This is what we feared might happen…
Sounds like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Taylor Armstrong, hasn’t been dealing too well with the news of Bravo numbering her days on the show.
Reportedly, Taylor’s friends are EXTREMELY worried about her, as she's been turning to alcohol to cope. And of course, Bravo producers are planning on weaving this into a storyline for the show’s upcoming season…surprise, surprise!
A source spilled:
"Taylor has been relying on alcohol to cope with the suicide of her husband, Russell, and the stress of raising a child as a single mother. Viewers got a glimpse of her drinking last season on the show when she had an epic meltdown at Camille [Grammer's] Aspen mansion. Taylor got so intoxicated that she climbed into her suitcase. It was very scary for all of the ladies to witness.”
That episode WAS scary, not to mention super sad to sit through…and to think, that situation occurred BEFORE Russell committed suicide.
Lately, Taylor’s fellow housewives and friends think she should go to rehab for alcohol and substance abuse, all of which Taylor adamantly denies she has a problem with.
The source, who says Taylor is a paid spokesperson for Ciroc vodka, dished:
“She earns about $100 thousand a year from that endorsement deal, and she is afraid that if she goes to rehab they will drop her."
Gurl, that is SO not worth sacrificing your health and wellbeing! Think of Kennedy, too!
Also, according to sources close the production, producers had pity on Taylor for everything that happened over this past year, which is why they decided to sign her on for this next season.
Despite them feeling bad, the show’s producers also reportedly think that Taylor isn’t that likable to viewers anymore, after she “basically cashed in” on Russell’s death with her recently released memoir.
We hope she ultimately chooses what is right for her in the end.
Stay strong, Taylor!!!
