’90 Day Fiancé’: David Defends Lana, Says Editing Made Her Look Bad

90 Day Fiancé fans have been painfully watching David Murphy relentlessly pursue his Ukrainian girlfriend, Lana. For many episodes, fans were convinced that Lana wasn’t a real person, and that David was getting catfished. But lo and behold, Lana is real.

David, however, hasn’t wavered in his hope for his relationship with Lana. He’s been posting photos of them together on Instagram in recent days. He’s shared their first photo, their first date, a photo of Lana eating a snack, and a picture of them spending time together a week after meeting in the flesh.

David says the ’90 Day Fiancé’ editing made Lana look bad

David no longer allows comments on his Instagram page, but when he did, fans were quick to tell him that Lana was scamming him. David told fans that they weren’t getting the whole picture and blamed the “editing” of the show.

“It’s painful to watch you. If you are acting obtuse on purpose, please have more self-respect. You come across as lonely and desperate, holding onto a dream that wants nothing to do with you,” wrote one fan, as reported by In Touch.

“I don’t control editing,” he responded.

Other ’90 Day Fiancé’ stars weigh in on David and Lana

Cortney Reardanz was interviewed by The Domenick Nati Show on May 15. When she was asked her take on David and Lana she said she believes “that really is Lana” but that TLC probably “paid her a lot of money to do the show.”

“Honestly, I don’t feel she speaks English because when she filmed, she was doing her whole segment in Russian. So I think she’s probably like confused. But I’m sure they paid her a lot of money to do the show. That’s why she probably finally agreed to do it,” she said.

90 Day Fiancé star Geoffrey Paschel was interviewed a few days later and was also asked about David and Lana.

“When I watch [David] on TV I think he’s a poor soul. I’m liking what he’s putting out now–’A lot of this stuff is edited. That’s not the way it went. She actually never said that.’ All this stuff. So it makes me think that Lana is in it for some reason. Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s the Lamborghini, I don’t know, but I believe that she’s totally in it. And I believe that we’ll see more of her,” he said.
