Big Brother 15 meanie Aaryn Gries is being defended for her racist comments today, by none other than her "Valentine", who happens to be a black man. Shawn Onyechi claims he knows Aaryn Gries from college in Texas, and he says they were close before she left for "Big Brother", according to TMZ on Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Shawn says Aaryn isn't the villain that she was portrayed as on the hugely popular CBS reality show "Big Brother". Although he stopped short of saying that he dated Aaryn, he does say, "they were Valentines this year".
According to Shawn, Aaryn is not the "racist pig" she seemed to be on BB. Shawn even recently tweeted his support for the ousted houseguest, writing that he knows otherwise.
Aaryn infamously uttered on camera several questionably racist and homophobic comments, including her warning to her bff in the Big Brother house to be careful what she says in the dark because, "...you might not be able to see that bitch".
Aaryn was eventually evicted from "Big Brother", and explained live and under the gun from host Julie Chen that she was, "....just a Texan".
