Ex BBNaija housemate, Offiong Edet Anthony known as Thin Tall Tony begun his media tour after being evicted from the big brother Naija house on Sunday. The ex housemate who is known for keeping his marital status far from his lips throughout his stay at the house as said he did not deny his family.
What’s more? His wife Laraba whom he’s been married to for 3 years, had welcomed him home and thanked all Thin Tall Tony’s fans for keeping him in the reality show for so long.
In an Interview with Beat 99.9fm Lagos, Thin Tall Tony when asked why he denied his wife and family at the Big Brother Naija house, he said he never denied his family but didn’t just talk about it.
“I kept it private because I didn’t tell anyone in the big brother house I was married. I made sure I slept on my bed every night and there were moments I looked at my children’s pictures.” He said.
On whether he had a conversation with his wife before going into the Big Brother Naija house, Tony said “Yes, myself and my wife made the decision before I went. She said we should keep our marriage private and put only myself out there and that’s what i did.”
“I have been watching Big Brother for 12 years now and I had to do that because I noticed a lot of married people don’t last in the game.” He added.
He also denied having intimacy with his fellow Big Brother housemate, Bisola. He said Bisola is just a friend he admires so much and he doesn’t and didn’t have any emotional attachment with her although the big brother fans felt he had led Bisola on in some ways.
Then the big question came, “Would you let your wife do the same thing even if you both had a discussion concerning it before she left?” “How would you feel if we kissed other men?” He answered saying he and his wife think alike meaning that wouldn’t have been a problem.
