Relations with in-laws are always dicey, but throw racism into the mix and you got yourself a recipe for disaster.
In TheWrap‘s exclusive preview from Sunday night’s episode of “90 Day Fiancé,” Danny Friesmuth is forced to tell his fiancée, Amy Africa, that his father is a good-old fashioned bigot.
“My dad has never experienced interracial relationships before,” Frieshmuth tells Africa. “I know he has concerns about your race.”
The reality show, which airs on TLC, follows six couples made up of Americans who brought their foreign-born girlfriends or boyfriends to the United States on a K-1 visa. But there’s a catch: The couple must get married in 90 days. If they don’t, the foreign-born fiancé or fiancée risks getting shipped back home.
Growing up in Cape Town, South Africa, Amy knows a thing or two about racism.
“In South Africa there’s been a long history of segregation. I really don’t know what it’s going to be like being with him in person. I’m quite nervous about that,” she says about meeting her potential father-in-law.
But it’s Frieshmuth’s response that may just have fans going, “aww.”
You can watch the dramatic exchange in the exclusive video above.
“90 Day Fiancé” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
