Big Brother

Shelly's Family Receives

Death Threats Over Jeff's Eviction

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

"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!"

I just don't like any of the contestants this year. I stopped watching it until Brendon was voted off the show. And was so happy to see Jeff get the boot too. But as far as wanting someone dead, that is terrible. Is CBS blowing this up for ratings?
I've noticed that the player CBS wants to win a comp, doesn't get the full treatment that the other players get.
Jeff didn't have hardly any foam when they were doing the bubbles. And the very first comp, Rachel didn't have much sprayed on her banana. Easy to win when you have help. The show is rigged. Pay close attention to the comps.

Please lets be fair...Shelly hate is NOT because she screwed Jeff & Jordon! It is because of her over the top SELF-RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION! Shelly holds herself out as morally superior, or more righteous than others; smugly virtuous? By pointing out the errors of everyone else Shelly is attempting to position herself as better than all of them. Psychologically speaking those who are most susceptible to self-righteous indignation are: people with low self esteem, people who are unhappy in their lives, people who are frustrated with where they are in life. By finding someone she believes to be less than or worse than herself and condemning them, Shelly manages to feel some sort of superiority. I initially was a fan of Shelly, but as she has shown her TRUE colors I am frankly disgusted by her. What did it for me was Shelly attacking Rachel's "character" incessantly to every BB houseguest. Shelly has gone so far as to claim that Rachel is preggers and then wishes for a medicine ball abortion. Talk about sick game play. She is just plain vindictive. Who does that? At this point in the game, I pray Rachel wins.

Shelly is beyond indignant about others talking behind her back...YET we see her doing the same thing two seconds later! LOL! Shelly continually says SHE does not lie – doesn’t she realize thousands are watching her? Who does she think she is fooling?

So, Shelly lies while playing Big Brother. EVERYONE lies playing BB. It is not that Shelly lies, backstabs, and manipulates...but the WAY she does it and the WAY she presents herself!

Add that Shelly uses her daughter as a way to manipulate the other HG’ is no wonder fans have turned against her. Before BB13 ends her family and friends will be against her, too. Please CBS...spare Shelly anymore embarrassment and fan hate! Stop her self-destruction...EVICT her!

With that said, I do feel bad for her family. But, please, they had to have known Shelly is this cut-throat. So sad, really, since it is just a game...

No body should be surprised over what anyone in today's world would do. Only idiot's can't see what bullies Jeff and Jordan are. First off fake breasted Jordan is not this sweet person that everyone thinks she is. She is just a good faker. Jeff is a hot tempered a-hole that was so pissed the night he got voted out that he was shaking with anger like a crazy man.Their greed amazes me,they both have won so much money it ridiculous,when the rest of us are wondering how we are going to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I saw right through both these self centered people long ago.Wake up America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeff isn't that well liked--he is liked but not really hugely with BB fans--sounds more like this is a person disgruntled with Shelly in her real life and just using this show to get back at her cause she is not a liked HG.

I know I have read weird things on the internet from trolls on all kind of forums saying ghastly things but telephone calls --they should contact the FBI because it may have nothing to do with BB.

yes I am a shelly hater, but would never go so far as to threaten her or her family, I do feel bad that her little girl has to go through this crap, shelly should have realized that what she did and how she acted could unfortunally have reprocussions on her family, again tho I hate shelly for how she is acting and playing, I do feel so very sorry for her daughter josie and her family

Absolutely ridiculous. She may not be a favorite on the show for me, but really? The number of deranged people in this world is absolutely terrifying. God help us all!

How do we know that her husband isn't behind this or Shelly's family and plans to sue BB cause Shelly will be leaving and lose the money. Who knows it may be a plot. I say BB should contact the police to investigate

Good, take it off the air and make people stop tweeting about this show. Where do these people find the time to watch horrible television 3 hours a day and some suckers even pay to watch this crap.

Any fan who takes the actions from a TV show and decides to seek personal revenge is just sick as hell and in desperate need of a straight jacket. That being said, this is NOT about Shelly voting Jeff out. The list of Shelly's despicable moves in the name of "game play" is so long and vulgar, It would take all day and really, who gives a ****? If you watch the show, you already know, if you don'*****ch, you don't care. But I agree with some others who have said, WHY did she sign up for this and more importantly, why adopt the strategy she did? Shelly is a longtime fan, she knows how crazy the fans can get when you play a dirty game. Also, clearly, the woman is wealthy. So it wasn't for financial gain. She uses her child CONSTANTLY to brag about her integrity and morals "Josie is watching, and I've taught her never to lie. We lead by example, blah blah blah." Meanwhile, lying incessantly while swearing up and down she never lies...part of the game? Absolutely but this crazy bitch even goes in the Diary Room and lies to production! She believes her own lies. I don't understand how she passed the psych evaluation, to be perfectly honest. Again, she's done so many things that would horrify anyone, ESPECIALLY her 8 year old daughter who IS watching and pleaded with her mommy on National TV to "stop lying and just pick a side." My last straw with Shelly was 2 days ago; she said she hopes the Veto competition involves throwing a medicine ball and haha, wouldn't it be funny if it hit Rachel in the stomach. (Rachel is another contestant who is rumored to be pregnant.) Is it gameplay to wish a miscarriage on someone... WITH YOUR 8 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WATCHING? She is by far the most reprehensible piece of **** I've ever seen on reality TV.

NO, I would never want a person like that working for me. Does that mean I'd call her employer, UH, NO... i'm not a psycho like Shelly Moore! Back off, people. It's fun to watch and yell at your TV and be glad your only association with that s***bag tranny wannabe is through your TV but anything beyond that is just sick.

It had nothing at all to do with the fact that she voted off Jeff. We knew that was going to happen. It is Shelly herself that has cause the intense dislike. She has behaved in a manner that is vile. BB and all other reality shows have had vile characters in the past. Most the time we give them a little nod for picking that as their game plan. The difference is those people have owned up to and most the time enjoyed their title as a mean/loud/backstabbing/cruel/lying/horrid person. Shelly is that way and still crying to everyone that she is honest, has integrity, is playing the game the best possible way, is a good role model for her child. That is why people are upset! She has stolen, talked about hoping Rachel's baby dies, and done all the things she hopes her daughter never does. No one should get death threats over it .. but please be clear it has very little to nothing to do with Jeff being voted out.
