Us Weekly: Third place! How are you feeling?
Cynthia Bailey: You already know what I really feel unbelievable that I made remaining three. I had no concept – truthfully, after I began this journey – that I might make it that far. I used to be actually discouraged after my experience or die Carson left. I used to be alone in the home. I wasn’t actually positive I used to be going to have the ability to navigate, however I felt like I performed the sport the way in which I mentioned I used to be gonna play it. You already know, I attempted to remain loyal to my alliance and I used to be a lady of my phrase, which doesn’t actually get you that far within the Huge Brother home I came upon. But it surely was the one manner that I might’ve needed to win.
Us: You didn’t win competitions, however you have been well-liked, which is essential too.
CB: I didn’t win any competitions and I might like to let you know that that was my technique to not win something, nevertheless it’s not true. I really needed to win competitions. I used to be by no means in any place of energy, however I didn’t find yourself getting any blood on my fingers as a result of I might by no means put anybody up as a result of I by no means received something.
Us: You have been the one vote for Todrick tonight. How do you’re feeling about that and what have you ever discovered after the very fact? Have been you shocked by the opposite jurors?
CB: I’ve been out of Huge Brother home for possibly an hour now. So I haven’t seen the present. One of many issues about being the third individual in the home left, everybody else has seen the present. I haven’t seen something. So my solely actuality is what has occurred in the home. Todrick was pretty to me in the home. He really took me underneath his wing after Carson left, which was troublesome for me as a result of Carson was my experience or die. And I used to be in there on my own. It was Miesha and Todrick and Lamar [Odom] and Todd [Bridges]. I used to be form of alone. But it surely was very clear as soon as I got here out and I noticed my stone-faced solid, [they] didn’t look comfortable, and I used to be the final to vote. I used to be very shocked everybody voted for Miesha when half of the folks have been put out of the home as a result of Miesha. I used to be like, “What’s going on? What is going on?” I believed it might least be 50/50 as a result of they have been the dynamic duo that did every part collectively. So I used to be like, “Wow, why are they so strongly towards Todrick? And never a bit of salty with Miesha too?” As a result of they labored collectively very carefully as you noticed.
Us: You’re undoubtedly gonna be taught some issues. The most important factor that followers have been annoyed about with you was while you and Carson let Todrick persuade you to activate Shanna. She simply used the Veto on Carson! How might you consider him over Shanna?
CB: For me – and I received’t communicate for Carson – at the moment, I used to be beginning to be a bit of leery of Shanna as a result of she flipped her vote on Teddi [Mellencamp]. And as an alliance, we had all determined the place we have been gonna vote for Teddi. And in the home, all you’ve gotten is your alliance so every part is sort of a large deal in the home. So when she did that and she or he didn’t inform us she was doing that, I used to be like, wait, “What’s taking place? Why wouldn’t you inform your alliance? We discuss every part earlier than we make any strikes.” In order that’s after I began to get a bit of paranoid together with her, like, this doesn’t really feel proper. I used to be additionally informed that she knew when Carson and I went up on the block, that she knew about it.
I used to be like, “Why wouldn’t you inform us in case you knew that data?” I used to be informed she knew it. She mentioned she didn’t know. However at that time, I used to be beginning to be little leery as a result of I felt like she was taking part in each side of the staff. And as soon as Todrick had the dialog with me and Miesha mainly cosigned every part, I used to be like …. And disclaimer, I’m not a Huge Brother superfan. I didn’t go into this figuring out the right way to actually play the sport. I watched seasons 1 and a couple of of the celeb editions and that’s it. I believed that was sufficient, however I used to be improper as a result of I had no concept that two grown folks would look me in my face and simply make up a lie.
I used to be so upset and I used to be so protecting of Carson as a result of Carson was so good to Shanna. We have been just like the three little bears in our room. We have been all we had and I simply reacted with the knowledge that I used to be being given. And now that I’m listening to in a different way, clearly I really feel horrible and I undoubtedly owe Shanna an apology personally and publicly, at this level. However once more, I haven’t even watched the present, so I don’t even understand how dangerous it’s. I don’t know the way it even performed out.
Us: I feel she is aware of that you just didn’t know what was happening within the sport. However, there have been issues that have been mentioned about her look. Do you assume these feedback took it too far?
CB: One of many issues I do know that was mentioned, and I don’t know who you heard it from, however the guys have been saying that they felt like she was dressing form of inappropriately or no matter. I didn’t actually have an issue personally with the way in which she dressed. I imply, she’s a horny woman. She’s a ravishing woman. I really feel like, for me as a married lady, if I gown as horny, I imply, it wouldn’t be a private alternative for me to decorate tremendous horny in the home with males in the home, particularly with us not having plenty of privateness and stuff in there. However I didn’t have an issue with the way in which she dressed. Only for me, I transfer a bit of in a different way simply because I’m married.
Us: Do you assume you’ll have a dialog together with her?
CB: I want to. I imply, if every part that I’m saying is true and apparently it’s true as a result of that is like my third interview now, I one hundred pc plan to have a dialog together with her as a result of I owe her an apology for positive. I used to be improper to consider them, I assume. I by no means imagined in 1,000,000 years that they have been mendacity to us.
Us: Understanding that you just have been most likely not going to win the ultimate HOH, did you concentrate on probably pitting them towards one another and making some form of deal?
CB: Todrick and Miesha have been a duo. I knew if both of them received, they have been gonna take one another. I used to be the third wheel in that scenario so if by some miracle I received – which I didn’t win something the entire time I used to be in the home competition-wise – I might have taken Todrick as a result of that’s who I had a relationship inside the home. I wasn’t tremendous near Miesha. I appreciated Miesha. I respect her, however we have been by no means actually shut. And as soon as Carson left the home, Todrick form of took me in underneath his wing for the plain causes now. However to me, it felt like, “OK, nice. I don’t have my experience or die. I don’t have any assist in the home anymore.” So I felt very fortunate for him to even scoop me up. However now I do know higher.
Us: How does it really feel figuring out you most likely would have overwhelmed him within the remaining two?
CB: I didn’t even know. Once more, while you’re in the home, I had misplaced so many occasions, I didn’t even know if the followers would even be rooting for me at this level. I believed they most likely [had] simply given up on me profitable competitions. So yeah, apparently I might’ve received had I introduced him with me. I’m nonetheless processing. I really feel prefer to be trustworthy with you, I did win. Simply even making it to the ultimate three is a victory for me. I by no means noticed myself going this far in the home as a result of I’m not a Huge Brother superfan. I don’t know the present that nicely. I actually tried to remain loyal to my alliance and I actually tried to remain loyal to my phrase. And plenty of these issues don’t actually carry that a lot weight within the Huge Brother home apparently, however that was the one manner that I needed to win the sport, if I received.
Us: You probably did come out with an excellent buddy in Carson.
CB: I did, I did. I like Carson.
Us: What’s one factor that you just want you possibly ready for or knew earlier than you went into the home?
CB: Oh, my goodness. I want I had watched extra Huge Brother episodes simply to know the gameplay as a result of even … I used to be making large errors even after I was in an alliance. I didn’t know that was alleged to be a secret. Anytime somebody tried to tug me, I used to be like, “No, I’m in an alliance. I’m with Shanna, Carson, and I feel Todrick’s with us.” And so they’re like, “Wait, we’re in an alliance with Todrick. What do you imply?” I used to be simply doing all of it improper. If there was a e-book of Huge Brother don’ts, I might write it as a result of I feel I performed the sport fully improper.
Us: You got here in third place so you probably did one thing proper.
CB: Properly, it’s a testomony to … my major technique going into the home was to simply make the home a house. Prepare dinner and clear as a lot as doable. So I will need to have [done] an excellent job with that. Folks will need to have appreciated me as a result of I didn’t win something in the home and I went fairly far. So I assume I can, , be pleased with that.
Us: And also you’re the one one who cleaned these bathrooms!
CB: I’m the one one! Did you guys see that? These bathrooms have been … you don’t even know. Celebrities have no idea the right way to clear up after themselves. I can let you know that proper now.
