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...


Its easy for you to say u choice to stay ,Most ppl thatr abused r to afraid to leave ,,,I know i was in one for years an everytime i tried to leave he healt a gun on me,,who gives a fk about his reputation,,The man that abused me for years is now dead an may he rot in hell,It really pisses me off oh u stayed an defend the abuser ,,no its wrong for ppl to turn a blind eye when they no its going on,,ya the man is dead,,my frist on that is he cant hurt no one else,,so shut the fk up an let the women speak,,,,,,,,


He's dead now, he paid the highest price for his deeds, until he can tell his side of the story, it's time for her to shut her mouth and take care of her child.


The only reason she is talking now is because she is getting paid for it!!! It's all about the money. Anyone that will pay she will talk!


I watch all of the Housewife shows and as I really feel for Taylor I don't understand why she waits until he is deceased to talk about this publically. I am so thankful that I have not been in her shoes and I know there are alot of woman out there in her shoes and she says this is the reason why she is NOW speaking. Any woman or man has the option to get out of a situation like that and she chose to stay in the relationship for years. Don't use the excuse of the daughter, please all 3 would have been better off getting out of the relationship the first time. Who knows he could still be alive today but to bash him after death is wrong. Its wrong for the whole family you are not only hurting his reputation but are harming the whole family. Go back to the show and LET HIM REST IN PEACE. Quit all of this because this is your word and he can't defend himself. Again, I don't agree with abuse but again you wait to speak badly of him when he is not her to defend himself


She married him for the money then spent it all. Wish she would just shut up and go to therapy and leave the rest of us alone!
