Big Brother All-Stars has been over for a few weeks now, which means the houseguests that participated are slowly but surely getting up to speed on all the stuff that happened outside the house while they were in. It's also a time for them to watch their own performances, and read up on some of the criticisms of them and their actions in the house. Well, it appears that Dani Briones has looked into her gameplay, and now she has reached out to apologize.
In a fairly lengthy statement posted on Twitter, Dani Briones addressed many of the unsavory things she said or did during Big Brother All-Stars. Dani took some time to acknowledge her mistakes and talked about some of the things from her own perspective.
Much like many others who have left the Big Brother house, Dani Briones has taken a look at her actions and felt it necessary to offer a public apology to fans and viewers. Dani certainly came under scrutiny for her gameplay and level of deception in the house, but as Dani pointed out, is a necessary part of playing Big Brother. Playing an honest game is rarely rewarded on the CBS series, so it's in a player's best interest to act the opposite of how one would assume they'd act outside of the house.
An unfortunate side effect of that behavior occasionally means making a target out of others, which was an activity she and others participated in quite heavily. Specifically, Dani Briones and others caught a lot of flak when they were captured on live feeds mocking houseguest and former winner Ian Terry, and some of his habits stemming from his autism. Dani spoke specifically about that situation and shared information about things the audience didn't see afterward.
Ian Terry responded to Dani Briones' apology with a smiley face emoji, which I would assume means he's confirming that the two did in fact speak about the incident. It's an update Big Brother fans can take some solace in, especially considering how that controversy became one of the darkest blots on what was supposed to be a celebration of the best of Big Brother.
Dani Briones apologized for the things she was aware of, but also the things she may not be aware of. Microaggressions by houseguests were also a controversy during the season, and Dani explained that like others in the house and around the world, she's learning each and every day about what is and isn't great to say.
Although it's certainly a long statement, it felt honest and sincere to me. Dani Briones may have been a scheming villain during Big Brother All-Stars, but outside of the game, she seems truly remorseful for any hurt she may have caused and is taking the steps to make amends in any way she can. While it may not be better than if she had caused no controversy at all, it might just be the next best thing.
Big Brother All-Stars is finished, but fans can re-watch the season and all past seasons on CBS All Access. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend in the meantime for more on the franchise, and for the latest news happening in television and movies.
