Taylor Armstrong Details Alleged Abuse in New Interview

by at . Comments

Taylor Armstrong stands accused of forging photos that allegedly depict her battered face following a beating by Russell Armstrong.

But the reality star stands by her accusations in an explosive interview that airs this evening on Entertainment Tonight. In it, she goes into detail regarding specific instances of abuse, saying of her late, troubled husband:

"He grabbed me by the neck and shoved me up against the wall, and he said, 'If you ever make my children a pizza without a vegetable again, I'll kill you.'"

Aware of how some may view the publicizing of abuse from a man who isn't around to defend himself - and with whom she shares a five-year old daughter - Taylor says:

"He doesn't need my protection anymore, but there are a lot of women in this world who probably do," she said, subsequently taking us inside her petrified mindset:

"You live your life constantly on egg shells waiting for the other shoe to drop. You don't know if you're gonna talk to your girlfriend too long at dinner, and that's going to cause someone to fly into a rage... I don't think he saw himself as an abuser until the last time that he hurt me, when I finally ended our relationship."

And a few weeks later, of course, Russell killed himself. How did Taylor break the news to her child?

"I just told her that daddy got sick and he died, and that we could pick a star in the sky to be daddy, and she could talk to him every night."

I believe her. she went through hell and he couldn't stand the thought of not having her so he killed himself. If you watch the first season you will notice how controlling he was and you could see the terror in her eyes. Stop bashing her. If you have never lived through abuse or grew up watching it then you would not know what to look for. IF SHE MAKES MONEY OFF IT THEN LET HER SHE DESERVES IT AND NEEDS TO SUPPORT HER DAUGHTER.

I don't believe he physically abused her according to the pictures shown of her. No doubt they had lots of arguments because he was financially hurting. I would say those pictures are of cosmetic surgery. He should have kicked her butt when she blew 50k on their daughter's birthday. She is milking this for all she can get because Russell is not there to defend himself. Without all this publicity and the money she will receive, she would have to deflate her fish lips, give up her style of living and apply for a job at WalMarts.....LOL

She should be ashamed of herself! How fucking disrespectful to do that to her children. I hope she's making alot of money off these photos and interviews because she'll have nothing else in a few years. If her kids will stay away from her if they know what's good for them! A horrible and miserable human being.

Did he keep her locked in a cage? I mean, I feel bad that she was abused but she wasn't being held captive by the man. It's hard to feel completely sorry for her when she should have left him the first time.

again, im not a big Taylor fan, but i do beleive her story. & i beleive that Bravo has even more proof. If Russell's lawyer decides 2 go further n suing Taylor(4 wutever reasons), then he will definitely not get 2 far. Ppl say she's sellin the pics 4 $$, but she has 2 move on & make a living 4 herself& her child!! Ppl make $$ every day( the best or fastest way they can). Thats none of my biz, but i kno im gonna make sure my kids eat, & she's talk'n a "reality/everyday subject". This sh*t happens all the time & i personally kno women that r afraid 2 leave their partner,let alone, talk about it.
