Dick Donato defeated his daughter, Daniele, on Tuesdays (Sept. 18) Big Brother season finale, and the father-daughter pair who were estranged for two years prior to the start of the show say despite the challenges, their confined quarters gave them the bonding boost they needed.
Daniele says, I cried more during the whole season than I ever have, but if it hadnt been for the show, I still wouldnt be talking to him.
Dick agrees, It was the hardest thing Ive ever had to do. This was playing a game with my life. Its a stepping stone, and were going to try to create some normalcy now.
And theres another positive side to mending their broken family fence.
Daniele says, I never had a father figure, but after this I realize everybody needs a mother and father in their life, and I can only move forward.
Dad Dick adds, Its amazing to be an inspiration to people. If this helps people reconcile with their family, then, you know, right on!
