Tammy has made it no secret in past episodes that she thinks Asuelu should be giving more money to their mom and to support their family back in Samoa, and Lesina has openly demanded it. While Kalani has been opposed to Asuelu giving more money than he can afford given that they're also struggling to take care of their two young sons, she does acknowledge Asuelu relied on Tammy's money when he lived in Samoa.
"I think Tammy just doesn't like what Asuelu gives because Tammy has given a lot of money in the past," she says. "I think that now that Asuelu is in America, she's kind of trying to pass that off to him. I mean, I don't think Asuelu would have survived growing up without her money, like, he basically lived off Tammy's money when he was in Samoa."
But Asuelu notes that he's already given a significant amount of money to his mom because he used to give her his whole paycheck before coming to America to be with Kalani -- around $600 to $700 a month, which over the years, equated to at least $15,000. Kalani then shares that before he moved to America, he cleaned out his whole bank account and gave it to his mom, which caused a fight between the two. Kalani is also clearly irritated that not all the money he's given Lesina is for the family.
"It's also bingo money, church fundraisers, church events," she says.

"It's just hard," Kalani said, wiping away tears. "In Samoan culture, your mom can never do anything wrong that would ever warrant not talking to her. But to me, like, there's certain lines that shouldn't be crossed that got crossed."
"To me, my uterus really isn't up for discussion for a bunch of people in one room," she also said. "Like, I don't want to talk about when I'm gonna have kids or what I'm gonna do. That's a me and him conversation, that's not an everyone conversation."
