Debbie Aguero, 67, produced one of the most significant moments in season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way when she ended her romance with Oussama, 24, towards the tail-end of the season. Their wide age gap had caused quite a stir in the earlier part of the season. However, after the breakup, Debbie quickly became a fan-favorite due to her reaction to the split. Fans loved her funny comments and dedication to the split. Nonetheless, all that goodwill seems to have evaporated due to Debbie’s Tell-All comments.
Debbie’s 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Stint
Debbie and Ousamma never really gelled, and they played out one of the more boring storylines in the series. However, their season sparked into life when Oussama gave Debbie a make-or-break ultimatum. The Morrocan asked Debbie to get him a green card so that they could move to the US. Unfortunately for him, Debbie responded by ending their relationship. She also made sure there was no chance of reconciliation as she swiftly returned to America.
Debbie’s reaction earned her a lot of praise from 90 Day Fiancé fans, and ahead of the end-of-season Tell-All, many wanted to know the current status of the duo’s relationship. Unsurprisingly, Debbie’s relationship drama took center stage during part 1 of the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Tell-All. fans were happy to learn that the 67-year-old reality star had not been in contact with Oussama since she broke up with him.
Many of the castmates lined up to have a go at Oussama and criticized him for his dishonesty. Amidst all the drama, Debbie’s son stepped out for a cameo during the 90 Day Fiancé Tell-All. He blamed Ousamma for playing with his mom’s feelings and accused him of stalking her with incessant calls and texts. Debbie then closed that chapter by reiterating that there was no chance of a reconciliation between them. Everything seemed to be going well for Debbie at the Tell-All until she made some controversial comments during the show’s second part, which put her in the firing lines of fans.
Debbie Chooses Which “Abuse” to Acknowledge
The season 4 finale of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way aired right before part I of the Tell-All, and fans watched an explosive clash between Kris Foster and Jeymi. Kris abruptly ended the relationship due to arguments over her prolonged stay in the US and neglect of Jeymi. The American then entered her car to leave. However, Jeymi also entered the car to get some of her things.
This resulted in Kris shouting aggressively for Jeymi to leave before eventually shoving her out of the vehicle. Fans were stunned by what they had seen. Disappointment and outrage followed when no cast members addressed Kris’s abusive behavior toward Jeymi during the Tell-All. Since then, fans have criticized the cast mates online — especially Debbie, who appeared to take sides with Kris during the Tell-All.
More recently, Debbie jumped to Kris’ defense during an Instagram exchange with fans. She justified Kris’ terrible behavior by claiming she once suffered abuse as a child. Also, Debbie also all but confirmed the suspicions that Kris has a drug problem while sharing her comment. However, 90 Day Fiancé fans have called Debbie out over her Instagram comment. Fans accused her of being selective of the abuse she acknowledges.
Debbie noted Kris’s abusive childhood as an excuse for her 90 Day Fiancé behavior. However, she refused to mention Kris’ physical abuse towards Jeymi. On Reddit, one user Mizzlu78 started a thread to discuss the issue while sharing a screenshot of Debbie’s Instagram comment. Most users accused Debbie of trying to make Kris the victim when she was the aggressor. Fans empathized with Jeymi, questioning how she endured the reunion as Kris and Debbie gaslighted her almost into submission.
Debbie Calling Jeymi “A Predator” Was Hypocritical
Kris and Jeymi were one couple that should never have happened in the first place. While both displayed numerous red flags, the fanbase generally considers Kris to be the villain in the relationship. And that feeling was reinforced strongly after fans watched Kris physically abuse Jeymi during the season finale. However, the castmates didn’t seem to see things along the same line as the fans.
None of them brought up Kris’ abusive behavior during the Tell-All, as fans expected. After Kris and Jeymi extensively traded blame over the failure of their relationship, Debbie decided to wade into the impasse in a shocking way to fans. Debbie highlighted that Kris’ sufferings in the past had made her vulnerable to manipulation from Jeymi, whom she describes as a predator.
Fans were shocked by Debbie’s comments and quickly pointed out that her insistence on dating someone she was 43 years older made her more of a predator than Jeymi. On a Reddit post-episode discussion thread, 90 Day Fiancé fans let Debbie feel the total weight of their fury. Many fans criticized her antics during the Tell-All. While commenting, one user ItsMissIf, wrote,
“I’m shocked that Debbie had the audacity to call Jeymi a predator after dating a man young enough to be her grandson.”
Another group of users pointed out how she was using Oussama to secure a permanent move to Morocco due to the cheaper cost of living compared to the US. Additionally, many 90 Day Fiancé fans agreed that Debbie wasn’t a saint like they thought she was. However, they were glad she finally revealed her true personality, even though it came at the last minute. However, with a third part of the Tell-All still to come, Debbie still has a chance to redeem herself.
