Is Bravo Planning to Kick Taylor Armstrong Off of 'Real Housewives'?
Taylor Armstrong Leaving 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
A new report from RadarOnline indicates that Bravo is planning on phasing out Taylor Armstrong from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Is Armstrong on her way out?
While Armstrong returns for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' third season, it's rumored that she'll be gradually phased out of the reality series.
A source close to Real Housewives tells RadarOnline: "Producers reluctantly decided to sign Taylor for the next season and I think a lot of their decision was based purely on the fact that they felt bad just dumping her after all she went through last year."
They don't feel bad enough, however, to keep her on staff, as the source squeals, "But, they are definitely looking to phase her out of the show gradually. The feeling is that Taylor won't really be bringing much to the table and that she's not needed anymore."
Everyone knows when you don't have any drama to bring to the Real Housewives table, your days are numbered, and the source shares that "Producers don't feel she's particularly a sympathetic character and that she lost a lot of people's respect by bringing out a book about the physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her late husband Russell Armstrong following his death."
Without the marriage drama, the source shares "she's just going to come across as dull."
Her husband, you may recall, committed suicide last August after Taylor filed for divorce.
She later released a memoir titled, Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within, which included the physical and verbal abuse she suffered in her marriage.
