Big Brother” contestant Aaryn Gries hasn’t made many friends in the reality game, and probably won’t have many supporters waiting for her outside the show as well as a result of her remarks on the show, which have been dubbed racist on multiple occasions for insults about African American, Asian American and gay members from the house.

Now, her mother is getting proactive in an effort to to help her daughter, who is obviously oblivious to the controversies as long as she is in the house. The Los Angeles Times reports that the mother has hired a publicist for the college student for damage control, “making Gries perhaps the first contestant in ‘Big Brother’ history to get representation while still living in the house.”

The uproar and headlines caused by her (as well as from some other contestants) remarks has swelled to the point where viewers are demanding that she is dropped from the series and caused host Julie Chen to lash out about her actions. Gries has also lost her job at a modeling agency.

“Big Brother 15″ airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
