Taylor Armstrong has been staying out of the spotlight for the most part since wrapping up her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Armstrong really wanted to start over and settle down without an abusive spouse. These days, Taylor is married to John Bluher, and she is living in Colorado away from the other ladies.
But Taylor Armstrong hasn’t forgotten her past. Armstrong continues to reflect on the abuse and she wants to help other women who are in similar situations. Taylor had been protecting her daughter from the abuse for years, but these days she is flourishing because of two healthy parents.
According to a new Bravo report, Taylor Armstrong is now revealing that she has been very open and honest about her abusive marriage. Fans never saw any physical abuse on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she often dropped many hints that Russell was being abusive with her. Later on, pictures surfaced of Armstrong in the hospital with a black eye. Now, Taylor wants people to know that there is a life after abuse.
“I’ve always been pretty honest about my abuse once I was able to come forth with it. But I speak out now because my life has changed so much and I want other people to see that there is life after abuse, there is life after tragedy,” Taylor Armstrong has revealed about the abuse.
Kennedy was very quiet when Taylor was filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. There was a big difference in how Kennedy was acting on the show compared to other children. Taylor later revealed that her daughter may have picked up on the abuse and was keeping it all in. These days, however, things have changed.
“With Kennedy I just thank god and am so blessed now that she has the good fortune of seeing a healthy marriage that’s built on mutual respect with John and thankfully she’s going to have that now as role modeling,” Armstrong said.
Taylor Armstrong has been reflecting on her past a lot this year, as she even sat down with Oprah recently, according to the Inquisitr. But many are wondering if she wants to join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills again. Taylor has been commenting on Kim and Kyle Richards’ drama as sisters, so it is very possible that Bravo would be bringing her back to mediate between the sisters.
