We actually can't believe we are still talking about this. It's gotten to a point now where we just keep asking ourselves, "How much more can be said on the subject?"
Yet here we go again…
According to a new sources, Taylor Armstrong received ZERO support from some of her Real Housewives castmates during her time of need because some of them didn't believe she was actually being abuse. According to show insiders, when Taylor finally confessed the state of her brutal home life, the other women found that her stories "didn't match up" and they "thought that maybe she wasn’t telling the truth about how Russell was treating her."
Things progressively got more suspicious when the women would offer to help her out of her situation and Taylor would refuse or flatly ignore them. As time went on, supposedly her claims became ludicrious and it was clear that she was embellishing or at worst, lying about the abuse. A source explained:
“Taylor’s stories about the abuse would change and she would amp up the details of the violence so the other women started to doubt any part of her story … Each time Taylor would talk about the domestic abuse her story would change, and the ladies started to think that she wasn’t being honest about what was happening."
Look, there are three sides to every story: her side, Russell's side and the truth. We're never going to know for sure if Russell did all the things she said he did or if these women should have been more supportive of the impossible situation she was in, one that she probably tried to lie her way out of talking about.
But at the end of the day, no matter what went down, this woman has had a hard year and perhaps its just best to lend her a helpful ear rather than rehash the past.
Time for us all to move on.
