No one will argue that Taylor Armstrong has had a difficult year. We can't imagine the pain she deals with everyday, especially with the added responsibility of living through her husband's suicide with her very young daughter at her side.
Still, there are good ways to cope and bad ways and according to those close to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Taylor is starting to spiral out of control and is in dire need of help.
We're hearing that Taylor's friends are imploring her to go to rehab, insisting that recent drunken episodes are concerning everyone around her. For those who watch the show, they've seen first hand how out-of-control her drinking has become. Remember when she climbed into her own suitcase? Cray cray. Then last week, Taylor was spotted stumbling out of a restaurant, sobbing and clutching herself as she made her way out. As an eyewitness explains:
"Judging by the way she was staggering she was very drunk. She couldn’t stand up without help and was being held up by her friend as she walked to the car. She looked absolutely wasted."
Ah. Not good. Not good at all.
Because Taylor can't seem to keep herself in check, her close friends have been fervently urging her to get some help — for her own sake and the sake of her daughter. As a close friend explains:
"Taylor admits that alcohol has become her crutch in dealing with Russell's suicide, and coping with the drama of being on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. While Taylor doesn't drink every day, or during the day, and she certainly doesn't drink and drive, whenever she does drink, she gets drunk. Taylor primarily drinks in the evenings, at home alone, and when out socializing with friends. She isn't drunk in front of her daughter Kennedy."
Still, who long will it be till that isn't the case? Should her problem be ignored simply because it hasn't trickled into every facet of her life.
Heed the advice of those who love you, Taylor. Get help and get it now … before it is too late!
