The House was a silent cocoon for the greater part of the morning and not much drama was expected from the Housemates but, things escalated real quick when Alex insisted that Cee-C be specific with her references and bear the consequences. For Cee-C, this was a low blow that warranted more than necessarily audible retaliation, I fancy way to describe roof-raising noise.
Within seconds, both Housemates were way above their boiling points. When Cee-C ordered Alex to “shut up” and get sense, Alex spit back by referring to her as a “short human being” and told her to stop bad mouthing people behind their backs to which Cee-C responded by saying that was ,all that Alex knew how to do well, throw insults. It seems as though each insult that was hurled further fuelled the two fireballs and had there been no rules regarding physical altercations between Housemates, one of the two would have swallowed sand, no doubt.
As if that wasn’t enough to make first page on The Punch, Cee-C bricked her well laid foundation of belittling Alex by talking about how she’s been to places that Alex would never have access to. Following the ‘an eye for an eye’ philosophy, Alex threw her own blow by reminding Cee-C that despite all the places she’s been, they’re both in the Big Brother House, on the same level and hustling for the same thing.
To feed the furnace even further, Alex referred to Cee-C as senseless and shallow to which she retaliated by reminding Alex about her academic background, or lack thereof; talking about how she’s been changing schools because of her lacks of focus. This wasn’t well digested by Alex because she cracked Cee-C glass walls by telling her that she was at her beginning while Cee-C was at her peak. All in all, we witnessed a fiery ‘shoutathon’ and by the looks of it, there were victors; just a House divided due to the lack of tame tongues. Watch on o!
