house guests told about attack (sort of).
The sequestered and isolated remaining Big Brother 2 house guests–including Monica, who lives in New York–have been given limited information about yesterday’s terrorism in New York and Washington, D.C. A person with a megaphone, possibly Mike Boogie, reportedly gave them slightly more information by shouting over the wall of the compound. Monica was told by the producers that her family members are okay, but like the others, is apparently still not aware of the severity of the destruction. If you want to, let CBS know what you think about the way the show is dealing with this via their feedback form.
