Taylor And Russell's Family In Agreement Over His Burial Arrangements.

Thank goodness they seem to have reached a resolution.

Despite Russell Armstrong's family doing nothing but criticize his estranged wife, Taylor, after his shocking suicide earlier in the week, it appears that the two sides have finally reached an agreement on how to bury the reality starlet's husband, and will have two separate services, in both El Lay and his native Texas.

According to Russell's very opinionated attorney, Ronald Richards:

"They have now, after the family went public through my office, provided funeral information to a relative, at 4:30 p.m., but have still yet called his mother, father, or sister. They [Taylor and her attorney] are playing fast and loose. They have kept the funeral location, service, and time secret from his mother, father, and sister. His sister and father have told me that Taylor has not called them one time. The dispute is anyone coming to participate in the funeral in Los Angeles, not sending his remains to Texas."

Meanwhile, Taylor's attorney, Troy Christiansen, is apparently "outraged" with the claims Richards has made to the press, and maintains that everyone is in agreement, and Russell's family is fine with the arrangements made.

We certainly hope so!

It's absolutely disgusting to us that so many would be coming after Taylor like this, especially after everything she's been through. Whether you like her or not, Russell was an adult, and perfectly capable of making choices and decisions, and although we imagine many grieving indiviudals are looking for a reason or someone to blame, it was ultimately HIM who agreed to do reality television, HIM who agreed to counseling, and HIM who sadly, tragically, chose to end his life.

It's nobody's job to crucify anyone else for this. It's their job to be sensitive and understanding of this profound loss for everyone left behind, and HELP EACH OTHER come to terms with it.

May Russell R.I.P., and our thoughts continue to go out to everyone affected by this HOrrific tragedy.

    Ronald Richards, Russel's lawyer, needs to shut his mouth!! He is literally shooting himself in the foot. Talking about his client / ex-clients personal life and details to the press?? Is he looking for publicity? Who the h*ll would want to hire Ronald Richards if all he does is burp personal details to the press. Even though Russel apparently abused Taylor over a period of time, which is not accepted (Why in gods name didnt anyone from bravo, RHBH or Taylor's friends CALL THE EFFIN' COPS ABOUT THE ABUSE?!?!?!?!), give the man some LITTLE last respect.

    Maybe mother, father and sister should have been the ones making the calls. Afterall, Taylor was still married to Russell, and probably very much heartbroken. Give her a break, people.

    "HOrrific" tragedy? Please tell me that was a typo, and not a snide remark.
