Big Brother Day 6 – Housemates Fight Over Burnt Dinner
Mario’s ‘ex-wife’ did not say “happy birthday” to him yesterday (09.06.08).
Tension between muscleman Mario and Steph – who ‘married’ in a fake ceremony as part of a secret Big Brother task on Sunday (08.06.08) – has steadily mounted since entering the house.
But the rift escalated when 19-year-old Steph refused to pass on her best wishes to Mario – who turned 43 yesterday.
Earlier in the evening, Steph told Darnell she didn’t want to talk to Mario as it “felt weird” and she didn’t want to be false by wishing him a happy birthday because she doesn’t like him.
Mario and girlfriend Lisa spent half an hour in the Diary Room celebrating the special day, but later began speculating about the motives of other housemates, including Dennis who also failed to wish Mario a happy birthday.
Mario said: “Dennis is the mastermind. I don’t trust him, he’s playing a game and he’s not genuine.”
Blind Mikey – who acted as Mario’s ‘best man’ at the wedding – agreed that certain members of the group are fake.
He added: “You can tell which people are here just to win the money.”
Rachel burst into tears last night (09.06.08) after Alexandra launched a scathing attack.
Big Brother nasty Alexandra blasted sweet-natured Rachel after the Welsh beauty tried to stand up for ditsy Rebecca who burned the dinner.
Alexandra said “I hate martyrs. Trying to look like a martyr won’t help you.
“If she had shut her mouth and let me talk to Rebecca, then she wouldn’t be crying right now.”
Alexandra’s wrath began by telling Rebecca she shouldn’t have wasted the chips and let professional chef Rex do the cooking.
She said “People aren’t using common sense. Don’t pretend that you don’t understand, don’t act simple. Don’t act so thick.”
Spiteful Dennis added “Food is the most important thing. If you can’t cook why the f**k would you go in the kitchen and f**k it all up for 15 other people?”
After the row – which went on until the early hours – Rachel fled to the Diary Room sobbing.
Afterwards, 19-year-old Steph told Alexandra the way she was speaking to people was inappropriate.
