Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Taylor Armstrong says Russell Armstrong was abusive

Posted on

Taylor Armstrong says in a TV interview that her late husband roughed her up and threatened to kill her. Taylor, part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, spoke to Entertainment Tonight for a segment airing Tuesday. Her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, committed suicide last month.

According to an ET transcript, Armstrong says her husband once grabbed her by the neck, shoved her against a wall and said he’d kill her if she ever again made pizza without vegetables for the family.

In an interview with People in July, Russell Armstrong said: “Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were.”

He said the reality show had “literally pushed us to the limit.”
