It's tough to call this split a shocker à la J.Lo and Marc.

But after putting her rocky marriage on display for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Taylor Armstrong has filed for divorce from hubby Russell Armstrong, E! News has confirmed.

"It was a difficult decision but I have decided to file for divorce from Russell," Taylor said in a statement to People. "Although we have tried our best to work out our differences, I have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of our family that we separate."

And that wasn't all.

"Together we are the proud parents of a sweet and wonderful little girl and she remains my number one priority," Taylor went on. "I am sad for my marriage to come to an end, but am confident that this is the right choice for all involved."

This news comes after the couple shut down rumors in May that they were splitting up.

Taylor and Russell wed in 2005, and have a 5-year-old daughter, Kennedy.
