I’m dying to get on this 90 Day Fiance recap now since I saw the last 15 seconds a few minutes ago as I tape Sister Wives afterward. I’d forgotten that I am going to be delayed with my Below Deck Recap tonight, so I am going to have a couple of hours to get through this. All of the sudden, this site is back to being super busy again. So that is a good thing. 🙂
Natalie & Mike
We start out with Natalie and Mike finally being in a good place! YAY! Uncle Beau is turning 50 and they are having a surprise birthday party for him. Parties usually mean alcohol and that doesn’t normally work out well for these two so….fingers crossed? Their neighbor, Tamara shows up with the cake and Beau and the party begins. Despite the shots, things go well. Corona Virus is there so they have delayed their wedding for a few weeks. So they go fishing. Natalie is trying to get into it but it’s really not her thing. Natalie is worried that her visa expires in three weeks. The courts are closed due to Corona. Mike doesn’t seem to interested in getting married any time soon. They did not actually really attempt to catch fish. That would have been a good dinner!
Look. I know this will be one of many marriages for Natalie. I get that Ukrainian women are suspect. But I can’t help but be a Natalie fan. Mike need to stop stringing her along. Because everything is closing up because of the pandemic, Natalie somehow is able to take the car (or a production car) and sneak off to buy a dress before that happens. I presume production gave her the money for this or made a deal with the bridal shop? I’ve never seen her drive in the US before. The bridal lady is so sweet to her and she needed that. She even sets up an online call to her mama to see the dresses. Natalie is so happy. She looks beautiful in everything. On the third dress, she just knew. But she can’t buy it yet.
What A Dick Move
Later, with two weeks left on the visa, Mike is having cold feet. It should have been then name of this episode as there is a lot of that going around this week. He seems to be dumping her but he gives her the ring back. Before she takes it, she asks if he will stop holding a grudge for giving him the ring back. He says she just ruined the whole thing. She says it is important for her to know that he forgives her. He runs off. Finally, he says he forgives her. He shoves the ring on her hand. She has to ask for a kiss. He reluctantly gives her one. Apparently, he is pissed his moment was spoiled. Natalie is thrilled. They go to the bedroom to have the sex.
Julia & Brandon
These two are planning a wedding but Brandon has a really pissy attitude about it. Julia takes him to look at a church. The church is absolutely beautiful. Julia and I both fall in love with it right away. It has sort of a European look to it and it’s simply perfect. Brandon has no idea who mommy and daddy have invited to the wedding. Does he even have any friends? I’m a hermit and I could come up with friends to invite if I were to get married. Not a lot, but some at least! He seems not to be interested in the wedding at all. But Betty has between 50-70 friends to invite. That is a big group of swingers! Allegedly.
Betty is still trying to move the date up to May second so it won’t be Mother’s Day weekend. But Julia is set on May 9th. The church lady is also on script so she asks why she want’s May 9th. Brandon, is really great at playing stupid and he doesn’t know why she insisted on that day. This poor girl should take the next flight home. It’s the date he first wrote her saying, “This is the day I met my future wife.” In his defense, men don’t remember that shit. Or, you know listen when she tells him ten times. Later, Brandon continues to be a shithead. He says that Julia is crying because he doesn’t buy into the female wedding dream. It means nothing to him. He’s doing it to make her happy. She needs to go home. He totally has cold feet.
Yara & Jovi
Apparently Jovi has managed not to piss Yara off for a few days so she is content in NOLA. She is really not all that difficult to please. She wants some things she chose in the apartment, she wants him to stop getting wasted and fucking strippers, and she want him to spend the weeks he is off work paying her some attention. It looks like she got to enjoy some Mardi Gras celebrations. But then she had to go buy a wedding dress with Jovi’s mom. His mom pissed that Yara won’t let her come to the Vegas wedding. I think she should. Why are they at a regular dress shop? Yara grows a heart and invites her to the wedding.
The next time we see Yara, she is leaving an Urgent Care with Jovi. Yara apparently took a tumble on the street and landed on her back. So she went to go get checked out and the baby is fine and she is just feeling a lot of stress. It’s a day before they head to Vegas. And eight days until he leaves for work again. It’s also his bachelor party night. Jovi doesn’t know what to do. REALLY? Yara tells him to go to the bachelor party but only for a short time. It’s like she doesn’t even know him. She agrees to let him go for two and a half hours but not to get drunk. She has to know he is going to come home an hour before the flight and he is not packed.
Oh the two guys he is going out with are coming to the wedding. So maybe they will be home in time. The flight is in eight hours. They all get shitfaced. Then, they all go to the strip club. One of the guys refuses to go in because he is married with a kid. So he is not going in. He left him with the evil single guy. They are drunk and making it rain. He’s had a million drinks and Yara keeps calling. The bad influence friend is being horrible. He send Jovi upstairs with a stripper.
Tarik & Hazel
Not surprisingly, these two are not getting along. They first need to get married, spend a year alone and then worry about a girlfriend. The fact that a girlfriend is so important to Hazel, that should be a red flag to Tarik. Hazel is still jealous of Minty. I do agree with Hazel that Tarik needs to cut Minty off. In the next scene, it is two weeks to the wedding and Hazel is still not really speaking to Tarik. Tarik goes to get his tux fitted. He’s in a men’s store with $19.99 signs everywhere. His friend tells Tarik he needs to cut off Minty forever. Tarik makes it obvious that he still has feelings for Minty. His friend says he needs to delete Minty’s number.
Amira & Andrew
I really want to see Serbia on the show. However, I really need Amira to dump this fool. She is going to hate the “life” he is offering her. Amira really feels like she has no choice but to go to Serbia. So I flipped back to see where Andrew lives and I am not sure exactly. I seem to recall he flew to the east coast part of Mexico and he lives on the west coast. So I want to say California? I think she is coming to be a model but it certainly doesn’t look like he lives in LA to me.
So off this sweet girl goes to Serbia alone. She cries all the way to the airport. She seems a bit young to actually enjoy traveling alone. Plus she is terrified after being thrown in jail in Mexico. None of her family or friends support this decision. She is afraid to be in Belgrade alone in quarantine for 14 days. It’s all about makeup and modeling. They just reminded up that Andrew lives in Roseville, just outside Sacramento apparently. It’s not the worst place for her to end up. But, Andrew is the worst person she could end up with. Belgrade looks gorgeous. I’ll add it to my plans. I could totally do 14 days in a Serbian hotel room. If they have wine.
Rebecca & Zied
I used to root for these two because Rebecca lives just down the road and I love Tunis. But I think Zied needs to be content he got to see America even if it was just a tiny town, and take his ass back home. I do like that Rebecca is a hard worker. Tarik is supposed to bring her lunch to work and she wants to talk to him. Actually she brought him a bag of food. How kind. They are really trying me to make a 30 minute drive for some hot chicken. I can’t even make a ten minute ride to Zaxby’s for my favorite salad! They meet outside. I a really pissed that she is acting like she doesn’t know how Ramadan works. She says she is not going to marry him for Ramadan. Welp, Zied needs to book a flight to somewhere with furniture.
Stephanie & Ryan & Harris
Clearly Stephanie is in Belize shopping for some black dick. It wasn’t five minutes after Ryan bailed on her that she is trying to see if “she has a future with his cousin Harris.” This woman has deep psychological issues. She just called Harris, “Ryan.” She says she should have been with him first. Oh God, she tells Harris she has always felt something for him deep down. That’s called sexual arousal. It happens. It’s not the basis for a relationship. Now she is trying to break up his family. He is with the mother of his children. They live together. She presses on about taking him back to the US. She asks if she had put his name on the K-1 visa. He says he would already be there. Oh Lord have mercy.
