Just saw that Steven was clocked at 77 in a 55mph zone on 1/5 at about 4 p.m. and got himself a $160 ticket. I hope baby Richie wasn’t in the car with him.

I’d like to know where the hell he’s able to go 77mph during rush hour in this area. For research purposes only, of course.

Guess what the GFM money will be used for...?

The GFM money was probably already spent to get him a car that would go 77 MPH.

Steven posted he is flying to Russia to bring Olga home. I would guess they are filming again? or is he that controlling?  because is it not a waste of money and time to fly there to bring her here.

Is that a rhetorical question?

Probably filming, as Steven/Olga, Leida/Loser, and Kanoli/Aswellas are the only couples still together from this season and eligible for a follow-up.

Leida and Larissa both are supposed to be on happily ever after but would not Stephen and Olga be on regular 90 day since they are just starting the 90 day countdown and not married yet? Nicole is filming too but for a show about I go to my spouses country to get married. So many shows to follow, I do not think Kalini is being filmed for anything (per local sources).

@silverspoons -- I like Larissa so I'm happy to see her win but I'm annoyed that leida's antics have given her what she wanted because I think she is mean spirited and vile.  Also, Eric sucks. Colt sucks too, but I like Larissa.

From what I know of my family and friends' experiences, flying long haul with an infant is really exhausting without another adult there to help. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't due to having TV cameras in tow.

I'm sort of on the fence.  Yes, it's probably uncomfortable to fly alone with an infant, but a second adult isn't required so I wouldn't feel comfortable with charity money for something that is more of a super long inconvenience.

Second, how much help is Steven really going to be?  Yes, he is going to be able to help get stuff to the airport and he can maybe hold Richie?  But I think he is more likely to make things worse.  

Often, babies cry on flights because they can't relieve the pressure in their ears and it hurts.  This means that it's unlikely that any amount of holding and attempts at soothing are going to really help.  And I don't think Steven is the guy you want in a super stressful situation with a crying baby that isn't hungry, doesn't have a messy diaper and you just have to wait for the child to calm down.

Even if they had the money for the both of them to fly from Russia with Richie that money might be better spent elsewhere.  I think that Olga would end up doing like 99.8% of the childcare anyways.   And Steven would be angry that he wasn't properly thanked for the .2% he contributed.

I traveled after surgery cross country with my 1 year old twice, so I know how hard it can be.   Just seems like Steven is crying for money on go fund me because he needs basic stuff for Olga and the baby, would save $1k (or whatever a roundtrip ticket to from Dc to Russia cost) by having Olga fly alone.  Olga has been taking care of Richie for 7 month alone and appears tp be doing a great job so I bet one more long flight would be worth it to have that extra 1k towards starting their lives. I also can't see Stephen being a great help , I can see him feeling upset if Richie is more comforted or if Olga knows his rountine better. I just hope it work outs for them. I just want Olga to get her happy family life.

I think he is doing it to help her out. It's not just the flight she has to get through. She also has to be processed through immigration when she arrives. There is probably more difficulty  because she is traveling with a dual citizen infant and maybe needs permission from Steven to travel with the baby alone (even though she is traveling to the States to reunite with the father.) I think he is doing the right thing.

And if baby+mom are both moving here, there's probably a lot of "stuff" they are bringing with them - which isn't just hard to transport alone, but also to keep an eye on if someone needs to feed baby or use the restroom, and also bag-check limits and fees.  He's probably going with no baggage so she can use his seat's full checked-bag allowance as well.

The problem with SteveO is that when he's in "help mode" he requires alot of ego stroking and atta-boys, and flying long haul routes with a baby require you to steel yourself and do whatever you need to do to get that kid through that flight with the least amount of disruption to the rest of the passengers. Can you imagine if they were letting Myson cry unabated and another passenger - like me - gave them 'a look' for not even attempting to walk the baby to the back of the plane and sooth him? SteveO would no doubt start mouthing off...international incident...he's a liability all the time, even if he's 'trying to help'. His help always comes with strings attached.

I think you hit the nail on the head.  But I think he is more likely to start yelling at Olga when the baby can't be calmed or soothed.  It's possible she will end up flying with one little baby and one big baby.  Or maybe she will use my sister's trick.  My sister used to do everything in her power to tire her kids out before a plane ride so they would just fall asleep.

The funny thing about GoFun-me money is that once it’s in the hands of the funderoni they can do with it as they wish with very little accountability.  He can buy a go cart with the money if he thinks it will make him a better father to Myson.  And she can invest in Mars Colony Space exploration and no one would be the wiser.  Keep those funds a flowin!

Well it looks like Steven has returned to Russia and reunited with Olga and Myson (who appears to be called Alex now, not Richie)

Gosh, since everything costs a fortune in Russia, I wonder where SteveO got the money to take Olga skiing...Hmmm...Go Fund My Ski Vacay...And did Olga just happen to have ski gear? That shit isn’t cheap, a lot more expensive than diapers.

They do. It's a nice photo. I've been a little hard on Steven in the past, but I also give him credit when he steps up and takes care of them. A lot of guys wouldn't even be in the picture, but he does try, even if it comes out harsh sometimes. I'm really hoping for all three of them that it's just a matter of maturity and that he will learn from the experience of seeing himself on TV. In the last confessional cam footage where he's home by himself talking about the Tell All, I think he was sincere when he said he felt like an asshole for saying that he didn't owe Olga an apology.

Why didn't grandma fly over to help with the baby?  I'm not sure if she needs a visa or just a passport, but gosh, if she is able, it would be nice to have someone for a little while who can actually help with the baby while Steven goes to work/school and can maybe do some cooking.

My parents are foreign and where we are from grandmother's are SUPER into this.  They love time with the baby and they like time with the adult they are connected to.  I think it might also make Olga feel a little less lonely as I think she will have a tough time when she first gets here.

Everyone smiles in pictures. Especially pictures that net you cash via television programs or Go Fund Me campaigns. It's like the people on FB who post pictures of their perfect lives and their close friends know how miserable they truly are. Steven was a cruel, heartless jerk to Olga because he has unresolved mommy issues or whatever else he blames it on. Those issues don't disappear because you have a baby and get engaged. Who knows, maybe he'll magically go from a weed (and perhaps something else) smoking, angry guy who needs to be numero uno all the time or he boils over, into a dedicated student who not only carries a full time class load, but also works full time to support his family, smiling all the way. I guess we'll see.

Eh, potato potahto. Why? Because it seems like Olga's just happy that SteveO isn't freaking out on her at the moment. And he's probably thrilled that Myson is with his babouschka and SteveO can get his humpin' on. He's like that, he said so himself, it's all about him really. When a fuckwit tells us "this is who I am, I am a selfish asshat who wants my baby momma to put our infant second to us" I take him at at his word. One photo can't erase all the bullshit he's said, and clearly not felt sorry about either.

I still say, there is something about this couple that has me sincerely rooting for them and hoping that they have a happy and long marriage.

I was wondering too if Richie was just called Richie and his name was really a good Russky name Alexander? I never heard them refer to him as Alexander.

My point about the grandmother watching the baby is because we've been told Olga was raised in an orphanage.  I've read the story about how Olga's parents went crazy and murdered her sister and I guess they're both in prison or the nuthouse, but where was this Grandma then? Or could it be Steven's grandmother who has gone to Russia with him?

I had heard Alexander (or a spelling  variation) is the baby’s middle name

It is. I think it's Aleksandr or something close. I don't really follow much of this on social media. Was it ever mentioned why it was so ultra important to Steven to name him after his father and they've since begun calling him by his middle name?

The name change was never addressed on the show, but according to Starcasm: If you are curious why Steven and Olga are now calling their son Alex instead of his given first name Richie — as they did while filming — Steven explained on Instagram. “A lot of people ask who is Alex  well on the show since we named him Richie, that’s what we had to call him in the show,” Steven admits. “But it’s too hard for me to call him by my dad’s name so Olga and I call him by his middle name, Aleksandr — Alex.”

I'm confused as well. I didn't think Olga had family and Steven is mainly estranged from his family.

What the hell? If you can’t even say your Dad’s name outloud, why the hell would you give your child that name, especially as a first name? Dad’s name could have easily been the middle name...you honor him, but don’t have to say it 100 times a day.

I went back and looked at the captions under the photos, and it says the baby was "with grandma".  It wasn't specified as whether it was Olga's grandma or Steven's grandma.  Heck, it could have been Alex's grandma - although, who would that be?  Certainly not Olga's mother.  Maybe Steven's mother?  Maybe the lady he was living with as an adopted grandma?  Or maybe it's a custom in Russia to refer to any older lady babysitting as grandma.  *shrugs*

I think she's mentioned HER grandmother, so I'm sure that's who they're talking about.

Omfg I hadn’t read anything about her. That poor girl! She was in the house when her parents did that to her sister. And reportedly hid her sister’s small children. 13 years old. Makes sense she named her child after her sister, and unlike baby man child Steven doing that for the father he idolized perhaps erroneously, she can say Alex’s name and feel good about naming him in her sister’s honor. I hope Olga’s sister’s 2 children had/have a good life and not have to live under the specter of their mothers tragic death.

I don't remember this ever mentioned in the show. And the made it a point to call him Myson or Ritchie.  I think it's just another made up name for the show. (like Jorge, Chantel, etc)

My theory is that Steven originally wanted to refer to the baby as Richie because he thought it would make him sound more “American” on his passport application.

I have a feeling Steven and Olga are going to be part of the next season.  If so, then TLC is picking up the tab for his trip to Russia.
