“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong was confronted on last night’s episode by Kim and Kyle Richards, as they both seemed very concerned about Taylor’s decision to drink so much. This confrontation was encouraged by Kim’s concern that Taylor was having similar behavior to herself when she was intoxicated during the second season of the show. And now, according to her newest Bravo blog released on Feb. 26, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong reveals that she has been self-medicating for quite some time.
In this new blog released just before lunch, Taylor opens up about her dark times while filming the show. “I went through about nine months where I was drinking to cope with the pain and the memories. I was drinking to forget, to stop the recurring images in my head, to relax enough to try to sleep at night. I quickly discovered that one glass of wine made it a little easier, two would help me forget, three, four, you get the point,” she writes in her blog. “I was self-medicating and the sad truth is that I didn't know another way to get through the days -- and nights. I was confronted with the truth that the life I thought I had was only an illusion. What I finally realized was that "pain waits for you." I would medicate for a day and the next morning all the emotions would come flooding back -- not to mention the massive headache.”
Of course, Taylor had a hard time admitting to her self-medicating behavior on the show and she decided to withdraw herself from her cast members who went to Paris together. She doesn’t talk about how her drinking influenced her daughter or her relationship, but it doesn’t sound like her boyfriend did anything to help her out. What do you think happened behind closed doors?
