’90 Day Fiancé’: Rose Ditches Big Ed After Vasectomy Confession
90 Day Fiancé star Big Ed just got ghosted. The 54-year-old American flew to the Philippines to woo Rose, a 23-year-old he met online. However, it seems as though Ed arrived with a few preconceptions, a few secrets, and a narrow mind. Since he’s set down in Manila, the reality star has twice told Rose what to do with her body, as well as marveled at her poverty openly in front of her own parents. The last straw for Rose seems to be that Big Ed has been lying to her this whole time about his intention when it comes to children.
Big Ed was keeping secrets
When Big Ed first debuted on his season of 90 Day Fiancé, the reality star admitted both to producers and his friend that he’s been lying to Rose from the get-go.
Rose already has one son, Prince, and has told Ed that she’d like to have another child in the future, possibly a daughter. Ed, meanwhile, already has an adult daughter older than Rose, and has no interest in having additional children.
However, he neglected to tell this to Rose. At all. Instead, he told his friend, “Well, she already wants another child, she wants a girl. And I haven’t told her this, I don’t want to tell her this, but I want to get nipped.”
He told producers, “There’s another thing and that is I don’t want any more kids. I want to get a vasectomy but I don’t want to tell her.”
“I’m already going to take on a four-year-old kid, but to take on another child on top of that, it’s just overwhelming,” added Ed. “I’m at a place in my life where I’ve raised my daughter. She’s 29 and I’m 54. Other than Prince, I’m not ready to have more kids.”
Ed’s friend warned him that not telling Rose seemed unfair, but Ed brushed it off.
Big Ed insulted Rose over her breath, tells her to shave legs
To make matters worse, Big Ed has tried to tell Rose how to manage her body twice since he’s arrived in the Philippines.
The first time happened following an uncomfortable evening spent together in a hotel room. Big Ed gave Rose a perfunctory foot massage before asking to give her a kiss, something she clearly was not thrilled with. She asked him to kiss her on the cheek or forehead.
Later, Big Ed turned to Rose in bed and said, “Um, don’t be mad at me, but um, I noticed your legs were kind of like mine, they were hairy. Would you shave your legs?”
During another stint in a hotel room, Big Ed decided to gift Rose mouthwash and a toothbrush. He told her, “I got you a couple more things. This is going to be less romantic. So, this is mouthwash. And I got you a cute toothbrush because your breath is not pretty.”
Before storming off and calling Ed ugly, Rose explained to him that she brushes her teeth every day. She informed him that a chronic stomach ulcer was causing her bad breath.
‘90 Day Fiancé’ star wakes up to Rose gone
It seems as if the final straw was Ed’s lie by omission about wanting a vasectomy. Ed decided to finally admit his plans to Rose, and the next morning, she had left.
“Last night, I finally revealed to Rose that I want to have a vasectomy and I don’t want any more kids. And when I woke up this morning, she was gone,” he told producers. “She’s not answering my texts, and she’s not answering my phone calls.”
Ed added, “I’m really worried. She didn’t leave a message with the front desk. I looked all around the hotel. But she’s nowhere to be seen. I don’t know where she is. I’m really confused and I’m sad.”
