Season three will be in full effect with Taylor Armstrong on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but according to an insider, she may be gradually phased out of the hit reality show.
The source told RadarOnline, "Producers reluctantly decided to sign Taylor for the next season and I think a lot of their decision was based purely on the fact that they felt bad just dumping her after all she went through last year."
The insider added, "But they are definitely looking to phase her out of the show gradually. The feeling is that Taylor won't really be bringing much to the table and that she's not needed anymore. Producers don't feel she's particularly a sympathetic character and that she lost a lot of people's respect by bringing out a book about the physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her late husband Russell Armstrong following his death, and that she basically cashed in on his suicide."
Taylor's book, Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within was published in February. The insider also pointed out that without marriage drama on the show, Taylor's going to "come across as dull."
