How shocked are you to be here right now?Well I'm not shocked really. I mean I knew when I was nominated that there was definitely something going on. So, I'm not shocked one bit.Did you expect Danielle to come after you at all?I did not expect Danielle to nominate me, no. I did not. So why did she come after you?I don't know what it is. I honestly hope it's not jealousy. I am much older than her. I don't know if she's jealous of me or what she's jealous of. But I mean, her nominations and what she said to me about all the stuff that I apparently said I was coming after her, are all weird excuses. I think it was just weird excuses to put me up, and I was just expendable to her.Do you believe this wasn't her decision but more so someone speaking in her ear?I definitely believe Boogie was in her ear, for sure, and Dan too.What is it about Boogie that make people listen to him so much so that he can orchestrate a big game move like this without even being HoH?Boogie is really good at pitting other women against each other as he did in All Stars. It was very easy for him to get me to target other women and I think he probably did the same thing to Danielle.You're known as being very strong at competitions, but why were your social and strategic game not as strong this season?I don't think anything was lacking in my social game, maybe I could have been a little bit nicer to Boogie and Frank. But the problem with me is that I am known to win competitions so I have a huge target on my back and this was an opportunity to backdoor me. The opportunity presented itself and I couldn't even save myself.As far as strategically, I did try and align with strong players, but they weren't willing to align with me because they were scared of me.Dan and Britney, why do you think they turned on you?I'm not really sure why Britney would turn on me because I definitely had her back. Dan, of course, I knew he would turn on me if he thought it was a better move for him. I don't why Dan or Britney would think it's better to keep Boogie in the house than me. The only thing I can think is that they thought I had a better chance at winning than Boogie did or they thought I was more likable than Boogie.We saw you going to Dan a lot this week to get a sense of what was happening in the house. Did you think he would tell you the truth?He was pretty much telling me I was going by what he was telling me. I would catch him in a lie so I knew I was going home. That's why I kept doing it. He was the only person that really told me the truth [by not telling me the truth].Are you hurt that Wil/Jenn/Ashley also gave up on you?Yes, of course. With Jenn and Wil absolutely. Am I shocked that Ashley turned on me? Yeah, I kind of am. I thought for sure she would at least throw me a vote. I think people got to her. She's very easily manipulated. Who has a chance of making it far right now?I think Frank will probably go really far. I think Shane and Frank are going to go far and probably Britney too.Why is there so much tension and animosity between you and Boogie?I think Boogie is still really pissed off that I took out his best friend in All Stars [Will Kirby]. He wanted him and Will to be in the final two and I crushed his dreams of that, and he's still holding a grudge from that long ago. That's the problem. I knew he was coming back into the house, and I thought this was my chance to get back at him. Of course I was definitely going to be after him and he knew that, I just didn't have the chance to.
What did you think of Boogie's goodbye speech to you?Well, clearly, Will told him to come after me. I mean if he wants to play this game for someone else, then great. But I don't think he's going to win this game. He's such a huge target and he's so hated. Is he good at this game? Absolutely. But I don't think he can win against most people in this house.Why did you come back into the BB house?I was definitely excited about the coaching aspect of it. I loved the new twist in the game. I was excited about being a coach. I loved being a coach it was so awesome. Would you go into the Big Brother game for a fourth time?I'm probably done with it, but if the offer's on the table I might consider it.
