http://www.radiotimes.com/content/features/tvod/

Lots of stuff on Amy's eviction and Carole's manipulative hold on the house.

So it's Amy's "schnockers" vs Aisleyne's "bazoongas" then, eh?

" I've not seen anyone as manipulative on Big Brother before."

Some statement from GD about Carole. She makes my top 5 despicable housemates but I could probably find a couple worse than her if I tried.

I think the difference this year has been that too many of the other HMs are so idle, childish and dependant that they PREFER being controlled and (s)mothered, so Mother Carole has had a free run.

I think she took their independance from them though.  They never had a chance to stake their claim on the house.  The first time she was out of the way they proved they can cope when they made the roast dinner.  When Susie was evicted last year the others coped ok without her even though she ruled the kitchen.  She is a pain in the bum even when they have a luxury budget.  We will never know now if the housemates can look after themselves or not thanks to her domineering.  She confuses her own opinions as fact, she tells lies to poison the minds of other housemates against her victim of the moment and is not adverse to turning on the waterworks if she does not get her own way.

What I love about Grace's blog is that even when you don't agree with it, it's still a brilliant read

I particularly don't agree with her take on Amy this week.

As for Carole, I think that the housemates put up with Carole's controlling ways because they love her so much. Pretty much universally, despite the fact that they are perfectly aware of her faults and are the primary victims of it, they all think she's wonderful.

I don't think that reflects badly on them at all. I don't think they are wimps without the gumption to stand up to her. They are just people who think a lot of her and don't want to hurt her.

As much as there are things that I don't like about Carole I think it says a lot that so many of the people who are actually close to her like her so much. It's not like we're seeing something that they're not

Having said that, she'd probably be the one I'd vote to evict given the chance

Regards

I totally agree with her on the chocolate digestives, those own-brand ones are nasty. Get rid of them!

She also talks about that Big Brother programme off the telly.

Yes I noted only this last week that Cadbury have changed the branding on their plain chocolate digestives from "Bournville" to "Cadbury's Dark Chocolate" - I'm deeply suspicious that they've mucked about with the quality of the ingredients there.

Big Brother? Wasn't that the programme that that beautiful charity patron, columnist and totally famous personage was on last year? Is it on again or sumfink?

Todays entry from Grace is probably her best so far this series.  She certainly has Carole's number.

It seems to me that, like many other people round these parts (of cyberspace), Grace is suffering from WABBIDAD (Without Aisleyne Big Brother is Dull as Dishwater) Syndrome.

Perhaps the wabbidaddies should've started a BBBBBBBB campaign? (Blooming Bring Back Blonde to Brunette Babe to Big Brother)

Let's face it, almost ANYONE from BB7 would have helped stir this lot up e.g. How would Lisa or even Lea have affected Ma Baker and her boys?

I hope she won't have to tow the C4 party line too much. I want to know what she really thinks, not a C4-friendly watered-down version!

She was on BBLB this afternoon and criticised the birds and aeroplanes on the live feed so no sign of her preaching the party line yet.

That's good to hear. I don't think I'll be bothering much with BBLB this year, unless Aisleyne pops up on it again, which could be likely since the hosts seem to like her.

It seemed as though they liked her. Then again, I got the impression they seemed to like everyone.

I noted this extract from Grace D's first blog:

Or maybe it's for me on about day 78 when I become convinced of an 'international media conspiracy' to evict my favourite housemate and begin sitting up all night bickering with strangers over the internet that Darnell should actually be canonized as a Saint. Oh dear


I wonder which previous HM she was thinking of? Another current BB Blogger perchance?

Well, I disagree about Mario and Lisa being only together for BB. We've already seen he's not that good an actor
