90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star Kimberly Rochelle was called out for being manipulative, and her on-screen actions prove that. The 30-year-old reality star initially had a functional relationship with her Indian partner, Tejaswi “TJ” Goswami. However, things rapidly changed once she arrived in India and began disrespecting her beau’s family and culture. Recently, Kimberly talked to her parents and acted like she was the victim, and TJ’s family members were the perpetrators for asking her to adopt Indian traditions. She claimed she wasn’t excited to marry TJ because her in-laws wanted her to change.
Kimberly’s attitude problem has been evident since her debut in 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 5. However, viewers recently discovered that the Alabama woman is also a big “gaslighter.” ET shared a preview of the upcoming episode, which showed Kimberly apologizing to TJ for mistreating him in front of her parents.
While TJ was ready to break up, Kimberly cried and begged him to reconsider, stating that he was the only guy she ever wanted to marry. Fans felt repulsed by Kimberly’s gaslighting behavior and discussed it on a Reddit thread started by Electronic_Ninja5260. While some claimed Kimberly faked tears to “have the upper hand,” others thought she likes “getting her way.” Ahminah went so far as to say Kimberly “is no victim!”
Kimberly & TJ’s 90 Day Fiancé Relationship Explained
Kimberly and TJ’s relationship hasn’t sailed smoothly because of their cultural differences. However, the American woman’s off-the-rails attitude has also been a big reason for the issues. Kimberly has caused a lot of drama in TJ’s life since landing in India. She has triggered her future mother-in-law by wearing an unacceptable outfit during a family gathering, has shown no respect for TJ’s culture, and misbehaved with her soon-to-be brother-in-law. Kimberly has also undermined her beau’s efforts and shown no sign of respect for him. When TJ built a new abode for Kimberly, she called him out for minor issues instead of thanking him.
Viewers are right to call out Kimberly’s various flaws. The 90 Day Fiancé star has many issues apart from her gaslighting behavior. She has a superiority complex, a manipulative personality, and an unfriendly attitude toward fans. Kimberly also has shown signs of self-pity, proven by how often she portrays herself as a victim. Recently, she posted a video claiming she wanted to be a singer, but one interaction with her mother in her childhood stopped her. She cried in her Instagram video and tried to make fans feel sorry for her.
Kimberly and TJ are seemingly on the verge of breaking up. However, the two can save their relationship by changing their personalities. TJ needs to be more assertive and confident around Kimberly. He must drop the nice guy act and be more expressive as her partner. Similarly, Kimberly needs to understand that opting for Indian culture doesn’t mean she is changing herself. She needs to broaden her mindset and see that embracing the Indian traditions will only help her grow and expand. The new 90 Day Fiancé pair must communicate more to fix their issues and become more considerate while talking to each other.
