Just for the record, we’re using “lovers’ quarrel” sarcastically in the title … maybe. The thing is, casual “Big Brother” fans seem very interested in this showmance, whereas we unfortunately don’t really see much happening with it other than two people who have a different energy than the rest of the house.
Ultimately, it’s kind of a weird fight, mostly because the “warnings” that Michelle and Nicole laid down upon Natalie to James about her being flirty and whatnot do seem to have made an imprint on the relationship, but not in the way in which you would expect. Basically, Natalie is getting upset about the things that James is telling her, which are things in turn that people told him about Natalie’s actions around other people. She’s tried to point out the hypocrisy in some of it, and for the most part, she does have the point.
The biggest problem here is that James is way in over his head with this stuff. He should’ve just recognized what the other people in the house were doing and leave it be. Unfortunately, the man has about a 1% interest in the game at this point, and he’s probably pushing Natalie away with just how close to her he’s being. She’s claimed that he hurt her feelings, and he’s apologized about it. We’ll see where it goes from here.
Anyway, enough of being a relationship guru. The other real loser in this quarrel is Michelle, who we think in general has done a really bad job the past few days, especially when it comes to handling negative feedback. She broke down earlier after James accused her of being mean to Tiffany … yet, at the same time, she and Zakiyah have spent some time today creating a birthday celebration for a fake giraffe using some of the stuff meant for Bridgette’s birthday. We think she’s a good strategist, but at the same time, her social game is not such that she’s going to get jury votes in the end.
