She talks about an incident where Russell was screaming at her while their daughter, Kennedy was in the bed with her. “Russell stormed in and started screaming ‘F*** you. Get the f*** out of my life. “Your mom’s a whore, your mom’s a b****.”
Taylor mentions that when she went to Pandora’s bachelorette party, Russell accused her of sleeping with a Chippendale’s dancer (Photo below is Taylor with one of the dancers)
She accusses Russell of hitting her so hard that she ended up in the hospital.
“The pain was excruciating. I could tell that something was very wrong with my vision. This whole time Russell was glaring at me. ‘You’re so dramatic,’ he said. “You’re fine.’”
She said that the injury revealed that 40 percent of the bone that supports the eye had been fractured and that she would need reconstructive surgery and that there was also a risk that she would suffer a permanently sunken eye for the rest of her life following surgery. This was the event that she says finally was enough to “snap me out of the spell Russell had over me.”
Taylor said that Russell was abusive for years, and after their daughter Kennedy was born things got worse “He would grab my hair and bang my head against the side of the car between the two doors, or against the glass of the passenger-side window while he was driving, because it made his point to me but didn’t leave a visible mark.”
She said she tried to fight back, but to no avail. Russell told her: “Don’t ever do that again because I almost killed you. One of these days, I’m afraid I’m going to kill you.”
Just let the man rest in peace! It’s sad that she could write a book about her daughters dead father while we don’t even get to hear his side. I’m sure he abused her but I do have my doubts on some of the things she says. If Bravo knew about this “black eye” how come they didn’t report Russell? Or do anything about it! I really truly hope she doesn’t get asked to be on season 3. Thoughts?
