The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Taylor Armstrong and Dana Wilkey were reportedly friends before the show started filming. So it is only natural that Dana stepped up to the plate when Taylor needed a support system when she ended her marriage to Russell Armstrong before he committed suicide in August. And now Dana is sharing her perspective on why the other women on the show weren't there by her side when Taylor needed them. Although one could speculate that it was because of all the stories Taylor fed them, Dana believes it was the White Party incident that changed everything.
In her blog posts on the official Bravo website, Dana shares the following theory: "After the White Party, the women had really seemed to turn their back on Taylor, and I wanted her to know I was there and that her friends that were so important to her would come around." In fact, Dana often told Taylor that the women would get frustrated with her behavior and question her stories about Russell. And as shown on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the women were questioning whether the alleged abuse stories were indeed true. It is hard to believe something when you don't have any evidence.
So the women weren't there for Taylor because she wasn't being honest about her marriage? While it makes sense from the women's perspective, it also makes sense that Taylor didn't want to spill all the details given that Russell wanted to keep everything private. Who is right in this situation? Are the women bad friends for turning their backs on Taylor or was Taylor right in telling lies to save her own skin?
