Since the news came out that Ariela’s former husband, Leandro, is visiting their home in Ethiopia, fans have been up in arms. They cannot understand how she could invite Leandro to stay in her home with her husband, Biniyam.
In the teaser below for the upcoming season, Biniyam can be seen wrestling with Leandro, and it looks like Shibre wins. However, while he might have beaten her ex-husband in that fight, he is worried that Ariela might leave him and return to her former beau.
In a later clip for Sunday’s premiere, Ariela explains to her friend that she gets lonely in Ethiopia by herself. She explained that she is happy that her “best friend” is coming to visit, meaning Leandro, her former husband.
Her friend is a little shocked, as, in Ethiopia, once you are divorced you no longer see your former husband. However, it turns out fans are also shocked by her decision to invite Leandro to her and Biniyam’s home in Ethiopia.
