Last night, Shaun Robinson hosted the 90 Day version of a TLC reunion, known as The Couples Tell All, in which the American fiances come together (plus Jesse, who would attend the opening of an envelope if it meant more screen time) to talk to their Skyped-in lovahs. At each Tell All, we are promised updates on the couples’ plans since we’ve seen them last. But what we actually get at these twisted shindigs is OH SO much more.
Even though each and every cast member of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days could single-handedly bring enough dramatic trash TV to carry an entire season, tonight we’re in for a real treat. Because the CouplesTell All reunionis here!
TLC’s previews are keeping tonight’s drama on strict lockdown, but we do see glimpses of what may befall our American-foreign lovebirds. As for the 7th(ish) couple, Marta and Daya, their relationship was basically dead on arrival, so let’s just allow them to RIP.
90 Day Fiancé has brought us many dramatic couples over the years. Molly Hopkins and her (now ex) husband, Luis, are no exception. Molly and Luis’s love affair was documented on last season’s 90 Day Fiancé, and continued on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, where viewers witnessed the dissolution of their marriage once and for all.
Molly recently sat down to chat with me on my podcast, Pink Shade With Erin Martin, to explain what unfolded behind the scenes of TLC’s hit show, how Luis changed his tune when he came to the U.S., and how she’s been dealing with the backlash of social media since the shows have aired. “We believe part of what we hear, and ALL of what we see,” says Molly, explaining how the backstory she shared with Luis was vastly different from the one we watched.
It was only a matter of time before The Family Chantel busted in again to offer their two cents (which, incidentally, they do NOT want harvested by foreign in-laws). And last night they did just that last night on the 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever AfterTell All, which caused Pedro to walk off stage, leaving Chantel to debate the challenges of marriage with the two people who continuously butt their noses into hers. Jorge and Anfisa faced off with Paola and Russ, of the matching bedazzled shoes. Annie threatened to leave David again if he can’t manage to scrape two Bahts together, while Molly droned on some more about what a loser Luis is. In the end, she’s kind of the only winner here because she dumped her extra baggage.
But not so fast! We also got an entire hour after the Tell All that took us on the death march toward Nicole and Azan’s wedding/possible double-murder by Robbalee. Although I won’t be recapping that last hour here, feel free to comment on all of the insanity below! Ah, 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After, thanks for the memories. We laughed, we cried, we cringed so hard our couches almost swallowed us up. Now, let’s bring on some new couples! (Don’t forget to tune in next week for Before The 90 Days, which will be bringing us a new batch of crazies fresh outta the catfish pond.)
It’s Christmas in July! It’s everyone’s birthday! It’s a BRAND NEW 90 Day Fiance spinoff, coming to our TV screens in the (hopefully) not too distant future!
Given the ratings gold that 90 Day Fiance has become for TLC over the past year, the network recently announced yet another spinoff in the works. 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way will feature American men and women who fall in love with partners from distant lands, then travel to their home countries to begin their married lives abroad.
There’s finally some good news in 90 Day Fiance land: Russ and Paola Mayfield are expecting their first child! The 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After alums documented their struggles to start a family this season, even discussing the heartbreaking miscarriage Paola suffered with her first pregnancy.
Because of Paola’s Rh-negative blood type, she learned that carrying a child to full term posed some challenges. But as we saw on the show, doctors assured her that treatment was available to battle those challenges. And it looks like it worked because the couple is reporting that their baby’s heartbeat is strong and the mom-to-be is doing well.
