The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star, Taylor Armstrong, will sit down with Dr. Phil today to discuss her estranged husband’s suicide. Taylor, who has been quiet since the suicide, just started speaking to the media this week. Keep reading for a sneak peek inside the Dr. Phil interview today.
Taylor definitely kept to herself after Russell’s suicide and focused on her five year-old daughter, Kennedy. Even with all the hype surrounding the season premiere of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Taylor continued to mourn in private. Just this week Taylor has returned to the media spotlight to discuss her troubled relationship with Russell.
On Tuesday, Taylor appeared on Entertainment Tonight for her first interview. An emotional Taylor, who is still wearing Russell’s wedding band, talked about her abusive marriage. There was a lot of physical and verbal abuse going on inside her Beverly Hills home. Taylor even shared photos of her beaten face, telling Nancy O’Dell that during one of their fights Russell punched her in the eye. Always trying to defend her husband, Taylor told the doctors her daughter had accidently kicked her in the face.
Today on Dr. Phil, Taylor discusses the fact that the Bravo TV cameras in her home added extra pressure to her already strained marriage. Us Weekly reports that Taylor tells Dr. Phil, “I can’t say what he was thinking at the time [of his death], but what I can say is that I believe that if it weren’t for the cameras, there’s a chance I wouldn’t be sitting here with you today.”
Russell’s family has always claimed that the Bravo show played a factor in his death. But other Bravo stars, like Bethenny Frankel, adamantly defend the network.
