View Full Version : Big (Bad) Brother
24th May 2007, 11:23 AM
Okay, so whether you like it or not Emma's father has died and nobody has told her. (http://www.samesame.com.au/news/local/814/Big_Brother_Deceased_Daddy)It was her father's wishes apparently that her Big Brother experience not be interrupted by his pesky little funeral.
Does he have the right to do this? Does anyone? In a matter as big as this, should she have been able to make that choice for herself?

The thing to remember here is that Emma was estranged from her father but I guess she should be told. It'll make riveting viewing!

and again we see just how morally devoid bb is....... of course she should be told - everyone has the right to make their own decisions and she should be free to grieve and make her own choices.

Hell no. The whole point of Big Brother is they have no contact with the outside world. That's what they sign up for when they go in.

Of cousre she should have been told -regardless of her and her dad being estranged. Even better would have been for her to be told that her father was dying so she could have had a chance (if she wanted) to maybe reconcile before he died - it might not have been possible but often with cancer paitents the Docs have a fair idea when the ends is near and they could have got Emma there in time.
This was not a house plant that died - it was her father - she should have been given the choice

I think she deff should have been given the choice, how many people feel bad for the rest of there life that they never made up with some one before they died....
and to make it worse, when she does find out, it could be up to 3 months after the fact. thats horrible.

When you enter the BB house you can elect to have BB tell you about certain things (remembe Kate being told about her goldfish dying?). She knew he was dying and didn't elect to have that as one of the things that BB tells her, so of course she should not be notified. SHE chose not to know! The only bad thing about this is that somehow it's become public knowledge and that everyone is debating what is best for her.
