Q&A: 'Big Brother' evictee Libra: Jerry is a dirty old man!

Libra_lHaving been unanimously evicted last night, Libra Thompson is the first tenant of the Big Brother jury house! Since her job now is to figure who should win the $500,000, we can’t ask her about things she hasn’t seen or heard while playing the game — like who Renny, the new head of household, will put up for nomination on Sunday, or whether April is better looking than Keesha (seriously, like there’s even a question). But we can ask her about going to Hawaii, her thoughts about Jerry, and whether April was right to think she sucks at veto competitions.

POPWATCH: First, a question that I believe is on the mind of every woman who watches this show: Why does it seem like you and the other gals have endless supplies of clothing, and yet we only see you walk out with a relatively small gym bag?

LIBRA THOMPSON: I brought an enormous suitcase, over 100 pounds in weight. It was worth it for sure. You definitely need to have outfits to look as fresh as you can if you’re going to be in the house for three months. We also did a lot of mixing and matching.


Almost immediately, Julie hit you with the question about leaving your small children to play the game. How much was this an issue in the house? Did your fellow players talk about it?


My fellow players respected my decision. No one threw that in my face. They wouldn’t have the nerve. Most understood that at the end of the day, I could win $500,000 for my kids.

Let’s go back to that fateful veto competition when you took the Hawaiian trip away from Michelle. Did you give the letters a thought?

This is the most ridiculous thing to me, people asking me why I didn’tget the letter from home. You play the game with the idea that you’regoing to eventually win HOH, and one of the perks of being HOH isgetting a letter from home. In that moment I was thinking not only canI [eventually] win HOH, I can also get a trip to Hawaii!

Michelle was so angry.

She did not handle it well at all. She threw a tantrum and criedhalfway through the night. I can honestly say that if the shoe was onthe other foot, she would have taken the trip.

At the feast, you made a sarcastic comment about Keesha wanting to wearsome of April’s new clothes. It got back to Keesha, who immediatelygave you crap.


Honestly, what I really meant to say was that she was kissing April’sass. If you’ve seen the show, you’ve seen Keesha in one room, sharingher true feelings about April, but when we’re all together, she’s like,’I never had any problem with you!’ Blah blah, I’m calling bulls— onthat! I was over it at the feast. I started thinking, "April is yourfriend today, Keesha, but tomorrow, she’ll be a b—-, just like you’realways calling her."

You and April ultimately seemed like a bad combo. Why did you align with her?

It’s one of those things that you tend to think that, for the moment,it’s going to work but it’s not going to be for the duration.

April didn’t think you could be counted on to win veto comps.

That made me mad, and then I won, so…kiss my a–!

Jessie told everyone that a banner flown over the house said something about how you couldn’t be trusted. Did you believe him?

Ijust want to say, I was little bit proud to have a banner. Who hasbanners? At least people know my name. My thought was "Oh, s—, thiswill mess me up from a strategic standpoint." Now banners are going upwith my name attached! I think everyone took it with a grain of salt,though it gave them something to wonder about. I honestly don’t knowwhat the banner said, though April had her suspicions. She said what ifit said Keesha was a liar? (Editor’s note: A CBS insider said the banner had nothing to do with the game.)


What are your thoughts about Jerry?

Jerryis a dirty old man. There are things he did in that house that you guysneed to see on YouTube. He’s not gingerly [sic] or grandfather-y. Heloves the women, and he loves to keep himself in the mix as much as Ido, but Jerry stands behind the honor of being a Marine, the wholetruth and loyal thing, while at same time throwing as much dirt andlies around as everybody else.


Did you think he was going to exercise the veto this week?


Ithought, honestly Jerry, you are killing me. Calling Dan a Judas?  Ithought it was a bit much. And if he was going to use it, I thought hewas going to save Keesha.


Who do you think is going make it to the final two?


Honestly,this game is a toss-up. Typically in other seasons the stronger playersthrow out weaker ones in the beginning, but it has flip-flopped thistime. I have no idea.


Who is your favorite BB player of all time?

Everyoneloves Janelle, while I like Will. He’s the puppet master, whileapparently I am the puppet mistress. I’m going to take that with honor!

    This was infinitely more coherent than Jessie’s interview. I still think Libra’s comment at the feast about Keesha was sarcastic at the time. I think Libra is now claiming that it was her calling Keesha out because Libra has nothing to lose. If they thought she was being a b****, then she might as well take credit for it. It’s not like it matters now.

    Good interview. I don’t like Jerry and now I know for sure that he’s not right. He’s a very judgmental person and he has no right to be. What a hypocrite.
    Who could understand Jessie. That dude’s not too bright. I saw Jessie on the morning show and all I can say is wow..that guy is weird.

    I wish Libra had made F2. She was one of the few people who played the game. And with a batch this dumb, they were afraid that she could actually plan things out. If she had just won a few comps, she could have gone far. Go…Dan??

  • Snarf

    Sort of throws me that people always act so devestated and betrayed, when their can only be one winner and their all there for the same thing. However rational thought and actions don’t garner ratings do they?

  • Anonymous

    Keesha’s prettier.

  • Corran

    Libra hit the nail on the head. The stronger players have been voted out by the weak players this season. Angie, Brian, and Libra were all “players” of the Big Brother game.

  • zpydah

    Libra is do delusional.. our interview at RealityBitesBack.com asks her the hard questions as well, and she obviously has a different take on reality tv, and reality in general, than the rest of us do!!

  • brandy

    libra is totaly crazy for one who leaves their newborn babies to go away for three months and two act like a crazy person in front of god and america

  • Sina

    Well apparently Libra, Brian and Angie werent’ the real “players” in the game if they were some of the one voted out. The so-called “floaters” this season are really playing the game. And by Libra’s house it really looked like she needed 50,000. She just wanted to be on a reality tv show and used that excuse about needing that money to justify her leaving her kids.

  • beachpup

    I respect Libra now more than ever. She should have stayed.

  • ianl

    I think she tried to play the game well, but she tried to get away with soo many things in the open. And the whole “I am the puppet mistress”, I think that distinction should go to Danielle from BB3. A much better player and manipulator.

  • Jennifer

    Libra knew what she was doing, and she deserved everything she got! Enjoy the trip without your kids. You are Mother of the Year, and I do mean MOTHER………Keesha is better then April inside and out

  • Muziguru

    Just as I thought…a real “classless act” has left the building…er..house

  • Ashely

    LIBRA is the greatest!!!!! They are still talking about her even as she is chilling in the jury house. No matter how viewers personally feel about her, they cannot deny that she made the ratings for the show this season, the show is NOTHING without her. I have not watched BBAD since Wednesday morning and I do not miss it!!! Other houseguests and viewers are just made that Libra did not come in the house desparate to win the money, but rather to enjoy the experience. She has a life to go home to after the show, I cannot say the same for the others who do not win the show. Remember six additional houseguests my accompany Libra in the jury house. You all are glad that she is out of the house…NOW WHAT!! The HGs cannot blame her for their actions anymore!! The show is BORING!!!! The best revenge is to live well and after this show that is exactly what Libra is going to do…”AMERICA”!

  • tracy

    Alot of people think that leaving your home for three months is like being a bad parent. But I personaly believe Libra went there intending on winning that money to help her family.To me its no different then a women going to work everyday. There is women out there that have babies,kids and stillgo out of town for business trips for who knows how long. Whats the difference there? And Libra you did what you had to,thats all that matters!
