90 Day Fiance: Molly Hopkins & Luis Mendez Are Divorcing

90 Day Fiance couple sometimes get their happily ever after. Since Molly Hopkins and Luis Mendez beat the odds and got married, it looked like they were home free.

Unfortunately, as we mentioned, Molly and Luis separated a few days after New Year’s Day.

Now, it’s official — Molly has filed for divorce from Luis.

At first, it was a classic boy-meets-girl story.


In this case, the “boy” was 26 years old and working in a bar in Santo Domingo.

The “girl” was much older than he and from Georgia in the US.

They met when she was on a trip to the Dominican Republic and they fell for each other.

And they decided to broadcast their story on 90 Day Fiance.

Aside from criticisms over being perceived to be using each other — Molly wanting Luis as a “boy toy” and Luis wanting US citizenship and perhaps Molly’s financial stability — they had other concerns.

The biggest was Molly hoping that Luis would be a good stepfather to her two daughters.

There was also Molly’s shady criminal history. Suffice it to say that her driving records are a little scary.

But apparently they found a way past all of that.

In July of 2017, Molly and Luis got married.

They made it! … Sort of.

Marriages, as we know, aren’t always a guaranteed happily ever after. Far from it, honestly.

Molly and Luis had some sort of spat and parted ways before the 90 Day Fiance Tell All Special … but they reconciled before the special itself aired.

That was not to last forever, though.

On January 5th, the couple separated.

Some fans who learned of the split hoped that they would reconcile. But that was not to be.

Now, Reality Blurb reports that Molly Hopkins filed for divorce from Luis Mendez on January 23rd.

The papers were filed in Georgia, of course. Molly used her married name, Molly Mondez, when doing the filing.

Like most divorces, she cited irreconcilable differences, writing:

“Plaintiff is entitled to a divorce from Defendant in the statutory grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”

The 42-year-old is keeping their finances separate and hopes that Luis doesn’t make any moves to dispose of any shared marital property that they might possess.

A sad ending to a story that many had hoped would end with a new, happy family.

Luis doesn’t seem to be too broken up about the divorce — he’s nonchalantly posting topless selfies on Instagram and promising fans that he’d be happy to meet them after the divorce is finalized.

He did, however, rant and rave about TLC because he claims that he wasn’t paid for his time on 90 Day Fiance.

It’s been speculated that non-American stars on the show may have to wait to be paid until they have their work visas, for legal reasons.

But Luis declared his threat to sue over it, saying that foreigners were simply used for free labor and discarded like trash. Yikes.

It’s probably safe to say that Luis has some regrets.


90 Day Fiance: Molly Hopkins’ Shady History Revealed!

Not all of the obstacles on 90 Day Fiance come from bureaucratic red tape or judgmental parents or lack of financing. A lot of issues arise when people haven’t been up front about their past.

There’s a lot going on with Molly and Luis, but the more that we learn about these two, the more concerns we have. Especially when it comes to Molly Hopkins and her newly exposed criminal history.

We know that every couple on 90 Day Fiance is unique, but … is Molly the new Danielle Mullins?

We know that it’s harder to keep up with new 90 Day Fiance couples than it is with the ones we’ve had years to get to know, so here’s a bit of a reminder about Molly and Luis.

Molly is 41 and comes from Woodstock, Georgia. Originally from Atlanta.

Molly was also a star of the reality series Double Divas for two seasons.

Luis, who is only 26, is from Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic.

It was in the DR that Luis and Molly met and eventually fell in love.

Molly and some of her friends were on a trip, Luis was bartending. It was a classic cougar-meets-boy romance.

Separated by a 15-year age gap and by nationality, they’re letting the 90 Day Fiance cameras follow them as they undergo the K-1 visa process.

But the couple faces other challenges.

For one thing, Molly has two daughters — not, in and of itself, a challenge. But her older daughter, Olivia, does not seem to be a fan of Luis or of the idea of him becoming her new stepdad.

(A stepdad who was only 12 when she was born? That’s not always a bad thing, but we can see why she might balk at it)

Molly’s father is also not convinced that Luis is right for her. He believes that Luis is just using Molly for her resources or citizenship or both.


On Sunday’s episode, Luis finally made it to Cougartown.

Wait, sorry … we mean to America. And into the embrace of Molly Hopkins.

Molly had to get her daughter, Olivia, to drive her to the airport.

Now, there are plenty of folks who can’t or don’t drive for a variety of reasons, but it’s only natural that fans wondered why Molly had to rely upon her daughter for this.

As it turns out, there’s a very good reason:

Molly Hopkins’ criminal history doesn’t really portray her as the best or safest driver.

Molly Hopkins Mugshot

This photo is only one of the mugshots that Molly Hopkins has accumulated.

Starcasm, bless them, did some digging, and came up with a list of Molly Hopkins’ arrests.

In 2008, Molly Hopkins was charged with possession of marijuana.

It was a misdemeanor charge, involving less than an ounce of the naughty plant that is, don’t forget, still illegal in many US states.

Molly’s May 2012 DUI arrest involved accusations of speeding and improperly changing lanes. But … we’re mostly concerned about the DUI.

In November of 2012, Molly had another mugshot taken, but records aren’t clear on why that happened … except that she was booked in a courtroom. She may have appeared in order to address the DUI.

In June of 2016, Molly was pulled over for speeding.

The officer administered a breathalyzer test and, well, she got another DUI.

Molly pleaded guilty and was sentenced to “72 hours in jail, two years of probation, and 240 hours of community service.”

(That sounds like Paul isn’t the only 90 Day Fiance star who is currently on shock probation)

But … what happened to Molly’s license?

She had two DUIs within the same 5 year span, and had to surrender her vehicle tags.

Which she did.

Now, all reality shows (just about) are filmed months in advance, so Molly filed for an early end to her probation in July and, in August, her wish was granted. She is still subject to random drug testing and may not have any alcohol in her house.

(To our horror, we just realized that Molly and Luis may have to have a dry wedding, if they make it to the altar. So Molly’s friends and family will be punished for her mistakes)

Starcasm notes that Molly had four non-DUI speeding tickets on top of all of this, which is probably more than most people get within their lives. That’s cause for concern, right?

Still, this kind of shady past isn’t quite the same Danielle Mullins’ criminal background, is it?

Just because she’s an older woman of means with children and Luis is a twenty-something younger man whom many suspect of looking for an easy route to American citizenship doesn’t mean that these two are the next Danielle Mullins and Mohamed Jbali.

But … let’s keep our eyes open.
