Even though ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ stars are reportedly ‘disgusted’ by Taylor Armstrong’s tell all book, Russell’s nephew tells HollywoodLife.com he thinks it’s an inspiration to women

She may act crazy on the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but in real life, Taylor Armstrong has been a supportive and loving aunt to her late husband Russell Armstrong‘s 19-year-old nephew, Austin Kelsoe. In fact, he tells HollywoodLife.com he isn’t concerned about his aunt’s “tell all book” that has the rest of her friends up in arms.

“I was not aware Taylor was going to write a book, however, she has been such a kind-hearted, supportive, aunt throughout all that has happened,” Austin says. “I trust that her intentions are not to degrade my uncle, but rather, to help other women in similar situations regarding their relationships.”

Unfortunately, Taylor’s friends didn’t have the same positive reaction to her autobiographical book.

A source close to the situation told us, “When Taylor announced she was going to write a book about her supposed abusive relationship with her husband everyone thought it was just disgusting. It’s just too soon and the cast just thinks this speaks volumes about who Taylor is at heart.”

What do YOU think? Is Taylor’s book appropriate or is it too soon? Sound off below!

I am amazed to see how many women just turn their heads to the abuse of other women. As a gender I hope that we can find ways to protect each other from abuse instead of identifying with the abuser. I see a lot of passive aggressive, jealous and catty lil girls commenting here. I hope you never really know what its like to be abused by someone you adore. SO WHAT IF SHE WROTE A BOOK…ITS HER LIFE. She makes a living as a reality star and has a child to take care of. Why are women so overly critical and jealous of other women? If we weren’t that way, we’d be the master gender.

Why could they not have divorced? Did she really have the nerve to say that she couldn’t feel safe until he died? what a horrible person you are Taylor. You probably pushed him to it, all of it. Your behaviour on the show is just proof of your lack of control and your disgusting elementary school behaviour. I hope all the girls have good sense enough to stay away from you (except for Kyle, she thrives on being center of attention, so stay with her).

It seems very early to be writing a tell-all, but then if she’s been living in a violent, abusive relationship for all this time then that would account for a lot of the drinking and unhinged behaviour. There have been scientific studies (I shudder to think how) that prove that if an animal is hurt regularly it learns to deal with it, to manage to cope. Those that are harmed randomly, never knowing when or where it’s coming from, basically lose it. The study has been used to explain why some abused women finally fall apart and kill their abusers. Then again, there are other ways to fall apart. We may have been watching it happen. She may have had this story in her for years now.

Let’s just wait and see.

PROOF. Police records and all. What her child is going to think of all this. Why do this now? No retaliation from her husband! If it’s the truth, you’d better be able to prove it with NO DOUBTS. Thousands of women and men have been abused in relationships. She’s not one that will “Help” them. A book isn’t hope, freinds/family/group and more is HELP. PROOF !!! Where is all of it???

I think Taylor needs to be put in a crazy house and then go to rehab.. She seems to a lot of us to be a uncontrollable drinker..She definately can’t handle her liquior.That’s apparent to anybody who watches the show. Looks to me like she’s on a pity party..

her alcohol issues (not being able to handle it) are probably due to the fact that she doesn’t eat and she’s on drugs whose effects are exascerbated by the booze.

All I can say is the wrong person committed suicide! Taylor is a pathetic excuse for a person!

What a mature young boy. He has chosen to take the high road and I am sure his Uncle Russell is proud of him! He is a lot more mature than all those housewives, that’s for sure!
