She's already given numerous interviews about the suicide of her estranged husband. She's released hospital photos aiming to prove he beat her.

So is anyone really surprised by the following fact? Taylor Armstrong will release a memoir in February.

The 272-page book will be titled "Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within," and, of course, Armstrong claimed she is writing it to raise awareness of domestic violence.

“It will be a memoir and the abuse she endured while married to Russell, as well as another abusive relationship she was in the past will all be detailed," a friend tells Radar Online.

And all profits will go toward domestic violence causes, right? To help with such an important, personal issue? Not according to any sources, no.

As seen above, Taylor and Russel's marital problems have disgustingly taken center stage on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills this season. He was found dead in his Los Angeles home on August 15.

What would you expect to see at a fashion show thrown by a woman who is launching her new line of shoes? Oh ... perhaps ... SHOES!? Well, apparently that's a little too straightforward for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

THG breaks down all the drama and confusion in its +/- recap below!

Adrienne Maloof Hair

For all of Lisa's protests about not wanting to go overboard on Pandora's wedding she does absolutely nothing to stop her wedding planner from doing just that.

Minus 8 because I wish she'd stop whining about it and accept the fact that nothing is too outlandish for her baby girl, including $15,000 wedding invitations. 

Smoking designer cocktails are next on the list. When they say that the overpriced beverage is your personal, unique signature drink for your event, I always wonder how many people they've sold that same line to for the same exact drink.

Plus 10 for the sucker born every minute and those waiting to make a buck off of them.

Pandora requests that her mother's friends don't have a battle in the middle of her wedding. Good luck with that. Minus 5 for naivete when her fiance thinks the ladies wouldn't start a fight at their wedding.  Has he watched this show before?

Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of Taylor Armstrong who committed suicide in August, will appear on next week's new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In the following preview, you can watch the late star talking to Kyle Richards and threatening a lawsuit against Lisa Vanderpump over a tabloid story he believes she helped plant regarding his relationship with Taylor:

On the season premiere, Bravo edited out a scene in which Taylor shopped for lingerie in the hope that it would spice up her crumbling marriage to Russell. To some, that was enough. To others, the network should have canceled all of season two in the wake of Russell's death.

Where do you stand on his upcoming role? Should Bravo cut every appearance?

Taylor Armstrong wants to make it as clear as possible: her late husband beat her often and may have murdered her.

Since the August suicide of Russell Armstrong, this horrific Real Housewife has gone out of her way to paint a negative picture of her daughter's father, giving multiple interviews that detailed Russell's abuse.

A Terrible Person

Taylor Armstrong: Open mouth. Insert foot. Repeat.

The latest despicable example? A chat with KTLA-TV in which Taylor hypothesizes that Russell may have killed if her not for the higher power above. No, not God. Bravo television.

"I was in an abusive relationship for six years," Taylor said. "If the cameras were not in my life, I might not be sitting here today. A lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide, versus just suicide. I have my daughter with me today, and by the grace of God and, perhaps, reality TV, I'm sitting here and so is she."

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 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.'"

Taylor Armstrong reportedly pocketed $125,000 for selling photos of herself in the hospital, as the result of an alleged beating at the fists of Russell Armstrong, to Entertainment Tonight.

But as shady as that move may be, an attorney for Taylor's late husband has made an even more startling accusation: Ronald Richards says the pictures are a hoax.

Richards says Taylor's black eye may be real, but it was NOT caused by his client. Instead, the lawyer cites plastic surgery as a possible basis for the marks.

"If Mr. Armstrong was the cause of those injuries he would have been arrested and prosecuted," Richards tells TMZ, highlighting the fact that Taylor never filed a police report.

The late Russell Armstrong had a history of domestic violence dating back long before his assault on estranged wife Taylor became public knowledge.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars' five-year-old daughter Kennedy never saw Russell attack Taylor Armstrong, however, a new report says.

Entertainment Tonight, who aired this Taylor Armstrong abuse photo and spoke with the reality star, made the revelation on its program Wednesday.

ET reported that six weeks before he hanged himself (or was murdered, according to some people), Russell sought to change his will, although he never did so.

The program also delved into Russell’s past violence towards women.

Armstrong had two separate restraining orders filed against by him, one by his ex-wife, and one by an ex-girlfriend, as well as a battery conviction in 1997.

Russell married Barbara Armstrong in 1997 and separated shortly after their son Aiden was born. She alleges he hit her while she was six months pregnant.

A coroner has ruled out foul play, but John Ann Hotchkiss - the mother of Russell Armstrong - has confirmed in a new interview: "We want a murder investigation. We will do whatever is necessary to proceed."

Hotchkiss simply can't fathom that Russell would take his own life - she says he was "warm and personable" and "loved his children to a fault" - and believes his financial struggles left him open to a "set up."

"No one is accusing Bravo," Hotchkiss clarifies to Us Weekly. "We think someone conspired to have him murdered and it is open as to who did it."

With an autopsy already having confirmed that Russell Armstrong died by hanging, Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter added to that report today by providing the results of toxicology tests run on the late reality star.

And he confirms that no drugs or alcohol were in Russell's system at the time of his death.

The body of Taylor Armstrong's husband, from whom she had filed for divorce in July, was discovered hanging from an apartment ceiling on August 15.

Despite no evidence to back up their claim, family members now apparently believe Russell was murdered (in relation to his ongoing financial struggles) and are considering the hiring of a private investigator.
