Taylor Armstrong stepped out for a solo shopping trip looking the furthest thing from a Housewife in a pair of tight red pants, sky high Christian Louboutins, and a leopard-print clutch while at the posh Westfield Shopping Center in Century City, on Monday afternoon.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently released the tell-all book, "Hiding from Reality," that centers on the alleged abuse she suffered from her late husband, Russell Armstrong -- and now she's ready to play relationship therapist!

In a new interview with Life & Style, the reality star offered some words of advice to troubled ex-pair, Chris Brown and Rihanna. "I hope they'll make a statement about what transpired over the past three years that makes it safe for them to be around each other now," said Taylor. "If someone has slapped you, shoved you or pushed you, things will always escalate. He needs to come out and say, 'I did something really wrong, and let me tell you what I've done since then to be a better person."

She added, "This is a real opportunity for him to step up and be a man."
