The drama between Debbie Johnson and her son, Colt Johnson’s new girlfriend is mounting in the recent episodes of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. Last week Colt’s new lady, Jess Caroline, introduced momma Deb to her family in Brazil. It all ended with Deb calling Jess’ father weird (pot, meet kettle) and getting in a cab to go home alone. Watching Colt hoist his mother into a cab by her ass just about ended me. Then there was the beach scene. I can’t go on.
I’m not sure if Deb realizes that her son dating is what keeps them on the show. It’s not like she doesn’t love the insta-fame. In fact, Debbie seems to hate Jess so much she actually misses Coltee’s ex, Larissa Dos Santos Lima. Apparently even Larissa had some comments about Jess and Colt. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess. Anyways, I know it can be hard to let your life partner/child go…but it’s time Debbie. Be strong.
If I’m being honest, Laura Jallali is not one of my 90 Day Fiance favorites. When we were first introduced to her on 90 Day Fiance The Other Way, I was side-eyeing her from the get-go. I can look past her 20 year age difference from finance-turned-husband, Aladin Jallali. To each their own, right? But considering they were only dating 8 months and Laura’s son Liam strongly disapproved, fans weren’t wrong to be skeptical. Liam warned us that Laura wasn’t great at choosing healthy relationships and boy, was he right.
It was a little surprise to
almost all of us that they broke up not long after the wedding. Aladin accused her of catfishing him and cheating. Laura accused him of using her for money and blamed the show for their break up. The tell all was a damn trainwreck to say the least. I could have told you these two would have issues the second she threw her vibrator away for him. But I wasn’t expecting this level of drama!
Michael Jessen and Juliana Custodio are one of the 90 Day Fiance couples that could have been judged harshly at first. With a twenty-year age difference, it’s no wonder that consulate officials in her native Brazil questioned the legitimacy of their relationship.
Many viewers also questioned Michael’s intentions when insisted on a prenup to safeguard his fortune. It was hard to watch Juliana’s confusion and frustration at the time. However, Michael backed off and they managed to work through it. Juliana seemed to fit into Michael’s life, caring for his children and becoming close with his ex-wife Sarah. She even officiated at their wedding.
The 90 Day Fiance franchise is still going strong after multiple seasons and spinoffs. There’s something very entertaining about watching love span borders and cultures. And if it isn’t love, then it’s just a lot of delusion. Thanks to international dating sites, every citizen of the globe has the chance of snagging a lonely American. The real prize is the Green Card of course.
Of course, the premise for the show is that one partner travels internationally to meet the other. And with the border closures, quarantines, and disrupted air travel due to coronavirus, there is no chance of filming for new seasons. So while sweethearts pine for each other all over the world, TLC exec’s have come up with a solution to give us fans a much-needed hit.
