She talked about the exes who publicly claim past romantic connections even though the person in question is either married or has moved on to a new relationship. Nessa expressed her opinion that there should be a level of class and respect in discussing such matters, suggesting that people could handle it more gracefully. Her motivation for addressing the topic stemmed from a recent podcast in which actress Melissa Joan Hart revealed her past relationship with Ryan Reynolds. Probably, Nessa’s message could be directed towards her ex-partner, Aldon Smith, in addition to Ryan Reynolds.
