The 6ft tall, dark, and handsome actor apologized for his mistake. But the producers and the top bosses made the decision and they weren't going to change it.

He confessed about his depression after he got fired to fellow housemate Renee Graziano, during his time in CBB. He said, 

'I went into deep depression, I didn't know it was depression. I didn’t want to leave my house, I had all the blinds drawn.'

When asked how he felt after getting fired, he added, 

'When it came to the end of the contract, it was end of the contract, Normally I’d get a renewal…I was happy. I was only supposed to be there for three months, I was there just under six years.'

His childhood friend Darren claimed that Ricky didn't join the show CBB for the money but to change people's view. Well, he succeeded on his pursuit of gaining his lost reputation.
