That sound you hear is thousands of “Celebrity Big Brother” fans breathing a collective sigh of relief as Stormy Daniels has NOT been asked to join the cast of the latest celeb edition. When Gold Derby posted our fantasy dream cast at the beginning of the year, “Big Brother” viewers were nearly unanimous in their outrage over one of our picks: adult entertainer and alleged Donald Trump mistress Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels. Well, it looks like you all got your wish!
In lieu of Stormy, there is one notable houseguest with a connection to Trump: former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, aka The Mooch. The other 11 cast members for “Celebrity Big Brother” Season 2 are Lolo Jones, Kato Kaelin, Dina Lohan, Ryan Lochte, Tamar Braxton, Ricky Williams, Natalie Eva Marie, Tom Green, Joey Lawrence, Jonathan Bennett and Kandi Burruss. Get a closer look at all 12 contestants by clicking through our photo gallery below. Julie Chen Moonves will once again return as host of CBS’s reality TV show.
According to the “BB” rumor mill, Stormy was actually asked to be a part of the UK version of the show last year, but a deal never came to fruition. Love her or hate her, there’s no denying the fact that Stormy would have made “Celebrity Big Brother” must-see TV. Remember all those headlines that former White House aide Omarosa made last year? Whether it was hissing that she wouldn’t vote for Trump again “in a million years” or slamming Vice President Mike Pence for his religious beliefs, it seemed as though every time Omarosa was on screen she was making our jaws drop.
Below, see just a small sampling of fan reaction to Stormy being one of our fantasy cast members for “Celebrity Big Brother.” Are YOU happy that she won’t be on the show? Sound off down in the comments section.
Marie: “I won’t be watching this season [if she’s on it]. Her 5 min of fame are up as far as I’m concerned!”
Lisa: “I will not be watching if Stormy is going to be on there.”
Dawn: “How does Stormy Daniels affect any if our lives? She doesn’t!”
Jackie Stephens: “Shame, shame, shame. Stormy Daniels really?”
Janice Mason: “I have mixed feelings about Stormy. She portrayed herself as a good and caring mother now, leaving what she did in the past behind her. I really don’t want politics or Trump discussed. But free speech prevails on that one.”
Cheryl Yoakum: “Stormy Daniels is not the one to be on there and certainly don’t wanna hear anything about Trump (Thumper). Please please go back to normal every day people.”
