A preview teases an emotional gathering during which the women tell Armstong, "We're all protecting you … because we don’t say that he hits you"
In a preview of next week's episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," the cast members are gathered together for a tea party that turns into a confrontation about Taylor Armstrong's alleged abuse by her husband Russell.
"We're all protecting you … because we don’t say that he hits you. But now we said it," Camille Grammer says to Armstrong in the clip, presumably referring to the late Russell, who committed suicide in August.
The episode continues the network's understated treatment of Armstrong's death and the allegations of abuse aimed at him.
On the Bravo TV website, for instance, the preview clips for the Nov. 14 episode are headlined "Is Lisa's Ego Out of Control?" and "Please Don't Be My Enemy," with the emphasis on a tiff in which Armstrong calls Lisa VanderPump self-involved.
Meanwhile, the clip's voiceover announces "a huge secret is revealed."
Thanks, Bravo, but that secret's been out for a while now.
