Taylor Armstrong has denied she is dating Matt Nordgren.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star - whose estranged husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide in August - thinks the 'Most Eligible Dallas' hunk is "as handsome as can be", but the pair are not a couple.

When asked about a rumour they are dating, Taylor told 'Access Hollywood': "That is not true. He is not [my boyfriend]. He is very sweet, and just as handsome as can be. He's such a great guy, and we're friends, we have mutual friends in Dallas.

"We end up running in the same circle whenever we see one another, but he also has a wonderful foundation, called The Leadership Foundation, and I work with domestic violence. We're trying to partner on some charitable efforts. He's cute as a button, but no."

Taylor and Matt were spotted having lunch together in Los Angeles on Friday (21.10.11), but the reality TV beauty said it is "too soon" after Russell's death to get into a relationship, adding: "I need some more time."
