Big Brother 10: April doesn't seem to need the money...GREEDY MUCH?

I was reading the live feed updates from last night and April was talking about how she bought a whole bunch of new clothes, to the tune of $900 worth, to bring into the BB house and BB took them away from her. She said most of them still had tags on them. She guesses that BB just didn't want to be advertising...whatever that means. But, then she said that she tends to spend $2,500.00 a month on clothes. WTF? Anyone who can afford to spend that much freaking money on clothes every month does not need the money that they would be getting from BB should they win. Oh...and that ticks me off that she wants Memphis out so bad because he won a car that totals roughly $50,000 which amounts to the 2nd place prize on BB. Ummmm...beeyatch...you don't even need the 2nd place prize with the ability to spend $2,500 a month on clothes so, what should it matter if one of your fellow HGs won a car worth the same amount of money? Ugh! I can't stand that self-righteous twit! What do you all think? If you liked April before, does the fact that she really doesn't seem to need the money, change your mind about her at all?

I can't stand April to begin with! Maybe the fact that she spends $2500 a month on clothes is why she needs to win BB...to pay off her credit card! I think that she is all about Memphis getting out because it takes attention off of her alliance with Ollie. I would love to see her up next week and walking out the door. It does surprise me that bb took her clothes away...what would the purpose of that be?

I don't know...Reesers pointed out (above) that the HGs were talking about who was taking care of their bills while they are in the house and April told someone that she left her sister in charge of her bills and left her with $11,000 with which to pay them. I don't have $11,000 to leave anyone to pay for crap. I think she is pretty loaded. So, while it may be credit card bills, with $11,000 to just leave with someone, I can't imagine that she is hurting. I am not too surprised that BB took her clothes away. I have read that BB gives them guidelines to follow as far as what clothes they should wear because certain colors and patterns clash and are harsh on camera. And, logos are protected so they would have to block something out if they aired it on CBS so, she probably had a bunch of things that they wouldn't have been able to air her in and decided it was best to take them from her.

HOly Crap!! Could you imagine just hanging your sister $11,000 for the bills! I only wish I had that laying around. I don't even think April is pretty. She has a weird hairline giving her a huge forehead. She probably thinks she will be discovered on BB~ LOL!

LOL! No...I can't imagine just handing my sister $11,000 for bills because I don't have that kind of money. LOL! So, there is nothing even for me to imagine it with! LOL! I don't think April is really all that pretty either. And, she seriously needs to back off the bleach or peroxide. LOL! The funny thing is, you would think the people who go on BB to get discovered would take a better look at the track record of BB HG discovery. It ain't good. Really, the only people who have gotten any kind of notoriety for being on BB are Dr. Will and Mike Boogie. Mike Boogie mostly because he is like a parasite on Dr. Will. And, Dr. Will because he really is quiet a charismatic person. He has been on Dr. 90210 on Bravo or A&E...whichever channel that is on. And, he has been on a few Reality TV star specials. But, that is about it. No movies or comedies or anything like that that I know of. None of them really have that I am aware of. Unless they won some kind of role as a prize from BB but, I can't remember so, it really did no good at all! LOL! But, each season, most of the HGs think that BB is just the kick they need to jump start their modeling, acting, singing, talent related careers. NOPE! Think again! No one gets anywhere because they were on BB. LOL!

I agree with you. She is greedy. If you have that type of money to just blow on clothes you don't deserve to be on the show. Why don't the producers put people on there who really need the money. I hate when people be greedy, knowing that there are people out there who needs it more than you. I wish I could spend that amount of money just on clothes.

I agree! I think that I liked James last season, partially because he really did need the money. Someone like April has this, everyone owes me everything, kind of attitude. I hate that. I think her parents have never told her no and they probably spent every second that they talked to her telling her that she is the most important person on the earth and no one should, nor can they, ever deny her anything. Ugh! She is probably also one of those people who gets everything handed to her because all she has to do is bat her eyelashes and toss her hair. I personally don't think she is that pretty but, she has managed to turn Ollie into mush and, I am certain she has been as effective with others. Ick! She makes me nauseous! LOL! And, no...it isn't jealousy! LOL! I don't want Ollie. I also don't want her personality, her bleached out ugly wiggy looking hair, or her piss poor attitude towards the world and what she expects from it. LOL!

All she is is a spoil brat. I don't think she is pretty either. But her personality diffently makes her look ugly. I don't see what Ollie sees in her. I know your not jealous of her, shes not worth being jealous of.

OH! I forgot something I was going to say in my original response. Really wish there was an edit button! Didn't April just win money with this last POV comp? I'd have to check again but I think she won $10,000. Okay, just read it again and she did win the money but it says she gave $4000 to Jerry and $1000 Libra. Still, she has $5000 that she didn't have before and is an idiot to want Memphis out for winning the car.

Yea! I read that too and reported it a couple of times in various responses to other's responses in my discussions. I hate this girl! She has no right to say who deserves to win this game and who doesn't based on what someone already has. She obviously doesn't need any more than she already has. A car isn't cash. You can't pay the bills with a car. Granted, he could sell it and take the cash but, she doesn't know that that is what he will do. She needs to STFU and get the boot! I'm tired of her attitude and the whole way she seems to think that she deserves to win over anyone else. Get over yourself! BTW...If I understood it correctly, she gave Jerry the $4,000 to do what she wanted him to do with the POV. So, she bought his will as far as whether he would or wouldn't use the POV and I don't think that is fair.

That is just outrageous. I think it's kinda funny that they took them away from her. At least she'll have clothes outside the house! LOL But you're right. She's been bagging on Memphis for winning the car and it doesn't sound like she's hurting for money. A couple of weeks ago a lot of them were talking about people outside taking care of things, like bills, while they were gone. I could be wrong but I think April said she left her sister $11,000. I was like what kind of bills does she have?! Now I see it may be the shopping bill!

Holy crap! $11,000! WTFedge? I don't even have $11,000, much less that kind of money to leave someone to pay bills. Yup...she most definitely does not need to win on BB. Off! Off! Off with her from the show! I now have moved her to the top of the list of people I want to see walk out the door next. She moved Libra from the number 1 spot to the number 2 spot.

I don't have that kind of money either so I'm like WTF is she spending it on?! Well, we know some of it has gone to clothes. LOL I read somewhere that she told them she pays at least $3000 in bills each month. Again...WTF?! Apparently they feel the same way because they don't believe her. And why would you say that? People have kept money a quiet issue before because they didn't want people knowing they had money. Obviously April has money and doesn't need as bad as the others. And going back to the car thing. When that competition took place, Memphis said he needed a car, just like Steven. Sure, if he wins he would have money to buy a new one. But if they hadn't had the competition and Memphis did lose the game, he would still be without a car. April will still have money. She's just greedy and grasping at straws. She doesn't have a better reason to get rid of him. If she's HOH again, she might as well go after Libra for winning that trip.

Hey star reporter! As you said, I didn't like her before. I like her less now, which means I can't stand her at all! Get her out now even sooner. I vote to nominate April to go home next week! There that was easy! Maybe one of the HG's will hear me and do it! Stupid beotch! I didn't like her from the beginining! I hope I get home in time to watch tonight's episode. I will have to try to make the bus connections or I'll miss the first 10 minutes. I hate when it's on at 8:00. I don't always make it home in time. I go to my night rehab aftercare and I have to take 2 busses to get home. I am almost ready to graduate! I wish I would finish already! Well I'm looing forward to your next report!

Hello Opal! It is hard to like April and she keeps making it even harder! LOL! Not that I ever did like her. Nope...pretty much disliked her from the start too! It would be truly lovely to watch her squirm in the hot seat and go home! BTW...is she trying to have nearly white hair? Hello! Stop bleaching! LOL! I know...low blow. I should not resort to insults of a personal nature about the HGs looks. I should hate her game, not her hair! LOL! I hope you get home in time to watch it too. If not, you can watch it online on CBS' website...I think!

I feel the same way. While I have issues with Memphis and can't seem to decide whether I like him or not, I do know I like him better than April. You have a great evening too!

I have never really never cared for April since she came into the house. She was just one of those peoples that I couldn't stand at all. Being the in the house or real life. If she can spend that much on clothing a month. HMMMM She don't need to be on the show because of the money. Maybe she might be doing it for another reason who knows. But personally I couldn't care if she needed the money or not. I don't like how she presents herself on the show. However Memphis granted won a car. But he needed a new car. I think he was the one that said that he needed a new car and the other person that needed one was Steven. So in Memphis' defence it was good for him to win it if he really needed it. But as other seasons have gone they all win something wheather it be money, cars etc etc.

NIcholejade, I didn't really like April from the start either and, yes...it had something to do with how she presents herself. Something about her just rubs me the wrong way and she hasn't changed my opinion of her since. As for Memphis and Steven, I would rather have seen Steven get the car but, basically, anyone getting that car but Libra, Keesha and April would have been ok with me! LOL! Plunk...I don't know that I am charmed by Memphis. I just don't despise him yet. I certainly see something shady about him but, he is a lesser of evils in my eyes right now. Libra is the most evil person in this game right now. Then, I want to see April and Keesha leave and, I don't care in which order they leave. LOL! But, don't think for one second that Memphis has managed to fool me. I just don't entirely hate him...yet! LOL!

Oh Gosh, I cannot stand April!!!! I know she usese the excuse that won the car but come on, if she won it she wouldnt think that way. She would still think she deserved the money. as would nayone else. It is a game. I see her point in a way that yes he has already won something but that is the name of the game. It happens every season people always win prizes. Like the motorcycle from last season, but they dont use it against that person. Agh and I'd love to be able to spend $2500 on clothes in a YEAR!!!

I know! This whole thing about the other HGs holding it against one HG for things won bugs me and always has. Just because they are jealous that they didn't win it, doesn't mean that the person who did win it should automatically not be eligible to win the 1st or 2nd prize. But, these people are usually quite greedy and can't see past the Dollar signs in their own eyes, which consequently colors their vision green, to be happy for someone else when they win something.

That is a bit wrong lol. I mean really we all know most of them do this to be on tv not for the money so much but to use the car against him was wrong even before i knew she spent money like that. Id like to see what if any money she donates to people in need. Im lucky if i can afford a $20.00 dress yet alone spend the money like she does makes me sick. Now I really hope she doesnt win anything.

It is infuriating...a little...huh? Seriously! Who does she think she is to want Memphis gone for winning a car while she has $2,500 a month to throw at her wardrobe? WTF? Ugh! I could not imagine her giving any money to charity either given her extremely expensive lifestyle. I hate to say this but, I think I want her out more than I want Libra out at this point. She is possibly the least deserving person to win BB...ever!

I look at April and the thing that comes to my mind is "eat a burger you twig!" She annoys me the most I think. I would really like to see her go. I can't stand Jessie either because he is just a muscle bound moron. I don't think between the two of them that they have an IQ above that of a common house plant. I am a little disappointed in the house guests this year. I think Renny and Keesha are my favorites for now.

Oh whywiki...you know I love you but...Keesha? Ugh! She makes my ears feel like they are about to bleed every time she speaks. And, she got rid of Angie, whom I liked. Ugh! LOL! I am sort of with you on Renny though. I hated her in the beginning but am ok with her now. Not great with her, but ok with her! LOL! If Michelle, Memphis and Dan leave, I will have no choice but to root for Renny. LOL! And, April could stand to even just eat a crumb from the bun on a burger! LOL! She is too twiggy.
