Fans of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days are wondering if "baby girl" Lisa will ever get Usman's mother's blessing for their marriage. It seems with two "no" answers, it seems they will have no choice but to sidestep the strict mother and marry behind her back if they want a shot at a future together.
The odd couple first met via social media after Lisa had finalized her divorce. The 30-year-old Nigerian rapper decided to pursue the 52-year-old American via her Facebook messages. The mother of one never thought the future love her life could be a scam just for a green card so the two kept speaking. After two years of social media flirting, the American flew to Nigeria only to complain every day of her trip. In recent times, Usman admitted that Lisa was his "opportunity" to come to the United States to further his music career. Fans were not surprised by the admission of guilt.
In the new episode of 90 Day Fiancé Before the 90 Days fans watched as Usman’s mother stood her ground in the wake of the shocking news that her son wanted to marry an older, white woman. This time Usman tried to convince his mother through the power of prayer and religion by having Lisa attend a mosque to pray as a family. The 52-year-old reality star did her best to follow along and to the surprise of fans was actually respectful. After the service, Usman tried again to see if he could get his mother's blessing, but it once again was a firm "no" from his mother.
Nigeria has many diverse cultures and traditions thanks to its many tribes. Usman’s mother has made it perfectly clear that if he asked permission to marry a Nigerian woman from their tribe, she would happily give her blessing. But Lisa is much older, white, and an American which raised alarm for his mother. She expressed her concerns that he would be turned into a slave once in the US. In Nigeria, it is also very important for the men to have their own children and frankly, many believe Lisa is too old to have any more babies. Even though Lisa may have attempted to try to give traditional gifts such as a goat, and worn a traditional Nigerian dress, and even went to the mosque, it seems nothing will make Usman's mom change her mind.
TLC viewers are hoping that Usman’s mother stands her ground but wonder if she would change her mind once Usman explains that he can make more money for the family once in the United States. The rapper has said more than once that he would do anything to go to America to push his music career. So, while Lisa may be in love Usman is in love with the idea of the American Dream and maybe, that will be the ticket to gain mommy's approval.
90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days airs Sunday at 8pm EST on TLC.
Joe Russo claims Netflix could be the streaming service to make the Community dream of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie come true. The show aired from 2009 to 2014 on NBC before moving to Yahoo! Screen for the final season after fans campaigned for its return. The former comedy’s complicated history means that anything is possible. Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty, based the show on his own experiences at community college. The Russo brothers produced the series and directed many episodes, before leaving in season four to head Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but returned with Harmon for the fifth and sixth seasons.
Community developed a devout cult following for its specific blend of comedy, pop culture references, meta-humor, and an all-star ensemble cast. Joel McHale played Jeff Winger, a disbarred lawyer who returns to community college in his Colorado town to earn a bachelor’s degree. He inadvertently forms a seven-person study group featuring activist Britta (Gillian Jacobs), pop-culture fan Abed (Danny Pudi), former house-wife Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown), Type-A Annie (Alison Brie), heart-of-gold Troy (Donald Glover), and the eldest member, millionaire Pierce (Chevy Chase). The series chronicled the antics of the group at Greendale Community College.
Collider reported Joe Russo, now more prominent in Hollywood for his contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stated: “We'd certainly be willing to do it. We love our Community family. That cast, we’re all still very close to all of them. It’d certainly be schedule-depending for us. But I believe there will be a Community movie, especially now that it’s doing so well on streaming. Someone like Netflix could step up and make that movie.” Russo also remarked that since the show is so contained, budgets could be kept low. The news comes nearly three weeks after the complete series joined the Netflix catalog and remained in the Top 10 for most of that time. Its presence on the colossal streaming service opens the opportunity to build the relationship between Community and Netflix.
Netflix is notorious for taking under-appreciated cult shows and offering new life through extended audience reach and in some cases, bringing the show back for new episodes. One of the most famous examples is Arrested Development, which aired on FOX from 2003-2006 before its cancellation. The streaming service billed the show as a “Netflix Semi-Original,” and released two additional seasons in 2013 and then again over 2018-2019. Other series include 1990s sitcom Full House, which came back as Fuller House, a Wet Hot American Summer prequel and sequel, new episodes of Queer Eye, and a four-episode miniseries, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. With the history of success behind reboots and revivals, Community seems like a smart investment for Netflix.
Community developed a mantra over it’s run: Six Seasons And A Movie. The fandom adopted the phrase as their mission and willed Yahoo! Screen to pick the series up for a sixth season. Word of mouth for the show is powerful; the Netflix numbers prove it. The Russo brothers have become more famous after four installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as has Dan Harmon after the success of Rick and Morty. Netflix would be wise to jump on Joe Russo’s idea and cash in on making a Community movie a reality.
There were glaring red flags about Mark Cuevas and Jessica Batten's future, even before they became engaged on Love Is Blind. Jessica loved that Mark was from Chicago, and she felt that he was her person quite early in the experience. Then suave Matt Barnett came on the scene. He won over three ladies' hearts, one of them Jessica. Eventually, Matt made the firm decision to see things through with Amber Pike.
Prior to Matt's decision, Jessica was torn between him and Mark. She even told Mark that she wasn't sure about their relationship, but when Matt said that he wanted to be with Amber, she was all in on exploring things with Mark. Mark asked Jessica to marry him and she said yes. However, their problems became even bigger once they left the pods.
Jessica showed signs of being more attracted to Matt than Mark. She also got drunk and had an awkward conversation with Matt, which basically showed that she thought he should have picked her over Amber. Jessica also consistently made comments about the age gap between Mark and her. It was clear to everyone watching Love is Blind that things weren't going well for Mark and Jessica's romance and future.
Mark clearly felt the same. On one of the Love is Blind episodes, he tried to reignite their initial spark by recreating the pod atmosphere. He had them talking while being separated by a well. Screenrant recently spoke to Mark and got some insight into why he decided to have a date similar to the pod dates.
I don't know if you could tell by watching the show, but I kind of wear my heart on my sleeve. On Reveal day, that was all 100% me.I was free; I felt like I won. We did it, we made it, and that's the woman that I fell in love with. For me, that was my attempt of saying, 'Hey, we can get back to that.'
I think that - because that experience is very intense, and it can be very emotionally draining - let's try to get to that point again. Remember why we were doing this in the first place. So, when I brought up that idea, it was my way of saying, 'Hey, I want to make this work.'
We also asked Mark if he suspected that Jessica wasn't going to go through with the wedding and had doubts about their relationship. He had this to say:
Again, it was a very tough experience. There was a lot of ups and downs from, I would say, both of us being like, 'We don't know...' Honestly, we didn't even know what the other person was going to say until the very end. For me, I just stuck to my truth. I knew that once I saw her walking down the aisle, I was like, 'I fell in love with this woman.' And that's what I saw when I saw her in a white wedding dress with my family present. You know, I promised myself from the beginning that I was going to be myself no matter what.
We have more of our exclusive interview with Mark from Love is Blind coming soon, so make sure to follow Screenrant for more.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons stalk market tycoons can will be glad to know that there's now a turnip price calculator, and players are reporting that it actually works quite well. The Animal Crossing playerbase has become obsessed with how to best ride out their islands' weekly erratic turnip rollercoasters, and this newest online tool aims to take much of the guesswork out of the equation.
The oscillating stalk market in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, masterminded by the insanely adorable piglet Daisy Mae, is just one of the many ways that players are using the island life simulator to live vicariously and escape the confines of their self-isolation. In addition to the weddings, memorials, and real-life friend and family hangouts for which people are turning to the game, players are also recreating some darker realities in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with some charging exorbitant fees in bells, items, and characters in exchange for the mere opportunity to sell turnips at their islands' higher prices.
Now, those turnip sharks may be getting undercut by the advent of the all-new Animal Crossing: New Horizons Turnip Calculator. Organizing players' weekly selling prices into an informative, easy-to-read graph, the tool is meant for use by savvy marketeers looking to sell high, and players are reporting that it's been impressively accurate for them so far. Online fan network NookNet announced the tool yesterday on Twitter, adding it to their site's existing island tune creator and custom design portal.
The highly demanded turnip price calculator joins a steadily growing suite of external applications that players can use to enhance their Animal Crossing experience. At the time of writing, there's already an island name generator for indecisive players, a map layout planner that helps detail-oriented players build their perfect tropical paradise, and an entire player-driven shopping network that that deals in goods and even villagers. The sky appears to be the limit when an online game has a fanbase as energized and creative as Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the same may now be true for players' unlocked turnip sale price potential.
With so many players going above and beyond to help bring the game's community together and assist one another in having the best Animal Crossing: New Horizons experiences possible, who knows how much more deeply fans would be investing themselves if Nintendo would bring the game's overly complex and frustrating local and online multiplayer functions into the 21st century.
