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.

  • 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

      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˜

        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˜†

  • 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

  • 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?

    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.
