Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Shana Hughes Taylor Ford Armstrong… “Taylor Armstrong Big Fat Liar”

It all comes together now about the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member, Ms. Taylor ‘I’ll get all Oklahoma on you‘ Armstrong…  IMO, I believe that we have another big-time pro-scammer couple in our midst… and Taylor Armstrong is a big fat liar…

‘Taylor’ before filming started

When the producers of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were casting the show, Taylor Armstrong went by the name of Taylor ‘FORD’ Armstrong (see previous post:  When filming started, Taylor dropped the ‘FORD‘ and she hasn’t mentioned that name again (either on websites, on RHOBH or interviews) which I thought that was kinda strange… BUT, let’s go on

As RHOBH ‘insiders’ are aware, Russell Armstrong has a very shady past (see tab ‘The MEN of real housewives’ , ‘Russell Armstrong’, on masthead above) and as RHOBH viewers are aware, his relationship with Taylor on RHOBH shows him to be disingenuous, unkind and apathetic toward Taylor… BUT, let’s go on

Russell and ‘Taylor’ Armstrong

Growing up in Oklahoma, Taylor Armstrong’s name was Shana Hughes.  The question about her name change was not fully answered until recently when she was on the January 19, 2011 episode of  The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy asked and Taylor answered that her name growing up was Shana Taylor… no mention of the last name of ‘Hughes‘ or ‘FORD‘… and that everyone called her by her last name ‘Taylor‘, so it was natural and less confusing that she just switch her last name ‘Taylor‘ to be her first name because that’s what she got used to answering to and that’s why she changed her name from ‘Shana‘ to ‘Taylor’…  just trust me on this as I’ve searched the following sites for full episodes to document this info:  hulu, youtube,,,,, etc, etc… (please email me if you can find full episodes)… I’m so ticked with myself that I erased that episode from my DVR… BUT, let’s go on

HOWEVER… Ms. Oklahoma was asked the same question one day later by Andy Cohen on Watch What Happen Live and she gives a TOTALLY DIFFERENT EXPLANATION…

Really, you would think that she could keep her stories straight… BUT, let’s go on

On the RHOBH finale, Russell and Taylor’s marriage gets another bad rap when after Russell gives Taylor his lame birthday toast, Camera Lisa says that ‘she’s glad that Russell is married to Taylor and not her‘… Camera Lisa also says that ‘maybe Taylor likes the Beverly Hills lifestyle more than she cares about her own happiness.’

Everyone is wondering why Taylor is staying with Russell… Wendy Williams comes straight to the point and ASKS Taylor why she puts up with Russell… from January 2011…

Right after, Wendy asks Taylor about her name change, but as I mentioned previously, full episodes are not available…


Shana Hughes graduates from Union HS in Tulsa, OK in 1989.  1994 she graduates college and works for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (she may have been known as Shanna Hughes or Shanna Ford when she was with Pfizer) and Medtronics.   Shana obviously liked the last name ‘Ford’ as she led people to believe that she was from the auto business ‘Ford’s from Detroit. (This really made me laugh, as everyone who knows anyone in the auto business knows that everyone lives in Bloomfield Hills…not Detroit.)

From the Taylor Armstrong Official Fan Page:  “Upon arriving in California, Taylor Armstrong set up a textile business of her own. (Upon arriving in CA, Taylor worked for CA Swimwear…) She fulfilled her longtime dream of being an entrepreneur, starting out by working at a start-up commerce company in Florida. (Where she and Russell tried to scam Allison, the author of the email in previous post…) She also picked up a few things by working for Pfizer and Medtronic along the way.”  In 2005 Taylor married Russell Armstrong and together, they have a four-year-old daughter named Kennedy.  ( Yeah… she has a fan site…

March 2010:  Taylor-Ford Armstrong was confirmed a cast member of RHOBH: (

September 2010:  Still using the name Taylor Ford-Armstrong (… “new Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple Taylor Ford and Russell Armstrong”)

November 2010:  Taylor and Russell invest in Malibu Recovery Center (… this may not mean anything, but it’s good-to-know info…

So, one of the big questions is WHY is Taylor staying with Russell?…                      The answer dawned on me when I saw the following photo… IMO, photos say a lot:  First, I was struck by her expression.  She looks like a deer caught in headlights and also looks somewhat embarrassed and scared all at the same time… and then I looked at her arm. She is squeezing Russell’s hand so tight that the veins in her arm are popping up, also notice that SHE is holding Russell’s hand and it’s not reciprocated.  It’s almost like she’s saying, “Oh, God… do these people know about us?”

Wow!  What a kiss!  Taylor is dominant and Russell looks like he would rather be scraping his elbows on a cheese grater than pretending he is interested in his wife.

Taylor is again dominant with her hand in a fist on Russell’s shoulder and Russell looks like he would rather put his head into a bag of rabid monkeys than pose for a photo.

IMO, Taylor ‘shana hughes taylor ford’ Armstrong and Russell Armstrong are pro scammers who have scammed their way to the top… they think they’ve hit it big time in Bev-er-lee Hills.   Taylor can’t leave Russell… not because of their daughter, Kennedy… but because Russell knows what’s going on between them and they’re in this together.

Kennedy and Russell do a DanceOK… shoot me, but little Kennedy isn’t that cute…

Just for the hell of it, here’s more stuff I found about these two:

Here’s Taylor and Russell’s House… it’s the one with the empty pool:

Here’s Russell and a healthier looking Taylor with Prince Charles:image description (for a larger photo see:  I’ll bet Russell never thought anyone would find that photo…   Makes me wonder if Taylor is the answer to the blind item post (… she does look much skinnier now than the Prince Charles photo   Hmmmmm…

Taylor made a very quick mention on WWHL that she is now working with (which is a site that I LOVE… YSL nail polish never chips and they sell it on their site for at least 50% off…). Of course, I emailed them to find out if Taylor was indeed associated with beautyticket… and here’s what they said:

I was blown away that Taylor is their ‘creative director’…are you kidding me beautyticket???  I wouldn’t take cooking tips from her let alone BEAUTY tips… has beautyticket LOOKED at Taylor lately???   Anyway, I replied…

My reply:  I asked about Ms. Armstrong because I wanted to make sure that the information she mentioned on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen was correct.  As a frequent customer of, I am extremely disappointed that you would have such a person representing your brand and I doubt very much if I will remain a customer.
