Brandi Glanville calls out Taylor Armstrong for dating a married man

I think those of us who pay attention to these things can all agree that Taylor Armstrong of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is a mess. She’s had a well documented drinking problem for some time, she’s still recovering from her husband’s suicide a little over a year ago, and she’s dated several men in the interim. I wish her well, but she doesn’t seem together or stable by any means and I’m sure the drama from the show isn’t helping.

Taylor gushed about her latest boyfriend while on a phone interview from their vacation in Mexico last month. She sounded wasted, of course, and she really went on about how this guy was the one for her. Well it turns out that Taylor’s new boyfriend is a married lawyer and is currently in the process of divorcing his wife. It’s possible Taylor hooked up with him while he was separated, although reports claim that she’s known him since August, 2011 when he helped her with a lawsuit against her late husband. Also, the guy denied dating Taylor back in March, so you figure it out.

Well Brandi Glanville has a beef with Taylor and an opinion on this relationship. She has personal experience with how a cheating spouse can ruin a marriage and family, and in a new interview with US Weekly, she took Taylor to task for going there. Here’s more:

Never one to mince her words, Glanville is slamming Armstrong for dating a married man, telling Us Weekly, “I think she’s hurting people and I don’t have respect for that,” and has video of her interview.

“I just don’t agree with a lot of things she does,” Glanville says. “Her fundamentals are off. I feel sorry for her and her situation with her daughter [and her husband’s suicide] I just don’t think she’s making great choices. I think she’s hurting people and I don’t have respect for that, so I don’t know that I will ever be OK with Taylor.” was first to report that Taylor was hooking up with her married attorney, who has subsequently separated from his wife. Both Armstrong and Bluher vehemently denied they were romantically involved but Taylor has since come clean about the affair, gushing that the father-of-three is the “love of my life.”

Dating a married man is a touchy subject with Glanville, who famously divorced from her husband, Eddie Cibrian, after he had an affair with his co-star, LeAnn Rimes. And although she says she is happy to see taylor happy again, she doesn’t think she “is being respectful of the situation that her boyfriend is coming from. I think a lot of people know he is getting a divorce, so he’s married and has kids.”

[From Radar Online]

What I want to know is whether Taylor’s new boyfriend was legally separated, and whether his wife knew he was dating other people. If he’s separated and the divorce is underway that’s quite different from stepping out on a devoted spouse. That doesn’t seem to be what happened here and Brandi probably has more insider information than we do about it.

I’m also worried about Taylor, frankly. She suffered horrific physical abuse and a traumatizing loss. Is she even in counseling to process what happened and is she trying to change her own patterns of falling for abusive men? (Those of you watching the show can let me know if she’s seen a therapist this season, I think I remember that Taylor and Russell did go to a couple’s counselor before his death.) Otherwise Taylor is just doomed to repeated her bad choices, and given how quickly she fell for this latest one it doesn’t bode well for her. Brandi should be more concerned about Taylor’s well being, not the potential estranged wife of Taylor’s boyfriend. Of course Brandi has a lot of raw personal emotions that she’s still dealing with after what she went through, and she admits that.

These women may be privileged and well dressed, but they’re more messed up than my friends for sure. That’s their appeal, along with a high level of shamelessness.

Here’s the video interview that Radar refers to. Brandi talks about Taylor at 1:20

    Brandi is a narcisist who can’t stand it when people get more attention than her. Of course she doesn’t have any compassion for Taylor and her self destructive ways.

    • Susie Q says:

      Why should she have compassion for an idiot? Taylor showed herself to be a drunk/fool/liar from the start of the series, can’t even blame her husband’s suicide for her behaviour, she’s been an ass right from the start.

  2. jano1981 says:

    Why is who ever is in the picture from behind with hair down wearing two different shoes? A boot and a sandal??

    • someone says:

      i think that’s brandi. by the looks of it, it’s some cast or something? cause the next picture she’s wearing the same thing, maybe she injured her foot? idk

      • jano1981 says:

        That’s all that makes sense. I didn’t notice it was the same woman in the photo below it too I think I was blinded by the scarf! 🙂

      • LAK says:

        Brandi broke her foot or ankle, can’t remember which, and wore a boot for most of last season. I presume this picture was taken then.

    • Debra says:

      Brandi hurt her right foot a few days ago (at her Birthday party)

  3. brin says:

    Brandi is spot on, she knows of what she speaks. Taylor is a mess.

  4. Cam S says:

    Did she just imply that Taylor might be bi-sexual?

  5. MonicaQ says:

    I think Ms. Glanville needs someone to talk to, like a professional. Finding out the man you married is cheating on you and having to watch the whole world see it…I can’t really imagine it. She obviously still has a lot of anger–rightfully so I thing–but she needs to find a place to put it.

  6. LAK says:

    In a battle of brandi vs taylor, I’ll take Brandi. Always. Taylor may be a mess, but she is a shameless grifter who has been proven countless times to have a very loose relationship with truthfulness. It MUST burn her that she remains unaccepted in the group despite all her grifter efforts and Brandi, shamelessly letting it all hang out including fact that she’s broke, (for BH) is.

    • Relli says:

      Definitely. Taylor [FORD] is the NUMBER 1 reason I was turned off on all the RHW shows, BH in particular. The stuff that has surfaced about her and her past is shady as hell. Her and her creepy mouth give me nightmares.

      Last year I was still on the fence about RHWBH until befriended this person whose parents had both committed suicide due to financial reasons. What they had to say about the experience gave me perspective on what it must be like to live through something that
      and how awful it must be to watch people tear your loved ones apart while you are not only trying to heal but also mourn.

  7. Zorbitor says:

    If the lawyer does divorces he prolly bangs half his clients after he wins them big settlements. Oooo, thank you Daddy!

  8. Shelly says:

    I like Brandi, but in this case I think she needs to mind her own business. Taylor is a shrew, but whether or not she started seeing this man before or after he was separated is not affecting Brandi’s life in any way. I can’t stand Taylor, but really, Brandi needs to just mind her own business.

  9. Bella Bella says:

    I love Brandi. She’s right on point about Taylor. First of all, she’s not in the least bit “recovering from her husband’s suicide”. Taylor’s a grifter.

  10. EmmaV1 says:

    Brandi needs to get off her high horse…first commenting on the K-stew affair and then this. She’s not involved and needs to shut up about it.

    I would have more sympathy if she didn’t use her own divorce/cheating husband to garner more attention for herself.

    Plus isn’t Brandi the one ostracized from the other housewives…? That interview with Steve Jones where they all sat away from her. How would she know what’s going on?

  11. marie says:

    they both need to stop f’in with their faces.. and that’s all I got to say about that..

  12. Rita says:

    Brandi’s cool and Taylor’s pathetic.

  13. JPC says:

    Team Brandi. Taylor is horrible, with that ugly mouth that haunts my dreams. *shudders* She’s shrill, petty, vindictive and I am ready for her to not be on the show anymore. I miss Camille — bring her back!

  14. Stars and Stripes says:

    I love at the dinner scene at Yolanda’s how Taylor was drunk and putting Brandi’s business out there that Brandi slept with everyone in BH.!! Hello Taylor Trash!!! You are sleeping with a married man. !!!

    • Debra says:

      Yes!!! I loved the look on Yolanda’s face while listening to Taylor

      she looked like she could cut a b**ch very easily

  15. Gm says:

    I hate Taylor. Such a ruthless opportunitist.

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    They both look like evil clowns. I really detest RHOBH. They act like spoiled junior-highers.

  17. kerrh says:

    Brandi seems like a cool straight shooter. On the other hand, Taylor comes off as a money-grubbing home-wrecking mess.

    I’ve watched RHBH and have to say that Taylor has monopolized and derailed the show with her hard-core psychological issues. With the problems she has she should not be on such a show. She legitimizes her being there for income to support her daughter and to promote her domestic abuse cause, however it’s really all about self-motivated money grubbing since all she wants to do is live in a wealthy zip code – and will even destroy a marriage to stay there. Here’s an idea – go back to school, get a job off camera, get therapy Taylor! The irony is how judgmental she is of other castmates behavior on the show – what hypocritical nerve!

    As a viewer of the show, I wish Bravo would remove her and her serious psychological problems from the show. Taylor is nothing but a downer to watch and the last type of person deserving of a paycheck for simply “being herself”.

  18. Holden says:

    Looking at their faces makes mine hurt.

  19. Chisme says:

    Team Brandi. Taylor [whose stories of physical abuse I do not doubt] is a liar and a grifter. The Daily Beast has done a few articles breaking down her shady history, one of which is hilariously entitled “The Real Grifter of Beverly Hills” (, another of which questions the veracity of some of the claims in Taylor’s book ( She comes across as manipulative and willing to do anything for the sake of keeping up appearances.

    • Sassy says:

      Thanks for the links. Amazing crooks! I always have loved Diane Dimond.

    • Relli says:

      Oh yeah that Shanna Hughes is one BIG OLD PIECE of work isn’t she?

    • d b says:

      Thank you for the articles. Amazingly, people still buy Taylor’s act. Not one story of Taylor’s has borne out. Brandi was asked a question and she answered it. She’s the only one connected with the show to comment publicly. Good for her.

    • kerrh says:

      That is just creepy – clearly Taylor is trying to hide something – there is no other reason for having so many aliases.

  20. hooblie says:

    I see their two faces and all I hear is this:

    B: meowwww rroomeoww

    T: meoww meeowwwwww

    Cat fights with cat faces.

  21. Vesper says:

    Of course Brandi speaks out. She just can’t help herself. I think she likes to hear the sound of her own voice.

    There is a difference between being honest when it is appropriate and constructive, and taking advantage of every possible opportunity to be mean and put someone down. It was obvious during the reunion show that Brandi had no empathy for Taylor’s situation, and even raised speculation that she was abused at all, when there was physical evidence. Yet, she expects eternal pity because her marriage broke up.

    Brandi needs to STFU and work on her own misfailings.

    • Cam S says:

      Vesper: Brandi was asked a question and she answered honestly. Kinda like we all come here to comment on others…

    • kudzuqueen says:

      Hilarious that you just said STFU Vesper. That’s what I wanted to say to you on the other thread but thought we couldn’t say that. I guess I stand corrected.

    • Sal says:

      Vesper, 99% of viewers raise doubts about Taylor’s alleged abuse, simply because there is NO physical evidence at all, whatsoever, and it was proven there never was. Taylor lied, when she is the one with a hair-trigger temper, is quick to anger and get in the other women’s faces, screaming. She was the abuser in the family and she drove a man to suicide. To compound that, she writes a book capitalizing on her sending a man to suicide and had her daughter, HIS daughter, draw hearts in the books in book signings, of a book that smears the memory of her father. What Taylor did was evil and unforgiveable, and no human being with blood running in their vains could ever feel anything but loathing and disgust for that creature Taylor. To dance on a man’s grave like that, Kennedy’s father’s grave, shows not only that she has no sensitivity chip, but that she is lower than low. Brandi said what any decent moral human being would. You are just being contrary and finding fault with Brandi for the sake of it, even if it makes you look stupid.

  22. jk says:

    I cant believe anyone really gives a damn about how Brandi feels about Taylor lol Brandi needs to mind her own business, stay sober and try to support her life style, since LR supports her kids. It is pretty well known that Taylor started dating him after he split
    and filed for divorce, In CA once you move out and file you are free to date anyone you want and you just cant remarry for 6 months after the divorce is final. Brandi is no saint and I am so sick of her MORAL attitude. The queen of one night stands needs to STFU.

    • kerrh says:

      What’s worse? Sleeping with a married man who has kids while still married yourself or having a one night stand when you are single and unattached?

    • Sal says:

      Actually, it is well-known that he was still living with his wife when Taylor went after him, there was no separation so Taylor is a homewrecker. This is a fact. And there is nothing morally wrong with one night stands, you can’t compare that with destroying a family. There is something very wrong with you if you can’t see the difference.

  23. alxandra says:

    After the age of 35 everyone is married. So the dating pool of single guys is non-existent. As long as is between to consenting adults… that’s life.

  24. Tuxedo Cat says:

    Taylor seems to expect the highest level behaviour from everyone but Taylor….
