Celebrity Big Brother Chris Kirkpatrick CBB Plans
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the former chart topper jokingly said that he plans on “crying myself to sleep” in the Diary Room of the “Celebrity Big Brother” house. “I think I’m least looking forward to not seeing my family or having that connection with the outside world that I usually have,” he said, adding, “It’s going to be difficult being cut off from everything and not even being able to hug my son every morning or kiss my wife every morning or things like that. Hopefully I’ll deal with and just cry myself to sleep in the Diary Room.”
Kirkpatrick also said that he’s excited for the good, the bad, and the ugly. “I’m excited for it all. Even the horrible parts of Big Brother are part of the experience. The thing I am looking forward to the least is eating slop. I don’t want to eat that. I’m a very picky eater. Anybody who knows me knows that’s going to be very difficult,” he said.
