It turns out that Taylor Armstrong did not file for divorce from Russell Armstrong for abusing her or hitting her but rather in an attempt to stay on the television show. Producers were tired of Russell Armstrong threatening to sue them for airing footage of the domestic abuse allegations without any real proof and Bravo decided to pull the plug on the couple for any future seasons. Well, Taylor could not have that. I mean the woman needs fame. So, she filed for divorce. That way she keeps that nice and steady Bravo paycheck and she can look like the victim. Then, one month later Russell killed himself so Taylor could really look like the victim and say whatever she wanted to say about the guy.
