For fans of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After or any of the 90 Day Fiance shows for that matter, tell all time is like the Super Bowl. It’s time to take sides, eat snacks and watch the battle begin. Sunday night’s “Colt and Larissa: Judgement Day-Tell All Part 1” aired at 8pm on TLC.
The first hour was devoted to the ongoing drama that is Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima. Larissa was arrested for a third time for domestic violence and is preparing for her day in court. This time Colt and mother-wife Debbie Johnson plan to testify. Pedro Jimeno finds himself in the hot seat. And Ashley Martson admits to being dumb. Let’s break down the play-by-play of last night’s tell all in this recap.
Coltee’s Got A New Ride With AC on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After
Colt Johnson and mother-wife Debbie cruise happily through Vegas in his new car. With Larissa Dos Santos Lima out-of-the-way the happy couple were able to replace the dusty old heat box he drove before. Colt has even filed for divorce from his Brazilian wife. And pulled the application for her green card. Coltee’s not playing and Debbie is positively glowing. She wants her out of Las Vegas. And out of the country.
On 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After Larissa pouts and applies make up. She’s living with her friend Carmen who she met in Brazil and has known for 10 years. Pretty random that she conveniently had a friend in Vegas who let her move in. She tells Carmen that Colt has been texting her that he still loves her and wants to see her. Larissa is very worried about her upcoming trial. If Debbie and Colt testify she could get sent to jail or deported.
Colt and Debbie seek counsel from a divorce attorney on how to go ahead. Because as mother-wife Debbie points out “we want it over”! She wants that home wrecker dealt with ASAP. She even lets the attorney know that Larissa will not get custody of the cats. She’s feeling confident that Colt is serious this time. It’s certainly been nice getting back to normal nights eating beef stew and holding hands by the glow of the slot machine.

90 Day Fiance: Larissa Buys More Time and Gets A New Man
Larissa isn’t the only one with a shiny new toy in her life. Except this one’s a boy toy named Eric Nichols. She met him on a dating app and he’s everything Coltee’s not. He has his own home. And there are no cats wearing dresses or left over casino relics lying around. Eric also doesn’t live with his mother. And even brings flowers. But when he opens his mouth he talks sort of like Coltee. In that “I’m the guy next door but could also be a serial killer ” voice.
On 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After Larissa has a court date and a secret. She hasn’t told new BF Eric about her arrests. he thinks she’s going to court about her divorce. Larissa visits attorney extraordinaire Adam who got her last two cases dismissed. He warns her that this time he might not be able to work his magic. Especially if Debbie and Colt testify. She claims Colt took all but 38 dollars out of their bank account. He also warns her that ICE could deport or detain her.
Larissa invites Eric over to tell him the truth. He seems a little shocked but vows to stand by her. Meanwhile Debbie and Colt hold hands and discuss strategy. Until Colt drops a bomb and says Larissa texted him in the middle of the night that she is lonely and sad and wants to be with him. Debbie mocks Larissa and says even if Colt caves she will testify. Turns out that the court date was postponed for 60 days. Larissa is happy and mother-wife Debbie Johnson stews.

The Cast Rolls Up For The Tell All on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After
The cast of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After trickle into New York City. Larissa will join by remote. As will Azan. Well, maybe. Unless he has a family emergency or a sudden influx of customers at Azan’s Beauty Emporium 55% off sale. Colt rolls through town. When asked what he would do if Larissa showed up, he says he’d feel in between terrible and amazing. Kind of like we feel watching the tell all.
Chantel and Pedro bicker. She’s not excited about showing her boobs on TV this particular time. Because it’s a delicate time in their relationship and she doesn’t want to live in drama. Of course not! Nobody who signs up for yet another reality show, TLC’s new The Family Chantel likes drama! Pedro tells her she’s like gas. Not because she smells but because she gets lit quickly and blows up.
This recap of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After also finds Paola and Russ Mayfield arriving to the big apple for their record-breaking 74th tell all appearance. Russ is cranky because he hasn’t slept since getting up with baby Axel at 4 am. Pao is cranky because well, she’s Pao. She says the calm collective person she was while pregnant is gone. Not sure who she’s referring to but ok. She says they constantly fight. Because she is delusional and Russ is whipped.

Ashley Martson Admits Jay’s Really Young and She’s Really Dumb
Ashley puts on makeup on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. She admits that she’s anxious. She tried punishing Jay Smith with time outs and taking away his Xbox privileges. But he still didn’t learn a lesson. And chatted up a new chick behind her back. She admits to producers that she’s done with Jay. But owns her part by admitting that Jay is very young. But that she is really dumb. A rare moment of clarity on the tell all.
Chaos breaks out in the green room while the cast assembles. Colt chides Nicole Nafziger about Azan Tefou’s absence. Pedro chats up Ashley and then asks Colt what happened with Larissa. He says they are getting divorced. Chantel pipes in that he’s probably happier. He sarcastically says he’s thrilled to be going through a divorce. And that love isn’t enough. Chantel asks if it’s because he loves his mom more than his wife. This sets Coltee off who tells her to shut the eff up.
On 90 Day Fiance: happily Ever After Pedro jumps in to defend Chantel. She repeats her famous “you will not disrespect me today” rant and stops short of calling him a b*tch-a*s-slut-a*s-whore. Which would’ve been epic. Everyone gathers on set and greets host Shaun Robinson. Asker of lame questions and master of fake expressions. Shaun asks about the obvious tension in the room. Ashley is seated right next to Colt and explains that Colt ran his mouth and pissed everybody off.

Tensions Run High on The Tell All
On 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Jay Smith arrives late. Ashley glares at him and wipes back tears. Larissa is beamed in and admits she felt like a third wheel in Colt and Debbie’s life. Colt goes off about how Debbie cooked for her and drove her places in a hot car. But it wasn’t enough for the feisty Brazilian in the end. Andrei pipes in out of nowhere to say Larissa is a scammer and was just in it for the green card.
Host Shaun congratulates the new parents in the group, Pao and Russ on baby Axel, and Libby and Andrei Castravet on baby Eleanor. Nicole chimes in something about May. Um, she said new parents Nicole. Although at this rate Nicole will probably still be here defending Azan when May graduates high school. Ashley admits to forgiving Jay, but then kicking him to the curb after catching him talking to another girl. Jay says there is more to the story. And that Ashley was texting her ex.
