On Sunday night’s episode of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Michael and Angela woke up after a romantic night of marital bliss — but it was under false pretenses.
Michael confessed he lied to Angela in order to sleep with her, assuming the sex would put her in a better mood for a tough conversation the next day. Michael’s lie? He told Angela he’d finally remove his social media profile, which she’d been hounding him to delete for weeks.
“I did tell Angela last night that I was gonna take down the Instagram to convince her to be sweet with me,” Michael admitted to cameras. “But I really don’t intend to take it down.”

“You knew exactly what you were doing for you to f— me. All the s— we’ve been through, this was your masterpiece. You’re not that goddamn nice, Michael. You’re nice when you wanna be. But when there’s something you wanna do, you don’t give a f—.”
Michael responded. “It’s not all about you. You have a partner now, which is I, myself.”
To cameras, Angela explained her point of view. “How can you love me if you just use me for sex? I feel like a piece of s—,” she said. “Like a w—- on the f—ing street that didn’t get paid. Prostitutes get more respect than Michael gave me.”
Angela stormed out, though Michael followed in an attempt to continue the conversation. He then proposed a compromise. “Let’s both take our social media down then,” Michael said.
“Well, I don’t have to take mine down because I didn’t betray you,” Angela replied. “You did all of this to me.”
