90 Day Fiance star Nicole Nafziger has been dropping hints that she'll marry Azan Tefou in the near future.
But in this Happily Ever After? sneak peek, Nicole reveals that she's been lying to everyone.
She's pulled the wool over the eyes of her family and the viewers at home, and even the producers are shocked.
"I miss Azan," Nicole admits at the start of this new 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? clip.
The new season is days away, but the show is already dropping major bombshells.
"Yeah," her sister adds in ... noncommittal support.
Nicole continues: "Having to come back without getting married really sucks."
We can only imagine.
"Now that she’s back," her sister says to the camera in a confessional.
"And," Nicole's sister observes, Nicole "didn’t get married for different reasons that we’re still, like, figuring out."
Oh, that's a little shady. We do understand her confusion.
"it’s been a little difficult for her," her sister admits.
"I do feel she really wanted to move forward with the wedding," her sister speculates.
"And that makes me wonder," she confesses. "like, how much he pushed her in not having the wedding at this time."
To be fair, none of us know what talk goes on behind the scenes.
We don't know what's Azan's idea and what's Nicole's.
"And that kind of concerns me a little bit," her sister admits.
Ultimately, Nicole's sister decides to ask point-blank.
"Why did y’all decide to push it off?" she inquires.
"We decided to just like, start a shop or something," Nicole replies vaguely.
Ah, yes -- Azan's famous, vague shop. The one that sells ... goods, presumably.
She explains that they wanted to do this "to get like, an income and then kinda get married."
"So how’s the shop going?" her sister asks.
"It’s going," Nicole replies.
Did she practice being vague?
Nicole added, also unhelpfully: "It's a shop."
Is it, though?
Because Nicole's expression as she says this to her sister is ... thoroughly unconvincing.
"Even though I told my mom that we were talking about opening a store," Nicole says in confessional.
She reveals: "We never winded up going through with it."
It was all a lie?! Even the producer is surprised.
"So there is no store?" the producer asks.
"There is no store," Nicole confirms.
Controversial take: this may ultimately be a good thing.
Remember, their cover story involved Nicole forking over money to Azan to open said store.
She would have been his investor, essentially.
That investment in a shop in Morocco, when the plan is for Azan to come to the US as her husband, didn't sound like the best plan.
But my goodness, Nicole needs to get better at lying if she's going to pull this kind of thing.
With all of that blushing and grinning, she's not fooling anyone.
At best, they'll just assume that she's trying to cover for the fact that the shop failed.
Or worse, her family will assume that she forked over thousands in savings to Azan, only for him to stall opening a shop.
Her family isn't super thrilled with her endless long distance relationship. They don't need to think even worse of Azan than they already do.
