Molly Hopkins and Luis Mendez, stars of the fifth season of 90 Day Fiancé, called it quits six months after tying the knot in July, 2017. By January of the following year, they had filed for divorce, and just five months after their divorce was finalized, Mendez was already remarried.
The pair met at a bar while Hopkins was vacationing with friends, and Mendez proposed less than two months later. Hopkins is from Woodstock, Georgia, while Mendez hails from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic; after the two got engaged, Mendez returned to America to be with Hopkins.
However, the relationship quickly crumbled, and Hopkins has claimed since the split that Mendez “used” her for his green card. The breakdown of their marriage was captured on Happily Ever After? and subsequent reunions. So where are the two today?
Mendez Married Five Months After His & Hopkins’ Divorce Was Finalized
Mendez spent no time at all re-marrying a new woman after he and Hopkins called it quits. He tied the knot with his new wife on Sept. 19, 2018, and although Mendez worked hard to protect the identity of his wife, he did gush about her to In Touch last year. He told the publication that he “loves his wife so much” and that she makes him incredibly happy.
“Yes, I did get married,” he said. “I love this girl so much. She is so amazing. The most amazing part was meeting her because she changed all life to happiness.” Mendez also claimed at the time that he and Hopkins no longer had any contact, and that he “just wants to be happy. I don’t want to know nothing about it. But if she wants to congratulate me, it’s okay.”
Hopkins reportedly reacted to the news of her ex’s nuptials on Instagram Live, according to PEOPLE. “For all of you who care, or who wanted to talk junk about me, I totally got used but it’s all good. Luis got married to a Dominican lady in Jersey, best I can tell — I saw pictures. Yeah, he’s married to someone else. … So all the people who thought I was crazy — his situation was pretty lovely. I mean, we were together for two years so it’s all good. Oh God, it doesn’t hurt at all. I’m good. I’m so good.”
Hopkins is Focusing on Herself, Her Family & Her Business
Since the divorce, Hopkins has been focusing on herself, her kids and her lingerie business, and has decided not to waste her time on another inauthentic relationship. Although she has moved on from her disastrous marriage, she still threw a little shade at her ex on New Years Eve last year; the reality star posted a picture of herself, writing that this year she wasn’t going to be “marrying any fool with an agenda other than me,” to which fans of Hopkins were thrilled to hear.
“I am doing so very great. I am working out, losing weight, feeling great and helping women all over the world from my bra shop LiviRae Lingerie. I am not dating anyone because I really am focused on my kids, myself, and my business,” Hopkins told E! News. “As far as Luis and I, we’re divorced and he is remarried which leads me to believe he totally scammed me to get here on my money even though we were together for almost two years prior.”
Hopkins has lost a significant amount of weight since the split, which she flaunts frequently on her Instagram page. The TLC alum documented her weight loss journey online and often shared diet tips with her followers over the summer; she has lost an impressive 40 pounds since she and Mendez went their separate ways, and she attributes her success to diet and exercise changes.
Hopkins now features on the popular spinoff series 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk alongside her best friend and business partner Cynthia. Pillow Talk airs Sunday nights at 11 p.m. ET/10 p.m. CT on TLC, and features former cast members and couples watching the show and weighing in on new episodes with their own commentary.
