After abruptly leaving the 'Big Brother' house for an undisclosed personal matter, Evel Dick Donato gave a farewell video message to the remaining houseguests last night.

Donato didn't provide any additional information for his departure, but he did underscore the seriousness of why he left. "Everyone knows how much I really love this game," he said. "I would have never left the house if it wasn't for an emergency."

Donato also had a message for estranged daughter Daniele, who rolled her eyes, looked away, and seemed acutely uncomfortable while the video played. "I'm really sorry that we're not going to be able to get to spend the summer together. We seem to get along the best when we're on 'Big Brother' playing together, and that's a big loss in my life," he said.
