After she went through a “catastrophic meltdown” during shooting for an episode of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’ volatile reality star Taylor Armstrong is reportedly taking it easy these days.
According to The Hollywood Insider, a source in Bravo informed RadarOnline that ”Taylor has been noticeably more subdued and under control since the horrible trip to Ojai.” The source referred to a ‘Real Housewives’ episode shot at the Ojai Valley Inn in California, where Armstrong got completely smashed on alcohol.
“She is trying to curb her drinking when the cameras are rolling,” the source said, “Because she recognizes that she has a very low tolerance for alcohol.
The source claimed that Taylor Armstrong was also “nervous that producers are going to ax her at some point.” Viewer interest in the suicide of her husband Russell Armstrong had reportedly run its course, and his widow reportedly feared that she was no longer interesting and bankable. So the least she could do was not cause any problems on set.
Taylor Armstrong had not totally given up drinking, though. ”Taylor hasn’t quit drinking,” the source clarified. “She is just more cognizant of it while filming.” According to the source, ”Taylor needs a glass of wine to unwind at the end of the day” after shooting ‘Real Housewives.’

A source said that the trip was neither relaxing and therapeutic. Taylor Armstrong was supposedly messed up all day long. “It was a horrific sight to see,” the source shared, claiming that Armstrong “totally lost control of her emotions and her temper.”
In addition, the source told Perez Hilton that despite being “an absolute complete mess,” Armstrong “refuses to acknowledge that she has a problem.” Additional sources spoke their minds about the Ojai Valley Inn meltdown. One said that Taylor Armstrong could not control her drinking. “She doesn’t have just 10 drinks,” the source elaborated. “She has like 30 or 40 and she’s a mess.”
This source also claimed that Armstrong “caused major drama all weekend.” Supposedly, “The fights were non-stop, and [Taylor] was a mess.”
A third source claimed to have been present at the Ojai, California spa all weekend- and that Taylor Armstrong was all over the place during shooting. “She would start drinking very, very early in the day,” related this source.
Armstrong’s nonstop drinking supposedly led to a “catastrophic meltdown” that got caught on camera. According to the source, Armstrong’s on-screen breakdown “will truly shock viewers when they see it on air this fall.”
According to these sources, the rest of the cast of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ are reportedly concerned about the allegedly volcanic Taylor Armstrong. Supposedly, Kyle and Lisa were worried about Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy.

Apparently, Taylor Armstrong simply cannot shake off the $1.5 million MyMedicalRecords.com lawsuit hounding her tracks. According to Perez Hilton, MyMedicalRecords.com originally sued the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong and her late husband Russell Armstrong for breaching their contract and scamming money to fund a “lavish lifestyle.”
With primary defendant Russell Armstrong having committed suicide after the breach-of-contract lawsuit, Taylor and her new lover -lawyer John Bluher- sought to have the case dismissed.

‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Taylor Armstrong is allegedly dating her married lawyer, according to reports from RadarOnline.
Taylor Armstrong is currently getting legal help from 54-year-old lawyer John Bluher for a lawsuit she is currently embroiled in. Reports say Taylor Armstrong is also allegedly seeing her married lawyer, John Bluher.
The source told RadarOnline, “John travelled with Taylor while she was doing her book tour and the two of them hit it off, in more ways than one. She’s been seeing him for almost two months and has confided in a handful of friends about the affair.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong lost her estranged husband Russell Armstrong last August of 2011 when Russell committed suicide. John Bluher, on the other hand, is still legally married although sources say he is estranged from his wife.
“It’s a bit of a complicated situation. John Bluher is still technically married, even though he no longer lives with his wife in Colorado and spends the majority of his time with Taylor Armstrong in Southern California now,” the source told RadarOnline.
Additionally, the source claims, “There’s a very strong connection between the two, but Taylor doesn’t want to be known as the other woman, period. She needs to be a role model for her daughter, Kennedy.”
John Bluher vehemently denies the story and released a statement saying, “This story is a complete fabrication by someone that wants to hurt Taylor and damage my reputation. To place my name in an article that says Taylor or I are having an affair is libel.”
“There is no affair nor has there been one. Taylor would not have said it to anyone because it hasn’t occurred. Neither she nor I have any relationship other than my working as her legal counsel,” John Bluher concluded.

After ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong admitted to being abused by his late husband, Russell Armstrong, who committed suicide last year, the reality TV show star has been receiving a torrent of hate comments in her Twitter page, saying that Taylor Armstrong is a liar who only wants to make more money.
Some of the hate tweets said things like, “Your stories dont add up #moneyhungry Then maybe you should redo your math” and “Get off your high horse. You wrote the book first and foremost for the money.”
In response to the flood of condemning tweets being fired at her, Taylor Armstrong decided to release her official medical records detailing the injuries she obtained at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong. She also answered the hate tweets by saying:
“For those who continue to say I’m lying. Ur harming women who suffer n silence making them even more afraid 2 speak up & get help. So… I’m releasing my official medical records on my FB page.”
“When a woman says she’s being abused, don’t wait for bruises to appear. Believe her! Help her! Don’t doubt her & call her a liar! I’m sure there will be some new spin from the haters out there but that will only make it more difficult for other abused women!!”
“I’m not doing it because I have to. I’m doing it because I want to. Calling someone who has been abused a liar is abusive.”
Taylor Armstrong told her Twitter followers that she had been pushed to a breaking point of all sorts, hence her decision to release the official medical records in an effort to silence those who doubt the abuse that she got from her late husband.
Together with an accompanying document posted in her Facebook page, Taylor Armstrong said, “Here’s the first official medical record from the imaging center who examined my eye. Despite what the doubters have said, I will say again — this was not an elective, cosmetic surgery.”
The official medical records pertain to a June 2011 visit of Taylor Armstrong to a Beverly Hills doctor, detailing “trauma” and “fracture” to the right eye of Taylor Armstrong. The photos of the said injury were obtained exclusively by ET in September, showing Taylor in a hospital bed with said bruise.
Russell Armstrong, ex-spouse of Taylor Armstrong, committed suicide August of 2011, just a month after Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce. After his suicide, Taylor confessed about the abuse in an interview with ET as well as in the reunion special of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

If you are a big fan of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” for sure you did not miss the reunion episode last Monday where one of the casts, Taylor Armstrong, disclosed to the public the issue of abuse from her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong who committed suicide in August of last year.
This open discussion between Taylor Armstrong and her co-stars is the newest addition to the many dramas and emotional breakdowns that Taylor Armstrong had during the whole season of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” During the episode of the show, Taylor Armstrong raised the subject of the horrendous physical and emotional abuse that her late husband, Russell Armstrong, put her through. Even after the abuse and everything else that has happened, Taylor Armstrong still talks about the mixed emotions she has since he committed suicide in August. The reality star even admitted that she still loves Russell Armstrong, despite being subjected to his abuse.
Afterwards, she dropped by “Watch What Happens Live” to give herself a post-meltdown debriefing from Bravo mascot Andy Cohen.
Taylor Armstrong admitted that it was a lot of struggle to watch the episode. “I see a woman who was out of control … about to go off the deep end,” she said. “My biggest fears were unraveling. For me it was as though I lived my life for quite a long time with a boiling pot I was holding a lid on top of, and it was starting to boil over.”
Armstrong also discussed her seemingly unreasonable anger towards Camille Grammer, who opened the topic of the abuse she got from Russell Armstrong, after the two reality stars had talked about it behind the cameras. “For me admitting that I was being abused on national television was something that I didn’t think would ever happen,” Taylor Armstrong said.
Taylor Armstrong’s interview with Andy Cohen also gave her the opportunity to promote her book entitled, “Hiding From Reality.” While she burst into fits of tears, Taylor Armstrong told Andy Cohen that she hopes to help other women “break the cycle” of abuse by sharing her own sad and heartbreaking personal history with abuse.
“The cycle in domestic violence is so hard to understand and I wanted people to see me for who I really am,” she said. “And to understand that this started at a very young age for me, I ended up in this situation because of my own flaws and my own insecurities.”
Andy Cohen discussed about how Taylor Armstrong’s five-year-old daughter, Kennedy, is dealing with the issue of the suicide of her father, Russell Armstrong. “We each have good days and bad days, but we have amazing friends and loved ones around us, and we have great psychological support, so we’re very fortunate.
Taylor Armstrong also admitted that her daughter was with her the night she found the body of Russell Armstrong. “She knew something was bad. The first thing she said was, ‘Did Daddy do something dumb?’” Armstrong told Cohen.
Reasonably, the young Kennedy Armstong is struggling to come to terms with the death of her father, Russell Armstrong. “We talk about it a lot…. It hasn’t been easy” Taylor Armstrong said.
