Virginia Coombs says she used to cry every Wednesday
Virginia Coombs took to her Instagram Stories to reshape a post about the MAFS Season 15 cast and add her own thoughts about the show.

Virginia then addressed the fans, writing, “To the fan base- please please please remember these are REAL people and your words online about them matter. I cried every Wednesday during my season reading what people said about me.”
In concluding her post, Virginia wrote, “And the end of the day, it’s a TV show, but these peoples lives and feelings are very real. And they put them all out there for your entertainment. Be kind.”
In a second post on her Instagram Stories, Virginia also acknowledged those who have chosen to be supportive rather than rude online.
