Times are tough for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong. The blond bombshell is not only reeling from the suicide of her estranged husband, but she now has to contend with the financial ruin he left behind. Armstrong's husband Russell hanged himself two weeks ago after the pressure of financial and marital problems got the best of him. Russell was also being investigated for beating the living crap out of his wife on a pretty regular basis. To add insult to injury, Taylor is hardly privy to the highlife that was portrayed on the Bravo reality show. In fact, she's having trouble making ends meet, according to sources. An insider tells Radaronline.com that her Housewives salary isn't going to cut it. Says the source, "Taylor is desperately trying to figure out how she is going to live and support her daughter. She is struggling to make money right now. She had plans to write a book before Russell committed suicide, but now she doesn't know what she is going to do." Even though the couple played the part, it's more a rags than riches story. The insider adds, "Taylor is scrambling to find a way to earn a living, but she isn't sure how she's going to make end meet. Taylor's salary from the Bravo reality show was not as lucrative as they wanted people to think. Everything is currently on hold." It's only a matter of time before this housewife is featured in another reality show like, say, Extreme Couponing.
