Late Feb. 2011??: Colorado trip
The house was listed for sale on 3/14/11 … Camille saying she wanted to take the girls there before it went up for sale. Bravo would not film there if the house was listed because that could interfere with showings.
March 2011: HW’s trip to Colorado, because it fell sometime after Camille’s show debut party and before Game Night at Dana’s, plus Adrienne talks about possibly moving the Kings and the rumors were confirmed March 7th
March 9, 2o11: Shana at Orange County benefit… here:
“The party would not be complete without the star-studded appearance of former “The Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson, who attracted plenty of attention. Moments later, from the cast of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Taylor Armstrong appeared wearing a multi-colored sequined mini dress, keeping with the Mardi Gras theme.

April 26ish: Brandi moves into her new rental home
4/27/11: Adrienne’s BBQ? From DD’s twitter on 4/28/11: went to a great bbq @AdrienneMaloof house yesterday. Thanx Adrienne xo
late April-Early May 2011: Game Night at Dana’s, had to be around this time because Kyle’s clue to Kim was that they’d just attended Perez’s birthday party (the Blue Ball), if they are airing in the order they filmed, game night was after the BBQ and before Camille’s cancer luncheon
Early May 2011: Kyle takes MIL to Paul’s practice for six week follow-up regarding face-lift
5/4/11: Taylor at The Associates For Breast And Prostate Cancer’s Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon (this is the luncheon Camille spoke at with her mother)
5/5-5/10/11ish: Adrienne’s spa party at her house, since it was after Camille’s luncheon but before Paul’s infomercial
5/5/11: Kyle & Mauricio throw Cinco de Mayo party at their house
5/7/11: Taylor and Kennedy at Spirit of Life awards
(Her mouth looks weird to me here. I noticed it also in the limo with Russell on the way to Adrienne’s fashion show. I don’t know what it is exactly but it doesn’t look like it normally does).
5/7/11: Taylor, Russell, Kennedy and Camille at Lollipop Theatre Networks 3rd Annual Game Day at Nickelodeon Studios
5/10/11ish: Pandora’s engagement party at Mohammed’s, since it was after Adrienne’s spa party but before Paul’s infomercial
Mid-May 2011 – Per Brandi’s twitter, her cast came off and began wearing the boot
mid-May 2011: Paul’s infomercial…err spa party at his office. Camille isn’t there because Kelsey had just filed for full custody and he did that May 17th.
mid-May 2011: Kyle’s seance (at Paul’s infomercial…err spa party, Taylor starts to tell Paul that she’ll see him “tomorrow” and then catches herself and says “I’ll see you at the seance”, so it must have been the day after Paul’s party).
5/17/11: Taylor at the premier of “The World According To Paris”
5/25/11: Los Angeles Business Journal Women Making a Difference luncheon, where Taylor was nominated and didn’t invite Lisa
5/26/11: Lisa’s TEA PARTY, since it was supposedly the day after the awards
late May 2011: Kennedy’s birthday party, even though her actual birthday was 3 months earlier. Taylor was complaining to Kyle that she’d make Camille shovel shit if she was there, so it had to be after the tea party but before the fashion show
late May-early June 2011: Had to have been Adrienne’s fashion show, since it was after the tea party fight with Camille but before the bachelorette party
late May-early June 2011: possibly when Taylor had Lasik, since she said it was a few weeks prior to the black eye beating and since she’s pictured at an event on June 5 in sunglasses the entire time (due to the recent Lasik I’m thinking)
6/1/11: MALIBU BEACH PARTY
6/1/11: Camille tweeted to DD: ”I was just thinking about you! U R coming tonight?!” DD tweeted back:” good to see you on here today see you later!xoxo” (AT BEACH PARTY)
6/3/11: Paul and Adrienne appear on “The Doctors” (“How to Look Like a Million Bucks”)
6/4/11: Taylor’s lunch with Lisa to discuss Malibu:
6/5/11: Taylor and Russell at Kidstock To Benefit One Voice Scholars Program
(possibly shortly after the Lasik surgery, thus the reason for the sunglasses)
6/6/11: Crescent Financial announces Brazil office… here. (Shana claimed on RHOBH Reunion Show Part II 2.6.12 that she had no knowledge of this office.)
6/7/11: The HWs where Camille is wearing the yellow shirt and green earrings was shot.
6/9/11: ADRIENNE’S FASHION SHOW
6/9/11: SH readers found photo below 2.11.12 Per notation on photo, this photo was taken “246 days ago”… which would make the date June 9, 2011. So that means the fashion show was actually AFTER Malibu, not before, even though Bravo aired them the other way around.
NOTE: That’s why things were so tense between Taylor and Camille in Malibu. It WAS the first time they’d seen each other since the tea party. That’s why things weren’t really tense, just awkward, at the fashion show. Also possibly why Russell decided to attend the fashion show. He knew Camille would be there and Taylor must have told him about the tea party and Malibu. Why an abused woman who was so terrified of her husband finding out that she’d blabbed on camera would tell him all of that, I have no idea. Also possibly why Camille brought her PR guy with her…after the tea party and Malibu, I’m surprised she didn’t bring an armed guard!
If you watch both episodes now, with that in mind, it all makes so much more sense. That lunch scene with Brandi and Adrienne was totally scripted and fake and shot way after both events took place. Who knows, maybe it was shot after Russell died even. I always thought that whole lunch seemed odd and that’s why…neither one are very good actors. When Adrienne says the line about Taylor and Camille not getting along and Brandi saying “They seemed fine at your fashion show” Adrienne even looks off to the side of the camera like she wants to make sure she’s doing it okay.
6/10/11: Taylor’s birthday… here.
6/10/11: Pandora’s bachelorette party, at Planet Hollywood in Vegas.
6/11/11: Taylor and Russell celebrating her birthday at Beso
6/11/11: This is the night the black eye beating would have occurred. She said that she’d been in Vegas with Lisa the previous night filming and Russell accused her of flirting with another man. Her and Russell and some other friends went out for Taylor’s birthday and when they got home, he made the accusation and hit her. She’d had Lasik a few weeks before and this punch tore her corneal flap and broke her orbital socket. I believe she also said somewhere that she was unable to look down because of this injury.

7/14/11: RHOBH season 2 wrap party filmed at Sur. Supposedly Taylor had a black eye that was covered with heavy makeup. (There was a link to a filming permit obtained by the production company… when last ‘clicked’, there was nothing there. Therefore, the link was deleted.) July 14 IS the correct date for wrap party.
PER RHOBH PRODUCER DAVE RUPEL AND CEDRIC MARTINEZ… FILMING WAS ON JULY 14:
From: Dave RupelDate: Thu, 14 Jul 2011 10:27:10 -0700To: michael sanchezSubject: Re: Cedric | “Housewives”
Hey Michael,So far, everything is still on track for an 8:30 arrival. As I told you yesterday, Lisa has been told that Cedric wants to offer an olive branch, but is still very apprehensive. I encourage you to encourage Cedric to be at his most gracious. Obviously, this is a difficult and emotional moment for both Lisa and Cedric.We are not telling any of the other Wives that Cedric is coming, so I don’t think any other wives will really talk to Cedric before he reaches Lisa – other than, “do you know where Lisa is?” kind of thing – because honestly, they’ll all be pretty surprised to see him.However, after he talks with Lisa, and at some point, we do expect her to ask him to leave, we are prepared for Cedric to ask another cast member to talk with him outside (Brandi, Kyle, Bernie, Dwight, Justin.)Sound okay?———-Dave Rupel

August 8, 2011… People:
”I knew I had to break the cycle for my daughter’s sake,” says Taylor, who in 2004, in an attempt to “let go of my childhood and that little girl who had seen too much,” changed her birth name to Taylor Ford-combining her stepfather’s last name, Taylor, and the last name of her idol, designer Tom Ford. “I got a lot of flak for that,” she acknowledges of the name switch (which led some Internet reports to call her a “grifter”)
… see NAME CHANGE… DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.
8/8/11: Taylor tweets: Fav dish @villablanca is the tuna tartar! Try it
From National Enquirer:
National Enquirer reports the physical abuse Taylor experienced was much more brutal — once leaving her with a dislocated jaw and almost blinding her in one eye.
“Taylor and Russell’s on-air arguments were well-documented, but behind the scenes the situation was far worse,” a show insider reveals stating that when producers approached her about revealing the dramatic details on camera, she suddenly “clammed up” because she was terrified of how Russell would react.
“She was finally done being ashamed for a problem that is so near to her heart,” noted the source. “She told her co-stars that during a Super Bowl party, Russell dislocated her jaw and tried to cover it up. Taylor said he wouldn’t even allow her to seek treatment for the injury right away.”
The magazine states that at the final “Housewives” taping for the new season, Taylor shocked her castmates when she showed up with a black eye at Lisa Vanderpumps SUR restaurant in west Hollywood. “Taylor had on a lot of make-up, but she revealed to the other women that Russell had hit her in the right eye with a closed fist several days earlier,” claimed the source adding that Taylor was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she had a steel plate inserted during an operation to save her eye.
“Taylor has wanted to end the marriage for some time, and the black eye pushed her over the edge and prompted her to file for divorce,” the source added.

8/13/11: Russell was supposed to meet Taylor for dinner but never showed up (per coroners report). However, Taylor claims they were supposed to have dinner 8/15/11. Not only that but Taylor specifically made a huge deal during her sympathy tour about why didn’t anyone go check on him if they hadn’t heard from him for days, never mentioning SHE had dinner plans with him that he failed to show up for.

8/22/11…. From Celebrity News and Style… here.
While all these funeral arrangements are being made, it has emerged that none of the hospital staff who treated Taylor Armstrong after her then husband Russell attacked her in June called the police about the attack.
Medical professionals must report suspected domestic abuse. However, when Taylor Armstrong had to have surgery on broken cheekbones, they did not report her injuries to the police.
The doctor who performed the surgery was apparently not Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif. Whoever it was, he or the other hospital staff should have reported this as at least suspected domestic abuse. They didn’t.
Taylor Armstrong is putting all that behind her to arrange a funeral for her estranged husband and the father of her child. It seems his family cannot forgive Taylor for, as they see it, dragging him into reality TV. They agree with Russell who recently blamed The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills show for ruining his life.

These further allegations were voiced by Russell Armstrong’s mother last night in an interview with Jane Velez-Mitchell on HLN. John Ann Hotchkiss, Russell’s mother, said she knew that Taylor charged excessive bills to her son’s credit card, worsening his financial woes.
John Ann Hotchkiss alleges that $90,000 was put on his American Express credit card in June, not by him, but by Taylor Armstrong. That is after the two had split up and Taylor had begun divorce proceedings against Russell Armstrong.
September 14, 2011… Access Hollywood… Camille says she saw photos… Lisa says that she was with Armstrong’s until 1:30 am
9/16/11…. From Celebrity News… here.
Russell Armstrong carried out a sustained attack on Taylor,fracturing her cheekbones and blacking her eyes, after she told him her friends on the hit reality TV show were ready to inform law enforcement and child protective services about his physical abuse of her. It had reached the point where they were even scared for the safety of the Armstrongs’ daughter, Kennedy (now aged 5). However, Taylor Armstrong denied that the little girl ever saw or experienced any abuse.We can now disclose to you that Taylor made the decision to file for divorce while in the hospital, following the beating where she sustained the injuries we recently showed you photos of. Taylor Armstrong revealed those photographs to Entertainment Tonight.By the point of this attack, Taylor’s closest friends were so worried for her safety and that of her young daughter that they were threatening to go to the authorities with their concerns. They issued her with an ultimatum: file for divorce or we are telling the authorities about the abuse.But when Taylor told Russell what her friends planned on doing, he allegedly beat her, and that is what caused her to go to the hospital. Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce: a decision made while still in hospital. The pictures released by Entertainment Online and which we also brought you, were intended to document her injuries.

Taylor Armstrong raked in up to $125,000 for the sale of a picture she says was snapped after a brutal beating by her late husband, Russell.
The “Real Housewives” star sold the picture, showing her lying in bed with a gruesome black eye, to “Entertainment Tonight,” which aired it last week to tease an upcoming interview with Armstrong, the first since Russell’s suicide a month ago.
9/20/11: ET starts airing the Taylor interviews…. here.
Taylor Armstrong said that when her late husband was found dead she wanted to “hug him” one last time.
Taylor Armstrong, Russell Armstrong
Taylor Armstrong says that she wanted to hug her late husband Russell “one last time” after he was found dead last month.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has spoken for the first time about what happened when she first realised the financier had committed suicide by hanging himself.
In the interview with Entertainment Tonight, the socialite became emotional as she revealed the sequence of events on the fateful day.
“I did not [see his body],” Taylor revealed. “I asked the… and I’m sure a lot of people won’t understand this… but I asked the emergency workers if I could go in and hug him before they took him away but they wouldn’t let me.”
“I just felt like I needed to see him one last time, but they wouldn’t let me.”
Taylor also revealed that she is still wearing her wedding ring and her late husband’s, despite having filed for divorce shortly before Russell’s suicide.
“I’m now wearing his wedding ring and mine together,” she shared. “Right now I’m still doing anything I can to figure out how to get close to him.”
“I still have the last shirt he wore before the night of and sometimes I sit in my closet with it ‘cause maybe I think I’m gonna get insight or may I just need to feel close to him.”
Taylor says that although their five-year-old daughter Kennedy had come with her to where Russell was staying, thankfully the young girl was not in the house when her father’s body was found.
“Kennedy was [in the car] sitting on Julie’s (Taylor’s assistant’s) lap pretending to steer and she said, ‘Julie, did my daddy do something dumb?’”
Russell also left behind two sons from previous relationships.

9/23/11: Sur Restaurant opens per Lisa’s twitter… and per SH commenter:
|I responded to that thread already and the only thing I can tell you is there is no way they filmed this party at Sur Lounge on 7/14. I was there through out the Summer and It was under major construction/remodel and if it were ready for opening then why would Lisa Vanderpump keep it closed until 9/22? Makes NO sense! And if I had not seen it with my own eyes I would have trouble believing it as well that Bravo+cast would be involved in such a coverup…but I think at this point they are all just trying save their own a****! It made me sick to my stomach when I saw this preview for the first time!|
