All those blows to the head have finally taken its toll on Evander Holyfield. The 51-year-old boxer is in hot water for making insanely stupid homophobic comments on television. Holyfield compared homosexuality to a disability, saying both can be treated by a doctor. He made the offensive remarks on U.K.’s Celebrity Big Brother to fellow contestant, reality star Luisa Zissman when she asked him if there were any gay boxers.

“That ain’t normal!” he says. “The Bible lets you know what’s wrong and what’s right.” He continued with “If you were born, and your leg was turned this way, what do you do? Go to the doctor and get it fixed…The only thing I’m trying to tell you is you know how handicapped people, you can’t say because they’re born that way you can’t move that…Yes, it is a choice.”

Knowing Evander was most likely going to get reprimanded by producers, Zissman tried to change the subject and told him this type of conversation was inappropriate for the house. Even with the warning, he didn’t let up.

As expected, the boxing legend got a talking to by producers. Unlike the US version of Big Brother, UK producers often inform houseguests if they’re making offensive remarks. Watch what they said to Holyfield below and his reaction. Who would’ve ever guessed that ear-munching Mike Tyson would be the more tolerable of the two ;)

With Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt in London that past little while, the rumors were already circulating that they’d be in this new season of Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. Now, with the official cast revealed, the rumors turned out to be true and it looks like it’s going to be one hell of a season.

The new season debuted on Thursday on Channel 5 in the UK and nearly 3.5 million people tuned in, down from 5.1 million who watched in 2011. I so wish we were able to watch Celebrity Big Brother here in North America. I wouldn’t mind seeing how Speidi fairs in their return to Reality TV and I also wouldn’t mind seeing Sam Robertson, the hot model/actor in the house, wearing as little as possible. The series is expected to last three weeks, with the first eviction due on Wednesday.

Without further delay, check out the new cast of Celebrity Big Brother below.

Meet the cast after the jump…

On the heels of Luke Anderson winning Big Brother UK, a new set of house mates are ready to enter the eye and live inside the walls of the Big Brother house. This time around, it’s another Celebrity Edition. While here in the US, we’ve had an All-Star version, we’ve never been graced with a “celebrity” series. I guess they’re all booked up doing shows like “Dancing With The Stars” or any of the vocal talent shows. But, one American reality star has managed to find his way into the UK house.

Like any celebrity edition of a show, you look at the list of names and you go, “who are these people?” For the fact that I don’t live in the UK or watch a lot of UK television, I was pretty impressed that I knew who half of the house mates were. What I love is that this mix of celebs is sure to bring the drama this season as they seemed to cast quite the polarizing crew. I’ve given you a quick preview of three celebs above but you can check out the entire lot and vote for your favorite below.
