Taylor Armstrong Believes Her Husband Might Have Killed Her If It Weren’t For Real Housewives

Taylor Armstrong says that if the Real Housewives cameras weren't a constant presence in her home she might've died at the hands of her late husband, Russell. "There was a storm happening in my life that was very separate from a camera being there," she said. "If the cameras were not in my life, there's a good chance I wouldn't be sitting here today because a lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide versus just suicide." With Russell committing suicide in August, Taylor — who has a titanium implant "holding up" her right eye as a result of the abuse — added she's grateful their daughter Kennedy didn't lose both parents: "I'm thankful to be here. Imagine if she had two less parents, instead of one. I feel thankful at this point." [E!]
