Russell Armstrong

There have been rumblings and whispers about Taylor Armstrong since she began appearing on Bravo’s the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but those whispers have only gotten louder in recent weeks.

In fact, a recent post by TheDirty website alleges Taylor and her husband Russell Armstrong might be scammers. According to an email sent in by a reader, Taylor, who’s birth name is Shana Hughes, changed her name to Taylor Ford before she married Russell and even pretended to be from the Ford Motor Company family, wanting others to believe she came from money.

The reader states she and her husband met Taylor and Russell back in 2004 and the four decided to do dinner at the Prime 112 restaurant in South Beach. Russell was allegedly trying to get the couple to invest in one of his businesses and brought along Taylor, whom he claimed was from the Ford Motor family.

The reader adds that Taylor was aloof, rude and condescending during the dinner. She “seemed more like white-trash dressed in Gucci than a trust-fund person,” adds the reader.

And in another post on the RealFauxHousewives website, the same reader revealed Taylor got drunk that night and proceeded to have an inappropriate make-out session with Russell in the back of their Mercedes (the four drove together to South Beach.) It gets even better as the two then left to use the bathroom but never came back leaving the reader and her husband with a huge bill (mostly from all the drinks they ordered). The reader and her husband tried to call Russell repeatedly that night but he wouldn’t return their calls until the next day.

Meanwhile, the Starcasm website reports that Russell is a convicted felon. In 1995, the IRS charged him with evasion of assessment, and in 1997, he pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced to five years of probation plus community service.

Starcasm also reports that in 2001, Russell was sued by a woman who claimed he sold her $175,000 worth of bad stock. The two reached a settlement though the lady ended up taking Russell back to court after he failed to make payments. Russell was named in another securities fraud lawsuit in 2003.

TMZ reported last October that he filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2005, citing he had less than $50,000 in assets and debt between 1 and 10 million bucks. Russell was also involved in a “costly” palimony lawsuit filed by a former fianceé.  Russell has however managed to stay out of civil suits or governmental prosecution since 2003.

Meanwhile, a bonus clip released by Bravo only seems to further prove that Taylor is indeed a social climbing phony.

If you recall, Taylor mentioned several times on the show that Adrienne Maloof was the godmother of her daughter Kennedy. This left many viewers puzzled as Taylor and Adrienne did not appear to be close on the show, at all.

Well in the video clip below, Adrienne denies being Kennedy’s godmother when asked by Andy Cohen at the reunion show. Even more interesting is Adrienne’s, who has a hard time hiding her true feelings, reaction to the question as she appears visibly irritated.

And so it begins.  Taylor Armstrong finds herself the first victim of the ‘Housewives Curse’ as a new report by TMZ reveals her husband, Russell Armstrong, filed for bankruptcy in 2005.

According to TMZ, the husband of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who can also be seen on the show looking totally disinterested in his wife, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in October 2005.

Russell, who is an investor, said in court documents that he had less than $50,000 in assets with his debt being somewhere between the 1 to 10 million range.

As for the reason for the bankruptcy filing, Russell revealed he earned a ton of money during the 1990′s “dot.com boom” but apparently took a huge financial hit when everything crashed.  Things also went from bad to worse following 9/11, an IRS dispute, and a “costly” palimony lawsuit filed by a former fianceé.

Russell and Taylor have been married for 7 years.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

If it seems as if you’re being bombarded with a new Housewives franchise every couple of weeks, it’s likely because you are.

The latest franchise coming our way tonight is the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The premiere episode, airing at 10/9c on Bravo, will introduce us to the six new ladies who are getting ready to stick their heads into the Bravo Housewives toilet.

While the most of the other housewives series feature unknowns, this series stars some well known names. The most famous cast member would have to be Camille Grammer, who recently filed for divorce from husband actor Kelsey Grammer after 14 years of marriage. In case you haven’t been keeping up with the divorce drama, Kelsey then went on to impregnate his new girlfriend just weeks after Camille filed for divorce, and just last week, Kelsey announced publicly that his much younger girlfriend suffered a miscarriage.

Also on the show, Paris Hilton’s aunts – Kyle Richards and Kim Richards. The two are also described as former child actors.

So what can we expect in tonight’s premiere? A Bravo press release states “Sisters Kyle and Kim Richards have trouble seeing eye-to-eye on anything and aren’t afraid to fight it out. Kyle, who promised her mom she’d look after her sister isn’t sure if she can keep her word with so much inter-family drama happening. Meanwhile, Lisa VanderPump happily welcomes house guests to join her and her husband Ken. Lisa’s personal trainer and close friend may turn out to be the house guest that never leaves. But in a mansion like Lisa’s, who can blame him? Join these ladies in the lap of luxury and enjoy a rich serving of drama tonight.”
