Big Brother UK Style

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Now I had heard of this controversy just a few days ago, about her being racist. I had no idea that Jermain Jackson was on the show. Can we say jump the shark? These are obviously B grade or even C grade stars on a last ditch attempt to something to day in the limelight.

Shilpa Shetty, the Indian actress whose bullying by some contestants on the "Celebrity Big Brother'' U.K. television show became an international incident, has been voted the overwhelming winner after a public vote.

The 31-year-old star of 36 so-called Bollywood films gained 63 percent of the vote and was declared the 26-day show's winner during a live television broadcast today.

In second place was former Jackson Five singer Jermaine Jackson, followed by U.S. actor Dirk Benedict, who starred in the TV shows "The A-Team'' and "Battlestar Galactica.''

The show, which involves famous people being filmed 24 hours a day while living together in a house in Elstree, north of London, is named after the all-seeing totalitarian ruler in George Orwell's novel "1984.''

Contestants, who take part in a series of challenges to win food and privileges, nominate each other for eviction from the house and are voted off one at a time in a public phone ballot.
