TMZ has learned the stars of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" were well aware of Taylor Armstrong's claims of spousal abuse ....long before her allegations went public.

Sources connected with the show tell us ... Taylor had showed her castmates bruising and other injuries, claiming her husband Russell was responsible.

According to sources connected with production, Taylor -- who filed for divorce from her husband Russell earlier this month -- was adamant about hiding what she has called a physically and emotionally abusive marriage.

And, sources say, Russell even got "aggressive" with Taylor at an event, and execs from Bravo witnessed it.

Taylor told People.com, her arguments with her husband often got physical -- with Russell grabbing her, shoving her, and pulling her hair.

Russell has denied the hair-pulling, but admits to pushing her -- blaming "Housewives" for pushing the couple to their "limit."

I don't know about this..She always put him down and looked at him with hate in her eyes. I think she is a goof ball nutcase. Spoiled by his money, what talent or skills does she have, just spending his cash. She probably made this all up and everything is self inflicted.

An abuser? Really? Taylor must be a very fragile woman, because I'm 5'1 and 105 lbs and I know I could kick the sh** out of this wimpy excuse for a male.
Not trying to make light of an abusive marriage, but he looks like he doesn't have enough strength to hurt anything, except his platinum card.

I'm sad to hear this. I was relieved to read a while back that she finally left. IT was obvious that she was in a controlling and loveless marriage. My heart ached for her many times during the RH show. I hope she finds happiness within herself and her sweet little girl.

Taylor has said many times on the show that she really pursued
Russell. When they met, he clearly wasn't interested in her and she has said that on the show, more than once.

She didn't give up.

However, the fact that he finally gave in, doesn't give him the right to abuse her (if that's true).

Hopefully, however this goes, it will not turn ugly, there is an innocent child involved.

Looks like the pressure was getting to him ... Taylor's spending was out of control with stupid lavish children's birthday parties - she knew they had financial problems and went ahead with spending anyway because she was not paying the bills.

Blah    

Taylor is such a fame whore. I just saw her on an old episode of The Hills where Stephanie is on a date with Doug and gets "busted" by Taylor and Brody's mom.
