Love After Lockup: Rachel Admits Her Facial Expressions Are ‘Out of Control’

Rachel has heard the complaints from Love After Lockup fans about her extreme PDA with Doug and is addressing it along with her 'out of control' facial expressions. The WeTV star recently talked exclusively with Screen Rant and spoke candidly about what many viewers have been commenting on when it comes to her relationship with Doug. It was upon her husband's release from prison that he couldn't keep his hands off of her during the short drive to the hotel. Once inside the hotel, the couple went at it for a while before finally telling the camera crew to leave. After seeing all the backlash she and Doug received online, Rachel explained how surprised she was by Doug's onscreen behavior and how much of it producers let make the cut.

Doug and Rachel are living as a married couple for the first time after tying the knot eight months before his prison release. Being the dedicated and loyal wife she is, Rachel has been caring for Doug's 12-year-old son Dougie after the two got married. Doug has only spent short periods of time with his son after serving two consecutive prison sentences with a 40-day gap in between. Doug came off as pretty commanding of Rachel during their phone calls and upon his release. But according to Rachel, it was all for show and her husband treated her much better behind the scenes than he portrayed when the cameras were rolling.

But it was their car ride to the hotel after Rachel picked Doug up from prison that rubbed viewers the wrong way. While speaking exclusively with Screen Rant, Rachel addressed the "nastiness" when it came to her and Doug's naughty PDA scenes early on in the season. "You know, I did not think that he was going to put his hand up my dress that quick on national TV," Rachel admitted. Fans were left shocked when cameras showed how touchy-feely Doug was during the quick ride from the prison to the hotel. "I mean I thought he could last the 8-minute ride to the hotel," Rachel said before noting how "as a cast member, we don't know what gets put out there."

It turns out that Rachel and Doug didn't think producers would actually let all the naughty scenes make the final cut. The couple was under the impression that "maybe they'll, you know, make it look so messy," Rachel confessed before also addressing fan reactions to her facial expressions. "As you can see, I’m an expressive person, my facial expression, they're out of control, and I own it, it's fine," Rachel said. She went on to explain the awkward bedroom scene where fans got to see the couple go at it for a while before telling the camera crew to leave. "That went on for like 20-30 minutes before we kicked them out, and I said, “Okay, I’m ready," Rachel said. "I’m like I need a career still and a job and whatever…” And we just go on with life and closed the door. And, you know, it's not like it's just me and him. It's eight people."

Pretty awkward indeed. But Rachel handled it well and got the viewers talking. It's all a part of being on reality TV. She recently revealed how "adamant" Doug was about getting cast on the show. It looks like her husband might've been playing things up for more camera time, which ended up happening. Along with Stan and Lisa, Rachel and Doug are one of the most talked-about couples on season four of Love After Lockup.
