I just find this whole thing weird and if true and I was Dani, I would be incredibly pissed at BB with how they handled the situation.
Dick was last called to the DR at 5:30 p.m. Daniele wasn't notified for 5 1/2 hours and after repeatedly asking BB to tell her what happened to her dad, she was finally called into the DR three minutes after Showtime ended. While she was asking, the camera crew communicated with her by shaking the cameras back and forth as a way of telling her "no." Why on earth wouldn't they ease a daughter's concern for her dad much sooner and toy with her with the cameras? Seems so odd to me.
On previous seasons, when a house guest leaves, the house is notified pretty quickly. Also...the house guests are always asked to pack up the departed house guest's belongings immediately, but that hasn't happened yet either (...as far as I can tell from Dani's conversations, she's the only person BB has talked to so far). Allison is always a quick phone call away, too, so why hasn't she shown up yet? When Chima was booted off the show, it happened fairly late at night and Allison arrived to deal with the situation pretty fast.
All of BB's actions so far are really unusual as compared to previous seasons, and considering his daughter is in the house and should have been notified immediately, it leaves me suspicious that Dick is truly gone for good.
But why would they single Dick out to take a vacation from the house and not anyone else? That's usually our job or they win a competition. Did Dick find something in the house no one knows about?
I dunno...just don't think this story is quite over yet.
