’90 Day Fiance’: Asuelu Finally Stands up to Mom – Tells Her No Divorce

90 Day Fiance‘s Asuelu Pulaa is stuck between his mom, Lesina Pulaa, and his wife Kalani Faagata – but is clearly team Kalani (and proves it). Despite his soft-spoken demeanor with his mother, Asuelu finally takes a stand tonight against his mother’s demand that he divorce his wife.

90 Day Fiance: Lesina Pulaa Wants Asuelu Pulaa to Ditch His US Family

In no uncertain terms, Lesina told her son Asuelu Pulaa that he needs to leave Kalani Faagata and their children and come home to Samoa. Why? Mom wants Asuelu to support her financially and doesn’t seem to care much if their sons, Oliver Pulaa and Kennedy Pulaa, go without what they need.

On 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Lesina’s apparent apathy over the kids’ well-being drove Asuelu Pulaa to tears. And in a confrontation with Kalani, Asuelu’s mom made clear she thinks that she comes first before anyone else in her son’s life. Of course, this floored Kalani on the TLC show.

Not only that, but Asuelu’s sister, Tammy Acosta, made a move on 90 Day Fiance to start a physical fight with Kalani. Of course, Asuelu’s wife said she’d drop the other woman. No doubt, his family doesn’t seem to care about what happens to his wife and kids on Happily Ever After.

Kalani Faagata’s Husband Ready to Fight Pulaa Family – Happily Ever After

After a little bit of marriage counseling and a scary session with Kalani’s father, Low Faagata, Asuelu Pulaa’s got his priorities straight. Now, on 90 Day Fiance, he’s ready to confront his mother, Lesina, and sister Tammy about their demands for him to divorce his 90 Day Fiance wife. His mom expects to win this.

Remember, Lesina told Asuelu, “just give me money,” on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. Then his sister said Kalani’s too old for him and brainwashed him. Now, his mom thinks Kalani’s dad will side with them since he’s also Samoan. But she’s in for a surprise from Low and also Asuelu.

Typically soft-spoken Asuelu Pulaa is quite firm with his mother on 90 Day Fiance. First, he grills her about not loving her grandkids. Then, Asuelu tells her to calm down and apologize to his wife. But, his mother claps back and tells him to please divorce Kalani. But, her son’s not interested in that.

Asuelu Pulaa’s Mother Misreads Situation on 90 Day Fiance

Something else amusing on the next Happily Ever After is that Lesina thinks that Kalani might buckle under the threat of divorce. If so, then she’d be a “good wife” to Asuelu Pulaa. 90 Day Fiance fans know that’ll never happen. No doubt, he knows it too. Next, he got firm with his mama.

He said the next day, they’d get together with Kalani’s family, and he said – no drama and no fights. Then, Asuelu Pulaa raised his voice and said no “stupid things.” He also told his mom to stop shaking his head at him. And he said to get her anger under control on TLC’s 90 Day Fiance.

In the end, Asuelu thinks the visit’s a bad idea – and he might be right. But, on Happily Ever After, he’s got a surprising ally in his corner. Kalani’s dad Low is usually read to lay a beat down on his son-in-law. But in this case, he understands the pressure put on Asuelu and defends him.

Maybe Low can broker peace, and you can bet he won’t let Asuelu Pulaa’s mom talk smack about his daughter.
