The ’90 Day Fiancé’ stars are in Moldova for their wedding this season

Andrei and Elizabeth have been planning their second wedding for quite some time. The 90 Day Fiancé stars want to get married again in Moldova so that Andre’s family can be a part of the celebration. Andrei also wants to take his daughter Eleanor back home so she can finally meet her grandparents.

This season,  the couple travels to Moldova where they are staying with Andrei’s parents. But soon after they arrive and start planning the wedding, tensions begin to build.

Elizabeth — whose family has been judgemental about both Andrei and this Moldovan wedding — is worried about keeping her family comfortable. And because Andrei has already had beef with her family, he gets snippy and sarcastic everytime she mentions them.

Andrei and Elizabeth get into in argument over the venue on ’90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After’

On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, Elizabeth and Andrei go to see a venue that Elizabeth ends up hating. She thinks it looks tacky and is worried her family won’t like the food. But when she points it out to Andrei, he doesn’t want to hear it. 

“Andrei, I’m trying my best to be nice to you right now, but you’re making it difficult for me,” she tells him during a confessional. “You’re not very patient, and it’s really frustrating.”

Then just as she starts to explain what’s going on with the venue, Andrei interrupts her. Elizabeth yells at him to let her speak, but he responds with an even harsher response. 

“You’re f*cking annoying,” Andrei yells. “Shut up. Don’t f*cking tell me how to do this now.”

Elizabeth defends Andrei’s behavior

After seeing the way Andrei snapped at Elizabeth on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After, fans called him out for being rude and chauvinistic. But in a recent interview with ET, Elizabeth defended Andrei and said she understands why he seems so harsh on the show. 

“It may come across as super rude, but to me, I understand him and where he’s coming from, and I know that it’s not a jab at me or intentionally being rude to me,” Elizabeth explained. “I think that’s just his voice and his accent and him being a man, and you throw that all together and it comes off rude. I don’t take it that way.”

“Watching it back I can see what they (fans)  would see watching it,” she added. “I can understand what they’re saying, but again, I know my husband and I know that he wouldn’t purposely try to put me down. I think he is just such a strong person and he comes off really mean, but to me, I understand what he’s saying.”

In the interview, Andrei also defended his actions. Noting how sweet Elizabeth is, he said the series doesn’t show how harsh she can be with him. 

“Sometimes she does it to me, but it’s not shown,” Andrei said. “They put me in, you know, a bad light, but this actually happens, she does it too because she’s very strong, she’s very stubborn.”

“I think she’s a sweetheart,” he added. “I think she’s loving, but she can show her teeth. She can be aggressive to me, sometimes. It happens, I’m handling it. I thank her, I guess.”
