David and Sheila are creating history as they are the first-ever “hearing-impaired” couple on the 90 Day Fiance franchise. The former traveled all the way to the Philippines and is trying to adjust to the new dynamics there. However, within a few days of meeting Sheila in person, the couple got the shocking news of the latter’s mother’s death. Indeed, it was an overwhelming situation for the Filipino star. But fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw TLC using this incident as a ‘cliffhanger’ for their show! Many viewers called the network out for the same! But why?
90 Day Fiance: Viewers Call Out TLC For Featuring Sheila’s Mother’s Death As A Cliffhanger
90 Day Fiance has been featuring the storyline of David and Sheila these days, and fans are heavily invested in it. They love the uniqueness of this couple’s love story and are supporting them as well. However, viewers were literally taken aback when they saw the show using Sheila’s mother’s death as a ‘cliffhanger’ for their show. Recently, a Reddit thread started and called the network out for doing the same. Apparently, the Redditor claimed that the last week’s episode had a teaser with the title, “Guess who passed?.” In that, Sheila was documented crying alongside a casket!
Initially, 90 Day Fiance fans didn’t know that it was none other than Sheila’s mother! The thread stated that using this incident as a “plot” was “despicable.” The Redditor further claimed that TLC was actually exploiting such a “personal incident,” and it wasn’t something to use as a cliffhanger! Hence, it concluded that it was the network’s “new low.” Many viewers agreed and admitted that it wasn’t appropriate at all. Someone added, “God this is horrible. This should be private.” Another one wrote, “This is so tragic and exploitative.” A fan even claimed that this was “completely and totally wrong” as it was a clear invasion of privacy!
90 Day Fiance: Some Fans Wonder If Did Sheila Do This For Money & Camera?
Many 90 Day Fiance fans lost their calm when they saw TLC using Sheila’s mother’s death to create suspense. But some viewers had a slightly different opinion on this. Apparently, they feel that if David and Sheila had denied filming this incident, the network wouldn’t have forced them to. There have been many instances when TLC has respected the stars’ privacy and didn’t capture their private moments for the show. So viewers feel that there is a fair chance David and Sheila were actually fine with cameras being around them and filming the entire incident.
On the other hand, someone noted that Sheila must be in need of money. Apparently, her mother passed away because she slipped down the stairs of her old house. The show documented the condition of the celeb’s place of living, revealing her poor financial situation. Hence, it could be possible that Sheila wanted the paycheck and was ready to do anything for it. Through all of this, fans have been supporting her in this difficult time.
