WHAT…. the hell??
To add to the pile of demerits against Russell Armstrong when it comes to the loving husband department, apparently he tried to drown his wife too!
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong recounts the awful memory in her Hiding From Reality memoir. But now there are EVEN MORE deets!!!
The details include Russell pretending to leave the room when they had friends Jennifur Diamond and Mark Alsentzer over.
But instead of "leaving," he actually stuck around in the bushes to spy on their conversation! Ugh!!
As soon as he heard Taylor say "just take care of Kennedy (daughter) if anything happens," he apparently JUMPED out of the bushes in a rage!!
One of the sources confirms:
Russell was in a frenzy, and he had a wild look in his eyes. He hit Mark, and threw Jennifur, her dog and Taylor in the swimming pool and tried to drown Taylor. Taylor thought she was going to die as Russell held her under the water.
Mark and Jennifur were able to pull Russell off of her and probably saved her life. The cops were called and a police report was filed. At that point Taylor hadn't been receiving any therapy, and she begged and pleaded with her friends not to press charges.
Taylor had to cover her neck for several weeks because of the choke marks. She even had trouble speaking because of Russell's strength when he tried to choke her.
I can't be sure that Russell gave them money to stay quiet, but he definitely gave them money to cover the expenses of Mark's medical stuff.
Jennifur was really, really upset and said that she couldn't talk to Taylor anymore because the abusive situation was too much. They tried to get Taylor to leave Russell, but she didn't want to give up her lifestyle.
We hope this neverending saga wakes some people up!!
Domestic abuse is NEVER OKAY. PERIOD.
