Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had a pivotal moment (finally) when Kim Richards decided to confront Taylor Armstrong about her drinking. In the previous episode Taylor had called Kyle Richards to tell her that she was skipping a party in order to take a trip with her new man. At the time Kyle was babysitting Taylor’s daughter and asked if she should keep her. Taylor had no idea that her daughter was with Kyle and appeared drunk while on the phone. As Kim listened to Taylor slur her way through the conversation it seemed all to familiar to her. This was Kim a year ago.
Kim insisted that she needed to talk to Taylor and she went with Kyle to pay Taylor a visit. I have to say I was impressed with how Kim handled Taylor. She called her out on her behavior and her hard partying but did it in a way that was almost too kind. She understood Taylor’s pain and why she was running from stuff but pointed out just how badly it’s affecting her daughter. I was shocked to see Taylor cave in and admit she has a huge problem. I expected a huge fight and for Taylor to get as defensive as ever. Instead she admitted that she’s having a problem and just can’t handle dealing with the fact that her husband hung himself.
If you’ve been watching the show then you already know that Taylor needs more than an intervention, she needs a full rehab stint. She really needs to get help because as it is her daughter is already permanently missing a parent. Do you think Taylor will check herself in and get the help that she truly needs?
