The Reality of Raven by Mell

Never Miss A Post Update:



Raven has been a big topic with the majority of the house lately. The hg’s are tired of the shrieking, childish behavior, her need to be the center of attention and constantly wanting to one-up everyone. She actually unzipped her pants practically to her vajayjay recently to show them a scar simply because Christmas had her foot exposed for the first time and the hg’s saw her injury. Not only are they out of patience with her, they’ve started to vocalize opinions about her that they haven’t been comfortable sharing before because nobody wants to be the bad guy. (at least in this situation, they’ve actually been fighting over who gets to be the bad guy most of the season)  It was nice to see CBS show a segment of some of Ravens outlandish comments but we wouldn’t want some of the others to be forgotten. I’ve put together a list of information Raven has shared with the houseguests this summer. I’m sure it isn’t a complete list because I don’t transcribe everything she says. Can you believe someone on the production staff actually has to do that job? (I bet they’re spending the end of September in therapy or with a whole lot of liquor!)

She’s made a lot of ridiculous comments and told lies about the other houseguests. There may be a bit of that on the list but I tried to stay away from those things because it’s Big Brother and making up lies about each other is part of the game. I didn’t bother with things like lying about pouring out the coke, hiding the cat ears or slut shaming Jessica. I’m not listing how she said that she and Paul have made the most game moves this summer or her discussion with Matt about no one in the house realizing how hard they’re playing the game. Let’s look at this list more as “announcements” Raven has made. I wrote a story about Raven earlier this season and thought I may take a little heat for it for picking on the sick girl. It didn’t happen because it turns out, fans who can’t agree about Paul, seem to come together and agree about Raven. Here is a list of some of Ravens “announcements.”

  • Raven has two diseases and they are terminal.
  • One of her diseases doesn’t have a name and only one other family in Sweden has it too.

  • Raven and her mother both had their colons removed.
  • Every month when Raven has cramps she has to go to the hospital for 2 days.
  • Raven had an epidural put in backward during a procedure and was awake for the surgery. (If she was awake why didn’t she just say “yo, I’m still awake.”)

Since being in the house, Raven has injured her hand with Josh’s frying pan while being several feet from it, burned her chest, burned her head, hurt her knee multiple times, chipped her tooth, cut her finger multiple times, hurt her finger opening a loaf of bread, hurt her toe multiple times, has a swollen knee after a competition and has announced she has salmonella in her finger. My best guess from observation is that Raven consumes anywhere from 5,000-6000 calories per day but Raven says she can’t eat very much due to her nutritional issues. I’m sure by the time the season ends and even before this post gets published, there will be many more “announcements.”
