The mean girls came out to play on the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. THG examines all the cattiness in our weekly +/- recap!

We start off with Adrienne and Paul still waiting on Kim. Minus 5. The plane is on the runway and everyone is waiting but still no Kim. When she finally arrives she looks exactly how Paul suspected... intoxicated. Of course no one can say for sure but if this is Kim's behavior sober, that's just pretty darn scary.

Kim took an awfully long time to take her sunglasses off. Was it simply that she wasn't happy with her makeup? As her story goes, her power went out and she had to go to a neighbor's house to apply it before she could leave for the airport.

When they finally arrives at the game Kim just won't shut up. Plus 8 for the look on Adrienne's face as Taylor blathers on and for Paul who just tells her to be quiet and watch the game. Somehow Kim doesn't strike me as a big sports fan.

Then we cut to Taylor who has run to Kyle to complain about an article in the paper about her and Russell's disintegrating marriage. Kyle asks where they could have gotten such information. Umm.  Ladies, look up. Do you see those cameras following you around. Your personal lives are now public fodder and in case you've forgotten, you signed up for this. Minus 15 for being oblivious to the obvious.

The Taylor Armstrong pity/exploitation/public service announcement tour continues today on Dr. Phil.

Following an explosive, controversial interview on Entertainment Tonight Tuesday - during which the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills detailed the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of her dead husband - Armstrong will appear across from a man who knows all about profiting off the pain of others.

Watch a preview of the interview below and check your local listings to find out when you should stay as far away as possible from your TV it airs:

During the conversation, Taylor acknowledges that pressure from having his life recorded may have contributed to Russell's suicide.

"I can't say what he was thinking at the time [of his death], but what I can say is that I believe that if it weren't for the cameras, there's a chance I wouldn't be sitting here with you today," Armstrong.

As a mother of a five-year old, her response, of course, has been to quit the show and withdraw from the public spotlight as much as possible. Oh, no. Wait. It's been the exact opposite.

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.

This week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finished up their trip to Beaver Creek and we take a look at who reached new high or low points in our +/- recap!

Taylor was on a downward spiral. This girl was just a mess. Her moods have shifted from miserable to distraught to kind of scary. But the ladies earned a Plus 7 for trying to help, even though they weren't all that successful at it.

Taylor Armstrong Cries

Kim took on the mothering role when she woke up to find a half naked, crying Taylor in her bed. I doubt she was expecting that. Having been divorced, Kim tries her best to console Taylor on her troubled marriage. Plus 8 for making the effort to point out that everyone has problems and Taylor's not as alone as she feels.

Camille, however seemed content to hide in her room and let the drama play out without her. Honestly, I couldn't say I blamed her. I might hide too but she was the host. Minus 5 because she really should have checked on her guest.

Taylor's breakdown continued as she ended up crying in a closet and then became completely paranoid over a missing makeup bag. Heaven forbid dinner with the ladies not be in full makeup.

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.

Photos of Taylor Armstrong - taken of the reality star soon after an alleged beating from husband Russell, which Entertainment Tonight teased last month as "graphic and shocking" - have been released.

And they are, indeed, graphic and shocking.

The news program ran a commercial last night for a special that will air this evening, and it featured the following shot of a black-eyed Taylor in the hospital:

It's unclear when this picture was taken, but it was likely the result of a physical confrontation between Taylor and Russell immediately prior to the start of shooting on season two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Expect more to hit the Web after Entertainment Tonight runs it report this week. But should these pics be made public? You tell us:

This week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills headed out on a lovely ski vacation in the Rocky Mountain State. What could possibly go wrong in that scenario?

Let's find out in THG's +/- recap!

Before they leave we get a quick tour of Kyle's dream home. She says she drove past it for years and would stop just to send out her good energy, hoping that this house would someday be hers. Well, here's Plus 5 for good energy. It looks like a lovely home. 

The Real Housewives of Colorado

The ladies head out for a Colorado ski adventure at Camille's place. How dangerous could it be? They could use a whole other limo for all of their luggage. Ladies, it's a weekend. You're not moving there. Minus 3.

This trip is a last hurrah for Camille who has to sell the ski chalet per her divorce agreement. It is a shame. The place is gorgeous but according to Lisa, Camille is in dire straits. She'll be down to only a couple of houses before long. Dear me. Minus 10. Heaven forbid someone be down to their last two mansions. How will she survive?

Taylor Armstrong has agreed to a book deal in which she'll write about her relationship with late, estranged husband Russell.

An insider tells Radar Online that Taylor is struggling financially and will even include pictures of her alleged abuse at the hands of Russell in order to sell as many copies as possible.

“Taylor’s acting like she’s not trying to bank off Russell’s suicide, but by including photos of her injuries after he allegedly beat her, that’s exactly what she’ll be doing,” a source said, adding that castmates have been lending the reality star money.
