She’s not made of steel. Danielle Jbali (neé Mullins) spoke exclusively with In Touch and opened up about a number of topics — including what it’s like to deal with her haters. “It does get to me especially when you get messages like I did the other day,” she said, although she didn’t repeat those remarks. “We are human like everyone else and we have feelings, struggles and hardships like fans, the only difference is ours is on TV.”
Danielle, 46, is known for her appearance on TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé, and she admitted that being in the spotlight now can be tough. “I am going through something rough right now and I have been feeling alone, but people don’t see that side because I don’t put it out there for the public to know,” she confessed.
In Touch asked the reality star who she leans on during those tough times. “I lean on a friend who I have known for five years, who has been there to encourage, support, and help me through hard times. I also lean on my kids who I am very close to,” she said.
Previously, Danielle opened up about what makes her feel sexy and self-assured, especially now that she’s dropped 15 pounds amid a weight loss journey. “What makes me feel sexy is being loved and treated right by the right partner,” the reality TV personality revealed. “Also losing weight and doing stuff for me like going to school that will bring confidence out in anyone.”
Danielle also spoke to In Touch about her new flame, following her split from ex-husband Mohamed Jbali, back in May. On May 14, she told her Instagram followers during a Q&A held on her Story that she’s seeing someone new. She exclusively revealed to In Touch that she actually met him while she was still married to the Tunisia native. “He had reached out to me and Mohamed both during our first season of 90 Day Fiancé. We stayed in contact after me and Mohamed split. He was there for me and my kids after Mohamed left,” she explained.
She continued, “He approached me and did a hypothetical scenario, [saying], ‘What if there was someone who would love you, support you and be there for you?’ When he first did the hypothetical, I cried. … I never thought someone like him would be interested in me because he is educated in the profession of teaching. … We are still together.” We really hope they’re still going strong because we only want the best for Danielle!
