This is really very sad.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong, Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, was sadly found dead in his apartment last night, apparently committing suicide.

According to reports, Russell was found hanging in his bedroom in his apartment on Mulholland Drive. He was found by his roommate at 8:16 PM and he called 911. Authorities have not found a suicide note. As we hear it, the police informed Taylor shortly after his body was found.

Our sincerest condolences go out to Taylor and her daughter, as well as all of Russell's family and friends for their loss.

    Your exclamation marks make it seem like you're salivating over the chance to report on this. How heartless of you.

    This is sad. poor Taylor I hope she gets privacy. This & that show coming back second season hard times. His family is in my prayers.

    I hope to god his gold digging duck lipped b*tch wife is not in the will. Sad. I'm sure she will want to use this juicy storyline in the RHOBH.

    Thanks the reality TV and those who looks at this shit.
    In France a young man commit suicide last week, he did a kind of big brother last year.

    And i don't believe in coincidences.

    Gee, what a surprise given all the recent press on his abusive ways. The only thing sad about the situation is his poor daughter growing up without a father.

    Re: boston61 – If you saw the post he initially put up before he added the details, you'd be calling him an asshole, Asshole.

    All she ever did on that show was piss and moan about him. The poor man.

    WHO

    omg im shocked,



  14. 14

    Wow when you first added this I thought you were just talking about Desperate Housewives and a new plot line… How sad.

    Re: PosseUser

    I'm sorry.



  16. 16

    That EVIL GREEDY VAMPIRE BITCH sucked the life out of him….Isn't that what her show is all about?



  17. 17

    and for this I blame the media. I think that media sometimes tears so hard into people that they can't take it anymore..and that is probably what happened here. Perez, you should feel ashamed of yourself. When you post stories you always jam your claws into them..like the previous one's about russell.

    Wow thats really awful.. It's really sad when people feel so desperate that they have to take their own lives. I guess living with Taylor was more painful then we imagined. I feel truly sorry for his young daughter because she will be the one who truly suffers. She has a mother who is a narcissist and now a father who couldn't take the pressure of his wife constantly feeling the need to air dirty (unsubstantiated claims) laundry in the media all the time. I watched Taylor on RH and did not like the way she was with her husband, it seemed like she took him and everything he did for her for granted, of course reality tv is only one little glimpse into a persons life… but It seemed obvious that Russel was not happy.



  20. 20

    I also feel this might have not happened if they didn't do the show. If they didn't do the show everything probably wouldn't have been known to the public and maybe they could have dealt with things in private. So sad..

    What a piece of sh*t…..what a way to screw up your daughter!!! Sorry, having had a family member commit suicide….I personally believe it is one of the most selfish things to do to your family……You leave them feeling guilt and blame..and screw them up for a long long time. Proves he didn't give a sh*t for his daughter..why would you do that to her???? Leave her without a father, and questions on why???? I know he must have been in pain…but very selfish to do that to your family.



  22. 22

    You have a field-day when a gay kid commits suicide bashing the roommate who outed him….do you really think you had no contributing factor when you outed his past?? I'm not stupid, I know domestic violence is bad but don't go pretending to feel bad about it now. So hypocritical

    Re: MoKnowsAll – I agree with you. Suicide is completely SELFISH.



  25. 25

    I love how so many people blame Taylor and call her a gold digger! He was an average looking guy with a NO personality who probably promised her the world if she married him. And suicide is a selfish act and to blame someone else for it is ridiculous! Life can be hard, he took the easy way out…says a lot of about him I think.

    wow. this is so surprising and sad for his family. estranged or not.

  27. lolli says – reply to this


    27

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOD, REALLY? HE NEVER SEEMED HAPPY BUT I THOUGHT MAYBE HE WAS BORED. WOW WOW WOWWWWWWW



  28. 28

    So sad.



  29. 29

    This is truly sad. She said he NEVER abused her and she would Never let anyone do that. Then she whined because she married a nerd who didn't connect or want to party and scocialize. Then she exagerated an alledged scuffle, which she later recanted, and said she was abused. I am so sorry for all involved but I think she left him for the legalities of his debt. Vanderpump said of her that she wanted to leave her husband , but she "wanted the lifestyle of BH".



  30. 30

    SAD.. However I would love to see what she would say at his funeral, she can't say "he was a supportive and loving husband", to late you already lied and said he beat you.



  31. 31

    This is just so sad on so many levels. These reality shows seem to be filled with very sad and insecure people that are craving some sort of attention and limelight. This goes for ALL reality shows in my opinion. I look forward to a time when these shows are a thing of the past.



  32. 32

    Re: Fariswheel – I completely agree with everything you said



  33. 33

    Anything for ratings….



  34. 34

    I feel so bad for his daughter. She's such a sweet girl and he seemed to be such a caring father.



  35. 35

    Re: MoKnowsAll – I know… whatever it was that he was facing - prison, public embarrassment, financial ruin - there's nothing that terrible that you can't get through in order for your daughter to grow up with a father.



  36. 36

    He leaves behind millions of dollars in financial ruin for his wife and child to deal with. There IS NO MONEY for her or his children.



  37. 37

    Wow…. this is so sad. Remember, it ALWAYS gets better :(



  38. 38

    Who the fuck cares…….I hope the fucking stock market crashes and allot of CEOs jump out of a fucking window……………………Money money MoNey,,,,,,,,,,,,Greed is evil……..



  39. 39

    im sorry but my money is on guy with values on all the wrong things, gets money to live the life gets trophy wife, trophy wife loves the life and money can deal with guy, guy looses money and trophy wife than sees no more reason to hang around guy thinks that no money means he cant be happy and knows he will never get a porno looking chikc without out it. throw in abuse in the press and whatever else. its sad but this is what happens with the kind of persons who want fame and money no matter how they achieve it and/or materialistic shallow



  40. 40

    We all fight our demons, his demons won even if i had my thoughts about him no one deserves to kill themselves. RIP and so sad for his young daughter that won't even begin to be able to understand.



  41. 41

    Congratulations, Andy. This is what you and the folks at Bravo were gunning for. Some train wreck like this to be setup and eventually occur so ratings would go thru the roof. How many more seasons did you just sign Taylor to? Disgusting. This is what it's all come down to. A broken man who was ****** over by his wife because the cameras filled her head with nonsense. Good job, guys, good job. And to all you low life "twit-heads" that think Tweeting your empty sorrows has any meaning. Go jump in a fire.



  42. 42

    I'm sure she will make it all about her and how much she loved him, blah, blah, blah. She's a gold digger and just as abusive as he was to her. I'm not condoning whatever he may have done to her, I'm just saying she is no victim. It went both ways.



  43. 43

    What a loser I'm sorry, if he cared at all about his daughter, I'm sure he would have not done what he did. Not only is he leaving her without a father but in a financial crisis. I wouldn't be surprised if this little girl grows up to have some serious emotional issues herself. Hopefully her mother will gain an ounce of humility from this and take themselves out of the spotlight.



  44. 44

    This financial situation makes sense on how he acting on the show. I thought he was cheating but if my financial situation was as bad as his I would be more distance than him on the show. I know that suicide is not ultimately a thought out decision but I had a feeling that Russell felt that his purpose to his family was to provide financial for them and he felt he blew it. But I could tell his daughter never cared for that and liked him for more than that. I don't hate Taylor. She just wasn't his type of girl and he wasn't her type of man.



  45. 45

    Omg! This is so sad. I could give two shits about Taylor, I feel bad for their child. Lost of a father is so tragic.



  46. 46

    Re: MsJules – Says the disturbed girl who verbally and emotionally abused a girl who confessed to being abused in the past. Always protecting your own, eh? Love them abusers. At least your consistent when it comes to this. Charming.



  47. 47

    Re: MoKnowsAll – I'm sorry to hear that, my condolences to your family. That said, I do not agree with your opinion on suicide. A lot of factors take part in such an act, and in most cases I would never blame anyone who gets to that point. If one wants understanding for one's pain and anger because of one's loss, one should also understand the pain of the person who *was* lost. In this case however, I do not believe it was the usual pain associated with suicide, I believe it was a calculated decision on his part as he had traits of psychopathy. Thus in this specific case, I only empathise with the people left behind, especially his daughter.



  48. 48

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – LMAO! verbally abused a girl who was abused in the past? Why because I said its stupid for someone to stay with an abuser? LMAO.. remember that these allegations that he abused her she has recanted numerous times and there are no reports or evidence to back up abuse claims. You're pathetic. Welcome to my fan club.



  49. 49

    i am sorry for the loss but Russell would put her down alot even on the show but my condolences to everyone effected by this



  50. 50

    If I had to look at that muppet faced bitch every day I would hag myself too



  51. 51

    Re: like!!!COLON!!! whatever! – Suicide isn't easy say to so is foolish, although it generally involves a temporary problem, it's by no means 'easy" and she may not be a gold digger but she wasn't messing with broke…..men. They are both average looking imo.

    Nonetheless this is extremely sad regardless of what or whom it was.



  52. 52

    Their poor little girl.



  53. 53

    i assume shed want sympathy she gets none from me ..
    do u people think u can blame perez when ur here posting u blame him u blame urselfs..



  54. 54

    Re: adg100 – Don't blame Andy for this, you dick.



  55. 55

    All he ever did was work. Taylor accuses him of abuse. Really? With all those cameras around for that reality show. Her playing up her side of their bad marriage. Seems like what an abusive husband would allow…



  56. 56

    So let me get this str8 she stayed married to him when he was beating her but then leaves him when he runs out of money….Shes a worthless human being and a pathetic example for her daugther. Put that bitch to work. Nothing hotter than a woman who makes her own money fuck these worthless money hungry pigs put them back in the barn. I feel bad for his children not that fuckin slut Taylor.
