On Thursday, we reported that Larissa Lima and Corey Rathgeber had posed for a selfie together.
She wasn't the first 90 Day Fiance legend with whom Corey had taken a photo, but the pic did get fans talking.
The immediate result was that Evelin Villegas warned Larissa away from Corey.
Her relationship status with Corey remains up in the air. She may be afraid of losing him to someone who lives closer to his family.
Thursday night, that brief exchange exploded into an all-out verbal war. Text messages were exposed, names were called. A feud ignited.
Believe it or not, even Leida tried to get involved.
The selfie that launched a thousand ships
Around midnight on Wednesday night, Corey and Larissa shared this snap. We doubt that either of them had any idea of the firestorm that it would unleash.
First, a brief reminder ...
Corey and Evelin are of course 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way stars. They had their ups and downs but were very much in love, and have been for years. However, something changed drastically at the filming of the Tell All special
According to a leaker ...
Evelin could not attend the Tell All taping, so like most of his castmates, Corey attended alone. As we previously reported, producers had Corey sign a mental health waiver and had a therapist on standby before they showed him a video that is said to show Evelin cheating, in some capacity, before he arrived in Ecuador.
It was not good, folks
Whatever the video showed caused Corey to break down crying. He spoke to the therapist. He remained in the US after that, spending time with his family. Days later, on his birthday, he blocked Evelin on Instagram.
Evelin held out hope ...
And it seemed that it had paid off. Just a few days before this scandal involving Larissa broke out, Corey unblocked Evelin and the two refollowed each other. Fans who wanted to see them reconcile rejoiced, hoping that they were talking it out.
Meanwhile, Larissa is very single
It's been about a month since her breakup from Eric Nichols. It was about the same amount of time, at the beginning of the year, between when she and Colt broke up and when she joined TInder -- and found Erickee. To those who see Larissa as a man-stealing skank, the fear that she would gobble up Corey was all too real. And since he'd already spent a lot of money on Evelin, they worried that Larissa would zero in on him.
