“90 Day Fiancé: Happy Forever?”: Bad News Strikes Hard (RECAP) | Entertainment
It’s a tough week for the 90 Day Fiancé: Happy Forever? couples, one that leaves a good number on unstable ground.
Brandon and Julia’s interview with immigration does not go as planned, while Angela and Michael continue to disagree on its operations. Plus, Andrei will probably never get along with Elizabeth’s family. But who plans her life without her husband (just in case)? Read on to find out all the drama that unfolded in Season 6’s third episode.
Elizabeth and Andrei
As you will recall, Elizabeth’s family reunion about her husband Andrei joining the family business didn’t go well – and he’s unlikely to sit down with her brother. Charlie either. (Andrei hasn’t forgotten Charlie’s toast which he says ruined their second wedding day, especially since the other man didn’t apologize.)
It goes pretty much as planned, although we think it could have been worse since they met at a brewery of all places. Charlie admits to abusing vodka at the wedding and expressing his feelings at the wrong time, but he only feels bad that he disrespected Elizabeth, not Andrei. As for working together in the family business, Andrei thinks he can just work with Chuck, while Charlie says his dad told him to show his brother-in-law the ropes. The only thing they can agree on is that they are both here to make money. The hatchet is not exactly buried.
Jovi and Yara
Jovi and Yara are getting used to being the parents of a four-year-old baby, which means picking the right diapers and buying fruit and veg (“I have lemonade,” he says, “that’s a like a fruit ”). Another problem: he feels like her opinion needs to be taken into account, when she thinks he’s going to do stupid things. Her mother, Gwen, stops to help (and insists their daughter must be in a blanket, not a blanket), and Yara doesn’t want her telling her what to do.
This could become a problem when Jovi has to go to work for two months in Guyana and Yara cannot return home to see her family in Ukraine as planned due to COVID and not having the proper documents. Gwen may be the only help Yara will have.
Angela and Michael
The day before Angela’s weight loss surgery, her good friend JoJo joins her at the hotel. She will be there to support her after the operation and will be another person telling her to quit smoking. (Angela doesn’t; she even smokes a cigarette the morning of the procedure.)
What JoJo won’t do is have a conversation with Michael about the breast reduction surgery Angela will be having for her friend as well. Angela’s husband is not happy, as she expected, but she knows that the risk of this second operation is secondary to the size of her breasts. She’s worried about what this will mean for their relationship and she’s not the only one.
Michael is worried that other men are noticing Angela’s new body after the operation after a conversation with his brother Yekini. If Michael can’t trust his wife, they shouldn’t be married, Yekini says.
On the way to her date, Angela calls her a psychic, who allays her fears with a reading – and also tells her not to smoke. But she only feels better for so long; when she tries to join her family, no one answers. And with the risks she faces with the surgeries, she’s upset that she can’t talk to them before she sinks.
Kalani and Asuelu
Kalani’s sister, Kolini, arrives and sees the “new” Asuelu. He tries to get along with his wife’s family and put the past (like his own and Kolini’s explosive confrontation) behind him. But Kolini worries he looks a bit fake, and she’s not the only one. Kalani shares her concerns with her sister, but she tries to give her husband the benefit of the doubt.
It gets worse when Kolini finds out that they are planning to buy a house. Of course, it might help if they have their own accommodation – it’s uncomfortable living with Kalani’s family – but she suggests they consider six-month leases. What if they don’t stay together? Asuelu doesn’t even want to hear about the possibility of a divorce. Kalani tells him that she’s good at moving out and having her own space if he really has changed, but they won’t work if they don’t.
Brandon and Julia
Brandon and Julia prepare for what they hope will be the last step in getting her green card: an interview. (She also didn’t quite give up on her dream of living in Las Vegas; she really hates the farm.) What he didn’t tell her was that they’re supposed to have some paperwork proving she lives with him, like her name on a bill, but they don’t. Things get tough when she wonders if he will come to Russia with her if she doesn’t get her green card and he hesitates to make the gesture.
After the interview, they reveal that his candidacy was not approved. This has not been denied either. There is a new document they might need, although the immigration officer doesn’t even know what it is yet. They will hear in two weeks whether their application has been approved or if they need to present more evidence.
Tiffany and Ronald
After cancel tickets for her and her children to go see Ronald in South Africa, Tiffany used the money for a deposit on their own house so they could leave her mother’s house. She’s tired of prioritizing it and focusing on her own happiness.
And if you ask her mom, Maggie, Tiffany won’t find that with her husband. It’s okay, she said to her daughter. Sometimes people are not made for each other. Tiffany refuses to give up for now, but having her own place gives her a back-up plan. Will she need it?
