From what I've read about the fire, Nick called the producers to tell them and they all decided not to tell her because there is nothing she can do and they didn't want it to ruin her finale experience. I took it to mean that Nick was involved with that decision. I read that someone said Annie tweeted that she was on the plane with Brit's mother. I'm sure that between Nick and Brit's mom, they know whether or not its in her best interest to tell her today, or wait until after the show tonight. I read that while the house was probably a total loss, they did manage to retrieve some of their belongings. Not to make light of a fire in any way, but I guess I think that it can't be a totally devastating loss for them, or I don't see them a) continuing with their plans to go to CA, or b) keeping the information from her until after the show. It sounds like all they lost are possessions, and while I know that is horrible enough, they are lucky Nick was able to get himself and the animals out. I agree, i hope they had renter's insurance. I've had friends that lost everything in a fire and had no option for replacing the most basic items because they didn't bother to spend the few dollars a month for the insurance. I sincerely hope Brit wins AFP now.
