90 Day Fiancé fans were shocked to learn David Murphey’s ex Lana can speak English. Now, she’s also claiming their engagement was just for show.
Seven years of dating and four canceled meetings later, David Murphey finally met Lana on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. In what TLC viewers thought was a clear case of catfishing, David revealed he spent $100,000 on Lana while talking to her on a Russian website. The 90 Day Fiancé couple got engaged in the finale, only for David to talk about them “not being together” on the Tell-All. But in a new twist of events, Lana confessed what 90 Day Fiancé fans always knew was the truth – the engagement was for the “90%” scripted show.
Las Vegas man David’s love for Slavic women led him to sign up for a website where he came across Lana. The 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star, aged 60, didn’t mind that Lana, 29, was half his age as he chatted with her for over 5,000 hours. But when it came to meeting her, Lana always stood David up, whether it was by giving him a wrong address or simply not arriving at the meeting place. Lana’s constant absence eventually made David hire an investigator. But while Lana accepted David’s ring and a new phone after he finally found her, she apparently couldn’t even text him back after he went to America. Apparently, Lana’s long nails made it difficult for her to type, even though she continued using the dating website where she met David. But as rumors of Lana being previously married began to surface, David hinted at still being in touch with the Ukrainian woman. Thankfully, Lana has now shared her side of the story.

Lana, who joined Instagram and later Cameo last year, has not really been the kind who chats with her followers. But all of Lana’s 1000+ fans were in for a treat when she decided to do a Q&A and answer some burning questions. David’s on-off lover revealed random facts about herself, such as her favorite fruit, make-up brand, and more. But as Lana answered questions, fans realized she is quite fluent in English, too. The TLC celeb further shocked fans by revealing she works in “law enforcement” and her regular day involves “coffee, work, and gym.” But the confessions were just getting started for Lana, who, when asked if she’s still engaged, answered, “It was just for the show.”
Lana, who goes by Svetlana on IG, was further prodded by 90 Day Fiancé fans to tell “what was scripted and what was real,” to which she replied, “90% was scripted (too much to tell).” Last year, David hinted at returning to the show, but Lana seems to be in two minds. “Depends. Did not participate in tell-all because the show did not allow the truth to be told and I no longer wanted to participate in this stupidity that they created,” Lana said when asked if she would film again. She then added that “yes” she does still talk to David and mentioned she didn’t “ghost David” and that it was “the idea of the show.”
While Lana, who never spoke a word of English on the show shocked many 90 Day Fiancé viewers by joining Cameo, these Instagram confessions are more shocking. With David flaunting his new makeove,r which led fans to think he’s prepping for a TLC comeback, Lana’s accusations against the network might be a dampener. But who knows – perhaps young-looking David might just return to 90 Day Fiancé, with a new Ukrainian girlfriend, even younger than Lana.
