Taylor Armstrong Says She’s Healed From Ex-Husband Russell’s Suicide: ‘I Feel At Peace’


RadarOnline.com:
It’s been almost four years since Taylor Armstrong’s ex-husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is finally putting distance between her past life and her new, happy one. The reality blonde opened up to RadarOnline.com about how she’s moving on in an intimate and revealing new interview.

“I feel at peace,” Armstrong tells Radar exclusively. “When we go through something tragic or frightening, I believe that you find a strength inside of yourself that you didn’t know that you had.”

Armstrong, who survived domestic abuse in her first marriage, is now getting ready to celebrate her one-year anniversary with her new husband, John Bluher, on April 4.

“John and I are best friends,” Armstrong says. “He’s the person I could spend every minute with and never get tired or never feel like I need some alone time.”

Her new family unit has also provided a stable life for her 9-year-old daughter, Kennedy.

“John and Kennedy have a really beautiful relationship,” Armstrong says. “Now, Kennedy gets to see a mutually respectful relationship where John cherishes and respects me and vice versa. I feel like I’m getting a chance through my marriage with John to hopefully repair some of the damage that could have been done.”

But despite the turmoil in their past life, Armstrong still does try to keep a communication open with Kennedy about her father.

“I was advised by a child psychologist to bring him up on occasion and not to give her the impression that people just disappear in the world and then you never speak about them again,” Armstrong explains. “We try to keep that dialogue going whenever there is an open door just to kind of check in and make sure that she’s doing okay.”
