We probably don’t need to tell you that the goal of reality television is not to perfectly depict reality but to craft a compelling narrative and attract an audience.
As a result, the shows we love don’t always provide an accurate depiction of the lives we’re looking in on.
And according to Fernanda Flores, the producers of 90 Day Fiance offered viewers a wildly inaccurate portrayal of her brief relationship with Jonathan Rivera.
As you likely already know, Jonathan and Fernanda’s breakup was as ugly as they get — and the whole mess is far from over.
In fact, last we checked in on him, Rivera was talking about having Flores deported.
For now at least, Fernanda is still living in America, and clearly, she’s not about to take Jonathan’s threats lying down.
Flores recently posted a 44-minute video in which she offered her side of the story — and needless to say, the whole thing is not terribly flattering to Jonathan.
One of Fernanda and Jonathan’s most memorable spats came early in their season when Fernanda discovered a pair of women’s underwear in one of Jonathan’s drawers.
In her video, Fernanda revealed that she actual uncovered several indicators of Jonathan’s promiscuity, and only one of them was featured on the show:
"That same week, I found a lot of stuff—not just underwear," she says in the clip.
"Sex toys, pictures, movies and stuff. Dude, you’re supposed to have left your past behind and start fresh with me. I know you’re a single man. I know that you’re older than me…but I wasn’t understanding why," she explained.
"I realized not everything is how it seems."
But Fernanda didn’t spend her entire 44-minute rant focusing on Jonathan’s possible infidelity.
No, she also addressed his many other red flags, including the fact that he "likes to drink way too much" and "wasn’t careful with money at all."
"He will make good money but spend," she stated.
"He didn’t want to have a plan. He didn’t want to listen to me and I wasn’t understanding."
At one point, Fernanda alleged that she was "in a really abusive relationship," citing a specific incident in which Jonathan got physical with her after she accused him of cheating:
"I remember me looking through his office and stuff and I found a wrapper of a condom," Fernanda recalled.
"I flipped out. I literally flipped out. I yell at him and I tell him, ‘What the f–k is this?’ I was so mad.
"His reaction was grab me from the neck, push me into the wall. ‘That’s not mine. You’re crazy.’"
On Monday, Fernanda posted a message to her Instagram page explaining that she was forced to delete the video for legal reasons.
She specified that she has not wavered in her stance and will post the video again as soon as she’s able:
For his part, Rivera has issued a statement in which he denies Flores’ allegation and reveals that he intends to continue with deportation proceedings.
"These allegations are completely false and my attorney will now be handling the situation," Jonathan said.
"Clearly, she will do whatever she has to in order to stay in this country."
We’re guessing this situation will get much worse before it starts to get any better.
