’90 Day Fiancé’: Larissa Reveals Why She Prefers OnlyFans to TLC

90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Dos Santos Lima has had a great deal of upheaval in her life recently. In addition to divorcing Colt Johnson and moving on to her new man, Eric Nichols, Larissa was recently arrested by ICE for several hours and fired from TLC after she appeared on the adult webcam site CamSoda for a live body oil and lingerie show.

But, on the personal and professional front, Larissa’s life has been looking up in many ways, too.

After undergoing a number of cosmetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty, breast implants, a tummy tuck, and more, the (former) 90 Day Fiancé star and 34-year-old mom from Brazil launched a successful OnlyFans account and claims to have been raking in the cash with her NSFW content. She also moved to Colorado Springs, CO, with Eric, in order to start a new life outside of Las Vegas.

On October 2, Larissa took to her Instagram stories to answer 90 Day Fiancé fans’ questions about plastic surgery, her upcoming YouTube channel, OnlyFans, nude modeling, and reality TV.

Larissa said she greatly preferred OnlyFans to reality TV

Larissa answered several 90 Day Fiancé fans’ probing questions on her Instagram stories in a recent Q&A.

When it came to launching an OnlyFans account, Colt’s ex-wife made it clear that she had no shame about all about her new endeavor. In fact, Larissa told one curious fan that she felt reality TV was much more exploitative than nude and seminude modeling.

“Why would you sell yourself to make money? You’re beautiful and intelligent,” one viewer wanted to know.

Larissa responded thoughtfully, “To be on reality TV is to sell one’s self short. Think about it: A reality personality follows the orders of production, to portray the persona the producers want the audience to see and believe.”

Now, Larissa said, she was in charge of the narrative – which made her feel much more empowered.

“Well…now the producer, the boss, is Larissa,” she wrote.

What’s more, Larissa claimed she was pulling in a much higher income with OnlyFans than she ever had on TLC. One Instagram user asked if Larissa’s OnlyFans or her time on the show had made her more money.

According to Larissa, it was no contest. “OnlyFans, hands down,” she replied.

The ’90 Day Fiancé’ star revealed what she planned to discuss on YouTube

In addition to producing her own content on adult platforms like OnlyFans – which, Larissa said, would include more “censored and uncensored” content, and which she would use to DM fans directly – the former 90 Day Fiancé star also announced that she planned to launch a YouTube channel soon.

As for what her YouTube channel would cover, Larissa told her followers that she would discuss everything she hadn’t gotten a chance to talk about on the show.

“I believe that people are very curious to know my background, how was my K-1 visa, immigration status and family overall,” she hinted about her future content.

Larissa also told fans that she was happy with the results of her plastic surgery and would be covering her cosmetic procedure journey in-depth on YouTube. While Larissa’s makeover was completely “worth it,” she admitted that she still had scars from her many procedures. She also told one fan that her nose job was the most painful surgery she’d undergone so far.

Larissa gave advice to fans looking to change their own circumstances

While Larissa has undergone quite a bit of drama and turmoil in recent years, the former 90 Day Fiancé star has appeared to be on a personal journey toward deeper transformation.

One of Larissa’s followers asked her for advice on how to make big changes in their life, or to launch ventures and transformations of their own.

She advised the fan, “Don’t be afraid, do what you want as long [as it’s] legal and it won’t hurt you. Have the strength to be yourself or change whatever you want in your life. Start with a hot shower, put [on] your favorite lotion, comfy clothes, take some notes and embrace the world.”

“God doesn’t work for us, he works with us, ask him [for] guidance,” Larissa concluded.

Since her Q&A session, Larissa announced she would be releasing her first-ever YouTube video during the week of October 4, so fans could see a “different side of her” than what they’d glimpsed so far on TLC.
