Taylor Armstrong may be portrayed as one of those cray cray housewives, and that she may be, but whether self-inflicted or not, she’s been through hell and instead of getting professional help with her antics, she’s medicating with booze.
A source told Radaronline.com that “Taylor has been relying on alcohol to cope with the suicide of her husband, Russell, and the stress of raising a child as a single mother. Viewers got a glimpse of her drinking last season on the show when she had an epic meltdown at Camille [Grammer's] Aspen mansion. Taylor got so intoxicated that she climbed into her suitcase. It was very scary for all of the ladies to witness.”
“And that was before Russell killed himself. The fellow Housewives feel that Taylor needs to go to rehab to learn how to cope with the pressures of life without alcohol or any other substances. Taylor is in denial that she has a problem with booze. One of the reasons is why is because she is a paid spokesperson for Ciroc vodka. She earns about $100 thousand a year from that endorsement deal, and she is afraid that if she goes to rehab they will drop her.”
Isn’t that just brilliant? Giving an alcoholic an endorsement deal to promote alcohol is like giving a crack pipe to a crackhead. And if Taylor loses this deal, she’s losing money to keep those lips bigger than an Angel fish’s.
