Taylor Armstrong

I Got Screwed Over

My $250k Engagement Ring

5/30/2012 4:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Armstrong Engagement Ring listed on eBay

Turns out "Real Houswives of Beverly Hills" start Taylor Armstrong is NOT selling her engagement ring on eBay -- the company that sued her is selling it, because Taylor surrendered the bling to get out from under a huge legal mess.

The ring her deceased husband Russell Armstrong gave Taylor was placed on the auction block this morning. 

Now here's what we know ... Taylor and Russell were sued by investors who claimed Russell fleeced them out of millions of dollars.  The case settled, but the Armstrongs didn't pay.  So the investors went after them again -- this time with a vengeance. 

Since Russell committed suicide, Taylor has now struck a new settlement deal with the investors to make the whole thing go away. The new deal was struck yesterday, which requires Taylor to pay an undisclosed amount of money to the investors and fork over a bunch of personal property -- INCLUDING THE ENGAGEMENT RING.

So the investors are the ones who put the ring on eBay and hope to fetch a quarter of a million bucks.

Sources close to Taylor tell us she's really pissed and feels she's been backed into a corner because of Russell's misdeeds.  She wanted to fight, but can't afford the legal war.

Taylor wanted to pass the ring on to her daughter when she got married.

Don't cry for me Beverly Hills. She knew about Russell's "misdeeds." She was Bonnie to his Clyde. She called herself "Ford" and posed as a member of the Ford auto family to trick investors. Her name is all over the do***ents or else AND the accounts filled with ill-gotten cash, that's why she's paying it back.

Ya, Taylor, you got screwed didja? Like all those people YOU screwed (figuratively please) with your grifting pre-and during during Russell? Karma's a b....and hopefully there is more karma to come. Would love to know what else she had to give up - designer clothes she got for free?
Just wish this witch would disappear forever. I still like Angelina's ring better!

"...she's really pissed and feels she's been backed into a corner because of Russell's misdeeds. She wanted to fight, but can't afford the legal war."

This is what happens when you marry for money, and don't have your own to fight legal things like this when they leave you for another woman or in this case, die on you. I don't get or understand women like this. Glad my dad taught me as a teen to always have my own because you just never know. Happy early, early Father's Day!!! BTW, pretty ring though.

The b*tch still thinks she's entitled to keep that ring. Sounds like they garnished her RHOBH wages so now she has to embarrass herself for next to nothing.

I can't decide if this girl is attractive or unattractive. She has some unusual features.

That aside... pay your debts chica.

Why shouldn't Taylor have to fork over the goods she purchased with the scammed funds? Taylor is still a grifter and scamming people.

Taylor Armstrong is a clown of a human being. She's ridiculous. Without even going into her role in Russell's death, why would she ever think that she ought to keep a quarter of a million dollar piece of loot - especially since it would have been paid for through what she wants everyone to know was their scamming of others. Like any MAFIA WIFE, you have to give up the mink coat and flashy car, honey, when its ill-gained booty. And she was his WIFE. She knew how much money they had or didn't have. She was involved in the purchase of that ring. She's as criminal as Russell in that way. She knew there was nothing and then suddenly accepts a $250,000 ring? Did she think she was Liz Taylor suddenly? She's delusional on all levels and mostly about her own role in the crimes, lies, death and greed upon which her entire life & marriage were built.
