Armstrong tells KTLA that she was in “an abusive relationship for six years,” and the presence –or absence — of cameras would not have altered that “reality.” She also calls the show her “saving grace” and says she and her 5-year-old daughter, Kennedy, would likely have fallen victim to domestic violence, had it not been for the program.
“If the cameras were not in my life, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t be sitting here today because a lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide versus just suicide.” Armstrong says she spent five weeks in her house after her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, 47, committed suicide.
Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce in July, claiming Russell physically abused her.
She says she has a titanium implant holding her right eye up as a result of the alleged violence. Armstrong says the show gave her the platform to help other women in similar situations.
