Big Brother producers told Ariana Grande's brother Frankie that his grandfather passed away in a rare case of breaking the reality show's trademark "quarantine."

The whole house rallied around Frankie when he heard of the tragedy.

Frankie Grande's grandpa died on Tuesday, but Ariana Grande, his pop star sister, listened to his last wish and kept his passing secret from Frankie.

This request was with the hope that he would continue on the show and not let it affect him, but Wednesday, producers passed a note to Frankie.

After learning of the sad news, Frankie broke down in tears.

Some of the other house guests on the program were crying too as he revealed the news to them, in what was a very unusual moment for Big Brother.

And you thought the Kardashians were desperate for fame!

Josie Cunningham is a 23-year-old "model and call girl" from the UK who wants so badly to appear on the UK version of the popular reality series Big Brother that she plans to terminate her 18-week pregnancy.

Josie spoke with London's Daily Mail this week and revealed her plans to have an abortion while "smoking a cigarette and rubbing her baby bump."

Classy lady or the classiest lady? Josie explains her decision thusly:

"I'm finally on the verge of becoming famous and I'm not going to ruin it now. An abortion will further my career. This time next year, I won't have a baby. Instead, I'll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house."

Under intense scrutiny for her conduct all summer on CBS, Big Brother 15 star Aaryn Gries is finally coming clean, admitting she talks like a racist.

STILL, she insists this doesn't make her one though.

The reality star tells TMZ she's made racial jokes for years, but had no idea they were offensive because "no one had expressed that I was taken that way."

So ... does that mean all her friends and family are also racist?

Aaryn apologized for throwing the whole state of Texas under the bus when Julie Chen grilled her after her eviction, saying she was in "defense mode."

Big Brother 15 has come to an end. Now the fallout has begun.

Only after Andy Herren won the $500,000 grand prize awarded to the Big Brother winner did several of his competitors realize the fallout of their actions.

Aaryn Gries, Spencer Clawson, Andrea Zuckerman and GinaMarie Zimmerman are speaking out on losing their jobs this summer while on Big Brother.

In taking the brunt of the flak from the scandal after referring to several houseguests using racial and gay slurs, model Aaryn was dropped by her agency.

With two publicists in tow Wednesday night, Gries addressed her actions: "I definitely was shocked with how serious things were taken," she told THR.

"Some of the things were taken out of context but either way, I definitely regret saying those things. I never wanted to hurt or offend anyone."

Andy Herren, your Big Brother 15 winner, laid low during much of the season on CBS, aligning with the power players and not ruffling any feathers.

That turned out to be a key to his surprise victory.

After the finale aired Wednesday evening in Studio City, Calif., Herren spoke about his win, his game play and thoughts on the season's big controversies.

Excerpts from his chat with THR below ...

On his goals going in: "Don't get voted out first. Make it to four votes. Survive this double eviction. Stuff like that. So every week, I felt I got closer and closer."

"I thought that I had the chops to [win] ... I always had my eye on the prize throughout the whole season and I thought I played a very meticulous game."

On why he took GinaMarie to the finals: "GinaMarie is my very close friend, but I almost would say Spencer was an even closer friend to me in the house."

The winner of Big Brother 15 has been crowned at last. Did Andy Herren, GinaMarie Zimmerman or Spencer Clawson walk away with the top prize?

Let's find out how this controversial season ended ...

We joined the final Head of Household battle in Round 1, where Spencer Clawson was out pretty quickly and Andy Herren went out shortly thereafter.

GinaMarie Zimmerman had the upper hand heading into Round 2, but Andy eventually won the final Head of Household and faces a tough debate.

He felt GinaMarie deserved to be in the finals (and vice versa), but bringing Spencer to the finals would guarantee victory. Because it's Spencer Clawson.

Big Brother star Aaryn Gries' mother is defending her foul-mouthed little girl, claiming she can't be racist because she took a black guy to the high school prom.

Seriously. Gotta love that time-honored, always-effective (not) defense.

Gries was evicted from Big Brother and immediately grilled last week, offering some of the laments excuses for her conduct you could ever imagine.

Still, Aaryn's mom is by her side, citing the black prom date and also pointing out that the reality star once dated a "Cuban American." So THERE!

Oh, and she says the Big Brother 15 star sponsored a Filipino child through a charity and "she has cousins of Japanese descent who she truly loves."

As for gays, Aaryn Gries "has never discriminated against anyone for sexual orientation whether within our family or not. Aaryn truly loves all people equally."

Aaryn Gries was finally evicted from the Big Brother house Thursday night, and was promptly grilled by Julie Chen about her comments this summer.

Her explanation, in abridged form?

She's not racist, she's just Texan!

Aaryn Gries, of course, mocked Asians, African-Americans AND homosexuals this season. Frequently, and often seeming to take pleasure in doing so.

She had to know the reckoning was coming, but when she said "I did not mean to ever come off as racist," well, the audience laughed in her face.

And booed. A lot.

The longer explanation: "In Texas, we say things. Sometimes we joke and we don't mean it. I feel how bad it is being seen and how I've come across to people."

Yes, someone else was racist on Big Brother.

The dishonor this time belongs to Amanda Zuckerman, who showed her true colors (so to speak) after an altercation with competitor Candice Stewart.

Amanda, one of the most powerful people in the Big Brother house (and with the ego to go with it), had it out with Candice, one of the least powerful.

Their argument was built on a foundation of ongoing drama, but culminated in Amanda yelling at Candice: “That’s the Shaniqua coming out of you, I guess!”

As if the implications of that comment weren't obvious, or in case you thought she didn't care, Amanda followed that up with: “Am I racist now? I’m racist now.”

Who would have guessed Spencer Clawson joking about child porn would have competition for most cringe-worthy moment of the week on Big Brother?
