Title: It's getting ugly out there!
Post by: ugot2bekidinmeny on June 30, 2013, 02:14:48 PM
It never takes long for the "Big Brother" hamsters to let their true colors show in the house and Season 15 is no exception. Keep reading if you'd like to know exactly what the houseguests are up to, or sign up for the live feeds to see for yourself.

First, let's talk about Jeremy. We thought he was a sweet kid but kind of dumb when we met him. Turns out we were half right.

Jeremy likes nothing more than to refer to all the women in the house as "b*****es" -- seriously, it's left and right, it's all the time. Furthermore, he's been hooking up with Kaitlin in the house. Fine, whatever. Hook-ups happen on "Big Brother."

RELATED: BB swimsuit pics

But Saturday on the live feeds, he was bragging to David about how he touched Kaitlin's vagina because he wants "to see what [he's] working with." But he also called it her "meat wallet."

Who raised this kid? Because they sure didn't raise him to respect women.

Speaking of which, Spencer made a great impression on us at the press junket. But since being in the house, he has called Andy a f** and the women the c-word. Dude, that is not cool at all. Where does such hate come from?

Turning to the subject of race, last night Aaryn, Kaitlin and GinaMarie got rather ugly talking about Candice and Howard, saying that blacks stick together and that they're "tokens" in the house.

RELATED: Nighttime BB hook-ups

GinaMarie also said that Candice's "blackness" is showing now that she's not on the block and, honestly, we don't even know what that means. Everybody seems to hate Candice despite the fact that we've mostly only see her cook for people and be pretty nice.

So, if that's what letting your "blackness" show means, maybe we should all let our blackness out.

Candice and Aaryn had a little confrontation about whether or not Candice bent Aaryn's hat and right in the middle of it, Aaryn snottily told Candice that it's "asked, not axed," making fun of her accent.

It's not exactly n-word levels of racism, but it's pretty ugly nonetheless. And we're not done with little miss Aaryn.

Aaryn is pretty much the worst. She freaks out on David, her "showmance," when he so much as looks at another girl. Literally, she had a fit on Saturday when he put sunscreen on Jessie's back.

She also made fun of Helen for crying and said, "Dude, shut up, go make some rice," then was talking to Kaitlin about how Andy will probably get MVP next week because "people love the queers," but that nobody will vote "for who that queer puts up."

Lovely, right? Way to reinforce all the stereotypes about white Southern people, Aaryn. Not that only Southerners are racist --  Kaitlin and GinaMarie are hardly any better, which is disappointing because they seemed so nice on press day.

UPDATE: I Hate Big Brother says GinaMarie added that they should make Helen's "eyes straight" -- and Kaitlin called that "rude," to which GM responded, "Funny."

Um, no. And Kaitlin, don't think you can get back in our good graces by calling out one comment, though at least that's a start.

UDPATE II: Ragan Fox of "Big Brother 12" has written an open letter to CBS not to edit the way these people are behaving out of the broadcast.

So, just keep all this in mind when we start to see what kind of edits these people get from CBS.

AN OPEN LETTER TO BIG BROTHER’S PRODUCTION TEAM

I just read Andrea Reiher’s Zap2It article in which she documents racism, misogyny, and homophobia that’s already emerged in the Big Brother 15 house. Feed watchers have watched Spencer call women “c#nts” and spit the word “fag” in Andy’s face. Similarly, Aaryn complained that Andy would most likely get next week’s MVP because “people love the queers.” Aaryn’s also demanded Candice, an African American woman, say “asked, not axed” and suggested Helen, the season’s sole Asian American houseguest, should “go make some rice.” GinaMarie also wondered if they could make Helen’s eyes straight. And this is only WEEK 1! Imagine what will happen when they forget about the cameras.

Houseguests GinaMarie, Aaryn, and Kaitlin referred to historically marginalized players as “tokens.” Sadly, they aren’t too far off in their assessment. Characters like Andy, Candice, Howard, and Helen are reduced to mere tokens when production fails to include micro-aggressions that they have to endure on a day-to-day basis. What’s the point of casting racial, ethnic, and sexual minorities if production’s going to edit out the racism, ethnic discrimination, and homophobia that these people encounter inside the house? Moreover, why do historically marginalized players have the exclusive burden of narrating past acts of racial, ethnic, and sexual brutalization when we see this sort of discrimination enacted INSIDE THE HOUSE?

Big Brother, I LOVE you, but, if you really want to provide a groundbreaking twist, SHOW CBS VIEWERS HOW SOME STRAIGHT, WHITE PEOPLE talk about gays, Asian Americans, and African Americans. Capitalize on the Paula Deen controversy! Hate speech is currently a hot topic in the United States. It would be irresponsible to punt on this issue. What makes Aaryn’s homophobia and racism especially insidious is that it comes packaged in a bright-eyed, pageant-like exterior. I mean, how can somebody so sweet looking spew so much venom? Viewers would have to SEE it to BELIEVE it.

Let’s hope the series’ “expect the unexpected” refrain holds true.

Sincerely,

Ragan

This is unbelievable, 
I think CBS will totally side step the controversy, only because they do it every year.
Everyone who watches the live feeds knows there is way more to the story then what plays out on tv.
I remember a few times watching something play out on tv and thinking,. I watched the live feed of that and that isn't even what happened... CBS is the master of editing. 

In reality of the situation.. what can CBS really do about it.
They can't ex-spell someone for offending others...
It will be pretty interesting to watch it play out and I can't wait for tonights ep!

I am not for censoring anybody's speech. It is a reality show and this is the reality of how some people act in this world. We were all taught about stick and stones as children, besides the racial slurs are just shining a glaring spotlight on the idiots.  The nasty sexual comments are also warning every decent woman off these guys for life.

I am thrilled that Ragan wrote the letter, but am afraid that CBS will just gloss over it all. They are the ones that cast these people, and they won't want that to reflect back on them. Reminds me of Jerry when they made him out to be this sweet old guy in the edit, when he was so NOT!

I get what you are saying. What I wish is that when the show is shown on air that they wouldn't edit the person that we see on the feeds.

I agree Bandit. I called him the Old Geezer all the time and actually forgot his real name.  :crazy:

So I throw on after dark last night... (4:20am ish) and not 20 seconds of tuning in.. they dropped another racial slur

There was a few people up in HOH and they were passing around that bandanna ball thing and playing a game.. Im not even sure what the game was because like i said i literally tuned in 20 seconds before hand and they said something like you have to say a K word  and someone spews out K*KE and they all laugh

I couldnt believe it.. so I turned it off and went to bed.. not sure if ill even watch this year. Watching people make race comments all season isnt my idea of good tv

Were the 'Big Brother 15' houseguests warned about racial slurs?

By Andrea Reiher


The ugly comments that the "Big Brother 15" houseguests have been making against women, racial minorities and gays have been well-documented lately -- so, do the producers warn the hamsters about making them? Don't keep reading if you don't want to be spoiled about the live feeds, though sign up for the live feeds and follow along for yourself.

Sunday evening (June 30) at 7:27 p.m. PT, somebody in the backyard starts using the "Big Brother" public address system voice and goes, "Houseguests, just a reminder" -- and Amanda butts in and goes, "Do not make racial slurs against other houseguests."

Then Spencer says to her, "Do you want to scream that out a little louder?"

So, were the houseguests warned with the feeds turned out not to make racial slurs? We wonder if production told them how some of them are coming across? And was it just racial slurs, or was it other stuff too?

Of course, if they were warned, it didn't manage to permeate the "Blondtourage," as Nick calls them, because not 20 minutes later, Aaryn and GinaMarie had the following exchange:

GM: "Candice is definitely on the dark side [of the house] because she's already dark."
Aaryn: "Be careful what you say in the dark, might not be able to see the b****."

Lovely.

Meanwhile, Jeremy proves more and more he's just a big dumb oaf, as last night he took the alcohol the houseguests were given and shared it with his alliance, despite everyone agreeing to wait until the Have Nots could drink at midnight. Then he started yelling at everyone, seemingly for no reason. He also said during his tirade that he's Cherokee -- "We slide heads, we scalp people."

We're sure the Cherokee nation thanks you for that.

Seriously, if Kaitlin is telling you to cool it because you're sabotaging yourself, then you know you're doing something wrong, Jeremy.

We really hope David, Aaryn, Jeremy, Kaitlin and GinaMarie are the first five people evicted, they are the worst. Well, David's actually not that bad, but he's totally going home this week, so.

"Big Brother" airs Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights at on CBS.

Well we made it!! TMZ!!

CBS & 'BIG BROTHER'  We're OFFENDED By  Our Racist Houseguests

(http://ll-media.tmz.com/2013/07/02/0702-big-brother-facebook-3.jpg)

The honchos at CBS tell TMZ ... they were certainly OFFENDED by several racist and homophobic comments made by the current "Big Brother" houseguests ... but hey, that's live programming for ya.

The houseguests have been under fire from what appears to be the ENTIRE INTERNET over the following comments:

-- GinaMarie referred to welfare as “n**ger insurance”
-- Aaryn called gay contestant Andy a "queer."
-- Spencer referred to Andy as “Kermit the F**" ... and praised Hitler as a gifted speaker.

CBS has released a statement to TMZ ... saying, "We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive."

However, The Eye points out that 24/7 live programming can sometimes reveal some bad things about people ... saying, "At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone."

There have been rumors that Big Brother will be 86ing some of the offensive cast members -- but it certainly doesn't appear that's gonna happen.

I cannot believe the racist language. I haven't heard or seen the word K*ke used in years! And NEVER from anyone I ever knew. Where does this come from?

Violent hatred, I don't understand Jeremy talking about holding "her" under water, putting on concrete boots. Utter hatred for Ellise. Why? He doesn't even know her..  There have been many more comments by Jeremy, talking about having sex with his friends mother the night before he entered the house, talking about sex with other races.. he is a vile, disgusting person at 23. What will he be like in a few more years?

Not only did we make to TMZ, we made to Perezhilton.com

Aaryn Gries, Big Brother Contestant, Sparks Racist & Homophobic Controversy!

Or at least Aaryn did...

Anyone who watches the Big Brother's live feed knows that cast member Aaryn Gries makes Paula Deen look like Mother Theresa.

We're speechless. In the first week of Big Brother's 15th season alone, Aaryn has called another cast member a "queer," she's used several slurs against an Asian contestant behind her back saying that she should "go make some rice," and that "she is the first Asian I know that doesn't do nails," and regarding one of the African American contestants, Aaryn advised another housemate saying, "watch what you say in the dark, you might not see the b*tch."

Who is this girl, Mel Gibson and Michael Richards' love child?

And all of Aaryn's controversial live feed footage is being edited out by CBS, who's clearly trying to make her likeable by focusing instead on a potential showmance!

WTF? CBS, you can't allow such racism and bigotry to go unchecked. By keeping her on the show, you're practically giving her your blessing and support to continue to be a racist homophobe, and confirming that she's the type of person you'd like to see win the competition. GUH-ROSS!

No wonder people are already petitioning for her to get off the show.

Zephyr Talent
6 hours ago near Austin, TX ·

Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent.

 here's the Petition to get Aaryn expelled from the show. make sure to read the comments

Petitioning CBS
CBS Television Network: To expel current contestant of Big Brother 15 Aaryn Gries

Gries has made racist and homophobic comments since she entered the Big Brother house. Racism and Homophobia shouldn't be allowed while competing in a TV show that streams live 24 hours a day.

Here are some of the racist and homophobic comments Aaryn Gries has made on Big Brother 15:

-- "They (referring to two African-american contestants) are going to stick together because of the black thing"

-- "Learn how to talk, it's asked, not aksed," while talking to another African-american contestant.

-- "Shut up and go and make some rice," referring to an Asian contestant

-- "He could get MVP (a privilege given by viewers to the favorite contestant every week) because everyone loves the queers," referring to a gay contestant

-- "She is the first Asian I know who doesn't do nails," referring to an Asian contestant.

CBS Television Network and the production of Big Brother must take swift action to condemn Aaryn's remarks, and Aaryn must be expelled. These steps are necessary for both Aaryn and the station to prove they can be trusted to report objectively on issues that impact the human rights and LGBT community.

To:
CBS, Complaints Department
Chris Ender, Executive Vice President, Communications
Ed Harrison, Director, Press Information
Dana McClintock, Executive Vice President, Communications
Endemol, Producer
Robyn Kass, Casting Director
Sienna Sanders, Manager, Publicity
Mitch Graham, Director Publicity
To expel current contestant of Big Brother 15 Aaryn Gries

A group of us have been alerted to the fact that the Big Brother contestant, Aaryn Gries has made several racist and homophobic comments. Although CBS will most likely edit these images to avoid these comments on public television, Big Brother streams live 24 hours for those fans who subscribe to this service.

'BIG BROTHER' AARYN Dropped By Modeling Agcy.Over Offensive Comments

Aaryn Gries -- the Paula Deen of the "Big Brother" house -- has been dropped by her modeling agency after dropping racist and homophobic comments in the BB house ... TMZ has learned.

Gries has been under fire for referring to a gay houseguest as a "queer" ... AND for telling an Asian-American houseguest to "shut up and go and make some rice" ... AND for saying racist stuff about black people.

When referring to a black contestant, Aaryn said "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b*tch."

Now, Zephyr Talent in Austin, Texas says they've seen enough -- and have decided to DROP Aaryn from the agency because of her filthy mouth.

"Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone."

Zephyr continues, " We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent."

Obviously, Aaryn cannot be reached for comment -- 'cause she's still in the BB house ... with all of those people she hat

Big Brother Contestant Aaryn Fired From Modeling Agency for Offensive Comments


Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries has been fired from her modeling agency for offensive comments she made on the show, TMZ reports.

Gries, 22, has been seen and heard multiple times on the show's after-hours live feed making both homophobic and racist remarks -- calling a gay houseguest "queer," telling Asian-American Helen to "shut up and go make some rice," and saying, "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b----," in reference to African-American contestant Candice.

Big Brother Exclusive: Take a look at the new have-not room

"Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone," the agency said in a statement to TMZ. "We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Upon much consideration, we have decided to release Aaryn from her contract with Zephyr Talent."

An email to CBS and Zephyr were not immediately returned.

Big Brother: Meet the new houseguests!

This isn't the first time a houseguest has been under fire for comments he or she has made. In Season 9, eventual winner Adam Jasinski was fired from the United Autism Foundation for calling the children "retards."

Do you agree with Zephyr's decision to ax Aaryn?

I think all this controversy over what people say inside the house is only going to bring one outcome, the live feeds will disappear and so will After Dark.  We have to realize that we cannot censor everyone all the time.  People say hurtful things about how people look, act, etc... We need to just consider the source and move on.  I doubt that there are very few saints out there that have never said something they shouldn't have.  Many of these people are very young and have much to learn.

Northenlite: I don't think they will disappear.  :<3  We've had other events happen and they kept the show going. Evel Dick was probably one of the more controversial HGs, particularly towards Jen, but he also won. (I enjoyed updating ED.. puddin made me a smiley just for him. :dick  :funny: He was potty mouthed but he always had a reason for what he was doing.)

I think it was season 2 when one of the HGs had to be removed by security because production was afraid he would kill one of the women on the show.

One of the worst offenders was Adam the winner of Season 9 who called autistic children retards, that caused a HUGE controversy. (We call Season 9 "The Season That Shall Not Be Mentioned.") He and Ryan and several other of the guys openly talked about the drugs they used and Adam subsequently went to jail for attempting to sell drugs.

There are other instances too but I try not to remember them. LOL

Texans are pretty broad minded. I don't know anyone who talks like Aaryn and Jeremy or uses the asinine language they use. They don't run in my circle that's for certain. Aaryn would not be welcome using the language she does in the clubs on 6th Street in Austin. Austin is a very liberal city.

My husband is part Cherokee, he doesn't talk about scalping people, getting a teepee or getting revenge and none of his brothers do either. Talk about STUPID!
Jeremy using the excuse, 'I'm just an immature young boy at 23.' doesn't hack it for me.
 
Production forced Jeremy to apologize to Ellisa and we probably won't hear anything more about this particular incident but Jeremy is a loose cannon and Aaryn knows how to push his buttons. I don't think he would have used Elissa's hat as he did if Aaryn hadn't been boohooing about how badly she was being treated. (Professional victim that she is. IMO)

I hope you are right TexasLady. Big Brother is my guilty pleasure that I look forward to every year and I love After Dark although it was much better on Showtime. I think the consequences of these kids actions are going to hurt them more and for longer  than their words have hurt the people they've offended. I see a horrible trend in this country towards censoring everything and everyone and it scares me. I don't want to live in a country that dictates how everyone speaks and acts. Scary!!  :pray:

Looked for the smiley for asshat but could not find it, could of swore it was here last year. Anyhow it makes a great and fitting symbol for Jeremy.  If he were my son he would be in DEEP trouble when he came home. I don't tolerate disrespect for women at all.  :flipper

RACHEL REILLY
Ex-Big Brother Champ
SLAMS Racist Houseguests

Rachel Reilly -- the 2011 "Big Brother" champ -- says she's "disgusted" by all of the racist and homophobic comments being made inside the BB house this season -- telling TMZ, "It makes me sick to my stomach."

Rachel has a vested interest in the show this season because her sister Elissa is one of the houseguests -- and is currently living with the people responsible for the bigotry.

We spoke with Rachel and her husband Brendon (another BB alum) who tell us they, like CBS, are offended by the hateful words that have been spoken inside the house.

"We think it's vile and disgusting and are completely horrified that people can even think such hateful things."

The couple adds, "Being former houseguests we understand how people can turn on each other ... but the offensive things that Aaryn, GinaMarie, Katlin, Spencer and Jeremy say disgust us, and make us sick to our stomachs."

I found out what Jeremy did to Elissa's hat.  He is a very vulgar boy, can't call him a man, possibly an asshat. Looked for the smiley for asshat but could not find it, could of swore it was here last year. Anyhow it makes a great and fitting symbol for Jeremy.  If he were my son he would be in DEEP trouble when he came home. I don't tolerate disrespect for women at all.  :flipper

Found it.. :ahat:

I think he has used his "charm" to get around trouble as he did with Elissa last night. 'I'm just an immature 23 year old boy.' And he gets away with it for the most part. But he's not a boy, he should be a man by now. Too bad he really can't man up.

In 15 seasons of BB, and I have watched he live feeds from all the way back in Season 1, I have never seen a group of HGs as bad this group.  While all five, Aaryn, GinaMarie, Kaitlin, Spencer and Jeremy, have had there moments Aaryn and Jeremy have by far been the worse offenders.  I wish we could send ED back into that house.  Jeremy thinks he's being like ED, LOL!  ED would slap him silly, and say "how dare you take my name in vain" 

The BB House is suppose a fun and rewarding experience each summer.  It's suppose allow you to have a chance to win some money, while playing in comps and making some new friends.  However this season it's been more about who can I hate on today.  This seasons motto for BB instead of "Expect the unexpected!"  is "Can racist, bad Houseguests equal ratings?"

'Big Brother' rocked by big controversy: Racism, sexism and homophobia


 
Ree Hines TODAY contributor

The 15th season of CBS' "Big Brother" kicked off just one week ago, and evidently, that's more than enough time to kick off some controversy.

As the new houseguests settled in to their summer home and started bonding with their fellow players, some of them have shown their less-than-TV-friendly sides.

In fact, the worst of the behavior -- which has included undeniably racist, sexist and homophobic remarks -- hasn't even made it to the small screen at all. Instead, live-feed viewers, who pay a subscription to see the events in the house as they happen on the "Big Brother" website, watched the action and uploaded the evidence to YouTube (the clips have since been removed "due to copyright claim by Endemol USA Inc," the production company behind "Big Brother").

The offenses include frequent use of the N-word and gay slurs by more than one contestant and much more. Some of the most shocking comments so far have come from what's shaping up to be this season's "Mean Girls" clique, made up of Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman.

Both Gries and Zimmerman slammed Korean-American housemate Helen Kim behind her back, each saying she should serve them some rice, with Zimmerman adding, "I'm gonna punch her in the face. I'm, like, 'Oh, maybe it'll make her eyes straight.' "

The two have also bashed African-American contestant Candice Stewart, accusing her of letting her "blackness show." Gries went so far as to warn her in-game ally to watch what she says in the dark because she "might not be able to see the b----."

Various slams from Kaitlin Barnaby, Jeremy McGuire, David Girton and Spencer Clawson have been somewhat less frequent, but just as upsetting to those watching the feeds. But why haven't TV viewers seen or heard any of it?

That's what some fans -- and at least one past contestant -- are asking.

Former "Big Brother" player Ragan Fox, who was part of the season 12 cast, posted an open letter to the production team on his blog.

"Houseguests GinaMarie, Aaryn, and Kaitlin referred to historically marginalized players as 'tokens,'" Fox wrote. "Sadly, they aren’t too far off in their assessment. Characters like Andy (Herren), Candice, Howard (Overby), and Helen are reduced to mere tokens when production fails to include micro-aggressions that they have to endure on a day-to-day basis. What’s the point of casting racial, ethnic, and sexual minorities if production’s going to edit out the racism, ethnic discrimination, and homophobia that these people encounter inside the house?"

Fox went on to explain why he thinks it's so important for CBS to air the offensive footage.

"'Big Brother,' I LOVE you, but, if you really want to provide a groundbreaking twist, SHOW CBS VIEWERS HOW SOME STRAIGHT, WHITE PEOPLE talk about gays, Asian Americans, and African Americans," he said. "Capitalize on the Paula Deen controversy! Hate speech is currently a hot topic in the United States. It would be irresponsible to punt on this issue. What makes Aaryn’s homophobia and racism especially insidious is that it comes packaged in a bright-eyed, pageant-like exterior. I mean, how can somebody so sweet looking spew so much venom? Viewers would have to SEE it to BELIEVE it."

Fans have even started a Change.org petition asking CBS to expel Gries, perceived by many to be the worst offender, from the house. Over 3,600 fans have signed it so far.

Gries' agency, Zephyr Talent, has dropped the 22-year-old in the wake of the controversy.

"Aaryn, season 15 cast member of 'Big Brother,' revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we (Zephyr Talent) do not condone," the agency explained on its Facebook page. "We certainly find the statements made by Aaryn on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by Aaryn, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are hers alone and do not represent the views or opinions of Zephyr Talent."

As for what, if any, action the network will take, that remains unclear. TODAY.com reached out to CBS for comment about the current controversy, but a statement from the network made no mention of changes.

“BIG BROTHER is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives," the statement read. "At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on BIG BROTHER, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”

During a 2010 interview, "Big Brother" executive producer Allison Grodner addressed past decisions not to air certain controversial and insensitive comments on the show.

"We always say that these are real people and they are not being censored in there," Grodner told Reality Blurred. "And they have opinions and so forth that we don’t necessarily agree with and condone and want to put out there further, to be honest. We really don’t want to put hateful things out there in our edits. And so for the most part, when this goes down, we keep that out of the show."

I cannot believe the racist language. I haven't heard or seen the word K*ke used in years! And NEVER from anyone I ever knew. Where does this come from?

Violent hatred, I don't understand Jeremy talking about holding "her" under water, putting on concrete boots. Utter hatred for Ellise. Why? He doesn't even know her..  There have been many more comments by Jeremy, talking about having sex with his friends mother the night before he entered the house, talking about sex with other races.. he is a vile, disgusting person at 23. What will he be like in a few more years?

'Big Brother' GinaMarie FIRED from Day Job for Racist Comments


GinaMarie has been fired from her job as per TMZ...

"Big Brother" contestant GinaMarie Zimmerman is gonna have a rude awakening when she leaves the house -- she's been FIRED from her day job after dropping the N-bomb.

TMZ has learned ... East Coast USA Pageant, Inc. is cutting ties with the 32-year-old pageant coordinator ... claiming they were shocked GZ could "display such acts of hate and racism."

As we previously reported, GinaMarie referred to welfare as "n**ger insurance" ... and the comments were captured on "Big Brother's" uncensored live Internet feed.

East Coast USA says GinaMarie has been an employee for 5 years -- but insist, "We have never known this side of GinaMarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past."

The pageant says, "We are actually thankful that this show let us see GinaMarie for who she truly is. We would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants."

"In a business where we are surrounded by beauty every day we are saddened to see something so ugly come from someone we put on a very high pedestal."

A rep for the organization tells us they are especially upset because they encouraged their pageant girls to watch GinaMarie on the show and vote for her ... thinking she would be a role model.

'Big Brother 15': Another Houseguest Loses Job Over Racial Slurs


UPDATED: Staten Island resident GinaMarie Zimmerman has been let go from her job at East Coast USA Pageant.


Hours after Big Brother contestant Aaryn Gries was dropped by her talent agency over offensive remarks, fellow houseguest GinaMarie Zimmerman has lost her day job for the same reason.

The 32-year-old Zimmerman has been fired from her position at East Coast USA Pageant, Inc., where she was an employee for five years, due to racist remarks made on the uncensored 24-hour live feeds on CBS.com. The outspoken Staten Island resident drew ire when she used the N-word in referencing the insurance she was on, among other comments referring to houseguests' ethnicities.

Lauren Handler, East Coast USA Pageant's national director and CEO, issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter regarding Zimmerman's firing Wednesday, saying that the company is "in disbelief and shock that Ginamarie Zimmerman ... could display such acts of hate and racism." TMZ first reported the news.

"We have never known this side of Ginamarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past," the statement continues. "We are actually thankful that this show let us see Ginamarie for who she truly is as we would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants. It is unfortunate that her hateful words were able to be witnessed by so many thousands of Big Brother fans as they were rightfully so deeply offended."

With Big Brother slated to air its first live eviction July 3, it is unclear whether CBS will address the houseguests' statements on air or on a future broadcast. The comments have not been addressed in the three edited CBS telecasts that have aired.

Prior to the July 2 episode, CBS distanced itself from the houseguests' comments on the live feeds by issuing a statement addressing public outcry over the cast's insensitive remarks: "We certainly find the statements made by several of the houseguests to the live Internet feed to be offensive."

This comes after CBS moved the live evictions of the summer staple back to Thursday nights beginning next week and after former Food Network star/chef Paula Deen came under fire for admitting to using the N-word in the past.

Read the full statement below:

After watching the live feed from the current season of CBS’s Big Brother we have been left in disbelief and shock that Ginamarie Zimmerman our employee for the past 5 yrs. could display such acts of hate and racism. The East Coast USA Pageant is an outlet for girls and women to gain self-confidence, announce their platform and most importantly celebrate who they are. We believe and teach our contestants that beauty comes from within. We celebrate the diversity of our participants as all ethnicities are beautiful. We have never known this side of Ginamarie or have ever witnessed such acts of racism in the past.

We are actually thankful that this show let us see Ginamarie for who she truly is as we would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants. It is unfortunate that her hateful words were able to be witnessed by so many thousands of Big Brother fans as they were rightfully so deeply offended. We are unable to contact her at this time but when she returns from the Big Brother house we will be terminating her employment for her unforgivable behavior. In a business where we are surrounded by beauty every day we are saddened to see something so ugly come from someone we put on a very high pedestal.

Big Brother: Hate Speech In House Sparks Fervent Reaction


(http://img2-3.timeinc.net/people/i/2013/news/130708/julie-chen-600.jpg)


A handful of Big Brother houseguests are in hot water – and not just those up for eviction this week.

Since moving in to the house less than two weeks ago, contestants Aaryn Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman, Spencer Clawson and others have been documented using racial, homophobic and misogynistic slurs on the 24-hour live feeds online.

The hate speech – which has reportedly been directed towards the women, African-Americans, Asians and gays in the house – has sparked a fervent reaction from both fans and former contestants of the CBS reality show.

"I find it disgusting and horrible that people still think this way in their hearts and act like it is okay to say," season 13 winner Rachel Reilly tells PEOPLE. "Every time one of these people come on a live feed I change it because I am so disgusted."



As a result of the documented slurs, Gries, 22, has been dropped by her modeling agency in Texas and Zimmerman, 32, has been fired from her employer East Coast Pageant, Inc., TMZ reports.

"Big Brother, I LOVE you, but, if you really want to provide a groundbreaking twist, SHOW CBS VIEWERS HOW SOME STRAIGHT, WHITE PEOPLE talk about gays, Asian Americans, and African Americans," season 12 contestant Ragan Fox said in an open letter Sunday. "It would be irresponsible to punt on this issue…viewers have to see it to believe it."

CBS also addressed the controversy in a statement released to PEOPLE.

"Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 – and seeing every moment of their lives," says the network's statement. "At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive."

And while CBS has not aired the controversial statements and slurs, not everyone believes they should or have to.

"I stand by CBS if they do not want to air it," Reilly says. "But I am saddened by what [the houseguests] have to say about minorities. The homophobic and racist remarks are beyond bad."

Letter From The Editor; Cover Model Aaryn Elizabeth Gries and Bella Petite Magazine

Ann-Lauren-Bella-Petite-Magazine-Editor-in-Chief

Dear Bella Petite readers,

I appreciate the concerns expressed from many of Bella Petite’s subscribers regarding recent comments from Bella Petite Magazine cover model and ‘Big Brother’ contestant, Aaryn Gries.

Each year Bella Petite takes great pride in celebrating the top twelve petite model cover girl entrants from around the world to the Bella Petite Model Search. We select winners based on their photo submissions and positive participation through the selection process to our contest and various other criteria, and we expect those who are selected as our top spokesmodels to represent the positive and enthusiastic spirit of Bella Petite’s brand.

Like many of you, I was surprised and disappointed to read about the recent insensitive comments from Ms. Gries on ‘Big Brother.’ I want to emphasize to all of our readers that her comments are absolutely inconsistent with the principles that Bella Petite is built on.

As a result, I have determined that Ms. Gries is no longer a positive representation of Bella Petite’s brand and Bella Petite will not be featuring her in any promotions related to the model search in accordance with the rules of our model search. I certainly appreciate Ms. Gries right to express herself, but simply do feel that her involvement in any of our model search promotions going forward would be appropriate given our core principles and values at Bella Petite Magazine.

Bella Petite is the leading publication and community devoted to the interests of petite women 5’5” and under, and it has always been our mission to be a source of positivity and encouragement for petite women around the world of every ethnicity, religion, or culture. It is Bella Petite’s continuing mission to be a place for petite women to celebrate and support one another, and I have no doubt that if we do so, we will all be stronger for it.

Sincerely,

Ann Lauren Editor-in-Chief Bella Petite Magazine

Union Pacific statement regarding Spencer Clawson's comments on the Big Brother reality television show

The values represented by Spencer Clawson's comments during the Big Brother show do not at all align with Union Pacific's values. Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments.

Union Pacific is acting in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreement terms regarding Mr. Clawson.

I think that was their point, that he's currently on leave and not in any way representing the company.  Issuing a statement like this is probably the worst thing they can do to him depending on the terms of the CBA.

The pure hatred flying around the hues is just disgusting, you can tell they are just incredibly ugly people n every sense of the word.  It is good to see that such bad behavior is not being condoned out n the real world. I just hope they learn from this. Aaryn surprises me the most since she truly seems delusional about how she is coming across. I think it will be the hardest for her to "get it" after ten game.

'BB' STAR SPENCER CLAWSON SLAMMED by Day Job Employer

Another "Big Brother" houseguest is on the outs with their employer ... this time it's Spencer Clawson, whose company is already laying the groundwork to hand him his walking papers.

Clawson has been captured on "BB" cams calling one houseguest "Kermit the F**" and praising Hitler as a gifted speaker.

Clawson serves as a railroad conductor for Union Pacific, who released a statement on their website saying, "The values represented by Spencer Clawson's comments during the Big Brother show do not at all align with Union Pacific's values."

They continued, "Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments."


They ended their statement by saying they are "acting in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreement terms regarding Mr. Clawson" ... which sounds like they are setting the stage to fire his ass first chance they get.

Both GinaMarie and Aaryn have already lost gigs due to their racist comments on the show.

Big Brother 'Outs' Two Racist Houseguests to Viewers — Was It Enough?

by Matt Webb Mitovich and Rebecca Iannucci

Big Brother Racists OutedCBS’ Big Brother on Sunday night took a small yet meaningful step in bringing to the home audience’s attention the offensive comments being made by some houseguests during the after-hours live feeds.

Midway through Sunday’s episode — and after Aaryn had won the Head of Household competition — a three-minute montage of strategy talk and other discussions was played for viewers. Within the video package, houseguests such as Howard (who is African-American) and Amanda vented their disapproval for Aaryn and GinaMarie, two of the players who have been seen on the live feeds making offensive slurs.

The montage excerpted some of the aforementioned women’s racist and homophobic comments, which came to light during the first week of the new season. (“It’s like, ‘Shut up, go make some rice,’” Aaryn says in reference to Helen, who is Asian, while GinaMarie notes that African-American “Candice is already on the dark side, because she’s already dark.” Aaryn also uses an epithet to describe Andy, who’s gay.)

Side note: Per a TVLine reader poll, 82 percent said that CBS should not edit out all offensive slurs but instead let America see these players for who they truly are.

Regardless of all the “buzz” surrounding BB15 — or perhaps because of the nature of it — recent ratings have registered all-time lows for the summertime staple.

Because of the controversy, Aaryn and GinaMarie have, still unbeknownst to them, lost a modeling contract and a job as a pageant coordinator, respectively. Other houseguests on record as having made racist, homophobic and/or misogynist remarks, such as Spencer, were not singled out in the segment.

At least it's a start..... I was hoping they would play more from some of the other hg's as well-- especially at least some of the horrible things Jeremy & Spencer have said, too. UGH. Where on Earth did they get these people?? I was so, so excited for BB to start this year, and this is what we get?? I am having a hard time watching it, and even decided against the live feeds, at least for now.

Reality Show Contestants Pay a Real-World Price
On ‘Big Brother,’ Racial and Gay Slurs Abound


In the summer of 2000, when CBS first locked people in a fishbowl of a house and televised almost every second of their lives, there was a spate of bad press when a newspaper discovered that a participant had ties to the New Black Panther Party. The network quickly issued a statement that said it “will not tolerate nor permit any hate speech on the program,” called “Big Brother.”

Bill Inoshita/CBS
Aaryn Gries has lost a modeling contract because of her use of racial and gay slurs.
Since then, reality has intruded. This summer, in the show’s 15th iteration, several participants have been overheard making racist, sexist and homophobic comments about others in the house, and in the process they have reignited the oldest debate in reality television: whether the show’s producers are appropriately and fairly depicting real life in their quest to provoke and entertain viewers.

The slurs were shown on the Internet (where paying subscribers watch live feeds from the house around the clock — “See what we can’t show you on TV,” the CBS Web site says) but were not immediately on the television version of the show, whose producers distill the action into three hourly episodes each week. This troubled some loyal followers of “Big Brother,” because television viewers were seeing an incomplete picture of the participants. On a show with a $500,000 grand prize, perceptions and reputations are important.

“Why not show these people for who they actually are?” wrote the RealityBlurred.com blogger Andy Dehnart, who has cataloged what he called a torrent of offensive comments since the Season 15 premiere on June 26. “After all,” Mr. Dehnart wrote, “producers and network executives all approved them and decided to give them 90 days of attention while using them to earn money.”

Among the remarks: GinaMarie Zimmerman, who is white, was heard insulting African-Americans and equating them to “tokens.” When she referred to an African-American housemate as dark, another white contestant, Aaryn Gries, responded, “Be careful what you say in the dark; might not be able to see that bitch.” About an Asian-American participant, Ms. Gries was heard saying: “Dude, shut up. Go make some rice!” Ms. Gries was also heard criticizing an openly gay contestant, using an epithet to argue that no one would vote for the participant. Another contestant, Spencer Clawson, has uttered words, unpublishable here, targeting gays and women.

As the controversy bubbled up, CBS emphatically said that it did not condone the prejudicial comments. It said the same thing in 2011, the last time there was outrage about hateful words on the show’s Internet stream. But to some viewers, this time felt different.

“I’ve watched all but two seasons of ‘Big Brother’ and have never seen players so vocal and unapologetic about their bigotry,” said Ragan Fox, an associate professor of communication studies at California State University, Long Beach, who is gay and was a contestant in 2010.

On June 30 he wrote an open letter to the producers urging them not to sanitize the television version of the show. “What’s the point,” he asked, “in casting gay, Asian-American and African-American characters if producers are going to edit out the racism and homophobia these contestants deal with while playing the game?”

Last Wednesday’s “Big Brother” came and went without any mention of the controversy. On Sunday, though, the show addressed some of it head-on, in a way that is unusual on broadcast television.

“It was ultimately part of the story in the house,” said Allison Grodner, an executive producer of “Big Brother” since its inception, who has defended the show’s choice to cut out isolated offensive comments in past seasons.

In this case Ms. Gries became the household’s temporary leader, causing several contestants to talk about how they disapproved of her abusive language. “That gave us a launching pad to be able to tell this story,” Ms. Grodner said. Several of the offensive clips were broadcast.

“I do feel it would be irresponsible to put hate on the airwaves just for hate’s sake,” she added. “You need to have some sort of context.”

In a statement on Monday afternoon, CBS said: “We are very mindful of the important issues that have been raised by these recent comments. With regard to the broadcast version, we are weighing carefully issues of broadcast standards, an obligation to inform the audience of important elements that influence the competition, and sensitivity to how any inappropriate comments are presented.”

Sunday’s show omitted some of the misogynistic and homophobic language used by others in the house, like Mr. Clawson, but it could come up in future episodes if it becomes part of the season narrative. (The show will end its season on Sept. 18.)

“I hope this establishes a precedent for future seasons,” Mr. Fox said in an e-mail after the episode. “When production turns a blind eye to racism, sexism and homophobia, they become complicit in the very forms of hate speech they actively deny.”

Rebutting some of the online fury of the past few days, Ms. Grodner said the show’s producers do not actively “look for people who might say things like this.” She suggested that “Big Brother” was simply mirroring real life, as ugly as it sometimes is.

“Your neighbor is probably using racial slurs behind closed doors, no offense to your neighbor,” she said, pausing before adding, “There’s a very important discussion here that people will hopefully have as a result of all this.”

In the meantime, the controversy has proved costly to Ms. Gries and Ms. Zimmerman. The modeling agency that represented Ms. Gries has dropped her contract — unbeknown to her, of course, since the people in the house don’t hear from the outside world — and she has been nicknamed “Klan Barbie” by some followers of the show.

Ms. Zimmerman has lost her job as a pageant coordinator. “We are actually thankful that this show let us see GinaMarie for who she truly is,” her employer said in a statement, “as we would never want her to be a role model to our future contestants.”

When are Rob and Trevor going to address the elephant in the room and discuss the racial controversy on the show? They've never shied away from issues before so I hope they come through. I'm concerned the ratings are an all time low and as a major fan, feel the show needs to get ahead of this issue instead of being an ostrich. Spencer needs to go NOW and I believe the producers can use this drama to actually increase interest. The mistake would be to pretend nothing is wrong leaving all commentary to TMZ and the Huffington Post and thus irrelevant. Allison Grodner needs to take a cue from the meltdown of AMERICAN IDOL this season.

'BIG BROTHER' Spencer's Mom Swears MY SON'S NOT A BIGOT!


"Big Brother" star Spencer Clawson is not a Hitler-loving bigot -- he's just saying terrible things so his racist friends in the house will like him ... so says Spencer's mother.

TMZ spoke with Donna Clawson ... who insists her son wasn't showing his true colors when "BB" cameras caught him praising Hitler and referring to a gay housemate as "Kermit the f**."

"Spencer really is a great guy," she tells us ... "This is not a guy that’s a bigot or a racist. And he’s not that way at home. He's a great guy."

So why would Spencer say such horrible things? Mama Clawson says her son is just trying to fit in with the racist, homophobic people in the house ... because it's the only way he can win the reality show.

"If you're in a group, you go along with the group talk and that is what is happening with him."

She adds, "This is a reality show. The purpose of the show is scheming behind each other's backs."

"Spencer might not be perfect but he's my son. All those kids are somebody's child. He's a good guy."

I know production isn't supposed to get involved. But, we all know that they do help steer the game.   Why can't production intervene and school these kids?  I feel like they have an obligation to protect  them at this point for what they will face when they re-enter the re world.   I know its deserved, but some of them are just plain ignorant and don't even or aren't capable of comprehending why they are so offensive on so many different levels.

Third 'Big Brother' Contestant Set To Lose Job Over Racist & Homophobic Comments

A third contestant on CBS reality series Big Brother has come under fire for offensive comments he made that were caught on tape during the show's 24/7 live feed online.

Spencer Clawson, like HouseGuests Aaryn Gries and GinaMarie Zimmerman, has made several off-key remarks, including gay slurs and praising Adolf Hitler for being a "gifted speaker."

Clawson's employer, Union Pacific Railroad, has now begun the process of terminating the employment of the 31-year-old train conductor over his bigoted comments on the show.

"The values represented by Spencer Clawson's comments during the Big Brother show do not at all align with Union Pacific's values," a statement from the company reads. "Mr. Clawson is on unpaid leave of absence while participating on Big Brother. Union Pacific does not condone his comments."

The company says it is looking into the current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) terms with the transportation union that represents Clawson.

Apparently Spencer's mom doesn't realize he's a grown man and shouldn't be sucked into a pattern of poor behavior simply to be liked by his "friends" in the house.  I've seen 10-year-old kids behave more grown up and stand up to their friends for picking on people, so this is a poor excuse.  As a parent I understand no one wants to think their child can behave so badly, but you can't make excuses for that behavior.

While I find his comments disgusting, I'm still not sure what in the CBA would allow the railroad to fire him for his comments.  Other than the comments about drug use (I think I read he had made those comments as well) which could prompt his employer to make any random drug tests a little less random and more frequent the rest of his comments may not be actionable.  He is definitely a liability, but unless there are complaints about him making those types of comments while on the job, to fellow employees or passengers I'm not sure they can just fire him.

Edit:  I left out the part that while I think it is unlikely I would love for there to be something in their policy manual governing outside behavior.

Well It Appears David is still rooting for Aaryn, from TMZ and the ongoing BB Saga Files:  :funny:

David From 'Big Brother' Still Rooting for Aaryn ... Despite the Racist Stuff


Evicted "Big Brother" guest David Girton -- the blonde surfer dude who made out with Aaryn -- says he's still rooting for his on-screen flame ... despite all the racist crap she's said inside the house.

David -- who got the boot in week 1 -- tells TMZ he didn't hear many of Aaryn's offensive comments when he was in the house ... but says he was "shocked" when he watched the footage at home.

 "People are saying I'm racist too because I was with Aaryn," David says ... "That is not me."

David says he's not convinced Aaryn's a bigot -- but will continue to watch the show to see her "true colors." In fact, he says he's still rooting for Aaryn to win.

So how does Dave's MOTHER feel about his BB experience?

“My mom is glad I got off the show early. There are a lot of mean people on the show. She was worried that if I was on the show longer, they would have an impact on me."

Blessing in disguise?

TMZ Reporting Once Again On the Racial Stuff Coming to a Head Last Night...

'Big Brother' Race War Explodes Aaryn Mocks Black Houseguests


The race war inside the "Big Brother" house came to a head last night ... when racist Aaryn picked a fight with a black female contestant ... and MOCKED her by saying, "Whatchu gon do, gurl?"

She continued in an over-the-top stereotypical black voice ... saying, "Whatchu gon do gurrl ... class girl? Where's yo class?" (drama begins at the 2:00 mark)

It was disgusting and vile -- a callback to a white slavemaster talking to a slave on a plantation.

Eventually, Candice -- who's African American -- stood up for herself ... only for another female contestant, GinaMarie, to get in her face ... saying, "You want the black to come out?"

As things got even more intense, Howard -- who's also black -- grabbed Candice and begged her to stand down and not fight with the other racist houseguests.

FYI -- the fight started over a "prank" Aaryn pulled on Candice -- by flipping over her mattress.

Candice broke down in tears after the confrontation. Aaryn probably scouted for wood to burn a cross.

TMZ has provided a video at the source link as well, be advised the video contains footage that could be offensive.

As mentioned in out live show discussion threads tonight another "first" in the history of Big Brother:


Big Brother Slapped With Disclaimer — What'd It Say? And Are You Buying What Aaryn's Selling?

by Matt Webb Mitovich and Rebecca Iannucci

CBS further distanced itself from the prejudicial views being expressed by certain Big Brother Houseguests by slapping an advisory on this Sunday’s episode.

(http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h93/dklimach/HHWRFF_1319.jpg)

The installment that followed found Aaryn and Candice openly confronting the former’s racist comments, after she lost HoH and was sent to bunk with her African-American castmate. Hearing Candice complain about the set-up, Aaryn tossed her roomie’s bed, teeing up a tense encounter ‘tween the ladies.

“Whatcha gon’ do, girl?” Aaryn asked, antagonizing Candice. (“When is the black gonna come out?” could also be heard during the fracas –perhaps coming from GinaMarie?)

As Howard and others (including Helen) consoled distraught Candice, Amanda confronted Aaryn and her cohorts about their repulsive ‘tudes — and how their racist remarks could affect them outside the house (which seemed a bit on-the-nose for a random observation, hmm. Already Aaryn and GinaMarie unwittingly have lost jobs, while Spencer’s been censured by his employer).

Aaryn later apologized to Candice and fretted that her “jokes” were being misconstrued as racist. In the Diary Room, Aaryn claimed she was sincere in her apology — while Candice in her own DR piece made clear she didn’t buy that mea culpa for an instant, and will continue treating Aaryn accordingly.

What was your reaction to reading CBS’ viewer advisory, right there in black-and-white? And how about Aaryn’s “I was joking” defense?

Aaryn should be pulled from the show.  Her racial hatred is shocking and BB production should make a stand against it.  I cringe when I watch her and there's no fun in the competition anymore.  :meow:

However if she ends up evicted, it will take all the cool and calm that Julie Chen has to interview her!

On the plus side, she makes Dan and Shelley look tame, and I thought they played a real dirty game.

Helen has a good head on her shoulders and I hope it takes her far in this game.  So far I like the clean game she is playing.  :yess:

I don't think she should be pulled because that will reinforce in her mind her "victim" status.  She really doesn't seem to comprehend just how wrong her words and actions are so pulling her from the game is just going to "prove" to her that CBS set her up to look bad.  She may never get it, but I think leaving her in there to feel the criticism of her housemates until she is evicted and comes out to face the music is the best chance of ever getting her to realize that she may need to change her ways.  Her comments are inexcusable, but it sadly is a realistic portrayal of the way some people feel and (even though I like watching the show) Big Brother really is a microcosm of this country and a lot of the things that are going wrong in it.

If she is simply evicted, she will just feel she is one of the many who eventually get evicted on BB.  She has even commented that evicting her would be the smart thing for them to do (don't have her exact words, but that was the idea.)

However, if they pull her she will become an example of how that kind of racism is not going to be tolerated.  She will become the pariah that she deserves to be.

I don't have the feeds so I'm only going by what I have read on the live feed updates, but it appears that her allies are starting to try and distance themselves from her.  It's possible I'm missing something as I sometimes have a hard time following the updates.  (Not a knock at the folks doing the updates I know it's a hard job.)  If Jeremy goes and Kaitlyn turns her back on Aaryn; then, all she really has left is possibly GinaMarie.  Maybe it's wishful thinking, but if the whole house shuns her before she goes out she might just start to see the light.  The only thing lonelier than being alone is being alone in a house full of people.

The arguments for getting her out through eviction or dismissal are all valid.  It's just a question of which one might have the biggest impact on her.

On a side note, the more I read about GinaMarie the more I think they need to have the men in the white coats waiting for her on her exit.  If I recall correctly, there was talk at one point about how her pageants were everything to her and in the house Nick was everything to her.  Once she finds out that she has lost her job and realizes that he had no interest in her she's going to completely lose it.  While the devilish, sarcastic side of me thinks it would be funny to have Julie tell her that Nick has a special message for her, hand her an envelope and say "GinaMarie you've been served" (would make a good parody - see Will Heuser's youtube channel), the good, kindhearted side of me thinks she is unstable enough to harm herself when everything comes crashing down.

CBS's CEO Les Moonves spoke to the Television Critics Association, and made some comments on the Big Brother Racial issues this season...

TCA: CBS CEO Leslie Moonves Appalled by ‘Big Brother’ Racial Slurs But Defends Show Casting

Deadline.com By LISA DE MORAES, TV Columnist

“I find some of the behavior absolutely appalling,” CBS CEO Leslie Moonves said this morning of this season’s competition series Big Brother, which has been in the news over the racial slurs some of the competitors have been spewing at housemates. The season is reflective “of how many people feel in the country,” he suggested, noting, “I’ve watched every episode — obviously, my wife would kill me if I didn’t — we discuss it quite a bit (Moonves’ wife, Julie Chen hosts).” He insists the network has handled the season “appropriately.” Asked what he and Chen say about this season on the show, Moonves shot back, “I’m not going to tell you what goes on in my home.”

Moonves, who was filling in for CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler at the network’s TCA press tour executive session today, acknowledged he is still hands-on with the network’s reality competition series casting, and utterly dismissed a critics’ suggestion the Big Brother edition is evidence that “casting tries too hard.” “You don’t want wallflowers on reality show,” he said. “They are social experiments — trying too hard? I don’t think there’s any such thing.”

At the top of his Press Tour appearance, Moonves announced CBS had picked up another season of Stephen King’s summer miniseries Under The Dome and that King would write the first episode. When one critic noted people can’t survive under a dome indefinitely, Moonves wondered why not. “This is television! It’s a soap…In a lot of ways it’s Dallas in the future,” he said. The Amazon deal makes that show possible, Moonves said. “The whole model of putting on a big summer show has changed. We had to figure out financially how to put on a show of that size and scale. It came down to, the network license fee had to be small. There was a huge international sale and the participation of Amazon. We had to make a deal like never before.” The international market has become increasingly important, particularly for drama financing, Moonves explained, claiming it has, at CBS, jumped from “about $400 million” to “$1.2 billion” in six years.

Another critic took issue with the heavy product placement in the pilot episode of David E. Kelley’s new Robin Williams comedy The Crazy Ones, which is set at an ad agency. The opening episode is all about making a McDonalds ad. Moonves said that storyline was brought to the network and that “McDonalds didn’t receive any money “ for it. He said the series will also include “fictional product.”

CBS has no plans to replace David Letterman in late-night, though he’s now getting beat in demos by ABC’s new time-slot competitor Jimmy Kimmel. “We love having David Letterman — he’s the dean, the best there is,” Moonves said, adding, “We like the stability – despite what people think, we don’t like drama at 11:30.” One critic noted that even good shows with low ratings get cancelled on CBS in primetime, “I don’t consider David Letterman [show] a failure in any way, shape or form,” Moonves responded, insisting the show continues to make money for CBS.

Asked in the scrum after his Q&A about finishing first in the demo, Moonves acknowledged “it helped that American Idol crashed. We always thought it wasn’t a fair fight with Fox. We had 22 hours, they had 15. It’s a big difference. When three of those hours were a monster like American Idol, we never were gonna win…Still think 18-49 is vastly overrated and exaggerated. Fox News’s average viewer is 65-plus and making a ton of money. So 18-49 wasn’t the be-all and end-all.”

As he walked down the ramp off stage, someone asked Moonves how he felt about this being the final season for CBS’s Monday comedy How I Met Your Mother. “I’m heartbroken” he tossed over his shoulder.

I've never cared for (my usual expletives deleted) Les Moonves and still can't believe Julie Chen married the man.

With that said.....

The racial and homophobic slurs attached to this seasons' BB are unforgiveable and I'm not buying for a minute that my neighbors next door are using them. What a callous and irresponsible thing for a CBS rep to say.

Have they lost their minds?

I remember in the late 60's/early 70's when CBS finally got clearance from the FCC to air Preparation H commercials.

I do have to admit to waiting with bated breath for the reactionary fallout once Spencer, Aaryn, Ginamarie et al, leave the house and face the music. I'm surprised that the studio audience even applauded for Jeremy despite being prompted to do so.

As for me....I'd rather see Aaryn evicted (and soon) to walk out and face Julie amid silence. Aaryn is cluelessly in narcissistic denial and Ginamarie is delusional. I have no excuses for Spencer.

Why haven't we heard outrage regarding Amanda?  She has said horrible racial comments but I haven't seen any backlash from it in the media.  I'm ready for her to go home.

Good question. Lately she's been "talking" as if she is Chinese or perhaps a Vietnamese person who works in a nail salon. It's racist speech just as bad as what Aaryn said.

A Zap2it blog post, "'Big Brother 15': Amanda and GinaMarie let their Asian stereotypes fly; Howard goes to work", had an update that stated Amanda was IMITATING A CHARACTER from Mad TV.

However, I still dislike her and McCrae for not even allowing Aaryn or Judd to be in their HoH room alone for even five minutes. :res:

Oh, I agree about Amanda bee, she has become nastier by the day all the way around and the comment about the taste of certain body parts, ie; Howards' (cocoa and watermelon) was just too unreal.

Who says this stuff?

Amanda.

She rarely rolls out of bed and is probably the most passive/aggressive player. And that angry piercing glare she bears down on you with while trying to "help you" is truly scary.

Apparently America agrees.

I hope that as long as America votes for MVP they keep voting for Amanda.  I think Spencer should be thrown out based on his sexual comments.  I really would be scared of him in Jury especially if I was Jessie.

'Big Brother's' Amanda Zuckerman Makes Racist Comments About Asian And African American House Guests (VIDEO)
Posted: 08/01/2013 6:36 pm EDT  |  Updated: 08/03/2013 4:55 pm EDT

Just when you thought the racism on "Big Brother" couldn't get any worse, house guest Amanda Zuckerman was caught making racist remarks about her African American and Asian American competitors on camera.

"She wore my f---in' head band and didn't ask," Zuckerman said about African American housemate Candice Stewart (above). "She took it off your f---in' head and put it on her greasy-ass, nappy-hair head."

In another instance, Zuckerman referred to African American contestant Howard Overby as "the black mamba" and "the dark knight." She also referred to herself as a "f** hag" and used the term "retarded" on multiple occasions.

Interestingly enough, Zuckerman confronted Aaryn Gries about being racist on camera, which can also be seen in the video above.

This is hardly the first time offensive remarks have been caught on camera throughout the current fifteenth season of "Big Brother." In addition to Gries, GinaMarie Zimmerman has also made racist remarks to or about other contestants on camera.

CBS responded to viewers' anger with the following statement: “'Big Brother' is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 -- and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on 'Big Brother,' either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”

"Big Brother" host Julie Chen wasn't nearly as neutral about the events, however. After showing a particularly upsetting clip of a fight between contestants Candice, Aaryn and GinaMarie on "The Talk," Chen was furious.

"Am I the only one who feels so enraged? This is the third time I've watched that clip, and it does not get any easier," she said. "I think it shows us all that in 2013, race is still a deeply, deeply personal issue and it is so extremely hurtful. And unless you have ever been on the receiving issue end of it, you simply do not know what it's like to walk a mile in someone's shoes."

(h/t The Wrap)

"Big Brother" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET, Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET and Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

A little Amanda is a lot of Amanda. She has manipulated, bullied and monopolized long enough. It is simply time for her to gather her anger issues and her meds (that aren't working) and go.

Her true nature is glaringly apparent and thank goodness McCrea is beginning to see this. I understand why he was smitten by her attentions at first, but......

Talk about the kiss of death. The two are polar opposites!

Come on HGs...WAKE UP

I think they are afraid of her. Hell, I'm afraid of her.

'BIG BROTHER' CONTESTANT Probed By Cops Over CHILD PORN JOKES

 "Big Brother" contestant Spencer Clawson just learned a valuable lesson about child porn ... don't even joke about that crap ... because cops will go after you.

In case you didn't see the clips from this week -- Clawson goes off on this really uncomfortable riff about child porn, saying, "I like to beat off to child porn. Did I ever tell y'all about that? I love it. Beating off to child porn is my favorite thing there is."

You'd think he'd stop there, but no ... he kept going, saying, "I love it when they're around three or four years old. My favorite ones are when you can tell they're in a basement."

And the jokes didn't go unnoticed ... especially by Spencer's hometown police in Arkansas.

Chief AJ Gary from the Conway Police Department in Arkansas tells TMZ, "The Conway Police Department was alerted to comments made.  Due to the nature of the comments, our department moved quickly to look into the matter.  At this time we haven't found that any criminal act was committed."

Good news, but still ... don't make child porn jokes. They're not even funny.

More insensitive remarks on CBS 'Big Brother' show
Aug. 7, 2013, 6:21 PM EST

By DAVID BAUDER
 
NEW YORK (AP) -- A run of ethnically insensitive remarks has continued during filming for the CBS reality TV show "Big Brother," raising questions about whether the network should be doing more to police it.

One of the cast members on the program, which throws a group of people who don't know each other in a house together and films them to see how they get along, made remarks during the past week that could be seen as insulting to various ethnic groups.

On the 24-hour Internet feed of the house, Amanda Zuckerman, who's white, complained about a black cast member putting a headband on her greasy, "nappy-hair head." She referred to another black housemate as "the dark knight" and "the black mamba," mocked the accent of a Korean woman and referred to "Puerto Rican showers," leading to a debate about whether she's racist.

"I'm just joking," said Zuckerman, a 28-year-old real estate agent from Boynton Beach, Fla. "I've had sex with Puerto Rican guys before."

Earlier this summer, two other cast members were heard making anti-black comments.

CBS airs "Big Brother" on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday during the summer, but Zuckerman's remarks haven't appeared on television.

CBS Corp. chief executive Leslie Moonves, whose wife, Julie Chen, hosts "Big Brother," said last week he finds some of the behavior on the show "absolutely appalling."

Public relations executive Joni Hudson-Reynolds, who writes a blog called ebonymompolitics, said young people watch the show and she believes CBS should be doing more to prevent the dissemination of offensive language.

"To just say 'This is reality television, and these are the kinds of things that are said in regular conversations' is not enough," Hudson-Reynolds said. "This is a controlled environment."

Hudson-Reynolds said she watches "Big Brother" with her teenage daughter, considering it a guilty pleasure. She doesn't go online to watch the day-to-day interactions. For people who don't follow it that closely, controversial comments are given greater circulation through compilations that are posted online.

CBS declined to comment further on the insensitive language. It's unclear whether there's a built-in delay on the Internet feed of what is going on in the household that would enable producers to cut off offensive talk.

Moonves, speaking to reporters last week, said he believed CBS was handling the situation appropriately.

"We did not comment on some of the racial things being said until it really affected what was going on in the household," he said.

Author Jennifer Pozner, who wrote "Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV," said she has a hard time believing show producers didn't get exactly what they wanted. A show like "Big Brother" is cast with people to increase the likelihood of table-flipping fights, drunken hook-ups and offensive language, she said.

"You know what  it's appalling, and you created it for that exact reason," Pozner said. "Why should we believe that you as a network did not get exactly what you wanted?"

"Big Brother," now in its 15th season, is averaging 7.1 million viewers per episode this season, up 9 percent over last year, the Nielsen ratings company said.

I can't WAIT to see the reactions of the HGs once they have left the house and realize what they have done to themselves.

Neither can I onthecusp. I'm actually salivating about these monsters getting what's coming to them than finding out who wins the season. There is no one left to root for except Elissa, and even though she's something of a snob, she has really good values. I don't think she'll win though. It will be someone disgusting. Probably one of the racists/bigots and then this season can go in the books as the most vile and disgusting season ever.

I think Elyssa is by far the best candidate for the win.

I have a subscription to Dick at Nite and Kaitlin was one of Dick's guests on the show after the double eviction. It was kinda cool seeing her discuss the remaining house guests. She said there's no one left in that house that she likes except McCrae.

Oh, WOW! Thanks for that...

I've been really curious about what the non jury evicted have been saying about the show to this point and haven't seen much. I would have loved to have heard her interview.

It's been such a train wreck this season and a near blood bath right now.

'BIG BROTHER' AARYN
EVICTED
I'm Not Racist, I'm Just Texan 


(http://ll-media.tmz.com/2013/08/29/0829-aaryn-julie-chen-article-getty-cbs-3.jpg)
Aaryn Gries was  evicted from the "Big Brother" house Thursday night ... and on her way out, she told Julie Chen she's not really a racist, she's just a misunderstood Texan.

Seriously ... Gries -- who mocked Asians, trashed black people and referred to a gay houseguest as a "queer" during her stint on the reality competition show -- had the cojones to look Chen in the face and say, "I did not mean to ever come off as racist."

Here's her ridiculous explanation:

"In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it. I feel how bad it is being seen and how I've come across to people. I don't want to seem like that person."

Aaryn -- who told Julie she doesn't remember ever making a racist comment in the house -- added, "I apologize to anyone I offended for that. That was not meant to be serious and if I said those things, I feel horrible for that. I regret that."

Julie -- being the badass that she is -- didn't let Aaryn off the hook and READ some of the offensive comments right to Aaryn's face as Aaryn sat there like a racist, homophobic deer in headlights.

FYI -- Aaryn still has no idea she's been dropped by her modeling agency over her behavior in the house ... because she's made it to the "jury house" and will remain sequestered from the outside world until the show ends in September.

'Big Rich Texas' Star to Aaryn Gries Texans Are NOT Racist


"Big Brother" star Aaryn Gries embarrassed the entire Lone Star state last night when she blamed her racist remarks from the show on growing up in Texas ... this according to "Big Rich Texas" star Bon Blossman.

In case you missed ... Aaryn was evicted from the "Big Brother" house Thursday night ... and told Julie Chen she's NOT a bigot, despite mocking Asians, putting down black people and calling a gay housemate "queer" during her stint inside the BB house.

Aaryn explained, "In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it."

But according to Bon, Aaryn is talking out of her nicely-toned racist ass -- telling TMZ, "This is NOT how we were raised in Texas."

"I watched 'Big Brother' this season, and was embarrassed that [Aaryn] brought such negative attention to one of the most friendly, welcoming states in the United States."

She added ... "Aaryn's comments were an outrage," and ... "This type of behavior is not tolerated by anybody that I know ... and I was born and raised in Texas." 

Bon thinks what Aaryn really needs is some tough love, saying ... "We can't ignore behavior like that or she won't learn."

Since Aaryn made it to the "Big Brother" jury house, she's still sequestered from the outside world and doesn't know how big of a villain she's become. But it seems she's in for a rude awakening

Welp, she'll be turned over to the Texans soon enough.

The more I think about it Im sure they are trying to clean up Amanda's image. Just look at Julie interview with her, nothing of Amanda's racial attacks, barely touched upon her bullying. Amanda looked so good in that interview, I almost completely forgot what a nut she is. Also, if you believe that the DR coaxed Elissa into trying to save Amanda, why would they? They knew Amanda didn't have the votes to stay? Because Just getting Ellisa, America's favorite to forgive Amanda already made Amanda look better in many people's eyes. I am sure that Amanda an McCrae are gonna be on Amazing Race, as were Jeff/Jordan and Brenchel. This show is scripted here is another story.

I do think things are scripted, but I'm cynical. I also thought Amanda got a good interview after her eviction but there were time problems too with the DE to get in in 60 minutes. I meant to watch Friday for a further interview but forgot.  :iok  She should have gotten an interview like Aaryn did.

I think a lot of things this season have been ignored and swept under the rug. The filthy, perverted things that Spencer talks about all the time. The F bombs that are used, every other word out of some people's mouths. How they can get some of it on the air is beyond me, it must require a huge amount of time cleaning it up. The terrible bashing of Elissa is beyond just talking but borders on insanity. Why the intense hatred for her? Even after she's gone it continues.

This has been the worst season ever, far beyond The Season That Shall Not Be Mentioned. At this point I don't care who wins.

I liked the last sentence in the Grapevine article: "So, shall we take an optimistic attitude, lift our glasses of champagne in a toast to a brighter future for Big Brother!   Even when things look hopeless, hope springs eternal."

But, as I said, I'm cynical...

I don't doubt any of CBS' intent to promote 'McCranda' to appear on TAR. Amanda and McCrea alluded to this.

I also felt Amandas' eviction interview was toned down even with time constraints yet, I really felt that Julie would only let Amanda off the hook......so much.

Amanda was hideous and why CBS threw Elissa under the bus so horribly after a sister Rachel win is unforgiveable.

This idiocracy makes sense in a twisted way......the joke is......it is at the expense of the stupid remaining houseguests who fell for this nonsense.

If McCranda show up on TAR.....I WON'T be watching and my venom will spew forth like Mt Vesuvius.

Judging by my Union, (and I do not have a job that involves peoples safety), he may have gotten a reprimand for one, the free ride, but not for both.
