Is Taylor Armstrong joining the cast of 'Real Housewives of Orange County?'
Since the Real Housewives franchise has been up and running, women haven’t bounced back and forth between shows that are separated by cities. Keep in mind that the franchise has been around since 2006! Taylor is certainly making history by moving from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Real Housewives of Orange County.
She joined the former back in 2010 when the show first aired on television. For the first three seasons of the show, she was one of the main housewives. Right before Season 2, she made waves on social media after announcing her divorce from her husband, Russell Armstrong.
After six years of marriage, she was ready to call it quits. At the time, she cited verbal abuse and physical abuse as the reasons. Only one month after announcing the end of their marriage, he committed suicide. Taylor moved on from the traumatic experience by becoming an advocate for people who’ve survived domestic violence in the past.
She’s become such an outspoken figure in the abuse awareness and prevention world that she’s been invited to speak at public engagements many times throughout the United States. A few years later in 2014, she remarried a man named John Bluhe. Now, they are living in Orange County –– which means it makes sense for her to jump franchises for the new city.
