If anyone was looking to put 2011 behind them, it was Taylor Armstrong. And on New Year’s Eve, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star — whose husband Russell tragically killed himself in August — finally seemed to be moving on. She hosted the CIROC the New Year party at Enclave night club in Chicago. Her date? Close friend Jennifer Diamond, who she brought for moral support.

“Jennifer was with her all night,” a partygoer tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “Taylor was never alone, Jennifer stuck to her side like a true friend.” At the bash, Taylor was overheard telling guests that she was really looking forward to 2012 giving her a much-needed fresh start.

We hope she gets it!
