As for housemate and newfound nemesis Renee, I'm surprised she doesn't limp. I mean that chip on her shoulder must weigh like half a ton! Seriously, she needs to lighten up. First she accuses Carmen of being judgmental, and then, not 30 seconds later, she says, "That just tells me how to deal with you from now on until this project is over with." Yeah, good thing Renee isn't quick to judge. Renee showed more respect to that crazy-looking read more
