Is 'Real Housewives' Star Taylor Armstrong Being Fired For Being Depressed?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong

Bravo is reportedly on the verge of firing Taylor Armstrong and replacing her on the fourth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Apparently RHOBH producers are concerned about her drinking and depression following the 2011 suicide of her estranged husband Russell.

Bravo is allegedly demonstrating that concern by firing Taylor after the current season ends because they fear her storyline has become "too dark," as one source puts it.

I'm no psychotherapist, but I can't imagine that being fired is going to improve her mood and lift her out of her funk. Let's just hope she gets the emotional support and professional help she needs, so she doesn't end up another reality TV tragedy.

Meanwhile, learn more about the situation and who is being considered to replace Taylor for next season.

Do you think Taylor should be fired? Who would you like to see her replaced by? Who else would you like to see replaced from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast?

I do think Taylor should be fired, even though it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s in her best interests. When someone cannot do their job, any boss has a right to replace them. If she was in private industry, was obviously on substances, acted irrationally, and was too “dark,” would anyone object to her being let go?

Taylor reacted to her husband’s suicide by blackening his name, exploiting the tragedy, and behaving horribly. She alienated people who had been supportive of her. She’s very narcissistic, not even knowing, or caring about the whereabouts of her child, while she jets off on a sex romp with a married man.

Get rid of her. Of all the rotten role models, she’s the lowest on the food chain.

NO! I don’t think Taylor should be fired! Please, You have been profiting on her depression. Lets help her get through it. This is income for her. PLEASE BROVO have a heart! Andy, I have always respected you and Brovo! If we can put up with Teresa on Housewives of Jersey! PLEASE Taylor needs the income and help! The liar and headcase is Adrian and her goofy husband.

as irritating as taylor is, i also feel that, at this time, better to keep her employed but insist she go thru a rehab program.
through firing her you will leave her child open to God knows what. as the previous poster said, you made money these past years leading up to her husbands death, now get her into rehab and then you can decide what to do afterward.
i would not want to see her on program during her stint in rehab, she and that beautiful child, need timeto heal, without added pressure.

Yes, it’s time for Taylor to leave the show. She’s drunk and wasted and whining on every episode. Ugh, it’s so tedious to see her on the show and she should have been fired after that nightmare of season two. I change the channel every time I see that grifter and liar on my tv screen. Bravo, please cast some fun and interesting women on RHOBH!
