, now feeling nothing at all."
Is this poetry or something more autobiographical? And is it both?
Later, Fernanda wrote something a little more universal.
"Don't judge someone without knowing the whole story," she advises her followers on Instagram.
"You may think you understand," Fernanda acknowledges. "But you don't."
None of us ever know the whole story about reality stars, but fans are especially in the dark about Fernanda and Jon's split.
She wasn't a golddigger or after a green card -- Jonathan is the first to say that.
As far as we know, they had a dispute, in part over where they should live.
Fernanda spoke angrily and stormed off and Jonathan believes that the things she said can never be taken back.
These latest words from Fernanda are vague.
Last week, Fernanda was a little more direct and arguably a bit more confrontational.
"I don't want to talk about anything about Jonathan again," Fernanda told her followers on Instagram live.
"He's talking a lot," Fernanda acknowledged. "He can say whatever he wants."
"I'm not going to talk about it until I'm ready," she affirmed.
Apparently, she is still not ready to address this fresh wound. It hasn't even been a month.
That is very understandable. Heartbreak hurts.
Fernanda's posts this week were preceded by Jonathan going on Instagram Live to speak to his followers.
"Every marriage has its problems," he emphasizes. "Every relationship has its issues."
"It's all about your attitude. As long as you're positive… [I] gotta take it day by day."
"all of this has happened really fast"
"I promise you, I didn't give up. I gave 110 percent to my marriage," he shared.
Jonathan concludes by explaining: "I reached a point where I said, 'I have to love myself just as much.'"
Jonathan's latest post is actually a throwback to work that he has done in his community in Lumberton, North Carolina.
"I created a nutrition program at the Lumberton Children's Clinic, helping to introduce a healthier way of life to the underprivileged youth," he shares.
"I started the program after realizing the large epidemic of Childhood Obesity plaguing our community," Jonathan explains.
"My intention was to raise awareness by boosting the children's self-confidence," he writes.
Jonathan aimed to help these kids to "improve their eating habits, and experience love in a nurturing environment."
"These children not only face health issues, but are also scrutinized amongst their peers," he acknowledges.
"I realized that I was in a fortunate position to give back," he explains. "And wanted to do everything in my power to make sure I was doing my part."

So this is a thing that has now happened:
Milania Giudice has come out with her very first music video.
The video was released by Bravo on Wednesday night, following many episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey during which the 14-year old continually expressed an interest in pop music.
This isn't so different from many 14-year olds around the country, of course.
But Milania - or her famous mother, who one might think would know better, really - is now under fire for what she actually says and does in the song/video.
Titled "I Can’t Wait To Grow Up," the track features Milania rapping about all the things she's excited to do when she's older.
Such as: covering Vogue magazine, having her own driver and traveling the world.
This is where she stops being like other 14-year olds around the country and starts sounding like a rich and entitled spoiled brat.
Should these really be the priorities or fantasies of a young teenager?
Twitter users aren't so certain.
“THIS IS EMBARRASSING NOW. AND WILL ONLY BE MORE EMBARRASSING IN 10 YEARS. I FEEL FOR HER," wrote one critic online upon the video release, while another added:
She’s gonna regret this video so much in a little while…. Teresa made a big mistake letting her do this.
And then another:
Want to say something positive, but I can’t.
The video includes appearances by Teresa and, somehow, Fetty Wap, along with a spoken introduction that goes as follows:
Hey it's me Milania, I'm sure you've seen me around, you've probably seen me on TV, I'm about to go pick up my besties Tay Tay and Stephanie.
We about to go pop them tags, get our nails done, hair done. We ain't chasing boys, we chasing checks, we chasing dreams, we chasing goals. Big things poppin', little things stoppin'.
There's also at least one reference in here to Joe Giudice, Milania's father who is currently in jail for tax fraud and who is scheduled to be deported this spring.
"My dad.. is the best dad in the world" and "needs to come home," Milania has said about Joe.
Check out her controversial video now.

Colton Underwood's time on The Bachelor is just getting started, but already, production insiders are spilling the tea on this season's outcome.
In fact, it looks we already know which lucky ladies will make it to the final four.
Obviously, major Bachelor spoilers lie ahead, but if you haven't picked up on that already be warned:
Scrolling further will result in knowledge of who receives Colton's final roses.
There are some surprises on this year's list, but fans who have been watching the virginal former football star and his interactions closely will probably be able to predict at least two of the final four.
So without further ado, here are Colton's quarter-finalists (according to Life & Style):
This one is unlikely to shock anyone.
Hannah received the first impression rose, and she and Colton seemed to hit it off the moment they locked eyes.
If you're taken aback that blogger Hannah makes it to the final four, there's a good chance you flunked chemistry in high school.
Little bit of a surprise here, as Tayshia has already stirred up a bit of controversy this season.
She stunned some viewers when she revealed that she got divorced after just 18 months of marriage in 2017.
Many assumed that virgin Colton wouldn't go for a woman who's been down the aisle before, but apparently, he's not as judgmental as some Bachelor fans.
This one's also not much of a shocker.
Caelynn may have turned off some viewers when she wore her Miss North Carolina sash on night one.
But she was also the first to snag a kiss from Colton, so it stands to reason that she'd make it far in the competition.
And what would a final four be without a villain?
Depending on what kind of Bachelor fan you are, this is either the biggest surprise of all -- or it's utterly predictable.
Cassie has been annoying her castmates since the first night, but as longtime Bachelor viewers know, contentious types have a history outlasting their rivals.
We'll leave it up to you to decide if Cassie's staying power is the result of Colton's decisions -- or the show's producers.
So there you have it.
Your the four women who Colton will find most alluring this season.
Now your months ahead of your friends in the debate over why Cassie should have been kicked to the curb the first time she interrupted!

Let's get this out of the way up front:
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are husband and wife.
We're sorry to break it to you, teenage women around the globe, but it's true.
The superstars shocked their fans this past summer when first they got engaged and then, just several weeks later, they stopped by a courthouse in New York City and exchanged vows.
It was casual. It was informal. It was confusing, at first at least.
Did the couple actually get hitched? Or merely get their wedding license?
In October, however, Baldwin confiirmed that she was, indeed, Mrs. Justin Bieber.
Again: we're very sorry, basically every woman on the planet under the age of 25.
It's long been rumored, however, that Bieber and Baldwin were going to hold an actual wedding ceremony, including a giant celebration with family members, friends and loved ones.
According to TMZ, this ceremony and reception is now planned.
Insiders close to the famous couple say that the big day will take place on the weekend of March 1.
As loyal Beliebers know, of course, this is the date on which Bieber turns 25.
Moreover, these second round of nuptials will reportedly take place in Los Angeles; or at least the Los Angeles area.
Why would Hailey and Justin make this decision, considering most of Bieber's family resides on the East Coast or in Canada?
It's simple, TMZ writes: the weather sucks on those regions in late winter! We're not being harsh here, we're just stating a meterological fact.
Lastly, this report emphasizes that the ceremony will be heavily in religious in nature, which does make a lot of sense:
The courthouse wedding was quick and strictly legal, while Justin and Hailey have embraced God and faith more than ever these days.
As for who will be invited?
This may be the most sought-after wedding invitation since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot.
But all we know for now is that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are invited. Which is just, like, okay, sure, whatever.
Once the stars go public as husband and wife, the question will then turn to when Bieber and Baldwin will have children.
They're young, but it sounds as if this may happen in the very near future.
"I love kids," Baldwin told Vogue in November. "I can't wait to have my own."
She didn't elaborate on when this might happen, on when Bieber's sperm will fertilize her egg, but Hailey did say that being a mother is "closer [to] reality" now than ever before.

A normal person would not want their name associated with Bill Cosby. Not in 2019.
R. Kelly is, by every conceivable metric, not a normal person.
The disgraced R&B singer is under criminal investigation, and he's turning to Cosby's "fixers" to keep him out of jail.
RadarOnline reports that R. Kelly has hired the same team of "fixers" that Bill Cosby had allegedly used to try to silence his own enemies.
These would be professionals in a number of fields who might understand how to persuade multiple accusers to go silent or even recant.
"They're ready to do just about anything to get him off the hook," the insider characterizes.
The source continues, noting that these professionals intend to succeed "even if it means using fear tactics."
We're not sure what fear tactics means in this context.
But it could mean intimidation, routine harassment, surveillance, or even blackmail of current or potential witnesses.
The disgraced 52-year-old R&B singer is said to have reached out to these "fixers" after the harrowing documentary aired.
Surviving R. Kelly paints a terrifying portrait of what it is like to be a victim of R. Kelly's alleged sexual predation and his violent sex cult.
Everyone is talking about it, and the public interest and public pressure have pushed law enforcement to investigate the creep.
This has backed R. Kely into a corner more than any past efforts have managed.
R. Kelly has reportedly vowed to "sue everybody" involved with the Lifetime docuseries, clearly hoping to silence his critics.
Kelly was willing to do so much more than just threaten legal actions.
As TMZ reported, Kelly planned to leak the sex tapes of the survivors who spoke out against him.
A team reportedly working for him launched a website, ironically named survivinglies.
That is clear retaliation and sounds like revenge porn, which is illegal for good reason.
The singer's attorneys stepped in and closed down the site.
"They were afraid of lawsuits," the insider explains.
The source continues: "especially after they learned the team planned to use it to feature a revenge-porn video."
This video, the insider says, would have been "featuring one of his victims consenting to sex."
R. Kelly has been accused of having used grooming, violence, starvation, and psychological manipulation to keep multiple women obedient and afraid.
A video of a woman giving some sort of verbal consent would not have disproved any accusations.
Instead, the tactic would have discouraged other women from coming forward for fear of having their own nightmares broadcast on the internet.
But thankfully, not only were plans for the site scrapped, but even a Facebook page devoted to the site was taken down.
"We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other's private contact information," Facebook explained in a statement.
Facebook continued: "and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we're aware."
Legal prosecutions, especially of complicated sex crimes that took place over years and decades, can be difficult to prosecute.
Additional witnesses may be reluctant to come forward because society and especially R. Kelly fans may not want to hear what they have to say.
We can only imagine the sort of courage that it took for everyone who participated in Surviving R. Kelly.

Farrah Abraham's nonsensical, word-salad social media posts are already the stuff of legend.
But believe it or not, she may have just outdone herself.
You're probably familiar with the #10YearChallenge that encourages Facebook users to post photos of themselves ten years ago next to photos of themselves now.
Like so much of social media, the whole thing appeals to the narcissist within all of us, so it should come as no surprise that Farrah took the whole thing to the next level.
But this time, Farrah didn't just blather on about how great she is -- she also expressed some very controversial opinions about teen pregnancy.
Take a look:
1. Queen of Controversy
3. Cause For Dismissal
4. Branching Out
5. Diverse Portfolio

This week, Selena Gomez broke her Instagram silence for the first time in several months.
Now, she is surfacing in photographs online in the company of a fellow actor.
Is Selena dating Austin North?
HollywoodLife reports that Selena Gomez has been spending more and more time with fellow actor Austin North.
"They enjoy going on trips that don't involve alcohol," the insider reveals.
"And," the source says. "Although Selena's been advised not to jump into a relationship just yet."
The insider continues: "who knows what the future holds!"
Life & Style also gushes that Austin has, if anything, been a "positve influence" on Selena's health.
That is more than any of us can say for certain past boyfriends of hers.
The public first connected Selena and Austin when the two were spotted in a group photo that Austin shared on instagram.
The two are bundled up on the slopes of Big Bear, California. (We have zoomed in on the couple for you)
"Just a couple young people being adventurous for the day," Austin tagged the photo.
Given that he was surrounded by multiple people, people very naturally latched onto the word "couple."
He also tagged Selena, which is not super discreet.
Austin is a fellow actor and just a few years younger than Selena.
We have to assume that he shared the pic with permission.
"He understands the pressure that comes with fame," an insider tells HollywoodLife.
"And like Selena," the source says, Austin "is a big believer in God."
That may be an understatement -- as he dated Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson for four months.
That pair of devout Christians broke up in August of 2018.
Additionally, Austin and Selena reportedly attended a New Year's Eve church service together.
Just this week, Selena finally broke her months of silence, speaking on social media for the first time since September.
"It's been awhile since you have heard from me," she began.
"But I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year," Selena expressed. "And to thank you for your love and support."
"Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges, and growth," she acknowledged.
Selena continued: "It's always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming."
"Trust me, it's not easy," she concluded. "But I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all."
Selena also delivered a more succinct update this week.
"Lots to look forward to in 2019," she teased. "I can't wait to share the projects I've been working on with you."
That is exciting!
She revealed that the first of those projects was where she was, in California.
It is possible that she and Austin have been hanging out as "work friends," as actors on the same movie (or other project).
But work friends can sometimes blossom into something more.
We hope that Selena does what is best for Selena. She deserves the world.

Miley Cyrus would really like to enjoy her newfound newlywed status in relative peace and quiet.
But the stupid Internet won't allow her to do so.
The singer and Liam Hemsworth got married in late December after 10 years of dating.
The stars surprised fans by holding a mostly secret ceremony at their home in Tennessee, inviting only close friends and family members to witness their vow exchange.
How great, right?
What a great reason to celebrate!
Yes, yes and yes. Absolutely.
But a handful of social media users out there have been speculating that Miley and Liam finally tied the knot because the artist is pregnant -- which is hilarious because, as mentioned above, they've been together for a frickin decade!
Still. The pregnant rumor exists.
And Cyrus has clearly heard about it and read about it and now has response to it.
"I'm not 'egg-expecting' but it's 'egg-celent' to hear everyone is so 'happy for us'… we're happy for us too!" Cyrus tweeted in response to the chatter, poking fun here at the world record egg that surpassed Kylie Jenner's first snapshot of daughter Stormi as the most-liked Instagram of all time.
Cyrus concluded in her clap back:
Egg-cited' for this next chapter in our lives… Now, can everyone leave me alone and go back to staring at an egg.
Pretty well and hilariously said, right?
We have heard that Cyrus and Hemsworth may have gotten hitched because they want to start a family in the near future, but that's very different than implying this was a shotgun marriage.
We're pretty certain it's the exact opposite of that, considering the amount of time Cyrus and Hemsworth have been engaged and how many erroneous reports stated previously that they had already become husband and wife.
Neither has said much about their December 23rd wedding, except for Liam sharing a photo from it on Instagram and simply writing "My love" as a reference to his now-wife.
For someone who went through a phase of needing so much attention years ago that she basically f-cked a foam finger on stage, Cyrus has made a point to keep her love life relatively private.
She certainly didn't sell any wedding photos to any tabloids, or make a huge public spectacle about the big day in general.
She simply let some friends share some photos online and then moved on, happy in her union.
And here's another thing, people:
You REALLY need to stop wondering if women are pregnant.
This can be insulting at best and horribly insensitive at worst.
For all you know, the woman in question has just gained a little bit of weight and you're calling attention to her midsection.
Or, for all you know, the woman has been trying to get pregnant, yet has been unable to do so and is feeling really awful about herself as a result.
So let's all vow to cut out the guessing games and the speculation and to just let someone such as Miley Cyrus live her life until she chooses to make an announcement about her womb -- if there is any to make.
Okay? Awesome, thanks.

Brielle Biermann would like nothing on this Earth more than for people to shut up about her lips already.
Yes, she has lip fillers. And yes, she likes them this way.
Now, she says that she has proof that she looks better with them than without them. Take a look:
Brielle Biermann took to social media to share a mildly unflattering throwback photo.
"To those who say i look better before lips," Brielle addresses her post.
She then accuses: "you're a liar."
Brielle has famously received lip fillers, similar to those of her mother, Kim Zolciak.
Many have criticized Brielle and believe that her natural face looks better, but she disagrees.
"And this photo," Brielle writes. "Is PROOOOOOF!"
Brielle does not look bad here -- just younger, with a less polished look.
"Thanks for encouraging me to do my thing," Brielle expresses to her fans.
"And," she writes, she enjoys the freedom to "be myself."
Brielle thanks fans for allowing her to do so "without saying sorry."
Her gratitude extends to those fans for lending their support "even if you didn't know you were."
It's good that she can draw personal strength from fan encouragement.
Brielle shared the throwback photo as her own take on the #10YearChallenge.
In recent days, people have been uploading photos of themselves from 2019 and from 2009.
The goal is to show how much or little you've aged, or how much of a glow up you have experienced.
(Some of the people doing it were literal children in 2009, which makes the rest of us feel ancient beyond measure, so thanks for that)
Brielle wanted to highlight how much she has transformed (though it was in less than 10 years).
It's understandable that she would be defensive over her lips.
Brielle is unquestionably hot, and she has the social media clout that goes with that appeal.
But time and time again, people have zeroed in on her lips.
People are entitled to their opinions, of course, but some have taken it too far by posting rude and hateful comments.
They have even done so of photos of Brielle and her mom, Kim.
"Holy s--t….what's wrong with her lips," wrote an extremely rude fan under a photo that Kim shared.
Kim deactivated comments on that post as a response to the hate, and issued a stern defense of her eldest daughter.
"Messing with my kids is gonna be a big one, you know?" Kim admitted last summer. "Let's use Brielle's lips, right?"
"So when Brielle wanted her lips done," sh eexplained. "It was something that she's never really liked,"
"She's always talked about wanting bigger lips," Kim continued. "She turned 18, I took her to the best."
"That's her decision, her choice," she affirmed. "I took her to the best."
"She was very open because she said she didn't want other girls that felt like her to not know that there wasn't an option," she added.
"So she shared that with the world," Kim said. "Then, they're like, 'You look like a duck, you look awful, they look terrible, blah, blah, blah.'"
Kim concluded: "And Brielle's like, 'Well f--k, maybe I shouldn't say anything.' I said, 'No, you just basically do you.'"
Brielle Biermann is a beautiful and successful young woman.
Her lips are her own business.
You don't have to like them -- you just have to, you know, communicate your thoughts politely or not at all.
That's a pretty good guide for anyone's physical appearance.
