I’ll probably regret this post as I am actively avoiding the Taylor Armstrong Circus, but I ran across this series of comments on a Perez Hilton post by someone named “Just Kelly”. They were posted on January 26th around midnight. They seem to read true to me. At least her truth as she knows it. I know y’all are interested and tweeting away about her book promotions today, so here they are without commentary…
Update: I’ve gotten a couple of emails saying that Kelly did in fact date Russell. I believe it.
Finally someone is speaking the truth… Thank You. I never believed for a minute the insane allegations she made about him or the abuse. I have voiced that many times and never backed down, no matter what the backlash was that came my way….I knew she was full of it, and held my ground. How do I know this? Because I lived with Russell for the year prior to him meeting Taylor….When I left him and and moved back to Texas after I caught him with another woman that was it for me. Russ loved the ladies…Granted, he did his best to get me back, and even flew to Dallas to attend a charity event with me in hopes I would return back to LA with him…I refused. Two months later he called and told me he had met someone and I was happy for him. Any intimate feelings I had for him were gone, but I did wish him the best. Another month past and I received a call letting me know she was pregnant…I again, wished him well… con’t
Read the rest after the jump…
Now, let’s look at the facts, you are going to tell me he broke her jaw, beat her so violently on numerous occasions that she couldn’t function, yet never left a bruise? IN 6 YEARS! ~ No way. His son’s never witnessed it, the camera crews never witnessed it, nor did ANYONE else. Even those living under the same roof. And let’s not forget, there were never any police reports or medical records to substantiate her claims. Sure, she has her “Bruised eye photo’s”, but I find it funny how the media never shed light on the lasik surgery she had at the same time (early July) the photo’s surfaced. Google “Lasik Surgery Bruising” and your mouth will drop, the images are identical to what she claims to be abuse from Russell and what we saw at the “therapy session” at SUR. Let’s not forget, it was only when she was being questioned about the abuse that she showed up with the bruise. After 6 years of him never leaving a mark on her body and being turned away from Kyles party for accusations of abuse you honestly think he went home and gave her a left hook to the face? Come on people, open your eyes !
Understand, he loved being a Dad. When it came to his children he was an outstanding Father. They never wanted for anything and due to the circumstances with the Mothers of his boys we had them every other weekend. During those visits, the boys had free reign to eat whatever they wanted and were spoiled rotten…. When I heard her state that he “Grabbed her by the neck, LIFTED her up against the wall and told her he would kill her if she ever served his children a meal without a vegetable” actually made me laugh out loud. All 5’9″ of him? ha.. So, that is complete and utter BS. Taylor is not a petite woman… con’t
Look, I will be the first to admit he was no angel. He loved to live the jet-set lifestyle and never settled for anything but the best. But, he was not physically abusive in any way, shape or form to me. Our relationship was tumultuous, and we had some over the top arguments, but he NEVER raised a hand to me…. I gotta give it to her though, the woman is good, very good. When it comes to manipulation and trying to keep the focus on her as much as possible she wrote the book (no pun intended). I feel she is a sociopath that will stop at nothing to get what she wants. That is the scariest part of it all… con’t
Yes, she is a documented con artist, a fraud and actually presented herself as an heir to the Ford Motorcar family to gain investments from numerous well to do Florida businessmen. Which is all documented and she is in litigation for at this very moment…In regards to the show, last April I had business dealings in LA. I adore Lisa and decided to have lunch at Villa Blanca. She was there. She came over to the table and I of course, gushed about how wonderful she was and let her know I was Russell’s ex. She asked me point blank “Did he abuse you as well?” That totally caught me off guard…I said,”What? Russell? No… He could be an ass, but he never abused me physically if that is what your asking” I was completely taken aback, and realized at that moment what was about to take place…It was a horrible feeling…con’t
When the season began and I watched it all unfold, I was disgusted. Yes, her cast mates had a storyline to keep viewers interested and ratings soared. Now, they don’t. So their true feeling are beginning to surface. I applaud Camille for calling her out and as soon as I saw the limo ride where he said “What she (Camille)is saying is an out and out LIE”, I knew he was being truthful. Taylor was a deer in headlights and could not get Russ out of there quick enough when Kyle said “Camille was only repeating what Taylor has told all of us”. He was floored… My heart broke for him because he didn’t deserve it. We are talking about a man that knew the legal system like the back of his hand. He had been sued more times than you could shake a stick at…He NEVER would have threatened a law suit against Camille unless he knew, without a shadow of a doubt he would win…Problem was, he didn’t know it was his wife that was filling these women’s heads with lies and stories to gain attention for her own selfish motives….con’t
I have watched the reunion previews and one image stays in my mind. There is a part where Andy asks her about the suicide and makes reference to him possibly being murdered. (Something I have felt and even stated). The grin she displays on her face, gave me the chills. When someone hangs themselves they are not bruised down one side of their body, much less, able to touch the floor, which Russ was able to do…Then we can go back to the Dr.Phil interview where he asked her about a life insurance policy and you physically see her body language change. Her comment after that was “He said we would be taken care of if he passed away” and Dr.Phil said “Were you” and you could then hear the anger in her voice when she responded “No”. It was beyond disturbing… Her story does not add up, her lies outweigh her truths and my suggestion to anyone associated with her would be to run as far away from her as possible. She is dangerous and in my opinion, evil walking. I could go on for days with facts, photographs and more proving this woman “Shana Hughes” is a ticking time bomb. I am just grateful someone finally spoke up in their inner circle to show her true colors… Rest in Peace Russ, you will be justified.
