God! There's no one willing to say one nice thing about this guy to clear his rep a little bit, huh?
Though Taylor Armstrong has yet to make an official statement on the suicide of her husband Russell, sources keep coming out of the woodwork to offer up details about the man that paint him a pretty terrible life. By now, fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are aware that Russell was supposedly abusive to Taylor when he was alive. Now, it sounds like his violence extend to her costars, whom he threatened!
When the abuse started, Taylor reported confided in Camille Grammer and Kyle Richards about it, looking for comfort and advice. Both of the women urged her to tell Bravo the situation to see if they would help. When Russell found out about his wife's conversation with her costars, he became enraged and reacted by sending Camille a "very threatening" email. Those who were privy to see it say that it looked like the "rantings of a lunatic."
Wow. That's rough.
The more we hear, the more we realize we don't know very much about this guy that isn't hearsay or rumor. Unfortunately, we feel like that's all we're ever going to know about him until Taylor finally speaks up. Still, we understand her silence and encourage her to take her time to grieve.
