'Housewife' Interview Reveals Abuse

For the first time since her husband’s suicide, Taylor Armstrong opens up, in an interview on Entertainment Tonight Tuesday, about her abusive relationship with Russell—and it’s nothing like the drama we’ve seen on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “He would grab me by one side of the hair on my head, and bang the other side of my head against the wall,” she says through tears, adding, “He would say to me, ‘I’m afraid I’m going to kill you one day.’” Taylor’s confession is punctuated by disturbing images of her bruised and battered face. In a second portion of the interview airing tomorrow night, she gives a harrowing minute-by-minute rundown of being with her daughter and male friend when she discovered her husband’s dead body.
