Taylor Armstrong on How Her Daughter Is Coping With Father's Suicide (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 6th 2011 4:30AM
Taylor Armstrong, 'Watch What Happens Live''Watch What Happens Live' (Mon., 11PM ET on Bravo) is often a boozy laugh-fest, as it features cast members from Bravo's various reality shows. But there was a very different tone as Taylor Armstrong sat with Andy Cohen to hash out the latest developments on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'

She talked about how she felt like a complete train wreck while filming this most recent season, and reflected on her explosive breakdown in last night's episode. Armstrong also talked about how she and her daughter have been dealing with the suicide of her abusive ex-husband Russell Armstrong.

But Taylor wasn't the only one impacted by Russell's suicide. She said that 5-year old daughter Kennedy immediately sensed something was wrong when it happened, asking, "Did Daddy do something stupid?" It's a daily struggle for both of them, who spend a lot of time at castmate Kyle Richards' house, where Kennedy has a playmate in Richards' daughter Portia.

How do you feel producers have handled telling the story of the Armstrong family on this season of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'?

I Hate His/Her Ex is a book for anyone having difficulty coming to terms with their partner’s past relationships - brilliant read! Available on Amazon or most bookstores - Kindle or paperback!

The way the 5 year old daughter speaks of her dad reflects the level of respect the Mom had for him... Sheeeesh! Get out of a marriage like that and teach your children Love, instead of being in a dysfunctional relationship and having to show them hate! These women need to honor themselves and through these experiences show their children a better world. You take charge! and that will teach them to do the same one day but if the kids do find happier relationships in life then the Love of Mommy will always be there. That's how your children honor your example and you will be their legacy!

Sorry but any Mother that lets her husband abuse her over and over again, is doing more damage to her child than what the Father has dished out... Yes its hard at times to get oneself out of certain situations, but she has possesions that others dont have, which she coulda sold and taken her and her child out of that situation.

The child will handle it the way the parent handle death. If the mother is a wreck as this women seem to be then those are the signals she is sending her child. It is strange that her daughter would as such a question upon seeing her mom after her dads death. The child must of heard someone say that and it stood in her mind. I feel for the family and the hard times they have had to endure but as parents we have to give out kids some tool on how to handle death and it's apparent this child needs help and well as mom.

IT FIGURES THAT TAYLOR WILL USE HER DAUGHTER FOR MORE PUBLICITY. PERSONALLY HER DAUGHTER AT THE RECENT BIRTHDAY PARTY, ACTS LIKE A LITTLE BRAT. SHE SEEMS TO BE SHOWING SOME SPOILED BRAT TENDENCY AND TAYLOR DON'T SEEM TO CURB IT.
I DON'T BELIEVE THAT TAYLOR IS SUFFERING, SHE SEEMS TO BE MILKING ALL SHE CAN "FEEL SORRY FOR ME" I DON'T, SHE'S HALF THE PROBLEM ON HER HUSBAND'S SUICIDE.
THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES, THE ONLY ONE THAT SEES THE REAL TAYLOR IS LISA AND CAMILLE.
KYLE, SHE'S A FRAUD, SHE WAITS TO SEE HOW THE WIND BLOWS BEFORE SHE CHUMMY'S UP WITH THE HOUSEWIVES, SHE DOESN'T COMMIT LOYALTY, SHE PLAYS BOTH SIDES. NOTICE, SHE WANTS THAT GUY THAT HOSTED THE ENGAGEMENT PARTY FOR LISA'S DAUGHTER , SHE WANTS HIM TO DO ONE FOR HER DAUGHTER.
POOR KIM, SHE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THIS SHOW AND PUT HER LIFE BACK.
AND AS FOR THE HOUSEWIFE WHO WANTS A ROYALTY TYPE WEDDING, SHE IS A WANNABE, SHE IS NO ONES CLOSE FRIEND, SHE'S JUST A TAGALONG
LISA, YOUR MAKING KEN OUT TO BE A FIFTHWHEEL ON ALL THIS WEDDING PLANS, YOUR TOTALLY LEAVING HIM OUT OF THE PLANNING, HE LOOKED LOST, WHEN YOU WERE DECIDING WHAT TABLE DESIGN IS BEST AND YOU KNOW WHAT, GET RID OF THAT MILLION DOLLAR PLANNER, YOU GAVE HIM HIS FIFTEEN MINUTE OF FAME, YOU GUYS SEEM TO BE DOING WELL WITHOUT HIM, GET KEN INVOLVED.
