So much reality TV, so little time. We are thankful for DVR since there are a lot of time conflicts with some reality TV great shows. Check out our reality TV listings of shows to watch this week!
90-Day Fiance Reunion
Sigh. It seems like only yesterday that these mild-to-highly disturbed folks came into our lives, but alas, ‘tis time to say goodbye! Before the six couples of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days float on down the rancid river of their bad decisions forever, we at least get one final rumble on a very tiny couch, complete with Angela popping off on Rachel while two grown men physically restrain her. And really, what more could we ask for?
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 Couples Tell All reunion is here!
And you know what that means: The entire cast is about to be crammed on to one tiny couch to claw each other’s eyes out in the name of love and fodderhood. Plus, their partners in crime are all set to Skype in via large screen TV to fight with them through the magic of broadband, with only Shaun Robinson poised betwixt them to control the chaos. Or maybe just gawk at it?
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 After Tell 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.
What do you get when you bring six dysfunctional couples together (minus one Luis), dress them up, then let them openly judge one another’s abysmal choices in life? Yes, it’s time for the 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After Couples Tell All, part one! Shaun Robinson is back to host/mediate the madness, and we are here to eat our popcorn and watch how long it takes for Jorge to start lying his eyebrows clean off.
Before the cast is assembled on the couch, the drama begins. Paola, who came HARD for Anfisa last year – calling her an ugly mail-order bride – decides to apologize to Anfisa backstage for the sake of appearances. But when she approaches Anfisa Of The Dead Shark Eyes, Paola has no idea what she’s in for – because homegirl just flat out ignores her before brushing right past her without a word! Immediately, Paola starts popping off about what a b*tch Anfisa is and how she’s “not going to beg anyone for forgiveness.” (Um…you might want to rethink this first move, Pao. This is not going to end well for anyone not named Anfisa.) Thus, this disaster of a reunion begins…
We have travelled a long, weary, karate-kicking road. And here we are once again at the end of another journey
through the sewer. Tonight 90-Day Fiance Happily Ever After will air part one of its two-part Couples Tell All reunion, complete with accusations, lies, justifications…and maybe even a Family Chantel-inspired fistfight? And we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Shaun Robinson will host this season’s six couples, some of whom have a bitter history with one another from Tell Alls of yesteryear. Anfisa, specifically, will come prepared for battle. Since Jorge (and just about everyone else) threw her under the bus last year for her alleged “prositutorial” work, she’s been gathering her strength and purse-swinging skills to swat back at the haters. Also, it looks like homegirl might have smuggled a shank underneath her coat backstage. #speculation
It’s the final episode of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, and I feel like I just got off a carnival ride that was left spinning a tad too long. You know the feeling – a little bit sick, a touch disoriented, but mostly just grateful to be alive! Yes, we made it to the end, people. But the couples on these reunion couches might not even make it out of their hotels, let alone to their golden anniversaries.
Last night, Anfisa and Jorge were isolated for a “private” chat with host Shaun Robinson, in which Jorge slung accusations and Anfisa ultimately walked off stage. Interesting points included Jorge looking totally stoned from beginning to end of this entire “Tell All” and Anfisa not lashing out at him with her characteristic rage. (But we haven’t seen his car/home/pet bunny as evidence yet, so truthfully, we have no idea what form her revenge will take.) Also, TLC decided to throw one more tent into this circus by showing us the rest of the dysfunctional couples’ reactions to Jorge and Anfisa while their segment rolled along. To which I say, well played, TLC. Embrace your crazy! Except, let’s get Loren and Paola muzzled next time, mmkay?
