Bryson Bryant

Bad news today for Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes’ as her son Bryson Bryant is once again making headlines for all the wrong reasons!

Following a TMZ report last year that Bryson was arrested after shoplifting razors from a local Walmart, there are numerous reports this morning that Bryson was hospitalized following a brutal bar fight.

Sources tell the StraightFromTheA blog that Bryson got into an altercation, at a local Atlanta night spot during an argument with another patron over a girl.

Words were reportedly exchanged and the two young men came to blows, resulting in Bryson being escorted to the hospital with several head wounds and a broken jaw. Other reports state Bryson also suffered multiple broken bones in his face. Yikes.

Nene however took to her twitter late yesterday to issue a non-denial denial. The Nene tweeted: “Don’t get me wrong, I love 2 b prayed 4 but sendin me well wishes about a bunch of lies is just crazy! The sh*t yall read & believe.”

Unfortunately for Nene, she forgot to get the denial memo to her son Bryson, who tweeted that he was indeed in the hospital and on pain killers. Bryson tweeted: “Soon as the doc bring wat i need i go 2 sleep,” later adding: “Yay dey jus walked n wit my meds ill be on da moon in 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 q.”

Alrighty. Moving on to Kim Zolciak and her former assistant Sweetie Hughes! If you recall, the two had a falling out late last year for reasons they never revealed, which led to Kim firing her. The duo, however, appear to have made up last month.

Well, according to a new report/blind item, a source is claiming Kim fired Sweetie because Sweetie allegedly stole from her and brought people into her home. It gets even better, as the source states Kim would never speak negatively of Sweetie, because Sweetie has a ton of dirt on her! Now that I believe!

Below is the full blind item, via Bossip -

“One of the blonder, paler-skinned Real Housewives Of Atlanta is rumored to have parted ways with her long-time, weave-wearing, darker-skinned assistant. After noticing that some random items were “missing” and seeing some unauthorized charges on her credit card the reality-show diva filed charges with local authorities and suspected that the assistant could be involved even though police apprehended the culprit. We’ve seen first hand on the show that there has been some tension between the two women because of laziness on the part of said employee. It is also rumored that the assistant has a new boyfriend that she brought to her surgically-enhanced employers house, and that was the straw that broke the cougar’s back!

Although she is said to be furious with her ex-assistant, she will not speak ill of her because the assistant has TONS of dirt on her and she don’t want those problems!”

Ai ya ya. All very interesting!

Teen Mom 2
In what is likely not a very sound financial choice, three of the stars of Teen Mom, Maci Bookout, Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska, all allegedly want to have more children, only without MTV’s cameras around!

According to a new report by Star magazine, a source is being quoted as stating that they “are hesitant to get pregnant again while involved with MTV.”

The source goes on to say that Maci “really wants a daughter with her current boyfriend Kyle King.” What better way to liven up her storyline than to show her adjusting to being the mother of a girl, and shopping for little girl clothing? Think of all the adorable pink merchandising opportunities!

Leah, who recently became pregnant with fiance Jeremy Calvert, and then miscarried, is “still hoping to have a third child” with Jeremy. Again, this would be another great path to pursue; watching Leah juggle twins, her ex Corey, and a new baby. The only teen mom I worry about is Chelsea, who despite everything, still wants another baby with Adam Lind. The source agrees with me, and thinks another kid is a bad idea, with or without MTV: “She said she didn’t want to make babies with anyone else. It’s a recipe for disaster, if you ask me.”

A true recipe for disaster is attempting to have more children after you’ve become used to a huge MTV paycheck. Then again, these ladies may have just come down with a case of I Want My Own Show-itis.

In other news, unfortunately, there is more to report on Jenelle Evans. We last reported she was facing jail time for violating a restraining order against ex-roommate Hannah Inman, which included accusations of Jenelle allegedly posting naked photos of Hannah to Jenelle’s Facebook fan page. It didn’t come as a shock to find out that Jenelle is now being accused of harassing yet another friend, Amber Lane.

In a new report, Amber alleges Jenelle cyber-bullied her: ““I’ve spent days crying over what Jenelle posted about me online calling me a slut and a whore and reading comments from her thousands of fans saying I should kill myself. Jenelle is a bully — and she got what she deserved, going to jail twice in one week on the harassment charges.”

Other lovely allegations include a story of Jenelle throwing a baby crib out of a window and “destroying a family heirloom” of Amber’s. Amber thinks the only thing that will teach Jenelle to be nice is to get locked up, saying “[Jail] is the only way she’ll ever learn. Her bullying techniques are so harsh it could eventually push someone over the edge to hurt themselves or commit suicide.”

A new episode of Teen Mom 2 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK MACI, CHELSEA, AND LEAH SHOULD GET PREGNANT AGAIN? DO YOU THINK THIS IS A PLOY TO GET HIGHER SALARIES OR THEIR OWN SHOWS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LATEST ACCUSATIONS AGAINST JENELLE?

Basketball Wives hasn’t premiered yet, but the drama preceding the show has been happening for months! In the latest, the much maligned Royce Reed talks the upcoming season, the arguments, and her opinion of creator and producer Shaunie O’Neal! Oh, and in case your wondering if Royce has any interest in joining the popular crowd – rest assured; she doesn’t!

Royce warns that this season viewers will see a decidedly less dramatic side of her as she stays out of the pettiness and the chaos. “Sorry to bust your bubble, but I’m not really in a lot of the drama,” she tells Sister2Sister. We will see her focusing on her outside projects, though. “I’m really out there just trying to do my own thing career-wise,” she explains. “I have a career outside of on this show.”

As for conflicts, Royce says there are none with the new editions to the cast, Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell, who she says are definitely getting along a lot better than season one non-factor Meeka Claxton!

“[Meeka] wanted to be cool with certain people that did not want to be cool with her and she pretty much got stabbed in the back like 10, 20, 30 times,” Royce reveals. “I tried to tell her. Tami [Roman] tried to tell her, and it was like in one ear and like the other. You see where she is now … I don’t have an issue with Meeka at all. We’ve actually talked. She’s apologized.” Royce adds that Meeka has since admitted she formed opinions on the ladies before actually getting to know them.

One person Royce hasn’t mended fences with is Shaunie, but don’t expect confrontations between the two. “I don’t film with her. We don’t like each other. I don’t know what her issue is with me. … She was making up lies about me that wasn’t true,” Royce insists.

Denying rumors that Shaunie acts as the puppeteer amongst the ladies, Royce is adamant that isn’t true. “She doesn’t pimp me, and I’m pretty sure y’all see she doesn’t pimp me. My thing is, she does not own the show.”

“She doesn’t make me do anything, say anything … Yeah, it brings in a check, but I refuse to sell my soul for a check,” Royce asserts. Despite some of her mistakes from last season, Royce stands by them and insists she makes her own decisions on the show. “Everybody makes mistakes, it’s just ours is in front of the world.”

Speaking of mistakes and drama, another person Royce will be ignoring this season is resident mean girl, Evelyn Lozada! Darn – who will Evelyn be flinging drinks at then? Oh, nevermind… she’ll find someone!

Speaking of Evelyn, she is denying recent rumors that her abs were drawn on for her recent Maxim photoshoot. “People thought my abs were sprayed on but they weren’t. They are all real!,” she insists to TooFab, while promoting her upcoming book, The Wives Association: The Inner Circle. Does Evelyn really expect people to believe she wrote a book?

Evelyn adds that the shoot was an “amazing experience” even though it was freezing. Is that why she looks upset in every shot? Oh, and she also wants you to buy her new make-up, E by Evelyn Lozada, which comes out this month. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of it on the upcoming season. A photo of Evelyn’s Maxim shoot is below!

ARE YOU SURPRISED ROYCE MANAGED TO RETURN THIS SEASON GIVEN HER FIGHT WITH SHAUNIE? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE WILL STAY OUT OF THE DRAMA? ARE EVELYN’S ABS REAL – YES OR NO?!

Last week’s brutal segment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion left several of the ladies reeling – particularly Lisa Vanderpump, who found herself to be under attack from supposed friend, Adrienne Maloof. After rumors claimed Adrienne had planned on conspiring against Lisa, the ladies spent the better part of the last week pretending that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Taking to her Bravo blog, Lisa claims she is still emotional over her experience at the reunion. Poor Lisa describes the experience as traumatic, stating she is “still at a loss for words,” after watching it again. “It certainly looked the way it felt and I have no words to describe it,” Lisa says.

Lisa is calling the other ladies out for their horrific high school behavior! “We have seen the tea party, seen game night, and I understand that is how these women roll,” she snips. “But it’s not OK to accuse somebody viciously or to sit there silently as you watch a friend who is under attack for hours. That speaks volumes, and I for one don’t want any part of it.” I wonder how Kyle Richards is going to explain her actions on that one!

“I am not going to say anymore,” Lisa writes. “It is what it is, and I will bounce back,” adding that she may have put too much faith in certain people. Lisa admits, “I would question my own judgment.” Ouch!

Adrienne is also speaking out about the reunion and she admits she may have crossed the line, but reminds us she is only human. “Over the last two years, you have seen me in some great moments and in some tough ones. The one thing that has always worked for me is to be straight up,” Adrienne explains in her Bravo blog. “It’s not always an easy choice to just lay things on the line, especially when you’re telling someone you care about that you feel hurt or vulnerable because of their actions.”

“Please remember you only see a fractional portion of our lives and our relationships. There were moments occurring behind the scenes as well that were causing hurt feelings amongst all of the ladies.”

Adrienne explains that she believed the issues between the ladies were not “irrevocable” so she decided confronting them head on would be the best way to find a resolution. Perhaps that’s where the planned attack rumor came from… “I felt that clearing the air was worth it, for all of us. This is an amazing group of women who are far better off enjoying each other’s company than fighting.”

“This was something that I considered to be a minor bump in the road, and I expected we’d move on from all of this once we talked about it,” Adrienne writes. “Ultimately, those who know me also know that resolution was always my goal.”

“What I have taken from all of this is that maybe my approach was too direct in this situation, and in the future there will be times when a softer approach is a better idea,” she admits.

And Adrienne is adamant that she cares about Lisa and hopes to move forward. “I value my friendship with Lisa, and I’m looking forward to moving on in a positive direction with all of my fellow ‘Wives — who I truly think are brilliant, talented, and beautiful.” I”m happy Adrienne so readily admitted she was wrong. Good for her.

Moving right along to media queen Kyle, who scarcely goes a day without talking to the press. Kyle appeared on Geraldo at Large last week with friend Faye Resnick where Geraldo asked her all about her experiences on RHOBH – including her opinion on Russell Armstrong‘s suicide.

Kyle again reiterated that the show is “not scripted” and admits she has misgivings and regrets associated with her decision to appear on reality TV.

Geraldo wondered if the ladies knew how bad Taylor Armstrong‘s marriage was, to which Kyle answered, “Yes.” Kyle explained the ladies pretended not to know and tried to ignore it in front of the cameras fearing how Russell would react if he was aware that Taylor was confiding in her friends about the abuse. Faye explains that Taylor told the ladies “over and over again” about the abuse and even admitted it in the bathroom of a restaurant!

Geraldo also asked if Kyle held Bravo responsible for Russell’s suicide. Kyle believes Russell’s financial issues are the reason he took his life. “No, you know, he was in such deep financial distress,” Kyle said. “Everybody was coming after him, he really got himself into a situation where he couldn’t hide anymore.”

“He owed a lot of money and he was really having a hard time staying afloat,” Kyle added. “Somebody who is abusive, obviously, has issues as it is to begin with.” Faye claims Taylor is still emotionally distraught and feels the loss of Russell “deeply.”

Finally, tonight marks the second episode of the three-part reunion and Brandi Glanville will go head-to-head with Taylor. Brandi speaking for most of America takes issue with some of Taylor’s behaviors throughout the season and following Russell’s suicide. She also readily admits that she told Lisa the other women talk about her, which leaves Adrienne speechless! A clip is below!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Part Two airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.

Ever since dumping her husband and being abandoned by the press because of her shallow behavior, Kim Kardashian is at her wits end. It seems everywhere the former star turns, more trouble emerges!

In the latest, Life & Style is reporting (via their print edition) that Kim has hit rock bottom! Overheard complaining to friends while dining at Cipriani in NYC, Kim was reportedly whining about how no one loves her! “I’m so alone. I didn’t expect all of this. It’s devastating,” she was overheard saying.

“Kim was shoveling in the carbs,” an eyewitness at the restaurant describes. “From the moment she sat down, she was munching on breadsticks. The table ordered a plate of prosciutto and Kim wolfed down a plate of pasta as her main course. When she was done she leaned back and rubbed her stomach satisfied.” Uh oh… maybe Kim is hoping to be Weight Watchers’ next celebrity representative!

Kim’s depression has reportedly stemmed from the constant criticism over her divorce and the incredible media onslaught she has faced since dumping Kris Humphries on her reality show, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, after a mere three months of marriage.

Most upsetting for the desperate Kim is her worry that she will never find another man stupid enough to fall for her crap because of her treatment of Kris. Not to mention all the rumors about her sexcapades with various celebs. Kim fears that no one wants to date her. “Right now I don’t know anyone who wants to be Mr. Kim Kardashian. Not after what happened to Kris Humphries, no way!”

Due to the stress of constantly reading negative things about herself via GoogleAlert, Kim has turned to food and solitude! “Kim is becoming a really private person,” a source says. “She stays home all the time. It’s like she’s afraid to be in public.” Funny, because there’s still a ton of paparazzi photos of her floating around every week!

Additionally, now that Kim is less famous than in the months preceding her divorce, many of her friends have ditched her. Don’t worry – Jonathan Cheban has stuck around! Kim is trying to change though, y’all, and find new friends through her renewed interest in faith. The 31-year-old twice-divorced, sex tape star has been tweeting about attending church and has expressed an interest in starting a bible study group. You know what – I hope she does!

Poor Kris H had his heart put through the ringer and sadly had to relive the dilapidation of his marriage through so-called reality television. Unlike Kimmie, who is desperately wanting a new man, Kris still hasn’t moved on from his harrowing experience of being married to Kim.

According to TMZ, the New Jersey Nets star has no intention of dating anytime soon, as sources reveal he is focused exclusively on his career. Which, you know, involves actual talent and hard work – unlike his soon-to-be ex-wife’s! Kris hasn’t been on a single date since learning of his divorce through the media. Apparently, Kris is having an amazing season, so maybe Kim dumping him was a good thing!

Responding to all those rumors that she was rejected by Tim Tebow and secretly hooking up with Mark Sanchez; Kim claims none of them are true! Riiiiight. In fact, Kim has decided she is done with the NFL and wants to expand her horizons to other professional sports to find her next victim boyfriend. Sources tell TMZ, Kim’s break up with Reggie Bush was so traumatic she’s never looked at a football helmet the same way since. Really? Kimmie’s sources must be forgetting about her brief relationship with NFL player Miles Austin!

Not only that, Kim’s break up was so stressful she apparently is suing Old Navy! And speaking of that, Kim will be headed to court for the estimated $20 million dollar lawsuit she filed against Old Navy and its parent company The Gap; accusing them of intentionally using a look-alike in one of their ads to mislead the public to believe Kim endorsed the company.

According to E! News, a trial date has been set for April 23, 2013, by Federal Judge Dale S. Fischer. The trial is expected to last about a week. The Gap is arguing that their advertisement is protected under the First Amendment – they will also attempt to prove that Kim’s reputation is already so awful, people thinking she’s in an Old Navy ad might actually improve things! Being that Kim won’t be in front of a judge until 2013, she has a whole year to withdraw her frivolous lawsuit!

Moving right along, Kim’s TV nemesis Melissa Molinaro, the girl who was accused of the so-called Kimpersonation for her appearance in an Old Navy commercial singing and dancing (like anyone thinks Kim can sing or dance!), is speaking out about Kim’s lawsuit. Melissa calls Kim’s desperate attempt for more attention and money lawsuit “silly,” but admits she doesn’t really understand what it’s all about!

“To be honest, I really don’t even know what’s going on with it,” Melissa told Fox411. “No one’s really called me and told me.”

“I just think the whole thing is a little silly,” she adds, echoing what nearly everyone else thinks. “I mean, they held auditions in Miami, New York and L.A. to find this girl, and they wanted to find a Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas type of girl – I mean, (Kim’s) name never came up – it was not on their radar whatsoever.” Whoa! So you mean when Old Navy said they wanted someone who could sing and dance they didn’t immediately think of Kim?! You don’t say…

It is rumored that Melissa, along with the man she shared with Kim, Reggie, will be expected to take the stand in an attempt to prove Kim’s real reason for filing the suit was personal. “What’s crazy about that is I’ve known Reggie for going on three years now,” Melissa reveals. “People thought that it was just because of the commercial, but I mean, I’ve known him for years. It wasn’t anything new – not for us.”

Additionally, Melissa, who is working steadily in the entertainment business has just released a single and filmed a comedy spoof for the SyFy Network, has no intention of selling out Kim style – aka selling her body – for her fifteen minutes of fame. And while she’s not naming names about who exactly she means, it’s pretty obvious!

“Nothing happens overnight, especially if you do it my way – which is with morals,” Melissa snips. “There are people – and we all know them – that sell out and they’re just famous for being famous. I’m not where I want to be – yet – but it takes a long time, if you do it the right way. There are a lot of girls out there who have done things in their careers to be famous and to make it, and I’m not in it for the 15 minutes–I’m in it for the long haul.”

“I have my morals and my values in check and my family,” Melissa asserts. Touché Melissa. Touché.

ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT NO ONE WANTS TO DATE KIM? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM HAS SWORN OFF THE NFL? WAS MELISSA MOLINARO’S DISS JUSTIFIED?

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that a new VH1 spin-off is coming to town. The network, which was once known for music videos back when MTV first started straying from music, is now known for some fighting, catty women. Its hit Basketball Wives now features two different series in Miami and Los Angeles, as well as the spin-off Baseball Wives.

Now the same has happened for Love & Hip Hop, as the franchise is expanding to include some lovely ladies of Atlanta.

Season 2 of the hit show, which centers around women in the hip-hop industry, averaged close to 3 million viewers, with 3.15 million tuning in to watch the last episode. Those numbers compare to RHOA viewership. For VH1 to hit those kind of benchmarks is huge for the network which is testing the waters with these bickering Betties.

The article cites, “Atlanta, of course, is known as a major town for hip hop. Several folks in the hip-hop/R&B world from Atlanta have already taken part in reality shows, including Keyshia Cole, Toni Braxton, Chilli, Monica, T.I. and Tiny and Kandi Burruss, to name a few. And if you go back a few years, there was Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston.”

Apparently, if you can’t sell your music, you need to be showcasing yourself on your own reality show, and it seems that Atlanta is the place to do it. In fact, TLC has already announced that its new reality show Preacher Wives will be filmed in the Georgia hot spot.

Casting for the Love & Hip Hop spin-off has not been finalized, though, it is being rumored that these ladies are in talks to join the cast – rapper Diamond, video model Summer Walker, rapper Rasheeda, and exotic dancer Gigi Maguire.

Meanwhile the reunion for the current season airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1. However, it’s being touted as more of a “special episode” than a reunion, seeing as several of the ladies couldn’t handle being in the same room with one another. I guess John Salley just doesn’t have the referee skills needed for this bunch!

Show producer Mona Scott Young revealed on twitter that they couldn’t film a reunion because some of the cast members wouldn’t be in the same room together. While it’s been rumored that those cast members are Chrissy Lampkin and Yandy Smith, sources are stating Chrissy is the lone one who refused to be in the same room as Yandy.

On tonight’s “special episode”–aptly titled “Reality Check”–Yandy speaks with producer (and her mentor) Mona Scott Young about the role she played on the show.

In the preview clip posted below, we find out it was Yandy’s nemesis Chrissy who originally wanted her on the show. That, however, changed as soon as Scott decided to make Yandy a regular on the show, much to the dismay of the soon to be Mrs. Jim Jones.

Explaining her decision to increase the camera time for Jim Jones’ former manager, Mona tells YandyYou were funny, you were charismatic, we wanted to see more of Yandy.

This still doesn’t explain why Chrissy has so much rage towards Yandy. And it’s that rage that is causing the reunion to be nothing more than the ladies being interviewed separately. Where is the fun in that?

Of course, we know that even individually, the women can bring the drama as evident in the clip below, Chrissy is quick to remind Yandy, “B*tch, you on MY show!” Yikes! Once again Chrissy, you need a hobby! One that doesn’t involve Jim or bickering with the people in Jim’s life!

When the geniuses behind Twitter started working on their product way back in 2006, did they ever dream it would become a broadcasting board and cyberwar territory for reality stars? Because that is exactly what it has turned into. The latest Z-lister to drop a bombshell on the social networking site was Teen Mom 2‘s Leah Messer, who finally decided to come clean about her rumored cheating on ex-husband Corey Simms via a post.

“Okay, I cheated a week before my wedding people. I’m tired of hearing about it. At least I’m not a coward, and can admit my faults!” tweeted Leah.

That is to say, she can admit her faults now, since previously she denied that she had cheated on Corey at all. She continued to tweet about it, saying: “It was one of my regrets in my life, stop accusing and pointing fingers. Things happen to different people different ways. #GodsMyJUDGE”

Yes, Leah, God is your judge, and so are the tabloids, bloggers, and fans following your every move! Earlier this year, Leah was judged by the peanut gallery for smoking while pregnant, a pregnancy she tragically later went on to miscarry. The wise Leah admits to a pretty zen attitude towards her tumultuous life and decisions, ending her posts with this confusing message, “I can not not change whats happened. I can only be proud of where I stand now, and learn from it. I’m in no way proud of my mistakes, but last I checked we aren’t proud of our mistakes.”

Leah is now engaged to the man she met after her divorce from Corey was finalized, Jeremy Calvert.

In more news, Amber Portwood, who remains in jail for violating her probation after she was found with over 40 non-prescribed pills, went before a judge today. The good news for the troubled star is that the judge approved her plea deal, which will have her doing a stint in rehab instead of the alternative of doing 5 years in prison.

According to TMZ, Amber will remain in custody pending a full evaluation by the Drug Court team. The evaluation will reportedly take up to two weeks, but once accepted into the program, Amber will be released immediately.

A source close to Amber tells RadarOnline that she’ll live with her grandmother once she’s out: “The family’s first priority is getting Amber out of jail. After that, she will be living with her grandmother until she gets her life back together.”

As for her ex and father to her daughter Leah, Gary Shirley, he appears to be treating the situation in a two-faced manner, the source alleges: “Gary tells the family he is being supportive, but who knows what is said behind closed doors; he tends to try to put Amber down when she needs support the most.”

Hopefully, Amber will be able to see her daughter Leah once she is released. The source goes on to say, “She should be able to see Leah. No one has said otherwise … she wants to be a better mother and role model to Leah.”

TELL US: WERE YOU SHOCKED BY LEAH’S CHEATING ADMISSION? DO YOU THINK SHE HAS A FUTURE WITH JEREMY? HOW DO YOU THINK AMBER WILL DO IN REHAB? DO YOU THINK SHE WILL GET HER LIFE TOGETHER?

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong appeared on NBC’s The Today Show this morning during which she openly discussed her book, the alleged abuse by deceased husband Russell Armstrong, and fired back at her sister-in-law Laurie Kelsoe, who most recently called her a gold-digging liar.

First, Russell’s sister Laurie also spoke to the Today Show, stating Russell always denied ever abusing Taylor. Laurie then stated she wanted to know why Taylor is releasing her tell-all memoir… now that Russell is no longer here to defend himself.

The Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie posed that question to Taylor who responded: “I don’t feel that his sister has much knowledge of what went on in our relationship. The last time I saw her, we had just taken her out of rehab for Meth. And she had been a Meth addict for about five years, and we were married for about six. So I’m not really sure that she had her finger on the pulse of what was going on.”

When asked if she ever considered not making the gruesome abuse details public, Taylor said: “I absolutely thought of that. You know, what should I do, what to write? What not? But those really raw moments are what’s going to allow me to make a conversation that could end up hopefully helping somebody else out there. I got out way too late and I’m hoping by others hearing my story, they might decide to get out sooner.”

Taylor continued: “You know I went as far as taking a polygraph test just to try and prove to him that I never had an affair on him. But he just had this constant paranoia. And as they were unstrapping me from the polygraph test, I thought why am I taking a polygraph for someone I love? But I was so desperate to keep it together that I would have gone to any extreme.”

When asked about her lowest point in the marriage, Taylor alleged it was when Russell “knocked my jaw out of the socket.” She added: “I would say whenever I was on my knees over a toilet with my jaw not in the place that it was supposed to be, there was saliva running out of my mouth and I was thinking to myself, ‘How am I not going to call an ambulance. How am I going to protect him? I don’t want him to go to jail. What do I do if I can’t get my jaw back in place?’ Just being over a toilet and feeling like the only thing I could think of was forget my jaw, I just want to protect him.”

Taylor once again stated she did the RHOBH reality show because she thought the cameras would protect her from the abuse. When asked if Russell was against her doing the show, Taylor said: “No no, he loved it. He loved being in the media. He would wake up everyday and go to his Blackberry. The first thing he would do is look at his Google Alerts with his name in it. He really loved seeing his name in the news. That’s just kind of the person he was.”

Taylor also insists that she still loves Russell despite it all. “I love him to this day and I miss him terribly.”

Taylor’s new book — “Hiding From Reality: My Story of Love, Loss & Finding the Courage Within” — is scheduled to be released tomorrow.

Meanwhile Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards sent out this interesting tweet last week: “The only way Taylor Armstrong can prove Russell A. battered her is by releasing her medical records that coincide with her plastic surgery.”

Ronald also tweeted this today: “It is not a coincidence that Taylor never filed a FALSE police report / decl. in her divorce she was a victim of DV. It is a crime to do so.” The video of Taylor’s interview is below.
