RHOBH Taylor Armstrong Talks Domestic Violence

Taylor Armstrong of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had quite the tumultuous year. Following the shocking suicide of husband, Russell Armstrong, Taylor revealed the domestic violence in the marriage and then came the train wreck that was season 2 premiere.

In a recent interview with Extra’s Maria Menounos (filmed after a little shopping in LA’s The Grove, as seen here), Taylor let the emotions flow and put on a pouty face for the camera.

Opening up about her 5-year-old daughter, Kennedy, Taylor revealed, “She saw a lot of things and that was the reason I left. It’s my job to break the cycle. I was a child who experienced domestic violence in my home, and then to allow that to happen to my daughter… I’m terribly ashamed of that.”

Armstrong is hosting a fashion show to benefit the W.I.N. (Women in Need) Foundation for victims of domestic violence and is not dating fellow Bravo! star Matt Nordgren.
