VIDEOS Before the 90 Days’ Darcey Silva reality show pilot for ‘The Twin Life’

Before the 90 Days Darcey Silva reality show

90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days‘ Darcey Silva seemed to regret her decision to share her personal life for the TLC cameras, but as we revealed previously, the experience is nothing new for her. She and her twin sister Stacey Silva filmed a pilot for a reality show titled The Twin Life back in 2010, which also featured their (now ex) husbands and (much younger) children. Thanks to the magic of the internet, you can still watch most of the pilot — and it is some twincredibly awesome throwback gold!

I will start off with just the intro clip, which is essentially the title sequence. It includes an introduction to the entire family, including Darcey’s ex husband Frank, as well as the show’s blinged-out logo and theme song:

I’m speechless. :)

Here’s how Darcey and Stacey described their lives in the voice over — I didn’t try to figure out which voice was which:

I’m Darcey. And I’m Stacey. We’re two busy moms and wives dreaming of making it in showbiz. Oh, and did I mention we’re twins? And we live under one roof? There’s always a double dose of drama in our world! Welcome to The Twin Life!

These screen caps speak more than a thousand words a piece:

In addition to the brief title intro, there is also a 10+ minute super trailer. In what amounts to a short pilot episode, viewers are given a tour of Silvatropolis and are introduced to the families, including the Silva hubbies:

Darcey’s husband, and father of her children, is an “up-and-coming rapper” named Frank, and we get to see him spitting a few rhymes in the video — including his part part of The Twin Life theme song.

Frank’s full name is Frank Bollok, but the only song I could find by him was under the name “Ruse.” It’s titled “Primal Ways” and it comes with a music video:

Judging from his Facebook page, it doesn’t appear that Frank is still pursuing his rap music career. Instead, he got a job in sales at a real estate brokerage firm before becoming co-owner of a seven-room vacation lodge in the Catskill Mountains. He has been in a relationship with another woman for years, and they both seem to get along GREAT with his kids.

Interestingly, Darcey’s sister Stacey had a 90 Day Fiance-ish experience of her own. As it reveals in the video above, she married Serbian soccer player Goran Vasic. She says that when they first met, he couldn’t even speak English. (Jesse has him beat in that regard.)

Goran and Stacey also split not long after The Twin Life pilot was filmed, and he now has another wife and they too seem to get along great with each other and his children.

Who knows, perhaps after her stint on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days (and then regular 90 Day Fiance maybe?), Darcey and Stacey might have the opportunity to bring back The Twin Life on TLC! πŸ˜‰

Meanwhile, you can keep up with half of the twin life by following Darcey and Jesse’s story on new episodes of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days airing Sunday nights at 9/8 on TLC.

    they look like a bunch of hobos.

    How is this the same woman from the other article? She looks like a completely different person!!!

      she posts 20 yr old pics.

        That pilot for the show is only seven years old! I am never getting Thermage.

      Too much plastic surgery!

  • carol

    love the way she and sister have always tried to go Hollywood. Meanwhile, her plastic surgery is horrible, and she is abandoning her two young daughters for 6 weeks while she runs after a 24 year old who would never want her unless it is a Daniele/Mohammed situation

    • Rebecca iPhone

      A Daniele/Mohammed situation? Please educate yourself. I am from the Netherlands and the Netherlands is a RICH country- with better salaries than the US, free healthcare (yes FREE) higher social benefits and NO gun violence. He is definitely not in for a green card, he would take 10 steps back in quality of life πŸ˜†. Maybe he wants 15 minutes of fame but pls- why move to a country that is by far more poor !! πŸ€”πŸ˜

      • Phoxee

        Of course you’d think it’s better if you live there. But it’s not. Now shut up already.

        • Rebecca iPhone

          Undereducated fool, you don’t even have FREE healthcare like we do πŸ˜‚ Yes you’re right: going to a hospital in the US and paying thousands of dollars vs us paying nothing in the Netherlands sure sounds like better to me πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

          • Moo-ham-head

            I am an american but I studied in europe. Many american’s want to think we are the best at everything and just can’t accept it when shown something other than that. I loved my international experiences because I learned both how we are different and how we can learn from each other which makes us better people. p.s.- I wish we had free healthcare, too.

            • motherall

              We can’t afford it….look at the disaster of Obamacare. Free healthcare leads to overuse and long waiting periods by everyone. The leeches who get free care go for every little thing and to the ER which is more expensive.

              • Ace Ramone

                Well I’m on Medicaid in Texas. Texas didn’t expand medicaid under obamacare, so the only way for me to get it is to be on SSI which is an insane program that puts people on poverty and keeps them on poverty. The rules KEEP people from working. I had an urgent health situation and under medicaid I don’t have a gp and the walk in clinic doctor had no after hours phone number to call. I called the nurseline for medicaid and the nurse said I had to go to the ER. I didn’t want to go unless I had to so I went to the minor emergency clinic near me. Guess what? Texas won’t re-imburse those places, and they said I needed immediate medical help and for me to go to the ER at the hospital. I can see why people have to go there for everything. It’s not because they want to, it’s because it is how the system is set up. Does that make me a “leech”? Under the old system I wen’t broke spending almost a half-million dollars OF MY OWN SAVINGS MONEY on my healthcare. Now the only way to get healthcare is to be dirt poor. Don’t preach to me. This country is PLENTY rich enough. PLENTY. Go look at our budget and learn something instead of thinking from a brainwashed perspective.

                • Ima Man-In-Adress

                  Ace, I have compassion for your situation. I sure hope you would have filed bankruptcy before paying over a half million for medical bills!

          • Nik F

            The top quality of healthcare available in The United States is at a different level than other countries. I’m not saying that your healthcare isn’t sufficient, but its not like ours here in the USA, its not.

          • Cary Ortiz

            That’s all you have to say Free Health care…that’s all your country offers. They offer that in many countries. Does your country offer WIK for pregnant woman and children under the age of 5 yrs old. Please sweetheart save it because you have to pay taxes on your clothing and shoes. We don’t. You probably live with mommy and daddy.

            • Rebecca iPhone

              Ahw, yes I have more to say. We also do not have a clown that runs the country. Plus it’s economically and politically stable, family friendly, and has well-developed education system. As shocking as it might be for you: I actually own a condo. So sad that some Americans feel unstable when they hear that there are actually other good countries out there πŸ˜‰

      • motherall

        Better salaries and high taxes to pay for all the freebies. So what do you have? And you don’t have all the walkins we do who cost us so much.

        • Rebecca iPhone

          how about you just continue paying your hospital bills while I go to the hospital for free πŸ˜‰

          • Ima Man-In-Adress

            Well, Rebecca, technically, it is NOT ‘free.’ The tax rate is VERY high in Europe to pay for all that ‘free’ healthcare. And all those increasing refugees and terrorists…a serious problem. But yes, I would have moved to the Netherlands in a heartbeat if it weren’t so hard for Americans to live in Europe. It’s actually quite sad. An American citizen with Dutch heritage has a harder time moving there than a rapefugee.

      • Nik F

        The United States is a richer country than the Netherlands, don’t be delusional…. I’ve been to the Netherlands.

    • soave

      6 weeks is the minimum you have to prove t the visa officer that you spend time together. but besides that – it is staged so it could have probably taken just 2 weeks. and sorry, but her daughters are not babies, they can sruvive some weeks without the mom, they are with their dad. people who have children are not allowed to go away or what?

      • Nik F

        Very well said

  • Rebecca iPhone

    Jesse is like I from the Netherlands, for all Americans that think he wants a green card: the Netherlands is more rich, free healthcare, higher social benefits and no gun violence. Why in the world would he want a green card πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Like I said before: maybe he wants 15 minutes of fame but definitely not a green card

    • what’s going on

      I agree. They both want their 15 minutes of fame.

  • carol

    Listen, I don’t know what is in it for Jesse, but he surely does not want this woman for anything serious. BTW, why didn’t Jesse come to America?

  • sdrawkcab

    What a coincidence Darcey has tried to get other shows going and now on Before 90 Days. All for self-promotion but whatevs. Half the shit is all set up anyway on these shows. SHould have a counter at the bottom to see how many duckfaces she makes thru the season. Yes, 24 year old Jessie really needs a 42 year old woman from across the globe lol. Has jesse actually seen 42 year old pics of Darcey or just the pics from 20 years ago?

  • sdrawkcab

    What’s up with Jesse’s face? Acne damage? Add a little counter for Jesse for everytime he pushes his hair back. I see they’re really playing up the old picture angle…yet Darcy seems like she’s recording herself for him on the plane. Makes no sense.

  • sdrawkcab

    “My thousand dollar shoes”…yyeeeeccchh

  • soave

    how did she managed to mutate in 7 years into this botox monster she is now? it looks like 15 years ago

    • boomdeyay

      Its rather shocking.

    • Rosemary

      I agree she looks like the lion lady Jocelyn Wildenstein or something.

    • Cmiller415

      I have a feeling her botox transformation has something to do w/the cosmetic surgeon we met in the trailer. Why she was so unhappy w/the way she looked that she’d actually ruin her natural beauty w/cosmetic procedures, I dont know. If you are already pretty LEAVE IT ALONE!!! The cosmetic procedures seem to have aged her quite a bit. Why she didnt leave well enough alone I will never know! Some women seem so absolutly terrified of aging they will actually age themselves and completely ruin their natural beauty hoping to slow the aging process down. It almost never works.

  • carol

    Darcy is no longer with this guy-what a surprise. She commented she felt stupid doing this show. Ya think? She came off as a needy middle aged woman trying desperately to cling to her youth with clothing and surgery that looks ridiculous. Heard she moved to LA for her “career” good luck. Check out her clothing website. Nothing but overpriced, trashy clothing.

    • Cmiller415

      I agree. There is a reason 42 year olds SHOULD NOT dress like 24 year olds, IT LOOKS RIDICULOUS!! She and Jesse seem like opposites. She likes to dress up and be dramatic and he likes his woman “natural” and in sneakers.

  • sahali735

    Wow! She doesn’t even look like herself anymore!! She is just oozing desperation and insecurity which will just drive Jesse away, age difference notwithstanding. Her behaviour makes me cringe and be embarrassed for her.

  • boomdeyay

    Is that a Hard Rock shirt on the kid? Just no. And the disposable foil serving dishes at Thanksgiving? Hell no.

  • Gabby

    If you look at Stacey’s Facebook it looks like she is in a relationship with a younger man from Spain. They are so alike.

    • Kristenisacatch

      He’s actually Albanian it says–he’s from the same town an albanian guy I was dating last year is from haha. It looks they have a LDR as well. I wonder why Stacey isn’t on 90 day fiance??

  • SD888

    She was SO much prettier before all that plastic surgery! She’s a Lion Face now! DEFORMED by plastic surgery.

  • Gabriela

    YOU forgot to mention that FRank took care of his 2 daughters for 7 years since β€œDARCEY” was looking for fame in CA. She didn’t provide for them and even lies on the show saying she’s leaving girls with their Dad for the 6 weeks when in reality they lived with their DAD. She had taken them for the weekend only to have them on film. After she finds her fame Frank proposes her To take the girls and start the job she’s never had that is TO BE A MOM. For him it was difficult to not have the financial support she was supposed to give for the girls. She is a liar, and a selfish person, of that I am sure. But hopefully she changes for the good and takes good care of the girls…
