Whoa. Whoa… Eww…
In Taylor Armstrong's new book, Hiding From Reality, she talks all about the domestic abuse she endured while married to Russell Armstrong.
Russell, who committed suicide last summer, has been known since as the man from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills who beat and berated his wife.
And this book definitely isn't gonna help hide that!! But hopefully it will help other woman see the light and get out of their own abusive relationships!
In the book, she claims:
He would make comments when we were sexual and you know about my weight. No woman needs to be criticized in that moment - criticisms about having sex with me is like 'having sex with a skeleton.'
Icky!! No, no woman should ever be told something like, especially during sex!! But she also claims she didn't write it to smear Russell's image. She explains:
I love him to this day and miss him terribly. I got out way too late. I hope by others hearing the story they may get out sooner. When I wrote Hiding From Reality, I wanted it real and honest. Some of it was difficult to write.
Taylor also explains how verbal abuse can be worse than the physical kind sometimes:
I think you can see my eye has healed, but these things are going to stick with me a long time and sometimes, the emotional can hurt worse than the physical almost.
Oh man!! This is a never-ending saga!!
We wonder if we'll ever find out what was really going through his head before he hung himself on Mulholland Drive. There are so many theories out there… even conspiracy theories!!
Sigh… so sad all around. We really hope their daughter is doing okay through all of this!!
