Jess finds out about Vanessa

On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, when Jess meets up with her friends, she tells them that she’s worried about a woman Colt is talking to. At first, she says that she believes him when he says that he and Vanessa are just friends. But later, when she and Colt meet up with her friends for drinks, Jess tells them that she thinks Vanessa might be a problem. 

“He says he won’t hurt me, but there’s a woman that calls him all the time,” Jess says in Portuguese. “He says she’s a friend from the gym.”

In a confessional, Jess says that Colt told her that there’s nothing going on between him and Vanessa. But she questions why Vanessa is constantly calling her boyfriend.

In an E! exclusive sneak peek for Season 5, Episode 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Colt invites Vanessa over for dinner with Debbie to thank her for watching their cats. He reveals that he first met Vanessa online, not at the gym like he told Jess. 

“I met Vanessa during the last few months of my marriage to Larissa,” Colt says. “We started talking online, and eventually we decided to meet at a casino, and we just kind of hit it off.”

Colt explains that Jess has never met Vanessa, so he doesn’t know why she thinks he’s cheating on her. He says he doesn’t want to lie to Jess, but he also doesn’t want to give up his friendship with Vanessa.

“Vanessa’s my best friend,” he adds. “And she’s been there a lot longer than Jess has.”

Fans will finally get to see Vanessa on the upcoming episode. And hopefully, they’ll get to learn more about her relationship with Colt as the season unfolds.
