You've played a very dirty game, S, with all your lies, cattiness, betrayals (think how you threw Dom under the bus right after he said he trusted you), meanness and bullying, and yet, I think you'll take it because you have fooled the ones who will take you to the end (the JJ's).
And what kind of a mom leaves a little girl for the whole summer??? There has to be ice running through your veins!!
Oh and honey, please give up smoking. You look gross.
I think Shelly has played one of the best games in that house in a long time. In her pre-show interview she said she knew she would have to be a little ruthless and that she would have to lie and backstab because that is part of Big Brother! She is right about that! But she also said that it is only 3 months of her life and it's not who she really is...
I believe her because there are a lot of times we see the real Shelly shining thru. When she talks to these kids and gives them their pep talks, that is genuine. She cares about each and everyone of these houseguests on a personal level. Well, maybe not so much Rachel. LOL She tried with Rachel, she really did, but Rachel, being Rachel, was/is a hopeless case and Shelly isn't gonna waste anymore time and energy on her.
As far as the supposed lies she has told... Shelly is very smart. What she says is worded very carefully. When Rachel & Brendon first approached Shelly for a vote against Jordan, Shelly made it a point to say " Hypothetically
, if I were to vote Jordan out, would you consider taking me to F3?" Rachel took this and twisted it to sound like Shelly was, in fact, going to vote out Jordan AND turn her back on J & J for a F3 deal with her and Brendon. That was NOT true! Rachel was lying! Shelly never intended to vote out Jordan and NEVER intended to go to F3 with Brendon and Rachel. What she WAS doing was gathering information to take back to her true Alliance-Jeff & Jordan, PERIOD! She never made a deal with Dani, Kalia and Porsche either... That was a ' If
I were to work with you... and let's see what happens' type thing. She came into the DR and said straight out, my true alliance is with J & J but I would be remiss not to cover my bases on the other side of the house.
Now, what totally threw Shelly for a loop was the lie that Rachel told trying to 'out' Shelly. It freaked Shelly out because she was scared that J & J would believe it and kick her out of the alliance! AND Shelly really likes and respects Jeff & Jordan alot (also pre-show interview) and didn't want them to ever think she would do anything to hurt them OR their game! This was coupled with the stress of being in the house, on slop and missing her family.
As far as her leaving her family and Josie, many people have played this game with children at home! Do you think that married/single parents should not apply? When you are playing to benefit the kids, I say go for it! After all, Josie is with her dad and he is taking real good care of her!
As far as Dom, Cassi, etc... Evel Dick even told Cassi that he told Shelly about the the 4 person alliance and that they were working for the golden keys. Um, personally, being that I am a huge BB fan (like Shelly), If I had the chance to work with veterans that I loved and respected VS. New kids on the block that knew NOTHING about the game and were working to eventually get me out, I would go with the VETS and take my chances! It's a game!
BTW I think Rachel's main beef with Shelly is that she feels Shelly took her place in the J & J alliance and that now, all the other HG's talk to and LIKE Shelly as well! Rachel is about to explode with jealousy!
