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.

I cannot find the listing for this ring on eBay. I would love to 'watch it' and see what the final selling price is. And I agree with the others. Joint assests pay off joint debts. Russell took the easy way out and left her out to dry.

She didn't get screwed over. She's lucky to have a ring to make any deals with! And never think of passing things on to your kids. They don't appreciate them the way you did. Fashions change, and they want to acquire things on their own. They want to make their own choices.

She wanted to pass on the ring that her abusive husband gave her? Hello? It was not a fairy tale marriage, with loving memories behind it. Why would you want to give that to her? Crazy!!

Unless SHE signed her name to the do***ents that her deceased husband made deals with, SHE should not have to pay back HIS debts. Just because you're married to someone, doesn't mean the other party knew about the debt or even profited from the debt. She should not have to give up any property that was hers - which includes the ring.

She makes me sick - greed at a new high. She's done nothing but trash the poor man since he died and suddenly this ring from him is so important. Greedy.

This is just a crazy story! I dug a little deeper and realized that Robert Lorsch of MMR's wife is a washed up ex PORN "STAR" who was the "target" of a many a men on film! THIS STORY GETS CRAZIER and CRAZIER At least she knows a DICK when she sees one! I read she is the "face" of MMR" What is this? Is this true? What country is this. This all seems WRONG! Anyone know anything about this? Would love to to the "truth" that lies with Kira!
