Hazel Cagalitan is letting her parents know the truth about her sexuality. On the upcoming episode of 90 Day Fiancé, the 28-year-old reality star nervously video calls her mother and father in the Philippines and reveals to them that she's bisexual.
She explains that her parents are "very serious, born-again Christians" who "don't like bisexual or gay."
Hazel, who is currently in a relationship with Tarik Myers, nervously asks her father, "Pa, would you be angry if I like women? ...I like men and I like women."
"Oh no!" her mother responds.
Hazel then explains to her parents that Tarik is fine with her having a relationship with a woman as well as himself. "Don't you do that," her mother says. "It's unacceptable. I hope it will be gone soon. Let's pray fervently."
Hazel tells her mom, "What I'm supposed to do when I'm already like this? I didn't tell you before because I didn't want you to be upset. But this is me. Even if it pains me to tell you."
"I feel like now that I'm here and I am free, like, I am free to be who I really am," Hazel said at the time. "I'm glad because finally I found a guy that really accepts me and especially my son, and now I'm not shy for being me."
90 Day Fiancé airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
