We can't even begin to imagine what this poor woman must be going through right now.
We were shocked and saddened to discover this morning that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell, took his own life last night, and it appears that the reality starlet is so devastated that she hasn't been able to tell their 5-year-old daughter together, Kennedy, the awful news.
A source close to her reveals:
"She's not emotionally ready to do so just yet."
While the couple's attorney, Robert Thorne, explains:
"Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded. She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter."
Completely understandable. Losing a loved one is hard enough, let alone having to come to grips with a suicide.
We just hope she and Kennedy can somehow accept that regardless of what was going on in all of their personal lives, that the depression from which we assume he was suffering is a disease, and they cannot feel responsible for his actions in any capacity whatsoever.
Our thoughts and condolences are with them in this impossibly difficult time.
