90 Day Fiance‘s Angela Deem has been working to look her best (and youngest) ahead of her TV wedding to Michael Ilesanmi – so see how she looked back in high school. We’ve got three photos of “Angie” from way back in the 1980s – before Michael was born.
90 Day Fiance: Angela Deem Defies Age Difference With Michael Ilesanmi
As TLC viewers may know, Angela Deem is 54, and married Michael Ilesanmi (age 32) in January 2020. Right now on Happily Ever After, she’s packing to head to Nigeria for the wedding. We broke the news that it was scheduled and then leaked wedding pics when it happened. You can see one of those below.
On 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Angela modeled her wedding dress and crown for her grandkids. Plus, she went in for a Botox touch-up. That’s one of many tweaks Angela Deem’s made to look more youthful for her two-decades younger husband.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what Angela Deem looked like pre-90 Day Fiance, we’ve got the pics for you. In fact, we’ve got three. These are from Angela’s sophomore, junior, and senior years of high school. You might be surprised that she’s easily recognizable and looks much the same.
Was That Teenage Curly Hair Natural on Michael’s Wife – or a Perm?
If you’re a 90 Day Fiance fan that’s too young to remember the early 1980s, you might know the hot hair trends from back in the day. Bigger was better and curly perms were a go-to hairstyle for many teenagers. So, when you look at the three photos of young Angela Deem below, bear that in mind.
Back then, Angela didn’t live in Hazlehurst. In school, her name was “Angie Standridge,” and these photos are more than 35 years old. If you want a laugh, do the math on that. Angela’s 90 Day Fiance Michael was born five years AFTER she graduated high school.
Angela Deem attended high school in Orlando, Florida and was a class of 1983 grad – long before Michael was a gleem in his parents’ eyes. You’ll notice Angie had thick brown hair that’s really curly. Now, she rocks straight blonde hair. So, we have to ask if the 90 Day Fiance star had a perm back then.
Young Angela – 90 Day Fiance Yearbook Blast from the Past
On their seasons of Before the 90 Days, age was always a factor despite Angela Deem’s love for Michael. She wanted assurances that when she got old, he’d be there to “wipe my butt.” And, of course, both worry about Angela Deem toting a bio-kid for her Nigerian husband.
The brunette teenage Angela Deem in pics above came a long way from her Florida high school days. Now, she’s a hit on 90 Day Fiance, and might be the most famous graduate from her school – despite there being a Miss America in the mix of alums, as well as a couple of MLB and NFL players.
We’ve watched Angela on 90 Day Fiance try and regain some of her youth with lasers, Botox, and other procedures. But the quickest way to see young Angela Deem is glancing at her yearbook photos. What do you think? Have you looked at your own high school photos lately to reminisce?
