Diane says all-star Big Brother has “kind of been sucking so far”

The latest evicted Big Brother 7 houseguest, Diane Henry, agrees that this season has been very lame so far. “I’m hoping from this week out, we’ll start to see some All-Star stuff — it’s kind of been sucking so far. It just really wasn’t the same experience (as BB5),” she tells the Calgary Sun.

Despite that, she says life in the house was “miserable. It was the worst four weeks of my entire life.” In fact, she was glad to leave, saying, “Leaving the house (Thursday) was actually more of a luxury than a disappointment.”

In part, she didn’t like the “spoiled-rotten people” whose “complaining was just outright ridiculous, which, in turn, made it worse for us. … The more you complained, the less they were going to give the house some alcohol … and they wouldn’t give us activities, something to keep us occupied, eccept (sic) for some kid’s toys.”

Kids’ toys? What torture.
