Taylor Armstrong’s been everywhere lately and I bet she isn’t mad about it either. Taylor spoke to LAtimes to discuss her book and talks about how she ‘misses and longs for Russell.’ Taylor says she understands why people think she’s doing this for money. She says, “I know how it looks. If I didn’t think this would make a difference, I wouldn’t be doing it. Trust me, you don’t make that much money off a book.”
Taylor says she had separated from Russell and that she originally planned to write the book before his death, but he did not know it, “He did know, though, that the extent of the abuse would likely come out in the press. I spent a couple of days in Cedars-Sinai after [the eye] incident. There were nurses around. Plenty of people saw me in the operating room. The odds of keeping that under wraps, I mean, come on. He absolutely knew it was all going to come out. That was really something he was dreading.”
Taylor adds, “One of Russell’s big concerns, which he would bring up constantly after my eye incident, is, ‘Do you think the D.A. could press charges against me and put me in jail whether you press charges or not?’ I hate to say it, I would have wanted to protect him from that.”
Now that Russell has committed suicide, Taylor finds herself in a $1.5 million fraud lawsuit in which MyMedicalRecords.com claims the couple conned investors. So what did Taylor have to say about that?
“I scratch my head about the finance stuff all the time. I’m still trying to pick up the pieces of the mess that was left behind. I have days when I’m in a ball, where I just sit and stare at the wall and just cry. ... I have every emotion in the world. I have incredible sadness for Russell. I miss him, I long for him. But I’m angry with him for leaving this mess for me to clean up. If there’s a Season 3, I think it’s important to see what happens next. I’m still working on myself. And I have to say for the first time in my life, I’m OK being alone. Every little thing that I thought was going to be so horrible, really hasn’t been. I think for a Season 3 it would be nice for people to see the progression … and the lows too, because it’s certainly not all good days.”
OBVIOUSLY there is going to be a season 3! We just don’t know if you’ll be in it and to be honest, I’m hoping Taylor isn’t in it. Taylor claims she was writing a tell-all book while he was alive but what happened to being ‘scared for her life.’ I just dont understand Taylor.
