90 Day Fiance: What Now is back on tonight selling the fiction that Evelin Villegas and Corey Rathgeber are engaged and planning a wedding. A source down in Ecuador told us all about their status – they’re married — and have been. And now, we’ve got more details on their frauding – and our source says TLC knows all about it — and doesn’t care.
90 Day Fiance: What Now – Evelin & Corey Staging Scripted Scenes for TLC
In the latest promos for the spinoff, you’ll see Evelin Villegas with Corey Rathgeber down in South America. He’s trying to talk her into marrying him. But that’s not the life she wants – so she says. However, it’s reportedly common knowledge among their friends and family that they married long ago.
So, why is 90 Day Fiance still selling this false narrative? If you’ve been watching this franchise long enough, you know that couples that do what the producers want usually get more air time. And, they get the opportunity to do spinoff shows like What Now and Happily Ever After — and earn more reality TV money.
Last season, on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Corey Rathgeber “proposed” to Evelin Villegas. The show staged a whole hot air balloon scene, but it was only for TV. Why? Because when the show filmed that moment, they’d already been married for more than a year, our source says.
Evelin Villegas Married Him Years Ago – Exclusive Source Spills the Beans
Soap Dirt got is straight from a source close to 90 Day Fiance‘s Evelin Villegas and husband, Corey Rathgeber. In fact, it’s someone seen in the fringes of some of the shots that aired on TLC, but we won’t name the source. However, they told us that Evelin married Corey more than two years ago.
First, you can see above a copy of one of Evelin’s official Ecuadorian documents listing her as married to Corey. Second, our source close to the 90 Day Fiance duo told us the wedding was a couple of years ago, family-only, no big wedding dress — and a huge secret. Why all the mystery?
Of course, it’s about money. The source told SD that 90 Day Fiance would keep using them if Evelin’s story with Corey unfolds on-screen as they film. But, they’ve been together a long time and married for the last few years. So, everything you see on TLC is reportedly a fraud. Not only that, but they’ve split and are now faking being together…
Corey Rathgeber’s Wife Has 10 Year Ban on US Entry – 90 Day Fiance News
We’ve also got the scoop on Evelin Villegas’ immigration status. After they married, Evelin came to see Corey in the US, per our insider. But that was before her spousal visa was approved. So, she was on a temporary visa that ran out. But the 90 Day Fiance wife didn’t follow guidelines.
Our spy told us that Evelin Villegas overstayed her visa with Corey Rathgeber. Then, when she left the US to go home, customs pulled her aside to investigate. They searched the 90 Day Fiance star’s phone and found evidence she’d been working under the table in the US, alleges our source.
It was the illegal work on an expired visa that earned Evelin a 10-year immigration ban, says our leaker. So, that’s why Evelin Villegas can only be on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way with Corey Rathgeber. Reportedly, she’s not eligible for a spousal visa because of her ban. And she can’t get a K-1 because they married years ago.
Plus, TLC knows (says our leaker) and doesn’t care so long as they do what the producers want. So, if you’re caught up in this 90 Day Fiance “love story” between Corey and his wife Evelin, just remember, it’s all fakery, says our source close to the married couple. Tune in Monday nights to see all the (alleged) fraud at TLC.
