It’s safe to say, Tom Hanks’ niece Carly Reeves did not take her elimination from reality TV series Claim To Fame well.
Carly featured on the second season of the ABC show, which sees a group of contestants, who are all related to a celebrity, move into a home together and deduce their fellow housemate’s starry connection.
But sadly, Carly’s time on the programme, which is hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas, yes of the famous singing brothers group, was shortlived after the participants sussed she was related to the Forrest Gump actor, 66, in week one.
After being given the boot, Carly burst into a tantrum, which saw her yelling insults at her fellow cast members, scream that she ‘should’ve been here longer’ and burst into tears.
Storming out the house, Carly wailed: ‘His freakin’ clues are so freakin’ obvious. There’s literally no reference to benches on any other movie. Even [fellow contestant] Gabriel found that out. He’s not even, like, smart.’
Continuing her meltdown, she wailed: ‘I didn’t even get to do any challenges. I don’t deserve this. I should have more camera time. I should be here longer. No one expected that, no one.’
Carly has since reflected on her dramatic exit, telling USA Today that she was ‘in a complete fog.’
‘I don’t even remember … Tom’s picture showing up. My eyes were so full of water. I was crying so much, I couldn’t even breathe. I just was hyperventilating a little bit because I was shocked,’ she continued.
However, she insisted she had ‘no regret’ about her behaviour, adding: ‘Honestly, I’m an emotional person, so I’m obviously going to react in a big way because that’s just how I am.’
She continued: ‘Could I have handled myself better and been a little bit more graceful with it? Yes. But as far as being upset and sad, that was all real. So, I can’t regret it.’
Like Tom, Carly works as an actor and made her on-screen debut in Hilary Duff’s 2004 movie Raise Your Voice.
She also starred alongside her famous uncle in the 2011 romantic comedy Larry Crowne, while her other credits include American Woman and Act of God.
