Taylor Armstong’s book, Hiding From Reality details the abuse that she went through with Russell. I guess the book is supposed to be pretty graphic, and she didn’t hold back at all. She said that Russell used to call her names in front of Kennedy, beat her, and spy on her. She recounts, “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****.”
The ultimate was when she came home from Pandora’s Bachelorette party in Vegas…I guess he beat the crap out of her because he thought she slept with a Chippendales dancer. She said, “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…You’re fine.”
She continues, “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.”
I am so against abuse, but I’m so over hearing Taylor talk about it. I know she’s trying to be a spokesperson for domestic violence, but I hate that she uses it for PR. It’s so gross to me. As much as I love The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I’m glad it’s over so we can move forward from this whole Taylor/Russell thing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about the reunions, but just ready to move on to a new season.
