Taylor Armstrong has finally laid her husband to rest.

One year after Russell Armstrong took his own life and Bravo milked every second out of that tragedy for the sake of ratings, sources confirm that Taylor has cremated him and interned Russell's urn at a plot in Hollywood.

“Taylor Armstrong attended the placement of Russell’s urn,” an insider tells Celebuzz. ”She was the only one to attend and left a single flower, at the site. Russell was interred in a classic cross mahogany urn.”

Because there had been contention over just where Russell would be buried, another urn containing his ashes was sent to Roselawn Memorial Park in Denton, Texas, the location where his surviving family members - including mother John Ann Hotchkiss - wanted him to rest.

Taylor, meanwhile, has been filming the new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She reportedly suffered a "catastrophic meltdown" earlier this summer.

She really, really sucks.

Following what one source described as a "catastrophic meltdown" while filming a scene on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor Armstrong is reportedly taking it easy these days.

"Taylor has been noticeably more subdued and under control since the horrible trip to Ojai," a Bravo insider tells Radar Online, referring to a cast trip to the Ojai Valley Inn where Armstrong appeared totally wasted. "She is trying to curb her drinking when the cameras are rolling because she recognizes that she has a very low tolerance for alcohol.

With Taylor having milked the suicide of Russell Armstrong for as much attention and money as possible, she's allegedly "nervous that producers are going to ax her at some point" because she is no longer interesting.

Taylor Armstrong is continuing to fall apart before our very eyes. Or before Bravo cameras, really, as producers' plans luck may have it.

Armstrong, Taylor

Following reports of Armstrong getting blitzed at a recent kids' birthday party, sources now tell Radar Online that Armstrong suffered a "catastrophic meltdown" during a spa trip over the weekend.

"Taylor was wasted from the moment she appeared in the morning until the moment she collapsed at night," claims this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills source. "It was a horrific sight to see. She totally lost control of her emotions and her temper. She is an absolute complete mess, but she refuses to acknowledge that she has a problem."

Well, sure. That's because the script hasn't called for it yet.

The incident took place at Ojai Valley Inn, with witnesses claiming Armstrong was "all over the place" while shooting scenes with cast members. These same friends have allegedly been pushing for Taylor to enter rehab. Expect the crux of her season three storyline to be this supposed substance abuse problem.

Score another point for those pushing Taylor Armstrong into rehab?

According to a Radar Online source, the troubled Real Housewife of Beverly Hills got drunk this weekend... at the birthday party for Kyle Richards' four-year old daughter, Portia.

And - what do you know?!? - the incident was captured by Bravo cameras filming season three.

One Terrible Housewife

"It's extremely worrying that Taylor would get blitzed at a birthday party for a four-year-old girl," an anonymous party guest says. "Taylor was drinking white wine and it was truly sad to see - she was slurring her words and she got very emotional the more she had to drink... she clearly is in a great deal of distress right now and she desperately needs help."

Witnesses confirm that all Housewives were in attendance at the shindig, with the exception of new cast member Yolanda Hadid.

No premiere date has been announced yet for the third season of this scripted nonsense, but rumors continue to swirl that Taylor will be phased out - with her only storyline based around this drinking problem - and that Lisa Vanderpump totally sucks.

Taylor Armstrong has a drinking problem that her friends believe should lead this reality star into rehab, and we know what you're thinking:

Taylor Armstrong has friends?!?

Taylor Armstrong, Daughter

Kennedy Armstrong is as cute as her mom is awful.

Apparently, or else Radar Online is simply making up sources, which seems unimaginable.

According to that site, producers plan to address Taylor's reliance on alcohol on the show's new season, which started shooting last week.

"The fellow Housewives feel that Taylor needs to go to rehab to learn how to cope with the pressures of life without alcohol or any other substances," says an insider. "Taylor is in denial that she has a problem with booze."

A contributing factor to Armstrong's hesitation to seek help? She does not want jeopardize a $100,000 endorsement deal with Ciroc Vodka.

Aside from exploiting her alleged addiction, Bravo doesn't have grand plans for Taylor on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She will be likely be phased out, this mole claims, due to a lack of an "interesting hook."

"Everyone's concerned that without the marriage drama she's just going to come across as dull. It's unlikely that she's going to be able to start publicly dating again so soon after Russell's death and with her money troubles she's unlikely to be leading any kind of aspirational lifestyle."

Camille Grammer is officially out of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Might she soon be joined by a pair of now-former co-stars?

Insiders tell Hollywood Life that Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards will be phased out of the upcoming season because Bravo wants to make room for a pair of new castmates: Yolanda Hadid and Marisa Zanuck.

Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards

“Taylor’s appearances on Housewives will be greatly reduced," a source says of Armstrong. "The producers don’t want to concentrate on Taylor anymore. They want a fresh start and new storylines.”

The same apparently applies to Kim, who recently completed a stint in rehab. According to this same mole, Richards' appearances on season tree "will be minimal."

What do you think of this news? Will you miss Taylor? Kim? Or are you looking forward to Armstrong having more opportunities to make money off her husband's death?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show finally concluded Monday night with visits from Dana Wilkey, Kim Richards and the house husbands.

If you missed the previous two reunion shows (yes, it's a three-part affair) and all the drama therein, follow these links for recaps of Part I and Part II.

Then, join us as we recap the nude photos, conspiracy theories, and alcohol abuse right here in THG's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills +/- review ...

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Cast

What does Taylor say would give her great solace? The possibility that her husband was murdered. What?!? Minus 20. Okay, she doesn't come out and actually say the words but that's what she's implying.

Then she regales us with tales of Russell. Every week her stories become more horrific. This time she tells of Russell secretly recording her and forcing her to take a polygraph test to prove she wasn't cheating on him.

Then there's a story about Russell assaulting both Taylor and her friends and trying to drown Taylor in the pool but she somehow convinced her friends not to press charges. Some friends. Minus 15.

Brandi voices that these stories don't make sense to her and Camille agrees that the stories are simply horrifying.

So is Taylor telling the whole truth and she was just too terrified to leave or are we missing Russell's side of the story. I suppose we'll never really know.

Moving on from the appalling to the laughable, Dana makes an appearance. Minus 10. Dana's always annoyed me and what's up with the whole Dana / Pam thing? Which is it?

Taylor Armstrong has released a memoir that she claims is all about helping victims of abuse, not profiting from the August 2011 suicide of husband Russell.

Of course, organizations that help victims of abuse are still waiting for their proceeds from sales of "Hiding from Reality."

  • Taylor Armstrong on the Street
  • Taylor Armstrong Book Cover

New excerpts from this book have now hit the Internet, so you may read them for yourself and judge Taylor accordingly:

On her sex life with Russell: He would make comments when we were sexual... about my weight. No woman needs to be criticized in that moment - criticisms about having sex with me is like 'having sex with a skeleton.'

On still loving Russell: I love him to this day and miss him terribly. I got out way too late. I hope by others hearing the story they may get out sooner. When I wrote Hiding From Reality, I wanted it real and honest. Some of it was difficult to write.

On the lasting scars of abuse: I think you can see my eye has healed, but these things are going to stick with me a long time and sometimes, the emotional can hurt worse than the physical almost.

What do you think of Taylor Armstrong releasing a memoir?

After last week's Part I, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion show continued with more drama last night as Brandi and Taylor join us for the full hour.

Let's recap it all with THG's +/- review!

Last week they took shots at Lisa but now it's time for Brandi Glanville bashing. We like Brandi. Yes, she's brash but she's also fun, entertaining, and says what she thinks to someone's face instead of behind their back. There's a concept.

No wonder she doesn't quite fit in with the Beverly Hills crowd. Plus 20.

Brandi in the House

Brandi hit the scene this season with high heels, no bra, and even on crutches she had legs that wouldn't quit. So being younger and prettier meant that she immediately made enemies and it was wonderful entertainment. Plus 10.

So Andy takes us back to Game Night where Kim and Kyle's mean sides came out and Brandi called Kyle a bitch and threatened to kill Kim. Ah, good times.

At least Kyle's owning her mean girl title that night so Plus 8.

Even Lisa admits she was mortified when she saw the actual footage. She backed Kyle but hadn't known how she acted. 

But Kyle's quick to backtrack when Brandi calls her on hiding her crutches. She didn't do it, her sister did. Yeah, but she still walked off leaving Brandi sitting there not knowing where her crutches were.

That was simply childish and she's not owning up to that one. Minus 10.

Taylor Armstrong clearly sucks. The reality star has gone out of her way to trash her late husband and exploit his suicide.

But, come on people, that doesn't mean this Real Housewife of Beverly Hills should die.

Sadly, no one told that to @Hardboiledpeggs, a moron on Twitter who posed a pair of vitriolic message on Sunday night, first writing to Taylor "see u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u," and then adding of daughter Kennedy, 5:

"Turn around bright eyes every now and then, Kennedy's dead."

Taylor "Awful" Armstrong

Armstrong replied to both messages with: "Don't ever contact me again."

She'll be at a book signing on February 7 in New Jersey and sources confirm that an increase in security has now been approved for the event.

An insider tells Radar Online that the incident has been "turned over to the FBI" and Taylor "will do whatever is necessary to protect herself and Kennedy. Taylor is assisting the FBI with the investigation, and she wants the person responsible for the the threats prosecuted.”

Would we put it past Taylor Armstrong to make up this Twitter handle, which has since been deleted, and conjure up this entire tale for the sake of publicity? No. But we'd never come out and make such a claim.
