I think she looks great, especially having survived cancer and ongoing family drama. I really wish she would DOR though

I think she looks good too. Don't we all want her to leave. I think she is the fakest or most two- faced person in that house.

I think she's a great looking woman and she's endured a lot but BB isn't her game. (at least I see little evidence of it so far) Maybe she'll get spurred on by this week's events and start to become more involved in the game.

I admire Kathy,

she is emotionally strong person, she is not dumb she had to know going in she would not be strongest, smartest. Add to that she is playing with people so young, some her son's age.
She has to know she can not out play this bunch on physical level or the "click" level or on her looks. The only chance she has is to do just what she is doing, for lack of better word, slide in like a snake and not rattle, not look dangerous. for everyone to think, "we can always get rid of Kathy she is nothing". til it was too late.
She has to be aware of the dismissive attitude that most of the guys and lot of the girls have for her. But make no mistake she is biting her tongue and fighting her emotions and her illness everyday, heck every min to give her son a future that she might not be around to give him.

There is so much more, but will shut up. just want to say;
She is one of the bravest woman I have ever seen. More than me. I don't have the fortitude that she does. She is fighting a battle that most have no clue about, won't give her credit for and where she will receive mostly derision and disdain if she succeeds. But she still does it for her son's future. I wish I were more like her.

Great post mim, I totally agree. You more than anyone are aware of what Kathy has gone through in her battle with cancer.

After everything Kathy has been through in life I think being in the BB house is her break from life. Kathy's not worried about a silly game, she made jury so it's gravy from here.

She has a son who will be 23 this year. I think that has something to do with how old she acts.

I don't think she looks 50 at all. The hair color and condition are aging but in the close ups to her face I think she looks very good for someone who has undergone chemotherapy, is on medication and is outside a lot. The severe bruising she continues to get are indicative of the type of medication she is on.

I can see why people don't like her game but I fail to understand the extreme dislike for her.

I admire anyone that can face challenges and keep on persevering.

For those who don't know anything about her here are a few examples:

Father deserted her family when she was 2
Got pregnant in high school and as there is not an alternative school just had to keep attending and tolerate the ridicule (and this was ca. 1987 in a conservative town)
Ovarian Cancer at 32 - so severe she was told to put her affairs in order
Survived and became a Deputy Sheriff and has risen to the rank of Sgt.
Raised a son alone
Earns 27k a year at a job that is dangerous, Miller county is very rural and drug and gun running hideouts are common
The meds she has to take can cause leukemia

So if she is terrible at the game, which I agree she is, it doesn't matter to me. I admire that she just gets up everyday and keeps on plugging.

I agree, great post.
She may not be a BB star but she's very admirable in her own way, and when they all sit around and make fun of her, it really makes me sick.

I agree, don't think the person with the most tragic story should win, real or lied about.
Part of BB is deception, Kathy is not doing anything anyone else is not doing, she is just not as cute, slick or funny at it as others. She is playing the deception, scheming part of game the best she can. She is more clumsy at it but I suspect that may be because she has not had as much practice.
If she goes to jury house next week I will be good.

I feel exactly the same way. It's not cool that she gets bashed in the house so much but I don't think she adds much to the game. It does feel like she might make it F4 or F3 though. sigh

She was one of my pre-show favorites. Oh boy I was wrong.

I can attest to the horror that is Ovarian cancer. My mom suffered through a very long, painful, crippling year and half before she passed away from this horrific disease. She was sixty-three years old. The survival rate for this particular cancer is not very high. That Kathy battled and survived is glorious in my opinion. This has nothing to do with the game for me. It does my heart good to know another mother is living to the fullest. Go, Kathy!

My mom died from that type of cancer as well- it was quick (4 months) and very brutal. I guess this keeps me admiring Kathy as well despite her BB skills, because most do not survive that particular type. I hope she stays healthy

RR, we have a bond. Hug wrap up in arms

Your word choice, "brutal" about sums up the ravages caused by this disease and the treatment. Six months before she died my mother didn't even know who I was, she thought I was her baby sister.

I liked Kathy at first, but when someone wins HOH, they have to put 2 people on the block. It seems like she forgets this is a game they all are playing.

I know she's been thru alot, and I'm sure the late nights get to her, but it seems like everytime I see her when she is talking with others, she is laying down. I'll be glad to see her go and I wish Kristen would have made it to the jury in Kathy's place. Kathy will vote on emotions rather than who is more deserving.

She wants to give her son a better life.. she feels with a higher education he may be able to get it. A young person on his/her own can't get an education without some sort of help. Long gone are the days when you could work your way though.
You can get loans, but then you owe your soul for 20 more years.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to try to send a kid to college while supporting yourself and having medical expenses on $27,000 a year. For the job she does? That is ridiculous. Maybe the cost of living there is really low or something, lets hope so.

Her and the majority of America are in the same boat. I "sold my soul" for my education... just finished paying off $70,000 last year. I guess I just don't have the profound empathy for Kathy that some others have. Life is hard for most. For me it's the smoking that make me less empathic regarding the cancer.

Kathy was awesome on the show last night! The look on her face as she threw that last ball was priceless. And her cheering when she won was even better than I imagined. lol I though Rachel was being dramatic but it did really seem like Kathy was happy that Rachel lost. Razz

And I think she looks so cute in that off-the-shoulder jean number she had on.
