MAUREEN has confessed to Big Brother that she and Code are crazy about each other. Well, this should not be news at all. But the news is that she wondered whether they will come back from the penthouse as straight as they went in. Whatever she meant, only she and God can tell.
But she threw some more light, something rather worrying because her explanation was not exactly a saintâ€™s.
â€œWe could end up breaking the bed, the wall or whatever,â€ Maureen said. And I was there wondering to what her sentence alluded. Meanwhile, it is today that the Ugandan housemate gets her head-of-house treat to the famous Big Brother penthouse. And, of course, she will take her heartthrob Code to enjoy the rather cosy setting in that compromising place. And who knows? Big Brother could take them to an even cosier place. I see these two literally â€˜eatingâ€™ at each other like they were hired.
But let us just pray they keep away from a â€˜Gaetanoâ€™. One would argue that they are two consenting adults doing their thing and the like, which is true. But God forbid, not on television, hell, no. With human minds, you just cannot be sure what to expect, especially with Codeâ€™s Tuesday night revelation that he wants to make love to her.
These two discussed serious love issues like the legal bound. After Maureen complained of Code taking her for granted, the Malawian outdid himself explaining how he adores her and looks at a future with her.
Well, the possibility of having sex not withstanding, the treat should be well-deserved, especially after a hectic week of heading the big-headed â€˜widowsâ€™, Bertha and Lerato.
When it turned out Tuesday morning that Big Brother went on holiday in Zanzibar, the two snakes took it upon themselves to make Maureenâ€™s leadership tenure a living hell. They assigned themselves her roles and disrespected her. They even shot down her idea of having the housemates sing a song about the people they miss while in the house. They booed her, saying the idea lacked originality. Well, she later stood her ground and demanded that Bertha gives her a little respect, to which Bertha took the defensive. Since Big Brother is absent, the snakes had their way. So a penthouse treat would be deserving for Maureen.
There will be no diary room sessions until Big Brother returns. He left the housemates an automated machine which has stopped at nothing to fool the housemates. Meanwhile, Ofunneka and Kwaku return to the house today ahead of the househead task tomorrow. Evict Bertha. Type Vote Bertha and send to 15626 (MTN), 5626 (UTL), 0903015626 (Celtel).
