Former 90 Day Fiancé franchise star Larissa Dos Santos Lima is blaming TLC’s “old-fashioned” attitudes for her recent firing.
“I believe the company wants to maintain old fashioned and rather odd values,” she responded to a fan question about the firing on Instagram Stories recently. “Off in what they do actually tolerate. The problem the company had with me, was they did not want me making more money than they could offer.”
According to multiple reports, “90 Day Fiance” couples make $1,000 per episode and $2,500 to appear on the tell-all, which would mean Larissa would earn around $15,000 per season. Meanwhile, Larissa reportedly made $100,000 for showing off her new Kylie Jenner-inspired body on adult sexy time site CamSoda.
“They want any drama to belong to them to film and air,” Larissa continued in her Instagram Stories Q&A. “I’m making more money in one month now, than the show paid me in an entire year. How can I keep up the drama to compete with that?”
Former teen idol and reality TV veteran Aaron Carter rushed to Larissa’s defense on Twitter following her firing.
Hey @90DayFiance you need to pay YOUR cast more MONEY 💰 You fired Larissa because she had to resort to other incomes PAY YOUR CAST MORE! Please. I know you have the money I’ve been in this industry for 24 years. God bless. Do what’s right.

In addition to her work with CamSoda, Larissa is making money through OnlyFans (subscriptions are $25 a month) and Cameo ($100 per request; $3.99 for a chat). Her boyfriend Eric Nichols is also on OnlyFans (subscriptions are $25 a month) and Cameo ($55 per request; $4.99 for a chat). Larissa is also open to being on another reality show, she shared with fans in an Instagram Q&A shared by @laricristinalimafans.
“I want the truth, I don’t want to hide,” she said about appearing on anther reality show in the future.
Larissa’s future could also include starting a family with Eric. In another Instagram Stories Q&A shared by In Touch Weekly, the mother-of-two was asked if she and her boyfriend were thinking of having a baby.
“Maybe one,” she responded.
Larissa has caught a lot of flak in the past for seemingly abandoning her two existing children in Brazil to pursue fame and fortune in the United States. Currently, her son Arry lives with his aunt, while her daughter Luane lives with her father.
