"Celebrity Big Brother" Guilty by Reason of Insanity

After reading all about the racial firestorm surrounding "Celebrity Big Brother" across the pond in England, this reality TV obsessed blog had to check out the season for ourselves. In a word? Bananas! Besides the aforementioned feud between Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and reality TV star Jade Goody, who got the public-voted boot this evening, three celebrities have already walked off (or climbed out, in one case).

Film director Ken Russell bid buh-bye after Goody yelled at him for eating cheese and crackers. Old Australian pop singer Leo Sayer (most famous for "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing") broke through a fire door after "Big Brother" denied him underwear when he refused to clean his own. And punk rocker Donny Tourette climbed a wall to escape during a challenge. It's only Day 17! Why can't the American version of this show be this insane?!
