And let's not sell anyone short
Unlike some of the people on 90 Day Fiance, Paola didn't marry very far below her hotness bracket. Russ may not be a model, but they're not one of the couples that makes you do a double take and then kick yourself for being shallow.
They're a recipe for success
Combined, we're sure that they'd make for one hell of a sex tape. Even though, given Russ' conservative roots, it's a bit of a surprise that they made it.
Then again ...
Russ' issue has never been with Paola's hotness. He just used to have (admittedly unreasonable) hangups about her flaunting herself in bikinis and lingerie, even though it was her literal job. Things have gotten better between them.
So yes, it's plausible
Russ would almost certainly never be up for distributing a sex tape. But making one? Plenty of couples make this sort of thing for their personal enjoyment. Though a lot of people end up being disappointed that they don't look as hot or dignified as they'd imagined.
But was Paola telling the truth?
You probably noticed the winky-face emoji at the end of her revelation about the sex tape.
Maybe it was just because of the subject matter
You refer to something like a sex tape and you want to punctuate it with a decent emoji. And eggplant would be thematically appropriate, but not really what fans (or Russ) would want to see from the new mother. A winky face is a good choice.
