Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto‘s relationship seemed so promising in the beginning. As the first same-sex couple on 90 Day Fiance Before the 90 Days they seemed genuinely infatuated with each other and looked so cute together to boot. Unfortunately, when Steph traveled to Australia to meet Erika in person, things quickly unraveled. Steph was extremely jealous but did not give Erika any affection at the same time. They quickly broke up, with Erika getting the better edit and Steph appearing to be uptight and controlling.
Erika has come off as authentic and comfortable with herself all along. In spite of her beer-bonging, friend-shagging ways, she is proud of being a free spirit and seems very upfront about who she is. Erika definitely stands out with her bright, colorful appearance, but also conveys a sense of calm maturity that contrasts with Steph‘s frenzied insecurity. It is not surprising to see that Erika has found a new partner, although her new love may surprise fans.
It’s great to be a fan of the 90 Day Fiance franchise, because there are so many spin-offs now that fans can watch the finale of one show then tune in to a new season the next night. That’s exactly what was experienced this week. 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days aired it’s reunion on Sunday night then season 2 of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way premiered on Monday.
We can watch the carnage of couples that have fallen out by the end of filming, to meeting new pairs that give us all the feels of hope and promise in a new love. One couple from The Other Way really stood out. They seem to have a very uplifting and respectful love for each other despite the cultural and age difference. They are Armando Rubio and Kenneth Niedermeier, also the first male same sex couple of the 90 Day Fiance franchise.
Watching Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto at the reunion clearly showed two people on totally different wavelengths. This is one 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days couple that does not have to deal with a language barrier yet couldn’t be having more difficulties with communication.
They spoke over each other. Stephanie resorted to deflection. Erika was frustrated that she wasn’t able to present her side of the story. There was so much hurt between them that they couldn’t even look at each other by the end of it. But they weren’t finished yet. Since the Tell-All aired, Erika and Stephanie have been making public statements regarding their relationship.
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days is the conclusion of the two-part finale special. Although it’s not as action packed as Part 1, there are still many surprising updates that are uncovered. Host Shaun Robinson dives back in to discuss more of the biggest moments with the couples and updates on where their relationships stand now.

This season of 90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days was one hot mess. And I mean that in the most complimentary of ways. After all, isn’t that why we watch? Part of the reason this season was so messy was the fact that NONE of the couples got along. Sometimes it was hard to believe they were in love, much less in like with each other.
One such couple that had problem after problem was Erika Owens and Stephanie Matto. Erika is a colorful (literally) Aussie and Stephanie is her
uptight girlfriend from Yonkers, New York. Further complicating matters is that neither of them were officially out as bisexual to their parents. It seemed like Stephanie didn’t want to admit anything to her conservative mother either way. Coupled with ongoing trust issues, they did nothing but fight during Stephanie’s visit to Australia. But one noticeable story line was Stephanie not wanting to touch or be affectionate with Erika. Stephanie later claimed it was because of medication but some aren’t buying it.
Whew, last night’s quarantine edition of the 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days tell all was everything I needed and more. I have been waiting patiently for an update and some background details. The entire cast video chatted from their homes, with the exception of Geoffrey Paschel and Varya Malina, who were not in attendance. Nonetheless, there were plenty of surprises to make up for their absence. Geoffrey wasn’t invited to the reunion, due to allegations of physical abuse by an ex-girlfriend. Too bad, I was hoping to see him get flame broiled harder than a burger king whopper.
This first installment of the reunion was filled with drama with a capital D! I wasn’t sure how this virtual tell all would pan out, but it definitely seemed to fuel the flames. People were more comfortable in their homes to scream and point figures. Also, certain guests had no one to limit their alcohol intake. This was a modern day three ring circus, and I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let’s get straight into the recap!
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days was interesting. The desperation is real! You have to have just the right amount of delusion optimism to deal with some of these circumstances. I can’t understand how some of these people haven’t just walked away from these relationships. A green card or not being alone can’t be worth dealing with some of these clingy and overbearing people.
Stephanie Matto reveals a secret. Geoffrey Paschel follows his heart. Darcey Silva looks ahead to the future. David and Lana spend their last bit of time together. Ed Brown hopes for a second chance. Lisa Hamme and Usman Umar must say goodbye. Let’s get straight into the recap!
Last night’s episode of 90 Day Fiance Before The 90 Days was full of disappointment and goodbyes for many. I’m still confused why these people are clinging to these relationships so desperately. There is clearly a multitude of issues that are just being ignored. Others have decided to run while they had the chance. Either way I am still thoroughly entertained!
David tries to get closer to Lana. Avery Warner says goodbye to Ash Naeck. Geoffrey Paschel finds himself caught in the middle of a sticky situation. Stephanie Matto reunites with her mom. Drama ensues when Lisa Hamme meets with Usman Umar‘s elders. Let’s get straight into the recap!
