Taylor Armstrong will star in season 17 of The Real Housewives of Orange County, officially returning to the Real Housewives franchise after six years.
Armstrong appeared as a full-time star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the first three seasons before appearing as a guest in Season 6. Armstrong had divorced Russell Armstrong before he died by suicide while filming RHOBH. This was enough for Armstrong to take a step back and realize she needed to take her time and heal without the cameras rolling.
“After Season 3 and everything I’d been through in my life, I decided I needed to take some time away from LA and all the paparazzi. For a while it was a little bit scary because I had nowhere to go and I had my little girl and I wanted to take her with me for a while and she wouldn’t see her exposed to people constantly screaming and asking me what happened,” Armstrong said said Bravo.
A lot has changed since then and Armstrong is returning to the show, albeit to a different franchise. Now that she lives at the OC, Armstrong will be filming alongside the RHOC ladies.

Armstrong explained her decision to return to Bravo
During an “Ask Me Anything” posted to her Instagram Stories, Armstrong was asked what made her want to return to the franchise.
“I returned to HW because I wanted viewers to see that there is life after tragedy,” Armstrong wrote in response.
“When I left #RHOBH, my life was in such a horrible place and I want others who are going through difficult times to know that they have the strength not only to weather adversity, but to use their strength to help others support. My story felt unfinished,” she continued.
“When I was on #RHUGT I had so much fun just being myself instead of worrying about my past stresses in my personal life. And now I’m excited to share my new chapter on #RHOC,” she added.
Armstrong joined the cast as “girlfriend of” for season 17, though fans are hoping she’ll end up with an orange back on her hands.
And what fans can expect for the new season, Armstrong described the season in three words: “Twisted. Extraordinary. Come back.”
