“A devastating time,” is how Russell Armstrong is describing his split from Taylor Armstrong who filed divorce on Friday.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells RumorFix exclusively, “We had a wonderful marriage and I don’t want you to get the impression that Taylor and I are bitter enemies — we’re not.” He goes on to say, “We have a beautiful five-year-old daughter who we both love.”
Viewers of the reality show know that the couple has been going through counseling to deal with their marital issues. “The pressure of being in the TV spotlight was pretty overwhelming,” he tells RumorFix. “It took our manageable problems and made them worse.”
Taylor and Russell have been married for six years. Taylor is citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split, and is asking for joint custody of their daughter. Russell says he, of course, will provide child support.
“We are very supportive of each other and love each other. I will support her as best an I can moving forward.”
Now that’s a class act!
