90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Recap: Ronald Smith Resists Temptation and Marries Tiffany Franco

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, It’s Tiffany and Ronald’s wedding day. As Tiffany gets ready she can’t help but be nervous. Because she sent former gambling addict Ronald Smith to pick up her dad in a casino. She half expects Ronald to get sucked in to his old life. And pictures him slumped over a Black Jack table saying “hit me” instead of standing before her saying “I do”. Ronald comes through though. And calls to report he’s in the car with Tiffany Franco’s dad and it’s all good.

Tiffany’s dad Carlos is a pretty hip dude on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. He’s like an 80’s crossover of Bruce Willis and Don Johnson. The ceremony begins and Tiffany Franco walks down the aisle to Kenny Roger’s “The Gambler”. No, that’s just me dreaming. Ronald Smith cries when his lovely bride walks down. I have to say that dress was perfect on her. Daniel hands the rings over and calls Ronald dad. All in all it was a pretty lovely wedding. Congrats to all.

Paul Staehle & Karine Martins House Hunt on 90 Day Fiance

Paul Staehle’s life is the definition of hot mess on 90 Day Fiance. He has been labeled a terrorist by the Brazilian government. His mother-in-law hates him. And his very preggo wife has strange men on the internet sending her texts and cash. The stressed out couple call a real estate agent to help them find a place of their own in Karine’s hometown of Tonantins, Brazil. The agent shows up dressed like Paul in some sort of vest. I think this man needs his own show “$200 Dollar Listings Tonantins”, ASAP. You listening Bravo?

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, the couple look at two places. The first is fairly large and 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way likes it. But the rent is too high. Karine Martins politely reminds him that he has no money or job. And that he is also deemed a terrorist, which might make job hunting a little tricky. The second place is affordable, but of course Paul thinks it’s too hot and has bugs in it. Karine points out that it’s only  a little over 200 US dollars a month. But Paul’s not into it.

Later Paul and Karine eat with her mother. She is upset because Paul has asked for a DNA test. Mama Karine is sick of him dissing her daughter and wants to know why. Paul says it’s the US embassy that requires it. Good save Paul. As Karine shows Paul her phone to translate something, a message pops up from an American named Jared. Paul is pissed and demands to know why she’s talking English to another man. Karine grabs the phone and says he sends her money. To be continued…..

90 Day Fiance Recap: Deavan Clegg Questions Jihoon Lee’s Commitment After Baby Health Scare

Deavan calls Jihoon to fill him on her doctor visit. She has a planned c-section scheduled. And Jihoon has already purchased a ticket so he can be there. But the doctor told her that her blood pressure is dangerously high. And that the baby’s is too. He wants to do an emergency surgery quickly to protect her and the baby. Jihoon doesn’t fully understand but gets very upset. He’s already purchased a plane ticket.

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Deavan asks Jihoon if he can change his ticket so he can be there with her. He says he can’t change it because it’s too expensive. This understandably upsets Deavan who says she questions his commitment.

Corey Can’t Win In Ecuador

Corey Rathgeber frolics on the beach of Engabao after a day of fishing on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. His beachy bliss is interrupted by some local dudes calling him by Evelin’s ex’s name. Evidently there was another gringo amore before Corey. He stops to correct them and heads back to the beach side bar he bought with his retirement income. Evelin is always just so bored with Corey. She can barely keep her eyes open when he speaks.

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Corey tells Evelin about his surf side humiliation. She tosses it off as no big deal. That they sort of look-alike. But clarifies that her ex was beloved in the village. He spoke Spanish and was pals with everyone. He is only an ex because he didn’t have a 401k to build a shack on the beach to sell drinks. Evelin admits that she fooled around with her ex when her and Corey were on “a break”. It’s like a third world Ross and Rachel from Friends.

Corey knows about it and it still upsets him. Evelyn also informs him that she is still friends with gringo number 1 on social media. She also tells Corey that she’d like for him to stop bringing it up and leave her the eff alone. Corey agrees to her demands. Sigh.

Laura Learns The Do’s and Don’ts of Life In Qatar – It’s a Man’s World

Laura and Aladin Jallali have had some tense times lately on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. She introduced a battery operated stranger into the bedroom. Which insulted Aladin’s manhood. The sex toy is now in a landfill somewhere, but still on Aladin’s mind. Which Laura says he needs to open. Aladin takes his randy bride to a market in hopes of her getting suited up for Ramadan. He explains it’s about fasting and restraining from things. Including purple vibrating things made in China.

On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Aladin would like Laura to have some traditional dress. He suggests an Abaya, a traditional robe like dress. He selects one for her to try on. She says it makes her feel fat and subservient. She much prefers her emoji nightgown and leopard print house coat. As those garments make her feel thin and dominant. She says she’ll consider it for Ramadan. She takes a few potshots at the way the culture treats women.

Aladin would like for her to meet his boss. Who lives with a bunch of exotic birds. The birds compete in shows. Laura is afraid of them. Aladin already warned her not to try to shake his bosses hand. During light talk his boss lets it slip that men in Qatar can have up to 4 wives. This is news to Laura whose only experience with the Middle East in her 50 some years must have been at  Disney’s Epcot Center. Tune into 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way every Monday at 9 PM on TLC network.
