Twins and 90 Day Fiancé fixtures Darcey and Stacey Silva are thrilled to finally be getting a spin-off show of their very own. However, not everyone is excited to watch the upcoming summer spin-off— especially not Darcey’s ex Jesse Meester…and a bunch of the “90 Day Fiance” franchise fans!
Entertainment Weekly confirmed on Monday that the twins’ spin-off, called Darcey & Stacey, will debut this summer on TLC and give viewers a closer looks at the Silva twins’ lives and loves.
Appearing alongside Darcey and Stacey will be Darcey’s daughters Aniko and Aspen, as well as the twins’ parents, Mike and Nancy.
As fans of the show may recall, Darcey appeared on Season 1 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days with her then-boyfriend Jesse. The couple returned for Season 2 and Darcey returned for Season 3 and Season 4 with a new partner, Tom Brooks. (That relationship has since ended, though.) Both Darcey and Stacey appear together on 90 Day Fiancé: Pillow Talk.
“I’m really excited about the news show and very grateful to TLC,” Darcey told EW. “I’ve had a long journey with relationships and now that I’ve finally concluded my Jesse and Tom stories, I am finally excited about what the future holds. I am at a stage in my life where I am happy with my life and I’m staying strong with me and my daughters and family. And I’m so excited to dive deeper into our family life on the new show, past, present and future.”
Speaking of Jesse, he’s not exactly excited to see his ex get a show of her very own. In an Instagram comment left on the official “90 Day Fiance” Instagram page’s post announcing the twins’ show, Jesse gave his thoughts on Darcey being “rewarded” with her own show, despite her “lying and manipulating.”
(Jesse’s comment has since been deleted, but was screenshot by the “90 Day Fiance”-themed Instagram account @tote_the_memes before it was scrubbed.)

What do you guys think? Agree with Jesse? Personally I didn’t know Darcey owed Jesse money. . . . #90dayfiance #memes #90day #90dayfiancebeforethe90days #90dayfiancememes #90days #tlc #tlcmemes #lol #meme #shitpost #funny #90dayfiancé #drama #relationships #90dayfiancewhatnow #viral #trashtv #90dayfiancehappilyeverafter #petty #entertainment #90dayfiancetheotherway #silvatwins #toxicrelationships #toxic
“She only had to use, abuse and manipulate five guys to get what she wanted all along from the network,” Jesse wrote. “Ethics, TLC? When lying and manipulating gets rewarded I will speak up. She still owes me money, too, maybe she can finally pay me back now. Been a sugar daddy for her for far too long so she could get help.”
He then tagged Tom and a guy named Michael, whom Darcey dated late last year and into 2020.
As for Darcey’s engaged sister, Stacey, she will introduce fans to her Albanian fiancé, Florian Sukaj, who will be residing in Connecticut while the couple waits to tie the knot within 90 days of his arrival.
“Right now, [Florian] and I are really excited to see what the future holds for us,” she told EW. “I can confirm that his visa has been approved.”
Fortunately, unlike Darcey’s previous love interests, Florian has earned his future sister-in-law’s approval.
“I’ve known Florian for some time now and I’m happy for Stacey,” Darcey said. “All that matters to me is that she’s happy in the end … .”
While some “90 Day Fiance” fans expressed their excitement about the new spin-off in the comment section of the official Instagram announcement on Monday, others were not thrilled that the twins were chosen to have their own show.
“Only people tuning in is to watch the train wrecks unfold while you two middle aged women chase young guys around the world,” one person wrote. “But shame on TLC for exploiting this…”
“Haven’t we suffered enough in 2020?” another commented.
“One pandemic at a time!” another joked.
“Oh hell nooooo,” a person wrote in the comments. “TLC you have stooped to new lows big time pass.”
‘Darcey & Stacey’ premieres August 16 at 10 p.m. on TLC.
