After watching her on this past episode and in light of everything she's going through, we certainly hope she does something about this.
If not for her, then for her daughter.
If you tuned into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this week, you may have been shocked to watch Taylor Armstrong get so drunk that she essentially spiraled out of control in front of her castmates, and apparently, this is not an uncommon occurrence, and it's only worsened since the shocking suicide of her allegedly abusive husband, Russell.
According to a source:
“A pal told Taylor that she drinks too much. She told Taylor to go to rehab for the sake of her daughter. Taylor agreed and said she is open to going to some kind of rehab center. The alcohol has been a problem for a long time, but since Russell’s suicide it’s gotten worse. When Russell was alive, they drank a lot together. Taylor doesn’t know that friends and family will have a real intervention with her if she doesn’t follow through with some kind of treatment. She is trying to keep this quiet. She doesn’t want anyone to know about this.”
Again, we can't imagine what this poor woman has been and is going through, but numbing that pain with substance abuse isn't going to make it go away any faster. It will always be there, and we want to see her get back to a healthy place where she can deal with these issues and be the kind of mother that little Kennedy deserves.
We're thinking of you. Stay strong.
