Taylor Armstrong

The ladies of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stick together. This week it was reported that Taylor Armstrong is divorcing husband Russell Armstrong amidst allegations of abuse, and her friend and co-star Kyle Richards is stepping in to make sure Taylor is getting through this tough time.

About Taylor’s impending divorce, Kyle tells People,”She’s going to pull through. She’s a beautiful girl, she’s a smart girl; she’ll get through it.” Kyle has been trying to take her cast mate’s mind off of the currents situation with fun distractions like a recent beach day for the pals and their daughters. Commenting on Taylor and Russell’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy, Kyle continues,”Kennedy’s doing well. She’s doing great. She’s kind of oblivious to what’s going on.”

As for the long-term, Kyle believes that her friend will make it through this a stronger person. And as for Kyle, she’s just doing what any good girlfriend would do. She says, “I’ve seen her a lot lately. I love Taylor, and I know she’s going through a hard time right now. I’m just being there as a friend.”

Kyle is about to get a lot busier as well. RadarOnline reports she is returning to her acting roots, and I for one, was a HUGE fan of her in Disney’s frightening (well frightening for Disney) Watcher in the Woods. Kyle will be starring in an upcoming Lifetime movie entitled Deadly Sibling Rivalry. Should her sister Kim Richards (the bigger of the two as far as child stars go…need I remind you of the awesomeness of the Witch Mountain movies?) watch her back? “Don’t think too much into the title,” jokes Kyle.

Also on the horizon for Kyle is a handbag line and a book, a la niece Paris Hilton. However, nearest and dearest to Kyle’s heart is the housewives franchise. She is very excited about the upcoming season, despite ending on a sour note with some of her cast mates. Kyle admits, “The reunion was absolutely torture: It’s absolutely torture because you see things that the girls are saying that you never knew they said about you, and all of a sudden you’re like, ‘Wait a minute! I thought that we were friends? I thought we were OK?’” Nevertheless, it’s her favorite business venture.

And just because it’s too cute/strange not to mention, Kyle’s precious toddler Portia, with hottie husband Mauricio Umansky, is the newest member of the Twitterverse. You can follow Kyle’s youngest daughter as she spouts sweet sentiments such as “Dear God, I love u in the morning like a diamond ring.” A collective “awww” please!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KYLE’S NEW ACTING CAREER? WILL YOU BE FOLLOWING PORTIA ON TWITTER?

Two weeks after filing for divorce, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong is now alleging husband Russell Armstrong abused her both verbally and physically.

Taylor, 40, makes the shocking revelations in an all new interview with PEOPLE magazine. While all that talk about an amicable split came about after Taylor filed for divorce following six years of marriage, she is now telling a darker tale of her relationship’s demise.

“I felt like I was dying inside,” she says. “Now, there’s some sense of peace.” Taylor claims Russell was both verbally and physically abusive, with name-calling, hair pulling, and shoving being a staple of their marriage. She also alleges Russell threw things at her when enraged. As a child of domestic abuse, Taylor was an advocate for battered women, and her efforts were highlighted on the first season.

Taylor reveals, “I’m mad at myself for tolerating things I should not have tolerated from the first moment. Allowing this to happen in my own relationship was something I felt very ashamed of.”

After several months of counseling, Taylor realized she needed a better environment for the couple’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy and decided to end the marriage, adding the decision was a difficult one. “When I knew the filing had gone through, I just started to cry,” she says. “We tried hard to fix our marriage, but it wasn’t healthy.”

For his part, Russell, 47, admits, “Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit.” Russell, however, denies ever pulling his wife’s hair.

The viewers of the reality hit will watch the couple’s marriage implode on the upcoming season which premieres September 5 on Bravo.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Cast

Bravo has just announced the highly anticipated second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere September 5 at 10/9c!

Returning are of all the original six housewives pictured above – Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump.

Surprisingly missing from the cast photo is Brandi Glanville who was reported to be the new housewife. But fret not as Brandi will be on the new season though Bravo is not making her an official housewife. “Though not official “housewives,” this season the ladies are joined by two new friends: Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey, who certainly know how to spice things up in the world’s most famous zip code,” reads the press release. Dana is described as a party planner who throws elaborate parties (she’s the party planner behind Taylor’s infamous $60k tea party for her 4 year-old daughter in season one). A photo of Dana is below.

Bravo also released the official season trailer and it is nothing but drama! In the 2-minute trailer below, Taylor can be seen crying over and over and over, Lisa seems to ruffle Adrienne’s feathers as the two get into it (Adrienne accuses her of always stirring the pot), Camille and Kyle also get into it, and Taylor and Kyle fight as well. Cedric also makes an appearance when he crashes Lisa’s party.

However in the most dramatic scene, Brandi and Kim get into a very ugly argument that almost comes to blows. In the heated exchange, Brandi accuses Kim of using drugs! WHOA! Kim strikes right back by calling Brandi a “slut pig.” For some reason it appears Bravo has edited the current clip. In the original clip I viewed this morning, Brandi actually accuses Kim of snorting crystal meth in bathrooms. Ai ya ya.

Are you excited about the new season? The trailer is below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON AND TRAILER?

It’s now official. A day after her husband Russell Armstrong revealed they had separated, Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce.

PEOPLE is reporting that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star filed for divorce late Friday following 6 years of marriage. In fact Taylor herself confirmed the news through a statement.

“It was a difficult decision but I have decided to file for divorce from Russell,” Taylor revealed in an exclusive statement. “Although we have tried our best to work out our differences, I have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our family that we separate.”

Taylor continued, “Together we are the proud parents of a sweet and wonderful little girl and she remains my number one priority. I am sad for my marriage to come to an end, but am confident that this is the right choice for all involved.”

Meanwhile Russell also opened up to the Rumor Fix website. “The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming,” he reveals. “It took our manageable problems and made them worse.” Russell described this as a “devastating time,” adding, “I don’t want you to get the impression that Taylor and I are bitter enemies — we’re not.”

UsWeekly first reported the couple had split in May but they denied it back then. The couple had been going through therapy to try to fix their marriage. Taylor, 39, and Russell, 47, tied the knot in 2005 and have one daughter together – Kennedy, 5.

Taylor is asking for joint legal and primary physical custody of Kennedy, as well as spousal and child support. TMZ is also reporting the couple had no prenup. Wowzers.

TELL US – THOUGHTS? IS THE HOUSEWIVES TO BLAME FOR THIS DIVORCE?

It’s official, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong have separated.

Over a month after initially denying a reported split, Russell himself is now confirming the news to OK! magazine stating a divorce is likely the next step.

“We still love each other, but after going through counseling it has gotten to the point that the stress is just too much for both of us,” Russell tells OK!.

OK! also reports that Russell has in fact moved out of the home the couple shares with their 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. As for what led to the demise of their marriage, Russell, whose past legal issues came out last year, blames the pressures of being on television.

“I want Taylor to be the biggest actress on TV, and I want to feel happy not being on TV!” Russell adds.

As for Taylor, who has yet to publicly comment on this news, it appears she is already moving on. The NY Post is reporting today that she had a fun night out in the Hamptons recently with “Hell’s Kitchen” chef Seth Levine. Sources tell the Post that Taylor and Seth were acting very friendly at Seth’s East Hampton hotspot Georgica before heading to the dance floor for some dirty dancing.  Taylor’s rep however denies the story. A picture of Seth is below.

UsWeekly also reported back in May that Taylor and Russell were experiencing “huge marital problems related to finances.”

According to a new report, Taylor Armstrong is stirring up trouble on the new season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!

RadarOnline is reporting that Taylor, pictured above with husband Russell Armstrong on June 12 as they celebrated her 40th birthday, is battling with her castmates and causing tension during filming.

“Taylor is telling the other women exactly what she is thinking, and she isn’t holding anything back,” says a source. “Taylor has had some tense moments with Adrienne Maloof especially. Adrienne was completely taken aback by Taylor because she usually tried to avoid conflict. There has also been some drama between new housewife Brandi Glanville and Taylor.”

The article then goes on to claim that Taylor spent the first season avoiding confrontation and being a peacemaker. Yes, I’m scratching my head on that one as well. RadarOnline adds that since being in therapy this year, Taylor is now learning to be more assertive and speak her mind.

“Taylor has been getting counseling, which will be featured on the show this year, and she has been encouraged to stand-up for herself, and not let people, including her husband, Russell take advantage of her,” the source adds.

So when can we expect the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 2, which is currently filming, to premiere? The insider reveals Bravo “has plans to put the show on the air by October of this year.”

Meanwhile, Taylor came out last month attributing her very skinny frame to simply trying out some diet pills her husband brought home. Some of you wondered what those pills were, and according to Taylor’s twitter page, the diet supplement is called RegeneSlim. “They gave me lots of energy but not jitters. I do drink caffine though so, not sure about other people’s “jitter response.”” tweeted Taylor.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has recently come under attack for an uber skinny frame. The media blamed her severe weight loss on a crumbling marriage and the pressures of keeping up with the Richards Vanderpumps Maloofs Joneses. Taylor opens up about the eating disorder rumors and alleged marital turmoil in an interview with OK Magazine.

Taylor reveals that her marriage has never been better, despite the stories that say otherwise. She says, “Russell and I are together and in love and happier than ever.” Taylor attributes her husband as being the person who made her realize her dieting had gone too far, and it was with his support she was able to recognize the “unhealthy extremes” she went to in order to lose weight. Read the interview exerpt below to see what caused her rapid weight loss and how she was able to change these habits to regain her healthy physique.

How did it all start?
Russell brought home diet supplements two months ago because someone he knows wanted him to look at the company. We didn’t discuss the business end of it, but I started taking the supplements without him knowing. In the back of my mind I didn’t think they would even work, so I wasn’t worried — they were all natural and I thought you had to take prescription drugs to really ever lose weight.

Why did you think you needed them?
You know how it is as a woman; I was feeling my clothes were tight. I get everything tailored to fit me just right, so even if I gain just a few pounds my clothes don’t fit. I’d gained some weight because I was so busy with the show, being a wife and mother and running my start-up business. We went to charity events at night and I was eating unhealthy “event food” or drive-thru food, so I felt I needed to lose some weight. When I was taking the supplements, I had so much energy and wasn’t hungry — I thought it was great at first.

Has Russell ever made you feel self-conscious about your body?
Not at all. As a matter of fact, like most men, he likes me best when I am voluptuous. Recently we were looking at photos and he pointed out one and said I looked so lovely in it. I laughed as I told him: “I was five months pregnant there!”

When did you know you’d gone too far?
It was Russell who got me to admit the truth. He saw I wasn’t eating much and that I was too thin. I wasn’t weighing myself or taking my measurements, but when he said it I knew he was right.

Okay, so Taylor and Russell are more in love than ever, and in two months herbal supplements caused her to shed a ridiculous amount of weight. Can I get the name of these “supplements” and directions to the back alley where they are sold? Kidding aside, I think supplements alone is a slightly odd reason for such a drastic body change. Of course, all of the stresses involved in being a reality star (NOT to be confused with the stresses of being in a bad marriage with a robot, because She. Isn’t.), could certainly take their toll on a person’s lifestyle, eating habits, and frame.
