Stephanie opens about stripper past
In Sunday’s instalment (June 7th) called ‘Couples Tell All’, Stephanie revealed that she used to be a stripper when she first moved to Los Angeles.
She said: “When I was in my early 20s, I moved to Los Angeles and I was broke and I had nobody to turn to, so I did end up dancing for a period of time. It messes you up. So after I stopped working there, it definitely changed the way that I am.”
The TLC star previously opened up about her stripper background in an Instagram post in March this year. She revealed that she was 24 when she moved to LA to pursue an acting career but doesn’t regret that she ended up working in a stripper club.
That job forever scarred me in ways that still trickle into my personal life today, BUT I will never regret my move. I ultimately hit rock bottom while living in LA, and through that painful experience sought healing by investing time into my first book.

Wishin’ I was back in LA. There was a time when the thought of returning, even if for a quick visit, pained me. Why? When I was 24 years old I saved 10 grand, packed my bags, and moved to Los Angeles with hopes of becoming an actress. 6 months later I was working as a stripper at a gentlemen’s club called The Palms in Signal Hill ??♀️ Ahh so goes the story of so many aspiring actresses! That job forever scarred me in ways that still trickle into my personal life today, BUT I will never regret my move. I ultimately hit rock bottom while living in LA, and through that painful experience sought healing by investing time into my first book. I took lemons and made something closely resembling lemonade. I have always been a risk taker. I have always lived life on the edge, and although my illness has slowed me down the past few years, I still like to think there is that crazy spontaneity left in me ? What is the absolutely wildest, craziest thing you ever did in your life?
Stephanie and Erika on 90 Day Fiancé
In the all-tell special, Stephanie went on to say that she was surprised Erika wasn’t aware of her intimacy issues.
In fact, Steph opened up about her background in a series of videos on her YouTube channel.
Guess that’s one of the major reasons why Erika and Stephanie would have never worked in the long run.

When did Stephanie and Erika break up?
Following a series of arguments and drama, Erika and Stephanie broke up in a season 4 episode in May this year.
The two had constant fights over intimacy issues, as well as fights over past relationships and family dramas.
Stephanie and Erika were the first-same sex couple to be featured on the TLC series, so even though the two didn’t work out, they at least left a legacy on the show.
