90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Recap – Sumit Back To Face Jenny Slatten
Jenny Slatten’s still holed up in the apartment she once shared with Sumit on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. It flashes onscreen that Sumit has been given permission to visit Jenny after seven days of being held hostage by his family. But, Jenny is happy to see him in spite of the fact that he lied to her for two years. They share a tearful hug, but Jenny Slatten wants answers. They head to the kitchen where Sumit puffs a cigarette and tries to explain.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Sumit hems and haws about how he didn’t want to get married but had too. And he didn’t tell Jenny because he didn’t want to lose her. Then, Sumit says he tried to make it work for one year. But Jenny Slatten points out he never stopped talking to her the whole time. Jenny reminds him she gave up everything to move to India. And that when she goes back she’ll be couch surfing at her daughter’s place.
On 90 Day Fiance Sumit tells her he loves her and doesn’t want her to go. He says he doesn’t want to be with his wife and that he’s ready to stand up and fight for Jenny Slatten. But the wife has to agree to a divorce first. Later, Jenny reminds him that her time is up and she has to go. She asks if they should just end it. Sumit says no. The two hug it out and cry. And we will drag this story out another week because like on Brokeback Mountain, Jenny just can’t quit Sumit.

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, it’s finally day three of the big fat Tunisian wedding. The extravaganza has been filled with dancing, drinking and vegetable headdresses. Today Laura will wear a blingy white dress and a tiara. Which even she admits is a little over the top. But it’s what Aladin Jallali liked best. So, Laura’s son Liam hasn’t left the hotel or partaken in any wedding stuff. And he had some tense words at the bathhouse with Aladin.
Laura has a tux for him and is determined to drag him to the ceremony on 90 Day Fiance. Liam confronts her about the baby bomb Aladin dropped on him. Laura explains that it’s not up to him to tell them they can’t procreate. Liam says she was supposed to pay for college and support him. And he fears she’ll focus on a newborn and forget him. Seriously. While Laura’s long in the tooth for baby talk, Liam’s acting like a giant toddler. But, he finally relents.

You May Now “Not” Kiss The Bride
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Aladin’s relatives shove Laura into her wedding dress. She admits she looks like the bride of Liberace. She’s carrying a battery operated purple personal fan. This lady sure likes her purple battery-operated devices. Liam’s there too rocking his cowboy hat. Aladin greets him with “hey cowboy”. Also, Liam’s wearing a necklace he swears is a real camel’s tooth. The dude who sold it proved it by lighting it on fire. Aladin thinks it’s weird. So much here is weird Aladin…
Later, the ceremony takes place in front of a white sofa surrounded by flowers. They exchange rings and make it official. Several children cry and cover their eyes as does Aladin’s mom. We feel your pain kids. Aladin steals from the playbook of Mohamed Jbali saying he would kiss her, but you know my culture and all. Laura pushes for a cheek smooch. He suggests they go home for jiggy jiggy. She agrees but qualifies that it has to be good jiggy jiggy. Good luck, Aladin.
