After Russell Armstrong committed suicide by hanging himself in August of 2011, Taylor apparently started drinking heavily; she admitted as much this week in her Bravo blog . She says she was trying to numb her pain caused by her estranged husband’s death. However, it has been alleged that she was a heavy drinker long before Russell killed himself and has accused Taylor of being full of baloney in her version of her drinking problem.
The sources says Taylor drank long before that – “probably to escape the beatings and reality of her awful marriage.”
As we previously reported to you, husband Russell was abusive to Taylor for years and once even hit her so hard in the face that she was hospitalized and had to have corrective plastic surgery.
“She’s been drunk every time I’ve been around her,” the source says.
Taylor Armstrong’s mental stability and drinking has also come under scrutiny following an incident where she allegedly “forgot” that Kyle Richards was taking care of her young daughter, Kennedy. Actually, the source says, that’s nothing new and alleges,
“She pawns the kid off on anyone with kids who will take her. “Then she drinks more!”
What do you make of these new clais about the extent of Taylor Armstrong’s problem with alcohol?
