Mystery Over Heather's Departure Builds, Likely Kaya-Related Despite Host's Claims
By SurvivorBlows, 01/27/2001
In an interview with her hometown newspaper yesterday, Heather Perry revealed that despite host Mark L. Warburg's claims at the time of the announcement of Heather's departure during episode 3 that it "had nothing to do with Kaya", her decision to leave did in fact have something to do with her date with Kaya.
Though she insists she can't reveal anymore until the 6th and final episode of the series has ended, she says "My particular story is probably their main story for the entire show," Perry said. "Iím the one that came off the island with a really, really strange story." "Legally, I canít explain," she said.
The exact details of what happened on her date with Kaya that caused her to want to leave the show -- and whether or not it's possibly related to the earlier rumor we reported in which it's said she left the show after learning of Ytossie and Taheed's child (perhaps Kaya revealed this little nugget during their date) -- remains unclear for now.
Little is know of her date with Kaya, audiences saw little of Perryís date with Kaya. In one clip, Kaya complained that good conversations with Perry were "few and far between." The feeling was mutual, Perry said during the interview. On their date, she said, Kaya was more interested in talking to outsiders who recognized them from the show. (no, he's not in it for the publicity :-)
"It was good fun and stuff," she said. "From a moral standpoint, I didnít agree with what was happening."
Hummm... the mystery deepens. Thanks to Skye for the news article reference.
