At the start of the 90 Day Fiance season, Steven Frend seemed like a nice guy who was just in over his head. For most of the episodes, Steven and Olga were a couple to root for. However, that changed with the last two episodes. Olga Koshimbetova gave birth to baby Richie. Steven was definitely overwhelmed, but this behavior was not justified. At all. He had more than one outburst at the mother of his child, who was still recovering from her C-section surgery.
He even flipped out on their way home from the hospital. During that tirade, he claimed that he grew up with family members arguing and didn’t want that for his son. How ironic. Poor Olga cried and no one could blame her. She just gave birth, she’s trying not to rupture stitches, and now she’s getting yelled at by her boyfriend. After watching the recent episodes, Steven copped to his behavior and apologized.
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.
All six couples hit major speed bumps on tonight’s 90 Day Fiance. We’re at the point in the season where it’s tough to tell who to root for. But God bless this show anyway because it’s truly made Sundays great again. And there is some juicy drama headed our way tonight.
Steven & Olga went from hopeful to straight up disaster in three days. It’s 99.9% Steven’s fault (unless tv editing it doing him dirty). After Olga and baby Richie are cleared to head home from the hospital, Steven hopes they can make a fresh start. But previews show their arguments continue, largely due to Steven’s quick temper. This is not looking good.
If we thought the youngest people on this season’s trainwreck of 90 Day Fiance were actually the most mature of the whole bunch, well, we would be dead right. Because despite early signs of stress at becoming new parents, Steven and Olga are definitely winning in the off-camera social media department. In fact, they seem to be the only cast members who got the memo that being reality TV personalities does not make you a “star” who’s entitled to argue with every Tom, Dick, and Hairball on Instagram.
But I digress! Let’s talk about the show. Last night, we find Olga being prepped for her C-section, which – THANK THE LORD – will be performed by an actual doctor. Steven is allowed in the room while the C-section is performed and, shockingly, cameras are apparently allowed to film every surgical detail of poor Olga being sliced open. Seriously – was that not the most invasive scene ever? Yikes.
Another Sunday, another crazy episode of 90 Day Fiance awaits us. But after this past week’s utterly insane behavior on social media on the part of 75% of these cast members, the actual show might seem somewhat tame. (Seriously, folks – this cast is losing its collective mind!)
Tonight’s show promises pivotal turning points for some of the couples, while others prepare for impending doom down the road. Previews reveal Steven & Olga facing the reality of becoming new parents – and the reality of that Russian hospital, which pretty much scared the bejeezus out of everyone last week. Let’s just hope the electricity and plumbing is working for Olga’s upcoming surgery.
Mother Debbie was in NYC filming 90 Day Live this weekend. The care and feeding of Colt was left to Larissa. As it turns out, things did not go well (more on that news later in the 90 Day Fiance recap). Meanwhile on last night’s 90 Day Fiance, we were presented with information about Colt’s bedroom behavior that we can never un-hear, and visions of the hellscape of Eric’s apartment that we can never un-see. So, let’s do a wellness check. My fellow viewers, are you still with us? Are you okay?
I personally also need Asuelu to blink twice if he needs help. Because this dude is surrounded by enemies, yo! This week, Kalani tells us that Asuelu is “trying to do the dad thing,” which he also demonstrates by taking baby Oliver to the park. Kalani is naturally nervous to see Asuelu interact with the baby. This is especially true he tries to push him in a swing that’s too big for him. She’s not used to sharing parenting duties – or the compromises that come with them.
It’s going to be a three-hour extravaganza of CRAZY with an all new 90 Day Fiance tonight, followed immediately by a new 90 Day Live special hosted by the fabulous Michelle Collins. And guess who’s coming along for the live show ride? One of our favorite pink-tanktopped-wonders from Before The 90 Days and Mother Colt!
Yes, it’s true: Angela and Debbie will be gracing our screens for one whole hour answering viewer questions and comparing notes about how it feels to be in a committed relationship with a younger man who thinks of you as his elder. No word on whether there will be air conditioning on set yet.
*Sigh* My deep, abiding love for Asuelu grows with every passing scene, and my heart will simply NOT be able to take it if Family Kalani comes for this man child! Before we get to the torture of watching Father Kalani rip into his would-be son in law (and Larissa rip into anything in her general vicinity) let’s review the other car crashes already in progress on last night’s 90 Day Fiance, starting with Eric and his bride to be, the insufferable PUT IT IN PROPER! Leida.
Leida, Reina, Eric, and Alessandro head to Philadelphia for a day trip to ease the pain of sleeping in the roach infested rat trap Eric rented for them. Eric keeps reminding us that Leida’s family has money and he does not – but he hopes no one will catch on? WTF is this dude thinking?!? Leida tells Reina that she’s still not certain about Eric, but it seems like her heart is set on living in America no matter what fresh hell awaits her in Baraboo.
