Brendon apologizes publicly: “I was stupid” (video)

Brendon Villegas admitted to cheating on Rachel Reilly, who he met on Big Brother this summer, and later posted an eight-minute apology video to YouTube. He then deleted it, and deleted or cleared his Twitter account and all of its confessional tweets. But the video has, of course, survived.

Brendon says in the video, below, that he made it “to explain what happened” and says “I was stupid,” and explains how the affair begin after an online conversation “went way further than it ever should have gone.” Brendon suggests Molly, the woman he cheated with, tried to “blackmail me and threaten me,” but admits that “three times that I’ve been emotionally unfaithful,” so he cries and pleads with Rachel to “find it in your heart to forgive me” and insists “you’ll always have my heart.”

Get some cookies and milk before you settle in to watch this awesomeness:

Because this is ripe for parody, someone imagined Brendon’s confession to Rachel, and someone else rewrote Brendon’s confession to be a bit more honest, which is below. But it’s hard to top that video above.
