For better or worse, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live. Is that really the going rate for 90 Day Fiance marriages? After a solid seven years of watching these cross-global relationships triumph and fail, that’s the question 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? seeks to answer.
TLC has reached its sixth season of Happily Ever After. A show that has brought us such extreme cringe and jaw dropping moments, it’s hard to forget. Some of us are still recovering from last season’s chaos. But alas, the time has come to see the list of people eager to show it all off once again!
Deep down, we knew this day would come. Despite Paul Staehle’s pregnancy announcement on Karine Staehle’s behalf back in May, many of us were hoping, praying, and wishing that it wouldn’t be real. We hoped that Karine would have a better chance of being rid of this garbage person forever. It’s what she deserves! #FREEKARINE And while I have some of your attention, let’s remember Karine was a young 21 year old woman when these two met. She spoke limited English and was living in extreme poverty. She was even younger when they first started chatting. Paul was 34. Yea they’re both consenting adults, but be serious. They’re not equal partners in this fucked up relationship.
Paul has spent countless hours dragging his wife, and young mother of his children, all over social media. He’s also slowly whittled away her use of her platform. The things he’s accused her of seemingly know no bounds. It’s almost like he enjoys the drama more than his life partner or something. The couple, who originally gained popularity during their 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days appearance, have since fallen to bits. Divorce was on the horizon for them. That is, until Karine became pregnant for a second time.
David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan first appeared on 90 Day Fiance Season 5. At first glance, they seemed like the stereotypical couple on the show. You know, the ones that fans assume won’t work out because of age and cultural differences.
But after dealing with difficult issues such as David’s drinking and lack of income, these two are still going strong. David calls Annie his queen, and she isn’t shy about how much she enjoys their “boom boom” together. They appeared on 90 Day Fiance Pillow Talk, 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After, and are featured on a five episode spinoff. It was on the latest episode that David revealed just a little too much information about a mishap he had with his veneers.
There are always those reality shows that just refuse to quit no matter how repetitive, overdone, or exhausting the cast and story-lines become. Teen Mom and Jersey Shore come to mind. So does 90 Day Fiance and the billion mix-and-match shows that have stemmed from this franchise. Some viewers really watch former stars of the show simply watch themselves on the 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk version. I mean really. It’s just lazy at this point.
Viewers aren’t the only ones begging for new twists, story lines, and cast. The eye-rolls are coming from inside the house.
Brittany Banks and Yazan Abo Horira’s relationship was puzzling at best. The mismatched couple fought constantly on 90 Day Fiance The Other Way last season. It was volatile, and the tender moments were few. Both Brittany and Yazan’s safety seemed at risk, as the progressive aspects of their relationship clashed with Yazan’s conservative culture.
Viewers assumed that there was a lot that happened behind the scenes between Brittany and Yazan. Did they have an agreement? Were they just looking to get on reality TV? It just doesn’t make sense otherwise.
Kalani Faagata is the daughter of biracial parents. Her mother married a Samoan national, and Kalani did the same when she wed Asuelu Pulaa. Interestingly, she is one of the few 90 Day Fiance Americans that married a foreigner of their own heritage. They now have two sons that are also being raised in an American-Samoan household.
Kalani is a striking woman. It may be hard to pinpoint her heritage at a quick glance, but her beauty is undeniable. Unfortunately, Kalani has experienced moments when people have racially profiled her, not seeing her as an individual but as a factor of skin color.
Here we go again. Paul Staehle from 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After is back to the off-screen drama. Maybe forever this time.
Paul has never been too shy to run to the press with his latest sob story or other dramatic moment. I’ll never forget the disgusting kitchy scene he tried to make happen in the tampon aisle. I’m also starting to think the machete cell-phone robbery was completely fake. He does the most. It’s almost like he relies on the measly checks from the 90 Day Fiance world to pay the bills. What’s his job again?
