The Celebreality Interview – Jasmine



Below, Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch‘s Jasmine talks about the unexpected freedom of living in a reality house, the beauty of Chiclet-like teeth, the strategy of being pleasant and the anguish of saying goodbye to Chad.

How was your time on the show?

I had fun. It was one of the best experiences I had so far. I really liked it.

What did you like the most about it?

I liked that I really didn’t have to do nothing. No responsibilities. You get up, you take a drink, you go swimming – you know, just do whatever you want to do. You say whatever you want to say, you don’t have to worry about the consequences. I just liked being free.

It sounds like being a kid again.

Yeah. It was cool.

What did you think of Chad?

I think Chad is a really down-to-earth person. He’s sweet, he’s nice and his personality is similar to mine. So that was a plus. He’s a cool dude.

I really enjoyed your interviews. That said, you know that Tyra Banks’ name is “Tyra,” and not “Tara,” right?

Yeah, but you know, hey. They sound kinda the same, so I guess she was taking the similarities to her head or something. I don’t know. I think that she just thought she was somebody important, so there it is. She’s not Tyra Banks. I don’t even know that girl’s name on the show – Tara or Tyra? Who cares.

I thought it was hilarious when you compared Chad’s teeth to Chiclets. You meant that as a compliment, right?

They are, they’re so white and so perfect. You know how Chiclets are extra square and perfect? That’s how each one of Chad’s teeth are. They’re like a big box of Chiclets.

It seemed like you spent a lot of your time in the house arguing with people. Was that stressful?

No. It was fun. Being in the house was stressful, ‘cause you can’t go anywhere. You’re in there sitting and it’s quiet and you have nothing to do but yell at somebody. I felt better when I could get my frustrations out on a person. I’d take it out on whoever. I don’t care. Makes me feel better. I’ll make you feel like s*** and I’ll feel like a baby wipe: nice and soft.

So when you watch yourself calling Laurice a “bitch” several times in a row, you don’t feel any sort of regret?

No. I wish I woulda said more to her. I wish I woulda gone off on her extra. I feel like I didn’t say enough, but I was so mad. I knew I couldn’t hit her, and the only thing I could think to say was calling her a bitch so many times. I couldn’t believe she called me a bitch for no reason! I didn’t deserve that. If I could go back in time, I would get her more.

What would you say?

I wouldn’t tell her nothing, I’d probably do something to her. One of the clips that they didn’t show was when she pissed me off, I put my dirty shoes on and I ran in her bed. And then I took her suitcase out of the closet and I hid it from her. Stuff like that. Sneaky stuff. She didn’t know who did it, but it was me. I did it all!

Why didn’t you get along with Tara and Ericka? Just because they were in an alliance with Laurice?

I didn’t like Tara because she is a f***ing liar. When we were upstairs, she was like, “Oh, I don’t like Chad. I don’t want to be here anymore.” This was before me and Tara had any kind of confrontation. We didn’t have no beef, no nothing. It was just me, her and Angela talking. For her to still be there pissed me off. Everybody in the house told Chad what she said. I don’t think you should stay in the house if you don’t want to be there. Ericka’s ass just following her like a lost dog. She doesn’t have her own mind. It’s so jacked up from her Botox, she doesn’t have no more brain cells left. She didn’t have anything else to do but to follow people, and that pissed me off, too.

How deep is your animosity for these people? Is it just a show thing, or does it go beyond that?

It’s not a show, I just don’t like liars or people that cross me. I understand it’s a TV show, but it’s reality and the key word in reality is real, and if you’re not being real, you’re being fake and I don’t like fake people.

Although, you kind of pulled that strategy yourself when you turned over a new leaf and were nice to people after being so aggressive.

Yeah, but I made it a point that this is what I was doing. I wasn’t going to switch it up and make it be like I was really that person that I’m not. I don’t want to be friends with you guys, but if that’s what I need to do to stay in the house, I’ll do it and I’ll let it be known.

Do you think that plan backfired on you?

I think it may have, but if I would have continued being the regular me, I don’t know if that would have been too aggressive. I’m a nice person sometimes, when I want to be. And there wasn’t too much going on the house to be yelling at me.

I found it ironic that in the episode before the one in which you were eliminated, you couldn’t believe no one was throwing anyone under the bus, and then Tiphiani eneded up throwing you under the bus.

That really pissed me off, because I talk to Tiphani all the time, like on a daily basis. I saw that she did that and I was like, “Really?” That was a low blow. I’ve never said anything about her at all. She was supposed to be my friend and we were strategizing together. I guess when I said, “Do you need me to teach you how to drive?” she didn’t. She ran the bus right over me, flattened me out like a pancake.

Yes, you should be careful what you wish for.

Yeah, but it’s a competition. If I had the chance I’d probably throw her under the bus, too.

You seemed really disappointed to be eliminated. We could hear you whisper, “Please let me stay, I don’t want to go home.”

I was pissed. I was very disappointed that I was sent home. The elimination was so long, there were tears in there, and I was like, “If it’s this hard for you to send me home, I don’t think you should. You really should think down deep inside, do you really want me to go home?” I didn’t want to leave, I didn’t deserve to leave and I didn’t do nothing wrong to leave.

I got the feeling that we weren’t supposed to hear your whispered plea to stay.

I wasn’t even worried about the microphone. That was just me being the person that I am. I have to let my feelings out. The cameras, the microphones, I didn’t really care about that. That was just a true moment of mine. It was pretty sad.

You were really there for him?

I was the only one that made the effort to tell him about anything wrong, anything suspicious. Everyone else was like, “Well, I don’t know, I didn’t hear…” If there’s something bad on someone else’s behalf that you know could potentially lead them to be kicked out, why not say something? Everybody was so worried about how they were going to be perceived on TV that they didn’t want to say anything to him.

Did you ever worry about how you’d be perceived?

No. I’m still gonna be happy. I don’t care about what nobody says. I’m happy with the person that I am. People have talked about me before, and people will continue to talk about me. There’s nothing you can do to fix yourself. There’s always gonna be one person that has something to say. Why stress yourself out trying to be somebody that you’re not?

Did you like your portrayal?

I don’t have no problem with it. I did what I did for reasons, so hey – I don’t care.

    how sad Chad Mr. Ocho cinco really didnt want the black woman on the show but he wanted to make sure he looked good for the show…. talken bout being real : just pick who you want next time.

  4. Bessieola says:

    Jasmine I thought you were the better girl for Chad & love your personality. You were being real & I guess most men can’t accept that. I think Chad made a bad choice by sending you home & especially an even worse decision by keeping Tara she is so fake, but life goes on. Just learn from this experience because it can only make you a better person.

  5. Autumn says:

    girl I was wanted you to stay on the whole time! I thought you was really good for Chad. I definitely cannot stand that Tara!

  9. Nikki says:

    Chad seem to have a fever for Latin women.. I knew all the brown sugars ladies was going to be going going gone (Giving the boot off the show)Fact #1 he changed his name Huh??? Lol.

  10. PEEWEE says:

    Jasmine, you were a little bit loud , should have calmed down a bit, less obnoxious. But, I agree the two left, Brittany(ms. Botox) and Rubi, both don’t want him for him, maybe his money and fame but not him. He seems like a lier himself that is why he liked that trash Tara, I think for a man of his class, he is low,low low. He picked the dumbest women in the world , no white person of his class……would ever look at a black women and look at him chose the dumbest white and hispanic women.
    That say’s it all. but I dont think he is going to choose no one…..he needs to be raising his kids and stop dating so much and have a relationship with his baby mama’s.

  11. chocolata1 says:

    I think you were yourself and he just don’t like Black women oh well a lost for him.. Come on black men tired of reality shows and yalls White gurl uhuh

  14. shaybay says:

    I think jasmine was the most realist and down to earth. He’s afraid of a woman like that….to stand her own ground.

  15. Kee says:

    Jas, you really made AA women look bad. I think that you are an attractive and bright young lady. However, your disposition was negative and highly immature. You just made us all look really bad. You seemed to really dislike Laurice and she didn’t do anything to you. Just because she is not loud and obnoxious and gravitated towards “other” ladies in the house did not mean that you needed to be so hateful. You are so immature. That was catty and silly. You took issue with her long before that shouting match. This was your doing, not hers.

  16. xchele says:

These days of austerity and also relative anxiousness about running into debt, many individuals balk up against the idea of using a credit card in order to make purchase of merchandise or maybe pay for a holiday, preferring, instead just to rely on the tried plus trusted means of making settlement – hard cash. However, if you possess cash there to make the purchase in full, then, paradoxically, this is the best time just to be able to use the cards for several good reasons.

  29. Good blog, but it would be better if in future you can share more about this subject. Keep rocking.
