Celebrity Big Brother’s “Pretty Boy”
Celebrity Big Brother is not James Maslow’s first reality TV appearance. Some may remember him as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars season 18.
Maslow’s journey in the house didn’t get off to a great start, as he clashed with Brandi Glanville. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star didn’t seem to like him very much and told the other contestants, “I don’t like pretty boy.” She even admitted that “he annoys me already.”
The Nickelodeon star didn’t like the way Glanville constantly interrupted him and said, “We just met. I don’t know what I would have done to upset you, but it’s pretty abrasive. I got to be honest.”
Maslow went on to say that if he won Head of Household, Glanville would get the boot!
Brandi Glanville and James Maslow are both still in the competition and as the end draws near, Maslow seems to like where he stands. Glanville’s on the block this week, so we might be saying bye to the Desperate Housewife!
