Anfisa Arkhipchenko isn’t one to back down from haters. The 90 Day Fiance star is receiving a lot of hate from fans three episodes into the show’s new season. Quite frankly, to say that Anfisa is one of the show’s most bashed and disliked cast is an understatement.
Anfisa was first introduced last year in 90 Day Fiance Season 4, as the Russian bombshell beauty engaged to California native Jorge Lopez. She is unabashedly materialistic, vocal, and vain–even admitting to marrying Jorge because he promised her a lavish life.
Anfisa and Jorge returned to the spotlight in the spinoff 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 2, which premiered June 25. When the pilot episode aired, Anfisa and Jorge were seen still fighting about money six months into their marriage. Their fights turned violent in the second episode when Anfisa slapped Jorge at their lawyers’ office when he refused to give in to her “post-nup” demands. Last Sunday, Anfisa’s craziness hit a new level when she’s seen hysterically screaming at Jorge over the phone after she found out that he was planning to meet with the lawyers alone.
Because of this, 90 Day Fiance fans are calling out Anfisa on various social media outlets for being physically abusive and mean to Jorge on top of her “gold digger” attitude.
But the 21-year-old Russian beauty is hitting back at her haters. After Sunday’s episode, Anfisa took to Instagram to slam her critics. First, she posted a selfie she took with Jorge.
“I got your back,” she wrote in the caption, hinting that their marriage is still going strong.
And then, she posted a picture of herself wearing a cap that reads “Goal Digger” as if to answer those who are saying that she’s only after money and getting an American visa. She made hashtags out of the labels she’s been getting from angry fans, such as “fake,” “plastic,” and “mail-order bride.”
The picture, which has now gotten over 5,000 likes, received mixed comments from Anfisa’s followers. Many are also defending the 90 Day Fiance star for being honest and real. In fact, they argued, it was Jorge who lied to her when they first got together. Jorge just confessed on the show that he’s not the wealthy man he claimed to be when he proposed to Anfisa.
“Anfisa, you’re one of the realest! Blunt, bold, and in your face type of boss!”
“Keep doing you, girl. I love your honesty and just being you. You must be doing something right for your haters to even respond.”
Replying to one fan who commented that the reality star is now getting more lovers than haters, Anfisa promised that she’ll get more fans “after the next episode.” It seems there will be more explosive revelations in 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 2.
In an older Instagram post, Anfisa also responded to critics who are saying that the show is scripted and the marriages are fake. She claimed that all couples featured in the show have seen their long-distance partners at least once before flying to the United States to get married.
“What they don’t understand is how the show actually works. It’s not like people apply to be on the show and then get matched in couples and that’s where the show begins… And this ’90 days’ are definitely not to get to know your partner because you already know the person you’ve had long enough relationship with and decided you want to marry them. That’s why all of the couples end up married every season.”
