High stakes and forgiveness, could they be faking it?
With Biggie questioning their reasoning, some All Stars were forced to rethink their decisions.
Forgiven but not forgotten
Head of house Cross was the first of the All Stars in the diary room to make his stake, and as the leader of the pack, he went all in. When he was done, Big Brother asked him about the argument he had with Venita as Biggie did with Venita, who had far more to say than Cross. She mentioned that Cross’s lack of confidence in this week’s wager victory is showing, adding that Cross had taken out his anger on her during their altercation. Biggie warned Venita to be careful of her words in the heat of the moment because once said, they can be forgiven but not forgotten.
Venita took this advice to heart and sought Cross out after her diary session to talk it out. When they had a sit-down, Venita aired her thoughts, saying she didn’t like what he did to her and wasn’t sure how genuine his apology is. All in all, she apologised for being mean to him.

Similarly, the issue between Ceec and Ilebaye also came up in the diary room. Biggie heard from Ilebaye concerning her altercation with Ceec which started from abuse of her makeup foundation to the kissing of Doyin’s framed picture on the All Stars memory wall. When recounting her part, Ilebaye said she wasn’t aware that the foundation she used belonged to Ceec. She also brought up the fact that she made an attempt to talk it out with Ceec but Ceec wasn’t open to it.
For Ceec, her main bone of contention was Ilebaye using the foundation carelessly and lying about it. In Ceec’s words, “She never owned up to it. She told Biggie that she was being careful not to talk to Ilebaye about their issues, especially as she was still upset. On the matter of cleaning Ilebaye’s kisses from Doyin’s photo, Ceec agreed that now that she thinks about it, it seems some kind of way. Ceec and Ilebaye later had a conversation and it would seem as though they made a truce, but time will tell.

Cross and Venita’s epic clash
Tensions continue to run high in the Big Brother All Stars house.
In a house where emotions run high and tensions can flare at the drop of a hat, it was only a matter of time before another heated confrontation took place. This time, the spotlight fell on Cross and Venita, two housemates who clashed in an explosive argument during their preparations for the upcoming wager challenge. As the housemates dove into sports-themed preparations, miscommunication led to a fiery exchange that left everyone stunned.

Igniting the the spark
Earlier, Venita had asked to be excused from rehearsals in order to take her medication, and HoH Cross allowed it, telling her she was “free to leave”. Later on, Cross found her showering, which he took exception to because that hadn’t been part of their agreement. When he confronted Venita about her actions, a heated war of words ensued. Cross decried the housemates’ lack of cooperation and lackadaisical attitude towards the task and told Venita “I said you were free to take your medication, not take a shower,” prompting Venita to defend herself against the perceived slight.
Venita voiced out her disappointment that Cross would think she would dodge putting in work for any task because she had shown up to all the meetings she needed to be in. She dug in her heels and told Cross she had been involved in the sport-themed wager preparations and hadn’t slacked one bit.
As miscommunication fanned the flames, the exchange grew increasingly intense, with Venita hurling curses at Cross in her frustration. In the heat of the moment, she even made a rather colourful threat, declaring that she would “shade his face like a coloring book.”
Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed as Alex and Whitemoney stepped in to calm Cross down. Adekunle also intervened, scooping Venita into his arms, and carried her to the bedroom. Venita expressed her genuine offense at the situation in a conversation with Adekunle, telling him: “Stop this thing, I am genuinely offended.” Later on, as Adekunle tried to catch some shut-eye while in bed with Venita, she raised the matter again, voicing out her disappointment with Cross.

In the pressure cooker environment of the Big Brother Naija All Stars house, clashes like the one between Cross and Venita are almost inevitable. However, as quickly as tensions flare, they can also dissipate, leaving the housemates to navigate their complex relationships and high-stress challenges. One thing is for certain: drama continues to be a key part of life in the Big Brother house.
