Perhaps one of the most scandalous things to come out of Big Brother 16 is the flirtation between contestants Christine Brecht and Cody Calafiore. While it might come across as adorable and sweet, there’s one big problem: Christine is married! What does host Julie Chen think about the whole ordeal? Read on to find out!


“Christine’s husband has every right to be upset,” Julie told Entertainment Weekly when asked about the controversial showmance. “In fact, he wasn’t upset enough. All I know is if I ever did what Christine did then I would be coming home to no husband at all!!! Then again Christine is a free spirit and he knew who he married in the first place.”

Last week’s live elimination episode delved into this issue and even went to Christine’s home to interview husband, Timothy, about the goings on between his wife and Cody. Long story short: He wasn’t happy at all with what’s happening for all the world to see, but he wasn’t exactly raging about it either. Clearly Julie thinks there’s a bigger problem here than Christine’s husband does, or he was just playing calm for the cameras.

Julie and Timothy aren't the only ones weighing in on the pair's chemistry. Kathy Griffin and Zingbot 3000 showed up earlier this season and joked about Christine and Cody’s constant flirting. The lovable robot joked that Cody hadn’t made many enemies in the Big Brother house — but that Christine’s husband wasn’t a fan. Low blow, but right on.

We’re ready for the finale when Christine and her hubby come face-to-face once more. We have a sneaking suspicion that it’ll be awkward between these two and even more awkward between Timothy and Cody. Grab some popcorn and prepare yourself!
