‘RHOBH’ Star Taylor Armstrong Was Abused By Estranged Husband

Taylor Armstrong talked to People Magazine about being abused by estranged husband Russell.  “I felt like I was dying inside,” Armstrong said of her six year marriage. “Now, there’s some sense of peace.” The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star claimed that her arguments with Russell were explosive and would lead to him calling her names, throwing things at her, grabbing and shoving her and pulling her hair.

Russell denies the hair pulling, but told People, “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.”

Taylor cried when she filed for divorce, because she and Russell had tried everything to save their marriage.  Now the focus is on co-parenting their five-year-old daughter, Kennedy.  “It feels like a big loss that she’s not going to grow up with both of her parents in the same house.”

Yeah…I don’t know about airing one’s dirty laundry for an undisclosed sum.  Then again, Armstrong is a reality star and that Birkin bag’s not gonna pay for itself.  Air away.

Recognize the lady in pink in these pics?  That’s RHOBH’s new face, event planner Dana Wilkey.  Wilkey has been helping Armstrong through her divorce.  “She’s just the most beautiful person. She’s really focusing on Kennedy right now and surrounding herself with really good friends. She’s just focusing on being a good mom,” Wilkey told People.
