Weeks before this season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way premiered, we reported on Ariela and Biniyam.
The couple were spotted in New York City, apparently filming something.
That of course was before all of the ridiculous drama in Leandro began airing on our screens.
But Ariela intends to keep smiling through it, with a little help from a dentist.
Ariela Weinberg took to Instagram this week to share that she is getting work done to help with her TMJ.
"Thank you so much @drrubinoff!" she wrote on social media.
Ariela added: "I know this is the first step to fixing the TMJ problems I have been suffering for years."
"I also know that with this life transformation," Ariela's caption continued.
She wrote: "I will gain back confidence in myself and my smile!"
She shared a series of glimpses of her visit to a dentist's office.
TMJ actually refers to the joint that connects your jawbone to your skull.
However, it is used as a shorthand to refer to issues with that joint, including bruxism.
In many cases, people experience involuntary tooth-grinding, sometimes when they sleep, that can cause lasting and painful issues.
It's great that Ariela is receiving treatment for this painful, chronic issue.
What's particularly interesting is that this post was very clearly from New York.
She even acknowledged that the dentist's office was in Manhattan.
This confirms numerous other indications that she is in New York.
And since we have seen Ariela and Biniyam appear side-by-side in multiple recent interviews, it's likely that they are both in the city together.
Whether this means that they are attempting a K-1 visa, a similar visa, or he is just in town for as long as permitted ... we can't say for sure.
We already knew that Ariela and Biniyam were no longer in Ethiopia.
First, this season has long teased that Ariela has to make the difficult decision to take her baby back to the United States.
Sweet little Avi had a hernia and required delicate ear surgery, and his parents had to put his well-being first.
But we also knew that Ariela and Biniyam were spotted in other countries in Africa after leaving Ethiopia.
Apparently, the area where they were living became destabilized amidst some civil unrest.
For the safety of themselves and their son, they spent time away from there.
Some parts of the timeline are a little fuzzy, but if Ariela and Biniyam are in New York now, he must have some legal means of being here.
There are tourist visas and work visas, of course.
But there are also K-1 visas, for engaged couples, and marital visas for those who are already married.
The fact that the two were spotted filming together earlier this summer ... that narrows down the possibilities.
Many fans suspect that Ariela and Biniyam may be filming for Season 9 of 90 Day Fiance.
After all, if they're in New York, then The Other Way isn't really the right venue for their story anymore, is it?
It would not be surprising to hear that they are moving on to the main series in the franchise.
Ariela and Biniyam have been extremely polarizing and widely discussed.
Fans are all over the place about them.
Some can't stand her. Some can't stand him.
Some are rooting for them, others loathe them both.
That is a better recipe for reality TV success than being universally loved or hated.
