Tidbits From Today: Cassi, Kalia & Dani

Where to begin?  I am putting out a few fires associated with my business, but rest assured I am keeping an eye on the game and listened to the feeds all day.  I took some pictures and have 4 Post-It notes covered with scribbling, so in the next few posts I will try to update you as best as I can.

So far, I haven't heard BB telling the HG to 'Stop That!' very often.  Instead, they are cutting the feeds when they hear the HG say anything that might lead to legal problems.  For example, if they are singing or humming or discussing someone who hasn't signed the release form.

Cassi has been telling the HG stories about her ex-boyfriend Lee Bice.  He is a country singer (or "sanger").  I've never heard about him, but if you google his name you will find out how hot he is.  Of course.  I gather they had a bad breakup, but I can't get a good sense of it because BB won't let me.  They love to turn off the feeds when the shit gets good.

Cassi is not exactly making a good name for herself in the house.  Over the last day or so, Brendon has been saying that he can't trust her as far as he can throw her and that she thinks she is outsmarting everyone by having Dom and Lawon do her dirty work.  And now that Brendon is saying it, the All Stars are all saying it.  Dani trusts Cassi the least out of anyone in the house.  Rachel is feeling that way too.  I heard Dani say this afternoon that she wishes they had used the Veto this week to get rid of her.

So Cassi needs to try to win a few competitions this week.  The All Stars have warmed up to Shelly, so I think gifting Shelly with a Golden Key and giving Cassi the boot would be an easy decision.

I'm still not sure what the alliance name is for the All Stars.  I have heard Brendon call it the Care Bear Alliance several times today.  But I don't know.  Please fill me in if you do.
 So as you can see Cassi does smoke.  And she pulls on that cigarette like nobody's business.  I'm sure that is the Model Diet, but as far as smokers go, Cassi, Adam and Shelly are the most regular smokers.  Jeff likes to have a cigarette, too, but usually just at night or after eating or while getting liquored up.
 Kalia had an interesting conversation with Cassi today on the patio, which you see here.  I think Lawon was perched nearby, and Adam, Shelly and Dom came in an out of it, I think.  She talked about going to Spelman College and explained the rules about not being allowed to have men in the dorms after a certain hour.  (Spelman is a prestigious girls school in Atlanta which is adjacent to Morehouse a men's college.  Both are predominately black, but Kalia says they can't prevent other races from attending.)

She started to tell a story about her boyfriend visiting and how she snuck him around the dorm at night and the feeds cut out.  She talked about her acting career starting when she was 2 years old.  They talked about The Cosby Show and told Cassi she was so close to being ______, who is one of the characters.  I only remember Theo and Rudy from that show, so I don't know which character Kalia said.  But of course the feeds went out during that conversation.

Kalia has been stepping here and there in the house.  She puts on little impromptu shows in the bedrooms sometimes, once for Jeff and Jordan.  I love to watch stepping, and Kalia was pretty good.  It's been a long time since she was in college, but she still remembers the rhythms and described the different props used by the black fraternities on campus.  Like one uses canes in their routines.  It's like line dancing with a drum beat.

I'm impressed with Kalia.  I can't recall seeing someone with her viewpoint on BB in the past.  She has no chip on her shoulder for being black, and speaks freely about her race without making anybody feel uncomfortable.  Let's face it, Kalia is probably the most upper crust houseguest.  Her family obviously had money, and she is well traveled, went to private colleges and got an advanced degree in New York, etc.  She's a sorority girl and is open and honest (at least she comes off that way).  She's representing and I hope her predecessors will be proud of what she accomplishes here.
 Can you see her crying in that picture?  Shelly was sitting with them and when she went back in the house someone said that they were glad Shelly was there, because it was like being able to talk to your mom.  Cassi and Kalia both started missing their moms.   It was sweet.  Lawon tried to sooth Kalia, but what can he do?
The picture you see above is Danelle prancing down the hall with Jeff after weighing herself.  Danielle has a thing with every single man in that house.  And by "thing", I don't mean a hook up.  Relax Jeff fans.

She just has a little dialogue and relationship with each one.  She hugs Lawon all the time, stays up late at night with Dom, works out and plays games with Keith, and talks game with all of them, including Brendon and Jeff.  It's kind of flirty, and they all admire her.  She is a major ringleader in the entertainment every night, making up the rules in the drinking games and giving as good as she gets.

She's got a good game going.  Dani's going to be there a while.

They've been pestering BB for a scale, particularly the people on slop.  Today they got one and there was some talk that the scale is 5 pounds heavy, but I watched a few of them step up and be weighed.  They weighed in as follows:

Jeff - 181, he is usually 185
Jordan - 128
Porsche - 128
Dani - 130, she is usually around 135--lots of muscle weight
Adam - 215

I wish I heard the verdict on  Rachel's weight. I heard her wigging out about it, but I didn't hear it.  Did you?
