Kalani and Asuelu have two young children, so they clearly don’t have a lot of extra cash to spend, but that doesn’t seem to matter. Not to mention that Asuelu only works part time and Kalani is currently a stay at home mom.
Asuelu’s family wants him to contribute more money
Asuelu and Kalani decide to take a family trip to Washington to see Asuelu’s mother, Lesina, and her two sisters, Tammy and Rosa. The journey is more than hectic for all the wrong reasons from the start when the money is high. Asuelu’s mother asks how much he brought in, and he says he has $ 100, not the $ 1000 that was requested.
Kalani explains that Asuelu only works part-time and is at home with the children. Asuelu’s sister, Tammy, asks why Asuelu can’t work full time to provide for everyone, including his family in Samoa. Asuelu assures him that he is looking for a full time job.
“My mother needs money, and I have a lot of families in Samoa, they need money because my family is poor,” Asuelu tells the producers. “I know my family has been very disappointed, but I want to support my wife, as well as the boys. We don’t really have a lot of money to spend.
Lesina brings up Kalani’s parents and mentions that they have money. Asuelu doesn’t want to rely on Kalani’s parents for everything, and that implies that they should help more so that Asuelu can contribute more around the house.

Nothing is resolved yet, and Kalani decides to meet with Asuelu’s mother and sister, Tammy, with questions. She hopes to “make sense of them” with this reunion, but it doesn’t turn out that way.
“I’m here to tell you guys, I don’t know why you all feel entitled to money from me and my family. And that, as you feel it, you feel it. But at the end of the day, that will be what I say, ”Kalani told them.
Tammy tries to tell him about Samoan culture, and Kalani clearly understands this, but thinks it’s got a little out of hand. “Just give me the money, that’s all I want,” Lesina tells Kalani. She also talks about the fact that Kalani’s parents can “support and help them”.
Tammy says she thinks Kalani is trying to “change” Asuelu. She also mentions that Kalani can work too, and she even brings up divorce. To make matters worse, Lesina also says that she wants Asuelu to return to Samoa. Kalani walks away in tears and Tammy tries to walk after her and rushes towards her. She also says, “I’m going to beat you,” as Lesina restrains her daughter during the dire situation.
Kalani tells Asuelu what happened and it leads to a fight between them
When Kalani returns to tell Asuelu how things went, it doesn’t go well. She tells him about the conversation, saying that they think Kalani has “brainwashed” Asuelu since they can no longer control him. Aseulu looks shocked and says it drives him “crazy”. Kalani passes on all relevant details to her husband, including that his mother wants him to return to Samoa.
Kalani mentions that Asuelu doesn’t need to have a relationship with them, and Asuelu questions that. “Because they’re a *******,” she said. Asuelu tells him not to call them that, then says that they will wait until they understand. Kalani also mentions to Asuelu that Tammy tried to act like she was coming towards her.
“If she had caught me, I would have knocked her out,” Kalani insists. Asuelu asks if Kalani thinks she could really knock Tammy out. “What if my sister knocked you out?” Asuelu asks him. She rolls her eyes and says, “No” She also mentions that she would beat Asuelu in a fight and that she would “drop” Asuelu’s sister if she touched her.
Kalani is really upset and walks away. Asuelu makes not-so-appropriate comments, including: “I think you’re f ****** crazy.”
Kalani and her sister cry while talking about issues with Asuelu and her family
Kalani tells her sister, Kolini, that she wants to get out of there and mentions what happened with Asuelu’s family. She also details what just happened with Asuelu and says he changed everything about who would win in a fight.
“I’m not shocked,” Kolini says. “But at the same time, wow.” Kalani begins to cry, clearly frustrated with the events of the day. And let’s be honest, who would be out of place?
“It’s just crazy,” says Kalani. “And I think it’s always going to be crazy. As I see progress and hope to think that, I will be able to fix or change things, and I will not be able to do so.
Kolini clearly senses what his sister is going through. “The fact that you are sitting here crying for this person for whom you are too good is sad to watch. I’ve been calm like all this time, but I don’t want the kids to like to keep you in a situation that you don’t want to be in, ”Kolini tells her sister, and she cries over the situation as well.
Kalani says she needs to think about what she’s going to do. I hope they can work things out as a family and things don’t get worse from here.
