So Ugly on the Inside. #BB18


Julie Chen shared her thoughts about last night's live show with Entertainment Weekly.  You can read the entire article here, but here is an excerpt for us to all enjoy now.


Couple of comments about Julie's comments:

1.  Unlike Natalie, I hate to say I TOLD YOU SO, but I did describe Natalie repeatedly telling James I TOLD YOU SO earlier this week.

2.  Did you catch Natalie saying she and James "are just alike"?  Because Natalie is cute and bubbly and James is "country and Asian"?  I know Julie Chen heard that loud and clear, but Natalie was oblivious to Julie's ethnicity, apparently.

3.  Elsewhere in the linked article, Julie discusses the question about Natalie throwing James under the bus. On the live show, Natalie emphatically states she didn't throw James under the bus.  I believe Natalie believes that, but I also know that Natalie is always totally self-absorbed in whatever she does, and as usual did not consider anyone else's feelings in the matter.  There are countless examples of Natalie being thoughtless to others throughout the season.  Here are just a few examples:

     *  When she thought James would be the one evicted this week, Natalie went ON and ON and ON whining about how after he left, she'd have no one to work with in the house, oblivious to the fact that James was clearly upset about the prospect being evicted.

     *  When discussing her "friend" Bronte, Michelle said she thought it sounded like Bronte had a pretty cool life. Natalie immediately responded with "No, Bronte is just a mathematician.", not even considering how hurtful that might be for Bronte.

    *  During Natalie's hissy fit yesterday afternoon (more on that below) she kept going ON and ON and ON about how much she has been "bullied" in the house this summer, and how James would never understand.  James replied that he does understand, and mentions the childhood stories he told Natalie this summer about having to run home from the bus stop every day to avoid being beat up. Natalie's response was akin to "yeah, but still".

My point is that the way Natalie sees the world and her approach to other people is already programmed at her age (late 20's) and you can't just expect her to suddenly snap out of these totally self-centered, potentially-narcisisstic  behaviors.


I am certainly not a psychiatrist, nor a counselor, but I watched Natalie play Big Brother for nearly three months, and this shoe sounds like it might fit.

The CBS episodes certainly took a turn for Natalie in the past week, as they FINALLY started showing the casual TV-only viewers a true inside view of the "Jatalie" relationship.  I hate to break it to you, but there is no actual "Jatalie showmance", no matter how much James wants there to be.

I'm glad we saw James confront Natalie on the CBS show about how her first attempts at showmances with both Victor and Corey didn't work out, because that sets up the viewers for what I'm hoping they show us on Sunday night's episode, probably spliced in with footage of James looking absolutely miserable and defeated during the HoH competition.

On a live show day, the live feeds are down for much of the day, to allow for rehearsal and time for Production to address the house guests, etc.  But I saw the following scene yesterday afternoon and was shocked by it, even though I recognized who Natalie really is a long, long time ago.

Natalie was laying in bed, and James was standing nearby, trying to talk to her and saying he just wanted to check in on her.

Natalie, snapping at him:  We're just friends James. You can just worry about yourself in here from now on.

Apparently Natalie is EXTREMELY upset about how Victor reacted when she ate all of his Starburst candies.  She mentions that several times here, so it really must have hit a nerve.


While the two of them were in the bedroom, the other house guests were playing cards in the dining area, and they could hear bursts of laughter and other conversation from time-to-time, which seemed to anger Natalie even more.  Here are a few tidbits from Natalie, as James gently tried to point out that they only have a few hours left, so why is she acting like this?

*  Natalie tells America that she takes back her apology to Victor and Paul that she made, telling them she was sorry for stabbing them in the back.
*  Victor seems to have reconsidered how to talk to people while he was out of the house this season, but Paul has continued to make fun of people all summer.
*   Natalie would NEVER be friends with any of the people in the house, because they're all toxic.
*   Natalie can't wait to leave the house to see Julie and go to the Jury House.
*   Natalie just wants to see Bridgette and Michelle in the Jury House, but later mentioned wanting to see Zakiyah, too.
*   Natalie claims that she didn't intend to throw James under the bus, but intended to throw Nicole under the bus instead.  (Um....NO.  I was watching that conversation Natalie, and you CLEARLY said you regretted trusting James' and he ruined your game.)
*   Natalie wishes she had never done this show...she only picked it over The Bachelor because she knew there were cash prizes.
*   Natalie said waiting to leave the house was torture, and she couldn't wait to get out of here.


And here's the kicker:

Natalie:  If I ever did this again I would NEVER get into a showmance again. EVER.

***crickets***

James, haltingly:  Well, I'm sorry I ruined the experience for you.

Natalie started to backtrack, but HERE'S THE THING:  I think Natalie was referring to Victor here...I think Victor was the one she really wanted, and that is what she considers her true showmance.  It makes sense, because she was clearly IRATE about the Starburst situation.


James also wanted to take a nap with her, but she jumped out of the bed to get in James' bed, saying she wanted to be in the bed alone.  James heard that loud and clear and got of her bed, so she got back in alone and pulled the covers up.

At one point Natalie also announced that she was hungry, and went to the kitchen and came back with a large tub of cottage cheese.  She started shoveling in spoonfuls, one after the other, obviously still angry.

Natalie:  You're not used to seeing me eat cottage cheese.  It's healthy.  No one else in here eats cottage cheese.

James:  Well, there's a lot of dairy in that.

Natalie, snapping back:  Let me live my life.

Then she got into the chocolates, unwrapping one after the other and popping them in her mouth.  We can all agree that chocolate is indeed tasty, but I think part of the attraction for Natalie was the fact that the chocolates are being used as money in the poker game.  And the Starbursts are too, so there's that.

***UPDATE***  Apparently Natalie took the deck of playing cards with her when she left the house, which is a prank I actually approve of.  She was VERY bitter about how much fun they were all having playing poker.  Natalie did leave some Starbursts behind though...I saw Victor taking inventory of how many of them were left in the bag on top of the fridge, under the Eiffel Tower.

If I were being evicted, I would be angry, too, but the fact that Natalie didn't give a shit about how mean she was being to James shows what kind of a person she really is.  James was sniffling a little bit, blaming it on his allergies. He did sneeze when he opened up his suitcase to pack, but the sniffling came later.  So who knows what the source of James' sniffles was.

(But James still should have known better than to repeat the same mistakes he made last season, but of course he feels that America rewarded him for it. And they did, which is very frustrating for me, but whatever.)

Needless to say, the Natalie we saw in this scene is a sharp contrast to the chirpy, Up-With-People Natalie who was portrayed on the live show as she was evicted.

Natalie didn't even have the guts to be honest with Julie when asked if her romance with James was real.  But Julie Chen didn't believe her for one minute...her interview with EW linked above proved Julie is no dummy.

About the "Showmance" with Victor:

We saw Victor on the premiere episode saying that Natalie was attractive, comparing her to the girls on a "telenovela".  The flirtation between Natalie and Victor happened before the feeds went live, so all we have to go on is what we've heard them say about it since then.  Natalie says that Victor was very mean to her, but I think what was "mean" was Victor telling her that he didn't want to pursue a showmance, after all.

The picture below was taken from some Jeff live feed highlights, and is the only visual evidence I know of that demonstrates that this attraction ever took place.  In the highlight clip, Natalie was going ON and ON asking Victor if he thought she was attractive.  It was exhausting to watch, actually.

***UPDATE*** JokersUpdates found the damn RECIEIPTS to provide evidence about this early-season showmance.


Maybe Victor got a taste of what it was like to have all of those cameras around, and had second thoughts about his pre-show ambition of hooking up with girls on TV.  Or maybe he realized that he and Natalie are not suited for each other, and how long the summer could be if he got trapped in a relationship he couldn't get away from.  I know he didn't like all of the makeup that Natalie wears, and he didn't like the way her sweatpants dragged on the ground.  But is that really mean?  And would the Victor we've all come to know make personal attacks on someone on camera?

I have to say no, and no.  But as usual that is just me and my opinion.

    2. I think you are so on target with your description and "diagnosis" of Natalir. She is definitely a disturbed young women. I am a social worker, and I couldn't have said that better! Good job.���� she needs some meds!!

  3. Natalie is high maintenance and Victor recognised that, no doubt. He did the smart thing to get out of that showmance. James did reasonable observations yesterday with Natalie's previous showmance attempts. What Natalie needs is therapy. It doesn't matter how she became the way she is and what caused it, but the only way she can overcome it, her insecurities, her constant need for approval about how she looks (because the pants thing came from her asking Victor his approval and he answered honestly what his preference was and she just didn't like that, Victor did well to not lie), about being focused on herself and all that, the only person who can help her is a therapist. She seems to have deep issues and overcoming them would help her attain her own happiness while respecting and appreciating the people who care about her, thus helping them with THEIR happines too. Everybody wins. Friendship lol

    But here's some comments for fun: Hey Natalie, cheese creates mucus in the body. If your body has too much mucus, you can get sick. Mucus is a large cause of many illnesses and diseases. James was concerned for your health.

    I think Natalie might have an eating disorder. I don't know what cheerleaders learn or get programmed about their bodies. Sometimes people are brutal with them, but all cheerleaders get ''bullied'' about their eating habits. Natalie eats away her anger and binges big time, all those big bites. Sweets and chocolate produce, I forget the name, in the body, so she is obviously seeing for EXTERNAL things to make her feel happy. The problem is, this could later on because a drug addiction. Because her problem in INTERNAL. No external thing will make her happy, no person, food, or drug. It has to be found within. Hence why she needs therapy. Once she realises its internal, she can begin taking responsibility for herself, her decisions, her life, and how she reacts to certain situations, she can begin to have power over how she feels about herself and then it won't matter what people say or think. There is a problem that goes much deeper than just her attitude and I hope that she can some day find her internal zen.

    1. She does victimize herself a lot! Before she got nominated it was hard to watch because that's actually damaging to people's character. I started switching her off.. Paul often jokingly says he sh×ts on everybody... He's not the only one..

    2. She really needs to get a lot of professional help!

    3. Oh please!! I get that Natalie isn't perfect and is high maintenance. But your comment feels like a mental health docs final diagnosis of her or something! Natalie is still pretty young! She doesn't have a year more issues than a lot of women her age. And this silly BS about her being a food addicted drug addict is ridiculous!! The nit picking of silly stuff like the cottage cheese and candies is also ridiculous!! A LOT of people who are stressed or bummed out grab a favorite food and start feeding their face! Heck I just killed a whole half gallon of ice cream bc I've had a long week! There is nothing wrong with what she was doing!! And Celinka I don't see PHD or DR at the front of your name!! Which tells me you are ridiculously unqualified to "diagnose " Natalie of anything! Just because you read a few articles online on sites that typically don't even have factual information in the first place does NOT make you a doctor! So please stop trying to be an arm chair doctor!! We already have enough quacks in medicine!!

  5. I agree that Natalie is an exhausting narcissist. She was self-involved and self-important and you could tell that she felt most of her worth came from how she looks, rather than WHO she is as a person. On eviction night, she constantly fooled with her hair, trying to make sure she looked perfect. Very exhausting. She most likely gets guys who like her for how she looks...then once they get to know how needy she is, they leave. Deep down she isn't very nice. Slights to her are magnified, while her slights to others are minimized (she didn't mean it!)

    But how old is James anyway? He came across as a silly love sick boy. He needs to grow up. Have some self respect and be a man and don't allow a manipulative whiner ruin things for you. He was a doormat. There's nothing attractive about that.

    I liked James before but don't want to see him win anything this season. He played lapdog not big brother!

    1. See, this is an excellent point as well. Lapdog? I'm not so sure.. But I get it.. I think deep down, and ppl may disagree, I think he doesn't like her. (shrug) But he is stuck. He followed her around a lot more towards the end aware of the other folks in the room (us) irritating her, constantly bugging her, asking her what's wrong, so she would snap... Then he slipped and upchucked all those grudges he had against her.. He is grown man with child, love sick boy, maybe, but he is stuck in that house with all those cams, and she is beautiful girl... .. It's BB

  6. You are as big of a hater as Julie Chen. Every interview she did after getting evicted she had only good things to say about James. CBS gave her a horrible edit and Julie was just a hateful shrew in her interview. Don't worry this will be my last comment to you. I'm sure you won't post it because I notice you only post comments that agree with you. Nat fan 4life. Nat for AVP

    4. Only someone lacking in discernment or determined to create villainy where there is none would write this jealousy filled tripe about Natalie.

      1: James told her to do whatever she needed to to stay. She said the 1 thing to V/P that she said about James to James.

      2: James REPEATEDLY talked about her to whomever would listen for the entire week.

      3: CBS gives James an angelic little edit.

      4: Chen doesn't watch the damn feeds. She is going by what the edit showed.

      5: The only person in need of psychoanalyzing is whomever the toad is that wrote this tripe.

      6: Natalie, on stage, was making a cute joke: James and I are just alike... It wasn't in the least offensive unless you are determined to make it so.

      7: ALL of Natalie's exit interviews have been spot on and honest.

      8: You suck.

    5. whoever watched this season and didn't think Natalie was a phony, mean little self-absorbed twat, must have only been watching the show.. A bad edit?? I think she got a pretty damn good edit.. along with Nicole and Frank, some of the best edits in the house.. I watched the feeds all season (well, what I could stomach. Which shockingly was more than I thought I could) and I saw Natalie's mask slip the more her BB life was in jeopardy. Guilt trips got so bad that James basically quit talking with her and just pulled the DaVonne strategy (Mmhmm after every rant). it was cringe as hell to watch

    6. Hi Katie:

      1. I like the way you number your points. I do that too, sometimes.

      2. If you are a CBS-only watcher and are okay with the superficial portrayal of the house guests as presented on the TV show, then you really shouldn't be wasting your precious time reading in-depth discussions of what is happening on the live feeds. Because that is what we do here....discuss the live feeds and that is VERY different than what you see on the CBS episodes.

      3. I assure you I am in no way jealous of Natalie Negrotti. In fact, I pity her, because she has such low self-esteem that all she can talk about is her weight, her boobs, her makeup, and her limited NFL cheerleading experience.



      4. If you think that Natalie was "spot on" and honest in all of her post-eviction interviews, then kindly re-read #2 above. I don't think you belong here.

      5. I do agree that CBS gives James way too positive of an edit, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do about that, and was helpless to address it last season, as well.

      In case you missed it, here is a very typical interaction between Natalie and James in the last week or so:

      James: What are your intentions with me? Do you really like me?

      Natalie: I've dated plenty of ugly guys before.

      (Yes, she said that.)

  7. I agree with you, James should not win anything at all, he did nothing all season but follow around a girl clearly not into him and beg live feeders to vote him AFP. Hoping this is the 'last rodeo' for James on BB.

    1. I've watched Natalie and observed her behavior for HOURS over the last EIGHTY-SOMETHING DAYS.

      According to my math, that is roughly equivalent to 960 50-minute therapy sessions, assuming 10 hours of live feed coverage over an 80 day period.

      I'm not a mathematician, either, but somehow I figured that out.

  11. All the people sticking up for Natalie must either be a friend of hers, family member or blinded by the fake boobs like James. Get over it. The truth has been spoken. Her true colors came out when she forgot the cameras were there. The only reason why she had "Nice" things to say in her interviews was because she knew the cameras were rolling. Of course she is going to try to make herself look good in front of the viewers. You are not a very smart cookie if you are falling for her bull.

    1. YEP! Natalie slipped and showed the person she really is - the one hiding behind the giggles and high pitched speech - a number of times. It happened every time she was upset with one of her other housemates, especially the guys.

      Paulie was awful in some of the things he said and definitely the way he said them, but he sure had Natalie pegged!

  12. Omg. Your article said what I was screaming at the feeds
    "James grow a pair.. she's toxic"
    Vic was lucky he realized what she is..
    NIC knows. Thats why nat hates her. Meech is too stupid to know. But women know a catty, self centered, narcissistic person when we see them.
    James is dumb if he ever goes near her. It's all about her.
    Sorry though that Vic may leave again. I do not want James or Corey to win. Ugh..

  13. Oh and btw, James is not that nice. He's as misogynistic as Paulie. The men this season are horrid.. Nat is the same as the men too.

  14. They had a date night as well, Victor and Nat. It's on You-tube .. and it surprised me to see how much Victor was into Nat. I actually think Nat hurt Victor so that is why he did not want a showmance with her... But agree with pretty much every thing you said.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I saw the live feeds where Natalie is behind Vic in bed spooning him and she drapes her arm across his waist..something she NEVER did with James. Also, she did not take the cards. Vic enters the HOH room after leaving the diary room--before the HOH comp and told everyone "they" told him "they" took the cards. He kept telling Paul he didn't think Natalie took them. James is aiming for AFP and the sniffling was yet another of his antics to get sympathy. Last night he even asked if you can win the $500,000 and get AFP. The kitchen crew told him no. CBS all but squashed Nat's chance of winning AFP (which I am happy about) but they are pushing him forward to get it with their poor, poor, pitiful James edit. After James' story about him and his friend Rodney double teaming a stripper at a cheap hotel before entering the house this time around, I hope that is talked about because it really does show more about his character. Last night he continues to give us a look into his personal life by saying he likes to date young girls; his last girl friend was 17 and he tells Paul, Vic & Corey that the consent age in S. Carolina when he lived there was 14. (Paul and Vic were stunned at this revelation). James says being 32, he's not into the games the "girls" play, but hey, whatever...Another little tidbit that was revealed by Natalie on the live feeds: She was talking to Michelle in the bathroom and told her she has the HPV virus....Michelle's awkward reply, "Wellll, that's good to know."

    2. Are you sure you saw Nat and Vic spooning on the feeds? I'm pretty sure their relationship was over when the feeds began, no?

      Also just and FYI, it's estimated that 75% of younger women have some from of HPV. It's very common and Nat shouldn't be shamed for having it.

    4. The link to watch three videos of Natalie and Victor is included in one of the ***UPDAtES*** included in the post.

      The three incidents took place before the feeds went live, but that doesn't mean the cameras weren't rolling, just like every other season.

      Victor actually talked about his flirtation with Natalie last night on the feeds. He said he knew she was flirting with Corey, too, so he got out of the situation. It only went on for four days, he said. James said he watched Natalie flirt all summer with other guys, only stopping after Day 70, so he knew he was just a "convenience" for her.

  16. Wow, you certainly showed YOUR true colors with this hate-filled, biased piece of garbage. I expected better from a feedwatcher who should know there's two sides to every story. Was Natalie perfect? Certainly not, but the way that people couldn't wait to jump on her at the first opportunity says way more about them than her.

  17. I feel Julie Chen was harsh on Natalie, almost deliberately setting a trap for her. Not surprising at all since her husband Les Moonves' favorite player is James. I have this vision of Moonves in my head thinking "No One gets between me and my James"

  18. Unfortunately, Natalie bashed her past boyfriends, especially the last one stating how he hurt her, really stole her confidence, constantly tore her down, leaving her a shell of her former self. Sure there's another side to this story too but alas, we will never hear that. How convenient for her.

  19. I feel I need to take up for Natalie, and I'm not a fan.

    Natalie is self absorbed, but I would categorize her more as having an inferiority complex than having a narcissistic personality disorder. She spends too much time on herself because she feels inadequate, in my opinion, and her approach to getting attention is her cutesy (barf) little girl act. However, when she's bouncy and does somersaults all over the place when she's excited, she is funny and adorable, I must admit, lol!

    I think she was extremely upset about going home and wanted some space from James, who was staying. James didn't get it and upset her more by pushing himself on her. She tried to keep it nice, but James was invading her space at a time she needed some down time.

    She probably likes James, but I doubt if she likes him as a romantic interest. James comes on a bit strong and overpowers women with his 'friend status becoming too intimate' schtick he pulls.

    I like James better than I do Natalie, but he overstepped his boundary during Natalie's last week in the house. She was being treated as a pariah, as the houseguest going home usually is, and it was upsetting to her. She took it out on James. Sometimes we do that to people we're close to, but they usually forgive us, being friends, family or what-not.

    As for Julie, she should have come on a bit stronger to Paulie and a bit more gentle with Natalie. Julie's hubby is a big fan of James, which might have swayed Ms. Chen as far as Natalie is concerned.

    James was instrumental in getting out Bonte and Bridgette, and if Natalie had sided with Victor, she would have been in slightly better shape at the end. So she was resentful. She got over it. James apparently got over it. So what's it to us, lol? AND, if they had voted out James rather than Natalie, whomever's left of the Sitting Ducks, after this week, would have a better shot at winning Big Brother 18.

    1. I agree to some extent. I hated Paulie but all the armchair psychiatry around him irritated me. We don't have the right to diagnose him an egomaniac anymore than we have the right to diagnose Natalie with NPD. We simply don't really know them. Our snapshots of their interactions are just snapshots.

      Natalie could just as easily be indoctrinated to behave this way by our society. It has certain expectations of beautiful young women, mainly being ditsy, bratty and cutesy... I certainly don't agree with feed watcher that she is so narcisstic as to warrant a disorder, implying that she has a sociopathic view of other people. Don't think there's any reason to believe that.

      As an anthropologist, I am fascinated by human behavior. It's one of the reasons I love BB! There is a predisposition for players to demonize targets in the house and for fans to pile onto people we don't like. These are all universal human behaviors. It most likely has to do with our complex social intelligence, specifically how we are constantly asserting our relative positions within society and using other individuals as benchmarks. It's all animal stuff, but I can't stop watching!

  20. No wonder Natalie is single. and I'm so happy her true colors came out in the end. She did not fool me one bit. All she did was UsE James.

    1. Yes, that was quite a telling statement. I think Natalie was saying that that is her general approach about apologies in life, not just in her interactions with James.

      Julie Chen was like, "Oh, okay."

  25. Natalie is great person inside and out! She was honest and genuine when asked about her feelings towards James. This relationship had real chemistry and was filled with a lot of fun moments. You can't fake that, and it clear to see. However, at the end of the day Natalie was there to win $500,000. You can't be too mad at the girl when she knew her game was over the second Victor won HOH. Having to spend the next 7 days knowing you lost, and having James following you around EVERYWHERE is torture. She took out her frustrations on James, and James did a poor job managing it by taking everything personally.

    If you believe Natalie was being genuine about her friendships with Bronte, Bridgette, and Michelle, than her feelings about her bond with James must have a lot of truth behind it too. Natalie is a young woman and is still learning and growing. Her heart was in the right place and so are her morals. James saw all that and frankly that is the only opinion that matters. I wish them both the best and I'll stand up for Jatalie anyday!

    1. You are spot on! People act like she wasn't allowed to play Big Brother but she was. The only person here who is ugly on the inside is the people who have no ability to see beyond their own jealousy.

  26. Nat started playing to the cameras for AFP when James kept telling her to address "America" and to keep saying the two of them were being *hit on once again. It sucks that future players will now start using the AFP angle to get cash instead of just focusing on the game. They need to get rid of AFP and come up with something different (just like the same old, predictable comps).
