For once, 90 Day Fiance couple Ashley Martson and Jay Smith have a legitimate issue to deal with. As opposed to mostly everything that they’ve posted on Instagram, this is certainly not something to play at for a publicity stunt. Although, perhaps they would be that reckless.
It’s too bad that Ashley and Jay have cried wolf so many times with their fans, that now they are met with skepticism. They’ve admitted to faking a breakup for ratings. Another time Ashley filed, then quickly withdrew, a divorce petition. She made sure to share her indecision on social media. This time, there are some very official documents that legitimize the situation Ashley and Jay are in.
What a difference one month makes. Especially for 90 Day Fiance couple Ashley Martson and Jay Smith. For this dysfunctional pair, thirty days is an exponentially long time not to have SOME marital issue. Like dog years but with a lot of controversy and Instagram posts, neither of which are aging well.
They’ve certainly made every effort to keep fans in the loop about their relationship drama from withdrawn divorce petitions to leaked wedding photos. The last we heard, Jay was stepping it up as a husband and supporting Ashley through her recovery from kidney failure. Apparently, the good times didn’t last long.
Don’t you miss 90 Day Fiance? Each episode is guaranteed to bring something strange, embarrassing, awkward and mind-boggling. And that is just before the first commercial break! Arguably, the couple who brought the most amusing and shocking moments last season were Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima. And fortunately for viewers, we were introduced to Colt’s reality television gold mother, Debbie Johnson!
In a whirlwind season, we saw Colt and Larissa reunited in Las Vegas to marry. And we watched them fight and make up. Again and again. Seemingly disagreeing on everything. Yet, somehow the odd couple managed to make it down the aisle-Larissa in a dress from Goodwill and Colt in, well, something dapper from the Colt Collection. And now, less than a year after these two love birds took their sacred vows, they are finalizing their divorce.
The latest season of 90 Day Fiance ended a few months ago and I will admit I have been missing the over the top drama delivered by the show’s cast. Just when you think that nothing can shock you, 90 Day always manages to surprise/amaze/offend/appall you. And leave you wondering, what are these people thinking? And that, in a nutshell, is why we watch reality television-because these folks often don’t think at all before acting!
Fortunately, 90 Day Fiance has a spin off show-90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? -for us to enjoy. Half of the cast for Season 4 was already announced: Russ Mayfield and Paola Mayfield, Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno and Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima. All of whom are couples who could throw down enough crazy to fill a show on their own. And now the rest of the cast has been announced-assuring a season guaranteed to be educational television at its finest.
Ashley Martson is not one to step away from a publicity opportunity. Since being introduced on 90 Day Fiance, Ashley gets a lot of exposure on social media. So, unsurprisingly, Ashley was happy to speak about her relationship with husband Jay Smith.
This relationship has gone through a lot. Ashley’s health problems have challenged her new marriage to the Jamaican native. Production for 90 Day Fiance supposedly pressured Jay and Ashley to pretend that they were separating. After breaking her NDA, Ashley revealed that she and Jay never split. They did hit a rough patch when Ashley caught Jay interacting with another woman on Tinder. But now not only are they still together, they are going strong.
The 90 Day Fiance franchise has expanded enough that, within the cast of characters, there are personalities that bicker and feud. And fans get a ring-side seat to all the drama because everything is shared on social media. So which duo got into it this week? Combative Cameo enthusiast Jon Walters had some choice words for Ashley Martson. This is surprising because these two were not costars in the same season. The common denominator in this story is Ricky Reyes.
On March 9th, Ricky checked himself into the hospital. He decided to seek help for his mental state. Ashley posted a message in support of Ricky’sdecision. Then, Jon questioned her authenticity. The two have been going back and forth takinpassive-aggressiveve jabs at each other.
It seems 2019 has been a challenge for 90 Day Fiance couple Ashley Martson and Jay Smith. After a series of misguided publicity stunts, such as filing then retracting a divorce petition, fans of the reality show have been questioning the couple’s every move. Those on social media that have turned on them are convinced that Ashley and Jay are scamming their followers.
The next logical question is did Ashley really use the money donated to her Go Fund Me for medical expenses? Ashley’s friends set up the account last month on her behalf. It coincided with her most recent hospital stay in January when she was admitted with kidney failure. At the time, Ashley was facing a long recovery and daunting medical bills. Because of the backlash, Ashley decided to return the money. According to her statement, it was never withdrawn.
90 Day Fiance fans may think they have seen it all when it comes to Ashley Martson and Jay Smith’s relationship. They were one of the most active Season 6 couples on social media. What they posted a labyrinth of information involving divorce petitions, dating apps, and potentially fraudulent GoFundMe accounts.
But now, Ashley claims that she and Jay never separated during the course of their marriage. She revealed that production for the show pushed the couple to act as if they were no longer together. This could explain why Ashley filed for divorce on January 11, only to withdraw the petition just over a week later.
