Angie Bowie FREAKS OUT Before Becoming The Third Celebrity Big Brother Housemate To Quit In Just Over A Week! Watch Her NSFW Exit!
After an emotional week, Angie Bowie has become the third Housemate to ask to leave Celebrity Big Brother this season.
The decision came about after the 66-year-old couldn't get any sleep on Monday night's episode and went totally "berserk"!
Angie was unable to sleep because of the lights and racket from her housemates on Day 14, so she charged to the diary room and told producers she wouldn't stay at the house "another minute," demanding:
"Get me a car, and let me get gone. If you wanna be cheap just get me an Uber."
Even though she's kept quiet on the subject, Angie is definitely in pain after learning that her ex-husband David Bowie passed away last week while she was in the house (which caused MAJOR confusion with Housemate Tiffany "New York" Pollard!)
While we're sad to see Angie go, we're glad she's getting out of that toxic environment in her state. The constant lack of sleep contestants get in the house is enough to make anyone go nuts!

David Bowie's Ex-Wife Breaks Down In Front Of The Celebrity Big Brother Cameras Following The News Of The Singer's Death
This is just so heartbreaking.
As we previously reported, David Bowie's ex-wife Angie Bowie is currently in the middle of filming season 17 of Celebrity Big Brother. Since she is isolated from the world while participating in the show, producers were forced to inform the former model of her former flame's lost battle to cancer.
However, it appears that the 66-year-old has opted to remain in the house despite her recent loss. In fact, she even opened up about the Space Oddity singer's death for the CBB cameras.
On Monday, U.K.'s Channel 5 aired a clip of Miz Bowie weeping, as she shared:
As the inevitable hocking of Whitney Houston's estate draws near, the singer had several pieces of memorabilia from classic films.
In particular, a
Back in 2004, Liza Minnelli's ex-chauffeur M'Hammed Soumayah filed a lawsuit against his former employer for sexual harassment and asking for $100 million. He claimed that years back when Liza was drunk she would beat him and demand he have sex with her.
According to Soumayah, Liza even went so far as to threaten to fire him from his lucrative job, so the married father of two eventually relented to stay employed.
After a long 10-year-battle, a deal was reached between both parties last month and is now finalized.
No word on how much money was paid out.
Liza settled another heated lawsuit back in 2007 with ex-husband David Gest and his abuse claims against her.
We love us some Liza, but it sounds like she's a terror to live with — and a horny one at that!

“The Michael Jackson I will remember was smart, articulate and made me laugh. His death was a huge shock but it brought back so many happy memories."
Such are thoughts of David Gest, the sexually ambiguous ex-husband of Liza Minnelli turned British reality TV "star". Like many of Michael's famous comrades, Gest has come out in support of his friend, revering the man he once knew and openly discussing the musician as he once knew him.
Their life-long friendship, starting in their young teens, resulted in Gest getting to know a side of Jackson rarely seen and reveals some interesting facts about the artist.
For example, Gest recalls that out of his magnificent body of work, Michael's favorite songs were Man In The Mirror and Heal The World. He also reveals that some of Michael's favorite contemporary artists were Beyonce, Eminem and Dr Dre,.
But his biggest reveal was the pairs shared passion for plastic surgery, beginning in the early 80s. While Gest grew out of the fascination, he explains that Michael did not, always insisting he could look better and falling prey to the sales pitches of a plastic surgeon.
“I begged him not to have any more, I said, ‘Your nose is perfect’, but the plastic surgeon we were using kept encouraging him to have more procedures. I believe he was just trying to keep the relationship going with Michael, but he wasn’t being honest with him. Even his family tried to say enough is enough. This guy made a fortune on my nose, Michael’s nose, Janet’s nose and La Toya’s nose. Tito and Jackie were smart, they left their noses alone.”
Gest also recalls the troubled relationship between Michael and his father, Joe Jackson:
“Michael was scared of Joe. Michael and I would take trips just to get away from him. Joe was always demanding but he wasn’t a bad man — he perhaps went about things the wrong way but what he truly wanted was more for his kids than he had. Joe eventually mellowed and Michael didn’t resent him like people think he did. Later in life, they got to know each other and made peace.”
But what Gest mostly remembers is a caring and giving man he was privileged enough to call his friend:
“There will never be another Michael Jackson — he was a musical innovator, a great dancer and you know what else? He was one hell of a friend."
