Next is Autumn. She and her boyfriend have decided to get married. If I cared, that would be nice. She then explains that she has a thyroid disorder called Graves Disease that caused her to gain weight right before she left for the show. I have to say, I myself have a minor thyroid disorder (not Graves Disease, just slightly lower than normal thyroid levels) and while I didn't have any weight issues, I learned that a screwed-up thyroid really affects your mood. I was all tired and depressed and emotional, and once I started taking medication to normalize my thyroid, I felt much better. Even though I was unemployed! My point? Autumn's crazy emotional reactions to everything that happened during her two weeks in the house might have had as much to do with this disorder as with the fact that she's a big whiny baby. Now, she's got the whole disease thing under control, she says, and she's trying to shape up -- not because of all the crap that Shannon put her through, but because she "wants to do it for herself." She's also cutting a record. The camera follows her to the recording studio, where she sings a song that includes the lyrics "tonight is my night to shake my thing." Whatever butters your toast.
Sheryl, on the other hand, is having a more difficult time. Since being evicted from the house, she's been diagnosed with breast cancer. The cameras follow Sheryl into the doctor's office, where he tells her that the cancer "is in multiple spots" in her breast and the best option, for her, is a mastectomy. She tells us that the hardest part about being diagnosed with cancer was having to break the news to her children. She sniffles. Back in the doctor's office, Sheryl PSAs that if you find a lump in your breast, you need to go to the doctor. And that's very good advice. Her doctor tells her that she has a good chance to beat this, since they found the cancer fairly early. Poor Sheryl. But she looks like she's in great shape, and she seems very optimistic, and God knows, that can only help her.
Julie tells the audience that Sheryl has scheduled her mastectomy for after the final vote, that she's feeling great, and that she's looking forward to coming back to finish up her stint on Big Brother.
Back to the Diary Room, where Will tells us that Monica is "a very powerful, very opinionated, outspoken, strong person. She's a good person in life and in this house." On the other hand, he feels that Nicole has "pulled the wool over some houseguests' eyes. She's done everything that [he's] done, but she's covered her tracks."
