The drama on Bravo’s hit show, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, has gone from catty to downright serious. A major storyline of season two has been about Taylor Armstrong’s marital problems and abusive relationship. Before season two of RHOBH aired her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide. Now Taylor has a book that tells her side of the story, keep reading for all the details.

Season two of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has been difficult to watch, as viewers see how much emothional baggage Taylor is carrying around. Viewers see Taylor as a lonely, frail, depressed woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

From what viewers have seen on the show, it seems even Taylor’s closest friends didn’t even realize the severity of her situation. Well now Taylor wants everyone to know exactly what she was going through, so she shared all the details in a very revealing book. Taylor’s book, Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within, will be released in February.

What does Taylor want to accomplish by writing a book about her abusive relationship? Taylor told People Magazine, “I want readers in abusive relationships to learn from my suffering and use my book to help them find their own courage within.” As for her books she paints a very difficult situation with Russell. “My book takes readers behind the glamour of Beverly Hills to show them the terrible violence I suffered, and the slow and painful process of rebuilding my shattered life.”

    There is no question that she is writing this book for financial gain! I think it is absolutely reprehensible that this woman’s husband dies in August, and she immediately releases photos of an alleged beating by him. Now she is releasing a “tell all” book by February to capitalize on the tragedy of his death when he is conveniently not here to defend himself. In her “tell all” book, I wonder if she is going to address why she has changed her name 3 times over the past years, why one of her last names was “Ford” so that she could pretend she was a member of the Ford family, and why she and her late husband are being sued by people who have accused both of them of fraud. I also find it funny how she thinks her book is going to take people behind the scenes of Beverly Hills to show the abuse she endured. Believe me, no one is under the impression that these people were actually part of the true Beverly Hills lifestyle. They were just pretending to be, and defrauded and stole money from other people to support their lifestyle. The entire thing is disgusting. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS WOMAN’S BOOK!!!!

    I agree with the preceding comments above! I won’t be buying her book nor care to read about her. I feel so sorry for her poor daughter and what she has to live with!
