Taylor Armstrong

I Got Screwed Over

My $250k Engagement Ring

EXCLUSIVE

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.

this woman really got the Sh*tEnd of the Stick. Noone believed her when she was desperately begging for some type of help. She displayed her F*cked up life all over national television and her husband ends up hanging from a rope. This is why i never wish for fame. i rather be broke with a small life than that type of hell.

Why would she want the ring anyway? I was given to her by a prick that beat her and made wrong choices financially. If it helps eliminate the financial debt her husband acquired then it should be a no brainier, that's if she has a brain left after her beat downs.

I don't think their gonna get jack for it. In pieces it might be worth a few bucks, but that thing is cursed. Who would want a ring worn by that hag and given to her by a suicidal psychopath? Additionally, it's ugly, outdated and tacky.

No way that ring is worth $250k. According to the tag it is an S11...not flawless and is not a deep yellow. As with anythng connected with the lying Traylor, you discount it about 90% and get to something resembling its true value.
