Taylor Armstrong shows her CAT scans, tells her story of abuse on ET

Taylor Armstrong had her big interview with Entertainment Tonight last night. I thought that she might gloss over things when it came to explaining what happened with her late husband, whom she claims was abusive to her and caused massive eye and facial injuries when he punched her over the summer. She released photos of her injuries a few days ago, and many people were skeptical that they were caused by Russell since Taylor is not the most truthful person. I assumed wrong, she didn’t mince words or hold back details. Taylor described what went on in their relationship, saying that she was abused regularly, that she lived in fear of her husband’s rage and that she covered for him frequently. It was hard to watch and I believed her completely. The people who say she’s lying or exaggerating for sympathy are wrong, in my opinion.

On how Russell abused her while she was pregnant for a stupid reason
He grabbed me by the neck and shoved me against the wall and he said, “If you ever make my children a pizza without a vegetable again, I’ll kill you.”

On the cycle of abuse
You live your life constantly on eggshells waiting for the other shoe to drop. You don’t know if you’re just going to talk to your girlfriend too long at dinner and that’s going to cause someone to fly into a rage. These were not beatings that would go on for hours at a time… there are certainly women out there that experience that. [cries] My heart goes out to them.

Russell was very careful in how he would do things because he didn’t want to leave a lot of physical signs of injury. So often if we were leaving a place and he were angry he would grab me by one side of the hair on my head and bang me by the other side against the car, by the back where you would open the door. Because you would get knots and things in here (touches back of head under hair) and you wouldn’t see it so much.

Sometimes when he was driving he would just reach over and slam my head against the inside window if he were angry.

Just a lot of screaming combined with a few hits to the face.

On if Russell saw himself as an abuser
I don’t think so, not until the end… until the last time that he hurt me when I finally ended the relationship. I think my requiring surgery and there being such specific radiographic evidence of the injury, that he finally really had to look it in the face. I had never seen my husband cry in all the years that we were together. And when I finally showed him the MRI he just put it down and started to cry. I think that, him having to come to terms with that this had gone on for so long.

He had mentioned he was afraid to kill me. I think he meant it in an accidental way.

On how many times he had abused Taylor
Maybe 20. That night was only one punch.

Russell’s last abuse of Taylor
He kept on, he was calling me names and he just reached up and punched me in the eye. I could feel my eyeball shift like it wasn’t in the right place any longer.

I was covering my eye and he was saying “you’re being dramatic, you’re such a drama queen. Now you can tell all your friends that I’ve hit you.”

I said “I can tell you’ve really hurt me this time.”

I could have lost my eye for sure.

On how she explained her injury to the doctor
I told him that Kennedy had kicked me, because Russell told me to tell him that. Russell came with me to the appointment and sat in the chair the whole time. When I came out of the flap repair he immediately came into the recovery room with me and stayed there until I left. I didn’t want him to go to jail so I guess that was all right with me.

On if the doctors questioned her
They were a little surprised as to the degree of an injury from a child.

On the photos of her injury
I feel like they’re very hard to look at. I also feel like they send a pretty loud message that regardless of how someone looks on the outside, you probably don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors.

On why Taylor is coming out now
[They air a message urging domestic violence victims to get help.] I never wanted to call the police, because I didn’t want him to go to jail. I loved him.

On coming out with this after Russell’s death
I mourn the loss of him… more than anyone. At the same time, I’ve put myself second in order to protect him, and he doesn’t need my protection anymore, but there are a lot of women in this world that probably do. So I have to fight for the living now.

[From Entertainment Tonight’s video]

On ET they explained that the bones on the bottom of her eye socket were fractured, that she had just had lasik eye surgery and that the punch had “wrinkled the corneal flap” of her eye. Taylor showed her CAT scans of the injury, and given her story and the way she told it she makes an extremely strong case. I believe that Russell punched her to cause that injury, that she was going through years of emotional and physical abuse with him, and that she was cowed and upset most of the time. It would also explain so much of their relationship dynamic that was shown on Real Housewives. Tomorrow ET is going to air the part where Taylor recounts discovering Russell’s body after he killed himself. They had a preview and it’s devastating to watch. I doubt we’ll cover that.

    I know there is going to be a brigade of posters claiming she’s making up the whole thing. So are all the other women who had restraining orders out on this jerk making it up too? Just because she’s not a good person doesn’t mean she deserves a beat down.

  2. Tierra says:

    I wish they would have questioned her on their pasts scams and the people who they ripped off and literally stole money from.
    Like i said in a previous post, Her DV doesnt absolve her from all her criminal activity with other people’s money.
    I think she’s using this to not only extend her 15 min. and make some money off the situation, but also to try to divert attention from all their scamming and stealing that her and Russell committed TOGETHER. She was a major player in those scams. lets not forgot those innocent people who lost tons of money to these two.

  3. Jules says:

    How much did ET pay her?

  4. constance says:

    Her daughter’s expression, SAYS IT ALL. This woman has the worst facial structure. You stare at it, trying to figure out what is so off about it. I can’t believe anything that comes out of a face like that. If she was abused, I feel bad for her, I don’t think relationships should ever get to that point. However, if he beat you once, you should have resolved to get you and your children out of there. She didn’t because she was obsessed with the money and criminal acts. She needs to get a real job and raise her kids. I can’t watch ET anymore. It’s all about the Dina Lohans in the world.

  5. Molly says:

    Wow, I cried watching that. I knew watching the show, that something seemed really off about their marriage, but now that I know, I feel badly for Taylor. It’s difficult because women who are in love with a lifestyle are also hard pressed to leave a marriage because they think they can’t get better or will lose the life (and family) they have. Very sad. I’m not saying she didnt love Russell, but she also didnt feel she could leave him.

  6. Ms Smith says:

    I believe that Russell hit her. I dont believe that she is telling her story to help other women. She is telling her story for money and for fame. Why else would she talk about the suicide? How does that help women who are victims of DV?

    @Tierra agreed.

  7. theotheryael says:

    @constance – what about women in abusive relationships who aren’t rich or living a wealthy lifestyle? it’s cruel of you to say that she stuck around for beat downs because she liked the money that came with it. unless you’ve been in an abusive relationship, you have no right to question why she stayed as long as she did.

    taylor may not be the best person around, but NO WOMAN deserves to be abused. no man deserves abuse either.

    having lived 15 years with an abusive father, and spent a year with a very abusive boyfriend, i can tell you that leaving isn’t as easy as packing a bag and going. not at first. you love this person. you justify the abuse. at first.

    bad person or not, criminal activity or not, i believe her story. and i stand by the fact that she didn’t deserve any of it.

  8. Kellie says:

    I dont feel sorry for her at all.

  9. GiGi says:

    I feel like this woman has been put in a pretty bad place. Abused, now a single parent and allegedly in a very bad place financially. I don’t blame her for selling her story, especially when it’s so compelling. People think of abusers as low class addicts/alcoholics but there are many women (and men) of all classes who suffer.

  10. becky says:

    Pouting like that only makes taylor more unlikable.

  11. lolas says:

    I find it offensive in the extreme that this clearly troubled woman and her story of abuse is treated (by her as well) as entertainment. Her face was already disfigured by her plastic surgery, and her decision to be ‘the abused one’ for a tv show is in my opinion a sad comment on what we consider to be something juicy to watch on television. I believe her story, and am sorry for her, but the rest of her life is based or was based on lies, and I just don’t get it.

  12. bros says:

    if its true I feel bad for her, but she is a total ninny and professional victim. making speeches at a DV charity with her nasty husband abuser in the same room, you really have to be all about the glitz and glam and sham in order to stand up at the podium and recount how your mom was abused and you got out of the situation and built a life for yourself in beverly hills, meanwhile you are getting punched at home. it takes a real delusional money hungry, posh-life loving ninny to put up with that for years and then go lie about it in public at a DV charity organization.

  13. Chris says:

    It’s hard to feel sorry for such a awful person…..and hard to believe anything she says….where is the line between truth and lies. What is self serving and what is for entertainment. Awful woman…truly awful.

  14. Jayna says:

    Oh, I think she was abused, which is horrible. But I think she never left him for one reason only. She loved the social status and he could provide the appearance of money. Before him she was a middle 30s nobody wanting to be somebody. The show escalated their problems on that she was gaining more independence. And he had no money by the end. Not much to stay for. She loved their lifestyle. She was a phony with all her spending which I’m sure put tremendous pressure on him. Her 60,000 daughter’s birthday party says it all about her. It was all about impressing, not about the financial stability of their lives. Now she sells and/or leaks every dirty detail because the woman doesn’t work. When the show dumps her next year she will fall apart. She better find an older sugar daddy who doesn’t mind the fish lips.

  15. Stephanie says:

    My goodness…..people are so heartless sometimes with their comments. It breaks my heart to hear the lack of compassion.

    I worked as a domestic violence counselor at a crisis center. I helped women (and some men) in the entire process from the first steps of leaving, finding them housing, the entire legal process, etc. I can tell you that I helped some individuals “leave” more than 6 or 7 times. It is not easy to leave. As much as people in normal, healthy relationships cannot understand it…. The only way I can describe it is that it is like a disease/disorder of the mind. Like alcoholics, drug abusers, anorexic/bulimics, etc. Saying that she should have left or she is using this for fame is pretty insensitive to the fact that she was a VICTIM to this man.

  16. constance says:

    She has not presented herself in any other way than that of staying in a fatal relationship for his support.

    My father is an un-medicated belligerent bipolar, whom my mother stayed desperately and cruelly with for 25 years- when my sister graduated hs. I left my home several times in my youth living on the street, and fighting to maintain my education. I put myself into relationships based on wrongly perceived “needs” from that person. My son’s father, and first father figure to my daughter, treated me with sadist behaviour during my teenage years. I got support when I moved away for college, I realized the cycle of brushing off abuse I was in, and I got out.

    Someone with money who could cash out and get away from an abuser, find support, and find security should do it. Bleeding out this man’s suicide into a story where she gets payed to be the victim and infer that he deserved what he got is disturbing. This is not the interview I would do and show to my children as a reflection of our family’s problems to the entire world.

  17. Cletus says:

    I think I believe her,, too. The way she talks about how he knew where to hurt her so it wouldnt show… and shes matter-of-fact about it. That just resonates as truth to me, and I bet it does to any woman who has been beat on.

    The thing that made ME stay for as long as I did was total disbelief and denial, like “this cant possibly be my life. This shit has GOT to be a fluke”. For me, reality set in slowly. I didnt leave until I had a shotgun pointed in my face and I truly thought I was about to be straight-up murdered. And I STILL didnt cal the cops. I figured if he was set to shoot me in the face with some double-aught over the laundry piling up, there was going to be some REALLY crucial shit coming my way if I sent his ass to JAIL.

    So yeah, she sucks… but it doesnt mean shes full of shit about what a fucked up situation her marriage was.

  18. Dibba says:

    Law, I can’t wait for these stories to end.

  19. miss_bhaven says:

    Famewhore, yes, but I do feel so sorry for her. She needs help. She seems so terribly broken. They are better off without him. He was a POS.

  20. becky says:

    The issue is not whether or not she’s lying or exagerating. The problem here is that she is taking this very disturbing story and using it to gain sympathy and fame, not to metion money. Yes, Russell is despicable and shoud be in jail, but watching her in the stoplight, loving every minute of the attention, is terrible.

  21. becky says:

    celebitchy, please at least link the second part for us readers who aren’t in the U.S.

  22. Samigirl says:

    You ladies are 100000% correct. Regardless of the situation, wealthy, or, in my case, 18, dirt poor, and in a state that I wasn’t familiar with, it’s definitely not easy. You make up excuses to justify why you deserved it, or why they were still a good person, etc. It’s hard to leave someone that you are very much in love with, and, I could imagine, even harder if you had a child with them. You keep saying, “next time, I’m gone. I won’t let this happen again.” But you don’t. And it happens over and over again. I honestly believe that, had it not been for my amazing father, physically coming and taking me away, I’d be dead. It’s a terrible situation, and to this day, if my sweet husband even raises his voice a little during an argument, I cower. Not his fault, and he has never/would never touch me like that…it’s just hard to get over it.

    That being said, it is important to get the story out. DV is a BIG deal. However, knowing she got paid taints everything that’s coming out of her mouth. I told mine for free. And I’ll tell it to the world for free. Just so people will learn.

  23. lin234 says:

    I read that article someone posted yesterday about how there was irrefutable evidence that both Taylor and Russell scammed millions of dollars from people over the years to fund their lavish lifestyle.

    In one case, there was a middle class widow who thought she was making investments for her children in the future only to find out it was a lie. They scammed her out of 30,000.

    While I can sympathize with women who are abused by their partners, as I was physically and mentally abused by my mother growing up, I have no sympathy for someone I consider the scum of the earth. Her intentions are for sympathy, money, and attention.

    I have to wonder how many lives she has ruined by scamming innocent people of their money to throw her daughter a $60,000 party Kennedy didn’t even appreciate.

  24. Judy says:

    Okay, I haven’t read the story yet, but I’ve watched “Taylor” (not her real name) on Real Housewives and don’t think there’s one real thing about her, and, considering the current circumstances, I’m not proud of myself for saying this, but she is one of the strangest-looking women I’ve ever seen. Too much really bad plastic surgery, weird body, weird face, nothing but bones, completely superficial, trying to be something she’s not and never has been, and motivated only by $$$. She turns my stomach.

  25. Roxy750 says:

    I believe her. She’s a person, a woman. Abuse is not easy to come to terms with and it changes you.

  26. Judy says:

    I’ve read the story above now, all of which I had already read. The ET interview tomorrow was mentioned–she’s ALSO on Dr. Phil tomorrow, again telling the whole ghastly story. At some point, recounting being abused for countless entertainment shows for $$$ leaves me unsympathetic…and I’ve been through something very similar myself.

  27. jc126 says:

    I believe she’s a victim who didn’t deserve any of it, but she is apparently a sleaze in her own right as well. The whole going on TV after his death seems “off” as well.

  28. icantbelievethis says:

    I think there are more important things for her to focus on now than doing these appearances. Children who have a family history of suicide have a higher rate of depression and attempting suicide. That should be her focus, getting her daughter (and herself) help. I don’t see how airing all this in the media is helping her daughter. She’s not standing up to her abuser and he doesn’t have the chance to defend himself.

    No one deserves to be abused, but what does it help to do this now?

  29. Ms. Candy says:

    At first I was on the line when I read this but now I can honestly say I do feel sorry for her because no woman deserves to be beaten –

    She may have feared for her life if she came out while he was alive and breathing. A person just never know the reality of any situation unless your living it yourself.

  30. Lady of the Lake says:

    The main thing that doesn’t jive is that both agreed to be on the Real Housewives show, even for a fairly hefty paycheck. With so many skeletons in the closet, how on earth did they think this would be a good idea? To the extent that the people in these shows are largely self-delusional, it would seem that these two were, sadly, the most misguided of all.

  31. Lady D says:

    “It breaks my heart to hear the lack of compassion.” It is depressing.
    Lady of the Lake, I don’t think any reality shows are a good idea. Seriously contributing to the dumbing down of our countries.

  32. GIRLYGIRL says:

    Pug fugly

  33. DarkEmpress says:

    I have a lot of sympathy for her. She seems so sad. Abuse is never acceptable.

  34. Jackie says:

    I believe she was abused but I really didn’t like the fact that she had told the doctors that the injury happened because her daughter accidentally kicked her in the face. She couldn’t come up with some other reason? I get that no one would think a 4 or 5 year old would do it on purpose, but really, to blame your child for the injury your abusive husband caused?

  35. anne says:

    Did she have that upside down smile surgically placed on her face?

  36. nikki says:

    I agree that it is awful that she was being abused and no one has the right to say what she should have done to get out of it because no one was in her exact situation with her exact husband. However, that does not dissolve her part in manipulating many people out of their money for her own lifestyle.
    I think sometimes when you show a lack of care and respect for others lives, you may attract people that have no care or respect for your own.

  37. original kate says:

    “I mourn the loss of him… more than anyone.”

    ummm…except maybe his children? she needs to stop milking this for publicity and comfort her children, who have just lost their father. the guy sounds like an abusive douche, but his kids are still in mourning for him. if she were any kind of mother she would not be going on E! with the sordid details when the body’s hardly in the ground. at least wait until the kids have regained some kind of normal life.


  38. Wicki says:

    I do believe her. And you don’t have to like someone to believe they’ve been abused. Someone’s likability does not justify their abuse. What disturbs me is that the hospital did not make her husband leave the room while they questioned her about the origin of her injuries. It probably would not have helped, but sometimes that initial moment of separation will open someone up emotionally, and help an abuse victim express the truth. When I went to the emergency room of Roosevelt Hospital in NYC after tripping on stairs, my female boss took me because I could not reach my husband. They made her leave the room and said they were required to ask me in private if this injury could be the result of domestic abuse; apparently they thought my boss was my lover! We had a good laugh about that for weeks after, but I appreciated that they made her leave. If the hospital was “surprised” a 5 year old could cause that injury, while it may not have helped, they should have procedures in places to separate any potential domestic abuse victim from her partner in order to at least question her more thoroughly.

  39. Original Tiffany says:

    First off, Nancy O’Dell has jacked her face to hell and back, fillers for all my friends!
    As a former medical worker, I am appalled at the lack of compassion here. She was beaten by her husband, she couldn’t tell why because he was sitting there next to her, as in, I will beat your ass to death if you say anything. Those pics are real, they have every hallmark of her zygomatic arch being blown out. Like when you get hit in the eye with a baseball. I don’t care what her real name is or what illegal crap he did. She was still getting beaten at home.
    I saw a woman get the crap beat out of her against a car and then thrown inside and get slammed into the window when I was 16 at my first job and called the police. It was horrifying. My BF was beaten and I tried to help her leave multiple times, and he always found her and she’d get sucked back in because it messes your brain up when the person you think you love beats you.
    After watching the first year of the show, I always thought it was weird that he was so controlling, made her leave parties, would leave her at parties, act strangely, etc. I can see why now.

  40. Kim says:

    I believe he was abusive but not to the extent she says. I think he was verbally abusive but not physically. Which is still awful. Im not saying he is innocent but Im not saying he is guilty. I, as a past abuse victim would need WAY more proof. Alot of what she says doesnt ring true to an abuser or a victim. I feel she is milking this and that is sickening!

    Photos can easily be manufactured, photoshopped, etc. And to date that is her ONLY evidence.

    What really bothers me about this whole thing is
    I dont know an abuse victim out there who would SELL their abuse photos or story to national tv. Especially with a child involved and the fact that all this is coming out after his death is very suspicious.

    She has been a proven liar on many ocassions. I dont remember Russell being caught lying but she certainly has been.

    I dont think we can throw a dead man under the bus without more proof.

  41. 4Real says:

    I believe her and I also believe she is an ignorant bytch that should have done something else besides BLAME HER DAUGHTER for his abuse to her eye and set a better example as a MOTHER and got her and her little girl out of that situation. He’s dead now so what is the purpose to air this now and go on ET and talk about it?? SHE DISGUSTS ME AS A MOTHER AND A HUMAN BEING. I’ve been in an abusive relationship and I know its hard to just up and leave but she is a self absorbed vapid twit and just FOUL in every sense of the word.

  42. Callli Pygian says:

    There certainly are a lot of cruel posters here today.

    Regardless of how she is telling her story now, or the character flaws she is said to have, abusive relationships are complicated. It is the rare person who can walk away from his/her abuser. Sadly, income ,children, social perceptions/community are factors which tether people to their situations. Particularly influential is the dependency abusers create in the victim.

    I feel sorry for those so lacking in any kind of sympathy.

  43. the original bellaluna says:

    One more time for the slow kids: Men do not just walk up to you after a second or third date and bash you in the face!

    It is a long, drawn out process, involving establishing control over you, isolating you from friends and family, emotionally and psychologically abusing you, until you’re “primed” for the physical abuse to start.

    It is very easy to say “Well, if a man hit me, I’d leave.” It is also very telling, as it indicates you’ve never been in that situation.

    Leaving becomes very complicated when you have children, little-to-no education, and no source of income (mind you, control is the name of the game for abusers). It’s also DAMN HARD when the abuser says “If you leave, I will KILL you!”

    See, you’ve already been beaten and battered, so a death threat is ALWAYS taken as credible. Particularly when you don’t want your child/ren raised by the man who killed you.

    I did not watch ET or the clip, nor will I. I’ve lived it.

    (And no, I don’t think I would ever EVER give a televised interview about my abuse.)

  44. Home Fancy says:

    It’s a shame she was soooo terrified of him that she couldn’t throw her daughter $50k birthday parties while he looked on disapprovingly, or stay at parties long after her husband left– wait a minute…

    And she hated violence so much. Going “Oklahoma on one’s ass” must mean to give hugs, right?

    This woman is an EXPERT scammer. It’s not that I’m “blaming the victim”. Did all of her victims deserve to be scammed by her?

  45. the original bellaluna says:

    Original Tiffany & Callli Pygian – Yes! Compassion and sympathy. Or even empathy.

    It doesn’t matter what kind of person Taylor is (and judging from what I’ve read/seen, it’s not a very nice one) but, as human beings, it shouldn’t be hard to at least empathise with her. I don’t have to “like” someone to feel badly for them.

    I know there are women out there who claim abuse to try to leverage their divorce settlement or child custody or visitation or WHATEVER their way, and they are DESPICABLE. And I truly hope they get what’s coming to them, in the karmic sense of the phrase.


  46. Seal Team 6 says:

    @Original Bella

    Thanks for trying to educate. I decided to bail on these DV threads, because so many of the posts are despicable to me.

  47. Lindsay says:

    I watched the entire thing and I believe her. I was skeptical going on, but I do believe her now. How horrible.

  48. Sara says:

    I believe her and I feel for her.

    I do think it’s terrible she was involved in domestic violence charities her first season of the real housewives. That’s not really right, living with an abuser, but I understand how it’s hard to leave.

  49. wunderkindt says:

    Taylor wants more $$$ and Russell cant tell his side of things!

    Listen to her interview: Taylor said she also “hit something”. (Maybe she hit Russell!)It wouldnt come as a surprise if they were BOTH abusers.

    Notice that there are no tears when she ‘cries’. . . This is just more bad acting from Taylor.

  50. deb says:

    all of you saying well she has lied in the past…if this happened to your daughter or your sister your tune would change. if you were a grown woman with a normal sexual history and you were brutally raped and attacked would that not count because you had slept with other men in the past? if you were a scummy business man who regularly jacked up bills of customers and someone burned your house down as payback, should that count because, hey, you had it coming. having survived an abusive relationship. one where i didn’t have him arrested on more than once because i loved him and he always made me think i deserved it i think we should give her a break. he left her massively in debt and the woman is just speaking out and making money to raise her daughter. keeping quiet to protect him just continues the violence. i know that for a fact. let her be a fake, let her be a flake. if her honesty about this can help one woman escape an abusive marriage or relationship, more power to her.

  51. Wresa says:

    Glad there is at least some sanity in this thread today. “Photos can be doctored” blah, blah what nonsense. Gee, I wonder why women don’t admit to being abused? Maybe its the same reason they don’t admit to rape. Sad that women can’t turn to one another for support for issues like DV and rape. Nasty.

  52. pebbles says:


  53. RobN says:

    @Wresa, if your theory is that women should always provide other women with unquestioning support every time they claim rape or abuse, then you’re incredibly naive. Lots of women are abused, lots of women lie about it. Each case is an individual situation and to state that women should support all of them based simply on having the same DNA and without regard to the facts of an individual situation is ridiculous.

    Did Russel hit her? Probably. Were they both miserable people who abused others? It seems so. Does it seem odd that Russell would ok appearing on a tv show if he spent much of his time beating his wife? Yeah, kinda.

    I’m very happy to support the single mom who needs to get out of a situation. I’m not as inclined to worry about somebody who is exploiting the situation for financial gain.

  54. Lee says:

    Drop her from the show to give both she and her children time to heal….this is absolutely nuts and shows the depths that these shows stoop to.

  55. olcranky says:

    @mln76 – saying that you don’t believe one particular woman’s story doesn’t not mean you think every woman is making things up. As a woman, this mindset that any women who ever says she was abused in any way, regardless of the circumstances, is always telling the unassailable truth and that the accused are are without a doubt abusers or rapists is the worst thing. Women do lie about these accusations and then men who are wrongly accused in the cases where women lie are destroyed by them and still dogged by rape/abuse accusations even when the story is proven to be wrong. This women are victims culture has got to stop and the rush to support any woman who makes a claim and attack the man ends damages real victims.

  56. the original bellaluna says:

    Seal Team, I think I’ll join you. Too bad there’s no Linnocent post – we could jump in the vodka vat! 😉

    RobN – I just don’t understand why a woman’s personality gets judged every time she claims abuse. Why is judging a woman’s character and past always the first reaction to abuse claims? And wtf does her personality have to do with him beating her? Either there was abuse, or there wasn’t. C’mon, the photos are real. She was beaten. So why are people, most stikingly-other women, the first to judge whether or not it really took place?

    What she does with the photos afterward is irrelevant to me. You can say you disagree with her selling the photos without assuming her shitty past means the entire claim is contrived, photos and all.

    You should never counterclaim that someone wasn’t abused because at the end of the day, really, what do you know about another woman’s marriage, what goes on behind closed doors?

    Sorry for being so intense, RobN! I guess I will avoid these heated threads from here on. 🙂

    She should be in counseling not on entertainment spewing away. I don’t doubt she was abused but whether you are famous or not you should get help. Physical abuse not only hurts you physically but mentally as well.

    I believe she was abused and I think it’s terrible.

    But I for the life me of don’t understand why this is all being revealed on “Entertainment Tonight.” Entertainment? Hardly.

    Sorry, but abuse or not, I find it absolutely disgusting and tacky to be talking about this within weeks of him dying. Its like she is milking his suicide for her own gain. Her actions in speaking about this, AND now talking about finding his body, is just… No other words. He is no longer here to defend himself. And whilst I don’t doubt he abused her, why talk about it *now*? Its sick, and she is turning the suicide of another human being into a means for attention for herself. She has no class or decency. She disgusts me to be so heartless and so opportunistic. Quite frankly, I think they deserved each other.

    I believe her. No woman should ever be hit.

    But I still don’t like her.
