UPI News Service, 01/25/2007
The British show "Celebrity Big Brother," reeling from complaints of racism, apologized for seeming to favor the person about whom the comments were made.
The "reality" show's producers apologized after appearing to favor keeping on the show Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, one of five housemates up for eviction, which is determined by phone-in voting, Sky News said.
In Wednesday' voting, the telephone number given for four housemates was to evict. The number given for Shetty was to allow her to continue.
