Big Brother's Britney Haynes recently shared the above picture of daughter Tilly, who is currently battling cancer, "Happy four month birthday to the sweetest, bravest, most amazing little girl in the world. You make my heart full!"
Tilly's cancer diagnosis leaked out before Britney was ready for the attention, sadly, but she ultimately decided to start the blog Together for Tilly for friends, family, and fans to stay up to date on Tilly's journey.
"My little girl was 7 weeks and 1 day old when we rushed her to the ER," shared Britney. "We had been making regular visits to the pediatrician for weeks trying to figure out why she seemed so unwell. I researched like a crazy person for answers, but everything that I found pointed to normal baby behavior and I was constantly reassured she would grow out of this fussy phase. I held onto those words while we waited for answers. We found out at 4 a.m. on Labor Day that she had cancer."
Sad news for Big Brother fans. Britney Haynes, who appeared on BB12 and BB14, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Tilly Elizabeth, on July 13. Two weeks ago, Britney and her husband, Ryan Godwin, learned Tilly has cancer.
Before tweeting the above message, Britneyshared on Facebook, "On September 1st, we were among the daily 720 sets of parents to be absolutely devastated with a Childhood Cancer diagnosis. September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Please take the time to pray for all these children, our sweet baby included. We appreciate each and every one."
The Big Brother 12 lackluster season finally comes to an end tonight!
One of the three remaining finalists/Brigade alliance members will win the ultimate $500,000 prize. With Hayden Moss and Lane Elenburg winning part one and two of the final HOH competition, the last part will be played live tonight, determining the ultimate HOH champion.
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. However, Hayden and Lane made a final two deal before the HOH competition even began. Will they keep their word? Or will one of them take Enzo to the finals? We will find out tonight.
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. How priceless will the looks on the HGs faces be if Brendon or Rachel ended up winning the prize?
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?
Bringing you the week 8 spoilers in the Big Brother house.
Thursday night brought us Ragan’s eviction. Though he was able to figure out the Brigade alliance, it was simply too late for him, as losing the POV competition to Enzo all but sealed his faith.
The live episode ended with the Big Brother house-guests playing a new HOH competition. In this week’s spoilers, find out the new HOH, their nominees, and the POV winner who will determine the HG to go home on Thursday.
Thursday night’s double eviction had HG Matt as the first casualty. The HOH competition was played live with Hayden becoming the new HOH, beating Brendon by a couple of seconds. Hayden nominated Brendon and Ragan, with Brendon being ultimately evicted, thus basically guaranteeing one of the Brigade douchebags will win BB12.
Following the TV episode, a new HOH was crowned during a later competition. In this week’s spoilers, find out the new HOH, their nominees, and the POV winner!
Below is a photo of Enzo and his wife. I did a little digging as I was a tad curious to see which lucky lady calls herself Mrs. Meow Meow. The lucky one who owns that title is Joella Palumbo, who Enzo has described as being loaded and earning over 6 figures on the live feeds.
First, we saw Kathy, who might or might not be one of the worst players in Big Brother history, get sent home Thursday night after Matt used the Diamond power of veto, thus putting her up for eviction.
Kathy seemed to take things in stride in her post interview with Julie Chen, however expressing regret that she never had the chance to campaign for votes.
Following the eviction, Britney was crowned the new HOH and in this week’s spoilers, we reveal Britney’s nominees, the POV winner, and the plan by the HGs to backdoor a member of the Brigade.
Rachel Reilly, a 26 year-old chemistry graduate student/VIP cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, NV, found herself the latest houseguest to be eliminated from Big Brother 12.
Rachel, the winner of two HOH competitions was ultimately sent home for being both a threat and an annoying HG. Rachel was a target from the start due to her quick developing showmance with Brendon, and success at competitions. In a new interview with PEOPLE, she discusses being eliminated, her future with ‘her man’ Brendon, and what she thinks of the other players.
Excerpts from Rachel’s interview below (Note: this interview was done before Rachel’s return to the house) -
Brendon went on the offensive to keep you in the house. He threw away his chances at half a million dollars for you. If your feelings for him were so strong, why didn’t you try to stop him, or at least make the same offer to him?
I did try to stop him. I did make him the same offer. He and I discussed which one of us we wanted to keep in the game when we knew that one of us was going home. It was a mutual decision. He told me he wanted to do it and NOT to stop him.
You were such a strong player, and Brendon couldn’t seem to pull his weight. Do you think Brendon let you down when it mattered the most?
He didn’t let me down, but I wish he would have won.
With each eviction, your outgoing message was: “Ain’t nobody getting between me and my man!” Do you think the showmance blinded you to a point? Why do you think that people were trying to break you up rather than playing the game?
I don’t think they were trying to break us up. I think they were trying to break up our strong alliance because we were both strong players. I still don’t want anyone getting between me and my man!
You said that you are Vegas, but Brendon was going to give up a chance at half a million for you. Would you have given up Vegas for Brendon?
It would be really hard to move to L.A., but it would also be really hard to not be with Brendon. Mostly, it would be hard to leave Vegas, but I think I could do it.
How strong is the bond that you and Brendon have? He said that you could be the mother of his children, do you agree?
We have a very strong bond. I think that we have a very good future ahead of us. Keep your eyes out.
What was your biggest mistake? How did it affect your game? Knowing what you know now, would you have not gotten involved in a showmance that alienated the rest of the house?
I think that I should have kept Kristen and Hayden. Kristen would have eventually turned on me, but I think that it would have bought me a few more weeks in the house. No — I trusted Brendon more than I trusted the rest of the houseguests. He would have always been loyal to me when the rest of the houseguests were only out for themselves.
You said that you thought everyone could be “playing harder”, who is playing the strongest game so far, and why?
Matt and I were playing the strongest games. We were the only ones that were not scared to win and to play. We weren’t scared to make decisions.
Tonight’s episode of Big Brother should be epic as Matt will likely be using his Diamond power of veto to get himself off the block. Since he won’t be putting up any of his Brigade members, it’s likely Kathy or Britney will be his replacement nominee.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON RACHEL’S INTERVIEW? WHO SHOULD MATT PUT UP TONIGHT? WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE REGAN/RACHEL SHOWDOWN?
Good news and bad news for Big Brother fans this past week. The good news isRachel Reilly got sent home and we no longer have to wear ear plugs when listening to her diary room sessions. The bad news? We still need the ear plugs to listed to Hayden.
Despite her man Brendon’s attempt at causing drama to get people to vote him off, Rachel was voted out by a vote of 6 – 0. We are now down to the final 8, and Rachel’s eviction makes her the first juror member of the season.
What’s most surprising this season is that we are in the 6th week and the HGs are still completely unaware of the four-man Brigade alliance. I predicted the Brigade alliance would be one of the dumbest in BB history a few weeks ago (can you blame me? Meow Meow?) but it seems I was way off as they are still a secret, or perhaps this is just the dumbest BB cast in the show’s history as an alliance of 4 men has gone completely undetected in a span of over 6 weeks.
But could the Brigade alliance be finally crumbling? A lot to report in today’s spoilers, find out the new HOH, nominees and POV winner. Plus an evicted HG returns to the house! Can you guess who?
