Taylor Armstrong of ‘RHOBH’ Denies Being Approached For ‘Dancing With The Stars’ [AUDIO]
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘” Taylor Armstrong stopped by “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Wednesday to discuss what she really thought of Brandi Glanville’s comment about her book, seeing Kim Richards since she’s been out of rehab, whether or not she actually likes her cast mates and addresses rumors that she may be on “Dancing With The Stars.”
With the cast announcement for the new season of “Dancing With The Stars” less than 2 weeks away, there has been speculation that Taylor may be on the upcoming season. Taylor tells us she has not been approached by the show, but says she would be open to it. “I can dance,” she says confidently. “I’ll cut myself down for pretty much anything, but I actually can keep a beat.”
Even though we watched the drama unfold this past season, Taylor tells us, “The original 6 of us, we’re like a family. We’re like a crazy dysfunctional family, like everybody else’s family. We are all really close.” Just the other day she had lunch with Kim Richards, who is recently out of rehab. “She looks amazing, she looks like that girl from ‘Escape To Witch Mountain‘ again. She looks better than I’ve ever seen her look,” she says.
Ryan then played back a clip from the reunion show where cast mate Brandi Glanville commented, “It’s been a hot minute,” on it being too soon for Taylor to write a book on her estranged husbands death this past August. “I can understand that, it was a hot minute for her. It was 6 years of abuse for me. So, it didn’t seem like such a hot minute in my opinion. I can’t bring my husband back. I loved him, if I could, I would,” she says. “I didn’t write this book for Brandi, I wrote it for all the people that are living in these situations.”
One of the reasons Taylor wanted to tell her story was to explain why she stayed in a relationship that was both physically and verbally abusive. “The cycle of domestic violence is one of the hardest things for people to understand, that back and forth and how you can love someone who is harming you. It’s a slow boil with domestic violence,” she says.
The book is titled “Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within” and it is available now and Taylor will be signing copies of her book tonight at The Grove in Los Angeles at 7pm.
