‘Big Brother’ Aaryn EVICTED — I’m Not Racist, I’m Just Texan

Breaking News 0829_aaryn_julie_chen_article_getty_cbsAaryn 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.”

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.
