Taylor Armstrong’s friends are so concerned about her excessive drinking that they are planning an intervention if she doesn’t stop and get help soon, Star magazine is exclusively reporting.

Since her husband Russell’s suicide the reality star has turned to the bottle and her drinking is spiraling out of control.

“A pal told Taylor that she drinks too much,” an insider reveals. “She told Taylor to go to rehab for the sake of her daughter. Taylor agreed and said she is open to going to some kind of rehab center.”

Taylor’s drinking problem dates way back to before Russell’s death. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Taylor got so drunk during the filming of an out of town episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills earlier in the year that she was nearly hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.

But, the source tells Star that her drinking has escalated even further since the traumatic discovery of Russell’s body on August 15.

“The alcohol has been a problem for a long time, but since Russell’s suicide it’s gotten worse,” the insider says. “When Russell was alive, they drank a lot together.”

If Taylor doesn’t make a change fast, those close to her plan to take action. “Taylor doesn’t know that friends and family will have a real intervention with her if she doesn’t follow through with some kind of treatment,” the source says, adding that the Bravo star is considering an in-patient facility in Orange County, Calif.

“She is trying to keep this quiet,” the source reveals. “She doesn’t want anyone to know about this.”

Calls to Taylor for comment were not returned at time of posting.
