Wonder Twin Powers, reactivate! Darcey and Stacey Silva, bold, blonde and funny moms in their 40s (above, left to right) – who first mesmerized us in 90 day fiancé: before 90 days – are back for Season 2 of their popular spin-off featuring more emotional turmoil, personal triumph, and plastic surgery.
“There’s going to be some frustration and sadness,” says Darcey, the dreamiest and most mournful of the couple, who is often protected by the more practical Stacey. “But there is hope. And love.”
Ah, my love. These ladies are not afraid of anything, but certainly not of being attracted to hot young men from Eastern Europe. Last season, Stacey married her six-year-old boyfriend, Albanian fitness influencer Florian Sukaj, despite fears that he was cheating on him. They want kids together (she has two teenage sons), but it’s not easy for 46-year-old Stacey. After having an ultrasound revealing an ovarian cyst, she says, “You can see other things that I am discovering with this fertility journey. It’s an emotional roller coaster.
Darcey still isn’t sure if she can trust her fiance, Bulgarian masseur / fitness model Georgi Rusev, for the finances (“I want to make sure I’m not taken advantage of”), so the twins meet her. ex to get a glimpse. “Stacey and I walked in with very positive expectations,” Darcey reports. “It was to hear how he was as a husband, plain and simple.”
For every intense and emotionally naked moment, there is a dizzying counterpoint, like when they went wild on a trip to Turkey for cosmetic procedures. Together, they benefit from breast reduction, a lip lift, a “Barbie nose” and new facets. Stacey teases her updated look, saying with classic Silva humor, “We’ve released the breast. That’s all I’m going to say. We released the breast!“
