Aaryn Gries made headlines for all the wrong reasons this summer, appearing on Big Brother and coming across as a racist homophobe.

She made fun of an Asian-American contestant. She talked black when confronting an African-American housemate. She was fired from her modeling job for basically being a terrible human being.

And yet even Gries thinks Evander Holyfield went too far this week.

  • Evander Holyfield for Big Brother

The ex-boxer has come under major fire for saying on the UK's celebrity version of this awful reality show that homosexuality is a handicap that should be fixed by a doctor.

Evander Holyfield may have made his living as a professional fighter, but son Ewin says his dad is really just a lover.

Yes, even of gay people.

The ex-Heavyweight Champion made headlines over the weekend when he said on UK Celebrity Big Brother that homosexuality is a handicap that can be fixed by a physician.

But Ewin Holyfield tells TMZ that his father is deeply religious and was merely expressing a biblical belief.

Evander Holyfield, a former Heavyweight Champion who made a living knocking opponents around in the ring, pulled no punches this weekend in a controversial clip from UK Celebrity Big Brother.

Speaking to housemate Luisa Zissman, Holyfield referred to the bible and said homosexuality is not a choice. He added that being gay is a "handicap" and the condition can be fixed by a doctor.

In the following footage, the ex-athlete is taken aside and berated by producers for his "inappropriate" comments, which Holyfield acknowledges could be offensive. But he doesn't offer an apology.

For the record:

Holyfield has fathered 12 children by six women, has been divorced three times and was held in contempt of court in 2012 for failing to pay over 500K in fatherhood.

He was also accused three years ago of beating his wife because she didn't put God first.

Less than a week after saying Dr. Phil was "the only one" who could save his troubled marriage, Evander Holyfield now refuses to go on the blowhard's talk show.

Over the weekend, the former boxing champ and wife Candi Holyfield were flown first class to L.A. by the show’s producers and put up at a hotel in Hollywood.

But a private meeting between the couple and Dr. Phil at the host's Beverly Hills estate to discuss the format of their interview quickly turned into a disaster.

“The truth is Evander did not like Dr. Phil and what he was proposing," a source said. “There was a clash of personalities. He felt he was totally man-bashing him."

Whatever that means, it can't be good!

Unfortunately, no physical blows were exchanged.

The Holyfields were also put off by Dr. Phil's wife Robin who "was floating around the house entertaining other guests inside their massive mansion."

The Holyfields' issues began earlier this month when Candi asked for a protective order, claiming Evander hit her during an argument in their home.

Candi wanted him to turn up the thermostat and he allegedly beat her for not putting God first. There's something in the Bible about thermostats.

She later asked for the restraining order to be lifted. In order to rebuild their image, they reached out to Dr. Phil last week ... but that went south.

“He’s not the type of guy who likes to feel bullied," says a source. "That was what Dr. Phil was trying to do and it wouldn’t help his marriage one iota."

Troubled boxing champion Evander Holyfield and his wife Candi are reaching out to the only man they say can solve their domestic woes: TV blowhard Dr. Phil!

Seriously. They feel the way to resolve their marriage issues - she wants him to turn up the heat, he beats her for not putting God first - is through his format.

Candi Holyfield filed, but then agreed to drop a request for a protective order against Evander over that incident. Today, they issued a joint statement saying:

"We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the only one who can help us at this time."

The ONLY one who can help them. They wrote this.

"We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way."

If you're Evander and Candi Holyfield, why resolve your private issues with a real therapist when you can do so on TV with this guy running the show?

Sometimes, Christianity is subject to interpretation. Some believe the death penalty is immoral, for example; others feel it is the only just solution at times.

Beating your wife because she isn't "putting God first," however? It's hard to see a way in which Christ would justify that one. Sorry, Evander Holyfield.

The former world heavyweight champ always made it clear he had no plans to retire from fighting - we just didn't know he was referring to the bedroom!

His current and third wife, Candi Holyfield, called the police after the couple got into a fight at their home last week. It all started because it was cold.
