Ever since her husband’s suicide in August, Taylor Armstrong has been tapping into her subconscious, and apparently, it’s given her all kinds of interesting epiphanies.

In one of the most crowded and awkward interviews ever set up in the history of local television, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star sat down with not one—but four!—KTLA-TV morning personalities to chat about Russell’s suicide, her abusive marriage, and how reality TV was not her downfall but rather, her salvation.

“If the cameras were not in my life, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t be sitting here today because a lot of domestic violence situations end in murder-suicide versus just suicide,” stated the 40-year-old mother, whose face appeared conspicuously tighter since we last saw her.

When asked about whether she directly blamed the spotlight for her husband’s suicide, Taylor dismissed the notion completely, which was exactly the opposite stance she took in an interview with Dr. Phil in September.

Despite her change of mind, Taylor said her tragic circumstances has prompted her to discover her new passion and mission in life (besides being on a reality show): campaigning against domestic violence.

“I believe that, subconsciously, I may have signed up for the show to try and allow my problems to be in the public eye to some extent because, again, it was my saving grace,” she declared.

To bring the point home, she then proceeded to discuss the titanium implant holding up her right eye from one of Russell’s blows—which was hard to watch on so many different levels.
