More and more, Big Brother host Julie Chen is opening up about the hate inside the Big Brother house this season, and she seems to be most offended by Aaryn Gries. Rightfully so! Aaryn – along with GinaMarie Zimmerman – has been fired from her job since entering the Big Brother house. Of course, she's still sequestered, so she has no idea!
I look forward to the day that Aaryn and GinaMarie are forced to face the consequences of their hate. For the same reasons, I cannot tolerate Amanda Zuckerman, and I hope she gets evicted sooner rather than later.
Anyway, back to Julie's thoughts on Aaryn, who has personally attacked African-American, Asian-American, and gay BB15 houseguests. "The fact that a young person in this day and age would engage in such racism is very disturbing," said Julie. "When I was growing up in Queens in the '70s, I heard 'chink' and 'ching-chong' and they pulled their eyes – but that was in the '70s!"

"It's crazy; it's our 15th cycle of the show," added Julie. "I've got to hand it to her [Aaryn]. We've had people of all ages, from all parts of the country and from all walks of life, yet we've never had someone who's so in the dark about their intolerance for people who are not like them. That's kind of shocking to me."
As we all know, Julie interviews each evicted houseguest on the live Thursday night episode, and she'll eventually have to face Aaryn. Julie admitted, "Every week I struggle with: Is this going to be her week that she's coming out?"
“Every week I modify the questions I'm working on," shared Julie. "I'm going to have a guideline. But I also have to go with my gut because it's live television. I want to be fair and open-minded and want to be able to make her feel comfortable enough where she speaks the truth and doesn't say what she feels she has to say to cover her butt.”
Julie doesn't think Aaryn intentionally says things to hurt people, adding, "There's a big level of ignorance there. I need to shine a light on that a little bit, but not in a harsh way. In an eye-opening way, so she can say, 'Wow, was I that hurtful to so many groups of people?'”
Julie went on to say that Aaryn most likely surrounds herself with like-minded people or people who are too afraid to speak up to her. Aaryn's only hope, according to Julie, “You need a family member – like her mom or a mom figure – to say, 'We love you and we support you, but here's why you were wrong. You were wrong, you were so wrong.'”
Julie concluded, "As a 22-year-old girl, she has no idea what kind of — pardon my French — sh-t storm is coming.”
Aaryn's mother has reportedly hired a publicist to help with "spin control" once Aaryn is evicted. Smart move. She's definitely going to need it. I wonder if mom has updated her daughter's resume … she's going to need that too.
