Taylor Armstrong has found love again! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 42, is engaged to boyfriend John Bluher following a picture-perfect proposal at The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, Mexico on Thursday, Aug. 22, her rep tells Us Weekly. To seal the deal, attorney Bluher pulled out all the stops for a romantic, over-the-top evening.
Bluher popped the question to the Bravo star — she wore a blue silk dress — at sunset on the beach beneath a white tent filled with white roses and lilies. (The couple started the night with a bottle of Veuve Grand Dame champagne.) After Armstrong said yes, accepting a gold and diamond engagement ring designed by Ari Soffer, the couple headed back into the St. Regis for a lavish dinner — and plenty of wine — at the resort's restaurant, Carolina.
"The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is where we fell in love, it was the perfect choice for this wonderful occasion," Bluher tells Us. "Taylor was beautiful and never stopped smiling! it was an amazing evening, a ten all round!"
A wedding date has not yet been set for the pair. It will be the second marriage for Armstrong. As RHOBH watchers know, Taylor's estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide back in August 2011. Taylor and Russell shared daughter Kennedy, now 6.
Taylor developed a drinking problem in the wake of Russell's shocking death, she admitted in her blog early this year. "Thankfully, I had an amazing support system and they helped me realize that it was time for me to feel my emotions and let the healing begin."
Back in June, she called Bluher "a gentle, loving soul . . I am blessed."
