#BBNaija 2020: I got carried away by my relationship with Eric – Lilo opens up
Last Sunday evicted BBNaija housemate, Lilo, says she got carried away by her relationship with Eric in the house that she lost focus in pursuing her own game as a housemate.
She had an interview with Ebuka on Monday, August 3 where she spoke about their relationship. Recall that in the house, she had mentioned to Big Brother that Eric was becoming a distraction and that she was going to start withdrawing. Well, that never happened as their relationship intensified immediately she left the diary room. Sadly, she was evicted alongside Ka3na on Sunday, August 2.
In her interview with Ebuka, Lilo said she placed her feelings before her goal in the house.
I put my feelings, my emotions before my goals. I was carried away. I wouldn’t say there was a strategy. I came in to be myself and to actually show the world me. I was taking my time to actually get familiar with the house. Everything was just in a rush. Everything happened too fast. Me being in the house, being my feelings. Everything happened so fast and I just couldn’t digest it all”
When asked if Eric also happened so fast, she responded
”Our friendship didn’t happen to fast but me catching feelings happened too fast.”
Asked if she felt like she was the one who ”pursued” things between them, she responded
I mean I just wanted to be his friend because at some point, I don’t know if you guys saw the conversation between me and him, I was literally telling him that oh Erica is like his babe and I am his sister and he turned it the other way like Erica is his twin and I am the babe he wants.
All those things got me confused, got in my head”
When Ebuka asked her why she returned to Eric’s arm shortly after informing Big Brother that he is a distraction and will start withdrawing from him, she responded.
”That’s the thing. When I am by myself I think but once he is just there, it’s like my senses are all gone. I don’t know what he says or maybe me just being next to him. When I am by myself I think and I am like what am I doing? That is why I had to tell Big Brother because it really got to me. Sometimes I would even tell him that I am f **ked and he would always laugh about it. I felt like he knew and he just took advantage of the fact that I was weak towards him being sweet, being my cuddle buddy and all that.’
I am also happy I left the house because I was getting out of my control”
Asked if she regrets the relationship with Eric, Lilo said ”Not regret but like yea, I f**ked up”
She said she wouldn’t be surprised if Eric moves on with another girl in the house.
”No, because he is a guy but I would be disappointed considering the fact that he said it so many times that he is not attracted to anybody else in the house and that they are not his type.
Those were the things I used against him, like Go and talk with someone else and he would always say I like your vibes and you are the one person I connect with.
I felt like I was so into his words that I didn’t even notice like I wasn’t doing my own thing”
