Sounds like the writers strike might be close to an end – there is a deal in the works

With the strike being over, that means more trash back on television.

It is tonight, at 9pm, eastern time. The twist this season is that they are going to be paired up and if one gets voted out, they both get voted out, or something like that.

I am pretty sure I know which B_ _ _ _ h you guys are referring to, but if she goes so does he, too bad. It's not his fault after all and he seems like a nice guy. She is acting like she has to marry the guy, not just pair up with him for a while. She needs to get over it and develop a team spirit with him. He probably is just as disappointed as she is, particularly after the first day with her

They'll be keeping that pair around for a while, because they are a "weak" pair. (Good strategy, if it is a fake-out)

That's what I was thinking as well. Unless she changes her attitude, they will not compete very well as a pair, so the others will get rid of the stronger ones first.

We watched it, and enjoyed it. I have missed all of our regular shows this year, so something new is nice. Of course the show isn't rocket science, but it beats watching another "Death Wish"

I enjoyed it as well. That blonde DEFINITLY should have not told her partner about her boyfriend on the show!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think she might have dug her own grave.

Well last night was a good one! Glad Jacob the idiot was outta there fast, but I have to ask, because I was multitasking....did he make up what he said someone said about Parker, or did someone really say it, and who was it?

The other shockeroo, was that the "grandma' seems to actually be mellowing..BUT her partner had his finger, in his nose, and teeth last night..

She may have been tactless and a whiner but, the guy is skeevy! And his remark was the kicker....Too bad evictions come as couples, and I bet this WILL change as the game progresses, BUT, he heeds to walk out the door!

I am surprised my hubby has gotten into it, except he is sick with the flu, so he might be just to drugged to get off the couch, and go into another room.

The guy that is with ma. His eyes give me the creeps. He looks that he is getting an exam by the proctologies all the time.

Trip,

I think Jacob made it up. He said in one of his private interviews, that he wanted to stir things up. I guess that was his way.

I'm not sure how much you guys know about Parker. He is a very rich kid. One of his photos sales for thousands of dollars. He freelances with TMZ, but works at photos to the highest bidder.

I just heard this:

Neil had an emergency back home or something. Josh got to pick between Jacob or Sharon coming in and taking Neil's place.
I know who he picked, but will with hold that info, unless you want to know, and I will tell you in a PM

This is part of a letter Autism United, has sent to CBS about Adam's insensitive comments.

We believe Jasinski's should be terminated immediately, and we believe that the show should be cancelled. Further, we expect an apology to people with autism, developmental disabilities and their families from Jasinski, Big Brother, CBS and National Amusements.

It will be interesting to see how the network addresses this issue, if they do at all, while the show is running, or will wait till it's over..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After last nights show, I hope Jen, gets a swift kick out the door. Although I do wish Parker was not saddled with her.

For a few seasons now, there have been various ,and secrets kept through out the season. I don't understand how the castmates can feel so betrayed about the couples...Look at last seasons, America's choice, Eric..his secret could have gotten him killed;):)

Default Surprises Surprises !!!

The "Big Brother" contestant, Adam, who referred to autistic children as "retards," even though he works with them at his job, has gotten axed from that job, reports the New York Post – though he doesn't know it yet. ...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope this will be a lesson learned for this tactless man.

Last night was sure an interesting show with both of those health issues. I wonder if they will allow Amanda off the slop due to her condition.

Does anyone know why Neil had to leave the show? From what I have heard, no one knows..BUT, somebody has to;)

I always worried about the whole slop thing. I thought is was incredibly unhealthy. They would almost have to let her off.

Last night's show was a first for several things. In the past, the contestants were never allowed to see anyone out side the house, unless on a special reward getaway.

I was not surprised about the health issues. I now belong to another site that openly talks about what is going on, before it is viewed.

I do not know why he left, but have heard several rumours.

Trip,

My info comes from several web sites. One is CBS.com/ Big Brother

The other is a site that studies Geology, and we have a chat section, where we can talk about anything. They are getting their info from the site above.

Be warned for anyone who sees this and decides to go there. These girls, this year are not angels. One has had multiple abortions, and is still lactating on the show. Sheila is a play mate, and you can see her worldly charms allll over the Internet. Her name is Sheila Kennedy.

There was a rip roaring party the other night on the live time Internet thing, where they all got down to their birthday suits, and played in the pool, with kissing involved.

Gone are the days, Big Brother had corn fed girls from the mid West.

I was actually surprised Ryan only got one vote.....But, Adam may rethink his donation, when he finds out, he was fired 3 months ago, for his disturbing remarks about those same kids.....

I hope next season, with the different age groups, will be more interesting.
The house will be totally different too...
