Afternoon Smackdown - House v Michele &
The Pursuit of Kevin's Vote Against Lydia
Encouraged by Natalie and Jessie, Russell decides to call a house meeting to confront Michele on her lies.
3:41 PM BBT
Russell: I just want everyone to know and the events that are taking place. My game is over. I am leaving next time. Michele took me out. She told me that she was sorry for throwing me under the bus and that she was going to stick up for me, and that she will get votes. Later that night we were talking and we were talking about concussions and the effects on the brain, she told Chima that we were talking about erectile dysfunction, and she said that it was a joke. Jeff asked why she would say that. I want to say to Ronnie I apologize. Chima, I apologize, I shouldn't have taken a run at you. You are a beautiful woman and your story is inspiring. (paraphrasing) I don't harbor personal ill will.
Michele: I appreciate that you held this meeting to throw the target off you and Ronnie and onto me. I thought it was funny that the last thing we were talking about sexual dysfunction and I thought it was funny.
Ronnie: I didn't hear that... You said...
Russell: Let someone else speak.
Ronnie: You called everyone a liar and you're a liar.
Russell: Jeff was there. Let Jeff speak.
Jeff: I don't want to throw anyone under that bus. All I said that she doesn't need to fuel the fire because there is bad blood between them
Michele: I was upset about being yelled at.
Russell brings up the Green Room incident.
Michele: I did not go into the Green room and that's bullsh*t.
Russell: She said she did say that and that's speculation.
Michele: No I didn't say those things. You can switch the words.
Chima: I have heard so many things about what you said behind my back. I tend to believe Michele. I have heard from other people opposite to what you have said. I never said that I would backdoor you, but as it is I would put you up.
Michele: I said that people see you as a threat, and people will want to back door you. I didn't say Chima was campaigning to back door you. That Green Room story is a complete fabrication. You told me tell everybody that it was true.
Chima: I have good stories of your fabrication. I am not about to throw people under the bus. Those people are telling the truth, and you are the one who's lying. Because of the character assassinations, I will go ahead to believe her over you.
Russell: You are not allowing me to defend myself.
Chima: Michele is not telling me these things.
Russell: But this is personal stuff.
Chima: Supposedly, Michele came out and said to you, that she did want to upset me in the room, and she said that you were in fact a liar, and that you have his back. Why did you say that?
Michele: Because I didn't want him to make up lies about me.
Chima: That doesn't make sense. Basically you made up lies to ... what?
Natalie: You have Russell's back that you will get votes for him. So basically you are playing both sides.
Chima: Which side are you on?
Michele: I'm on your side and...
Michele: We can talk about it.
Chima: We talk about it now.
Natalie: I heard in the Green Room you telling Kevin that you would put up Jeff and Jessie.
Michele: That's a lie. I said Jeff because I wanted to throw him off, and I told Jeff I did that.
Kevin: I'm not getting involved in this.
Michele: I'm sorry everyone is this house...
Chima: I'm sorry. Not everyone in the house has lied.
Natalie and Michele start a screaming match about who is lying.
Natalie: I don't have an allegiance to anyone but Jessie. You have an allegiance to everybody.
Michele: You two are running the house.
Natalie: You're the rat. Did Russell lie? Yes because of you!
Michele: No I do not make up stories!
**I can't keep up with this. There are too many people talking and yelling and talking all over the place.
SPARK UP THE FEEDS!
Explosions all over the place.
Immediately following the attack on Michele, here's Natalie...
Mission Character Assassination Accomplished!
or so she thinks...
Russell, Jeff & Jordan
Jeff: If you lie you get caught, she f'd herself over.
Jeff still thinks they are trying to get Ronnie off. He still thinks Ronnie is the rat. Jordan wonders why Michele said she would put up Jeff. Jeff says that Michele told him already and that he thinks she's trying to strategize by telling little lies to outsmart them but it's not and coming back at her.
Jeff: Michele isn't as smart as she thinks, and Jordan isn't as dumb as everyone else thinks.
Russell: She has a Ph.D. She's smart.
Jeff: Having a Ph.D. means nothing in this game.You need street smarts and she doesn't have them. Michele is trying to strategize, but doesn't know how to. She tells little lies, tries to outsmart people. I don't care if she has her PhD, she's not that smart.
Russell: Sorry Jeff, for bringing you into that
Jeff: Ronnie isn't even that smart either, he's just good at speaking. He doesn't know how many quarters go in a dollar. Nobody asks for my opinions, and I like that, but here they are: Jordan is smarter than people think she is, and Mich isn't as smart as people think she is. You gotta watch what you say, because eventually people become friends again, and you get caught. You cant run away.
Natalie comes out and says there is a fight going on inside with Michele and Kevin.
4:25 PM BBT
Chima & Michele
They are doing much to repair their relationship. Chima tells her that this whole thing has made her not trust Michele. But they seem to be coming to a place of understanding.
Chima: Why did you try to get close to Russell? Michelle: I just wanted to get close to him because I thought everyone in the house was close to him. Chima: It doesn't matter because he doesn't have power next week. You are furthering his cause.
Michele: I really haven't been spending time with him. It's been mostly with jeff and Jordan.
Chima is warning Mich not to trust Russ.
Michele: I figured it out when Russell leaked my PHD story to everyone.
Chima: I thought you and I are tight. If I feel I am being lied to by you, I will confront you. I call people out to see who's lying.
More rehashing of what was said by who when. Chi seems to still not trust Russ and says he has her eyes on him.
Chima: When Russell attacks and attacks, I feel like he's lying. I used to only not trust Russell, but now I have doubts about you.
Michele: I don't have a good memory and I'm not a good public speaker and they use that against me. I can't remember stuff to call them on.
Chima: That sounds like an excuse but I want to believe you. My instincts tell me to believe you.I understand why you were trying to align with Russell.
Michele: I trusted him but I was wrong.
**Folks. This is ongoing. SPARK UP the feeds! and if you don't have them! Get' em! :)
Cam 1 & 2
Natalie, Jessie, Chima , Kevin
Lydia joins, then Michele, then Jeff...
They're on a roll today, so they launch straight into an attempt to get Kevin to vote Lydia out by telling him Lydia sold him out to everyone regarding the chess moves...
Natalie, Chima and Jessie are working overtime to keep Ronnie...
BB intereferes and calls Lydia to the DR to give them a better chance at it.
Natalie: Lydia threw you under the bus, ran you over and back again. It was just out of nowhere... thinking Jessie's not gonna tell me. I said, did Kevin really say, the King and the Queen have got to go...
Chima: And when Jessie said that to me, I was like What?!
Jessie: She didn't. She told us what you said. You have selective memory, selective hearing.. You wanna hear only what you want and create your own reality...
This is ongoing, and they are working hard!!!!
Thrilled to have the spotlight off of her so quickly, Michele is participating and adding pieces of information to fuel to the fire... Accusing Kevin of lying to all of them, and telling all of them that Kevin and Lydia had approached her for an alliance to eliminate the athletes....
Spark up the feeds, folks! If you don't have them, the free trial link's at the bottom of the post.
Jeff & Ronnie
With the others working on his behalf in the Haves Room, Ronnie goes to work for himself a bit when Jeff leaves to use the bathroom.
Ronnie: If you and Jordan would vote for me, or just one of you, then next week it would be Kevin and Russell on the block...
Jeff: But your 1st allegiance is not to me, it's to them.
Ronnie: Honestly, I'm completely open to negotiation.
Jeff: You could be the f'in wizard for all I know.
Ronnie: You'll see tomorrow night that I'm not. And if you'll vote for me, then I can convince them too too (Jessie, Natalie, Chima - who are pretending they're voting him out). I should have come to you like a man..
Jeff: Alright, I listen. That's all I can do. We'll see man.
Ronnie: Thanks, Jeff.
Return to the Haves Room
Natalie, Jessie, Chima, Kevin...
All 4 feeds
The onslaught on Kevin continues. They're doing their level best to get him to turn on Lydia, but he's feeling attacked as well, so... either they need to put their kid gloves on and massage the boy, or they're not going to win him over.
Natalie is the ringleader on this one, and she is on her topic like a pitbull on steak.
Lydia & Kevin
Lydia's upset they're trying to take away her one friend in the house. Kevin says they are, but it wont work... He gives her the details of the crusade he was just witness to... Lydia wants to confront Chima... and Michele...
She's very upset and completely forgets herself in her grief...
A picture's worth a thousand words...
The live feeds are worth more.
Chima, Natalie, Ronnie
They're planning the next wave of assaults...
Buckle up, dishers! It's gonna be a bumpy night on the live feeds. Ronnie will not go quietly into that dark night.
More whispering about plans for the next wave...
Natalie, Chima, Ronnie
Natalie: I wanna go back in and re-do my DR message. I thought of more things.
Thank God for Jeff & Jordan
When the rest of the house has gone completely mad, and they still are, by the way, Jeff and Jordan remain sane, loving and adorable.
