’90 Day Fiancé’: Do Emily and Sasha Regret Going On the Show? She Spills the Details On Instagram
Emily Larina and Sasha Larin of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé might have had a somewhat rocky start to their time in the U.S. together, but they are still happily married and living with their baby David after leaving Sasha’s home country of Russia.
While 90 Day Fiancé fans were skeptical about their relationship because of Sasha’s two previous divorces and two children back in Russia, Emily frequently defends their relationship on social media.
Recently, she revealed behind-the-scenes details about their time on 90 Day Fiancé Season 7. On an Instagram Q&A with fans, Emily spilled plenty of details about her new career, her relationship with her Russian in-laws, whether she and Sasha plan on appearing on any 90 Day Fiancé spinoffs, and whether they regret signing up for the reality show.
Emily answered fan questions about her move back to the U.S. and her time on ‘90 Day Fiancé’
In her Instagram stories, Emily asked fans to ask her (almost) anything.
Now that Emily and Sasha are living in the U.S. with their one-year-old son, she supports her family “full-time” financially.
One fan asked why the former teacher switched careers. The 29-year-old first-time mom responded, “Teachers are rock stars. It’s a huge workload for low pay. I wanted to change careers because I was constantly taking work home with me. I wanted to put that energy into spending time with my son.”
“What do you do for work now instead of education?” another fan asked. Emily replied, “I work in HR! A lot of skills [I] learned [in] teaching transferred well. Especially when doing new hire orientations.”
She also said she misses Russia “every day” and gets along with her in-laws well. The 90 Day Fiancé star revealed she wished her mother- and father-in-law had had more scenes on the show. She also showed a photo of Sasha with his brother, who was never shown on TV. “We shot a scene with him in it, but it was cut,” Emily revealed. “He’s in the Russian navy now!”
Of social media trolls and negative opinions bothering her, the 90 Day Fiancé star said it was all good on her end. “It’s the loneliest people who have the most negative opinions,” she said.
The ‘90 Day Fiancé’ star said one thing about her reality TV appearances made it all worth it
When it came to the decision to appear on 90 Day Fiancé, Emily said it mostly came down to finances.
“What made you want to apply to be on the show?” a fan asked. Emily replied frankly, “Seriously it helped a lot while transitioning to the USA,” with a money GIF for good measure. She added that she and Sasha are taking steps to keep themselves financially secure in the future: “Also, we plan on putting what we haven’t used in a savings account for future immigration fees.”
Another 90 Day Fiancé fan asked Emily to get real about her time on the show. “Do you regret being [on] the show?” they asked.
“No,” she responded. “It helped us out during a transitional period in our life, and I have a lot of cute professional footage of my son.”
Emily and Sasha likely won’t appear on ‘Pillow Talk’ or other spinoffs
Emily and Sasha might not regret appearing on the show, but it looks like we might not see much more of them on TLC.
A few 90 Day Fiancé fans asked if the couple might appear on one of the many spinoffs, like Happily Ever After or Pillow Talk.
“Do you want to keep doing the show? Maybe a Happily Ever After?” one viewer asked.
“Ehhhhh….” Emily responded noncommittally.
In her response to a similar question about Pillow Talk, though, the 90 Day Fiancé star spilled more tea.
“Ehhh it would be hard for me to judge,” the new mom answered honestly, adding that hearing what her castmates had to say about her relationship had hurt her feelings. “Even though I know they are probably pushed to say certain things, it still stings sometimes. Especially when someone talks about birth control when you say you’re expecting a child who was very much wanted. I’m all for just letting people live their lives.”
