Did Russell Armstrong Really Beat Taylor Before He Died?

| Filed under: Sad SadReal Housewives

Vicious rumor or scandalous development? Honestly, we don't know what to believe anymore.

It's not secret at this point that Russell Armstrong, the Real Housewives star that committed suicide last week, had a dark history of being an abusive man. His wife, Taylor Armstrong, shortly before his death, came forward to insist that Russell was extremely violent and had beaten her on more that one occasion. Now, sources are claiming Russell's final act on this Earth was beating Taylor and leaving her in tears over their crumbling marriage.

According to Star Magazine, the night before Russell hung himself, he was with Taylor at her home. He allegedly got very upset with her when she brought up their dismal financial state and questioned his plans to make things better for their family. That's when Russell supposedly exploded and became physically violent towards Taylor. After he beat her, he left the house in a huff, leaving Taylor terrified and broken. A friend of the Housewives star said Taylor called her shortly after that, crying and "hysterically," claiming that Russell had punched her in the face. The friend explains that she was "terrified."

We're terrified for her. Either these allegations are not true and when she's ready, she's going to have the hard task of dismissing every claim made about him - or they are true. If they are true, what a hard road she has ahead of her. We can't imagine what she is feeling or how she is dealing. How does she come to terms with losing someone in her life this way? How does she grieve?

We just hope she stays strong for her daughter and finds from peace with all this. It won't be easy, but we want it for her.

    Sounds like Taylor starting more drama and involving EVERYONE in her personal business…you know she was calling everyone after wards for her alibi…I mean to tell them what happened.



  2. 2

    bruises and marks do not lie…telltale signs of abuse….this guy always seemed creepy to me…his fake, forced smile…Proof is in the pudding-he killed himself-a cowardly and selfish act….good riddance dude.



  3. 3

    I really find it hard to believe this is written by Mario… I am sure Bravo is supplying these details and text for Mario to run. It is unnecessary, and unproven. If he beat her… then she should shut up to the press or her friends who are sharing stories, and get herself into therapy and her daughter into grief counseling. The whole packaging of this story line of Taylor's victim/Russell's villain status is totally inappropriate considering he is DEAD.

    If it turns out these allegations are untrue, you are truly an evil individual for making a post like this against the character of someone who has passed away.



  5. 5

    Don't tell us that Russell actually did the RIGHT thing for a change and released Taylor from the terror of having him as a continuing, abusive presence in her life.

    Russell's death is the only way that Taylor will ultimately be free, not having to look over her shoulder or worry that his fists would turn on Kennedy some day.

    Stop speculating about this Mario. It's grossly unfair & total hearsay. You obviously have no clue & are just repeating what other people say without research or evidence. Seriously, someone needs to sue your ass. It's so irresponsible. Oh yeah, and the supposed 'victim' wife needs to withdraw herself from public life. It's all so tacky and sleazy, no matter what went on in private.

    Where is the evidence was an abusive man? You're going to go up the river on this one.



  8. 8

    You're terrified for her? Her abuser is dead. That pretty much solves the problem. You don't know the woman. Stop trying to make it sound like you have some kind of connection. I hope their daughter doesn't Google her father's name in the future and see all the shit you're posting non-top.

    Come on people, she married him for his money, cut his balls off, turned into a plastic woman who even a tranny wouldn't look like, got pregnant to seal the deal, emasculated this weak, depressed man then made her own money and moved in for the kill. Dontcha think it's odd that she never EVER was "abused" before he was dead? She's a famewhore and he's collateral damage. She'd sell the kid to the devil for a chance in the spotlight.

    Well he didn't beat her after.

  11. @v@ says – reply to this

    Well, he can't defend himself now, can he? That's why the old adage exists to not speak ill of the dead.

    I don't know why you keep posting shit and repeating shit about Russell. At this point the guy is dead and his family are probably still in shock about how sudden his death was. What happened is in the past now and there is nothing he can do to make it better. I can't stand Taylor but I can't imagine how hard it must be for her telling her daughter one day about what happened to her father, it's sad all around. Leave them alone…don't you think it's enough now?



  13. 13

    WHAT THE HELL ……
    The man is dead and she's still talking shit……?
    WTF….. HE'S DEAD, IF HE KICKED HER ASS HE WONT BE ANYMORE BECAUSE HE'S DEAD…
    WHY THE HELL IS SHE STILL TALKING SHIT ?????
    OH THAT'S RIGHT, KEEP THAT PITTY PARTY GOING TO MAKE MORE MONEY RIGHT.?
    I THINK SHE'S FULL OF SHIT….. SHE JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH MONEY FOR HER BLUES……



  14. 14

    Re: @v@ – I have to agree 100%. If he was an abuser why didn't she call the police or report this to her friends and family before he passed ? Something just isn't right with this whole thing. boo hoo feel sorry for me syndrom I think.

    There she is again with the fish hook pulling her lips back look.
