Kimberly’s mom, Sally, was featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 5, giving her daughter relationship advice. She was immediately a fan favorite because of her brutal honesty and sense of humor.

During the first episode, Kim reveals that she will be leaving her mom to go to Tanzania to see Usman’ Sojaboy’ Umar for the first time since she’s become her mom’s full-time caretaker.

Sally tells her daughter, “I’m going to miss you a lot, but I just don’t want you to be hurt. I just hope this all is good for you. Because if it isn’t, I’ll go… I’ll find him, and I’ll beat the crap out of him.”

She advised her daughter not to be the “perfect woman” for Usman and be herself. She told her that she wanted her daughter to “stay true to herself.”
