Talent agency drops 'Big Brother' houseguest Aaryn Gries for racist, homophobic comments

Not the kind of exposure she was looking for.


Not the kind of exposure she was looking for.

Anyone watching this season's Big Brother knows that Aaryn Gries has said more than a few racist things. Her modeling agency has, too, so they're dropping her ASAP. Somebody be sure to tell her when she gets out of the house.

TMZ says after Gries called a gay roommate "queer," told an Asian-American castmember to "shut up and go make some rice" and saying of a black house guest, "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that b---," Gries has pretty much worn out her welcome. Austin, Texas-based Zephyr Talent has heard enough.

"Aaryn, season 15 cast member of Big Brother, revealed prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone," the agency told the site in a statement. "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." At least she'll have all the friends she made on the show.
