Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Shana “Taylor Armstrong”… The “Reward” Chart…VIDEO

On tonight’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills…

Dr. Sockless goes to Shana’s house…  

Hmm… why would Sockless go in to Shana’s house? Why not just have Shana hop in the limo?

Well, anyway… they get to talkin’ about what work the assistant Julie Shana has put into a huge chart for her 5-year-old… a “reward” chart.  Wonder how that works???  



NOTE:  The following is a suggested chore/reward chart for a five-year-old…

  1. #7. No Whining
    #10. No Talking Back
    #ll. No Yelling
    #20. No Interrupting
    I think Taylor should take her own advice and work on these four points herself! All we’ve seen her do all season (and last season) was whine, talk back, yell, and interrupt. Kids learn from their parents’ example. Poor kid doesn’t stand a chance.

  2. That list is wayy too long for a 5 year old. That’s a lot of pressure for a little girl to take on. Taylor wants to set all these boundaries for Kennedy, but look at how she herself is acting and behaving? TRAYLOR IS TRASH! DISGUSTING PIG!

  3. Is it even legal for a doctor to have a personal relationship with a client outside their professional treatment time? This doctor was both Taylor’s and Rusell’s therapist so why is now siding with Taylor, and why did he not follow the law by reporting the abuse – no way would this happen in real life, thus BRAVO should put a disclaimer on the screen stating it is a staged scene.

    I cant wait for this series to be over it seems to be dragging on for ever. I think Kyle has the biggest issues on this show crying all of the time and trying to belittle her sister who is obviously really really sick. Kyle needs therapy to accept that as a child she was probably ignored and lived in the shadow of her big sisters stardom.

    • Notice you don’t see lil Kathy having lunch with Kyle. Ever… Wonder if they’re at odds due to her bitchazzness? I have 2 sisters. We don’t get down like that! Kyle is soooo Bravo!

    • She’s 5…do her feet even touch the floor when she’s sitting in a chair? I’m 25, a little over 5 feet, and my feet in some chairs graze the floor. She is a child!

  4. During the time of the launch party…. Isn’t that the same time Taylor was draining all the accounts and maxxing out the credit cards?

    • RadarOnline posted a story on Sept. 7 that Russell’s mom was interviewed by Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN and said that Taylor put $90,000 on his American Express card in June AFTER THEY SEPERATED. Here is a quote from Russell’s mom to Jane from the interview:
      “Taylor put $90,000 on there”, she said “She put $90,000 on his credit card in June after she seperated.”

  5. Greetings, I’ve been reading this blog for a few months, and appreciating the conversation/insights. I (almost) never post anywhere about this secret “pleasure” of mine (ie trash, so-called reality TV), but this Taylor creature has me a bit fed up with BravoTV and the RH franchise.

    I’ve always thought Taylor to be a highly suspect individual, from the get go, in Season 1. IMO, she came off as very manipulative, and quite ruthless, going as far as attempting to alienate sisters from each other, not to mention punishing her kid by removing the puppy her Dad had given her… Now, in Season 2, I’ve just been utterly repulsed by her attitude/behavior.

    Yet, I’ve kept on giving her the benefit of the doubt, wanting to determine for myself whether the claims of abuse at the hands of her deceased husband were true in the slightest. All this time, there has been no physical evidence whatsoever. Only after her castmates/Bravo reject her does she show up with what she wants us to believe is a black eye inflicted on her by her husband at the time.

    Yet, I’m still NOT convinced. The passive phrasing she used to describe the incident that supposedly caused the injury, never really saying Russel put his hands on her, as well as the way she says stuff, seem so inauthentic… I can’t help but think that she is lying about the cause of the black eye.

    A couple of years ago, I had some invasive dental surgery done, and after 2 days leaned down for a few minutes while gardening. That did it. Within a couple of hours, I had a nasty looking black eye, that took about 10 days to heal. It was no big deal, but scary looking, and friends were alarmed when they saw me. Just saying. It’s hard to fake a black eye with make up only, but there are many other, very effective ways, to do so. At this point, I personally would need to see the medical records of her alleged “abuse injuries”, before I can believe her. The word of the TV shrink we saw is meaningless to me. I do wonder who exactly BravoTV and her think they are fooling with all this manipulation of the truth.

    Bottom line: the whole RH franchise is fast becoming unwatchable, thanks to ridiculous creatures such as this Taylor person. She is truly repulsive. VH1 is becoming my favorite at this point.

    /end rant.

    • I wonder if she would able to show medical records from another DV victim as hers if she was forced to show proof? Remember, one of her businesses is My Medical Records. I hope measures are put in place so she can’t try to do something like that!

  6. I do have to point out Kim’s ‘bloodhound’ skills….’finding’ a baggie of coke, even empty, was an amazing skill….she must have sniffed that one down……weird how she just turned around and THERE IT WAS…..I guess they don’t clean limos in between customers? LOL

  7. Did anyone catch when Taylor said “she was going to co-parent with Russell” What abused woman is willing to leave their child alone with her abuser? I have met abused women and they are very frantic about visition rights after the marriage has ended. Taylor made that statement with no concern what so ever. I got the impression all the women are on to her. None of them cried with Taylor. Lisa was very sympathetic as well as Kyle but I didnt come away feeling like they were buying her black eye story 100%. Kyle seemed to keep studying the mark, looking at it from different angels. Paul surely has admitting priviledges at area hospitals and although this is against the law due to HIPPA, it is fairly easy to view medical records as most are electronic now. It is interesting Paul and Adrienne show no sympathy period!

    • I thought the co-parent statement was suspect as well. If she left for the reasons stated and is writing a book about said abuse; one would think she would have had a Personal Protection Order in place. Traylor should know all about such options of how to be safe bc of her 1736 resources.

    • YES!!! Why the heck didn’t Adrienne say something to that statement?? Really? Her therapist (if she really is being a patient of his or its just a friend giving her some healthy tips) would no way in HELL let Kennedy be anywhere around Russell (if the abuse was true)!!!! A BIG red flag!

      • It wasn’t on the card the tv producer put up to control the agreed to conversation. Everything they have done this season of BH just makes me sick!

    • Yes, I noticed the co-parent statement and I call BS on Taylor! Especially after her freak out at Camille and her saying, “she put my child in danger! You don’t know what she’s done! She put my child in danger!”. She is so full of it I can smell her from here.

      • I think Adrienne believed all of it as much as the largest percentage of the viewers did, not to mention I am sure Paul and Adrienne have discussed privately what Paul has or most likely has NOT found while examining her face or giving her injections. Your not going to be able to pull one over on the wife of a plastic surgeon so her reaction screams loud and clear when she speaks, she dang sure wasn’t letting Shana get away with the no apology to Camille. She is the only one who stood her ground. In her “interview” just the way she talked about all of the stories and expression on her face said it all for me.

  8. Well; like a blogger mentioned a while back Traylor has a knack for ruining all the get togethers; her drama is too much; If I am out for a good time; the last thing I want to do is have some drinks with friends and the drama queen shows up with the shrink to discuss; talk about a buzz kill!! As for Kim; it wasn’t even funny it was plain uncomfortable to watch what a mess and when her make up was getting done at the hotel was it the lighting or did it look like she herself had a bruise on her face?? Lisa; I do wonder if the rumors of Bravo setting up for Cedric to show up are true and why was Paul’s x-girlfriend there; the other rumors that Lisa doesn’t like Adrienne???? The only people coming off grounded are Brandi and Camille.

    • I think Paul’s ex-girlfriend being there was just a fluke. Lisa and Adrienne met living across the street from each other and Adrienne and Paul were already married by then. How would Lisa know who Paul dated before marrying Adrienne? I also suspect Lisa was unaware that one of her waitresses dated Brandi’s ex-husband before he was her ex. I mean, how would such a conversation go, “Hi Lisa, checking my for my shift. Oh, did I mention that louse I was dating who broke my heart was the husband of your friend Brandi? Yeah, he dumped both of us for that slut Leanne. Who’d thought Brandi and I would have so much in common, huh?” LMAO

      I agree, the only ones who didn’t embarrass themselves were Camille and Brandi. And they are the party girls on this show, LOL!

    • And in light of all the whisper campaigns about Lisa possibly being a freak in da sheets (swangin) check out Lisa grabbing onto that glob of cotton candy…. very suggestive dont cha think?

  9. While Kennedy’s columns had lots of colored dots, Traylor’s columns were empty. I guess those lips make it tough to chew with your mouth closed.

  10. I hope that the L.A board gets a lot of complains about Dr. Sophy he broke the law! If he knew what was happening and he did not reported that’s crime and never mind that he’s in charge of kids in foster care.

  11. I am soooo glad but not surprised to see that you, Ms SH, put up this blog about that stoopid list for Kennedy! You and comments are correct: there are WAY too many items on that list for a 5 year old child…and a “DR.” in charge of children’s welfare SHOULD KNOW THIS! *clueless much?*
    So many items are about Kennedy “USING HER VOICE”…. I count 7 !!!!! out of 20 quickly (didn’t see #1). Also, too abstract for a 5 year old. 5 year olds aren’t thinking ahead about everything that comes out of their mouth every second. If they had that much impulse control, I think we could just emancipate them at 5.
    Dr Paul could access Shana’s records despite HIPPA because he has treated her as his patient so he can legitimately look at her records. Telling that the Nasif-Maloof’s ain’t buyin’ the story. Dr Paul wouldn’t have to divulge anything about Taylor’s medical records to Adrienne, but he could discuss with Adrienne that he thinks it is best to not buy into Shana’s BS.
    I have to go let a lot of CROWS loose, I had been saving them up for recipes but I’m going to open the window and send them back to freedom. FLY FREE BIRDIES!

  12. I posted this before, but it was removed. (I’m glad I now know posts are moderated….Especially since most of the posts aren’t nice. Easy to see SH real colors now.)

    I think people should leave the kid out of it. There is a line you just don’t cross and many of the posters on here are crossing it. You don’t ever go after someone’s child unless you know they are in grave danger. I don’t like Taylor at all, in fact, I’m so appalled by her behavior that I get online in my moments of weakness and read about it. Taylor is a louse of a person, but the fact that people get on here just to rip her parent style is not nice at all! Every woman has a right to give birth (if they can) to their own child and raise that child as she sees fit. As far as I can see the only crime Taylor has committed against her daughter is neglect/ignoring her, which unfortunately isn’t child abuse.

    To the people who said the child should be taken from Taylor: You are horrible! The child will be cast around to different foster homes or go to relatives that don’t want her. She’s already lost her father, so please have some sympathy. Don’t stoop to Taylor’s level by jumping at her parenting style. It’s not classy.

    On another note I think it’s kind of catty to remove positive posts or posts that don’t reflect SH sentiment. The facts are that Taylor is trouble. You definitely don’t need to monitor the posts. She’ll eat crow in the end anyway.

    I won’t bother your site anymore. Good Luck. it was entertaining.

    • I never get posts like this. If your claiming posts are monitored and deleted based on being positive praise then how did this one make it to the forum? ms SH does delete spam, cursing, and links to other sites but I’ve never had a positive post deleted. Ever. Was there some other reason your post may be pending moderation?

    • First of all “B” your previous comment @ 9:02am 1/17/12 is still there and was not deleted by Ms SH . Secondly.. she does not remove comments that don’t reflect her “sentiments”. She lets us all say our peace, but following simple rules ( without a chart ! ha ha !). It really is getting tiresome when someone posts comments here , and others might not all agree with what that someone feels , and then right away it’s Ms SH’s fault or her moderation of the comments. There were others who posted similar comments as yours.

      I fell everyone should feel welcome here , and we can agree to disagree without going whahhh ! and as some have done going off to other sites talking smack about this one.

        • I would imagine Russell’s family would love to be able to know their granddaughter . They probably have not had the opportunity to ever really know her at all since Shana kept Russell separated from his family most of the time.

      • To be fair, I have a post from Brooke that was delivered to email my inbox dated 1/17/12 6:13 a.m. that is not on here or at least I am unable to locate it (I’ve searched the page and did a quick look over the posts). Perhaps it did get caught up in a filter somewhere. The content is as follows:

        I’m not a fan of Taylor. I think she’s a horrible person, but leave her child out of it. It sounds like none of you actually have children. A 5 year old should be monitored while bathing, but a 5 year old can do things like try and wash their own hair. A 5 year old can also take a shower, which reduces the risk of drowning. Taylor only had a small space to put the tag “take bath by myself”. Perhaps “try to wash body and hair on my own” was too long. I highly doubt the child is bathing herself 100%. MEOW!!! Sheesh.

        • I should note that the email time is PST whereas my posts here time out at EST which means Brooke’s early posts and the one above were all done about the same time.

    • Righteous indignation without commensurate facts is unflattering to you. Your post is so misguided and inaccurate that it only deserves this much more > . (a period)

    • @Brooke – in the ordinary course I don’t disagree that children should be let out of discussions concerning their parents, however, this case is different in several ways. (1) Taylor’s own behavior and statements would lead any reasonable person to question her ability to parent in a healthy, reasonable matter. (2) Taylor’s obvious disregard for her own child’s best interests have been made public knowledge by Taylor herself–the above list, telling people Kennedy asked if “daddy did something stupid” (a classic case of parental alienation). (3) Taylor’s reported statement that she should never have had a child.

      Moreover, your statement “Every woman has a right to give birth (if they can) to their own child and raise that child as she sees fit.” is deeply disturbing. The mere ability to become pregnant does not entitle one to raise a child “as she sees fit.” For example, parents have been known to sell their children into prostitution for drugs and see nothing wrong with it. Another example, parents encourage their children to join gangs, do drugs, steal b/c it is the lifestyle the parent has chosen for themselves. There are also parents who were abused as children who believe abuse (sexual, physical and/or emotional) is acceptable behavior because it was what they were raised with. None of these things are accepted by society and that is why there are laws that allow for children to be removed from homes where this type of behavior is going on.

      It is contradictory to protect a child from the slings and arrows of poster’s comments about their parent but ignore that the child’s best interest and well being are not tended to by the very same parent.

        • Ah shucks, it was nothing.

          I hope Russell’s family has someone documenting Taylor’s treatment of Kennedy and what appears to be Taylor’s abuse of alcohol and maybe other substances. They won’t be able to get custody unless Taylor agrees (darn family law in CA insists on family reunification above all else, including the best interests of the child in most cases) but they can get family services involved and monitoring the situation.

          • Great job Trekker, if nothing else maybe Social Services can investigate and help Tayliar with appropriate child care and guidelines. And, most importantly, provide monitoring of Kennedy for her best interest. And lastly, maybe they could provide help to Taylor on coaching her as a parent and prioritizing Kennedy and her well being over everything else in her life. If the qualifications for removing are not already enough. Personally, as a mother, I would first like to see rehabilitation takes place since Kennedy has already lost one parent. I think Social Service would give Tayliar the attention she needs. i have a very low opinion of Tayliar as a person and mother but the truth of the matter is that foster care is a last result due to the trauma it causes little children. If Tayliar could learn what she should have learned a long time ago with regard to parenting, it would be a step in the right direction. OMI… please don;t be mad ::o(. Only thinking of how to resolve with minimal impact to Russell’s sweet little girl.


            • @mamarj – How could anyone be mad at your very compassionate view? You are right, Taylor never learned what she needed to be a good, compassionate and giving person growing up, so how could she pass it along to her daughter. Here is hoping through whatever means she learns it now. Foster care should be the absolute last resort, I just wish CA family law (and other states) would recognize that sometimes over ruling a parent’s objections and placing children with loving family members is sometimes the right answer until the parent is able to parent the child in a healthy and loving manner.

            • I agree with your last sentence, Trekker. MamaRJ, there’s no “rehabilitating” someone like Taylor Armstrong. She can learn to manage her emotions and chemical dependency better, but she can never be cured of her severe personality disorder(s). Her life and emotions will continue to be chaotic and unstable throughout Kennedy’s childhood. One would have to have the spirit of good intentions and willingness to learn how to be an effective parent. At best, Traylor is emotionally impoverished; at worst, she has no conscience or empathy. Either way, her child can never feel securely attached to her. Hate to say it, but Kennedy’s doomed to a very difficult life. I also think that Kennedy shows characteristics of fetal alcohol syndrome/exposure (FAS/FAE) which would add another layer to her difficulties.

  13. I don’t think reward charts are bad and used them myself off and on when my children were very young. They only work for a short time, then the charm wears off. This list is way too long especially taking into consideration that the child is likely unable to read at 5 years old.

    • I used them too, with pictures. A few small supervised tasks done WITH the child to teach them, stars put on chart….works very well when done age appropriate.

  14. Looks like this chart has only been going on for about a week as of that night (July the18th?) So big banged up Traylor with the bum eye socket did I fine job getting all the lines straight considering her orbital wall had done gave out on her . ibs

    • My guess is that Tayliar’s assistant took Tayliar’s list and made the chart. Tayliar would not invest that much time into her daughter. Also, I am sure the Sur opening was filmed after Russell passed away since her and dr sophia were added to the last 15 minutes of the show!!

  15. shana is such an inauthentic. has anyone noticed in addition to all of her name changes, she names her child kennedy caroline?

  16. All I did was google “At what age do you let your children bathe unsupervised?” and the second of many many results was from one of the physicians that moderates WebMD:

    “As a pediatrician, I talk about bath safety from day one. Never leave a child alone in the bath — not even for a moment. In the time it takes to answer the phone or grab a towel, a child can quickly and quietly slip and drown in just a few inches of water.

    Your toddler or preschooler can begin learning to wash herself with your assistance and close supervision. Place some liquid soap on a washcloth and show her how to wash her body. To rinse away shampoo, teach her to close her eyes and mouth as you count from 1 to 3 and pour the water over her head. If she is afraid to get water in her eyes, have her bend her head back and use a pitcher to pour the water over her hair. Don’t forget to sing songs and play games to make bath time fun.

    Generally speaking, at about age 6 a child is mature and coordinated enough to wash her body and hair without help. I strongly believe that you should still stay close by to make sure that she is playing safely in the tub, that she does not turn the hot water on, and that she is washing properly. She may also still need your help with hair washing.

    Around age 8 or 9, once she has demonstrated that she is mature enough, you may allow her some bathroom privacy or leave the room altogether. It is always a good idea to have a bath mat or bath stickers on the floor of the bath or shower to make it less slippery. Let her know you will periodically check on her to make sure she’s OK. Leave the door open and stay close so you can hear if she calls you.

    At what age are you letting your child bathe alone?

    – Dr. Tanya
    My girls are now 9 and 12 and I miss those days of shampoo hairdos and lifting their squiggly bodies out of the tub. Yes, sometimes after a long day, sitting on the floor and wanting them to finish seemed to take forever, but I’d remind myself of what happened to Ray Charles brother. Fear is a great motivator to stay awake. But Taylor doesn’t” seem to have that maternal fear of loss.
