The Reality of Raven by Mell


Raven has been a big topic with the majority of the house lately. The hg’s are tired of the shrieking, childish behavior, her need to be the center of attention and constantly wanting to one-up everyone. She actually unzipped her pants practically to her vajayjay recently to show them a scar simply because Christmas had her foot exposed for the first time and the hg’s saw her injury. Not only are they out of patience with her, they’ve started to vocalize opinions about her that they haven’t been comfortable sharing before because nobody wants to be the bad guy. (at least in this situation, they’ve actually been fighting over who gets to be the bad guy most of the season)  It was nice to see CBS show a segment of some of Ravens outlandish comments but we wouldn’t want some of the others to be forgotten. I’ve put together a list of information Raven has shared with the houseguests this summer. I’m sure it isn’t a complete list because I don’t transcribe everything she says. Can you believe someone on the production staff actually has to do that job? (I bet they’re spending the end of September in therapy or with a whole lot of liquor!)

She’s made a lot of ridiculous comments and told lies about the other houseguests. There may be a bit of that on the list but I tried to stay away from those things because it’s Big Brother and making up lies about each other is part of the game. I didn’t bother with things like lying about pouring out the coke, hiding the cat ears or slut shaming Jessica. I’m not listing how she said that she and Paul have made the most game moves this summer or her discussion with Matt about no one in the house realizing how hard they’re playing the game. Let’s look at this list more as “announcements” Raven has made. I wrote a story about Raven earlier this season and thought I may take a little heat for it for picking on the sick girl. It didn’t happen because it turns out, fans who can’t agree about Paul, seem to come together and agree about Raven. Here is a list of some of Ravens “announcements.”

  • Raven has two diseases and they are terminal.
  • One of her diseases doesn’t have a name and only one other family in Sweden has it too.
  • Raven almost didn’t come to BB because her mom is dying, having surgery and at the end of her life.

  • She has arthritis in her hips, legs, arms, back and knees.
  • She has endometriosis and she says that means her organs have a rash.
  • She’s had several concussions.
  • When she cut her toe they thought she may have had a concussion because she hurt her elbow, her butt and her head.
  • She was stabbed with scissors while taking out the trash and a friend of hers gave her 11 stitches at home.

  • She vomits 14 times a day.
  • Her grandparents sold everything they owned to pay for her mother’s surgeries years ago.
  • Cameron, Cody, and Josh have all looked at her in a way that makes her uncomfortable.
  • She can’t bear to be around violence due to her past experiences.
  • Cody ended their relationship when he found out she couldn’t have children.
  • Raven has a phobia of the stairs going to the HOH ever since she cut her toe and it’s similar to PTSD.
  • She can’t help with the rat trap because it will turn off her pacemaker.
  • She’s worried when she gets out of the house she may not have her car anymore if her mom wasn’t able to keep up on the payments.

  • She is 200K in debt for medical bills.
  • Raven has a very hard time gaining weight.
  • Her hair will turn white in 3 years.
  • BB said she should use a large trash bag for showering.  (she only did it the day before her stitches were removed.)
  • She is 250K in debt.
  • Some people with GP can cure theirs with a good healthy diet but since she has the most severe kind, she can’t.
  • Raven can’t eat very much food and that’s why she can’t gain weight.
  • Ravens medicine helps with her nausea but she didn’t bring enough with her for the summer.
  • Her mom’s kidneys are located in the wrong place in her body.
  • It was very expensive for Raven to get her medication before coming to BB because she had to get three months worth in advance.
  • Raven can’t eat chicken. (maybe her chicken parm doesn’t count)
  • She spent 2 Days in the hospital after getting food poisoning from eating a CHICKEN quesadilla at Outback.
  • Raven gets held up for hours every time she’s at the airport because they think she’s a terrorist.
  • Raven will die if she eats steak.
  • If an iPhone is near her stomach it will stop her pacemaker.
  • Raven has an inverted spine.
  • Raven won’t die if she eats steak but she will scream in pain for hours.
  • Raven’s pacemaker will explode if she goes below 10 ft in water.
  • Raven and her mother both had their colons removed.
  • Every month when Raven has cramps she has to go to the hospital for 2 days.
  • Raven had an epidural put in backward during a procedure and was awake for the surgery. (If she was awake why didn’t she just say “yo, I’m still awake.”)
  • The doctor’s accidentally left large gaping holes in her after one surgery and she could see her organs.
  • Raven can’t drink milk or have dairy products.
  • Her organs, muscles, and nerves are dying in her body.
  • Raven’s muscles deteriorate every year.
  • Raven’s grandparents sold everything they owned to pay her doctor bills.
  • Raven thinks it’s disgusting for anyone to have sex in the Big Brother house.
  • Raven is sure her Zing from Zingbot was because her mascara runs when she plays in competitions.
  • She used to live with her boyfriend who had a rare disease and he could have died at any time.
  • Raven said when Matt tickled her, he almost made her have a seizure.
  • Raven speaks Arabic.
  • Raven’s mom speaks 5 languages.
  • Raven can’t eat at a buffet because if the food has sat out very long, she can’t handle the bacteria because of her disease.
  • Raven has ulcers.
  • Raven can’t eat the Shepherds pie Alex made since it has ground beef so she eats the ground beef tacos she makes instead.
  • She has rough knee syndrome.
  • Raven’s bones are deteriorating.
  • She has one ovary smaller than the other.
  • She has no cartilage in her knee.
  • When Raven has dance competitions, she only gets 6-8 hours of sleep total over 3 days.

Since being in the house, Raven has injured her hand with Josh’s frying pan while being several feet from it, burned her chest, burned her head, hurt her knee multiple times, chipped her tooth, cut her finger multiple times, hurt her finger opening a loaf of bread, hurt her toe multiple times, has a swollen knee after a competition and has announced she has salmonella in her finger. My best guess from observation is that Raven consumes anywhere from 5,000-6000 calories per day but Raven says she can’t eat very much due to her nutritional issues. I’m sure by the time the season ends and even before this post gets published, there will be many more “announcements.”

    Is that all that is wrong with her, LOL! Great summary….

  3. Jenny

    I thought the CBS show was hilarious. Raven finally got some screen time and for all the wrong reasons. I wish they’d do a montage of all the different accents she uses.

    I think my favorite declaration is the inverted spine. Is that even a thing???

    Great job, Mell!

    Great job Mell….Hilarious !!!!!!!!!!

    Oh Mell,
    I don’t get the feeds so I didn’t realize how long this list was. Each one is more absurd than the last. How is she ever going to be able to show her face in public when this is all done? Can you imagine the questions during the small press junket after the finale?

  6. Renee

    If she doesn’t already have insurance, she will never get it after this. Just imagine her trying to fill out the portion about any pre-existing conditions.

    Thanks, I needed a good laugh

    I’m surprised she’s not going to have to live in a plastic bubble lol

    Why is Jason even talking to her here?


  10. LynnD

    I just about pee’d myself reading this. She has pretty much covered every aspect of her body except for maybe random face parts. LMAO Glad I’m not the only one sitting around scratching my head at her stupidity. With that list she should have died the 1st week in the house.

    It makes a great drinking game. Take a drink for every time she mentions an ailment.

    I’m sorry but since this is the Raven thread, I just had to re-post….

    Where are they now:

    Raven Walton – After successfully surviving BB19, Raven returned to Devalls Bluff where she continued her career as a dance teacher. Bravo channel approached her as the new Dance Mom’s series teacher. During filming, Abby fresh from her stint in Federal Prison had an altercation with Raven on the set. Abby punched Raven in the stomach which shattered her GP pacemaker. In a bizarre series of events at the hospital, it was revealed that the GP pacemaker was actually a box of Mike and Ike’s that she implanted herself, thus solving the mystery of her sounding like a set of maracas when she danced. Abby busted on a parole violation was returned to Federal Prison. A few years later Raven was busted on tax fraud as well. Seems she was turned in by two of the Dance Mom’s because she allegedly had affairs with both mom’s husbands and every other male over the age of 16 within those families.

    Raven is currently serving 5-10 for tax evasion and by some weird twist of fate is the cell mate of Abby. It was determined that the box of Mike and Ike’s was slowly leaching into her system, causing the psychosomatic symptoms all these years. She currently is doing well, gained 200 pounds and is Abby’s bitch…

    Can we just put the skank out of her misery?

    • AIO_7

      Tell Cowpoke that……but the thing is, if the noms stay the same, the talk is to get Matt out. So we would be stuck with her even longer.

      • Avatar

        If Matt goes, she will bitch, moan, and whine her way to the top of the list for the following week.

      • LynnD

        Yes, but it would make for such great feeds watching her have a melt down.

        I hope she doesn’t have a disease that causes her skin to rash or make-up to run if she gets too upset?

    “Raven and her mother both had their colons removed.” That explains all the shit coming out of her mouth. It’s gotta go somewhere….

    I don’t fault the mascara, I’d run from her too!

    Getting your head banged against the headboard doesn’t count…

    A good sign, the morning walk.

    They are bitching about the comp where the house gets torn up. I’ve always hated that comp. They should do away with that along with slop.

    My hope is that seeing that Jason has a hard time keeping his mouth shut, that it will result in the house finding out about Paul. 🙂

    “Raven has two diseases and they are terminal.”

    This explains her still breathing air meant for someone else. If we use the two negatives multiplied = a positive

    (-GP) (-unnamed disease) = A positively batshit crazy cum dumpster

    and I’m spent…….

    I see someone stopped by to say hello…lol! I do appreciate the thumbs down on every post… Gee, I wonder who it could be…

    By the way, isn’t the whole point of an epidural that you’re SUPPOSED to be awake during the procedure?? Like, for instance, when it’s given to women who are in labor (who obviously need to be awake to give birth)?

  29. kneeless

    Unless I misread, I don’t remember reading about chipping her tooth while in the BB house. If my memory serves me, she was extremely upset because her teeth were the only things she had that weren’t bad.

    • feltso gudinya

      to tell u the truth i couldn’t make it through the list….i don’t find it funny…i find it sad..she is extremely damaged…..her mother should be jailed for child abuse..ravenous will never live long enough for the years of therapy required…….

    • Sassy

      She chipped it in the bathroom while talking about that being the only thing left that was undamaged.

      Feltso – I agree her mother has really messed her up and she is going to need years of therapy, but it’s possible to recover from this. I do hope, after the show, she gets some help.

  30. Quwana

    Ctfu Mell you have me in here crying with this list…I mean I had to read it ten times This woman is a pathological liar…what the hell is wrong with her????….like really Raven your grandparents sold all they own TWICE to pay for yours and your mother’s medical bill but you still owe????How much was y’all’s bills???? you can’t eat steak or chicken but YOU ATE THEM???? you don’t have a car but you hope your moms kept up your car payments???? FOR WHAT CAR???? LOL?? At what age did you get diagnosed?? 14 15 16 17 18 or never?? lol I would say my ex was a big liar but gurrrrrl you got him beat lol…ughhhh lol I can’t with her and I can’t with this season of Big Brother….smh but good read and very very funny lol

  31. kneeless

    How absurd is she! While this made me laugh I also thought how sad. And the worst part is I think she truly believes everything she has said & would probably defend each point Mell highlighted. She certainly is an attention whore.

  32. Melinda Beans

    I got to the Will part and had to stop. I am a paralegal that specializes in estate planning. You have to be 18 to even HAVE a Will. Having a Will at 14 isn’t even legal.

    Okay, off to read the rest of it…

    Hi everyone. Not to change the convo but can anyone tell me why Raven threw cinnamon on Matt. I’m catching up on last nights BBAD and they started the episode at the end Of the confrontation. By the way, I’ve always really liked ravens (the bird) but RavenSTFU is ruining it for me.

  36. Tinkerbell

    Wow, Steve. I thought you were going to run out of space. Ahaha. Spectacular!

    Borrowing from Miss Munchausen USA……”Baby Girl”, you ARE the Poster Person. You wear it so proudly. Way to go, Baby Girl.


  39. Jenny

    Possible warning signs of Munchausen syndrome include:
    •Dramatic but inconsistent medical history
    •Unclear symptoms that are not controllable and that become more severe or change once treatment has begun
    •Predictable relapses following improvement in the condition
    •Extensive knowledge of hospitals and/or medical terminology, as well as the textbook descriptions of illnesses
    •Presence of multiple surgical scars
    •Appearance of new or additional symptoms following negative test results
    •Presence of symptoms only when the patient is with others or being observed
    •Willingness or eagerness to have medical tests, operations, or other procedures
    •History of seeking treatment at numerous hospitals, clinics, and doctors offices, possibly even in different cities

    Ok this is my first season…do they have a live finale where they talk to everyone and ask them questions like on survivor? Please tell me they do so we can see her flounder over this stuff!

    This is FANTASTIC! Nice work! 🙂

    My favorites from this line up are as follows:
    • Raven has an inverted spine. (No STFUR, you do not have an inverted spine, geezzz, look this shit up would you.)
    • She’s had several concussions. (Ah, duuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh).
    • Raven and her mother both had their colons removed. (where is the f’ing colostomy bag?)
    • Raven had an epidural put in backward during a procedure and was awake for the surgery. (If she was awake why didn’t she just say “yo, I’m still awake.”) An Epidural, let alone “backwards”, no, being awake, duhhhhhhhhhh)
    • The doctor’s accidentally left large gaping holes in her after one surgery and she could see her organs. (Accidentally left a large gaping hole and you could see your organs? What an out of body experience? This is very funny.

  43. Avatar

    I have to agree with one of Feltso’s posts earlier. At first, I thought the list was humorous, but as I continued to read it, I realized how very sad it is. This woman needs help. Her attention seeking is pathological.

    As I read, I realized that she has no control over the lies that come out of her mouth. Exhibit A: she can’t eat beef, chicken or dairy. Even as she says that, she is eating those items in front of the very people she is telling. That tells me that she can’t control her lies because she can’t even see how transparent her lies are to everyone watching. most people go out on their way to support their lies. Not Raven and that is concerning to me. There are countless examples like this one.

    I also started thinking that an angry mob, wielding pitchforks and torches, is probably going to show up at Raven’s house right after the season demanding to be repaid for what has likely been years of fundraising events that were really cons. I can’t help but wonder now if a fear of being found out is why her mother was working overtime (and was so antagonistic and anxious about supporting Raven’s claims of being terminal) to confront anyone who questioned the veracity of Raven’s gastroparesis or any of her other ailments. I am completely serious. plus, I wonder if, her mother actually has her believing some of this. It did start when Raven was young and within her mother’s control.

    Then, it dawned on me …. and I’m not trying to be funny …. Matt is a complete idiot. He spends more time with her than anyone. He has to have heard these lies over and over, yet he STILL believes that Cody told her he couldn’t be with her because she can’t have children and he is willing to throw away his game (I use that term loosely here) to protect her so she can win. Certainly seems to me that he is buying what she’s selling 100%. Hence, he is an idiot. Frankly, the best thing that could happen to him is to be evicted so he can start getting deprogrammed in the jury house before he finds his pet rabbit boiling on his stove one day. I’m not kidding. And, while I wouldn’t accuse him of having much dignity, the only way he can salvage any is to get away from her because he looks like a total gullible joke and that will absolutely follow him out of the house.

    Raven is clearly deeply disturbed. I am going to make a concerted effort not to even mention her name (unless it is pertinent to the discussion about the game) let alone bash her anymore. That should tell you how twisted I think she is because it was fun to make jokes at her expense before. I figured “she gave us the fodder, so no harm, ho foul.” I no longer believe that. Now, I feel kind of guilty about it. I do wholeheartedly believe she is sick, just psychologically and not with the plethora of ailments she claims to have. Plus, if she’s just a con artist and not pathological, then I don’t want to contribute even in a small way to giving her any kind of platform.
