'Big Brother': Shelly Moore's Family Threatened, Her Blow-Up With Jeff Airs
Each week on Big Brother, another houseguest (and sometimes two), are evicted from the house. That's the nature of the game, but after Thursday's double eviction, which saw fan favorite Jeff Schroeder packing, things turned sour.
The family of houseguest Shelly Moore, who is currently competing on the 13th edition of the CBS summer reality series, has received numerous threatening phone calls -- even targeting her young daughter, according to TMZ. Moore's employer has also said that threatening phone calls have been made.
Viewers remember Thursday's episode was a heated one, as she was aligned with "dynamic duo" Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd for most of the game, suddenly flipping sides prior to the live show -- which led to Schroeder's unexpected eviction.
Big Brother executive producer Alison Grodner took to Twitter to tell fans not to endanger the families of the competing houseguests. "No matter how much you dislike an HG, this is wrong! True BB fans do not try to ruin lives. Please stop!," she wrote.
On Sunday's episode, the blow-up between Schroeder and Moore was shown (it took place on Thursday and was referred to by host Julie Chen), with Schroeder telling Moore that he didn't appreciate her playing both sides of the house, telling him that she was just exploring her options. "You've got lots of options, you've got deals with everyone in the house," Schroeder declared. He was evicted 3-2 after HOH Kalia broke the tie. (Moore was one of the houseguests who voted to evict him.)
