After his sentencing in September, former 90 Day Fiance star Jorge Nava reported to prison. He expects to remain behind bars for two years.
This leaves his wife, Anfisa, looking to fill a hole in her life.
With an uncharacteristically heartfelt post to fans and some revealing photos, Anfisa is explaining how her life is different without Jorge.
Beside two photos of Anfisa's sculpted physique, she has poured her heart out to fans.
"My husband got sentenced to 2.5 years in prison on Septeber 7," Anfisa reminds her fans.
"To be honest," Anfisa writes. "It has been very hard on me."
Anfisa feels this way "because Jorge and I are not just husband and wife, but we are truly best friends."
"And," she explains. "We used to share everything with each other."
These days, communication is difficult.
"And, since we aren’t together physically now," Anfisa begins.
"And only get to talk to each other once a day," she continues.
She laments: "it feels like a big part of me was taken away."
Prison, especially for a non-violent "crime" like possession of a forbidden plant, can tear families apart.
"I don't normally talk about it," Anfisa shares.
She explains that she is so reticent "because I don’t like to show my emotions to the public."
"Especially," Anfisa adds. "If I believe that it will make me look weak and pathetic."
That is extremely, consummately Russian of her.
"It’s just the way I am," Anfisa writes.
In her eyes: "I’d rather be thought of as a 'cold-hearted bitch' than a 'crybaby.'"
"Now you are probably thinking ok what does this caption have to do with the pictures?" Anfisa writes.
Most may have assumed that she shared the pics as a ploy to grab the attention of her followers so that they would read her captions.
As it turns out, it's a little more complicated than that.
"And the answer is," Anfisa says. "To fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced and I was left on my own, I decided to try to stay busy."
Busy beyond her activities as a student, she means.
"And do what I enjoy the most," she continues. "And it was working out."
Anfisa even shares that she has goals beyond just keeping her mind off of her loneliness.
She wants to compete.
"And ONE DAY," she writes. "I want to take it on a higher level and compete in NPC bikini division."
Most people of course read NPC as non-playable character, but in this case, she refers to the National Physique Committee.
She's talking about the extreme end of bodybuilding competitions.
She wants to build up her muscle mass enough to compete. Hey, good for her.
Anfisa also decries the negative feedback that she sometimes receives from haters.
"It feels frustrating when some of you try to knock me down for doing what I love and enjoy," she shares.
Anfisa writes: "I know that many of you started following me on social media after seeing 90 Day Fiance."
"Well, I'm just letting you know that I'm going in a different direction now," she says.
In other words, if you don't like it, you can unfollow.
Anfisa concludes: "I'm very grateful to have people that are cheering me up."
