This was actually really good. I think Taylor (I've watched the show, so I feel first name is appropriate) does an excellent job of describing her thoughts and feelings going through horrific abuse and coping after her husband's shocking suicide. I can't find a ghost-writer credited, although maybe it's hidden somewhere, and it sounds like her voice. She's an intelligent person and I think that comes through. Many people have criticized her as a "gold digger" or as being disrespectful to Russell's memory by writing this. I disagree. The abuse that he doled out to several partners is part of his history and should not be whitewashed in death. It's been documented by the courts and police records. I feel for Taylor and hope she and her daughter can come out ahead.
