Here’s where OG Housewives star Taylor Armstrong is today

Taylor Armstrong, along with daughter Kennedy, played an unforgettable role in the first couple of seasons of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and will long go down as one of the most controversial personalities in the entire franchise. But not because of her doing. During the first second season of filming, she filed for divorce from husband Russell Armstrong, alleging that he was physically and emotionally abusive (via The Daily Dish).

“The moment I realized I absolutely had to leave was when they wheeled me down after surgery and my daughter had to see me in the waiting room after having reconstructive surgery on my eye,” she revealed on Oprah: Where Are They Now?. A month later, Russell Armstrong died by suicide. And despite staying on the show for an additional year and continuing to make appearances over the next few years, Taylor Armstrong eventually left the limelight and has since found her very happy ending.

Taylor Armstrong is now happily married

In April 2014, Taylor married attorney John Bluher, who helped her sort out her legal and financial issues following her ex-husband’s death. “Today, John, Kennedy and I became a family,” she told PEOPLE at the time. “I married my best friend and Kennedy’s family circle became complete,” she continued, “I definitely believe the universe put John in my path for a reason… we were meant to be.”

Taylor has also gone on to become a New York Times Bestselling Author with her book “Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within”, sharing her story with the world and doing her best to help other victims and survivors of domestic abuse (via Instagram).

She continues to be proud than ever of daughter Kennedy, who is now a teenager(!!), and continues to do everything in her power to protect her from the life she endured as a new mom (via The Daily Dish).
