The show airs Monday nights at 9pm on TLC.
Deavan Clegg & Jihoon Lee Welcome Their Son Taeyang Lee on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Deavan Clegg is up before the sun preparing for her c-section. On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, the operation was moved up due to her high blood pressure being a risk to the baby. Her mom drives her to the hospital in the wee hours for the procedure. Deavan is sad that Jihoon couldn’t change his flight to be there for the birth of their son.
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Jihoon Lee and his parents await the video call where they will watch the birth from half way around the world in South Korea. They sit anxiously in front of the computer with some fresh Jiffy Pop. The call comes and Deavan’s mom is live streaming the whole thing from a go pro strapped to her head. She’s even narrating what’s next. “They are literally opening up her insides right now”. Thank god no one offered her a Junior Mint.
Finally we see baby Taeyang on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. He is healthy looking and crying with arms raised, which delights Jihoon’s dad. Jihoon wipes away tears. In a few weeks Jihoon arrives to finally meet his son. It’s emotional and sweet. He gets schooled on how to hold the baby. And also gets a fast lesson in diaper changing 101. He rolls out some English during the diaper change. He comes up with anus and big balls. Ahhh, gotta love this show. Congrats to Jihoon and Deavan on baby Taeyang.

Tiffany Franco and Ronald Smith Apartment Hunt
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, newlyweds Ronald Smith and Tiffany Franco go look for a pad to call their own. Tiffany even sings an annoying little jingle about it. But it turns out getting your own digs in South Africa takes more than wishful thinking and a catchy tune. It takes money. And proof that you will continue to make more money. To pay the rent.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way shows the couple meeting with a realtor. Who’s first question is pretty standard. “Where do you work?” To which a smiling Ronald replies “ I don’t”. Tiffany says she can’t work, you know due to being new to the country and all. However Ronald reminds her that he will be working soon at The Wellness Center. His salary will be a handful of change and some healing crystals. And free yoga on Tuesdays.The realtor utters some sort of word like “oooooooyyeewww”. And explains that won’t really put them in an “up market” area.
First up is an apartment complex surrounded by a tall electric fence. The realtor’s wing woman shows up. She’s quick to mom shame Tiffany when she says Daniel’s bedroom would be the one downstairs with the “burglar bars” on it. When Tiff asks about safety, the realtor smiles and says if they want to break in they’ll get in. And to just scream really loud and someone should come to help. At this rate she should just look for a broom closet to rent at Rikers Island. It’s probably safer.

Paul Ends Up In The Dog House For Real This time on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way
Paul Staehle trots through the streets of Tonantins, Brazil like the many stray dogs in town. A little nervous, always on guard, and viewed by some as a menace. He and Karine have a new home. They opted for the cheaper house. So Karine washes dishes in her half outside kitchen while sporting a sheer black lace top from Forever 21. Paul walks in and tosses his pregnant bride a small green fruit. A Guava, her favorite.
Paul is sweaty and disheveled. Almost like someone who’s come from a hard day’s work. But no. Paul was only looking for work. Which consists of him walking into businesses in a home-made bullet proof vest made out of duct tape and paper clips and picking things up and waving erratically. Which makes at least one of them tell him to get the hell out. Karine pouts and plays on her phone looking for wealthier less weird Americans to scam.
This 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way recap finds Paul and Karine fighting again. With of course a little help from Siri. Karine says Paul doesn’t want to work and isn’t worried about the baby. Paul says Karine is a cheater. Karine says he’s just afraid she’ll find someone who treats her better. Paul takes off his ring and threatens divorce. Karine ends up crying on the toilet. And Paul ends up crawling into the dog house in the back yard. These two crazy kids…..
Jenny: "You don't even know when you are coming back?"
Sumit: "I will be back as soon as possible. I apologize for any inconvenience. Your satisfaction is very important to me. Is there anything else I can help you with today?"#90dayfiancetheotherway #90DayFiance

Jenny Is Tired of Feeling Like a Side Piece and Breaks Curfew
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Jenny Slatten has been left alone in her shrink wrapped apartment for almost a week. Although Sumit left her with the TV on and plenty of snacks and water, she’s going a little stir crazy. She decides to hail a rickshaw into town to go to an employment agency. Hell, if Carrie Bradshaw can flick her wrist on a rainy Saturday night in Manhattan and get a taxi then this should be a piece o’ cake right? Only it’s not. As the drivers sail by the white lady standing in the dirt who looks like she’s doing the hokey pokey.
Finally Jenny gets her ride. She finds the employment agency and asks about work. Of course the man there doesn’t speak English. He tells Jenny without being married or the proper documents she is illegal. Which she says she’s not. Defeated, she heads back home. But decides to break bad and venture into the Indian streets at night alone to find a cyber cafe. There she calls her daughter Christina. We know how badly Christina wants to say “ I told you so”, but she doesn’t.
Later Sumit sneaks out of his parent’s house to check on the exiled Jenny. He gets a street haircut and shave while scolding her for walking the streets alone at night. ( Of course with a camera crew in tow). She says she fills dissed. Like a mistress, like a side piece. I hate to break it to you honey but the only time a 60-year-old would be a side piece is in the nursing home. Sumit is very upset. But he’s torn between pleasing his parents and being with his Jenny. Tune into 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way on Mondays at 9 on TLC.
