Two weeks after filing for divorce, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong is now alleging husband Russell Armstrong abused her both verbally and physically.

Taylor, 40, makes the shocking revelations in an all new interview with PEOPLE magazine. While all that talk about an amicable split came about after Taylor filed for divorce following six years of marriage, she is now telling a darker tale of her relationship’s demise.

“I felt like I was dying inside,” she says. “Now, there’s some sense of peace.” Taylor claims Russell was both verbally and physically abusive, with name-calling, hair pulling, and shoving being a staple of their marriage. She also alleges Russell threw things at her when enraged. As a child of domestic abuse, Taylor was an advocate for battered women, and her efforts were highlighted on the first season.

Taylor reveals, “I’m mad at myself for tolerating things I should not have tolerated from the first moment. Allowing this to happen in my own relationship was something I felt very ashamed of.”

After several months of counseling, Taylor realized she needed a better environment for the couple’s five-year-old daughter Kennedy and decided to end the marriage, adding the decision was a difficult one. “When I knew the filing had gone through, I just started to cry,” she says. “We tried hard to fix our marriage, but it wasn’t healthy.”

For his part, Russell, 47, admits, “Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit.” Russell, however, denies ever pulling his wife’s hair.

The viewers of the reality hit will watch the couple’s marriage implode on the upcoming season which premieres September 5 on Bravo.

A week after he was reported to be in talks to join Dancing With The Stars, TMZ is now confirming Rob Kardashian is officially signed on!

Multiple sources confirm to TMZ that Rob, 24, is officially on board despite concerns about the DWTS schedule conflicting with his older sister Kim Kardashian‘s big mediawhore wedding in August.

Rob has reportedly signed the dotted line for the new season which will premiere September 19. Rob won’t be the first Kardashian to compete on the show as Kimmie made it all the way to week 3 back in 2008.

Oddly enough, TMZ reported last week that the DWTS producers were working hard this season to get some real A-listers on the show, even changing their policy to a no minimum rehearsal requirement.

And it appears Jersey Shore’s Snooki might be a no go despite the report that she was also negotiating to appear on the show. Her manager issued a non-denial denial to the Rumor Fix simply stating “Not true” when asked about the DWTS rumors.

As for Rob, no word yet on what exactly makes him a “star.”

Big Brother 13′s Cassi Colvin found herself on the chopping block after the Veteran alliance, well mostly Rachel, decided she was a threat.

And perhaps they were right. Unlike most players who play the Big Brother game, Cassi was loyal to her alliance till the end, unwilling to tell the others what they wanted to hear and even refused to campaign against her partner Shelly to stay in the game. Not surprisingly, Cassi was evicted from the BB13 house last Thursday in an unanimous vote.

In a new interview with DigitalSpy, Cassi reveals if she really thinks Rachel is jealous of her, why she refused to campaign against Shelly (she’s not aware Shelly back stabbed the alliance) and reveals what she would have done differently. Excerpts from her interview below -

There was a lot of discussion about girls in the house being jealous of your looks. Do you think that’s what was really behind Rachel’s dislike for you?
“Honestly, that belief was brought to my attention several times and I was the last to give any credit to that being the case. I think Rachel’s biggest issue with me is that I am a girl [who's] comfortable in my own skin and happy with who I am on the inside when I don’t think she has found herself yet. Also, I think she was intimidated because she knew that I wouldn’t be her minion because of the Brenchal union or her experience in the game. I feel that I was the most independent newbie, the one least likely to let their promises of safety throw me off guard and make me easy to sway – I have my own mind.”

You said that you didn’t feel you could campaign against Shelly because you two had become so close. Do you feel that relationship was worth potentially giving up $500k?
“Shelly and I always said it was our worst nightmare to be put on the block together. We hoped to make it through the duos and golden key period intact. She was the only person in the house that my trust in never wavered with. Because I respect and adore her so much, I had nothing negative to say about her. Any speaking I did on my behalf after nominations was never to portray myself as a better option to keep in the house but only to remind people of what I had to offer in the game. I feel pretty confident that my pleas would have been to no avail because from a gameplay standpoint at this point in time, I am the bigger threat. I don’t think my campaigning or lack thereof affected my chance at the prize and I still left with my integrity and no regrets.”

If given another chance to play the game, would you have done anything differently?
“As cautious as I was from day one with what I said and who I said it to, I definitely could have been more tightlipped. I think a lot of the newbies recognized that I was ready to play from the start because I was so outspoken and honest. This made it easy for me to become the scapegoat for the things we were all feeling.”

The newbie alliance seemed pretty solid in the beginning but crumbled soon after, with two members flipping over to the other side in the first week. What do you think went wrong there?
“Although unspoken, the line was clearly drawn coming into the house with new versus old players and unfortunately rather than the newbies realizing that this was a golden opportunity to use our number advantage to our benefit, they cowered to intimidation because of the veterans’ experience in the game and relationship with one another outside of the house.”

You attempted to align yourself with the veterans after the first elimination. Is this something you always imagined you’d have to do at some point in the game or was going to the other side just a last-ditch effort to stay in the game?
“The veterans actually approached Shelly and I with the proposal of keeping one another safe. In my mind, it was never an alliance nor did I have any intention with aligning with the veterans as a whole. For me, it was simply a deal to keep Shelly and I safe for the time being, hence why I encouraged other newbies to put Brendon and Rachel up because they were the biggest threat in the game and it wasn’t an option for myself because my word is my word. But further on down the road, I would have been interested in aligning with Jeff and Jordan.”

A live eviction episode of Big Brother will air tonight on CBS at 9/8c during which host Julie Chen will reveal a new twist! As we reported last week, the eliminated HGs are being sequestered. When you add in Evel Dick’s early departure, it’s all but certain there will be a twist to bring back one of the evicted HGs.

Up for eviction tonight are Dominic and Adam. And thanks to Danielle’s shenanigans and all around bad game play, it’s all but certain Dominic will get the boot. Dominic is however not giving up just yet as he is trying to sway the newbie votes (Kalia, Shelly and Porsche) his way. He seems to have Kalia’s vote but will Shelly, who claims to be feeling very guilty for backstabbing her alliance, and Porsche vote for him to stay? We will find out tonight. Once again, here’s to hoping a newbie wins tonight’s HOH so there is a desperately needed shift of power in the house!

Well if you’re in the mood for some salacious Jersey Shore gossip, here’s your chance!

RumorFix is asserting Jersey Shore’s most-hated, Angelina Pivarnick, may have faked her pregnancy for attention, according to those “closest” to the reality star. Oh, dear…

CMT’s Sweet Home Alabama star Jeff Miranda, who once dated Angelina and appeared on Jersey Shore, comments: “The was no baby. She did it for publicity.” Ouch! Jeff continues: “People have told her that her time is up — she’s trying to keep her face in the press.”

Another source, who claims to be close to Angelina, further revealed: “I think she missed her period and started panicking thinking she was pregnant. Word got out. Then awhile later she got her period and she was stuck in a lie.” Nice friends you got there, Ang!

Angelina, who recently appeared on the Father Albert Show (what!?) to accuse the media and ex-finance Dave Kovacs of causing her miscarriage due to invasion of privacy and negligence, repeatedly declined RumorFix’s requests for an interview responding to the story.

Instead she took to her Twitter feed (where else?) to denounce the story: “Hmmmm guess I was never pregnantt!!!!@RumorFix @jeffmiranda. Gooooo fuck urselves!!!! http://twitpic.com/5wxuvl” Included in the Tweet is photographic “proof” in the form of a positive pregnancy test.

A photo of the positive test is below. Angelina further called out Jeff Miranda for his Jersey Shore aspirations, Tweeting: “I LOVE how ppl lie!!!!!! Hahahahahhaha. What a loser!!! Like he was ever even a jersey shore cast member!!! @jeffmiranda. Goooo fuck urself” No comment from alleged father Dave Kovacs – yet!

Do you think Angelina may have “faked” her pregnancy for publicity? Do you think Jeff Miranda was out of line to speak to the press about the situation?

A ton of Real Housewives of New Jersey news to report today so let’s begin with the 4th season of the hit show!

Yes, filming on the RHONJ season 4 has already began! In fact, it began weeks ago. This is pretty surprising as to my knowledge, Bravo has never filmed a new season of a Real Housewives series while the previous season was still on the air.

It is likely this is being done due to the extremely high ratings and the network doesn’t want to wait an entire year to push out a new season. There are also rumblings Bravo did this to capture Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial which was originally scheduled for mid July. As we reported, that trial has now been postponed to October 13. I am also hearing Bravo is planning to debut the new season this fall. Wowzers.

Meanwhile Perez Hilton recently reported the producers behind the show put out an ad looking for new housewives. I can however confirm all of the current five housewives have been filming so it’s likely Bravo is just looking to add an extra housewife to the mix.

In other news, after receiving backlash for the awful things her husband Joe Giudice said about Melissa Gorga on the most recent episode of the show, Teresa is now blaming editing for Joe’s actions claiming he wasn’t trashing Melissa. While the Gorgas visited the Giudices for Christmas, all seemed to be going well until Joe decided to unleash some not so nice words about Melissa who was nearby but couldn’t hear. Bravo captioned Joe’s words on screen and below is the transcript of Joe’s exact words -

  • “I don’t give a sh*t about her”
  • “She’s a friggin’ animal”
  • “They’re f*cking animals”
  • “Who the hell would want to be that friggin’ racoon face over there? She’s a witch”

In Teresa’s latest blog on Celebuzz, she claims Joe wasn’t talking about Melissa but rather one of Melissa’s sisters – Lysa Simpson – and that Bravo simply edited it to make it appear he was trashing Melissa. “At my Christmas Eve party, sitting in his own house with his own brother-in-law, Joe was talking about Lysa NOT Melissa,” wrote Teresa. But how can Joe be talking about Lysa when he used the words “over there” to describe the person he was trashing? Need more proof? Below is a screen shot from the episode.

Perhaps Melissa’s sister was lurking in the room somewhere in Teresa’s home and went undetected by everyone including Bravo’s cameras. Even more interesting are the number of negative comments on Teresa’s Celebuzz blog. As you all know, Bravo has a policy of not posting the very negative comments on the housewives’ blogs on the Bravotv website.

Also interesting is the fact that those “f*cking animals” are not the ones going on trial for bankruptcy fraud, being arrested for DUIs, or facing 10 years in prison.

And finally, the most recent episode of the RHONJ featuring the smackdown of Kim Granatell was the highest rated episode of the season! Over 2.9 million viewers tuned in to see the Manzos take down the sh*t stirring Kim G. Sunday’s episode was up 15 percent among total viewers compared to the previous week’s episode.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2 Cast

Bravo has just announced the highly anticipated second season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere September 5 at 10/9c!

Returning are of all the original six housewives pictured above – Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump.

Surprisingly missing from the cast photo is Brandi Glanville who was reported to be the new housewife. But fret not as Brandi will be on the new season though Bravo is not making her an official housewife. “Though not official “housewives,” this season the ladies are joined by two new friends: Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey, who certainly know how to spice things up in the world’s most famous zip code,” reads the press release. Dana is described as a party planner who throws elaborate parties (she’s the party planner behind Taylor’s infamous $60k tea party for her 4 year-old daughter in season one). A photo of Dana is below.

Bravo also released the official season trailer and it is nothing but drama! In the 2-minute trailer below, Taylor can be seen crying over and over and over, Lisa seems to ruffle Adrienne’s feathers as the two get into it (Adrienne accuses her of always stirring the pot), Camille and Kyle also get into it, and Taylor and Kyle fight as well. Cedric also makes an appearance when he crashes Lisa’s party.

However in the most dramatic scene, Brandi and Kim get into a very ugly argument that almost comes to blows. In the heated exchange, Brandi accuses Kim of using drugs! WHOA! Kim strikes right back by calling Brandi a “slut pig.” For some reason it appears Bravo has edited the current clip. In the original clip I viewed this morning, Brandi actually accuses Kim of snorting crystal meth in bathrooms. Ai ya ya.

Are you excited about the new season? The trailer is below!

Last night’s episode of Flipping Out was rowdy, raucous, and racy – and about renewal. Zoila finally got her facelift, Sarah got a send off to her new married life, Chaz Dean’s bathroom got a major uplift, and Jeff realized who on his team is really there for Jeff Lewis Design.

Jeff is planning Zoila’s plastic surgery viewing party – and she better be ready with shaved legs because the JLD team will be watching her get her face lifted and her neck tucked. I predict Jeff will be bringing popcorn and martinis to the party. Zoila doesn’t want Jeffery to watch though cause she’s going to be nakey. No bras mean no boys for Zoila! Jenni explains they are all really concerned, because Zoila is the glue that holds JLD together.
