This is just AWFUL!
The National Enquirer is reporting that Taylor Armstrong of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who went through hell in abusive marriage to now-deceased-by-suicide Russell, has been "kicked off" the next season of the reality show, because her jealous co-stars are upset with the amount of attention her storyline received this year!
According to alleged insider:
"[Her co-stars} complained to producers that she was constantly trying to steal the show. [Taylor] alienated the other Housewives with her nonstop ploys for pity and attention before the tragedy. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was turning into the Taylor Armstrong therapy show. Whenever the wives are together, Taylor would somehow manage to start crying and complaining about her life."
Or maybe she was finally snapping under the pressure of trying to hide an increasingly volatile and unhealthy relationship? Honestly, have they even seen this season?
She has battered woman syndrome written all over her face! There's nothing funny about making these kind of accusations!
And apparently, a source close to Bravo has confirmed that this is false!
Good! Absolutely shameful!
Regardless of whether you like this woman personally or not, what this woman endured is no laughing matter, and we think it's about time people started minimizing the severity of what she went through by questioning her intentions with this all! It perpetuates the idea that domestic abuse should be tolerated, and that it's somehow the woman's fault!
So yeah. It's time to STFU and leave her alone. She's shedding light on a serious issue that needs much more attention than it receives.
