Real Housewives star Taylor Armstrong is writing a tell all book about her abusive relationship with Russell Armstrong. Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within will be released early next year and will reveal details about her abusive marriage.
Taylor Armstrong is writing a tell all book. The book will go into details about her marriage to Russell, the abuse she suffered in the relationship as well as in a previous relationship.
I am not so sure I support this idea. Not that my opinion matters, but hey, I can write my two cents☺
First of all it is her second abusive relationship. While she was on TV she made a big production about being a spokesperson for women in abusive relationships, all the while Russell was allegedly beating her. This season, she has stood by his side, defended him to her friends – after she told them about he abuse – and set a bad example for her daughter.
Sure, she filed for divorce, but she should have left him long before. Now Russell has killed himself and she is trying to make a quick buck.
A source told Radar Online: ‘It’s no secret that Taylor’s been strapped for cash since Russell died, and since she hasn’t received the advance on her book yet, a few of the Housewives have been helping her out financially.’
I’m sorry, but this is not a woman I would look up to or want advice from in any way. In addition, it is going to be out there for her daughter to read. And revealing personal details to the world, which is something she said she tried to protect her daughter from, is a bit crass. It is one thing to sit her down in the years to come and explain it to her, but now she will likely hear or read about it herself in a much more traumatizing manner.
I see Taylor as a weak individual who can’t do anything on her own. Writing this book isn’t an example of her strength; it is just showing how pathetic she actually is.
