On Nov. 4, Louisiana waitress Krista Stegall, 28, told EW she’s broken her engagement to fellow ”Big Brother 2” contestant Mike ”Boogie” Malin, 30, a California bar owner. Stegall was miffed by Malin’s last-minute decision not to compete in CBS’ ”Amazing Race 2,” for which she claims they were candidates. (CBS confirms there’d been ”conversations” about the couple’s casting.) ”Mike’s a great guy,” she says, ”but it”s not the same as it was in the house.” Malin says Stegall was irked by his new film-and-TV-writing partnership with cagey ”BB2” champ Will Kirby, 28.
