Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Blog Roundup: Taylor Armstrong’s Rags to Riches Story
In Episode 1.2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we get an inside look at Taylor Armstrong’s shopaholic tendencies. This decked-out housewife is so addicted to designer duds, she has a personal stylist (Julie) come over with a rolling rack full of garments, most with a price tag of $500 and up. Must be nice, right? But before you start judging her lack of frugality, take a look at her most recent blog and you’ll find she has a real sob story to tell. Turns out, Taylor’s just living the American dream. Once upon a time, this poor little rich girl couldn’t afford haute couture, but those days of struggle and strife are behind her. And you know what? We can’t think of anyone more deserving of Chanel.
Taylor shares her rags to riches story on her blog: Julie shows up on my doorstep with a big smile and a rack of clothes…we always have a laugh. I have enjoyed playing “dress-up” since I was a little girl playing in my grandmother’s jewelry box. Growing up, I didn’t have the means to purchase designer duds, so I feel like a kid in a candy store having the opportunity to select a few treasures from Julie’s clothing rack. Julie is a blessing to me as she gives me the most precious gift a working mom could ask for … more time to spend with my family.
