Taylor Armstrong’s First Christmas Without Russell

December 25, 2011 09:00 AM by Megan Thompson

Taylor Armstrong and her daughter, Kennedy, will be celebrating their first Christmas without Russell Armstrong.  There is no doubt that this Bravo star has had a rough year, but she is determined to move on.  Keep reading to find out how Taylor and Kennedy are coping this holiday.  Plus, Taylor shares what Kennedy is asking Santa for!

This past summer Taylor Armstrong’s estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide.  Although Taylor was in the process of leaving her husband, his death crushed her. Russell’s family believed that the show, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills,  had a lot to do with his untimely death.  This season of RHOBH has shown glimpses of the marital problems between the couple. 

After Russell’s death, Taylor wanted to concentrate all her energy on her five year-old daughter. This first Christmas without Russell is no exception.  Taylor told E! that her first Christmas without Russell is different, but they are getting through it.  Taylor and Kennedy are still doing their usual Christmas traditions together, like putting up a tree, but it isn’t always easy.  Taylor told E!, ”Once it was up and decorated I felt like OK, we did it.  We got through it.  Right now for us, it’s just day-to-day and realizing that we’re going to make it.”

So what is little five year-old Kennedy asking for this Christmas?  An iPad of course!  And her mom will make that wish come true.  “Unfortunately, if that’s the one thing she wants, I’ll cave in and give it to her,” Taylor shared.  It looks like Kennedy is going to get a Beverly Hills style Christmas!  Can you really blame Taylor for wanting to spoil Kennedy this Christmas?

    If Taylor wanted to concentrate all of her time on Kennedy, she wouldn’t have left her alone on two recent weekends (skiing trips in Colorado and Utah) and would be with her on New Years Eve instead of going to Chicago to promote Vodka and Bravo.

    She filed for divorce, remember? She wouldn’t have spent Christmas with Russell, even if he hadn’t committed suicide. people should stop treating her like a grieving widow, especially since she said she didn’t feel ‘safe’ until after he was dead. Sounds pretty happy to me..

    @Karen I totally agree with you. She would keep Kennedy out of the spot light and in her arms. What kid doesn’t need there strongest person when something like this happens? It goes to show Taylor needs to rcondsider who comes first!
