Last night, on the first episode of the reunion of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we learned that apparently RadarOnline is the go to gossip site of choice for the RHOBH. Tonight, RadarOnline is reporting that Taylor is receiving death threats toward her and her young daughter on twitter. The FBI has apparently been made aware of the complaints. The report is, not surprisingly, very support of Taylor Armstrong. Bravo essentially gave RadarOnline an extended free television commercial on the reunion show that aired last night.
It was just over two weeks ago that Taylor left a restaurant visibly distraught following a string of hateful tweets sent to her via Twitter. I posted about that incident here, suggesting that Taylor is in deep trouble emotionally and that these sorts of tweets are unhealthy for her to read. Unfortunately, the mean tweeters have upped the ante since that event.
On Sunday night, Taylor Armstrong received two threatening messages. Both sent by a now deleted twitter account in the name @Hardboiledpeggs. The first one said, ”see u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u.” Taylor replied, “Don’t ever contact me again.” Um why didn’t she block the person? In the second one, @hardboiledpeggs wrote, ”turn around bright eyes every now and then, kennedys dead”. Taylor replied, “You are disgusting! The most horrible msg.” It seems some people will not be satisfied until Taylor is dead. They also think that they can’t be found if they use a disposable twitter account. They are wrong. When they are found, they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Taylor will be in New Jersey for a book signing on February 7th to promote her new book Hiding from Reality. Security detail has been increased for the appearance.
Tonight on Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN, Russell Armstrong’s sister made an appearance to express her displeasure over the reunion show that aired last night. Laurie Armstrong Kelso stated,” We are outraged as anyone would expect. It’s unfortunate and sad. It’s devastating”. With regard to Taylor suggesting the show saved her from Russell murdering her in a murder-suicide. ”We have our ducks in a row. Apparently, there is nothing we can do, but we do have plans to go forward with counsel because this is not fair.” Then, Alexis Tereszcuk, a RadarOnline staff reporter, was asked by Velez-Mitchell, “Do they have legal options?” Um ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Now RadarOnline staff writers are who we go to for legal counsel? If you are interested, Alexis said the family of Russell is SOL. The sister ended the interview by saying, “This is all a very unfortunate situation. At a time that we could have all used everyone’s support even Taylor’s…” Then in true Jane Velez-Mitchell the show abruptly ended.
