Taylor Armstrong

"So Much Therapy" With Russell

9/6/2011 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090611_real_housewives_videoTaylor Armstrong confessed on the season premiere of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... that she and Russell Armstrong were engaged in intense couples therapy before his suicide last month.

During a dinner convo about the therapy sessions Taylor blurts out, "We're knee-deep into so much psycho-therapy that I'm sick of myself."

Things got really heated when Lisa Vanderpump's husband said, "If I had to go to see a therapist to make my marriage better, I would feel weak."

So, we gotta ask ...

Bravo aired a 4-minute segment prior to the episode ... where the entire cast -- minus Taylor -- talked about how Russell's death has affected them (video below).

The man is dead. Can't defend himself. She has not shown one ounce of proof of anything she claims.

Therapy CAN save marriages if a counselor can get to the couple before the gold-digging wife spends a millionaire into the poor house and destroys his sanity until he commits suicide

When a human being takes their own live, it is because they feel that they are alone even though they have their family and friends around her/him. The depression is too much and they cannot face certain consequences. I feel sorry for Taylor, Russel's children and his Family.
God Bless You All.

So much for BravoTV caring about people, hell the body might still be warm...granted by that he just got cremated...Andy and BravoTV, when ratings mean more than anything else.
PS that staff meeting the day after was ALL about leveraging the videos and legal liability. Everyone had to sign a new NDA on the production side because Andy was sweating balls he was going to be sued.

i don't think it matters whether that scene was shot before russells suicide. the point is taylor went on a show knowing her marital and financial problems would be aired to millions of people with no regard to her and russells daughter or his other children for her own 15 minutes and financial gain. the husbands nor the children are paid to appear on any of the housewives shows only the housewives are payed. taylor was the only one that would gain from doing the show not her husband or the child they have.

"I have always loved Lisa Vanderpump and thought she was so elegant. I for one found her husband's comment offensive and her attitude when Kyle said Taylor was upset "she said what, why"? I never realized she was so callous and insensitive."
.
I have to disagree. Lisa's husband was talking about how HE would feel if had to go to therapy. He wasn't saying that Taylor and/or Russell were weak. But Taylor being Taylor with her need to twist everything to be about her, turned the comment into something that it was not. Lisa sees right through Taylor's manipulative, victim mentality and she has no problem calling her on it. I say good for Lisa!

She's trying to ac***ulate a whole bunch of sympathy now, because down the road she will be exposed for ripping off investors and other business associates.

She admits she's sick of therapy with a man she filed for divorce from, claiming he verbally and physically abused her, but let someone make a personal comment, which is all Lisa's husband was doing, and out come Taylor's acting lessons and water works. If that man was loaded, she would still be married to him. By the way, hasn't' she had three or four names in the last few years??? And the little confab about the dearly departed - nobody had a good word to say about him all last year, yet now......

WHY was Lisa Vanderpimps husband even THERE? No other
women brought their husbands. He is as GAY as they
come, along with that GAY dog Jiggy...WHO brings their
dog to a dinner party, and lets him lick out of their
wine glass, which Adrienne said cost $550 EACH? That
is disgusting. He is rude, and ignorant, and it appears
Lisa is becoming a back stabbing witch. She is classless,
and thinks she is above everyone just because she has
money. She needs to leave that dog home! (and Jiggy too).
