Angela and Michael , now appearing on Season 7 of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé, have had a rocky road to love. Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi first met online before Angela Deem traveled from Hazlehurst, Georgia, to her then-boyfriend’s home country of Nigeria. The couple fell in love and got engaged quickly, appearing on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days.
Since then, though, things haven’t been so simple. Angela and Michael struggled with fertility issues, cheating, and cultural differences. Most recently, Michael applied for a K-1 visa and the couple were worried about how their relationship would eventually develop if his application was rejected.
On the Dec. 15 episode of 90 Day Fiancé, “The Truth Shall Set You Free,” Angela Deem prepared for Michael’s arrival in the United States. The grandmother of six told her grandchildren to get ready for a new “man of the house” and new house rules.

On “The Truth Shall Set You Free,” Angela explained just how busy her life was…and exactly what Michael Ilesanmi would soon be walking into, as long as his application went through.
“I have six grandkids, my 78-year-old mother, and myself living under one roof,” explained Angela. Her adult daughter Skyla “might as well” also live with her, she said.Meanwhile, her older daughter Scottie is currently behind bars for a child abuse conviction, making her life all the more complicated and currently in charge of all her grandchildren.
Angela sat down with her grandkids for a talk about her husband-to-be, explaining that she had bought a new lock for their bedroom door so they could have privacy and alone time. “We need to lay down some basic rules,” she told the children and prepared them for the big changes to come.
“Papa’s getting ready to come,” she told the children. The 90 Day Fiancé star explained that the children were not allowed to come to the bedroom or bathroom, even though they were used to “running around freely”, because a man and a woman have to spend time alone, and Michael may be getting dressed.
“We’ve never had a man be in the house, right?” she said. “And you can’t sleep with Meemaw anymore, because Daddy’s going to sleep in bed.”
“No, Michael will sleep down here!” one granddaughter protested. But, without getting graphic, Angela insisted that a “man and woman” spend time alone together and that the children should respect that.
’90 Day Fiancé’: Angela said Michael would be the ‘man of the house’
Angela also warned her daughter and grandkids that Michael would be taking a position of authority in their home. “He’ll be the man of the house,” said the 90 Day Fiancé star. “And when I’m gone, Michael is in charge. When he tells you to do something, you do it. “
She added that Skyla would have to learn to respect Michael as the head of the family. “That’s gonna be her stepfather,” Angela said. “No, ma’am,” Skyla lulled back.
But the 90 Day Fiancé star would have none of it. “At the end of the day, he is gonna be the man of this house, and everybody better get used to it,” Angela said. “He don’t have to win nobody else over but me.”
’90 Day Fiancé’: Skyla wasn’t thrilled with her future stepfather
Angela and her daughter Skyla continued to clash about Michael’s hoped-for arrival. The 90-day fiancée star told TLC producers that her daughter was “not enthusiastic at all”, in part because she had asked her for a donor egg to “give a baby” with Michael.
“She also thinks that he don’t even want a baby, he’s after American citizenship,” Angela explained. “He ain’t got me convinced,” Skyla admitted.
But Angela’s daughter changed her music somewhat after an emotional wedding dress shopping session with her mother.
When the 90 Day Fiancé star found her dream dress, she exclaimed, “I feel like the queen I am.I really feel like a bride… I’m really in love with Michael. I don’t have to be young to feel young. “
Despite her objections to the wedding, Skyla admitted that it was ‘surrealistic’ to see her mother in a wedding dress and that she finally got excited about the wedding. “He’ll think he’s good with you,” Skyla told her mother.
And while she confessed that she still had her reservations, Skyla still gushed at the end of the episode, “Mama’s gonna be a beautiful bride.”
