As noted by E! News, scenes with Taylor discussing her troubled marriage at the time of filming were not edited out.  After indicating that she was in therapy with Russell, at Adrienne's dinner party Ken Vanderpump mentioned his viewpoint and that in his mind it's a sign of weakness.

At that point, an upset Taylor left the room in tears. When she returned she noted, "I'm really fragile right now, I'm going through so much that it's a lot." Lisa and Ken left the dinner party and Camille remarked, "For a change I wasn't part of the drama."
