During an appearance on October 28th Us Weekly gets real with The Housewives podcast, the former star revealed her thoughts on joining the show. Armstrong was a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” during season 16 and is currently going through a divorce from her husband Ryne Holliday.
“I don’t regret doing the show, but I wish I had a better support system throughout the show,” Armstrong told the outlet. “I feel like the first year you don’t really know what you’re getting into and so if you get a second season you get your legs and you kind of know how it works, that’s what I need, to go to the next. I have a feeling the next one would be a lot better just because you experienced finishing like the rookie season. That would be nice and it would be great to have that opportunity.”
Armstrong also stated that she doesn’t feel the show caused their divorce.
“I don’t know exactly what’s happening with Ryne, week to week, month to month, day to day, I dunno,” said the former Real Housewives of Orange County star. “But I don’t feel like the show caused anything, it magnifies what’s already happening. It just puts you in a more intense situation. So no, I wouldn’t blame the show for that.”
Season 17 of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently in production.

“When you try so hard, you just keep trying and trying and not getting anywhere, at some point you’re like, ‘It would be so much easier to just have a new relationship,'” Armstrong said at the time. “It’s like you spin your wheel, spin your wheel, and I’m going nowhere on this hamster wheel. So it’s very frustrating for me, mostly because… I’m a very goal-oriented person.”
