Dedra Whitt from ‘RHOBH’ on her confrontation with Taylor Armstrong: “I definitely was loaded”
“Dedra Whitt is best known to fans of reality TV for her now-infamous confrontation with Taylor Armstrong on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which made headlines. In a new interview with The Examiner.
Whitt said it shouldn’t have happened, admitting, “I definitely was loaded.”
“Whitt is best friends with cast member Camille Grammer, as well as her makeup artist, and together they attended a party Brandi Glanville threw at a friend’s beach house. In one of the season’s most talked-about moments, she ended up in a screaming, crying altercation with Armstrong after coming to Grammer’s defense. Armstrong later told Lisa Vanderpump that she was too drunk to remember what she had said and done, and Whitt confirmed that alcohol played a major role in the incident.
“I don’t think I would have done that under normal circumstances ,” she told Examiner’s Sterling Whitaker.
“It was a whirlwind that night, and I definitely was loaded. I’m not gonna lie,” she added with a laugh. “I’m not gonna lie to you and say I didn’t have a few drinks. I did. We didn’t eat a lot, either. It was a wine tasting, so I had a few cocktails and a few glasses of wine, and I didn’t do a lot of eating. So yeah, not a good combo! “
Whitt said that even though the episode was embarrassing, it made for good reality television. “It made people talk,” she noted. “Isn’t that what it’s all about, kind of, in reality TV? “
Still, there is one moment she wishes hadn’t happened. “The one on-camera moment I would take back would be at the end, where I’m screaming to Camille, ‘I love you! I love you!’ she admitted.
“That was a little over the top.”
“Fans can expect to hear much more about that night during The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion show, which begins airing Monday on Bravo.
