Now that Nicole's family finally accepts Azan and their engagement, she has big plans for the future.
But some 90 Day Fiance fans are less accepting, and continue to accuse Nicole of being a fool who's being led on.
Others peddle conspiracy theories about why Azan hasn't been able to meet up with her in the US or even another country, like South Korea.
Now, Nicole is going out of her way to set things straight.
And she's also revealing how fans can follow her and Azan as their story continues -- but it won't be on social media or on Happily Ever After?
1. Nicole Nafziger has BIG news!
The 90 Day Fiance star took to her Instagram Stories to defend her romance with fiance Azan Tefou, but that's not all that she had to say.
2. Nicole is on the defensive
She is so, SO tired of people thinking that Azan is making a fool out of her or stringing her along. And don't think that she can't read between the lines -- she knows that some of these haters not-so-subtly believe that Nicole's weight means that a hot guy couldn't really be interested. It is SO hateful.
3. She and Azan have a solid bond
More solid, she argues, than plenty of the other relationships that her 90 Day Fiance castmates have had before getting married. We have to say ... she has a real point.
4. But when will they actually be together?
SOON. Nicole loves this word. It's equally excited and ominous, depending upon context. In this case, "SOON" is very much excited ... with just a touch of exhasperation over being repeatedly asked.
5. So why don't they just try again for a K-1 visa?
Azan hasn't reapplied for a K-1 visa, which would allow him to come to the US for 90 days as her fiance, because they don't expect a different result. They'll need to wait for something to change before they roll the dice again -- but they've come up with a new plan.
6. When will she at least go out to see him again?
Nicole says that this is a secret. Notably, later in this very same Q&A, she gets a lot more specific.
