‘Big Brother’ Star Aaryn Gries — I’m Working Out My Racist Demons

Exclusive 0920-Aaryn-Gries-cbs
Big Brother” contestant Aaryn Gries is finally coming clean, admitting she talks like a racist … but she insists it doesn”t make her one.

Gries tells our sources she”s been making racial jokes for years  … but had no idea they were offensive because “no one had expressed that I was taken that way.”

Gries says she wishes someone had warned her before going into the BB house …  that making these “jokes” on national TV would paint her as a big ol” racist.

“I am not a racist,” she says, adding, “Sometimes you can say mindless things that will haunt you.”

Guess Aaryn forgot about the gay housemate she called a “queer” … and all the Asian people she mocked … and the African Americans …
