Truth be told, I didn’t pay much attention to Big Brother’s new eco-friendly “wallpaper” or Pacific Rim-inspired decor in the kitchen because I was too busy getting all giddy over Julie Chen’s expanding tummy. In case you hadn’t heard: the Chenbot’s with child, dawgs! Though I’m not sure I would have selected the billowy, custard-colored blouse for such a youthful hostess with the mostest, it wouldn’t be another season of Big Brother if we didn’t obsess over the Chenbot’s eclectic wardrobe. So bring on the (glittery) collections from A Pea in the Pod, I say!

That said, I’m kind of digging the new San Quentin-inspired bedroom and the debut of a bay window in the head of household’s retreat. While I could give a freakin’ kilowatt about the new solar-powered lights in the backyard, the threat of a cold water-only shower might send a chill down a spine or two when BB11 kicks off July 9. What do you think of the new digs?
