Taylor Armstrong Shares About Why She Went On Camera For RHOBH While In An Abusive Relationship

I know the women of the modern-day Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would have you think that “bringing children into it” is as dramatic as it gets. But do you remember how this franchise got started? Shit was dark. Camille Grammer literally outted Taylor Armstrong’s domestic abuse story to the world. Mostly because Taylor was putting all the other Housewives in a very sticky situation. Then, season 2 ended with Russell Armstrong’s suicide. It was…a lot.

Since that time, Taylor has been on Couple’s Therapy with her new man, been remarried, and still continues to share her opinions on the cast like 7 seasons later. Hey. She worked hard for that zip code, baby.

Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills OG Taylor Armstrong Shades The Current Cast

Remember when Taylor Armstrong was on Season 1 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? One, or rather two, things were obvious: Taylor had enormously plump lips, and she loved her cocktails. Her marriage to Russell Armstrong was a big storyline on early seasons, as well as the extravagant parties that the duo threw for their beloved daughter, Kennedy Armstrong.

In a shocking turn of events, Russell died of an apparent suicide on August 16, 2011. Russell was dealing with legal issues, such as several lawsuits and bankruptcy. Less than a month earlier, Taylor had filed for divorce. She also alleged that Russell physically and mentally abused her. This was a disturbingly dark period in Housewives history.

Taylor Armstrong Says Daughter Kennedy Doesn’t Miss Her Late Dad Russell

Taylor Armstrong was one of the original Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Taylor instantly made a splash thanks to her oversized pout and over-the-top birthday parties for her daughter Kennedy Armstrong. Additionally, she was known for a dark storyline that involved a toxic marriage to Russell Armstrong that ended in his suicide and her own very public nervous breakdown.
One month before Russell killed himself in August 2011, Taylor filed for divorce, citing physical and verbal abuse. After Russell’s death, Taylor remarried John Bluher and started a new life in Colorado. She and John appeared on the show Couples Therapy together. Taylor has also appeared on RHOBH since her departure after season 3, and rumors swirl periodically that she will return as a full-time Housewife.  Recently Taylor has opened up about how Kennedy, now 12-years-old, is doing years later after the loss of her father.

Cedric Martinez & Lisa Vanderpump

Everybody remember Cedric Martinez? Lisa Vanderpump‘s Houseguest from season 1 of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills? If you don’t, here’s a brief recap: Cedric was like family, but then allegedly betrayed Ken Todd and Lisa by lying about his family background to use them for fame and fortune.

Since being blackballed it’s been a very rough few years for Cedric – he’s lost Lisa’s friendship, and many other friends, and gained a bad reputation, which he says was based on a lie. Cedric spoke with Kate Casey on her Reality Life podcast and opened up about the drama with Lisa, provided some illuminating tidbits about how Reality TV works, and shared what he’s up to now.

I may not agree with everything, but I think Cedric came across with humility and self-reflection. It’s interesting stuff. Below is his story:

The Real Housewives of Orange County - Season 10

If one boob job is good, five are better! At least that’s what Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra Judge thinks. Having recently gone through her fifth breast surgery, Tamra dishes about the long and winding road that’s brought her, and her “girls,” to where she is today. Claiming she has no regrets about any of her plastic surgeries, Tamra says, “It is what it is. It’s a personal choice and for me. I don’t do it for the public or my husband. It’s something you do to make yourself feel better.” 

Tamra went through her first breast augmentation surgery after she had her first child because she “just wanted a little perk.” That little perk turned into four more surgeries down the road – to augment, reduce, and augment again! “Then I got them done after my third kid. I thought that instead of getting a lift, I’d fill in the extra skin,” says Tamra. “That was a big mistake because then they were too big.” She went on to get the implant size reduced, but viewers of RHOC may remember Tamra actually having her implants fully removed 3 years ago post-divorce in order to feel like “her” again. That’s not where the story ends, though, as Tamra has since put those suckers right back in. Guess we’re all in for a “new and 5th-time improved Tamra” on the upcoming RHOC season!
