A preview for Taylor Armstrong's ET interview has been released -- her first interview since estranged husband Russell's suicide about a month ago.
In the interview, which airs Tuesday night, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member details abuse by Russell during their marriage, saying:
- "He grabbed me by the neck and shoved me up against the wall and he said, 'If you ever make my children a pizza without a vegetable again, I'll kill you.' He would grab me by one side of the hair on my head and bang the other side against the car. He would say to me, 'Iâ€™m afraid Iâ€™m going to kill you one day.'"
Taylor also details the moment when she and a friend found Russell's body. "As I was laying in the street screaming I realized that my little girl was there and I had to pull it together to get her out of there," she says through tears.
The Bravo star explained why she did the interview, which has been criticized by Russell's family due to rumors of what Taylor was paid for the sit-down. "He doesnâ€™t need my protection anymore, but there are a lot of women in this world that probably do," she says.

Taylor also explains how she told her daughter Kennedy, 5, about her father's death. "I just told her that Daddy got sick and that he died, and we could pick a star in the sky that could be daddy and she could talk to him every night," says Taylor.
On Monday night's episode of Housewives, Taylor broke down when discussing her marriage.
