bookarmstrong101911_07_X17.jpgAfter suffering though the painful loss of her ex-husband Russell last summer, Taylor Armstrong has just signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster which will follow the reality star's turbulent life thus far.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star will share photos and details of the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex, who committed suicide in the bedroom of a friends Mulholland Drive home on August 15.

The memoir will recount not only Taylor's own personal experiences with abuse, but also highlight several celebrities who have been involved in similar domestic situations.

Armstrong is hoping the book will help educate other victims of domestic violence -- she filed for divorce in July, citing domestic abuse.

The yet-untitled book is set to hit shelves on Feb. 7.
