Camille Grammer Confronts Taylor Armstrong About Domestic Abuse On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

| Filed under: Sad SadReal HousewivesReality TV

We all knew that this was coming, and yet it still didn't make it any less heartbreaking.

On last night's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, a simple, trivial fight between Taylor Armstrong and Lisa Vanderpump quickly escalated into an intervention of sorts when it was finally brought to light what audiences at home have already known for months - that the reality starlet's husband, Russell Armstrong, had been violently abusing her for a majority of their marriage.

Watch the clip as Camille Grammer says enough is enough and finally tells it like it (above).

Obviously, reality television is not the ideal place to discuss something as delicate and serious as the subject of domestic abuse, but from the way it sounds, Taylor had been coming to these women off-camera for quite some time, and as she's basically been falling apart on-screen this entire season, we can't say we blame them for finally having to speak up and force her to address the difficult reality of her marriage.

We just sincerely hope that all of this airing can help similar women in Taylor's position see that they are not alone, and it can give them the inner strength to find help and get out before it's too late.

CLICK HERE to call the National Domestic Abuse hotline if you, or someone you love, may be a victim to violence at the hands of their partner.

P.S. On a lighter note, is it just us, or has Camille become the MVP of this season or WHAT? Between this and the mermaid incident, gurl is seriously FANTASTIC!

    Kyle, pls give but Kim her house. It's not fair the way you stole the house away from here…she trusted you.

    When part of an abused woman's 'inner strength' is a ton of money and a tv contract, they have a lot more options. If watching a bunch of rich women perform in a semi-choreographed situation helps them, fine. Family Guy did it better. Just keep in mind that the main goal of these plastic women is fame - they will exploit any situation to put themselves in the lime light.

    I just think it's feels wrong to air this on tv. It;s true we know it, but i mean the man is dead. zFor the sake of his family, this shouldn't be aired on tv. Yikes.



  4. 4

    Unless Bravo is going to expose Taylor for lying about the abuse…..why are they bashing a dead father of three has his wife not done enough damage?



  5. 5

    You mean ALLEGED abuse. I don't condone DV one bit but Taylor's claims are unsubstantiated. She has changed her name 4 times: Shana Hughes, Shana Taylor, Taylor Ford, Taylor Ford-Armstrong, Taylor Armstrong, I don't buy a word this Beverly Hills wanna be says. iF she was abused, she needs to take her daughter back to Oklahoma and raise her quietly. And it is so wrong of Bravo to slander a dead man based on Taylor's lies.



  6. 6

    Taylor is a huge liar!!! She took that man's man's and dumped him. She belongs in Texas (where she is now, sleeping with another reality person). Gold-digging whore!



  7. 7

    LOL. . . . I can't wait to see Russell Armstrong's mother defending her "innocent" son cause dramaz of this and the photographic evidence. I'm glad Bravo finally tackle this problem, after the guy killed himself to look like a "hero" (look that on encyclopaedia dramatica, if you don't get what I'm saying.) I mean seriously Taylor should get booted off the show, it's gotten lame since they'll keep her on but not show her story for the series. I mean seriously.

    Confront? Not so much, as she was kind but candid about how she put it on the table. It was the elephant in the room alrighty.

    Re: Whatevers!!! – It's not Kim's house. Their mom left the house to all of her daughters and Kyle and her husband bought everyone out.



  10. 10

    Didn't you love Kyle's little smirk on her face while everyone was arguing.

    Your a kunt Kyle…..and a bully…



  11. 11

    Re: JustReckless – He didn't kill himself to look like a hero you dumb bitch….he obviously knew what Taylor was saying about him and she probably threatened him with making up abuse stories so she could get full custody and he was a wuss and couldn't take it.

    There is no hero you dumbass.

    Re: Pinky_love – she loaned Kim $20,000.

    Since when can you buy a house in California for $20,000………you're an idiot…..they should have sold it and split the money….

    Kyle stole it……..



  13. 13

    Dumb twats



  14. 14

    Re: Pinky_love – $20,000… really?
    Kyle, just give her back the house. The poor woman has problems…she supported you guys when she was a little girl, I thinks she was more than generous in her day.



  15. 15

    Who cares if he's dead!? Why in death are you supposed to be sanitized and absolved from all your wrong doing? If he beat her, he beat her. HE made the choice to kill HIMSELF. Let the truth stand whatever it is. Just because you dislike the woman doesn't mean she didn't experience abuse. DV doesn't only happen to people that are or good or that you'll even feel remotely sympathetic towards.



  16. 16

    I was personally really dissapointed that the ladies didnt believe or support Taylor. I've been in an abusive relationship and 100% believe her. Most men who are abusive go out of their way to be very polite and charming when out in public, but behind closed doors they are the complete opposite. Taylor has a daughter she is taking care of and is not financially independant enough to provide for her family without Russell. I think she felt very trapped and was afraid to leave him because of financial security and her daughter. It must have been heartbreaking to confide in these women and have them not believe her.

    Re: Aurora Borealis – He wasn't charming and didn't go out of his way???/ These women are self absorbed but i don't think their monsters. Taylor was giving them stories of living in fear and horrible beatings, if they believed it for a second I doubt Bravo or the ladies would do nothing while she and a child were there. She was telling everyone who would listen. She was also lying about a zillion other things. DV is terrible. Playing a victim for money and sympathy gag



  18. 18

    how dare this trout faced bitch golddigging hoe talk to Lisa like that! Do not fuck with Lisa or she will cut you. She's sarcastic to you because you are a blatant joke and phoney.



  19. 19

    Taylor is icky. Needs to be off the show. I'm bummed Bravo casts some of these ladies because they are not healthy & happy. I guess that is better for the ratings?

    I LOVE Lisa.

    Re: Honor – Every woman said repeatedly "Russell was always nice and polite to me". They usually are to everyone else but their wife. Russell was a weirdo on the show and you could clearly tell something was wrong with him. After Russells death they showed the reports of Taylor needing to go to the hospital for a broken jaw and eye problems which she had to get reconstructive surgery for. She wasnt lying and the women on the show should have believed her and supported her. Once you've been in an abusive relationship you can see the signs from a mile away and she was clearly in one.



  22. 22

    Re: Kim K's SAGGY Ass – it's called sarcasm, if you know what that is. I don't think you would though I've only every seen you bitch and whine about other peoples comments. Seriously go back to school and get a real life like the rest of the world.

    How ironic is it that after a year of villification by many for her behavior last season, FINALLY when Camille acts in a way that is real, genuine, honest & ACCURATE, Camille feels the need to apologize for doing so on her Bravo blog. I have never admired Camile until viewing her reactions in this episode. I'm saddened that her perception is so skewed. By verbalizing what she did, Camille FINALLY shone light upon the 'dirty little secret' these women had been holding. Most survivors are aware of the phrase "a person is only as sick as their secrets".Taylor was in a safe place for a confrontation/intervention​ to occur & also had two exit/escape plan alternative living situations (until her pathological rant at Lisa Vanderpump resulted in the rescinding of the offer of her home); Camille's being the second. Taylor's pathology rises to the level of presenting as one who revels, enjoys & has perfected the 'I'm a victim" role. Her selective memory & hearing has been an ongoing thread through RHOBH. Her having the nerve to call the other women chicken(s) & QUACK with THOSE LIP IMPLANTS is further evidence of how distorted her perception of reality is. Her credibility goes down with each episode. My heart goes out to her daughter BIG TIME.

    @Re: Dragonsheart – I COULD NOT HAVE SAID IT BETTER! I will only add that this woman is not only a sociopath but if she kept her daughter in a violent situation then maybe CPS should be talking with her.



  25. 25

    We could see that Russell controlled Taylor. He told her to leave the party when his wife was enjoying the time with the others. You can see that Taylor was not feeling comfortable with her husband around. If he didn't do anything wrong he wouldn't commit suicide. Sorry to say, commit suicide and leaving a wife and a little 4 YO daughter was not a nice way to end a relationship. I think Kyle is the one who is willing to listen and understand Taylor. Do we watch the same show? Kim needs to grow-up. Moving and living together with a man that she barely knows him is a really a risk. Well we'll see what will happen to Kim. I don't know why, but seeing kim's "new man", made me feel uncomfortable. There is something in that man made me feel that something is not right. I hope I'm wrong and I wish Kim doesn't make a huge mistake moving together with that man.



  26. 26

    I think Lisa has changed this season and become more arrogant and catty.



  27. 27

    Taylor is looney tunes, cocoa for cocoa puffs, insane in the membrane etc! I DO NOT CONDONE DV AT ALL… HOWEVER, How can Taylor have such a dramatic emotional break-down, then go outside and talk to Paul AS IF NOTHING EVER HAPPENED????!!!!!!

    To me it seemed like Taylor needed somebody to take out her frustration and pent up rage on and it hapened to be Lisa. Which I didn't think was fair. Yes her and Lisa have had issues but nothing to warrant the outburst Taylor displayed.

    If Taylor was that much of an emotional basket case, she should have seeked PROFESSIONAL HELP not tried to make Lisa her human punching bag!

    Camille is my favorite housewife… She is so not this bad person Kelsey has tried to make everyone believe. He did her a favor by leaving - she walked through the pain with dignity and grace…She is a great mom, a great friend, and one of the most sensible and strongest of the housewives. She is classy, caring, and generous.. I'm so happy her true beautiful self has been shown this season. I applaud her honesty regarding Taylor - Camille knew that Taylor needs help and that the more the other housewives covet the secret of the abuse the worse things would get. Taylor engaged everyone and got in the typical abuse pattern of complaining about her man and her marriage without ever removing herself from the problem or taking responsibility for staying. Camille was a catalyst for Taylor to get honest and help save her own life! We need more women like Camille in this world!

    Re: mitri2010 – I think he's gay - nothing wrong with it of course, unless you are a gay man parading as straight… Kim is a mess and needs to be able to stand on her own before engaging in a committed relationship… not drinking for a few months does not solve her problems! On the other hand, Kyle needs to get a life and stop treating her sister like she some kind of idiot who can't make a decision without her. Kyle is one controlling B****! Not found of her at all…she's quite the backstabber and gossip whore!

    Adrienne and Paul are great. He is so fun and witty ~ sexy too! Adrienne gives him a bit of a hard time but I bet she is also very sweet and tender with him. They seem to adore each other and understand how each other operates, which makes for a great marriage! I think Lisa is straight forward and I love how she addresses things. Her love of her family and home is obvious. I so didn't get Taylor going on and on to Lisa, when Lisa NEVER said she wasn't Taylor's friend - Lisa said "I know I'm not your BEST FRIEND, but I'm here if you need help!" Quite different than how Taylor's sick mind spun it - something Taylor does quite often. Lisa is also far more intelligent than Taylor will ever be; thus I think Lisa doesn't have much patience (nor would I) for Taylor's rants and stretching of what is said. Lisa's life is so much bigger than that! Bravo Adrienne and Lisa!
