Taylor Armstrong Says the Physical Abuse Went on For Five Years:
Taylor Armstrong spoke out for the first time about the alleged violence she allegedly suffered at the hands of her husband Russell Armstrong during the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion during season two. The housewife revealed to Andy Cohen, the reunion’s host, and the other women that the allegations of abuse were real and that the violence had begun five years earlier, while she was carrying their daughter Kennedy.
The abuse persisted, according to Taylor, “about every six weeks.” Taylor also said that Russell often threatened to bankrupt her and her daughter and leave them penniless if she ever tried to contact the police. Even worse, several people asserted that Taylor’s accusations were untrue and inaccurate following the reunion.
On a podcast edition of Divorce Sucks with Laura Wasser, Taylor, per The Blast, was keen to correct the record. “In the beginning, there were those who questioned if I may be mistreated. They probably believe that no one is abused by Beverly Hills’ golden gates. We all know it is not true, that it exclusively occurs in socioeconomically disadvantaged areas. Across the board, it occurs in every race “Taylor persisted.
Taylor Armstrong Found Her Husband Dead:
According to Bravo’s Daily Dish, Taylor Armstrong was open and honest during a segment of the Divorce Sucks with Laura Wasser podcast. Taylor revealed on the show that she discovered her husband’s lifeless body after getting a strange feeling. “He was a workaholic, so it was entirely out of the ordinary for him to not be in his office when I went to meet him one day.
His office was also dark. Moreover, I couldn’t help but believe that something dreadful had occurred “She spoke. “And I had never thought of it before. He was a tremendously narcissistic person who you would never expect to commit suicide. But in the end, I had discovered him hanged in the home he had moved into.”
Taylor had to struggle to retain her cool until the babysitter arrived and removed the couple’s small daughter from the situation because she was out waiting in the car. Taylor acknowledged in the same podcast interview that she wishes she had shielded her kid from the abuse she saw more effectively.
Taylor Armstrong found fresh love with John Bluher, an attorney, despite going through such heartbreak. Taylor revealed that Bluher aided her with legal guidance during the trying period after her estranged husband’s death in an interview with E! News. They had really met through a common acquaintance.
The pair later were married in April 2014 at a beachside ceremony after making an appearance on VH1’s Couples Therapy. On the day of her wedding, Taylor provided the following statement to People: “My closest friend and I were married, completing Kennedy’s family. I’m positive that John was placed in my path by the universe for a reason. We had to be together.” John loves me for who I am, she continued, “just as I am.”
We’re happy for Taylor because it’s been a long, gloomy path to happiness.
