Taylor Armstrong (born Shana Lynette Hughes; June 10, 1971) is an American television personality who appeared in the first three seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, starting in 2010. In 2019, a screen-capture image from Armstrong's time on the program became an Internet meme after it was placed alongside a photograph of a cat. That meme, often called "woman yelling at [a] cat," gained widespread viral popularity.[1][2]


Armstrong was born Shana Lynette Hughes in Independence, Kansas, on June 10, 1971.[3][4] Her family later left Kansas for Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Armstrong attended Union High School, where she was a cheerleader. She graduated from high school in 1989.[5] She later changed her name to Taylor Ford and moved to Beverly Hills, California, after starting her own e-commerce business. She met her future husband, venture capitalist Russell Armstrong, at a local restaurant in Beverly Hills while waiting to be seated.[6] The two married less than a year later and their only child, a daughter named Kennedy Caroline Russell, was born in 2006.

Armstrong first appeared in the public spotlight in 2010, as part of the cast of the Bravo reality television series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.[7] During the series' run, Armstrong's appearance on the show was plagued by rumors of financial issues and domestic violence, and she later confirmed that she had been physically abused by Russell Armstrong and had to undergo reconstructive surgery for an orbital fracture after being hit by him.[7][8][9] A discussion of the alleged abuse resulted in an on-camera altercation with other cast members that would, years later, become part of a popular internet meme, commonly called "woman yelling at [a] cat" or simply "the cat meme."[1][10][2]

In July 2011, after the filming of the second season of Real Housewives, she filed for divorce, citing verbal and physical abuse. The next month, her estranged husband committed suicide; she found his body on August 15, 2011, dead from an apparent hanging, at a home he rented on Mulholland Drive following their separation.[11][7][12]

Armstrong is currently married to John Bluher, an attorney, whom she wed on April 4, 2014 in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles.[13]

Taylor Armstrong seen making out with Matt Nordgren at Cattle Barons Ball

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong and Matt Nordgren from Most Eligible Dallas

The world of reality TV gossip is once again focused on the city of Dallas as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong was spotted at The Cattle Barons Ball with Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren.

Dallas super blogger Oh So Cynthia broke the story as she began getting reports via Twitter that Matt and Taylor were at the event together. She shared this photo of the two looking quite romantic:

Taylor Armstrond and Matt Nordgren together at Cattle Baron's Ball in Dallas

Oh So Cynthia corrected me and let me know the above photo was from Mei-Chun Jau, Special Contributor for the Dallas Morning News. Click the link for the original story.

Dallas television personality Ron Corning (Daybreak, Midday) was at the Ball and tweeted this firsthand account that seems to suggest Nordgren and Armstrong are a bit more than just friends:

Ron Corning tweets that Taylor Armstrong and Matt Nordgren were making out at Cattle Baron's Ball

Matt Nordgren appeared to be really enjoying himself at the Ball, something he later confirmed on Twitter:

Matt Nordgren tweets about being on Cloud 9 at Cattle Barons Ball with Taylor Armstrong

The Cloud 9 remark drew a response from Matts potential love interest on Most Eligible Dallas, Courtney Kerr, a comment Oh So Cynthia assures us is dripping with sarcasm:

Courtney Kerr sarcastically retweets Matt Nordgren's Cloud Nine comment from Cattle Baron's Ball

It should be noted that the Most Eligible Dallas season finale is Monday night and the main storyline is whether or not Matt Nordgren and Courtney Kerr wind up together. Oh So Cynthia tells us she has an inside source who says Bravo leaves it up in the air, but judging by the actions of Nordgren over the last couple months, I think we can assume the two wont be walking down the aisle any time soon. That theory is supported by the fact that Courtney Kerr was also at the Cattle Barons Ball, and according to Ron Corning, she was nearby and appalled by Matt and Taylor:

Ron Corning tweets Courtney Kerr is nearby an appalled by Matt Nordgren and Taylor Armstrong

Oh So Cynthia received a call from Matt Nordgren about his evening out with Taylor and he continues to insist the two are just friends.

Hey Cynthia. I am just calling to tell you that I am driving home from Cattle Barrons. Alone! Matt insists that he and Taylor are just friends and he is helping her through a rough time. Apparently, she needs to talk about her problems and (Matts) a good listener.

This marks the second time Taylor, who recently lost her estranged husband Russell Armstrong to suicide, has been spotted out on the town in the Big D with Nordgren, the last known occurrence being the weekend of September 23-24 during which Matt and Taylor were seen together at numerous events in Dallas. (CLICK HERE to read more about that weekend out, which includes reports of how the two first met.)

Matt Nordgren and Courtney Kerr will both be on Watch What Happens: Live! with Andy Cohen Monday night (just after the Most Eligible Dallas season finale) during which they are expected to address their relationship, but my guess is that Andys inbox will be blown up with Taylor Armstrong questions!

A couple people recognized Taylor Armstrong and asked to take pictures with her, which were of course found their way online. My favorite is from TakenAwayBlog.coms Brittney Aleman, who quoted Taylors infamous Oklahoma line from season one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in her tweet:

And heres Taylor with Robin Means Skinner from Facebook:

Yee haw yall!!! Watch What Happens: Live! should be a blast!

UPDATE Lawdy lawd! The fit has done hit the shan on this story! First off, Ron Corning has since told Oh So Cynthia that he didnt personally see Matt Nordgren and Taylor Armstrong kissing, but he got it from reliable sources. Hmmmm that sounds about as unreliable as it gets.

Secondly, Oh So Cynthia caught an earful from Matt Nordgrens publicist, who provided her with a list of clarifications about the Cattle Barons Ball and Matts relationship with Taylor. Among the bullet points, which can be read in full HERE, Nordgrens publicist says Taylor and Matt arrived at the event separately, Taylor was invited by the Ball months ago, and Matt denies having kissed Taylor. Also, they are giving an exclusive to OK! magazine tomorrow and are upset at the timing of the story as if Oh So Cynthia or anyone else could have done anything about when Matt and Taylor were seen together at the Cattle Barons Ball!

Matt Nordgren: Dating Taylor Armstrong?!?

There's just something so appealing about a woman who continually trashes the late father of her five-year old child. Isn't that right, Matt Nordgren?

Insiders tell Radar Online that this star of the alleged Bravo series Most Eligible Dallas accompanied Armstrong to a ball in Dallas last week and was "very affectionate" with her

"Matt is a Southern gentleman, and has impeccable manners," a source says. "Taylor isn't used to being treated so well by a man. It's truly amazing that she has been able to find someone that she can trust, and that she isn't afraid of."

Taylor and Matt are reportedly taking their relationship slowly, although this mole claims Armstrong is telling pals "she is in love."

We're just impressed she has time to date in between all the interviews she's giving that detail just how terrible of a man Russell Armstrong was before he committed suicide in August. Seriously, she's a keeper, Matt.

Taylor Armstrong Tweets Down Matt Nordgren Romance Rumors

Taylor Armstrong will gladly go into detail about her late husband allegedly beating her, but the reality star only has one sentence to say about rumors that she's getting it on with Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren.

"I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter," Armstrong Tweeted yesterday.

We are very sorry, Taylor. When reporting you might be with Nordgren, we should have considered your five-year old child. By the way: when is your next primetime interview scheduled where you slam the heck out of your five-year old child's father?

Both Nordgren and Armstrong admit they attended a ball together in Dallas, but merely as friends.

Taylor, meanwhile, recently said she may have "subconsciously" signed up for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because she was getting beaten and this allowed her "problems to be in the public eye to some extent... it was my saving grace."

Dina Lohan, take note: THIS is how you exploit a family tragedy for personal gain.
