Beverly Hills Reunion Reveals Russell Armstrong Was a Total AssholeTracie Egan Morrissey1/31/12 6:15pmFiled to: real housewivesTVThe real housewives of beverly hillsTaylor armstrongRussell armstrongtweetFb103EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink There's no way The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could have a reunion show without confronting the dead, abusive elephant in the room: Russell Armstrong. The women were asked about their reactions to his suicide, and whether or not they ever witnessed him abusing his wife Taylor. While none of them actually saw him hit Taylor, Lisa Vanderpump describes an emotionally abusive text he sent Taylor while the two were in Las Vegas. He apparently thought she was having an affair with a Chippendales dancer. It's demonstrative of just how out of his mind he was, seeing as how no woman has ever had sex with a Chippendales dancer.
