Chima Simone of Big Brother 11 is speaking out for the first time since leaving the show. BigBrotherExaminer was able to get an email from Chima explaining her side of what supposedly happened.
Our first report on this story yesterday was that Chima had quit. CBS then put out a statement claiming the producers kicked her off the show. Well Chima is now saying she did “in fact quit the show.” Her words are below -
“Yes, I did in fact quit the show, although there are reports on EW from CBS to the contrary. Big Brother would like everyone to believe I was kicked off for not following the rules, but I went to the producers repeatedly over the past couple of days wanting to leave….wanting out of that house!
As crazy as that house is, the producers NEVER want the world to think or know that we houseguests DO LEAVE when it becomes futile to stay. I lost faith in the show & my ability to remain committed to this game. All of the remaining housemates know I wanted to leave and that is why any conversation concerning me is cut in the live feed because they don’t want America to hear the truth about my voluntary departure.
Do you really believe that I would be expelled for tossing my microphone when past houseguests have only been kicked off for violence & threats of violence? You know better, as do I.
It’s better that I left. I did what was best for me in this game and that was to leave. When I chose to play & play hard the power I did earn was completely usurped by a game piece never used before in this game and my HOH reign was rendered useless. I have no regrets. As cliche’ as it sounds, until the public is a part of a human pressure cooker, then the judgements should cease.
I find it interesting that my personal attacks on Russell have been highlighted, but his attacks on me pushed under a rug. Selective portrayals? I think so. Russell did terrorize the house, especially the women in the house. Why America constantly finds men attacking women okay, yet vilifies the woman defending herself, will always confound me. But what’s done is done, now BB fans can find a new woman to hate. I didn’t sign up for what I was exposed to & I left gladly. It was the principle of the matter, the $500,000 prize be damned. That’s all for now! Take Care…’
There is a new twist in the whole Chima Simone leaving the Big Brother house saga. We reported earlier today that Chima quit the show, but CBS has now issued an official statement saying Chima was kicked off the show by the producers. The statement is below -
“Chima has been evicted by the producers from the Big Brother house for violating the rules. She will not be part of the show’s jury. Her eviction will be addressed on an upcoming broadcast of the show.”
It was assumed that Chima had quit based on her actions on Friday, and her past threats to quit the show. When the feeds came back on today, the other houseguests also seemed to be under the assumption she had quit. Can’t wait to see the footage of what really happened.
Chima Simone has officially quit Big Brother 11. The most annoying houseguest in BB history 32 years old freelance journalist from California freaked out on the live feeds last night and is no longer on the show.
The feeds were cut off for about 2 hours early this morning, Chima was no longer in the house once they came back on. There is some speculation as to what exactly happened but there are certain facts that we do know.
THE REMAINDER OF THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS AS WELL AS MORE DETAILS ON CHIMA’S QUITTING.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes recently published her new book, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice, which is already in stores. In an interview with WSBTV.com, NeNe talks about her unsteady relationship with fellow cast member Kim Zolciak, clears up rumors about her home being rented, and hints at the likelihood of leaving ATL.
Below are some of the excerpts from the interview-
Why is your relationship with Kim on the rocks?
We’re not real friends and we never have been. That’s what I think a lot of the viewers don’t know. We’re good associates and I don’t think associate is a bad word. Kim is in the associate category. My very good friends are not seen on the show.
Speaking of folks you’re not getting along with … let’s talk about the friction between you and Kandi, the newest cast member. What’s the beef between you two? I’m not really sure. I didn’t know Kandi before the show.
Were you a fan of the group Xcape? I don’t know the group Xscape. I think they may have done OK … some good music here and there.
They had some big hits Really? Well, I hadn’t paid attention. It’s been a long time since they’ve been on the scene. We’re just two women who are like oil and water. We just don’t mix. I’m not going to lose sleep or weight over it.
Have you talked to fellow housewife Lisa Wu-Hartwell after losing her home? I’ve spoken to Lisa … you know we talk all the time. It’s not a big deal. I’m outspoken, but I don’t ask people about their personal business. I know that Lisa’s doing just fine.
Are the rumors true that you rent your home?
What’s wrong with renting? Regardless of whether I rent or buy, I have to pay the bill. Nobody is giving me anything. In fact, this is a great time to rent.
So will you confirm whether you are renting?
I do not own the house that I currently live in. I’m doing a lease purchase.
Do you plan to stay in the house?
As a celebrity, I’m all over the place. I might end up leaving Atlanta.
What can we do to get you to stay?
You got to give me a check. I got to go where the checks are … I’m all over the place.
How do you respond to the stereotypes and criticism that you don’t represent housewives in Atlanta? I’m not trying to represent any one other than NeNe Leakes.
We reported on Friday that Jon and Kate Gosselin were involved in a heated argument that led the police to order Kate to leave her $1.1 million dollar home.
According to USmagazine, Kate returned to the house to be reunited with her kids and Jon. Even though they chatted briefly, the tension in the air was apparent. The kids didn’t look happy and one of the sextuplets was seen wiping her eyes.
Not long after she arrives, Jon drove away. The estranged couple have said they will trade off living in their estate depending on who has supervision of the children.
“It was a miscommunication. Kate said she was coming home, and I said, ‘Well, it’s my time to spend with the kids.’ I don’t come home when she’s with the kids, and vice versa — and that’s how it’s supposed to be,” Jon explained, adding that Kate tried to “cry it up” to convince the cop to let her stay.
In an interview, Jon said Kate didn’t approve of the nanny Stephanie Santoro (a 23-year-old single mother who also works as a “shooter girl” selling shots at local club Legends). Last week, we reported that the pair were caught canoodling.
“I guess she didn’t agree with my babysitting,” he admitted.
At this point, these two really need to put aside their childish attitudes and focus on the kids.
In the aftermath of a very public argument with wife Kate Gosselin, Jon Gosselin is now speaking out on what led to the cops being called. Jon says police made Kate leave their $1.1 million PA home Thursday night after a heated argument.
“She tried to come home yesterday, and I wouldn’t let her in the gate, and I guess she called the police,” Jon tells Splash News. “The police came and said it was a civil matter.”
Jon continues, “An officer pulled me aside and I said, ‘This has never happened before and I’m just trying to spend time with my kids and she’s [Kate] gonna have to leave.’”
Jon says Kate “tried to ‘cry it up’ with the cops and it didn’t work and they said, ‘You have to leave.’
“It was a miscommunication. Kate said she was coming home, and I said, ‘Well, it’s my time to spend with the kids,’” Jon goes on. “I don’t come home when she’s with the kids, and vice versa — and that’s how it’s supposed to be.”
When asked about the cause of the fight, Jon admits it had to do with his choice of babysitter. “I guess she didn’t agree with my babysitting,” Jon says of Kate. The babysitter in question is Stephanie Santoro, the same woman Jon is alleged to have slept with over a week ago.
I take it this is what happens when a child Jon decides it’s time to rebel against his mother Kate. Something tells me this will not end well.
