90 Day Fiance: The Real Reason Big Ed And Rose Split

Big Ed Brown and Rosemarie Vega had one of the more memorable breakups on 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. The Season 4 couple put their differences on full display after Ed arrived to Rose's native Philippines to pursue a romantic relationship with her, via ET. The two entered into a long-distance romance after the San Diego resident met the Filipina online. But, Ed faced backlash from viewers during his time with Rose after he issued harsh judgment on her appearance and lifestyle, Us Weekly reported. 

In addition to asking her to shave her legs, he riled up fans when he told her to brush her teeth while accusing her of having bad breath and even asked her to get an STD test despite not undergoing one himself. After it aired, he told Us Weekly that he took an STD test "immediately" after returning to the States and it came back "clean."

But, the damage had already been done and things only got worse once Rose learned of Big Ed's intentions not to have kids until after he met her in person. She became infuriated with him after previously telling him how bad she wanted to have two more children to raise along with her 4-year-old son, Prince. After breaking up and appearing on the tell-all reunion, the former couple shared conflicting stories on what happened between them after the season wrapped.

Rose Vega calls Big Ed a 'liar'

During the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Season 4 tell-all, Rosemarie Vega called out Ed Brown for being a "liar," ET reported. Her frustration came after Ed told a different story on the communication they had after their breakup. He claimed that Rose reached out to him around Valentine's Day and asked him to buy her a gift. He went on to reveal that he was ready to get back together with her until she found out she was dating another woman. 

Rose was clearly hurt and upset by his comments and said he'd "always be a liar." She went on to confirm that she was dating a woman to move on from Ed, but said they were no longer together. She also claimed Ed was the one who reached out to her, and the only reason she responded was because she did not want to be rude. She also accused him of asking her to get naked on video in exchange for money, something Ed denied.

By the tell-all's end, Rose confirmed that she wanted nothing to do with Ed after all that he put her through. Ed meanwhile apologized for his controversial treatment during their relationship. After the tell-all, fans took to Reddit to call Big Ed out for seemingly outing Rose on national television, via Cheat Sheet. In August 2020, Rose posted a YouTube video where she shared how happy she is with her life post Ed.
