Taylor Armstrong was one of the MANY celebrities hanging out at the OK! Magazine pre-Oscar party over the weekend, and let me just say we didn’t see her two-fisting booze bottles in her hands! The magazine sponsored Oscar weekend with their highly-anticipated, star-studded, Pre-Oscar party in celebration of the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony. Celebrities came out to Hollywood’s newest hotspot, Emerson Theatre, for an energetic evening to start off the weekend of festivities. Oscar-inspired cocktails like ‘Les Mis blue Raspberry Martinis’ were served and guests enjoyed mini-makeovers by Sexy Hair and Armstrong even chatted it up with Celebrity VIP Lounge on the red carpet.
We got a couple real juicy tidbits out of the reality star and yes, Armstrong did touch on those alcoholic rumors. So what does she make of Kim Richards’ allegations? Armstrong told Celebrity VIP Lounge exclusively, “I’ve known a lot of people who’ve gone through recovery. I have a really close friend who’s been sober for 20 years and I know that you don’t approach others about their issues when you’re someone who comes from those issues. I have people who approach me constantly about domestic abuse. I never give advice, I refer them to a hotline or to get some help that’s professional. Although I’ve gone through it, I have no business giving other people advice because I think that every situation is different. And I went through hell, so there was a time when I was probably drinking too much to forget some of the graphic memories that were hovering around me. I’m not sure that that’s the right way to go about it.”
Armstrong went on to say that even though some of the episodes can be difficult to watch, she still does even if a particular cast mate (ahem Kim) stirs up trouble. She explains, “Kyle is one of my best friends and Kim is her sister. I don’t socialize with Kim so I don’t know where she’s extrapilated this diagnosis from but if it’s her opinion I appreciate it if it’s coming out of the goodness of her heart out of concern for me… I watch it all.”
As for those rumors about Leann Rimes joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, Armstrong isn’t particularly thrilled. “It would go from Real Housewives to the UFC!’ Every season there are rumors about people leaving. We haven’t even been picked up for season 4. No decisions have been made,” she said.
So you’re saying there’s a chance…
