It can be hard to keep up with the cast of 90 Day Fiance. So many of them have gone on to spin-offs for the network and their social media is flooded with new ventures. Boom Bod, flat tummy tea, you name it, they’re selling it. Then there are all the fun gossip pieces on each one of them. But Larissa Dos Santos Lima takes the cake for keeping the tabloids busy and her fans talking.
We thought we saw the last of her once she and 90 Day husband Colt Johnson got divorced. But Larissa was determined to stay in the spotlight, Colt-eee be damned! She is well known for having an on-again off-again relationship with Eric Nichols. She even claimed to have a stalker. And despite being fully divorced from Colt, it was recently announced that she would be back for another season of 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After.
The cast of the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After has been revealed. This may be one of the seasons of the franchise to enjoy as the coronavirus pandemic halted production on most shows, reality or otherwise. Happily Ever After follows the lives of established couples that proved their worth on the original 90 Day Fiance.
Despite the name, that doesn’t mean we always get a happy ending. Take Larissa dos Santos Lima and Colt Johnson. Their relationship imploded on last season of Happily Ever After. But for some inexplicable reason, they are back for another round. Luckily, viewers may get a bit of good old,-fashioned happy endings from the rest of the crew.
The 90 Day Finance franchise has no shortage of hot mess couples. Even with all of the hot messes competing for stardom on the current seasons, Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima from Season 6 rank high on the list of the greatest. The couple started out with Col-tee bringing his Brazilian bombshell home to live with his mother and forcing her to eat Mama Debbie‘s beef stew. Col-tee then proposed at dinner on top of a Vegas skyscraper despite knowing Larissa was deathly afraid of heights. Things quickly spiraled from there. By the end of the season, Larissa had been arrested for domestic violence multiple times, they were on the verge of divorce, and the Queen was facing deportation.
That’s why it is a little surprising to see that they are coming back for Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?. Sure, they are entertaining, but we already saw one Happily Ever After? season showing their total dissolution as a couple. I know this is 90 Day Fiance, which sometimes resembles the Twilight Zone, but isn’t the whole point of the Happily Ever After? franchise to show what happens to our favorite couples once they are married? If they wanted to film people separately they could just call it “Stupid People Dating” or something along those lines.
When Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima split up, it was vicious and dramatic. 90 Day Fiance fans took sides. Personal opinions aside, it was hard to decipher exactly what happened and who was in the wrong. It was simply an issue of Colt’s word versus his ex-wife’s.
Both parties moved on with other relationships. Larissa is on-again with boyfriend Eric Nichols while Colt dated another Brazilian native, Jess Caroline. Colt and Jess quietly went their separate ways last year. But some recent accusations that Jess is making against Colt could also shed light on what happened between him and Larissa, assuming the allegations turn out to be true.
Larissa Dos Santos Lima succeeded in extending her fifteen minutes of fame because of a legion of fans and followers. After appearing on 90 Day Fiance and the spinoff 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, her vivacious personality and love life piqued the interest of fans who watched her squabbles and unhappiness with ex-husband Colt Johnson.
Larissa flaunted Eric Nichols as her new boyfriend at the season reunion. The two dated for eight months before she dumped him on social media. Eric got even by having dinner with Larissa’s ex-husband and his mother Debbie Johnson. It was a cringe-worthy publicity stunt. In November, the two reconciled but decided to remain friends. Now, Larissa has shocked fans with her latest Instagram post.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days is off and running for another season of global love seeking. From an Angela Deem and Michaal Ilesanmi-like romance between Lisa and much younger Nigerian rapper Usman to the ubiquitous return of Darcey Silva, TLC is delivering train wreck relationship realness once again. And we love it.
On the surface, Geoffrey Paschel would seem to be an exception to the so outrageous, you can’t look away 90 Day Fiance storylines. Geoffrey has come across initially as a likeable single father who tragically lost one of his children. Varya, his love interest, is a beautiful Russian with a successful career in radio. Sounds great so far, huh? Of course, this being TLC, there is apparently more to Geoffrey’s story than appears on the surface. Way more.
Larissa Dos Santos Lima tops the list of charismatic 90 Day Fiance alums. She appeared on season 6 of the hit reality show with now ex-husband Colt Johnson, and his mother Debbie Johnson. After that season, Larissa and Colt were cast for spinoff 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After.
Interest in Larissa grew as she amassed a huge social media following. So despite being done with reality TV, fans can follow Larissa on tabloid news and social media. But being a charismatic woman in the public eye has proved, unfortunately, alarming at times.
90 Day Fiance episodes should be shown in premarital counseling sessions–as examples of what not to do when getting married. Although some couples go on to have happy marriages, many others do not. Case in point–Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima. Anyone could have seen the couple were ill-suited for each other, with different temperaments, personalities–and views of what role mother-in-law Debbie Johnson would play in their marriage.
The tempestuous lovebirds weathered Larissa’s domestic violence arrests, jealousy and Colt’s online flirting. Inevitably, the couple called it quits. After their split, Colt and Larissa flaunted new relationships and tried to extend their 15 minutes of fame. Both seemed to enjoy taking post-split digs at each other, but they eventually came to an amicable divorce. And what does one do after a divorce? If you are Colt Johnson, you get rid of the evidence.
