You’ve seen the memes of the screaming cat lady. You laughed at a couple and possibly rolled your eyes at a few. What you may not know is the woman screaming at the cat….is from Kansas.
The woman is Taylor Armstrong, best known for her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But before she was made a celebrity on TV and with memes, she was a Kansan.
The photo of her is a screen cap of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with fellow cast member Kyle Richards in the background.
The cat with an attitude in the adjoining photo is Smudge the Cat, who has over a million followers on his Instagram page.
According to Armstrong’s biography, she was born in Independence, Kansas.
Armstrong has embraced the new stardom after she stopped being in the limelight when she left the show. She often reposts the memes on her Twitter account.
She has even gone as far as starting the hashtag #memequeen.
