taylor armstrong new book gives domestic abuse details

Sounds like this will be a very difficult read.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong will present LOTS of details about the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her late husband Russell Armstrong in her new book Hiding From Reality.

Here is an excerpt of Russell's horrendous verbal abuse of Taylor from the book:

"Russell stormed in and started screaming'‘F*** you. Get the f*** out of my life. Your mom’s a whore, your mom's a b****."

In the book, Taylor also writes about an incident where Russell accuses her of sleeping with a Chippendales dancer and then hits her so hard that she ends up in the hospital:

"The pain was excruciating. I could tell that something was very wrong with my vision. This whole time Russell was glaring at me. 'You're so dramatic,' he said. 'You're fine.'"

And here's more from Taylor about the physical abuse that suffered over the years with Russell:

"He would grab my hair and bang my head against the side of the car between the two doors, or against the glass of the passenger-side window while he was driving, because it made his point to me but didn’t leave a visible mark."

Absolutely horrendous! Our thoughts continue to go out to Taylor as she continues to recover from the years of abuse that she endured!

Hopefully writing this book and helping inform others will give her some peace.

  1. 1

    What an evil monster; all while REAL ABUSED WOMEN are in secret shelters with lives destroyed….



  2. 2

    Other than your homo ass, who fucking cares. This whorthless whore is making cash off her dead husband. She's a joke, jsut like all the non-wife housewives. For god sakes. If this is what the homo's follow, no wonder we all make fun of you.



  3. 3

    Its a bit soon for a book…. weird timing just as the season finally of real housewives airs. I find the whole thing to be gross!!



  4. 4

    I believe this one will be at dollar stores in less than 90 days…



  5. 5

    Facts are facts. This person did not see the necessity of removing herself, or the need to protect her daughter until she was un-invited to a party. That's the thing about airing your laundry and inviting Bravo to film the mess..Your lies catch up to you, publicly.



  6. 6

    Kyle, give back Kim's house….I thought you were studying kabbalah?
    Kabbalah never talked about stealing.



  7. 7

    This is too soon even if her husband didn't commit suicide. I would expect a book like this years after an event.



  8. 8

    More fuel for the Russell Armstrong family to go into court and rescue Russell's daughter away from this pathetic whore
    I hope the family is also planing on going after that little weasel who puts that show on ,because they did allow her ranting to be aired, it drove Russell to suicide
    I could easily see a 25 million $$$$$$$ award



  9. 9

    Taylor is a liar….you would have seen bruises on her throughout the show and if the producers knew about it they would have had to address it because of insurance issues, yet conveniently you only see one black eye at the end of the show after Russell is dead so who says she didn't do it herself…..if Russell was right handed he wouldn't have hit her right eye…he would have hit the left eye…..

    she is a liar….don't pity a liar….I hear she is already dating…her poor daughter is being set up to be molested by mommies new boyfriends.



  10. 10

    OKRA> AGREE AGREE, why doesn't s/one in his family sue her and give any proceeds to her kids Or women who are truly battered(shelters) not hers.



  11. 11

    Now that she put the lies in writing - everyone sue the lying bitch!!!!



  12. 12

    Re: VirginGirl – it's all scripted, wouldn't be surprised if the death were "planned"



  13. 13

    I do not believe her at all! It is all for the show and made up. But, it backfired, big time.



  14. 14

    Pfffftt!!!!!!!!!!!! Been through worse. I don't need to write a fricken book about it. Didn't mess up her plastic surgery riddled face one bit did it?



  15. 15

    Who in their right mind would PAY ANY MONEY for this book? Who would want to read this book? Good grief people. Life's too short to waste time on such crap. Amazing that anyone at all would be the least bit interested.



  16. 16

    IN LIFE, she told doctors that her daughter kicked her in the face. IN DEATH (and a book) she says it was Russell? The woman is on a reality tv show. ER doctors and staff are trained to ask questions and look for signs of domestic abuse. Russell was THERE with her. BIG RISK for someone who might have feared his wife MIGHT have said something. But she never did. And no one ever saw anything. And a verbal argument isn't punching someone in the eye. He had no history of such and HE (as well as Taylor) were still on a reality tv show. As though he's punching her in the eye. But NOW as to sell a BOOK she can say or write anything she likes. And she's WORRIED she might not be asked back for a third season the show which prompted issues leading to her husband's SUICIDE? SHE'S NUTS.



  17. 17

    Perez: Seriously, you can't be dumb enough to believe this broad and offer her your sympathies, can you?? Or is it that you're friends with some of the HW's?? Bad reporting from a bad "journalist".

    AK: Unfortunately there are some past violent outbursts that Russell had, so he has a bit of a record there, however, there isn't one restraining order or doctor's report that would support that he EVER hit or abused Shana ("Taylor"). There's a special place in hell for psychopaths like her. She doesn't even hold her own daughter in regard. She's releasing this horrid info for her daughter to remember forever. Nice job there, Shana, and nicer still that Perez pats you on the back (as well as Miss Andy). Bleh!



  18. 18

    Wow. Her level of vulgarity and tackiness is mindboggling. (And how convenient her husband cant defend whatever garbage she comes up with to make a buck.) Truly grotesque person.



  19. 19

    No one knows what happened but the two them. If you don't agree with the book don't read it your lack of support will equal no profits. No one should ever doubt whether she was abused or not, mental abuse can be just as damaging. And to say she's setting her child up to be molested is disturbing and wrong triple M. Everyone deserves to move on with their life after something this horrible. You can only be in charge of yourself she is NOT responsible for his death. She's writing this book and doing other projects to make a life for her child now that their husband/father has killed himself. Stop judging other people it's tacky and disgusting.

    That book cover photo is either 20 years old or heavily airbrushed. Her upper lip does look much better with 3/4th's of the inflation edited off.



  21. 21

    Yeah well great liars usually go into lots of details like Casey Anthony. This woman is a hack & a grifter. That black eye on RHOBH was so fake & obviously made with make up & strategically placed hair. She is full of shit, No one ever saw this liar with bruises or anything & she kept going back to this guy. Send her book to the dollar store & send her back to OK to the trailor park she came from,



  22. 22

    This womas is a liar and who the hell would buy this book. If I were Russell's family, I would write a book about how she is a liar and manipulator. I am sure that Russell never touched her and she has fabricated everything. My only wish is that Bravo will dump this trash and move on.



  23. 23

    Its desperate and pathatic! My stomachs turning she basically ruinned her husbands life now she defaming him evern more in a book sick twisted demented what about her kid??? Child services should be involved and she should be defamed! Shes so starved for public attention at any extent it a dark mess. . She needs to be booted from the show and play victim at a shelter i thought rhobh are soppose to have class. . P.s. kyle, taylors not a good look for u id rather see you spending time with the creptkeeper in pumps vanderpump



  24. 24

    Did she even wait the soil to set on her husbands grave before further trying to distroy his memory! What about his daughter thats so low and disrespectful to the child let alone his family! Shes a poor pathatic excuss for a human being its sickning! I cring at the thought of what that child is subjected to not only did her mother try to distroy her father when he was alive but to try when he has past. Shes top quality GARBAGE! Bravo should do whats right and give that hot mess the boot! I think its also funny that she says that her only source of income, like we should feel sorry for her!!lol..thats about a perfect 10 on the pathatic meter! Mcds is hiring

    Re: Pumpkin John – OMG! I was going to say that!!



  26. 26

    Re: mutter – He did hit her but sorry I wanted to smack her every time she rolled her eyes at him because if she was scared of him would she do that?
    She wanted to be a victim and thrives on it, pisses me off because of all the woman and yes men who truly are victims of abuse!
