It seems Bravo may have a potential crossover in the works as The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong spent the weekend of September 23-24 with none other than Matt Nordgren, former University of Texas quarterback and star of Bravo’s new series Most Eligible Dallas!
According to Dallas blogger Oh So Cynthia, Nordgren (29) told people close to him that the recently widowed Armstrong (40) “is a dear friend… who just needed a change of scenery” and so he invited her out to Dallas where he would “show her around.” The “dear friends” description came as a surprise because according to Nordgren’s friends in Texas, he had never even mentioned her before.
So how did her Dallas weekend go? From Oh So Cynthia:
Apparently, Matt showed Taylor a verrrrrry good time because they were spotted out on the town dining at Nick and Sam’s restaurant, they showed up for the grand opening of Private|Social owned by fellow Bravo TV alumne, Tiffany Derry, attended the MTV:ReDefine Gala and Matt even took her to his 10-year reunion for Bishop Lynch High School. BAM!
Nordgren and Armstrong reportedly had a security guard with them at the events and were very adamant about not being photographed, so sadly we have yet to see any photographic proof of their time together. BUT, they certainly left a virtual trail on Twitter, where numerous folks reported seeing the remarkable pairing out and about:
@Anna-SophiavanZweden on September 28: and yes Taylor Armstrong(real housewives of Beverly Hills) attended with Matt Nordgren..?should I watch more US reality TV? #maybe not
@BigRichTexasPam on September 24: OMG Taylor from RHBH is here in Dallas for an event with Matt of dallas most…. Guess she is over the death fast !!
@TracyAchorHayes on September 24: Oddest couple at MTV ReDefine? Most Eligible Matt and Real Housewife Taylor. And she is flirting HARD #fdluxe
And then there was this comment left on D Magazine’s Most Eligible Dallas episode 6 recap:
Apparently Matt showed up to his high school reunion last weekend with Taylor Armstrong from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – the one where her husband just committed suicide. Anyway, they were apparently making out sloppy style all night and he even had a body guard. Sadly, no cameras were there so we will not be able to witness this train wreck second hand.
Oh So Cynthia contacted Matt Nordgren about the alleged hook up and he responded by stating, “It’s important for the Bravo family to support each other. Anytime someone’s going through that difficult of a situation I want to be supportive. She’s a friend, and that’s what friends do. She was in town handling business for her situation.” As Oh Cynthis points out, it would make sense that Taylor would need to visit the Dallas area to handle “business for her situation” because her deceased husband Russell Armstrong has family from nearby Denton, Texas.
As if all of this wasn’t bombshell enough, Oh So Cynthia has sources close to Matt Nordgren who claim he and Taylor “hooked up” back in July while the MED cast was in Los Angeles doing publicity for the show! Taylor and Russell had been separated for a month at the time.
Let’s remember that Matt Nordgren is a former University of Texas quarterback with a history of celebrity hook ups. As we mentioned in our profile post on him, Matt dated The Hills star Audrina Patridge in 2010 and even had a brief fling with The Bachelor‘s Vienna Girardi later the same year! It seems Nordegren is well on his way to becoming reality television’s replacement for Kevin Bacon! Anyone up for a game of Sex Degrees of Matt Nordgren?
I should also point out that this is the second Dallas hook up for the recently bachelorettized ladies of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as Camille Grammer’s new Greek lawyer beau, Dimitri George Charalambopoulos, is also from the Dallas area! Hmmmmm… I guess that means we might be seeing Brandi Glanville slapping on some cowboy boots here pretty soon!
