Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta left NeNe Leakes and myself completely speechless. I dare say that was the oddest, craziest and most bizarre fight in Housewives history! Poor South Africa didn’t deserve this. Also, for self-proclaimed etiquette expert Marlo it’s a long way to the top if you want to be a socialite!
Arriving in South Africa the ladies brought the wild to the safari. Chalk it up to jet lag if you will. Lord the one liners in this episode are PRICELESS! After some super annoying Blair Witch Project footage of the women flying coach with no make up, they land in the airport, where much drama with the luggage ensues.
Apparently no one with the title “Housewives of Atlanta” can go on a ten-day trip with less than ten bags, so everyone is pushing these ENORMOUS luggage carts around the airport. Louis Vuitton is probably issuing a cease and desist letter right about now – either that or filing a defamation of character suit after this episode.

Viewers will see Adrienne Maloof (whose chef Bernie recently went for Lisa’s jugular in a Facebook rant) “attack” her former neighbor in a high-dollar, be-Botoxed form of turf wars! “Adrienne has it out for Lisa,” an insider reveals to OK!. “Adrienne just wants to be number one,” and she is allegedly willing to do anything to oust LVP from her position atop the RHOBH throne!
“Adrienne called all the girls together, they planned to go after her,” the source explains, adding that Adrienne’s jealousy is the reason for her malice. “Adrienne is going to open a restaurant, just like Lisa. She also got a little dog like Lisa and named it Jackpot and opened a twitter account for the dog, just like Lisa.”
So what is prompting Adrienne’s venomous attitude towards her former friend? I mean, this can’t all be because of a Maloof Hoof comment and a Bachelorette Party not held at The Palms! Perhaps next season’s storyline! “So far Lisa, Kyle [Richards] and Adrienne have all been renewed by Bravo,” the insider revealed to OK!.
Lisa has hinted at the animosity from Adrienne in a recent appearance on WWHL and admitted she was glad to have new neighbors! In a recent sit-down with NBCUniversal Direct, Lisa discussed her feelings on the reunion. “I find it really difficult. It’s quite hard when you go through a show and you’re kind of in your own world, which I was very much, I was having fun and working really hard… But, when you see things aired and you see things being said, it’s kind of upsetting. So, I felt I was in defense mode for a lot of it.”
Kyle, who apparently spent the reunion throwing her former friend under the bus, also cops to having trouble dealing with the aftermath. “It’s really like mental torture sitting there with all the women,” Kyle described.
“We’ve put our arguments to rest a few months ago and then, all of a sudden, to rehash everything is very painful. If you’re very honest, and people are highly sensitive, it leads to an argument again.” And that, my friends, is why you don’t go on a reality show with your friends! If there is one thing that guarantees a friendship to fall apart it’s participating in a show that requires you to talk crap about your friends to the viewing public.
Also on the reunion, Kim Richards will be making a cameo via an interview with Andy Cohen to give some insight into what led her to enter rehab. During the sit-down, Kim informs fans that she is an “alcoholic.” Per the usual, discussing her sister’s situation is Kyle, who shares some feelings behind Kim’s decision to get help. “It wasn’t about the Housewives,” Kyle tells Good Morning America. “I think it was just an accumulation of things.”
“It was our family and sitting down, and she really felt it was time,” Kyle explains. “I have to give her credit for making that decision on her own.” Kyle is relieved that Kim was able to admit to fans and to Bravo about her addictions by declaring she is an alcoholic. “I’m proud to hear her say that,” Kyle said. “I’m proud of her. I know that’s the biggest step in recovery, to admit that.”
And Kim’s family is very happy she sought help. “We were always proud when one of us achieved something so, right now, for Kathy, Kim and me, we’re all just very happy and proud of her,” Kyle relayed.
“There were things going on that the audience wasn’t aware of,” Kyle said of the excoriating arguments viewers have witnessed between the sisters. “I had had a lot of pain and built up anger and frustration towards her, and obviously she did towards me too. It was a vicious cycle.”
To help Kim continue with her path to recovery, Kyle advised her sister against watching footage from this season. “I told her [Kim], ‘I don’t know if you want to watch the show all the time,’ because I don’t want her to look back and beat herself up. I really want her just to stay positive and move forward.”
“It was very difficult to have people dissect and analyze your relationship thinking they know you from a TV show when it’s been a long time in the making,” Kyle confesses, but the sisters are working towards a more positive relationship.
“I don’t think you can love anyone like a sister or fight with anyone like a sister,” Kyle added. “My sisters – Kathy [Hilton], Kim and myself – we’re all very close.”
Also, refuting rumors that she is definitely on board for a third season of the tumultuous show, Kyle again claims she “absolutely” regrets signing on and isn’t sure if she wants to return. Kim is also allegedly uncertain if she wants to come back — or if Bravo even wants her! Perhaps with Kyle’s life-based sitcom in the works she doesn’t need reality TV to chronicle her every move!
Finally, tonight marks the first part of the epic reunion which will cover suicide, domestic abuse and the other run of the mill Housewives problems, including bitchery, backstabbing as well as she-said/she-said nonsense. A preview clip is below!

Remember the days when people called it quits on their friendship by de-friending each other on Facebook? Yeah, that’s like so 2010.
Now, apparently the thing to do when you want to no longer be friends is tweet to the world about how much your former bestie sucks, followed by going to every media outlet that will take you and tell them how much you dislike said ex-bestie.
Another good way to end a friendship — get in a public fight with someone your ex-friend’s employ while attending the same event as said ex-friend. Aaahhh… 2012, making friendship ending bigger and more public than ever! Prime examples of the new way of de-friending? Jennifer Williams and Evelyn Lozada of Basketball Wives, Original Flavor.
TMZ is reporting that over the weekend Jennifer apparently had nothing better to do than hang out in the VIP suite at Gulf Stream Race Track in Hallandale, FL where she got into an altercation with Evelyn’s assistant Nia Crooks, who also remains friends with Jen.
Also at the event — Evelyn, herself! Apparently, in the midst of having a good time Evelyn Nia felt the need to call Jennifer out for being “too big for her britches,” a sentiment that is allegedly echoed by all Jennifer’s co-stars (aka Evelyn).
Since no one on the Basketball Wives payroll (save for Shaunie O’Neal) can remain composed in the midst of an argument, Jennifer and Nia got in each others’ faces and Nia slapped Jen!
Why were the ladies at a VIP event in the first place? For filming purposes. The producers broke up the altercation because really, that’s pretty much all they do, and restrained Evelyn from jumping on Jennifer. She just wanted to protect Nia, of course!
The police were called — because it’s sooo very VIP to call the police in the middle of event — and their report states Jennifer describes being “struck by Crooks with an open hand to the left side of her face,” while Jennifer called it “intentional.”
The reporting officer claims he saw no injuries on either woman and advised Jen that she could file a misdemeanor complaint if she was so inclined. The officer also reported that he believes the entire incident was captured on film. Lucky us!
Moving along, Evelyn is still complaining to the media about Jen despite being publicly chastised by her fiance Ochocinco for such immature behavior. Speaking to The Insider, Evelyn again explains what made her take to Twitter to put Jen on blast and reiterates that their friendship is done as done could be. Officially.
“My friendship with her is done,” Evelyn declares. “I was thinking how could I have been friends with this person who turned out to be so ugly inside.”
“Everyone knows Jennifer is bougie. Her mixed with a little bit of fame can really turn people off. She thinks she’s bigger than life right now.”
According to Evelyn the two, who have been friends for twelve years, began to have issues once she got engaged to Chad. “It started when it was all over the web that he had proposed. My thing is this: if you were proposed to, or you were with whomever, no matter what my opinion is, I’m still going to be like ‘hey girl if you’re happy, I’m there. Let me see the ring.’ She never asked to see my ring, she NEVER congratulated me. She could have gave a sh*t.”
Something also happened during the midst of filming (doesn’t it always) that was the last straw. “She did something publicly that pissed me off. I can’t say, because the season isn’t out yet, but let’s just say she did something else publicly that really pissed me off.”
Evelyn claims Jennifer has made it a full-time job talking to the media about her and that’s another reason their rift just can’t be mended. “If you go back and you search any interviews I’ve done, I don’t ever really discuss the other ladies,” Evelyn claims. Is she sure about that statement?
“Once I’m done with the show, I’m done with the show. But Jennifer, she’s agreed to do every interview, she’s constantly talking, talking, talking. And that’s my issue. Last season so many radio stations wanted to talk to me. And I never talked about her. But she can’t help herself. I had loyalty towards her. But she agrees to do these things. And I was quiet until yesterday. I finally exploded,” Evelyn reveals.
Jen accusing Evelyn of being jealous of her friendship with the very rich Ms. NeNe Leakes is what made Evelyn pick the iPhone and start a-Tweeting. “I felt like I needed to address it,” Evelyn explains. “And that’s when I said what I said on twitter. Why are you doing an interview when you’re lying?”
“We’re two months into filming and she KNOWS what the issue is. So why would you go on an interview and say my issue is with you being friends with NeNe? That’s what pissed me off. I’m cool with NeNe!,” Evelyn insists.
“Don’t make it seem like I’m hating on your friendship with other women, because I could care less! Jennifer went on vacation with a close friend of mine. I don’t care who you hang out with. I ended up calling NeNe and let her know ‘I don’t have an issue with you.’ Stop putting people into this. That baffled me. I don’t know what her angle is.”
Oh, and if you’re wondering about Evelyn’s accusation that Jen wears color contacts, Eveyln is standing by it! “Jennifer will only take those things out when she goes to sleep. In ten years I have rarely seen her without contacts,” Evelyn laughs.
Well, I eagerly anticipate Jen’s response interview! You know it’s coming! And finally, Jen is now backtracking on her original comments which set Evelyn off! Days after telling Sister 2 Sister that Evelyn was jealous of her friendship with Nene, the blog removed the article and posted a retraction claiming the conversation with Jen was supposed to be off the record and not for an interview. Uh uh.
And finally, today VH1 released the official cast photo for the new season! The above photo also features the two new castmembers — Kesha Ni’cole Nicholsand Kenya Bell.

DO EVELYN AND JENNIFER NEED TO STOP TALKING ABOUT EACH OTHER ALREADY? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON: EVELYN OR JEN’S?
While Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is coming to an end, the off-screen drama is just beginning for Taylor Armstrong. Just days after a report that Bravo may be looking to give Taylor the axe, citing she is a liability, comes a report claiming Bravo and Taylor’s co-tarts fear they may be dragged into her courtroom drama!
Taylor is the recipient of a $1.5M lawsuit filed by MMRGlobal alleging that she and late husband Russell Armstrong participated in investor fraud and failed to uphold their end of a settlement agreement. Taylor heads to court July 11, 2012.
According to The Huffington Post, Bravo and some of her co-tarts are concerned about “becoming party to the the litigation” and being forced to participate in the court battle. Now that’s some Watch What Happens Live I want to see! What on earth would Adrienne Maloof wear to court? Gold extensions? Ruffles?
Just a little background information: MMRGlobal filed the suit against Taylor and Russell for breach-of-contract claiming he failed to follow the stipulations of a previously reached settlement deal. Russell was the largest shareholder of the then privately held company and was discovered misappropriating investor funds. He was removed from the board and settled with the company for $250,000. Taylor was also forced to sign a settlement agreement since she was found to be an equally involved party in allegedly scheming against investors and diverting shares of the company.
Under the terms of the settlement agreement the Armstrongs were required to identify anyone Russell sold MMRGlobal shares to; however he failed to do so and was subsequently sued by the company. Russell committed suicide shortly after being served with the suit. One of the chief concerns in the lawsuit is the alleged hiding of missing investor monies in an off-shore Cook Island account known as the Taylor Family Trust. Previous investigation revealed Taylor had made several deposits into the account over the years. Much of the money the Armstrongs were accused of misappropriating remains unaccounted for.
Taylor’s defense against the MMRGlobal suit is said to be that she was forced to participate in Russell’s dealings under duress, or, in other words he was abusive towards her and she feared for her safety and that of their daughter. Is it a coincidence that her new memoir, which chronicles the alleged abuse she faced at the hands of her now deceased husband, is hitting shelves months before she heads to trial?
“Where are the millions of dollars that flowed through their bank accounts and pockets? We have no reason to believe that Russell was broke or that Taylor is a victim of Russell without the ability to pay damages to MMR,” asserts MMRGlobal CEO Bob Lorsch.
As for how Taylor’s various legal troubles could involve the network, Bravo employees may have to testify about the network’s financial arrangements with the couple (such as how in the hell she got $6ok to throw a birthday party!) or how much they were earning to participate in the show. As well as if during the course of filming they observed the Armstrongs exhibit any behavior that could be pertinent in case. Bravo, of course, doesn’t want to be seen as responsible for or knowledgeable about any of the Armstrong’s potentially shady business dealings.
In response to the latest legal drama surrounding Lady Armstrong, the NY Daily News is seconding claims that Taylor’s days at Bravo are numbered, mentioning the recent litigation against her as one of the major reasons Bravo is seeking to end her contract.
“At this point, nobody on the Beverly Hills cast is safe,” a source describes, adding that Taylor and Kim Richards are the top picks to get pink slipped. And it seems Bravo has reached the end of their ropes which scheming, lying frauds trying to infiltrate the Housewives (ahem… Marlo Hampton). NYDN recently got their hands on a 51-page questionnaire the network has been passing out to potential new RHOBH co-tarts.
Among the information Bravo wants to know: “Have you ever been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor?” and “Have you ever had a restraining order issued against you?” Oh, they also want to know if said person plans to ruin the network’s reputation anymore than they plan to ruin said person, asking if candidates would do “anything that would cause the program producers and/or the cable network and affiliates any embarrassment or monetary loss?”
“She would made a great addition to the cast,” an insider claims. “She is now single and free and doesn’t ever have to worry about earning another dollar in her life, so she can focus on what makes the show so much fun: herself.” I fail to see how she has any relationship to these ladies, given that she doesn’t even live in Beverly Hills, but apparently the network is interested in what she could bring to the table.
Also seen as a potential new addition, Lisa Gastineau, who previously stared on E!’s short-lived reality show Gastineau Girls alongside her daughter Brittny Gastineau, a close friend of Kim Kardashian‘s.
“Lisa is the opposite of Vanessa,” the insider said. “She is the example of how not to get divorces. She has a wonderful life but works very hard to pay her bills and would love to find love again.” Lisa was previously married to NFL player Mark Gastineau and has been linked to such winners as Sylvester Stallone and John Gotti. Once again, I fail to see how she has any relationship to the current ladies. A photo of Lisa is below!
Moving right along to other possible Bravo fraudsters, days after Brandi Glanville kissed and told during a WWHL appearance that she had a fling with A-List actor Gerard Butler, the actor is denying any such affiliation! When TMZ caught up with Gerard and asked him what he had to say about the reality star rating his lovemaking skills as an 11 out of 10, Gerald simply responded: “Who’s Brandi Glanville?”
After taking a ton of heat on the Twitter and being accused of making up her Gerard fling, Brandi is firing back telling RumorFix she was totally telling the truth about her hook up!
Claiming Gerard admitted to pretending he didn’t know who she is, Brandi explains, “He called me last night and told me he said it. He is upset because he is a private person. I don’t lie so I don’t really care.” The always classy Brandi followed up by Tweeting, “I don’t lie. He can suck it.” I think he may have already…

After six seasons (and one on the way) of seeing their enhanced, tanned, Botoxed faces you would think we know all there is to know about the Real Housewives of Orange County. Apparently not! I guess they have gotten a newbie or two…
E! News recently did a little sit down with the first ladies of Bravo to dish about the show as the gals gear up for the new season, and they are giving us some new dirt on what’s to come.
First up, the ladies talk new arrival Heather Dubrow. They weren’t readily accepting of her entry into the club! “When I first met her I actually thought she was a little pretentious. I actually used the exact words that ‘I think she had a stick up her ass,’” Gretchen Rossi confesses.
“I was a little bit worried that she wasn’t going to fit in with the group, because she was so nice, so classy and yet so elegant. And with the girls on the show, we don’t always roll like that,” Tamra Barney laughs. Can I just say that is the most obvious statement that has ever come out of Bathtub Porn Tamra’s mouth!
Heather admits things got off to a rocky start with some of the ladies, “I would say out of everyone Alexis [Bellino]and I have had some friction, [but] I was pleasantly surprised how well we all got along.”
Gretchen also warns us that some serious tension arrives between her and matriarch Vicki Gunvalson over their mens’ respective child support issues. If you recall, it came out last year that Vicki’s new beau, Brooks Ayers, also had his own child support issues. In fact, he was once arrested for failure to pay over $40,000 in child support.
“Vicki had a lot to say about Slade [Smiley] and about his child support issues… I just feel like she was being a hypocrite — [her new boyfriend] had a similar situation as Slade yet she was still very judgmental towards Slade.” Yes, this show has TWO men with child support drama.
Speaking of Vicki’s man dramas, this season will tackle Vicki and Donn Gunvalson‘s impending divorce. “I don’t know if the show had anything to do with the collapse of [Vicki's] marriage,” Tamra reveals, “I know that it puts strain on your relationship, no doubt.”
“If the relationship is struggling, I think that the cameras might hone in on issues that you already have. The cameras don’t lie,” Gretchen added.
Oh, in case you hadn’t noticed, Tamra and Gretchen are doing this interview together, and there have been no reported screaming matches. The two have officially patched things up and now consider each other friends. Finally — after three seasons of petulance. “I knew that the only way to move forward was just to forgive and ask for forgiveness. It has become a very true and authentic friendship,” Gretchen shares.
“It was time to build a bridge and get over it. In the process of doing that we realized we really like each other,” Tamra readily admits. Good for you girls, bring the fun back!
The ladies also talked their best beauty tips and sum it up thusly as — GTD. Gym, Tan, Doctor. Speaking of doctor, Tamra discussed her recent downsizing. The mama of four, who will be shown getting the procedure done during the season finally wanted a classier look. Hopefully her behavior will follow suit!
“It’s been one of the best things I have ever done in my life,” Tamra gushes. “I feel a lot more confident without my implants. [With my implants] I felt like [my chest] was the first thing everybody looked at.” Tamra, who is 5’4, was previously sporting 34 DD’s. Eeks.
ARE YOU SURPRISED OR RELIEVED TAMRA AND GRETCHEN ARE FINALLY FRIENDS? DO YOU THINK IT WILL LAST? DO YOU THINK HEATHER WILL BE A GOOD ADDITION TO THE CAST?
Yesterday’s Project Runway All Stars challenge mixed two of my favorite things of all time: food and fashion! Woo hoo! Sadly all the results were pretty yuck. The challenge was a little convoluted. The designers had to make an outfit inspired by the colors and flavors of gelato that made an extravagant fashion statement worthy of a red carpet — all within six hours. It would take me that long to pick a gelato!
Angela meets the designers on the runway accompanied by a gelato cart and everyone picks a flavor using the high school gym class method. Their look must use the color of the gelato as well as derive inspiration from the flavor. Then, Diane Von Furstenburg, Queen of International Ready To Wear (according to Austin Scarlet), takes the runway. Diane adds new, discombobulated element to the challenge; their look must also make a fabulous and innovative fashion moment. Inspired by ice cream flavors. In SIX HOURS!

Jenelle Evans‘ contentious behavior has caused some of the most shocking moments on Teen Mom 2. Her out of control temper, struggles with substance abuse and poor decision-making culminated in multiple arrests and led her to give up custody of her son, but the devastating events haven’t slowed Jenelle’s naughty streak down!
Jenelle is speaking out about what led to her most recent string of arrests and no surprise, she is taking little to no accountability for her actions! “I actually am confused about the arrest from last week,” Jenelle explains to E!. “I haven’t contacted Hannah [Inman] or[James] Duffy in a month, and I was the first to press charges, so I think they are trying to charge me with things out of spite.”
Hannah initially contacted the police about Jenelle’s allegedly harassing behavior and that led to her first arrest this January. “Hannah does not own a cell phone either so there’s no way I could of harassed her with phone calls,” Jenelle reveals.
“I never threatened Hannah,” Jenelle insists. “I guess she claims I’m a threat to her, which makes me laugh, because I moved 45 minutes away from her three weeks ago to get away from the drama and be closer to school.”
Jenelle was arrested a second time in less than a week, this time for a Domestic Violence Protection Order Violation. According to Duffy, the reason for that arrest was Jenelle’s refusal to remove a naked photo of Hannah from her Facebook wall. This coming from the same man who released scandalous photos of Jenelle all over the Internet!
“I didn’t post any naked picture of Hannah. I have four admins on my Facebook fanpage. One of them must of posted it. I didn’t even know it was posted. After I got arrested, I searched for it and deleted it,” Jenelle adamantly declares. “I really don’t understand why any of these charges are taken out against me.” Jenelle is due back in court February 6th.
Firing back, Jenelle accuses Duffy of controlling Hannah and bullying her! “Duffy is using Hannah to his advantage, I believe. He is forcing her to do this. It’s a known fact, or else she will be on the streets.”
“Duffy is also jealous of my manager and mad that Hannah won’t give it up to him,” Jenelle adds. “This is very disturbing to me, because she is only 19 and he is 46. I wish she would see how dangerous he is and move out.”
Jenelle claims her distressing legal situation has led her to seek psychiatric help. “Now I have to go back to the psychiatrist because I feel like I’m about to have a nervous breakdown. It’s constant harassment against me, having me arrested for petty things. That’s why my probation officer hasn’t violated me for probation. She knows it’s not my fault.”
“I’m hanging on to everything that’s happening this past month,” Jenelle reveals. “I almost reached my breaking point, but went to see my psychiatrist to get back on my medication to help with this depression and anxiety Duffy and Hannah caused. Everything always works out in the end though.”
While Jenelle has been spending time in the care of mental health professionals, the troubled reality star was apparently diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder. Jenelle took to Twitter to defend her actions from Tuesday night’s explosive episode, featuring her diabolical fighting with her ex-roommate, Tori. Jenelle has some serious ex-roomie drama!
In response to fans calling her “seriously psychotic,” Jenelle tweeted, “”bi polar disorder sweetheart.” Jenelle reassured fans that she is alright now, “I’m on my medication now and my life has change tremendously.” Well, errrr… I guess you could say things have changed for Jenelle… On the upside, Jenelle seems to be focusing on her classes and hopefully staying away from the drama.
Today, Bravo released the first previews for the reunion which will not only be dramatic, but will also be in three parts. While Kim was unable to attend the reunion taping, due to her recent stint in rehab, she did manage to do a sit down interview with Andy Cohenduring which she finally admits her drinking problem.
The dramatic preview for the RHOBH 3-part reunion is below. Part I airs Monday, January 30 on Bravo at 9/8c. Part II airs Feb. 6, and Part III airs Feb. 13.
Kim’s substance abuse issues first came to light early last year after her sister Kyle Richards revealed her alcoholism during their big limo fight.
RadarOnline is reporting that Bravo is seeing the light, listening to the fans and possibly writing Lady Armstrong that severance check!
“Taylor is absolutely freaked out at the possibility of not returning for a third season,” a source reveals. “Even though there has been a ratings bump this season because of the suicide, Taylor knows the criticism she has endured because of the tragedy. Taylor needs this job, she doesn’t have any other source of income, period.”
“She is fearful that producers of the show are going to cut her because she is seen as a liability to the show.” In light of the recent drama surrounding Taylor she may have a point. Additionally, Bravo structured the entire second season of RHOBH around her storyline to great fan dissatisfaction.
Taylor is defending herself against the recent rumors of being fired. “It’s not true,” she told RumorFix. “We have not even been picked up for season three.” While appearing on the Today Show on Tuesday, Andy Cohen announced there will be no cast changes and Bravo has made no decisions about season three. I find that hard to believe in light of the fan reactions to this season!
Finally, Taylor’s memoir Hiding From Reality is due in stores next month and I know y’all are waiting with bated breath to hear what she has to say; so you’re in luck! In order to drum up sales and excitement for the tell-all, Us Weekly is releasing some of the more gory excerpts.
Among her shocking allegations, she insists Russell was going to force her to abort her baby if it wasn’t a girl! “Russell wanted to keep the baby only if it was a girl. Because he already had two boys. At five weeks I took a blood test and mailed in the sample to learn the gender, and fate, of our baby.”
Taylor claims Russell controlled every aspect of her life and she constantly lived in fear of being recorded. “I always assumed I was being recorded in the car and at home,” Taylor’s book reads. “I was always careful to make sure the content of my conversations was very clear.”
The reality star insists her attempts to fight back made matters worse and that Russell’s abuse was calculated. “He would grab my hair and bang my head against the side of the car between the two door. Or against the glass of the passenger window while he was driving, because it made his point to me but didn’t leave a visible mark.”
Asserting that Russell believed he would kill her, Taylor claims he blamed her for his violent outbursts. “Don’t ever do that again because I almost killed you,” Russell reportedly told Taylor. “One of these days I’m afraid I’m going to kill you.”
Taylor realized she needed to leave Russell after his abuse caused her a dislocated cornea that could have left permanent danger. “Hearing that I was in danger of having a lifelong deformity from something that Russell had done to me was enough to finally snap me out of the spell Russell had over me,” she writes. “When my assistant and I got home from my doctor’s appointment, I told her to pack a bag for Kennedy.”
Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Within hits stores February 7th — just after RHOBH finishes airing!
