Mindy Confronts Zach & Lindsay About Their Relationship During Tonight’s Episode
Tonight’s episode of the show, titled “Anniversaries and Secrets,” promises some serious fallout between Zach and Mindy while the two attempt to celebrate their one-month anniversary. The conversation involving Zach’s relationship with Lindsay started after the reality star confronted Mindy on allegedly being dishonest with him earlier on in their relationship. While he refuses to tell Mindy what she allegedly did, he mentions that her “friends can confirm” her dishonesty, which prompts Mindy to ask her husband who he’s been talking to behind her back.
Zach tells Mindy that he and her close friend Lindsay connected on Instagram after the wedding and eventually exchanged phone numbers. He admits that he’s been talking with Lindsay for a few weeks and Mindy responds, “Do you think maybe you should tell me that you’re having a friendship on the side with one of my friends?”
Although Zach tells Mindy that he and Lindsay only chatted a few times, the reality star eventually calls her friend, who tells Mindy a different story … according to Lindsay, she and Zach have spoken on the phone several times (although he claims it was only once), and they often text one another.
A clip shared earlier in the season also gave viewers a sneak peek at the looming love-triangle drama, so it should come as no surprise that it’s finally playing out on the show. In that specific promo, Lindsay tells Mindy, “I’m mad at myself about it, and I’m ready to tell you the whole truth.” In response, Mindy tells the cameras that “somebody is lying here, either one of my best friends or my husband.”
Zach and Mindy have already been dealing with a plethora of issues this season, from Zach’s lack of attraction to his wife, to his refusal to move in and give their marriage a real shot. Watching their “love” story play out has been cringeworthy to say the least, and has us questioning how the experts ever thought Zach would be a good match for Mindy.

The Instagrammer also notes that “Zach denies it, of course,” and that there was “no indication the two had anything physical happen.” MAFSFan adds that when Lindsay and Zach started talking, she was allegedly trying to help Zach better understand Mindy while the two were working through issues in their marriage.
