Agree. And while I do think she's said a lot of things that no one should ever say, I don't believe she's a racist, but rather someone who's heard lots of stuff like that all her life and didn't fully realize the implications. I do think that like many her age, she has a mean girl side and the insults and put downs often include things that cross the line into racism - but I don't think it's been intentional on her part. Too me, she says "go make rice" to an Asian person the same way she'd say "go eat rice" to a fat person. Neither is nice of course, but the point is that I don't think she realizes that some of what she says crosses that racist line. But I do think, given the way she's been able to completely turn herself around in the game, that she's capable of learning from all this. I think after the initial shock and emotion of losing her contracts and the public reaction, I think she could very well learn from this and change her ways in the future. Word was that her family hired a PR person - probably to deal with the media bugging the family as much as anything, and because they are apparently private to the point that they did not sign CBS's waivers - and if that person is any good they will find a way for Aaryn to give some carefully placed interviews in the weeks following the show. If she is humble and shows that she fully understands things and carries herself with poise, I think she might get herself an entertainment career after all - especially if she uses the opportunity to try and do some good out there. And wouldn't CBS do well but supporting her rehabilitation/redemption - Julie could invite her on The View for a heart to heart when all the dust has settled, and if it goes well, it could do everyone a lot of good.
