‘90 Day Fiancé’: Fans Think Darcey Silva Looks ‘Unrecognizable’ In This Unearthed Old Reality TV Trailer

Darcey Silva might be best known today for her two foreign fiances on TLC's '90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.' But the 42-year-old mom of two had her sights on reality TV long ago, at least according to a throwback trailer she recently posted on Instagram.

Darcey Silva is returning for her fourth season of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in Feb. 2020. But the 90 Day Fiancé mainstay was involved in the entertainment industry long before she dated her Dutch ex Jesse Meester and British ex Tom Brooks on TLC.

The 42-year-old divorced mom of two, who recently moved to Hollywood, launched a production company called Eleventh Entertainment with her family around a decade ago. Darcey and her twin sister, Stacey Silva (seen on 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk), also run a clothing line called House of Eleven. 

It also looks like Darcey and Stacey hoped for reality TV notoriety before they ever met their foreign fiances. On Instagram, Darcey and Stacey recently showed off an old supertrailer they shopped to Hollywood execs for a reality show of their own. 90 Day Fiancé fans were shocked to learn about Darcey’s past, but they were even more shocked by just how different the twins looked a decade ago.

Darcey posted an old supertrailer for a potential reality show called ‘The Twin Life’

On her Instagram stories, Darcey tagged her sister and production company in a YouTube link to a supertrailer for a reality show pitch called The Twin Life. 

The 10-minute clip showcased Darcey and Stacey, then aspiring models and actors, living under one roof in Connecticut with their husbands (at the time) and children. “There’s always a double dose of drama in our world. Welcome to the Twin Life!” the trailer began.

The trailer featured Darcey’s ex-husband Frank Bollock, whom she described at the time as an “up-and-coming rapper.” (He since went into real estate and remarried.) Stacey, meanwhile, was married at the time to Goran Vasic, a Serbian soccer player. She’s since moved on to her Albanian fiance, Florian Sukaj.

In the clip, Darcey and Stacey also opened up about their brother Michael Silva, who tragically passed away in 1998 from cancer.

Fans were shocked at how different Darcey and her sister looked

90 Day Fiancé fans flocked to the comments to express their shock at how different Darcey and Stacey looked not long ago. Hair coloring and extensions, lip fillers, Botox, tummy tucks, breast implants, and liposuction have left both 90 Day Fiancé stars looking almost like different people.

“They both absolutely RUINED their looks with all the Botox and plastic surgery,” one 90 Day Fiancé fan wrote. “The only thing that hasn’t changed is their cringeworthy voices.”

Another YouTube critic commented under the trailer, “Ladies, getting plastic surgery doesn’t make you look young, it makes you look like you got plastic surgery.” A different YouTube commenter added, “7 years later they don’t even look like the same people.”

‘90 Day Fiancé’ viewers were also surprised by Darcey’s recent throwback pic

On Darcey’s Instagram, another recent throwback pic left many 90 Day Fiancé fans shocked at her transformation. “My old PILLOW TALK room! HOLLYWOOD Glam is coming back!” Darcey captioned an older snapshot of herself with dark hair.

Fans have criticized Darcey in the past for undergoing what they believe is too much plastic surgery, and this picture was no exception. Many commenters thought she should go back to her previous “natural” look.

“Old room, with your old lips,” one critic commented. “Darcey you are beautiful but please please stop with the injections fillers etc.” “Almost unrecognizable,” another Instagram user wrote incredulously.
