It’s no secret to “Big Brother 15” fans that Amanda Zuckerman is not a fan of her former fellow house guest, Elissa Slater, whose sister is previous “Big Brother” winner Rachel Reilly, as she's made that clear during a number of interviews about her "Big Brother" experience. On Sept. 29, 2013, she received angry messages from some Twitter users after making a joke related to the two women.
At around 7 p.m. ET, Twitter follower @queen_amandaz asked Amanda, who works in real estate, “…if u weren’t a realtor, what would u wanna be?”

Some of her supporters rallied around her regarding the tweet, such as @kailynevs, who wrote, “Then thank god you are a realtor, because no one wants another Reilly.”
However, a number of Twitter users became upset by the quip, including @AngelaK1975, who tweeted, “…still consumed with jealousy and envy of Elissa, and Rachel. Get over it already you are evil & they are good.”
She added, “…You will NEVER be anything like them, You are so jealous that Elissa is America’s favorite,” and continued with, “…LMAO at the thought that you thought you where America’s favorite. Now that is truly funny!!!!!!!!”
@queen_amandaz jumped back into the mix, writing, “SHE WAS KIDDING,” but @laints26 wrote, “Not on ur best day,” and “…I would take a mill Reilly’s b4 anoth Am.”
In addition, @veedubz508 tweeted, “We know deep down you really do want to be a Reilly. Too bad they have more class than you.”
@sarahalisa wrote, “…refer back to your ‘hate in the world’ tweet when reflecting on this one,” which was in reference to one of several responses Amanda made, apparently in response to the flack she was getting for the Reilly sister joke.
Just a few hours after the initial negative response, Amanda began tweeting serious messages, including “What everyone needs to realize is that this was a game. We are all people, who all are dealing with adjusting to the world. There’s too much… hate in the world. Let’s all relax, realize what Big Brother is, and let bygones be bygones #stopthehate.”
She then wrote, “With that being said, I’m done for the night. #goodnight #bb15,” and in her final tweet for the evening directed followers to “Big Brother” alumni Britney Haynes Godwin’s site for her baby Tilly who was recently diagnosed with cancer, writing, “…Let’s focus on someone who needs our help… togetherfortilly.com/blog/.”
Amanda has been visiting the family of her "Big Brother 15" romance, McCrae Olson, and tweeted earlier Sunday the two would soon be headed to Florida to see her family.
