Recounting the dramatic explosion that led to her disqualification, Erica revealed how intoxication coupled with cumulated mental stress pushed her over the edge.
“When I saw the video, I was shocked. It was alcohol, but then there were other times I have had alcohol and that didn’t happen, so it was more than that. Let’s just say alcohol and mental stress.”
Asked what led to the accumulated mental stress, Erica said:, “I felt like I only had one friend. I was only getting positive energy from that one friend.”
The well-loved reality show puts the focus on a set of people for 90 days, and while fans enjoy the spectacle on TV, housemates are under pressure 24/7 to deliver. “It takes a toll on you,” Erica said.
