Taylor ArmstrongThere's only so much a person can handle, and after the latest trauma to befall Taylor Armstrong of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she is surely close to the brink. According to RadarOnline, Taylor received a series of death threats Sunday night via Twitter.

Their content is horrifying and extremely personal. No mere joke, a law enforcement official told the site, "These were credible serious threats against Taylor and her daughter, Kennedy." She was, understandably "freaked out" by them, and the FBI has been called in to investigate.

The first message sent to her via Twitter seemed to reference a book signing she's holding February 7 in New Jersey for her new book Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within and was sent from the account @Hardboiledpeggs. It said: "see u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u." The second read: "Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy's dead." Both times she responded, "Don't ever contact me again."

Talk about unsettling. This is the last thing she needs on top of all she has gone through. First there was her relationship with Russell Armstrong during which she allegedly endured years of physical and emotional abuse, then his suicide. Recent reports have said she has an alcohol problem, and she may not be asked back for another season of RHWOBH.

To heap something this frightening on someone who has been through so much and who is already is so emotionally fragile is just unimaginable. You have to wonder who could ever be so cruel, and what possible motivation the person could have for issuing these threats.

Taylor may not be the most likable Housewife ever, but she certainly doesn't deserve this -- no one does. I hope the FBI is able to track down the sender and punish him or her to the full extent of the law. And more importantly, I hope that Taylor is somehow able to move past it with the strength and courage it will take.

What motivation do you think anyone would have for sending death threats to Taylor Armstrong?
