    Apparently Shelly's family is receiving death threats for getting Jeff booted.

    Article

    Some viewers need to get a life.

    It was nice that they went back to fill in some of the back story of the drama from the eviction..

    Idiots. I think shelly played it wrong, but it indeed is the best play for her to win the game.

    World are full of crazy people.

    Last night's episode was pretty good. They managed to pack a lot into one hour.

    Shelly's slip was pretty bad. At that point she knew she was caught and still kept lying. She's so friggin' untrustworthy!!

    That Pandora's box was put in place just in time to give Rachel and Jordan a chance to stay.

    She lied just like Jeff lied to Rachel about throwing the one comp that sent her [annoying voice] fiance [/annoying voice] packing. Makes me even happier he's gone. Hopefully Jordan follows sooner than later.

    Stinks for her family and her (after she leaves the house) that she has to put up with people in the real world that don't understand this is a game. Everyone in all of these reality type shows (survivor, etc) that makes it a few weeks into the game has lied/deceived someone at some point and time. If they say they haven't then they're lying.

    I was never a "fan" of Shelly (and still not) but she did nothing wrong other than not lie well enough.

    Shelly has always claimed to play a game of high integrity and never lieing to show her daughter what a good role model she is. She has not done that at all, so that's what bothers me/most others about her. If you are going to lie, fine. But don't claim you are a wonderful person and doing this for your daughter, including in the DR, where the other HGs can't hear you.

    Shelly looks to me like she's had a hard life of smoking and drinking. She probably has trouble remembering what she said to who.

    Indeed it was, but as Kalia essentially said...WTF are you doing opening Pandora's Box? She didn't have to open it.

    I don't watch the live feeds, I go to the Live Feed thread to read about it. SHe may have raved about her "integrity" for hours and hours but I wouldn't doubt some people have exaggerated that. It doesn't matter though. People that worship Jeff (or Jeff and Jordan) apparently skew reality.

    Bottom line is she hasn't done anything drastically different than hundreds of other reality "stars". She was probably just keeping her options open in case she needed to switch sides or make a big move. In this case she made the best move possible and she advanced, Jeff didn't. In the end it may bite her in the butt though.

    Yeah, that kinda thing cracks me up.

    You can say you have integrity and don't lie in real life but you'll lie like crazy in this house. That's a perfectly good answer.

    Heck, even kids play games (like the card game ********) that involve lying.

    Can someone please tell me why Rachel was crying like a baby after Jeff got evicted. Jeff is Jordan's boyfriend and Rachel wasn't evicted. Can someone please smack her?

    You never met cray cray Rachel have you ;) Rachel thinks she is the comp master and its a cold realization when you're found out not to be.

    BTW what happened to people expressing their anger/frustation with plane banners. Did the FAA put a stop to it?

    As I recall, people don't spend the money to fly planes near the house anymore since now BB sends the HG's inside if a plane with a banner starts coming near the house.

    I think that's her problem, I truley beleive that she thinks she never suggested a final 3 to brachel but from video clips it was obvious she did.

    I thought he video clip showed her mentioning a final three but never actually "making a deal". Maybe youtube has a clip of it to prove my memory wrong.

    Was I the only one cracking up when they were showing everyone crying? It was HILARIOUS!!!! Funniest episode of the season, IMO.

    As for Shelly, I will requote what I said in the live feed thread for those of you who don't go in there (there are no spoilers):

    See, I don't have a problem with the lying because it is part of the game. There have been plenty of other HG's with kids, and they have all had to lie.

    The problem I have with Shelly - the reason her lies bother me more than other HG's lies (and they have ALL lied), is that she is constantly talking about her integrity - she makes a HUGE issue out of it. CONSTANTLY. She is the self-appointed morality police in there - deeming who is worthy of being considered a "good person". Which makes her look like a big hypocrite - and I don't respect hypocrites.

    If she just played her game, lies and all, she would be brilliant. This is how you win BB when you can't compete - you develop a good social game and lie your ass off.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of crazy nutcases out there saying and doing terrible things to her and her family. Leave her kid out of it - it's a freaking game show. None of us have the right to judge her personal life, IMO, or tell her how to raise her kid. That's just crazy. Really. It's a TV show, for crap sake...

    That's why I said suggesting. Her contention was that she never talked about a final 3 to them.

    I understand. I was implying that I thought some of the other houseguests said she had a final 3 deal whereas I thought the video clip was just a mention and not an actual deal. Sorry i didn't word it correctly.

    And I just don't get the whole "integrity" thing. Obviously she brought it up and maybe outside of this house she is a saint. But the other houseguests, especially the veterans since they've done this before, should know that no one can go though this game without some form of "lying".

    As I've said, I don't watch the live feeds, only what's edited but it seems to me Shelly was on Jeff and Jordans side up until the big argument. It was something she had to do to advance her game.

    It's like bluffing in poker, perfectly acceptable within the game. In this case though she's told so many people different things I don't think she remembers what she said to who.

    Yeah - I love when Adam (of all people!!!) tried to call her out. She wouldn't give him a direct answer! When she finally caved, the jig was up!!! It was pretty funny watching her flounder and try to figure out how to cover her tracks!!!

    Anyone else wonder why Adam and/or Shelly didn't offer to pair up with Jordan or Rachel? I know it is on the spot and all, but you figure if nominated you would be the pawn. Of course hopefully Rachel or Jordan would think for a second and figure the best move for them would be for them to pair up.
