Paul Staehle and his wife Karine Staehle are the couple that dropped the word divorce many times in their tenure on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. It diluted the sting of it. And if they didn’t split up after Karine watched Paul climb into a doghouse and start talking to himself, what could possibly tear these two apart?
Maybe it was living together long-term that did it. After being apart off and on for many years, Paul was finally able to move his wife and their 7-month-old son Pierre Martins Staehle to the United States in June of this year. But the supposed happiness of reuniting the family didn’t last long.
90 Day Fiance spinoff 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way successfully drew audiences in with a new premise: have the American partner move to a foreign country. Part of the appeal was watching the U.S. citizen reacting to their new culture and navigating the ways of the country.
For Deavan Clegg, it was the adjustment of living in a small space with husband Jihoon Lee and his parents. Since the show ended, Deavan often shares pictures of her life in Korea. And goodness, the food looks amazing! Unfortunately, the learning curve of living in a new country sometimes has negative consequences as well. Especially when it comes to decisions about body and health issues.
We have made it through the first season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. Like other shows in the franchise, this version lured me in and got me hooked. I might not have learned anything and my IQ might be 10 points lower for having watched, but boy it was fun. Quality television that delivers!
Out of all the couples on the show, Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee were arguably the most likeable and relatable. Sure, they made some bad decisions, like getting pregnant immediately after meeting, but both seemed to have their hearts, if not their decision-making skills in the right place. One thing I could not figure out during the season was why Deavan was moving to South Korea when she had a job and family in the U.S., while Jihoon was struggling to get by. Deavan recently revealed how she came to the decision to move and her purported reasons behind it are both sad and shocking.
Laura Jallali has joined a bevy of 90 Day Fiance ladies that lured their younger partners in under seemingly false pretenses. Laura, Rebecca, and Angela Deem all admitted to catfishing their men initially with outdated photos, filters, and all the best image-enhancing technology that exists.
Us 90 Day Fiance junkies were able to witness Zied and Michael Ilesanmi’s reaction as they met their significant others for the first time. But what about Aladin Jallali? He had already seen Laura in person, married, and consummated the union with a bit of short-lived and unsatisfying jiggy-jiggy, according to her. Actually, most of what we know about this couple is based on what Laura has said. She was the more vocal of the two at the “Couples Tell-All” reunion while Aladin admitted to struggling with the language and regretting not speaking through an interpreter. Finally, Aladin got a chance to share his side of the story by posting a series of videos on social media meant as a response to topics his ex-wife brought up on the show.
Well, the first season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way has wrapped up and I have a feeling we will be seeing more of the show in seasons to come. Having the Americans go to other countries, where they will conceivably live in the future put a new spin on the franchise. The cast checked all of the boxes for viewers: naivete, impulsivity and an utter disdain for common sense, personal dignity and conventional social behavior. In other words, good reality television!
Laura Jallali and her husband Aladin Jallali were a difficult couple to figure out. On the surface, they seemed completely mismatched. Aladin was a young, good looking personal trainer living in Qatar. Laura was a middle aged retiree living in Florida. Aladin was reserved and dignified, while Laura was a bit on the, shall we say, crass side. Why were they together? What was in it for them? Love? Fame? Attention? Of course, the ill-matched couple’s marriage quickly imploded and they had an ugly confrontation on the reunion show, with Laura in full victim mode.
Sadly, we have come to the end of the 90-Day Fiance: The Other Way season. Like the other 90 Day jewels, this new show promised as delivered. A veritable dumpster fire of romantic dysfunction that makes you wonder why people would ever agree to participate. It is oddly fascinating to watch cast members submit themselves to the possibility of public humiliation for love, desperation, fame wh*ring and/or a green card.
Laura Jallali is one of the stars of the show, along with her decades younger love Aladin Jallali. These two seeming opposites were difficult to figure out for most of the season. Was it love? Lust for retiree Laura? Opportunities for personal trainer Aladin? Who knows. We may never have the real answers as to why the couple paired up, but the two did manage to pull off a pretty spectacular on-camera wedding that put to shame most of the other 90 Day low-budget affairs. The Qatar couple’s marital bliss did not last for long, however, and now Laura is giving an update to her social media followers.
The most recent episode of 90 Day Fiance The Other Way was the conclusion of the two-part finale special. Don’t worry there are still many surprising updates that are uncovered. We also learn where many relationships stand after the season and the Tell All.
Jenny Slatten hoped Summit will join the reunion after their devastating separation. Laura Jallali ’s son, Liam, has zero sympathy for his mother despite her failing marriage to Aladin Jallali,. Jihoon Lee reveals that his mother wanted him to marry a Korean woman. Tiffany’s trust issues are highlighted. Let’s discuss all the juicy details!
It feels like there’s a new 90 Day Fiance spin-off announced once a week at this point. The original series is still going strong. 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days has blessed us all with Darcey Silva’s craziness. Some couples from the original show have returned to TV for 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After. They even reversed the 90 Day Fiance concept with 90 Day Fiance the Other Way. And, for some reason, Chantel Everett and Pedro Jimeno had their own spin-off show.
Recently, news broke about a spin-off focused on college students. There are already a lot of these shows. Now, reality TV veteran Aubrey O’Day has another idea for a show.
