Taylor Armstrong Will Reveal Domestic Abuse Details

Taylor Armstrong'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Taylor Armstrong is set to reveal details about the domestic abuse she suffered while married to her recently deceased husband.

Taylor has filmed her first TV interview since her estranged husband's suicide with Nancy O'Dell for 'Entertainment Tonight,' airing Sept. 20.

On the Sept. 13 show, 'Entertainment Tonight' showed images of a badly bruised Taylor, reportedly taken in July.

Taylor filed for divorce from Russell, her estranged husband, on July 15. In August, Russell hanged himself.

A source told 'Entertainment Tonight' that Taylor underwent Lasik eye surgery on July 5, then just days later Russell hit her so hard that her corneal flap was dislocated. Taylor reportedly didn't make a public appearance until she did press for 'Real Housewives' in August.

"I felt like I was dying inside," Taylor told People after filing for divorce. "Now, there's some sense of peace."

"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," Russell told People in July. "This show has literally pushed us to the limit."

Following the tragic events, Bravo decided to re-edit Season 2 of the hit reality show.

"Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time," Frances Berwick, president of Bravo Media, said in a statement.

On a recent episode of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' Taylor opened up to Kyle Richards about her troubled marriage. Watch the scene below.

This show is garbage and Taylor is trailer trash looking for more publicity. We know what he did . He is dead now and you got what you wanted. How about talking to a therapist instead of E. Fame *****. Guys should avoid this ho like the plague. Toxic women. SHe new they were in debt but spend 40 grand on a birthday party. I might have slapped her upside the head for that. Can't stand these Beverly hills women. Digusting. Actually all the housewifes are digusting.

Some things just need to be private and put to rest. The man is dead and she needs to grieve and move on and forget the 15 min of fame in front of the camera expoiting this tragedy. Unless, of course she is a shallow. . . insensative. . .money hungry. . . publicity seeking bimbo.. ummm Let's just see if she makes the right choice :)

also... if I spent 60,000 on my daughters 4th birthday party my husband would have me thrown in a psych ward. She hopefully will allow her daughter the memories she has of her father instead of tainting them .

I don't believe the story. If true and having worked with women's shelter; she would know to leave immediately. The counselors would have noticed too.
Sounds more like creating drama where there is none.

But most importantly is not just her child, but his other children who are a little older that Kennedy. He was a good dad and why would she destroy that image for ANY of the children. A very selfish, shallow, gold digger to me.

Any books that she may have been involved in, should have been cancelled immediately upon his death if she had ANY common decency as a woman, a mother and/or human being. Obviously she wa attracted to his money not him. I hope his family get an injunction against her to protect him and his children.

The man is gone....do you want your daughter to see this. She's young now....sit down when she is old enough and tell her about it if you think it will help her avoid something like this in the future but don't let her find out on tv.

Please, don't. It will look so self absorbed, and meaningless at this point.

All this coming from someone that was supposed to be an advocate against Domestive Violence. So was she lying to us then? Or now that he's gone? Nice way to make a buck Taylor.
