Taylor Armstrong told her estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, that she admitted he had physically abusing her, as cameras rolled for the Bravo hit television show, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Taylor was confronted by her fellow housewives about their concerns for her, and she finally admitted that she was in a physically abusive relationship.
Taylor told Russell several weeks after she filed for divorce that she had made the stunning revelation for the Bravo cameras.
"Russell was told by Taylor that she had said on camera that he had hit her on numerous occasions in the past. Russell was naturally upset that Taylor chose to reveal this publicly, but he felt there was nothing he could do about it. Russell learned about this approximately a month and a half before his suicide," the source tells RadarOnline.com.
Bravo had planned on airing the showdown as the season finale of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It's unclear if Bravo will still air it after Russell's shocking suicide.
Bravo didn't immediately respond for comment on this story.
