In the latest episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," viewers saw reality star Taylor Armstrong turn over her 10-karat wedding ring and two Hermes bags to a settle a debt left by her late husband, Russell.
Monday's episode revealed details in the legal battle that forced Taylor to hand over her ring, which has an estimated value of $250,000, and to bags to business associates of Russell from a company called MMR that is suing her for $1.5 million.
"I can't imagine someone even having the guts to ask someone for the wedding ring," Taylor complained in the episode.
After the show aired Taylor wrote in her Bravo television blog that the legal proceedings she had to go through, facing a public company on her own, "was scary as hell." She also admitted to having a hard time relinquishing her wedding ring, though not for material reasons.
"To learn that they wanted my wedding ring to settle was heart-wrenching. I wasn't wearing the ring and the material object wasn't important to me but, it felt like letting go all over again," she wrote. "More importantly, it was one of very few happy mementoes that I expected Kennedy to have. I had hoped she would wear it when she got married."
Taylor in the end added that she does not regret giving up the ring - the pressure of the legal battle was too great and it ended up being costly for her to keep spending money on attorneys.
Also in Monday's episode, Brandi Glanville met the woman who came in between her marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian, and Faye Resnick said she does not regret attacking Glanville about the comments the model made regarding fellow "Housewives" star Adrienne Maloof. Glanville left the dinner party after the incident crying and Kyle Richards went out to console her. Resnick stayed with the other girls, and called Lisa Vanderpump "sweet" for taking Glanville's side in the dispute.
