Taylor Armstrong on Russell Armstrong Abuse: New Details

by at . Comments

Entertainment Tonight aired its exclusive interview with Taylor Armstrong last night, as the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills went into detail regarding the alleged violent nature of her late husband, Russell.

After explaining how Russell once beat her over a pizza order, Taylor continued:

"The first time [Russell] ever really harmed me physically, I was pregnant with Kennedy and he grabbed me by the throat and held me against a wall. Nothing had really happened to set him off, but I saw his ability to go from zero to 60 that quickly."

Taylor says Russell was aware of where his temper might lead him, but he just couldn't help it:

"He would grab me by one side of the hair on my head and bang the other side of my head against the car. He mentioned he was afraid he might kill me, and I think he meant in an almost accidental way, that he would get so angry at me at some time that he would hit me, and I would hit something, or he would grab me by the neck and something would go wrong."

Taylor would cover for her abusive husband, she adds, even once blaming her daughter for her hospital visit:

"I could have lost my eye, for sure. I told the doctor that Kennedy had kicked me. Because Russell told me to tell him that. And Russell went with me to the appointment, and sat in the chair with me the entire time. And when I came out of the flap repair, he immediately came into the recovery room with me, and stayed there until I left. And... I didn't want him to go to jail, so I guess that was all right.

What do you think of Taylor Armstrong taking these accusations so public? It's...

@Kris I hope you never get involved in an abusive relationship. You don't stay for money when you are being beat. I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years. They tear down your self esteem and make you believe that you don't deserve anything better. They make you believe that no one would ever want you. You need to open your eyes and see the truth just like I did once I got out of the relationship. I don't blame Taylor. I hope she gets healthy for the sake of her daughter. I wish them both well.

I hope Russell's family will go after this skank, along with the silly queen from Bravo
And that they take his little girl away from this unfit mother, and get her to start paying child support

If he did all that to her I think if she would have killed him it would have been justifiable homicide. No man should treat a woman like that. He may have committed suicide because he knew after the divorce she could tell the world what a ass he was. I believe he beat his other wife too. I feel sorry for his family but he was no man.
Real men dont beat women. Now he isnt the only one that can rest in peace.

When is she going to take some of the blame for driving him to suicide. She totally bankrupted him, made fun of him, made it clear he was not the man she wanted him to be. When women criticize and ridicule men, of course they will react. Her duck lips are enough to drive most men to hit her in the face. He had a mean streak, she put up with it because of his money. She needs to go back to that farm in Oklahoma, she has no class, is not sophisticated and apparently thought she snagged a rich man to give her a celebrity life style. I blame her, she pushed Russell to the edge, then kicked him over.

I have no words for this stupidity. This couple lived beyond their means, he was pressured to provide her with a life style he could not afford. Her lavish parties and senseless spending on cosmetic enhancements is ridiculous. She is a nobody trying to be a somebody. He probably hit her cus he resented her for pressuring him to provide a certain lifestyle. There are to many women out there like this and it needs to stop. They ruin it for the good hard working women of the world. Taylor your not a princess or a movie star, so buy a bus ticket and get out of dream world, its time to head back to reality. Those lips are gross, seriously! I would have beat your ass to. Get a job!!

First and foremost, she did the interview because he left her in a massive amount of debt. Why shouldn't she be allowed to finally tell her side of the story without having to fear for her life and safety? Good for you, Taylor! He's only dead because he CHOSE to take his own life. How is that the highest price paid for his deed, Reed? He copped out instead of taking responsibility and trying to fix his mistakes.

With her Donald Duck look, Taylor Armstrong can Not pretend to have any class. It seems that she would at least try to show some decency
by Not giving interviews about her late husband until the dust had settled on his death. Instead she is degrading herself more and more by continuing to place her charges of abuse for all to see after Russell was No longer around to challenge or speak on this hidden terrible channel of events. I can easily believe that Mrs. Armstrong Needs to step back, regroup, and put the security of her daughter Kennedy's Needs in place, and stop stomping over Kennedy's father memory by (suddenly) charging him with domestic violence after his death. Taylor Armstrong is absolutely shameless and is making herself look twice as ugly as she usually appear to be. PEACE!!
