Who is Vanessa Villela’s fiancé?
Speaking of her romance on Selling Sunset season 5 episode 1, Vanessa said: “Nick and I have been together for 10 months“.
Her fiancé, Nick Hardy, lives in the UK and the two met online. Vanessa said they spoke for three months and then decided to meet in Mexico. They were supposed to visit Mexico for 10 days but ended up staying there for two months.
