Just when 90 Day Fiance fans thought they’d seen the last of Angela Deem and Micheal Ilesanmi, the franchise’s most tumultuous couple has made their return.

We’re currently eight episodes into Season 8 of Happily Ever After?, and Angela, 58, and Michael, 35, have yet to appear in a single episode, although they were featured in preview clips.

This has led 90 Day Fiance viewers to believe that perhaps the couple had gotten fired, or at least Angela.

She has come under intense scrutiny since joining the 90 Day Fiance world, and fans of the franchise have called for her to be fired on multiple occasions.

Amid all of the chatter online, we’ve discovered that Angela and her estranged husband, Michael, will continue to share their international love story with 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Viewers this season, after all. has included teasers for two upcoming episodes (as seen in the screenshots below) to air on May 19 and May 26.

Michael is in America, but his whereabouts are unclear

We know off camera that Michael’s visa was approved, and the Nigerian native finally made it to the U.S. after years of waiting.

However, his time in the States has been anything but a dream come true for Michael.

In February 2024, Michael was reported missing in Angela’s home state of Georgia.

The news came to light when Angela appeared in a TikTok video with a reality TV blogger, claiming that her husband was nowhere to be found and that the police were involved.

At the time of his disappearance, Michael had no belongings with him other than the “clothes on his back.”

Just two days later, Michael was found safe and sound but chose not to return to the home he and Angela shared because, as he told authorities, he “was in fear of his life.”

It’s unclear where Michael has been staying amid his and Angela’s marital woes.

Michael returns to social media and finds support from 90 Day Fiance fans

Months after all of the drama went down, Michael made a surprising return to Instagram, appearing in a set of selfies without his wedding band on his left ring finger.

Michael received an outpouring of support from 90 Day Fiance fans in the comments section of the post.

In the caption of his post, Michael proclaimed, “You either get bitter or you get better. It’s that simple.”

“You either take what has hurt you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate. It belongs to you.”

Season 8 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs on Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.

Don’t miss Angela Deem or any of her pathetic story lines. She is an embarrassment. Her disgusting behavior is nowhere near an example of an average, mature, American woman looking for companionship. Angela should have used some of her monies from 90 Days for some serious counseling.
