It's not even one day down, and already 'Celebrity Big Brother' has gotten itself in trouble.
Rodrigo Alves, better known as the Human Ken Doll, was formally warned by Big Brother last night after using the n-word twice during filming. Alves was brought into the Diary Room and reprimanded for his language and told that if he did so again, he would be removed immediately from the house. Alves apologised and said that he "had a lot to drink," and said that he was very "hangovered" (sic), however Big Brother said that it was giving Alves a formal and final warning.
Big Brother does not tolerate the use of highly offensive, racially charged language in the House. Rodrigo has received a formal and final warning and if he uses such language again, he will be removed immediately. Rodrigo has apologised for his comments. #CBB pic.twitter.com/NX8scGPUkW

Meanwhile, Rylan read out a statement on Stormy Daniels' exit - or rather, non-entry - to 'Celebrity Big Brother', indicating that Daniels pulled out just five hours before the show was due to begin and cited the same reports from yesterday; namely, that she was in the middle of a divorce and custody battle, and that it prevented her from committing to the show.
The heavily scripted segment also added that reports that Daniels demanded more money, or that the producers intended to control Daniels so as to bring about a specific outcome, were "totally false," and that "no housemate is bigger than Big Brother." The segment also featured Daniels' pre-recorded VT, but seeing as how she's no longer in the show, it's all for naught.
Interestingly, there was no mention of Samantha Markle-Grant's non-appearance despite she herself saying that she's getting ready to appear on the series. Could it be that she'll join later on?
'Celebrity Big Brother' continues tonight on 3e.
