After watching last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance, I was left very confused. I didn’t know whether to feel pity or happy that the rose colored glasses have been removed for some. I know they say love is blind, but I didn’t know it removed all of your senses.
Anna Campisi reveals shocking news to her family. Angela Deem fights to get Michael Ilesanmi‘s visa. Syngin Colchester wants more from Tania Maduro. Mike has tough questions for Natalie. Emily’s sister grills Sasha about his past. Blake‘s mom attempts to bond with Jasmin. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance recap!
Anna, 38 (Bellevue, Nebraska) and Mursel, 38 (Turkey)
Anna is an emotional wreck after Mursel’s family convinced him to call off the wedding. Frankly, I don’t know why she is surprised when he asked her to hide her own children. When Anna’s mom arrives at her house, she grills Mursel on his intentions. It’s apparent he is afraid to stand against his family, despite his love for Anna. The most heartbreaking moment was seeing the faces of Anna’s two youngest sons after finding out Mursel is leaving.
Anna’s mom quickly gives up any hope of seeing her daughter married and just wants Mursel out of the house. Honestly, I can’t blame the mother. Mursel knew Anna had children before he arrived. He also knew his family wouldn’t accept their marriage. So if he chose to marry her anyway, he should have been honest.
Anna shares the news about Mursel’s decision to leave with her oldest son. Although he seems indifferent, it’s obvious he is upset that his mother is hurt. Mursel has been staying in a hotel after he decided to call off the wedding. He has received several emotional and angry text messages from Anna all night. When Mursel calls Anna crying, I couldn’t help but laugh.
After spending so much time in a relationship where she can barely communicate, she has adopted his rudimentary English. She screams into the phone “no us finished” before hanging up. Sigh! Just throw this whole story line away. At this point, I just want them to break up. It’s not even entertaining anymore, it’s just kind of sad.
Angela, 53 (Hazlehurst, Georgia) and Michael, 29 (Nigeria)
Angela decides to take matters in her own hands and fight for her man. She visits with her lawyer to find out what options are available to get Michael to the U.S. Her options at this point are to either appeal or reapply for a visa. Both options will take many months of waiting in order to be together. At the age of 54, Angela refuses to waste any more time.
Angela is frantically running around trying to make it to the airport for her flight to Nigeria. She wants to speak to Michael in person to find out what happened during his visa interview. Knowing Michael, he probably came draped in the flag and talked more about loving the U.S. than Angela.
In order to be proactive, he seeks legal advice on next steps after being denied. He is advised to get married in Nigeria and then apply for a spousal visa. Angela has already made it clear she only wants to get married in the U.S. where her family can be in attendance. Hopefully, she doesn’t throw another cake in his face when he tells her.
Blake, 29 (Los Angeles, California) and Jasmin, 27 (Finland)
Jasmin is still stuck at Blake’s parents’ house begrudgingly. His mother attempts to bond with her by asking for her help in the kitchen. When Jasmin is asked about her future plans it’s obvious she would rather be anywhere, but that apartment. Ugh… There is something I just can’t stand about her. The girl acts like being around Blake’s friends and family is a form of torture.
Tania, 29 (Colchester, Connecticut) and Syngin, 29 (South Africa)
Syngin visits Tania’s sister to get advice about his fiancé. It’s sad her family has more empathy for Syngin than the woman who brought him to the U.S. to marry him. The poor guy is so shocked by Tania’s behavior he is beginning to think there is a chance she is cheating. If Syngin had any sense he would run after getting a taste of Tania and her mother.
Its Tania’s last week in Costa Rica and she is out partying with the girls again. While dancing with another man, she gets a video call from Syngin. Tania is completely drunk and refuses to let her man know when she makes it home safely. Is this girl 15 years old? If a man cares about you, why wouldn’t he want to know she is safe after a night out drinking in a foreign country? Tania completely disregards Syngin’s feelings and just hangs up in his face.
Syngin, please take the next flight home. This woman isn’t ready to be anyone’s wife. She isn’t even worthy of the sacrifice you have made living a shed after leaving your entire life for her.
Tania has the nerve to be upset that she woke up to missed calls from a worried Syngin. This girl has to be one of the most selfish people to ever be on this show. Would she prefer that he didn’t care about her at all?
When they finally talk the next day she argues she doesn’t need a dad and can’t give him everything he needs. If I was living in a SHED for a woman and she couldn’t even bother to call me, I would be done. Okay, I wouldn’t live in a shed for anyone, but that sounded good.
Robert, 41 (Winter Park, Florida) and Anny, 30 (Dominican Republic)
Robert’s little sister, Robin, is in town to visit her brother and finally meet Anny. On the way to the apartment, Robert reveals he is starting to have second thoughts about the relationship. Things immediately get awkward when Anny tells his sister everything that she doesn’t like about Robert. One of her main complaints is not having enough sex. Ummmm… talk about awkward.
Anny takes Robin with her wedding dress shopping. She doesn’t have any family in the U.S. and needs her support. Robin immediately asks about the budget knowing full well her brother isn’t paying for an expensive dress. Surprisingly she finds a beautiful dress that is within her budget of $400 or less. After finding the perfect dress she becomes emotional. I actually like Robin better than Robert. I wonder if she and Anny will remain friends when if things don’t work out.
Mike, 34 (Seguim, Washington) and Natalie, 35 (Ukraine)
Mike goes to the Embassy to check on the status on Natalie’s visa application and leaves even more confused. He finds out that the status is still pending and all information is classified. When he meets with Natalie, he questions if she is hiding something. Natalie immediately becomes defensive when she hears the accusations.
Now Michael, surely there was a better way you could have broached this subject. Natalie vehemently denies ever lying or applying for a visa in the past. She storms from the table only to return to the table and gives him the crazy eyes. Mike apologizes for coming off harshly. Let’s be honest, there are several reasons these two should part. This should be the last of their concerns.
Emily, 28 (Portland, Oregon) and Sasha, 31 (Russia)
Sasha and Emily’s sister, Betsy, and mom sit down and have a glass of wine while discussing his past. Things get very awkward when his pattern of having children and then marrying the mothers is brought up. Betsy allows the liquid courage to propel her to not only grill Sasha, but also explain the fundamentals of marriage.
It’s apparent that she doesn’t trust Sasha and is only humoring him out of love for Emily and her nephew. I don’t blame her. His situation would give anyone a reason to give him the side eye.
After a trip to the grocery store, Sasha decides to throw away all of Betsy’s “junk” food. Of course, that isn’t received well and incites an argument. Did Sasha forget he is living under Emily’s sister’s roof and not his own? Emily feels torn between her sister and her fiancé. She suggests they leave for the sake of their relationship. I think that is the best decision she could have made. Things were only going to get worse in that house.
TELL US- DO YOU THINK MURSEL MADE THE RIGHT DECISION TO CALL OFF THE WEDDING? SHOULD JASMIN’S PARENTS PAY FOR HER WEDDING? IS TANIA SELFISH OR JUST INDEPENDENT? SHOULD ROBERT AND ANNY GET MARRIED? DO YOU THINK MIKE OVERREACTED ABOUT NATALIE’S VISA INFORMATION BEING CLASSIFIED? WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT SASHA THROWING AWAY BETSY’S FOOD IN HER HOUSE?
