90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days cast member Kimberly Menzies has quickly learned that being on TV comes with its share of drawbacks, the most obvious being the negative criticisms.
The newly minted TLC personality knows how to laugh at herself and she often reshares memes that make fun of her online. However, Kimberly just admitted on social media that sometimes the negative comments do test her self-worth.
Kimberly has been the butt of many online jokes due to her relationship with Nigerian rapper Usman ‘Sojaboy’ Umar which is still playing out on the show.

However, she’s trying to take it all in stride.
