Anyway, I only came here to offer the book. The book is gone now, and so am I.
The scene was actually described accurately via how Taylor delivered it on the 3rd part of the reunion show.

Russell isn't around to defend himself, and where are Mark and Jen? Maybe they should come forward to save their friend, again? I hope they do. Taylor needs it.

Yeah,....Why would they care about backing up a story for Taylors profit.

I can't imagine with all the people she claims he assaulted, not one has come forward with their story.

Radar online, TMZ and other publications pay for stories like that.

And that's the HUGE problem. Russell ran around trying to drown people in pools, beating the crap out of them, and no one presses charges against him? For Taylor's sake? Nah. No.

Apparently Radar pays $25K per story. To Lisa, at least.

k:
But wait, the woman did somehow call the cops, because a detective apparently tried to investigate. But apparently she only reported the incident against Tailor, not the fact that the man was knocked unconscious, then thrown in a pool (how do you not drown, or at least inhale water), and TGIF his teeth knocked out. And wait....... It was a PIT BULL? That sat there watching his owner get beat up? By getting near enough to that dog at a time of aggression, those jaws would have been locked on Russell....
Who does Trailor think she was married to.....

I thought the best part of teh reunion was the Househusbands. Very funny, cute and well, hot (Mauricio and Paul!)

Kim's interview was interesting, but when Kyle came in I lost interest.

^That's some good points about Taylor's lack of credibility. That grin she gave about Russells demise being a possible murder was scary spice! She talks out of both side of her mouth. In season one Russell was a business partner whose money was all she wanted and then she claims to have loved him so much! Grifter is a great word for her.

The Hilton sisters are boring spice. Yeah Kyle we believe everything you say Obviously Ken was Kim's planted love interest Kim babbles like a moron. Here Kim let me help you - you have made an a## of yourself on national television so sis can keep hawking her book! Congrats you will never be winning an oscar!

The disease of addiction has a biological component, that's why it's considered a disease. Most addicts are born with the genetic predisposition towards addiction (i.e. why Kim but not Kyle is an alcoholic) and the more a person abuses a substance, the more the drug use rewires the brain and their brain becomes hardwired to crave the drug. It becomes a drive, just like the drive to eat, have sex and drink when you're thirsty. Except, due to the genetic predisposition and the amount a person's brain is rewired, the drive to take in drugs is MUCH HIGHER than our basic, biological drives. If you've ever been really thirsty but unable to access water, this gives you an idea of what a craving is like for a user. Users have to struggle with these ongoing, persistant, chronic cravings for the rest of their lives and for many, the craving is too intense and it's just easier for them, in the moment, to give in.

I drop a pencil on the floor. "Try" to pick up the pencil, I tell them. I always get the puzzled look. Then it dawns on them. You either pick it up or you don't. There is no such thing as "trying." Same goes for quitting whatever it is that you are abusing. You either stop it or you don't. You don't "try."
If only willpower was required to stop being an addict, no one would be an addict. LOL. Everyone would just stop using when they feel they've had too much. Much more goes into it than that.

The irony that Kyle admittedly asked Kim to be on the show and then outed her own sisters addiction and wanted to keep people guessing about it is telling. I can't take them seriously! Kim picking up that baggie that gave an inference to previous meth or cocaine use in the limo after she couldn't get herself out of the bathroom moments earlier, with Ken on the way to Sur was so staged! The Hilton sisters should both be ashamed of themselves for making a serious addiction like substance abuse a laughing stock

"I know how it looks,” Armstrong said softly, referring to critics who argue that she's trying to capitalize on her estranged husband's death.

The show “completely defaced his character,” Laurie Ann Kelsoe, Russell's sister, told Drew Pinsky recently on his HLN show. “Shame on (Taylor) for doing this and for thinking that all he was was bad … if that's the case, then why did she stay there and spend his money?”
Russell wasn't forced to do the show. He knew what he was getting himself into, he signed a contract, and it just showed what a slug he really was and that is why he and his family were pissed. He has no one to blame but himself, that lowlife coward.
