Taylor Armstrong Denies Russell's Sister's Claims That Abuse Never Happened On 'Watch What Happens Live' (VIDEO)

Shortly before her husband Russell committed suicide, "Real Housewives" star Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce, accusing him of verbal and physical abuse during their five-year marriage.

However, Russell's sister, Laurie Armstrong Kelsoe has refuted those accusations. She has said that not only was there no domestic abuse, but also that she believes Russell may have been murdered.

Andy Cohen asked Taylor about Laurie's allegations on "Watch What Happens Live" (Weeknights, 11 p.m. EST on Bravo), saying that according to Laurie, "there's nothing that supports your accusations."

In response, Taylor said that Laurie wouldn't have known about the state of the Armstrongs' marriage because she was dealing with her "own problems and complications" for most of that time period.

Supporting her claims of physical abuse, Taylor said, "I have a titanium mesh implant holding up my right eye right now, so I don't know what more radiographic evidence you need than that."

Taylor announced that she'd had the implant back in October during an interview with KTLA-TV's morning show. During that interview she also alleged that her marriage was abusive long before the "Real Housewives" camera crew moved in and that she believed doing the show actually may have saved her life.

"Watch What Happens Live" airs Weeknights, 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
