Dick at Night 8-29-11

This show was taped last Sunday night.  Dick was still on his road trip, "at a friend's house".  There is not denying that Dick was on a "trip", though.

 He was obviously high as a kite, leaving Matt Hoffman (BB12) to try and restore some sort of order to the broadcast.  James Rhine (BB6 and Allstars) was also a panelist.  Howie Gorden was at James' apartment and appeared on camera several times in an annoying way.  Maybe they are roommates?  At what age do these adults stop having roommates?

Matt knew right away that someone needed to take the lead so he bravely tried to hold the show together.  You can see that cool framed bat that he has---I mentioned that in another post.

There were a number of dead air silences---usually Dick keeps the conversation going and has a list of topics he wants to cover.  You can see that Matt put on his Diamond Power of Veto to demonstrate how cheap and tacky it is.  He keeps it hanging on the wall which is cute.

Howie really tries to be the center of attention, as you can see.

Yeah, yeah, Howies naked.  But look at Dick---he is way fucked up.  At one point Matt read a caller's question that said "Just how high are you tonight?" and Matt graciously acted like the question was directed at him and started discussing an operation, and pain pills (kidding).

Then Dick said that Marijuana is legal.

Matt:  Not in Illinois....

Dick:  Well it is in Colorado!

I love to smoke pot and have actually done it several (hundred) times.  Dick can handle his weed---he's a big boy.  I have no idea what he was on tonight.  Maybe he was high on life...

He did tweet an apology at one point, saying "sorry but I was a little out of it on the last show" but I can't find that tweet now.  It either got deleted, or maybe I imagined it.  Maybe I was high!  ha ha ha.


Here is something I forgot when I first posted this recap:

James Rhine was originally on BB6 teamed with Sarah, his girlfriend.  I heard him say on the live feeds that his partner was supposed to be a male friend of his and Sarah was substituted at the last minute.  Tonight he says that his friend backed out because he didn't want to be on TV, or something like that.  James learned that his friend backed out when Robyn Kass from Casting called to tell him.

Here's the thing:  James has not talked to his friend at all since then.  He thinks his friend should have been man enough to call him and explain why he didn't want to be on Big Brother, rather than having Robyn do it.

I thought that was interesting....

Dick at Nite 8-25-11

This episode of Dick at Night aired just after last week's explosive live show, which featured the double eviction of Dani Donato and Jeff Schroeder.

Evel Dick's guests were Jun Song (winner BB4), Jessie Godderz (BB10, BB11), James Rhine (BB6 and Allstars) and Rob Cesternino (from several Survivor seasons).

Dick did the show from his mom's house and at one point she closed the door due to his profanity.  Ha ha.

Jessie was thrilled that Jeff was just evicted, understandably.  You may recall that when Jeff won the Coup D'Etat in BB11, he used it to evict Jessie, who was shell shocked by the move. But not as surprised as Chima, who was HOH that week.  As you know Chima pretty must lost her shit over that and was removed from the game a few days later after destroying property and being obnoxious to Production.

Rob interrupted the show to say hello to his daughter and blew her a kiss, ala Shelly.  It was funny.

Rob participates in a Fantasy Football league with a bunch of reality people--the draft information is what you see in the background there.

They discussed how you really aren't supposed to talk game in the Jury House. Jessie said that if you are there with someone you don't like, you don't even have to talk to them.  Or see them, even.

Jessie:  You're just sharing a kitchen, at that point.

Jessie was more personable than in the past, and seems to have developed more personality.  He did have to flex a few times for the camera, but I don't think he can help that.  Dick tried to get him to admit that he got handjobs in the BB10 house from both Lydia and Natalie, but Jesse did not respond to that.

As you may know he now has a wrestling contract with Impact (or something like that) and gives thanks to a long list of names to people who have helped his career (including Hulk Hogen and Bubba the Love Sponge).  He lives in Florida now and says he has a girlfriend.  (Kendall, maybe?)  He has taped a few matches but says it is up to the wrestling league when they are broadcast.

Dick says several times that CBS must be shitting a brick to lose two big players in one night--Dani & Jeff.  No one predicted that Production would create a new twist or diversion to shake things up, but maybe they assumed this was obvious.

Dick has been out on the West Coast for a week now.   He went to LA for some sort of mystery audition and is visiting his family tonight.  There were a few technical problems in the beginning of the show but everything went okay.

Dick also reiterates how stupid Jordan is.  At the request of a caller, he re-tells this story:

Dick:  We were all sitting around the pool one day and Jordan was talking about a friend of her's who is in the Middle East (or somewhere---I don't remember).  I asked if he was in the military and Jordan said, no, he's in the army!

So that is pretty stupid.  Jordan isn't a rocket scientist like Brendon is....

Shelly is Still a Liar

During the meeting with Shelly, Jordan asked her if she threw any competitions, or if she really tried.  Shelly mentioned one competition that she threw, but said she tried hard in all of the others.

After Shelly walked off, Jordan could barely contain herself with Rachel.

Jordan:  OK, that's a lie!  Right after the robot competition, she told me she threw it!  I swear she said that she put three pieces on the back of the robot instead of two to look like she tried. So that's a lie right there....

Rachel brings up how mean Porsche and Kalia have been to Shelly since Monday, when she went up on the block and they assumed she was going home.  Rachel doesn't trust Shelly at all.

Rachel:  Shelly knows they have ignored her since then....

Jordan really wants Shelly out because she trusts Adam, but Rachel wants to evict Adam, knowing they can beat Shelly later.

Rachel:  We just have to be really logical about this......

They both agree that Kalia thinks she has won the game already, and is on a "high horse" about it.  (That is a true southern expression, if you've never heard it...)

As they discuss Adam, we see him on camera, swaddled in bed.

And now we see Kalia literally stuffing herself into the top of her dress.

Rachel and Jordan Approach Shelly

with a deal.

Rachel walks up to Shelly and the patio and starts the conversation.

Rachel: OK Shelly.  If you were to stay.....

Shelly:  Oh my god I think I'm going to throw up.

Rachel tells Shelly she knows Shelly is going to try to evict her---she knows it.  Shelly denies it and then Porsche comes out.  They start talking about nail polish and then Porsche goes on an on about her HOH pictures and how they should pose for them.

Shelly:  Porsche, do you mind if I talk to them?  There are some things I need to clear up before I leave tomorrow.

Porsche goes upstairs and reports to Kalia that some sort of negotiations or deal is taking place downstairs.  Porsche thinks Shelly will throw the HOH in order to give Rachel and Jordan a better chance of winning.

Meanwhile, outside on the patio, Shelly tells Rachel that everything Rachel said to her yesterday was right on point, and that after that conversation Shelly went and put Rachel's stuffed dog back on her bed.

Rachel: Oh I knew it was you!

Shelly:  It was.  He was inside the Kleenex box.

Now Jordan brings up Shelly's behavior during last Thursday's live show.  Shelly tells them that behind the scenes on Thursday's show, Kalia was saying that she wanted to nominate Jeff and Jordan.

Shelly:  Kalia was the ringleader.  I've told you everything to your face.  I know I've hurt you (to Jordan) and I don't do that to people.  I will do everything in my power to make it right with you.  I will stand up tomorrow night and tell everyone whose side I'm on.

Jordan:  I just want to be sure that you don't vote out Rachel.

Shelly swears she won't.

Jordan:  But if it was so easy for you to turn on Jeff last week, why wouldn't you turn on us?  Fool my once, shame on you, but twice....shame on me.  What if this happened with Tony?  How would you feel if you were completely blindsided?  Wouldn't you be angry at me?

Jordan brings up Shelly's behavior during the snake competition---she was elated when Porsche won and it was obvious.  Shelly talks and talks about her mistakes and how sorry she is.  She says she does not want Kalia or Porsche to win.

About Kalia's Dog....

There is a growing buzz on the internet about Kalia's relationship with her dog Bentley.  As a dog lover myself, I have a hard time hearing some of the things Kalia says about little Bentley, who is about 7 years old and is a Yorkshire Terrier.

Here is a summary of what I have heard Kalia say about Bentley. Straight from the Horse's Mouth, so to speak.

*  Bentley has horrible behavior and everybody recognizes it.
*  Kalia asked the house guests and the live feeder community if anybody wanted to take him off her hands.  Maybe she was kidding, maybe not.
*  Bentley still hasn't been house trained properly.
*  Bentley bit Kalia and she THREW HIM AGAINST THE WALL

(When Rachel heard that, she was alarmed and told Kalia that is not the way to treat or train a dog.  She gave examples of how she trained her Rottie Benz whom she adopted from a shelter.)

*  Kalia is considering getting another dog, even though her family said she can't even handle having one.
*  Kalia's boyfriend Derek, whom she talks about all of the time, has only met Bentley once.

Kalia has been telling the girls that Derek lives on a boat, and describing all of the time she spends with him at night on the water.

Rachel:  And he's only met Bentley once?   Why?

Kalia:  Because I usually stay at Derek's...

Rachel:  But he's so little....

Rachel wanted to ask who was watching Bentley while Kalia was away all night, but the New Quiet Rachel didn't make a big deal out of it.  But it was clear that she has issues with the way Kalia treats Bentley.

I have issues with the way Kalia treats Bentley, too.  I'm willing to bet some of the fans are also concerned about that as well, and that Kalia will find out more about that a few weeks from now....
