Cowboy and Nakomis aren’t speaking.

Cowboy and Nakomis aren’t speaking.
After their relationship was revealed to the CBS-watching world at the same time they learned about it, Big Brother 5‘s half-brother and sister Michael “Cowboy” Ellis and Jennifer “Nakomis” Dedmon are no longer speaking to one another. Cowboy tells The Daily Ardmoreite, “Right now we’re not in contact with each other. We’re letting things settle down–some time run.” He says he “had a feeling something was going to happen from the questions they kept asking during the interviews” but harbors “no hard feelings” against the show’s producers. He also discusses a change in his life since he left the house: The “no hugging” rule he and his fiancee have about other people has changed. “She doesn’t hug other guys and I don’t hug other girls. But since the show I have had fans, some who are really pretty women, who want to hug me and get their picture taken with me and April has been very understanding of the fans.” How sweet. So what’s next for everyone’s favorite summer 2004 reality TV halfwit? Why, a career in acting, of course! But first he wants to be a rodeo clown: “My friend and I have talked about becoming bull fighters (rodeo clowns) and right now I’m just doing some PR–hoping to get some commercials and do some acting.”
