Happy Monday to you all! I’m in a bit of a rush today, but I wanted to drop a few lines since I have been out of town and haven’t posted in a while. There are just a few things that I want to mention. One is www.realitylives.com. It is a great new forum soon to be a great new site where there are message boards for not only Big Brother and other reality shows, but also music, books, daily chitchat and other topics. It is not a hate site, so it may not interest some of you, but personally I really love it. You can also check out my myspace page at www.myspace.com/amythequeen. Also, if you are interested in hunting, fishing and the outdoors, you might want to check out the Outdoor Network on September 5th to see my brother-in-law’s “Jurassic Park” deer farm/hunting club. I’ll post the web address and exact time the show will air as soon as I have the information. I went there after Christmas, and it is really a fun place. I call it Jurassic Park because he breeds some kind of special deer, and they are HUGE. Plus he has such great security that it reminds me of Jurassic Park. I want to also add that my blog is for people who have FINISHED elementary school. If you can’t read, please don’t try to send comments, because they really don’t make much sense. A great example would be a comment that I received recently pertaining to one of my earlier blogs about having a lot of people visiting my house during our 4th of July festivities. The comment (which my web people obviously deleted because it didn’t make sense) went on about having a bunch of people living with me, when actually my husband and I live alone with our baby puppies. If the poster had been able to read the post, they would have understood that I had visitors rather than roommates. So again, if you can’t read, maybe you should visit www.hookedonphonics.com rather than my blog. Anyway, that is about it. Be sure to check out the forum at www.realitylives.com, and have a great week!

I love Danielle, and that is no secret. When she is not locked up in the BB house, we talk almost everyday. She is one of my best friends, and I love her dearly. I am SO proud of her winning HOH this week! I knew that she wouldn’t use the position to put up floaters and try to kiss ass to everyone who is considered to be dangerous players. And I was right! Although it was way risky to put up James…and as we now know that plan totally backfired, I STILL think she will put up another strong player against James, rather than tossing in a floater to appease the stronger alliances. As she said on the show Sunday night, she is there to play the game. I really hope that James doesn’t go on Thursday, but you just never know. I know the show tomorrow night is going to be great. Maybe I’m biased, but I really think that Danielle being HOH has made this week just a little bit more entertaining than what I’ve been watching for the past month. Go Danielle!

Well well well….I should have known when I was interviewed for the Big Brother segment that it would turn out the way that it has. ALL of the questions I was asked by the interviewer were about Janelle and Marcellas, AND the interviewer ASKED me if I thought Janelle looked like a transvestite. Granted I haven’t thought of that in a long while, but when the pictures of the season 6 HG’s were first posted on cbs.com, my friend Michael and I DID think that she was a transvestite and that it was a twist in the game! Anyway, I just answered their questions honestly…like they asked me to do. Also…the comments that I made were rather edited…example: I called James shady – not Marcellas. Also, I said that Janelle couldn’t hold a candle to me when it came to Marcellas and I being FUNNY. That was edited to say “inner beauty”. I’m not denying that I said mean stuff about Janelle, because I did. I said some pretty mean stuff about Will too, it just didn’t make the show. The regular Big Brother viewers should by now be completely aware of the role that editing plays in the show. And let me add that my interview was done at 12:30 on a Sunday, so I was NOT drinking. The wine that I was holding was of course Big Brother’s idea.Up until now, I have been a regular poster on Jokersupdates.com. I did chats with them, and even did a chat one night when Kaysar failed to show up. I really liked that website, and everyone there has always been nice to me…up until now. I have to say that if these people at reality websites expect people who are actually ON the shows to post and chat there, they should try be the least bit nice to the reality people who visit their sites. And I really can’t figure out why people take a reality television series SO seriously. I watch it, and I think it is a good show, but some of the posters get SO angry. It can’t be healthy. Anyway, now not only have the Jokers people said really mean things about me, they have said really mean things about my husband as well. So let me just say a few words to the people who are obsessed with Janelle and think that she is the “end all be all” of the Big Brother game. Give up on the “janellousy” bit. I’m sure that word was created by a 500 pound woman snacking on a box of Twinkies. I am not jealous of Janelle…oh and let me tell you why. You see, I don’t have to parade around in very little clothing peddling drinks to dirty old men in clubs to make a living. For the record, that is what a “VIP cocktail waitress” does. I don’t have to rely on looks and looks alone to survive. And while we’re on the subject of jealously, I have to say that a few of the comments written about me seemed pretty damn jealous to me. Someone posted something about how ridiculous I sounded by saying that I live on vacation. Well guess what?! I do! Why would that sound ridiculous unless you are jealous that you have to get up and go to work everyday? I just don’t see the point…of course I guess I just don’t see the point of many things…like why many of the Big Brother viewers worship a girl who is somewhere between stripper and Hooter’s girl. And for the record, I was a Janelle fan last year. I really wanted to see her win season 6. I thought that she was a really good player up until last week when she sold out her alliance and fell for Will’s manipulation. So there is the story. If you don’t like me because of what I said about Janelle…well…I really don’t care. I have plenty of friends already. I just wanted to set the record straight! Have a great day, because… I am!

When I was in the house, we used to say “good job” a lot. If someone won a competition – “Good job Eric!” If someone lost a competition – “Good job Jason!” If someone took a nap on the hammock – “Good job Roddy!” We used that phrase many many times everyday. Well, I just want to say, “Good job James!” Not only am I happy that he nominated Will, I am really happy that he nominated Jace to replace Chicken George. And while I’m patting people on the back, let me also say, “Good job Chicken George!” I think it is totally funny how people talked about what an easy week it was going to be. Just kick out Chicken George and move on to next week. Everyone felt safe and happy…but Chicken George may not be as dumb as his name suggests. He threw everyone a curve ball by winning that veto. I, for one, am proud of him for pushing James’ hand and making him nominate someone else. Of course when he won the veto I knew he would use it to save himself. I mean, who has the ability to save himself and doesn’t use it?! Oh…that’s right! It has happened before. But I knew that even Chicken George was smarter than that. As much as Will gets on my last nerve, I really hope to see Jace leave this week. I really want Will to be the first person on the jury. He has complained and complained about not wanting to go to the sequester house, and I just think it would be hilarious for the house to keep him until the first week of sequester…then kick his ass to the curb! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA – Evil Witch Kackle! Then I would have to say, “Good job House!”

Damn! Damn! Damn! I really wanted Danielle to win that HOH competition! I have to say though I am glad it went to James since Danielle didn’t win it. BUT…what will James do? That is the big question for me at the moment. Did I not hear James just last week talking with Janelle about how Kaysar should have put up Will and Mike Boogie? I think I did…several times in fact. So here it is buddy! Let’s see if James can step up to the plate and do what needs to be done. I am dedicating the song “Man Up” from the “Hustle & Flow” soundtrack to James this week. I can’t wait to see if he will play it like a man and nominate real threats, or if he will play it like a baby and nominate floaters. And why are they trying to evict all of the floaters this early? Those are the people who are usually most easily swayed. Why not keep them until later and dump the good hard core threats in the beginning? Although I am not a big Season 6 Alliance fan, I like the fact that Janelle isn’t afraid to play hard. She proved with her nominations week 1 that she wanted the good players gone. I hope that she has enough influence over James to get him to nominate strong players. Man up James! Man up!

I have a blog so that I can get things off of my chest…so here goes. I’m watching, and I am enjoying the show. There are some people I like, and some people I don’t like. Guess what? I have an opinion just like everyone else. Unlike some people, I don’t insist that my opinion is always correct, because when it comes to opinions, I don’t think that anyone is right or wrong. We all have our own views. If you want to live in a place where everyone must think the same way about all issues, then by all means, pack your stuff and move to a communist nation. Otherwise, don’t bother me with mean comments about how right you are and about how wrong I am. You are, after all, entitled to YOUR own opinion. I post MY opinion here. Post your opinion on your own damn blog, and I promise not to send you mean comments. But, if you send me a comment explaining why you feel differently than I do, and if within the context of that comment, you are not launching a personal attack on me, then I’ll approve your comment. I do have to say though that I can’t figure out why someone would even read a blog belonging to someone they don’t like. That makes absolutely NO sense to me whatsoever. Why waste your time reading about the life of someone you don’t like? So there…that is all I will rave about in the blog today.

The Big Brother All-Stars house is just one big gross rotten Hell hole. I wish that I didn’t have 2 friends in the house, because I hate to see them have to live in that environment. I honestly think it would be easier to fight your way through a pod of bull sharks than to live in that house. I also think your survival rate would be much better. My favorite people in the house right now are Danielle, Alison, Nakomis and Diane. I think Danielle probably should have kept quiet for a few weeks before starting to stir the pot. It just may get her evicted next week…and although I wouldn’t mind that because I would get to talk to her everyday on the phone again, I hate to see her go so early. Alison is being Alison, and I love her for that. She is always true to form, and if she stays next week, I hope she gets really mean and ugly to some of those people. I think that Diane is doing a good job right now. She’s sort of keeping quiet from what I’ve seen, and I think that is going to keep her a little longer. Remember…it is not good to be perceived as a threat. If she can just keep it together and go with the flow, I think that will work for her. Same with Nakomis. She is just being Nakomis, and I like her for that. Some of these people just SCARE me! Will talks about how awful all of the Internet people are, and how we all need to check ourselves into a mental health facility. But I don’t remember him having specialized in psychology. Do you? And James just reminds me of all of the bad press that John Kerry got during the last presidential campaign for being a ‘flip flop”. He is like the boy in high school who really wants to hang with the cool crowd and will do or say anything to just be considered cool. I think that rather than attending the finale party (as I had previously planned to do), I’ll just fly the people I like (and there are FEW) down here to the beach for few days when all of this is over. I swear, this is shaping up to be worse than any horror show I have ever seen! The “Free The West Memphis Three” trial was not as bad as this!

I am so sorry, but apparently my sister got ahold of my Survivor Sucks info and said some really mean bad things about Diane from BB5! Although I have never been a fan – one way or the other – I feel horrible that my sister would use my name to post such BAD CRUEL things! I went back and read them, and I was appauled. She is staying here at my house (along with several others) for our big scallop season opening 4th of July week party. When you log into Survivor Sucks (as I did the other night to defend Danielle’s chldren) it doesn’t log you out when you close the page. So my sister just opened up the page and took it upon herself to pretend to be me. Wow! After I laughed about people pretending to be me, I never thought my own sister could do it! Anyway, I am so sorry to Diane and her fans. And I’m going to drown my sister in the bay this weekend….not really…but I want to right now! Good luck Diane!

I think it is so funny that when I post on message boards or visit chat rooms, people don't believe that it is me! I think that is hilarious! I highly doubt that someone would be a big enough loser to go around on the net pretending to me ME of all people! Why not pretend to be someone like…say…I don't know…Jessica Simpson or Chris Rock? Why would someone pretend to be me? Wow! Anyway, to all of you people at the Survivor Sucks thing: I think that your board is great, and I'm glad that there is a place where you can state your honest opinions without being moderated so much…although I find it odd that you can call people's children bad names on there, yet you can't type the word "myspace". I lost a ton of respect for the site after seeing that. Someone posted that the only way one can get banned from that site is by typing the "n word" – but you can't type "myspace"?! Now THAT is odd – not Danielle's children, as Alfred has posted. Don't call yourself an unedited site if you are going to edit words that aren't even offensive! I'm busy now, so I have to run! I'll post more later!

Yay! The 20 have been announced, and I can finally talk about it. I have to say that I am not as disappointed as I thought I would be. I worried for awhile there that very few of the good players would agree to do it, and we’d be stuck watching a bunch of boring people that all got booted off of their seasons week 1 and 2. I really wish that I could tell my honest opinions about a few of these people, but I will probably be seeing them at the finale party, and I REALLY don’t want to get beat up by some mean person, so I’ll keep my mouth shut for now. Of course I am totally pulling for Danielle! She is like my big sister, and I love her SO much. I really think that she got a raw deal last time, and I want to see her win. I also like Alison a lot. She is such a FUN person to be around, and I think she will be a ton of fun to watch. Okay…and I hope that Cowboy gets back in. No, I am not lying. I met him at the BB5 finale party, and he is one of the sweetest people on earth. He has a HUGE heart, and is a good person. I just can’t be mean to someone like that. I CAN however be mean to people who think that they are smart and gorgeous and look down on everyone when in all reality, they are really just trash with bad hair and/or bad teeth. These people annoy me! There are a few of those on the 20 list. I must also state that while the 20 list does represent some of the better players from the pervious seasons of Big Brother, it does not mean that the 20 are the TOP 20. I think there are a few other former HGs that would have better represented an actual ALL-STAR cast, but these people chose not to do it. I also have to say that while most people hate Julie Chen, I (after all these years of hearing her say “Hello Houseguests “) have grown attached to her as the BB host. So let the games begin! I am SO excited about what we will see this summer. I think it is going to be a BLAST!
