The Celebreality Interview – Brittany



It’s evident from Brittany’s post-show interview below that he has little to no hard feelings about not being chosen as Chad’s ultimate catch (a lot of that could have to do with her enduring friendship with Rubi). Below, the Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch runner-up talks baby daddy drama, her connection with Chad and how the presence of cameras affected her mysterious illness.

How was your time on the show?

It was a really good experience. It was a great opportunity. It was something I’ve never experienced before. It kinda felt like going to college and being part of a sorority house but ironically, all the girls were dating the same guy. [Laughs]

What do you think it was that ultimately led Chad to choosing Rubi over you? Was it the baby daddy thing or did it go deeper than that?

The baby daddy thing I think was a scapegoat. I think that was just an easy way of saying, “I was gonna pick Rubi from the jump.” They had chemistry from the first night. He picked her for the first dance. His eyes locked with her. Rubi is actually one of my really good friends now. So she’s a really great person inside and out. I know this sounds really kind of twisted but it came down to me and her feeling like, “If he picks you, I’m OK with that,” and “If he picks you, I’m OK with that.” I don’t know. Our personalities were almost on the same level. Even though I know me and him had a little bit of connection, I think choosing her makes the story play out a little bit better. Her sister entered her into this show, and it was all so coincidental. It did kind of suck to lose but I’m very happy for her.

Do you think they’re going to last? Rubi says she and Chad are actively pursuing something.

I mean, I would hope that it would and I hope that Chad has changed. It’s media, so who knows what’s true and what’s not, but I heard he’s already back on his game! He already has his pimp game rollin’ like, this girl, that girl. For Rubi’s sake, I hope that it works itself out because she has too big of a heart and she’s too naïve to see any different.

In the finale, we heard you say, “I never felt this way about a guy in such a short amount of time.” Is that true?

I think I genuinely meant that, yes. You have to understand that on these shows, you’re pulled away from your family, you’re pulled away from your work, you’re pulled away from your normal life. You don’t have a cell phone, you have no privacy. I now understand being on a show, how crazy these women can get over this guy. When you’re watching, you’re like, “Oh my god, this woman is crying over this guy. She’s only been with him for two weeks.” You have to understand you are with these girls and this guy all day all night, everyday with no outside connection. No TV, no books to read, no computer, no cell phone. You’re not checking your text messages to see if your ex-boyfriend texted. You are solely reliant on this one fella. So if he just rubs your knee you’re like, “Oh my gosh! I got a little attention today!” If he gives you some little attention you’re like, “Oh yeah!”

Are you saying that with some perspective you look back and realize it wasn’t that deep?

I felt like obviously the situation had a huge role on [my feelings] and it played out really big. But at the same time, Chad is very charming. He has a good personality. He’s very funny. So yeah, the feelings are real, it’s just more highly intensified because of your surroundings and the kind of situation that you’re put in. But yeah, the groundwork was definitely laid because he is a great person and his personality, so yeah you are really drawn to that.

Did your son watch the show?

Well, when he’s with his father, no. His father feels that it’s inappropriate. But when he’s with me, he’s like, “You know, my dad doesn’t let me watch you on TV.” He’s like so supportive of everything I do. I used to play for this football league and he would come to all my football games and my practices and he was really excited with that. He was excited when I did Hawaiian Tropic, like, “Oh my mom does this calendar! My mom’s on this billboard!” I have him on Sunday nights, so we’ll cuddle up and watch the show. He loved it.

Is that awkward during the romantic moments?

When I did the dance for Chad on the second-to-last episode, I put my hands over my son’s eyes. He was laughing. He is not your typical 9-year-old child. He’s very smart. He’s in the gifted class. People talk about nature or nurture, and I believe how you raise your kid is how they’re gonna turn out. So when they do go out into nature, they have those morals and everything that was instilled at a very young age. I know he’s not going to be like, “Oh my god, I saw my mom do this sexy dance on TV. I hate all women, they’re all sluts!”

Chad’s main red flag was not your son, but his father’s presence in your life. Was that fair?

I actually don’t think it was fair but if that’s the only bad thing you can say about me, then I think I’m doing pretty well. I told Chad, “You have three baby mommas — who are you to point your finger to me when I have one? I have full custody and I say what goes. This is my past. You said you didn’t wanna judge anybody from their past. I wouldn’t judge you from your past.” He was just really shocked by all that.

You were sick for much of the finale and the episode before that. Did you ever figure out what it was?

I never figured it out, and I’ve never been as sick as I was as I was on the show. Probably an hour before Chad’s mom arrived, I all of a sudden just felt so lightheaded. My head was pounding. I felt so sick. I thought I had a migraine. And everybody had thought that I had drank too much, but I’d only had one drink the night before. I don’t know if it was just a bad virus but I ended up way worse than the migraine. I started getting sick from both ends, like violently. I started hugging the toilet. I ended up staying in bed for three days. Finally, by the third day, they brought in a doctor to give me a shot. And he gave me a shot that had a combination of three antibiotics and he also prescribed me five medicines. I had a 103 temperature. It was horrible.

Was it humiliating that the doctor had to come in and give you a shot in your butt?

A little bit but at the point it’s almost like when you give birth to a kid — when you get to that extreme point of pain, you don’t give a flying f*** who walks in. You’re so disoriented because you’re in so much pain, and you just don’t even care. I was so miserable and it was even harder because you had a camera in your face the whole time. You don’t have any you time. Like I can’t go to the bathroom and throw up because I got a freakin’ camera chasing me behind my ass. It just made it even more stressful.

When you returned to the room after your final date with Chad, you implied that things got physical. Do you care to elaborate on that?

[Laughs] Whatever happens behind closed doors, happens behind closed doors. That’s all I can tell you.

What did you think of your portrayal on the show?

I mean, I kissed my thumb? What the f***? Remember that in the sled? That was a pinky swear sealed with a kiss. So no, I don’t think editing always made me come off as true to who I was. I feel like when you’re in the interview spot and you’re talking about the situations for hours at a time, you get to be dry, so you kind of up your personality a little more. I came across way cheesier than I normally am. I know that but other people don’t know that. So it’s up to them. They’re gonna judge regardless. If I cared what other people thought I would have been in trouble a long ass time ago.

Do you have any regrets?

I never regret anything I ever do. I wouldn’t do it if I was gonna regret it. I’m a little more open, I guess. I know that people found a clip of me doing a sexy dance on YouTube. I was in a music video and my friend wanted me to do something for his music that he’s trying to put out. I totally forgot that was on YouTube, and the minute I came back from the show, somebody found it and retagged it with a new title. Then my ex-husband’s like, “I can’t believe you were on the Internet doing that sexy dance.” I’m like, “Listen, I didn’t take my clothes off, I wasn’t doing anything overly risqué.” I teach pole and striptease. This is what I do. It’s okay. It’s socially acceptable in L.A. or Vegas and stuff like that, but here, outside Chicago, they think I’m a porno star. [Laughs]

    This chick totally looks like Sean Penn…Tara made the best comment ever. Everything Tara said had (serious) truth to it; that’s what made her PERFECT!

  2. kaymani says:

    This show is retarded, honestly I think that this show is a complete fake and all the girls are there because they want the fame. Rubi is a fake as well she doesn’t even seem like she feels anything for him and he is the stupid one that fell for it. Its sad that he had to come on a show, he must be really stupid, well thats what celebrity are anyways.

  3. danielle says:

    l feel that chad should have picked brit.because i felt that theywas a little more compatible then rubi

  4. kat says:

    It’s so frustrating to me these successful black men claim they love their moms and grandmoms so much,yet they can’t date or marry anyone that looks like them.Why is it when a black man has any measure of success he runs for the blonde stereotype barbie doll or Latina.I’m sooooo tired of it,and the powers that be who enable these train wreck of so called tv shows to taint any descent man’s idea of what he wants in a women.Every brother out there who would rather date out of his race instead of someone who looks like them,I hope you have enough money for the therapy your kids will need.How confused are most interacials? We all know the answer to that,very confused.Yes I’m sure there will be plenty of kids to secure the checks when these fake marriages don’t work out.Commonalities are what bond people,not what’s hot and what’s not.There are alot of sisters like my self professional and whom have it together, without drama,to be passed over by black men who are “SELL OUTS”.Like they would be accepted in a normal society without their money and connections.I think not,get a grip brothers.You are a just a pit stop for a women of non color to climb up the ladder of entertainment.Without your success you would be just another brother whom caucasions would cross the street and clutch their wallets or purses praying you don’t rob them.Get over your self and give some sisters a little play.You may just find someone suitable.You may just find real love.Not some unrealistic tv produced sham of a relationship,that will fade once the lights dim.

  5. Dwayne says:

    Even though they had things in common, I don’t think Chad would have been happy if he had picked Britt in the end.

  6. frank says:

    she said they didn’t have a cell phone to see if their ex boyfriend texted them. So was she saying she still keeps in contact with her ex and she gets late night text to smash. Good he didn’t choose her she does have guys in the picture. I understand people like sex but if a female is still connected with the ex that’s a problem.

  7. marie says:

    @frank she probably means he child’s father. In case something was wrong with her son.

  8. Vicky says:

    6 years go by, you aren’t still “doing it” with your ex. She does sound a little too affected by what her ex says though. He sensed a reason to worry about that and I think he should have, but honestly I think they were a better match than Rubi and him. Straight up he wasn’t as attracted to her and went with his feelings instead of logic. You have to have both in a successful relationship and I don’t forsee him and Rubi actually doing the forever thing. I don’t think that’s what he had really intended on anyway and knew she wasn’t mature enough to be ready for that either. Normal copout.

  9. Kristine says:

    To KAT, who says that “interracials” are confused, honey I’m confused! You say you are intelligent but you sound so sadly ignorant. Mixing races does not produce “confused interracials”. Wow, what an incredily inaccurate statement. Loving, responsible parents of ANY race, mixed or otherwise, have the potential to raise healthy, happy, productive individuals. I hope one day you realize your ignorance and accept that the world is improving and benefiting from mixed race relationships. And yes, I am a white woman with a black man, and our children are beautiful, smart, and well adjusted. Hope you let go of your resentment some day. It’s not an attractive quality.

  10. lt says:

    she is 22 and her son is 9…well damn she had him when she was 13.
    is she REALLY 22? looks older to me

  11. Mai says:

    Brit is 28 years old; not 22.
    But yea Chad is FAKE! Rubi is an idiot & Brit is better off without Chad anyways. Anybody knows what happened to Daisy of Love Season 2? Just curious.. And where’s all the I Love Money show?? I MISS IT!!! :(

  12. Melanie says:

    i say you should of one because i agree that he also had baby momma stuff going on for him to blame things about you with your ex husband & kid.

  14. candace says:

    Brittany kept it 100 the whole time. Chad didn’t deserve her. I think he is a coward and he is fake. Who doesn’t pick someone because they have a child, that was an excuse, and a bad one at that. He has 4 kids so helllllooooooo. I just think it’s so funny he didn’t want to pick a woman because she had a child and one ex yet he has 4 chidren and god knows how many ex’s!! Him & rubi will never last

  15. monique says:

    I feel that brittany was a little fake cuz she took until top 5 or 6 to finally step it up with the maid outfit or whatever dat was i felt she did it to stay in the competition cuz if she hadn’t chad might of sent her home i think the top two shouldve been tiphani and rubi but i do feel u britt on the baby mama situation the woman he chose will have to deal with them believe i know cuz i had deal with my bd other mamas and they was jelly of me cuz of our history(17 yrs) i think chad changing last name to ochocinco did attract the latino women y not have an independent strng black woman by ur side? i think society has them doing it for show whites and latinos but deep down they want a sista wat’s really going on?i think tara was da fakest in house she would’ve been the 1st to go she had fake written all across her i dont know wat took him so long 2 eliminate her? but i do believe britt had more in common with chad than rubi she seems to timid 4 someone like him(too submissive) get a spine….

  16. adelina says:


    You make good points and than you sound very ignorant with you interracial comments…

    Do not compare Latin women to white womn we are 100% different!!

    In case you didnt know the #1 Latin race come in all colors.. theyre is so many famous “black” that are actually latin background etc…. #2 Latin race is also a very dominant race. #3. We are both minorities who are always getting messed with …Have more in commom than u know… My brothers n siter are both happily married/kids with black partners…. my nephews are growing up with best of both cultures….

  17. ebonii says:

    Brittany’s whole focus seems to have been sexual. Additionally, that dance on YOUTUBE was not classy and would not have been good for Chad’s image …

  18. Churly says:

    Personally I never saw the last few episodes. I saw that Ruby was going to be the one a few episodes back and lost interest. I did however come to the website to confirm my intuition and….yup I was right. I mean you guys can not be surprised, really!

  19. nathan boyd says:

    i think it’s messed up that britt did’nt win.she has a point,he’s worrying about her baby daddy,when she would of had to worry about his baby momma’s let alone his kids.who’s to say if his kids would have liked her.that was a cop out on chad.he just wanted some one pretty like rubi who has none plus after he’s finished with her she’s gone like ghost believe me,he can get better plus it’s reality tv look at flav,give me a break do u really think that chad really needed to go on tv to get a women please.stick to catching footballs brother that’s what ur good at obviously relationships na(peace.)

  20. shiya says:

    i think Britt shoulda won: just because she is out going && she seems very intelligent.. Rubi kinda knew she was gonna win she thought she was the ish forreal.. but they aint gonna last long she too pretty some other celeb is gonna snatch her right up !

  21. Steph says:

    On one of the episodes, Chad takes Brittany and Tiffany shopping. Brittany gets a pair of shoes, they are grey and yellow. I really love them and I want to know where I can get them. What store and what brand are they. I have been looking on this site to contact someone and ask, but I can’t find anything. Someone please help me.
