Everyone is talking about Taylor Armstrong’s breakdown on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because of the connection between her breakdown, the abuse she suffered in her marriage and Russell Armstrong’s suicide. You were either puzzled by her public behavior or felt extremely sorry for her, because of her screams for help and understanding.
Now, Kyle Richards is speaking out about how she saw Taylor’s breakdown on her Bravo blog. “The night suddenly shifted from being silly and having fun to a complete nightmare. Taylor could not let go of the resentment towards Camille. Taylor was afraid that if Russell found out she had told all of us what had gone on in their marriage, and that it was repeated in FRONT of the cameras, he would lose it,” she writes. Taylor’s outburst was solely based on her fear that Russell would beat her if he found out that other people knew about the abusive.
Didn’t all of the housewives explain that there was lots of alcohol and wine being consumed during the taping of that incident on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Well, surely alcohol could have played a role in her breakdown. At one point, she is sitting on a ledge or table in a less than formal wear, almost looking like a scared little child. If she was trying to hide the fact that she was scared, she probably wouldn’t look like that. Surely, she was very drunk.
“I was overwhelmed with sadness for Taylor. There was so much we knew, but even more we didn’t,” Kyle writes in response to know much she knew about the abuse back then. However, Kyle defends her friend, especially now that she is left alone with her daughter. “In watching this, you may think, Taylor is crazy, a trouble maker, a phony, whatever it is you may be thinking. However, please remember, you have never met Taylor. She really is a kind person. She may have her issues, but she never wanted to hurt anyone. Walk a mile in her shoes before passing judgment….”
