How did you happen to do Big Brother in the first place?
It was actually my then husband Gregg's idea. Gregg suggested that I fill out the audition tape and I never thought that Big Brother would put someone like me on it. So yeah, I filled out the audition tape.
Why do you want to do big brother again?
I want a second chance at a half million dollars. I'm hoping that it will help my pursuit for a comedy career. I'm hoping to get some kind of commercial agent out of this. So basically I want the visibility in the business to get some kind of comedy gig if I donít win.
What will you bring to the BB house that no one else will?
I'm hoping a unique sense of humor and a compassionate, nice guy personality which may be similar to Chicken George.
If you could make an alliance with any 2 people from all 20 possibles, who would it be and why?
I'm not going to give up that information because the other 19 people might be reading this.
Who is the LAST person you want to see back in the house, with you?
Once again I'm not going to say.
Who do you definitely want in the house with you?
I wanted Kent.
Everyone was asking about Kent.
That's nice to know. I want Kent to know that information too because I feel bad for the other 55 people who didn't make it into the top 20. I haven't talked to him since the top secret calls from Big Brother started coming since we were sworn to secrecy.
Whatís the one item you would bring inside with you?
It sounds weird but little simple luxuries like my pillow. Something comforting.
Did you have a strategy when you were in the house before?
It's interesting, I never thought I would never make it on the show. So I wasn't prepared, I was shocked. It was a totally different show than what I had seen on Big Brother 1 so I wasn't prepared and made up my strategy as I went along.
What would you do differently this time, from the first time you were in?
Have a strategy and this time be more flexible and not give up as easy. I feel that I gave up so quickly at times when I was in the house. I felt like it was all over. Especially when I got nominated I was like "I'm done."
Are you a little less emotional?
I donít know, I'm hoping I can mask my emotions but I won't know until I get there. One thing that I am honestly a little concerned about, the older I am the more impatient I become. I'm afraid that if someone pisses me off I'm going to fly off the handle like Monica did. You don't earn many friends going off on people so it's not a great strategy but I fear I wouldn't be able to hold my temper this time. I could get ugly. If you spent any time with me as a friend, if we got in certain situations, I get ugly and I become a different person and my friends are always shocked when they see that side and they don't recognize me.
How do you feel about the food not being peanut butter and jelly this season?
Oh I am scared! I don't mind peanut butter and jelly and to this day I eat it because it's good protein. I am afraid. I can't imagine, what if we have to eat snails and worms or stuff for a week? I know it's something horrible. Its going to be something unbelievable. I mean it's ALL STARS! I know they will drive us crazy. I know BB will really put us to the test.
What would you do if a good looking guy came on to you, in the house?
I have been single for 3 years. I would be flattered and I would consider it.
You would not have a problem having a relationship on national TV?
No, not at all.
Are there any potential All Stars you think are good looking?
Jase is very sexy. I think he is very sexy. I think he is hot.
What do you want out of big brother? The money, fame or both?
I want the money and if fame means helping my comedy career then I want that too. But I also want to be able to be financially stable so that I can do celebrity appearances to raise money for charity.
During your season you said you would like to start a charity if you won.
I do volunteer work for the Trevor Project and their website is http://www.trevorproject.org
and it is the only national gay and lesbian teenage suicide prevention helpline. It is 24 hours a day, every day of the year. I went through 30 hours of training to become a phone counselor and 10 hours a month I answer suicide calls. That is the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. It just makes your day. There's nothing better than helping save a life. I would hope everyone would find a little time and help a charity and help themselves. If you get down and depressed about your life go do charity and you will have the time of your life and help others.
Whatís the one reason why you considered not doing BB this season?
BB mentally screwed me up in the head for two years after the show. Meaning every night as I would fall asleep my mind would replay scenarios and replay strategies on how I could have won the game.
Saddest thing happened to you in the house last time?
It was hard for me to evict Krista because of the relationship I thought I had with her. But when I got out of the house I saw what she had said and it wasn't so hard.
What do you think about all the campaigning and commercials?
I'm a little saddened they [producers] haven't put me on the commercials more. It makes you wonder who their favorites are. I donít know.
Why should we vote for you?
Vote for me if you found me entertaining. If you enjoyed watching me during my season, and you want to see the lessons that I learned and how I'm going to play the game differently, cast your vote for me.
