EXCLUSIVE: Vanessa Nelson Talks MAFS Second Chances- “Having A Relationship On TV Is Never Easy”
We adored Vanessa Nelson on Married At First Sight‘s (MAFS) third season and were confident that her and husband Tres Russell‘s marriage would last. Sadly, we were wrong, as they ended up getting a divorce. With that being said, though, Nelson is currently back on television getting a second chance at love with the dating show Married At First Sight: Second Chances. We recently got the chance to catch up with her about her new show.
We asked Nelson why she would want to give love a second chance on television again and she told us that, “Having a relationship on TV is never easy. My marriage ended on MAFS and I decided to give love another chance to inspire other people. Sometimes in love, you get knocked down but I wanted to be an example that you can always get back up and find the love you deserve.”
And what does Nelson have to say to her critics who claim she’s just doing this again for fame and attention?
“Why would I subject myself to internet trolls for fame and attention?” she began with asking.
“So many people tell me they learned a lot from watching my journey on MAFS, and I know there is a lot to learn from my next journey on Second Chances,” Nelson added. “Being vulnerable and authentic is not easy when it means you open doors to everyone critiquing your every move. But finding love is worth it!”
Curious what else Nelson had to tell us? Stay tuned next week for more of our conversation with her.
