Ct dating diem real world
when Brown’s ex Chris “CT” Tamburello and her sister Faith return to pay tribute to the fan favorite and healthcare activist, who died at age 34 in November 2014.
“Diem approached everything in her life with bravery, courage and determination,” says host TJ Lavin in an exclusive sneak peek as he introduces Tamburello and Faith to demonstrate a challenge that brings back fond memories of Diem’s fearlessness and resilience. I don’t think it would have been right for me to just dive back into another show.
In advance of his appearance on the show, Tamburello talked with PEOPLE about how it felt to return after his unexpected departure with Diem from (they both exited when she was medically evacuated to address her failing health), how the tribute gave Faith new insight on her sister’s world and how Diem’s legacy has impacted his life – and many others’ – in the 14 months since her death. I don’t think I was, honestly, mentally prepared to do it.
But then I found out Faith was going to be on the show, and I feel like it turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
For one, I felt like I was there with [Diem], being on there with Faith. For me to kind of poke my head out of my hole – you know, because I kind of went dark [this past year], and I didn’t want to do anything with anybody – to be able to come back on just to do a little guest spot, it was really nice.
It’s hard to explain, the sort of camaraderie [on the show].
A lot of people knew Diem, and it’s almost like Faith met a bunch of close friends that she didn’t know Diem had.
I know she was a little nervous – Faith is a little more of the shy type, she’s a little more introverted, she’s a sweetheart. The mannerisms with Faith and that look she gave me like, ‘Oh my God, shut up, I’m going as fast as I can! I couldn’t help but laugh and think, ‘My God, Diem’s watching me right now.’ Same old, same old, some things haven’t changed, you know? In a weird way, I felt like it was the closest thing I could think of to actually spending time with D again.
, which was a really powerful moment for Diem during her fight against cancer. Were you excited to see your old cast mates and the new competitors? Faith was the closest thing to her heart – the way she talks, her mannerisms, the type of person she is.
To be able to sit there and talk about back in the day, it was nice. ’ And having Faith do it with me made it that much easier.
