Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Big Brother 15 has been consumed by controversy with several houseguests spewing hateful and racist remarks every chance they get. Aaryn Gries, a 22-year-old college student/model from Texas, has been denounced by fans of the show and mainstream media, which led to the end of her modeling contract, for her ignorance.
Of course, the uncensored live feeds clearly show that Aaryn is not alone, but CBS has decided that she shall be the poster child for everything that's wrong with Big Brother 15. (Please don't think I feel sorry for her – I do not.)
Howard Overby, a 29-year-old youth counselor from Mississippi, was targeted by Aaryn (Head of Household) and Amanda Zuckerman (Queen of Bullydom) and evicted on Thursday. Immediately following his eviction, Howard told Julie Chen, enduring racism inside the Big Brother house was the "hardest thing in the world."
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!
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!"
In the diary room, Amanda once said, "I'd say on top of Aaryn being a raging bitch, she's very naive and sheltered, and she makes comments that are completely inappropriate where she makes fun of other people for what they look like and their ethnicity," adding, "I think it's going to hurt her a lot — in the game and outside the game."
Don't get me wrong, Amanda is right, everything she says about Aaryn is dead on. However, she is also a hypocrite, and the video evidence (for non feed watchers) is finally on YouTube.
On the video, Amanda says about Candice Stewart, "She wore my f–king headband and didn't ask. She took it off your f–king head and put it on her greasy-ass, nappy-hair head." Y'all, it gets worse, much worse. Amanda is a mean, unscrupulous person.
I don't think I have to tell y'all how flipping excited I am!
Following the birth of her daughter, Whitney said, “It was surreal seeing Rhythm Myer for the first time after having her to myself for nine months. I wasn't sure if I was ready to share her with the world, but she is my life and I love her more than words can express. I am truly excited to be a mother!”
What does Bonnie think about all these changes? Read on!
