It's been a very emotional year for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong, and now she's finally ready to release her painful untold story.
Taylor has just released the cover for her upcoming memoir, Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss and Finding the Courage Within, highlights the domestic abuse she suffered -- photos included -- at the hands of her late husband, Russell Armstrong.
The reality star tells People on the message of her first book:
- "My book takes readers behind the glamour of Beverly Hills to show them the terrible violence I suffered, and the slow and painful process of rebuilding my shattered life. I want readers in abusive relationships to learn from my suffering and use my book to help them find their own courage within."
Armstrong filed from divorce from her late husband in July citing domestic abuse -- he tragically committed suicide just one month later.
The memoir hits shelves on Feb. 7.
