Taylor Armstrong: Why She Decided To Return To RHOBH…

A lot of viewers were curious why Taylor Armstrong decided to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after her husband’s suicide in August 2011. Taylor tells The Age, she didn’t want to hide after the tragedy with her estranged husband, Russell. We reported earlier, that the cast held an on-camera intervention for Taylor that we will see later in Season 3, and many viewers have already taken notice to her intoxication on several occasions in Season 3.

“I thought it was important [for viewers] to see what it’s like when someone goes through tragedy and that there is recovery,” Taylor explained. “The abuse and then the death — people do get through these things.”

Taylor also admits to The Age that the attention from the media has taken its toll on her. “Especially when there’s been some tragedy, you feel like it’s hard to take a breath, you can’t go through the normal process of grieving,” she says.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Trust me when I say this…. all the viewers have been thru tragedies in their lives. We don’t need to be educated while watching RHOBH.. we need to be entertained. People get tired of watching ”downers”…. wake up and no more excuses.

    I agree @cindi… we do need to be entertained, we don’t need Dr.Oz or Dr. Phil as our nightcap!!

    I am so happy that Taylor is still on and showing people the recovery process. It’s so inspiring and amazing that she has the strength to do this. Small minded people like Cindi that seem to be experts at tragedy and just want to be entertained are just ignorant, dim whited people that really have no idea what they are talking about. This show is amazing and mainly because of Taylor. I have never witnessed such a gentle person go through so much and stay so strong.

    Taylor is a big fat liar and didn’t go through half as much as she claims. I can’t believe people fell for her scam.
