During Thursday night's live episode, Big Brother: All-Stars' houseguests evicted Da'Vonne, a 32-year-old acting coach from Inglewood, CA who previously appeared on Big Brother 17 and Big Brother 18, from the Big Brother house through a 5-2 vote over Kevin "KC" Campbell, a 40-year-old ad agency executive from San Diego, CA who placed third on Big Brother 11.
In Da'Vonne's set of pre-taped goodbye messages, Nicole admitted she had lied to Da'Vonne for days about voting out Ian because she had been in an alliance with five other people since Day 2.
"I got caught in this lie where I had to vote Ian out of the house. I'm so sorry, Da'Vonne. I just really hope you'll give me a chance outside this house to be friends because I really love you as a person," Nicole cried.
Despite Nicole's apology, Da'Vonne is apparently still frustrated and upset with her.
"I feel the same about Nicole as I did when I left the house. Her message did not make it any better. In fact, it made it worse," Da'Vonne admitted to Us Weekly in a video interview.
"Game-related, I get it. You want to protect your moves and you want to protect your alliances. However, we were in an alliance. So you just let me know that I wasn't your priority alliance. I was at the bottom. So thank you for that. That's one."
Da'Vonne continued, "And then two, I let Nicole know, 'Hey, on a personal level -- not even game, on a personal level -- I'm coming to you and asking about this vote because it's bigger than the game. I, as a Black woman, do not want to be on this television bashing this Black man for something he didn't do. I don't want that. So, for me, as your friend, on a personal level, can you give me that?'"
Da'Vonne was referring to David Alexander, whom Nicole and Dani Briones had set up by pinning Nicole's vote to evict Ian on David.
Had Nicole voted to evict Tyler Crispen like she had promised Da'Vonne, there would have been a tie vote and Dani, as that week's Head of Household, would have been responsible for breaking the tie.
Da'Vonne assumed Dani would have voted her way since they were allies, but Da'Vonne wasn't aware at the time both Nicole and Dani were part of the house's majority alliance called The Committee with Tyler, Memphis Garrett, Christmas Abbott, and Cody Calafiore.
"I even gave her an excuse for game purposes," Da'Vonne recalled of her conversations with Nicole.
"I told her, I said, 'Hey, did you think we were going to flip out at the last minute? So you freaked out and panicked and you decided to flip your vote?' I tried to give her an excuse to use to tell me the truth and she just wouldn't."
Da'Vonne therefore admitted she's still "a little bothered" and the situation just sucked.
"I'm a little bothered by that. But there's room for conversation. At the moment, there's not a lot of respect in the gameplay or the personal play right now. I'm struggling. But it's fresh. We'll see," Da'Vonne said.
Because of Nicole's betrayal, Da'Vonne bashed David in the Diary Room for being a shady liar and backstabber, which is the result Da'Vonne had been hoping to avoid.
"When I play this game, I usually don't have regrets. That is something that I definitely regret. I regret going off on him and being upset with him and accusing him of something he didn't do," Da'Vonne acknowledged to Us.
"Granted, David's track record with me, as far as him lying and sabotaging my game... Come on, it was off the charts. It wasn't like that was my buddy [and] we were aligned. It was great and all of a sudden I started accusing him of stuff. That wasn't the case at all."
Da'Vonne confirmed trust was simply "not there" with David, even before the Nicole incident.
"It was just bad. But above all of that, I'm extremely apologetic and I hope that he can forgive me and that there can be a conversation and we can move forward," Da'Vonne noted.
"But I'm definitely sitting here like, 'Ugh, I feel really bad.' I feel terrible... I have no regrets other than the situation with David."
Also in her interview, Da'Vonne revealed which All-Star she believes is playing the best game right now.
"I think Dani is doing a really good job in this game. I am concerned that she does have her hands in a lot of pots right now. But hopefully that doesn't bite her in the butt if she can make it to those Final 2 chairs," Da'Vonne shared.
"Also, I'm excited about the game that David is playing. I feel like, at this point in the game, he needs to just fly under the radar."
Big Brother: All-Stars has reached the point when The Committee alliance must turn on each other, so Da'Vonne teased, "It's going to get messy."
"People are going to start shooting at their friends and their alliance members, and while that's happening, if [David] is just under all the fire, he can skate to the end. I believe that," Da'Vonne noted.
Considering Da'Vonne's time on Big Brother: All-Stars ended earlier than she had been anticipating, she revealed that she'd love to play the game again.
"I'll play this game every time they call me -- until I win. Once I win, I'm done. But yeah, over and over and over. I love this game," Da'Vonne said.
