'Big Brother' Aaryn


I'm Not Racist, I'm Just Texan

breaking news

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.

Straight Talkin Texan    

As a straight-talkin Texan (ahem), I have to say that this idiot GIRL is an embarrassment to Texans and does NOT speak for all Texans. And she doesn't speak LIKE Texans either, at least in my experience of being born and raised here and still living here. She's disgusting and offensive.

I really could NOT believe she lumped Texans (implying ALL Texans) in the same stinky pile with her. She is gonna hear from LOTS of Texans who don't appreciate her throwing others under the bus as part of a lame excuse for her unacceptable words/behavior. lololol I'm sorry I won't get to hear what she's gonna hear. That is, unless I cross paths with her sorry a$$, and then I'm gonna have fun!

My last comment on the subject, people need to toughen up. Her comments are protected under GREE SPEECH. shouldn't have been fired. She probably isn't a racist, she probably was angry and is guilty of throwing some low blows while arguing. Theres a difference between heat of the moment anger and true HATE for someone with a different skin color.

Think about it.

This is gonna sound bad but I kinda feel sorry for her. In no way does that make what she said OK but I said racist comments before I'm not proud of it but I've said mean things before. I just hope she changes her ways and doesn't kill herself.
