90 Day Fiancé star Stephanie Davison wanted to clear the air and spill major tea on her decision to go along with her largely fake storyline. The 52-year-old took to Instagram on Saturday, April 17, to share Part 2 of her Tell-All hosted by YouTuber The Celeb Talk Guy. In the caption of her Instagram post, she claimed Part 2 was a chance for her to answer fan questions.

Those who follow her on Instagram know the Season 8 star produced Part 1 of her Tell-All by herself. She released the video on April 12. 90 Day Fiancé fans quickly became obsessed with the video. But, they wanted to know more. So, making a Part 2 just made sense.
Part 1 of her tell-all — The fake storyline
In Part 1 of her Tell-All, Stephanie Davison discussed what 90 Day Fiancé fans saw on television. In her first video, she tells fans nearly all of her storyline was fabricated by the production team.
“One of the very first things I want to tell you is during production, Ryan and I did break up. I immediately called the producers and said Ryan and I are finished, we are not going to be on the show.” She explained.
Stephanie Davison and her much younger boyfriend Ryan were technically a couple when they were cast to be part of Season 8 in May of 2020. But, they broke up part of the way through production in August. Turns, out those scenes where fans watched as she traveled to Belize to be with her long-distance flame was merely a fabrication. They filmed these scenes in October. This would have been a few weeks after they broke up.
Stephanie Davison reveals she decided it would be easier to just go with the fake storyline until the season was over.
I went on this show because I knew what it would do for my business, OK? So having said that, I wasn’t out seeking fame, never wanted to be famous. I said, ‘If you show me at my office, show the name of my business, show what Pam and I do on a daily basis, I’ll do the show.’ That was one contingency I did have for the show because that was the only reason I was doing this show was because the exposure for my business.”
What about her fling with Ryan’s cousin Harris Flowers?
Turns out the fling she allegedly had with Ryan’s cousin Harris was also a fabricated storyline by the production team. After fans believing she had a romantic relationship with both Ryan and Harris… Stephanie Davison was labeled as a cougar.
She explained: “I thought well, if Harris will fill in, I’ll try and stick it out. So, as you saw on the show, I did call Harris and Harris came. He stayed with me and they totally turned that around.”

The show suggested something romantic was starting to brew between Harris and Stephanie. Stephanie, however, doubles down on the fact that this alleged relationship never happened.

Now, Stephanie insists the entire Harris storyline was fabricated for views.

Many 90 Day Fiancé fans assume Stephanie Davison participated in the fake storyline for fame. She, however, insists she never wanted to be famous. She, however, did want the exposure for her business.
“I went on this show because I knew what it would do for my business, OK? So having said that, I wasn’t out seeking fame, never wanted to be famous.” She insists.
