Frankie Grande has just heard some sad news. The Big Brother star’s sister, Ariana, who plays Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and reprised the role on the spin-off Sam & Cat actress originally kept the news from him, however the reality show producers just recently broke the news to hi that his grandfather had died, and it seems that the whole house is rallying around him.
TMZ broke the story earlier today … Frankie Grande’s grandpa died on Tuesday, but Ariana obeyed his final wish — to keep his death secret from Frankie, and allow him to continue on ‘BB.’
But this evening producers passed a note to Frankie from his family … which revealed the sad news.

It’s extremely rare for “Big Brother” producers to break quarantine and allow contestants to get news from the outside world.
