Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Russell Armstrong Found Dead

16 Aug

According to TMZ,  “Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong, was found dead of an apparent suicide … sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say Armstrong hanged himself. He was found hanging in his bedroom on Mulholland Drive.

We’re told L.A. City Fire Department arrived at his home and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM Monday. Sources say a roommate found Russell and called 911.

We’re told authorities have not found a suicide note.

Taylor filed for divorce last month, after she claimed Russell physically abused her. We’re told authorities informed her of Russell’s death last night.

He was 47 years old.

Story developing …

8:13 AM: Bravo and the cast of “Real Housewives” were unaware of Russell’s death. Kyle Richards was distraught when she saw the TMZ post, and Lisa Vanderpump was speechless.

9:29 AM: A rep for Bravo tells TMZ, “All of us at Bravo are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Our sympathy and thoughts are with the Armstrong family at this difficult time.

9:35 AM: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … no drugs or alcohol were found in the bedroom where Russell died. He was fully clothed when his body was discovered.”


TMZ also reported this story a couple of weeks ago. It is not known if this might be the reason he is now dead, but it makes sense to me.

From watching the show, I can tell that something definitely was not right and but I have to say that I am in complete shock!  Prayers for Taylor Armstrong, their little girl, family and friends. This is truly sad.
