Christine's Family Disappointed With Her Affection For Cody

Big Brother 16 Christine and Cody Showmance
Christine says it's strategy, but we're not buying it.


On last night's Big Brother 16 Julie Chen showed the houseguests video clips & messages from their families. Christine's ended up being all about her husband Tim ...  and her flirtmance with Cody.

It seems that BB16 fans aren't the only ones who think Christine and Cody's relationship is inappropriate, Tim and Christine's family both think it's a little weird.

Julie Chen kicked it off with the following introduction:

"Christine and Cody's relationship may seem innocent enough to them, BUT, what do Christine's husband and family think of this Big Brother flirtmance?"

Flashback to Christine, Victoria and Frankie talking about Christine's rings, mostly her wedding ring. Frankie tells her, "You just don't look like a married woman." Christine laughs and replies, "I know, I know. I don't act like one, either."

Then it's time to meet the families.

Tim is first. He talks about how he and Christine have been married for 2 1/2 years but have known each other since they were 12.

The Big Brother 16 cameras also captured Christine and Tim's families watching an episode of BB16. Christine's brother comments, "Christine is always playing with his (Cody's) hair; they're always touching each other."

Christine's mom and dad don't exactly look pleased as they witness their married daughter flirting with Cody:

Tim agrees. "Watching Christine on the show ... it's the most surreal thing I've ever experienced. There are things that I would personally change," he gulps loudly. "The hair-pettings ... whatever, the arm ticklings  ... whatever, I think it's the hand holding that I'm like, um, unlatch from each other real quick."

Christine and Cody's showmance spotlighted on Thursday's BB16 episode.

"Christine's realtionship with Cody I do think is a little odd. Personally I do think a couple of boundaries have been crossed. Cody is a very good looking guy, but I am also a fairly attractive fellow..."

Christine's mom, Debbie, is also unhappy with her daughter's behavior. "I do not like Christine flirting with Cody ... at all. I'm not happy. I think she's getting too close, and she's married, and it's not right.I feel like I raised her different."

"Half of me wants her to win ... half of me kinda wants her out ... away from Cody." - Christine's mom.

The footage returns to Tim and the families. Tim says he and Christine sort of agreed on her doing what she had to to win, but "at the same time, they could throw a little respect my way. They don't have to be doing that for strategy."

Christine's dad also speaks out.

"I'm not liking what I'm seeing there. I understand the game, but it's just uncomfortable as a father to watch."

Meanwhile, Cody's family defended him saying their Italian family is very "touchy feely." Cody's sister agrees with Christine's family though. "I say personally, back off a little bit."

The segment ends with Tim saying he will support his wife at the Big Brother 16 finale, but when they are alone for the first time he will tell her how it affected him and how he would have liked to see her "do other things."

Do you think Christine's behavior in the Big Brother house is unacceptable, or is 'all fair' in the BB house?
