Russell Armstrong was the 47-year old husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Taylor Armstrong. Tragically, Russell committed suicide on August 15th about one month after Taylor had filed for divorce. Russell was reportedly distraught over how the Bravo TV Show was going to portray him in this upcoming season. His unexpected suicide took his whole family by surprise.
The already sad situation turned even uglier a few days ago when attorneys for the family members began to argue, publicly, about his funeral. Russell’s attorney told numerous media outlets that Taylor had not told Russell’s parents or sister about the burial arrangements. In fact, he blasted Taylor and her attorney saying:
“I am deeply disgusted that Taylor would use her family law attorney to create cover, by lying to me over a period of days, on her behalf in writing that she would share the funeral location and time with my client’s mother, father, sister and other family members. Instead, no one has contacted them and it is apparent now that Taylor is using this death to further injure the Armstrongs. As if filing for divorce was not enough, this act of cutting out his mom, dad, and sister is frankly, despicable.”
