Not only was Big Brother 9 arguably one of the worst seasons of the show’s franchise but it also produced some of the show’s dumbest alums.
TMZ is now reporting that Matthew McDonald has pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone. And yes, this is in connection to the giant drug ring founded by his former BB costar and winner of season 9, Adam Jasinski.
Matthew had pleaded not guilty when he was first arrested back in April 2010. According to cops, the entire drug ring was funded with some of the $500,000 winnings of Adam.
Matthew will remain in custody until his April sentencing. His partner in crime Adam, who pleaded guilty last October, is scheduled for sentencing this Wednesday in a Massachusetts federal court.
Meanwhile, charges are still pending against Matthew for allegedly beating up his then pregnant girlfriend last April.
An update for the one to two Big Brother Brendon and Rachel fans out there. Apparently the two are still together, or were still together until this some drama broke out a few days ago.
A self proclaimed model named Molly M. Shephard posted photos of Brendon Villegas on Twitter Friday alleging he had been unfaithful to Rachel. The photos included webcam images of Brendon’s face and penis.
It all started when Rachel Reilly posted the following message on her twitter page Friday, “Laying in bed with my future husband!!! Life its goooood :)” The Molly chick then tweeted to Rachel – “@RachelEReilly then why’s your future boyfriend sending me naked pictures?” Rachel didn’t believe Molly as she replied back – “@mollymshephard future husband sister… And id treasure these “pics” cause its the closest you’ll ever get to MY MAN!!! In Your dreams!”
Molly’s tweets were then followed by two webcam photos of Brendon. One of his face and one of his penis. It seems Rachel must have recognized “her man’s” penis as she changed her tune. Rachel tweeted, “@mollymshephard look I don’t need u to be mean to me…. Just call me and tell me what happend dm ill give u my number ur mad but I’m the one that’s [getting] played like a fool.”
Brendon, 30, who has since deleted his twitter page, then issued a public apology to his lady Rachel. “I disgraced rachel and I am sorry to all. I had a skype relationship w/ another. I have never slept w/ anyone else no matter what Crazy says.” He later added,“I’m stupid, I’m an idiot, but I’m human. And humans mess up… I publicly embarrassed her and she is an amazing girl. I messed up big time.”
Molly, a 23-year-old model from California has since given an interview to TabloidProdigy.com during which she claims she had been seeing Brendon for two months and that the two had a sexual relationship. Molly added that she is also a victim because Brendon told her he was no longer with Rachel.
A photo of Molly is below as well as a screenshot of her DM messages with Rachel -

The Big Brother 12 finale aired last night with Hayden Moss, a 24 year-old college student from Tempe, AZ, winning the $500,000 prize!
In what made for a great TV moment, the deciding vote ended up in the hands of Enzo Palumbo, who ultimately had to decide which one of his Brigade alliance members should win the half a million dollar prize.
Despite being eliminated by Hadyen just moments earlier, Enzo voted Hayden to win the game, leaving Lane Elenburg as the runner up. Ragan was also revealed to be the second Saboteur, much to the shock of his fellow castmates. He won $20,000 for completing his two week saboteur duties, which might or might not have been rather lame.
American’s favorite houseguest award ended up going to Britney Haynes. Considering the sad news that the home Britney shared with her fiance Nick Grisham burned down just hours earlier, the $25,000 award definitely went to the person who needed it the most.
Britney, 22, seemed to be in good spirits last night upon hearing the sad news. “I heard about it like 10 minutes ago. I don’t know any details about it. Obviously the most important thing is everyone’s okay,” Britney told Zap2It.
Kristen also revealed on the show that she is now single, leaving the door open for a real life romance with Hayden. “Kristen’s a cool chick too … she’s a cool girl, she’s pretty, she’s attractive, she’s hot. We’ll see, I don’t know,” said Hayden to Zap2It.

What’s a reality star to do when their 15 minutes of fame comes to an abrupt end?
Well if you’re Michele Noonan from Big Brother 11, Heat from I Love New York, Pumkin from Flavor of Love or Dunbar from Real World: Sydney, you sign up for a Playboy reality TV show titled “Foursome.”

The meow meow aka Enzo Palumbo can only watch from the sidelines, and hope that one of his alliance members will take him to the finals.

Once the two finalists are announced, the jury members will get to question them live. Also coming up in the two hour finale, one of the Jury members will win the $25,000 America’s Favorite Houseguest prize. Voting officially ended for that on Monday.

The finale airs at 8/7c tonight on CBS, with the all new season of Survivorpremiering right after.
TELL US – WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN BIG BROTHER 12?
Last Thursday, Ragan Fox found himself the latest evicted houseguest from the Big Brother 12 house. The 34 year-old college professor from West Hollywood, CA saw his luck run out as he had no alliance members left in the game.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, Ragan discusses the difficulty of being the Saboteur, while he didn’t form any alliances, and why he wouldn’t be friends with Rachel, even on facebook. Excerpts are below -
Q: What was the hardest part of being a successful Saboteur? Did the guilt of sneaking around ever get to you?
Ragan: Hardest part was having the added stress of sabotage when my game play was falling apart. The Saboteur duties emerged the same week I split from Brendon and Rachel.
Q: You never seemed to form any strong alliances in the house. You were quick to make friendships, but no alliances. Was that strategy or was it necessity?
Ragan: Again, this was a season of friendships not alliances. Several times I tried to form alliances but it never panned out. When Kristen left I tried to scoop Hayden up, but by that point he was already really good friends with Enzo and Lane. I could have been in an alliance with Brendon and Rachel, but that would have involved being in an alliance with Brendon and Rachel — no thanks!
Q: When you suspected the guy’s alliance, why didn’t you follow your gut and try to call them out in front of the rest of the house?
Ragan: I had a hunch about the boy’s week three. The minute you start pointing a finger at people especially early in the game that’s when you form a target on your own back. So going after them early in the game meant they would have come after me early in the game.
Q: Going into a Jury House with Rachel and Brendon, what do you think your first words to them will be? You said your feelings for Brendon had “evolved.” Why? Do you think your feelings for Rachel will evolve as well?
Ragan: My feelings for Brendon have evolved because Rachel brings out the worst in Brendon. Once she left he was a much friendlier person. Regarding Rachel, my feelings have not evolved. I have no interest pursuing any type of relationship with her. I would not even be friends with her on Facebook — that request would be “denied.” First words will be, “Happy to see me?!”
On last night’s episode of Big Brother, we saw Britney get eliminated after being informed of the Brigade alliance. And just like that on of the Brigade douchebags members will win Big Brother 12. The 3-part HOH competition began last night, and tonight we will find out who won the first part.
TELL US – OF THE FINAL THREE BIG BROTHER CONTESTANTS, WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR?
Just days after agreeing to a chum bath, being handcuffed to a houseguest for 24 hours, and shaving his head,Brendon Villegas still found himself eliminated from theBig Brotherhouse following a double eviction.
In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, the 30 year-old high school swim coach from Riverside, CA, talks his ridiculous showmance with Rachel, what he hopes for their future, and who he thinks is playing the best game in the Big Brother house.
Excerpts from Brendon’s interview below -
Why, of all the houseguests, did you choose Britney to be handcuffed to? Game play or torture?
All game play — I thought I could potentially influence her as to who she puts up as replacement nominee. It was also a bit of torture.
Were you a little excited to be evicted, now that you can spend time alone with Rachel in the Jury House?
Sadly yes, I missed Rachel and I love her very much. Even though I was leaving the house, I was still extremely excited to be getting ready to see her. But I would still love to be playing the game.
Do you think you’ll be able to tell your kids that you met their mother in the BB house? Would you show them the video? Why, or why not?
I will definitely show them the video — just maybe in their teen years. And whenever our daughter is getting mouthy, I can show her the tape and tell her she gets it from her mom.
Who do you think is playing the best game so far? Where you surprise by the way that Britney and Ragan stood up to you? Lane is playing the best game so far. I don’t agree with his style, but he’s managed to stay in for while under the radar. Britney and Ragan — I was a little surprised, but when they did that it made for a bigger explosion and made everyone realize that maybe it’s not a good idea to keep me in the house.
