Branden Mathena aka Chi chi from Daisy of Love is talking about his time and dismissal from show. In this new interview with VH1, Chi chi remains positive when talking about his friendship with Sinister, his feelings towards Daisy and being called “creepy” by others.
How was the show for you?
It was fun. It was the best time of my life. I loved it.
Daisy was afraid that keeping you and Sinister on the show together was driving a stake through your friendship. Did you two reconcile?
Yeah, right away. We’re best friends. We live together. We’ve been best friends for years. We’ve lived together for a while.
Nothing that he said ever took a toll on your friendship?
No, he never really upset me. I respect him for his opinion. I know he’s my best friend, so we’re just honest with each other. All you can do is be honest. You can’t help the way you feel inside. When I watch the show – we watch it together every Sunday – it’s like he’s throwing me under the bus and making fun of me and stuff, and I’m like, “Wow, dude.” ‘Cause I would never say nothing bad about anybody so I’m just like, “Wow, that’s just gonna make you look bad, idiot.”
It’s funny that you came off as one of the most sensitive guys on the show, yet unlike so many of the others, you didn’t really cry after you were eliminated.
Yeah, I wasn’t crying in the bathroom either, they edit that stuff. But yeah, I was just happy for Daisy, and I respect her decision. Like I said before: you can’t help the way you feel inside, and if you’re honest, people shouldn’t judge you. I just want the best for her. I just want her to be happy.
