'Real Housewife' Taylor Armstrong to write memoir about abuse

Housewives Armstrong

(Isabella Vosmikova/Bravo)

On the current season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills – shot before the suicide of star Taylor Armstrong’s husband Russell in August of this year – much of the drama has come from the ladies trying to get Armstrong to be honest about whether she was suffering abuse in her marriage. These days, she’s much more forthcoming: Armstrong is releasing a memoir about her marriage, including addressing domestic violence issues, through Simon & Schuster, E! reports.

Scheduled for a Feb. 7 publication, the memoir is expected to reveal details of the Armstrongs’ marital problems and Taylor’s recent efforts as an advocate for victims of domestic violence. There have been no reports as to whether the proceeds will go to charity.

What’s your take on Armstrong’s upcoming book? Has she finally “found her voice,” as she says in the opening credits of the show, and using it for good? Or is this whole business flat-out sickening?
