During this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days, Stephanie has flown from Yonkers, New York to see her girlfriend, Erika, who is on the other side of the world in Australia. The two have had frequent arguments in what feels like every single day since she got there. What set Stephanie off the most is that Erika still has a dating app on her phone but Erika’s excuse is that she using that strictly for networking opportunities.
In the latest episode, Stephanie also has concerns after she went to a small party with Erika and her friends. She realized that one of the men there slept with Erika often. From this point, Stephanie’s trust issues continue to grow as she left the party and called her loved ones back home to tell them how things aren’t going too well during this trip. In the upcoming episode which premieres on TLC on Sunday at 8pm, there seems to be more confusion in their relationship.
According to HollywoodLife, Erika decides to take Stephanie to go throw boomerangs as this is a common fun activity of Australian culture. She takes Stephanie to a man named Roy who is from the Northern Flinders Rangers.
“Today I’m taking steps to go and see that a guy that makes some boomerangs because I really want to show her a little bit of Australian culture,” Erika says. “And what American doesn’t want to throw a boomerang when they come to Australia?
The two different types of boomerangs that Roy shows Erika and Stephanie are come-back and hunting. Stephanie offers to throw one and during her conversation with Roy, the subject is brought up of what brought Stephanie to a place like Port Augusta. She explained how she just wanted to go see Erika. Roy asks if Erika is her friend and Stephanie then replied that she’s a “special friend.” When Stephanie was on camera explaining what she meant by that, she added that she doesn’t know what Roy’s beliefs are.
“I don’t really know what his beliefs are. I really just don’t want to get into a really weird discussion with this man,” explained Stephanie. “I kind of just want to focus on the tasks at hand.”
When Erika initially heard the “special friend” comment, she simply laughed at it. It’s hard to tell if this was to just shrug this off or if she simply didn’t care about the comment. It’s sad that we are still in a world where people may still be judged on the type of person they decided to date. Sexual preference shouldn’t matter. We will see how everything unfolds on April 26.
