Taylor Armstrong will be giving her first TV interview since her estranged husband Russell's suicide to Entertainment Tonight, after being unable to come to an agreement with Barbara Walters, is exclusively reporting.

Walters had been Taylor's first choice for the interview, but there were simply too many hurdles that the veteran journalist refused to comply with. "Taylor had a list of demands that Walters just wasn't willing to go along with. Taylor didn't want to be grilled about her participation on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills possibly contributing to Russell's suicide. She didn't want to be put on the hot seat regarding her spending habits. In the end, Entertainment Tonight was able to come to an agreement with Taylor that she was extremely comfortable with," a source close to the situation tells us.

Taylor is now "beginning the process of dealing with probate and tax issues that she is now facing after Russell's suicide. Russell left no will behind. Taylor is going to have to find a job in the very near future, beyond her work on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," the insider tells us.

Entertainment Tonight showed pictures of a badly beaten Taylor from a hospital bed on the show Monday night.
