Is 90 Day Fiance trying to shock us? Because we have been dragged through such torture this season, we are now officially un-shockable! It truly feels like the behind the scenes antics, tantrum-like protestations, and spoiler revelations of cast members combined with a pretty dark season of terrible on-screen behavior have combined to create a general sense of angst among viewers.
Where are the Angelas and Michaels from 90 Day Fiance of yesteryear to talk about doing “the BJ for real?” We need them! Yo, TLC: BRING. BACK. THE. COMEDY. At least we got to see Leida Margaretha dragged by Eric Rosenbrook’s ex-wife, Tania, who’s finally had enough of Leida’s horrific behavior toward her daughters. Although Tania could have gone WAY harder on Leida, we’ll take what we can get. And this week also brought us a tiny little scooter used as a getaway vehicle after a verbal altercation, so there’s hope yet.
Soon, we’ll be getting a holiday break from the craziness of 90 Day Fiance. So tonight’s episode plans to pack in as much drama as humanly possible. And with this season’s cast, that’s an easy task! Get ready for two hours of our favorite trainwrecks flying their freak flags all over national TV. It is all followed by a 90 Day Live special on TLC hosted by Michelle Collins. Ahhh…it just puts you right in the holiday spirit, no?
As he threatened last week, Steven Frend attempts to take baby Richie to the U.S. with him, despite Olga Koshimbetova not being able to come along. Erm…methinks that’s called “baby snatching,” and it’s not cool, bro. Here’s hoping the legal system thwarts his efforts. Or that Olga has a very scary friend who can come stand in front of the plane.
Just when 90 Day Fiance stars Ashley Martson and Jay Smith overcome one hurdle and put all the negativity behind them, they are faced with another act of hostility.
On last week’s episode, Jay was the victim of racist trolling. Now, someone with a lot of time on their hands, and a seemingly deep-rooted vendetta against Ashley and Jay, violated their privacy by posting personal photos of the couple. This person created a new Instagram account and leaked what appear to be Ashley and Jay’s wedding pictures.
Last night, we witnessed a new low, even for 90 Day Fiance. And it came to us in the form of Leida, who traveled all the way to Wisconsin from Indonesia just so Twitter could unify in their unbridled hatred of her. Yup, we truly have a common enemy now! And she may have an equal counterpart in her sweaty fiance, Eric. They are officially THE WORST.
Before we get to the big drama of that duo – and the insanity going on in Coltee’s house of horrors – let’s check in with our less stabby couples. In Utah, Kolini leaves and takes her giant bag of negative bullsh*t with her. Kalani talks to Asuelu about their future. Do they have one? She thinks Asuelu needs to communicate better, but Asuelu feels like he’s constantly under attack. He’s not wrong about that. In tears, he tells Kalani that he wants to be close to her, but feels rejected.
You know, each week we think we’ve seen the worst that these 90 Day Fiance couples can offer – but it’s not so! Because tonight, we’re about to be treated to a toddler-like meltdown, the likes of which only Leida and her entitled, PUT-IT-IN-PROPER arse can give us. Brace thyselves!
After Eric rejects Leida’s dreams of sleeping on a real mattress and sitting upon a real couch, she throws a fit in the parking lot. Cameras pick up right where we left off last week. Leida freaks out about Eric’s child support payments. She threatens not to marry him if he doesn’t come up with enough money to fund her lifestyle.
There is so much toxic waste to sift through on this week’s 90 Day Fiance. We need to jump right into the garbage pile and start sorting. Dang! Have you ever seen such dysfunction laid bare for all the world to see? (That is, until Love After Lockup returns this Friday – set your DVRs for WEtv 8 CST/9 EST!). The only word for it is lunacy.
We can’t truly begin to snark on the lesser crazies before addressing the most disturbing situation of last night’s show. This involved a TRULY SCARY Steven berating the mother of his child while she attempted to breastfeed their newborn baby. Seriously, Steven needs to be voted off the island – like right now. THE TRIBE HAS SPOKEN.
The drama on tonight’s 90 Day Fiance looks intense, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Well – except in the case of Steven and Olga, whose situation is going from bad to Please someone save Olga and baby Richie from this toxic nightmare right this minute!!!
The cringe-worthy arguments and gaslighting continue in Russia, while back in the U.S., the other couples start rethinking plans for their wedding days. The reality of marriage is right around the corner for all of them, but it’s looking more and more like a few of them might not make it to the altar.
Steven, you had ONE job to do. You were supposed to be the sweet, earnest guy that we cheered for. I was rooting for you! We were ALL rooting for you! I have never in my life seen a man talk to the mother of his child this way! (Okay, Tyra Banks rant ended.) But seriously, I was willing to give Steven a pass on his outburst last week. It seemed to stem from his lack of sleep and frustration about navigating a foreign hospital system. But his continued despicable behavior on this week’s 90 Day Fiance episode has done nothing to redeem him. Poor Olga! Poor baby Richie!
After the hospital discharges Olga, Steven continues to rail against her for telling him to wash his hands, quiet down, and not touch a sleeping baby. Steven’s all, “NO ONE TELLS ME WHAT TO DO!!!” Could this by why this kid has been kicked out of his mom’s house for a few years? Olga, who is still recovering from C-section surgery, is too exhausted to fight with Steven. She, along with the rest of humanity, just need him to STFU. Mmmkaythaaaaaaaanks.
