Taylor Armstrong

Taylor's not so sure about Allison Dubois psychic abilities, or how to "get the wheels back on the bus" with the ladies.

on Dec 17, 20100

Living in Los Angeles, I have been to some pretty interesting dinner parties, but none quite so bizarre as the one that took place on this week's episode. As if tensions weren't high enough with just the six of us, at dinner, we added three more girls to the mix.

I had high hopes that the conflict from New York would end once we were together again at Camille's, but the addition of the extra guests fueled the fire.

Allison DuBois is a medium, meaning she communicates with the dead. All I can say is, I hope the conversations she has with the dead go more smoothly than the ones she has with the living. From the moment we met Allison, it seemed as though she was sizing each of us up in preparation for conflict. And by the way, what is her deal with electronic cigarettes? Mauricio and Kyle have one of the strongest marriages I have ever witnessed, and the fact that Allison attacked their marriage proves to me that she may be a medium, but she is certainly not a psychic.

The so called psychic was just a drunk lady and she should of complelety refused to any readings at the dinner party. I also agree with the other blogs that you did say that about Camille in the airport and you never say you did and let the others that the row for that. And for camille jesus i wouldn't want her for a friend and shes not that bothered about you either inout takes

I am sorry but it seems that Kyle is no different then Camille she wants to be friends with all her rich friends but when it comes to her sister she will flush her for who has more!!! Its strange that when Kyle needs help she didnt call Taylor she called her sister and excepts her to drop her life and come help so Kim must have been there for you at some point Kyle??!!!!!!! I hope Kim keeps her head and holds it high and stays out of it and doesnt let Kyle pull her down because I can see that it didnt seem to mean anything that she was their when her Hilton sister couldnt come.. I hope Kim knows she still has fans and I hope she doesnt allow these women to pull her down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel that Kim is above this nonsense!!She was the only one acting like a grown-up.

Agreed-Taylor did use the word insecure in referring to Camille -- don't beat Kim up for speaking the truth. We all saw it Taylor.

There seems to be one issue i haven't seen really discussed here, and that is the fact many of the ladies were putting Allison on the spot. They kept asking her to perform when she was a guest. Lisa (or it seems) especially wanted her to do a trick. Regardless of what was said after everyone needed to see there was blame all around.

Hey Hunoz, I think Taylor was telling Adrienne to stand up and say enough, not Kim....Taylor seems to believe that Adrienne could have/would have been able to stop the bickering.

It was certainly you Taylor that said that Camille was insecure. It may not have been malicious, but it came from your mouth, not Kim's. You should own up to it and be done with this craziness that you and Kim are always cat fighting about. This little statement has caused too much drama in all of your lives. Where's your integrity? Classy ladies do have integrity, show us yours. Kim is the underdog here but she speaks the truth, especially when it relates to you. You are always the victim, defending something that you are responsible for. We have all had something in our past that hurts us so deep and we deal with on a daily basis, but speaking the truth and knowing it in your heart is what integrity really is. Come clean, be honest, have class and dignity. Life is too short, instead of constantly finding faults and issues with each other, embrace the wonderful friendships and bonds you are making. Its so easy to be nice and kind to someone, it takes way too much energy to be mean. You may be beautiful on the outside but you are truly showing how ugly you are on the inside.

I really like you alot, Taylor. You seem very sweet and sincere. That being said, I woudl try to explain to Camille the conversation that you and Kim had at the airport, but let her know that none of it was meant to demean her. LOVE the show! I have never even watched ANY of the other "Real Housewives" series, but always watch TRHOBH!!! LOVE IT!!!

after re-watching last night I literally could not look at Taylor sucking up to Camille. It seems Taylor really needs to be Camille's friend.

Now that you have shared your past, explaining that you grew up in a abusive home and are working with women and children that are also in that situation, I'm very confused. You of all people should recognize Kyle's abusive behavior towards Kim. You condone it and participate in it.If someone is irritating ,saying something you don't agree with or you don't care for their personality it fine to scream at them or threaten them with violence. I watched the episode several times and Kim was relaying insight on her take at the airport when you flew off the handle. You stood there and let Kyle go off on her for something she didn't do and be humiliated by her sister in front of the others. Then you sat there while Kyle wouldn't take her phone calls. Kyle and Camille are both good friends as long as you agree with them and you're not the object of their anger. Lucky you! I'm sure you never gave it a second thought.

I could not believe the way she spoke to Kim, claiming she'd "take her out back and go Oklahoma on her". Excuse you??

Especially when Kim was right, YOU were the one who was involved in the "insecure" comments, and you knew it.

Lying to protect yourself is one thing; but threatening someone else you perceive as "weaker" to protect yourself is cowardly and doesn't make you much different from the abusive people you mentioned in your speech.

I totally agree, esp. about how Kyle treats Kim. She treats her friends waaaay better than she does Kim.

Taylor, Please take Kyle’s advice and expect everything! You escaped an abusive situation to rise above it all. Don't let anyone make you take a back seat in life. Not even your husband. I don't think he is a bad guy, but I think he controls you and you should stand up for yourself sometimes. Abuse has many forms as you know. Please don't sit there silent while he berates your decisions. If his friends could not make it, then so what. It’s not something you need to feel responsible for. Next time, tell him so!! Remember, you have clout in this relationship too. I believe in California if he does not fulfill his loving responsibilities to you and open his heart, you can take half of what he has. Remind him of that sometime and see if he does not put more effort into making you feel good about yourself. He should be putting you on a pedestal, not making you feel expendable. Please seek help if you feel you need to. There is no shame in it. What would you advise a woman in a lesser financial situation than you to do? Try taking your daughter with you without your husband for a few weeks to Oklahoma and after rambling around the house alone, he will be glad to see you back, and possibly appreciate you more.

Taylor is not classy. She is a golddigger, a gossip, and a backstabber. She started gossiping with Camille, which should NEVER have been said. Then she tries to play it off like there aren't CAMERAS filming you! We all SAW what you said and did. You can't deny it.

The part where Taylor said, "I want those domestic violence victims to know that they can be like me and live in Beverly hills." What does living in Beverly Hills have anything to do with accomplishing anything? Taylor hasn't accomplished anything! She MARRIED a man who accomplishes things..

Taylor obviously went after this guy Russell because he had money. I hate people like Taylor. Taylor is VERY similar to Camille.

Taylor is weak. She immediately jumps on the Kim bandwagon that Kyle started. Kim is not a scapegoat. Own up to what you said!

Taylor, another thing you did to stir the pot was call Adrienne from New York to tell her what was happening there. Why did you do that? I have to jump on the bandwagon with everyone else, you are using Kim to take your blame.

You owe Kim an apology and you need to STOP being so aggressive towards her. You have been unfriendly to her since the beginning and it is really hard to watch everyone team up against her.

Good point, I felt so bad when I saw poor Kim left alone while you girls were riding in the limo. Kyle as well was too cut up in her drama that ignored her sister. Why does she controls her anyway! She alwais sais that she was asked to protect her by her dying mother but she just put her down all the time. I dont know if she does that on purpose.

Alexia@naples
Alexia@naples

I would like to add that the fact that they all left Kim alone that night was pretty low. It was pretty mean girls in high school and not lady like act. What I dont understand is why Kyle can say what she thinks and when Kin tries to do the same Kyle just attack her. I think Kyle wants to keep her sister under control at all times. Kyle should give us a chance to see who really Kim is and not try to control and micromanange her all the time.

Hi Taylor, There are some things that you do that put me off. You need to be "real" and not try to silence Kim. Just own up to what you said. You appear to be trying to kiss Camille's arse and it's definitely not worth it. I warmed up to you the episode were you shared your past but you seem to have so much to prove it's a little annoying. It makes you come across fake, like you're trying too hard. Beverly Hills is just another place to lay your head, be grateful and don't get caught up in the bs.

Taylor, I do believe that if you wouldnt have gone back to Camille and told her that Kyle said she was insecure the whole disagreement would have gone away, but you keep going back and stirring the embers. As for Kim, she is insecure and I believe that she was just trying to stand up for Kyle and clear up the mess and say who actually said that Camile was insecure (which was Taylor). I dont think that you want Camille to know the truth becuase then maybe the psycho chick will attack you and yours. Please stay out of the middle of peoples issues and lives and concentrate on your family. From what I see, you have your hands full with that husband of yours, he seems really selfish. Sorry.

I am not sure why you feel the need to argue with Kim all of the time, but she is about as harmless and nonconfrontational as a person could possibly be. watch the episode in the airport, listen closely to the conversation then call kim and apologize.

Taylor- I really do hope that you read these blogs and you look to yourself for many of the issues that are occuring in this season of the Real Housewives. I am not necessarly a 'Kim Fan' but you make it very hard not to be. Seeing the way you turn things on her makes my heart go out to her. Kyle should realize that she would not even be dealing with this issue if it were not for you... the one who talks when she should not. Please dig deep into your heart and find patience to deal with people that you do not understand. Kim is not out to get you, it seems to be the other way around.

You really need to own up to the fact you're a part of the problem due to talking about Camille at the airport with Kim. No one attacked you - Kim recalled facts and owned up to it. You ran your mouth in front of Camille and drama began. Get over it and yourself - you helped fuel the fire and now look what happened.

Taylor, go back and review past episodes so that you can be clear on your involvement. Patch things up with Kim. It's not fair the way she's been treated by the group. Her blame is only to attempt in sticking up for her sister. I hope to see future episodes without further volatile drama. Best wishes to you and your family during the holidays. Be safe.

you would think if allison was psychic she would have told her friend camille that kelsey was leaving her. i think camille keep things going with kyle and she had allison come over to stir the pot off the clock...

Taylor, I really agree with so much that was said above. You are at the bottom of a lot of the problems between Kyle and Camille and between you and Kim. You WERE the one who mentioned "insecurity" to Kim but you didn't mean it in a mean way. Now, there was a lot of editing and things the viewers don't get to see. I'm assuming there was a lot more said about Camille being insecure that we didn't hear but if YOU hadn't said anything to her, the problem wouldn't have exacerbated the way it did. And since you were the one who stood up and stopped all the fighting at Camille's you can be the "woman" who can own up to the role you've played and probably make things better. Granted, when Camille and Kyle talked behind closed doors, Kyle said, "I don't want you to feel insecure..." she meant it in terms of feeling insecure about "something" but Camille took it that she was an insecure person and that is not what Kyle seemed to mean. The whole things is just messy but it CAN be resolved if just ONE of you would take time out and have all 6 of you over and JUST THE 6 of you. Sit down and REALLY talk like women, own up to the role each of you have played and APOLOGIZE. Now as far as Camille saying Kyle said something that Kyle says she didn't say, I don't know if that will ever be resolved, but it doesn't have to go as deep as its gone. One other thing, Taylor, sometimes its ok NOT to have someone as a friend. You seem to be the kind of person who wants everyone to like you which may be the reason you told Camille things that you shouldn't have told her. But would you really want someone like her to be your friend???

Hi Taylor: I have to admit, at first I did not like you at all - I grew up in Los Angeles and I though you were a typical, spoiled, superficial California nouveau riche. But having seen more of you, and learning more about you, I really like and admire you. The work you do for your charity is wonderful, and unfortunately so necessary. And you have come so far, and must have worked so hard, to get to where you are now. I also think (believe it or not) that your husband is a great father - he does seem genuinely to love your daughter and to enjoy spending "alone" time with her. I think maybe he is just one of those guys who is uncomfortable showing any motion except anger (only socially acceptable male emotion?), and maybe lacks some social skills. I am sure he means well. He is certainly very lucky to have you as his wife, and I hope he knows it! Keep strong!

I totally agree with you. Taylor I don't know why you are so scared to admit you were talking about Camille. Because I think Kim said "So do you think she has some insecurities?" and you shook your head yes. She is asking you a question pertaining to stuff you were saying. STOP PICKING on Kim you need to apologize.

agree with your analysis of Allison Dubois - she has issues...

I do hope that you and Kim can get your differences settled but I don't think you will be able to because of Kyle... she basically controls her sister Kim and treats her like crap... good luck though -

and go you for standing up at the dinner party and saying enough! at least someone had the sense to do that!

Taylor:

You really need therapy. You want to appear as if you are this innocent person that does nothing. The truth is that, while in New York, you were the only one that could have told Camille what was said about her. You had opportunity and, possibly, motive. You cannot get mad at Kim for pointing out what you said. Do me a favor, instead of trying to get aggressive with Kim, get aggressive with your husband. He's the one that's walking all over you.

Taylor, I agree that you are the reason for the tension between you & Kim, You did blab to Camille first off. If anything you owe her an apology for the way you feel that you can treat her.

Taylor you are the one causing conflict with Kyle and kim if you would admit you told camillie adout the girls saying camillie is insecure this might all stop. I think you just dont like kim thats why you are leaving her under the bus with her sister. She is trying to defend her by oyting you and you dont want that so you fight with her look at the airport footage you were the one making the comets just admit it and give kim a good I'm sorry and let Kyle know at least so that they can work things out they are sisters. You are showing a little of the insecurities from your background by liking someone else be miss treated and enjoying that is not you. Please stop the conflict you have started with everyone

why is it that everyone seems to miss this crucial fact and surely CG has watched the same episode we watched yet she still is picking fights with Kyle. Funny, she should have picked her fight with Kim, the weakest link. Kyle is really too much of a tiger for CG to tangle with, I find this all very amusing, especially how CG picks her battles, then sits there like a dimwit, oh please!!

Taylor good for you for putting an end to a very ugly scene at the dinner party but I have to say Kim is correct when she said you used the word insecure while talking to Camile. However I don't think you used it in a manor that was meant to be malicious and think Kim misunderstood the context of the conversation. But with out a doubt I believe Camile is a very manipulative and calculating woman who is only looking out for herself.

JillMac

Taylor, Why do you jump on Kim everytime she relates that Camille told her what YOU had told Camille? If you have an issue with anyone it should be Camille, not Kim. Is it that you were abused and you feel that you have the right to abuse someone weaker than yourself? You stated that you were the victum of abuse. One would think you would be above abusing another. Focus on what Kim was saying. She never said YOU told her such and such. She said Camille told her YOU said such and such. If you are going to go off on someone, be sure you have the correct target. Being a bully is never 'classy'.

Thumbs up for standing up at the table and putting an end to the fight. You were the only admirable person in the group.

Thumbs down for your treatment of Kim. Just because her sister Kyle treats her like garbage, it doesn't give you license to do the same. Kim is obviously NOT an alpha female, NOT socially ambitious and NOT predatory. She's offbeat, had an unusual childhood and doesn't fit in with Kyle's friends. But for you to attack her is bullyish and unattractive.

I agree. It always amazes me how people like Taylor continue to deny when they KNOW they are being filmed and the tape doesn't lie. Poor Kim is just so passive and insecure but at least she is telling the TRUTH.

Taylor- really glad you got EVERYONE out of there. Smart and classy!!! I wish you stuck up for Kyle more in your blogs. Seems as though she is a very good friend to you, so not sure why you wouldnt call Camille out for her horrible behavior. She was an inhospital host.

True - I couldn't believe the how fast Taylor flew off the handle - then laughed after "ditching" poor Kim. Not nice.

Maybe you should consider why you always feel the need to pick on and scapegoat Kim. Is it because she's the weakest? With all you've gone through, it's understandable that you would have a lot of anger bottled up, and usually it gets unleashed on the safest person. But Kim hasn't done anything whatsoever to deserve being bullied. You're not a bad person but you need to realize why you're really upset and that it has nothing to do with Kim. Let her be.

Taylor adore you but after all camille said you told her what was said at the airport she ratted on you right away why did you think you owed her any loyalty it wasnt like the woman were badmouthing her if anything they were trying to find a way to solve the problem so how do you feel about camille throwing you under the bus?

You need to watch the tape of you and Kim. You should never have gone to Camille with the conversation. I honestly think you started a lot of this situation. Don't come between Kyle and Kim - that is really low. And giggly like mean girls in the limo is really not beautiful

Taylor you are so sweet and beautiful. But you did say Camille is insecure (and it is TRUE). So please stop being mean to Kim. Kyle was so mean to her sister, too. But I do like all of you (except Camille). Has anyone noticed that Camille has brought up Kyle being "jealous" of her in every episode since they had the argument in New York. LOL, its so obvious who is jealous. Anyway, Taylor your little angel looks just like you.

Taylor you are the one who started all of this. when kim said something she was calling you out on what YOU did. if you should be mad at anyone it should be yourself. if it wasn't for you none of this would have happened.
