Over the summer reports surfaced that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong was hospitalized as a result of the alleged abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband, Russell, who tragically committed suicide in August. Although photos were released, some doubted whether the wounds were real. In Season 2, Episode 19, Taylor will show visible signs of violence: a bruised face.
The episode, which is currently available for purchase on iTunes, takes place at the grand opening of Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR Lounge in West Hollywood. Lisa notices under Taylor’s makeup, a bruise is visible. Taylor alleges that her injuries were from Russell, and Lisa asks if that’s what took her to leave her husband. “Unfortunately,” responds Taylor.
