The 90 Day Fiance Tell All was an explosive one, and viewers are still reeling from the dramatics that occurred during the three-part reunion.

One couple that caused quite a stir was Stephanie Matto and Erika Owens. They faced off to discuss their explosive relationship.

The women had friends in their corners, and while one of Erika’s friends was the voice of reason, the same cannot be said for Stephanie’s friend Heather.

She was rude, angry, and constantly interjected herself while the other castmates tried to speak. It was frustrating to watch.

Viewers did not hold back on their opinions of Heather, and Stephanie later took to social media in defense of her friend.

Heather remained mum, despite the backlash, but now she is speaking out!

Heather says she looked like a bully on the Tell All

In a series of very lengthy notes, the former Tell All guest shared that she decided to take some time before responding to the backlash. She says that we only saw the parts of the reunion that TLC wanted us to see.

She exclaimed, “After the HOURS we filmed for them to show what was aired is a disgrace.”

Stephanie Matto’s friend also expressed that she knows how she came off on screen. “I’m aware how foolish I looked. Cringeworthy. I’m aware that I look like a bully and that it’s over the top and obnoxious.”

Heather says she was there to stir the pot

Heather posits that TLC took the most dramatic things that she said and used them for entertainment. “Instead they took a bunch of mashed up clips, jokes even (I’m Italian) and put them in an order they found entertaining. ”

She also shared that she felt bad after filming ended and says she apologized for her actions but also stands firm that her behavior was exactly what the network wanted. “I was there to stir the pot. Frankly, it would have been a bore to watch otherwise.”

Heather also addressed the death threats and cyberbullying that has come as a result of her appearance on the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Tell All, saying that was the reason that she went private on social media.

“I went private on Instagram after receiving death threats OVER A TV SHOW,” Heather wrote. “I may have looked like a crazy person, but do you know how INSANE that is?”
