I’m trying to wake up and get on this 90 Day Fiance recap. I am full blown narcoleptic lately all I want to do is sleep! At least today was the first day that the days start getting longer. I need more sunshine! Argh. I just realized that The Bachelorette wasn’t taping. 🙁 I will miss the first 30 minutes.
Brandon & Julia
Anyway, we start with the mama’s boy, Brandon and his fiance, Julia. Julia has been dealt a bad hand with Brandon’s smothering mother. She is thrilled to be in the US. Brandon’s mom has their whole day planned minute by minute. Julia suggests they just stay in the hotel room. It’s day two and she is already over the parents. Julia tells Brandon to either confront his mother or she will go home.
Betty is such a clueless mother. Who would intrude on their son’s relationship like this? Julia is shocked by all the “fat people” running. She’s in DC. She would really freak out if she came to the south! She is loving DC and loves taking selfies. Brandon half-heartedly talks to his mother about the sleeping situation at the house. He has no backbone. Then suddenly, Brandon tells the parents that he has other plans with Julia and they want time alone. Betty is not happy. He has dinner reservations with Julia. Over dinner he tells her that his conversation with his mother was not productive. Julia says if she doesn’t change her rules, they need to move out. And, Julia is shocked that Brandon doesn’t have money to move out.
Jovi & Yara
Today, Jovi is taking Yara to the bayou to meet his mom. Yara doesn’t seem to know what to expect. She seems to overdress for everything. Jovi is nervous. Suddenly, Yara finds out that Jovi is going to have to leave for work offshore before she is even settled in. At least Yara likes his mom’s cooking. Jovi’s mom seems super nice. Yara and Jovi are already arguing over when and where to get married. Yara on the other hand is kind of a bitch.
Jovi’s mom is the best. Sadly, Yara is the worst. The wine does seem to loosen her up a bit. Then, she told Jovi that his mother’s food was tasteless. Who says that to her lover? I don’t care if she fed her dogfood. She needs to zip her lip. Most of us would kill to eat real cajun food in the bayou! I guarantee you that her cajun cooking did not taste like nothing. Then she trashed his mother’s town. The big issue is that Yara is refusing to have a wedding in Louisiana. What does Jovi see in this one? Blond haired bitches are a dime a dozen. He seems pretty normal.
Andrew & Amira
I think this is our first look at these two and they are weird. Andrew runs a daycare where he dresses up in costumes to read to the children. He runs the center with his mother inside her house. He admits he has no friends. This show is turning into I Love A Mama’s Boy. Oh wow, Amira is from France. Her hometown Saumur is adorable. Why would she ever leave? From Google, “Saumur is a town in western France. Overlooking the Loire river, the Château de Saumur is a medieval castle with a museum displaying archaeological finds, ceramics and tapestries. The National Riding School, home to the Cadre Noir display team, is known for its equestrian shows.” I want to go there!
Amira’s hobby is apparently buying makeup. He should probably not take Amira to Ulta. I don’t even wear makeup much and I want to buy all the things there! Oh and she is half Egyptian. I want to marry her! But, I’d want it to be 90 Day the other way! Andrew is a lunatic. Amira flew to Vegas to meet Andrew. He proposed in Vegas. She seems very happy with him. They had to wait a year for the visa. But when she got her visa the US borders were closed due to Covid. So they are going to go to Mexico and quarantine and then enter the US. I love this storyline even if Andrew is a bit eccentric. I love Saumur! And, I hope she has to stay there longer! Amira is scared to death to fly but she is going to risk it all for love.
90 Day Fiance Recap Is Getting Long!
Andrew meets with his sister Connie. She’s hurt that he is going to miss her baby shower to quarantine in Mexico with Amira. Baby showers are for women anyway. And lots of women hate baby showers. Also, who has a baby shower during a pandemic? Connie thinks Amira is superficial? Andrew says that Amira suddenly doesn’t want to have kids and that is a huge issue. Andrew is really shifty-eyed. Is that some sort of a condition? Amira meets with her dad one last time before leaving for Mexico City. He thinks she should wait until after Covid.
Amira meets with her dad. He is not down with the whole sneaking into the country via Mexico plan. He wants he to wait until after Covid. But, she tells her dad that he gave her an ultimatum. She feels like she has not choice. Her father is very worried. Her father can’t stand Andrew. He says Andrew makes her sad all the time. I love her dad. I think he is the Egyptian half.
Tarik & Hazel
Hazel is going to break Tarik’s heart. It is extremely obvious that Hazel wants a girlfriend, not a husband. Tarik wants to buy a powder blue suit because that is Hazel’s favorite color. His sister thinks that is a ridiculous plan. It’s way too 70s. Tarik and his brother are estranged because his brother Dean, already knows that Hazel is a user. We figured that out in the first episode. Then, Dean moved to the Philippines to be with a girl. #hypocrite Tarik has a daughter with autism. This situation only gets worse.
Tarik goes to the airport to meet Hazel, and I already hate this couple. He sobs like a baby when she shows up. Yet, she has no emotion. The powder blue suit was oddly a hit with Hazel. She has left her son in the Philippines. That’s always a bad look. Wait! He has been with Hazel for two and a half years. Hazel has culture shock. She is hoping to bring her son to the US. Tarik’s house is messy but bigger than anything Hazel is used to. She’s never seen a dishwasher. Tarik things the house is clean. And it it not. She is a bit anxious about the size of the house. I get that.
Mike & Natalie
Mike and Natalie are in Seattle stay at a hotel I stayed in for two weeks once. I forget the name of it but it is the only hotel in Seattle with water views. Rumor has it that The Beatles stayed there once and fished from their balcony. Just seeing those hilly streets in Seattle reminds me that I am way to old to ever go back there. The hills were murder. Actually, this doesn’t look like the hotel I stayed it. This looks closer to the pier. I hate that Natalie is making Mike throw Uncle Beau out of the house. Natalie says that she is concerned about living in the country. She is also shocked by the portion size at dinner.
Natalie is concerned that she doesn’t have an engagement ring. And she also hates Mike’s country house. She says it reminds her of a horror movie. How did she move across the globe without knowing anything about where Mike lives? She is going to be afraid out there. She’s a city girl moving to a town with 7,000 people. He really does live in the middle of nowhere. She’s also not fond of the cat. She’s a dog person. He should get her a dog. That would help. Plus, she is freezing. She hates it all.
Next time we meet Ryan and Stephanie. And it appears she is batshit crazy. Julia freaks about about life on the farm. Zied continues to try for his visa. Natalie is miserable in the middle of nowhere. Things go south in Mexico. Jovi and Yara fight over furniture.
