Natalie Eva Marie (‘Celebrity Big Brother’) exit interview: ‘You can’t believe anything Tom says’ and ‘Lolo needs to win!’

Friday night during a special double eviction episode of “Celebrity Big Brother,” Natalie Eva Marie was the first houseguest sent packing, leaving just six houseguests remaining: Tamar Braxton, Kandi Burruss, Tom Green, Lolo Jones, Dina Lohan and Ricky Williams. Natalie received a thunderous applause from the live audience as she walked out to meet host Julie Chen Moonves, hoping she’d be sent back inside as a surprise twist. “Wishful thinking,” says the former professional wrestler.

Upon exiting, Natalie made it clear that she is still rooting for her bedroom alliance. “Ricky, Lolo or Tamar,” Natalie responds when asked who she hopes will win. Julie, who thought Lolo was Natalie’s ride-or-die, seemed confused that Natalie wasn’t more direct with her answer. “Yes, Lolo needs to win for sure,” Natalie concedes when pressured.

Despite Tom telling Natalie earlier this week that she was safe, the model isn’t surprised she found herself booted from the game. “You can’t really believe anything Tom says,” she explains. “I had the opportunity to win and I didn’t. I should have won the Veto and I wouldn’t be sitting next to you, Julie.”

Earlier in the season Natalie and Lolo had formed a four-way alliance with Kato Kaelin and Tom, but things went south after Natalie won a Veto competition and didn’t allow Tom to backdoor Ricky. “I wouldn’t say I chose to side with Ricky, but I didn’t feel comfortable,” Natalie explains. “Within 24 hours Tom wanted a team member we just brought in to be evicted. If we were truly a team like he said … they’re gonna rock with me because it’s a team decision. But clearly it showed their true colors. The moment I didn’t use that Veto it was like World War 3 in the house. Tom and Kato literally unraveled.”
