’90 Day Fiancé’: Larissa Claims Eric Didn’t Pay For Plastic Surgery and TLC Invented Storyline
TLC 90 Day Fiancé and Larissa dos Santos Lima recently cut ties, but the former TLC star isn’t done talking about the reality TV show. During a recent Q&A, Larissa claimed that the franchise faked parts of the plastic surgery storyline. Keep reading to find out the details.
Relationship With Eric Nichols
Even though Colt and Larissa were divorced, TLC brought both of them back to appear on a spin-off, Happily Ever After. The Brazilian’s relationship with Eric Nichols was filmed, as well as Larissa’s desire to get plastic surgery.
Larissa asked her boyfriend to pay for the procedure, which cost $70,000. The couple came to an agreement, which included repayment with interest, special privileges, and everything in between.
90 Day Fiance: Plastic Surgery Storyline
On Instagram, 90 Day Fiancé cast member Larissa hosted a Q&A and one of the questions was about plastic surgery. The 90 Day Fiancé fan asked if Eric had been paid back yet. The former TLC personality replied,
“The surgery thing was created by the show to get people talking about [it].”
Larissa dos Santos Lima: ‘I Always Have Income’
Now, we know for a fact that Larissa had plastic surgery because of how different she looks. She clarified that Eric never paid for the surgery. That is when a follower asked who paid for it if it wasn’t Eric. Larissa responded,
“I paid myself. I always have an income. My Cameos was [sic] $100.”
Some people question if 90 Day Fiancé Larissa is being truthful because she never seems to have a regular job. She also tends to crash with others instead of getting her own place. So, maybe she doesn’t want to admit to not repaying Eric. Perhaps she wants to keep the person who paid for the plastic surgery a secret. Or she might have “alternative” ways of earning income. After all, there are a lot of ways for women to make money without a “real job.”
Reality TV Doesn’t Exist Without Drama
As for certain parts of the storyline being “faked,” that is possible. Reality TV requires drama to get people talking and keep ratings up. If people aren’t talking and not watching, then the show goes off the air. Networks and producers know that there is nothing interesting about watching people go to work, make dinner, pay bills, and watch TV until bedtime.
Sometimes, “creative suggestions” are given to reality stars to give a storyline (and the show) a boost. It’s not a new concept, but it does become a problem if too much of the show is being “scripted.” That takes it out of the “reality TV” genre and might not sit well with some viewers.
