When 90 Day Fiance first introduced Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha to us, they seemed like the average couple for this show. An attractive younger woman using a lonely, middle-aged man for a green card. We would have been so lucky had the manipulation ended there. We saw some tantrums, but given the state of Eric’s apartment, it was understandable when Leida demanded a better living space and some new furniture. Eric surely promised her many things that he was unable to deliver on.
Where we the public parted ways with our overdrawn sympathy for Leida was when she started meddling with Eric and his daughters. As Leida’s appalling behavior and demands escalated, so did the viewer backlash against her. The result was a lot of dirt coming out on social media about Leida. There were inexcusable death threats made against her and her son Allessandro. Finally, Eric and Leida “quit the show.” So before we part ways with this unappealing couple on the season finale, here’s a quick roundup of all their off-screen drama.
Leida Margaretha’s polarizing actions on 90 Day Fiance have real-life consequences. Clothing store Surelymine dropped Leida from an endorsement deal. Apparently, viewers flooded the company with complaints. They even questioned the decision to use Leida as a spokesperson.
Who can blame them? There has been plenty of poor behavior this season. Primarily, Leida’s appalling treatment of her future step-daughter Tasha Rosenbrook. Her diva antics escalated throughout the season. Eventually, the aggressive behavior peaked when Leida gave Eric Rosenbrook an ultimatum. As a result, Eric threw Tasha out of his apartment.
Next week is the finale of 90 Day Fiance. So we’re nearly at the end of the line. To all of you who have stuck with this 40-car pileup until the last vehicle careens over the cliff, I offer you a virtual appreciation ring atop of a windmill. Congrats to us! Last night was packed full of pre-holiday treats. So, let’s get to it, starting with The Horror In Baraboo.
Since kicking Tasha Rosenbrook out, Eric Rosenbrook and Leida Margaretha have been feeling pretty pleased with themselves. But Eric thinks things can be salvaged with one conversation. He meets all three of his daughters at a local diner to talk
about what a sh*tbag father he is. Eric’s youngest daughter is scarred from watching the fight between Leida and Tasha. Of course, Tasha is still very upset about being tossed out like trash. “What’s done is done,” barks Eric, claiming he had “no control over how it played out.” Um…WHAT?
The situation for some of the couples on 90 Day Fiance seems so dire, we have to wonder what will becomes of them once the cameras stop rolling and the Instagram followers fade away. But tonight, a few of them try to turn their train
Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima have been at odds nearly every minute since Larissa landed in the un-airconditioned hell of Colt’s world. Mother Debbie isn’t making life easier for the couple, so Larissa decides to confront the issue head on tonight. Will these two broads be able to live in Sister Wife harmony with Coltee from this day forward?
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.
Brace yourselves. I am about to share what will truly be some stunning and surprising news. That’s right, the nightmare roller coaster that is Coltee Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s relationship has gone for another vomit inducing loop.
Coltee and Larissa secretly wed in June, but the honeymoon has been less than pleasant. Gee, what a surprise. The couple has made headlines for their off-camera antics. This includes allegations of domestic violence and arrests. Can’t these two lovebirds just fly far, far away?
Leida Margaretha is calling it quits. Not on her relationship with Eric Rosenbrook though. Earlier this week, Leida revealed that she and Eric will not be returning for another season of 90 Day Fiance.
The meaning of her declaration is very unclear because fans of the franchise know that the premise of the show requires that a couple finishes after one season. The “favorite” couples are sometimes asked back for 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After to finish out their stories post-wedding.
