TaylorArmstrongMoneyForInterview230.jpgTaylor Armstrong's interview with Entertainment Tonight, her first since estranged husband Russell's August suicide, reportedly cost a pretty penny.

Taylor made $125,000 for the sit-down, says The New York Post.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star sold photos of herself in a hospital with eye injuries to the outlet, and gave an interview (which airs Tuesday.)

Russell's family has criticized Taylor for the interview, but her Housewives co-stars are defending her.

They argue that Russell, who had declared bankruptcy in the past and was being sued for millions at the time of his death, left Taylor in a "financial mess."

Taylor and Russell have a daughter, Kennedy, 5.
