Big Brother 15 News: Aaryn Gries' Mom Hires a PR Firm

I've written over the past month about the racist slurs that have been bandied about on Big Brother 15 this summer. CBS initially pretended that it wasn't going on, but has really embraced the racism storyline over the past week or so on its network programming.

Houseguest Aaryn in particular has been singled out as the villain in this particular situation, but if you read this thread you will note that she hasn't been the only Houseguest in the Big Brother House making racist, sexist, and heterosexist slurs. As recently as this past weekend, Houseguest GinaMarie said that Candice should go back to Africa. That was after she got into an argument with Candice and threatened to let "the black" out.

Anyway, I learned yesterday that a professional PR firm has been hired to help Aaryn out when she eventually leaves the reality TV show and learns that she has inadvertently cast herself as the racist villain of the Big Brother House:
Sources for the series said the mother of Gries, who lives in San Angelo, Texas, has already hired a publicist for the 22-year-old college student, making Gries perhaps the first contestant in “Big Brother” history to get representation while still living in the house.

Gries has already lost her job at a modeling agency as a result of the remarks. While she is still isolated and unaware of her dismissal, her mother is aware of the firing and is taking steps to redeem her daughter’s reputation.
I'm really interested how they will spin Aaryn's tale to try to make this all look less bad. My guess? They will point out incidents of other Houseguests' racism and say that she was afraid that she would be targeted for eviction if she didn't make similar comments, which "of course" she totally does not agree with!

It should be interesting...
