Taylor Armstrong Book Deal

On the last episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, viewers saw costars Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof bicker over which high end luxury hotel should have hosted the bachelorette party for Lisa’s daughter — a.k.a. Rich People Problems!

Adrienne particularly took offense to the fact that Lisa didn’t ask her if she would host Pandora Vanderpump’s bachelorette party at her Palms hotel in Vegas so that she can get free promotion for her business on national television! Adrienne decided to confront Lisa during her event, and Lisa did not back down, making it clear the owner of Planet Hollywood was a family friend and that the decision to have the bachelorette party there was her daughter’s.

In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa fires back at Adrienne, hinting that Adrienne’s only concern was promoting her own hotel. Lisa also feels the whole argument was ridic stating she doesn’t question Adrienne whenever she chooses to dine at other restaurants in Beverly Hills.

Lisa wrote: “Apparently [Adrienne] was miffed that Pandora had decided to hold her bachelorette party at our old family friend Robert Earl’s venue, Planet Hollywood . Robert loves her and had no intention of promoting the hotel. I mean, how dare my daughter choose what she wants? She should be supporting her mother’s neighbor’s business! I seriously couldn’t understand this. It was the first I knew of her being upset. Jason had had his bachelor party a couple of weeks before, hosted by our friend, and Pandora was going to do the same. It was all arranged. I wasn’t going and hadn’t been involved in the arrangements.”

Lisa continued, “Somehow, to cut a long story short, I was roped into this trip, and obviously, now you, the viewer, will get to witness it, so everything changes. What was to be Pandora’s trip became a major production, and I was suddenly in trouble for it. I resent the fact that suddenly I am to blame, it is a huge deal to entertain 14 people, and I certainly would never dream of asking anybody to do that. Robert wanted to comp the whole weekend as his gift to Pandora, Why do I feel I have to constantly justify mine and my daughter’s actions?”

To close out her blog, Lisa hinted that perhaps Adrienne was just trying to create drama for the camera. “When Adrienne and Paul are having dinner at a neighboring restaurant, it wouldn’t even enter my mind to question them! It seems as if some people are looking for a problem. . . So there we have it. Once again a pleasant evening was marred by a really petty matter. I am losing patience with this constant need for altercations when we all have busy lives,” blogged Lisa.

Pandora also took to Twitter to defend her mom. Pandora tweeted, “Hello?Do I have a voice? Jason and I planned our own bachelor/bachelorette parties, not @LisaVanderpump #givemeabreak #loveplanethollywood.” Pandora later added: “An old friend offered to throw it at his casino PH and I have known him since I was 9!”

Moving on to Taylor ArmstrongRadarOnline is now reporting she just signed a book deal — a memoir that will reportedly include details of her marital turmoil with deceased husband Russell Armstrong.

“Taylor’s deal is with Simon and Schuster and the book will be out in February 2012,” a source close to Taylor reveals. “It will be a memoir and the abuse she endured while married to Russell, as well as another abusive relationship she was in the past will all be detailed.”

The source adds, “Taylor is writing the book to put a face on women involved in domestic violence. She wants the public to know there are resources for battered women, and there is a way out.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LISA’S COMMENTS? DID ADRIENNE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET AT HER? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S BOOK DEAL? WOULD YOU READ IT?

According to a recent report, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has inked a book deal which will include personal photos of the injuries she sustained during her alleged abuse from Russell Armstrong.

RadarOnline reports the book was intended to be about her alleged physical abuse, but Taylor, who is desperate for money decided to include photos of her injuries.

“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,” an insider told Radar. “It’s no secret that Taylor’s been strapped for cash since Russell died, and since she hasn’t received the advance on her book yet, a few of the Housewives have been helping her out financially.”

The source adds that Taylor is hoping to have the book out by November, in time for the holidays. “Not only is Taylor going to write about her own personal experiences, but she wants to spotlight other celebrities who have been involved in domestic abuse situations.”

However, we are not so certain whether this book deal is an attempt by Taylor to capitalize off Russell’s suicide as we reported last week that Taylor actually tweeted about the book deal days before Russell’s passing. While including the pictures of the alleged abuse might be a different story, this book deal was in the works before the suicide.

In other Taylor news, Radar is also reporting today that during filming for the RHOBH, Taylor got so drunk at one point that she was almost hospitalized for alcohol poisoning. And it was all caught on tape.

“Taylor was so upset about the state of her then marriage that she got very, very intoxicated,” an insider revealed “This wasn’t normal behavior at all for her. She was so drunk that she probably should have gone to the hospital. She is so tiny, and hadn’t eaten a lot that day, which only made the situation worse. Taylor felt that she didn’t need medical attention though and refused to go to the hospital.”

And finally, the latest issue of Life & Style magazine is reporting that Taylor is too devastated to eat. The mag reports that following Russell’s passing on Aug. 15, Taylor has all but forgotten about food citing the fact that she had to be carried out of the Aug. 24 funeral service because she was too weak to stand.

“Her clothes were hanging off her,” notes an onlooker. “She’s really emaciated. Her whole face was sunken in.”

TELL US – IF TAYLOR WAS INDEED ABUSED BY RUSSELL, IS IT HER RIGHT TO INCLUDE THE ABUSE PHOTOS IN THE BOOK? OR SHOULD SHE NOT?
