Also, Shaun, she not only doesnt watch the show, she thinks it is beneath her. She always looks like she is smelling something disgusting and she looks stunned most of the time. Waiting to hear from her ear piece what to say next.  The show should be hosted by someone who is somewhat of a fan and knows what is out there on social media. Or at least someone who has an idea what is going on. When Shaun came onstage and the stage manager was briefing her, you could tell that was her first introduction to the Tell All. Just get ready to read the prompter. Sorry this is where your career has gone Shaun, but please spare us.

I think she has no idea what to ask and what to say so she is waiting for the producer to give her a question to ask.  She does that same "Wow" look on her face, or even just the "wow" comment every single Tell all!  She's awful.

And when she does seem to ask a question on the fly, it's always awful.  Like after Leida rails on how horrible it is to deal with stepkids, her question is, "Do you think 90 days is enough?"  WTF kind of stupid question is that when the evil stepmom is doing the woe-is-me about having to deal with stepkids she was horrible to?

Better question:  "Do you cry when Cinderella pulls out the other glass slipper proving she is the Prince's lost love after Lady Tremaine has gone so far out of her way to keep her from trying it on?  What's that like for you?"

I was done with her the year she asked the other women if they believed Anfissa when she said Jorge was the first and only man she had ever been with and Pao said "No I don't; look at her" and they all smirked. It was a completely disgusting display and she is trash and so is Pao.

I'm also amazed with all the crap done on this show they give so much time to Jay's cheating. In this group, it was actually not even top 3 disgusting behavior. A man tried to flee the country with someone's newborn baby! A woman asked a man to relinquish his parental rights!

This is getting really ridiculous!  I am responding to this comment because it is the most recent but many people here have said that he was trying to leave the country with the baby.  Yes, he did say that he thought he should take the baby to America but he NEVER tried to take the baby without Olga knowing.  No matter what you think of his plan - what we SAW was a PARENT discussing custody of a child with the OTHER PARENT!   And again, no matter what anyone thinks about his qualifications to parent or what is the best situation for a newborn it is up to his parents to decide what THEY want to do.  Painting him as some sort of international child smuggler/kidnapper is really jumping to conclusions. 

Whether or not he was committed to Olga is a separate question.  He should have been up front about her visa but even if they decide they do not want a relationship with each other he still has rights to see his child and they would still have needed to come to some sort of custody agreement.  You can't just say you THINK he will be abusive in the future and therefore he should have no right to ever see his child again!

He might have had filler as well as botox. I have a deep "hatchet mark" between my brows and botox did nothing for it really. It kept it from getting worse but it doesn't diminish the appearance of the existing mark, which would require filler. The preferred treatment would be to do both filler and botox but I just live with it...

As I said, I was just using your comment as an example of things said on this board.  I am sorry if you thought I was putting words in your mouth - it was not my intention.  However, my original point still stands.  We were never once shown an instance where Steven took the baby and  Olga did not know exactly where that baby was.  We can not know if Steven THOUGHT he could take the baby without Olga's permission but we do know he never SAID he would simply take the baby!

I think your point is valid.  I hate Steven, and i think he had every intention of taking Richie back without Olga.  It does seem suspicious that he was all sorts of pushy about getting richies passport, because he knew at the time he was pushing for richies passport that Olga couldn't have come to the states.  

So, to me, the only reason you push to get a passport for Richie is because you want to take him to the United States asap.  If you know you haven't applied for Olga's k1 visa yet, you know she can't come to the us with you.  So if you're on the up and up about taking the baby back without Olga, why not talk to her about it before you get richies paperwork?

But, you're right, ultimately it ended up being a discussion, even if it all seems weird.

Well, while we know this rarely happens on this show, there is a SLIGHT chance of producer manipulation here also : ).  They could have decided that it was a good idea for Richie to have the US passport for many reasons and we never got to see the discussion.  Also, isn't it possible that even if Olga didn't get the K1 she could get a visitor visa and bring Richie in the future and they thought this might make it easier?  I don't think it is out of the question that Olga could get a normal, visit the US visa.

Serious question here. Not trying to be mean, just trying to understand the psychology of it.

Where would a girl like Fernanda get the idea she is so beautiful she has a good shot at an American modeling career? It seems she was aspiring to this for several years, even as a flat chested, buck toothed teenager. Even Fernanda's own mother is prettier than Fernanda. Who is feeding her these lies?

There are skeevy "modelling agencies" all over.  A former co-worker of mine went to one.  She paid a ton of money for "classes", photos, etc, and never got anything out of it, except less cash in he bank account.  They prey on the delusional.

I actually don't think 50k is that bad in a place like Wisconsin where the cost of living is low.  But I don't think he has any savings (which is sad given that he is 40) and that he was once homeless.  He also needs a bigger place to live now that Leida and Aless are with him, and I don't think he can pay for that. 

If Eric had his act together and had some money in the bank I think he'd be okay.  I live in a very high cost of living area and we live as a family of three primarily on my husband's income (I work from home very part-time because I stay home with our son), and while my husband makes more than Eric, given what we pay in property taxes and things like that, it is probably about equal to 50k in Wisconsin.  The difference is we have good credit scores and have money saved from when we were both working pre-baby.  We also live frugally.

Once Leida gets her green card she should be able to contribute by doing something (but then again I'm sure she won't actually get a job and will instead continue with her delusional thinking that one day she'll be a doctor). 

My husband and I can live comfortably here in PA on 50K.  We actually live comfortably on less.  But we have a decent credit score, and pay our bills......

Producer manipulation is entirely possible, but I can only go by what I see, but am always open to alternate explanations because I know reality TV producers aren't honest.

I totally agree that Richie having the passport could have been a joint decision.  But if Olga had no idea that Steven hadn't applied for her visa yet it might have changed the Dynamics of the discussion.  I think that's where I fall down.  They could have had that passport discussion, but it doesn't seem like they had it before Olga found out that there was not k1 visa in the works.

Instagram and Fashion Nova. She will probably never be on the cover of Vogue but the Target Spring collection mailer is not out of the question. I actually think Fernanda is pretty but someone said she looked like a sock monkey and now I'm questioning all my life decisions.

You could be right but Olga seemed entirely too calm when Steven made his "confession".  You can't just apply for a K-1 visa without the other person giving their information.  I base this on absolutely nothing but unless she filled out paperwork and Steven simply didn't file it she was probably aware that nothing had been done.

4) Fernanda split on John and they currently hate each other, she got her green card and split (unlike Pao, John will not follow her, he's staying put-- what happens when you marry a cokehead in the club scene; new girls turn 18 and 21 everyday-- he's going to find them)

Wow, green cards come very fast when you're on a hit show, don't they? Does anyone know when she arrived her vs when she had the green card in hand?

From what I understand, her green card isn't permanent for another couple of years and Jon could try to stop it. I wonder if he will and if he really feels used and angry? Or just like whatever, bye.

More things I've learned on Social Media:

1) Johnathan recently declared bankruptcy

2) Leida only agreed to date Erik if he would agree to be on the show (this he admitted during a joint interview with a newstation)

3) Erik's ex-wife did an interview and said Erik drinks too much and is a womanizer. Ledia appartently called the Jenica dumb and slow and now and Jenica doesn't want to spend time there. The ex is not going to let Jenica go over there anymore. (Erik would have to take her to court to get custody, they only have a verbal agreement).

4) Leida tried to get a boyfriend to adopt her son before she came to the US so she could be kid free, and she didn't want her parents to raise him

5) Leida's son can't speak because she never taught him and he spent all his time with baby-sitters in Japan and they ignored him

6) Steve has a Gofundme account to pay for Olga and the baby

7) Larissa has two kids from two ex-boyfriends. One was adopted by an aunt, and the other is with her dad

8) Ashley has lupus

I just saw a TLC update that Kalani had to take a break from the Tell All every two hours to breastfeed her child. Hasn't she ever heard of bottling her milk so that her sister could feed Oliver back stage instead of holding up the entire production? #HighMaintenance

Now, I've got two kids and another on the way so I understand that they gotta eat, but did anyone else find it strange that she would just whip one out on international television? She didn't have a little burp cloth or anything to put over that thing?

Of course, she was standing there fully exposed on a cold day in front of the Statue of Liberty so knowing how confrontational she is, I figured she must have something to prove.

Nothing wrong with a woman breastfeeding in public. She sure isn't shy though.

Also noticed Jay giving her sly looks... probably wondering if she was on Tinder?

Many years ago, my husband was here on a student visa when we got married.  Maybe it was different because he was already here but I remember we needed to go to immigration with many forms and much documentation.  Once it was approved (and we were told it was in the only visit we ever made) it didn't take long for green card to come  I don't even remember how long it took.  We did have to prove we were still married 2 years later for him to get permanent residency - we had to show things like a lease in both our names and shared property - like a bank account with both our names on it.

Some breastfed babies won't take a bottle. Maybe Oliver is one of them.

No more strange than an adult drinking from a bottle of water. The baby was hungry and she fed him (what "that thing" is actually for). She didn't need anything to cover up - between Oliver's head and her hair, Kalani wasn't exposed at all.

From social media:

1) Erik makes around $50k a year. IMO that can not afford to support one other person let alone a family of four (2 kids and a wife, and self).

We knew this earlier, and I bet he told her that that was his income.  To her I expect it sounded like a lot more than it is--whatever it translates into Indonesian currency might be a healthy sum.  If this is the case, it clears up for me the mystery of why she thought she was marrying a man with money.

Good.  I didn't look at it, but can someone explain to me why a man would record himself masturbating?  Is there a woman alive who finds watching a man jerk off a turn-on?  That was my big question about sex offenders like Weinstein and Louis CK, both of whom forced women to watch them masturbate.  I could understand an abuser telling himself that his victim secretly enjoyed the fondling or even the rape, but seeing a guy jerk off?  Do they really think women secretly like that?  Wha?

Where Fernanda and Jon's relationship seems purely superficial. He buys her boobs and takes her to clubs. They take glamour shots together. They think they are the shit. Where Colt and Larissa just want some A/C and a couch. They eat whatever the mom cooks. They are the blue-collar equivalent of Fernanda and Jon. Who both come off as snobs. 

 

No way could Colt be blue collar...by definition.

I see one as the couple wearing the masks. And the other couple is when the masks come off and the crazy comes out.

Yeah, good on Kalani for breastfeeding w/o shame. (Tho I admit I was momentarily taken aback.) Being pregnant is hard! So many props for looking cute and comfy!

I did love Kolini's blue (velvet?) jumpsuit the best, tho!

I gave a little bit of a side eye here. I don't get the vibe that Asuelu would say no or ignore Kalani if she called him and asked him to send diapers or some money for Oliver. I realize he said that he thought all people here were rich and all but I wish there was more info on how it came about that he sent nothing.

I was DISGUSTED to hear how lax Asuelu had been about providing anything for his child. And for two seconds I empathized w/ Low (Kalani's father). No one expected Asuelu to send hundreds of dollars a month. But why couldn't he send him little native outfits, native jewelry, handcrafted toys, religious icons, etc? And a few $. And face time w/ him several days a week? I respect the fact Asuelu supported his parents. But he's a father now and priorities have to change. Look how fast they changed when he was offered the chance t move here...

Yeah, something seemed so off about her reaction. Not only did he admit to being a liar, he called into question her entire future, Richie's future, the possibility of them raising him together and the possibility (however slim) that he might take Richie away from her. And all she did was tilt her head and say "you should have told me earlier, Steven." Really???

No, we didn't see him plotting to steal the kid away but the mere suggestion that he should take a nursing baby away from his mother bring him to America with zero experience, no job, no real support system available and and a hair trigger temper was disgusting.

I wasn't suggesting that it's cool to not support your child. It is disgusting if he was lax and didn't bother. But to me, it doesn't match his character on the show. I want to know if Kalani asked him to send money and diapers and whatever and he said, "No. Why should I? You live in a rich country and don't need anything from me" or did Kalani cease contact with him and never reach out to him for help. It was not made clear whether she asked for help and he refused. He's childlike to such a high degree. He doesn't know a lot of things that people think he's supposed to know. If he really did feel like Oliver would be well taken care of here because everyone in America is rich and he needed to continue to support his parents, I don't see it as coming from a cold hearted, cruel dirtbag. I seriously would have seen it as a teaching moment and let him know that he is definitely misinformed and it doesn't matter if Kalani is wealthy, he should be contributing. I don't see him fighting back against that. I just think he has led such a simple life that he just doesn't know. The answer to that is not to skewer him, but teach him. If Kalani wanted an smart, educated, in the know person, she wouldn't have married an Island boy who is very naive about the world. She can't expect him to know things that he is not aware of and it's not really fair to trash him for being unaware. She can trash him if she explains things and he ignores them, of course.

Because she's naive and 20 and thinks he will change? She wants to come to America and this is her only way. I don't know. I think she is foolish for doing so but everyone does foolish things when young. Look how giddy she was when he gave her the ring. Look how happy he was. It's a euphoric moment. But put that up against how he treated her at many other times and even his attitude on the tell all: The host asked OLGA what time it was in Russia and Steven jumps in and answers the question. That is telling. I feel bad for Olga. She will be in a strange place, unable to work and completely dependent on Steven for everything. She'll have no say in a lot of things. Hopefully, she will find some type of support system, or he'll get this ass into some type of anger management and therapy and grow the eff up.

If Kalani wanted a smart, educated person, she wouldn't have married someone with such obvious cognitive and emotional challenges.  The head-slapping, stalking around and barking should have tipped her off.   That can't be the first time she has seen it.

I wasn't suggesting that it's cool to not support your child. It is disgusting if he was lax and didn't bother. But to me, it doesn't match his character on the show. I want to know if Kalani asked him to send money and diapers and whatever and he said, "No. Why should I? You live in a rich country and don't need anything from me" or did Kalani cease contact with him and never reach out to him for help. It was not made clear whether she asked for help and he refused. He's childlike to such a high degree. He doesn't know a lot of things that people think he's supposed to know. If he really did feel like Oliver would be well taken care of here because everyone in America is rich and he needed to continue to support his parents, I don't see it as coming from a cold hearted, cruel dirtbag. I seriously would have seen it as a teaching moment and let him know that he is definitely misinformed and it doesn't matter if Kalani is wealthy, he should be contributing. I don't see him fighting back against that. I just think he has led such a simple life that he just doesn't know. The answer to that is not to skewer him, but teach him. If Kalani wanted an smart, educated, in the know person, she wouldn't have married an Island boy who is very naive about the world. She can't expect him to know things that he is not aware of and it's not really fair to trash him for being unaware. She can trash him if she explains things and he ignores them, of course. 

I agree.  I just don't think the thought crossed Asuelu's mind to send any kind of assistance.  It wasn't malicious or intentional.  It just never occurred to him.

Do they really think women secretly like that?  Wha?

Why not?  They think women secretly like everything else they do.

Totally. I was looking at her during that time and she wasn't alarmed or shocked. If my husband acted that way and I had never seen it before, I would have been aghast and probably fallen over in shock. She didn't have much of a reaction so I thought this wasn't the first time she saw him flip.

There's a picture out there (on the Eric/Leida thread) of Eric with Ashley at some 90 Day event. He's wearing a t-shirt that says something like "It Must Be Proper" and miraculously, his forehead crease is gone! That led to some conjecture that Leida is indeed messing around with Botox injections. 

Big difference.

Thanks for posting this (I was too lazy to look it up myself.) The more I look at the before and after, the more I think it's Photoshopped. Even his eyebags look smaller.

There's an entire sub-genre of erotic fiction about it. For real.

After watching the second season of Goliath and a few choice episodes of CSI I will never be shocked by the things people get off on.

I am stunned that he is a womanizer.  How is that even possible????

RIGHT????  Is he considered sexy in baraboo?  Is the population like 95% blind single women who don't have access to a computer?

Because she's naive and 20 and thinks he will change? She wants to come to America and this is her only way. I don't know. I think she is foolish for doing so but everyone does foolish things when young. Look how giddy she was when he gave her the ring. Look how happy he was. It's a euphoric moment. But put that up against how he treated her at many other times and even his attitude on the tell all: The host asked OLGA what time it was in Russia and Steven jumps in and answers the question. That is telling. I feel bad for Olga. She will be in a strange place, unable to work and completely dependent on Steven for everything. She'll have no say in a lot of things. Hopefully, she will find some type of support system, or he'll get this ass into some type of anger management and therapy and grow the eff up.

So, let's say Olga were here (I guess she is now) and they get married (or don't) since Richie is her child and an American citizen does that make it easier to stay if Steven isn't in the picture?

If there is any impression I've gotten of Olga it is that she has it together, much more so than Steven. 

She has an apartment, she was going to school, she funded her summer vacation with a job showing some degree of responsibility and planning.  She has survived on her own with what appears to be relatively little help from family and friends.  She survived a Russian orphanage.  She seems composed and patient, she went through a C-section and put up with Steven being an ass with relatively little complaint.

I could see her getting her act together, going to school, getting a career and supporting Richie. 

Given Stevens attitude, I don't see the same opportunities for him.  The whole "I don't want to be told what to do" and "you have to thank me for doing stuff I'm supposed to do" generally doesn't go over well in the workplace.

Maybe Ashley should try to buy a butt.

Too bad she can't buy some character!

The faces she was making when Larissa was talking made me think of a girl in middle school. She is really immature!

Also, it's painfully clear that Jay used her to get to the United States. He's very calculating. He waited until they were married to mess around because in his mind, he felt safe. So he started putting his Abe Lincoln beard on Tinder.

He's only sorry he got caught.

And, he probably resents Ashley more and more with each passing day because she can't stop bickering.

As for Ashley, she's just weak A.F.  She should have had the police remove him. He could go stay with relatives, just like Luis did.

^^ yeah what is it with that beard?  It literally only worked for Abe Lincoln.

Why is she still paying his phone bill if he is using it to meet women on tinder?

I agree that Asuelu just assumed that Kalani was rich and had walls and so his son would be well taken care of until he arrives. I don't think that he's a deadbeat because he said that he takes care of his parents. I think he will work a job in a warehouse someplace doing something he loathes in order to support his family. Between the miserable job and Kalani's constant berating him, he will be very beaten down. His mother's constant encouragement has been replaced by Kalani's constant disappointment.

I think he has some undiagnosed issues. He's been taught English, but it is a constant struggle for him to speak in a foreign language. And, when more than one person is speaking at once, he can't deal.  Based upon what we saw, there's no way that I would want to leave him alone with a baby who can scream and fuss and make noise. Now he'll be in a situation with two kids screaming and fussing and making noise. I've raised two children who were close in age and I know you have to stay calm. Little people just don't always do what you want them to do, and you can't start yelling and hitting yourself when you think things are going awry. The fact is, a little chaos is normal!

The behavior we are seeing is not a Samoa thing. It's an Asuelu thing. The guy has some issues! Kalani was desperate, and she picked him based upon his appearance. She doesn't have a tight trim body like Larissa or Fernanda, and, there's not a thing wrong with that! However, like most of the Americans on the show, she's shallow and she wanted a man who had a tight trim body himself. But he looks at the size of a country on a map and determines that his son doesn't need anything from him. Even taking his culture into consideration, that's not adult behavior.

Because she's stupid.

She traded her dignity for the D.

And she'd do it again.

Yes, his parents most likely miss him and worry about him as much as he does them. :( 

Kalani is very...childlike and seems shocked at everything going on around her. I think her parents (mom)? will be caring for the lot of them. 

You are 100 per cent right about that.  Hit the nail on the head.  They both need to be taken care of.  I couldn’t put my finger on it, but now I see why Kilani sister is so attached and worries about her.  Their parents also.

YES! Exactly! I'm happy to say that I've never seen Mr. Coach start barking.
