Kaitlyn Herman defends flirtatious 'Big Brother' behavior despite having longtime boyfriend at home
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/16/2018
Kaitlyn Herman apparently believes she has done nothing wrong when it comes to her flirtatious nature in the Big Brother house this season.
Kaitlyn has taken a lot of heat in recent weeks, both from her fellow houseguests and Big Brother viewers, over her behavior with men in the house considering she has a serious boyfriend back in Encino, CA.
"You know what Rockstar said that pissed me off just now?" Kaitlyn told Faysal on July 11, according toUs Weekly.
"She said to me, 'If I was doing the sh-t that you do, I wouldn't have a home to go home to.' This is who I am, a-h-le. I hope I have somewhere to go home to, too. I hope Joe doesn't take it the wrong way."
Kaitlyn was referring to her boyfriend of five years, Joe Pincus, who works as a deejay.
One day after speaking with Faysal about Rockstar's comments, Kaitlyn discussed the situation with Tyler as well.
"She doesn't know who I am. I'm so self-aware," Kaitlyn reportedly said on July 12. "I'm on national television. My friends and family know who I am. I'm such an affectionate person. This has always been Kaitlyn. It always will be."
Live feeds have shown Kaitlyn holding Brett's hand, cudding with multiple guys in bed, and telling Tyler she would "drop everything" for him. Kaitlyn also wrote on Tyler's arm once, "I want to kiss you."
On Wednesday, Joe released a statement on Twitter confirming he's not happy about Kaitlyn's antics in the house.
"I tried to stay silent but clearly that isn't an option as I've been overwhelmed with the volume of everything on TV and social media. I've been trying to separate myself from the show and the situation as much as possible," Joe wrote.
"I did indeed request (not demand) for [my] 'show release' to be pulled, and that is still to be determined (I'm aware people in past seasons have done this). All other accounts reporting 'insider info' are lying to you or twisting a story."
Joe refused to comment any further on his girlfriend's flirtatious behavior, except for saying he'd be "focusing on my family and friends, wellbeing and my music" going forward and he's thankful to the people who are "not pushing a false narrative."
