Don't let her fancy night out on the town with a fellow reality star fool you—Taylor Armstrong is still a grieving widow and in mourning over the suicide of her ex-husband Russell Armstrong.

It appeared she'd rebounded with Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren after he welcomed her to Dallas by taking her as his date to the Cattle Baron's Ball. But now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is setting the record straight—on Twitter, of course. 

So what's she saying?

"I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter," she tweeted today.

Earlier this month, the Most Eligible Dallastwitter retweeted a similar statement, saying the duo really are just friends. "NEWS:  and  are 'just friends'," linking to a Gossip Cop article which clearly states, "A rep for Nordgren tells Gossip Cop that he and Armstrong are 'just friends,' and that he merely wanted to 'welcome her to the city' as she's part of the Bravo family."

Taylor recently revealed that it could have been Bravo that actually saved her, and that Russell's chilling suicide by hanging could have ended in murder-suicide if the cameras had not been filming her life.

"I was in an abusive relationship for six years and that was going on...The only thing I would say," she said in an inteview with KTLA-TV., "If the cameras were not in my life, I might not be sitting here today."

"A lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide, versus just suicide," she continued. "I have my daughter with me today, and by the grace of God and, perhaps, reality TV, I'm sitting here and so is she."

It was only after Russell's death that Taylor started speaking publicly about the physical abuse she suffered during her six-year marriage. 

"I believe that, subconsciously, I may have signed up for the show to try and allow my problems to be in the public eye to some extent because, again, it was my saving grace," the mother of five-year-old Kennedy said.
