According to RadarOnline, Real Housewives of Beverly HillsTaylor Armstrong has inked a tell-all book deal, which will delve into her life as an abuse victim and include graphic photos of abuse she allegedly received at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong.

It’s been less than a month since Taylor’s husband Russell committed suicide. One source is claiming Taylor is using Russell’s death to amp up her own bank account. While that’s a pretty salacious claim, it doesn’t really come as a surprise, since shortly after Russell’s death the Armstrongs’ serious financial problems became very public information.

The insider told RadarOnline, “Taylor’s acting like she’s not trying to bank off Russell’s suicide, but by including photos of her injuries after he allegedly beat her, that’s exactly what she’ll be doing.”

While the book will include Taylor’s personal experiences, the insider says she also “wants to spotlight other celebrities who have been involved in domestic abuse situations.”

Taylor hopes to have the book on shelves November. But until she receives what will probably be a hefty book advance, the source claims cash-strapped Taylor has turned to her well-off Housewives to keep her afloat.
