For the most part, every Love After Lockup couple ends the season broken up and/or with one person back in prison. Brittany Santiago and her husband Marcelino Santiago are not one of those couples. Sure, they fight just like anyone else in a relationship, but their lives have truly changed in the past year.
Brittany got out of prison. Brittany and Marcelino got married. The duo welcomed a baby girl named Zoila. Brittany’s son from a previous relationship, Giovanni, is a big part of their lives as well. And, unlike, a majority of the other cast members on this show, Brittany is not back in prison. She is not back to her old ways. Both Brittany and Marcelino are focused on moving forward. Still, there’s plenty of drama in their lives, which is why they’re a part of the Love After Lockup spin-off series Life After Lockup. The Santiagos spoke with Reality Tea about the new show and their lives since filming wrapped.
Well, that was quick. Apollo Nida, ex-husband of former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, was released from prison in early June. He had been serving time after being arrested for identity theft, bank fraud, and other charges. While his biggest crime might have been getting married to Phaedra in the first place, he does share two beautiful children with her. The couple began divorce proceedings in 2014. Phaedra has since moved on with Tone
Loc Kapone and Apollo is currently engaged. Also, has Phaedra ever dated anyone named Bob or does she have a thing about unusual first names?
Apollo was originally supposed to “go asunder” for 8 whole years, but had his pokey term reduced by one year. At the beginning of June, Apollo was back on the streets with
next ex-wife fiance, Sherien Almufti. Apparently, their love of being reunited was not strong enough to conquer Apollo’s rebel spirit. Either that or he missed his meals being served on a cafeteria tray.
Some of our favorite couples from Love After Lockup are back for this all-new series, and it looks so good. Life After Lockup follows five couples from the original series. Scott Davey and Lizzie Kommes are not together so it will be interesting to see what happens with them. Lamar Jackson and America’s favorite Mormon wife Andrea Edwards appear to be solid.
Brittany Santiago and Marcelino Santiago have a new baby, but people from her past could case a rift between them. Clint Brady is more determined than ever to build a solid marriage with Tracie Wagaman, but we’ll see. Finally, the love triangle of the century is back for more drama. Michael Simmons, Sarah Simmons, and Megan J are at a crossroads now that the truth about the marriage and baby are out. I wonder what relationships will be standing by season’s end
The couples from Love After Lockup are back for an all-new show: Life After Lockup! Usually, Love After Lockup has a new cast every season (with the exception of Scott Davey and Lizzie Kommes). Life After Lockup is exactly what it sounds like: following the lives of the couples after the original series.
Season 1 couple Andrea Edwards and Lamar Jackson are still going strong and will be a part of the new show. For some reason, the love triangle between Michael Simmons, Sarah Simmons, and Megan J is still going very strong. Why are these women interested in him after the antics that he pulled last season? Was this new show filmed before that one aired? This just doesn’t make any sense. Then again, two women fighting over Michael in any circumstance just doesn’t make the most sense.
Lizzie and Scott are back, again not making sense, since Season 2 ended with them living very separate lives. Is she back to steal the change from his couch cushions? Brittany Santiago and her husband Marcelino Santiago are back, this time with their baby daughter. And for some reason, Clint Brady is still trying to make things work with Tracie Wagaman. She stole relapsed, stole from him, and ghosted him. That’s not a great start to a marriage.
After a wildly entertaining Season 2 of Love After Lockup, there’s a spin-off show. Instead of jumping right into a Season 3 with a whole cast of new couples, viewers can follow their favorites’ journeys by Watching Life After Lockup.
Life After Lockup will feature five couples that we all know
and love. Brittany Santiago and Marcelino Santiago are back with a new baby girl. Lizzie Kommes and b will grace our TVs again, even though they weren’t even together during the Season 2 finale. Clint Brady and Tracie Wagaman are still trying to make their marriage work, even though she relapsed and abandoned him immediately after their wedding. Season 1 couple Andrea and Lamar will be on the season. And, of course, there’s love triangle that will never end: Michael Simmons, Sarah Simons, and Megan J. They will also share their lives on Life After Lockup. This season is bound to be full of drama with that cast. Reality Tea even obtained an exclusive clip from the premiere episode.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out this links from some of our favorite sites in the May 20, 2019 edition of Monday Morning Tea.
This week on Love After Lockup felt like a bridge episode to the final showdown between side pieces and wives, plus a little foreshadowing of breakups to come. Thanks goodness WeTV has added an extra ten episodes after the finale to continue
traumatizing their camera crew filming some of these train wrecks – plus, they’re adding a few new couples to the mix later this Spring!
But for now, we just need to catch up with missing Goddesses and confusing tooth situations. Let’s start with the teeth. Pro: Scott is still wearing his temporary dentures, which GIVES ME LIFE. Con: These new teeth ain’t gonna get him laid.
What can we say about a show that has it all, like Love After Lockup? I mean, we have Dr. Phil wisdom spouting forth from the mouth of Clint. We have video footage of Tracie in prison shackles, happily showing off her new
strain of Hepatitis B prison tattoo. We have Scott spending another $30k on his ex-con, then popping in some Party City vampire teeth to clean up his look. And everyone is suddenly pregnant. Basically, this is trash TV at its absolute finest. And if you aren’t watching this show yet, I have just one question: WHY NOT? Please, I beg you…start living your best life and tune in with us.
There is so much to unpack this week, I almost don’t know where to start. Okay, I do: It’s in Scott’s mouth hole, which I have crawled ALL UP INTO on freeze frame photos on my laptop to dissect exactly WTAF is going on in there. Yes, this is what I’m spending my time on after Friday night’s shocking dentures reveal. We need answers, people. You’re welcome. #Journalism
