We watched Taylor Armstrong get so drunk that she hid inside her own suitcase in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2, Episode 3, and months later the 40-year-old reality star is still drinking to excess, sources say. Eyewitnesses told Radar Online Taylor was so intoxicated while leaving Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood on January 12, she couldn’t even support herself.
“She couldn’t stand up without help and was being held up by her friend as she walked to the car. She looked absolutely wasted,” says one onlooker.
"Taylor's closest friend and advisers have told her that she needs to go to rehab," a source tells Radar. And while the recently widowed mother of one has declined offers for help, she isn’t exactly denying that there’s a problem: "Taylor recognizes that alcohol is playing a much larger role in her life than she would like, but she is refusing to go to rehab, primarily because of [her daughter] Kennedy. Kennedy has already endured the loss of her father, and Taylor just doesn't want to spend any time away from her, period.”
Taylor’s co-star, Kim Richards was recently released from rehab and is said to be doing well.
