"Don't forget to stretch before you reach," Tayshia, 30, commented on a Friday Instagram post about Josh, according to Us Weekly.

"CAN WE MOVE ON PLEASE AND STOP REACHING!!! Leave him alone this [is] about my journey and not my past!"

Tayshia subsequently shared her thoughts about the subject on Instagram Stories.

"I am dating 20 men on ABC, every single week, so the fact that we are continuously talking about my past relationship that was I don't know, three years ago, I don't get understand it," Tayshia said.

"He's living his life, I'm living my life... Why don't we leave him alone?"

Tayshia reportedly ended her video by dancing to "Smile (Living My Best Life)" by Ball Greezy, Snoop Dogg and Midnight Star.

Tayshia told Us last week she never even heard from Josh after landing the role of The Bachelorette star.

"Oh my gosh, no, I have not," Tayshia said. "And even if I have, I'm on cloud nine right now, just let a girl live!"

Tayshia and Josh got married in February 2016 after four years of dating.

Tayshia revealed on her Click Bait podcast earlier this month she and Josh separated after two years of marriage in August 2017 and then got divorced in April 2018 before she began filming Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor in September of that year.

At the end of The Bachelorette's November 10 episode, a man can be heard saying in the teaser promo for the rest of the season, "It's only a matter of time before she realizes the truth."

A TikTok user then noticed Josh was labeled as the man in question in the closed captioning of a promo ABC posted on Twitter, according to the magazine.

Tayshia opened up to The Bachelorette bachelor Brendan Morais about her divorce in last week's episode given Brendan has been through a similar situation with his high school sweetheart and former wife.

Tayshia said she married the man she had dated in college and eventually lost herself in the marriage.

"My identity was him, but unfortunately there was infidelity and other issues, not on my part. And then we got divorced and I, too, felt like I failed. I, too, felt embarrassed and ashamed... So I know exactly what you mean," Tayshia told Brendan, who confirmed infidelity, however, did not play a role in his divorce.

Tayshia told the cameras going through a divorce was "a big deal" at the time.

"I thought I was dying when I was going through it," Tayshia revealed, adding that Brendan made her feel like she wasn't alone.

On the October 22 episode of her Click Bait podcast, Tayshia insisted she had done everything possible to save her marriage to Josh.

"You should try to work it out and do everything you possibly can," Tayshia explained to Hannah Ann Sluss and Joe Amabile.

"When things were getting really bad, we were like, 'Okay, we need to go see a counselor.' Actually, that was my doing, because I knew I needed to do absolutely everything in order to know that was the end of the road, because in my mind, divorce isn't a thing."

Tayshia added, "Marriage is forever. So I kicked and screamed and made sure we did marriage counseling, and at that point, you kind of walk through some things and you try as hard as you can, but you can't force someone to love you."

Tayshia apparently felt she was putting all of her time and energy into fixing her marriage without much effort back from Josh.

"So you've got to go your own separate way," Tayshia concluded.

Tayshia, a former phlebotomist from Orange County, CA, was eliminated from Colton's The Bachelor season during his round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.

Tayshia was widely reported to be a frontrunner to star on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season last year, but the position ultimately went to Hannah Brown.

Tayshia therefore appeared on the 2019 edition of Bachelor in Paradise, where she fell in love with John Paul Jones but dumped him before the season concluded.

While the couple briefly reconciled and began dating in the real world after leaving Paradise, Tayshia and John Paul ultimately split in October 2019.

Just days before Clare Crawley was announced as The Bachelorette's Season 16 leading lady, Tayshia admitted to Entertainment Tonight that she would be "ready" for the gig.

"I have to say, anything that comes my way, I am ready for," Tayshia shared in late February. "I am ready for love!"
