PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) - It's clear some fans of the CBS reality show Big Brother are not pleased with the actions of the show's contestant from Louisiana.

Shelly Moore, who lives in Prairieville, Louisiana, is the oldest contestant on the show.   Her moves during a recent episode also made her one of the most controversial contestants of the season.

Shelly had previously aligned herself with two fellow contestants named Jeff and Jordan.  However, after realizing she might have a hard time beating those two, Shelly helped to orchestrate a plan to get Jeff voted out of the Big Brother house.   The plan worked and some fans of Big Brother were not pleased.  

At least one of Shelly's relatives has received several phone calls from people upset about Shelly's actions, a person familiar with the situation said.  A website related to the show also had several entries from fans who were upset with Shelly as well. 

The Executive Producer of Big Brother sent a Twitter message urging fans to keep things in perspective and remember that it is only a game.  "No matter how much you dislike a HG (house guest), this is wrong!," said the Twitter message from producer Allison Grodner.  "True BB (Big Brother) fans do not try to ruin lives.  Please stop!," the message said.

A celebrity website, TMZ.COM reported Sunday that Shelly's family members were preparing to get the FBI involved.  However, an FBI spokeswoman said Monday that the FBI has not been asked to investigate.

Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley also said his agency is not investigating.   Shelly's family lives in Ascension Parish.   "While we are under NO obligation to divulge whether we are or are not investigating, the answer is no….. at this time," Wiley said in an emailed response to WAFB.
