Reality TV World Message Board Forums
PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Thank you, Michael"
I thought the question-and-answer session with the first five evictees was quite interesting. Julie really danced around the issue of accusations of sexual harrassment leveled at Michael by certain members of the Fiendshit, though she never named names or even said exactly what she was talking about except for oblique references to "bad behavior toward women."

Of course, the question was designed to give Michael a chance to rant, thus tittilating the viewers. CBS must have been disappointed that Michael did not take the bait. Instead, he gave a very calm answer, saying that he had received a lot of positive feedback from people who watched the live feeds and knew what was really happening in that house.

It was good to hear somebody admit that what the editors cobble together for the television viewers to see bears very little resemblance to what many of us saw and heard transpire with our very own eyes and ears.

I agree to a certain extent. However - having watched the live feeds the last 3 BB's I have to say that they are just as controlled as the editing for the show is. All I know for sure is that

1 - Michael was asked NOT to touch someone (cant remember who) anymore.

2 - He continued to do so.

3 - He was asked a 2nd time to make sure he understood they were not joking around.

4 - He still continued.

That was on the live feeds as well as the real show. I do think that later Kaysar talked to him and he stopped which I give him a lot of credit for - however - for that one incident that I personally witnessed - it was harassment to the tee.

Well, we could debate our different interpretations of what happened and the level of blame that should be assigned --- and where ...

... but I was more interested in the larger point that somebody actually acknowleged that what CBS shows us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evening is not always an accurate representation of what happened in that house.

While I'm sure that CBS was happy to hear a plug for the live feeds, they may not have enjoyed the implied commentary.

That I can agree 100% on - on a side note - there was a lot of other "bad behavior" that was blamed on Michael that I disagree was harrassment. My one listed event is the ONLY thing I felt was indeed harrassment and to his credit when his friend and trusted partner told him to stop-it was wrong he did. Most do not.

I'm with you, HD. Michael showed pure class in his response. I especially enjoyed the looks on Jen and April's faces as he and Julie were discussing it. They were very uncomfortable--as they should have been. Both admitted that they made up the accusations because they knew it would put a target on Michael.
