While they possibly thought that they had managed a casting coup of sorts to get the controversial girl inside the house, what they probably didn't bargain for was Maria's statement and the excessive curiosity of both the media and the law-keepers in Monica. And so it looked as though they wanted to wash their hands off her as fast as they could (and sorry we don't buy the argument of 'But the audience voted her out'; don't we all know how real these shows are?). After all, the channel is still in its baby days and didn't want to risk the 'controversial Monica' to tarnish their show.
As for Monica, her whole purpose of "presenting her true self" was lost as the housemates nominated her within two weeks. Here's hoping at least Sanjay Nirupam remembers his promise of helping her get a house in suburban Mumbai.
