Just this month, Taylor filed for divorce from her husband of 6 years, Russell Armstrong. Whenever I watched The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, he rubbed me the wrong way. His beady little eyes followed me around and penetrated through my televisions screen. His pasty skin, which makes no sense since he lives in California, creeped me out. But your damn phone away and go lay on the beach or something!
Well, Taylor is as terrified of Russell as I was while watching the Bravo reality show, and with good reason. She recently told People that her ex-husband beat her. She shares her story, stating that he often cursed at her, pushed her and pulled her hair during fights. And this isn’t alleged information. Russell actually admits to shoving Taylor. However, he is blaming it all on Bravo.
“Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit.”
Leave it to an abuser to not take responsibility for his actions.
Good luck to Taylor and good riddance. Because no woman, no matter what the circumstances, should be abused.
