Larissa explains why she wants to change her appearance on ’90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?’

On this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Larissa reveals a list of procedures she wants to have done to enhance her appearance. She tells Eric that she wants to get rhinoplasty, and reveals that she also wants a boob job to reignite their sex life and possibly get him to propose. 

“I want that Eric knows how excited I am to get my new boobs,” Larissa tells producers. “I think that this gonna make Eric be committed to me. And I hope that after my new boobs, Eric is going to ask my hand to marry him.”

But in a more recent episode, Larissa reveals that she wants to get liposuction as well. Eric says he realizes Larissa’s plastic surgery wishlist keeps growing but suggests he wants her to feel confident and happy.

In a confessional, Larissa opens up more about why she wants to change her appearance. And a lot of it has to do with shedding the emotional baggage of her relationship with Colt Johnson. 

“Larissa before the boob job is Larissa that was insecure, married with Colt, arrested many times,” she explains. “Finally, after two years, I’m going to get my boobs done. So I feel very happy that I’m gonna wake up and everything gonna change.”

Eric agreed to loan Larissa between $25,000 and $30,000 on ’90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?’

When Larissa mentions her desire to get a nose and boob job, she hints that she wants Eric to pay for it. “I don’t have my employment authorization, and you have some savings, so I would like that you help me,” she asked. 

Larissa tells him that it would cost between $25,000 and $30,000 for the surgeries. And when he asks if this is a loan or a handout, she says she just wants to borrow the money.

Eric agrees to loan Larissa the money only if they draw up a contract and if she agrees to pay interest on the loan. “I want there to be conditions,” he explains to producers.  “If I’m gonna help and it’s gonna be out of my bank book in any way whatsoever, how am I reassured that I have insurance?”

As seen on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Eric doesn’t live a lavish lifestyle. He has a modest car and home. And Larissa has called him cheap a few times, and she even suggested that he borrowed a phone from her because he didn’t have one.

So when fans saw him agree to loan Larissa such a huge amount of money, many began wondering how he could afford it. Well, in an effort to clear the air, Eric took to Instagram to share a snapshot of his bank account.

Happy/Sad to announce I SOLD THE NEW CAR‍♂️

A post shared by Eric Joseph Nichols (@ericjosephnichols) on

In the photo — which was reshared by 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates — Eric shares a receipt indicating he has over $350,000 in his bank account.  “Here’s a twist for everyone,” he captioned the now-deleted Instagram post, “don’t make assumptions.”

It’s unclear why Eric deleted the post, or if it is even real. In the comments section of Yates’ post, some fans speculated that the reality star had all this money because he just sold his house. Others suggested that he’s just been very good at saving. 

Either way, if the bank statement is indeed Eric’s, then it seems he does have substantial assets to work with. Fans may learn more about his situation as this season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? continues.
