Big Brother: Best Shows Ever caused the iconic phrase “yeah, Jackie!” to trend on Twitter after it showed Jackie Stallone greeting her ex daughter-in-law, Brigitte Nielsen.
The pair had been feuding for years before Brigitte, who was married to Jackie’s son Sylvestor Stallone, went in the CBB house in 2005.
But Brigitte could never have imagined Jackie would end up entering the house, and her shock was written all over her face.
“It’s Jackie,” she exclaimed.
“Yeah, Jackie,” Jackie bizarrely replied, creating one of the show’s best-loved catchphrases.
One delighted viewer tweeted: “Jackie Stallone might’ve been the best housemate ever! #BBUK “.
“Jackie vs Bridget, f**king loved it when she walked in to the house. #BBUK ” gushed another.
“YEAH JACKIE I love Jackie Stallone! #BBUK ” added a third.
“This is why #BBUK is so iconic.. most housemates do their research before going in, but not Jackie! xxx” laughed a fourth.
A fifth wrote: “Oh my god it’s Jackie! The nation: yeah, brackie #bbuk “.
Brigitte, who was married to Jackie’s son, Rocky Legend Sylvester Stallone from 1985 to 1987, had no idea she was about to enter the house.
The CBB housemates were lined up, dressed in their courtiers outfits, and told to bow for the Queen Mother, when Jackie walked in.
Their bitter spat came about when American tabloids reported that Jackie was against her son’s relationship with Brigitte, who in turn blamed Jackie for their divorce.
Jackie, a psychic astrologer, was said to have looked into the future and predicted that the marriage wouldn’t last.
She once said: “I asked Sylvester not to marry [Brigitte] because it was not going to last [longer]than the next eclipse, and he would file for divorce.”
Funnily enough, the marriage broke down within 18 months and Sylvester and Jackie had filed for divorce in April 1987, the month of the eclipse.
But during their time in the house together, Brigitte and Jackie managed to mend their relationship.
Looking back on their fall out, Brigitte, who is now married to Mattia Dessi, once said: “In the end she apologised for everything she’s said and done.
“A couple of times I went to her house for dinner with my husband, Mattia. Sylvester was completely freaked out about it.
“I’m there having Thanksgiving dinner and the only one who’s not there is Sylvester. It was bizarre. But what was so nice about it is that it’s never too late to make things better.”
