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).

I am glad that British guy told it like it is, if your marriage is in trouble it means one of the spouse has failed, you can't force someone to love you. A therapist cannot change how you feel about the person you married.

common sense    

therapy can't save marriages if you're in love then you're in love, what is a therapist going to tell you is he/she going to force you to love someone?

Taylor is a headgame playing, wacko- she is so ugly on the outside and the inside. She flaunted money and looks like an anorexic, muppet. Her husband was lucky to have gotten rid of her. All of the woman on that show last night were acting like teen aged divas that should go back to the broke hometown that they came from. Especially Camille, she is a witch. The 2 sisters, uhg, worse than any of them. Maloof is getting on my last nerve with her nagging ways. They all should be ashamed.

MMRGlobal CEO, Lorsch said. "MMR gave the Armstrongs an opportunity to quietly remove themselves from the Company and end any dispute in 2007. All they had to do was identify the people that invested with them, thinking they were investing in MyMedicalRecords.com.
======================================
The above article and a subsequent one following Russell's death can be found over at marke****ch.com, who is owned by The Wall Street Journal.
In a nut shlee, they're going forward with the lawsuit against Taylor for breaching their previously agreed to settlement. I think his suicide is more complicated than it seems at the moment and as time goes on and these investments are revealed, it will start to make more sense and it will make Taylor look equally as bad as Russell if he were alive.

Therapy can be good for bringing a third party in to give an unbiased opinion. However, everyone's forgetting that he severely beat his wife. And there's only so much that therapy can do, when she should be as far away from him as possible.

Shana the scammer better hope an investigation into the deaths of her husband and his partner doesn't happen. Then she will be knee deep in what she deserves to be knee deep in.

The child support and alimony payments motivate women to divorce rather than reconcile. Save your money on that "therapy" and hire a damn good attorney while you can!

Lisa Vanderpump's husband only reluctantly got involved in a conversation when he was specifically asked why "men" don't favor couples therapy. He was repeatedly pressed to talk about specifically how he'd feel if his own marriage to Lisa was going off the rails. While the women clucked because he didn't agree with them, they certainly didn't respect his own feelings for his own marriage. Worse, as soon he answered, Taylor Armstrong immediately focussed the evening on herself, fleeing the table, going off to the lady's room and weeping that she herself had been insulted, that she herself had been offended, taking center stage. This is what seemed in such bad taste to me --that if Bravo faked this "confrontation," all they did was to make a woman look like a manipulative self-centered whiner in a show broadcast only weeks after her husband killed himself while involved in a divorce with her.

Has there been an uglier woman to ever walk the earth? Taylor is a completely self-absorbed,conniving golddigger who doesn't care two whits about her marriage, her daughter or anyone other than herself. I applaud Ken and Lisa they are the only two on this train wreck with any class.
