"In the moment that I found him hanging, I can't even describe the myriad of emotions," the Bravo star recalled in the Monday, August 9, episode. "I mean, of course shock is the thing that I think of most and where it didn't even seem real. I was so in shock that all I thought is, I don't even know if this is really happening."

"After all I've been through … I was such an emotional mess anyway, that it was even hard to process, but you know, the 911 tapes are out, unfortunately, in the world. And it's just such a traumatic thing to know what that moment was like," Taylor said.

Following The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip alum's tragic discovery, she went into protective mode to shelter their daughter, Kennedy, now 16, from what was going on.

"When I was in the street and hysterical, and finally had a moment to wrap myself around the fact that my daughter was in the car with my assistant," she continued, adding she was quick to get her little girl out of the area, "before all the emergency services vehicles came and the police and everything else."

"And the minute I got her down the hill to safety, then I could go back into worrying about everything else, all the ramifications and the shock," she continued.

In the decade since Russel's death, Taylor has remarried, moved to Orange County and recently made Bravo history as the first housewife to jump franchises. As OK! previously reported, the blonde beauty will be joining The Real Housewives of Orange County for Season 17.
