Perez Hilton made Big Brother pay for his therapy has he's been so traumatised by the show and Katie Hopkins!

Speaking to SiriusXM radio, he said: "I've been seeing my therapist a lot lately. I actually got the show to pay for me to go to therapy. They don't voluntarily offer that but I told them I needed it and made them pay."

He went on to talk at length about his CBB nemesis Katie Hopkins. Here's what he had to say when the DJ, Jenny McCarthy asked him to "explain that b***h to people"...

"She's very right wing and conservative. And in the past I used to be that bitchy blogger but that's not who I am anymore.

"This woman is a straight up troll and hater, she says cruel things about groups of people. She hates fat people, she thinks they're lazy, she doesn't believe in learning disabilities, she won't hire people with tattoos. 'She's doing it as an act, she denied it but she is.'

"Now I realise that this woman was basically bullying me. All of the folks in the house started seeing her as powerful and me as weak because I didn't respond to her negativity with negativity.

"I was hurting emotionally, I wasn't sleeping. I wasn't well. In your real life you can hopefully extricate yourself from the situation but I couldn't here. I had to sleep in the same room as her.

Katie's company, The Katie Hopkins Company - a business and management agency - has run at a net loss since June 2009. As of 30 June 2012 it had a net worth of -£11,927, and had no declared turnover at all during the previous 12 months. Nice one, Katie...

"I knew it was jealousy and insecurity which was why she was lashing out at me. She was throwing all of this negativity at me and there came a point when I finally said 'I don't give a fk anymore,' he explained. 'I cut her balls off. I was like 'listen b*tch fk you.' And when I gave it back to her she became powerless.

"At night they lock you in the bedroom because it's a TV studio so they lock you in and they put these metal shutters down so it's pitch dark and don't let you out until 8.30 or 9am.

Perez said that he really regrets going on the show and said he wished that he'd done more research. He thought it was going to be like the US equivalent, but instead compared it to* Survivor*!

"You're a prisoner but I wasn't expecting it to be as ugly as it became. I did the show because they paid me an insane amount of money. I would never do it again. Hell no. My sanity and emotional well being are too important."
