So, a while back, we were able to reveal how much 90 Day Fiance stars are paid after some people who were not under contract but appeared on the series decided to reveal what they’d experienced.
Those were friends of David and David’s fiancee, Annie.
Well, after appearing on 90 Day Fiance herself, David’s adult daughter is not mincing words when she describes what sort of man her father is. And … she’s not exactly singing his praises, folks.
So, David Toborowsky’s from the US. Annie Suwan’s half his age, and from Thailand.
Annie hales from an impoverished community (not all of Thailand, folks, just her hometown) and is looking for a guy who can and will take care of her.
David’s daughter, Ashley, who’s 28 (remember, he’s twice Annie’s age) appeared on 90 Day Fiance, and she did not exactly gush about her father.
In fact, she straight-up told Annie that the guy’d been a cheater and deadbeat dad.
And now Ashley Toborowsky gave an interview to Auntie’s Advice, and she explained exactly where she’s coming from in terms of her father.
“He might say he wants to be back with his kids but that’s not the truth.”
Meaning that her appearance on 90 Day Fiance was more of a stunt to make him seem less selfish.
“He’s been a very selfish person his whole life.”
Some people are like that.
“Yes, he loves his children, but does he want to be responsible for people?”
Love is good, but being a parent is a lot of responsibility. If you just want to love kids with zero responsibility, be an aunt or uncle and visit them from time to time.
“No, he doesn’t want to be responsible for people.”
Interesting, since Annie is counting on him to be her provider.
“He wants to do what David wants to do.”
Now, plenty of people feel that way. And that’s fine.
What’s not fine is feeling that way, having kids anyway, and continuing to care only about your own desires and to generally put your wishes first.
Ashley did have some very positive things to say about her dad’s best friend, Chris.
Now, as you may recall, Chris and his wife, Nikki, have been very generous to David and even appeared on 90 Day Fiance, without getting paid, in order to support their friend.
It was after a shocking episode aired that Chris and Nikki took to social media to reveal what they’d experienced.
See, during the episode, Chris had asked Annie for a massage to repay him for allowing her and David to stay with them.
That’s super gross. Like, even before all of the stuff that we’ve heard about Weinstein and so many others, we all recognized that this was not an appropriate request.
(Asian women in particular have been fetishized, often portrayed as sex workers — particularly in the context of massage parlors. Which made the request extra gross)
Well, Chris and Nikki — who were not under contract to keep quiet — revealed that the producers had asked Chris to say that, in order to stir up drama with viewers.
Technically, that’s better than if Chris had come up with the creepy suggestion himself, but it’s pretty disheartening.
We bring up Chris because, well, Ashley herself does.
She had a lot to say about her dad, but she seemed to have just as much to say about her dad’s best friend and his wife.
“They’re nice people. I know that Chris has definitely helped my dad a lot.”
Like, a whole lot.
“Chris has definitely opened up his heart and his arms to Dad. Like I said they’ve been best friends.”
Chris and Nikki have gone above and beyond for David, it sounds like. But they go way back.
“He watched my Dad go through the divorce with my Mom. Nikki, I don’t really know much about her. I’ve only seen her on the show and that was it.”
Ashley was close to her father when she was younger, but they grew apart as, she says, she saw him for who he really was.
Ashley spoke about her father’s fiancee, Annie:
“She’s nice. You know she doesn’t speak to us really. She’s dad’s wife, girlfriend, fiancee. Whatever you want to call her.”
That sounds like an accidental slip-up — it was reported a while back that David and Annie ultimately did end up getting married.
Ashley does not mince words when she describes her father — she says that what you see of David on 90 Day Fiance is what you get.
“An a–hole? Yeah. Authentically? Yeah. He can’t fake that one. Everyone can see exactly what that is. That wasn’t scripted. That’s dad.”
“I may come off as harsh on the show to my dad. Some people might see me as disrespectful and that’s okay. I’ve had a very crazy relationship with my dad.”
It sure sounds like it.
Best of luck to Annie with her new life, we guess.
