BB9Dish - Ya Gotta Have it!

The DishChicks are back and ready to blog Big Brother 9!!
At bb9dish, we cover the Big Brother Live Feeds, so much of what we write could be considered a spoiler for those who only watch the broadcast on CBS. Now, we don't understand why anyone would choose to do that, since it's like forming an opinion based on 1/10,000th of the information, and they could at least try the feeds for free, but what do we know?! Check bb9dish often for Updates, videos, pics, chops, opinions, etc. xoxo, C-n-C

The Rant is On

2:22pm BBT
KITCHEN
Sheila, James, Matt
Josh comes to the kitchen: Round 1.
Josh: Vote time, tickin' away guys. Will people keep their promise, or will they break it? Will they get caught in lies? Will they get taken down? We will find out today in 2.5 hours. Will their family get totally ripped apart on tv? Yes they will, on national tv tonight. Don't you worry.
Sheila: I'm goin in and talk to the DR. That is not gonna happen.
Josh: Will a teenager regret their mother ever went on the show?
Sheila: You're a coward. Allison is gonna have a talk with you. Why don't you get in a man's face... like a man.
Josh: Out of work, craig's list searchin' nobody.
Sheila: Come and slap me, put me out of my misery.

Sheila yells at him.

Sheila: I need to go to the diary room. I've given this kid so much respect... No I'm not gonna cry..
James: If you didn't want anyone to attack your kid, you shouldn't have given him so much material.



2:30pm BBT
Josh is ranting to the others. Matt is trying to convince him not to bring the son into it... It's not the kid's fault. Josh agrees that's true, but it's game, and she shouldn't have brought him into it. He says if he had a family weakness, he would never mention it within the walls of the house.

Josh: Anyone she's wronged. I'm gonna take it out on her.
James: No violence.
Josh: No, of course not.
James: But you can't let her bait you into it either. Just take 5 seconds off, regroup...
Josh: What's she gonna do, get Allison Grodner to talk to me?

lol.. TRIVIA - instantly at the mention of her name...

2:30pm BBT


2:38pm BBT - Feeds are back.
Kitchen
Matt, Ryan, James.
Josh is like a caged animal, pacing the house.
James follows him into the bathroom, they exchange a brief word.
Josh returns to the kitchen to tell Ryan and Matt how much it makes him ill to be voting one of them out instead of her, and rails on a bit.
Matt: You do make valid points.
Josh: Yeah. She f'd both of you. F'in c*nt.

Josh leaves. Ryan and Matt discuss the promises Sheila has made them both.

2:45pm BBT
Sheila comes out of Diary, tells Joshuah they want to see him.
Sheila: You're a coward, You're a friggin' coward. Go talk to a man that way.

BB: Joshuah, please come to the Diary Room.

Josh leaves.

Sheila: I have a minor. It's against the law. He's crossed legal limits already a few times this game. It's disgusting.

Matt tells her he stuck up for her in her absence.

Sheila: It doesn't matter. You're not gonna cross a line that's a legal issue. No amount of...

Josh is an idiot. He thinks he can blame his behavior on being a "kid"... 25 years old, you're grown, he's not a kid. He should know better.

And saying he's gonna get vengeance for everyone? Ridiculous. He needs to worry about himself. Stop trying to defend people that don't can do it for themselves, that he (Josh) can't stand anyway. Josh is just looking for airtime.

He's saying that it's all a game, yet he's pissed about Sheila lying and decieving?

Josh said earlier in the game that he is "always" aware of the camera's, so I think he's definitely putting on a show.

There are people in this world who you sense are powerful just by their presence of being, then there are people who have to constantly tell or show you something to give you the impression that they are powerful.....Josh is the latter. What a discrace! So sad....

I don't think talking about someone's child is illegal. It might not be nice, but it's not illegal. Sheila is just sounding like she's scared right now. In my opinion, it would be better to ignore him. She's just giving Josh more incentive to keep it up.

What legal issue? I've only been a lawyer for 15 years, and clearly has been one in her mind for 45 - but she signed a waiver and truth is always a defense to defamation. Besides which, he hasn't directly said anything about the kid. Defamation required actually defaming someone, not just being a nasty prick.

I'm not saying he's a swell guy, but Sheila is a fool who held up her son like a damn lightening rod.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Lois - the very first episode (first week) Sheila told the whole world that her son had a disability. If I remember correctly, a mild form of Autism – which is quite common (though I may be wrong and please tell me if I am!). Here's my thought on that - the fact that Sheila brought it up is reprehensible. Josh has been fairly cautious not to directly discuss the disability, and only reference the vague statements Sheila made. And right or wrong, truth is a defense to defamation.

What so freaking sad is that Sheila didn't have enough brain matter to keep her son’s business to herself. I don't care if the world sends teddy bears and flowers, it's none of our business.

Once again, I'm not saying Josh is a swell guy - but anything that is said about that boy came out of Sheila's mouth first.

I want to add this though - I have no doubt that Sheila loves her son very very much. I am sure she is a good mother, and some bad judgment under these very unusual circumstances does not make her a bad person or bad mother. She was however, foolish, and very sadly her kid is going to deal with the consequences. Just in case Sheila's son is out there, we all know you got unfairly caught in this and we wish you, and your mom outside the house, only the best.

I don’t like Josh’s tactics, but he is entertaining. The house would be VERY boring if we had to listen to Sheila 24/7. I still chuckle thinking about the scene in the pool when Josh was talking to his imaginary team. No matter what anyone says, this game is hard. If you sign up to play, you need to be ready for whatever is thrown you way (if you openly talk about it in the house – its FAIR game).

There are so many great comments from everyone – it’s hard for me to find something “brilliant” to add, so I’m just going to lay here with my blue blankie and watch the on-going circus play out. It’s a game, I love it!!! Let the show begin. Tick tock, tick tock.

This is the nature of this game. 9 players in the house at the moment and there can only be 1 winner of 1/2 a mil. second place is not to shabby either. everyone deals with stress in their own way but I am sick and tired of Sheila always trying to get a sympathy by using the single mom excuse. Everyone there can use the money and being a single mom doesnt not make you more deserving of it. I agree that Josh should not bring her son into it, but she is only to blame for that since she keeps saying "dont bring my son into it" well guess what you just provided him with your weakness and this game is a take no prisoners game. Anything and everything is fair game except for your physical safety. Dee

While I do think Joshua goes too far it what he says! It does make for good drama. What is bugging me the most right now is Sheila and her side (N/M) constantly calling J/S/J/C hypocrites. Yes they are! BUT they ALL are! Sheila is lying through her teeth or seriously deluding herself if she thinks she or Natalie have not talked bad about Joshuah or any other houseguest behind their back. They are all doing it! It's the name of the game. She can't trash whoever (and yes she has said some vile stuff herself) and then flip when they do it to her. I wish they would call her on it. Seriously like that group is really the "good people" that God is going to avenge. Not hardly - not any "good people" in the house. And what woman really prefers to fight pulling her and hitting - most women prefer words. Words in this context aren't typically illegal. I so hope Josh, Chelsea or Sharon wins HOH tonight! I want Sheila to finally get that she is NOT the toughest/strongest competitor in the house - totally delusional. But leave her son alone - I'm a mom too!

Lawyer of 14 years - they waived their rights to sue for defamation or intentional infliction of emotional distress as to the corporation and other houseguests. And they are public figures. Besides, what are the damages? She's pissed? Maybe the kid could sue his mother - he may have a cause of action - as the majority parent she negligently waived his rights and made statements that put him, a minor who can't contract for himself, in harms way. He'd still have to prove damages. Maybe he should sue for an injunction for Sheila to shut her trap.

Josh is in the clear. Being an asshole is just not illegal.

I don't understand why she signed the waiver for a minor if she doesn't want him brought up. If she's going to be attacked, she should be attacked directly, not through her family members, who aren't there to defend themselves. Yes, she brought her son into it, but that doesn't justify Josh threatening to "rip her family apart." The threat he's making has nothing to do with game, he's just bitter and wanting some air time...so more guys will recognize him at gay bars after the show.

Newsflash Joshy, you're not "evil," you have your own flaws that can be attacked (and I don't understand why no one does!), and if this is your "game," you're going home very soon.

But I can't deny that this is entertaining, and we're all here excited about tonight's show to see who gets ripped a new butthole. Sad, but it is what it is.

I know you're like me. None of these people are likable but at least give us drama or people scrambling to save themselves. None of the houseguest will be winning any Nobel Peace Prizes, so give me secret alliances, back stabbing, trash talking and eventually someone smart enough to out lie the other houseguest.

I love when someone doesn't see it coming and then Boom, they're out of the house. The year Marcellas didn't use the veto and then got voted out, that's what I call game play. The shocked look on their faces is priceless.

The houseguests have talked about the waivers in their contracts for as many seasons as I have had feeds. Besides, it's not speculation that these contract prohibit liability, that's what contracts do, without those waivers everyone would be sued all the time on these shows, and all they could air is court TV.

They can waive away their civil rights (not "civil rights," rights under civil law) but not criminal rights. What that basically comes down to is they can talk as much crap as they want, but can't hit each other over the head with a frying pan, even if it happens in their favorite cartoons.

ROFLMAO with Carolyn. You tell it Jane. (big hugz.)

I'm not a lawyer of any years but I was a paralegal before retirement. I know a bit about the law.

First of all when you sign a contract of a show such as BB, you give up all rights you might have in the outside world. Plain and Simple... The end. I believe that holds true for anything except physical violence. Josh is way to smart for that and I think ths 5 foot restriction on him is WRONG. Getting in someone's face is they way to break them and it has been done on past shows and will always be as long as BB continues.

Josh is not outside the house so how can he be attacking her son to any extent that would cause legal action? And I don't think Josh would ever do that. In the house he is playing his game and playing the character that is expected of him, and I suspect prompted and pushed on him before the show and now in the DR.

We can find reason to hate or love every member of the cast in every year. We watch for entertainment and wait for them to tear each other apart as we tear them apart in comments on blogs (and this one is the best on the internet. All praise to Carolyn for reporting it fairly. We can't even tell from her blog who she loves or hates.)

I will say if Josh is evicted for this tiny attack or as a compilation of the season, it will be my last time to watch the show.. EVER.

I've always felt the show was very scripted and predetermined by Gro(d/a)ner & Gang.. Grodner or Groaner? :P) This year I have been thinking I might be wrong but if Josh is penalized for anything he has said, then I say the show is fixed. They want Sheila to win.

End of my rant for the moment. ;)

Jane @ 3:39 - As you already know, I am a big fan. However, I have to sliiiightly disagree with you about Sheila: "some bad judgment under these very unusual circumstances does not make her a bad person or bad mother. She was however, foolish, and very sadly her kid is going to deal with the consequences."

I believe it was more than bad judgment. I feel she has made it quite clear from the beginning that she wanted to talk about her son (while not feeling the other HGs had a right to even mention him) and use him as a shield if anybody tried to use him in any rant against her.

She knew before coming into the house that she did not have to sign a waiver to allow her son to be mentioned at all. She signed it, knowing she wanted to use him, but evidently believing signing the waiver gave only her the right to mention him. (Isn't THAT typically Sheila.!!?!?)

She claims to not knowing what to expect when she came into the house, but has discussed (with a certain degree of knowledge) at least three other seasons. So, either (1) she knew what she was getting into when it came to family being used as psychological ammo against HGs but didn't care; or (2) if she didn't know, she didn't care enough about her "son who didn't sign up for this" to bother checking into things before agreeing to sign the waiver. (Sooooooo protective.)

As is so typical of Sheila, she wants it both ways -- she can talk, nobody else can. She can lie and manipulate others, but they better not try that on her, or she will scream "foul" and "illegal."

I, like you, want her son to know that I am truly sorry for what he *might* be going through, but the fault lies squarely in the lap of his mother. I hope he has a huge discussion with her about respecting his privacy when she gets home (which, for me, as she gets worse and worse can't be too soon).

BTW, I say *might* because I made a post in the Morning section which was about Sheila talking with Adam last night, telling Adam that she had an adult watching her son and she was sure they would know what to let him see and what not to let him see, so those HGs who thought they would get to her through making her son see them attack her were going to be hugely disappointed. (This statement sure makes it look to me like Sheila knows exactly what she is doing with her continually mentioning her son and then raising "h*ll" when someother HG does the same. Of course, Sheila doesn't play those psychological games, that is not her style.)

Anyway, you go girl. I just had a teeeeensy problem with your being so magnanimous in forgiving Sheila her "bad judgment." :)

Physical threats is a grey area. In the real world enough threats would lead to a restraining order. Only violating the restraining order would be a crime. The five foot rule seems to be BB's version of a restraining order. It really depends what the contracts say. Probably it's at the discretion of the producers. Someone did get kicked off one season for threatening a houseguest with the green plastic knife, right? I think they literally held it up to the neck and threatened to cut. Apparently that's the line - so far.

Jane @ 3:08 PM

You absolutely do not have to be a lawyer to have legal mind.

Regardless of age limit common sense would tell anyone that false and misleading statements are certainly defamatory. A statement does not even have to be actually false but if it is misleading than that is a breach of law.

Truth may be an absolute defense but is does not excuse the Nature of the defendant. You must not be following closely enough. (Neither am I thank you) But what Josh has done and is attempting to do, and most certainly the NATURE and way he has gone about doing it most certainly could be proven as Slander. There are enough examples on the message boards and video clips to prove it. Get the facts straight.

You seem to be building your argument around in or out of the BB house. I am not sure how this "Waiver" thing comes into play in the BB house but certainly in real life people cannot act the way Josh has without real life repercussions, IF the plaintiff had the fortitude to see it through. If James wrote something in his Blog that would be libel. Obviously CBS knows when and where to step in when necessary.

As far as the son being a "Lightning Rod" that is just an atrocious statement. Most people who have been following this show from Week 1 know this is not the brightest group and very few if any are real thinkers. The mob rules mentality dominates this year.

I applaud Sheila for cutting trying to cut the head off of the monster before the monster got too "Technical". .I would have much rather he gave himself enough rope to hang himself Josh himself thought that was so funny earlier in the season when it came to putting down another woman to make himself feel better. From a mothers' perspective I can see why she would want to shut the boy up.

Funny how all of Joshs' "Big Moves" wind him up in the DR with a reprimand or a five foot rule. Way to go Joshy boy!!

As for Josh and his crew it's like watching the Nerd Herd from season 6. They were disliked for their hypocricy, not because they trash talked. Josh is the same, he does the same things he calls others out for (as does James). There's no way he's attacking Sheila for the "rest of the house." He doesn't care about them. He has some kind of emotional need to do this. He's 25 and says he's a kid. This means his emotional IQ must be lower than the average 25 year old. I hope he's ejected from the show.

OK, I'm on one more rant. Feed Trivia gives me too much time to think.

I can site 2 incedents off the tip of my fingers that have been similar in past seasons. Josh has done no worse than the following.

Hurricane Howie's attacks on April/Busto and her husband, job and don't forget her little dog too. (If I were on the show and talked about my dog, which is just like my child, and his handicap, then I open myself up for the same as what Busto got and what Sheila is getting.

Fireman Eric and his Sheep. (The Good People *CHOKE*) He provoked Michael into a near physical fight because he THOUGHT Michael said something about his family.

Does anyone else recall these two seasons, and maybe add more from other seasons.

Jane - Don't know what you have to feel guilty about. Parts is parts, facts is facts. Calling Sheila out on her chosen method of play is no worse than calling Josh out on his. Not saying you called Josh out, but plenty of others have (and from the tone of their posts, there is no guilt involved in doing so).

Everything I've read from you seems to be well-thought-out, without any unfair bias one way or another. That's what I like about your posts. I unfortunately have to say that I find way too many posters seem to have favorites and let their desires to see these people win the game fog their vision when it comes to the actions of any other player.

I really don't care who wins (as long as it isn't one of the "good people"), but I do admire the way MOST of the HGs are playing -- yes, even Josh. The kid makes me cringe every once in awhile, but he understands it is a psych-out type of game and is pretty good at "psyching 'em out" without toooo much complaining about the way he's being treated. Shebot could take a lesson or three from Josh's playbook.

"Vengance is mine," sayeth Joshua. Boy, Natalie and Sheila should be so honest. I can respect outright psychotic behavior which admits what it is. Those who act that way but claim to be "good people" are just fooling themselves and not the people they're trying to convince.

Keep up the unvarnished and unbiased commentary. It's refreshing to read.

The knife incident was in season 2. It was not a plastic knife... but a REAL bread knife that Justin held to Krista's neck jokingly saying "I am going to kill you". Both were drunk... and obviouly he didn't mean it. However, having a knife to one's throat is anything but just a threat. An accident like a slip leading to injury could really have happened. After this... no more real knives in the house.

Both those incidents happened as you mentioned.

Every year there are moments when one person is being targeted for whatever reason. Sheila has brought it upon herself. Sure, I feel for her son... and I am glad he only watches the show. But he's practically 17, and I am sorry, at some point one has to grow a shield. After all, 'we' send kids off to war not much older than that for some real ammunition practice. I believe Sheila makes mountains out of mole hills and is a master manipulator. If she wins HoH she can get her revenge.

I did not say anything about Morality but most laws are based on some sort of moralistic standard otherwise there would be no guidelines and henceforth Anarchy. So the two go hand in hand.

Sorry but I am not in the USA or even the North/Central/South American mega continent. I do always find it interesting how people everywhere tend to put a spin on things for their own perspectives.

Everyone is playing the victim and everyone is playing the ass and everyone is playing the good person. It's nothing new and Matt is not nicer than James who is not nicer than Sheila--they are all two-faced in this game.

I get tired of reading comments saying "I hate James and Josh for being liars and I love Matt for telling it like it is" They've all lied and they've all 'told it like it is.'

That said, I'm glad Sheila's on the defensive. She thinks she runs the house when clearly she doesn't. If she or Nat don't win HoH, one can kiss the house goodbye. I think even Ryan would put both of 'em up just to save himself.

I am not a lawyer or psychologist, just a regular person who has 2 common sense words to explain this phenomenon: "Sheila" and "Chaos".

Do you ever get the feeling that she's saying "not" to talk about her son so that everyone WILL talk about her son? It's called ATTENTION GETTING tactics. Like I said, Sheila = Chaos. For what it's worth, Josh is a Chaos lover too.... maybe they hate each other b/c they're so much alike!

14 year L - that's an interesting point. I don't know the specifics of CA law enough to have a response. It would/could be very interesting if someone someday tries to sue on that theory. If the parent can't contract away the child's rights and the child can't contract themselves, what rules apply? I would assume the producers have given this some thought - and can only guess they keep Josh in line enough so he doesn't overstep - or they both could be liable.

So far I don't think Josh has defamed the boy; Josh really hasn't said anything directly about him that isn't factual. But I suppose it could happen any minute.

Tella,

I agree with your comment about "good people" vs. "bad people." I've always found the former hypocritical, sanctimonious, and, frankly, boring. The trouble is that this year the "bad people" are like caricatures. It's like the houseguests feel they have to outdo their predecessors. Josh comes off as a poor impersonation of Evel Dick. E.D.'s attacks were as mean-spirited as they come, but seemed more spontaneous and to-the-point. Josh's feel calculated (I'm not saying E.D's weren't, only that they didn't seem so) and he's a one-trick pony. This is it: Attack the next female in line by attempting to be physically imposing while spouting off tired, misogynist slurs with a campy flair. I couldn't help but root for E.D. With Josh, I find myself rooting for the subject of his tirades.

That said, I don't root for them too much. That's the problem with this year's show: No characters i love to hate. Only hate or ambivalence. I can't even muster up the energy to care much about Nat and Sheila's bible-thumping, yet I shouted at the TV when it was Amber and Jameka. Yuck!

Plus, I have to say that the "America's Choice" fiasco was the stupidest idea the producers have ever employed. Ryan had just pulled off one of the all-time BB coups, to have it undone by a bogus "twist." Looks like BB has jumped the shark.

I actually swore I wouldn't watch the show anymore after that stunt, yet I find myself frantically looking online for the latest update. I must get a life.

Consider this, like I said in a follow up TO JANE, I do always find it interesting how people everywhere tend to put a spin on things FOR their own perspectives and FROM their own perspectives.

Josh is a complete idiot. Does he realize there is only ONE Evel Dick? He's making a fool out of himself by trying to pull this Mr. Tough guy attitude. I hope he's the next to go!!!

I don't really like anybody in the house either. Just enjoy them as far as entertainment value... since this is a show after all.

I thought it was so funny as soon as Josh did not get HOH he became a whiney little baby. What happened to the "I am going to make her life miserable" He certainly was wrong on who was going to get it! Also so when Chelsia watches the show back and sees how many time James throws her under the bus, I do not think there will be a relationship! He is very fast to say he does not care who they put up.. just do not put HIM up! He is a beggar to! I am super excited that the power shifted this week!
