Default Has shown herself to be weak with a very thin skin

What happened to the tough high powered business woman?

Instead we get a weak big mouth crying because someone (Joe) told her what he thought about her.

Yeah big deal. How will she cope in face to face nominations?

Probably cry again and want out.

She should have shrugged Joe's words off. And you'd expect that from someone like her who is in business.

Ever heard of the saying 'sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me'.

Obviously Rebecca doesn't go by that.

What a sad performance from her last night.

She's appalling. She should be ashamed of herself. I bet her business contacts and family were cringing.

I personally found all that swearing very immature.

She was pathetic.

What she should have done was walk off. Which she did. But then she came back, which was a big mistake.

Very poor judgement from her. Her blood pressure would have been about 220!

And all that swearing and then crying and then getting onto to Keiran.

She was an embarrassment. Even Charlotte said, 'when she looks back at the tape she'll she how bad she behaved.'

its simple really, she is either not a successful business woman at all or she is putting on an act. I go with the latter

What are you on about? She cried because she felt betrayed by her friend. Not because of shrivelled up geezer Joe. And you can be strong and then cry, btw. (Especially when noone's looking). It's called catharsis. Gets rid of overflowing emotions.

I think she was just a bit pissed tbh. I would be annoyed if someone said that they were irritated because I smile?! Was a bit ridiculous, then the blowup over her 'bringing his daughter into it' when she didn't at all. Topped off by her mate being a dick and taking sides, then refusing to admit he took sides

that wasn't harsh from her, but it is just the truth what she said

Charlotte is just a girl who would really not do such things, i think she's more like the girl who has self-respect

i think she likes Rebecca, as her friend there in the house, but even against friends you must stay honest

Kieran works with her as well as being her supposed friend, he had really let her down, Joe was just seeking drama i think, he had nothing to do with anything and still he confronted her

Actually, she couldn't have done it at a better time.
She is far from weak, it was the right moment to show she can stand up for herself and won't take sh!t from anybody.

especially Joe who had no business to confront her anyway



Charlotte actually said it more like trying to warn Rebecca, if she looks back at her BB experience, not to be frightened of how she was doing that with Kieran

not to be rude or anything, i would've also said the same as Charlotte i think

I like Charlotte, but she also needs to be quiet until she is involved in something interesting...which she hasn't yet.

Rebecca is smart and from what I read here and there, the public likes her even more.

Weak??? Nahh mate she was brilliant.

Many people would have melted when Joe came over aggressively at her like that.

But Rebecca stuck to her guns, stuck to her point (Yes Joe how WOULD you feel if someone insulted your daughter like that?) and I LOVED the way Rebecca told him to back off, back off, back off until he did

I kinda liked her before but my respect has way gone up for now

.

Also her asking Joe "How would you feel if it was your daughter being insulted like that?" - it's EXACTLY the kind of question Emma Willis would ask in an eviction interview - Do you honestly think Joe would have 'squared up' to Emma like that???

Rebecca was right all the way

.

not yet, okay perhaps she wants to say at least something, she's opening up a bit more, now we see a bit more from her

oh well some also dislike Rebecca, it really goes 50/50 for her, a shame cause she's a lovely and smart lady, i can see why Charlotte likes her and wants to be her friend, also just trying to be honest with her

Both were idiots in the argument, but me and Rebecca got offended at Joe for very different things to each other, she was more offended at the smile over the fact that he got up in her face, or the fact that he attacked her personality.

She also was very willing to forgive Kieran which I wouldn't have done if I was Rebecca.

I'm not excusing Joe's behaviour, but Rebecca's playing the victim over the wrong things in that argument imo.

This is exactly my stance, Rebecca blew a comment that's not nice, and then made it worse than it actually was.

The way she was going on you'd have thought that Joe had called her a c u next tuesday, or an ugly bitch, or a fat cow etc.

And I do love how her trying the same trick on Joe that she did to Deborah and Hannah is now making her a legendary Housemate, it really does show that if the public don't like a Housemate you can get away with alot.

Exactly. In no way do I like joe but I don't get what was so truly awful about his comment that she had to make world war 3. Imagine whats gonna happen when she gets back and see all the negative comments on her twitter.

I think the problem with her is that she isn't strong enough because she has had no reason to be strong. she hasn't had any reason to fight before so she lost it. She is probably used to everyone liking her when someone says something somewhat negative she goes all out. She needs thicker skin to be able to live.


I think a lot of people are quite deluded because we all know if raph or chanelle said what joe said they would all be defending them.

BIB if Joe had said it to one of them two there wouldn't be as much sympathy as Raph's a guy so he has to "man up" and Chanelle is seen as a trashy slag who doesn't have any feelings by alot of the public so again Joe would get away with his behaviour alot more than on the small framed blonde girl who's reasonably attractive.

I'm inclined to agree with you Gusto the whole argument should have been a non event but she got hysterical and added insults he never said to embellish what he actually did say.

I didn't feel any sympathy for her at all. She asked him why he didn't like her, he told her she is irritating. If you don't want to hear it why ask.
