You've really gotta admire Taylor Armstrong.
Despite going through a painful divorce, the reality star was - somehow, some way, against all odds - able to rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars by exposing her personal life on season two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
"There were a lot more tears, a lot more pain," Armstrong tells E! News, previewing the show's September 5 return. "It's been such an emotional ride for me this year. And it's one thing to experience it, but then to watch it again on television and know that millions of other people are watching, it's going to be tough."
We're guessing the padded bank account and increased fame will soften the blow a bit.But what about Taylor's five-year old daughter, Kennedy?
"We're just trying to really take it day by day right now and trying to keep her life as consistent as possible and make sure she knows that she's surrounded by so much love and we're so fortunate that she really is," Armstrong says.
On season two, Taylor will be joined by the same cast of spoiled, self-centered characters from season one, along with new co-stars Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey.
