“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong and fellow Bravo star Matt Nordgren — from “Most Eligible Dallas” — have been the subject of romance rumors and Taylor set the record straight with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson.
“There’s a rumor that you’ve already started dating, and that you’re new beau is Bravo star Matt Nordgren ... is that true?” Shaun asked Taylor during a recent visit to the set of Ciroc and Bravo’s New Year’s Eve commercial, promoting an upcoming Dec. 31 event involving various “Real Housewives” franchise stars in Houston, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
“That is not true,” Taylor said. “He is not (my boyfriend). He is very sweet, and just as handsome as can be. He’s such a great guy, and we’re friends, we have mutual friends in Dallas.
“We end up running in the same circle whenever we see one another, but he also has a wonderful foundation, called The Leadership Foundation, and I work with domestic violence. We’re trying to partner on some charitable efforts,” she continued. “He’s cute as a button, but no.”
Taylor and Matt were photographed having lunch together on Friday in Los Angeles. However, Taylor was quick to deflect the romance rumors with Matt — or with anyone else.
“Any guy in your life right now?” Shaun asked.
“No. It’s too soon,” Taylor, who is still dealing with the suicide of estranged husband Russell Armstrong, said. “I need some more time.”
With Season 2 of her hit Bravo series currently airing, how does Taylor feel about the possibility of returning to the small screen a third time?
“I love my cast and Bravo has been amazing to me. I’m absolutely open to it,” she told Shaun. “Again, it depends the most for me on whether it’s the right choice for (my daughter) Kennedy. I really have to see how she’s doing and make sure it’s the right choice for her.”
Adding, “At this point, I just have to do what I can to get my life back together and keep my little girl happy.”
