The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Taylor Armstrong and Husband Russell Seek Marriage Counseling

January 23, 2011 12:30 PM by Shayla Perry


Taylor Armstrong has been very open about the problems in her marriage throughout this season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, often in tears complaining about her husband, Russell, and comparing their relationship to that of co-star Kyle Richards and her husband, Mauricio. But in a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Taylor defended her husband against the outspoken host, and claimed that the two are working on their relationship. So, what did Wendy Williams have to say about Russell?

“With all due respect, [Russell] is a disgusting man to you,” host Wendy Williams said on her talk show. “It’s like abuse!”

When the audience erupted in applause, Taylor Armstrong sighed and admitted that she and her husband, Russell, were going through a difficult time in their marriage, but quickly came to his defense.

“I don’t feel abused,” Taylor insisted. “I feel like we have been…disconnected for some time.”

Adrienne Maloof, Taylor’s co-star, who we often see “bickering” with her husband, Paul, was visibly uncomfortable with being put on the spot, but also rushed to defend both Taylor and Russell, telling Wendy Williams that Russell is making an effort to focus more on Taylor, and revealing that the couple is currently seeing a marriage counselor.

“That’s a start,” said Maloof.

What do you think…. Will Taylor Armstrong’s marriage last?

    Oh come on, he’s abusive? Not even close. The guy is a workaholic and a nerd who doesn’t possess social skills. I’m shocked they’re even together…would love to know how they met and how he was “courting” her. He seems like a sweet guy who’s clueless more than he is intentionally dismissive or cruel. He’s cute with their daughter and the dog. Taylor is an emotional wreck. She’s very needy. Combine that with a guy who doesn’t know how to read people’s cues and you have a very disappointed and hurt wife who seeks out other ways to connect.That’s why she got so close to Kyle.

    It’s great that they’re in counseling together but I hope she’s also getting some of her own. She needs to learn to find happiness within herself first. She has so much going for her and yet she’s miserable. Sad really.

    I totally agree stephanie. I dont like the way Taylor talks down on her husband and makes him look like he is treating her sooooooo bad. If he let her spend 60,000 on a little kids birthday party tht the kid probably wont remember plus she didnt want to even be there….he seems pretty cool to me. I think she need to cut the man some slack.

    Taylor & Russell are together to rip off other people’s $$$$$
    They both made their bed and now are forced to lie in it.

    Some men are mushy and affectionate, and some are not. Just because he is not all over her doesn’t mean he doesn’t love her. He gives her everything and is a hard worker. Most men can’t show affection and absolutely HATE to talk about “feelings” especially on t.v. I have been married for 45 years to this type of man, but he does whatever i say, lets me run the house and money, tells me i’m still beautiful, and was crying and devestated when i went into surgery. Taylor, be grateful for what you have, and get a hobby. You could have it worse!
