The friends of reality TV star Taylor Armstrong are so concerned about her excessive drinking that they are threatening to intervene if she does not get help. These are the same friends who intervened to have Taylor leave her husband Russell after receiving another beating from him, allegedly. Russell Armstrong committed suicide a few days later.
But now friends of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor are set to take matters into their own hands again. Since Russell’s suicide, mom of one Taylor has apparently been hitting the bottle pretty heavily. Friends fear her drinking is now out of control.
An insider reported to Star magazine that Taylor Armstrong is open to the idea of entering some kind of rehab facility to curb her drinking. She has said she wants to get help, for the sake of her young daughter, Kennedy (5).
But Taylor Armstrong’s alleged drink problems date back to before Russell’s death. As we reported to you, while out of town filming an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor got so drunk that cast and crew wanted her hospitalized because they suspected alcohol poisoning.
However, sources are telling Star magazine that Taylor Armstrong’s drinking has escalated further since Russell’s body was discovered on August 15, following his suicide by hanging. Apparently, when Russell was alive, they drank a lot together.
“IfTaylordoesn’t make a change fast, those close to her plan to take action.Taylordoesn’t know that friends and family will have a real intervention with her if she doesn’t follow through with some kind of treatment,” the source told Star magazine, adding that Taylor Armstrong is cyrrently considering becoming an in-patient at a facility in Orange County, California.
“She is trying to keep this quiet,” the source reveals. “She doesn’t want anyone to know about this.”
But really – is Taylor Armstrong now just lapping up all the publicity she is getting?
