Celebrity Big Brother Recap: An Unlikely Victory

Did anyone ever tell Brandi Glanville that she needs to keep her mouth shut if she wants to make it far in Celebrity Big Brother?

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star continued to turn her mouth on the latest episode of the CBS hit, and it may have cost her the $250,000 grand prize. 

Julie Chen Waves Big Brother Flag

When the episode kicked off, we learned that Metta wanted to leave the game just hours before Friday's live eviction. Omarosa begged her friend to stay in the house. 

But he wanted to go, and she had no choice but to grant his wish.

In the aftermath, a new alliance that included Mark, James, Marissa, and Ross was born. The latter two are determined to work both sides of the house. 

It's going to come back to bite them soon enough, but for now, they are part of The Roomie Squad. Yes, we're not even kidding about that name. 

James Maslow Is Cool

It was the best of a bad bunch. 

James admitted to his new alliance that leaving Omarosa in the game, and splitting up Marissa and Ariadna would be the best course of action. 

This created conflict for Ross because he knows Omarosa is gunning for him. But what can he do to change things up? 

When it came to the HOH competition, the houseguests had to make their way across a red carpet and hold on for dear life. It came down to James and Mark. 

James allowed Mark to take the win because it meant he could play in the next competition, and it did not go unnoticed with Brandi. 

Brandi Glanville, Big Hair

She wasted no time in running her mouth and calling Mark and James out. If you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know to reach for the popcorn when Brandi is clutching a bottle of red wine. 

While Ross, Ariadna, and Marissa stayed out of the conversation, they seemed to distance themselves from Brandi because they knew her game was combusting before their eyes. 

At the nominations ceremony, Mark nominated Brandi and Ari for eviction. Brandi was thrown up because she had been trying to get James out the house, and Ari was guilty by association. 

Brandi Cleavage

The true test for Marissa and Ross will come when it comes down to putting up a replacement nominee. They could show their hand and turn on one of their alliances. 

They are playing a dangerous game, and it looks like things are going to get crazy as the next eviction looms.

Okay, what do you think will happen? Does Brandi have any fight left in her?

Celebrity Big Brother continues Friday with a double eviction!

Celebrity Big Brother Spoilers: Who Won Veto? Who Is Going Home?

It's been a tense few days in the Big Brother house ever since American Pie actress, Shannon Elizabeth was nominated alongside Big Time Rush star James Maslow. 

With the pair growing closer, the target on both of them has ballooned of late, and with Ariadna Gutiérrez in power, they were both sent to the block at the nominations ceremony. 

Shannon Elizabeth On Celebrity Big Brother

Brandi Glanville, Omarosa, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Ross Matthews have been gunning to get Shannon out of the house for about a week now, and they got closer to their plan over the last few days. 

Before we got to the Veto competition, Omarosa started chatting with Shannon about where they both went wrong in the game. It resulted in the two ladies making up with each other. 

Omarosa then agreed to try and find a way to save Shannon from eviction. The reason? Omarosa has been vocal that she does not want the men to rule the game, and she fears that is about to happen. 

Omarosa Manigault

Despite Omarosa's pleas, everyone seemed against the idea of saving Shannon from elimination. The common consensus in the house is that Shannon is going to win if she sticks around. 

Ari, James, Shannon, Ross, Omarosa, and Brandi. It was the Black Box competition that found the houseguests performing a solo task inside a dark room. 

James secured the veto win, and it seemed to secure Shannon's fate as the next evicted houseguest. Last night, however, Brandi (of all people!) started to wonder whether it was really worth sending Shannon home. 

James Maslow Poses

This seemed brought on by the way James was parading around the house boasting that he won a competition. James even floated the idea of using the Veto on Shannon if he had the votes to stay in the game. 

Brandi headed to bed, but not before she told Shannon she might have a plan to save her. Yes, we are very shocked to hear this, and so was Ari. Ari tried to shut Brandi down, but if you watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills online, you will know there is no way to stop Brandi from talking. 

With that, Metta even offered Shannon to work with her if she miraculously stayed in the game. That's huge, but we'll need to tune in on Friday to find out what James does with the Veto. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

There's also the possibility that viewers will be voting instead of the house during Friday's eviction. Julie Chen confirmed on Monday that viewers would be voting on a game-changing twist shortly. 

Shannon is likely a big draw for the show, so we would not put it past the producers to try and keep her in the game. She and Omarosa rising to power would make for a fun second half of the season. 

What do you think of the latest round of Big Brother spoilers?

Sound off below. 

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Brandi Glanville Go Too Far?!

Keshia Knight Pulliam may have left the Big Brother house on Monday night, but we got more insight than ever before into her big decision to get the house to send her packing. 

We flashed back to the hours leading up to the eviction, and Keshia revealed all to her alliance about the depleted breast milk. It was the first time we have ever witnessed an expression on Brandi Glanville's face. 

Ross Matthews, Shannon Elizabeth

She was annoyed because this was supposed to be the time to send Shannon Elizabeth out in a backdoor eviction. Brandi ran her mouth like she was still on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, before ultimately making peace with the decision. 

Before the HOH competition got underway, Brandi chatted about the way she spoke to Keshia and said she knew that they would be friends when they reunited on the outside. 

Yeah, you keep telling yourself that, Brandi. This is a game, and it should not be made personal. Brandi has been catty all season long and has wanted to get Shannon out for no apparent reason. 

Brandi Cleavage

Shannon seemed confused about why Keshia was trying to blow her game up during her eviction speech. Those who thought Shannon Elizabeth was a great player should probably exit stage left. 

During the HOH competition, Shannon took an early lead, and everyone aside from James looked annoyed. As soon as Ariadna emerged victoriously from the competition, everyone was a little too excited for her. 

That did not do much to make Shannon's paranoia disappear. She knew there was some backstab in the works, and that's why she tried to speak to her supposed allies about what was coming. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

However, her allies made sure Ariadna was never alone without either Omarosa or Metta, and that made it difficult for Shannon to get an answer. 

Before the nominations ceremony, the penny dropped for Shannon that she would never find a role as big as the one she had in American Pie. We're totally kidding about that last part. 

Shannon figured it all out and said some words right before Ariadna confirmed who was on the block. Brandi countered that Shannon was cutting deals with the others. 

Ariadna Gutierrez Poses

Shannon balked at this idea and was subsequently put on the block next to James. It looks like Shannon's time in the Big Brother house is coming to a dramatic close!

In any case, it looks like the producers are trying to give Shannon another chance. The reason? A game-changing vote is coming our way in the next few days. 

Wouldn't it be great if it affected the next eviction? What if the viewers could vote instead of the house?

Shannon Elizabeth Smiles

That would shake things up and give Shannon a fighting chance. 

What do you think about all of this?

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Shannon Elizabeth Get Blindsided?

There was a lot at stake for the houseguests on the latest episode of Celebrity Big Brother. 

When the episode got underway, Omarosa and Keshia were on the block and wondering which one of them would be exiting the house. 

Julie Chen Evicts a Celebrity

While it seemed like one of those two houseguests were leaving, Ross, Brandi, Ariadna, and Marissa floated the idea of evicting Shannon via the back door. 

This was fueled by paranoia because everyone was growing concerned that Shannon was getting closer and closer to working with James. 

Not helping matters was Omarosa, who was vocal to Ross about not being mad that he threw her up on the block. 

Omarosa Manigault

Omarosa knows how to manipulate situations, and that's why she's such a big threat. She and Shannon are about as scary as each other. 

The odd thing about all of it was that Marissa was getting excited about the prospect of even taking Shannon out. They knew each other before the game, but they don't seem actually to like each other. 

“I really Rthought that we would make it to the end together,” Marissa said of Shannon. “I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but I want to backdoor Shannon.”

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

The veto competition played out live, and Marissa slid into victory. Just when we thought that Shannon might be getting put on the block, everything changed. 

Keshia was missing her child and decided the game was too much for her to deal with. She made an emotional plea to Marissa to keep the nominations the same. 

Somehow, news of Shannon being backdoored was doing the rounds, and everyone thought it was going to come to fruition.

Eviction 2 Votes:

  • Shannon Elizabeth votes to evict: Keshia
  • Ariadna Guiterrez votes to evict: Keshia
  • Brandi Glanville votes to evict: Keshia
  • James Maslow: votes to evict: Keshia
  • Mark McGrath votes to evict: Keshia
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur votes to evict: Keshia
  • Metta World Peace votes to evict: Keshia

Keshia is the second evicted houseguest! 

Keshia Knight Pulliam, Pre-Baby

Omarosa can breathe a sigh of relief, but will she be able to get the houseguests on her side to try and get Shannon out?

We have no idea, but something tells us the producers will be glad Omarosa is still inside the house.  She is TV gold. 

We still have another two weeks left with the houseguests, so the evictions will likely be ramped up to leave us with our final three. 

Shannon should watch her back because Omarosa is going to be gunning for her in retaliation for everything that transpired between them. 

What did you think of the episode?

Sound off below. 

Celebrity Big Brother continues Wednesday night on CBS. 

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Who Is HOH? Who Is the Target?!

The inaugural edition of Celebrity Big Brother is well underway, and things are getting crazier by the day inside the most famous home on television. 

When the episode got underway, we found out that Keshia and Omarosa were not impressed with the last-minute vote flip that sent Chuck Liddell out of the house. 

Omarosa, Celebrity Big Brother Season 1

We flashed back to right before the eviction and Ross, Marissa, Shannon and James agreed to join a Final 4 alliance that would help them in the game. 

However, Ross revealed in the diary room that it would be better to confirm he is in the alliance, but he's not definite on whether to stay with the alliance. 

Omarosa was ready to lose it with Shannon because she was left out of the last-minute flip, and the two women got ready to have it out with each other. 

Omarosa Manigault

Omarosa knew there was no way that Marissa or Brandi could spearhead such a move, and that meant Shannon was the next person in line. Shannon was forced to confirm the truth about her deal with Omarosa to the rest of the group. 

When Shannon came clean, it meant the target on her ballooned to dizzying heights because they knew they would need to get her out of the house in a swift manner. 

In a sad turn of events, Metta was confused about the eviction process and actually sent home Chuck instead of saving him. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

Shannon then started chatting about what she wanted to do about Omarosa, and Omarosa heard all about it. She said that Shannon was being sketchy and tried to find a way to sort it out. 

In the end, Ross came out top trumps and won the HOH competition. 

Tensions flared up in the aftermath of the HOH competition when Omarosa disappeared. She went to the hospital because she had to get checked out for an asthma attack. 

Ross felt like the safest option was to throw Omarosa and Keshia up on the block because that's what the house wanted. 

Omarosa did not want to hear the speech, so she told Ross to forget about it. She was over playing nice and wanted to proceed with the game. 

Keshia Knight Pulliam, Pre-Baby

Keshia was unimpressed because the female alliance had fallen apart, and wondered whether her days in the game were numbered as a result. 

There's a good chance Shannon could find herself up on the block because the POV is playing out live right before an eviction. 

That would give her no time to dig her heels in and get the votes. 

What do you think of all the drama?

Who will leave?

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Who Was Evicted?

We think it's fair to say that Celebrity Big Brother has brought the drama throughout its first week on the air. 

We've had Brandi Glanville causing trouble, Omarosa wailing to Ross Matthews about how she would never vote for Donald Trump again and a big twist that allowed the head of household to be overthrown. 

James Maslow, Chuck Liddell

The first big event of the episode was the Power of Veto competition, and if you've been keeping up with our Big Brother spoilers, you will already know how that played out. 

Keshia, James, and Chuck were players by default. Mark and Ari were picked by random draw, and Keshia chose Shannon to help her try and keep the nominations the same. 

Omarosa was tasked with hosting the competition that found the houseguests spelling the biggest word. Shannon emerged as the winner, successfully spelling out "responsibilities."

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

That means Shannon won the first two competitions of the season and needs to dial it back a little if she has any hope of making it much further. 

Proving to be a competition beast in week one can be detrimental to your place in the game. It's a good thing Shannon is in that all-female alliance because they should all keep each other safe. 

James and Ari came in the last place in the competition, so they had to wear baby costumes for 48 hours. They came to play Big Baby, it seems. 

James Maslow Is Cool

The nominations were kept the same, meaning James or Chuck would be going home. This meant James was the likely one to go, but there were some last-minute discussions that made everyone question the target. 

Eviction One Votes:

  • Brandi Glanville votes to evict: Chuck
  • Ariadna Guiterrez votes to evict: Chuck
  • Omarosa votes to evict: James
  • Ross Mathews votes to evict: Chuck
  • Metta World Peace votes to evict: Chuck
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur votes to evict: Chuck
  • Shannon Elizabeth votes to evict: Chuck
  • Mark McGrath votes to evict: Chuck

By a vote of 7-1, Chuck was the first houseguest evicted from Celebrity Big Brother!

Chuck Liddell

He was furious, but it was a last-minute blindside that will likely come back to haunt some of the players. 

Omarosa voting to evict James seemed like a strategic move to cause some unrest in the all-female alliance. It seems a bit early to be doing that, but we all knew she would be causing as much trouble as possible. 

The power is back up for grabs, and we cannot wait to see who has been crowned the next HOH. The results and should be announced today at some point. 

Omarosa Manigault

Big Brother continues Sunday on CBS. 

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Was the Recast Twist Used?

Julie Chen always says to "Expect the unexpected" when it comes to twists on Big Brother. 

The celebrity edition of the hit series is no different, and we picked up with Shannon Elizabeth's big win becoming a big question mark. 

Celebrity Big Brother Competition

That was because one houseguest had the power to overthrow her as Head of Household if they had the right swag in their golden bag. 

“Normally, I give my gift bags to my housekeeper because it’s full of crap, but this one I might actually want,” said Brandi with a grin. This woman is not pleasant. 

The women worried that their grip on power in the house was drawing to a close, so they reeled Ross Matthews into their alliance. 

For those keeping score at home, a 7-person alliance almost never works. But maybe the women and Ross can prove otherwise. 

Omarosa Manigault

In a surprising turn of events, Mark offered Shannon to be a pawn, and that made things a whole lot easier for her when it came to nominating houseguests for eviction. 

Metta already wanted to go home, so the ladies realized they could throw him up, and if the opportunity presented itself, they could backdoor James and send him out of the house first. 

Marisa decided against using the recast twist, and it proved she did not want to get blood on her hands so early in the game. She's one of the more analytical houseguests. 

James Maslow Poses

With most of the women asking to use the recast twist, it was revealed during the nominations ceremony that Keshia was the lucky victor. 

But she shocked everyone when she put James and Chuck on the block. What was the point in her not putting the others up?

Maybe it was to try and act like she was not in an alliance with all of the women, but it would have made so much more sense to go for Metta and Mark. 

Why give Jason the opportunity to play for Veto? He's already a threat and has clashed with multiple of the females, so why not make sure he goes home?

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

Obviously, the women have all the votes right now, but much can change in a few days in the house. James is going to manipulate his way off the block.

Aside from the gameplay, Omarosa and Ross had a tearful chat about the White House. Omarosa confirmed that she would never vote for Trump again and that everyone should be worried about his power. 

Things took an explosive turn when Keshia asked about the White House, and good old O thought she was being confronted by someone. 

Keshia Knight Pulliam, Pre-Baby

Omarosa brought up Keshia supporting Bill Cosby during his multitude of sexual assault cases, and well, both women retreated. 

We are just two episodes in, and the cracks are already starting to form. 

Who do you think will be evicted first?

Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Omarosa Forms an All-Female Alliance!

From the moment Julie Chen introduced us to the Celebrity Big Brother house, it was clear this was going to be a season like no other. 

Julie wasted no time in introducing us to the houseguests. They are Metta World Peace, Ariadna Guiterrez, Ross Mathews, Brandi Glanville Mark McGrath, Omarosa, Marissa Jaret Winokur, James Maslow, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Shannon Elizabeth.

Celebrity Big Brother Premiere

Yeah, it's clear the producers scraped the bottom of the barrel with some of them, but Omarosa made it clear from the get-go that she was in the house to play. 

Her dress was just too much, but it showed she did not care about what the others thought of her. Omarosa wanted to have an all-female alliance to get the men out. 

In doing so, it revealed a glaring flaw in the format. There were six females and five males when the season kicked off. It's certainly an odd number. 

Brandi Cleavage

Before Brandi entered the house, her stylist said she would need to keep her mouth shut, or she ran the risk of becoming an early target. She did not take that to heart and immediately started dragging James Maslow for speaking about his vocal range. 

Brandi felt like Mark McGrath should have been speaking about vocal range because he was in the business for a longer time. This rattled James, who told Mark he needed to win HOH and put up Brandi. 

Omarosa spoke to Shannon about creating an alliance with the ladies, and it became a reality a few scenes later. The men were too busy messing around to notice the women becoming a force to be reckoned with. 

At the HOH competition, Omarosa won immunity from the first eviction, and it allowed her to step out of the competition for the week. 

Omarosa Manigault

The houseguests had to hold on to a supersized award for dear life. The women dominated the competition, and it came down to James and Shannon. 

James was visibly struggling and tried to cut a deal with Shannon to keep him safe, but Omarosa interjected, saying that James was close to falling so a deal would be unfair to Shannon. 

In a confessional, Omarosa dished that she knew she did not want to align with James and that's why she shut down the dealmaking during the competition. 

Shannon Elizabeth Poses

Shannon won the first HOH of the season, but Julie dropped a bomb of epic proportions on the houseguests. They all had to pick a gift that would have some Big Brother swag or a game-changing twist. 

That twist would allow the lucky recipient to overthrow the HOH and become the one in power for that week. James knew the odds were stacked against him, but the episode concluded before we got down to it.
