’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Anfisa Fires Back at Trolls Calling Her ‘Manly’
90 Day Fiancé star Anfisa Nava has been dealing with Jorge Nava’s arrest and imprisonment in her own unique way — body-building. Since her husband has been jailed, Anfisa Nava has been working hard to enter the world of competitive body-building, and she just won her first big competition.
Now, unfortunately, some individuals are lashing out at her choice, telling her that she looks too manly and muscular. Anfisa has a few words for them in return, however.
Her husband’s prison sentence
Anfisa Nava’s life became more emotionally challenging than she expected when her husband was arrested. 90 Day Fiancé star Jorge Nava was arrested on February 12 in Arizona after being caught with 293 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car.
Jorge Nava was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison after his lawyer was able to reduce his sentence with a plea deal.
In an interview with TMZ, Jorge said, “When I first started, with the charges against me, I was looking at around 24 years, something like that, some ridiculous number. But luckily, my lawyer was able to work out a plea agreement and I got the charges dropped and I ended up pleading to a class four felony in Arizona.”
He added, “I feel like it’s really harsh of a penalty for the crime being. Just because it’s marijuana-related and right now, it’s going legal.”
Body-building to stay positive
When her husband was jailed, Anfisa found herself emotionally marooned and faced with the difficulty of managing her newfound loneliness. According to the 90 Day Fiancé star, it was challenging for her to deal with these emotions.
In an Instagram post, Anfisa wrote, “It has been very hard on me because Jorge and I are not just husband and wife but we are truly best friends,. We used to share everything with each other and since we aren’t together physically now and only get to talk to each other once a day it feels like a big part of me was taken away.”
Anfisa also mentioned that it’s hard for her to open up about her feelings. “I don’t like to show my emotions to the public, especially if I believe that it will make me look weak and pathetic. It’s just the way I am – I’d rather be thought of as a ‘cold-hearted b****‘ than a ‘crybaby.’ ”
To keep herself positive, she turned to body-building. “To fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced and I was left on my own I decided to try to stay busy and do what I enjoy the most and it was working out,” explained Anfisa. “And ONE DAY I want to take it on a higher level and compete in NPC bikini division.”
Firing back at the trolls
Unfortunately, some people online have decided to take the 90 Day Fiancé stars newfound passion in a negative direction. Anfisa Nava has been facing backlash from trolls about her body-building.
One user commented on Instagram, “Why does woman wants guys muscles and abs?” Another commenter suggested she had an eating disorder.
Another user commented, “Go eat. Eat a lot! Too too tooooo skinny…if you can see a space between your thighs….you’re .too skinny. Simple. Nasty.”
Luckily, Anfisa Nava seems more than able to fight back. She wrote on Instagram, “They say ‘Muscles make you look manly’ … I personally have never felt more feminine and happy than I do now. It’s all about how you feel on the inside and not what you look like on the outside. All shapes and sizes can be beautiful as long as you live in harmony with yourself.”
