Taylor Armstrong leaving the Coupa Cafe in Beverly Hills
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
star Taylor Armstrong's husband Russell infamous committed suicide
in August. Though Taylor and him split up a month before his death (he liked to hit her, and Taylor even made $125k
selling one of the abuse photos), she was still pretty broken up about it. Well at least she was until earlier this month when she hooked up with *shudders* another reality star. From the Daily Mail
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong is said to have started dating a fellow reality TV star. The 40-year-old has been linked to Most Eligible Dallas heartthrob Matt Nordgren. The two were spotted at two separate parties in his Texas hometown last weekend, according to America's InTouch magazine.
"He wanted her to feel at home in Dallas," a source tells the publication, adding that the two were openly holding hands at both a Top Chef and an MTV party.
Why is this guy even bothering with Taylor? Newsflash Matt: you're on T.V. You're supposed to be banging chicks that are super-young, not super-menopausal. Besides, if this guy really wanted to sleep with a woman whose face had taken so many shots it could no longer move, he should have just dated one of Peter North's sloppy seconds.*13 Taylor Armstrong pictures total in the gallery:

"I am so broke up about the suicide of my estranged husband/father of my children. I'm really having a hard time dealing with the grief . . . hey, um, do you want to buy a picture of my face after he hit me one time?" From the New York Post
Taylor Armstrong raked in up to $125,000 for the sale of a picture she says was snapped after a brutal beating by her late husband, Russell. The “Real Housewives” star sold the picture -- showing her lying in bed with a gruesome black eye -- to “Entertainment Tonight,” which aired it last week to tease an upcoming interview with Armstrong, the first since Russell’s suicide a month ago. “Most shows that were offered the picture did not want to pay anywhere close to that,” says a source who pegs the amount of Taylor’s haul as “definitely six figures.” “ET” licensed the shot and will air its interview between Armstrong and Nancy O’Dell on Tuesday.
In all seriousness, turning some of these loudmouthed housewives' faces into punching bags is kind of alright in my book. Don't get me wrong, hitting a lady is cowardly and rarely acceptable. Hitting a self-entitled tramp that spreads her legs for money and thinks that her plastic tits makes her better than you . . . meh, lets just say that, unlike Taylor's husband, I wouldn't get all choked up about it. *10 Taylor Armstrong pictures total in the gallery:

Russell Armstrong - famous for being the husband of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
"star" Taylor Armstrong - killed himself last night at a friend's house on Mulholland Drive in L.A. He was 47. Just a month ago, Taylor filed for divorce from Russell and a few stories were leaked [by her] that he was abusing her both physically and emotionally. In other words, this suicide is completely her fault. From TMZ
Our sources say Armstrong hanged himself. He was found hanging in his bedroom on Mulholland Drive. We're told L.A. City Fire Department arrived at his home and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM Monday. Sources say a roommate found Russell and called 911.
We're told authorities have not found a suicide note ... no drugs or alcohol were found in the bedroom where Russell died. He was fully clothed when his body was discovered.
I think this goes without saying, but killing yourself is a bit extreme. People would have eventually
forgotten that he was on a reality show . . .*8 Russell Armstrong pictures total in the gallery:
