Taylor Armstrong has been battling a drinking problem.
On the February 25th episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Kim Richards asked her sister, Kyle Richards-Umansky, to assist her in confronting Armstrong about her drinking.
The reality star elaborated on the episode via her blog:
“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.”
It has been a year and a half since the tragic death of her estranged husband, Russell, now Taylor says that she feels “safe” and “at peace” in her relationship with her boyfriend, lawyer John Bluher.
“I am so much happier than I have ever been. I never thought I would feel this way,” Armstrong says. “John and I have an equal respect for one another. We have a real friendship and partnership.”
She adds, “He is a beautiful man. I didn’t think I would ever be able to trust someone completely. But somehow, he opened my heart and I let him in.”
