It’s been a hell of a year for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Taylor Armstrong, who is still processing her estranged husband’s hugely publicized suicide.
And now, friends are saying the reality star is turning to alcohol to deal with her problems. Apparently, it’s becoming so bad, they’re urging her to go to rehab.
Last week, a very emotional Taylor was spotted being consoled by a friend while she stumbled to their car after dinner at Craig’s Restaurant in West Hollywood.
“Judging by the way she was staggering she was very drunk,” an onlooker revealed. “She couldn’t stand up without help and was being held up by her friend as she walked to the car. She looked absolutely wasted."
A source tells RadarOnline.com: “Taylor's closest friend and advisers have told her that she needs to go to rehab. Taylor admits that alcohol has become her crutch in dealing with Russell's suicide, and coping with the drama of being on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills./"
She’s on the wrong show. Because on The Real Housewives of New York, the biggest drama revolves around a glass of Pinot Grigio.
Another source says: “[Taylor] is refusing to go to rehab, primarily because of [her daughter] Kennedy. Kennedy has already endured the loss of her father, and Taylor just doesn't want to spend any time away from her, period."
If anything, Armstrong has the power of friends on her side. Taylor recently told Hollyscoop:
“Obviously things are different for [Kennedy and I], but at the same time you know, we’re really blessed to have a lot of support.”
“This has been a really tough year for me,” Armstrong told Hollyscoop. “But all I can do is move on.”
