Russel Armstrong Threatened Taylor's Costar!

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.

    The abuse doesn't fall far from the tree. Now his family is running around threatening everyone under the sun. The person to blame is the selfish asshat Russell. He gave no thought to anyone but himself and the easy way out!
    Don't get me wrong, I don't think Taylor or what ever her real name is better at all.
    He had 3 children to support, and she spent money they didn't have like a mad person.
    Maybe she could take her boobs and lips back for a refund to feed the children!

    good gracious she's a hideous looking woman……from what I hear, outside matches the inside….

    These Housewives are pathetic. The guy is dead and they are still trashing him all in the name of ratings and fame. Taylor is a master manipulator and I can't believe that Lisa and Adrienne are dumb enough to fall for her drama. I think BRAVO is going to trash this guy over the course of the next 2 weeks so they can justify using Russell's and Taylor's footage for the show.

    He was an angry, selfish fucker that cared NOTHING about anyone else. So, so be it.

    I wish Taylor Armstrong or shana or whatever her real name is. I wish she had committed suicide!! She's evil. Confided in her costars?? yeah right!! What about her real life friends?? Why are they all on Russell's side and why are they saying that she killed him?!?!

    Is it me or does she have the worst smile I've ever seen.

    If she can prove she was actually abused by Russell then & only then will I believe her. He is not alive to defend himself. I do not condone violence against anyone, child, animal, woman or man, but if this is true and what I have read so far is that she has pictures and Camille has a threatening email. Then show it to us, the public. If you will make public statements like this and not prove it it means nothing to us. I'm not saying he was an angel, but Taylor isn't one either. She lied about who she was, where she came from, etc. She drove him into bankruptcy and he had children to care for. It shows a lot of the personalities between Russell (who seemed more of a workaholic and private) then Taylor who wanted fame & fortune at no end. Until there is proof, there should be no talk about it.

    He was said to be worried that Bravo would crucify him. Staring to sound less like a conspiracy against him, and more like he knew he had done things that deserved to be crucified. He prob knew this would come to light and didn't want to face the consequences.



  9. 9

    They dove him to it. All those soul sucking sociopathic housewives. Some of them are just as evil as Bethenny Frankel dancing on her dead father's grave.



  10. 10

    What drove him to it are all these shitty gossip blogs spreading rumors… Give it a rest mario. By the way, you looked horrible in your tux with that fat roll hanging over your collar.



  11. 11

    Sorry Perez but.. just because the guy has passed doesn't mean that people should automatically be forced to say nice things about him if that is not how he was in life. If these were his true colors, then so be it.

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – and we say the same about you crackie



  15. 15

    "reportedly"? Who are your sources? Why don't you stop posting about all these allegations and un substatianted pieces of information and let the family deal with their own dirty laundry and private affairs you coc* sucking jerk.



  16. 16

    I hate to say it but I used to not really believe the abuse allegations. I read some article in a tabloid a long time ago and thought it was bs, but now that he's comitted suicide, apparently has gone from wealthy to flat broke in like five minutes, I totally believe the abuse allegations. Something crazy was going on with that guy.



  17. 17

    Why wouldn't he threaten camille…..Taylor was threatening Kim Richards during the show…….

    Taylor is a loser….she created all this drama and is probably at home thinking of how she can get money off of it.



  18. 18

    Re: msloriga – what about Taylor threatening Kim Richards…..don't forget about that.

    I always felt sorry for Russell. I felt that some of these "adults" were bully's. It was like witnessing the mean girls in Jr. High all over again. His own wife use to whine about him and "how I just wish he would celebrate with me." Lisa joked about him "not being attractive". I thought he was handsome and the more they ridiculed him like a bunch of vultures, the more I wanted to defend him. Joking about someone's looks is so nuts. Especially when yours comes in a bottle or a syringe. Why don't you take a look at your own womanizing husband Lisa.

    Russell and Taylor ( what ever her real name is ) could not have been more wrong for each other. Perhaps she should not have pursued him like she did. Maybe he knew that he wasn't in the right place for another relationship. It really brings to mind how you are as good as the spouse you choose. If you are a real team, as any marriage should be, then you bring out the very best in each other hopefully. You don't harp on the negative. Maybe he did have issues but no one forced her to marry him. What ever happened to for better or worse?



  21. 21

    I feel like Taylor likes to be a victim. I really have no respect for someone who exploits their tragedy's for attention. To dis the father of your child on national television, the one person that is suppose to have your back, it is just in poor taste. She was passive aggressive and manipulative. She put on airs. I didn't blame Russell for not wanting to socialize with most of these types. How exhausting it is to tune into the drama. I liken it to a car crash. We all slow down to watch but wince at the same time. I personally would know how to loosen my man's tie and get him on the dance floor. For one I wouldn't sit there and pout with a long face, like a child, of course that would draw a negative reaction. I would flirt and be affectionate and bring out his playful side. He looked as though he was dying to have someone bring out a playful side.

    I think the type of personalities that sign on to do these type of "shows" are lacking in the self esteem department big time. Do any of these people have a moral code, a religious or spiritual bone in their body? Would they have conducted themselves this way in church or synagogue, being critical of someone's weaknesses ? Maybe they couldn't acquire fame by way of talent so they jumped at the opportunity to get that attention they desire at what ever cost. Even at the cost of exposing their dirty laundry, which EVERYone has. You can make anyone look bad if all you emphasize are their bad points, and if your own wife is doing it too, it must really make a man feel alone. Yes I feel like he was about to be the "fall guy" to bring in their ratings. I wish that he could have hung on. He would have eventually seen the light on the other side of the tunnel once he faced the fire, and got help. If only he would have realized that in the scheme of things these people and their over bloated opinion of themselves are irrelevant and just a joke that people tune into watch. Like going to a circus.

    It's said the men on the show made NO SALARY - they agree to do the show to support their wives who do make bank. Russell was depicted as boring last season.

    I worked in Beverly Hills for years and years, right out if High School, and came in close contact with many a decent individual and a fair dose of ass@#'s I assure you…LOL! Any of the guys I dated that happened to be born and raised in BH were all twisted or had some defect. It seems because L.A. is the center of the entertainment business it does attract an insecure type and I grew up here, so I had nothing to compare it too. It should be a study course in college.

    I am so sorry that Russell didn't have support in his time of need. That he felt he had to check out. I am so sorry that we live in a time when exploiting one's tragedies is profitable, from the networks, to the tabloids, to your spouse. He was too human for this show perhaps. I hope he finds the peace that he didn't find here on this earth. If BRAVO chooses to air the unedited version of "REAL (and I use that term loosely) House Wives Of Bev Hills" 2nd season, then I hope they also recap all the bullying directed at Russell as well.



  27. 27

    Interesting I never saw Russell criticizing anyone or talking behind their backs. Sure he was quiet and demure. He seemed like he was more of an observer. Maybe he needed someone that appreciated his qualities, that was equally demure. Taylor needed someone to entertain her. She was looking for arm candy. Her check list didn't consist of compatibility and maybe it should have been at the top of the list. Because when the sh_ _ hits the fan and the going gets tough in a relationship, it is the passion and compatibility…and hey let's not forget that little thing called love, that carries you through, not the money. It can't be the money because then resentment and one's true colors come shining through, when the money disappears. If you can't balance a check book, then you have no business spending money like she did.

    I appreciate a beautiful handbag and nice pair of Louboutin's just like the next girl, but I don't put them on like I'm arming myself with a loaded gun with which to aim at others. The personalities on the show come down on bloggers having an opinion about them that is less than favorable yet eat up the attention of the fans. Can't have it both ways darlings…If you can sit in front of the camera and diss people behind their back and then proceed to kiss them on BOTH cheeks the next day, you have no leg to stand on. ; )
