It’s not really time for my weekly 90 Day Fiance The Other Way Recap but I need a bit of a distraction. I’m also dying to get caught up on this show. It’s addictive. I already feel like I have missed an episode. So, I went back and reviewed the last recap and I guess I just wasn’t paying full attention. Or perhaps it was only Ari and Biniyam that I sort of tuned out on. I can’t take her constant bitching.
Jenny & Sumit
Sumit’s parents are still there and an astrologer is coming buy to do their charts or whatever. Sumit wants to be sure that Jenny serves tea and snacks when the astrologer arrives. This is Sumit’s family’s astrologer of 30 years so whatever he says goes when it comes to Sumit’s parents. Wow the astrologer guy immediately tells the busybody parents to butt out of Jenny and Summit’s relationship. Let them find their own way and stop criticizing them. They should spend time together and basically just eat, drink and be merry. Let them figure it out. Then, mama points out for the billionth time that Jenny cannot have babies. Again, he let’s her know that is none of her business. Sumit’s fate is written in the stars! Hallelujah!
He even calls Sumit’s mom a selfish mother and tells her to let him find his own way. Let him be happy! She cries. He says if it is meant to be it will be. It’s God’s wish. He is really driving the point home. I love astrologer guy. Can he come fix my life? Later, Sumit’s mom, Sadhna, wants to speak with Jenny alone. Sumit’s dad is also there and Sumit is not. She basically that they will love her and accept her in the family. Jenny cries. It’s all happening! She is still bawling in an interview in a different outfit.
Sumit Keeps Stalling
When it comes to blessing the marriage they are not there yet. Then we see that the astrologer has told them that interfering in the relationship only moves this closer together. So this was apparently a ploy. Wow. BUT they also say they will not stop them from getting married. When Jenny tells Sumit the news he cries with happiness. I love these two. Then, Sumit goes to hug his mother and they both cry. Sumit thinks everything is perfect. But his mother is still hoping that he will not marry Jenny. Sumit needs a new barber.
It’s a sacred holiday in India called Holi and it is a festival of colors that celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Well, that is some appropriate timing. They both celebrate the fact that Sumit’s parents are no longer threatening to stop their wedding. BUT, When Jenny asks Sumit if he wants to get married the next day, he says no. He does want to get married, just not tomorrow. Sumit wants to ask the astrologer what the best date is. Oh noe. I know that some of you guys don’t think he will ever marry her. But, I do. I think it will happen soon. But, it looks like next week, Sumit says he doesn’t want to be married because he can’t go through another divorce. GOOD GRIEF!
Arilea & Biniyam
Ari is packing her shit and going to Kenya. That is a huge thing that I missed. I do tend to tune Ari out. She has decided that they are moving to Kenya. Clearly, Bini has no say in ANYTHING in his life. OMG Ari’s mommy is coming with her to Mombasa. BTW, Mombasa is not considered a safe area for tourist. So hey, let’s bring an infant who just had surgery there. What is her reason for not returning to Ethiopia? The child has a nanny he is used to there and a whole family! I hate this bitch.
So on we go to Mombasa. Ari has already tried and convicted Bini of cheating on him. She’s rented an apartment for three months, but if he doesn’t confess she is taking Avi and going back to the US. Because, bitch. Everything with this one is always her decision. And she is playing the victim and crying to her mommy about what HE has done to the relationship. She is so delusional. She literally left him for two and a half months. And then made him fly to Kenya to see his kid. He’s pissed. He runs straight for the baby. Ari seems pissed about that. She goes to bed and closes the door.
The next day Ari’s mom watches the baby while they go out to talk. I expect it will simply be a lecture and a list of directives from Ari. Oh Lord, she has hired an interpreter for Bini. Bini is offended. He rightly points out that Ari is a bitch. Bini doesn’t want to lose his family again. Ari basically says she is done since he will not admit to cheating. Then SHE goes into victim mode again and starts sobbing.
Armando & Kenny
Oh wow! It is only three days until the wedding! Kenny’s family is starting to roll in. Armando is still not sure if his dad is coming or not. I think he will. Armando is such a sweet guy. I can’t believe how nasty some people are in the comments here about these two. Gee, I wonder what that could be about? /eyeroll Kenny’s youngest grandkid, Cooper, is coming with his daughter earlier than the rest of the family because Kenny misses him so badly. The airport reunion was very touching.
When Cooper arrives, Armando is immediately worried that when Cooper leaves Kenny will be super homesick again. He’s already crying to his daughter,Madison, about how much he misses everyone. He says that Armando’s mom and sister are both very nice to him, but he feels like there is an unstated feeling that they really would prefer if Armando was marrying a woman. He feels like Armando would be more supported in Florida. Armando calls his mother to see if she has any idea if his father is coming to the wedding. The last he heard he was not coming. His mom and sisters should be in the car, so maybe he can find out. HE DAD IS IN THE CAR! YAY!
Next Week: Kenny tells his kids that he and Armando have been to a few orphanages and are considering adoption. That does not go over well.
Alina & Steven
Oh Lord. I’m not sure where we left off with these two. Apparently, they got engaged engaged a few weeks ago. Alina says things are much better with them. However, Steven is dragging his feet getting the paperwork done to get them on to Russia. They need to get married very soon because their visa will run out in about a month. Alina spends her time playing with the wild cats. Steven wants Alina to get baptised soon. He is not sure she will get baptized after they get married. Wait he doesn’t trust her? He wants her to sign a piece of paper stating she will get baptized.
Corey & Evelin
Le sigh. Apparently, these two are back together. Because, paycheck? And Corey proposes to her AGAIN at the beach. She said yes. I saw no ring. YAWN! Next week, Evelin and Corey visit her family but she doesn’t want to tell them she is married because they believe marriage is a lifetime commitment. Corey says, that is exactly what marriage is!
Next week, we finally get back to Victor and Ellie…
