Today Dick and Dani were talking about reading hate sights, and message boards, I really really hope someone sends them a link to this video, it's amazing. As much as Dick has done in this game, he deserves the prize in the end, and a healed relationship with his daughter.

Go Donatos!!!

OMG! That was so touching. They are winners all the way around for simply getting reconnected. I'm glad Nick got voted out so early... If he would have stayed they would have never become a real team. She would never have turned to her Dad with Nick in the house. Everything happens for a reason. Go Dick and Dani!!!!

I truly belive that nothing, NOTHING will change for them. Dicks been dancing and jumping through hoops this whole entire game and if it were down to Nick or her dad, Dick would of been a speed bump. If they were not winning i believe she would not even be talking to him now. She has noone else people are nice to her cuz they feel sorry for her and thats her game.

I hope they both look back and see how horrible they were to people while playing a game.And everything she complained about the fake people and the liars were all the things they were doing as well and even more so.

I also hope that she sees just how horrible she was to her dad and the things he did and said in the name of getting his daughter to even pay attention to him to love and respect him to get her money that will drive an even bigger wedge between them. If he wins he will want to control it, and if she wins she wont share it.

I would have given him mad respect had he not gone down the road he did.But still tried to get her love and respect. The fact it came so easy to the both of them is a sad statement of how they really are. I hope like Dick said they will get counceling.. its shame we will have to see the rest of this played out on some other show because we know these 2 are not done milking thier 15 mins of fame!

That being said the video it was nicely put together and who ever made it should be proud of their skills and all that went with that!! you be the mad editor:) I am sure you made many people happy with it and thats all that matters!

OMG. I was crying through this. People say these two had an advantage being there together. Very easy to say... harder to live by. I loved the quotes and the music and it's a great Tribute to both to keep on trying to find their way back fully.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I hope the Donatos find their way to this site where the level of hate is not as strong... even if many on here don't like them.

I have to replay and watch again.

PS. How could you take a few hours off to yourself and mom today (Sun) Carolyn. What nerve! (J/K)

I have no hope that Dani will continue the relationship with her dad outside the house after BB, unless he wins the half mil. She seems to only want Dick around when it benefits her. The ONLY time she is nice to him is when she wants something. Like when she was prodding Dick to be obnoxious to Zack & Jameka to throw off their game. And always is telling Dick what to say and how to say it when they are lying and making deals with other people. Dick has been there to do her dirty work.

In my opinion, she turned to her dad because she needed someone to use. If I had half a million dollars ;), I would bet it all on the fact that she is going to make no more effort outside the house to be his daughter, unless he ends up winning the half-million.

I truely hope that they are able to continue their relationship and work on it more after the show is over. Regardless of winning the money, they have both won something that money simply cannot buy. I wish the both of them much happiness and love with this.

Wow...this video was amazing and had me in tears. When Dani said that she was winning for the both of them, I wanted to reach through the TV screen and hug her! I truly wish them the best and hope that they continue to heal their relationship.

I know a lot of people have been critical of the fact that CBS put them in the house together, but I choose to see the positive of that...I see it as a door being opened for a father & daughter that desperately need each other. As crazy as that house has gotten this summer, anyone with a heart has to see the positive changes D&D have made in their relationship.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

And CBS is glad to announce the winner: Daniele.

Yep! this has been great entertainment.
CBS has decided to get in the healing business.
Freud Family Clinics Inc. will be open in all US major cities next month.

Great clip! Great propaganda!

I am a D&D supporter - hoping they get some peace in their real life as father & daughter.
It is clear that CBS and the American public want the smae for them.
We will all feel better if they get the big prize and we would have done "good", right?
This "fairy tale" ending has been planned for in the script.
Nobody can change the path of this runaway train.
Let's rejoice at our great generosity!
Vote massively for Daniele - Eric, the American player, our little manipulator, will oblige.
He will work the jury on our behalf.
CBS and the American people are "good people" - we help the down-trodden like the Donatos.

The art of giving: new book by CBS with Zach & Jameka as contribuing editors, will be launched in time for the Holiday Season.

Marketing is everything!

Get ready for BB9!

I believe Dani started out just using Dick but I think she is starting to realize he is there for her when she needs him to be and that they can have a genuine relationship. She has told him she loved him back and I don't think she would just say that. I hope their relationship continues to grow once they are out of the house and I wish them the best of luck. I hope they win...Dick 1st and Dani 2nd...because they have played the best game out of everyone in the house. Zach hasn't done anything til the end of the game therefore, he hasn't worked for the money. It should go to the ones who have earned it.

As a new parent, I am so touched by Dick's love for Daniele, and reminded of times that my parents would have basically laid down their lives for me. He loves her. He tried so hard! Not to mention that he tried to get evicted so that she would stay!

It is beautiful. And, just as I hope that Jess & Eric continue their relationship after the show, I sincerely hope for the same thing for the Donatos...

And, I agree with one of the first posts -- I'm glad that Nick was evicted so early so that D&D had good time to themselves.

I love how people say Dani will not work on their relationship once the show is over. Its all about money. You don't know that. I feel bad for people who think everything is a let down in life and people are just out for themselves. This is a father/daughter relationship that has had problems and the show for good or bad, has brought them together. We will never really know what has happened in their personal life's, but we have seen them grow together over the last 70 or so days. I could not be happy that these 2 are in the final 3 and hopefully in the final 2. I would give ANYTHING to have a father who wanted to be in my life as much as it looks he wants to be in her life. I think Dani and Dick will continue to work on their relationship outside of the house regardless of who wins. I wish them nothing but luck. This has been a great journey for them on the show and hopefully will repair any damage they once had. I cant wait to get home to watch the video. Thanks Carolyn.

It has been differant watching the two of them this week. It seems Dani is being more open, and possitive towards Dick. To see her jump in his arms after the first fast forward hoh comp after he won was sweet. I hope that they can all become a close family from all of this.....

Carolyn - I wanted to ask you first, do you know where I can find this video, is it on youtube? I actually want to post this on the CBS boards for all the Dick and Danni haters to show them how wrong they are, not that half of them would get it. I defiantly think everyone should see this video.

That was so awesome, I feel redundant using that word, but that was great to see. The water works defiantly came from watching that, and it was so great to hear Danni say that last night on the show, that now she is fighting for her and her dad. Someone should defiantly get this video to Vincent on Myspace so they can see this when they get out.

Thanks for sharing that video! I love the Donatos. I have been pullig for them from the beginning. I hope they bust Zach and make it to the final two. That will be the best big brother outcome I've ever seen! To all the Donato haters for turning on Eric and Jessica, I love Eric and Jessica just as much as the next but they did turn on the Donatos first. I know D&D wanted Eric out but that was because they thought he was betraying other people and casting hinky votes to blame on other people. They really were loyal to the group and everyone, i mean everyone turned on them. D&D deserve to win!!!

I dont like the Donato's much, but I have to give Dick credit for atleast trying to heal things between him and his daughter.

Major props to the maker of this tribute.

Had to come back on here so I could see everyone’s nice comments. I am not sure why I choose to subject myself to some of the CBS post and how negative and just flat out mean people can be.

So how would you send this assortment to CBS for them to possibly show on the last show hoping that it is Dick and Danni there, or to just show the Donatos.

Also there are so many posts on CBS saying that they have called CBS hundreds of times saying Dick should get a penalty vote, and someone posted that CBS stated that they were going to do something about it. I hope that is false, and the person is lying, or CBS was just telling them what they wanted to hear.

He will cry like a 3 year old. (:

That was an awesome video that someone took a lot of time putting together, thank you for sharing it with all of us who have sat this season & watched this relationship.

My relationship with my stepfather
(whom I refer to as my dad since my sperm donor walked out on my mom when she was pregnant with me) was not the best relationship. As I've gotten older I realize I was not a great "kid" and things could have been better from both of us.
He was not there for me emotionally, etc.

So watching Dick & Dani has brought up issues within myself that I thought were buried long ago. Even though they are there to play a "game"; I think Big Brother knew exactly what they were doing when they casts these two humans....They make the show.
Their storyline alone is like no other Big Brother "twist" and with Dick's personality to top it off, he's an extrovert and Dani tends to be more introverted. (just an observation....too much therapy on my part perhaps).

But they are fascinating to watch and I will be sad to see it end and interested to "hear" what their future holds. Hopefully a future full of hope, healing and a renewed relationship.

Thank you again for sharing this beautiful video :)

If it were Genuine on Daniele's part..I would say it was touching. But to see the way she has acted towards Dick and the many many negative comments she has made, makes me believe that a reunion after the show is not going to happen. She uses him for what she needs and when she needs it. People like her do not change...maybe she learned it from the master?!?!?!

It was so nice to see some of the good moments that they've had, because we've sure seen a lot of bad. I do hope that Daniele at least gets to see this, because it's important. The girl still has a lot of growing up to do. I think they should go directly to the Dr. Phil house, and finish working through their issues.

I really believe that there are more people out there that are rooting them on than either one of them thinks. I think the D&D lovers outnumber the haters. I've been in Dick's alliance since day one.

I think last nights Veto says it all. Danielle saved Dick over herself. Yep they have come a long way and whether they win the big money or not, I think having each other is worth much more. After the money is spent, what's left?
