In a fresh interview, reality star Vee opened up about her past relationship with fellow reality TV star, Neo, expressing that in hindsight, it would have been better for both of them if they had dissociated after the conclusion of the 2020 lockdown season of the popular show.
Vee disclosed that she carried feelings for Neo from the moment he entered the BBNaija house in 2020 and decided to take a chance on their connection.
However, she now believes that being distant after the show would have been a simpler and more beneficial decision for both of them.
Speaking about the complications they faced, Vee mentioned the intense social pressure, insults, and public critics that trails their relationship, particularly during the lockdown season, which she referred to as one of the biggest seasons of the show.
Despite the challenges, she noted that Neo was the only person she could relate to during those trying times.
“In my honest opinion, I feel like it should’ve been better if after we came out of the house, we just went our separate ways. It would have been easier for both of us, but because of the experiences we had, the lockdown, one of the biggest seasons, it came with a lot of social pressure, insults, and drags, and he was the only person I could relate to whatever I was going through,” Vee said.
She went on to predict that if they had chosen to part ways, they might still be friends today.
However, Vee admitted that the public’s tendency to quickly become attached to celebrity relationships and perceive them as perfect individuals, has shaped her reluctance to enter into public relationships in the future.
“Maybe we’d still be friends. Maybe a lot of things would’ve been different. Maybe the way I see relationships would be different. I now don’t want to be in a public relationship again because I know how the public gets attached to things so easily, and they see celebrities as people that do not make mistakes,” she Badded.
