Big Brother 19 Raven Walton Addressed All The Alleged Lies She Told On The Show
Recently, Entertainment Tonight got to chat with Big Brother 19 houseguest Raven Walton (above) and they let her know in a nice way that a lot of people thought she might have been straight up lying about numerous ailments and other things she claimed while on the show. Then they asked her to give a statement to address her many doubters.
She still stuck to her stories. She said they’re absolutely true and that people have the right not to believe her. She also addressed the comment about her mother being in Mensa.
Entertainment Tonight mentioned that a lot of viewers questioned things Raven said in the house and went as far as to use the hashtag #ExposeRavenParty. They dug up past local news stories about Raven and her family after she shared a lot of information with her fellow houseguests on past medical procedures, diseases and family history.
Raven claimed she had a couple of terminal illnesses, something called rough kneecap syndrome, dying nerves or something like that. The list really did go on and on to the point that some of her fellow houseguests started calling her a compulsive liar!
During their interview, Entertainment Tonight said, “You shared a lot of your backstory on the show. Opened up a lot. Some viewers questioned because there was so much. What do you have to say to some of the viewers that maybe questioned some of your backstory?”
Raven responded by saying, “If you want to question it, that’s fine. Everyone has the right to their own opinion, but I just really wanted to be an open book. I do have a lot wrong with me and I didn’t use it as a crutch. I just wanted to educate people and inspire people.”
After that, Entertainment Tonight said, “A lot of people are like, ‘You don’t look sick.’” Raven said, “I’ve had that even before I went on the show. Well, you can’t see it. There’s something wrong with me on the inside. I do have a lot wrong with me and to clear this up. I said in the house, my mom could be a part of Mensa. She went to law school. Unfortunately, she got sick and was not able to graduate. She could join Mensa tomorrow. She’s a very intelligent woman and I’m proud to be her daughter.
I’m a sick woman. I do have terminal illnesses. I don’t let it stop me. I don’t let it bring me down.”
They also got her main squeeze Matt Cline’s take on all the stories she told in the house. He said he believes everything Raven said and trusts that she would fess up to anything that may have been exaggerated. He stated,”I believe everything Raven said in the house. If she was making that stuff up, that’s a heck of a good story because that is very unique. So yeah, maybe some of it wasn’t true, and I’m assuming she’ll let me know if it wasn’t. I mean I did see the scar and the pacemaker so I’m assuming at least part of that to be true.”
Aside from addressing all the stories she told in the house, Raven revealed what’s next for her and Matt’s budding relationship. She’s apparently very excited to see what’s going to happen with it. She said,”I’m excited to see what the future holds for me and Matthew. We have connected on a whole new level.”
They also got a statement from Matt about the future of their relationship. He seemed excited too and pretty much echoed what Raven said. He stated, “We’re gonna see what happens. We’re gonna hang around California for a week and spend time with each other. We haven’t known each other for a single minute outside of this house. So yeah, I’m excited to get to know Raven outside of the house and see where it goes. I’m excited.”
Alright, that’s what Raven had to say to all of her doubters out there. Basically, she’s claiming those are her stories and she’s sticking to them no matter what. She seems to have Matt roped in enough to believe anything she says. So, it is what it is I guess. Stay tuned.
