"I have surgery," Ashley said of the Tuesday, February 12 procedure. "It is going to be discussed on the show so I'd rather not talk about it. The surgery will help me long term and it's a long recovery."

In January, Ashley was hospitalized for kidney failure amid her ongoing Lupus battle.

"It's not a kidney transplant," she clarified. "When I was first admitted that was the plan. They wanted to put a port in and start dialysis. Dialysis is rough. There was a small chance we can do medication to see if that would work before dialysis. It ended up working for now."

But with her illness came accusations of fakery. When Ashley stepped out with Jay earlier this month in New York City, fans accused her of lying about her illness because of her healthy appearance.

"I'm being attacked by my appearance," she said. "Makeup and hair can make a difference. Makeup does a lot. It's an invisible illness. You look fine from the outside, but inside you feel horrible. Right now we're being thrown under for me faking the illness. It's awful. Still I'm being told I'm a liar."

Because of the rumors, fans reported a GoFundMe page friends made for her to help pay medical bills.

"I've gotten a lot of heat about the GoFundMe," she said. "We don't get paid a lot. Once we realized the medicine was working, I told her to stop it since there were people donating."

Ashley, 32, and Jay, 20, are contemplating returning the money because they are "sick of being scrutinized."

"We have notified them that we quit the show," Ashley told Radar. "The final straw was when our story started to become inconsistent because what we were being asked to hide and not tell followers."

On the show, Ashley discovered Jay was talking to women on hookup app Tinder only a day after their Las Vegas wedding. Although they appeared broken up on social media, she claimed they never ended their marriage.

"I stayed by his side after the Tinder scandal," she said. "They wanted us to keep everything private and say we weren't together, but when people were seeing us out they thought we were lying. We never confirmed or denied our relationship status."

Ashley claimed the network advising them to keep their relationship under wraps "ruined" their credibility.

In addition to focusing on her health during their break from the spotlight, they will also continue to work on their brand. "We have a pajama and underwear line coming," she said. "We want to focus on our personal lives."

"I did save my eggs," she said. "If I were in the financial position I would have a surrogate. But Jay is not in the position at all."
