Taylor Armstrong: Why I'm Sharing My Story Now

by at . Comments

Taylor Armstrong will release a memoir in February that details the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of estranged late husband Russell Armstrong.

Given the timing of the book, along with the numerous interviews this Real Housewife has given on the topic since Russell killed himself in August, it's impossible not to wonder why Armstrong is speaking out now. It's a matter of safety, Taylor claims.

T. Armstrong

"Until Russell's suicide, I didn't feel safe to tell anyone for fear of my own safety and the safety of my daughter," Armstrong tells ABC News. "With Russell's passing, I now feel safe to bring my story into the light, to help all battered and abused women, and men, and aid them in their struggle.

"From the bottom of my heart, I believe if my book can help others find the courage to deal with the pain and fear of their abusive relationships, I will have made a real difference in their lives."

What do you think of Armstrong releasing such a memoir?

ELB, you're absolutely right. Also, I can't believe she's still telling her story. Milk it for all it's worth, I guess. Anywho, I remember her lies from season 1. She was caught in her lies, but just swept them under the rug, thinking that the public wasn't keeping track...wrong!

Unfortunately there are greater tragedies than an abusive husband.
You can divorce or leave a spouse,you cannot get back health or awaken your dead child. I'm disgusted with Taylor for her total disregard of others and and hurting them because she is sooooo
annoyed with somebody.As for Kyle, I used to like her,but recently
she's been helping Taylor to continue her downfall and "drama".

She might want to consult an attorney regarding "slander" before she publishes her book. Given that there is not one shred of evidence that she was in an abusive relationship - it is unfortunate that she is gaining notariety for her "story". PLEASE rewatch the first season and reunion as her lack of honesty is evident and commented on by her castmates....

So sick of this duckbill lipped hag. I stopped watching the RH fiasco long ago, but this idiot is like a turd stuck sideways in my ass. It's sad she is profittinc off this man's death; a survivor she may be, but she's also a selfish manipulative trash-pile that won't go away. Taylor, he's dead... go to therapy and get on with life. Rehashing this story only makes getting past it futile.

TMAc ~ I agree with what you are saying. She has issues, and white woman use men for money, nothing else. I am white, but prefer latinas to any white ho out there. Taylor is disgusting in my opinion.
