Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Did Shannon Elizabeth Get Blindsided?

There was a lot at stake for the houseguests on the latest episode of Celebrity Big Brother. 

When the episode got underway, Omarosa and Keshia were on the block and wondering which one of them would be exiting the house. 

While it seemed like one of those two houseguests were leaving, Ross, Brandi, Ariadna, and Marissa floated the idea of evicting Shannon via the back door. 

This was fueled by paranoia because everyone was growing concerned that Shannon was getting closer and closer to working with James. 

Not helping matters was Omarosa, who was vocal to Ross about not being mad that he threw her up on the block. 

Omarosa knows how to manipulate situations, and that’s why she’s such a big threat. She and Shannon are about as scary as each other. 

The odd thing about all of it was that Marissa was getting excited about the prospect of even taking Shannon out. They knew each other before the game, but they don’t seem actually to like each other. 

“I really Rthought that we would make it to the end together,” Marissa said of Shannon. “I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but I want to backdoor Shannon.”

The veto competition played out live, and Marissa slid into victory. Just when we thought that Shannon might be getting put on the block, everything changed. 

Keshia was missing her child and decided the game was too much for her to deal with. She made an emotional plea to Marissa to keep the nominations the same. 

Somehow, news of Shannon being backdoored was doing the rounds, and everyone thought it was going to come to fruition. 

Eviction 2 Votes:

  • Shannon Elizabeth votes to evict: Keshia
  • Ariadna Guiterrez votes to evict: Keshia
  • Brandi Glanville votes to evict: Keshia
  • James Maslow: votes to evict: Keshia
  • Mark McGrath votes to evict: Keshia
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur votes to evict: Keshia
  • Metta World Peace votes to evict: Keshia

Keshia is the second evicted houseguest! 

Omarosa can breathe a sigh of relief, but will she be able to get the houseguests on her side to try and get Shannon out?

We have no idea, but something tells us the producers will be glad Omarosa is still inside the house.  She is TV gold. 

We still have another two weeks left with the houseguests, so the evictions will likely be ramped up to leave us with our final three. 

Shannon should watch her back because Omarosa is going to be gunning for her in retaliation for everything that transpired between them.

Celebrity Big Brother continues Wednesday night on CBS. 


Big Brother Recap: Who Was Blindsided?!?

Jessica Graf has been on the outs with her fellow houseguests for several weeks now, but as is always the case in the Big Brother house, the moment someone rises to power, everyone wants to be their friend. 

With Cody back in the mix, Jessica has surprisingly managed to keep her word to the other houseguests, but little did she know that Paul and his troops had been rallying to evict her pawn. 

When the episode got underway, Jessica seemed to think that Josh was losing his place in the house. Josh kept up the act very well and even asked Jessica if they can put their beef aside for the week. 

Jessica agreed because she thought he was on the way out the door, but her suspicions arose when Kevin informed her that “the kid with the glasses” is going home. 

Jessica then rallied the houseguests, and they all seemed firmly on board with taking Josh out. Poor Mark and Elena were not brought into the plan to take Ramses out, so technically they were telling the truth. 

When it came to the eviction, Ramses gave a nice speech about loving his time in the house, while Josh started calling Jessica names. 

  • Cody votes to evict: Josh 
  • Jason votes to evict: Ramses
  • Alex votes to evict: Ramses
  • Mark votes to evict: Josh
  • Elena votes to evict: Josh
  • Kevin votes to evict: Ramses
  • Matthew votes to evict: Ramses
  • Raven votes to evict: Ramses
  • Christmas votes to evict: Ramses
  • Paul votes to evict: Ramses

Julie revealed the 7-3 vote to the house and Cody and Jessica seemed like they already knew that was how it was going to play out. 

After the eviction, we moved swiftly on to the next Head of Household competition. It was a memory wall challenge, so Christmas managed to compete. They had to identify changes to images of previously evicted houseguests. 

  • Round 1: Elena is eliminated. 
  • Round 2: Mark, Alex, Cody, Kevin, & Josh are eliminated. 
  • Round 3: Everyone stays. 
  • Round 4: Everyone stays. 
  • Round 5: Christmas and Jason are eliminated.
  • Round 6: Matthew and Raven are eliminated. 
  • Paul wins!

When we returned to the house, Julie asked Jessica how she felt about the blindside. As expected, she called out her fellow houseguests for lying and said she is thankful she has the Den of Temptation. 

Julie then revealed to the audience that as a result of Jessica accepting the temptation, there would be a temptation battle unleashed on the house. 

In the next three weeks, there will be a competition that houseguests can choose to participate in. If they come in first place, they are safe for the week. 

Conversely, if they come in last place, they will become the third nominee for the week. 

Okay, so that’s a wrap on the latest blindside. 

What do you think of all the drama?

Christina El Moussa: Blindsided by Tarek! Furious! Ready to Move On!

Christina El Moussa has had it.

She has simply had it.

Earlier this week, we reported that Christina and estranged husband Tarek both wanted to move on from their joint business and pursue some kind of solo project after the current season of Flip or Flip completes filming.

In his effort to take this step, Tarek recently went ahead and dropped Christina from his real estate business, rebranding the agency Tarek and Associates.

But that move was made without Christina’s knowledge.

And she wasn’t happy with the way Tarek handled it.

“Tarek and Christina are keeping it together by a string,” an insider tells Hollywood Life, adding:

“She was blindsided by his new business ad. Their lawyers have been working out splitting up their assets and their joint businesses so she knew it would happen eventually, but not like this.

“He didn’t give her a heads up, which makes her incredibly mad. She’s furious.”

Granted, Christina has reportedly been angling for a HGTV spinoff of her own for quite some time now.

So it’s not as though she wants to keep working with her ex. She just wants the two of them to remain on amicable, mature terms.

Tarek, however, is now circulating ads in Orange County with just his face and name on them, looking to attract new business. 

But what about the 2017 Investor Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada earlier this month? What about the smiles plastered across Tarek and Christina’s faces while they appeared together in public?

Didn’t this mean all was good between the former couple?

Not quite.

“Tarek and Christina were definitely putting on a show for the public,” a witness said of this event, which took place on Februaty 10.

“When the cameras weren’t pointed at them, the smiles dropped and there was definite tension between them. They did not look happy to be together, at all.

“It’s clear they’re just going through the motions in an attempt to save their show.”

Ah, yes, the show.

The El Moussas are under contract for this season of Flip or Flop.

After they confirmed their split in November, the network released a statement of support, saying it would be happy to keep working with Tarek and Christina for the foreseeable future.

But it seems very unlikely that the series will continue beyond this year, not with damning accusations against Tarek running rampant around the Internet.

“To say that Christina is sick to death of all the Tarek drama would be an understatement,” a second insider tells Hollywood Life, expounding as follows:

“The past year has been nothing but stress and heartbreak for Christina. She desperately wants the divorce finalized so she can finally move on with her life and start afresh.

“Living in this limbo is beyond painful for her and she’s totally done with playing nice for the cameras.”

We can only imagine.

Tarek filed for divorce in December, a couple months after he and Christina issued a joint statement that referenced a troubling incident from last May in which the stars fought… Tarek grabbed a gun… left the house… and was confronted by cops in the woods.

“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” the pair late last year.

“We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed.”

Parents to a young girl and even younger boy, they concluded:

“We are committed to our kids and being the best parents we can be.”

Neither Christina or Tarek has said much in public since.

Both have updated their Instagram pages with sweet photos of themselves and their children.

However, the tension remains palpable.

“[Christina and Tarek’s] relationship is really bad and they are only pretending to be nice to one another,” adds another source.

“It’s all an act for the cameras, their fans and more than anyone, producers and network heads who could potentially give them their own solo shows.”
