90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days star Lisa Hamme appeared in the fourth season. She seemed to be a replacement for the highly entertaining Angela Deem, but a lot more belligerent. Angela at least gave viewers some laughs while belittling her fiance Michael Ilesanmi. Lisa, on the other hand, was simply abrasive and rude to her man Usman Umar.
But, the tirades that we saw onscreen did not encompass the scope of Lisa’s verbal abuse towards Usman. Last month, leaked footage from the reunion revealed that Lisa used racial slurs in a prior conversation with her husband. It was unclear at the time how TLC would handle the situation. TLC decided to cut the footage entirely and sweep the verbal abuse under the rug. The reunion aired without any indication that Lisa used a derogatory racial slur. Now, TLC is facing backlash on that decision and moving quickly to distance themselves from Lisa.
Angela Deem was introduced to the world on 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days. Her outrageous personality solidified a slot on the following season. Angela chastised and belittled Nigerian fiance Michael Ilesanmi. She gifted reality TV junkies with memorable moments that include presenting Michael with Trump boxers and smashing a cake in his face.
And this colorful matriarch often included her family during filming. Angela’s two daughters participated in her scenes on the show. In her first season, Angela would often video chat with daughter Scottie. Then, Angela asked her other daughter Skyla to carry her and Michael’s child. But what we saw on TV falls short of a shocking truth that came home to roost for this family last year.
Where to even begin with this story? To even think about untangling the web these problematic, hypocritical, thirsty people have woven exhausts me. But here I go. So…to begin…I think we all know by now that Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute have been fired for their racist behavior. (Note: Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens were too, but that’s hardly as earth-shattering in comparison). These firings have caused a major uproar in the Bravoshere. This includes fans who don’t want the network to stop with just these four. Specifically, there is a call right now for the network to fire Jax Taylor.
When I say “fans” I am including 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson. Just like every love story that gently progresses from a Vegas cheating scandal, divorce threats, and clothes thrown in the street, Ashley and Jay Smith are now living together as a couple. Not only that, but Ashley has spoken out, via Instagram of course, to defend Jay while trashing Jax.
It’s great to be a fan of the 90 Day Fiance franchise, because there are so many spin-offs now that fans can watch the finale of one show then tune in to a new season the next night. That’s exactly what was experienced this week. 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days aired it’s reunion on Sunday night then season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way premiered on Monday.
We can watch the carnage of couples that have fallen out by the end of filming, to meeting new pairs that give us all the feels of hope and promise in a new love. One couple from The Other Way really stood out. They seem to have a very uplifting and respectful love for each other despite the cultural and age difference. They are Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier, also the first male same sex couple of the 90 Day Fiance franchise.
90 Day Fiance The Other Way is back!!!! This season, there are four new couples and two well-known train wrecks have returned. They definitely took the naive, crazy, and entitled and mixed them all together into one big ball of confusion. Just from watching the trailer, I have seen everything I need to see to confirm that I will be tuning in every week to see this shit show unfold. Join me every week watching these poor unfortunate souls beg fight for love.
Brittany learns Yazan’s family wants them married immediately, but she’s hiding a big secret. Jenny tells her daughters she’s returning to India yet again. Kenneth sells his house to be with his love. Let’s get straight to the recap!
Watching Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto at the reunion clearly showed two people on totally different wavelengths. This is one 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days couple that does not have to deal with a language barrier yet couldn’t be having more difficulties with communication.
They spoke over each other. Stephanie resorted to deflection. Erika was frustrated that she wasn’t able to present her side of the story. There was so much hurt between them that they couldn’t even look at each other by the end of it. But they weren’t finished yet. Since the Tell-All aired, Erika and Stephanie have been making public statements regarding their relationship.
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days is the conclusion of the two-part finale special. Although it’s not as action packed as Part 1, there are still many surprising updates that are uncovered. Host Shaun Robinson dives back in to discuss more of the biggest moments with the couples and updates on where their relationships stand now.
David sheds more light on his relationship with Lana. Usman Umar and Lisa Hamme talk about their plans for the future. Tom Brooks reveals his intentions with Avery Warner. Let’s get straight into the 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days recap!
This season of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days was one hot mess. And I mean that in the most complimentary of ways. After all, isn’t that why we watch? Part of the reason this season was so messy was the fact that NONE of the couples got along. Sometimes it was hard to believe they were in love, much less in like with each other.
One such couple that had problem after problem was Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto. Erika is a colorful (literally) Aussie and Stephanie is her
uptight girlfriend from Yonkers, New York. Further complicating matters is that neither of them were officially out as bisexual to their parents. It seemed like Stephanie didn’t want to admit anything to her conservative mother either way. Coupled with ongoing trust issues, they did nothing but fight during Stephanie’s visit to Australia. But one noticeable story line was Stephanie not wanting to touch or be affectionate with Erika. Stephanie later claimed it was because of medication but some aren’t buying it.
