Big Brother Exclusive: The Valleys Star Carley Belmonte Gets Real About Her BFF Lateysha Grace
Writing for MTV, Carley says Lateysha is a bit lost at the minute...
Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud.
How true is this? To an extent I have to agree. Speaking from experience, it's very easy to be who you think people want you to be. Since the launch night of Big Brother 2016 everybody has been asking me about Lateysha. What is she really like? Does she love herself yeah? Is she really like that? Her boobs are too big, she's gained weight. People have no idea the implications these opinions have on young women.
Here's something that may surprise you! Lateysha's fun, loud and very out there - which of course everybody knows - and that girl belongs in front of a camera she's a pure entertainer.
BUT she can be very soft and and If she's given the chance to stay in the house she could have a very good chance of being crowned this year's Big Brother winner.
She's not just funny, she's absolute HILAR, and she really does have a kind heart when she lets you in - but also when you let her in. She has to trust you and if you stab her in the back she will never let it lie. Rightly so!
She's not a massive people's person, and I'm not sure how many of the girls she will click with in the house. I'm going to say this will take time.

She will 100000% come to blows with her bed mate. It won't be long before she's bedless again! I can already see it going off.
She's definitely a bit lost at the min and is still finding her feet, but in the mean time she has managed to take the wrong entrance, show ounces of side boob, reveal a nip slip, confess to almost sh*tting herself on the way in, fall so far out of the chair that the viewers almost got a close up of the "sheep " (well groomed I hope), confess to being a stripper and roll her eyes at any given advice.
Oh and she also believes in aliens.
Let me tell you one thing, when she was nominated, Teysh said it was ok - but was this a lie? GUILTY. She was tampin fumin ragin and I can guarantee you as soon as she gets the chance to return the favour she will do.
So then we come on to whole Beyoncé of The Valleys malarkey.
Fair play to the girl - she has the curves, the booty, the twerk and most importantly the, erm, voice. AWKS. I'll stay quiet about the singing voice - soz Teysh!
No but seriously she really doesn't love herself as much as she makes out. Granted she would rate herself 10/10, but that girl has confidence I could only dream of having. She's a sort and she's allowed.
My only advice for the house is that her three main emotions are hyper, tired and hungry, so if you don't see her bouncing around and she isn't snoring, then stick a sandwich in her mouth.
Back to confidence is silent, Lateysha refuses to sunbathe wearing a bikini and described herself as a walrus - but still she wears a smile very well. How many girls can confess to being that bikini body confident?
As for the rest of the housemates, I'm not a huge lover of anyone yet. It's still early days.
Marco Jnr. is like an empty picnic basket - it looks tempting but there's nothing inside. Then again, his missus must be just as tapped. A hall pass? Really babes?!
Alex is a gent and will restore many women's faith in men, but I've heard he's loved up - and what a woman he's chosen.
Ryan doing my t*ts in but I think I believe him over Sam. I'm not keen...
The twins clearly need some action as they got WAY too excited over an avocado - but now that Victoria has left and only Emma remains, it will be interesting to see what happens.
I'm so far loving The Others. Drama fueled and ready for a battle! It's a great twist this series. Rather anyone than me and my ex. Or ex BFF.
Big Brother continues on Channel 5 tonight at 10pm.
