Taylor Armstrong Appears at Bookends Despite Death Threat

Taylor Armstrong, a star of The Real Housewives of Orange County, received a death threat from a New Jersey teen on Twitter in late January; she'll still be at Bookends Tuesday night

Death threats made against reality TV show star Taylor Armstrong haven't forced the cancelation of her book signing at in Ridgewood on Tuesday night.

Radaronline.com first reported Armstrong, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, received a death threat from a teenage girl living in New Jersey on Jan. 29.

The message, posted on Twitter by @Hardboiledpeggs (a handle since deleted) read: “see u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u.” When Armstrong shot back a response not to contact her futher, the individual threatened to kill her and her daughter, according to the report. 

“Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy’s dead,” @Hardboiledpeggs wrote, referring to Armstrong's 5-year-old daughter.

A followup report from RadarOnline says the FBI identified the suspect. Citing a law enforcement source, RadarOnline reported the teenage girl lives in New Jersey and likely suffers from mental health issues.

In a telephone interview Monday, Bookends co-owner Pat Boyer said they haven't been asked to provide additional security.

"It's all been resolved from what I've been told," Boyer said. "She's coming and signing her book."

Asked what kind of turnout she expects, Boyer said it's hard to tell.

"You just don't know sometimes," she said. "We're getting calls [for book orders], it's hard to gauge as to what number of people will come."

Armstrong will be signing copies of her book "Hiding From Reality" at 7 p.m. Copies are still available at Bookends.

Is this news? The real news will be how many people do show up. If they do, what kind of shallow people really care to buy a "book" from this mo-ron.

If additional security is to be provided by Ridgewood PD, who's going to be paying the bill?
