Taylor Armstrong is giving Bethenny Frankel a run for her money.
She’s arguably the most controversial Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, there’s even talk that she’s up for the next Dancing with the Stars — and now she’s writing a book!
RumorFix has confirmed Taylor is penning a memoir about her tumultuous marriage to Russell Armstrong.
She tells ET, “The writing that I’ve done has been incredibly cathartic for me, just getting my thoughts out on paper.”
Taylor, who says she was a victim of domestic abuse, hopes that the book helps other victims. “I think the tragedy has allowed me to write even more effectively because now that the person that I struggled with in an unhealthy relationship is completely out of my life,” she says. “I’m able to be very objective about how unhealthy our relationship was and what we each brought into the relationship and I feel that distance, although it’s been incredibly painful, has also given me new insight into our situation.”
The book, published by Simon & Schuster’s Galley Books, is coming out in February 2012.
