Taylor Armstrong made headlines earlier this week for partying a little too hard at Kyle Richards’ daughter's fourth birthday party over the weekend. Witnesses went as far to say that she was "blitzed" and, as a result, her friends are more convinced than ever that she has developed a serious drinking problem!
We certainly hope these reports are just exaggerated, but if they are not, Taylor needs to get help! Her husband is gone and she is all that her daughter Kennedy has left. According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills insiders, however, Taylor is in "absolute denial"!
We heard rumblings of trouble brewing a few weeks ago, but apparently her problem is only getting worse, as one insider on the show alleges:
"Taylor is in absolute denial that she has a drinking problem. She is telling her close friends and fellow housewives that she isn't an alcoholic. Taylor says she can quit drinking at anytime, that she only drinks at night and that she has it under control. However, Taylor did get absolutely wasted at a four-year-old's birthday party and her daughter Kennedy saw the entire thing. No, Taylor doesn't ever drink and drive but she clearly has a problem and her daughter is witnessing her mother's sad downward spiral, just months after her own father killed himself. Taylor always says she will quit drinking and take her vitamins, but then she resumes drinking within a few days. Taylor doesn't realize that she can go into liver failure and die from drinking, it's truly sad to witness."
Yikes! This does sound serious. The insider is even claiming that Taylor has hit "rock bottom," continuing:
"Look, the fact is she got sloppy drunk at a four-year-old's birthday party and her half brother, Dwight was with her and so was Kennedy. If that isn't hitting rock bottom, what is? What Taylor doesn't realize is that producers of the show are going to stage an intervention and then she is going to be off the show. There is no way Bravo wants to deal with any potential negative publicity because of Taylor's drinking after Russell's suicide."
Maybe an intervention is what she needs. Kinda stinks that a private moment like that is going to be on television though. Then again, that is exactly what she signed up for.
Keep your head up, Taylor! And don't be afraid to get help if you need help! There is no shame in admitting you have a problem.
