'Big Brother' is a big nightmare
By -- Calgary Sun


Diane Henry says Big Brother: All-Stars should be renamed Big Brother: The Torture Edition.

The latest evicted houseguest, who rose to reality fame on BB5, says the producers of the show made her summer painful.

Its Big Brother lets make you miserable. It was the worst four weeks of my entire life, she says.

It was not fun. Leaving the house (Thursday) was actually more of a luxury than a disappointment.

Forcing the contestants to eat BB slop (some kind of corn-based oatmeal) and waking up the house every 15 minutes with annoying and loud messages from viewers before the veto competition this week, was only the tip of the iceberg, she adds.

I was in the house with a lot of spoiled-rotten people so the complaining was just outright ridiculous, which, in turn, made it worse for us, says Henry.

The more you complained, the less they were going to give the house some alcohol and they wouldnt give us activities, something to keep us occupied, eccept for some kids toys.

Im hoping from this week out, well start to see some All-Star stuff its kind of been sucking so far. It just really wasnt the same experience (as BB5).

Henry, 24, says the only negative thing about getting kicked off the show is being out of the running to win the $500,000 US prize.

Not only is she jobless (making it almost impossible to keep an apartment in L.A.), she owes thousands of dollars in student loans, medical bills and car debt.

It would have made a world of difference and just changed my life. Thats the biggest disappointment, says Henry, who has a degree in communications and marketing.

Im not trying to be the next huge actress. I just want to stay in the entertainment business no matter what.
