Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

In addition to my Monday night reality TV line up, here comes last night's episode of the RHOBH. Lisa's dinner party at her new restaurant SUR was a mad house. First, Brandi's ex husband's girlfriend was there. Then Paul's ex girlfriend was there. Then, the unthinkable happened.....Cedric (Lisa's ex house guest) showed up. After that whole ordeal at last season's reunion, he had the nerve to show up. I hate when people do things to you, then fake a civilized return to make you look like the bad guy when you kick them out. Anyway, Kim and her boyfriend were just awful. She's off her rocker and I just can't stand him. He is not good looking at all, plus I can't stand the sound of his voice. Like Kim (and most women), we have gone out with guys that are not good for us out of desperation and loneliness. However, Kim doesn't need him especially with all the family she has. He's controlling, condescending, and not pleasant at all.

And then there is Taylor and her shrink. With all the tom foolery going on in this episode, this is when things got serious. Taylor shows up, with a black eye under her concealer. She decides to sit the ladies down with her shrink to discuss her marriage and the mistakes she has made. Immediately, Adrienne and Camille say how her husband filed a lawsuit and sent threatening emails, etc. Taylor admitted that she and Russel got into a physical fight resulting in her black eye (and previous broken jaw). She also apologized and asked her friends to be there for her. As an amazing group of friends, they all gave Taylor their word that they would be there for her no matter what.

Russel Armstrong (Taylor's ex husband) hung himself after Taylor filed for divorce. My perception of his hanging is that if Taylor was never on a reality TV show announcing to millions of viewers about his abuse, he would have never hung himself. Which means, he didn't kill himself because of the guilt of hurting his wife; he killed himself because his abusive ways were now exposed to the public. She was married to him for 6 years.....6 YEARS!!! Now, I am about to be extremely honest. I was in a verbally and physically abusive relationship for 8 weeks, and it was (and is still) the worst nightmare of my life. How Taylor managed to have a child with him, and "smile for the camera" with him for so long boggles my mind. In all honesty, I feel like every abuser should kill themselves, especially to spare the abused from getting fed up and one day killing them. I wouldn't wish what happened to Taylor on anyone, truly. I felt so bad for her watching the show because I can only imagine what she's going through especially with her young daughter.

Listen, if you are in a similar situation or know anyone that is, please please please get out!!! Being alone is a million times better than getting cussed out and beat up everyday.
