"Taylor was so upset about the state of her then marriage that she got very, very intoxicated,” the insider told RadarOnline.com. “This wasn't normal behavior at all for her. She was so drunk that she probably should have gone to the hospital. She is so tiny, and hadn't eaten a lot that day, which only made the situation worse.

“Taylor felt that she didn't need medical attention though and refused to go to the hospital.”

The season premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills aired on Monday night, shattering last season's viewing figures and nearly doubling the numbers.

The tragic suicide of Taylor's estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, was addressed by the cast, without Taylor, during a special segment at the start of the show’s season 2 premiere.

As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed Taylor recently inked a book deal, which will include personal photos of injuries sustained during her alleged abuse from Russell.

“Taylor’s acting like she’s not trying to bank off Russell’s suicide, but by including photos of her injuries after he allegedly beat her, that’s exactly what she’ll be doing,” an insider told RadarOnline.com.

“It’s no secret that Taylor’s been strapped for cash since Russell died, and since she hasn’t received the advance on her book yet, a few of the Housewives have been helping her out financially.”
