Big Brother: Tully And Drew Are Splitsville
Observers of Tully and Drew’s Instagram accounts had noticed there were no lovey dovey selfies from Big Brother pair, so it is no surprise to hear the pair have now broken up.
Drew and Tully hooked up in dramatic circumstances on the show with Tully having a girlfriend on the outside who dumped her over the social media.
Tully tells OK Mag:
It is true you and Drew have split up?
We’re not together. It was a lot of pressure living in different states, and the regular couples’ issues seemed to be magnified being out of the house.
Who instigated the break-up?
Both of us. It was mutual. We both wanted it to work really badly and when it wasn’t, we’d get angry with ourselves and upset. It was sad. I felt like I’d risked so much for him; I’d lost a lot.
Was it a case of too much, too soon?
No, I think it’s a case of coming out of a reality TV show. Going in, you think about what it’s going to be like in the house − you don’t really think about the aftermath which, for me, has been a lot to swallow. Getting back into your own reality and catching up with friends who don’t really understand what’s just happened; you feel a bit lost figuring out where you’re going career-wise, and everyone thinks we’re rolling in cash but we’re actually all broke. Drew and I were both trying to deal with those issues at the same time and we were taking it out on each other.
So you were fighting a lot?
We were arguing a bit and we decided that we’d go away and get ourselves happy and healthy and then see. We’re still the best of friends; we talk three times a day on the phone.
When did all the fighting start?
You saw how much we bickered in the house − that’s just who we are as people. We’re both a bit dramatic and love an argument. It wasn’t as if we just started fighting. It was more that, unfortunately, outside issues were infiltrating into our relationship – money, career and reality. And the pressure from fans. That’s a lot
of pressure most couples don’t have to deal with.
Do you think you’ll work it out?
At the moment we are supporting each other. Maybe in a few months’ time we can give it another shot, but for the moment we’re just mates.
