’90 Day Fiance’: Andrei & Libby’s Family Frauding Fans with Moldovan Melodrama?

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After has Andrei Castravet facing off with the in-laws including Chuck Potthast, Charlie Potthast, and Jennifer Potthast — but is this much ado about absolutely nothing? There’s a sentiment churning among fans that this is all semi-scripted drama to make this big fat Moldovan wedding seem more interesting than it is.

90 Day Fiance: Tampa Trio Grilling Andrei Castravet – But They’ve Got Criminal Records

The first issue with this Happily Ever After drama is that even if Andrei Castravet had some legal trouble in his homeland, the Potthasts don’t exactly have clean hands. Papa Chuck Potthast has a mugshot in his past for an unpaid child support contempt charge.

Plus, there are a few other items on his record and several Better Business Bureau complaints attached to the 90 Day Fiance dad’s rental properties. As for his son Charlie Potthast, he’s got a mugshot too. Charlie’s is for drunk driving and another for possession of a serious narcotic.

As for the third member of the Florida inquisitorial guard, Jen Potthast’s got an arrest and mugshot as well. Her charge is for driving on a suspended license and failing to register her vehicle. So, these are the three 90 Day Fiance perps digging into Andrei’s background. Interesting.

Moldovan Mod Squad Drama All for Show on Happily Ever After?

Longtime 90 Day Fiance fans know that they shoot long days until cast members are frazzled and get snappy on camera. And, past cast members have flat out said they’re fed lines and given some scripted scenes. So, that leads some to believe these scenes in Eastern Europe could be more of the same.

After all, how dull would it be on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After to see Andrei Castravet, Libby, and the family Potthast getting along? Instead, we have threats over dinner between Andrei and Charlie. Plus, the running gag of Charlie, Jen, and dad Chuck’s low-rent peep into Andrei’s past.

At least with 90 Day Fiance‘s Pedro Jimeno and Chantel Everett’s brother, they brawled at dinner. That fight was one for the record book. In comparison, the Castravet vs. Potthast faceoff was lame. There are too many red flags that these TLC scenes might be staged.

How Did the 90 Day Fiance Family Even Find Andrei’s Friend Marcel?

One question asked by Happily Ever Fans is — how did the Tampa terrors contact Marcel to meet with them? And why do these crusaders find it so hard to believe that Eastern Bloc corruption might have driven Andrei away? Those three push the stereotype of the ugly American abroad.

These are the same people who, on 90 Day Fiance, called the dinner Andrei’s mom prepared “peasant food.” That also rubbed fans the wrong way. Libby’s family acting the fool, no doubt, intends to keep Happily Ever After fans tuning in to watch TLC.

After all, a vow renewal is not so dramatic, but you’d think something huge was at stake watching. In the latest 90 Day Fiance promo, Elizabeth Potthast said she wasn’t sure if she wanted to marry Andrei Castravet. They treated it like an ultimatum.

Umm… They married years ago. So, precisely what’s the threat? What do you think? Is this Moldovan mess with Libby’s family playing low-rent G-man investigators just more frauding? Or is it the real deal?
