As we saw on this week’s 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, neither Colt Johnson nor Larissa Lima had smooth sailing after their breakups.
But long before Debbie was sabotaging Colt’s romance with Jess, a bromance was brewing between Colt and Eric.
Larissa began dating Eric Nichols weeks after her final breakup with Colt Johnson, the two first meeting in February 2019.
She moved on quickly, but she still moved slower than Colt, who was already lining up side pieces weeks before they split.
But on September 11 (yes), 2019, Larissa abruptly broke things off with Eric over text … and he is the first to admit that he did not take it very well.
In fact, Eric showed up at Colt’s house not long after, posing for a photo op with Colt and Debbie.
Look, a lot of people take breakups poorly.
Showing up at your ex’s ex’s house to bond over mutual bitterness is a tall order.
Colt Johnson sat down with Us Weekly to speak about their short-lived bromance.
“I think he blocked me,” the 90 Day Fiance villain remarks.
Colt claims: “He really wanted to be my friend a lot.”
“He kept texting me every day,” Colt revealed.
“I was busy,” he shared, “and then he eventually blocked me and ghosted me.”
By that, Colt means to say that Eric simply remained out of contact without any closure, farewell, or further contact.
“I felt like we could kind of have this like friendship blooming,” Colt reflects.
“But,” he explains, “I wasn’t really interested.”
Colt characterizes Eric’s response by saying: “and he took that very personal.”
“If Larissa’s happy and Eric makes her happy?” Colt suggests. “That’s great.”
He claims: “I root the best for them, especially right now.”
Colt correctly predicts: “I’m sure they get a lot of haters. A lot of people trying to tear them apart”
“I remember that,” Colt acknowledges. “I was part of that.”
He continues: “So I just want the best for her at the end of the day.”
Some would suggest that, if Colt had wanted this kind of happiness for Larissa when they were married, things could have gone very differently.
On the show, we are seeing Larissa and Eric’s conflict as part of the fallout from Eric badmouthing Larissa after their breakup.
Though things look grim right now, we know that Larissa and Eric have dated for many months since this contentious row.
Hopefully, they have had fewer arguments sense then. Yes, they are both messy and love drama, but it gives me a headache just to think about it.
We are also seeing Colt and Jess fight after Debbie deliberately stirred the pot.
Jess has since moved on, accusing Colt of manipulaton and playing mind games. Viewers have all seen that he lied to her.
Colt then moved on with another woman … and then cheated on her with Vanessa, the same woman whom Jess suspected of desiring him.
We do not have to understand Larissa and Eric’s relationship in order to be happy for them.
For our part, we guess that Eric ghosting Colt had more to do with a sudden onset of remorse for his string of bad behavior after Larissa dumped him.
People mature and realize that they spoke out of anger and they come to regret their actions. Cutting ties with Colt was the right thing to do.

Every time you refresh your Internet browser these days, someone is attacking Ellen DeGeneres.
Over the last few days alone, the comedian has been accused of anchoring a series that’s responsible for cruel, racist and sexist behavior.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is, simply put, a toxic work environment.
But while former staffers, guests and producers are coming out and telling their sordid stories to various outlets these days, Ellen can take solace in having at least one person still in her corner:
On Monday, Portia de Rossi posted a meme to Instagram, along with a simple caption and a few hashtags.
“To all our fans….we see you,” the 47-year old actress wrote, along with the following image.
“Thank you for your support. #stopbotattacks #IStandWithEllenDeGeneres #IStandByEllen.”
Stop bot attacks? What a weird thing to say, right?
de Rossi seems to be implying here that automated social media accounts are responsible for the ongoing trashing of DeGeneres.
However, the scathing reports that continue to go viral all stem from conversations with former, disgruntled talk show employees.
These individuals have anonymously alleged sexual misconduct and harassment involving executive producers at the show, including Ed Glavin and head writer Kevin Leman.
In a new piece for The Wrap, Hedda Muskat recalled behind hired in 2003 as a producer… when the show was still in development.
She worked there for about 18 months, and simply couldn’t believe the way Glavin, for one, behaved.
“He just went off on [a crew member],” she claimed, thinking back to an infamous meeting.
“His whole face turned red…We were stunned. You could just see everybody’s faces go stiff. We’re professionals; we’re adults. We don’t need a dog to get us to do our jobs.”
Muskat added that DeGeneres just sat there and giggled during this outburst.
She would later describe her days working on the show as a “culture of fear.”
She was eventually let go in May 2004 — just days before The Ellen DeGeneres Show won Outstanding Talk Show at the Daytime Emmy Awards.
In an open message to her staff on July 31, DeGeneres addressed all of these troubling allegations.
“On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect,” she said.
“Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case.
“And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”
The previously-beloved star continued:
“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that.
“Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues.
“As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t.
“That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”
Ellen vowed to do her “part” in pushing herself and others “to learn and grow.”
“We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention,” she added.
“I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow.
“It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.”
Warner Bros., meanwhile, acknowledged in a statement last Thursday that “dozens of current and former employees” had been interviewed, and that they were “disappointed that the primary findings of the investigation indicated some deficiencies related to the show’s day-to-day management.”
The company also said:
Going forward, the production company said it has “identified several staffing changes, along with appropriate measures to address the issues that have been raised, and are taking the first steps to implement them.”
“Warner Bros. and Ellen DeGeneres are all committed to ensuring a workplace based on respect and inclusion.
“We are confident this course of action will lead us to the right way forward for the show.”
