It was quite the dramatic day in the Celebrity Big Brother house. We had Shannon and Omarosa making up and Omarosa pledging to get the girl power back in the house. And then we get how that’s going to apparently happen by Omarosa calling out James, working to get the target on him. At least I think that’s why this all happened, but you can never be sure with Big Brother, especially when Omarosa is in the house.
I’ll let you decide. Check out what when down today. We’ve got the moments recapped for you here, but it’s worth a watch also, if you missed it. Timestamps are there to help you with that.
Flashback to 9:59 AM BBT – Shannon and Omarosa hug. “The one thing I want you to know is I was fighting for Keshia to go the whole time,” Shannon tells Omarosa. Shannon says she was worried about Metta because he said he was after Shannon and James, meaning she was never really worried about Omarosa.
Shannon says Keshia was who they thought was the threat. Omarosa asks Shannon if they can start fresh and get things back the way they were because she doesn’t want a man to win. She tells Shannon she wants her to win the veto and stay. Omarosa tells her that James has the boys, Marissa and Ross (because Ross apparently isn’t a boy). “Can we just squash everything?” Omarosa asks. Shannon agrees.
Shannon then says if she doesn’t win today there aren’t enough votes for her to stay. Omarosa says there will be if she talks to Brandi and Ari because they’re pissed at Ross and Marissa right now. Omarosa again says that as mad as she’s been at Shannon, she’s still fighting for a girl to win. “It would be so stupid … we cannot go out like that as women. It would be so embarrassing,” Omarosa says. They apologize and hug again and agree to start fresh. Shannon says she made a lot of mistakes in the game.
Jump to 10:16 AM BBT – Shannon goes to talk to Brandi. They compare notes on Ross and Marissa working with James. But Brandi says she’s still not sure what they can trust coming from Omarosa. Brandi is worried about listening to Omarosa too much. Shannon tells Brandi that Omarosa still seems like she’s still into the girl power idea. Shannon tells Brandi that if she stays she will nominate who they want if she wins HOH.
10:22 AM BBT – Marissa tells Ari that she doesn’t think James is as big a threat, but if that’s who they want to go she’s fine with it. She says these are the people that have to go: Shannon, James, Mark and Omarosa. Marissa says if Omarosa goes soon that’s fine because she’s making everything so wacky. Omarosa comes in and fills Ari and Marissa in on her conversation with Shannon. Omarosa tells them that Shannon asked if Marissa and Ross have a deal with James. Marissa gets irritated by that. Brandi comes in the room and Omarosa asks that if Shannon stays and wins HOH is she going after the boys or coming for them? No one knows, they agree.
10:28 AM BBT – Marissa goes to get Ross and James and asks them to come to the Tiffany’s room. She says it’s already blown up (apparently things were going down while cams were on Shannon putting on her mic and sitting staring at the fish).
Shannon goes to eavesdrop and can hear them talking to James. The camera finally gives us a view inside the Tiffany’s room where James is explaining himself to Omarosa and the others. Omarosa says he’s telling others things she didn’t actually say. James says he hasn’t lied this whole time and they can all go back and watch this later and see. James says that Omarosa told him the everyone switched and are voting him out, even Ross and Marissa. Omarosa says she didn’t say that. James says he’s not going to perpetrate drama. Everyone starts talking over each other while Omarosa tries to dig herself out of it. She also is trying to make it all heated, but James said he doesn’t want to argue. Omarosa keeps cutting James off and he says if she was worried about the truth she wouldn’t be cutting him off.
James leaves the room and Omarosa continues to explain herself. She asks Ross and Marissa what they told him. They say they told him he was safe, because that’s what they told them to say. Marissa says she has zero deals with James. Ross says none of this matters and they’re going at it for nothing. Brandi says Omarosa ran to James to cover her ass. Omarosa says she’s not on the block, so she doesn’t have to cover her ass. Ross tells Brandi and Marissa “don’t let it happen.” Omarosa asks what that means. What I think he means don’t fall for Omarosa’s psychological games. Omarosa says, “OK if you guys are all teaming up against me, should I go work with the guys?” She says she wants girl power, but they obviously don’t.
Omarosa goes out to the kitchen and tells James that attacking her while he’s on the block is dumb because she’s a vote. He says he’s not even attacking her and asks if she’s putting on a show for the cameras. James tells her that the game she’s playing is working because she’s not on the block right now. Everyone kind of breaks up and the drama scatters to brief moments here and there later.
So it seems Omarosa might really be wanting James out this week, even though a little later she’s ready to send Shannon out again. Who knows what will actually happen eviction night, especially since they’ve still got the Power of Veto to play. This should be interesting, regardless.
