Taylor Armstrong

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.

It’s splitsville for Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong reports UsWeekly.

According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.

“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.

The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.

The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.

Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.

UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”

PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.

UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.”  The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.

We reported last week that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong graced the latest cover of Star Magazine under the heading “RHOBH Taylor Armstrong ANOREXIC?” and now we have more on the story plus the photos that led to the article!

According to Star, Taylor has lost an estimated 20 pounds in less than two months with sources attributing her shrinking frame to her marital problems with hubby Russell Armstrong.

The photos that set off the anorexia fears were bikini photos of Taylor, 40, (posted below) taken earlier this month in Santa Barbara, showing her protruding rib cage and concave stomach.

Weight loss expert Dr Aaron Tabor, who does not treat Taylor, told Star magazine she is showing signs of muscle atrophy on her arms and chest. “She’s not getting enough protein in her body and is borderline anorexic,” he stated, estimating that she has dropped from a healthy 130lbs to 110lbs.

Meanwhile, a friend of Taylor’s tells Star that she is barely eating and that her problems with Russell are taking a toll. “She is bringing in most of the money for the household. He doesn’t seem to be giving her the respect and love she deserves,” the source said.

And while the couple is currently getting marriage counseling, the source doesn’t believe it’s doing much. “They are in therapy, but it doesn’t look like it’s helping,” the source added. More bikini photos of Taylor below.

As you all know by now, filming began on the second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills weeks ago.

And according to a new report by the HollywoodLife today, Taylor Armstrong is not boding so well on the new season. In fact, an insider tells the site she is “is looking like quite the hot mess” in the episodes being filmed at the moment.

“Taylor’s a sweet girl,” says the insider, “but the housewives are all starting to get a little bit worried about her erratic behavior recently. She’s not acting like herself.”

The insider adds that Taylor has been acting out in front of the cameras, and suspects Taylor’s husband Russell Armstrong is to blame. “Russell and Taylor’s problems last season are still there this season,” says the insider. “They got into a loud argument in front of some Bravo execs at a dinner a few weeks ago.”  The couple is reported to be getting counseling.

An explanation for Taylor’s reported erratic behavior might have to do with all the backlash she received last season from fans of the show who blamed her for stirring up most of the drama between sisters Kim and Kyle Richards.

In fact, Taylor herself is well aware of the backlash as she decided to apologize to fans once again during the recent Bravo Upfront party in Los Angeles. According to E! News, “Taylor seemed to be asking for the fans’ love/forgiveness” when they interviewed her. Taylor had first apologized to fans in a blog for Bravo following the airing of the finale.

Taylor’s problems do not end there as she also graces the latest cover of Star magazine, under the unflattering heading of “RHOBH Taylor Armstrong ANOREXIC?” with friends worried too much stress might be affecting her health. “She is barely eating,” a friend tells Star magazine. A picture of the Star cover  is below.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kim Richards & Kyle Richards made another public appearance together.

According to the Wetpaint site, the sisters stepped out a week ago to do some lunching in celebration of their sister Kathy Hilton’s birthday.

Also present was Faye Resnick, as all signs continue to point to Faye being a new housewife on the show. This is the second time Kim has been photographed in public in the past 2 weeks. And just last week, a fan asked Kyle on twitter about the state of her relationship with Kim, in which she replied, “We’re good.” More photos of Kim and Kyle below.

In other BH news, RadarOnline is reporting Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong are currently in couple’s therapy.

A “source” close to the situation tells the site the two are taking steps to repair the breakdown in their marriage with the help of renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy.

According to Radar, Russell and Taylor will have sessions with Dr. Sophy together and separately. It gets even better as several of Taylor’s sessions with Dr. Sophy will be filmed for the upcoming season Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, it seems Russell is having second thoughts about appearing on camera for the new season a la Jim Bellino.

“Russell hasn’t decided yet if he wants to participate on camera. Dr. Sophy has provided the couple with a great deal of guidance, and they genuinely do seem to be working through their issues,” says the source. “Russell comes across on camera as being very aloof, and reclusive, that just isn’t who he is. Russell wants to work to improve the marriage, it just isn’t Taylor, which is a very, very good sign for the future of their marriage.”

Another source close to the couple tells Radar that there is “a little stress in the marriage” and that they want to make their marriage work. It’s a wonder these two need therapy as they seem perfectly suited for one another.

So much for that report claiming Nene Leakes and her latest nemesis Star Jones were trying to call a truce.

The verbal smackdown between the two Celebrity Apprentice stars continued this week as Nene visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show. When asked about her feelings on Star, the Nene called her a “disaster.”

“She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving,” said Nene about herself Star. “And I’m not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”

Ellen then asked if the NBC show accurately portrays the characters on the show. Nene replied, “I believe that you are. Big bossy Star. Laid back Nene. You are seeing all of that.”

Nene also stated she tried her best to get along with Star in the beginning. “I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the ‘Housewives,’” said Nene. “I think she thought I was going to come in and take over. I tried to get to know her. Some people are difficult to get to know. She’s not the easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.”

When asked if she was the only one who didn’t get along with Star, Nene told Ellen, “I don’t think anybody is getting along with Star. I don’t think she’s easy to get along with.” Seems like the Nene finally met her match.

As for Star’s response, she sent out the following tweets on Wednesday -

“I heard the “I hate Star Jones” fund got some more publicity today. LOL. Please send all checks to #AHA for #HeartHealth! #FocusOnAGoal”

“I REPEAT: If you LOVE me I’m always in your heart ; if you HATE me I’m always on your mind. Bless the miscellaneous…”

Meanwhile, we reported last week that Nene has been hanging out with Al Reynolds, Star’s ex-husband, and now a friend of Star’s tells Popeater how she really feels about that.

“Star thinks it’s pathetic that these two has-beens have teamed up together,” the friend tells Popeater. “Nene knows how much pain and hurt that man caused Star. For Nene to suddenly befriend him tells you exactly what sort of woman she really is.”

And finally, Nene spent some more time in California this week during which she hung out with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Taylor Amrstrong.

“My stomach hurts from laughing so much :o. U are beautiful and hilarious. Xoxo,” tweeted Kyle to Nene. “We laughed so much,” replied Nene.

Photos of the three housewives hanging tight below. We also have to wonder if there is trouble brewing for Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump’s friendship as the two have barely tweeted to each other in recent months. And while Kyle has been photographed filming numerous scenes with BFFs Faye Resnick and Taylor in the past 2 weeks for the show’s second season, she has yet to be seen filming with Lisa. Perhaps they’re just not as close as they used to be.

In today’s Camille Grammer is not going to be happy about this one news, a new report states Bravo is seriously considering adding Faye Resnick to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast.

According to the HollywoodLife, Faye has voiced her interest of wanting to become an official housewife to the show producers. “Faye has met with producers and there is a lot of interest from the show’s fans to have her on,” says a source close to the show. “I don’t have word yet on whether she has officially signed on, but I do know that she was being seriously considered.”

Faye’s addition to the cast would be especially interesting considering Camille will be returning to the show and the two butted heads during the now infamous dinner from hell. Faye is mostly known for close friends with Nicole Brown, and testifying against O.J. Simpson during his trial. Camille has accused Faye of capitalizing off Nicole’s murder trial by posing for Playboy and writing a book.

To add more fuel to the speculation, the above photo of Faye with BFF Kyle Richards and Taylor Armstrong, was taken Tuesday night for dinner at the BOA steakhouse in West Hollywood. There are some reports Bravo cameras were on hand to film the dinner for the second season of the hit show. Nice to see Kyle being very “friendly” to Taylor these days after claiming Bravo made their friendship out to “seem bigger” than it really was on the show.

As for the news of Faye possibly becoming a housewife, Bravo would only state, “We haven’t announced anything regarding season two yet.”

In other BH news, it seems Kyle is working towards getting her acting career back in gear. She tweeted Sunday night, “Last night shooting movie. So tired but happy to be here.”

Great news today for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans!

Following weeks of numerous rumors and reports, both the HollywoodLife and RadarOnline sites are now confirming that all of the Beverly Hills Housewives will be returning for a second season! And Yes, that includes both Kim Richards and Camille Grammer.

Sources tell both sites that it wasn’t easy getting Camille and Kim to return to the show.

“Camille was on the fence and really didn’t know if she wanted all her business exposed for a second time especially after her painful divorce,” sources tell RadarOnline. “She thought about it and re-thought about it before coming to the conclusion that she’d return for a second season.”

As for Kim, the HollywoodLife blog reports, “Kim and her sister Kyle obviously have a lot to work on, but they have both signed on as well.” A source also claims to Radar that Kim went to Bravo demanding more money for a second season, and wanted to be the highest paid castmember on the show due to the scrutiny she received on the show’s finale episode.

Meanwhile, another “source” tells the HollywoodLife that Taylor Armstrong was on the fence about returning to the show. “Taylor was hesitating because of the spotlight on her marriage which caused problems for her and her husband Russell, who is actually a genuinely good man,” reveals the source. “They actually have a pretty happy marriage but it wasn’t portrayed that way, but she wants another chance at showing how they really are in love with each other.” We’ll let you take a gander at who this source could be.

Whatever the case, all the ladies are signed on and Radar even reports filming has already started for Season 2!

“There is already drama brewing,” sources said. “Keep your eyes on this one. It’s going to be explosive.” No word on whether or not Bravo will be adding a new housewife to the show though it is expected they will.
