Big Brother Gossip Show #311: Blame Amanda

It's been a crazy week in the Big Brother house, and we cover everything that happened. We talk about Elissa spoiling Survivor, Julie Chen bum-rushing Aaryn, and the blindside nominations of Amanda and McCrae. We also talk about the online nonsense of idiots that can't handle opinions that don't mirror their own. We also award a couple of t-shirts to iTunes commenters, and Mike surprises Colette with a big surprise!

Grab this episode from the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher. Or...


Special thanks to Mike and Colette for their work on the show, and Ash for her great audio work!

Honestly I am sick of Amanda ànd elissa. Amanda is rude and a bully and Melissa repeats her self over and over to any who will listen. I think hg ears are tired I know mine are. But I still want Amanda to go first.

I love your postings please keep up the great job I am traveling soon and I need my daily doses of BB.

I have to say you guys have been very hypocritical with your cheer leading for Amanda while you berate some the other house guests constantly during every one of your episodes. From GM, to Jesse, to Candice, to Elissa, and Helen all you guys do is rip them for characteristics you dont like about them. Yet you all whine all the time that your listeners and readers harrass you and call you names when you defend someone (mainly amanda). you do a natuonal podcast and write blogs about the show, deal with it it comes woth the territory, if you dont like quit. Seriously what is about amanda that has you all licking her nuts all the time. we have our favorites just as you guys do, you guys bitch about ours we bitch about yours get over it. people are not always going to agree with you guys so move on talk about the game not about how much people bitch Get over it! Amanda is a bitch, there is something wrong with that girl, Elissa is a fake ass person Yada Yada Yada we get it more analysis please.

Please don't get it wrong i like listening to you all and respect your opinions and appreciate the time and effort you guys give. I just think what you guys constantly complain about is same shit you guys do every week, it's a case of the kettle calling the pot black. Anyway I didn't mean for my last post to come off as harsh, if you're offended I'm sorry I truly am a fan of this site

your blog/pod cast is more negative than any comments you receive. you are so one sided in your opinions. I wouldn't listen to any more. you are supposed to be more neutral or is this just a hate everything about bb. look for another subject if not liking bb, and the woman on this panel is about as bad as Amanda. a real control freak. give it up guys.

Guys I'm starting to feel like this podcast has turned into a joke. The views of this podcast have become skewed in favor of Amanda or anti Elissa it is digesting and deplorable. The week before podcast you played clip after clip of everything negative Elissa's said about Aaryn, Andy and Amanda. This week you started bashing Elissa from beginning to end. I love Elissa and I hate how she said to Amanda about her wearing the one piece or the comments about Amanda's miscarriage. I don't like it, Elissa's knows better to say that and I hope she apologizes after the show. But why the clips of Amanda harassing Elissa was completely ignored on the podcast is so ridiculous. If Amanda is as smart as Colette says she is why didn't she rise above and not attack back. Be the bigger person and show maturity. No she followed into the same behavior as all big brother house guest do. I don't feel sorry for Amanda because she was stupid enough to tell these houseguest private stuff that they don't need to know. Amanda is the first person to say low blows to anyone in the house. She said Jessie was in her 5th showmamce and was pathetic, she borrowed Aaryn's Sheniqua comment and attacked Candice with it. Plus she couldn't help but tell Candice that that Howard wanted to have sex with her and said it in front of everyone to embarrass her. Colette said Elissa was a Narcissist well so is Amanda and they should both be on the Amazing Race as Team Narcissist. Amanda said horrible stuff about Elissa's son that you guys never played on the podcast. What you couldn't find the clips of it. Or how about when Aaryn and Amanda had another bashing sessions of all the races they don't like the night before Aaryn's eviction. I honestly feel this podcast lost its edge when Amanda's family said they listen to this podcast and Colette started to talk to Amanda's family. Please if you do podcast next season, do not like anyone!!!!! Just bash everyone equally please. Elissa has been getting killed from day 1, Amanda has been given a fee pass and I'm so sick of hearing Colette acting as Amanda's private PR firm. I hope Colette will be cashing in those checks in the mail soon.
Also I loved the interview Julie did with Aaryn. Aaryn is so fake and phony. She knew what she said because she said everything when she was in her mean girl mode. If Aaryn could remember why she and Elissa didnt get along I wonder why she and Candice didnt get along. Aaryn never flipped Elissa's bed over or asked her where is her class and what is she going to do? Julie wasn't disrespectful she kept her voice and demeanor in a professional manner. The crowd was just overreacting to Aaryn's ignorance answering questions like oh I'm from Texas and that is how we talk. Umm Jessie is from Texas to and yet she never said anything racist or homophobic. Danielle from bb14 was criticized for telling lies but at least she never said anything offensive!!
So I beg Colette, Scott, Mike and Ash to please find the negative clips of what Amanda's says and play them on the podcast next week as well as your usual bashing Elissa segment.

Digesting and deplorable is exactly the mood we were going for. Thanks! We're like angry little probiotics.

God, please don't listen to the whining of the catladies in the posts above! Keep up the great work, BBGossip Team! This podcast has become the highlight of my weekend and would hate to see you guys change anything about it!

First time listening to your podcast and it will be my last. Talk about ridiculous and one sided, well you guys achieved absurdity. Ok we get it, you hate Elissa. Well that's okay because I hate Amanda. She is the most reprehensible houseguest ever to be on Big Brother. Since you obviously have a problem with Rachel and Elissa the fact that you choose to support and flaunt the most disgusting foul mouthed racist bully says much for your ability to judge things in perspective. Therefore, please take your podcast and insert it where the sun don't shine!!!

You guys suck Amanda's ass so bad its unbelievable. Elissa says things about Amanda and youre horrified, Amanda insults Elissa and its warranted?

First and last time I listen to you 3 seahags. Ignoring the blatant bully behaviour by Amanda and excusing her shitty actions just because you hate that CBS cast Rachel's sister, is ridiculous.

Also complaining about the audience cackling at Aaryn is no different than what you 3 are doing to Elissa.

Haters 'gon HATE. This is the BEST and ONLY podcast I listen to. Keep it up, and ignore the Elvira lovers.

Listened for the first time and loved it!! Can't wait for the next one. I've been reading some blogs and looking at the comments and was amazed at how many ppl like Elissa!?!? Also noticed how viscous they are! I guess it does give me a little laugh to see how all the Elvira fans have not exonerated GM from all previous crimes though! Hehehe...what excuse will they come up for GM's latest comment...

Great BB recap and you are right on re Elissa glad to hear someone finally making sense in describing her condescendingly narcissistic antics!
September 1, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDenise
Elissa is far from blameless and does act self centered and patronizing at times, I don't think she's narcissistic. Amanda certainly is controlling, with her manic/depressive behavior and certainly everything has to be her way or she flips out, enraged and disbelieving that anyone could possibly disagree with her or not do exactly what she wants them to do.She has definite narcissistic traits, and when she doesn't get her way, she attacks and pouts. She acts like a spoiled child, yet complains about Elissa being spoiled She says she's loyal, but I don't see her being loyal to anyone but McCrae, and I think part of that is to control him. She seems to think that if she says something enough times, he will agree and do as she says. She controls him, and the thought of him being away from her for the rest of the game is driving her nuts. How can she control him if she's not constantly in his ear telling him what to do? Her and McCrae both seem to think the game is only for them to play, and everyone else in the house is stupid for not playing "their" game the way they want it played. Now they are backed into the corner, and if they are such outstanding players ,why didn't they know this would happen? Well, because no one is supposed to nominate them. Isn't it in the BB rule book? When Amanda was looking at the rule book last week, I thought, No Amanda, you're not going to find "you can't be nominated" in the rule book... The reason Amanda decided to mock Elissa last week was she had the nerve not to do exactly what Amanda wanted, and Amanda can't handle not having complete control over every situation to benefit herself. Then, there's Judd. I agree that it was unfair to bring back one of the evicted members of the jury, but I don't know why everyone seems to think that is Judd's fault. Should he have told production "no, I don't want to go back into the house, that wouldn't be fair"? He just happened to be the one to win that part of the competition. Should he not try to win because it's not fair production made the decision that they made? I honestly don't care who wins at this point, I think there are good and bad things to say about all ot the remaining HGs. I agree that Elissa shouldn't have advantages over the other players, but CBS decided to make it part of the game, and that's not Elissa's fault either. I feel bad for the families that are being harassaed by "fans" , that should never happen. I have mixed feelings about Aaryn's exit interview with Julie. The things Aaryn said and did were wrong, but I almost felt sorry for her. She is young, and very immature, and like anyone else, she has to learn from her mistakes. If Julie wanted to handle it on a personal level, because I know she was offended, and rightly so, she should have handled it on a personal level, one on one with Aaryn, not in front of the audience. I hope Amanda gets evicted this week, I would like to see if McCrae can play the game I think we all expected him to play from the beginning. How many times did he throw competitions to try to get Amanda to win? Yet, she didn't try to talk him out of it ... she expected him to do it...just saying..Amanda's loyalties lie only with herself and it doesn't matter who she humiliates (including herself) or hurts along the way.
