On tonight’s 90 Day Fiance recap, it seems like Brandon is going to stand up to his parents. We shall see how he does with that task. But first, there are rumors all over social media today about Brandon’s parents. It’s a whole lot. And I have no way to confirm or deny these rumors so they all go under the umbrella of ALLEDGEDLY. I don’t even know where to start. First of all Betty and her husband are rumored to be swingers who go on swingers cruises all the time. EW. Did not need to know that. Also they are allegedly QAnon I can totally see that.
Also the reason the bought the farm was because they are preppers. That I have no issue with. I have a touch of that myself and have shopped online for a cabins in the woods myself. The “puppy mill” is barely legal, but legal and the breed very high end German shepherds with stud fees close to a thousand dollars. He apparently owns a car dealership, which explains Brandon’s car. And she works in HR somewhere and allegedly always late to work and everyone hates her. I could see that being true. Let’s move on.
Brandon & Julia
I’m not sure why I have an hour and a half “first look” of a two hour show. But I do and I didn’t have room to record the first run of the show so the other run happens at like midnight or so. I say all that to say that things might not be in the order of the show as you saw it. Brandon goes to crash his parents dinner. Brandon just blurts out that he and Julia need to leave the farm. He wants to get an apartment. Brandon’s Dad seems drunk and starts telling him not to make a stupid decision. His parents can’t believe that Julia gave him an ultimatum. They are literally the king and queen of ultimatums. Betty wants to know if something specifically happened to make her feel this way? Are they high?
They are both drunk and red in the face. Betty starts to cry when he points out that the she is the problem. He gets a lot of pushback from both of them. Betty is a hypocrite. And delusional. And insane. Also, I wish I had cookies. I have ten tons of junk food in the house (which never happened prepandemic, but hey we are all going to die) but no cookies. Mostly because I really don’t know how to buy junk food anymore. lol. I did eat an entire full size bag of ruffles with dip over the past two days. lol. Sorry back to the drama. Brandon is offering a compromise of them staying in the same room. NO! Brandon. MOVE THE HELL OUT OF THERE! His dad says no, but Betty wants to do it. Anything to maintain control of the boy.
Negotiations With Julia
Brandon takes Julia out to have some drinks and shoot some pool. This is the first time we have seen them off the farm on an actual date! How did that happen? Julia is thrilled just to see other people. Brandon tells her that if she wants they can stay on the farm, sleep in the same room and she won’t have to take care of any of the animals. She doesn’t believe that. Neither do I. But she is willing to go with it for a short time. I’m rather surprised. She was so close to escape.
Mike & Natalie
This couple is my “Kelly Dodd” of 90 Day Fiance. I know I shouldn’t like Kelly but I really want to. And I know this couple is not a good fit at all, but I really want them to be. It’s frustrating. They need counseling. Mike seems to think is mom is leaving with the couple in a better place than they were before she arrived. Mom plants the seed that Natalie has a hidden agenda. Once mom leaves, Mike is no longer interested in planning for the wedding.
These two lovebirds decide to go for a hike. As they get in the truck, Natalie puts on some scented hand lotion. This leads Mike in talking about how she is wearing makeup to go hiking in the woods. She’s not wearing it for the bears, Mike. She’s wearing it for you, and the cameras. I think things get a little lost in translation and Natalie feels like he is making fun of her. It was more gentle teasing. Mike has no idea why she is so quiet. Natalie is a literal tree hugger. She hugs the trees. She smells the trees. It is a bit odd, but cute. This hike is motivation for maybe getting my shit together to go on a weekend get away to a cottage in the woods. Or not. It’s so much trouble.
Later these two go into the cute little shops downtown. She buys some linen spray for the closet. He retaliates by buying cut glass bottles for alcohol. They argue about wedding planning in the store.
Jovi & Yara
Yara and Jovi take a stroll through New Orleans and Yara wants to get henna on her hands. For some reason, she picks that golden moment in time to just blurt out to Jovi that she is pregnant. He doesn’t believe her. The henna lady just pretends that nothing is going on. Jovi says he is not going to believe it until he sees a test. And if she is pregnant he’s “fine with it.” Well isn’t that romantic?
When they get home they are fighting. Apparently, previously Yara has sent him a photo of a positive pregnancy test as a joke. So he doesn’t trust her. So he watches her take another test. The second test looks to be negative. Now Jovi feel vindicated in accusing her of lying. Even though the first test is right there. He’s such a dick. The next test showed she was pregnant.
Ryan & Stephanie
It’s the day after their first romantic night together. They did not have sex the previous night. These scenes gross me out. She’s like a mother with her child. If a mother expected sex four times a night with a kid. She can’t figure out why he is not interested in sex after his “ten months of celibacy.” Then suddenly we are getting to the part about Stephanie hooking up with his cousin. As if Ryan didn’t know that. Ah! The 90 minute sneak peek included and hour of commercials for Discovery Plus. Okay, I’m back now for the second showing.
Stephanie finally tells Ryan that she had sex with Harris. Does anyone think Ryan didn’t already know this? Ha! He told her that he already knew it. The entire hotel knew that she screwed Harris. Now she is trying to blame her behavior on him? Really? He forgives her, but Harris is dead to him. Stephanie sort of acted like he needed to apologize to her. WTF?
Andrew & Amira
Every time I see the quaint French city Amira lives in, I want to jump on a plane and move there. I really can’t fathom why she would leave that place. The current goss is she wants to be a model. Amira hasn’t talked to Andrew much since she got home. Andrew is too busy enjoying his resort. Amira says that she is having problems sleeping since she was detained. Oh Lord, Andrew has a new plan. He thinks she should go to Serbia for 14 days by herself to quarantine. Why can’t she quarantine in France? Why would anyone go to Serbia to get in to the US? It makes no sense.
Back in France, Amira is trying to explain to her friends what happened. She tells her friend Xavier about The Serbian Plan. At first it seems he thinks she is joking. When he realizes that she is serious he advises her not to do it. He says the same thing will happen to her in Serbia as it did in Mexico. He doesn’t want her to risk having that happen to her again. Then, he tells the cameras that Andrew doesn’t seem to be consoling Amira after her experience and just wants her to try again. Then Xavier tells her that she is in a bad relationship and Andrew doesn’t support her. He urges her not to go to Serbia. He tells the cameras that Andrew seems to be controlling Amira.
Zied & Rebecca
Rebecca’s job at the chicken shack is apparently really stressful. So she’s not sure when she can be bothered to move furniture into the apartment. That is something that should have happened long before Zied arrived. Who brings some across the globe to move in and ushers them into an apartment with no furniture and leaves the to sit in it alone all day? Rebecca’s friend Melanie is coming over. Zied must be so miserable. Why is this woman berating Zied for not doing anything all day? He can’t work. What would you like for him to do? Why is it your business? Then she says that they are basically living a few doors down from the last guy. This seems production driven. Who cares? Melanie is awful.
Tarik & Hazel
In March of 2020 the governor shut down the entire state. Only trips to the grocery store or doctor’s appointments are allowed. The crew was forced to pack up and go home. Meanwhile these two are looking online for a girlfriend. I’d think they should probably worry about their own relationship first. And this will not end well for Tarik. He can’t deal with the woman he has. Apparently, Hazel’s sister back home is bisexual too and her parents know about her and are not having it. These two have no plan for how a throuple would work. They have no parameters set and no idea what they are doing. Tarik at least has one rule. The girlfriend will never meet or be around his daughter.
