  • 'Real Housewives' star Taylor Armstrong beaten in hours preceding husband's suicide, report says

    Just hours before Russell Armstrong hanged himself, he beat his wife, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong, so badly that she was left “terrified and sobbing,” a new report claims.

    RadarOnline.com cites a Star magazine story stating that after the vicious beating at the hands of her husband, a “distraught” Taylor reached out to two friends for help, sobbing “Russell hit me.”

    “Taylor was crying hysterically and told me Russell punched her in the face,” a friend of the “Real Housewives” star told Star magazine. “She was so terrified.”

    According to Star, the couples’ sinking financial portfolio led to the fight. On August 14, Armstrong allegedly asked her husband about the true state of their finances, which sent him into a rage.

    “She wanted answers, and I guess kept pushing the issue,” the friend explains. “At that point, Russell snapped and punched her in the face.”

    A private memorial service will be held for Armstrong on Wednesday. He was 47.
