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?
On December 12th, Ashley posted on her Instagram that she is still dealing with ongoing health issues. She thanked fans for their product endorsements and Cameo requests. But admitted that she couldn’t currently follow through on the orders. Ashley revealed that an unnamed illness has landed her in the hospital again. Prayers and patience were politely requested.
It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beadorfollowed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
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.
90 Day Fiance stars Ashley MartsonandJay Smithhave been dealing with continuous hurdles. Ashley recovered from a serious medical issue. On top of that, she and Jay had some fights about lack of communication and trust in their relationship. The couple made up on this week’s episode with a very sweet scene that made us all root for them and hope to see this couple make it to the altar.
Unfortunately, things quickly went south again. Soon after, viewers saw Ashley and Jay receive racist and vile messages. Over a hundred comments were posted on their public wedding website. Almost all of those hundred comments contained the N-word.
