What Happened on TLC’s Early Premiere of Darcey & Stacey? | Brain Break
By Sarah J. Kings
Bleach blonde and botoxed, Darcey and Stacey Silva serve up a double-dose of twin drama and familial love in the premiere episode of TLC's newest binge-worthy series, Darcey & Stacey.
Appearing on all three seasons of TLC's 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, Darcey is more than just a fan-favorite of the show. With millions of YouTube views, and over 940k followers on Instagram, she is a sensation. Darcey always wears her heart on her sleeve and Christian Louboutin's on her feet, and twin sister Stacey always has her back— sort of. Yearning for the pair to find true happiness, people simply cannot stop watching.
TLC teased audiences with the official trailer release on July 21st, and an early premiere on TLC GO on August 9th. They will air the true premiere Sunday, August 16th, at 10 pm ET/PT.
The first episode, Everything Is About to Change, gives a close up of Stacey awaiting the arrival of her Albanian fiancé, Florian. The K-1 Visa has been approved, and as soon as Florian steps foot in the US, the two will have only 90 days to get married. Unfortunately for Stacey, this is not another episode of Say Yes to the Dress. Pictures have emerged on social media of Florian intertwined with a dark-haired mystery woman who told Darcey that "it's not [her] fault that Florian wants to taste [her] honey."
Despite a secret appearance from British boy, and ex-lover, Tom Brooks, the premiere episode hints at the arrival of a brand new love interest for Darcey. Her new beau, Russev is tall, tan, and handsome, and arrives from Bulgaria, with red roses in hand. A promising start.
After watching Darcey be bulldozed and gaslit by Jesse in Seasons 1 and 2 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, and then manipulated and lied to by Tom in Season 3, viewers can only hope that this international romance is different. Though, if the tears, fighting matches, and speculation of Russev's secret child are any indication, he may not be the man of Darcey's dreams either.
Whatever way things go, this spinoff is all about family! Viewers meet both Mommy and Daddy Silva, who shed light on the sister's complicated, competitive, and loving relationship. TLC fans will also see more of Darcey's charming daughters, Aniko and Aspen. Like most teens, they occasionally cringe at their mother's behavior, but overall these two sisters show the world what it means to love and support your mother. And while Darcey may not be super at picking partners, she is a super mom.
Darcey and Stacey are full-sass– false lash– Boss Ladies. But somewhere under the extensions and lip fillers, there is a pair of truly sweet, vulnerable women that you would wipe the tears from– or lend a tampon to– in the bathroom of a bar at 2AM. Whether you have loved them since day one or you are a total newbie, prepare for these twins to be your new best friends!
Put on your comfy sweats, pour the rosé, and get ready for Darcey & Stacey!
