Photos Of Battered ‘Real Housewife’ Taylor Armstrong Released (Photos)

It has been a few weeks since the suicide of Russell Armstrong, now photos of his wife and ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ star Taylor Armstrong have been released showing her beaten and bruised in a hospital bed.

Entertainment Tonight obtained the disturbing images that were taken by a friend while Taylor was getting surgery for the injuries on her face.

Reportedly, Russell Armstrong was physically abusive and was the cause of the horrendous marks on Taylors face.

The exact date that these photos were taken is not entirely known, but it was reported that before Bravo began shooting season two of the show, filming had to be delayed for weeks because Taylor had to get surgery on her face after she had been beaten up.

ET has a special investigation airing tonight that will delve deeper into the story of this battered housewife.

Take a look at the rest of the photos below. (Warning: the photos are disturbing)
