The show was filmed nearly a year ago after Javi returned home from his 8-month deployment and their divorce was close to being finalized. “Before going on the show, [our relationship] was so up and down there were extreme highs and extreme lows, just a little it of chaos,” she said.

Even though Kail explained the reason she went on the show was to better their co-parenting relationship, she admitted “there were always thoughts” of getting back together with Javi! “Wild thoughts, that I maybe could see it working but something else would happen where I would be like, ‘This is why we got divorced and this is why it won’t work ever again.'”

As of today, their relationships is “the same.” She added, “it’s still a roller coaster, still ups and downs. I never know, one day its good, one day its bad.”
