Taylor Armstrong Divorce

It’s now official. A day after her husband Russell Armstrong revealed they had separated, Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce.

PEOPLE is reporting that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star filed for divorce late Friday following 6 years of marriage. In fact Taylor herself confirmed the news through a statement.

“It was a difficult decision but I have decided to file for divorce from Russell,” Taylor revealed in an exclusive statement. “Although we have tried our best to work out our differences, I have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our family that we separate.”

Taylor continued, “Together we are the proud parents of a sweet and wonderful little girl and she remains my number one priority. I am sad for my marriage to come to an end, but am confident that this is the right choice for all involved.”

Meanwhile Russell also opened up to the Rumor Fix website. “The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming,” he reveals. “It took our manageable problems and made them worse.” Russell described this as a “devastating time,” adding, “I don’t want you to get the impression that Taylor and I are bitter enemies — we’re not.”

UsWeekly first reported the couple had split in May but they denied it back then. The couple had been going through therapy to try to fix their marriage. Taylor, 39, and Russell, 47, tied the knot in 2005 and have one daughter together – Kennedy, 5.

Taylor is asking for joint legal and primary physical custody of Kennedy, as well as spousal and child support. TMZ is also reporting the couple had no prenup. Wowzers.

TELL US – THOUGHTS? IS THE HOUSEWIVES TO BLAME FOR THIS DIVORCE?

It’s official, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong have separated.

Over a month after initially denying a reported split, Russell himself is now confirming the news to OK! magazine stating a divorce is likely the next step.

“We still love each other, but after going through counseling it has gotten to the point that the stress is just too much for both of us,” Russell tells OK!.

OK! also reports that Russell has in fact moved out of the home the couple shares with their 5-year-old daughter Kennedy. As for what led to the demise of their marriage, Russell, whose past legal issues came out last year, blames the pressures of being on television.

“I want Taylor to be the biggest actress on TV, and I want to feel happy not being on TV!” Russell adds.

As for Taylor, who has yet to publicly comment on this news, it appears she is already moving on. The NY Post is reporting today that she had a fun night out in the Hamptons recently with “Hell’s Kitchen” chef Seth Levine. Sources tell the Post that Taylor and Seth were acting very friendly at Seth’s East Hampton hotspot Georgica before heading to the dance floor for some dirty dancing.  Taylor’s rep however denies the story. A picture of Seth is below.

UsWeekly also reported back in May that Taylor and Russell were experiencing “huge marital problems related to finances.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS? DO YOU THINK THEY WILL RECONCILE OR GO THROUGH WITH THE DIVORCE?

It’s splitsville for Taylor Armstrong and husband Russell Armstrong reports UsWeekly.

According to the latest issue of the magazine, Taylor, 39, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has finally left the icy Russell after 7 years of marriage. A source close to Taylor confirms the news to the mag.

“They’ve had huge marital problems related to finances,” the insider says of the couple, who were most recently seen together with daughter Kennedy, 5, at a May 7 Lollipop Theater Network event in California.

The news of a split doesn’t come as a surprise as their marital issues were well documented on the first season of the Bravo hit show which had Taylor comparing her marriage to a business arrangement. Plus reports came out months ago that the couple was undergoing marriage counseling.

The insider adds that the split has taken a physical toll on Taylor. “She’s emaciated — down 10, 15 pounds,” the source reveals. A report came out last month questioning if Taylor was anorexic after shocking new bikini photos of her came out showing a very skinny frame.

Meanwhile, the drama doesn’t end there for the RHOBH. While most of us assumed new housewife Brandi Glanville would be clashing with Lisa Vanderpump (Brandi’s good friends with Lisa’s former houseguest Cedric), it seems it is Kyle Richards who is clashing with Brandi on the show.

UsWeekly reports Brandi, 38 and Kyle, 42, have been “going at it” since filming began on season 2. “They got into a fight and Brandi lunged at Kyle,” reveals a source. “They had to be separated by producers.”

PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Brandi is “very happy” about joining the RHOBH and that “she really wanted to be on the show.” As for what we can expect on the second season, sources reveal Kim Richards is more assertive while sister Kyle has taken a more laid-back approach. Also, the entire cast has been more accepting of Camille Grammer, who clashed with Kyle on the first season.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR LEAVING RUSSELL? ARE YOU SURPRISED? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE CLASH BETWEEN BRANDI AND KYLE?

UPDATE - Taylor’s rep is now denying the split to PEOPLE magazine. A source states that while “their relationship is not without trouble… they’re still together.”  The source also denies any financial difficulties. Only time will tell if the original Us Weekly story is true as US tends to be a reliable media outlet.
