The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has as much drama and excitement as a circus, so it wasn’t surprising to find Taylor Armstrong at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey “Built to Amaze” show at the Staples Center on July 11. Daughter Kennedy was in attendance, and both looked happy. Perhaps it’s all the fresh air they’ve been getting, visiting Taylor’s boyfriend, John Bluher, in Colorado. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke with Taylor about the traveling she’s been doing and whether it’s an indication that things are getting more serious with her attorney beau.
Wetpaint Entertainment: You’ve been spending a lot of time in Vail, Colorado. Any plans to relocate?
Taylor Armstrong: Well we just really enjoyed the winter, we had some time off because the show was on the air so it was really the perfect time. Kennedy was working with some tutors anyway, so it worked out great. She learned to ski and just had a new perspective since she has been born and raised in LA. So it’s been good for her.
How are things with John?
He’s great; he’s amazing!
That’s one big, happy smile! Do you see yourself getting married again?
I’m open to it — we both are definitely open to it. It’s something I think would be important for her [Kennedy] to have a family unit that is put together the right way and is healthy. So we are working on that.
I see she has plenty of energy. How is she otherwise?
And she hasn’t even had any sugar yet! She is a very happy girl, she rides her bike for hours a day and then has this much energy at the end of it all; it’s amazing.
Wow! How do you keep up?
I’m thinking Starbucks right now…..
So you’re not on the show full time this season. How did you guys decide on that?
Well, it was just a conversation about the fact that my life was moving in a direction and making sure that I was really focused on the things that really mattered as far as building our family and making sure that she and John were integrated well together. Then also we were spending a lot more time in Vail and so I think the geography of it all made sense.
How has filming been so far for Season 4?
It’s been pretty good for me, I’m in such a good place now so it’s a whole different ballgame for me these days.
How has where you are at in your life now affected your relationships with the housewives?
Kyle [Richards] and I are so close, she is just loving getting to know John, she and Mauricio. They are so close with Kennedy so those are friendships that will last no matter what and with some of the other girls as well. I don’t know the new girls.
That was my next question!
No, but there is still some time left.
So you would say you’re the closest with Kyle?
Yes I’m the closest with Kyle and Kyle and Kennedy are really close.
What personal projects do you have lined up?
I have a couple projects that aren’t ready to be spoken about yet of course but I’m still doing my speaking engagements and that’s something that is really important to me. A lot of charity speaking engagements and I definitely want to keep that up.
