Taylor Armstrong, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will most likely give her first interview in the wake of her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong's suicide, to veteran TV reporter and interviewer, Barbara Walters, is exclusively reporting.

A source close to the situation says that Taylor has been besieged by media outlets trying to snag the first interview, and although she is more than willing to sit down and tell-all, when the time is right, it’s important to her that she can trust the person interviewing her.

"Taylor would likely feel the most comfortable with Barbara Walters,” the source says. “Taylor expects to be asked the tough questions, and will answer them.

“The interview will most likely happen in the next month or so, and not sooner. Taylor needs a bit more time before she is ready to talk about the suicide.”

Meanwhile, Taylor is trying hard to put back the pieces of her shattered life following the gruesome discovery of Russell’s body, hanging at a friend’s home on August 15.

Taylor and Russell’s only child, Kennedy, 5, has been hit hard by the death of her father, but as exclusively reported Taylor has decided it’s important for her daughter to try and move on, and the little girl will be starting kindergarten next week.

"Kennedy is very, very excited about starting school,” a source close to the situation tells “It's a prestigious school, and protected so Taylor knows that Kennedy will be okay. Taylor has been advised that the best thing for Kennedy right now, is for her to start school. Taylor knows some of the other parents and thinks this is the best thing she can do for Kennedy at this time.
