Paulie Calafiore is showering Zakiyah Everette with love and gifts as they take their romance to the next level outside of the Big Brother house. Paulie recently bought his CBS showmance a pair of pricey Christian Louboutin shoes. It may not be a diamond ring, but it’s the next best thing.
Paulie and Zakiyah have been very active on social media since they reunited outside of the Big Brother game, and their latest posts prove that their showmance has turned into a real-life romance. Everette posted a video of Calafiore sitting in a high-end department store shoe department. She captioned the clip with, “When bae wants to spoil you.”
Later, Zakiyah posted a photo of the Louboutins that Paulie bought her. She captioned it with, “These. Thank you bae.”
Paulie Calafiore and Zakiyah Everette have already taken a few road trips together since Big Brother ended late last month. Paulie met Z’s family in North Carolina and Zakiyah appears to already be part of the family at the Calafiore home in New Jersey.
Calafiore recently serenaded his lady love on Periscope and fans were able to see the affection they have for one another.
Speaking of Periscope, the duo’s latest session shows that they are very comfortable with each other while in front of the camera. Zaulie’s most recent Periscope chat took place in the Calafiore living room where they were joined by Paulie’s brother Cody and his sister Angelina, as well as their dad, Paul Calafiore and Paulie’s friend Anthony. Paulie and Z were also wearing facial masks during the session.
Calafiore said the most beautiful thing about Everette is her heart.
“Her beauty through the roof,” Paulie Calafiore added. “If she was a 10, her heart makes her a 12 or a 20.”
Paulie also told Zakiyah “I love you” in Italian, and the couple went in to talk about their first impressions of each other when they initially met in the Big Brother house earlier this summer. Calafiore also revealed that Zakiyah sends him scriptures from the Bible every day and that she told them God has to be present in their relationship.
Paulie Calafiore and Zakiyah Everette had a tumultuous relationship while they were in the Big Brother game and not everyone agrees that they are a match made in reality TV heaven. While things started out cute, Paulie distanced himself when he felt that Z was becoming too smothering. At one point, Calafiore said he felt like he couldn’t breathe because his BB18 girlfriend was so insecure about their relationship.
By the time they got to the jury house, the romance was seemingly done. In fact, after being sequestered with the anti-Paulie Da’Vonne Rogers and Bridgette dunning, Z wouldn’t even speak to Paulie when he first showed up at the jury.
But a CBS update later showed that Paulie and his lady love had rekindled their connection as they were ostracized by the rest of the jurors. Things came to a boiling point when Paulie got into a shouting match with Da’Vonne, who called Everette out for cozying up to Calafiore. Da’Vonne later explained why she felt the need to call out Zakiyah for “choosing” Paulie over her female friends.
In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, Zakiyah explained how she and Paulie got back on track after their Big Brother breakup.
“When he first came in [to the jury], I didn’t talk to him for four days,” Everette said.
“I went off on him, and then I just kept quiet for like four days. I didn’t say anything to him. And then we finally sat down and talked about everything. Everything that was ever said, anything that was ever done.”
Now that they’re official, Paulie and Zakiyah are spending as much time together as they can. A recent trip to her hometown had the couple cruising around in a Mercedes and checking out the local sights before Zakiyah joined Paulie at his home in New Jersey. And next up, it will be time to decide if Z will stay in North Carolina or move to Jersey.
“Honestly, I’m just gonna listen to God,” she said. “I’m just gonna have to pray on it… if God wants me to stay in Charlotte, I’m gonna stay in Charlotte. If God wants me to move to New Jersey, then that’s where I’m gonna go.”
