|Monica of Big Brother 2 learns her cousin is missing after 9/11|
Under normal circumstances houseguests are never told about events in the outside world, but this was one exception for obvious reasons. Also, Monica's cousin was one of the people missing after the 9/11 attacks and Monica would be informed while in the Big Brother 2 house.
Monica was called into the Diary Room.
"Today there was a terrorist attack at the World Trade Centers, okay? The World Trade Centers were hit by some hijacked commercial airliners. They don't know who did this, people were evacuated, people did get out.
"It's kind of chaos in New York City, but we have been in contact with your family and with everybody's family in the house, but we wanted to tell you separately because we talked to your sister, and your niece, are fine...okay?
"She wanted you to know this news... because this happened, because you have a cousin who works at the World Trade Center, Tamatha, alright? She did go to work this morning, okay? The situation is, they are waiting to hear from Tamatha. It doesn't mean anything bad, okay? At this point, I just want you to know this..."
Will Kirby spoke of Monica and the 9/11 situation she was faced with. "Monica's attitude about this just reiterates how strong of a woman Monica is...I've never seen someone so calm in the face of something this big. I think it says a lot about her character."
