Taylor Armstrong, an original cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, had some of the most hilarious seasons in Season 1, which began broadcasting in 2010. Using physical and verbal abuse, Taylor filed for divorce in July 2011, and Russell died one month later by suicide. Though she continued filming, the aftermath of her ex-wife''s death was a large part of Taylor''s departure from RHOBH before Season 4.
Taylor presented her in a talk about her life after she went on the trail of Lisa Vanderpumps. She explained that she was initially contemplating leaving RHOBH in the moment when Camille outed her domestic abuse at a tea party. I knew in that moment that my life would be over, or my life would become better, or I would divorce. It was a stressful experience for me.
Despite all of her personal worries, Taylor remained supportive of Season 2 airing. She stated that she wanted to be transparent about what was gone through and to show viewers hope on the other side. By the end of RHOBHs third season, she realized that it was time for her and her 16-year-old daughter to step away from the spotlight.
Taylor said that after Season 3 and all of my life, I needed to take some time off from L.A. and all of my paparazzi. It was a bit frightening for a while because I wanted my little girl to stay away for a while and not have her exposed to people constantly screaming and asking me questions. So they moved to Vail, Colorado, where Taylor said she took some time to let go of what had happened and try to recover.
Peacocks The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club is now showing up on TV, with Dorinda Medley, Jill Zarin, Vicki Gunvalson, and Rhyssa Judge, and yes, the RHOBH nemesis Brandi Glanville. This time around, Taylor, who married Attorney John Bluher in December 2020, said she is a stronger person than she was when she and Brandi used to fight on RHOBH.
I was so stressed out in my home life when I was on Beverly Hills, which I realized I couldnt really be myself, and now that I have evolved so much, im back to being the original me, and I am so grateful for the Ultimate Girls Trip.
Taylor, who lives in Orange County, said she would certainly return to RHOBH if the opportunity was presented. Stay tuned.
