’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ Preview: Biniyam Cries Over Ariela & Avi Leaving For The U.S.

Biniyam went to great lengths to stop Ariela and Avi from leaving him in this ’90 Day Fiance: The Other Way’ preview. Ariela promised him they’d return and said they are ‘forever family.’

Ariela has decided to fly back to the United States so Avi can have hernia surgery, but Biniyam thinks they’re going to leave him for good. “Yesterday, Bini got very mad and hid my passport from me,” Ariela reveals in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the October 10 episode of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. “I was very upset and felt like that was an aggressive act towards me. But I do understand that he’s not acting like himself and because he’s so traumatized by what happened with his ex-wife.”

Despite trying to stop her and Avi from leaving, Ariela admits she doesn’t hold a grudge against Biniyam. “I do forgive him for hiding the passports, and he did give them back to me almost immediately,” Ariela continues.

She explains to Biniyam that their son needs hernia surgery, and her parents really want to see their grandson. Biniyam begins to cry. He says that this all reminds him of his last relationship. Biniyam was previously married, and his former wife left him and took their child to the U.S.

Ariela sits down with Biniyam and tells him that he is her “family until the end of time” in his native language. She also has a gift for him. It’s matching gold rings for both of them. Inside the ring says “forever family.”

“I’m not taking this off,” Biniyam tells Ariela. This intimate moment definitely helps Biniyam come to terms that Ariela and Avi are going to the U.S. for just a visit and not leaving him forever.

“I’m hoping that by Bini seeing that I invested the time and the forethought to buy us matching rings, it’ll reassure Bini that I am coming back and will maybe ease his suffering a little bit,” Ariela admits. The series airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on TLC.

Post Modern: 6 Collaborations That Proved Virgil Abloh’s Creativity Was One Of A Kind

Lets take a look at some of the dopest collaborations Virgil Abloh left behind that not only proved it’s possible, but showcased his incredible mind.

Yesterday, the world was stunned when news broke that Virgil Abloh passed after losing his private battle with a rare heart cancer. Virgil is one of the few we can honestly say made every second of his life count and did everything he could while he was here. You name it, V designed it. From sneakers to water bottles, it didn’t matter—he believed you could give a creative take that resonated with any collaboration.

To celebrate the legacy he left behind, let’s review some of Virgil’s most iconic collaborations.

6. Virgil Abloh X IKEA

Virgil’s IKEA collaberation was one of the most sought after collabs he worked on and had fans camping outside of their local IKEA hoping to snag just one product in the launch. From clocks, to chairs, and even rugs, there was something for everyone and the price point was pocket friendly.

5. Virgil Abloh x Moët & Chandon

Alot of Virgil’s work was simplistic but also elevated the product to new heights, making them must haves for the culture. One of his simple yet stunning designs came by way of him redesigning a Moët bottle with “DO NOT DROP”. Not only did you instantly know it was design by Virgil, but in the club, it made a statement being your hand.

4. Virgil Abloh x OFF–WHITE x Nike “The Ten”

After Kanye West joined Adidas, the brand keep the momentum going rallying behind the Ultra Boost model and collaborations with other musicians like Pharrell. Nike, for the first time, wasn’t the biggest brand, that title belonged to Adidas.

However, once Nike announced ‘The Ten’ collection designed by Virgil, they immediately had the hype and brand back in the top spot. Nowadays, these sneakers sell for up to 50x the original value and will continue to go up with the news of Virgil’s passing.

3.  Virgil Abloh x Evian Water

Virgil teamed up with Evian Water to give his take on their classic water bottle and while small in scale, the water bottles flew off shelves regardless. He did a simplistic take with “Make A Rainbow” on the packaging.

2.  Virgil Abloh x Mercedes Benz

When it was revealed Virgil would be designing a car for Mercedes Benz, we all instantly knew the price would be outrageous, but we still wanted to see exactly what would Virgil create. Instead of going right, Virgil went left and turned the G-Wagon into a rally car completely lowered to the ground. Virgil and Mercedes are still scheduled to unviel an electric car next week on December 1st.

1.  Virgil Abloh x Jacob & Co.

Virgil partnered with iconic jewler Jacob & Company to reimagine office supplies as high end jewerly. The collection took paper clips, iced them out, and made necklaces, bracelets, and earrings for those who love out of the box ideas.

BRELAND: 5 Things To Know About The Viral Country Star

BRELAND: 5 Things To Know About The Viral Country Star

Who needs eighty tiny reindeer when you have four-wheel drive? BRELAND, the cross-over country star behind ‘My Truck,’ will be part of ‘CMA Country Christmas,’ so here’s what you need to know.

No need to worry if the weather outside is frightful during the 12th Annual CMA Country Christmas – so long as Santa Claus remembered to bring snow chains for BRELAND. The viral singer behind “My Truck” is taking part in the Nov. 29 special, airing on ABC at 8/7c. With first-time hosts and performers Gabby Barrett and Carly Pearce, BRELAND will do his best rendition of “The Christmas Song,” the holiday classic made famous by Mel Tormé. For BRELAND, his involvement with CMA Country Christmas continues his goal of becoming a “cross country” artist, one that melds different genres and sounds into a modern country vibe.

“I’m making the musical equivalent of chicken-and-rice dishes right now,” BRELAND told the Nashville Scene. “Country’s often used to making chicken and rice with one seasoning. Instead, I’m sampling the whole cabinet of flavors. Ears are like palates to me, and I’m serving familiar dishes in ways that people haven’t experienced before.” So, before BRELAND serves up a plateful of holiday cooking, here’s what you need to know.

1. BRELAND Is A Country Singer From The Garden State.

BRELAND (born Daniel Breland) didn’t grow up in Nebraska, Wyoming, or deep in the heart of Texas. He was raised in New Jersey, growing up in a family of gospel singers, according to The New York Times. He sang and arranged The Phantoms, an acapella group, while he studied at Georgetown. During his sophomore year, he was working in the Far Rockaway home of rapper Chinx. “He left and said, ‘I’m going to go do this show,’” said BRELAND. Except, Chinx never returned. He was murdered in Queens, and BRELAND took that as a sign.

“That let me know that hip-hop probably wasn’t going to be for me,” he said. “I don’t think that I’m really cut out to be in the trenches like that.”

2. He Is The Singer Behind The Song ‘My Truck.’

“I was aware of the fact that the biggest record of all time is a country-trap song by an unknown artist from Atlanta, and now no one else is putting out songs that sound like that,” BRELAND told The New York Times in May 2020, referring to “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X. “Wide open. Why on earth would I not give it a shot?”

After graduation, BRELAND moved to Atlanta and began writing. With the success of “Old Town Road,” BRELAND posted “My Truck” in early 2020. It blew up on TikTok (over 800k videos used the audio) and peaked at No. 28 on the Hot Country Songs chart while reaching No. 92 on The Hot 100. He released a self-titled EP in 2020 and followed it up with “Rage & Sorrow,” a two-track reflection on the murder of George Floyd.

In 2021, he put out the singles “Cross Country” (including a version with Mickey Guyton), “Strawberry Wine,” and “Throw It Back” (featuring Keith Urban.)

3. He Is Popular on TikTok.

“I didn’t have a TikTok [account] before I put [‘My Truck’] up,” BRELAND told Billboard in 2021. “I put the song out in September of 2019, and TikTok wasn’t what it is now, right? It was just literally a button that I clicked on the website I used to put the song on iTunes and the streaming platforms. I was like, ‘Okay, yeah, I’ve heard of TikTok, I’ll put it on there.’ So, when it started to blow up on TikTok, I was like, ‘Okay, I need to figure out how this works and what this even is.’”

As of November 2021, he has over 468k followers and 2.5 million likes on the clock app.

4. He Isn’t Worried About Being Called A One Hit Wonder.

BRELAND’s “Cross Country” is more than a song. “Initially, was more of a concept for a movement or a genre or a sub-genre of country music, even before it was a song,” he told Billboard. “I had this idea that it crossed countries. It’s my classification for all of the music that intersects, country and other genres like R&B, hip-hop, dance, whatever. So, ‘My Truck,’ theoretically, would be a cross country song.”

“I think that the advantage that I have is that I’m a songwriter first and foremost,” he says when asked if he’s worried that “My Truck” might pigeonhole him. “It’s not like I lucked up on ‘My Truck.’ It wasn’t an accident, you know. I’ve written with Florida Georgia Line, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, Trey Songz, Keith Urban, and Sam Hunt and people across a lot of different genres and given them songs that they’re really excited about. I don’t see why it would be different writing stuff for myself.”

3. He Is Just Getting Started. 

As someone who defies genre and keeps one foot in the country world and the other in hip-hop (he had two managers specifically for those purposes), BRELAND is not going to be limited. In fact, he’s already planning to take country to new territories and sounds. “I really want to give people some more music before we delve into a whole album, so we’ve got some singles mapped out,” he told Billboard. “A couple have features, potentially from some of the people that I’ve mentioned. We might have a country twerk song, we might have just a straight-up ballad, and we might have like a country ‘Uptown Funk’ type of song.”
