What's selective service? 

When men in the U.S. turn 18 they have 30 days to register for Selective Service - better known as "The Draft" (not used sincethe 1970s.)

And how you know the host sucks:  The moderated segment ends with 42 minutes left.

Steven is 100% right about the adult thing and already a much better father than Eric.  He looked visibly pained to not be with Ritchie and Olga, but also very proud and happy.  I believe when Steven is Eric's age, his 20 year old son will be welcome in his home as long as he needs.

Totally agree about Steven.  I liked that he realized he should have apologized about his behavior to Olga and seemingly this was taped before social media walloped him for that.  I sincerely hope that he grows up and becomes a great dad, great husband, great provider. 

And Eric, I hope he has to spend an eternity in hell with Leida.  They deserve each other.

It is where young men register for the draft, if Congress decides we needed to draft young MEN into the armed services.  It is not an automatic induction into the military.  Eric, for a Marine you would think you would know this.

Even when the host asked Eric to tell Tasha she loves him, he looked scared to. He only finally said he loved her after a big delay and after he realized he wasn't going to get away with not saying it. I guess having kids is just an inconvenience for him since evil stepmom arrived. And how many times has Leida admitted she's using him to stay in America? He's too dumb for words.

I lay awake all last night wondering why Asuelo had a band-aid on one nipple?  Does anyone know?

This is probably an unpopular opinion - and I'm not one to drop F bombs unless I stub my toe - but the constant beeping on shows these days drives me up the wall.  I see their lips, I hear the word in my head - I know what they're saying. So what's the point? I think the beeping should stop (except for C U next Tuesday - that's just nasty) and let the F bombs fall where they may. (After 9pm maybe?)

Karma is a real thing which Eric will learn as times goes by. Leida is a hard-as-nails bitch and the man's gonna suffer.  He's already aging before our eyes. I don't know where the mother is in all this, but does Tasha have a job, a safe place to to live? It's not an easy world out there and it doesn't look like she's had any post-secondary. You don't just wash your hands of a child because they turned 18.  You never stop being a parent. You make sure they're able to survive safely and happily. I felt so sad for her.  Hope the mother is involved with her daughters, cause dad won't be allowed to.

Surprisingly Coltee and Larissa were just background noise for the second part of this tell-all.  I doubt Larissa will be deported.  I don't live in the US, but where I live you can be illegal and rob a bank and still not be deported. 

I send best wishes to Ashley for a speedy recovery, but she is a fool.  Jay doesn't love her and never will.  Her life is going to be difficult if she just keeps picking the wrong man for the wrong reasons.  She needs therapy or a life coach or something (not scooter girl).

For some odd reason Fern was indulged and elevated to levels of sympathy and compassion she did not deserve.   Let's all look superior and gang up on Larissa (because she shouts).  

Steven came off as mature and I'm gob-smacked. 

The host of the show let everyone off way too easily.

Tough love Eric?  Go fuck yourself.  No matter what age, when your kid needs you, you take care of them and their problem.  That’s what parents are for.  I only hope Leida dumps you sooner than later, you alcoholic piece of shit.  I don’t know how you got thru the Marines.

Better punishment would be Leida stays with him and continues to act as Leida to make his life a living hell.  Then for good measure, have them be together in a fiery pit of snakes for all of eternity.

As far as I saw, Steven is the only one who apologized to his partner on the Tell-All, and seemingly unprompted.  He seemed like he really wanted to get that out there, that he regretted what he'd done, and that he felt bad.  (I'm shocked they left it in the final cut.)

Marines like to pretend that they were all volunteers when draftees were forced into the Marines with an extra month of Vietnam duty than draftees sent to the Army had.

Oh!  Not just stay in America. Become WEALTHY doctor in America.  

 

 Which won’t happen.  It is more for Aless to become wealthy doctor and take care of mommy.

 

I hope we don’t have to hear from them at all!  There should not be a second season with any of these guys.  They all suck!  Pretty sure Larissa is going back to Brazil unless she gets a good lawyer that knows all the loopholes and keeps her here long enough to marry again.

You are right.  Since becoming a Father, he is the voice of reason.  I was actually proud of him.

Not buying it. Easy to concoct things to say once you realize that Internet backlash at your dickishness is heavy. He's an angry dude with nothing in the toolbox to manage conflict or dissipate anger. It's easy to say what you know people want to hear, it's a whole other thing to actually be that person. We'll see how this works out. I love Olga and wish the best for her.

And then in a fast voice said, "I love you Tasha, " and negated the whole thing buy buying a BUT and adding it at the end.

Nope!  He did no soul searching. He lied twice at the reunion about serious stuff. Olga is not here 2 weeks later like he told us.  He didn’t work his ass off to bring her here.  He set up two Go Fund Me accounts.

Financial qualification is why Olga is not here and Steven refuses to get a proper job.

 

The GFM said, he won’t be able to support Richie and Olga until he finishes 10 years worth of school! 😂 

 

Steven could not relate to Olga giving birth.

 

The only thing Steven could relate is to shitty parents and child abandonment.

His parents treated him just like Eric is treating Tasha. 

 

 Maybe mom and dad  had a lot of partners they chose over Steven, etc......but, he was finally kicked out of the house before turning 18.

 

I know he does not seem like the best kid.....but, parents can try a little harder.  At least until 21 to get their kids straight before telling them....well, it is your life.  I cannot accept it....so, bye!

 

Giving up on your kid at age 15....well, WTF???

 

Eric had the money, y’all!

We saw him spend money on Leida’s family.  He rented a nice cabin and apartment for them.  Provides for Leida and Aless.

The wedding budget looked to be around $2,000.

 

Why do they keep saying Tasha made a mess??  Tasha didn’t make a mess.  She is a slob just like her dad! 

There is a difference.  She didn’t purposely do that.

 

Even when Eric saw the mess he didn’t even react.  He brought Leida’s parents over to tour the filthy  apartment.

 

Eric didn’t mind living in filth before Leida’s arrival........so, what is the problem now???

IMHO the whole deal with Eric proclaiming Tasha is an adult at 18 comes from Leida.  I have no doubt he was under strict instructions from her about what to say. She sat there grinning proudly while he spewed all of that out.  I felt like lots of what he said was half-hearted, but it’s his “last chance at love”. 

Petty note:  something about Leida’s Eyebrows gross me out.

And the vile twat Eric married is a Millennial, so he can take a seat. 

Good point.  I'm a Millennial, and I'll be the first to admit that some people my age and younger are overly sensitive and have trouble doing basic things that other generations handled with ease.  I do believe a part of that has to do with the fact that we were coddled by our parents.  I was.  But once I moved out I figured out stuff because I realized that I was an adult and had to get my act together. That being said, what Eric was saying was ridiculous.  Snowflake millennials are the ones who are 30 and can't handle paying a bill from their parents' basement but still have their daily latte.  Tasha, (who is part of Generation Z), is actually more mature and acting more like an adult than many of my Millennial peers (I'm 33).  Eric can take a hike.

I agree, I think I mentioned earlier that he was the only one who seemed to own his shit and his comments about other couples was pretty bang on.  He did treat Olga very poorly, I just found the juxtaposition interesting.

Wasn't sure if anyone here watched the first or second season. I am scared.

One of those "do as I say" guys.   He can definitely NOT be trusted.  Someone started him on a bad road and he hasn't had much help since.

 "We don't have any Samoan music."

It reminded me of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer stops in for a chat with Elaine's psychiatrist, who offers him something to drink. "I'll have a latte," Kramer says.  "We don't have lattes," the shrink replies.  Kramer: "Why not?"  Shrink: "This is a doctor's office."

Better yet, how could they allow those two human catastrophes to sit there and badmouth Natalie on national television, accuse her of lying and manipulation -- call her a cunt -- and not give Natalie any chance to respond or provide a statement in her defense?   Are television shows allowed to recklessly defame people like that?

Natalie doesn't need to defend herself; her prediction came true. She is fully vindicated. (And she's been interviewed on YT and spilled tea everywhere anyway.)

She also had a Jamaican wedding!  Saw the photos online. She was wearing a nice white dress like the one she wore in Vegas. Jay had a nice suit, etc.

The only thing I can think of is that her child support is pretty good, she has a sugardaddy, or her family has a little money of their own. Or, she doesn’t have a mortgage.  

Personally, I don't believe she ever paid for two and cancelled two pricey weddings to the baby daddies. Nor do I believe she paid $20k and cancelled a wedding to Jay. She may have been thinking about/planning one or two of these weddings, but I doubt any kind of serious money ever changed hands. The stories just don't makes sense. She got pregnant by a supposedly violently abusive, unfaithful man who wanted to marry her and with whom she remained throughout years of cheating and beating until the very moment she wrote a $60K check and then suddenly walked away? And then did the exact same thing a second time, right afterward? Nah. And then a third time spent $20K and K1 visa fees for another guy but suddenly cancelled bc an exbf anonymously posted racial slurs on a bridal discussion group?? GTFOOH, Ashley.

Maybe LONG before he "met" her.   Tasia (sp?) was a special inconvenience--a teenager working and going to school--until he realized he could con her into signing an apartment lease and splitting costs 50/50.  His 50% was always less. He's a waste of space, a barber...and my time.

I’m with you on this. Steven’s aggressive stance with Eric was self-serving. He was standing up for himself against HIS parents. We heard him bark about them all season. Tasha was just a vehicle for him to revenge his victimhood. And his apology (although nice) was general. He just said that when Shawn asked him if he wanted to apologize to Olga, he should have said yes. We have no idea what he thought he should apologize for. I got the feeling he was saying he should have taken the high road... which is still pretty mature for a 20 year old to acknowledge. Doesn’t mean he won’t be back next season to wax poetic about Myson and respect.

I think that what TLC fails to realize is that viewers stop enjoying a trainwreck once children are being hurt in the process. Chantel and Pedro - trainwrecky but no kids were hurt. Same with Pol and Karrini. Nicole and Azan were borderline, but at least Azan was kind and loving to Meg. He treated Meg better than her mom did.

This season, kids are being yelled at, f-bombs are dropped, teens are told their parents don’t want them, men are trying to take newborns out of the country. It just seems like someone should have called social services. I don’t know, Is no one on staff a mandated reporter? It was making me anxious.

I think, like a lot of men who work at resorts, he shaves his body hair “for the ladies” and he cut himself while shaving his chest.

I used to work production for a show like 90 Day and when the uncensored curse words started flying, I almost had a panic attack from the ptsd. On my show, you could get fired for not catching a misspelled name in the credits. Whoever the editor and AP were on this show, they missed that the audio for the last segment was unmixed. I just pictured them getting a frantic call Sunday night and then walking in today to be fi—-red. That was multiple FCC violations which is a lot of money.

I noticed that after the "normal" tell all ended and the skyping began so did the bleeper.    I heard too many to count shit and fucks.

Molly and Luis' story was very sad and uncomfortable for me to watch bc of Molly's two daughters (whose fathers seemed to not be terribly involved). Especially the situations w/ little Kinsley, who has a disability, and was so clearly disliked by Luis.

YES! I enjoyed not hearing incessant bleeping as previous posters pointed out can get quite annoying. To hear Asuelu drop the f bomb without a bleep was awesome. Yes hell had frozen over as Steven showed wisdom with his comments over Eric. I'd have loved to hear comments from Jonathan and company about his split from Nanda. Jonathan also redeemed himself a little IMO. He'll be ok. Nanda may crawl back to him later.

I used to love 90DF.  As many of us have commented on this thread, this season's cast is 100% awful, without moral compasses and who are stunted at age 15 mentally and emotionally.  

I'm going to write to TLC to tell them they've lost me as a viewer unless they can revert to the "old version" of the show.  I had fun watching and snarking on people who were their own worst enemies and watching the imported fiances slowly learn that the US isn't the land of milk and honey that they had envisioned.  I don't enjoy watching this batch of abusive, manipulative, junior high assholes.

I'll also tell TLC that their tell-all host is beyond redemption.  Mario Cantone would be fun.  He would not pull his punches.

maybe if a bunch of us write in, some changes will be made?

(and I can't believe that I'm actually going to write TLC.  I usually only "letter write" on important civic matters!!)

Not a literal check. I mean, she is claiming she waited until these so-called wedding were fully paid for before suddenly deciding to cancel them and end the relationships. Just doesn't ring true to me. I think she was just embarrassed that she had babies w/ two losers who cheated on her but tried to clean it up and make herself look respectable (they wanted to marry me) and sensible (but I said no bc my self respect does not come with a price tag).

I don't think casting has changed so much as producer manipulation has skyrocketed.  They need to lay off and let the chips fall where they may.

Seriously, I tuned out after a half hour in and just partially listened.  The stuff online after the fact is more interesting.  As someone pointed out, they should air the series, then tape the Tell All.

In AZ, we had the couples seeing footage of what others were saying, after Steven said he felt bad about not apologizing to Olga, said they were going to catch up with current footage of the couples, but it was like the show just started from the beginning.  I figured it was because of  Ashley being in the hospital, Fern and Jon divorcing & Col-Tee & Larissa domestic violence. 

And I'm going to 'edit' what I said I saw on the West Coast...I saw the part you mentioned with Steven, and then in the last 5 minutes (not exact) it was the last 5 minutes of Part 1 of the Reunion, they had the segment of Colt and Larissa showing up, coming on stage, more of the yelling we've all seen, and people storming out after Colt/Larissa showed up and then narration of "coming up next time in the season finale..."

But actually what they showed I think was more a uncut version of Larissa and Fernanda's back and forth...it went on longer than the original Part 1 Reunion included.

I think multiple editing errors happened.  They may have wanted to show an uncut version of the end of Reunion Part 1 but forgot a title card and a announcer audtio overlay.  Plus, it wasn't that dramatic.  They could have just posted it online.

I agree. This season started out funny, mostly because of Coltee's man boobs, costumed cats, and doting mother with the slot machine. Asuelu's airport dance and Kalani's reaction were interesting too. However, it quickly turned dark when Steven became abusive to Olga. Only the live chat kept me watching. However, I couldn't sit through the tell alls and watched only intermittently. TLC needs to do a better job with this franchise and reconsider what passes as entertainment in these already difficult times.

Yes, he posted on his FB page that just before Christmas he "finally" passed a home test for marijuana and NOW he could apply for a job! 

Some other thoughts. I seriously doubt that Ashley lost $ 20K on her barn wedding. Even if it was cancelled only a few days in advance, all she would have lost would be a few deposits to vendors. Certainly not the full cost of the cancelled shindig. She had and wore at least two dresses (one for the Jamaica ceremony, one for the Elvis wedding and possibly a third shown in the photos of Vegas which show NATALIE in attendance) 

But I really came here to talk about Eric and Leida. I can't believe that after everyone being at the studio for HOURS (interspersed with pizza breaks) before Colt and Larissa's arrival, the only filming of them that didn't end up on the cutting room floor was a brief segment with Tasha and a confrontation with Steven about how crappy Eric is as a father. I couldn't believe that Eric was still demanding an apology for the actual mess in the apartment, I thought he was using the word as in the way Tasha had "made a mess" of the chances of his children to have a relationship with Leida. And I would have loved for Tasha to turn around and say something like, "This is a hard life lesson, Dad, but it's something you need to learn. You're 40 years old and I'm sorry if you're living in your car but I'm not letting you move into my apartment..."

I know everyone complains about the show but the Host (Shaun?) is given the questions to ask.  I don’t think it is up to her. Producers can see everything on set and tell her what to say in her ear piece.

I think the question format is meant to leave little crumbs....which is the gateway to these boards and social media interest.

Also, more free publicity  for the show.

Makes people tune in to the next season to see what happened.

 

The Giant Host does get a little more sassy but with 3rd rate guests....... like Jesse in his high water gigolo suit! 

 

Ummm, NO!  We don’t want that!

 

 What we really want to know.....is Leida hiding a fanny pack full of gold coins underneath her A Pea in the Pod  shirts?

Where is her wealth????

I swore last season I was done with the Tell All, and I skipped it.  I should have done so with this as well.  And I am likely to nope out of future seasons.

1) This show has passed the point of no return.  I swear this season, they did nothing but bring on dumpster fires.  Three of the couples have already split (I'm counting Ashley in there because I've read that Jay moved out on more than one source).  I think we were 3 or so seasons in before the first divorce surfaced (Chelsea and Yamir) prior.  Last season, one couple didn't make it to the tell all.  I'm not going to continue to support a show that purposely is inciting drama.  Someone is going to end up on the ID channel, and I don't find that funny.  I also found all of the couples this time around to be really unlikeable.  I'm also tired of seeing the lives of innocent kids (and teens) ruined.

2) The producers need to stop the mean girl middle school crap.  What good did showing all of the participants what the others said behind their backs do?  They may be responsible for Larissa's most recent meltdown.  I don't like Larissa....at all....but you don't mess with already mentally unbalanced people like that.

3)  No one past season 2 was under any delusions that they were part of some serious documentary.  They're only going to attract famewhores and cray-cray's at this point, and I don't want to watch that.  The fakery this season by the couples should have cemented that.

4) BE HONEST.  I hate how all of this nutso stuff comes out about the participants as the show goes along, and people just pretend it never happened (Leida's past, Larissa's kids, etc).  That's for both the participants and producers.  Stop with the fake plotlines.  In this day and age, someone who does something miniscule can be made to "go viral" and receive death threats, and the show has been known to create drama where there is none (especially when they need to advance certain narratives - this has been going back to season one - there have been plenty of complaints).

5)  Have someone run the tell-all who actually watches the show.

As an aside, did anyone else think that perhaps if Tasha was a girly girl, that perhaps Leida would be nicer to her?

Ha, who looks at THAT guy and says to themselves, "I wanna fuck him."

Right?!?!!  I mean I respect the passionate show of happiness, but no thanks.
