Taylor Armstrong is the Woman Yelling at a Cat [Behind the Meme]

It’s a good thing Taylor Armstrong has a sense of humor because she will forever be known as the woman yelling at a cat. Get the story.

We’ve all seen it at this point. It’s one of the most shared memes of all time, and chances are, you’ve laughed at it even if you haven’t used it yourself. I definitely have. But the truth is, the ‘woman yelling at a cat’ meme has a much darker backstory than you might expect.

Because it came from the Housewives franchise, you’d be right in thinking this was a big, dramatic fight between two very wealthy women who live a lifestyle most of us could only dream of. However, this wasn’t some petty fight, as you may have suspected. Unfortunately, we forget that the 1% has their problems too, and the ‘woman yelling at a cat,’ also known as Taylor Armstrong (former cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), is no exception. Not only was the wealthy wife dealing with past emotional trauma, but she also had dark secrets. One of these secrets sparked the meme we all know today.

During a recorded event, Camille Gammer (now Meyer) revealed that Armstrong was in an emotionally and physically abusive marriage. Having no intention of publicizing her situation, she immediately feared how her husband would respond when he saw the footage. And no, she was never actually the ‘woman yelling at a cat!’ Instead, she was yelling at a fellow cast member.
