One of my favorite 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couples has been Paul Staehle and Karine Staehle. Although their romance was turbulent and drama filled, there was something about the couple that made me root for them. Maybe it was just nice to see that two odd ducks were able to find each other in a world filled with less odd ducks. Fighting and making up via Google Translate, of course!
Paul and Karine faced many challenges to their relationship and eventual marriage. Paul’s criminal record. Financial problems. Immigration issues. Language barriers. And a heartbreaking miscarriage televised last season. Now, the couple has shared some good news-they have announced the birth of their first child.
The latest season of 90 Day Fiance ended a few months ago and I will admit I have been missing the over the top drama delivered by the show’s cast. Just when you think that nothing can shock you, 90 Day always manages to surprise/amaze/offend/appall you. And leave you wondering, what are these people thinking? And that, in a nutshell, is why we watch reality television-because these folks often don’t think at all before acting!
The 90 Day Fiance franchise delivers real drama due to the ticking time bomb of an expiring visa. Those subsequent marriages also create plenty of fodder for spin-offs and divorce and immigration lawyers. So I, for one, cannot wait for the return of Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?later this month.
Happily Ever After is a spin-off from 90 Day Fiance that provides an update for some of those visa-challenged couples. Who’s still married, pregnant or divorced? Which couples from 90 Day Fiance will be called up to the spinoff?
Can you recall a time when perfectly ordinary and relatable people were cast on 90 Day Fiance? After all the on and offscreen volatility of Season 6, it’s nice to have some uplifting news for a change.
Remember Mike Eloshway and Aziza Eloshway from the first season? They recently welcomed their first child together. Aziza delivered daughter Olivia Joan on January 14th.
Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.
In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.
Even though they’ve publicly feuded, many reality TV stars gathered with family for Christmas. Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga celebrated Christmas Eve together. But what kind of cookies did they eat? Did Melissa bring some sprinkle cookies? Or did Teresa insist on eating pignoli cookies? Hopefully, they didn’t argue about desserts this year.
Pregnant 90 Day Fiance alumPaola Mayfield has lots to be thankful for these days. Even so, I am betting that comments from angry Internet trolls are not on that list. Paola and her husband, Russ Mayfield, have a baby boy on the way. They have been sharing lots of photos on social media to document her pregnancy.
Recently, Paola posted a photo to Instagram. She was baring her baby bump in a bikini and sporting new platinum blond tresses. And then the Internet lost its mind! Did the pregnant reality TV alum use chemicals to bleach her hair?
