Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance was entertaining, to say the least. We learned many of these individuals are even more desperate than we originally thought. The truly entertaining part is that they are finally realizing it. I love it when reality sets in! Can these 90 Day Fiance couples make things work or will they decide they are better off alone?
Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio continue to discuss the prenup. Angela Deem goes wedding dress shopping. Emily and Sasha arrive in the United States. Robert and Anny go apartment hunting. Anna Campisi gives Mursel Mistanoglul an ultimatum. Natalie panics about her differences with Mike. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance recap!
Michael, 41 (Greenwich, Connecticut) and Juliana, 23 (Brazil)
Michael has to break the news to Juliana that if they ever get a divorce she will not be leaving with a visa AND his money. To add insult to injury, it was Michael’s ex-wife, Sarah, who informed her of the plan for a prenup.
Michael, your ex is way too involved in your relationship. I don’t think any woman would appreciate being in this situation.
Just a few weeks until the wedding, Michael takes Juliana to a mediator to discuss the prenup. I actually felt bad for Juliana during the meeting. I’m glad she had a mediator who understood her interests because Michael surely didn’t. Once the mediation is over, Juliana decides she wants to be independent. She can’t fully rely on Michael. Well, at least she knows.

She recounts when they broke up a year ago and she wasn’t able to depend on him financially. On the way home, Juliana becomes emotional when she realizes how much she needs Michael to survive, at this point. She knows he has all the power in the relationship because she has no money. Well, at least she is realizing this sooner than later. If she is smart, she will get him to invest in a business that is just her name, while they are married.
Emily, 28 (Portland, Oregon) and Sasha, 31 (Russia)
Sasha and Emily are welcomed back to America by her mother and sister at the airport. Sasha might as well be chopped liver. All eyes are on the baby and they barely recognize that he is there. When Emily’s family finds out the full truth about his past, they may never look in his direction again.
Sasha has his first taste of American cuisine, sugary cereal. A health-conscious Sasha is shocked and decides to whip everyone into shape, including Emily’s sister. I’m not sure how this living situation is going to work with him critiquing everyone’s eating and exercise habits.
Emily’s sister is shocked that Emily works out now. In high school, Emily took band, just to avoid physical activity. At the gym, Emily shares her insecurities with Sasha. She worries that she could be his third ex-wife if she doesn’t maintain her weight and appearance.
Angela, 53 (Hazlehurst, Georgia) and Michael, 29 (Nigeria)
Angela prepares for Michael Ilesanmi’s arrival to Bumpkinville in just a few months. Michael is in for a rude awakening when he steps into Mimaw’s home daycare Angela’s house. Angela has a family meeting with her mother, daughter, and the grandchildren to set some ground rules. Rule number 1: Michael’s in charge! Ummm… chile please! We all know Angela wears the pants and penis in that relationship.
Angela takes her daughter wedding dress shopping with her. This should be good! Angela comes out in the first dress. All I can think is she needs to invest in a good bra. But with a few more sessions of Botox and a professional glam squad, she may just surprise us all.
Mike, 34 (Seguim,Washington) and Natalie, 35 (Ukraine)
Natalie decides to drag Mike to church despite the fact that he believes more in aliens than God. Hmmm… Something tells me this isn’t going to go well. Natalie takes him to a beautiful church on a mission to save his soul. She reveals that she is scared of people who don’t believe in God. Girl, you were just asking him to marry you and have a baby and now you are scared of him? Sigh! If her goal is to build a man, she may want to look elsewhere. He doesn’t seem like the type to just roll over and allow someone to control him.
The next morning, a cheery Mike walks into the kitchen to find a sulking Natalie. If looks could kill! Michael is completely confused as to why Natalie is upset and doesn’t want to translate her mother’s conversation. We find out she is angry that he doesn’t want to have a baby yet. Umm… is anyone else getting a crazy vibe here?
This woman was just going off about him being an atheist, now she wants to plan for a baby again. Natalie has a full emotional breakdown and runs to the bedroom to cry. Run, Mike, run! Something is definitely off here. I understand a woman’s biological clock, but he did tell her upfront he wasn’t ready for a child just yet. It’s like she has totally dismissed everything he told her about himself. The delusion is real!
Anna, 38 (Bellevue, Nebraska) and Mursel, 38 (Turkey)
With the pressure of the upcoming wedding, Anna’s friends throw her a bachelorette party. When the drinks start to flow, the interrogation begins. Everyone is concerned that she may be rushing into things and making a mistake. I am concerned as well after learning she can only drink once a week and there will be no sex on those occasions. Boring! No, I am kidding. I am more concerned about the example she is showing her kids by marrying someone who won’t accept them.
Mursel senses something is off with Anna and questions if she is happy. She tells him she isn’t okay with hiding her sons anymore. Thank goodness! She gives Mursel an ultimatum, tell his family or the wedding is off.

Ughhh… I can barely watch them. It feels dirty. It’s like watching her attempt a relationship with a child. Mursel pouts and asks her to sacrifice for him, as he has done for her. Does he expect her to just act as if her children don’t exist? Anna, you needed your friends and family to tell you this was wrong? You look desperate, sis. I’m sure some man in town would love to have free honey for life.
Robert, 41 (Winter Park, Florida) and Anny, 30 (Dominican Republic)
Anny has had enough of sharing the bed with little Bryson and her man. She finally convinces Robert to go look for a two-bedroom apartment. She immediately falls in love with the first apartment they see. When the realtor reveals the price, I know immediately that it’s a “no.”
Tempers flare when Robert conveniently shares that he already re-signed his current lease for another year. WTF! I’m with Anny. I would have gone off as well. He knew when she was coming to the US. Why would he renew a lease on that tiny apartment then take her to look at new apartments? The argument in front of the realtor is just embarrassing.

Robert proceeds to call Anny “selfish and inconsiderate” because she is upset. Umm… sir, what did you expect? Who promises a woman something, takes them to see it and then gets upset when they want it? Robert, just admit to Anny that you are broke. She may re-evaluate her expectations or go back to the Dominican Republic.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK NATALIE WANTS TO COMPLETELY CHANGE MIKE? SHOULD ANNY BE MAD THAT ROBERT BROUGHT HER TO SEE AN APARTMENT HE HAD NO INTENTION OF RENTING? ARE ANNA AND MURSEL DOOMED? DO YOU THINK JULIANA IS GETTING THE SHORT END OF THE STICK OR AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A BETTER LIFE?
