’90 Day Fiancé’: Evelin Villegas and Tiffany Franco Feud In Wake of Tell-All Episode, Fans React
90 Day Fiancé is no stranger to drama between its cast members. And this is never truer than during the tell-all episodes of the show, where couples have an opportunity to comment on one another’s’ relationships in person. As recently as this summer, fans saw a feud between Colt Johnson and Pedro and Chantel.
Now, it seems as if Corey Rathgeber and Evelin Villegas have a bone to pick with Tiffany Franco and Ronald Smith. After making some serious digs at Franco’s parenting and Smith’s addiction, the couples are butting heads.
Evelin and Corey dig at Tiffany Franco’s parenting
90 Day Fiancé star Corey Rathgeber kicked things off by bringing up Tiffany Franco’s choice to bring her son Daniel to South Africa while she courted Ronald Smith. Rathgeber specifically brought up Smith’s previous struggles with addiction and expressed concern over Daniel’s future.
Villegas agreed with Rathgeber, adding, “I think addiction is something that is really hard and I think Daniel is so young to be involved. I just don’t want your son to go through that.”
Smith was visibly agitated and struggled to keep his cool as he defended himself. “And as far as I’m concerned, this is flesh and bone. Right? Everyone has mistakes,” replied Smith. “I rectify my mistakes. I stand up.”
Franco defended her decision as well. “You know, throwing my son into it is scary. People don’t always recover. I am jumping into it with faith. But you have to also keep in mind that it is easy to look into relationships and pinpoint what is wrong and what you wouldn’t do. But you have to look for it by yourself.”
Franco wasn’t finished there either. She shot back a classy burn at Villegas, suggesting Rathgeber had to take a leap of faith of his own. “What happened with you and Evelin, she tested your trust as well. He didn’t cheat on me. You know what I mean,” said Franco.
Tiffany Franco claps back
Despite Franco’s burn, it seems Villegas wasn’t finished trying to disparage her 90 Day Fiancé co-star. Villegas took to her Instagram story to share a text post that read, “A bad girlfriend but never a bad mother.”
First of all, calling yourself a bad girlfriend isn’t really a great look. Franco took notice of Villegas’ post, and had a couple comments of her own to make. She wrote back, “Hi, @evelin_ecuador I’m wondering what your story is meant to mean? That I’m a bad mother? Or are you saying that you’ll never be a bad mother? Clarify please and thanks.”
Franco then followed up with yet another classy burn. “I understand it’s frustrating what you’re going through with all the hate. But you can’t post things that sound a certain way not say it to me like a grown-up. Bad girlfriend, not a bad mother? Think mama before you speak,” wrote the 90 Day Fiancé star.
Fans react to the feud
Many fans were impressed with Franco’s controlled reactions to Villegas’ insults. One 90 Day Fiancé fan wrote on Instagram, “I had to say along with so many other supporters… QUEEN! I respect how in control of your words and emotions you are. You keep it classy baby.”
Another added, “The tell-all brought me here. Kudos to you two, the clap back was everything at the tell-all.”
One Instagram user posted a message expressing support of Franco and Smith. “You are so beautiful inside and out! Congratulations on your little beauty too! I’ve watched you on the show and my heart goes out to you. It is not easy to trust wholeheartedly so soon after someone breaks your trust, but your positivity and faith will prevail. Loving and supporting your husband is his best chance at success against addiction. Good luck to you and your family.”
