Natalie, 35, conducted a Q&A session with her Instagram followers this week after Sunday night’s 90 Day Fiance‘s Season 8 episode featured Natalie taking Mike Youngquist back and begging him to marry her prior to the expiration of her K-1 visa that allowed her to come to the United States.
“I’m looking for a publisher right now, to publish my first book in English,” Natalie wrote in her Instagram Story on Tuesday.
“So, most of [the] uncomfortable questions will be answered in this book! I bet you will enjoy the TEA!”
Natalie also teased her cooking channel on YouTube and confirmed she’s making Cameo videos for fans.
On the latest 90 Day Fiance episode, Natalie had to return to Mike’s house after a Seattle hotel refused to take Mike’s credit card as payment for her reservation since Mike — who had canceled his wedding on the big day — was not present.
Once the couple reunited, Mike and Natalie talked off-camera and slept in separate bedrooms. Natalie said she was feeling angry and insecure and it felt like the whole world was against her and she didn’t know how to cope.
“I didn’t hide my pain and fears,” Natalie wrote in another Q&A posting on Monday, according to In Touch Weekly.
Natalie also reportedly acknowledged that it was brave for her to pour her heart out on TLC without worrying about “any kind of opinion.”
Natalie added, “I only wish I could be more happy. And I’m sorry I wasn’t.”
And when asked if she had returned her engagement ring to Mike once he asked for it, Natalie wrote on Instagram Stories, “Well, I did keep it.”
Mike ended up apologizing to Natalie for hurting her, and he said his decision to cancel their wedding was solely based on his nerves. Natalie still had feelings for Mike deep inside and so she chose to forgive him.
“Past the 90 days, I want you to stay and I don’t want you to go anywhere… I don’t want you to go home,” Mike said.
With only one day left on Natalie’s K-1 visa, the couple had to decide whether to get married the next day or allow Natalie to leave America and fly back to the Ukraine when coronavirus was rapidly spreading.
“I don’t see any solution except getting married. That’s it,” Natalie said, before telling Mike, “If you don’t want to marry me tomorrow, I have to leave tomorrow.”
Natalie said if Mike wanted to be with her, he only had one choice to make — but he wouldn’t give her an answer and she was “so frustrated.”
Mike was trying to process everything as Natalie felt “abandoned” by her fiance.
“We’ve got our issues, lots of things. Everything is rushed. It’s not like it’s a magical fairy tale,” Mike complained.
“It’s not like there’s anything that’s going to magically change my mind and it’s going to be, ‘Poof!’ There’s not. I don’t know.”
Mike was a 35-year-old from Sequim, Washington, when he met Natalie was a 35-year-old from Kyiv, Ukraine, through a mutual friend, and they first initially on Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance.
90 Day Fiance‘s eighth season premiered with Natalie flying to the U.S. on her K-1 visa and adjusting to life in America despite her jealousy and trust issues.
Mike and Natalie often challenged each other and had to overcome many differences — including their diets, cultures, lifestyles, and religions.
