Amber Ignites "Big Brother" Controversy

Hey, remember earlier this year when a contestant on "Celebrity Big Brother" in the United Kingdom made some racially charged comments about Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty and the incident ignited a firestorm around the world? A similar such dispute is gaining momentum here in the U.S. with our very own "Big Brother 8." Remarks made on the live Internet feeds on Monday by Amber Tomcavage to Jameka Cameron are being blasted across the Internet.

Wonder if Amber's controversial chatter will make it into Thursday's live show? Or if she'll use her vote to evict Jewish contestant Eric Stein, who's up on the block? Word on the Internet is that Amber, a Las Vegas cocktail waitress and single mother who's said she used illegal drugs in the past, blew up in Eric's face Wednesday because he apparently threatened to reveal a secret she told him. We don't think anybody expected this type of "Big Brother" beef. We thought that banner thing was dramatic enough!
