In Friday’s episode of the U.K.’s Celebrity Big Brother 18, houseguests continued to get surprises related to loved ones or those somehow intimately connected to their lives.
On Thursday’s show, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, singer Aubrey O’Day received a loving message from her boyfriend Pauly D, who told her how much he missed her, loved her, and was desperately waiting for her return.
The message dispelled the many rumors that Pauly had coldly broken up with Aubrey without her knowledge, following her sequester in the Celebrity Big Brother 18 house.
As other cast members received their surprise messages from home, Frankie Grande anxiously awaited his. He was not disappointed when the image of his sister, pop star Ariana Grande, appeared and she expressed how proud she was of her sibling.
Ariana’s said the following in her message to her brother.
“Hi Frankie. It’s me, your sister. I just wanted to say how much I love you and how proud I am of you. I’ve been watching and you’re killing it, and I’m so proud of you for being fan favorite every single week. I love you, I’m proud of you for being yourself. I miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you. I have so much to tell you, I have so much music to play you. So much has happened and I can’t wait for you to come out. And… come home soon… not too soon. Win first and then come home. I love you, I miss you, I can’t wait to see you.”
In anticipation of Ariana’s appearance on the series, RSVP Magazine sarcastically quipped, “This might be the first time we’ve seen an actual celeb on Celebrity Big Brother!”
Nevertheless, Frankie was over the moon upon seeing and hearing his famous sister as the other houseguests watched on and comforted him after it was over, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Frankie, however, was not the only Celebrity Big Brother houseguest who received a touching boost from home. Mob Wives star Renee Graziano was given a letter from her son AJ, which caused her to emotionally break down.
In the correspondence, AJ told his mother he loved her and missed her greatly, also saying, “I’m so proud of you… keep up the good work.” AJ added not to let Stephen Bear, who at times has been a terror in the Celebrity Big Brother house, get to her, calling the U.K. reality star an “a**hole.”
As Lewis Bloor read Renee’s letter to her, she could not contain herself, periodically covering her face with her shirt to hide how emotional she had become upon hearing her son’s words. Frankie and Aubrey hugged her as she cried tears of joy over the loving letter.
Renee apologized to Bear shortly thereafter, telling him the only reason her son referred to him in a derogatory manner is because she and Bear had experienced run-ins with one another in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Bear shrugged it off, but seemed to remain a bit upset about the emotional messages the other houseguests had obtained over the week because he, as of yet, had not been given such a treat.
Instead, on Thursday’s show, he was seen in a task where he was made to stand perfectly still as he was confronted by his now ex-girlfriend, Lillie Lexie Gregg, who appeared distraught over the sexual behavior she had seen him engage in inside the Celebrity Big Brother house with already evicted cast member Chloe Khan.
According to the Birmingham Mail, fans have rallied around Lillie following her appearance on the show, which heightened after Chloe tweeted Lillie was playing up being a victim. So far, it is unclear if Bear, who has been the house villain, will eventually receive an emotional message from home.
