’90 Day Fiancé’: Deavan Clegg’s Mom Is ‘Ungrateful’ and ‘Embarrassing,’ According to Horrified Fans

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way is one of the hugely popular spinoffs of the original 90 Day Fiancé. Each season, fans are introduced to a whole new cast of characters, as well as their family and friends.

This season, drama reached a fever pitch with the furthering of Deavan Clegg‘s story, a model who was featured in Season 1. While Clegg has made headlines many times over the past few weeks, in recent days, it is her mother that has fans up in arms.

According to a recent Reddit thread, Clegg’s mother might actually be one of the most embarrassing people ever to appear on the reality show.

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way first premiered in early 2019, and became an immediate hit with viewers. The show differs quite a bit from the original in that it features couples who have already decided to try to make things work. In each season of the show, the American half of the featured couple makes the move to marry their foreign partner and relocate permanently to their partner’s home country.

However, even if the featured couples want to make their love last, they always encounter obstacles. From difficult in-laws to cultural differences, the couples discover that the course of love doesn’t always run true and that things aren’t always as easy as they seem. The second season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way premiered in June 2020, and featured a return couple from the first season — Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee.

Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee were first introduced to viewers in the first season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. The couple had a controversial relationship from the start, and got pregnant after their first intimate encounter, as detailed in Season 1. They got engaged and went on to tie the knot, but they had a number of issues.

Trust issues developed between the pair when Clegg learned that Lee has a criminal record and had problems handling the logistical issues that stemmed from combining their households.

The current season reveals that the couple are still working on making their home life functional, even though Clegg decided to move to South Korea to live with Lee permanently. Unfortunately, when Lee failed to step up to the plate and provide a stable residence for his family, Clegg moved back to the United States. 

Fans are horrified by Deavan Clegg’s mom

On the most recent episode of the reality show, Deavan Clegg makes a dramatic return to South Korea, with her mother in tow. Clegg’s mother was far from impressed with what the two saw there, and even less so with Lee. The older woman stated that at the age of thirty, Lee should have a stable home situation and a “huge savings account.”

While many fans took issue with her statements, as well as her assessment of Lee, a more recent Reddit thread reveals that, in fact, most fans are upset with her behavior in general. 

In the thread, fans posted about Deavan Clegg’s “horrible” mother, stating that “she seems like one of those people who is really aggressive as a response to her own insecurities.”

Another poster claimed that the woman acted like “typical American trash,” and that her constant swearing was offensive to not only the viewers, but to everyone else featured in the show.

As the show moves forward, and as Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee continue to work out their issues, it seems as though showrunners might want to find a more sympathetic way to feature Clegg’s problematic mother.
