But Chen worries that Omarosa will refuse to be her controversial self, even though the Celebrity Big Brother host is quick to point out that CBS hasn’t muzzled her from discussing her former boss. “My theory is that she doesn't want to say too much because she wants people to buy her supposed book that she's working on,” says Chen. “I’m like, ‘Don't you want to tease something to the viewers?’ I'm hoping she does. And if she does and continues to, you're going to force every single news outlet in the country and maybe beyond to be monitoring the live feeds 24/7. If she says one thing at 2 a.m. that's a bombshell no one wants to get out-scooped on. If I worked at MSNBC, CNN or CBS News I would assign people just to trail her actions in the house and watch her. I would form an 'Omarosa Watch' if I was running a news division.” Chen also revealed which Celebrity Big Brother contestant got away. “Timing didn't work out for Boy George. I really wanted him and was proud of that pick,” says Chen. Boy George was banned from appearing on Celebrity Big Brother in Britain 2009 because he was on probation.
