Verónica Montes talks about what happened in La Casa de los Famosos

On Monday, November 1, 2021, Verónica Montes became the tenth eliminated from La Casa de los Famosos, after the public vote.
In La Casa de los Famosos, 16 celebrities among actors, singers, athletes and other public figures were isolated in the same place, where there is no internet, radio, television or privacy, as the cameras follow the contestants 24 hours a day , seven days a week. Alicia Machado was the winner of this show taking the grand prize.
Verónica Montes Casa de los Famosos: Have you gotten used to this reality a bit after being locked up for so many weeks. You still don’t feel like the cameras are recording you?
“Look, it took me like two whole weeks, two weeks like remembering the microphone that we had here. How could they be listening to me? If it took me two weeks. Right now I am happy to be outside. I am right now in Miami with my family. I am very happy to have gone out ”.
“The truth is that inside there is a totally different world. I think the only ones who can share information or talk about it are the sixteen members who were there, or the people who were on a reality show like that. And yes, it was complicated, but I think I think it was a unique experience ”.
Verónica Montes Casa de los Famosos: Was it really very heavy to be inside? Wouldn’t you go back in if you were invited to the House of the Famous 2?
“No, well, I can’t say no, never, because that’s where you feel like it, really. Yes, I was in other reality shows like “Look who dances”, that is, dancing, modeling. In other words, totally different things where you didn’t live locked up. Then you would go home, you had your cell phone. This one is completely different, they lock you up, they take your cell phone, they take away your connections with the whole outside world, you don’t see anyone other than the sixteen members. I think it was a unique experience. As I told you, it was a very difficult experience for me, I think for my colleagues too, where perhaps you start in a way, as I was saying, I would smile. I am a very happy person and afterwards they already saw me upset every day because the confinement already makes you and the fights that there are, the fights are silly, but they seem to be ”.
“They seem like they were huge in there, because everything goes to the extreme, then, obviously. Well, if I got upset, irritable, I think that all happened to us. Anything was an immense fight and I don’t know, one can never say never, but the truth is, no, I would not like it, but I would like to repeat or last only a month or so many I do not have, because the first month it was incredible to sit in the table with all my companions, eat together, have breakfast together, have dinner. I loved it. I had a great time washing dishes with my colleagues, cooking the egg. They all laughed. In other words, the truth is that there was. There were incredible moments, as well as very ugly moments ”.
Verónica Montes Casa de los Famosos: Somehow you were one of the most punished for some decisions. Do you think those kinds of feelings were taken too personal?
“No, if I commented and talked to him and from the first day and there are videos where he says that I am talking to someone outside. Very clear, I did not have a boyfriend, I entered single, but I did say that I am talking to a person outside that this time is going to decide whether we want to be or we do not want to be ”.
“I told him that very clearly, he knows it perfectly, he knew it and the fact that if people I think he took it very personally because they watched us 24/7, although not all the videos were seen. Not everything that happened in the house was visible, even 24/7. The fact of not saving Jorge if they attacked me a lot and I felt it inside. In other words, with the people inside they started attacking me, I understand it, now I understand it perfectly ”.
Verónica Montes Casa de los Famosos: Well, one of them was maybe Jorge Aravena’s
“But in that position I think I was the only one to be in that position. And it wasn’t easy at all. It wasn’t easy at all, I think, to be saving someone. Where do you put the career at stake for a person who does or does not come out. It was complicated. I do say that I should have saved Jorge, yes now, after so much thinking about it, after so much analyzing it, but already inside what was felt inside was totally different from what is outside here ”.
“It was not easy at all and the fact that he had everyone on top of him seeing who he was going to save. Two days, a day and a half to think. It wasn’t, it wasn’t easy. The stress that you have inside, plus that on top, plus the challenges that we had on top. I don’t think it’s easy at all to be in there and think of a thousand things you have to do in there. No, they don’t help ”.
How is your relationship with Jorge?
“Besides, as I told you, it is my first reality show and I think I made many mistakes, but you learn from mistakes and that is why I apologized to people, I apologized to my colleagues, I apologized to Jorge and I learned many things in this reality show . You know that if I go back to a reality show because you never say I would never do things differently, from the beginning, I think ”.
“If we talk to each other, we are fine, we have clarified the points. There were many doubts, as on his part, as on my part. There were misunderstandings. To see the edited videos, sometimes many misunderstandings and I explained to him or I asked him and he explained to me then we are super good, really. If we talk to each other, right now I’m in Miami, he’s in Mexico, but yes ”. Filed Under: Verónica Montes House of the Famous
What happened to Alicia Machado at the end, did you take the drops?
“In fact, I had a prescription, because after what happened to my health, I couldn’t sleep well. And then in the show I told my doctor, I think it will be worse to sleep there with so many people that I do not know, I want to take them just in case and my doctor gave me the prescription to take them with me because of the stress I may have and not sleep and then you need to sleep. I didn’t use them at the beginning of the show, nobody knew I had them. ”
“And at the seventh, eighth week I started to use them, when they saw that I put the drops on me, Alicia asked me with her consent. I told him Take the closed bottle, I gave it to him. She spilled her droplets and gave it back to me, Pablo too. I never put them anywhere. I am not capable of that. I would never do anything without volunteering. In other words, if they do it, they want to do it, they would never do that ”. Filed Under: Verónica Montes House of the Famous
Talk about their sleeping drops
“I don’t understand how this thing started, but I wanted to clarify it. And Alicia knows perfectly and Pablo knows perfectly. Alicia did it once because she borrowed them from me once and Pablo went several times until I finished it. I finish my drops, but he would grab it from my medicine bag, he would grab it. I mean, it’s not that I put it on him somewhere, no, he would grab it and take it away. In fact, sometimes he would take him to the leader’s room because he was there with Gigi and I would not sleep because he would take them ”.
“That’s what happened, nothing was unintentional. They wanted to rest and they were very stressed. At that time we had already been locked up for seven or eight weeks, it was already a lot of stress and seven or eight weeks in there is like seven or eight months. That is what people do not know. I feel like I was locked up there for almost a year or two years, because days go by very slowly ”. Filed Under: Verónica Montes House of the Famous
They were talking about that occasion in which they took Alicia’s drops, because it was a video where you and Gabi were talking face to face.
“The truth is that Alicia slept a lot, but there are days when she couldn’t sleep like everyone else and I think she slept more because of the drops obviously, but it was because she asked me and she put them on and that’s it. He actually asked me how many drops you would make yourself. And I, personal I wear so many, but I don’t know, I think I had like. In other words, put on a few because I am not able to say it and I am not a doctor, I am not able to tell him hey, take so many. No, never, everything was under her consent, she did it alone, I would never do those things. ”
They also said that I stole the Oreo cookies. It is that they are things that they say and they do not know that the only thing that I asked in the supermarket on Saturdays that we ordered was the Oreo for me. Everyone in the house knew that I asked for Oreo because I needed it. I wanted sugar, I wanted a cookie, I wanted something that we didn’t have within reach. So that was the only thing I asked for and they were mine. Then obviously I would arrive with my cookies, happy to teach him I think the video was Cristina, they were totally mine. I invited them and sometimes they disappeared from my drawer because someone grabbed them, because we were, uh, we didn’t have that scope to eat whatever you wanted ”.

Really, if that friendship was broken when you left, were you a little disappointed in Cristina?
“Look, I think what happened in the house stays in the house. Everyone has strategies, everyone makes mistakes, everyone makes mistakes. And I think that being, as I told you, in there, only we can say how strong it was to be in there, to live in there with unknown people, it can be. The truth hurt, yes, it hurt. I made mistakes, so I can’t blame what she did. ”
“She made her strategy, but I do think that she and I are hello, hello, how are you? How have you been? How was your operation? Because I asked him, because it is the health of another person and it worries me and that’s it. In other words, it is not that every day I send him a message, it is not that. I think that friendship is difficult and I got it now, that you have it out of that show ”. Filed Under: Verónica Montes House of the Famous
