Taylor Armstrong 'Happy to Start Moving On' After Husband's Suicide

Originally posted 10/26/2011 11:25AM

Taylor Armstrong is bouncing back from tragedy.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who was "devastated" by her estranged husband Russell's suicide in August, "seemed very happy to start moving on with her life and getting back to work," according to a source at an Oct. 20 commercial shoot at Tru Hollywood nightclub.

Armstrong, along with Atlanta's Kandi Burruss and Orange County's Gretchen Rossi, will be part of a team of Housewives to host Ciroc Vodka-sponsored New Year's Eve parties in Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, New York City and Miami this year. Commercials for the events, which will be open to lucky contest winners, will air on Bravo.

"Taylor was in good spirits, talking to a few people about the new things happening in her life," the source says.

Taylor Armstrong: How I Told My Daughter Russell Died

Taylor Armstrong's final memories of her estranged husband Russell Armstrong are painful ones.

But even though the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star claims her ex said, "I'm going to kill you one day," Taylor put on a brave face for the former couple's daughter Kennedy, 5, right after Russell, 47, committed suicide by hanging himself a month ago.

"As I was laying in the street screaming, I realized that my little girl was there and I had to pull it together to get her out of there," Taylor, 40, says in an interview airing Tuesday on ET. "I just told her that daddy got sick and he died."

Taylor did not want Kennedy, who had a close relationship with Russell, to feel like she would be without him forever.

After the suicide of Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, the only thing her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmates can do now is find a way to help her carry on, says costar Kyle Richards.

"I think that you really can't bring any sense to something like this," she told PEOPLE on Saturday at The Red CARpet Event at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. "You can't understand it, and I think that's the hardest part."

That then leaves only one option: supporting Armstrong and her daughter, Kennedy, says Richards, as the reality show continues with its second season.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Celebrate Premiere in N.Y.C.

Goodbye Beverly Hills – and hello New York City!

As they rev up for season 2 of their Bravo reality show, three of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars – Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump – decamped to New York with their husbands in tow for several celebrations and some good old fashioned promotion.

On Sunday night, the ladies celebrated Maloof's 50th birthday at new eatery Beauty & Essex on Manhattan's Lower East Side. First, the three first browsed the antique shop in the restaurant's entryway, then Maloof grabbed some free champagne and headed up to her dinner party.

The next night, just as their show premiered with a slightly-reedited episode, the ladies, their husbands and Vanderpump's dog, Jiggy, dined at Stantion Social, and shared favorites including the French onion soup dumplings, chicken and waffles and a chocolate tasting. The trio also busied themselves by Tweeting fans who were discussing the season premiere.

One of the most-anticipated season premieres of the fall, as well as the most unfortunate, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returned to Bravo Monday night, less than a month after the suicide of Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of Housewives castmate Taylor Armstrong.

His death provoked a good deal of debate among viewers, and possibly panic over at Bravo. And here we had the outcome.

The show started with the Housewives, minus Taylor, meeting at Adrienne Maloof's home and discussing the death, which they generally attributed to financial problems. It was like a salon of Victorian gentlewomen trying to allude to a scandal without having to rattle their teacups violently. (An actual photo of Russell might have helped.)

After much speculation, uncertainty and even criticism over how The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would return to TV following the recent suicide of Real Housewife Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell, Bravo has reached a decision about the upcoming premiere: the show will go on.
