A comment from Mike’s mother on a recent episode had many fans scratching their heads. What is a water moccasin and should Natalie be offended?
Mike Youngquist of 90 Day Fiancé fame has a mother named Trish who never really took a shine to Natalie Mordovtseva, and Trish’s comment about a water moccasin may have been a sly dig at Natalie. During Thanksgiving, Trish suggested a strange critter as a possible menu item for Natalie’s dinner. There seemed to be a lot of subtext to her comment. Trish was never fully on board with her son’s relationship with Natalie. Her recent comment on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? seems to indicate that Trish’s opinion of her Ukrainian daughter-in-law hasn’t changed.
Throughout their K-1 visa process, Mike and Natalie’s relationship was tumultuous, to say the least. Despite the problems, the couple finally got married at the end of 90 Day Fiancé season 8. However, Trish was not thrilled. Though she was not at the wedding, she tried to convince Mike’s neighbor to object during the ceremony. Mike and Natalie may have gotten married, but that doesn’t mean Trish has given up hope that her son will send Natalie packing.

In the latest episode of Happily Ever After?, Mike is making plans for him and Natalie to visit his mother in Tulsa, Oklahoma at Thanksgiving. Mike and his mother discuss the menu. He reminds his mom that as a pescatarian, Natalie eats fish but no poultry. Trish laughingly responds, “well, there’s a river down at the bottom of the hill. We could get a water moccasin out of it.” Mike is not amused.
The comment left many fans wondering, “What is a water moccasin?” They also wondered if the comment was an insult to Natalie. A water moccasin is a type of venomous water snake found in the southeastern United States. The snake, also known as a cottonmouth, has very potent venom. Although fatalities are rare, bites from these snakes can be extremely dangerous. Trish has painted herself as a real villain with this backhanded comment. Mike’s mom laughed it off, but viewers raised eyebrows when she joked about serving Natalie a venomous snake for Thanksgiving dinner.
Trish’s “joke” about the water moccasin had a sharp edge to it and lots of not-so-hidden meaning. It may prove that the water snake isn’t the only creature with a fierce bite. Mike’s mom went for the kill with her water moccasin comment, and it seems like she was subtly calling Natalie a snake. Natalie was nervous about meeting Mike’s mom for the first time, and maybe she was right to be concenred. Trish’s close relationship with her son makes her highly protective and judgmental.
Mike and Natalie’s relationship hasn’t improved much since 90 Day Fiancé, but Trish isn’t helping the situation. Even though Mike seems annoyed by Natalie, his mother’s snide comments are still getting on his nerves. Many fans were upset to see that Mike and Natalie were going to star in Happily Ever After? this season because their relationship is crumbling so fast. Mike’s mom Trish is happy to watch the downward spiral.
