After their big blow up earlier in the day yesterday, Sree just wouldn’t let it lie and, armed with new ally Karly, he decided to have a go at Marcus for being “disrespectful” to the women in the house.
Needless to say, Marcus wasn’t going to let that one go…
“When have I ever disrespected women in here?!
“You do it all the time, Marcus” said Karly. “You’re always at Sophie – ‘show us your tits, do this, do that’.”
“That’s a joke!” an exasperated Marcus replied.
“That’s disrespectful to women though” Karly replied.
“I can’t believe you say that!” said a shocked looking Marcus adding, “If you naturally get on with someone you’re alright. You listen to Siavash and Cairon and I just think ‘oh that is terrible’!”
Which makes no sense to me but seemingly Karly understood…
“So why do you do it to Sophie then? It’s not different at all” she said.
“I say about tits because I know Sophie’s sense of humour and I know she’s cool with it” replied Marcus, still not willing to back down.
“But she’s not though!” Karly insisted and Sree agreed, “She’s not though!”
Later on, without Sree around, Marcus cornered Karly which she clearly wasn’t too chuffed about.
“For him to say to me that I’m disrespectful to women was very insulting to me” Marcus told her.
Karly replied that, “Obviously the argument between you two is between you. It’s nothing to do with me and you.”
But the he-said-she-said wasn’t over yet…
Marcus told her, “The difference between me and him is that if I’m talking about something I’ll come straight to you, but he’ll go behind everyone’s back and try and influence your opinion. I mean how many times has he run to you – ‘oh Marcus is doing this again’? It’s every five minutes!”
“He doesn’t run to me” she said, but didn’t look entirely convinced about what she was saying.
“He don’t like it ‘cos Noirin don’t like him any more, and he’s blaming me for it” Marcus stated before they both went about their business.
What do you reckon? Is Marcus disrespectful to the women in the house or is it all just good natured banter?
