3. Abi-Maria said she wanted to work because of the similarities between you both. What do you have in
Shirin: "Abi and I have absolutely nothing in common, except for the fact that maybe she got emotional the first time around and I got emotional in my first season.
But, what caused those emotions was totally different. What caused mine was [that] I was viciously attacked by a number of people on my cast when I was just there having a good time and not doing a whole lot to deserve those personal attacks. Abi on her season, was the one lashing out on people and personally attacking them... she gets emotional and crazy in a different way.
You’re not even seeing a fraction of what it’s like to live with her. We landed on the beach and she started telling me about Peih-Gee Law being evil because her gut tells her so, she thought Kelly reminded her of Denise Stapley from her season, and she hated Denise, and Terry Deitz reminded her of Michael Skupin and she hated him... she would create these associations with people from her past and use that as a fictional excuse to attack people."
