We're making the most of it and yes its kind of annoying when he watches Spanish news really loud because they talk SO fast. but I'm glad that he's my 'cell mate' in all of this. I wouldn't be locked down with anyone else." Gorka, 29, was quick to respond to her message. "I LOVE YOU!! ps: not as loud as your 3hr chat with mum," he joked.
