Celebrity Big Brother crowned a winner on Wednesday night's two-hour season finale.
At the top of the episode, we had the second to last HOH competition, and Ricky realized it was time for him to start winning things.
He opted to put Kandi and Dina on the block after complaining that both women would not hesitate to take him out of the house.
The dude had never watch Big Brother before because he was all about people doing whatever he told them to.
Tamar was quick to tell Kandi that she needed to win the veto competition or she was likely toast.
Lolo won the veto and during the live telecast decided to leave the nominations the same. With Ricky and Tamar being her only allies, this was the best course of action.
During the live eviction, Lolo decided to evict Kandi, while Tamar went with Dina. This was to force a 1-1 tie. Ricky sent Kandi packing.
That left us with the final four, and the final HOH competition of the season.
- Round 1: Everyone gets a point
- Round 2: Ricky & Tamar get a point
- Round 3: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 4: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 5: Lolo, Ricky, & Tamar get a point
- Round 6: Ricky gets a point
- Round 7: Lolo & Tamar get a point
- Tiebreaker: Final HOH is Ricky!
Winning two back-to-back HOH competition was a big move, but Ricky had to evict two houseguests on the spot.
Ricky decided that Tamar was his best option, sending Dina and Lolo packing ahead of the final vote. Dina took it well, because, well, she won zero competitions in the house.
Lolo on the other hand, well, she was pissed!
“Fifty thousand dollars, after he gets second [place] — after taxes and his agent’s fee, it’s really not much,” Lolo complained to Julie.
If anything, this solidified the fact that Lolo is not a team player. Her attitude throughout the game has rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way.
The funniest part of her being out the house was putting her hand up for Ryan Lochte to hit it. It was like she forgot the way she treated him. She flipped the bird at him, cussed at him, and told numerous lies.
Her behavior was bizarre.
After some tense back and forth, the jury made their decision and the votes played out as follows:
- Jonathan votes: Tamar
- Ryan votes: Tamar
- Joey votes: Tamar
- Kato votes: Tamar
- Natalie votes: Tamar
- Tom votes: Tamar
- Kandi votes: Tamar
- Dina votes: Tamar
- Lolo votes: Tamar
Tamar Braxton won the season by a vote of 9-0. That's what they call a landslide in Big Brother terms.
The only other time a houseguest won by a unanimous vote was when Dan Gheesling manipulated his way to victory on Season 10.
Tom Green went on to win $25,000 to be crowned America's Favorite Houseguest.
What are your thoughts on the finale?
Hit the comments below.
Dina Lohan is totally in love.
She's been in a steady relationship for five years, the trainwreck of a mother said this week on Celebrity Big Brother, and she thinks she's gonna marry her partner someday.
How exciting, right?!?
Here's the thing, though:
Lohan has never met this person.
“I can’t wait to tell you about this guy," Lindsay's often-troubled mother told fellow cast member Kandi Burruss on Thursday, February 7, adding:
"I’ve been talking to him for five years. Like, every day. A lot. I feel like I know him. You know when you talk to someone on the phone, like you feel like you know them?”
Sure. Makes sense. You can definitely bond with someone over the phone.
Dina went on to explain that she lives in New York, but her “special someone resides” in San Francisco.
“It’s personal,” she continued. “He’s real. I swear, it’s crazy. But I’m going to marry him. It’s really, really true. I talk to his ma!"
Burruss, Tamar Braxton and Natalie Eva Marie were skeptical, however.
It didn't help that Dina said she's never even FaceTimed with this unnamed individual.
These co-stars even offered to take a trip to the Bay Area in order for Dina to meet this mystery man.
“It’s real!” she insisted. “Some guys don’t just use iPhones!”
“Lies! It’s 2019. My mom is 71 and she uses [FaceTime],” Braxton told Dina, prior to joking about the situation in the diary room.
“How come Lindsay Lohan’s mom got a Catfish?” she asked the camera. “Everybody FaceTimes, my 5-year-old son FaceTimes.”
Dina is a main cast member on this season of Celebrity Big Brother, despite not exactly being a celebrity of any kind.
She was previously married to Michael Lohan from 1985 to 2007.
In addition to daughter Lindsay, who now anchors her own awful reality show, the exes share sons Michael Jr., 31, Cody, 22, and daughter Aliana, 25.
Despite some seriously tumultuous times in the past with her parents and, specifically her mom, Lindsay said a year ago that the relationship is now solid.
“I think that, you know, in life, parents have their things together and sometimes the children are immersed in it and you just have to really step back and let your parents do what they do and figure out everything for themselves,” Lindsay told Wendy Williams in January 2018, adding at the time:
“And we all have a great relationship now so it’s nice . . . it’s much simpler that way.”
This past September, meanwhile, the momager filed for bankruptcy in the Eastern District of New York under Chapter 13, which is a “voluntary repayment plan for individuals with regular income,” based on documents obtained by The Blast.
No wonder she agreed to be on Big Brother, right?
Lohan reported that she was more than $1,700,000 in debt, with more than $1 million owed to Pennymac Loan Services for the mortgage on her home in N. Merrick, New York.
Celebrity Big Brother airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. It's an extremely dumb show.
In case you missed it, Lindsay Lohan is kind of a hot damn mess right now.
Well, she's always a mess, but right now the situation is more dire than usual.
Last week, Lindsay did this little interview, and while she was talking, she used this bizarre new accent.
It didn't sound like any accent that exists in reality, and she's certainly never used it before.
Disappointingly though it was, her father, Michael Lohan, tried to play it off like it wasn't a big deal -- like a grown ass adult randomly making up an accent and using it in a professional setting is totally normal.
"Lindsay picks up languages like I pick up a coffee!" he joked.
"I will tell you this, she's spoken other languages on the phone with me -- languages I don't understand."
"I'll be on the phone with her and I'll hear her say something in fluent Farsi to a friend she's with."
And just yesterday, Lindsay's mother, Dina Lohan, told Us Weekly all about how Lindsay isn't disturbed or anything tragic like that.
No: she's just special!
"I have raised Lindsay and all my kids to constantly learn different languages and embrace different cultures," she said.
"Since Lindsay was a kid, she was speaking fluent Italian because my mother is Italian and would only speak to her in Italian."
OK, maybe that one's true. That's at least a tiny bit believable.
But then Dina says that "She taught herself how to speak French, Arabic, Greek, Hebrew, and the list goes on."
"Lindsay has a very high IQ and is very intelligent and can pick up on any languages in a minute. She has that gift."
And really, Dina argues, the accent thing is nothing new.
"Remember when Lindsay was just a little kid doing The Parent Trap and she was able to rock that British accent because she was so fascinated with the British culture -- and still is -- and embraced it fully?" she asked.
"With that being said, she has always been this way. Nothing has ever changed."
Really? Not a thing? There are several rehab centers and police departments in California that might disagree.
It's just Lindsay's new accent is so very, very upsetting. It's not a great sign for her mental health, especially considering everything else she's been through recently.
That engagement to the allegedly abusive Egor Tarabosov, for instance?
But Dina insists that Lindsay's is fine, completely fine. Marvelous, really.
"She is overseas now focusing on giving back to kids who have been refugees, who have no place to go, who have no food, who have no clothes to wear or anyone to turn to, and she helps them get everything they need," she explains.
"She sits down and communicates with each kid no matter what background they have come from or what language they speak because that's her way of communicating to them."
"She is a worldly person who has so many talents and so much to offer and that's what makes her so special and beautiful."
If all that's true, then that's great, it really is.
But the accent is still weird and sad as hell.
Back in February, Lindsay Lohan tried to sue Fox News after a commentator stated on the air that Lindsay does coke with her mom.
The case finally went before a judge today, and TMZ is reporting that was immediately thrown out of court.
The reason? Lindsay totally did coke with her mom - probably on several occasions.
The judge - who must frequent celebrity gossip sites - dismissed the case on the simple grounds that "the truth is a defense."
In other words, "Everyone knows Lindsay Lohan is a cokehead, and Dina is certainly no better."
The judge didn't cite any examples, but if he wanted to, he could've reminded Lindsay of the time she called her dad and specifically told him that Dina is on coke.
We don't blame the man for not getting into specifics.
Instances that prove Lindsay Lohan is on drugs and Dina Lohan is the worst kind of enabler are so plentiful that no one would make it home this weekend if the judge started listing them all.
As of right now, Lindsay's cases against Fox News and Sean Hannity have been officially thrown out.
There's no word on the outcome of the Lindsay's suit against the guest on Hannity's show who made the comment, but we're guessing that one's dun-zo, as well.
If not, the defendant should just take a camera to the Chateau Marmont this weekend, where he will 100% see Lindsay consoling herself by burying her face in a pile of blow that would make Tony Montana weep.
