Or, as Tom calls it on his Instagram and LinkedIn, "90 Day Dairies." (Which I think would make a better show...)

We're into S2 but I can't find a topic for the show so I started one...

S2E1: the biggest standout was Tom. We finally got to see his girlfriend Mariah in the flesh. Frankly, I'm shocked as hell that she's a real person and not a statue but since she appeared to be blinking out SOS messages throughout the show I'm still not convinced that she's with Tom of her own freewill. I think he courted her so that he could continue his appearance on the franchise. Unfortunately, I don't think she's in on the plan. 

Also, I know I've mentioned this before, but my in-laws live right there by Tom's house. I could throw a rock and hit him-which I haven't done yet but I also haven't been to the UK for awhile. Yes, that house they show is his. No, he does not live there alone. He lives there with him mom, sister Emma, her boyfriend, and their kids. The house has been cut up into sections. Tom doesn't have access to the whole house. 

There were probably other people in this episode but I watched it last week and I've slept and stuff since then. 

 

S2E2: Marcel and Anna might be one of the few "real" couples on the show, and without all the manufactured drama I think they're actually pretty cute. They ARE able to communicate without the translator and they've actually been able to parlay their 90 Day fame into a thriving business. In the world of the 90 Day cottage industries, theirs appears legitimately sustainable. Leo is still cute. 

Danielle was working it on the pole dancing segment. Good for her for trying something new. Mo was right-shame on TLC for focusing on her old drama with him when they could've been showing how well she's doing with school and trying to do something with her life. 

Remember Courtie? Es no parm, Courtie! Well, apparently SHE is the one doing "parm" now...food porn, that is. Yep. She calls it "foot modeling", but let's just talk about it for what it is. She has used HER "fame" into smashing cupcakes with her bare foot. It's as weird as it sounds, but people are actually making bank on this so more power to her, I guess. Unfortunately, when I paused the screen to write this up it landed on her foot smashing the cupcake and now I may never eat one again. Apparently Courtney isn't fulfilled as a foot model so the rest of her segment is devoted to her talking to a life coach. Also, and I say this as someone currently going through the same thing, girlfriend has a goiter and needs to see someone about her thyroid. 

And lastly, we get Becky and Zied which really makes no sense since I feel like we've seen them on everything recently. I don't need an update on them because after HEA, Pillow Talk, etc I feel like I'm living with them in real time. There are lots of things I could say about them, but Zied is literally what's getting my 14yo through the summer so I feel weird making fun of him. (Zied, not my son. I feel fine making fun of him.) Zied and Asuelu might be two of the most innocent and wholesome people I've seen on this series. The difference between the two of them is that I can imagine myself sleeping with one but only burping the other. 

I still don't get this, though. Why do they all think that they only have 90 days to create their dream wedding? Why TF can't these people do it like the rest of us 90 dayers? Get quietly married at the courthouse, get your green card application rolling, and then take your time planning the wedding you want. You have 90 days to get legally married, not to have a wedding. You can have that whenever you want.

Tom definitely has a type.

Short ladies who have had a ridiculous of plastic surgery and fillers.  

At least Darcey is cute and at times very attractive.

The profile views of Mariah with her grotesquely overinflated lips made me cringe.  They distort the entire lower half of her face from her nose down.  

I agree with you about him courting her to stay on the show.  And I love the insider info about his living arrangements.  😂

I've only seen half of S2 E1 as I fell asleep, but I'll definitely be catching up on this mess.  Thanks for starting the thread, @mamadrama!

Anna and Murcel - You want to drive from Omaha to Syracuse for an egg retrieval?  Pump meds into your body?  Hire a surrogate?  Find child care for Leo?  Find someone to cover the store? Pay lots of $$$$ for this?  Asking, in a roundabout way for your kid's blessing to have a baby?  Girl, you are braver than me.  Beekeeping must pay more than I thought!

Danielle - good for you for pole dancing.  You are, shockingly, the least annoying person to me.  Oh what a surprise - your three besties showed up.  Again.  Their story just shows how clinging to this storyline the TLC brass is.  They married in met/married in 2014, divorced in 2017, FOUR YEARS ago.  And they want to drag him out and make him apologize......again.  Her ax throwing date has not called in four months.  Guess that is a pass, Danielle.

Skipped Courtney and Rebecca and Zied.  I have seen enough of those last two.

I'm loving Larry and Jenny and how boring they are. They're both a little flat but they seem to genuinely love each other and appear to work as a team. I'm really rooting for these two.

Check them out on Love Games, where they're called out for cheating (at the game, not on each other).

It was a side of them I hadn't expected 😂

I saw the Anna/Mursel thing on youtube.  I don't understand these women of a certain age who want to get pregnant again or use a surrogate. When you meet a man and you are over the baby years just tell them the kitchen is closed! She has a great business and 3 kids.  Mursel should thank his lucky stars someone wanted to marry him and be done with it.

D+ has dropped a couple of new episodes of this franchise.  

Off the top of my not-quite-awake head, they included (amongst others) Jenny and Larry, Sasha and Emily, Stephanie from Stephanie and Erika, and a few others.  

I found the episodes to be pretty entertaining.  Happy Sunday 🥂

I am liking Diaries these days, I can't bother to finish HEA or even Pillow Talk.  Diaries and a new Single Life is the only reason I'm not canceling my DISCOVERY +at this point.

Melyza. Why did you get back together with him?!? You are seething and crying about how embarrassed you are to be with him. Cut the cord. At this point Tim did everything he could to make amends…maybe he is the one who deserves better. she acts as though she isn’t needy but when he dumped her she begged for him to come back…all while treating him like garbage because she can’t forgive the cheating. I don’t get it. 
 

I wish Anna and Mursel luck. I think a lot of the drama was for tee vee and his English seems better than originally portrayed.

Why is Yazan's dad so happy that he is going to marry another girl from the US? Because she has "roots in Jordan"?

Could Tom look more pretentious (and fake) on last night’s ep? Can’t stand him.

I am sure he thinks he looks like James Bond. He is so wrong!

I know right? He really thinks he is something. He is so unlike able and his poetry is dreadful. I prefer Tarik to Dean. I know people like him but I detected shades of sexism and fakery. He definitely has a ‘camera’ persona he likes to play up to. I do hope that Hazel is able to bring Harry over to be with her. He will have better access to education in the US.

Stephanie's sex therapist's advice... Hmmm... Where have I heard this before? 🤔

Akinyi and Ben - so glad the magic is still there. 😐

What a mope he is. And she's not seeming to be much better either.😴

That was nice of him to put up photos of her family. Since he had 18 months to prepare.

 

Gosh, Stephanie is so pretty in that photo shoot.

What the hell is on my TV? The first segment was Stephanie and for half of it she talked about her illness and for the other half she talked about masturbating. 

Edited to add: it seems I tuned out before the graphic liposuction scene

Sorry to be so hard on Benjamin, but he could have maybe worked on things more before she arrived. Like himself.

 

Boy howdy, she wears the pants in this relationship.

 

In their talking head his shirt is coming open from belly pressure!

 

Edit - he did pull himself together nicely for the ceremony.

OnlyFans has been good to Steph….damn. I skipped past most of her segment. Men pay to see her naked? She seems so….bland.

Akinyi looks very different. I can’t place it but she looks very different to me. Is baptism the new Ramadan? I thought they were already married in Nairobi. She will lay on her back and dream of that green card and the day she can divorce Ben.

All kinds of men like all kinds of women.  The sellers just have to hit on the right market.

Kyle and Noon?

 

I haven’t even watched the season they were on, nice they are still together I guess.

Becky with the bad hair is too controlling. She does not need to sign off on all his friends, she treats him like a child.

Do we really need more Loren, Alexi and baby? They are on Pillow Talk all the time. I do feel bad for Alexi. He must miss his family terribly. I do think they are very well suited and have a happy family life. Nothing to see here. 

Anny was very different.  Very warm and loving. More proof the Anny we saw on her season was all BS. They both seem very sensible and have discussions about life events together. They knew each other for such a short period of time but they seem to be one of the most well adjusted and compatible couples on this show.

Does Fernanda ever have a segment where she's not talking with her mouth full? I feel like I'm in some kind of reverse-Pavlov thing where any time I hear her voice, SHE starts salivating and smacking and slurping. She's fucking disgusting. I'll never get over that exceptionally bad blowup with her ex-husband (honestly can't remember his name -- Corey? Evan? Chuck? Eric?*) where she was blubbering at him and she had snot and tears and spit pouring out of every hole on her head. She's so gross her segments should air during Dr. Pimple Popper.

*Turns out it was Jonathan...

Fortunately, when Fernanda is "coming up," I've fast-forwarded to the next "stars."  I don't think I can endure this "Diaries" iteration.

I get such a kick out of Anny and ? (his name escapes me).  She was asking the little one, Bryson, to make sure his pants weren't on sideways lol.  They seem like a nice family.
