90 Day Fiancé fans met Big Ed Brown on the fourth season of Before the 90 Days. We watched him try to make things work with his long-distance girlfriend, Rose Vega. Eventually, after a heated breakup, the couple went their separate ways. Though Big Ed certainly has his own fan base, many of his Before the 90 Days castmates are not on the list.
’90 Day Fiancé’ star Blake Abelard on Big Ed Brown
Blake Abelard was interviewed by The Domenick Nati Show on June 29 and he was asked his thoughts on Ed.
“I don’t know what’s going on with this whole Big Ed thing. How I feel about the situation? That’s jacked up. Like, that’s messed up, if it’s true. But if it is true, that’s f*cked up, man,” said Blake.
Nati mentioned that some fans have been uncomfortable with the Instagram Lives Ed has been doing. Sometimes, the reality star involves seemingly young-looking girls.
“See, that does get me weird. Like, the Lives, that is weird. That part is a little bit weird,” responded Blake.
“It’s weird that Big Ed puts young girls on his Live,” agreed Nati.
“Yeah, I’m not gonna front about that. That, I’ll say, is weird. Convo after convo, back to back,” said Blake.
Cortney Reardanz also thinks Big Ed is ‘inappropriate’
Blake isn’t the only 90 Day Fiancé star who finds Ed’s behavior outside of the show inappropriate. Franchise star Cortney Reardanz was interviewed by The Domenick Nati Show in May and she commented on the photos that adorn Ed’s bedroom.
“He has like photos of all of his clients on his bedroom walls. It’s like lingerie photos. I felt that was super inappropriate. I would be uncomfortable if I was one of the models and I didn’t know my photographer was posting my lingerie pictures in his bedroom,” said Cortney.
Additionally, Cortney doesn’t like the way Ed treated Rose while filming–several of his castmates feel the same way.
“How he talked to Rose. He went to a third world country and then he acted like, ‘Ew, you’re poor,’ basically. I felt so bad for her and her family. They opened their home to him and I feel like he just kind of exploited them. ‘Ew, they sleep on the floor.’ ‘Ew, they don’t have electricity.’ Like, ‘Ew, this is how they shower.’ ‘Ew, there’s a rat.’ He has the nerve to be like, ‘I don’t think she wants to live here. She wants to go to the US or she wants money,’” she said.
During the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days “Tell-All,” Ed said that he did love Rose and that he never meant to hurt her. Rose, however, made it clear she wants nothing to do with Ed moving forward.
