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."

"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Next thing you know, we'll learn how Chilltown is filling about it (not expecting Will do say anything per say, but you know Boogie will give his two cents.)

Tried to watch that show last night because of all the controversy. Couldn't figure out who were the racists so assumed they all were. Turned it cuz it sucks watching a bunch of racists with snarky attitudes.

well, for the most part, it's what people don't say, that is far worse. this is just some bias hyper political correctness. sure, it's hateful and outrageous, but it is not some 'hidden undercurrent' 'i'm going to swallow my hostility and hatred, because i am going to keep my job this way'. there is hopefully a better way to deal with this than punishment. this only leads to even worse extremes from suppressing such feelings.

Jeez, this must be a sign of the end times when I first found myself cheering for Rachel during her last season and NOW am agreeing with her and her hubby over this.

Guess it goes to show you don't know people from just seeing them on TV, it only shows heavily edited parts. The REAL person is ALWAYS more than that.

Hated Rachel, but learned to understand her and eventually root her on when she won. Was actually happy for her, as we saw a NICE side of her come out that we hadn't seen.

They are dead right and if BB production and CBS had ANY sense, they'd gather up ALL the guests and LAY DOWN THE LAW.

This is just starting, can you imagine what this will be in another 2 months if they don't tamp it down now??

They may think is nice ratings but they are playing with fire....

Add Amanda to that list of racist homophobic idiots. I have watched BB over the years, but after watching the first episode and the BBAD I cannot continue to watch. Sorry but in today's society this should not be condoned and Spencer, Amanda, Aaryn, Ginamarie, Jeremy and McCrae should all of been evicted for the vile, racist, homophobic and hate filled comments about women. It is another year of idiots like that Frank jerk last year who made a comment about raping one of the other contestant's wives and yet CBS let him continue to stay on the show.

I have to say that this season of BB has been a major disappointment.
The surfer dude actually gives California beach bums a bad name.
David will be gone after tonight's eviction...thank God!

Neither Rachel nor Brendon were pillars of virtue and good taste while on BB. Rachel made many hateful and racist comments while on BB, and so did Brendon.

I've been pleasantly surprised that Elissa is the exact opposite of Rachel (so far). Initially I came very close to changing the channel the moment I found out that Rachel's sister was to be a houseguest.

I think it's disgraceful that others don't let people speak their mind
