90 Day Fiance recap show dubbed, 90 Day Fiance: HEA Strikes Back features cast members responding to the backlash they received in their seasons while divulging more details about their stories.
The recently aired episode gave added insights into the money-centric battle between Kalani Faagata and Asuelu Pulaa’s family, with the viewers learning more about Asuelu’s sister Tammy and why she was she was in a tizz during the season.
Tammy was shown in a bad light in 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? for urging Asuelu to send his family a lot of money he didn’t even have without answering Kalani’s question about how much she sent to Samoa. “Well, I do think that Tammy paid her dues. And she’s spent, what, she’s been here like 14 years? She’s been sending money home for a decade and a half, so I think she is done and ready to move it on to you [Asuelu],” Kalani said.
Kalani’s remarks suggest she has changed her views on her sister-in-law’s position and seemed to see Kalani’s perspective on the situation clearer. Kalani Faagata understands the Tammy didn’t want to be in trouble anymore, but that doesn’t change the fact that Asuelu Pulaa’s family in Samoa asked for money he did not have.
For that reason, Kalani did not give the amount the family asked, which led to a dramatic scene wherein Tammy had to be held back while screaming that she would beat up Kalani. This further led to friction between Kalani and Asuelu as they got into an argument about which of the two would win a fight.
Kalani and her family have repeatedly asked Tammy how much money she sent to Samoa, despite knowing that she wouldn’t be comfortable answering the question. Not only Tammy has been sending money to Samoa for a long time, but it also looks like Asuelu was aware of this based on his remark during 90 Day Fiance: HEA Stikes Back.
“My sisters do send a lot of money home too. They really help[ed] a lot too growing up,” he admitted. During the tell-all, tensions were still high between the parties involved, and it was unclear whether or not Kalani and Asuelu would still be a couple by the time the tell-all comes to an end.
Now that things aren’t as stressed as they were, the couple can admit that they at least understand why Tammy was so worked up throughout the season. Stay tuned in here for the latest 90 Day Fiance news.
