Celebrity Big Brother 2012: Is Julian Clary cracking up? Boy George tells him to ‘stop the nice act’ and we think he might fancy The Situation!
Most of Julian Clary’s friends are complaining that he doesn’t seem like himself on Celebrity Big Brother.
Last night on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, his friend Cleo Rocos defended him saying he was “bored” and that in private he is the “nicest funniest man ever”.
Boy George took to Twitter, also defending his pal, tweeting:
“Come on Julian Clary and stop holding back!!”
He later added:
“Ooh Julian!! Better start quipping! No Julian! Stop the nice (ACT) and get on it!”
I must say, of all the things I expected Julian to be, I never expected the quiet bit. I had feared that his mental problems would get the better of him, but only after a little while.
I, as many others, had bet on him playing up his onstage camp personae for a bit, using this to get to know people – as he does onstage but as yet he hasn’t even tried.
Besides talking to Julie Goodyear and acting as Danica and Rhian’s makeup artist, he seems to have put up a wall between him and other contestants. He also seems to be a bad judge of character, pushing away a kind bloke like The Situation who wanted to be friends, while defending Danica, who said in the Diary Room she found him creepy. The same with the Prince, who tried to befriend him on several occasions but simply hit a wall.
It looks like Julian is afraid to interact with the men for some reason. His reaction to The Situation is bizarre, he says he dislikes him, finds him boring and dense, but he cannot stop talking about him, he seems obsessed by him – could Jules actually have a crush he is not aware of?
Had he actually talked to The Situation he might have been surprised by his love of all things gay and camp, how proud he is of his gay friends and his support of the LGTB.
The Sitch once said of his gay fans: “”I’ll be honest, I like the attention. I’m flattered if there are guys with different preferences that have crushes on me.”
He is starting to resemble Big Bang Theory’s Sheldon Cooper in his behaviour (and looks). He makes no effort to socialise, puts people down but is then “mortified” when nominated for eviction, not realising it’s his own fault.
He is starting to act a bit odd lately: on eviction night he kept picking the last bits of a chicken carcass for hours, putting the left over bits on a plate then just kept staring at it on and on. Yesterday he just blanked people when they talked to him and sat in the bedroom alone. It is no wonder Cheryl Fergison was keeping him on “suicide watch”, after he admitted that he was humiliated to be nominated in the second week. Strangely Julie thinks Julian is fine and doesn’t care, prove that she doesn’t look beyond the surface.
If he stays in hopefully Julian will get over his strange episode, let go of the Julie crutch and actually start to open up and enjoy the erm … situation.
