On Tuesday we shared the very first preview trailer for TLC’s new 90 Day Fiance spin-off Before the 90 Days, which will track couples involved in international relationships who have yet to meet in person. The clip featured 42-year-old Darcey Silva from Middletown, Connecticut, and her 24-year-old significant other Jesse, a 24-year-old physical trainer from Amsterdam. Soon after TLC posted the video, Darcey shared it on her Facebook page and expressed remorse over her decision to appear on the show fearing that she will not be portrayed well.
“Wow!!! I’m so sad and lost for words!!!” Darcey captioned the link to the preview. “I’m already feeling not portrayed well here! Good luck to me!!!!” A commenter laughed at Darcey’s caption, but she was quick to point out that she was serious. “Not too funny to me!” she wrote. “Thank god they will love Jesse!!”
Darcey seems to have an army of supporters, and one of them assured her that TV viewers will love her too. “Not convinced hun!” was Darcey’s reply. “Sorry I feel like I just damaged my name and company! I should’ve kept our love private! Too many people judge and makes me look desperate and bad! Not good for my kids and family name either.”
Darcey then iterated that she thought Jesse was going to come out looking great, and not just “Calvin Klein briefs photo” great like in his photos. She reveals that Jesse is already getting contacted by women who have seen the clip — which is pretty impressive given that the clip did not reveal Jesse’s full name!
Jesse himself, whose full name is Jesse Meester, consoled Darcey. “Babe you look amazing and you will shine as always!!” he wrote. “I love you and don’t let anyone bring you down. I will always have your back!!! ♥”
“Of course you can say this!” replied Darcey. “Cause you look good in it! Sky the limit for you hun! I feel like it tarnished my name, family and company possibly.” She further lamented her decision by repeating her concerns about the reputation of her family and her business. “I should have kept our relationship private now I just screwed myself and everything that matters most here too! He’s the lucky one!!! He don’t seem or look desperate Like me! I’m f**ked I guess!”
The preview is just the beginning, too, according to Darcey. “I know and see how the drama will unfold from what we filmed,” she says, “I feel it’s not in my favor at all!!!…Just feeling sabotaged and just gonna be prob looking worse as it airs!”
The positive responses did eventually alleviate Darcey’s fears a little, however. “My heart is more at ease with all the positive comments. Yes It’s been a beautiful long journey so far with him and we will see how the rest unfolds production wise!”
And speaking of how it all unfolds… In case you haven’t deduced it already, the SPOILER ALERT for Darcey and Jesse is that they are still together and deeply in love! The two are currently on vacation together in Greece in what appears to be Darcey’s return visit to Europe. Judging from her social media timelines, her initial trip when she first met Jesse in person was back in February. The in-person meeting only heated up their love flames, and the two have been quite generous with the sexy PDA and banter.
Here are Darsse (that’s my celebrity couple name for the duo) looking hawt together for a recent photo shoot:
Just this week, while on vacation in Greece with Darcey, Jesse was asked on Facebook if he works out while on vacation. “Yes, I swim in the sea, mostly,” says Jesse, adding the ☀️? ? emoji. “Especially since I eat more calories than I would normally. It helps!”
Darcey responded to that with a little TMI: “Ohhhh Yes U do baby….thank heaven you and I get a different kinda workout too outside the sea too! A sexy workout!!! If you know what I mean! Lol!!! ???”
“Haha ♥!!” wrote Jesse. “Love swimming with you so much!! Loads of dips!!! ♥” It seems clear that these two have already surpassed Danielle and Mohamed in the consummation department!
According to her posts online, Darcey plans on moving to Los Angeles with her two daughters when she returns. It’s not known if — or perhaps more accurately, when — Jesse will follow.
If you’re wondering what Darcey’s business is that she is worried about the show tarnishing the reputation of, that would be The Silva Collection and House of Eleven fashion brands, which Darcey founded with her twin sister Stacey Silva. From the looks of things, it may be that Darcey and Jesse met via business connections because he too has a clothing line called MeesterPT. The promotional photo above is from a shoot promoting a partnership between House of Eleven and MeesterPT (I think). So, even if Darcey is not portrayed well on the show, at least it will be good exposure for their collaborative new line!
Darcey may regret deciding to do 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, but being on a reality show has apparently been a goal of hers for some time. Check out this preview trailer for her and her sister Stacey Silva’s proposed reality show Darcey & Stacey: Life In The Mirror:

Getting back to the present and Darcey’s current reality show, she has apparently moved past her pessimism and regret and is focusing on the positive. Here are a couple of her most recent Facebook posts:
