Big Brother

Shelly's Family Receives

Death Threats Over Jeff's Eviction

8/29/2011 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0828_shelly+big_brother_ex_2
"Big Brother" contestant Shelly Moore pissed off America when she voted to evict fan favorite Jeff Schroeder last week -- and now TMZ has learned her family has been receiving death threats from deranged fans because of the move.

Sources close to Shelly tell us ... the reality star's family has received multiple phone calls from people threatening violence ... even making threats against Shelly's 8-year-old daughter.

We're told Shelly's employer has also been receiving harassing phone calls -- demanding the company fire Shelly immediately because of the way she voted on the show.

Sources tell us Shelly's family is preparing to get the FBI involved -- because they're taking the threats VERY seriously.

UPDATE: "Big Brother" Executive Producer Allison Grodner released a statement on Twitter ... saying, "No matter how much you dislike an HG, this is wrong! True BB fans do not try to ruin lives. Please stop!"

Story wrong people aren't mad about that mad at how she treated JOrdan after jordan gave up a phone call to her mom so Shelly could talk to daughter.
Threatening anyones family because they are on tv is disgusting and aterrible.
However, CBS bears a lot of responsibility for how bad they have allowed the HGs to act and talk this year. For example one person thinks may be pregant and other made jokes of having a competition where they throw a medicine ball at her stomach to save her $400 and all laugh and nothing was doen to stop this and some other disgusting comments about abortion and killing fetus. So allowing things to get to this level is as much the fault of CBS as the fans that got riled up because the people saying these things were being blatantly helped by the production team to win the games. Big Brother has certainly been outed this year as not longer able to call itself reality when the show makes things happen to keep people who get the highest ratings and that is what makes people so mad.
THIS HOWEVER DOES NOT EXCUSE ANYONE THREATENING SOMEONE'S CHILD BUT THE WOMAN WHO'S CHILD WAS THREATENED TOOK PART IN THE ABORTION JOKES, MAYBE YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

wow wtf    

Shelly is a delusional, lying, mean-spirited b*tch and what sets her apart from otheryjng, mean spirited a--holes on the show is that they own it whereas she sits there claiming she hates liars, she hates mean people etc. Always claiming the moral high ground while she is the worst of the bunch. She is literally disgusting. THAT BEING SAID, threatening her family, and worse a little girl? Waaaaaay over the line. She opened herself and her family (because she always talks about em, theyve shown em, etc) to some ridicule, but anyone who's threatening their safety is just a sick freak.

I love Jeff & everyone stating that he is a douche or a loser or a low-life or whatever must not actually watch the show because he is far from it. Shelly on the other hand is a sneaky, conniving bitch but regardless of that it JUST A TV show and as much as I yelled at the TV on Thursday I would never threaten her family or her physical safety. I don't want to live in a world where people like this exist.

Jeff and Jordan were more than willing to stab Shelly in the front, back, and side. But, Allison Grodner is just another deranged Jeff and Jordan fan, so she's very careful never to show Jeff's backstabbing, bullying, and Homophobic rants for "America" to see. Now she's rigged the "game" so that Shelly gets evicted Thursday. I strongly dislike Shelly, but I feel bad for her and her family.

I am shocked that someone would send death treats to this family and even more shocked that its because a person got evicted from a game. Looks like people really need to get a life, also Jeff and Jordan is not the sweethearts America thinks they are, there behavior to the other houseguests when there ass is on the line shows you their true colors. Jeff is nothing but a BULLY and the way he puts down Homo-Sexual and Obese people says a lot about his character. Although I can't figure out if his dislike for Khalia is because she is overweight or Black...

I hope CBS informs Shelly of this..It's too important for her not to be aware of...she should have the option of going home to her family, and more importantly her daughter...Some people really are sick,it's a game for God's sake...and what was the fascination with Jeff? He was nothing but a big bully..If she is not told, we know CBS cares only about ratings, and not people...Done with BB
