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.

"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?

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."

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.
