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.
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
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?
Happy Labor Day! In honor of the long weekend, 90 Day Fiance has brought us another gruesome installment of the reunion from hell for us to feast upon. Hooray! Shaun Robinson is back with the gang to talk over people call them out about their intentions, and to stop Loren from taking over as host. Because that chick came to these couches with an agenda, as last week certainly revealed. Loren isn’t quite done berating Anfisa about her gold-digging ways, however, even taking the fight backstage to browbeat Jorge. Good thing Jorge is used to being browbeaten – not to mention, actually beaten (why hasn’t anyone called Anfisa out on that sh*t yet, by the way?!)
But first, Russ needs to go find his wife, who dramatically marched off stage last week after he blabbed that she’s not getting much work as a model these days. Instead of addressing the obvious (both of their total fakery), Russ and Paola play-act backstage, rehashing the lingerie argument for the thousandth time. After they exhaust themselves with reciting their very limited lines, they are whisked backstage with the rest of the group to take five. Because (cue the Friday The 13th music) it’s time for Danielle and Mohamed to face off ALONE. Even Walmart Tom can’t save them now.
It’s hard to believe any host would sign up to sit down with the ne’er do wells of 90 Day Fiance, but Shaun Robinson is back for more! In last night’s Tell All: Part One, Shaun mediated the fights, accusations, and general delusion plaguing most of this cast. Specifically, Loren acted as mouthpiece for the masses by calling out Anfisa and Mohamed on their shadiness. But Loren’s missing a rather large piece of that dysfunctional equation – i.e., their American counterparts, Jorge and Danielle, who would both greatly benefit from securing a hardcore life coach. But if we had a cast with basic relationship skills, we wouldn’t have a show! And what a show it is.
Loren and Paola are apparently friends outside of the show, but the interesting characteristic of this reunion versus other reality TV ventures is that most of the couples don’t know each other one bit. They are in a similar position as we, the viewers, are when it comes to forming an opinion about one another. In other words, they get their info from TV. And in some cases, they NO like what they see! Also, some of the couples have scores to settle here, Jorge and Danielle being two of them. So when Anfisa and Mohamedbarely drag their a$$es to the reunion on time, they give their exes plenty of extra time to stew. The stage is set for fright night, ya’ll!
