Real Housewife Taylor Armstrong to Write Tell-All About Troubled Marriage
Monday, December 05, 2011
That was fast. Only four months after her husband's suicide, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has announced she will release a memoir that shares details of her marriage to the late Russell Armstrong.
In an interview for Entertainment Tonight, Taylor discussed how the memoir, titled Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within, has helped her with the healing process.
"This has been cathartic for me," she said. "I hope my book gives readers a better understanding of my life and struggle, behind the scenes of all the Beverly Hills glamour, and will help women, and men, too, suffering in their own abusive relationships."
The book will be published by Simon & Schuster and will not only take a deeper look into the Armstrongs' marriage, but will focus on Taylor's mission to reach out and help other victims of domestic violence.
"I've been writing the book day and night to have it out quickly...as I want women, and men, to read it and help save and improve lives from domestic violence," she said. "I know what I'm talking about, from the violence of my own life."
Taylor's abusive relationship with her husband has been a much-touched-upon topic on this season of RHOBH. This season has featured the two in couples therapy as well as the other housewives trying an intervention to help Taylor at least admit the severity of the situation.
"I think the tragedy has allowed me to write even more effectively because now that person that I struggled with in an unhealthy relationship is completely out of my life," she explained. "I'm able to be very objective about how unhealthy our relationship was and what we each brought into the relationship and I feel like that distance, although it's been incredibly painful, has also given me new insight into our situation."
The book is due out in February of 2012.
