‘90 Day Fiancé’: Big Ed Brown and Rose Vega’s Reunion Was Completely Different Than Anyone Expected
Big Ed Brown and Rose Vega became one of the most talked-about couples on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 4. They went from claiming to love each other to bashing one another at the reunion special and after filming. The two recently reunited for an episode of 90 Day Fiancé Bares All. Have their feelings for one another changed?
Big Ed Brown and Rose Vega’s relationship
When Brown and Vega got together, it caused big problems for Brown. His daughter stopped talking to him because she didn’t agree with the relationship. Brown risked a lot to be with Vega yet he wasn’t completely honest with her.
“So, I wasn’t completely honest with Rose about [my height] and a couple of other things,” Brown told Entertainment Tonight once the show started airing. “It’s never a good idea to lie. You have to be honest and I’m learning that even if you have strong feelings for someone, it’s better to get it out in the open. If not, it’s gonna come back and bite you.”
Brown’s lies caused tension in his and Vega’s relationship. It also didn’t help matters that he asked her to take an STD test, told her her breath stunk, and asked her to shave her legs.
Big Ed and Rose Vega’s breakup
Eventually, things ended between Vega and Brown after Brown admitted that he did not want children.
“I should have been more truthful,” Brown told Vega on the show. “I apologize. I should’ve said I don’t want more kids, but I wanted to get to know you. I wanted [you] to get to know me to make sure we are compatible.”
Throughout the relationship, Vega had been very honest with Brown about wanting kids. So, finding out that he had been lying to her was the last straw.
“I know who [you are]. I think,” Vega said to him. “First [you] lied to me about [your] height. Right? Then, you want to give me an STD test right? And about mouthwash, why you tell me? You know I [am] sick, I have [an] ulcer.
“I’m disappointed because you always embarrassed me,” she continued. “I think [you] don’t love me. I’m done.”
The blow-up at the first reunion
At the Tell-All reunion special, Brown and Vega revealed that things had gotten pretty ugly between them.
“I was ready to go back until I went on Facebook and I see a picture of her holding a watch….This is her and her girlfriend,” Brown said, revealing that Vega was dating someone new.
Brown later claimed that after Vega and her girlfriend broke up, she tried to get back with him. Vega denied the claims and said that she wanted absolutely nothing to do with Brown.
Are Rose and Big Ed on good terms now?
Brown and Vega recently reunited for an episode of Bares All. During the episode, it seemed like the relationship between the two had changed and was no longer filled with so much animosity.
“You’ve helped me in so many ways, I’m very happy,” Brown told Vega. “I’m growing, I still have a lot to learn, but you admired me and you touched my heart, even though it didn’t work out.”
Vega also admitted that though the relationship didn’t last, she doesn’t regret dating Brown.
“I don’t regret it because first of all, it already happened,” she said. “I accept everything, because that’s the past and it became part of my life. And also, for me to regret it, for what? For what purpose? Because I moved on already.”
