In the new show, both Chantel and Pedro’s families will be taking center stage. People first confirmed the news, though the Atlanta resident has been subtly teasing #FamilyChantel for a while on her Instagram.
His mom, Lidia, and sister, Nicole, are joining the cast of the new show. “This is an awesome moment for TLC, as we create a family show based on one of our most popular 90 Day couples, and on a whole new night,” said the network president and general manager, Howard Lee.
“Our fans can’t get enough of Pedro, Chantel and their larger-than-life families,” he continued. “For a brand known as the destination for love, relationships and family shows, The Family Chantel hits the bullseye.”
The couple was first featured on season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé, then went on to star in seasons 2 and 3 of Happily Ever After? This spring, you can catch them in season 4 of the show, and we’ve already gotten a glimpse into the craziness that’s about to go down.
“Sometimes the hardest part of being a great catch is accepting not everyone’s hands are strong enough to hold you,” Chantel wrote on her Instagram story that September. She’d also been spotted without her wedding ring and hadn’t posted a photo with her husband in months.
When the spinoff was announced, Chantel posted a new promo photo — but in this one, neither of them are smiling. While she and Pedro are posing like a couple, both of them are wearing pretty neutral expressions.
His last Instagram post of them together is from October 2017. Though he used to snap selfies with her all the time, he hasn’t shared any in the last year-and-a-half, continuing to fuel the rumors that they may not be so “happily” married.
Karen shows her daughter a taser that she’s bought that she’s named “Shocky,” telling Chantel, “This is a way to show a person the door.” It seems pretty extreme — but considering the fact that River and Pedro actually fought each other, maybe it’s not so crazy.
The chicken feet incident was legendary after Pedro’s mom tried to serve the Dominican dish to Chantel’s family and they flat out refused to eat it, even speculating that it might be part of a voodoo ritual. Though the couple put it behind that issue behind them, it was a moment audiences won’t soon forget.
Chantel’s family even hired a private investigator.
Their problems with Pedro ran so deep than they hired someone to look into him. “Don’t let us sit up here and think that [Pedro and his family] are body traffickers! We don’t want to think that you are being harvested!” Karen said in a June 2018 episode of the show.
