Taylor Armstrong, whose personal family tragedy has overshadowed the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (which was shot before husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide in August), has signed a memoir deal with Simon &Schuster, E! News confirmed Friday.

How did we ever think that wouldn't happen, right?

Armstrong is expected to delve into what she has since described as her physically and emotionally abusive relationship with Russell and her current mission to educate and help other victims of domestic violence.

The publisher tells us the book is due out on Feb. 7.

The Armstrongs' marital problems have taken center stage on RHOBH this season. On a recent episode, divorce Camille Grammer confronted Taylor about getting help during an intervention masquerading as a tea party at Lisa Vanderpump's house.

"I think everyone should start saying what they mean," Taylor said, opening the door for Camille.

"I don't think you want to put everything out there," Kelsey Grammer's ex told her. "You said 'everything.' Be careful saying that. We're all protecting you...About what you told us about your marriage...We don't say that he hit you, we don't say that he broke your jaw or that he beat you up...We don't say that, but now we've said it."

Taylor had filed for divorce in July. She has repeatedly denied that she's seriously dating again and has said that she's focusing on her daughter, Kennedy, and her charity work.
